NHL 2K7 Review
11 March 2010
Conclusion: I have a feeling that NHL 2K7 is the filler game that will hopefully get 2K through to 2K8, when they can redefine hockey gaming forever. Keep your fingers crossed. While the animations and physics are vastly improved, there’s too little else to like with this series. A general art direction overhaul seems to be in order, plus, a bit of A.I. tweaking could cut down on all-world goaltending occurring on any difficulty level.
Excerpt: Greg Hastings' Tournament Paintball Max'd for the Game Boy Advance could be an attempt to take advantage of the current lull in new releases for the system, an answer to the cries of GBA-owning paintball fans everywhere, or merely one more way to capitalize on the endorsement of pro paintballer Greg Hastings. But regardless of what strange series of events brought it about, the game is here and it's terrible.
Pros: Decent sound
Cons: Controls are awkward, frustrating, and just plain terrible, Grainy, pixelated graphics make it hard to see what's going on, All the play fields look the same, Limited play modes make it feel like you're playing the same 30-second match over and over again
Conclusion: Max’d effectively captures the mix of intensity and excitement, and properly using cover in arena paintball, and in the end it’s only limited by the confines of the sport itself. It can be a blast in multiplayer and especially online provided the game develops a solid fan base. However, the release of the Xbox 360 means that this is potentially unlikely. It isn’t really different enough from the first game to encourage a re-buy, either.
Conclusion: Indrømmet, jeg har aldrig selv spillet paintball. Jeg har derimod tit tænkt over det. Jeg har altid forestillet mig at det var lidt ligesom den scene i Starship Troopers, hvor Rico og hans hold lærer om holdarbejde. Bare med færre dødsfald og mere farvet maling. Jeg har forestillet mig at et ualmindeligt velkoordineret hold siksakker sig rundt om forskellige forhindringer, med nogle velrettet skud skræmmer modstanderen væk og gør, hvad der nu skal til for at vinde i...
Pros: Robust Xbox Live del.
Cons: Kedelig grafik og lyd. Dårlig AI i dine allierede. For lidt action.
