Blog number 3 and week 3 of going after DizzyChaos's gamerscore. This week has mainly been playing Cabela's Big Game Hunter which I got the full 1000 points from. The game was really quite easy to get the points from but to be honest although I did have some fun with it the game did have some bad problems. For example you would be walking around in this open space and all of a sudden you would run into an invisible wall. Now in something like Earth Defense Force this isn't too bad because of the way the game is but in Big Game Hunter it's horrible. Imagine if in World of Warcraft you were walking around randomly and then all of a sudden there is an invisible wall that stops you progressing using that path. The next thing is that I'll be looking for a certain animal to hunt and even though the objective tells me where the animal is the animal just won't appear. I spent half an hour at one point wandering through an area trying to find a specific animal when the game seems obviously glitched unless I reload. Thirdly there is the dodging problem when you are against rival animals which makes the fights unfair. When you're fighting a rival animal usually a prompt appears telling you to press X or B to dodge, unfortunately though sometimes it fails to prompt you and all of a sudden from out of no where you will be hit. I had to keep restarting from checkpoint until the dodging system worked properly. It was very annoying. This games only real redeeming factors for me are the graphics, I find them to be really nice looking and colourful which makes for a nice change when you're used to seeing gray and brown in a lot of games of this generation. So I'm going to give this a 3/10. I did have fun with it, but because of it's problems I can't let the score go any higher.
Gears of War 2 is another game I've been playing a bit of this week since the new ranking system has been released. I'm level 8 and can't wait for the new maps to become available next Tuesday.
Finally is the DizzyChaos update. This week he has 50,040 gamerscore and I have 43,939 gamerscore which means that this week he got 835 gamerscore and I got 1,244 gamerscore. So I got about 1/3 more than him which isn't bad. Hopefully I'll be able to continue to beat his weekly gamerscore and get in front of him.
Thanks for reading, bye :)
