I finished BioShock last night. I won’t spoil the game by revealing its secrets, but the ending was…a let down.
Don’t get me wrong: BioShock still has my strongest recommendation- I really enjoyed the game, and my rating is unchanged. But endings are always hard, and it seems that the better an entertainment is, the harder it is to end well.
Lionhead games released a game called “Fable” (note: site uses Flash plugin) a few years ago. I dismissed it because a few folks who liked “goofy/cartoonish” style games thought it was a great thing.
I picked up a discounted XBox version of Fable over the weekend. Not XBox 360, but XBox- it runs under emulation mode in my XBox 360, though. This means that the graphics aren’t great. But after playing the game for (according to it’s in-game stats) a bit over 7 hours, I can say I truly regret not trying it sooner.
