The beginning of June had these two games available to try. The Crew 2 was a closed beta, but Ubisoft have allowed things to be shared from it. I was always going to be trying this one if I could. As for Mario Tennis Aces, I was unsure about trying this one at first, but since it was a time-limited demo, it couldn’t hurt to try it out.
The Crew 2 has a massive open world, allowing a wide range of exploration. There’s a wide array of places to go, whether soaring over the desert in a plane or cutting through a forest in a boat. And let’s not forget the cars. Within the beta there’s quite a number of them, and a range of events to be taking part in.
Today has been all about one certain game, that I'm surprised no-one has dubbed the day Splatterday. The Splatoon Global Testfire announced in Thursday's Direct has finally come to an end. And it has greatly made me look forward to the game even more. In fact, I was so interested in the game, I set a little something up.
With no capture card available, I had to pull out my camera and get it on the tripod, but I recorded footage of five matches. Part One and Part Two of the Splatoon demo show off the four primary weapon types, as well as a look at the sub and special weapons, two of the maps available to play on, as well as gameplay in general.
Now, I'm fairly new to the Battlefield series, but I can certainly see the differences between the main series and Hardline - a cops and robbers spin-off. We have the way you earn equipment, the equipment itself, the vehicles, and even the opposing factions.
Now, since this game is in beta form, I won't be doing a full review. But this post is to give an insight into just what the beta holds, and how that reflects the final game.
First off is the Battlefield (and perhaps most other team-based shooter) staple mode - Conquest. This mode plays much the same as previous games. Each team has a base, and between both are five command posts which are contested over.
Kills knock off tickets from the opposing faction, as does owning the most command posts. The winning team is the one which can reduce the opposing team's tickets to zero.
