Que long winded answer/review...

It is 100% a solid rental especially if you want to experience a GoW-esque game set in first person. I opted to purchase for the GoW3 beta and I personally will get plenty of replay value with the different gamemodes

It is a FPS so they arent known for long campaigns anyways so if I get 8 hours out of it, Ill be happy. I think there are 7-8 Acts (broken down into chapters) and I only reached 3-1 after 2.5 hours of playing. Im sure if you blasted through the whole thing on easy, it could be done within 5 hours but Im playing on Very Hard (to bang out all 5 difficulty achievements at once) and Im taking my time exporing around. Without exaggeration, Very Hard in this game is nothing like Veteran in CoD or Legendary in Halo. Its honestly like Im playing CoD on Normal so I recommend playing on Very Hard from the start.

Controls feel smoother then the demo but I had huge issues with the default sensitivity. It is set in the middle of a bar and seemed way too fast for my eyes to adjust with the shaky cam. The game has the same GoW appearance visuals as you are running or moving but it is a little disorientating being set in first person. I dropped the sensitivty to 1/4 up the bar and things got much better but still took about 30 minutes to full adjust to it.

There is definitely a lot of replay value trying to get 3 stars in every Echo mode and by playing Anarchy mode (Horde). It will take quite some time to level up to 65 in Anarchy and you only get xp if your team completes a round and its hard as balls if you arent working together and doing the team skillshots for huge points. You need to reach a set score to progress to the next level and the highest I made it yesterday was round 12 before the host disconnected. Most of the time I only made it to round 6 or 7. Its a really fun mode with a good team but if everyone is just killing for themselevs, you wont get enough points to continue.

Youll either love or hate the humor. Its very brash toilet humor and Im chuckling at more jokes then not.

Graphics are very nice with plenty of fantastic backdrops and lighting effects.

Im actually quite surprised with the game after playing the demo. I was looking forward to this game and I felt the demo let me down a little. I think it put a few people off because they assume the whole game is just run through shit as fast as you can killing in different ways for a high score. Thats merely a bonus mode in addition to the campaign.

Its still a little early but I would give it a 7.5/10 right now.

RIP Waggleton P. Tallylicker

This. I haven't even played BS yet. I'm sure I'll get around to it. I didnt even play the demo so hopefully the full experience will blow me away. its been awhile since I played a FPS that can hold my interest and this one looks right up my ally.

Even if you dont care about anything other then the campaign, you cant go wrong with the rental. Im just over half way through and its been a fun ride. Story wise, its nothing new but the gameplay is fun in just trying to kill enemies in different ways and using the environment. Like I said though, play on Very Hard (its literally normal mode) to make the most of the achievement whoring ways.

About to finish up Dragon Age: Origins. l've been sitting at the end for a while, the part where the dragon-demon-thing is loose and you have to make your way through the burning town. l just got so damn fed up with the shitty combat system that l set it aside for the last year or so. But l like what l've seen of Dragon Age 2, so l want to be able to port my completed save over to this sequel.

played the Dragon Age 2 demo

Fucker froze on me, but from what i played it seemed, alright. the graphics i thought were ugly, the characters looked half assed and the combat played like a poor man's dynasty warriors. I never played the first one so am I way off here or what? I skipped the first one and if the full game is anything like the demo I will skip this one as well.

One thing that really annoys me was that ghost like walk the characters do in MMo's of old and now on Dragon Age 2. Like they are gliding up the or down the land, and not actually walking on it.

The graphics weren't top notch in the DA:O, nor are the here. But, the sheer volume of the game kind of makes up for that. The graphics for some players seemed better than others. Isabella's ass graphics seemed top notch.

The combat kind of felt like Dynasty Warriors, now that you mention it. But it's more tactical as a team effort. The gliding over the ground animation is kind of lame. The last game didn't move nearly that fast. But, I'm for the faster gameplay, so I can look past it.

You don't necessarily play a game like Dragon Age solely for the combat, in the same sense that Mass Effect isn't really about shooting laser guns. The story and character interactions held withing the product is where the meat of the game is.

playing Killzone 3 and ....its alright, Personally I feel the shooting mechanic is not as tight as something like MW is. the graphics are brown, and something about them is off. Like the eyelashes stand out so much more then anything. That and the fucking helggis take a lot of ammo to dispatch.

Maybe my feelings will change.

I also rented Bulletstorm to see how that plays out.

I must be near the end of Undead Nightmare, as I returned the mask to the catabombs and became a zombie.

'Took home MafiA 2 tonight for free on a gift card. So far it's like a GTA world with mafia missions. I actually enjoy the 40's music in cars. FUNKY.
