Game's over!

Modern Warfare 2 and Kingdom Hearts, that is. The later was a pain to the very end, but I finally put it behind my back. As I said before to my dear friend and KH lover Junlee, I just never got into it. But now I can get it out of my head and put the game to rest peacefully on the shelf. Guess what I started playing next?

Kingdom Hearts~: Chain of Memories! xD Nope, not joking, I'm playing the next games too, hoping that they improved with each new release. And so far this game doesn't look as long as the first one, so maybe it'll be over fast :D Like I said to a friend the other day, casual gamers play what they like, true hardcore gamers play everything, whether they like it or not!

A far more enjoyable experience, and far shorter, was Modern Warfare 2. It gets better as you progress, and for me it only got really interesting by the end of the 2nd act. The 3rd and final act is just awesome from start to finish. Overall though, although it's better than the first, the impact is just not the same after 2 years with the same basic gameplay and graphics engine. It's a pretty good game, but unless you're serious about the online component, at the current price it's just a rip-off.

I'll tell you right now. Chain of Memories is very different, and I for one, don't really like it that much. That's saying something, lol. I still haven't finished the damn game, and I got it for Christmas last year!

But you might like the card battle system and the way you progress through worlds.

Kingdom Hearts 2, on the other hand, is a game that I love! Everything is smoother and fine tuned. The one thing I don't like about the game very much though, is that the Disney worlds are damn near pointless, even more so than in the first game, and there are a lot of them. But there are some good ones. The main story is what I love about the second one, and the improved, although easy, battle system.

I'm still trying to hack my way thru MW 2.. I'm lovin the improvements from the first and being able to have more guns to pick up is nice as well.

Even tho the graphics haven't changed a whole lot - they still blow me away in this game- the fire and lighting is awesome towards the later levels.

Wow, a KH game you don't like! :D
I was going for KH2, but than I read that story-wise this is the next game after the original, so I went for it. I don't quite like the battle system, way too complicated for me, but so far the progression seems more straight-forward and the game looks shorter, so I'm kind of enjoying it so far.

Hi, Deitrix! :D For me MW2 was kind of a dissapointment because I loved the first MW (played it about 4 times, and got as far as half of the game on veteran difficulty) and the hype for this game was enormous. In the end, it just didn't deliver what it promised.

BTW, glad to see you here! I still visit your place quite often but I can't find a place to leave a message, so on your end it might have looked like I vanished but I'm still alive and kicking :)
