What Have You Played This Week?

It was a very busy week and on top of it i spent most my gaming time trying to get through Enchanted Arms, i mean it in a good way but as with any RPG it takes time to complete them.

Football Manager 10 – PC – really enjoying my time at FC Bayern. I find them a good pallet cleanser and its good to come back to a team like that I feel. Nearly did the treble in my first season, gonna aim to do it in my second.

Enchanted Arms – PS3 – nearly 30 hours in and I don't think i'm quite at the end. In some ways the story is simple and easy to guess where its going, but it does throw in a few twists and surprises to keep it fresh. The average graphics and sound are fine, but what can be annoying is the frequency of which you battle enemies. Its obvious this has been done to make you spend more time in an area because there aren't too many areas to travel through and artificially extend the game. You can see that it was deliberate as the major enemies require you to keep levelling up. I do like the game, its kinda retro and decent and its not too hard to follow and play.

Monsters (probably) Stole My Princess– Minis – PSP – the art is fantastic and looks great on the PSP. The writing is clever, witty, and short, and the gameplay is soo simple and accessible, it all combines to make a great Minis title, even a great PSP game. The awards you get in the game are somewhat varied and pose some challenge, and the game modes do offer some quick play. The game mechanic may take a couple of goes to fully understand, but once it clicks you start gambling with how far up you'll let the monster get whilst trying to get the biggest combo.
