View topic - Any one else excited??
I still remember when I played it (Several times.) on the Playstation Monthly demo disk and it was the first game my dad did not fall asleep to. The orchestrated music and the graphics which back in the day were the best for the amount of stuff going on and were so good in fact that you did not even need CGI cut scenes so it kept you in the game better. The story, the weapons, the crazy boss characters... before they became too crazy (Like in Mega Man series.) and every thing else just came together into a great game. Although the game was not 1st person, I loved the fact that you could look around and see things from that perspective and it really helped compared to other games that have the same mechanic.
Hitting the wall with your knuckles to grab the guards attention or having to run because a curious guard had noticed your foot prints in the snow. And because you ran, a security camera saw you and they chased you down. And nothing more satisfying than sneaking up to an unsuspecting soldier, grab him around the neck and choke him a few times to knock him out and then drag him a few feet for him to struggle some more and you do it again until you are out of sight and then snap his neck. Or to launch him with a throw over a railing.
And being able to play through the game and again and again and have unlimited weapons and ammo among other things was also a real treat... and nothing like being a bad ass and smoking a cigarette to see the infrared trip wires!
Part two was ok, but it was weird and I did not really get it on some points of the story. Part three however, now that was also good with great story and visuals and a lot more things to do... plus you can see how the characters came to being for part one, since part three was actually a prequel, where as part two was a sequal... of sorts...
In fact the only other game to my knowledge like that was Tenchu: Stealth Assassins. That was a great game too, not as polished... but if you like Ninjas and ancient Japan... nothing better! On the PS1 anyway...
