I am not really into racing games, so I don't have one.

But I did waste eons of time trying to get a perfect score on the horse shooting race track in Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time. :P

Isn't that the perfect job for your iPad?
Yes it is. I did end up using my iPhone at the end, instead of quitting the game repeatedly.

Finished up Broken Sword 5. Still the most gorgeous looking adventure game I've ever played! Great animations, very nice voice acting, good dialog writing. Unfortunately I do think the plot was a bit too uninteresting, especially in the first part, and the ending was just too over the top.. Also, the first half of the game dragged on way too long, and lacked interesting and complex puzzles. Fortunately the second part had some more interesting and complicated puzzles, and the story was more interesting I think. But I do feel that the game needed more puzzles to work out, and most of those that were there were either too easy or way too hard.

I think the most annoying thing about the game was that while the animations were really good, you always had to wait for characters to finish their animations, before you could interact with stuff. This made the game go quite slowly, which I could have been without. For a game where you need to interact with many things, and try out MANY combinations, this became a huge time waster. But otherwise I didn't encounter no bugs. I should mention that you can't tab out of the game, so that was also pretty annoying for when you actually did become stuck, since you had to quit in order to look up a walkthrough. :P

That being said, I did enjoy it, but I do feel it could have been a bit better. If there ever is a Broken Sword 6 I will play it for sure though, because I really like the main characters, and as said, it looked *amazing*. In the end, 3/5 from me.

Next up, a real classic I never got around to finish back when I was a kid: Syndicate!
