In the world of Rock music games, this is one of the best games as it has great oral accord. This game is made up of superbly linked music with marvelous art designs. The game has plenty of the Beatles songs you can also see the bands harmony. You will see the band members playing the guitars at the same time singing and dancing, this gives startling fun to the player.
For the last two years there has been development in the rock band games. However, The Beatles has beaten the rest of the bands in the games. The Beatles games blows up the gamers with their exciting and almost real life action between their songs. The diversity of the Beatles Songs will keep the game lively. When follow the Beatles’ career in the exceptional story mode you will unlock a multitude of videos and photographs which give you a charming real human’s look. Those images coupled with the great designs help you to relate to the four members of the band. This makes you feel at home while playing because of the harmonized and brings your room to be fun-filled as your teammates and you enjoy the game.
In the Beatles Rock game you are treated to an extensive animated video that explains the artistic and musical careers of the Beatles. This prepares you for the game ahead of you. As you go through the story mode you will notice the emphasis put on the venues; the rough Cavern Club, there is the large rowdy Shea Stadium and also the quiet organized Abbey Studios. The movies and photos give you a better understanding of the Beatles. If the Rock Band members are new to you, these photos make familiarizing with them easy as you see them more casually.
Each of the songs is accompanied by a different video that reveals the theme of the song and where it is placed in the career of the Beatles. You will find the ‘Paperback writer’ reflected by the vibrant Paul McCartney’s vigorous singing to rowdy noisy fans. The elements of this gameplay are equivalent to those of Rock Band 2.The songs played on the Beatles Rock Band game are available in the Quick play mode. The only great difference is the completing story, the mode because you cannot modify the characters and they will always play as the Beatles.
You can be up to six players in this game. In the Practice mode you can have a guitarist, a drummer a bassist and up to three vocalists. These players make a good team with a great game. Beatles Rock game is. However; this game has disadvantages. One being that the game cannot play many of the Beatles songs. You will also find the game does not have end of jam sessions and drums involved, unlike in other Rock band games.
If you loved the last year’s version of this game then you will definitely adore this one. The game is made even more challenging and fun to play with down-to-the-detail graphics of each of the players’ features to their every kick. All the passes are executed perfectly and made responsive as well as intuitive which are difficult to achieve in the real life game.
In this game, you will notice that doing manual passes are made easy through the enhanced triggers and basic fundamentals that Seabass has installed. You can feel the satisfaction of playing even by just knocking the ball around to your characters feet. Also, your AI opponents are made more intelligent and alive as they read every plan that you device when trying to make a goal. The AI’s also have the tendency to follow you in every place or corner you go as well as try to break every pass that you make. This can be a bother if you haven’t been very comfortable with your controls.
While on defense, you can also feel the pressure since there are tweaks to the defensive system of the game therefore making the task of regaining the ball more difficult. It is advised that you position your team members on the right location as well as give a right timing when the ball is near you so you can ensure yourself a goal. Some tactics you can use is to instruct a member to run close to a handler and try a tackle move, with this, you can confuse your enemy and can get an opening for a steal.
The numerous improvements to the graphics as well as the audio of this game are quite commendable. In addition, the slow-motion replays can give you a detailed view of the moves that you want and don’t want. In addition, every gameplay has an unpredictable outcome therefore giving you more options for every game and absolutely makes you want to try a whole lot of things.
Fallout 3 is yet the best version of this special video game. It is a famous role playing game (RPG) that features a unique gaming experience that is unlike any other online role playing games that are available in the market right now. The franchise for this game has been spreading worldwide because not only does it bring action and excitement to its players but also, it is well crafted which will definitely makes you engage with the game.
You will be playing the role of a Vault Dweller whose childhood memories will be shown on the beginning parts of the game. It is also through this time that you will be given a tutorial on how to manage the game. as the story states, you will be living in Vault number 101 which is designed specifically to keep people alive from a nuclear blast on the surface of the earth.
However, the story does not end there. You will be given the chance to look for your father on the outside world and for that, your adventure will begin. On your search for your father on the outside world, you will be able to check out the cook graphics and environmental design on the game. You will witness the streets of some places in the US – some familiar buildings still stand although in ruins as well as other landmarks that are now severely destroyed because of the nuclear disaster.
