Expansion Packs

Between doing homework on my countdown to Spring break (2 assignments, 1 lab, 2 exams, 1 paper, 4 journal pages to go!), I played a some games, most of which were expansion content. Last weekend I finished F.E.A.R. Extraction Point, so this weekend I finished F.E.A.R. Perseus Mandate.

That was… not great. It’s biggest offense is an enemy that can just soak up an unholy amount of damage and it’s just a dude. He can deftly sidestep out of the way, except it’s not that effective when I’m in slow-mo. He’s more of a nuisance than anything. There was, however, a great level in which I was pursued by a large robot through an office building. That was awesome. But the rest? Skip it. It just made me wish I were playing F.E.A.R. 2, which is so mind-blowingly awesome.

I also played a little bit of Dead Space 2: Severed. It gives you the pulse rifle, flamethrower, and seeker rifle from the start, which is great because I didn’t use the flamethrower or seeker rifle at all in the main campaign and I wanted to give them a shot. I really haven’t played much of it but it’s certainly more Dead Space 2!

Finally, all that Doom 2 I’ve been playing made me want to play a little Doom 3 so I loaded up the Resurrection of Evil expansion because it’s what I’ve played the least of. I think I’ve only gone through it three times. That is one slow moving game. For realz. Especially when compared to Doom 2. Even when compared to F.E.A.R.
