Challenging, frustrating, and insanely evil...Yet probably one of the best games I've played in a long time. It will kill you over and over again, but without leaving you with the feeling of lacking in accomplishment that most repetative deaths do. My only complaint is the controls can either be too sensative, or not enough.
Otherwise the game is fun and simple, the way games used to be. I generally dispise gravity runner type games, but the scenery, simple yet fun plot, combine well with the challenging puzzles with excellent music and graphical presentation.
A must buy!
Portal 2 is a truly remarkable game that makes changes on Portal, but both are excellent and have a unique identity. With more testing elements than its prequel it provides a huge variety of puzzling, bizarre and thrilling tests. Also, it is a huge world where the player is taken to many locations. Each time I though the game was going to end (and I hoped it wouldn't) I would be surprised with another totally new and unexpected chapter. At the end, I couldn't think of anything that they could have done better. It's one of a kind.
Unbelievably fun little game that never stops challenging you, but does an excellent job of not causing frustration.
The audio fits, the style and visuals are crisp, the colors are captivating and pleasing, and the gameplay is simple and intuative.
I can and have played this games for hours letting time simply slip away and would recommend it to any and everyone.
Awesome artwork, gameplay. Quick to pick up, the puzzles are clever, fun, and really cool in exactly how they tie in the background with the on screen objects.
Sound/audio isn't mind blowing, but it fits the game rather well.
Game does an excellent job of alerting you to your character's capabilities without blatently giving away puzzles.
Fun, unique, and captivating.
This mod is really a well done one. That said from one of the partners of Danman games 7 Deadly Sins. I for one love a race that is overpowered once full researched. As for my favorite race the Norlamins are amazing. I have a strong love or races that use their brains and have a lot of research the Norlamins are very similar the the Atlantians of 7DS whom I've put around 100 man hours into editing the textures of all of there ships and spacial structures, but the one thing that I did notice is that if the SUPER DREADNOUGHTS are to be the ultimate weapons of the race after lvl 6 they should be able to do more damage. I did notice that after full upgrade of research the capital ships still had more damage output than that of the dreadnoughts. Also the planet bombardment of only 100... that seams a bit low especially for a super weapon/fleet destroyer. I personally would recommend editing the BuffDreadnoughttoStarbase_(race) files where it says buffEntityModifierType "ArmorAsDamageTarget" to more like 25 or so instead of just 10. Just some ideas for the Dreadnought. Please let me know what you think of this idea.
Basically, big graphic overhaul for Oblivion. Same problems though.
- UI. You can't assign anything at numeric keys. You got that Q button which helps you change weapon in three steps instead of one.
- Bad animations. Horse riding is pain to watch after M&B and RDR. And you still can't fight mounted!
- Unbelievable NPC behavior. Repetitive quotes -- beyond belief. Stealth is a joke again. "I think I heard something!" -- No ****???
- Scale of the world is just not enough for desirable epicness. Everything is feels very tight like taking place in your backyard.
- Questionable level design. Unavoidable fights, which are triggered and you can't avoid them. (so much for stealth)
- Whole big world revolves around YOU. That lazy bastards, can't do anything without you. And of course they trust you first time they ever see you.
- Dialogues is poetic and beautiful. "Oh hi, stranger, go to X, bring me Y". Somebody was disappointed with Fallout 3? Really?
- Questionable design for leveling. Perks is great innovation, but the main and secondary skills are gone? Gaining experience at everything -- in Elder Scrolls game?
This game is stuck in 2006. It's good but not great -- same scale, same problems. And overall feeling -- it is... sketchy.
Real MUST PLAYS for PC so far:
Battlefield 3 (when not CTD)
Blood is right off the bat, one of the best games that came out during the golden age of gaming. Heres why, it does take the same route other shooters of the time took, FPS run and gun shooter with exploration based gameplay of looking for secrets. The key difference is most of your weapons are single shot weapons. Meaning that it isn't constant gun blazing. Most of the time your firing only once at each enemy. Or choosing to go with a pitchfork which is another iconic melee weapon that each other FPS game had at the time.
It also has something else unique, its brand of humor. It has so many movie, books, song references its like a walking time machine into the 1990's. Its like the comedy central of video games (like NOLF was for the 60s spy films). It rewards you for finding secret areas with more of these references while giving you more ammunition that the game seems to be a little scarce on.
It also has another thing the other games of its time didn't have. Super Secrets. These are secrets that are not recorded in the end of level statistics... some STILL HAVEN'T BEEN FOUND to this day! They require a 'just by sheer luck' chance of finding. Its speculated that each level has its own 'super secret'.
The story is nothing to applaud but its setting is unique, the whole urban setting of a run down places, cultists, necromancy but oddly lacking satanism (probably because we've seen that in Doom). This game has a special place for me.
It never achieved critical acclaim and I still can't see why. Maybe the other games at the time over shadowed it like Doom, Hexen, Duke Nukem 3d as they came before it. It's also a very difficult game so many might not like that.
Hexen has the advantage of being one of the most unique games that came out, it made swinging a axe or mace for the first time a joy for many people who owned a Nintendo 64.
It had a nice variety of locations and enemies, and a unique set of weapons for each class that added to the replay value. Theres quite a few secret areas to and its gotten quite a few good mods to improve the game further. The bosses feel tougher and better designed than the Doom 1, 2 counterparts.
Yes it's hard to not like this game even considering how old it is now.
There are disadvantages, like you could want more assets into the game, so that theres more furniture and other props... and the game feels a little empty without secondary attacks for your 4 weapons.
HexenHanced fixes that though. Community have added alot to this game.
Although the story and the lack of characterization for the classes doesn't give you anything to think about.
Una de las mejores aventuras que he tenido ocasion de jugar. Los graficos son una verdadera maravilla, asi como la musica y la jugabilidad. Tal vez peque de dificil para los aventureros novatos.
Este juego garantiza muchas horas perdidas :)
Mi nota: 10/10
