Great game but aged poorly

Darkslayer16 | Sept. 22, 2012 | Review of Jet Set Radio

It was a great game when it first came out and if you have good memories of it then you will still probably enjoy it, but if it's your first time playing it some of the mechanics can be annoying. The time restraint and camera would be the main things that didn't age well but the art style and music are still good.

Amazing

Darkslayer16 | Aug. 16, 2012 | Review of Darksiders II

Darksiders 2 is amazing in just about every way, it controls well (with a gamepad, not sure about about keyboard and mouse), has a good story, looks great, added loot / leveling and should last you a long time. The only negative is that it has very few graphic options, it's pretty much just choose a resolution. It's still a must buy though, especially if you liked the first one.

Dated and boring

Darkslayer16 | Aug. 15, 2012 | Review of Conflict: Desert Storm

Even at release the game was fairly boring and tedious, but with the amount of games in the genre that play so much better.. this game just isn't worth it. I wouldn't really recommend it to anyone. It's playable yeah, but you would just regret it.

Fun but not for everyone

Darkslayer16 | Aug. 15, 2012 | Review of Sleeping Dogs Digital Edition

Sleeping Dogs is an open world sandbox game that is fun imo but not for everyone. The combat / gameplay is good, can get pretty repetitive and a lot of the voice acting is terrible. If played in short bursts, it's a great game tho and it runs really well and looks fairly good.

Disappointing but decent

Darkslayer16 | Aug. 15, 2012 | Review of Red Faction Armageddon

Red Faction Armageddon is a decent 3rd person shooter but is disappointing in comparison to RFG. The gunplay and controls are fine, but they stripped out all the open world exploration and side missions / random destruction and turned it into a linear 3rd person shooter with like 4 types of enemies. They also removed the competitive multiplayer and replaced it with a 4 player wave based survival. The game is still fun if if you don't go in expecting RFG but most people would agree it's not worth it's current price and should be bought during a sale.

Decent but repetitive

Darkslayer16 | Aug. 6, 2012 | Review of Death Rally

Death Rally is top down combat racing game that is fairly fun but gets repetitive. You can only equip 1 gun besides your main gun that you can't change, and the gameplay gets old. You are either doing short races on one of the few tracks or a boring deathmatch. If you like these types of games you won't be disappointed but it's not exactly a genre with little competition and at the current price it's not really worth it.

Decent MMO

Darkslayer16 | Aug. 2, 2012 | Review of TERA (NA)

The game looks amazing and the combat is great, but the leveling is extremely grind heavy. The first time you fight a boss or bam and have to block at the right times and learn it's attack pattern it's amazing. The problem is when you know the pattern and have to fight the same things over and over it loses a lot of it's appeal and the PvP is terrible.

Suprisingly good Sonic game

Darkslayer16 | Aug. 2, 2012 | Review of Sonic Generations

For the first time in years it's actually a Sonic game that I find enjoyable instead of being garbage. The sense of speed is still there and it controls well unlike a lot of the recent games in the franchise and you won't die from camera problems anymore. The story is fairly average but honestly who cares about story in a sonic game.

Great game

Darkslayer16 | Aug. 2, 2012 | Review of Alice: Madness Returns (NA) dns

Alice is a 3rd person action game that is fairly heavy on platforming but has good air control unlike other games in the genre. The combat is fun and you actually have to pay attention and block / counter on the hard setting and not just mash / spam the attack button. It has a good story and great visuals, I highly recommend it.

Decent game

Darkslayer16 | Aug. 2, 2012 | Review of All Zombies Must Die

It's a fun game if played in short bursts, but if you try to play it for lengthy amounts of time it becomes extremely tedious and boring. If it had online co-op it would be better.

Amazing

Darkslayer16 | Aug. 2, 2012 | Review of World of Goo

World of Goo is an amazing puzzle game, the art style and concept are great and the game is simple yet challenging. Pretty much everyone will enjoy it as long as you don't obsess over getting the OCD flags.

Terrible

Darkslayer16 | Aug. 2, 2012 | Review of Twin Sector

This game is terrible it just about every way possible, it looked and sounded interesting and I wanted to like it, but the voice acting, controls and graphics are horrible. Not in anyway worth a buy.

Not worth it

Darkslayer16 | Aug. 2, 2012 | Review of Magicka: Heirlooms Item Pack DLC

Much like "Magicka: Peculiar Gadgets Item Pack DLC" unless you actively play Magicka a lot it's not worth $2. It will inevitably be in a collection or under a dollar since Magicka goes on sale constantly. Waiting till then is your best option imo.

Not really worth $2

Darkslayer16 | Aug. 2, 2012 | Review of Magicka: Peculiar Gadgets Item Pack DLC

You get a few extra items but honestly unless you really like Magicka it's not worth it. Especially when it will inevitably be in a "Magicka collection" or under $1 during a sale. You should probably just wait till then.

Dated but fun

Darkslayer16 | Aug. 1, 2012 | Review of Disciples III: Resurrection Capsule

Disciples is a fun turn based rpg but the graphics and ui feel extremely dated. The story is fairly average and it's expensive for what it is. If you are looking for a turn based rpg you should probably consider other options, but if this game is on sale it's not exactly terrible.

Reccomend a flightstick / controller

Darkslayer16 | July 30, 2012 | Review of Wings of Prey

Wings of Prey is a fun WW2 flight sim but controlling it with a keyboard feels really awkward and some of the missions seem a little drawn out. If you have a gamepad or flightstick you shouldn't be disappointed

Very boring

Darkslayer16 | July 30, 2012 | Review of Farming Simulator 2011 Platinum Edition

I know I'm not the target audiance for the game but it is extremely boring. The hired help AI is fairly brain dead and the game is full of glitches. Don't buy it unless you really want to try it. Even then tho I would watch some videos on it first to make sure.

Great game

Darkslayer16 | July 30, 2012 | Review of Plants vs Zombies Game of the Year Edition (NA) dns

PvZ is a really simplistic but fun game that will take hours and hours of your time and is great for anyone. It's best played in short bursts so it doesn't get repetitive tho.

80

Surprisingly good

Darkslayer16 | July 30, 2012 | Review of Binary Domain

Binary Domain is a surprisingly good game with a decent story and fluid combat. It's fairly unique the way you interact with your squad mates and a few of them are actually good characters. Sadly the game doesn't have a co-op campaign and the online is fairly dead tho.

Good game but repetitive

Darkslayer16 | July 30, 2012 | Review of Borderlands Game of the Year Edition dns

Borderlands is an amazing game if played co-op and it's extremely satisfying to constantly be finding weapons with better stats. The problem is the story is fairly forgettable and if you play it by yourself it's extremely tedious and boring.

Amazing

Darkslayer16 | July 30, 2012 | Review of Darksiders

Darksiders in an amazing game and if you have ever had any interest in a Zelda game it's a must buy. The combat is fairly simple but satisfying, the story is great and you wont regret buying it.

Disappointing

Darkslayer16 | July 30, 2012 | Review of Front Mission Evolved

Not at all like the original Front Mission game, Front Mission Evolved is a fairly generic and tedious game with horrible voice acting that repeats often with drawn out boss battles and poor combat. Do not buy unless you 100% have to play a mech game and even then, consider other options.

74

Decent game

Darkslayer16 | July 30, 2012 | Review of Ridge Racer: Unbounded (NA)

It's a decent game, handles fairly well and has a fairly decent track creator. The problem is the online is pretty much dead and the lighting effects may bother some people. It also plays nothing like other Ridge Racer games so don't but it expecting that.
