Not so great platformer

Baumshlager | May 24, 2014 | Review of Rush Bros.

The idea of rhythm platform sounds good in theory, but this was poorly executed in practice. The changing of traps to the changing of music is, most of the time, very confusing. The controls are unresponsive. All this makes the game harder than it should be. But i guess you can pick this up on sale if you are a big fan of platformers.

Pretty decent, if not a bit overly difficult

Baumshlager | May 24, 2014 | Review of Super Sanctum TD

I'm not a big fan of TD games, but this one had me hooked right away. The 'spells' and weapon towers are cool and the eradication of various enemy types is gratifying. I also loved the retro graphics. The further you progress in the game, however, the difficulty rises exponentially to the point of almost impossible even on 'normal'. Grab this one, even if you're not a fan of tower defense games.

A great game on it's own merits

Baumshlager | Dec. 2, 2013 | Review of Deus Ex: Human Revolution Augmented Edition

If this was not a prequel to the original Deus Ex, it would still be an epic game. Although it is set in the "past", the technology looks more advanced,and that,with the boss levels that seem out of place, would be the only downside. You can again pick your own playstyle: be stealthy, go on a murderous rampage, or something in-between. I especially liked the pheromone analysis part where you have to talk the NPCs into doing your biding by monitoring their behavior. The story wasn't as good as the original, but it still gives you an option to choose the ending you prefer, which is great, and one mission includes the iconic Tracer Tong as a young man. Immersive sci-fi setting and a gret combination of FPS,RPG and a stealth game.Get this game, you won't be disappointed.
