Amazing experience

Bliddo | Aug. 14, 2013 | Review of Bioshock Infinite

First thing first: I hated the combat in the first Bioshock, I heard that many people don't like the combat in this one either, but I REALLY enjoyed it. It was just pure fun, plain and simple. The shooting is tight, and combined with the vigors and the verticality of the skyhook makes for a perfect example of first person shooting done right. The real core of the game though is the story and the environment. The later is just astonishing, the details and the artistic touches are just astonishing. The story is one of the most mesmerizing experiences in gaming history, and needs to be witnessed.

A nice learning tool

Bliddo | Aug. 14, 2013 | Review of Rocksmith™

Rocksmith is definitely not a game per se, it's more of a learning tool, and as a learning tool can stand on its feet if you don't expect too much from it. You start by playing a small amount of notes, and little by little the game engine keeps adding notes to each section of the songs. It's a clever way to avoid frustration. One thing to note: it doesn't really teach you how to play guitar in general, but it teaches you how to play certain songs on the guitar. There's no music theory behind, so it's not a tool for guitarist, but it sure is fun to learn your favourite song.

Wothy of its name

Bliddo | Aug. 14, 2013 | Review of XCOM: Enemy Unknown

A great modern approach to the XCOM series. The gameplay is rich and deep, but it's also easy to pick up and play, even when you come back to the game after a while. The story is forgettable, but it's a mere tool to let you play the missions. Overall an amazing turn based strategy game, faithful to its routes.
