2.0 out of 5 stars Disappointing, 1 July 2011
By 
This review is from: Hunted: The Demon's Forge (Xbox 360) (Video Game)
The game was well put together; interesting storyline from the offset but still a button masher of a game. Not enough RPG to satisfy that aspect of the gameplay and a 'business as usual' approach to the combat mechanics. I've come to the conclusion that third-person sword and sorcery games are not my thing.

I have given some thought at how the melee mechanics can be improved but I strongly suspect that the market for these games love the button mashing hack and slash mechanics.

Anyway if button mashing hack and slash is what you are after then not a bad game. I have seen much worse. What I would dearly like to see is some one to come up with the light-wieght RPG approach of Mass Effect with its emphasis on character personalisation and character interaction and mix it with something like Operation Flashpoint's approach to real world physics and gameplay mechanics. But that is not going to happen - I suspect that there is simply not the market for it.

that's actually a genius idea you had. gz. But true, it's hard to see it happen
