    ICO HD

    First time I've played this and would now put it in my top 10. Enjoyed the visuals and gameplay despite it's age. Beautiful ending.

    10/10

    Out of interest, does SOTC have a similar atmosphere to ICO?
    Somewhat. It's a very different game, though, despite being eerily similar.
    I'd say the atmosphere is definitely similar. A real sense of companionship permeates both games. There's an air of empty sadness in both too. The gameplay is different between the two though. SotC is superior.

    Loved the visual style and atmosphere in ICO, but did stop playing a few hours in as the gameplay didn't really win me over. This was years ago on the PS2.

    I've got it on my PS3 though, so I'll give it another try soon, as well as SOTC.

    Yeah, playing the SotC, somehow you get the feeling that you're in the same world. But I think that Ico is the better game, although SotC is more accomplished in many ways.

    Both Ico and SotC have an exceptional sense of scale. There are much bigger worlds in games, but none that make you feel smaller.

    Sleeping Dogs.

    Been trying to sort out my backlog recently, getting the "big guns" that have been on my shelf for ages out of the way before the next gen (without a huge amount of success).

    I don't get what all the fuss is about with this though? It was just so very average. A short, badly-written story. Cars that that handled like little toys. Awful gunplay, and a combat system that ripped off Batman but without the depth. Dull side missions, dull characters, terrible choice of music...

    It's not bad per se, and a sequel could hopefully improve things (and I'm aware of its troubled development), but I don't see anything in it to warrant the odd amount of hype and praise it received.

    Ratchet: Gladiator

    The weakest of the PS2 Ratchet games but when they're this much fun, that isn't saying much really.

    8/10

    Looking forward to Nexus in a few weeks

    Thought I would ask this in this thread. Are Goldeneye 007 Reloaded and 007 Legends any good?

    Reloaded isn't bad, but it's nothing that will set your world on fire. Avoid Legends like the plague though, seriously.

    Apparently it actually means something in German.

    my username just used to be my login at a job from years ago though. It doesn't actually mean anything, at least not deliberately.

    Thank you :) Right then, so it's buy Reloaded really cheap and shoplift Legends :D

    @darkmorgado Seeing as the combat in Batman is effectively button mashing, that's hard to believe :D

    There's a lot more to it in Batman though - the gadgets all have specific uses, for example. Combat has a much better flow for chaining together your moves, and the window for counters is far tougher and nowhere near as lenient as Sleeping Dogs.

    You can't keep a combo going theoretically indefinitely in Sleeping Dogs, and there's very few possible moves, even after unlocking all of them and finding all the jade statue things. And no additional tools either. It just lacks the depth of the Arkham games (and they do have depth! Quite a bit actually).

    Journey

    Have had this sitting there for over a year, thought I would try it on Saturday when I had a spare moment. Ended up nearly going through the whole game in one sitting, finished it last night and this is the ultimate in quality over quantity.

    It looks beautiful throughout and meeting other travellers feels like you are moving into the unknown together. The soundtrack is stunning and really adds to the atmosphere as well. It's something that is so unique and such an experience, would recommend it to anyone that has a vague interest from what they have seen.

    Can't wait to see what thatgamecompany come up with next.

    Wow/10

    Gadgets aside, I found the core beat em up to be completely lacking depth, I remember we had this discussion before now :D

    I've only played Arkham City, and I beat each horde of enemies by just spamming roll and counter basically. Really, really easy. I haven't played Sleeping Dogs but I find it hard to believe the core mechanics have less depth. I thought the flying and grapple hook mechanics in Batman were awesome, flying around the city was superb, but the fighting mechanics were basic, boring, and easy.

    The last of us.

    Lasted between three and four hours. Gameplay very dull but everything else outstanding so I watched a three hour cinematic video on YouTube of the whole game and it was as good as watching a film.

    So um as a game 5/10 but due to the great characters and story 8.

    Funny how my tastes seem to be moving away from the average critics, they all gave it 10

    @neilka That's because he didn't finish it and thinks that watching the cinematics on youtube makes up for that.

    I found it a strange game that I frequently wanted to abandon but could not as I refused to admit defeat. (Whereas almost every other game I have got bored with and ended up abandoning despite wanting to continue).

    Definitely a case that difficulty is a huge motivator for me. (To many games are so desperate to be completed that they become challenge free and rather boring).

    You didn't complete it. Doesn't count.

    The clue is in the thread title.
