When I was looking for a kdrama to watch,
I saw signal on mydramalist which had a 9.2 rating score highest ranked kdrama
and also it was is either a 9 or 10 on most other places so
I had to watch this kdrama, so how was it?
well it was good but not quite carling.
The concept was fantastic really clever in my opinion the
communcation between the past and present worked very well
The first ep almost felt a movie it was very entertaining
and most cases are like an ep and a half which works great
when its a good case but then in others it felt dragged out and very repitive
ep 4 was a masterpiece great emotional ep which built up lee jang really well
It was well acted and also perfect picked cast, everyone suited their roles
well and they all gave top class performances all round
everyone showed good emotion
Park Hae Young is one dimensional character other than him suffering from
the loss of his brother what else is there who is Park Hae Young?
There was a girl who was helping him deciding on which university to go to,
she appeared in like 3 scenes then never to be seen again....
I am not one who has to have romance in series etc... but I really feel that this k-drama needed it especially with cha because she just seems to be crazy ott over her crush
It could have been a sad tragic story but waiting for that moment it never came
Later eps lagged a bit one ep almost felt like nothing happened but luckily by then
theres only 4 eps left
This could have been the best kdrama ever but a couple of things really holds it
and the writer
when I spend 16 hours watching something I want to have an ending
Also even though a season 2 is possible
In my opinion wait to least when season 2 is confirmed if not then only watch this when you have nothing to watch
For what it is and how well it does it, It's a really good game
This game & Mario games in general are games that you can play in any mood
Always relaxing and enjoyable
Ofcourse if you want an action game (or with a bit more) then you won't overly enjoy this
This game is a more slow pace easy going game
Captain Toad is so adorable,
The graphics are great and its what to be expected,
Soundtrack is great too and sets the mood for playing
Has a good amount of unique levels too including bonus ones if you have a Super Mario 3D World save
Also replay value with time trials and the Toad amiibo plus completing the secret objectives and getting all the stars
So overall its a decent package
The only real issue that I have is the camera view
It didn't bother me when playing through the first time because I was taking my time completing the levels
BUT for the speed runs it starts to become annoying where in a lot (but not all) courses require to do perfect movement straight to the star as you only have maybe 2 to 3 seconds tops to spare
so at times it can be tuff to do some of those courses and getting the best time
But overall its a great game that always have that mario style charm
My Score: 9/10
While I'm talking about sorry to go slightly off topic @Nintendo where is the captain toad amiibo mario kart 8 character and smash bros character? come on nintendo make them!
before i begin my review i want to ask
like Who is this guy? [point at cover]
wait a minute let me check on my phone here....
on wikipedia here... ah got it jack joyce
okay then on with the review
so it was meant to be the big one for the xbox one but it pissed me off
its a real shame because for me the game sounded really promising
it was a interesting concept a game + a tv show
with decisions affecting both (or at least it meant to...)
and it was from the creators of alan wake
which is among my elite favourites of games
so obliviously i was very exited...
But this game sadly has some major flaws
Biggest issue with the game is that even though it has an interesting universe
BUT mostly with weak characters
and none of them are developed properly throughout the game
Like again... ah shit forgot his name [point at cover] eh does not matter
never played such a forgettable main protagonist before...
TV Show isnt bad its quite decent and i wished i couldve spent more time with them
but the main character of the game or any other important character
in the game barely features in the tv show
its like almost 2 separate things that rarely connect with each other
What worse is that there are no conclusions or endings
to any of the characters in both and overall game and the tv show
breaks the immersion to each other with what i have mentioned
it would have been nice to have more background story on Joyce
yes i remembered his name a prologue episode could have been great
I did not care much for Joyce and honestly I cared little about the other characters too
some of the tv characters were possibly interesting but not enough time with them
to make me fully care.
