Honest Gamer's Review
Reviewed in the United States on January 29, 2016
I'm reviewing what I bought only. Not the future of the system's potential. Not banging on the battle drum of which console is going to win this gen's favor, which is like coke and pepsi if you ask me.
I'm very happy with my purchase of this PS4 Bundle. I've been saving up for 2 years. I was a bit upset to see the price jump from $350 to $400 when I finally went to buy it, but I can't blame them. You get 5 games with this:
N64 Pod Racer
PS2 Space Fighter
PS2 Bubba Fett story
Super Nintendo Star Wars
Comments on the Console itself:
-The options button is in a weird spot, it doesn't feel natural to hit it, and being that it took over the "Start" button this becomes a annoyance.
-There is a light on the controller that you can't turn off,you can dim it but not turn it off completely.
=It uses a Micro USB to charge, which feels like a flimsy, easy to bend spot, I figure it's designed well but I'm not sure why they didn't just go ahead and use a USB 3.0, it charges faster and is newer technology.
-Cant give yourself a new PSN name
+Uses the same wires as the 3, just encase you loose/break them.
+Rest Mode, which is like a Standby for you to jump back into the same moment Hrs later. uses low electricity.
Comments on the Main Game (you know the reason you bought this one):
<Offline Experience Review->
There are only 3 modes for the "Single" player:
*Training- Fly a ship around for about 4 minutes, and the only time you get to pilot in Single Player.
*Battle- Like Deathmatch but makes you collect tokens from the AiBot you just killed, first to 100 wins. It has a "Hero" selection where you get to play as an OP "Cameo" Character that doesn't let you go into 1st person mode because they had to pay those copyright fees and by golly are going to get the most of it.
*Survival-The best mode IMO, last man alive feel. Hold out for 15 waves, occasional AT-ST that makes you feel pretty vulnerable, and the only solo replay value I see.
+Graphics+really well done, the motions are fluid and look real, along with the textures and fabric, Faces are always odd but the first look at whats to come from Next Gen.
-Install-After the 20GB download you have/get to play as Invulnerable Vader and take out "Rebel Scum" as the game installs. Neat feature but after about 30 mins I got bored, then when it hit the HR mark at 36% I got frustrated and found myself <SearchEngine>ing it to see some people got stuck in this purgatory for about 4hrs. Do yourself a favor and PUT YOUR SYSTEM IN REST MODE AS IT INSTALLS and it will shoot by in about 15 mins (don't quote me on that but it's way less) if nothing else then I hope you read that.
-TheRocketLauncher- I'm sorry I mean "Torpedo", won't let you fire at anything other than Vehicles.The price you pay but gets you through survival.
-Endor'sBrush- I wish you could hide in it and sniper off but instead you get a auto target plastered on your head like you are wearing a LightTower for a hat.
All in all System **** (4 Stars)
Game *** (3 Stars)
Maybe If I could spend the $15/month to get online I would see more value, but for that price I'll just get GameFly with New Games starting at $60 just to be like this and 1886.
