What Have You Played This Week?

I didn't get much gaming in. unfortunately, with power randomly cutting out i've not played a lot. Also, again with the ISP change over I didn't get much online gaming done.

Football Manager 10 – PC – thought I would have a go with another team. I'm now Annan and making my way through the first seasn.

Wipeout HD Fury – PS3 – played some offline races. Got stuck trying to get enough points to unlock another cell.

Unreal III – PS3 – near the end of chapter 4 now. Whilst the controls are great, the AI is stating to get annoying. This is defiantly a game that is best played in co-op and not one where you should rely on the AI to do the sensible thing. I'm stuck on avalanche but I have a few ideas on how to win it.

Okami – Wii – in the mayhem of the last week or so I forgot that I had rented this game. I've played the game in two big chunks and i'm starting to fall for the game. The graphics are amazing, the characters are great; there's a good sense of humour in the game, and it plays well. There are some issues with the WiiMote in the beginning, but it's easy to learn to compensate for them and they're not an issue now. I have no idea how far i'm into the game but I don't care, the game is flowing naturally and i'm hooked.

Halo ODST – 360 – I only turned on the 360 to change my wireless settings, but this was in the disc drive so I had a go. The graphics are average, apart from the face models which look terrible. The visor is a great addition and the subtle hints in the landscape on what to do is very well done. I'm not far into the story but i'm interested in seeing where it goes and what happened to the other ODST's. The combat takes a little to get used to, got to remember that your not the chief.
