What Have You Played This Week?

Football Manager 09PC – Still going strong. I've been playing as San Marino, the club not the nation though they both do share the same name, location and stadium. It's interesting as I don't really try out the Italian leagues much.

CrackdownXbox 360still unsure what to make of the game. I've done two islands now and working through the third. There are a lot of things I don't like about the game, like the camera and auto aim, but there are things i'm starting to enjoy more, like exploring the open world. The need to find orbs helps explore the world, the argument could be made that the green are too many and too easy whilst the blue are too few and too hard, but at least it makes the player explore. I've killed 2 bosses by accident cause I was just out hunting orbs. Yet, in a game like Burnout Paradise, the ability to find billboards fails to interest me at all. For a launch game this still holds up well, though it does show it's age now and then.

Not much this week i know, just didn't feel much like playing another game, that and i want to get through Crackdown so i can send it back and get a new game.
