While shopping for Enchanted Arms, I also spotted the Asian version of Ninety Nine Nights, with japanese voices and english text/subtitles. Here is a video from this version, showing more or less precisely what's good and what's wrong with this game. In no particular order: Great and fun mass destruction, very good graphics (this is not always the case), slowdowns, terrible lip sync, nice music, and boring/annoying bosses. And as a bonus, the lack of checkpoints in a game where levels can take 45 minutes to complete, with bosses that can kill the player in 2/3 shots. Ninety Nine Nights is most definitely one of the most frustrating games on 360, and it's missing so little stuff to actually be one of the best games on the system. A terrible shame.
As you can see the "low quality" video is already very big, so no 720p version for this one. But if you have a part you'd like to see in high resolution let me know with begin/end times and I'll do my best to encode it.
I liked the first one. The cover system works okay in elimination deathmatch. I'm not a fan of sticky cover as a rule though. Especially now that many games have done contextual auto cover that works. (2 Hours ago)
I guess so? It's been a long time since I played one to be fair (2 Hours ago)
Yea.. that's what Gears of War is. (3 Hours ago)
also GOW looked interesting from some of the competitive matches I saw. But lots of weird sticky cover play (3 Hours ago)
just started playing the Forest today and sunk too much time with my buddy. WOOF that game is fun (3 Hours ago)
New enemy types, namely the Snatchers, Pouncers, and Carriers were aggressively unfun to fight. Still a good game, not a great game by any means. 7/10 (5 Hours ago)
The new characters mostly uninteresting and their chatter during the game annoying at times. Marcus/Cole/Baird was very fun. Giant robots super fun. Wind mechanic way overused. (5 Hours ago)
