Dirge of Cerberus Review

You know the drill by now, scoring 58% from 26 reviews though the fans on site gave it a healthy 78% on Metacritic.com

Reviews Summary
Unique take on RPG, FPS genres, but dosen't execute any extremely well
Ugly cynical and tiresome, terrible, overblown, opportunistic nonsense
This is no rpg and it's no picnic, wait for FFII
Ultimately the game isn't that engaging, the FFVII setting is wasted
Bland gameplay, sluggish controls. Neither fantastic or terrible
An immensely repetitive shooter
Making the game fun to play slipped to a low priority along the way

Hey... what happened to the walkthroughs?

The Elderly said...

lol

your dad played a small part.....

gnome said...

Figures...

Still, he was only aiming at the walkthroughs... He likes hunting them down when not playing Civ.

The Elderly said...

(covers his walkthroughs with a sheet) okay give me the all clear when he's gone....... he likes civ does he.... figures he has a regal bearing and an awfully big shotgun...

gnome said...

LOL

He's off to play Civ. Bring forth the walkthroughs...

The Elderly said...

the elderly unveils his walkthroughs and puts them on display again. Special offer on the Oblivion one and who'd a guessed the jaws unleashed one has a regular market,

here i'll wrap one up for you..... free of charge.... you will warn me when your dads back again though won't you.....

gnome said...

But of course...

:)

(or not? who knows? next... LOST. Models on a rock)

The Elderly said...

okay racing queen time then, stand by......... wait if i post racing queens your mum won't come over with her frying pan will she?

gnome said...

Of course not... She's never been on the Internet you know...

The Elderly said...

Okay racing queen post in the oven........

The Elderly said...

what never? why? or is that too obvious a question......

(irons racing queen outfit)

gnome said...

Never.

Because I haven't shown how to yet...

The Elderly said...

ya mean she's been asking and you haven't had the time to help your mother what brought you into to the world and looked after you till were old enought to look after yourself?

gnome said...

Apparently yes... but I will buy her a modem and teach her stuff after November...

By the way, I still can't look after myself... Blogging is the proof.

The Elderly said...

missing the logic, you've got a very well run blog over (points out the window) there.... surely if you can do that for a blog...

gnome said...

...I can do much better with the ladies, but that's not the point... (oh, and thanks for being nice again).

Point is the distinct lack of money (hence the financially failed blog idea) and the need to *still* be parent supported...

The Elderly said...

take it from me mums and dads really don't mind, but i see your point, bloggin is never going to get us there (financial independence) looks like we'll have to switch to pron......

gnome said...

Didn't actually believe it'd help, but that it would contribute something.... Anyway I'm far too old, and I've started growing an intense dislike towards the whole academic scene... Still... I could do a good waiter...

The Elderly said...

the beard might have to go...... how are you with hot plates?

gnome said...

I can take the heat!

Hor hor!

The Elderly said...

hee hee.... (takes out his priceless china collection) okay lets see how many plates you can carry....

hands two plates to Gnome, okay ready for the third?

gnome said...

yep... gimme the glasses too...

The Elderly said...

(leaves ghome balancing 8 priceless china dinner plates, heads back for the Waterford crystal cut glass wine glasses......... piles them in Gnomes oustretched arms (a fly enters the room)

bzzzz

gnome said...

Is the camera on? We'll have to publish it @ YouTube.

Look, I'm tap-dancing too...

Priceless you said?

The Elderly said...

Cameras rolling.......... makes me want to get a credit card....... (elderly applauses) well it proves one thing... your too good to be a waiter......

gnome said...

It could be a waiting show thingy... For the tips...

The Elderly said...

tips..... thats a very good point! often worth more than the jobs wages,

gnome said...

Right!

Goodnight...

:)
