BioShock: CM Rating: 96%
Bioshock begins right off the bat with a fantastic introduction. Flying in the dead of night you soon find that the plane is taking a detour; straight for the ocean. Worry not, however, as you will survive this plummet into the sea. After a quick struggle you are at the surface, surrounded by flames. Flames roaring all around, water splashing onto the camera, waves roaring in the deep sea, a thick smoke fills the air… and then you realise, the cutscene has ended and you are now in control. Instantly the water and fire effects will leave you speechless, as they are without a doubt the most impressive you have yet to come across. You come to your senses, take control and head towards the only light that will not seriously burn you, the light emitting from a lighthouse in the distance. Whilst it is obvious that this is not the most intelligent of moves, you have little choice.
Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion: CM Rating: 93%
Role Playing Game. The words that strike fear into many games players out there. RPG’s conjure up visions of rolling dice, battering goblins and copious amounts of beards and tavern wenches. Most people either love or hate their RPG’s and the next in the long running RPG series called The Elder Scrolls (1994 was the first) has just landed on the Xbox 360 – which will either increase their love or loathing for the goblin bashing genre. The Third Elder Scrolls, Morrowind, appeared on the original Xbox console to an odd response. Most people thought that the RPG dice rolling genre belonged to the PC, so to see Morrowind appear was a shock. Oblivion now arrives to fill the RPG void in the current 360 catalogue, but how does it fair? Is there an enjoyable game to be found underneath all this goblin mashing? Well you can join me in a vast journey into the mind, soul and beard of Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion.
So, there you have it, two big hitters merging together to create the best double act that has ever graced our screens. Let us know if you’ll be purchasing these titles by leaving your comments below.
