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
-Slow and tedious combat
-Areas that go on for way too long
-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 mage 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)

Minus the DLC i rate this game a 6.
With the DLCs Betrayal of Jimmy, Jimmy's Vendetta and Joe's Adventures i give it a 7 or 7.5
Great voice acting.
Hand to hand combat is fun.
The game is set in an interesting time period 1940-50, alot of potential.
But the game is also boring.
Way too much driving sections. Not much interesting to listen to on the radio, would have made the driving more fun. Driving feels stiff sometimes.
Weapons are good but sometimes i cant feel the impact of my bullets on an enemy.
The missions are not that exciting or memorable except for the last mission.
The missions are very simple, like day to day activities.
And you cant explore the world out of mission, nothing to do.
However i still think its a pretty good game with alot of potential but just didnt deliver it.

A pretty good game. You play as Riddick as he tries to escape a prison.
The stealth is the best part of this game, when it works.
Riddick can see in the dark so you must shoot out the lights and use his night vision. However often even when its pitch black enemies will still see you and just riddle you with bullets.
And some lights are covered in bullet proof glass for some reason so there are some you cant shoot out.
Worst part is the shooting. Guns act weird. When too close to a wall, object or enemy the gun disappears and you cant shoot.
At some points you use mechs also fun.
Hand to hand combat also good when it works.
The voice acting is also very good.

I had more fun playing Call of Duty 1 and 2. The weapons and combat were more fun. I also felt more freedom, i didnt feel forced to follow my squad, and my squad didnt take all the kills i these tight areas, there was enough to go around with the open space. If felt good.
It was hard to connect with the characters, especially the main character. The only people i remember are Soap and Gaz.
I dont like controlling multiple characters in one campaign.
I would have preferred 2 full campaigns, one where you only control Soap and one where you only control Paul. No switching back and forth.
Gameplay is fine. This is the only time that i was OK with the 2 gun limit. However the gameplay doesnt vary much, mostly shooting, and a little bit of areal assault, and a sniper mission.
Linear. You can jump over somethings but then the game prevents you from jumping over other things.
I did like how smooth it plays.
I found the game to be too short though, im talking singleplayer campaign.
Overall a good game.

I heard alot of negative reviews for this game.
I understood that the game might be disappointing seeing its long production time, but it cant be that bad.
So i played the game and its not bad.
Now ive played DukeNukem 3D. Its a very good game. And im not a Duke fan and i havent been waiting forever for this game. So maybe unlike many other i did not have super high expectations.
Here are the bads:
-I dont like 2 gun limit. I want to be able to hold a pistol, shotgun, machine gun, rpg and more at the same time. (However with THE DOCTOR WHO CLONED ME DLC the limit is 4 which is great)
-Regenerating health. Not good for a Duke game.
-The graphics are not bad but some times there was this weird flickering of the screen.
-The freeze ray is useless.
-Bosses can only be killed with explosive weapons (rpg). Not even the shotgun helps.
-Duke's one-liners are kinda funny sometimes.
-You get funny references to other games like HalfLife 2, Dead Space, Mario, etc
-Cool weapons from Duke 3D, especially my favorite the Shotgun.
-Health bar is an "Ego" bar, kinda funny.
-Able to boost Egobar by interacting with certain things
-Changes in the gameplay: shooting, driving, swimming, shrinking,
Duke Forever is a pretty good game. Just relax and enjoy it. And laugh every now and again.
+ THE DOCTOR WHO CLONED ME DLC
A short and sweet and funny dlc.
And visiting the Burning Bush was fun, wish there was more to do there though.

One of the first PC games i played. A fun game. Wish the story was deeper.
You're stuck in the same town getting quests from the same people.
But still fun.

Its actually not that bad of a game.
Im not an Alien fan, and i have not been waiting for this game. So i didnt have high hopes, and i wasnt disappointed.
But I had fun playing.
The AI is bad, the main characters are un-interesting, graphics are irrelevant to me so no comment on that.
Fighting humans suck. But i did enjoy killing Xenos. And i did like the weapons. Weapons can be customized, but the customization is limited. The crosshair on the Pulse-riffles were too wobbly.
There is obviously potential here. Needs more Aliens. And the game needs to put you alone more.

Compared to Bioshock 1 and 2, Infinite isnt that great in my opinion.
Booker and Elizabeth are great characters,as are Robert/Rosalind Lutece.
But i found the story not that exiting.
The enemies are not as good as the enemies in 1 and 2. Nothing as interesting as the splicers and their interesting chatter, no Big Daddy, no little sisters.
Comstock isnt as good as Andrew Ryan or Fontaine.
Another problem i had with Infinite was all those infinite dimensions.
Also i hate all those false choices. The game gives you choices that arent choices.
Also the ending of Infinite wasnt all that great.
