Finally my Review in Progress series has reached double digits. About 2 – 3 games a month starting from February is not bad considering the amount of school work that went with it. A number of genres and platforms were covered, some familiar series’ and some entirely fresh games.
Of course, the impact of each game has yet to be quantified, so without further ado, I’m going to list the games I played in order from my least favorite to favorite, as a nice way to condense what games I recommend and in what order. Depending how well this goes, expect one summary/top 10 like this for every 10 Reviews in Progress.
This one’s a quickie and more of a catalog of articles that might have been missed to newcomers of The Wired Fish, so more detailed information, pictures and video clips can be found in the respective articles.
#10 – Okamiden (Review in Progress #4)
No, I never went back to playing Okamiden from where I was at the time of review. As a fan of the original, some of the changes were actually cool, such as the inclusion of partners that you could use to solve various puzzles. Unfortunately, most of the time you walk them around by drawing a path, it’s a slow hike to an out of reach treasure chest, and another line to return. Going for all the treasure in the dungeons was more tedious than it should have been as a result.
In short, the additions are poorly executed and elements carried over from the original were nowhere close to keeping my interest.
A second opinion was given by Steven offering different, and a more positive look on the game, check it out!
