    Mar 5th, 2008 at 18:57:01     -    Enter the Matrix (PS2)

    Entry #2

    GAMEPLAY

    During my second session of gameplay, I played as the other character, Ghost. In the game, Ghost plays a different role in the game. He is the shooter or he handles the weapons when both he and Niobe are working together in the game while Niobe is the one who drives the car or the ship. Like Niobe, Ghost also has some cool martial arts skills and he is also skilled with weapons. I like the fact that both characters in the game are able to move in slow motion by using their “focus.” While using the “focus,” Ghost can move in slow motion and he can dodge bullets easily. While using the “focus,” you are able to see the bullets fly passed you as you dodge them in slow motion. While using the “focus,” you also get a little bit stronger and you are able to defy gravity.

    I really like using the “focus.” I think it is very cool and I haven’t seen it in other video games that I have played. Being able to use the “focus” makes me feel like I am able to do the gravity defying stunts that are seen in the movie, The Matrix. In my opinion, one of the aspects of this game that makes it very interesting and very fun and exciting to play is that it really feels like I am in an action movie where I am the main character. In this game, you fight the bad guys or you run away from the bad guys and that is what makes the game very thrilling and suspenseful. I really like suspense and that is one of the reasons why I like to play this game.

    DESIGN

    In my opinion, I think the design for this game is great. The developers of the game really captured the world of The Matrix movies. The design of the video game characters really looks like their real-life counterparts. The video game character, Niobe, really resembles the actress, Jada Pinkett-Smith, who plays the character in The Matrix movies. The design of the gameworld is somewhat realistic. The design of the gameworld definitely does not have a cartoonish quality to it like some of the games I have previously played. It is certainly not whimsical. The design really has a real-life feel to it. For instance, the buildings are modeled from buildings that you would see in metropolitan cities. One thing I also like about this game are the cut scenes.

    The cut scenes are actually extended scenes from The Matrix movies. The cut scenes really setup the narrative of the video game. The cut scenes also function to give fans of the movies a little more insight to the world of The Matrix and a little bit more of understanding what is going on in the movies as well as the video game itself. This game really has some innovative elements that I haven’t seen in other video games I’ve played. I really like the concept of the “focus” in which the video game characters can move in slow motion to help them get a little bit stronger and also help them to dodge bullets. I haven’t seen this feature in other video games. This feature really makes the game fun and thrilling to play. This feature is also one of the interesting things about the whole video game. It really makes the game unique and innovative.

    Entry #1

    SUMMARY

    Enter the Matrix is a 1 player action role playing video game in which you can either choose to play as two different characters, Niobe or Ghost. The characters and the video game are based on the movie, The Matrix. There are two main objectives in this game. Niobe and Ghost each have their own objectives to complete. The main objective of both characters is to help save Zion, the humans’ last living city that is located underground, from annihilation by the Sentinels, a group of machines that are trying to annihilate the human race.

    GAMEPLAY

    This game is unlike any other video game I’ve played. First of all, I really like The Matrix movies and to have a video game that is based on it was a great idea. This video game gives the player a chance to “enter the matrix.” It gives the player the chance to feel like they are in the movie. When I play the game, I really feel like I’m in the movie. When I play the game, I really feel like I’m in an action movie. The video game allows the player to enter the world of The Matrix. The video game also allows the player to do things similar to what the characters do in the movie such as “the bullet time” effect where the player can move in slow motion and dodge bullets. The video game characters also know martial arts similar to the characters in the movie.

    In the game, you can use cool martial arts moves on your enemies. I really like the fact that you can choose to play as two different characters. Each of the characters, Niobe and Ghost, have different roles in the game. For instance, when both characters are working together in the game, Niobe is usually the driver and Ghost is the shooter. This game is also very interesting and very fun to play. The game is also very exciting. During my first session of gameplay, I played the game as Niobe. Niobe is a strong female character who can kick some butt with her martial arts skills and she also has great driving skills. Other than using martial arts to dispose of enemies, you also can use various weapons that you can use against your enemies like guns and grenades. For my next session of gameplay, I plan to play as Ghost.

