The sun is out and bright while,
We are all eating popsicles.
Because maybe the world will end and,
That's the best way to it.
SCREAM through dreams that cut your voice off;
wide awake, will nothing soothe?
With a word I'd take this pain from you,
but I fall mute.
Title: BioShock and Two Worlds first impressions. Posted: August 25, 2007 (01:23 PM)
Got both of them now. Surprisingly (more in the case of Two Worlds) I'm not disappointed.
BioShock begins quickly and with a bang and has that overall Half Life presence about it. Very cinematic, I mean, even considering the game's first person perspective. While the opening sequence pales in comparison to the thrill that The Darkness gave me, the sheer beauty of Jack's plane crash over the Atlantic and first steps into Rapture cast an enormous shadow over the former game.
Oh yeah. It plays well, too. : )
Two Worlds, on the other hand, is actually a pretty terrible game. Terrible graphics, terrible dialogue, terrible voice acting, presentation, animation - yada yada yada. . .
But somehow, it remains fun. After me and my buddy Marcus each spent an hour toying around with the game, we came up with several comparisons and were taken in by something of an unidentifiable charm.
Most closely, the game resembles a home console iteration of the first Dungeon Siege game on the PC. Then, Diablo II. Then, Asheron's Call for its use of color and the way that the sky feels more like a ceiling than a sprawling space.
There's no doubt about it that Two Worlds is addicting. Tons of weapons and armor, an interesting method of hack n' slash gameplay that also mixes in the possibilities of magic and stealth. If you were a fan of any three of those computer games, you're sure to find a lot to be happy about here.

Do you have Xbox Live? I just got Two Worlds to review, and I will likely be playing it soon. If you have Xbox Live, maybe we can complete a quest together or something.

Unfortunately not, man. Won't be getting my Live account going until I start work again, which is in the next few weeks here.
Since I picked it up launch day, I've logged in eight and a half hours. This game is insane; fun and addicting as hell.
