Game Review on Jan 26th, 2015

+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.

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.

Mod Review on Sep 2nd, 2014

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.

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.

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.

SWAT 4
8 Review

Game Review on Jan 23rd, 2014

SWAT 4 is a pretty good tactical FPS.
However its not at its full potential, this game could actually be better.

Some stages I found not that fun.
And some stages like the serial kidnapper in his mom’s basement, and the cult stage were very good, creepy and fun.

My team AI can be pretty stupid at times.

And the game is too harsh when it comes to using deadly force. Especially when there are 10 enemies and you gotta constantly shout "get down".

The weapon varieties are not very interesting.
I know its out of place, but i would have liked the option to use an AK-47.

It has only 13 career missions. I think if this game was still getting support it could be better. Like adding more career missions.

The game doesn’t have the right resolution for my screen so there are minor bugs. Would be good if some kind of patch was released to fix the minor issues I had.

I hear talking of people wanting this game to come to STEAM.
And if that happens maybe it will be re-released with some fixes.

Far Cry

Game Review on Dec 26th, 2013

-FarCry is a great open world FPS.

-Good characters, and good story.

-Good gameplay.
Stealth is good when it works. But it seems to be more helpful to the enemies rather than to the player since their sight and aim are amazing. They can see you from great distances even when you're prone. And its hard to see them even when they are running around exposed.
And they outnumber you by a lot; when you think you cleared them out more pop out.
You can throw rock to distract them. Its good when it works.

-You can drive 4X4s and boats, even hang gliders. And use the guns mounted on them.

-You can carry 4 weapons at once. And there are different weapons to choose from. Although the variety isn’t that great.
You can carry a variety of grenades, including gas bombs.

-Would be nice if the game allowed you to carry atleast one health pack with you.

-Sprint doesn’t help much. You cant sprint for long and you cant sprint fast.

-No manual save only auto save, which is good for a challenge. You are able to reload any save file since they each get their own slot.
Unfortunately the game doesn’t always save at the time you want it to.

Overall a great game.

Portal 2

Game Review on Dec 21st, 2013

Portal 2 is a great sequel.

Story is still great and got expended on from the first game. Uncovering more of the mystery of what happened in this place. A little creepy and so thrilling.

Voice acting is terrific. A fun and funny game.

The only way this game could have been better is if the Gman actually showed up in the end.

Game Review on Nov 11th, 2013

A horror game done right.

You play an investigator hunting down a serial killer who kills serial killers. While at the same time running from the police who suspect you of murder.

You use various tools, as well as some psychic visions, to examine clues and evidence.
Your friend Rosa, a forensics at HQ, whom you are in contact with throughout the game analyses all the clues sent to her and helps you.

Game focuses on melee.
Combat is well done. You need to block, move forward and back and time your attacks. Certain melee weapons have secondary uses to break doors or locks (fire axe, sledge hammer, crowbar)

You may also find ranged weapons with limited ammo in them. Shotguns and pistols.
Unfortunately you may find sub-machine guns occasionally. And i wish the game did not have them. But they are rare, plus the ammo is limited.

Checkpoints are position perfectly. The game also has a quick save feature which i dont use since checkpoints are well positioned.

8/10
