Post E3 Game Thoughts 2011 – Part 2

post-e3-thoughts2011-part2

This is the continuation of my thoughts of games at E3.

Saints Row: The Third – Three words. Over the top. This third game is even more so than Saints Row 2. I was expecting just more in the style of the last game, but this craziness has been turned up to 20. The GS stage demo was quite hilarious.

Sly Cooper: Thieves in Time – Because I had my fill of the Sly Cooper games after just playing the second one, I don’t see myself getting the Sly Collection. However, this game looks fantastic and more so than I was expecting. It looks to be more of what made the previous three games great. I just hope it doesn’t overstay its welcome this time.

Tomb Raider – I remember this series not interesting me in the slightest until I saw Tomb Raider: Legend in action. I’ve been a fan ever since and this reboot looks cool. I’m sure most of the game is of a traditional style and isn’t comprised of the game’s beginning that was shown at E3 this year. I think it was a mistake to focus only on it which gave rise to Heavy Rain like comments. Here’s to hoping for better the next time it’s shown.

Twisted Metal – On the GameSpot stage this year they showed off the Iron Maiden boss battle. It took place in a canyon setting with the Dollface character controlling this huge robot. I’m not exactly sure what all of the objectives were, but there were quite a few. The biggest blow to my excitement for this game came when David Jaffe was saying that this boss battle would take 30 minutes at least and an average of an hour for most players. I don’t like this at all. In fact, now that I think about it, I don’t usually enjoy the boss battles in the Twisted Metal series. They always feel impossible and take forever. I’m looking at you Head On. I think I should admit it right here and now that I’m probably no where near the fan of this series that I thought I was.
