Game Review on Jul 16th, 2015

Overall its a satisfying conclusion to the trilogy (or quadrilogy).

Many of the things that i liked and disliked from Crysis 2 are here.
The visual effects are annoying. Rarely would i ever say the screen was clean and neat. The FOV is not so great.
Its less linear than Crysis 2.

I like the sound effects. But dislike that i still cant change the suit voice to female.

Hoping for a Crysis 4 in the future. Hopefully the story will be independant of this one.

Halo 2

2 protagonists (you can play the Arbiter who is actually more interesting than Master Chief and seems to do more in the campaign than Chief)

Dual-wielding guns. Something that should be an option in every first-person shooter.

FOV is 2 small (can be fixed by editing a few HEX files)
Gun models are 2 big. Especially when dual-wielding, i can barely see a thing other than two giant guns in my face.

2 many instant deaths. Gets very frustrating.

Twice the weapon and vehicle options than Halo CE.
Twice the enemy variety.

Would have been twice as better with mods.

Not a bad game, but i wouldnt call it great.

The chainsawgun is fun and satisfying. Rarely got to actually use the chainsaw.
The other guns were pretty much useless. Except for the sniper-rifle. And the hammer of dawn which is a heat laser coming down from the sky from a satellite, but you can only use it in specific locations.

I dislike that you have to stop to pick up ammo on the ground. I dislike that your character goes into walking mode whenever speaking on his ear-radio. Ruins the pacing.

The characters at first felt very stereotypical, but they grew on me. And i started to like them.

Being able to give your team commands is completely useless. And they never actually cover you.

There are 4 of you in total, but there is always a new reason to split up so its usually just 2 of you.

There isnt much of a variety in enemies. Nothing special about the story.

The reload mechanic is fun.

Some stages are very atmospheric.

7/10

Game Review on May 30th, 2015

There are some changes compared to the first games (Crysis and Warhead) that i dislike:

-I dislike how max strength and speed are now automatic instead of manual. But i got used to it.
-I dislike how they mad the suit a bit too self-aware. And it holds your hands too much. Never shuts up.
-I dislike that you cant change the suit's voice to female.
-I dislike the stupid invisible walls.


Now for what i like:
+I was disappointed to see Nomad gone (see comic for details). Alcatraz is cool though. A cool silent protagonist.
+Story is good. Characters are memorable. I didnt find any of them unlikable, even the villains.
+You eventually get your hands on some cool weapons. They are customizable, but i didnt find myself customizing as much as i did in the previous games.


There are alot of epic cinematics, aswell as some QTEs, but only a tiny bit.
The game doesnt need that to be epic. It just needs kickass music while you're kicking ***, which is what the first games did.

The FOV is not great (can be edited in autoexec.cfg)
There is also this weird annoying filter/motionblur thing that i just dont get.

The game doesnt have any "improvements" compared to the first game that i can think of.
But despite certain "dumbing down" aka "simplifying" it is still fun.
Out of the many "modern military shooters" this one i'd actually recommend.

Fun gameplay. Good pacing.
Weapon variety, enemy variety and level variety.
Challenging and satisfying.

I dont bother with the story, its just there to provide context, can just be ignored.

2 complaints:
1) Collecting the souls that enemies drop can get tedious. You need to stop and wait for the souls to actually appear.
2) Demon mode can get wasted.

Game Review on Feb 16th, 2015

Some main characters are interesting.
Some are annoying. Which is a problem since you cant skip cutscenes.
The character Badrah is under used.

Gameplay is good. Performance is bad.
Variety in the endings (definitely better than FarCry3's ending)
Alot of side activities (although they do repeat)

There isnt much of a soundtrack. No real good music playing on the radio while driving. However certain missions have some kick-*** soundtrack that really gets you excited.

Cool features like being able to auto-drive.
The wing-suit. Parachute.
The Buzzer (Mini Chopper)
Riding elephants.
Rope climbing.
And other standard vehicles.
Alot of weapons.

Overall a satisfying game.

Halo: Combat Evolved

Game Review on Jan 27th, 2015

Halo Combat Evolved is a good game. But its not amazing.

2 gun limit. Bullet-sponge enemies. A lack of variation in the enemies. The variety of weapons are a bit interesting but is held back by the fact that you can only carry 2 at a time.

And sometimes the shooting gets tedious. And tiresome.

Mister Chef and Cortana are good and likable.
Cortana's voice acting is very good.

Halo "Custom Edition" is where the fun is at. A bunch of maps to download. The modding community has really kept this game alive.

+Good story
+Good characters
+Good gameplay

-Slow and tedious combat
-Areas that go on for way too long
-Badly paced
-Unfair scripted events
-Crappy monetary/shop system
-Lame loot and a lack of interesting and varying weapons
-Limited romance option
-Bugs and glitches
-Unreliable camera controls

Those 3 positives are what kept me coming back to this game but eventually the negatives were too much for me to take. The best way I could play this game was by taking breaks every once in a while because the game is exhausting.
Some areas go on for so long that I have to turn some music on to listen to while I do it because it never ends.
Combat is not satisfying unless I use a mage since the mage has so many useful spells. And the lame loot you get from slain enemies don’t make up for it.
The rogue is also fun. Can turn invisible to scout out some areas. But because the game is scripted sometimes the invisibility becomes pointless. The game detects you even if the enemies don’t.
The game is not open world. Instead you fast travel from area to area with some random encounters in-between.
I do prefer it to its two sequels though.

(I am playing Torchlight 2. I don’t know the story, it doesn’t have amazing characters. But it is very satisfying to kill enemies and loot them. Cool weapons and items. Its colorful. Fast paced. And has some sweet mods)

Very fun and satisfying.

However it doesnt feel like you are stomping around in a giant mech. Buildings are not destructible. The city is empty, no screaming citizens yelling "Godzilla!!"

Weapons feel good. Good story and characters. And a sarcastic and likable main character.

Id love a sequel or a remake. Or atleast another game like it.

Main problem with this game are the instant kills. But once you get a proper feel for the game it becomes less of a problem.
