Apparently there's no thread for the first game.
But anyway, it's a nice little game. Happy I got it for free, because it really feels like a PS2 game.
I've been addicted to it the last few days, I feel kinda guilty for not paying for it
I guess it got me interested in the sequel which wasn't on my radar before.
It feels like Crackdown but slightly different to me. What makes you say PS2? because it's a little rough around the edges?
Yeah I guess, and the production values feel like the way PS2 games did things. The cutscenes are a little jerky and robotic, for example. The presentation of it all feels like it could be on PS2, even if the open world wouldn't be possible. It's hard to put my finger on it, it just feels like a PS2 game to me. It doesn't have the bells and whistles most current gen games have, even if they are superfluous.
That said, I'm really enjoying it. I'm just about done with the first island, and I do quite enjoy just jumping around all over the place. I'm undecided about the platforming. On one hand, the fact that you can jump from one end of the island to the other with your eyes closed by holding up and hammering A repeatedly is kinda game breaking. On the other hand, it is pretty fun. It's odd just how generous they've been with the platforming, it's often difficult to reach the ground sometimes. But I love the dynamic of being safer and more effective on the rooftops. I mostly don't want to be on the ground, and look to get on the roof as soon as possible, which is pretty cool, and a refreshing way to play a sandbox game. Also the soundtrack is fantastic.
The offer worked, cause I'm interested in the second game now. What have they changed for it? Is it better?
