WHAT PLAY YOU!? Version 2.0

Recommended Posts

Just finished Ghost Recon: Future Soldier. Actually that's a lie, I got so pissed off with the final mission I decided to fuck it off. It's a fairly decent point and shoot game that requires some level of intelligence for tactics (and I do love tactical games) but it really fell short in terms of story (I just couldn't give a fuck and skipped the cut scenes), graphics (mainly the cut scenes and not the game play. It looked like it was on PS2), and the length of time to reload from checkpoint. The last point in particular was incredibly annoying, especially those difficult missions where you had to restart a few times. It would play part of a cut scene which you couldn't skip through and a load of on screen bullshit as to where you are, time of day etc. I just wanted to get straight back into it. The last mission in particular really pissed me off. Yes the mission was hard but I had every intention of completing it, but having to wait 20 odd seconds before actually getting stuck in again each time just got incredibly tedious.

 

I have a few other games to get started on but not sure which one to go with yet. I have Killzone 3, Rage & GTA IV. GTA I'll just play every now and again I imagine, having played through it twice before. And I will more than likely purchase Arckham City soon, and maybe the last Assassins Creed also.

 

The last AC is just busy work. I would avoid it. Arkham City is a btilliant game. Love that Sleeping Digs uses the same fluid action. Getting bored of the missions though now.

Must add to the love for the final PES demo. Didn't think the first demo was too different from last year but after this demo it seems a lot better and apart from a few minor things, which might just be because it's a demo, it definitely seems on the way back to how it used to be. Actually tempted to preorder it now.

Anyone else playing Darksiders 2? I've put about 5 hours into it and so far, the game just seems to be a boring mix of simple platforming, simple puzzles involving rolling balls into holes and battles that mostly last around 30 seconds. What makes things worse is that your character walks so damn slow making walking across a dungeon feel like a tedious trek.

 

Does it get any better at all? I do enjoy the simple, flowing battle system when I get to a challenging/boss fight and I'm a sucker for loot games, but if its just crappy dungeon after dungeon, I might as well cut my losses and go and get Sleeping Dogs.

I don't understand why there was so much ype for Darksiders 2. The first one was fucking shit.

The thing is, the game is getting praise from loads of people on gaming sites and forums. I honestly don't understand why unless it gets better as the game goes on?

bit late but I finished Sleeping Dogs the other day, really really good fun. Varied missions, good combat and the driving is class.

 

Finally get to start Transformers now!

I'm so far out on the loop when it comes to games, I've only now just got a look at Sleeping Dogs, I think I'll be picking that up pretty sharpish. I'll be picking the new Fifa up as well. I got really into the Virtual Pro and Ultimate Team stuff in last years game before a corrupt data file fucked me over. Those 2 games combined should see me good for the next year.

I'd suggest saving yourself some time by stopping now if you're not enjoying it after 5 hours - it doesn't improve. If anything, the further you go the more obvious it becomes that you've done it all in other games before (but better). I loved the first one so it was pretty upsetting to see how plain the sequel is - I got rid of it and then moaned about it here. Trade it in while the value's still half decent and put the money towards something else!

I've not played Darksiders for over a year purely because I can't beat the first boss. Apparently it is notoriously awkward, but I still feel shit for not being able to do it.

 

I gave in and traded it away for the exact same reason, just bought it again on the cheap knowing full well that bitch is still waiting to humiliate me again.

Fuck it, I'll trade it in over the weekend then. Don't suppose you have links to your other reviews to you? Your absolutely spot on with that Darksiders 2 review, and if I find myself agreeing to some of your other reviews, you may become my go to guy for game-buying advice :love:

 

Whats everyones impressions on Sleeping Dogs?

I know it's not a UK based tourney but give Gamebattles a try, list yourself as a free agent, post on the forum saying that you're after a team and see if anyone will pick you up :) GB is part of the reason I still play shooters and FIFA, makes it a little more competitive lol xD For Madden, there's a singles ladder and a team play ladder, might be worth a shot on the singles to meet a few other good players and then team up :)

Haha thanks for that! I've only done two reviews so far though, and the other one was for a DVD. I was hoping to do Borderlands 2 in a couple of weeks but I'll be away when it comes out :(

 

 

Is anyone playing the episodic Walking Dead game? The third part that just came out was fucking awesome!

 

Seconded!
