Call of Duty Ghosts (Xbox 360).

For all the macho bullshit, bravado and patriotism abound, I thoroughly
enjoyed this trip.

Plenty of running and gunning in beautifully realised environments covering
a broad spectrum of shooty shooty bang bang.

 

(Oh, and I didn’t have to switch down to easy, which I thought was pretty
good for me!)

 

No sure I’ll venture onto the multiplayer – maybe a slice of local split
screen – the ‘alien’ invasion game modes look tempting.

Batman Arkham Asylum 9/10, can see why people tend to rate it higher than city and would have to agree though I do like City as well.

Tearaway another 9/10 yawn  very clever use of the vita as the reviews have all tended to mention but the game is fun as well smile.

I have competed Wolfenstein: The New Order on PC.  

I am having a 2nd play through at the moment to go through the 2nd timeline.  I really enjoyed it but having played both 'Return to Castle Wolfenstein' and 'Wolfenstein' which I both loved, I would say this is my least favourite of the series.  I can't quite put my finger on it but something was certainly missing compared to the other games.  Could have done with a few more side missions and more open levels to explore.

Beyond : Two Souls. Well to be honest I have completed it 11 times, though that pretty much involved 3 full play throughs. First time played it through with no help, then when I knew the story I went back to Hoover up the platinum.

I enjoyed Heavy Rain and I expected this to be the same, however in many ways it didn't quite hit me as much. The problem with going back to Hoover up trophies is you eventually realise that you actually have little control over the game, at some times I sort of walked away made a cheese sandwich had a cup of tea and even though I was in control, Jodie still wasn't dead.

The first time you play though, there is an adrenalin buzz and you do feel that you are controlling the game. In some ways it's more like the old 'choose your own adventure ' books – does Jodie do X or Y, therefore if X then A, if Y then B. Unfortunately when you go through you find out that both X and Y ultimately lead to A. The story though is quite thought provoking, but to say there is much original thought in it would be untrue, there are the usual tropes, and some of the things you do as Aidan were done before (and much better) on the Xbox in Second Sight. The CIA action sequences are padding, though the QTEs are slightly better implemented than in Heavy Rain.

Overall 3/5.

Completed Elite Sniper 3.

 

It’s a bit glitch in parts; never get tired of the X-Ray affect. Never get tied of shooting Nazi’s. Starting my second run through now.

 

Put Watch Dogs just could n’t get in to it

WatchDogs on PS4 

 

After the first one/two acts the game really picks up and i felt myself actually wanting to carry on with it and follow the story, not ground breaking by any means but enjoyed the end result. i will also go back and finish off some of the side mission bits and pieces

 

3/5

Far Cry Blood Dragon.

Great romp and 80s nostalga fuelled neon shooting fest. Wafer thin story with its tongue firmly planted in its cyborg cheek.

I really enjoyed Far Cry 3 and on reflection, maybe this was a bit of an overdose. Terribly dark throughout, but punctuated with a vibrant dayglow pallet, its an assault on the retinas!

Loads of exploring left to do, but there's not enough to draw me back to it….but it will forever sit on my hard drive.

Far Cry Blood Dragon, excellent game. Loved the music, graphics, good craic. 9/10. Still have to finish Far Cry 3, shame on me. 

 

Dead Rising 2 Case Zero. Short but very sweet. 9/10.

Sleeping Dogs & all DLC – Platinum.

Well that took a while – but I grew to love the game. I see Batman influences, (the combat system), obviously GTA and it also reminded me a bit of Shenmue. It's being re-released prior to the follow-up (Triad wars) later this year.

It is very violent, and the story is pretty much telegraphed throughout, but a great fun game. A solid 7/10.

Now working through Far Cry 3 – so far a good game to play, but I'm too busy finding things to complete the story.

Good:

Stunning visuals

Ubi Art Engine art style

Clever combat system

Audio

 

Bad:

Story was rather too arty and abstract for my liking

Stupid rhyming text, that really struggled to rhyme at times or read badly to make it rhyme.

No health bars for enemies

Bland spell animations in combat

 

Overall an enjoyable jaunt, would give it 6/10
