All About xGlenn11x
Men In Black was pretty bad, yet entertaining, but there are far worse than that. Back during the golden days of the Playstation 2, there were tons of licenses trying to make a go at video games. Much like Men In Black, several TV series also attempted the feat. Most of these games were aimed at younger audiences or at the hardcore fanatic. When I was roughly ten years old, I was a huge Yu-Gi-Oh! fan. I loved the show, and even more-so, the card game. I spent hours upon hours investing strategy for when I would go to tournaments with my friends. It was a hit nation-wide.
The Yu-Gi-Oh! brand would find itself into stores as a video game, known under the subtitle "The Duelists of the Roses". I had no clue what to expect. On one hand, I was a kid and thought, "ZOMG YU-GI-OH! VIDEO GAME!!!!" (Insert more druling) Then, on the other hand, I was like, "What? Roses? Whyyyyyyyyy????" None of it added up, and to this day, it still doesn't, and this game with ruin your love for the TV series and the card game, as it did with me. I played this game to death, loved it at times, and hated it at others! It took Yu-Gi-Oh!, and tried to make it into a medieval times kind of game, and the two are so far apart, it leaves this gaping hole that had no way of ever closing! Hence forth, you see where my interest in the entire Yu-Gi-Oh! brand simply died. Yep. Death incarnate.
If you were, or maybe still are, looking for a way to kill your obsession on this brand, play this game. It will do just that for you, and for me, I am forever grateful. This game attempts way to much, and if it had just been a simple card battle game minus the HORRIBLE looking monsters, I think fans would have appreciated it much much more.
#4: Yu-Gi-Oh! The Duelists of the Roses
For years and years and years, the Lord of the Rings series of books, movies, and games have been loved by millions around. There have been some great LOTR games before in the past, and some that were meh, to say the least. Then there are those that make you want to kill the developer for ruining not just the title that the game represents, but killing a former series that they made as well.
Pandemic Studios, which, as we see, no longer exists. There is reason for this, and the Lord of the Rings: Conquest is in my opinion, the prime reason for their demise. For those of you who also love Star Wars, you probably enjoyed Star Wars: Battlefront last generation. Phenominal game to say the absolute least. Well Conquest is almost an EXACT copy of that amazing series, but taking the LOTR name and taking what was an idea built for Star Wars just doesn't work. In fact, it is so bad, I laughed when wanting to call Sauron Darth Vader, or Gandalf becoming Obi Wan Kenobi. The combat is especially frustrating, and just does not fit the universe.
#5- The Lord of the Rings: Conquest
Wow, it has been a while Gamespot! I hope everyone is doing great, and with June literally 15 hours away, and E3 creeping up on us, I am ready to return to my consistent blogging and reviewing self. I am going to continue my Top Ten series, and then in this time frame, finish a ton of reviews that I have needed to complete. I have roughly five that are close to being done, and thus, it is time to return. I may be a top-1000 reviewer on GameSpot, but I plan on being Top-100 one day. On that note, without further ado, here is number 6!
#6: Men In Black II: Alien Escape (PS2/GC)
Okay, so last generation, I was still growing up and figuring out how to tell a good game from a bad one. This was a game that, sadly, I preordered as an 11yr old. Clearly I was excited about the Men In Black name on a video game cover, and that was a bad choice. I remember this game well overall too, considering it has been ten years since I played it. Overall, one thing consistent with my top ten series so far is the fact that movie tie-ins or spinoffs do not work 99.3% of the time. Why the spare .7%? Well King Kong was excellent as well as Spiderman: The Game (1st movie tie-in). I have rarely played other games based on movies that are good. Okay, maybe a couple of more come to mind, but that is alright. Why should you play this game?
Well, the fact that something so repetitive and so childish could be so amusing even ten years later is reason enough to play it. The game itself in my opinion is terrible, and the graphics largely contribute to that. Playing this game ten years ago, it reminded me of a Star Trek game more than Men In Black. It just did not make sense at all! Then again, not many movie-based games make sense (see Hannah Montana: The Movie (game)). I believe that game will go down as the biggest milking of a name ever. Who knows though!
Expect #5 of my series tonight as I continue to my old ways in full swing. I am going to be checking out a lot of other blogs to see what I have missed out on this past month. And for those who may have begun following me recently, as there are at least two of you, I take requests on reviews! I not only purchase games, but I also play a ton through GameFly, so if you, or anyone would like an opinion or full review on a game, just let me know in a PM and I will get to it immediately!
