Red Faction: Guerrilla Is A Snoozefest

I generally enjoy open world "sandbox" games. RFG is that type of game, but man it's not doing anything for me. My major complaint is how dull the environment is. You play as a miner on Mars. Now think of just how boring the landscape on Mars is. They nailed it. There's nothing exciting to look at. It's boring. Another complaint I have is that the game feels very reptitive. I don't mind doing things over and over in a game if the things I'm doing are fun. I'm just not having any fun with the missions. Another problem I have is that your enemies are sharp shooting maniacs who are relentless and just keep coming no matter how many of them you kill. These guys could shoot a penny from 100 yards away. Basically you have to go to an area complete your objective and then get the hell out of there as fast as you can because if you stick around to fight them all you will die. Maybe I just suck at this game, but I found myself dying often. Needless to say this game is going back to Gamefly tomorrow.

I'm also playing Turok. I'm far from impressed. That may be going back soon as well. I'm at the point now where I'd rather use my Xbox 360 to stream Netflix movies than play games. I feel like I've played just about every good game there is to offer on the 360.

Look for Prototype coming out this Thursday. That game looks to be awesome and I heard from one guy who already has it that he is in love with the game.

Prototype is a must play game for me. Can't wait to play it.

I've had bioshock for 5 weeks, and I'm not halfway done. I like it but I'm ready foe something else. Not sure I'll finish it. I can't play it for long before getting frustrated with it.

I loved Bioshock. I played it for hours on end. I don't remember getting frustrated all that much, but there were a few times for sure.

Prototype should be in my mailbox today. Can't wait to go home and play the game. I hope its there.

Sent bioshock back without finishing. 6 weeks was enough. Did they ship Infamous? Of course not. They shipped the 4th, and lowest in my que. Which is Project Fear 2 or whatever it's called. Should get it tomorrow.

Games I'm Playing:

Halo 3: ODST (Xbox 360)

About Me

My photo
Kalamazoo, Michigan, United States
I'm 38. I'm addicted to Xbox 360 gaming and Dallas Stars hockey. I make a decent living at a boring job where I run two autoclaves and do various other tasks. My escape from this boring as hell life is video games, hockey, and music. I generally listen to Metal music, but I also love 80's tunes as well as 70's tunes. I have an unusual love for the band Overkill. They do it for me for some reason. Blitz is GOD!
