Game Review on Jul 27th, 2013

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 characters.
Great voice acting.
Looks beautiful.
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.

The Chronicles of Riddick: Escape from Butcher Bay
7 Review

Game Review on Jul 17th, 2013

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.

Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare

Game Review on Jul 3rd, 2013

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.

Duke Nukem Forever
7 Review

Game Review on May 23rd, 2013

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.

Good:
-Duke's one-liners are kinda funny sometimes.
-You get funny references to other games like HalfLife 2, Dead Space, Mario, etc
-Fan service
-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
-Boss battles.
-Changes in the gameplay: shooting, driving, swimming, shrinking,

Conclusion:
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.

Metro: Last Light

Game Review on May 23rd, 2013 - 3 people don't

Good:
Interesting story. Really sucks you in.
Good conversations.
Good characters.

Bad:
I can barely see anything.
In dark areas when i turn on the flash light i cant even tell if its on. I have to turn it on and off just to be sure.
Even on the surface its hard to see. My field of view feels too small.
Melee attacks feel useless, except for stealth kills. Id attack an enemy from close by and keep missing.
It doesnt feel like my bullets or melee attacks connect with the monsters.
Linear. The game doesnt encourage exploration that much. Illustrated by you having limited oxygen when on the surface.

Other:
There are moral choices to make but i didnt find that many.
There are different factions, unfortunately you cant chose which you want to be a part of.

I dont like the gameplay that much.
But the story is very good.

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.

Aliens: Colonial Marines

Game Review on Apr 25th, 2013 - 1 person agrees 2 people don't

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.

Bioshock Infinite

Game Review on Apr 21st, 2013 - 1 person doesn't

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.
