Lackluster 'choices'Apsac | July 9, 2013 | Review of Hitman: Absolution
I've never played a Hitman game before this, and I'm disappointed that I started here.
By no means is this a bad game, but it has certain design choices that take away from the game as a whole. Such as having a point mechanic.
It gives you plenty of options to get the job done, but then points are factored in, and certain methods are worth more points. It's almost like telling you that it's okay to have an opinion, but mine is better.
It's a bit clunky, but overall has some good mechanics and can be both frustrating and fun.
It's worth playing, but it's more or less a forgettable experience.
Doesn't do much different, but is still great.Apsac | July 9, 2013 | Review of Borderlands 2 (ANZ)
Borderlands left people wanting more of the same... Minus the technical issues, and that's basically what Borderlands 2 is.
It's fun alone, it's fun with friends, and offers hundreds of hours worth of content.
The mechanics are solid, the visuals are nice and accommodating to all builds of PCs, the humour is actually funny, and the replayability factor is through the roof.
If you haven't played it yet, you're missing out.
