overdrive Welcome to my blog. Here, you may read all of my reviews. That will take a good deal of time, as I have penned quite a large number of them. I advise you to start now. And don't forget, constantly offer me praise concerning how great I am at doing what I do!

Title: Of recent work and stuff.....
Posted: July 08, 2009 (02:29 PM)
Today: Drakan: The Ancients' Gates

Monday....or was it Sunday?: Robodemons

Robodemons was written to whet my creative juices and hopefully Drakan was a good example of said juices. As to what's next for me, I haven't a clue. With it being TT time and with me liking to have new stuff up at least every other week, I'll want to get a new review up soon, but at the moment, I have next to no clue as to what I'll be playing.

I always planned to review Drakken. Safe to say, I liked it a bit more than you. Good stuff all round, old chum.

I'd been meaning to review it for a few years, but finally got around to it. Interestingly, my current playthrough knocked at least one point off the final tally, as I really started noticing the dodgy enemy AI this time through.

I'm not sure how overly fair that is, as I've played through the first half of the game (I think) four times and, so it might be my familiarity with the monsters leading to me noticing that stuff.....but when it's the main thing on my mind when I play, it's hard not to focus on it.

The sad thing is that I had to cut out stuff I'd have liked to talk about re: atmosphere just to not bloat the review. Like the skeleton boss' Clive Barker-esque lines about how the bones are forced to bow to the desires of the flesh....so he'll carve your flesh off to free the bones AND the creepy nature of the dark crypt in the Northlands, where oftentimes you need to watch for skeleton eyes just to know you're in danger.
