I originally intended to purchase Dead Space, but by luck i came across a box full of undisplayed Far Cry 2! I wasn't aware of its actual release date, and since my hunt for it yesterday was fruitless, i assume that today is the official launch of the PC version...
So i hereby present to you without further ado, Far Cry 2.
More than you could ever bargain for.
Not forgetting its realistic A.I.

Voted by Tom of The Film Kiwi, here it is....
Michael Myers from Halloween! The kitchen knife wielding, butcher of teenagers, who cannot die, as far as we know ( from stabbing, fire, or shooting even) which practically makes him ''UN-KILL-ABLE''
This villain stops at nothing, and cannot be stopped. Halloween masks and factory suits are his favourite gear, and with Halloween just around the corner...it would be wise to be on guard...

It goes in no particular order or ranking of how bad-ass they are...and as yet these are the potential candidates to RULE THE WORLD! in fear and oppression!
Venom, as seen in Spiderman 3 - this tragic character eddie brock, fused with the alien symbiote from spiderman, has left eddie brock from hopeless sucidal, to vengeful villain...
Now, to the Villain that needs no introduction, this fallen, prophecised saviour of the jedi and also the man who made famous the phrase we all know now '' i am your father'' - Dark Lord of the sith, has inspired fear into the galaxy beyond despite surrounding himself with rather incompetent stormtroopers with a penchant to miss their targets (stormtrooper effect)...ladies and gentlemen....Darth Vader!
Jigsaw Killer: Jonathan Kramer...from SAW. Butcher and psychotic sadist who pleasures himself in watching people struggle in his deathtraps. Boy, aren't we glad he's dead. Though, don't get too cocky yet. The film found in his autopsy tells us that the games have JUST begun...
So it is no suprise that i made a HORRENDOUS choice or purchasing a cheap-production-poor-graphical-textured video game. Yes, it's the only video game i've bought this year, and it by far is the worst.
My punishment for buying on impulse to burn time for the day. And what game was it? you might ask, Soldier of Fortune: Payback..... I always had a thing for soldier of fortune, be it the mindless senseless violence and gore which most games do not do so explicitly ( strewn limbs, heads, arms, blood spraying etc...) to the fast past run-and-gun action.
however this third instalment to the ''once'' popular title, has obvious buried, or cemented SOF's position in the videogame junk graveyard.
i was playing today right after purchasing it, and despite playing on easy, i realise that it seriously was a B I T C H, to get enemies. not that it wasn't hard to kill them, but it was bloody shoddly hard to spot them. Whilst i would say Call of Duty 4 was challenging as enemies sometimes blended well in the background, i would still applaud the realism and detail in the models and textures, however as for SOF3...the problem was the textures of the background and models were so BLAND, that the enemy models HARDLY stood out at all. Appalling really. While i may not be hardcore into the new games since my PC'S breakdown....i must say i still keep in constant practice for my FPS skills, but with the atrocious textures, terribly unconvincing gunshots and poor storyline cum narration .....this title falls FLAT. as in terribly flat.
Gamers will not be able to fully engage and be emotionally invested into the game. furthermore the action is blatantly unconvincing, and A.I is terribly dumb even at the hardest setting, and the only offensive or rather skill they have which aided them in their quest for my annahilation was the poor graphics and textures which made em' so well camouflaged. ( COD4 AT its hardest setting was still fun despite having to die every few seconds) in SOF3 , you could die wondering where or what happened.
controls were sluggish and sprint only headed in one direction. wtf?
ah well. for 39.90 it already is terribly overpriced. and as for its rating, i wont give it anywhere above 3 out of 10.
Highly unadvisable unless you have an expandable amount of cash and time.
on the other hand, after this experience, i'm going back to my old regime of doing some good old proper catch-up with the gaming scene....to prevent further dissapointments like these.
as yet two titles that have appealed to me since researching cross referencing reviews were DEAD SPACE and FAR CRY 2....

however the reviews i've read from the papers and online as yet, were somewhat dismal about the movie. But i'd still watch the movie. and i'd be back with a full review tomorrow.
A look at the movie's intro here

While it does look way much better after customing, batman no longer looks like fatman, i feel that the customer sanded a tad too much off the sides of the upper ribs...making his waist seem too slim and making his legs look out of proportion.
