Call of Duty 4
Maybe the most enjoyable single-player FPS experience I've had since Goldeneye
and Half-Life 2
. Sure, it's full of scripted events -- as usually is the case w/ the CoD series -- but they're all too good. Don't pass it up.
On the downside, it is shorter than your average FPS. When it's this jam-packed and spares you the drone of repetition of other FPS'ers, you must forgive it, especially when it gives you one of the biggest jaw-dropping 'wtf' sequences in a game and leaves you satisfied by its end.
Big fan of Fallout 2
way back when and a fan of Oblivion
, so when I heard the Oblivion
guys were on the Fallout license I couldn't wait! And I'm not disappointed.
What people say is true: (1) you need to plug in several hours before most start to enjoy it and (2) blowing heads off does not get old.
Downside? Character animations are horrid, as they were in Oblivion
, especially when attempting to play in third-person view. Come on -- is that how people look when they hop around? And I really hoped they would retain that Fallout 2
humor and cultural reference abuse.
Still, an amazing experience. Yet to finish, so I'll spare a star-rating.
I'd say pretty much a must watch for designers. The film offers interesting perspectives on Helvetica's mainstream use and history. Helvetica</b> (the typeface) is pretty much everywhere. This quote from the documentary sums it up:
It's air, you know. It's just there. There's no choice. You have to breathe, so you have to use Helvetica.I use it all the time, almost as a necessity where I work, both fortunately and unfortunately.
