What Have You Played This Week?

I played a fair bit this week, unfortunately not finishing any of them. It was a fairly busy week but I still hope to finish IL-2 Sturmovik: Birds of Prey so I can send that back to Swapgame and get something new in return.

Football Manager 10 – PC – I have had issues with my Annan save since the 10.3 update game out...and it finally crashed. I've started a new game with San Marino, the club not the country.

Rocket Knight – Demo - PS3 – I've never played Rocket Knight game before so I was interested in giving this a go. Unfortunately, I don't have the money to buy the game out right, but I gave the demo a go. The demo is a good size, letting you play a few stages which, themselves, provide a variety of different gameplay mechanics. The graphics look good and stylised, the controls are simple and responsive. The demo is well worth a try and it does feel like a 16Bit style platformer which is very refreshing.

IL-2 Sturmovik: Birds of Prey – PS3 – i've nearly finished the campaign mode, but still have plenty of single missions to work through. As you progress in the game, it becomes clear how each of the planes handle differently and it can keep you on your toes. The campaign mode is somewhat varied and it doesn't get dull as each part of the campaign mode is short. Still found no one online, but not totally disappointed. I'll finish the campaign mode, but not sure if i'm going to work my way through all the missions.

Halo Reach – Beta – Xbox 360 – i've played alittle more. Still would prefer to play the single player, but this will do until then.

Bookworm Adventures – PC – still playing this now and then. Its a good little time waster.