Although your main quest will be to search for your father, you will still need to do a necessary mission – to survive. Although the present world where you are shows a world that nobody can dwell, man still managed to survive during the chaos. Since resources will be limited due the nuclear bombs effect, you will need to look for means to keep you alive in the most unlikely places. One of which is to look for water in toilet bowls just to restore an amount of your health after a battle, or use medicines to satisfy your hunger. This will be a game of tactics as you will be doing lots of battles for survival with a limited supply of resources. Pretty much the challenge and pretty much excitement as a result. A master class in RPG gaming.
Two of the most famed of English characters are here in this game. Sherlock Holmes is fictional, Jack the Ripper, although unknown, is not. The game tackles the horrific crimes, the mutilation of female prostitutes, which concerns the two characters. If you are after an investigative and detective type of game, that is what you will get here.
This game will let you control the famous detective and also his sidekick, Dr. Watson. You are in charge of gathering clues to solve these famous crimes. At Baker Street, Holmes’ Address, and at other locations, you will be solving puzzles, mind games and overcoming lots of obstacles to find clues that will help you solve this mystery case. With the game play and how the game was presented, even the most patient mind will have a difficult time getting around the challenges thrown at you by this game.
The storyline is well presented all through and gets even more interesting as the game progresses. It also has some funny and charming scenes. But what you will be amazed with are the puzzles being thrown at you. Sherlock Holmes was famous for his impeccable logic and some of these puzzles will leave you clueless as to their solution. This game is not for kids, the logic is far too involved and there are also scenes of violence. As an adult game, the plot and storyline are impressive and the smoggy, dull, dark, depressing atmosphere of late the Victorian London side streets and alleyways is well captured.
I was actually surprised that this game only had a teen rating, because Sherlock is known for his opium drug usage, and there is a lot of racial tension, references to prostitution, venereal diseases, and some pretty grim scenes of violence. You even go undercover as a tramp, however you voiceover doesn't really change when you are undercover. Kind of seems a little out of place.
There are a lot of hidden objects to be discovered and by the end of the game you’re the table on which you place them will be creaking under the weight.
The game controls are good. You can play in third person mode or from your characters viewpoint. Everything is pretty simple and it seems to be just point and click. There are no fancy controls that will take you hours to get the hang of. In fact, I got the hang of it after just 15 min. of gameplay. Puzzles are well designed and can be difficult. The graphics are good but dark, just as they should be for the scenes portrayed.
As you would expect from a title with Sherlock Holmes in it, this is a game of puzzle solving and logical deduction, and, although the action is, in my opinion, secondary, it is, along with the accompanying scenery and atmosphere, first class.
This game is obviously about Bolt, a weird looking thing, a dog with super powers. I had one like that once but it crapped on the mat so I got rid. But unlike the other games that are inspired from Disney films or contain well known characters, Bolt and his story in this game was made very differently. Instead of playing out the adventure on earth, he will have to take his powers to the wider universe. This gives the game its own identity and wider ranging plot. But still the character is the same; he is still the super, house trained dog with remarkable and probably unique abilities. He's well up to the challenges presented and the baddies he meets along the way.
For the game play, Bolt has two game types; the main story and the shooter, which is a mini game. For the main story you will either be controlling Bolt or Penny, another character that you can assume. These two will be dealing with various obstacles of an assorted nature, fights and puzzles and so on. Just like in the movies, Bolt has lots of super powers but there are villains who can do so much damage to Bolt that he quickly loses energy and strength. So you also have to practice using normal attacks. Penny, on the other hand, uses platforming and stealth to deal with her enemies. She also uses different weapons in order to combat them. Of course, the main goal of the main story is to finish off all the villains. The mini game can also be exciting but is rather short although it makes a welcome break from the main game.
The graphics and animation of this game are very good, as you would expect from anything that Disney lends its name to. The sounds are also good and clear.
A good game; the dog makes it work where it otherwise might not.
Level one starts of with a basic , but only partial, tutorial. The story follows the adventures of Remy the rat whose ambition is to become a chef and everything is designed towards that end. The main occupation in the story is to collect charms scattered around in various places; some involve physical leaps and jumps and some require more in the way of thought. No too much thought though, as the game is really aimed at kids and families. Early on the game controls are easily manageable but later on in the game some of the more complex moves require a lot of pratice and it is very unlikely that they will be successfully carried out at a first attempt. In some of the faster play the controls do not seem to respond fast enough.
