Guitar Hero II Review
11 March 2010
Conclusion: Without a doubt, Guitar Hero II on Xbox 360 is a great game for what it intends to be, though with a couple of minor issues that RedOctane will hopefully improve in a future version. Also, any game’s song list has the potential to create an ongoing dispute—and for one that centers so much on its tunes, it’s that much more of a risk.
Conclusion: Dreamfall: The Longest Journey sets itself apart from the general Xbox populous in a variety of ways. For one, it is an adventure game which is a genre that has seen a decline over the years, and it also happens to be well done, making it a title that many gamers have been waiting on for quite some time. Secondly, this style of game lends itself to character development, which is something rarely seen in games today.
Excerpt: Princess Peach has been kidnapped by Bowser and your job is to save her. That is the storyline of pretty much every Mario game since such a thing existed. It's pretty simple, inconsequential stuff. Dreamfall: The Longest Journey, the middle title in what should be a trilogy of games, is nothing like Mario. The story is a rich tapestry of divergent plot lines, conflicting motivations and deep characterisation spanning across beautifully realised environments.
Summary: All in all Dreamfall: The Longest Journey is an adventure that everyone should definitely look into just because of how amazingly well done the characters and the story are. The gameplay is a little bit lack-luster and could have used some serious revamping to a degree, but in terms of the plot and characters it does make sense.
Excerpt: The Longest Journey was an adventure game that was praised for its interesting cast of characters and great storyline. It's been nearly six years since the critically acclaimed game was released, and ever since fans have patiently awaited for a follow-up. In April of 2006, their wait came to an end when Dreamfall: The Longest Journey was released for the PC and XBox console.
Excerpt: I recently took part in watching X-Men 3. Was I disappointed? Very. Shoddy script writing, lame action, and just plain awfulness. Sequels always disappoint me. Video games are usually no different. Sequel to one of the most interesting games of recent years, Dreamfall was one of my most anticipated games of the year. Sadly, like X-Men 3, it doesn't pan out too well.
Conclusion: Dreamfall: The Longest Journey is mostly successful at combining puzzles and adventure gaming in a single title. Recommended for fans of the original The Longest Journey. Not recommended for fans of games that end things up in a nice tiny package.
Excerpt: Dream a bigger dream. Dreams and games have a lot in common. Both occur while sedentary, both inspire false senses of accomplishment, and both are best populated by impossibly hot women who, under any other circumstance, would immediately flee your presence. However, there are differences. For one, you cannot control dreams, and control is essential to video games. Games also cost fifty bucks while dreams are free, which might be why they are worthless. Usually.
Pros: Engaging story, Fascinating characters, Gorgeous presentation, With no conclusion, Weak puzzles, Barely a game
Excerpt: I found this game very disappointing. Now to be fair, I didn't play this game for more than an hour, but it just didn't do anything for me. It seems like every 10 seconds it is loading a different screen. Dreamfall sells itself as having lots of subplots but the game moves so slowly why would you want to do them?
