What Have You Played This Week?

It may not look like i've played alot this week, but i have put alot of time into Dynasty Warriors Gundam 2, maybe 15+ hours this week. not made it in my attempt to finish the game, it could take around 60+ hours to complete the game, but i have finished 1 story mode and some of the other story mode so i may send it back to the rentals on Monday.

Football Manager 10 – PC – still with Havant & Waterlooville and still in league 1. not played too much, just coming up to Christmas now, but i'm doing well in the league. The only problem I have is i'm unable to improve my stadium and because of this my finances are very tight.

Dynasty Warriors Gundam 2 – Xbox 360 – I put a lot of time into this game in an attempt to try and finish it. What I soon discovered is that I wasn't having any fun playing it on medium so I put it on easy and began to have a better time playing the game. The main reason why medium was no fun was because the game has no checkpoint system, so if you die you have to start all the way from the beginning. What I was finding was I would get all the way to the end and die. This is more true with the giant Gundams they added to the game. They take a lot to kill them and they are very powerful, but there are some levels that have several of them throughout. The only other issues i've had with the game are some achievements not unlocking, 1 of which still has yet to unlock, and I think the manual camera moves a touch too slow. This game is not a quick game to play and the achievements are not easy to get, so I wouldn't recommend it to anyone. But if you like Gundams or hack-and-slash style games this is a very competent game. There are 2 story modes to play through as well as having to juggle friendships with other characters. On the surface it is a simple game, but if you want a deeper experience from a hack-and-slash, this has it.

Transformers: War For Cybertron – PS3 – just been playing some multiplayer, trying to get some of those achievements. Still find it fun, the multiplayer issues are still annoying...but my love for Transformers and this game wins out still.

Did you manage to play more games than I have over the week, or do you have any comments on my experiences or questions about the games i've played? If you do, feel free to add them in the comments section.