Each level requires Remy to collect a certain number of charms to move on, the charms are located around the levels however they can also be gained from completing tasks and minigames, also found throughout the levels. These sometimes involve chasing a character or perhaps being chased, Remy is after all a rat. The minigames are not too original but they seem fun enough and are fairly varied.There is no option to save your part finished game and there is no Xbox Live facility but the game does allow up to 4 players to play the minigames. The minigames can be unlocked by completing them in the story mode. The basic story mode takes only a relatively short time but variations can take considerably longer. Although the has no live multiplayer, the better minigames do add a little more play time to the game. Other than the minigames and perhaps another run through for the achievements there isn't much to make you want to return to the game.
The graphics are quite adequate for a game based on an animated film, and the main characters are better presented than the lesser ones and the backgrounds. Remy in particular stands out from all the rest. The little background music that there is fits in well with the style of the game and the character voices are spot on, doing justice to the humorous and catchy sayings of Remy.
Ratatouille has some small good points, but the gameplay is not the best and does become frustrating at times. The camera can also behave annoyingly. I would not recommend this game as it will probably only be appreciated by lovers of the characters from the film.
NBA Jam is a fast and furious game with many amusing effects on the side. This NBA Jam for Xbox 360 has added modes and effects. It is almost like watching a real NBA game; with the announcer, the players, the audience and the moves, this game comes close to reality. The best thing about this game is that it allows up to four players. So you get a two-on-two game with your friends.
It has better graphics, motions and visuals. The audio is also amusing and entertaining. The movements are realistic. And the features or appearances of the players are almost like the real person. It also has quite a few humorous bits and other player antics added to it which adds to the entertainment.
Like the real NBA game, you can do all sorts of moves on a player like alley hoops, different kinds of dunks, 3-point shots, hook shots, jump shots and a lot more. The movements of the players and how they are in the hard court are also imitated in this game. You can enter a tournament or just any special game like 2-on-2 or dunk competitions. So competing with your friends in this game will make it more enjoyable and fun. And, aside from the basketball game itself, you can still play other added games if you just want to increase your skills.
NBA Jam is a different kind of game that is specifically for those who love basketball. It is very entertaining as the movements of the players and other characters are very realistic. It is also challenging as you compete with the skills of other players. NBA Jam is the ultimately basketball game that players will enjoy playing in their Xbox 360.
What’s the recipe for a Bond classic? Have a hot dude in an equally hot sports car, pair him off with a hot babe, and throw in some bad guys for villains going against the hero’s goals, and Presto! You have a perfectly crafted but typical Bond film. And as new movies emerge, so do new games materialize, which obviously, the latest Bond film, Quantum of Solace isn’t an exception to the trend. All it takes is a similar engine to that of Call of Duty 4 wrapped around the world of James Bond with a few tweaks here and there to keep the thrilling action as novel as it could ever be. Here’s a bummer though, the additions don’t quite add up, unfortunately. It’s not that these additions are bad; they just simply don’t complement well and lacks cohesiveness with the rest of the game; thus, end up feeling of kind of unnatural and strained.
As expected, you’d be playing from a first-person perspective in the entirety of the game. The biggest shift from the COD 4 gameplay plan is when you get detached from Daniel Craig’s point of view. Developer Treyarch figured that gamers are on the lookout for the star, hence, decided to have a cover system added on to the typical first-person shooter Quantum of Solace gameplay, which works quite splendidly in Gears of War and some similar games.
You can basically stick yourself in any surface by pressing the A-button or scurry for cover when you hold the button down long enough. Although the cover system is perceived to better than in any other game it lacks the ideal functionality found in games such as Kane and Lynch, for instance. Another perceived problem with the cover system is that most of the levels are built around the mechanics. This means that the free-flowing way of killing enemies from a lot of different angles which was available in COD4 is not present here. A lot of the standard stop and pop gameplay are placed instead. It would have been completely fine if you just want to see a lot of guts and blood in flashy fashion. But when you’re dealing with a pack of dubious criminals, it can get to be quite a drag.
Fortunately though, there are lots of instances where the scenes are not really that humdrum. The game really tries to do a great job by adding some intensity and flare although those moments are rare and may be quite far in between. To keep the action a bit unpredictable – they are predictable, believe me, especially if you’re a huge fan that has watched every Bond movie – and lend some freshness, the levels remain varied all throughout.
