What games have solid stories but suffer from craptastic gameplay?

Erik, Joey, Alex & Mikeby Erik, Joey, Alex & Mike


Welcome to Episode #86 of Next Gen News with your hosts Erik Norris, Joey Davidson, Mike White and Alex Keen. On this week’s show we’re talking about games with awesome stories to tell that are unfortunately bogged down by crappy gameplay. Think of this show as the inverse of what we talked about last week.

And what’s the reasoning for this topic, you might ask? Well, Joey is not a fan of Uncharted 3’s gameplay at all. Gasp! So we’re using Uncharted 3 as a springboard to discuss other games that fall into this category. Listen in for our thoughts on Assassin’s Creed, Brutal Legend, Fable III, Splinter Cell and more!

[Editor's Note]: Sorry for the quasi-crappy sound quality this week. We have our best tech monkeys on the case to iron out the problem for next week's show.
