Alternate Reality Gaming... Its the free running thing but your "phone" makes gold coins appear floating in the game world. It's like the thing the 3DS can do with the cards. It's neat.Brownie80 said:What does ARG mean? And you know how to play chess? There's chess in this game? Does that mean there is backgammon and Chinese checkers too? Just wondering.SaneAmongInsane said:I'd say a 6 or 7. It's functional. I've only encountered one glitch so far (An enemies dead body contiously spinning on the floor) and thats after a ton of gameplay.grey_space said:I completely agree. It's a very polished game. The hacking is cool for the infiltration bits and when you are in the midst of a shootout.SaneAmongInsane said:It's Good. It's Decent. It's only problem is it's not amazing.
The plot is like a bad movie though, but the gameplay is enjoyable. I like in the middle of a shootout using the camera's and making shit explode halfway across the map. And when you manage to clear out a building all stealthy like you feel really cool.
But there just doesn't seem to be anything that really grabs at you. Maybe if the protagonist was a little bit more interesting or the plot a little less hackneyed?
I am finding the driving difficult enough but I generally suck at driving in these games anyway so I'll be getting a couple of the driving perks when next I decide to level up.
I personally think that a score of 4-4.5 is a perfectly reasonable score to assign the game. It's just missing a certain undefinable..something that would make it a classic.
And the sidemissions, the ARG freerunning, playing chess, the digital trips, those bits are really amazing.
Grey Carter tweeted that he was doing it and got hit by a train
Chess and only chess, and yes I do know how to play. Am I any good? No. Not really. but it's enjoyable.
Theres also a drinking minigame that's a fun time waster.
Really if it wasn't for all the extra bits I'd be disappointed but theres enough fun to be had outside the campaign. The puzzles. Killing people because they're homophobic or whatnot. Police chases are fun enough.
