Trying to catch up on old games, still. Which XBox 360 title would you recommend for a 5-day rental period, and why?
Currently looking at Fable 2, Far Cry 2, Gears of War 2, Left 4 Dead, Mass Effect, and Oblivion.
A mix of shooters and RPGs. Which one, guys? (Or something else)
What Game should I rent next?
"Personally, I never try to rent an RPG because I don't have the kind of time to play an RPG and get a full gaming experience out of it within the rental period.Well you could get a lot out of Fable II in a rental period. From that list I would recommend Left 4 Dead because I love that game and everyone should be playing it!
In this case, I recommend FarCry 2 or Gears of War."
I do have XBL. Dead Space looks like it's extremely well-done, but the generic, B-movie premise and plot kind of turned me off to the game. I will probably eventually give it a shot.
Sounds like most people are recommending Left 4 Dead or Fable II, and suggesting I stay away from Mass Effect or Oblivion (as a rental). Hmm; those two are so different that I don't know which one to choose.
Bear with me here :) Another question: how is L4D with strangers on Xbox Live? I don't really play with friends online most of the time.
I'd go for Mass Effect. Partly because I've just finished my fist play through and want to spread the love. :D
It's an RPG, so it depends how much of a completionist you are. I reckon you could play through the main quest easily in about 12 hours, and that's if you take the time to listen to the story. I did the majority of the side quests, and it took about 20 hours - plus I went treasure hunting. (my estimations may be flawed, since I can never bring myself to play just the main quest.) Also, it depends on how much of an achievement junkie you are, since all achievements require multiple play throughs... If it's like an online rental thing where you could take your time, I'd go for it!
But seriously - it's one of the best and modt engaging games I've played in a long, long time. Deffo worth a play sooner rather than later. :)
Edit: Ah - 5 days. sorry. I think u could do it tho. :)
