Speared Destiny

I was away last week at a conference, but I managed to get a tiny bit of gaming done in the evenings. I managed to make enough progress with Spear of Destiny that I was able to finish it off tonight. There's really not much more to say about it. It's Wolfenstein, just more of the same. It's one long campaign rather than short episodes, but that doesn't make any functional difference. A couple of new enemies are introduced on the final level - when you get transported to hell - but other than that it's mostly just shooting the same people with the same weapons. I played on easy difficulty because I'm a wimp, but I still died quite a few times. The level design didn't seem quite as tortuous as some of the mazes in the first game, but the enemy placement was better thought out with a lot more guys sneaking up behind you and surprising you. I'm very glad it's over, though. It definitely started to get a bit much towards the end. Next up is a more modern game, Return to Castle Wolfenstein. I've already tinkered with it a bit and it's a breath of fresh air graphically. Still seems really difficult, though...I'm rubbish at FPS games!

I've done the first 'world' in The Lost Vikings and even that was a bit of a slog. It's slow going, unforgiving and extremely hard. I'm not sure if I'm going to finish this one, but I'll give it a bit more of a go.
