Go Gaming Giant takes a look at games that should have been great in their new series. The first issue looks at Advent Rising.
It truly was a great game
Another shocker of the industry, it's lucky that some little gems are saved.
I really like this game. If I would have known MS was not going to add it to the xbox originals backwards compatibility, I wouldn't have gotten rid of my original xbox. Sure it had some game crashing flaws, but had this game been released on the PS3 or 360 patches could have fixed it right up. Hell, if Oblivion or Fallout would have released last gen, they would have been tore up in the reviews due to game crashing bugs.
Ideally they would have just cleaned them up before release instead of half-assing it and then patching later. As far as I can remember, Morrowind worked like a charm on the original Xbox...if you don't count the soul crushing load times.
Morrowind had the same bugs found in both of Bethesda's current gen releases--specifically the random crashes and freezes when you went from the menus to the game and general in-game bugs that would cause massive frame rate issues and/or out right crashes. When it worked, it worked wonderfully. But sometimes you'd look at it funny and it would crash. The GOTY edition fixed a lot of the issues, but the first releases were f'ed up. They've gotten better with the full games this gen-but crashes and freezes have become a trademark with their games. DLC, on the other hand....I rarely buy any of the major DLC of any Bethesda game within the first month or so of its release. The only exception was Mothership Zeta. I haven't even finished it yet because it keeps messing up in the "Robot Assembly" stage. Apparently the game doesn't like it when I try to kill the aliens or drones after you blow up the assembly line.
I really like how they had the million dolarr prize in that contest and then they had tyo change teh contest and give people some crappy prize. too funny. Great idea for a game, bad art style, and definitely the lead in to too human.
Their main advertising draw was that you could get 1 mill but never followed through that's all i remember about this game
i LOVED this game. i was muc younger when I bought it so dont remeber to many of the bugs but i was really bummed that they didnt add a second one... damn cliffhanger ending...
hopefully they will do a second one, I think a sequel would do really well
never played it, however i hear a lot of good things about it.
It could have been one of the best.
I've never actually played it, but if it's got the "don't miss this it's a gem buzz", then I guess I'll have to.
This game had kickass music.
Loved this game! I got a kick out of how the brother from Boy Meets World was the voice of Gideon.
IS the MAN!!! Wish some studio would pick the Ender's Game series and make a great game!!! I think it has all of the things that could make a great gaming franchise!!! As for Advent...it was the STORY that hooked me in the first place...the gameplay was...meh!!!
It was suppose to be a trilogy, but I don't know what happen. I had a blast with star wars unleash, just because it had slight similary to it.
I actually really enjoy Advent Rising (does have frame rate issues when too many things going at the same time). The story is really good (Orson Scott famous with the Ender Games book, really good Sci-fi book) and the action is top notch. They suppose to have trilogy but, well majesco already closed down. Man that also mean there is not gonna be Phantom Dust 2, cause Phantom Dust is one of the best, if not the best, game i ever played.
