If you have bought this can someone please tell me how this is?? ARE THE controls better then blazing angles?

Zaskark56567d ago

USMChardcharger6567d ago

This is a great game. After you get use to the controls it's a breeze. The G-Forece effects are nice too!!

Lucidmantra6567d ago (Edited 6567d ago )

It could have been so much more but for a first title I will accept it. The base control scheme is arcadey and i will try to switch it up the idea that you have to bank left and keep the controller pointing left to turn is to hookey to put to words. A real jet you would bank and then back on the stick to continue banking. The jets control sluggishly, an F16 should not delay in turning as it is one of the most manueverable planes in the world today. The graphics are meerly passable and not outstanding. Tarmac textures are last-gen big pixeled and were not improved as i guess they figured most of the action would be in the air. The jets are textured badly and the models are not very hig polycount models as with the F14 you can see the bends in the fuselage that make it look more octagonal and not round per say. The game play is i guess fun if you like waiting for the computer to target and press a button. Generally I wanted more but it is better than Blazing Angels was. I hope a game comes along on the 360 like Ace Combat. A fun, challenging and well executed semi-simulation of jet combat.

Lucids Score - 6 out of 10.

I 2nd that thanks for the heads up I was going to give it a shot now i'll rent it, beat it and move on. Games have to be the best for to slap $60 on it. GRAW, Oblivion, Chrome Hounds, will be the only games ill own through July. you know the best in each genre.

Lucidmantra6567d ago

Prey is looking good too... Wait for the demo to post in the next week and give it a good look.

Well, I bought it yesterday as I've been waiting for a decent flight sim for xbox/xbox360 for a while now as there was nothing near a flight sim for the original xbox (Airforce Delta Storm was terrible). I used to like the ace combat series for ps2, but the cheesy dialogue and LAME story mode kinda killed the series for me along with the rediculous amount of missiles each plane could carry. The lame dialogue was what killed Blazing Angels for me as well. The controls can be set up any way you want including true sim style stick and all. I've played it on my 720p 37 inch lcd tv and a 19 inch CRT computer monitor and it looks great on both. I don't see what everyone is complaining about with the graphics, I think it looks great. Sim's typically don't have sensational graphics. I've read some forums where people were saying how the screenshots that were released looked no better that Ace Combat 5. After seeing it in motion, that claim is quickly put to rest.

AVerMedia’s Game Capture HD Review | FanBolt

FanBolt writes: "Over the many years that I have spent gaming I have always had moments that needed to be captured. While explanations and sharing those moments were good, there were times where it just didn’t do certain situation justice. However, if you had video to go along with your explanation it would have made things that much easier to understand. Having AVerMedia’s Game Capture HD device allows me to now share those moments and highlight my playing experience more thoroughly. Whether there are exciting battles, funny situations like a horrible glitch or just to show your high score run or fastest lap time, I am able to better explain the experience with this tool. The Game Capture HD opens up those doors for me to share any situation in game and to quickly upload it to YouTube with ease."

Two Worlds wasn't that bad! If anything Too Human was the worst or ODST or Halo in general :P.

qface645113d ago

whaaaaaa odst is only 4 hours long!!
i was thinking of getting it on ebay dang well might as well go with my second choice (dragon quest 9)

AtatakaiSamurai5113d ago

Why why why do we love to fall for these bull crap type "top ten games my ass likes or not likes or whatever just click on my site" 'articles'

It's like flies to crap. I saw this and then 10mins later it was over 300degrees lol why do we do this to ourselves? lol

Anon19745113d ago

There's no other way to explain these opinions. Halo ODST. Short, maybe, but "worst of"? Come on! Too Human and Two Worlds worst crimes were being merely average. His worst of PS3 list is just as head shaking.

Don't give this site your hits. There's no thought put in here at all.

HolyOrangeCows5113d ago

ODST was short and it's only multiplayer addition lacked matchmaking but I'm still not sure that it deserves to be titled the 5th worst 360 game.

BigPenguin5113d ago

Two worlds is the Lair of the 360. Both pretty cool games that got trashed for really nothing.

Lair's motion controls were fine, people mistook strait up and down with pivoting along their elbows. I know I did at first, but the moment I realized it(2 hours in, I can see why others had trouble, needed a better control tutorial) I never made that mistake again.

I have to think a lot of reviewers got a beta copy or something of two worlds, because when I got it, it was not nearly as buggy as they accused it of being. I also did not follow any pre-release hype, so I don't think I got the let down feeling that many people got.

bioshock12215113d ago (Edited 5113d ago )

Seems like Nowgamer is just looking for easy hits. ODST being one of the worst you gotta be kidding me. There are far worst games out there ODST is a great game. But this is what I have to expect from Nowgamer this website shouldn't be taken seriously. They also listed Mag as one of the worst PS3 games yeah definitely should not be taken seriously.

jakethemuss5113d ago

Two Worlds was alright and Too Human wasn't overly bad just not what I expected.

I think the list could have been made better, rather than just name drop to get hits. (Same could be said about the similar ps3 list)

BeaArthur5113d ago

Yeah, although I did find myself a little addicted to Two Worlds, that game was a technical mess. I bet there is a crappier title than ODST out there, I doubt they really did their research and just grabbed the first 5 out of the ones they have played or are familiar with.

Inside_out5113d ago (Edited 5113d ago )

I really enjoyed Halo ODST. Apparently, so did nearly 6 million other gamers...ARTICLE FAIL...I thought the story was great with all the flashbacks and taped additions. The sub machine gun and pistol made for a AWESOME combination, I hope Reach has them. Driving around the burnt out city with a mongoose was great fun, once I found it. The soundtrack was as haunting and beautiful as any in gaming...ADD Firefight, which was an entire new Multi-player horde mode...ALL the Multi-player maps +4 with all the features that make Halo legendary and you had one of the best packages around. ODST sold more than UC 1 and 2 COMBINED...Nowgamer, what do you expect.

Too Human ran into Unreal problems, A likely excuse to continue to milk M$. They had to port all there game data to another engine. Pretty dumb on their part. I think those lawsuits are still pending. That was suppose to be a trilogy...lol...I don't think M$ wants anything to do with them...

MisterNiwa5113d ago

Many people buy it, equals good game?
So if one million people buy Leisure Suit Larry, is it good?

Shadow Of Colossus did not sell very well, so did Ico, still games that are million times better than a game that sold a lot more than these two tiles.

Dude, start playing games and not sales.

Robearboy5113d ago

Well if ODST is in the bottom 5 then the 360 worse exclusives aint bad at all, odst was fun but short and 80% plus on the metacritic gives a bit of a clue that it wasnt that bad
