Age of Empires: Mythologies (DS)

Hit a wall. First six missions of campaign were trivially easy, but I can’t work out how the heck I’m meant to do the seventh. The enemy just throws millions of units at me and I can’t survive to build up any forces. Oof.

Going to play a few Skirmishes to try and get better before trying again.

Age of Empires: Mythologies (DS)

Got sent a copy of this to review for another site, so probably shouldn’t talk about it too much.

But I will say that after spending two or three hours doing the first five or six missions, it seems decent and there’s an awful lot of game for your money. Going to be tough to review, simply because it’s so huge.

Far Cry 2 (360)

With Call of Duty 4 down, I picked this up again and spent half an hour or so getting used to the game again. Found some diamonds, unlocked a couple of safe houses, did a mission for the guy in the gun shop.

Not without irritations – saving anywhere and fast travel options would be lovely – but the gun play is excellent, which is the important thing, I feel.
