Well i have yet another review up, this one for assasins creed. Now i am not sure if anyone actually reads this blog but it just gives me a bit of satisfaction to post this stuff. As promised in issue 11 here are my impressions for my two new games - Final Fantasy XII and Kingdom Hearts i'll start with Kingdom Hearts.
As most people have i grew up with the Disney versions of classic fairytales and watched many of their original movies i.e tarzan and the lion king etc. Having not played many Final Fantasy games beside III and XII i was not amazed to see all the classic charecters excluding Cid. I am currently in the boss fight against Cerbureus. However this is my second trip to Olympus Colliseum (you don't have to fight him right away) and have done the first warp ring. The platforming is terrible and the camera is not that much better. The gummi ship sections are not that bad in my opinion. Yes they are nowhere near as good as the bulk of the game but they remind me of Starfox which has some nostalgia value. I enjoy it but the shadow this next game casts is just too big for this to hold a candle to it.
FINAL FANTASY XII
WOW! The story - epic, charecters - involved and you can see where this is going. This is the most value for money i have got in a while. Oblivion is one of the other two which gave me this much value (kingdom hearts being the other) i could go on all day about it but i won't so i am going to go play some now - i have just got out of the barhiem passage and i am building up my level before leaving rabanstre via the aerodrome.