    Feb 20th, 2008 at 17:38:56     -    Shadow of the Colossus (PS2)

    Entry #2

    GAMEPLAY

    During my second session of playing, I was able to defeat three more colossus or giants. I realized as you move on and progress to the different colossus, they get harder and more challenging to defeat. Each colossus is different from the other one. They all have different attacks and the ways in which to defeat them are different from one another. I really enjoy playing this game. I enjoy the challenges of figuring out how to defeat the different colossus. Defeating the colossus is like solving a really complex puzzle. That is one aspect of the game that makes me enjoy playing it. At times, I did get a bit frustrated because it took me a while to figure out how to defeat one of the colossi.

    Once I start playing this game, it is a bit hard to stop. After you defeat one of the colossi, I get the urge to want to find the next one and try to defeat it. I get to urge to want to see what makes the previous colossi different from the next one. One other thing that I noticed while playing the game is there are no other enemies that you have to deal with. Once I defeated the fourth colossi, I started to figure out that the game might me like this throughout. I think this one aspect of the game is what makes it unique and different from other games of the same genre. The only enemies you have to worry about are the colossus.

    DESIGN

    I really like the design of this game. The graphics are great. The graphics give the game a sense of realism. The design and the graphics of the game make it feel like I’m watching a movie or that I am in one and I get to control the main character. The camera for this game I think is also great but it does get annoying sometimes. The movement of the camera can get a bit disorienting by the way it moves but I do like the camera angles. This game is in the third-person perspective and I think the camera work and the camera angles for this game is great for one that is in a third-person perspective. For instance, when I am riding the horse and the camera is right behind the character, I get to see the vast landscape right in front of me and I think that is what the camera for this game does well. It makes me feel like I’m in a movie.

    The controls of the game are very simple. The only modes of transportation in the game are either walking, running, climbing or riding on Ando, the horse. There are only two weapons available to you to defeat the colossus and they are a sword or a bow and arrow. This game is very simple. It doesn’t try to be too complicated as many games sometimes are. All that you pretty much do in this game is find all the colossus, figure out how to defeat them and move on to the next one. This certain aspect of the game is what makes a unique as well as a fun game to play. I also like the fact that to be able to find the next colossi, you use the light that reflects from your sword to point you in the right direction. The design and the graphics for all the colossus are also great. Each colossi have their own characteristics and I think the graphics and design are all well done. The developers of this game really did a great job at making each colossi different as well as a bit daunting. All in all, I think every aspect of the design of this game was well done.

    Feb 20th, 2008 at 17:09:56     -    Shadow of the Colossus (PS2)

    Entry #1

    SUMMARY

    Shadow of the Colossus is a 1 player action/adventure role playing video game. The story of this video game is a great one. It is almost like a movie. It is a story of a man who wants to bring back the woman that he loves back to life. In order to do that, he has to defeat a certain number of colossus or giants. The main objective of this video game is to defeat all of the colossus or giants. There are total of sixteen giants that you have to defeat. Each one is different from the other.

    GAMEPLAY

    After just a couple of minutes of playing the game, I found that the game is very interesting because of the graphics and the story. The story and the concept of the game are unlike any other game I’ve played before. I haven’t heard of or seen this game or played this game before. When I was playing the game, I felt like I was in some sort of epic fantasy movie and I get to control the main character. It took me some time to get use to the controls for the game. During my first session of playing game, I was kind of surprised that I immediately had to face the first colossi or giant.

    Now the first colossi or giant was a little bit scary. I felt my heart pounding a bit because it looked scary and a bit terrifying. It was huge and hairy and it was also holding a huge club in its hand which I presumed it would use to try and kill me. Looking at this humongous creature, I was wondering how I was going to be able to defeat it. It took me quite a while to figure out what I was suppose to do. I felt a little frustrated that I couldn’t figure out what I was supposed to do. Luckily, the game gives some clues of what to do. When I finally managed to defeat it, I felt relief and I now had an idea of what I was going to be facing as I progress further into the game.
