Uncharted of the female world.

Darlizzle | Aug. 23, 2013 | Review of Tomb Raider

In my opinion a good origin story with exceptional pace. The set pieces are a thing to beyond with everything running smoothly. While an incredibly linear game (with the ability to fast travel back to previous areas in order to collect scrap ( to upgrade weapons) etc, a fast paced one always moving you forward. I believe i 100% in around 20hrs or so, which for this price (with 20% off of course) is a very good experience. More tombs would have been appreciated, hopefully fixed in a future sequel.

If you loved far cry 3, you'll love this

Darlizzle | Aug. 23, 2013 | Review of Far Cry 3 Blood Dragon

as stated above, it's far cry 3 on steroids set in the 80's.

100% in around 8 hrs with a story that makes only a lick of sense but you love it because of it. It gives you a task, you go kick the butt out of it.

The usual collectathon upgrades weapons and collect stuff for collection sake.

Highly enjoyable game

oh and also

DRAGONS WITH LASER BEAMS - COME ON.

What A Gem Of Its Time.

Darlizzle | Aug. 23, 2013 | Review of Beyond Good and Evil

3rd person story driven adventure game - wow how on earth did i not play this when i was younger. so glad i picked it up as it still holds up to this day. some sections will annoy you (some camera angles for sure) but overall a lovable game that i wish they would do a sequel to. Also capsule is easy to download, install, and play on.

Not Like The Originals, But Totally Worth It.

Darlizzle | May 3, 2013 | Review of Tomb Raider Overflow

As can be see from the title this is an extremely good game, but not like the originals.

Some people will not like that, I was open to playing it. Nearing the end and am thoroughly enjoying it.

From a gameplay perspective it's your basic 3rd person action game, but with uncharted style movement around the game (rock climbing, zip lines etc).

All in all I found the story to be a solid one so far, with the story pushing you from 1 area to the next. Some may say it is too linear, I myself find it rather enjoyable within the boundaries of the story (fast travel back to previous areas is available past a certain point in the game, so collectible hunters like myself can easily gain the 100% complete).

The tombs hidden throughout the land are what original tomb raider games were, these tombs are on the shorter side, but a nice change of pace from the run and gun-ness of the main game. More tombs would have been nice, but overall very impressed, especially as I picked it up for £12.

What Can I Say

Darlizzle | May 3, 2013 | Review of BioShock Infinite Post

Well what can I say about Bioshock Infinite - HOT DAMN.

Ok lets get the obvious out of the way first, I played the game on Hard (i think this is a damn good way to play the game) and finished it in just under 15 hours.

Short, but then again Bioshock 1 and 2 weren't any different really.

What you get for those 15 hours is a pure gem of a first person shooter.

Elizabeth is one of the best companions ever written into a game - some truly thought provoking moments with her, without getting in the way when in combat (she actually helps you out by finding ammo etc during a fight).

And the story, oh my word, what a story. From start to finish your in a gorgeous world that befits a flying city (rapture before rapture became hell). I finished the game in a marathon 3 hour final play and wouldn't have done it any other way. Those final 3 hours are some of the best and mind bending in a game - more so than the original Bioshock's finale.

I bought Bioshock here for £23 odd, and just picked up the Season Pass for Under £10 as well. I would happily have paid full price for the thrill ride that is Bioshock Infinite.
