A few completed lately|
as a pure shooty experience, it's up there with the best I've played. Weapons feel suitably weightly, level design is pretty good, with a few options as you head through the corridors, and just about enough variety in enemies.
it's also blessedly free of collectibles (only 1 kind, which have another in game use), and mixes things up with a well developed racing mini-game as well as several other smaller ones, and various other bits of random stuff to do.
On the negative side, the story is about as pasted on as it gets, and it perhaps goes on an hour or two too long, although that's perhaps my fault for doing a little too much of the completely optional racing mini-game.
It also has just about the worst boss fight in the world, in a mid-game boss that is ludicrously repetitive to kill, but incredibly easy to avoid dying, just no fun at all.
One disadvantage of playing so long after releases is that the MP aspect is almost entirely dead, but the bits I saw seemed decent enough, without being inspiring.
All in all, a solid 4*
The Wolf Among Us
After the Walking Dead, I felt I had to give this a try, despite knowing nothing about the comic book it's based on. Well rounded world and well drawn characters meant that didn't really matter.
On the first episode, it perhaps wasn't quite up to Walking Dead standards, but that was a slow burner as well, and I've signed up to the season pass for the rest of it.
Anomaly: Warzone Earth
reverse tower defence, where you control the creeps, with a silly B movie story in the background. Very enjoyable, tricky in places, and multiple difficulties for replay value. Will carry on playing this to full completion, and well worth a look for anyone who likes light strategy on the 360
Golf: Tee It Up
picked up for a pound or two in a recent sale, and have had plenty of enjoyment from it. Very light and fluffy, but the appealing graphical style certainly gave me enough of a golf game fix, seeing as I can never be arsed with a whole Tiger Woods type game.
