I wouldn't say better. some of them are just challenges. some of them are like, a sort of 'paint the board' type things, they might add a little spice to multiplayer but in single player i wouldn't say they add too much.
also load times are really bad and freezes/glitches run rampant, it's the only arcade game i'm genuinely pissed they never patched (since my fez game has seemingly gone unscrewed up lol). can i recommend it any less? the art style and aesthetics are really cool. which is how i got suckered into buying it lol but if i could swap it for the barebones arcade port on xbla i would in a second, the load times are just stupid for a 'pickup for 5 minutes then do something else' game like this and it just freezes/glitches too darn much. but i'm a sucker for art/aesthetics so i bought day 1 before message board topics about glitches and freezes were at my disposal.
Thanks. I was surprised how long the load times were in the trial. I'll definitely be on the fence on this one.
To my surprise I'm passing on a few of the games I thought I was going to buy like Frogger for now. They really should have let us play more than one mode in the trial. RAW was boring and I wished I was playing Torchlight while playing it so I'll stick to that instead. I did buy Joe Danger 2 since I liked the demo and own the first game.
I'm just like you. I will be debating Frogger and RAW throughout the sale, when they were first announced I thought I'd buy them for sure. I'd like to hit 2000 MSP for December so I can get the 100 points back, more than likely the Borderlands 2 Season Pass will get me there, unless it's not discounted enough for me to want to pick it up.
Just Fez for me (already have Hell Yeah, SA2, & Rayman 3). Already ran into a bug in the game, where I walked into an area & it booted me back to the dash for no reason. Sure hope I don't get anything worse, considering I heard some were game crashing.
You were booted back to the dash? Early in the game there is a fake game crash, but I didn't think it booted you all the way back to the dash. That's odd.
As for glitches on Fez, I definitely ran into serious stuttering when I started transitioning rooms in the later levels, but I don't think the game ever crashed on me. It did, however, delete my save file. But that was after I had 200/200 it so I don't really care.
Anyone have any thoughts on HELL YEAH! Wrath of the Dead Rabbit?
Gameplay is a tiny bit bland, but it's still a good action platformer and I'd say it's worth 600 MSP.
