Or, rather, second Wii game bashing written straight into the submission box. Today's victim : Wii Fit. I still need to write that Lego Star Wars review, but I'm kinda stuck until I get my 360 back. =/
I've never been able to review this game, even when I actually wrote reviews on a regular basis. Yes, I did write reviews on a regular basis. But Final Fantasy IX eluded me. I couldn't find words for it.
I have to admit, I'm still having trouble. And I need to review this thing in the next few days for the little contest I'm involved in.
I wrote a few notes, and now I need to try and expand it into a review. I'm using this blog as a template, since it's much like the review submission box. I can't write this stuff in Microsoft Word or Notepad, because for some reason my brain shuts down.
I have the first line of my review.
"Final Fantasy IX was never going to please everyone."
A licenced game. You know, I'd been meaning to buy Lego Star Wars for quite some time. Today, I found it in the bargain bin for $30 new (from $89.95 AUD). So, 30% of the original price. Not bad, huh? I was almost going to pay $45 for a second hand copy. Glad I didn't. This is Lego Star Wars: The Complete Saga, on the 360.
I'm enjoying this game so far. Reminds me of when I was a kid, how I'd play with Lego. I'm sure I will be able to play enough of this game over the month to be able to review it in time. Especially if I talk about the game to people, then save what I say.
Also, I think I should get double bonus points for a game that uses TWO licences. Wait, make that 4 times! Because it's two games, Lego Star Wars and Lego Star Wars II. >_>
Damn, I'm good.
I actually wrote a review. It's more of a whinge, though, written directly into the submission box, fuelled entirely by my own disappointment at the game. I need to trade it in before it loses any more value. God, that game leaves a bitter taste. I only paid half price for it, and I still felt ripped off. I want my money back.
I did get one thing out of it, though. A review. It's... quite an important moment for me.
This is just rambling stuff I've written about my experience playing the original Zelda. I had enough Wii Points to download this one after that XMAS REVIEWS topic.

The familiar Zelda overworld theme plays. I am walking around on sand, destroying countless red circular enemies that shoot balls at me. I continually get hit, and I'm finding the whole experience rather frustrating.
My sister walks in, looks at the television, and asks "What console are you playing?" I explain that it's the Wii, and I've used it to download the original Zelda.
"When was this game made?" she asks.
"1987 I think"
So all these interesting timesink games will have to wait. Particularly Fallout 3. The advantage of this is that I get to see what people think of it a month and a half from now. I wonder if the appeal of it has worn off, like it seemed to for GTA IV. Kinda wish I'd waited longer for that, and not pre-ordered it so I could get the special edition.
