REVIEWS Disney Infinity 3.0 Review

After all these years, and growing up with Windows 3.1, I have seen an entire evolution of computers and software. Touch screens and large resolutions were a pipe dream just 15 years ago. Now it's the norm. Going from a Packard Bell (yes, before HP) that couldn't run 3D Ultra Mini...

What do these ratings mean?

Although I don't own the 360 yet (and I am still unsure if I will own it.) I have been able to play 3 games on it at the college here. Here is review 1/3 of my X-Box 360 reviews.

Graphics- Very impressive. The errie, gritty setting surrounded with the great light and shadow effects make it one of the most atmospheric games I have ever seen. It is great that the power of the 360 can do things like this, as it adds a new technological benchmark for both PS3 and Revolution need to follow. Also the character models are details and look awesome.

Final Grade- A

Play Control- I wish it was as developed as the graphics. I really do. While the control is simple, the movement around the beautiful enviorments was horrific, and the forensic scenes, while grusome, were kind of boring. I wish we had to search for them, not them being scripted. Combat makes up for this, as it was again simple, but this time it works. Especially since using guns is rare, and using weapons like shovels and two-by-fours. So not bad, but could of been better. combat is awesome, and the best part of the game besids the eerie graphics.

Final Grade- B-

Sound- In a word, satisfying. Errie music sets the mood, and eerie effects, from footsteps to crashes, makes you jump out of your chair. when your playing. Definitly another strong point in the game here.

Final Grade- A

Satisfaction- While I only played for about an hour, Condemned: Criminal Origins was definitly a romp. Despite it being a short, linear adventure, the sound and the enviorments really scare you, which is what this game is basically designed to do. If it was tweaked a bit more, it probably would of been a higher grade. Also a multiplayer would of been nice, but this a single players dream. Definitly worth a buy, perhaps not for the price tag now, but once prices go down, it's one of the best you can get.

Final Grade- B

Overall Grade- B
