After realizing how long Record of Agarest War might be, I decided to take a short hiatus to play and review another game. Over Top was a game I wanted to do for some time now, and I figured it would be an easy one to write for. Turns out it wasn't. After completing my original finished version of the review, I was dissatisfied with the end product after playing a bit more of the game. I ended up throwing out everything in the middle of the review and rewrote those sections. Though, after completing the second finished version, I still wasn't happy with it, and threw out everything in the middle again, rewrote, and modified other parts. The one you see now is the third final version.
-Record of Agarest War: The game suddenly got a bit more tougher after taking down the Jumbo Cock. In almost every new battle that came after, I usually found myself having to bring back one or two of my characters to life. Though, this mostly has to do with having to fight a bunch of healer types that keep running away from me. Cowards! Those character combos can be a real killer, too, especially during "boss" fights where one enemy can destroy you with one attack, and still has attack points left for another target, and the enemies after him/her have yet to do anything.
Seven/eight hours into Record of Agarest War, and so far, that's the most interesting thing that has happened.
And yes, that's the actual name of the "monster". I'm pretty sure the translators did that on purpose...
I gave Art of Fighting 2 a 9 star (changed). x_X
I need to be more careful when I click to see the ratings for a game.
Anyway, to put more beef into this blog entry, I'll give some impressions of the games I've recently took shots for:
w.honestgamers.com/screenshots/8878/Ninja-Clowns.html">Ninja Clowns: Stupid beat em up that's really on the easy side. It tries to be funny, too, but ends up being more creepy. Clowns pop out of the ground, a giant hen attacks by shooting eggs out of her rear, and you lose health if a prostitute puts her hands down your clown pants. There's also a spider boss that turns into a bag of popcorn once you defeat it. The developers were pretty lazy with the backgrounds, since the street backdrop gets used three times.
I CAN'T GET PAST THE SECOND STAGE!!
Not even the might of save states can help me. This game was made by devil worshippers!
Ugh, now I remember how much I hate the upgrading system and how screwed you are if you lose a life or pick the wrong weapons.
Ace Combat Zero: The Belkan War
And again, even though there's one more console game left for the Xbox 360, I'm going to take a break from the series. I don't think I have it in me to do another Ace Combat review so soon. Though, I can't seem to escape air combat games, because After Burner Climax is being released on the 360 this Wednesday!
