Van Buren is the true Fallout 3.
Bethesda's game is superior.
I think Fallout 3 is superior to the original Fallout games. I played them and I think Bethesda's rendition is better.
I hated the new hot pursuit. All it is is racing, you can't drive to anywhere and explore. What's the point of having an open world when it's just roads. Drove around for an hour then got bored.
Still, you could control the cars in it. That's more than you can say about NFS Shift 1&2 with their broken handling.
First of all, only one of these is a remake(unless I'm missing something). Second, which one would you even call a reboot? I guess Hot Pursuit has been gone long enough that it would count, but pretty much everything else has had regular installments every few years, if not more frequently.
fallout 3 and prince of persia are the only one the other 4 were good games nothing that blew us away need for speed HP really? its a great game but what blew you away? and catlevania is GOW,sotc and some dmc
I really liked Castlevania. Sure, it had alot of sotc and GOW influences, but the overall quality of storytelling and soundtrack put it up there with those two games imo.
Castlevania was a very freaking awesome game I loved every secod of it, I haven't had fun with a game since Uncharted 2. Really deserved better praise.
HOTPURSUIT, after reading article criterion remade hotpursuit 3 ps1.... now i understand why it was CRAPPY not saying the original HP 3 was crappy but how criterion made it close to burnout drifting corners over an over. no 2-player mode also. it would be great!!! if BLACKBOX made HP 3 (ps2) into ps3 game.
Castlevania LoS was complete trash. Broken camera, off screen unblockable attacks, crappy upgrades, and the best part of the whole game is the last 2 minutes, which is a CG cut scene. The game shamelessly stole ideas from better games like SoTC and God of War. Boots that give speed for attacks, wings that allow you to jump large gaps....The game even stole ideas from Dante's Inferno (light and dark magic), which stole everything from God of War. I'd rather have another 2d side scroller than another crappy 3D Castleknockoff.
How is the light macig from LoS similar to the system of DI? How is the quality of those games even compared anyway? LoS blew every other hack and slash clone out of the water, it's only behind GoW Bayonetta and DMC, Di was a short, ugly and unispired joke BTW, the wings that give you double jump were used in Castlevani Symphony of the night, 1997, quite earlier than GoW, who do you think inspired who anyway?
Sadly, there are a lot of people that are ignorant of the fact that God of War is not the first game of it's kind.
@ Ahasversu Ok...so you've explained the wings....how about the boots and quick time events? The visual style of Belmont's combat? And I suppose climbing on huge monsters was in some other Castlevania as well? And please explain your theory on Gow being inspired by a 2d action platformer. I'm sure this will be good. I will say this though. LoS is far better than DI but it's still a crap game and that has nothing to do with the borrowing of gameplay from better games. You can't tell me the broken camera didn't piss you off a little or the nonstop babbling from the normally awesome Patrick Stewert.
About GOW being inspired by CV, let me see: - Retractable chain? Check - Big mythological bosses? Check - Walk-kill-jump-puzzle- mechanic: Check - Confirmed by David Jaffe? CHECK! (Interview found at japanease officia site, along with an IGarashi interview) what about that? :P
