Episode 5: Tomb Raider

Posted by abootgames on February 27, 2006

I do have to apologize, there is a small segment aboot 20 minutes in where the audio gets real scratchy. This only lasts aboot 4 minutes. I am not sure why but I will do my best to make sure it does not happen again.

Games we are playing:

Call of Duty: Big Red One – another in a great series, but still just more of the same. Decent FPS with a great story that just sucks you in. The online part was not as bad as I heard the 360 vesrion.

DOA4 – Not as good as expected. It feels unfinished. Although the visuals are stunning, particularily the backgrounds; the actual gameplay is rough. Colision detection is so bad that during moves legs often go through each other. Overall not a good reason to buy a 360. Also the game is kind of insulting because everything is based on sex, sort of like if they put enough sex into it it’ll be good. Shame on you Team Ninja.

Untold Legends: Brotherhood of the Blade – a button masher action adventure. Not that great but entertaining enough. The sequel should be out soon and hopefully it will correect certain issues, like all the armour looking the same. Only 4 classes mostly the same.

NFS: Most Wanted – Pretty racing game, real time lighting is magnificent. Control is pretty good with the 360 controller. Good selection of cars. My only real complaint is that the acting goes a little too far beyond the expected overly dramatic.
