Here I go again, the next 2 games that I should have stayed the hell away from.
#8: Goldeneye: Rouge Agent (DS)
Back when the DS first came out there wasn't a whole lot of games to get. This is what happens when you have little to choose from. I got this game thinking: "It's a FPS with touch screen controls". Yes this game is that but where this game falls apart is in the hit detection. Sometimes I swear I shoot some guy and the bullet just goes through him or the whole thing is just too clunky. The graphics are also terrible, the game probably looks worse than Goldeneye on the N64 and that sucks since Mario 64 DS looked slightly better than the N64 version. This problem is a real bitch when you have to snipe dudes that just blend in with the rest of the enviroment since they all look blocky and pixelated. The controls are ok I guess, the idea can and has worked (Metroid Prime: Hunters) of having a FPS control with the touch screen. Something really weird about this game is that it has loading. What the heck? Isn't it supposed to be a cart? It doesn't take a lot but really, why in the world would this game need that? The game has multiplayer in case you want to subject someone else to this terrible game.
#7 Headhunter: Redemption (XBOX)
More like headhunter: deception. A sequel to the Headhunter game on the Dreamcast and PS2, I was so excited before this game came out. The game puts you in the role of either headhunter Jack Wade or his new super dumb as hell parter: Leeza X. Oh and did I mention her name is dumb? And that she is in fact, dumb? Let's start with her. She is probably the main problem with the game. All her dialog consists of complaining and just trying to be all hip. BUT SHE'S NOT. Leeza X just barely tries to be this badass girl from Da Hood. The other thing is that the missions are just terrible, they are so boring. Just kill a bunch of dudes and to some random ass puzzles. One good thing I can think of this game is this one boss that has a movie studio. He's played really over the top silly but is also very sadistic. There is also some character development, Jack got married to the girl he had the hots for in the first game and has a kid. After a tragic accident the kid dies and the lady blames it all on Jack. So they get divorced and the game starts. The story in general picks up right after the whole bloody mary incident and from there on, it's pretty good. But the pace of the game is really slow. The game as I said before lets you play as both characters depending on what part of the story you're at. You don't get to choose. Thats a real bummer since Jack has way better weapons and accuracy. But that would make it a better game more like the first one, and that's been a big no no for Sega in a while.
Next time will be a double wammy of portable games that just suck the big one.
