X-Com: Enemy Unknown & Enemy Within (PC)

 

Experience

Finished Enemy Unknown  (30hrs) and Enemy Within (20hrs) on Normal.

+

  • Simple game play but still involves strategy
  • Many extras curricular activities aside from battling
  • Solid ambient music
  • High replay ability

-

  • Repetative
  • Missing many quality of life features; like highlighting multiple soldiers for overlook

General Thoughts

  • I would suggest playing Enemy Within (DLC) and bypassing Enemy Unknown all together. EW has the exact same story with a greater variety of missions and upgrades.
  • I found myself playing way past my bed time wanting to just do 1 more mission which ultimately led to another mission and so on. #onemoregame
  • I was constantly reloading my save due to bad decisions.
  • I played through the game twice over within a 2 week period and could probably give Iron Man Mode a shot.

Portal 2 (PC)

 

Experience

Finished single player campaign. Est. 10 hours gameplay

+

  • Fun and difficult puzzles
  • Story
  • Simplified game play
  • Auto-saves at appropriate places

-

  • Lack of music

General Thoughts

  • If you’ve played Portal 1, the first 3/4 of the game is a joke. But the last 1/4 is definitely worth it.
  • Haven’t tried co-op so I can’t comment on the other half of the game
  • Even though the puzzles during the first 3/4 were easy, the banter between Wheatley & GLaDOS is worth the play through

Castlevania: Lords of Shadow 2 (PC)

Experience

Finished the game on “Creature of the Night”. Est. 20hrs of game play
Currently mid-way through Revelations DLC. Est. 5hrs of game play
PS3 controller w/ MotionJoy

+

  • Graphics
  • Fast-paced and fluid fighting
  • Voice Acting was decent enough
  • Plenty of freedom to roam about
  • Fulfilling grotesque scenes
  • Difficult bosses
  • Auto-saves at appropriate places

-

  • BGM – found myself muting it halfway through the game to play other music
  • Impossible to skip rooms of monsters for previously cleared areas
  • Skill purchasing – Too expensive
  • Keyboard and Mouse
  • Back-tracking is to be expected in any Castlevania game but to return to the same spot over and over to get 1/5 fragment of hp is just delaying content.

General Thoughts

  • The story line was simple but provided enough twists to be enjoyable.
  • Although there were over 20 skills per tree, I found myself only using 3-4 and only 1-2 of the fire.
  • The Revelations DLC is amazing. The rewards for secrets and skills are right where they need to be.
  • Friend played with Keyboard and Mouse and said the game is unplayable

Trailer for DLC (Spoilers)

Waiting.

So it’s that time again where I run outta things I really wanna do in my MMOs. I’ve pretty much quit the game that used to occupy the majority of my time, Dragon Nest, and replaced the time with various mobile games and dailies in Guild Wars 2. Since I now have a bit more free time I’ve decided to play games that I ignored for the past 5 years; one player games.

While playing a couple of these games, I also decided to want to write a mini-reviews for them. The games that I plan on reviewing are far from new, like Portal 2 and Castlevania: Lords of Shadow 2 but just like  my blog, the reviews are mostly for myself; a way to gather my thoughts, if you will.

I do plan on returning to the MMO scene one a few titles come out but until then, one player errday.
