So im thinking of getting this game later on but I still am a bit skeptical. Im very picky in my games and so far most of my games are rated atleast 90 on metacritic. Except for a few cheap games I bought cuz I didn't really care. Anyway, reviews has been pretty decent so far, but still a small amount of them. Anyway I was reading comments on metacritic and someone said:
Now guys, don't go flaming this guy. I just want to know if IN YOUR OPINION, does this guy have a point at all? Because the things he said were some of the things im skeptical about. Im worried that the only fun part maybe killing people and THATS IT. Im asking for complete unbiased opinions... Are the jobs tedious/repetitive? Is fighting easy? Is their nothing really fun to do while in the city?I really wanted to love this game. I reserved it and picked it up the first day. But, I've played it and I found it to be a huge disappointment. It does have merit. Visually it's great. The story is awesome, as are the characters. But, when it comes down to it, the gameplay is just plan boring. There is very little challenge and almost all the enemies look the same. You push the A button to swing and then it goes into a finishing move where you have to swing the remote in the direction of the arrow on the screen. This is all great fun, until you realize it doesn't really matter which way you wave the remote. You just waggle it, like so many other Wii games and you'll get your finishing move pretty much every time. Then for getting to missions it makes you drive around GTA style, but there is nothing interesting to do in the city. You just drive from place to place and it is completely pointless and boring. The game is worth a rental, but I can't see any reason to buy this game. The reviewers got this one wrong, the game is fun to look at, but overall it gets boring quick. A real bummer.
I prefer people who own mostly great Wii games to answer this, because there's some people who think Mario Party 8 and Red Steel is fun. I don't find those people very credible :/
Okay fire away! I'll be back in the afternoon, maybe around 1pm or 2pm, depending when I wake up :P
