Its Always Nice To See A True Sequel Come Along
Total Articles: 197
If I’m having difficulty beating a particular boss monster by myself, it’s nothing for me to just send a message over Steam to a friend of mine, asking him to briefly pop in to my game with a character of the appropriate level and give me a quick hand. A fair trade off—we split up the loot, and he vanishes to go off and do his own thing.If you’re playing your character in someone else’s game and he’s actually farther along in the story than you are, the developers were kind enough to take those instances into consideration. When you go back to your own game and arrive at the quests you’ve already beaten with your friend, the game gives you the option of just skipping ahead of the content you’ve already done if you don’t feel like doing those missions over again.
These sorts of minor ‘quality of life’ features were missing from the first Borderlands and often created a situation where you wanted to play with your friends but they were simply too high a level or were far past the content you were involved with, creating dead-zones where it would take too long for you to catch up to them or for them to make new characters to catch up to you. Borderlands 2 lacks those dead-zones due to the aforementioned features and a much more generous distribution of experience points when there is a large disparity in levels of the characters.
Single- or multiplayer, even the missions themselves are much improved over the first game. The pacing, map design, and rewards of the missions in the original Borderlands were glaringly inconsistent and often led to large amounts of your quests being ‘greyed out’ or rendered trivial in their difficulty or rewards. In Borderlands 2, the flow of the game’s locations and quests is much more even and maintains the level of challenge and reward fairly consistently throughout the entire game. Certainly, you could opt to power-game your way into making your quests trivial by relentlessly grinding enemies, but following the game’s intended flow doesn’t really make that kind of hardened grind necessary.
It’s always nice to see a true sequel come along that does more than just offer a regurgitation of the first title. Borderlands 2 improves on its predecessor on every level, and does so with such breadth that I often found myself appreciating new features that I didn’t even realize were missing from the first game that I now find indispensable.Every so often, friends or family will write something up and send it to me, asking for my opinion on their first draft. Some of these drafts are impressive, and don’t need any help at all. Sadly, others are not as polished. In either case, I don’t edit these pieces, because editing isn’t what they’re looking for. Instead, they use the phrase, “Just tell me what you think”.
Signal Ops, designed by newcomer Space Bullet Dynamics Corporation, needs the same treatment as the pieces given to me. I say unfortunately because this game feels like a first draft, albeit a complete one with inconsistencies. It’s not a bad game by any stretch of the imagination, but it has kinks and problems that prevent it from being good.Let’s begin with the game’s objective. Signal Ops is advertised as a squad-based, tactical, first-person shooter with a heavy emphasis on stealth and subterfuge. This is fifa 14 coins a bit of a mouthful, so I’ll break it down.
