Bullet Witch – XB360

  • This is another of those games that I could only sit through for an hour. It’s that bad!
  • It’s good looking third person shooter with “magic”
  • You play as the Bullet Witch (there is a name it doesn’t matter… really it doesn’t). A girl roaming post apocalyptic America in your hunt to kill demons from below. Pretty standard fair.
  • The opening cutscene for this movie will make you want cringe as it plays much more like a commercial for the game than an actual intro to the “story”.
  • Gameplay is the standard 2 analog stick moving and aiming setup with your shooting and dodging attached to the triggers
  • the shoulder “buttons” and the face buttons are used for your awesome witch powers which are not quite awesom and not quite witch like…
  • The control feels sluggish, there is no target snap and dodgin involes thes over the top spread eagled jumps that make Lara Croft’s flips look like falling down drunk.
  • The powers that I saw included a wall that is great to stop bullets, both the enemies and yours… and it disappears pretty quickly. a force push that doesn’t effect the enemies (or at least I couldn’t get it too) and this big lightning effect that you have to aim a t a big tank to continue a certian part. Oops the Tank shot and killed me while I was setting all that up! Oh yeah you can heal civilions too. Ooooh whoose the badass witch now?!?
  • The graphics are pretty, but the animations are clunky just like the controls.
  • The audio again is okay. It’s nothing to write home about.
  • This is an ignore.

Valkyrie Profile 2:Silmeria

  • builds on a great game
  • Amazing 3d look in essentially 3d game
  • Battles are cross of Tactile / real time
  • Engrossing Story.

Red Steel – Wii

  • The first FPS on thw Wii.
  • Not a great game, but hardly a stinker
  • The control is really difficult to get used to, but once you do it is servicable
  • The graphics are stylized, but still not great. They try to go to realistic.
  • Again sound is okay but not great.
  • This is a rent for it’s novelty… not for any other reson.
