Finally got my hands on Drakes Fortune 2, and, well... I wanna say it sucks >.< really, I do. I hated the first one, and the second has all of the same problems, but I just can't bring myself to totally dismiss it. It's good. Not great, not terrible. the graphics are amazing, the gameplay and controls are pretty polished and fun, with the exception of his retarded jumping. But really, could they be playing it any safer?
Wtf Naughty Dog? You made some of the best games ever :/ Jak and Daxter 3, Infamous, both games on my top 10 list, easily, but I look at DF2 and then to Infamous 2, and the level of production values for the former totally destroys the latter. You sink all your resources into the most plainest, unsurprising, bland game possible, when you made Jak and fucking Daxter, and totally revolutionalized super hero sandbox games.
The characters, the levels, the gameplay, the villains, the controls, everything about DF2 is like a cut and paste from another game, like a Frankenstien made from stitched up bits of Tomb Raider, Gears of War, Indiana Jones, Prince of Persia. The resulting construct is a functional, able and skilled monster with an absolute lack of anything even remotely similar to charm or personality.
Oooh, another chopper! I guess theres a box of RPG's around here somewhere. I hope my charming boyish wise cracking that only I find funny will protect my generic brown fringe as I go to collect it and save my tough blond girlfriend from all the nasty bullets and that foreigner bad guy whose clearly evil because he's scarred and has a foreign accent. WHERE HAVE I SEEN THIS BEFORE? Dx
