The current status of me reviewing games and Far Cry 2

You guys may be wondering, he said he was quitting reviews so why did he write reviews for Saints Row 2 and Pure (Yep, just posted my Pure review)? Well, I decided to only write reviews for certain games. So that'll probably be my new way of doing stuff on this site.

I picked up Far Cry 2 Wednesday and at first I was very disappointed and it's still not living up to my original expectations but it's getting better, the story isn't very good but it's still OK. At first, the random battles that just pop up while your driving a trail was annoying and now they're just really fun and exciting, I don't know how my thoughts changed over-night but they did. The AI is as good as they promised. I find it dumb that you have to pry the bullet out of your arm. It looks gruesome and all but it's also kinda annoying when your in a big battle and you just want to inject yourself with that needle to heal yourself. But, when you dig your finger into the bullet hole, to pick it out, make sure your not eating before because it looks sickening. I played the multiplayer today and I was surprisingly disappointed. The online user-base wasn't all there. I don't know if it was because it was just released yesterday or what but not many people are playing. I haven't tested out the map creator yet so it'll be about an hour until I try that out.

Sadly, this is all I've got for now. I will possibly write a review for Dead Space, I've started it but I don't know if I'll finish it. I will say that it is a great game. I should be getting Blitz the League 2 in the mail this Saturday or Monday. And hopefully... just hopefully get LittleBigPlanet next Tuesday. Well I'll talk to you all probably next Tuesday, see ya!

I keep heating that Far Cry "gets better".  I'm really holding off on this one till I hear what Brad has to say.

Yeah it really is different from most shooters but it has to be the most immersive and intense game I have played yet

Well, LBP should be coming tomorrow, and a review for Dead Space would be awesome :D
Haven't played FC2 yet though, hear it's incredible. Going to check it out.

ReTarDedFisHy: My Dead Space review is done, but I'm way to lazy to type it up... I guess I'll try it.
