Great:
Playing BF3 with one or more friends. The gameplay of the Battlefield franchise has always been awesome.
The return of jets.

Okay:
Playing BF3 with publics and no friends. Can get boring or frustrating because of the lack of teamwork, which is (almost) a must in this game.
The co-op missions are enjoyable, but they're short, kind of uninspired and there are only six of them.

Meh:
The singleplayer component. I would rather play multiplayer against bots than play a generic singleplayer 'story' seen in most modern day shooters. It feels too much like the singleplayer of Call of Duty, to name a well-known example.
The browser-based server list. Being forced to install Origin in order to play the game is one thing, but have a brower-based server list made me angry. Every time you join a different server the game needs to restart, which is annoying. So is the fact that I need to keep my internetbrowser running in the background, which is a waste of resources (RAM).
Long loading times. Sometimes I have to wait 3-5 minutes before a new level is done loading. I'm not sure if it has to do with my NVIDIA graphics card, but I've heard ATI/AMD cards generally have faster loading times.

I don't know what makes this game so great, because the gameplay itself actually isn't very innovative or original. The artstyle, music, sounds and voice acting create a great atmosphere though, one of the greatest I have experienced so far. Definitely one of my favorites of 2011.

As a huge TES fan I was really looking forward to this game and in terms of freedom of exploration and action-related gameplay it didn't disappoint.

Mod Review on Oct 21st, 2011

While the gameplay itself isn't very innovative, interesting or challenging, the story and atmosphere make up for that. There are some nice 'easter eggs' as well as voice acting. The quality of the voice acting is.. variable. Some voices are done very well, others are less convincing. It still beats text-only though.

I could talk some more about it, but I think I'd have to include spoilers then, which I dislike. This mod isn't your average shooter, you should just give it a try and experience it yourself if you have the chance. Overall it feels like a polished, pretty high-quality mod. I'm looking forward to a/the sequel!

Portal 2

And here is another copy-paste of my Steam recommendation. I really should take the time to write decent reviews and replace these copy-pastes.

"Very enjoyable sequel. Although I've encountered a 'game breaking' bug (which was gone after restarting the game) the game feels very polished and of a high quality. The majority of the levels isn't too hard in singleplayer, but there are some hard levels in co-op, which by the way is a definite must play! Nothing more fun than thinking with portals x 2."

Game Review on Jul 16th, 2011

Copy-paste from my Steam recommendation because I'm not sure how to write a decent review of this game:

"Very atmospheric horror game with puzzle elements. If you like a good scare you should try this game. Be sure to play this game at night with your lights off for just that little extra. I enjoyed almost every minute of this game."

One of the best RTS games I have played. It's balanced very well and you generally need a really good strategy and timing to win a (multiplayer) game. The singleplayer was also one of the best RTS campaign's I have played so far, because it was backed up with some interaction with NPC's and buying unlocks in between battles.

Ugh, I'm too tired to write any more (and I'm not that good at writing 'reviews' anyway), but really, if you like RTS games this is probably a must buy!
