Good playstation planning means you finish one game in time to start a new ;)

I've finally got round to completing Jak3, I haven't quite hit the 100% completion mark, but my 99% isn't a bad effort, and there's only so much "orb hunting" you can do before you get bored ! I've updated my personal playstation2 review section, and for those that have never got into the jak and daxter series I'd suggest you get started, you're missing out on hours of entertainment !

I've also got a new game Burnout 4 (Revenge). I'll follow my usual routine of saving the review until I complete (or get bored) , but I have to say, I've had the game on for 30mins and It rocks !!!!!! I've played burnout 2/3 before, so I already knew roughly what to do. The big different in Revenge is that you can hit traffic going in the same direction (in the past this was a wipe out) and you can use this traffic as a weapon - yep sod trying to win fair & square, hit a van hard from behind and it'll catapult forward, if your aim is good you'll hit your opponent and take the lead !
From first glance there is a variation on the race, i.e. do the tracks backwards, or getting quickest lap times, the only type that leave me cold is the launch your car into a cross-road for points - it sounds good on paper but it's actually quite boring to play - especially compared to the high adrenaline races !

If you have burnout 3, you'll enjoy burnout 4 !

rgds,

Nick
