REVIEWS Wayward Manor Review
Not even the power of Neil Gaiman and The Odd Gentlemen could save this game from a fate worse than death: a terrible score.

Yesterday, while cleaning up my media center, I found my copy of Ratchet & Clank: Into The Nexus, which I bought sometime before Christmas last year. I had been pretty excited about this game pre-release, what with it being the first "traditional", albeit shorter than usual,...

What do these ratings mean?

The Good: Two Far Crys in one, some nice visual effects, great stealth gameplay, great voice work, amazing ambiance makes you feel like you're really there, Feral abilities are interesting, map builder is a nice feature, great online play

The Bad: Story is bland, graphics feel to old, game starts to fall apart 3/4 through, not enough weapons, AI can be iffy sometimes

Far Cry looked pretty damn sweet back in the day but now since the next-generation has rolled along Far Cry can look pretty ugly in some places. Yes it was one of the only games that pushed the Xbox beyond it's limits but now that the Instincts games are on 360 there's not much of an upgrade. Predator, in terms of visuals, is just a slight upgrade from the Xbox versions. It seems Ubisoft just added a bit of bump mapping here and there and that's it. Instincts seems very realistic and the guerrilla warfare was implemented really well here except when you get half way it falls apart and becomes your typical run-n-gun shooter. I rented this and I just stopped playing about 75% through the Instincts story since Evolution was just the same but with the second part of the story and slightly better visuals. The story isn't anything really special here either and it's kind of messy and hard to follow. The main attraction to Instincts though is the Feral Senses which gives you super human strength and the ability to see in the dark and sense smells. While these are great and all they don't make the game much better. You can set traps on trees and plant claymore mines which is also why the stealth in this game is just so awesome. The best part about this game though is the multiplayer. I never got a chance to try it but if it's anything like the PC version then it would be wonderful. You can make your own maps and everything and that's a big plus but it doesn't hinder the fact that this game feels to much from 2003. If you have the PC version then just stick to that and wait for Crysis and Far Cry 2 but if you don't then this would be a good bargain bin pick-up.
