I played through a bit pile of these today, so thought I’d bung them all into one post.

Blacksite:
Urgh. I don’t really like FPS games. I also don’t like squad-based shooters, and marines-vs-aliens shooters are, in my opinion, dull. So imagine my joy when I realised that Blacksite is a shad-based FPS with marines shooting aliens. I could barely contain my excitement.

Colin McRae’s Dirt:
Where I come from, “dirt” is a synonym for “poo”, so this game is basically called Colin McRae’s Excrement. Thankfully, it isn’t as bad as it sounds. You get three styles of driving – rally, track, and off-road. Track was a bit dull, but the other two were great fun. Even if I did manage to lose a door, two wheels and my engine colliding with a rock on the mountain climb stage…

Forza Motorsport 2:
Doesn’t look half as pretty as I was expecting, and the simulationness of it just puts me off. I prefer arcadey racing games, like Outrun 2 and Project Gotham, and this is just too… boring. Like Gran Tourismo is, in fact.

Rush’n Attack:
Still as impossibly hard as I remember it. I don’t think I even managed to reach the bit after the red steel bridge. Too hard for me to bother with buying, actually.

Xevious:
Well, it’s not awful, anyway. There’s nothing actually wrong with it, it’s just that it’s nothing special. Too many later vertical shooters have made this just decidedly average, unfortunately, so I won’t be buying it. Besides, I’ve already got it for the GBA…
