I just wanted to say that I got a rental trial at game and rented two titles I’ve kind of dismissed in the past and recent past. Those being Uncharted: Drake’s Fortune and inFamous. I’d never played Uncharted before but I have played the inFamous demo, which turned me off the game at the time, but since then I’ve realised I actually do want to play more of the full game.
So far I’ve only got Uncharted sent to me but I started playing it tonight and I really enjoyed what I played so far. The controls feel tight and very fun, the story is interesting and the graphics are extremely impressive. The main reason I dismissed it before was because I really don’t tend to finish or enjoy single player games. That may not change with Uncharted, but at least what I do play will be highly entertaining, and at the end of the day, that’s really the most important thing.
I’ll have more on that and inFamous when I play more of each.
Fat Princess came out today, and of course I downloaded it and played it quite a lot. It takes a while to get used to but once you get the hang of it and understand all the tactical options, and how the more strategic elements of the game work, it’s really fun. So far I’ve had the most fun and success as a priest but I’m planning to get into the other classes more soon.
The title may still be a little overpriced but I don’t feel ripped off. It would have been nice to have a platinum trophly like WipEout HD does but it’s not a deal-breaker by any means. I feel like this game is worth the £11.99 price tag more than wipeout to me personally because I can see myself getting much more from the game. It’s not that wipeout isn’t good, I just have much more incentive to return to Fat Princess.
I’ll have a full review soon, but if you’re on the fence about the game, I would say don’t wait and just get it now. It’s very difficult to regret it.
