A realistic sim racer or an arcade racer?BlockAgent | Dec. 9, 2013 | Review of Shift 2: Unleashed (NA)
I'll start off with the good...good graphics, great effects, wonderful car interiors, fast and fun gameplay. If you like the need for speed underground games or carbon, you will love this game. However, if you are looking for a realistic racer, this might not be the game for you. The bad...arcade-like handling, the overall attitude and drifting section of the game is very teenager boy-racer, the host of the game is very annoying and EA cheaped out on the sound and made most of the cars sound the same. The cars handle great with a 360 controller, but are almost undrivable with a racing wheel and pedal setup which futher shows that this game was not made to be realistic even though EA markets it to be.
Fun, but definitely made on a low budgetBlockAgent | Dec. 8, 2013 | Review of Lucius
Lucius is a fun game and unlike other games I have played. Without wanting to give anything away, you proceed the game by claiming souls for the devil as a child who is possessed. The ways in which you do this are both gruesome and creative. But sometimes the games low budget shows through. I noticed several graphical and programming glitches while playing. None of them affected the playability of the game however. Sometimes the game doesn't give you enough instruction or help on what to do or where to go. A little more instruction or a hint feature would have been nice. The graphics are ok, nothing special, but nothing bad. Overall a decent budget game.
Fun gameplay, challenging puzzles, a great adventureBlockAgent | Sept. 22, 2013 | Review of Brothers: A Tale of Two Sons
This is a great adventure game, but good eye and hand coordination is needed....and rewarded. Controlling the 2 brothers can be a challenge at first, but once you get the hang of it, you will love this adventure. There are so many unique things in this game that you have not experienced in a game before. The story is great, the graphics are pretty, and the adventure is real. Pick this one up, but make sure you have a controller with 2 control sticks on it, such as an xbox 360 controller. Otherwise it will be much harder to play. The game does have the option for you to use a keyboard if you have no other choice.
Horrifying, but I love it!BlockAgent | Sept. 17, 2013 | Review of Dead Space (NA)
This game gives you chills while you walk your character down the darkened halls of the space station. You aren't sure if you want to continue down the hall because you are afraid of what might be around the corner..but you can't help but look anyway. That's when this game grabs you and scares the heck out of you! The game is alot of fun because of that. The game has alot going for it, great graphics (even by today's standards), great sound effects and creepy music, fun gameplay and good voice acting as well. The controls and functions take a little bit to get used to, but then they are fine and become second nature. If you are looking for an intense game that will keep you creeped out and on the edge of your seat, treat yourself to this one.
Few games get my heart racing, this is one of themBlockAgent | Sept. 17, 2013 | Review of Condemned: Criminal Origins
This game made me jump quite a few times. When you least expect it, a bad guy will sneak up behind you, or pop out of a stairwell and scare you half to death. This game's combat focus mostly on melee fighting and it does that fantastically. Usually in games, when you run out of ammo and have to fight with melee weapons you get a sense of dread because the experience of is so bad. But with Condemned, you will actually find yourself preferring to use a fire ax or a crow bar rather than a handgun or shotgun. The graphics are good, but are starting to show thier age. This game is a definite must buy if you remember when this game came out and wanted to play it, but never got around to it.
Fun game with lots to exploreBlockAgent | Sept. 9, 2013 | Review of Just Cause
So much to explore! This game has a story that is nice in length and does a good job of not being repetitive. Think of it as Grand Theft Auto set in an third world latin country and you will have a sense of it. Plenty of adventure to be had here.
Excellent racing simulator, perfect for any car guy.BlockAgent | Sept. 9, 2013 | Review of GTR Evolution
I love this game. The graphics are amazing, the physics dead-on perfect. I highly recommend a steering wheel and pedals for this experience, but it is still very playable with a gamepad. This is like the real deal. The cars, the tracks, the sounds, all are life-like and true to real life. Gotta pick this one up if you like cars or racing, or both.
Still to this day I can't stop playingBlockAgent | Sept. 9, 2013 | Review of Battlefield 2 Complete Collection (NA)
I love this game. Great graphics, great gameplay, great sound, great everything. I very much enjoy playing on single player with the bots. This game never gets old, stale and boring...never. Worth every penny.
