Update: I was unfortunately not aware of Shamus Young's severe criticism of Fallout 3 available here to link in the original piece and I regret that. It dovetails rather nicely with what I've written and it's much better executed than my piece. I strongly recommend anyone...
I bought Black and White because it got such a nice review brom GR
Sadly,it was a total waste of money
The gesture system, which this game flaunts like a trophy is utterly painfull
Imagine this. U want to shift those trees/woods to your store.U can let the villagers do it themselves, in a very very slow speed
You can manually do it with your godly hands.
Now imagine shifting 100s of trees manually picking and dropping.Its fast, but really hurts your arms and fingers.And it sucks.Its no fun at all.
So basically to do well in the game, u have to do serious physical labor. Not to mention keeping constant watch over your hyperactive pet, and the on going story missions and its difficult objectives. Come on, this is a strategy game, not some Penny Arcade. We use BRAINS here, not our muscles!
Micromanaging my pet was fun in the begining, but later on, it was a chore.It was torture. Have u ever babysit a hyperactive disobedient kid? No matter how many time u instructs, he keeps fooling around.And its suicidal to leave him alone and unattended
Game is innovative, but innovation doesnt mean fun. After the 4th mission, i uninstalled the game. I still cant believe this game got such a good rating
Gamerevolution sure is Wonky.Very misleading reviews.I played Ghost Recon Advanced Warfighter 2 and i enjoyed it a lot. And Game revolution gave it a C!! IMO this crappy game gets C+ at best. A + because it had great graphics for its time
