And yet I still want the game and an Xbox360 for Christmas please Santa. It’s not *bad*, it’s just not the world-changing event it’s been billed as. I’m quite surprised that EDGE gave it 10/10, though. I’m kicking it Old School with Medal Of Honour: European Assault instead. Stupidly long levels with no save points in them and getting progressively harder as one nears the end. I have died in the last 2 minutes of the half hour level I’m on at the moment so many times that I feel like I’ll have fought WW2 in real time by the end. Absolutely brilliant. I have not played the game, but this reveiw sounds about perfect. His Bioshock review is spot-on (and spollerific) too. Halo 3 is still worth having – it’s Quite Good – but on balance I think Bioshock was more interesting. Although The Orange Box – Half-Lfe 2 Episode 2 – is mere weeks away, and Mr Minerva (HL2 episodic mod) promised a new release this week too. Haven’t checked that one out yet. (checks) Minerva’s out. Yay with a capital yay. More here. I meant to say earlier that I didn’t actually know that anybody ever paid attention to the plot of a game. I know I don’t. I must not be serious enough about gaming, dude. ps. Fingers crossed for the safe arrival of Baby Bigmouth. Oh I dunno, I like games with stories if they’re reasonably interesting, or if – as with Lost Planet – they’re completely incomprehensible and therefore funny. But I think too many games attempt to add a story that’s sub-Schwarzennegger, and that’s neither interesting nor amusing. ps. Fingers crossed for the safe arrival of Baby Bigmouth.
