Hello people. this is a blog by me to update you guys on what I'm playing these days and to tell you what are my impressions about the games:
Assassin's Creed II:
I've already pre-ordered Brotherhood, and seeing that it's not even two weeks away from release, I got excited, and just to refresh my memory of what the series is all about, I began my fourth playthrough of Assassin's Creed II. I am having as much fun as I have ever had with this game- it just never stops getting exciting and thrilling. ACII has a lot of replay value, I must say, Anyway, I wanted to say that ACII is already a very expanded version of the original very ambitious Assassin's Creed, and if Brotherhood is going to be every more complex and deep than II, then man, it will be one heck of a game.
Not quite as good as I had expected it to be, possibly the most disappointing entry in this really good franchise. I loved the original Fable and Fable II even more so, so I expected a lot from Fable III, but somehow, it just feels very hollow, not alive like the first two games did. But I have to say, the world of Albion is very thoroughly buit. I'm about 15 hours into the game, and I'm only just halfway through, whereas the story should take no more than 10 hours to complete. This is because I am busy exploring the world of Albion and all that it has to offer. But still, Fable III feels very uninspiring, maybe the later parts of the game might redeem it. Let's see.
I'm into my fourth season with Manchester United, and I am loving this game like hell. I thought no good could match up to what FIFA 10 did, and I must say, FIFA 11 has outdone its predecessors in every possible way, very thoroughly. The realism, the presentation, the graphics, the deep and complex game are simply heaven for any football fan, like me.
God of War: Ghost of Sparta:
This has to be the most varied God of War game. I am one and a half hours into the game, and it has more gameplay variations than all the God of War games in the past, and I must say, this is a thousand times better than Chains of Olympus, which was just a very, very compressed form of the console God of Wars. Ghost of Sparta does not feel compressed at all, it just feels as awesome and thrilling as the console versions of the series. The graphics of the game are the best you will find on any, the presentation is marvelous, with spectacularly directed cutscenes and extremely intelligent camera angles. The gameplay, especially the combat, is awesome, and Combat Rush has to be the best thing that has ever happened to the God of War series. Expect my review of the game to be up in some hours exclusively on GamingBolt.com.
EDIT: My official editors review for the game is up on GamingBolt.com. Check it out here and find out what I think of the game.
I finished the single player campaign a long time ago, it is the multiplayer component that has kept me hooked for so long. It is simply so addictive, I can never seem to put it down. While it does recycle a lot of elements from Halo 3, its own new elements and the fact that Halo 3's online was already so awesome make this the best online I have ever played.
Mass Effet 2:
This is only my third playthrough of the game, and it is feeling a completely different game when compared to my second playthrough, which, in turn, was very different from my first playthrough. A testament to the incredible BioWare for making this experience so deep and varied that it feels like a different game every time you play through it. The gameplay is awesome and addictive, and characters are really good, and you feel attached to them, the story is typical space opera, which means a win-win situation for me, and the presentation is nothing short of a movie-like marvel. Not only is this the best game to have hit the Xbox 360 this year, but also one of the best games to have hit any platform in recent memory.
So yeah, that's it, only six games in my Now Playing section, but even this amount of games has managed to take up a hell lot of my time, and gaming is the only thing I do these days. All of these games are awesome.
