I came into Injustice having never played a fighting game before, and within minutes II'm struggling to find things wrong with this game. I came into Injustice having never played a fighting game before, and within minutes I was slinging combos and destroying my opponents effortlessly (albeit on Medium difficulty).
The story mode was good fun, and it was interesting to see how all the characters' story arcs intertwined, although it was a bit short.
Even if you have never played a fighting game before, and like awesome super heroes, I recommend Injustice.… Expand

There's plenty to do, weapons to find, civilians to save, rabbits to kill, but after that, the game just ends. After I got through the stupidly short main quest, which barely scraped by as 4 hours, I figured I start with some of the guilds. The guild quests lines consisted of 3 fetch quests, 1 big fetch quest, and then I was head of the guild, all in under an hour. This is the same for all the guilds, including Mage's, Theive's, Dark Brotherhood's, and Companion's. The side-quests are equally disapointing. They all consist of the same formula: recieve quest, go to cave/fort, kill Draugr, return for gold. This is the rubrick for EVERY SINGLE QUEST.
All I'm going to say about combat is that it is a joke. Two enimies run up to each other and swing their swords until the other one dies, not bothering to roll, dodge, or move out of the way. They do occasionally block however, but not that it matters if you do, because you could just stand in the corner sucking your thumb until your health regenerates.
Almost everything from Oblivion and Morrowind has been dumbed down. Intricate alchemy system with calcinators and alembics? Gone. Fun spell making? Gone. Interesting quests? Gone.
The A.I. in Skyrim is laughable at best. I had just got done single-handedly taking out the entire Stormcloak army defending Windhelm, (my fellow Imperials just stood around shouting, bumping into each other) and had just slain Ulfrich. I then proceded to walk outside and was immediately called a "milk-drinker" by one of my comrades. This is just one of the many instances where the A.I. completely ignores your achievements. I have slain hundreds of "powerful" dragons, become the head of every guild, lopped off Ulrich's head and single handedly took out his entire army, and sold my soul to 16 different daedra, and still people treat me like a piece of sub-human trash.
Overall, Skyrim is fun for a while, until you realize that it a dumbed down version of Oblivion with laughable A.I. and dragon fights, complete with a boring world and copy-pasted side quests.… Expand

Great attention to detail, interesting quests and multiple storylines, a massive world to explore, and a multitude of weapons and spells to unleash on your opponents. I'm struggling to find things Bethesda did wrong with this game... Perhaps the animations could be a bit smooter, the bugs ironed out, and the leveling system fixed, but these are now expeced with every Bethesda game, and cannot be avoided with a game this large.
Overall, if you don't already own this game, you should probably do so. Even if you haven't played Morrowind, or any other Bethesda game for that matter, you owe it to yourself to buy this game.… Expand

The combat is excellent, the graphics suit the game perfectly and make for some beautiful views. The sheer amount of items, armor, weapons, and potions in this game is absolutely amazing. How the developers managed to put the huge world, hundreds of settlements, and tens of thousands of NPCs on one disc is astonishing. My only gripe with this game are the NPC animations when talking to them. They're stiff as a rod and show little emotions.
Overall, this game is a must have for anybody with an Xbox and a love for beautiful worlds and fun combat.… Expand

They praised theI was genuinely surprised that I did not like The Witcher 2, after hearing all the praise from both critics and friends. They praised the story, the gameplay, and the "deep" and "mature" writing. I failed to see any of this in-game.
My gripes with this game are mainly minors ones. For example, the animations. Everyone looks like they’ve got a rod down their spine, and they barely have any emotions at all. Geralt himself is a robot, responding with grunts and stiff nods. In fact, I found almost all the characters stale and uninteresting.
Secondly, the menu system. This game was not made for the consoles, period. The menus are crowded, messy, and hard to understand compared to other RPGs.
Thirdly, the combat. I found myself just mashing the "A" button until my opponent died, occasionally rolling away from attacks and waiting for my health to regenerate. I saw little purpose for using magic, and there was no need to.
Lastly, The Witcher 2 has a serious lack of customization and variety of its enemies and items.
Overall, The Witcher 2 has its shortcomings, mainly its menus, combat, and lack of customization. But it has its strong points too, like its story, even if it tries to be “mature.”… Expand
