For Gamemoir, Charlie Roberts takes a look at three games that deserved more attention.
Hey now, that game was pretty badass. Hope there's a sequel.
The only game I have played where the game got better if you turned off the volume.
'What the dick??'
All of those games came out at time when FPS burnout started, and Alpha Protocol was widely reported to have horrible, unfinished, mechanics.
Yup, it was around that time. People were just a bit sick of hiding behind a conveniently waist high wall and shooting things. And the mechanics are absolutely flawed, that game dug its own grave by not employing some elbow grease and just cleaning it up. Past that, though, in terms of narrative, it's very intricate and enjoyable. Guess that's a preference thing, though!
Singularity was a good game, I think I was the only one that played it, I quite liked it http://www.youtube.com/watc...
I've made a note numerous times to play that but haven't gotten round to it. I'm doing a huge generation clear up before next gen so I'll probably pick it up, because it does look fun.
Good game: sort of a Bioshock-lite experience. It had a crazy setting but was part of the game's character more than your standard shooter. At the time anyways was a good explanation on "what is was". I played it in consoles first but bought cheap on PC and haven't finished it again yet :( Just one of those games I liked a lot and want to play more of but other games/RL distracts me.
Wayy underrated. A solid shoot that happens to not be CoD much like Metro...
Idk about Bulletstorm.. but for me Bayonetta - That way EVERYONE would actually get Bayonetta 2. Valkyria Chronicles - This truly was a gem. Came out along some blockbuster games that took all the spotlight. Still one of the best JRPGs/SJRPGs of this gen.
One I think should had done better is Enslaved. Not a great game but better than many that sold much better and rather solid experience. Sort of like Heavenly Sword (although HS>Enslaved IMO). A ton of gems this gen that didn't get attention they deserved.
No NO NO Alpha Protocol should of not existed. It's a horrible game compared to the others you've mentioned. I've reviewed this game. It's terrible.
I wouldn't call it terrible but it's not "good" by any means. Were it not for the game being mostly broken....
I know I'm gonna get killed for this but.... DMC deserved more sales. It's a solid game. Yes it's dumbed down a bit. Yeah early Dante is awful. Yeah to probably everything else but it's still not a bad game and I'd even go so far to call it a good game.. Should have called the game Demons and Angel and stripped away the Devil May Cry flavoring and you end up with a pretty good game... *creeps away*
