Far Cry 3 -
This is one of those "I really don't get why it's so loved moments" There are times when I can appreciate why people do like something. For example, Dead Space, i can see the attraction but it's not for me. It's a well crafted game.
Now far cry on the other hand I just don't get it. I only lasted 2 days. The AI is awful, the enemies constantly appear en mass on the road, the side missions are dull and samey, those stupid broken down cars are everywhere and fixing them does nothing? The silly races that break the economy because I could just endlessly race the same one, the combat feels off and unexciting, the bullet sponge animals, the fact animals are bloody everywhere! It's not an island it's a sodding game park! The crafting thing is just pointless. I like crafting in games but here it just feels tacked on and dull. The pointless skill tree where I have to spend points gaining "skills" that are simple every day things normal games give you as granted. The fact the cars have no analogue controlled is really stupid. The whole thing feels padded out and half arsed.
I know this gets a ton of love and the will be a very minority view point. I just can't see why! Definitely not for me, sold it yesterday
Two worlds 2 -
I really wanted to like this. It feels like it has a great world ( looks beautiful) and has a great story to tell. It also obviously has a lot of depth but here is the but it's far too clunky and unpolished. Maybe one day I'll get back to it but for now it's abandoned. Shame.
