Suggestions for an xbox game please!
Gonna trade some games in at Blockbuster for a new one. I like most types of game except sports ones (exception being NHL which I already have). I don't use xbox Live- too many "pros" that take the fun out of it.
In the last 12-18 months, I've completed and/or played: GTA4
Great fun, great graphics but a little bit of the same old. Assassins Creed
Loved this once I learnt how to fight properly, completed it twice for kicks, and I can go forever in it without ever losing a fight now, can't wait for follow-up. Far Cry 2
Loved the first version on PC. Got really bored with this really quickly- I struggle with games like this on xbox, need a mouse to aim properly and got sick of killing the same enemies again and again by driving over the same bridge or checkpoint. Didn't get far into the game before I got bored- it was literally drive here, kill ****, drive back and kill the same **** you killed on your way there. ES4:Oblivion
Awesome game, played this loads a few years ago on then housemates xbox, then bought it for myself really enjoyed it despite thinking I'd hate it! Fallout 3
Actually got this on PC. Very absorbing, but not exactly great. Completed the main quest to realise I couldn't go back into the world, so tried several times to get back into it from an earlier point in the game but just get sick of it within 10 mins. Saints Row 2
Didn't get into it- too arcade-like and wanted GTA4 more. Now I've played GTA4, Saints Row has no appeal. NHL2009
Boring crap- not into arcade racing games, especially when they feel slow and hard to control Need for speed
Can't remember which one, quite a recent one but not the newest one. Quite good fun and immense feeling of speed, but a bit same old same old. Tom Clancys End War
Novel at first, giving voice orders, bit ultimately a bit crap and no longevity or desire to play it. Fable II
Got this on recommendation that it is a good adventure game. Its not. Very linear, very average, very flawed, crap fight system, though pretty and cute storyline. I've got bored of it very quickly and will gladly trade it in without even completing it.
Rainbow 6: Vegas
First one, not bad but not great, really didn't enjoy the permanent casino theme. Ghost Recon Advanced War Fighter
Again, only bothered with first one as I tend to get games late on when the price drops. Was ok, spent a good few hours on it but felt like I was playing for the sake of playing it, and I didn't like the lack of strategy that Tom Clancy games used to be good for, like the planning stages and stuff. FEAR
Played a few of the FEAR series on PC, liked the graphics and weapon effects but nothing new here, just a scary 1st person shooter.
Thats about it that I can remember (played Half-Life 2 to death over the years too).
I was looking at HAWX
but I have a feeling that will be a little boring and unrealistic after an hour of play.
Also looking at C&C: Red Alert 3
, but needs to be on PC really, and mine won't keep up with it now I don't think. Fight Night 4
looks very pretty, and I played 2 & 3 a lot, but I get sick of them once I get to the point of losing all the time, and the "training games" spoil it for me.
All the other titles in Blockbuster I don't really know anything about? They all look a bit weird
to be honest!
Any suggestions!!? I didn't think I was that hard to please, but I've been gaming intensely for over 15 years now so I guess its hard to find something original and its made me pretty critical!
