Stay tuned for more Guild Wars 2 announcements and be sure to look out for our preview in just a couple of weeks.The crowds were once again out in force to see some of the biggest and best games that are due to hit our shelves soon!After another crazy day (where I finally got my hands on one of OnLive’s free consoles!), it’s safe to say that EuroGamer 2011 is outdoing last year’s offering! I went hands-on with a number of titles including: Final Fantasy XIII-2, Skyrim, Rift, and Guild Wars 2, to name a few. Keep reading to find out what I thought of them!
Final Fantasy XIII-2: The sequel to Final Fantasy XIII looks great! This is a game that is truly pushing graphical boundaries with outstanding character models and a scale that is simply stunning. However, in terms of gameplay, it is sorely lacking. After the excellence that was offered in Xenoblade Chronicles, FFXIII-2 seems slow, clunky, and laboured. This wasn’t the final build though, so hopefully there will be time to refine the gameplay to match the visual magnificence.
Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim: Okay, someone hand me a thesaurus, because I lack the adjectives to adequately describe how brilliant this game is! It’s a graphical leap that looks like a new generation in visuals, refined gameplay, visceral melee combat, and an improved magicka system come together to produce pure gaming bliss and that’s without even mentioning the setting. Skyrim is a beautifully realised Buy Fut 13 Coins world where details on the grand scale are equalled by the most minute ones. Whilst the demo on show was only 20 minutes long, it was more than enough to show that Bethesda has created another RPG epic that will be almost impossible to beat for the Game of the Year award!
Rift: Trion World’s attempt to gain ground in the realm of PC gaming that is dominated by World of Warcraft is a commendable effort. The graphics are great, and are available to gamers who don’t have a high end PC. Almost limitless customisation and a tried and tested battle system make Rift compelling. However, even with the imminent release of patch 1.5, it has been overshadowed by ArenaNet’s Guild Wars 2. This is a shame, as Rift is a game that is worthy of any MMORPG fans time.
