Gamerscore Update – 1st Feb 2009

It’s been just over a week since my last gaming update (previously named “weekly update”). I haven’t really managed to settle on a naming convention for this regular post, but for now “Gamerscore Update” seems most fitting as it might be a little tough sometimes to post an update on the same day of each week. Anyway…

This week I haven’t managed to play on my xbox 360 as much as I probably would have liked (I had 3 days without playing anything!). That said, I did manage to have some fun and earn a few achievements along the way.

Too Human (675/1000)
I finally got around to finishing this game (although by finished I mean just the main story, not the full 1000 gamerscore). Overall I really enjoyed this game. Sure, it got some negative reviews and there is a lot of room for improvement, but I will definitely be returning to Too Human for some more online co-op and a few more achievements.

The Maw (180/200)
I’ve already written a post about how awesome Maw is. This is definitely one of the top 5 xbox live arcade games I have ever played. (Castle Crashers still holds the number 1 spot for me I’m afraid).

Assault Heroes (50/200)
This is one of those games I thought I’d try as it was only 400 points. So far I’ve only had time to blast through the first level, but this is an incredibly fun arcade game. I can’t wait to try it co-op with a friend.

Guitar Hero: Aerosmith (300/1000)
I managed to get quite a good deal for this and purchased it for my Girlfriend’s son as a birthday present. Eventhough it mainly consists of Aerosmith songs, there are quite a few others to make it not too samey/repetitive. The game feels fresh and exciting and we all really enjoy playing this game. For those who love easy achievements, Guitar Hero: Aerosmith is a lot easier than the other Guitar Hero games.

GRAW 2 (45/1000)
This is another game I managed to get a good deal on. Infact, I got a very good deal on Ghost Recon Advanced Warfighter: Legacy Edition (£9.99 from play.com). I’ve always loved the Rainbow Six games, but never really enjoyed Ghost Recon. For the price though (with all the additional content), I thought Id give it a try. So far I have only got through the training and it’s… okay. I think I need to play this more before I can really find out if I like it or not.

Current Gamerscore: 31940

Matt has been hooked on games since he received his first console (a SEGA Mega Drive) for his 7th birthday. He now spends most of his time on the Xbox One, Xbox 360 and Nintendo 3DS, but will use any excuse for a retro gaming night.
