Weak

Boresiders 2...

THQ and Vigil hyped this game up too much. It simply could not meet the expectations that they set for themselves. The look of Death, as with War, looked like they both came out of a Fable title. When I think of the 4 Horsemen, I don't think of tiny heads and over-sized hands and feet. I'll admit, the graphics were decent, I just don't like the direction that they went with them.

Next on the chopping block, controls... While THQ touted Death to be a more agile and nimble fighter than War, the control scheme didn't convey this at all. The time I spent playing, I felt like I was controlling a lumbering oaf around the battlefield. Simply put, the controls felt too heavy and clumsy for Death to be as agile as he was SUPPOSED to be.

Also, THQ, was the story supposed to be ironic or something? Death resurrecting the human race? I didn't think it was ironic at all, it was just dumb...

I couldn't make myself play this game for more than a few hours, and I tried constantly to enjoy it and I just couldn't. My review is from the point of view of a player that made it as far as fixing the forge and obtaining that shoddy excuse for a pistol...

THQ, don't let this happen again, guys. This could have been so much better, which is what I was lead to believe. Instead, you recycled nearly everything from the first game and changed the protagonist. That, my friends, is not the formula for a good game.

look the game is really fun. its the type of game you play and you get to the end and wonder why it went by so fast. when in reality the game is 18 to 20hrs long just the main quest... unfortunately the game has alot of problems with freezing and glitches. for instance i didnt get to finish the game, i am 20 minutes from the end and on the loading screen it freezes every time i try to play. so 18hrs of gameplay and all gone do to a glitch. im not the only one look it up on goolge youll find a bunch of ppl with the same problems and more.. great story and all but whats a story without its end.
