Wow, and I thought the XBox 360 reviews for [b]Gotham 3[/b] and [b]NFS: Most Wanted[/b] were record-setting lengthy. Congrats already on making [b]King Kong[/b] your lengthiest review by far... maybe too lengthy!
I also own this game and I'm torn about how I feel about it. It's one gorgeous-looking game that completely immerses the player into the world of Peter Jackson's 'Kong' movie. I love that there's no HUD to let players know what button to press to do things (it's optional too) and the levels where you play as 'Kong' are boss (too few of them though). On the other hand the freaking thing is just too short, linear and repetitive to be worth the $60 asking price. I ended up buying the game used for $35 and have played it three times, so I guess my actions speak louder than words.
Did you experience any problems with the game on your plasma HDTV set? Ubisoft reported that consumers reported the 'King Kong' 360 game had some problems running on some HDTV setsand they were working on finding out which sets they were.
I like the reviews but they are lengthy! I think they are getting to the point of becoming verbose. Nonetheless great reviews although sadly there is still nothing on the 360 that makes me want to run out and get one. I am a huge X-Box fan but I think the 360 is doomed to mediocrity. I think the headstart Microsoft hoped to achieve on the Rev and PS3 is going to backfire! Peace!
You are correct sir - these reviews are really pushing the limit, in terms of how long I think a review should be. In general, my reviews for modern games tend to be more lengthy, because there's more to talk about. However, I think one of the strengths of my review style is that I get right to the point. So if I start putting in "fluff", let me know!
Yeah that King Kong review is really huge.
