Lately, I’ve been looking for some good games, action/adventure stuff, but after finishing assassin’s creed, the nomad soul and fahrenheit(indigo prophecy), I’ve been looking for something new and better, I mean:
Assassin’s creed, great graphics, pretty good story, but it’s too much og the same thing over and over again, it needed more variation.
Nomad soul, in my opinion still one of the best action/adventures out there, but the graphics are seriously outdated(what would you expect from a game released almost 10 years ago). Aside the fact that I’ve been waiting for a follow-up for 5 to 6 years, but one of the projects (nomad soul exodus) was cancelled in 2006 and the other project (nomad soul karma) was due 2009 but will probably be even later because of something called heavy rain, which I don’t care much for.
Now there’s another quantic dream game… Fahrenheit, after geting used to the controls, it really is a great game, except I really miss the freedom I had in The Nomad Soul, in which you can enter almost every building, and alas, I believe it was made with the same engine as the nomad soul so, graphics are still… a little disappointing.
All great games in my opinion, but they all just miss one or two tiny things. Now here’s my question to you: In the action-adventure genre, what are your favourite games, why is it that you like it so much and what do you think is missing?
