TODO - make a proper page
Well. I had heard good things about this game, and since it was on sale I thought I'd pick it up.
I regret it.
The first impression is the resolution is awkward. The aspect ratio looks odd (1920x1080) and the mouse feels odd.. like the game was made for the old aspect ratio and widescreen was an afterthought.
It's "on rails" for as long as I could manage to play it, and then I got hopelessly lost and gave up. My waypoint arrow vanished at one point, and I had no idea where to go. Wandering around and around three times didn't help.
Fighting is unforgiving. A single cast takes up a crazy amount of mana.
The ideas are all good. From multiple spells and multiple guns to different elements and ammo.
I was also horribly spoiled when told about the irishman.
All in all, it's a game that might have been great at the time, but definitely doesn't hold up enough for a new player now. I guess my love for this genre has bled out over the years.
I have the two other BioShocks, but won't play them since I can't slog through this one.