Great pack of duke historyBlockAgent | Sept. 9, 2013 | Review of The Duke Nukem Platformer Pack
Fun, challenging and chock-full of kicking alien butt! For the cheap price, it's totally worth playing these, especially Manhattan Project.
Fun game even if it didn't live up to the hypeBlockAgent | Sept. 9, 2013 | Review of Duke Nukem Forever
This is a Duke game through and through, make no mistake. A victim of too much hype prior to release, possibly. This game is very fun and humourous just like the original. Any duke fan will have a good time playing through it.
Great game, a blast to play!BlockAgent | Sept. 9, 2013 | Review of Operation Flashpoint: Red River
This game looks great and plays wonderfully. I had an absolute blast playing through it. It is challenging, yet not overly hard on the normal difficulty setting. This is one of the few games where, for the most part, your AI squad mates actually are intelligent and help you fight the enemy. This game has exciting and never repetitive missions that you embark on. This game feels very realistic. Especially so in the viability of the enemy in the terrain and the amount of damage your character can take before being knocked down and needing medical care. I highly recommend this game to everyone.
Even better than the originalBlockAgent | Sept. 9, 2013 | Review of Shank 2
The equal to Shank took everything great about the original and made it even better. This was a very fun game to play through. The character unlocks and medals to earn kept me playing beyond the first play-through as well. I love the art design in this game.
Fun Little arcade-like button masherBlockAgent | Sept. 9, 2013 | Review of Shank
This game is a fun brawler with great art design. It's challenging, fun and humorous. The action is non-stop and that makes me happy.
What can I say, fun in chaos.BlockAgent | Sept. 9, 2013 | Review of Grand Theft Auto IV: Complete Edition
If you love the Grand Theft Auto series, you will love this game. With the original game and both expansions, you have alot of entertainment ahead of you. A blast to play through the story and a blast to just tool around the city causing trouble. This is a game you will be coming back and playing after beating it for the next 10 years. It takes everything great about the series, pumps up the graphics to a whole new level and never disappoints.
Beautiful graphics showcase...that's a great game as well!BlockAgent | Sept. 9, 2013 | Review of Crysis Maximum Edition (NA)
This game was built as a graphical showpiece, that's very obvious from the very first scene of the game. But what's also obvious is that this is a great game. The gameplay is fantastic and fun. The objectives and story are never boring. Neither is the action. Its fun and hair-raising at times. I find myself going back and playing through this game again and again for, if anything, to go sight-seeing. A must for any gamer.
Great game with great new featuresBlockAgent | Sept. 9, 2013 | Review of BioShock® 2
First off, play the original first. You can play this without playing the first bioshock, but you won't truly appreciate #2 without having experienced #2. With that said, #2 takes all of the great elements of the first game, improves upon them, and then throws in new very cool features. Weapons, plasmids, the graphics, the level destructiveness, etc are all improved and freshened in this sequel. All the same great gameplay and storywriting skill are present in this one and that makes it another must have game for any gamer.
Great game that lives up to its legendary statusBlockAgent | Sept. 9, 2013 | Review of BioShock (NA)
Bioshock is a game that immerses you in it's world. It gives you choices to make that you really are torn on what to do. From the period correct music to the visuals, it really draws you in. Only problem I had with the game is that at times it can become a little repetitive in it's gameplay. It is very fun gameplay though and the game concludes before it becomes overly stale. Great game that every gamer should have in thier library.
Great adventure game for those who are used to AAA gamesBlockAgent | Sept. 9, 2013 | Review of The Raven: Legacy of a Master Thief
As a player of alot of AAA games, I find adventure games hard to get into and enjoy because most are made on a low budget...and it shows. That's not the case with The Raven though. Great graphics, great scriptwriting, great gameplay, etc. This game is the AAA of the adventure genre. I bought this game for my wife and ended up loving it myself as well. Ran into 1 glitch that occurs in a single scene, but that's all. Otherwise, it's great.
Very fun mario kart style gameBlockAgent | Sept. 9, 2013 | Review of Sonic and All-Stars Racing Transformed
The game runs very smooth and is alot of fun to play. My wife and i enjoy playing 2 player split screen alot. The graphics look as good as promised and the everything from the sound effects to the tracks throw back to memories of sega past.
