I don’t like reading reviews. Too many words. That’s why I started writing super short reviews myself. I had fun doing that last time. Did you like it too? Good news! I gamed enough again so here’s 10 more single sentence game reviews!
Unreadable facial expressions and awkward pauses aside every choice sticks and there are some tough one’s to be made in this tale of people you hate or like or care about.
Dead Rising 2
I felt both laid back by the daylight setting and stressed out by the ticking clock and oh there are zombies too.
Constantly kicking ass and constantly being challenged doing so and still making you feel like a badass is an accomplishment.
It looks cute and plays delicious but dying a thousand deaths feels like something from an age I left behind on purpose.
It has pointless looting, unfitting combat and a heroine that looks like a pedophile’s dream but it’s staged in a world I will remember for years.
It would only be acceptable if this too gunfight heavy spectacle was not a game about Lara, the undisputed queen of climbing.
The Last of Us
High polish and pacing trick you into believing that sneaking and choking from cut scene to cut scene is something extraordinary.
In its mechanics I see no innovation at all but damn this love story makes me want to hug and never let go these people.
Even its insanely cool dark style and setting and glorious world can’t pull me through dying over and over and over again.
That’s it. I have a few more games stacked on my couch. I’m just buying to to release a whopping ten more reviews in a third part. In the meantime feel free to discuss games and gaming with me on Twitter.
