What Have You Played This Week?

Not a lot this week. Hopefully with a break over Christmas i'll be able to relax and play a lot of games.

Football Manager 09 – PC – Decided to start something new with Cheltenham. Not far in so far, but having an average start to the season. In the Bayern Munich game, I won the World Cup with Italy.

WET – Xbox 360 – I enjoy games like WET and Stranglehold, the hack and slash game. Even though the game didn't review well, I was still interested in giving the game a try. The game looks ok, about average, but the music is great. The music is used much like how Taraintino uses music and there is a lot of it. There is a list of them at the start of the game. The game starts twice, you play a chapter, you then get the credits, and you start again a year in the future. I'm not too far to comment on the story much, but what I have played of it, but it has flowed so far and isn't too ridiculous. The combat is typically over the top for a game like this but it does flow well. You have to unlock many of the great moves as your only given a small amount in the beginning. There are other things to unlock throughout the game which is good encouragement to pull of many moves and combos. Some of the bigger encounters can feel a tad too long.

Tinker – PC – When Games For Windows Live went live Microsoft were offering Tinker for free, and most likely still are. Its a fun little puzzler which gradually introduces you to different hazards. There is a detailed tutorial section with 20 levels as well as normal levels to play through. You play as a robot and have to get from a to b. there are hazards to either watch out for or move. You have a to complete the level before the robot runs out of power. In the beginning you've given plenty of power, but towards the end of just the tutorial levels, the amount of power is greatly reduced. Its a ok game, one to go back to now and then. You do get achievements and it is free.

Fat Princess – PS3 – I managed to get the trophy for 2253 kills which was great. The games i've been playing recently have felt really hardcore with players cheating some of the levels to get the princess. It's a shame that players feel they have to cheat to win, thankfully people are aware of the cheats and are quick to stop them succeeding.
