One of the best game in history of gameAndreasqiao | March 4, 2014 | Review of Company of Heroes
Epic! That is the perfect word for this game. The graphics is truly next-gen at launch time (which at 2006) and yet still not too outdated until now (2014).
The Gameplay itself is very addictive, it feels original and something new than the other similar strategy game out there whether it is WWII based or not. It's like the hybrid of action and strategy hybrid with balanced portion each.
The graphics : Yep, this game is almost 8 years old by the time I write this review but it is not too outdated and still a pleasant view to see. The other advantages is you can max out all the graphics setting and still have 60+ with your modern hardware.
The sound : Dramatic. It will really drag you to WWII period battlefield, the sound and voice of soldiers is amazing.
Conclusion : Buy this game , it is a must have !! I truly recommend you all to buy this game whether it is on sale or not. You will NOT disappointed because this game is really worth your money.
The best and most realistic game of Age of EnlightenmentAndreasqiao | Feb. 7, 2014 | Review of Empire: Total War
The first game in total war series that used Warscape Engine 4 years ago and still looks beautiful until now. It also depart from previous series which based on mainly melee combat , replaced with gunpowder , cannon and warship !
Gameplay : Very realistic ! CA took attention to detail thoroughly from time needed to load the bullet in musket to battle formation in that era. Naval battle takes important factor now with new option and tactic. But above all, the new gameplay type that involving more shooting than hand to hand combat is the best gameplay feature in ETW.
Graphics : Absolutely beautiful and yet quite scalable (though SSAO is very demanding will sap away your frame rate immensely). Campaign map is also beautiful.The naval warfare is a gorgeous scene ! The sea is detailly rendered.
Sound : The songs here is not spectacular compared with previous title but it is surely enough to bring 18th century culture and music (too bad that CA didn't add Vivaldi's Four Season !)
Overall : With huge amount of Kingdoms mixed with new feature and strategy for both campaign map and battle map, this game is one of the best game in 2009 and still worth to play until now. The best total war title yet in 2009 when it was released 4 years ago.
