Skywalkre Posted July 1, 2022 Share Posted July 1, 2022 (edited) I'm finally done with WoW TBC Classic and my Pathfinder games are on indefinite hold while we try to find replacement players... which means for the first time in ages I've had time to play some PC games. I lucked out (or maybe not?) by having this coincide with the Steam summer sale. Picked up some games for fairly cheap I was always looking at. Thoughts on two I've already finished (and deleted). - Halo Wars - Was always curious about this. Regret getting it... even for the $5 I paid. Just a terrible game and a step back in so many ways compared to StarCraft which came out 20 years ago (still bad for when it first came out which was a decade after StarCraft). Sad to see such a lazy port from console to PC. Finished it in just 8h. Only reason it took this long was because of some really poor level design. I've noticed with RTS titles from recent years that they're trying too hard to be original that they end up being annoying. I actually don't mind building bases and an army to go kill my opponent. Kind of the reason I'm playing an RTS in the first place. - Halo: Reach - This one was... meh. Squad AI is atrocious. Missions are fairly linear and boring. UI is terrible (in particular the vehicle missions). I actually went back and started the original Halo (slowly... playing a mission a day) and I'm actually enjoying that far more (that at least has a decent rework to modern standards and the music is still top notch). Finished Reach in just 6h (would have been faster but was up late and incredibly tired). Kind of sad that single-player experiences seem to be a second thought in so many games these days. 😞 So... going through my folder I'm seeing Radio Commander and Atlantic Fleet. Anyone played these? Thoughts? The concept behind Radio Commander seems really interesting. Anyone come across any other games that surprised them or they're really enjoying? It's kind of sad... most of my friends are gamers... and most can't think of a good title out there right now. Like... when you look at reviews for Halo Wars and Reach they're pretty good and I just can't help but wonder why in the hell so many gamers out there have such low standards to rate those games as high as they did.
