Great reboot of the Tomb Raider franchise

Demeryk | May 25, 2013 | Review of Tomb Raider overflow 3

Crystal Dynamic finally succeeded in reviving the Tomb Raider franchise. This game is stunningly beautiful, the gameplay is a good blend of combat, puzzles, and platforming sequences.

The signature weapon, the bow, handles very well, is rewarding and easy to use.

The story sometimes make use of overused cliches, like the damsel in distress, but manages to stay interesting.

The multiplayer isn't the game strong suit and contains the usual modes, such as deathmatch and capture the flag, but can still entertain you a few hours. Enough people are online that is easy (for now) to find games.

If you've never played a Tomb Raider title before, this is a great game to start!

Just one more turn

Demeryk | May 15, 2013 | Review of Sid Meier's Civilization® V

This review could be summed with the following words: one...more...turn!

Disclaimer: I've never played a civilization game before. However, I became hooked up as soon as I began playing. Even for a beginner, it's very easy to pick up and enjoy, the in-game help is very thorough and will help you learn the subtleties of the game and master it.

I had the most fun playing against multiple AI opponents, guiding a civilization from the prehistory to the space race. It's possible to customize a game to suit your need, by selecting the number of opponents, free-cities, type of map, size, and more.

In my opinion, the combat system is not a strong point of the game, but the possibility to win through diplomacy, cultural domination, or technological superiority more than make up for it.

Given the numbers of hours you're likely to spend playing it if you're a fan of strategy, buying the game will give you great value for your money!

A game to experience

Demeryk | May 4, 2013 | Review of DLC Quest

DLC Quest takes you back twenty years with its old style graphics and 8-bit music. Through a charming story, it will make you laugh and reflect upon the state of modern gaming, where achievements are used to lengthen games, cosmetic changes such as horse armors are sold at a high price, and DLC is even used to change the ending.

The experience is over very quickly, but it is still well worth his price. Completionists have a fair amount of exploration to do to obtain everything and earn all achievements, and you can play the story multiple times to improve your score and rank up the leaderboards.