The presentation is generally done quite well. The graphics aren’t bad but its greatest failure is the repetitiveness of the enemy design – all the enemies look and act exactly the same. There’s a noticeable lack in explosion that seems unrealistic and cartoony. The gameplay is quite decent but may be a little bit forgettable and can definitely do with some improvements.
Overall, this might be a fun game to start with but it also has the potential of being forgotten after a week.
Two Worlds has always been compared with the already established role playing game Oblivion, which was released last year. Though the comparison made may be a little unfair, this game is still soaring with good character development and a free-flowing action any RPG enthusiast is sure to enjoy.
Two Worlds has to address the issue of its Xbox 360 design, which is somewhat similar to the PC design. This might sound a bit odd for most but also a well-accepted revelation in many ways as PC RPGs offer more depth compared to their console counterparts; especially on factors like the storyline, creation of characters and the game world itself.
What role do you play in this game then? A mercenary who is confused whether to save the world from inhabiting orcs or save your missing sister, you find yourself in the land of Antaloor where war between man and orcs is currently raging; this is practically where the whole game starts. Three hundred years have passed and the tomb where Aziraal rests has been found resulting in an aggravated misunderstanding between men and the orcs. While waging war, you are given quests like helping people or killing monsters can provide you both with fun and profit throughout the game.
After customizing your male character (sorry about that, ladies), you are ready to start slaughtering orcs, enabling you to have skill rewards for you to advance to the next level. Fighter character requires strength and vitality boosts, as well as extensive increase in powerful skills to inflict damage. A mage needs an increase in willpower and magical skills – to do necromancy and manipulate the four elements; while a jack-of-all-trades can also get hold of all these attributes.
There is no limit to the usage of weapons and spells and any character you choose can use alchemy. Crystals that boost up health and buff your stat can also be obtained in the game and can be used regardless of which character you pick. Combats are pretty straightforward. They may look easy but once your level increases, you’ll find the difficulty level changing. To survive in hard struggles, you have to do a lot of running and dodging from your enemies’ assaults. A multiplayer option makes Two Worlds stand out from any other RPG. You have to agree it’s something worth trying, right? However, you must also be aware that although this game is perfect for RPG fanatics, the game is not without problems.
To tick things off, the interface is adjusted to mostly close up shots on the screen. The gameworld is a bit vast and there are numbers of places to go to – which can be confusing at times and reading the mini map on the main adventure screen can be eye straining, and so are the number of icons that become unrecognizable if you attempt to adjust it to full size. The text used in the game is so small that you have to really put your face closer to the screen to read it. On top of all these flaws, the Xbox version is so patterned with a PC version that it misses on the essential item of using a gamepad and a google-box. In general though, the visuals and audio are not that good, but comprehensible enough to pass up for tolerance.
Two Worlds is a great game, despite the technical flaws on its Xbox version. RPG enthusiasts are at least assured of entertainment and fun when playing the game.
There are only a few games, and fewer developers that have dared create s rugby game simulation/game. Sadly, Rugby League Live has more bruises than any of its players combined for this season with its series of misses. Yes there are areas in which the game has done well, but it falls down in too many other aspects. The lack of certain modes and options which should be staples for this genre makes it bare. Overall, it is a disappointment.
One of the strengths of the game is in its passing. It feels solid, like how a rugby match should fell. Passing left or right is achieved thorough the usage of the shoulder buttons, while throwing cut – out passes is easily done by throwing directly to wider attacking players who were automatically signed 1 of 3 face buttons. Rugby League Live is most exciting when you are attacked as you pass the ball around looking for loopholes from the opposition. Good strategy is needed as well as perfect timing for you to be successful.
If offence is your tactic, being defensive does nothing good for you and your team. Tackles are highly imprecise. You press a button to turn tackle on but moving your player to the ball carrier is quite a mess as you might find yourself flailing around helplessly rather than running directly at players. The switch controls do little to help with this as they are unreliable and unresponsive. When you press switch to be the player closest to the ball carrier/ball, you are instead transferred to someone farther away, or worse, no switching happens at all.
The game modes are rather limited, as for offline play you can only play either quick matches or a full season, and that is it. No option for playing through multiple seasons is available and there is no franchise mode. Not even a practice mode is available for newbies. Sad sad sad. You can customize though, but you are limited to a few presets when creating a player, and their stats don’t improve throughout the game. Editing a real life team is an impossible task. Multiplayer can support up to 4 players both off – and on – line.
They never should have developed this game in the first place as it offers more frustrations than fun.
