Champions of Norrath

About.com
16 June 2013
  • Conclusion: Snowblind, the developers of Baldur's Gate: Dark Alliance have hooked up with Sony Online to create the best Diablo-esque console game in years. Champions of Norrath: Realms of EverQuest takes the deep EverQuest mythology and sets it atop a hack and slash dungeon crawl. It's an amazing game... with a fairly bad camera.
  • Pros: Incredible blend of hack and slash with deep RPG elements, Clean graphics with lots of variety, Great voice overs and gorgeous music, Incredible blend of hack and slash with deep RPG elements, Clean graphics with lots of variety, Great voice overs and gorgeous music

  • Summary: I admire the ways Far Cry 2 differentiates itself from other first-person shooters. The lush open-world setting provides a cool sense of exploration, and the buddy system is an interesting way to provide alternative paths through missions. Despite these structural innovations, the basic gunplay remains decidedly average. The shooting mechanics are fine, but inconsistent enemy AI and few set-piece battles means every encounter starts to feel like the one before it.

  • Conclusion: Thought it may be a sequel in title only, Far Cry 2 is a fantastic shooter worthy of finding a home in any FPS fan's library. The gritty action is just what the genre needs and shooting is the main focus. Set in Africa the game feels alive and dangerous, and whether you're playing single player or multiplayer there's plenty to love and tinker with.

  • Excerpt: The competition in the FPS genre has never been higher, but certain developers are always up to the challenge. Take Ubisoft Montreal, for example, who have delivered a highly anticipated sequel that is entirely unlike the original title.
