Metro 2033

Tuesday, 27 July 2010 07:42 Published in Reviews
Creating a videogame based on a novel is surely no easy task, but that's exactly what Metro 2033  tries to do, retelling Dmitry Glukhovsky's book through the first-person shooter medium. The game takes place in the claustrophobia-inducing Moscow metro system in a world that's been ravaged by nuclear war. It's an interesting setting that sets it apart from other games using the apocalyptic setting, and Metro 2033 does a wonderful job of establishing a dystopia for you to wander through. But don't mistake Metro for being anything close to a Fallout 3-esque open world; this is a tightly scripted FPS with some clear survival-horror inspiration that unfortunately suffers from a number of glaring technical issues.

God of War 3

Tuesday, 27 July 2010 07:06 Published in Reviews
Debates over its final boss fight aside, God of War 2's ending made for good theater: Greek Kratos rode on the titan Gaia's back as she scaled Mount Olympus in pursuit of a gods vs. titans face-off with Zeus and friends. It served as a big cliffhanger -- literally or not, depending on your taste for puns -- which set up God of War 3 as the final game in the trilogy. Looking back on that ending now, it seems clear that the developers knew what they had in mind for the third game all along, but at the time it left a lot open to interpretation. Would it be an entire game on the side of the mountain? Or might Kratos participate in some kind of War of the Monsters-style spin-off?

Dead Rising 2

Dead Rising 2 is good. Very good, in fact. I felt like I needed to get that out right away. See, a few weeks ago I previewed the first two days of the game, and I found a title that was chugging in spots, suffering from really long loads, and generally not performing like a game that was about to come out. I reported that Capcom said it was aware of the issues and working to fix them, but even I rolled my eyes at the idea of the company getting everything in line for launch day. Well, it's not perfect and it is rough around the edges here and there, but Dead Rising 2 is definitely a winner.
