I’ll be honest here. The game starts out fun (-ny), everything looks like Diablo, you can’t wait for the next drop or a new quest and you really have fun playing it. After a while though, it gets repetitive. Maybe it’s my choice of character, but basically it all became a long string of headshots. The bosses aren’t interesting at all, they feel more annoying. There really isn’t much of a strategy to any of them. They just have loads of health and hit hard. That’s all there is to it. You do a couple of headshots and run behind a wall to recover shields and health. This is mostly all that happens.
Don’t get me wrong, I still plan to complete the game, but I’m not sure it will be this year. The game is still loads of fun, but nowhere nearly as much as it felt like when I started playing it. Anyway, Mordecai is now level 25 and he did a few quests in the new town that followed after The Dahl Headlands. I can’t really remember the name now, but I can tell you the town is big and there are plenty of areas around it, so there is a possibility that this will be THE quest hub for the rest of the game.
After completing Modern Warfare, I decided to install this gem. Basically, it’s an FPS Diablo game with lots of great humor and beautiful cartoonish graphics. You run around doing missions, getting new weapons and running people over with your vehicle. During all that, you gather experience, find new weapons and train your skills.
The plot looks simple for now. There’s this planet that supposedly holds a legendary vault full of treasure and artifacts. No one is sure of it, but people flock to the planet to find it. It’s different for you though. You have this girl in your head that knows the vault is real and is guiding you to it.
Anyway, I did some tutorial missions in Firestone, killed some local bandit leaders like Nine-toes, Sledge and some other guy, blew up a pipeline, cleared some crap off a windmill, killed and ran over a bunch of skags, including Moe and Marley, cleared all the other missions and then traveled to the second area called “The Dahl Headlands” I think. My character is level 20, but since most of the game felt like a tutorial up to now, I’m guessing the ending is not near. Anyway, I’m loving the game, so I plan to play allot more. I mean like, right now!
