The Walking Dead 8/10

A very good story, no wonder it was GOTY for so many sites. However sometimes the characters atitudes were a bit off. And the ending left much to be desired.
Are they making another one?

Oddworld: Stranger's Wrath HD

This game is a game of two halves... (well more two thirds/one third to be honest.) I absolutely loved the bounty hunting aspect of the game, and the fact you can either kill them (for less money as expect) or capture them alive. The western aspect does work very well in a fantasy setting. All ammo have to be collected "alive", and part of the game is to seek out the ammo for yourself. The controls aren't a pain as I would expect on the Vita. I was loving this game until the final couple of acts while you've bagged all the bounties. It transformed into a generic, bland and dull shoot'em up. I have to said that I didn't think the same when it first appeared on the original X-Box.

It is a very challenging game (I often find myself abusing the quick save feature of the game.) even on the normal difficulty. I would find it difficult to recommend to anyone, as it's pretty a very much acquired taste of gaming.

I would give this game a 8 if it wasn't for the final few acts. A 7 is reasonable for it.

7/10

Binary Domain 8/10

Plot went bonkers (in a good way!) towards the end, and there's some rather huge leaps, but you just go with it. The acting/muscis/setting/action takes you along with it.

It's a good cover shooter/aciton game with strong characters and an engaging story. I wish there were a few more longer battle sections where you slowly advanced form cover to cover - mostly it seemed to be a room at a time.

The game ends with the "I get the feeling this isn't over"...but we're not going to get a sequel are we?

I know it's old, but obviously new people playing so ending discussion...

What happened to Cain? Assumed we'd end up fighting a mind controlled him. I had him High Trust which I thought might make him break free/return?

Bo - I'm assuming if he's lower trust he does turn on you? Seemed odd that he had high trust to pass that, but then died to the Robot Fist (or does he always die there? Suppose it's the easiest/simpliest way. He dies in any case, but the manner is different?


Some of the music too

Hexx, it requires Max Trust in order to get the best ending.

Strangers Wrath is an odd one (excuse the pun). Yeah the last act slips but it is still well worth playing. It is quite hard, as well - the very last bit, holy Jesus.

If it wasn't for the quick save feature I wouldn't be able to finish the game.

Funny enough I didn't find it that troublesome when I first finished it on the original X-Box.

Not sure about playing it on Hard difficulty. Some of the bounties made me rear my hair off, literally. It wasn't the bosses that was the problem but the normal enemies who swarm after you once you've taken off a decent chunk of stamnia off. End up killing them all for less bounty (and end up with 1.5k short of the 20,000 mo'olah trophy. :dread: )

Might as well go on a easy playthrough and nab the trophies, leaving the hard difficulty play-through trophy last. There's one thing for sure is that I wouldn't buy the PS3 version (until it appears as PS Plus or a heavy discount.)

Oof, you played on hard as well? It's difficult enough as it is on normal.

Remember me 5/10:

In spite of being linear with secrets just being found at the dead ends on every route, in spite of neo-paris being populated by brits and americans with the only elements of france present being the Eiffel tower (in the distance), Bastille (name only) and one line of text that I presume was missed and in spite of the massive strawberry floating orange buttons to do anything I enjoyed this and would (on the generous scale the videogames press uses) maybe have given it a 7/10. Then the ending happened :fp:

The combat's good, if shallow and low on enemy variety and the boss fights were generally pretty nice which is a change; the gimmick "memory remix" sequences were neat and didn't overstay their welcome and the few chase sequences were pretty good. Unfortunately all these positives are weighed down by the plot (which a game this linear and supposedly serious needs) which has so much potential but squanders it for the most part.

It appears to set up the devastation caused in your wake and it's similarity to that of the oppressive regime as a major plot point (almost like the early stages of spec ops in how everyone you go through ends up dead or a wreck) but then goes and ignores it for a finale that I can best describe as an unholy fusion of deus ex hr (unfitting ending), kotor (stupid twist/turn, fairly obvious something's up to boot) and mass effect 2 (inappropriate final boss) which does not suit the story in any way.


If you're wondering how it plays take the ledge climbing of uncharted and the combat of the batman games with more focus on combo-ing a single target.


tl;dr There was a neat idea here but the game takes no risks beyond that, how any games media thinks this is an 8/10 or so is beyond me and I enjoyed the game


I also tried Grid 2 and got bored of it after about 4 races so I guess I'm finished with that
2/10 because it at least works

Metroid Fusion: 7/10 - I remember this being a lot better then it is. After playing Zero Missions and Super right before it, it really suffers for not being as good, by a long shot - terrible bosses, uninspired levels and the game just forces you through the ending very quickly without much warning plus it doens't feel like it ever wants you to explorere, at all. It's still Metroid and the gameplay is solid but it just misses that something special. Oh well, now onto Other M

annnnnd Metroid Other M finished - 6/10. I actually didn't mind the cutscenes and all the story stuff, it was the rest of it I had more of an issue with - Very much like Fusion it felt very linear and pushing you in a direction with terrible bosses (in this case the bosses where FAR too easy) and the end stuff was far too cut scene heavy with no real big boss (Unless you go back and get 100%, that should have been the real boss)- it did get better towards the end with more abilities but still felt like one long corridor - plus it controlled badly, the jump between 3rd person and 1st person was an awful idea and it just felt too floaty to control - Overall it was stupidly easy too (8hrs26minutes to 100% it), with no challenge or urgency at any point, the use of bosses found in Fusion was strange seeing as the game is set before hand and made no attempt to explain why it borrowed so much - Still waiting for Team Ninja to make a decent game as well

Defiantly the two weakest Metroid games (I'd rank Other M as worse, II as 2nd worse then Fusion), Super takes the top spot as best Metroid game

I quite liked Fusion. I loved how you are pretty much hunted the entire game, it's kinda tense.

But yes, Super Metroid is the best 2D one for sure. I can't really decide whether I like it or Prime better, in terms of best game in the series. My brother is bringing down Metroid Prime Trilogy for me soon, so I get to play those games again :datass:

Uncharted 2: Among Thieves.

Easily the best Uncharted in the series. I enjoyed playing it on Hard difficulty and I have to admit that I played the game much more stealthy as possible. I am sure that I struggled at times while playing it on Normal difficulty two years ago. There are some sections that you can bypass the difficult gun battles if you manage to stealth melee the guards in a room, thus not raising the alarms and cut off the reinforcements spawning.

Definitely a 8/10 game.

U2>U1>Golden Abyss>U3. Of course this could change when I replay Uncharted 3. Before I thought the original one is better than Uncharted 2. But it doesn't matter as they all are brilliant.

Uncharted 2 got better the higher the difficulty was. As you say, taking out 3 people in a stealthy manner can cut out a fight with 20 or so enemies.

It's not so much a game as it is a slightly interactive story. It's dealing with some dark stuff, and you know they guy who wrote it is just pouring it all out at you through his game. It's a genuinely convincing depiction of depression, and a lot of the game will likely feel very familiar to a lot of people. It's a heavy one to get through, and it'll probably leave you feeling like gooseberry fool at the end of it, but it's a well told story, even if some of the dialogue comes across as a bit cheesy. There's not much to do, although, that's kind of the point, other than progress the story by just doing what the game tells you to do, heading from wall of text to wall of even more depressing text. As a result, it's quite short, but at £3.29, that's not really an issue.

As a game, I'd score it a 6/10, but simply as a creative work, an 8/10
