Xbox One Whistlestop Reviews (number 2)
Middle-Earth: Shadow of Mordor - A rare impluse purchase from the online store. This was on "sale" and I was feeling lazy and the £30 price point, which was no cheaper than non-sale prices for a physical copy I could have sold after I finished it, was just low enough to tempt me to part with my cash. Best decision I've made on the Xbox One to date. This is probably my favourite Xbox One game to date. It took everything good with the Batman Arkham series and managed to put it into an open world without ruining the game, something Rocksteady completely failed to do in any of the sequels to Arkham Asylum in my opinion.

Would highly recommend.

Crimson Dragon - A Games with Gold freebie. Panzer Dragoon (I & II) were two of my most played games on my Saturn back in the 90s. Panzer Dragoon Saga is possibly my favourite game of all time. As much as I long for a sequel to the latter I'll settle for a spiritual successor to the former series. Blink and you'll miss the Kinect integration -- I didn't make use of it once. I wasn't expecting much from this, I really only fired it up out of morbid curiosity, but I ended up sinking at least 40 hours into this game and enjoyed most of them.

Would highly recommend.

Strider - Another trip down memory lane. I can't put my finger on why, but this game never managed to capture my interest, certainly not in the way Shadow Complex achieved on the 360. I still come back to this and put in the odd half hour every now and again, but I never find myself desperate to come back for more the next day.

Wait for it turn up free on Games with Gold.

Defence Grid 2 - The sequel to one of my favourite last-gen games. Such a disappointment though. I can't say this is a bad game, because it's not, but it doesn't even come close to the first in any aspect.

Would recommend, but only if you already own the far superior original game.

Diablo III - I can't even count the hours I lost playing this game. This game has the loot cycle perfected. The best thing I can say about this is I never once felt like I was stuck in a grind, yet I was constantly getting my fix for newer, shinier loot. The variable difficulties made the game perfect for both laid back "don't want to think too much" and more intense sessions, usually I have two games on the go depending what mood I'm in, but while this was in my X1 it was the only game I played.

Would highly recommend.

Comment by Durera at 20:10 on 15 Jan 2017

It's been a long haul for sure ... just need half a dozen more wins for the 250 wins and then I'm done with CQC completely!
