If you look way over there to your left you should see a nifty little poll weÃ‚'ve put up. This is your chance to give us your opinion without having to resort to sentences, periods, commas or even words! With two simple clicks you can feed ElysiumÃ‚'s un-holy desire for numbers that go up and give Sway and I valuable data we can possibly ignore if it means more work.Speaking of work, Enclave for the PC feels a whole lot like it so far.
ItÃ‚'s not often I play a game so un-inspired I feel like I should be making minimum wage while I indulge the developerÃ‚'s need to show me pretty things. Graphically, Enclave is a sharp looking game with some great environments and character models but the game play is so boring I donÃ‚'t know how long I can stand it. This is a pure hack and slash title yet the combat is falls flat time and again. Rather than rely on any real combat moves, the best way to survive as a warrior seems to be jumping in, swinging and then backing out again. Rinse, wash, fall asleep. As a hunter (bow/crossbow user) you run backwards and shoot in order to save the day. The druid is the most interesting though; with her you just shoot magic out of your staff until your enemy is dead one or two shots later. ItÃ‚'s ridiculously easy playing the magic user, you have to wonder why anyone would use the warrior instead.
I think this game would have been better off staying on the Xbox, it doesnÃ‚'t have the depth or ease of control it should have on the PC. Did I mention the port is so sloppy there isnÃ‚'t a mouse driven menu in the game? I hope you like arrow keys!
Glad I got that out of my system.
IÃ‚'ve also rented Tenchu 3 for the PS2 and IÃ‚'m not too impressed with the camera system so far. WeÃ‚'ll see how that pans out.
Now vote on the poll or IÃ‚'ll flip out and cut your head off!
