I actually had a lot of fun with Far Cry Vengeance despite the gameplay and controls being the only saving factors of the game. I was expecting this game to be much better in comparison, but it's not. The controls in the game just don't feel right to me. Even though I use the Wii-mote to aim, I stll have problems hitting enemies. The swordplay is pretty clunky too.
It is kind of cool how you can turn the Wii-mote to turn the on-screen hand but overall this game just doesn't amuse me and has caused me to go back to...
Resident Evil 4: Wii Edition
Did I shock you there? I am finally starting to see that I have completely overplayed this game. I have overplayed RE2 in the past to the point where it's just not really as much fun anymore and I think I am starting to the do the same with this one. I'm actually relying on the Hand Cannon now to get me through boss fights quicker - completely taking the fun out of the game.
Besides getting bored with Red Steel, the other reason why I returned to this was to confirm some extra info that readers have emailed me with for my RE4: Wii Edition guide. I confirmed everything that I set out to, so at least I got that taken care of. The updated version went up today and you can view it right here.
I haven't really played this game enough to judge it, but from I have played so far it is very enjoyable from a gameplay perspective. The story seems rather shallow to the point of almost being nonexistent, but the overall sandbox gameplay is great. One really nice thing about this game is that the collectibles don't blend into the environment like they do in other games (Assassins' Creed), so it might actually be enjoyable to try to find them all.
In a way though, I kind of want to move on to Condemned. I have heard a lot of good things about it and really want to play it - it's sitting right next to me still factory sealed.
