Painkiller

Game review

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.

Far Cry 4

Game review

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

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.

Dragon Age: Origins

Game review

+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)

Shogo: Mobile Armor Division

Game review

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.

Bulletstorm

Game review

In terms of gameplay its pretty cool: the kick, the whip, the slide. Aswell as some other things.
The gun fights can get pretty wild. Getting drunk is cool, but they could have made it a little more badass.
The ending isnt bad, but also not great.
Im also not a fan of regenerating health in FPSs.

Brutal Doom

Mod review

The reason I like this mod so much is because it does what i’ve been wishing more modern FPSs would do.

Which is, to take what was good about old school FPSs and simply improve on where improvements need to be made.

Improved gameplay: ability to kick and jump.
Better weapons: the addition of the assault rifle, and giving the guns more impact.
Better sound: satisfying sound effect.

A good mod.

Doom III

Game review

Atmosphere, Pacing, Sound design and Gameplay are what make this game so great.

A nice survival-horror FPS. With a great plot. An interesting variety of enemies to fight, and an interesting variety of weapons to fight them with.

Sound design is unique. The weapons sound like toys sometimes but i leaned to actually appreciate the sound effects.

Good gameplay. The kind of gameplay i like in a first person shooter. No regenerating health. The weapons feel different. No buttons to get into cover. Health packs and power ups to pickup. This keeps the game going and doesnt slow it down.

This game is one of the bests.

Dark Messiah of Might and Magic

Game review

A fun first-person RPG.

The story is not bad or great at first, but about half way when the mystery of what you are is revealed it gets interesting.

The combat is pretty fun. Kicking enemies off cliffs, into fire, on wall spikes that are conveniently placed everywhere. And I mean everywhere.

Some of the magical weapons are really cool to use. The skill points tree was also good.

The characters needed to be developed more.

I like how some quests were optional. Even boss fights were optional. The game doesn’t really lock you in a room and force you to fight a boss.

The endings are not bad, the problem is you just get a short cut scene, I wanted an actual epilogue to see the consequences of the choices I made throughout the game.
