That's right, no Football Manager this week, and not much else truth be told.
Fat Princess – PS3 – got a few more trophies, and also managed to get into a few great games. Starting to notice that many games are not full now which is a shame as I prefer those.
Race Pro – Xbox 360 – I remember a while back seeing something about this game which got me interested. However, after playing many hours of it i'm very disappointed. It has an avergae amount of tracks, but the backgrounds are fairly bland and motionless, whilst stuff like the curbs appear as flat as the grass (which can be very annoying as you may find on one or two tracks that a “flat” curb launches your car in the air), and even the clouds appear to be repeated at every track. There is a good car selection and they do feel different from each other, in terms of handling, speed, and traction, and a average set of modes to use them in. the championship is 10 races, the career though is many ranks split into different cars, each with 3 races to compete in. but after a while it just feels bland and very repetitive. The novice mode is insultingly easy, whilst semi pro feels like easy. Pro's difficulty is such a giant leap that it becomes soo frustrating. There are also graphical issues with shadows, like under the rear wing, and puffs of smoke hanging in mid air. There was also a track where the start lights didn't appear for a sec. I'm playing through the career mode, but it will be sent back soon. It's not even good for achievements.
Resistance Fall Of Man – PS3 – this is a game I never finished. I watch my old house mates complete it, but I personally don't have a finished game. So i'm working my way through it, ready for Resistance 2. I do enjoy it, I like the story, the games difficulty increases slowly, and there's always enough ammo. Graphically it doesn't hold up great, but as a whole, it's a fine shooter.
Crash Bandicoot – PS1 Classic – PSP – Only played a little. I stopped ages ago as I was stuck, but this time I did it first time. I managed to get a few more levels in. this game though is a lot harder than I remember it being.
Super Star Dust Portable – PSP – I used to be addicted to this game. The PSP version is done soo well, from the music to the new game modes. It didn't take long for its hooks to dig into me and I wasted a whole battery life just playing it. Great fun and highly recommended.
