Disappointing game play and controls. Skip it; just buy the 40th Day sequel!
30 December 2014
Summary: I regret this purchase. I picked it up because my Dad and I had recently beaten Army of Two: 40th Day and there was one weapon that was not available unless you had a saved game from this first game on your playstation. So, I picked us up a couple copies and figured we'd get equal enjoyment playing this first release of the game together as we did its sequel. I was wrong. The gameplay was much less intuitive and the controls different, and didn't allow customization.
Conclusion: This game definately deserved the poor reviews it got. It is completely unstable (crashed 3 times in the first 15 minutes of me playing) and the controls just feel awkward compared to other 3rd person shooters of this genre. It feels like "The Club" with a story line... and not a great one at that. Needless to say, within an hour of me getting it through, it was already on its way back. DO NOT BUY, DO NOT RENT, DO NOT TOUCH.
Conclusion: I have to say i was really looking forward to this game after a long wait for the official rally game on ps3, but i am very disappointed. The game doesn't feel realistic or fun at all. The scenery graphics are not bad, but the graphics on the cars look like PS2 graphics. Also the engine noises on the cars sounds as if they ve been taken from a 90's sega arcade game or made using an old casio keyboard!! they re that bad!
Conclusion: i have waited YEARS for this game,i am a huge rally fan to the extent that i bought an old ps2 last year so i could play the old wrc games again... this new game is no better than the ps2 versions,in fact i would say it was worse!! the engine sounds are dreadful,the co-driver screams like a girl when you have a minor bump as if its the end of the world,stupid comments are very repetative,handling is awful,tracks feel completely flat,graphics are years behind the likes of...
Excerpt: = Introduction = Bought this game on the first day it was out. I still remember vividly all the hype the game was generating, all the overwhelmingly positive previews gamesites were reporting on the game. = The Good = To begin with, I thought the game had a tonne of potential to be a really good one. The basic idea behind the game is an interesting one - two characters teaming up, co-op all the way through the campaign and beyond.
Excerpt: I was really dissapointed with this game, I traded The Orange Box in to get this, and I am not messing, I finished it in about 2-3 hours on NORMAL! Also, there was no new masks came availble to buy once you finished the game and so far, no new paint jobs of the guns as well! The only thing that is SOMEWHAT good about the game is that the game is good crack when you have your mates round playing multiplayer, enough said!
Summary: Un jeu qui ma décu d'une force planétaire, le seul point positif est la Coop en amis. Si vous êtes seul, évité d'acheté ce titre, il est moche graphiquement, aucune sensation de tir, une gameplay lente et peu précise. Bref un fiasco commercial et de créativité, note du solo 09/20, mode réseau coop 11/20, la moyenne pile poil pour un titre a épillé de votre stock de jeu!!!
Summary: Ce jeu est une honte videoludique. Ce jeu n'est pas foncièrement mauvais, il n'est simplement pas terminé. En ce qui concerne les graphimes, ce n'est pas une tuerie mais ce n'est pas non plus désagréable à l'oeil. Les sons restent corrects, sans plus. Le vrai problème de ce wrc c'est le gameplay. La prise en main est irréaliste et presque injouable à cause d'une inertie et d'une glisse omniprésente. Aucun grip sur l'asphalte, c'est un comble.