enough negatives lets go over some of the positives
Its a decent 3rd person shooter with a twist with the time abilities
sometimes a mixed bag but overall i did enjoy the game play
- Pretty game despite it being only 720p
It is a technical spectacle The time based abilities are cool
but after the tutorials for each ability
although i ended up just using the same power over and over again
freezing / slowing down the enemies then shoot them
that part of the gameplay kinda feels like
a syfy edition of alan wake you know with the torch to slow down enemies
but that is the only part that they resemble
As things started to get interesting when i was really getting into
the game and enjoying it but then it bothered me...
choices are a great concept but sadly they never really grew into anything
does not affect the game or the ending in any real way
even though you can change the tv show part a bit a slight bit
but you can not change joyce's journey throughout the game in any meaningful way
then sequel baiting and a possible romance from out of nowhere
last thing f*** the final boss
words cannot explain probably one of the worst boss fights that i've ever faced
especially when i was doing well and then it crashed twice
then i had to try multiple times dying from frustration
Overall great concept great universe and reasonably good game play it was enjoyable
Graphics are absolutely incredible, the physics were simply amazing
technical wise its outstanding but other than that its a bit of a let down
and leaves me wanting to play alan wake more
do not mean to say alan wake multiple times
but this feels like a incomplete game and a tv show that got cancelled mid season
it simply left me wanting more.
I think the k2 is a fantastic kdrama very under rated
Although for me it did not have the greatest of starts
especially the first 2 episodes
It was like the drama was trying to be cool
with some beautiful scenery, really cool fights scenes and a sexy scene etc...
but without providing any emotional context initially which made it all meaningless
it didnt grab me at and it was a bit boring to be honest
Im glad that I did not drop it because I was pretty close to doing so
After when I learnt and understood Kim Je-ha & Go An-na character their motivation
and the story behind them
the drama then suddenly became more enjoyable because most scenes fights or situations
then meant something to me because I felt for them
even though episode 3 was not great but it showed promise then from episode 4
i started to enjoy the drama and then I really got into it.
So lets go over some of things that I really liked
The acting is probably the best thing in the drama it was top notch
everyone done a fantastic job
Soundtrack was very solid and I really liked the instrumentals
it added an extra emph to each situation very well
I really liked in the drama that there were two revenges stories going on
it was intersting once I knew what was what liked mentioned before.
go anna appreciated kim je ha more when she saw him suffering a nightmare
while he was sleeping in one of the episodes it made her feel like shes not the only one
Now some minor issues that the drama had maybe was
1st go anna's sudden personality change
from being scared, seemingly uncapable of anything and a shut in
to a very capable chatty and clever woman
they didnt build up to Kim Je-ha & Go An-na relationship that much
even though their chemistry was really
good, their scenes were cute and enjoyable and they looked like a couple.
in my opinion it maybe needed more time but then also they were both suffering
and found comfort together so it is understanable
And they didnt show enough of Jang Se-joon's humanity like they did with Choi Yoo-jin
maybe there Jang Se-joon only
im not saying i wished that there were loads of scenes
but one here and there
it then brings
The drama had a really strong finish it kept up the quality of the fight scenes
it had really high stakes, intense
So my score for the k2 is a 9/10
Now if you excuse me Im going to subway and get something to eat
Actually I am back because I want to talk about so spoilers
so if you want to stop here then do that right now
your still watching? okay then
anna did not need to go to 9
then anna's father dying and her mothers name never cleared
in part i wouldve understood if her father liked saved her
life by taking a bullet or something else like that
but he did not have to die, it was complete suicide
story was simply epic, characters were good with great chemistry.
some pretty awesome fight scenes here and there
and a very nice memorable soundtrack aswell
pacing was pretty good but at times i felt they could only focus on one thing
at a time and didnt really blend things in here and there.
like past but only the past romance then only the romance
mission then only mission etc....
Only other thing is even though it was not really bad
the end game was kinda lackluster,
I felt maybe they maybe have played it too safe and it didnt end as high
as the drama felt throughout the series
Which was disappointing because this drama was near perfect
of being Legendary but regardless of a few minor things it still is legendary.
My Score: 10/10
I almost gave it a 9 or 9.5 because of the two minor issues I said
but its still for 100% sure its legendary although not the best legendary
everything else was fantastic
