I love FPS and I love strategy games but even I couldn't get into Full Spectrum Warrior. Great concept but like you said...too much work and not enough fun. Good reviews in general.
I never got D.O.A, granted I'm not the biggest fan of 3-D brawlers but if they are well done I can enjoy myself a lot. But DOA just seemed, well bland. The gameplay felt average to me and none of the characters ever stood out. Also it was one of the few games that made me feel emberessed to be male.
"The initial objective of the first stage is to "find an ID card to open the gate". Huh? Is this Jaws or freakin' Splinter Cell?!"
The idea of a shark using an ID card to open a gate is so funny! I'm laughing thinking about it.
I've always enjoyed DOA games. They may not be the deepest games, but they are an absolute blast to play with a bunch of friends. The tag team matches with four people is an insane amount of fun. Critic this game should be featured at one of your gaming tournaments (are you doing a VGX 2 this year?) I bet it would go over well. Also if you think that DOA 3 is great get DOA Ultimate. It's much faster and overall a much better fighter than DOA3. I bought mine new for $20 and it was worth every penny.
I would recommend Road to Hill 30 over Earned in Blood. The multiplayer in Earned in Blood is pretty broken compared to Road to Hill 30.
Shame to see the Full Spectrum Warrior review. I only played a bit round my mate's who owns it and we had a blast on it. But then we do play strategy games all the time (real ones too not just video games).
Brothers in Arms is terrible. You can get through the whole game without using the "strategy" function. The aiming is terrible, graphics bland and the game is way too easy. I would give it a solid D, don't waste your time critic!
