PC Gaming Catch-Up Impressions the Thirteenth


This game didn't click with me at all.  From the forgettable hack and slash combat to the biblical/apocalyptic setting, I just didn't like it.

I know it's supposed to turn into some mash-up of God of War and Zelda eventually, but I was so bored of the game that I couldn't stick with it.  I had to put it down and move on.

Just Cause 2

Another game that didn't resonate with me.

It's kind of cool to fly around with the parachute and the grappling hook.  Beyond that, the game hasn't aged well.  I suppose it's been out for almost 5 years already.  I think I'll just wait for Just Cause 3 to jump into the series.  I like the basics of movement mechanics, but the series needs a modern overhaul.

The Lord of the Rings: War in the North

I was under the impression this game was a turn based RPG set in the Lord of the Rings universe.  I was wrong about the game type, but right about the setting.

The Lord of the Rings: War in the North is a hack and slash.  I was extremely disappointed to find that out.  These days it takes a very special hack and slash to get me excited, and this one isn't it.  I've played far too many hack and slash games over the years and they all feel the same now.  Same gameplay, new setting.  Nothing worth spending my time on.
