Decent GameAirborneOps | Aug. 21, 2012 | Review of The Lord of the Rings: War in the North
The game is good, the graphics look good and the action gets intense in some areas. However the game is very linear and kind of plain. The combat itself is just hack and slash and not much else to it besides some magic and ranged combat. The story is good but i had a hard time associating it with the LOTR universe. I only played the game in single player but the game is supposed to really shine in coop. I would recommend it if you have two other friends to play with otherwise it is a pretty lonely experience.
Great Story and lots of fun.AirborneOps | Aug. 21, 2012 | Review of Sleeping Dogs Digital Edition (NA)
Sleeping Dogs is an open world game done right. The story is great, the actors are great and the Cantonese dialogue is also done very well. The game has a ton of things going for it. For starters its relatively long compared to other open world games such as mafia 2. There are more things to do and the city itself is very vibrant.
Most people wonder what the driving is like, it is a mix of grand theft auto and saints row. The melee combat is very satisfying and done well especially with the environmental kills. Only downside to the game is the fact that the keyboard controls are a bit wonky and aren't very intuitive. I had to pull out an Xbox 360 controller to fully enjoy the combat. The game is great so make sure to grab it.
Great classic RPGAirborneOps | Aug. 13, 2012 | Review of Beyond Divinity
This is a great classic rpg. I have not played the first game, however this little gem is amazing. It has all the elements you expect from an rpg that still holds up to games that come out today. The graphics are dated but still managed to keep me playing. The beginning of the game is pretty linear but it gradually opens up and it just gets better and better.
Whacky and just plain fun!AirborneOps | Aug. 13, 2012 | Review of Saints Row: The Third
The game has been enjoyable. The story is entertaining and a bit ridiculous but with a good soundtrack and great mechanics, it is a one of a kind experience. It is not as serious as the previous two games but that is what made me enjoy it all the more. It also has great performance on the PC.
Great CampaignAirborneOps | Aug. 4, 2012 | Review of Total War: SHOGUN 2 - Rise of the Samurai Campaign
I really enjoyed this addition to the main campaign. Much hasn't changed from the original campaign, but it makes the era feel completely different. The new units are interesting and each clan has their strengths and weaknesses. However, there are two sub clans for each of the three major clans, and they are not very different from each other. The campaign is a sold add on.
Engrossing MultiplayerAirborneOps | Sept. 20, 2011 | Review of Red Orchestra 2: Heroes of Stalingrad
While playing the beta for 2 weeks before release i reserved my judgement on the game until the official release was out. From the full game, the multiplayer action is intense and very satisfying compared to more recent games. If you are a person that enjoys single life game modes, Countdown is very well made with one side defending while the other side tries to capture the control point. The attacking commander can call reinforcements up to two times before it is depleted.
Compared to the original game, the combat is faster and much more frantic in this sequel. However there are a few bugs they need to iron out such as memory leaks. However, Tripwire is one dedicated team and each patch increases performance.
