Just Cause 2 – First impressions(Xbox360)

I got my hands on Just Cause 2 today. I haven’t played the first one and actually didn’t know much about the game. So I started a new game on casual level. I play as Rico Rodriguez, an agent. The opening cut scene was in a helicopter, the graphics looked good and the voice acting was quite okay, it doesn’t annoy you or anything, but I’ve heard better. The story sounded quite clear, gotta get to the island and find some guy. While I was explained what to do the rebels on that island started shooting the chopper and all the intel fell out of it so my first mission was to collect that intel. There’s no auto lock in that game as far I’ve searched the option menus, but that isn’t a big problem, you just need more ammo.

My thoughts on the main character

I realized that the game is a lot about blowing up things and that’s damn fun. So another game with a fun factor in it, but lacks of story . Maybe the story gets good later on, but this is my first impression of the game. It’s not an ordinary shoot and kill game because you have to study the surroundings to complete the mission. Driving is pretty decent and using grappling hook is pleasing. Hanging under a helicopter with your grappling hook while shooting enemies makes you feel like James Bond and Batman at the same time. How awesome is that. I’m looking forward to completing the game and writing a review about it.

NBA 2K11 – Xbox360

Can you handle it?

TIME PLAYED – 50h

First basketball game on my Xbox.  I’ve played 2k10 on my PC and as far as i can tell – 2k11 on xbox is a lot better. The graphics look neater, the game sucks you more in and you don’t get so annoyed anymore due to stupid passes and so on. I’ve played “My player” the most and i really like it. You have different goals every game to achieve and it makes your game better. Thanks to all these drills you have while using “My player” mode your overall playing skill also gets better because you learn new things and learn how to use them. The commentary gets repetitive and the soundtrack aswell. The  good thing about the soundtrack is that even if you don’t listen to that kind of music it doesn’t annoy you because you have so many other things to think about while playing. The controls are good, but while doing the slam dunk competition, the controls are hard to learn. Also the 3-point contest is easy. Online multiplayer works and is pretty good. You can earn extra skill points for your player in “My player” mode if you play online against another person. After winning the playoffs in “My player” mode, the visit to the White House was awesome, but there wasn’t much of a celebration after winning the title.  Overall you just can’t hate the game if you nail a buzzerbeater or perform an amazing dunk. I really haven’t used the retro things in the game so i can’t tell more about that.
