Not a Great Devil May Cry Game, but an Excellent Action Game.

Darkrai64 | May 29, 2014 | Review of DmC: Devil May Cry

The biggest problem with this game is it is called Devil May Cry. There was a lot of hate surrounding this game because of that fact. However, if it is considered its own series, then it is a great game. The soundtrack is all around good, but I especially like the battle themes with regular enemies.

The graphics are very impressive and the level design is solid. The storyline is based upon how the demons take control in which the demons are controlling the humans through the news and other various means. The gameplay is great and is easy to pick up.

The only problem I have with the gameplay is how some enemies require either heaven or hell weapons to be used on them in order to kill them. This limits the player on how they can perform their combos. Otherwise, the gameplay is fun. There is quite a bit of replayability here, with seven difficulty levels, the blood palace, and a few other game modes.

A Fast Paced Exciting Game

Darkrai64 | May 29, 2014 | Review of Devil May Cry 4

Devil May Cry 4 is exhilarating and very fast paced. If you are not on your toes, you will not do well. It has a learning curve, but there are multiple difficulty modes. New players can play on the easier difficulty modes In order to learn how to perform some impressive combos. Once you learn how to perform these combos, the game becomes even more fun! The graphics are great and the gameplay is solid.

However, the developers became lazy with the second part of the game and basically mirrored the first part of the game with some added areas/bosses. Otherwise, with two characters to play as, six difficulty modes, the PC exclusive Legendary Dark Knight difficulty mode (which spawns more enemies than normal), blood palace, and more, Devil May Cry 4 has a good amount of replayability.

A Fantastic Multiplayer Experience.

Darkrai64 | May 28, 2014 | Review of Battlefield 4 (NA)

The multiplayer is where the game shines. The singleplayer is actually decent. It was fun to play through, but it was mostly linear and there is not much of a reason to go through it a second time. The multiplayer, however, is what keeps players playing for days, weeks, months, and maybe even years! The multiplayer has a lot of action happening. With ground, sea, and aerial combat, the enemy can attack from any direction. The maps are mostly well done and feature multiple routes to flank your enemy. There are many unlockables, including weapons, medals, attachments, and more. The graphics are excellent, quite possibly one of the best looking FPS games on the market. The game had a very rough launch, but after many patches, it is much better. If you are looking for a fun multiplayer experience, check out Battlefield 4.

A fantastic strategy game.

Darkrai64 | Jan. 4, 2014 | Review of Sid Meier's CivilizationĀ® V

Definitely one of the top strategic games I have ever played. This game is highly replayable, with many civilizations to choose from and many options to customize the map that you play on. The AI has been improved significantly, and if you are not careful, they can take you down on higher difficulty levels. There are nine difficulty levels to choose from, which allows anyone ranging from a new player to an experienced player to enjoy the game. The graphics are pleasant to look at and the UI is sleek, allowing ease of navigation. The combat makes it so you cannot stack all of your units on one tile and that you have to place your units strategically. There is multiplayer, but I have yet to play it since I mainly just play the singleplayer. However, I would recommend only playing multiplayer with friends. Overall, I would highly recommend buying this game.

Not worth it.

Darkrai64 | Dec. 22, 2013 | Review of Aliens: Colonial Marines

This game had a lot of potential. When it was first showed off, it looked amazing. Unfortunately, the end product is something that is much worse than what was shown. The singleplayer was extremely boring and the characters seemed quite flat. I did not care about the characters at all. The graphics were worse than the graphics shown in the first couple of trailers. The multiplayer is actually decent, but unfortunately, not many people play it anymore. Instead of having a server browser, they have a matchmaking system, making it tough to find anyone. I would recommend not getting this game since very few people play the multiplayer anymore.
