Assassin's Creed III (PC) - 7/10

 

It's the first Assassin's Creed game I've ever played.

  • It was decent, but I was hoping it would be more stealthy.

I did read your post, but I nearly stopped reading after this.

Play the first and second, they are much better in every aspect except for free roam.

Yeah I've read that the second one was better for stealth stuff, character development, and overall story. Ezio's outfit is more assassin-looking than that of Connor's.

the first is the best out of the three for stealth and character development IMO.

Dang, I knew I should have purchased that bundle on Steam when it was on sale. >.>

Oh well, I'll wait until it goes on sale again.

 

I was playing it again today, is there any way to liberate areas after you complete the game? It seems that I've done everything I can but treasure/feather/trinket hunting. Brawler and Frontiersman missions seem to have disappeared even though I'm not 100% completed, for example. I can't seem to find the mission for Achilles' outfit either, and I've done all of Homestead icons/missions that showed up on all of my maps. Never mind, I forgot to purchase the tools from a shop in New York. -.-

 

Also, 2 questions:

  1. Why do triangle things appear all over the game? It's pretty annoying and uncalled for. e.g. when you hide in some bushes/grass triangles appear all over you, when you hide in a group of people in a riot triangles appear all over you and random lines connect to the circle icon above your head, when you see a mission person triangles surround them
  2. What's up with the random "buzzing" effect that appears throughout the game? e.g. when you unlock a door in the underground tunnels, when you rip a wanted poster off the city walls, when you upgrade a Homestead person and the building is reconstructed

Picked up Sleeping Dogs in the Steam Winter Sale, so here goes.

 

Pros-

  • Focus on melee combat sets it apart from other open world rpgs
  • Driving feels nice and tight (mouse and keyboard)
  • Storyline is good overall, seemed to be fairly well written
  • Amazing world: Refreshing to see an open world game not set in the U.S., and Hong Kong looks great
  • Side NPC conversations add to immersion, and can be quite funny (esp. the two women standing outside of the first apartment)

 

Cons-

  • Melee combat is repetitive, and gets old
  • Short main storyline, around 12-13 hours
  • Girlfriend segments end after the first date, seem to have been hastily removed (a message from Not Ping is received at one point in the game, but is quickly covered up with a phone call from another character, and there is no way to actually see the message, leading me to believe there were more dating missions, but they were removed for whatever reason)
  • Bad DLC
  • It is nearly impossible to fail gun sequences, as they are incredibly easy

 

Overall Verdict- 8/10

Sleeping Dogs has a great world, interesting story, and good mechanics, leading to what I consider to be a very good addition to the open-world RPG genre.

I picked up Black Ops 2 like a ******* idiot.  0/10....and that's putting it nicely.

post #3292 of 4750

Hitman Absolution 2/5 - Played twice, about 80-90%. I hate the "Attack of the Saints" level. Just, terrible, and I couldn't stomach having to do it twice.

 

Far Cry 3 4/5 - Worth building a new PC for

 

Sleeping Dogs 3/5 - Like the characters, story, but pretty bleh gameplay. I do like riding motorcycles.

It's not out yet...just a few more days, but I think Fire Emblem: Awakening will receive high marks from me. I'm a big fan of the USA's versions of Fire Emblem on the GBA and I didn't really like the ones on the GameCube, Wii, or DS.

Hopefully it will be a super memorable game like Final Fantasy Tactics Advance and the USA's first Fire Emblem game. I totally pre-ordered the special edition Fire Emblem 3DS bundle just for this game.

If you were a fan of Diablo 2, or just like adventure, hack-n-slash, dungeon crawler type games in general, you owe it to yourself to check out Path of Exile. It's free to download and play so there's no reason not to. It's still an open beta, but in my experience, it's bug free and enjoyable.

SWTOR: 6/10. What's here is good, and I'm enjoying the hell out of it. Proper cut scenes are great to have in an MMO, and they're very well made, the main storyline is very solo-friendly, and the fact that each character type has a different story is great. I am, however, having serious issue with being a F2P player. Technically, I'm a "preferred" player, so I don't have utterly ridiculous limits like only 2 characters, and only one quick bar, but it's still really, really restricting.

I've been in a few of the betas over the last year and am enjoying the open beta so far. Although I thought TL2 was fantastic, I love that POE brings back the dark, gritty atmosphere of Diablo. 

 

So far, POE exceeds expectations and is everything D3 should have been.

HOMM III - 9/10, back to the past for me. its everything i remember ;)

post #3298 of 4750

Max Payne 3 -6.5./10. And that's being generous. I'm partway through the last mission, the entire experience has been competent, but often frustratingly dull and irritating. One of those "what the hell were pro reviewers injecting into the nostrils?".

Considering that a lot of reviewers are being paid to give games high scores........yeeeeaaaaaa

 

Forza Horizon = 8.5/10

Forza 4 = 8/10

Black Ops 2 post patch = 6.5/10
