Funk of Titans Review
It’s always particularly tough to find the funk of a game when it already doesn’t have much rhythm.

I wish I could claim some mastery over this topsy-turvy classic starring elf boy who saves princess. Predictable, right?

Finally Broke My Crowdfunding Rule
By oblivion437
Posted on 01/12/15
I've had a long-standing rule to avoid getting involved in any sort of crowdfunded activities.  I didn't donate to Shadowrun or Wasteland, but I did buy and enjoy both of them (I'm plugging both of those games right now, just so you know they're good).  I haven't...

The Good: Improvements on all the original problems, continues the decent story, still has the same good 'ol GRAW gameplay intact

The Bad: Only slightly improved graphics, still crippled multiplayer, shorter than the first, feels more like an overall expansion than a sequel

GRAW was one of the first games I ever played on my 360 and for that I love the series. I always loved the series back when it was released on the PS2 (at the time I didn't think it sucked I know...that version was terrible) and now the series just keeps getting better and better. This version, however, feels like an expansion pack than a full out sequel.

                    The story continues with the Mexicans vs. Americans war and this time they have a nuke (you can figure out what happens there). The game is EXACTLY the same as the first so I won't explain what you already know. There are some new cool weapons though (the names are too complicated to remember) and a new support vehicle the M.U.L.E. This provides ammo and health and will follow you throughout your mission. You can now see what your squad and other support is seeing by holding down RB and you can tell them where to go through this as well. This is a BIG improvement and is much needed. Plus you can now move the UAV around in the mode as well.

                    The graphics are only slightly updated (they don't look to impressive now) and the multiplayer is only slightly updated but is still crippled (why can't they keep the single player stuff in the multiplayer? It's been this way since the first game.) I also want to point out the cover system. Yes, it's not as good and Rainbow Six's cover system but it works so stop being lazy and quit complaining.
