Games Come A Hauling
Is this going to set the tone for tonight? Two out of four the games that I received today have rather interesting FMVs.
Worms: Open Warfare 2 (USD 34.90 @ Play-Asia) for the Nintendo DS basically redeemed the sins of its predecessor, the one which I spent … I don’t know…RM 50+ for a miserable second-hand incarnation of the very first PC based Worms game on the Nintendo DS.
Whatever you have hoped for in terms of graphics, gameplay and weaponry, Worms: Open Warfare 2 has it… and then some.
I haven’t got a chance to have some multiplayer action, but Worms 2 has the coveted Nintendo WFC multiplayer mode, which should be a blast. I’ll write more about Worms 2 as I get some more play-time out of it.
The following came into mind as I first glanced at the cover of the second game: “Ultraman, Godzilla”. It’s interesting to see how Japanese culture permeates into the sub-concious mind, and it’s probably the arrangement of the blocks, and the font set on the cover of Meteos (USD 19.90 – Jap version @ Play-Asia) that reminded me of the two old school live-action Japanese series.
Other than its interesting FMV (and cover), Meteos looks like a strange beast of a game. Perhaps beast was too harsh an adjective, how about a “cute quirky looking animal of sorts”? It looks like Planet Puzzle League and plays a little like it as well, but Meteos is the older game, having got 2 years on PPL.
Having said that, I think I’ll stop buying puzzle games for the Nintendo DS, I’ve got too many of them in my inventory.
More on the rest of my haul today, tomorrow
