The original Bloodrayne was ok in its day too.

I'm fairly sure that the Bloodrayne character was inspired by a character in an older Terminal Reality game called Nocturne, btw.

I think it plays kinda like Thief 3 but that they've gone too cinematic. The AI is very reminiscent of Thief 3 and Dishonored. You know; the patrolling guys that can't see you even though you're 5 ft…

It seemed to me that LucasArts started slipping badly from crazy management around the time the SW prequels came in. There was that huge push to make a load of games for those awful movies and…

I'd say that it's definitely best to ignore the previews for games these days. The hype is really over the top for just about every major game. It's super easy to build your expectations beyond…

Mostly amazing game

Even though there's a good bit of cheese here, this game is impressive. I hadn't heard about it at all until I ran into a forum post about Boiling Point in a Far Cry 3 thread. It's a real shame that…

In a perfect world the game could write the story completely around my choices. But reality is all compromise of course.

Mass Effect's fake dialog choices disgusted me though I have to say.

Yeah and I think it's just Bethesda experimenting with ways to make the world more dynamic even though it makes no sense :). Fallout 3 had a revised system already. Skyrim will probably again have…

I like TES primarily because it tries to create that open living virtual world. It fails every time but it's the effort that counts (for me.) ;) I could even do without the RPG stats aspect, which…

The new EYE Divine Cybermancy game has that same lack of effort to get the player to care about the game world and its inhabitants. But EYE has more problems than just that. :)

I think D2 is an RPG-styled social gambling action game. Most of the MMORPGs are the same thing for that matter. These players are after light RPG mechanics, fantasy stuff (mostly) and chatting….

I think I remember dieing a few times there but it I didn't get stuck there like later on.

This is what I'm talking about. Just plain awful stupid dumb.

I hear ya on the more focused linear experience. Some people do like that kind of directed narrative more than the free-form games that make the story seem less organized.

I didn't. The escort mission is late in the game. I gave it about 20 tries but it was just too stupid. The guy to escort just walks straight on without pause through the exploding wall wart hallway…

As Frozen Fireball says, 2033's nothing compared to STALKER SoC. But it is a decent corridor rail shooter version of that kind of setting. I got pretty far but there is an escort mission later on…

I see lots of explosions and that's about it. Which is exciting for about 20 minutes in most games. :)

The planet scanning was stupid indeed. But I think that ME1's side missions and locations weren't much better in most cases and there were fewer of them. The Citadel was the best one I think and it…

Honestly I feel that way about both Mass Effect games. I have gone through ME1 about 3 times but I think I'll need years now to want to do that again. There's just not enough meat there and the RPG…

This is my take as well. I keep thinking of Killing Floor. It's a shame because the game has a unique look and feel that is nice. But it feels so hollow and it's frustrating with even reduced…
