Definitely a worms gameDragosLoL | July 16, 2014 | Review of Worms Revolution
Worms Revolution stays true to the worms series and offers a great multiplayer. The graphics are cute and cartoon like as any worms game out there and the gameplay mechanics will make you think a bit. The game is silly and will definitely make you laugh. The game also has a great learning curve for those new to the worms series using the tutorial and campaign options. The only drawback is that sometimes the game can get a bit buggy with the frame rate and connections. Other than that, go ahead and give this game a try. You'll definitely have a blast!
Strategic but a bit overestimatedDragosLoL | July 16, 2014 | Review of Tower Wars
Tower Wars is a fun, strategic game that will make you think of where you want to place your defenses. However, it's not a easy game. You'll have to think carefully of how you want to upgrade your defenses and spend your gold to build and send out units. But everything seems to snowball a bit too easily because of one mistake. Multiplayer and Bots are good for learning the game but sometimes it just matters on decisions and luck. You opponent might get the strongest unit out there while you have all upgraded towers but that's still not enough unfortunately that really unbalanced the game mechanics. The game doesn't get "competitive" but does give a challenge to hardcore TD fans. I would recommend to give it a try if you just want to play around.
Could be a bit better...DragosLoL | July 16, 2014 | Review of Sniper Elite: Nazi Zombie Army 2
Sniper Elite: Nazi Zombies Army 2 is the 2nd in the Nazi Zombies Army series. But unfortunately, the difference between the first and second don't show much. Nazi Zombies Army 2 just offers the sequel storyline of the first game and some new enviroments. Other than that, there aren't any new loadouts or enemies really. The game didn't even get a graphical update. It looks just like the first one. That doesn't mean the game isn't fun though, it's still really enjoyable with friends just as the first one is but you shouldn't expect anything new out of this one compared to the first Nazi Zombies unfortunately.
Gotta have a precise shotDragosLoL | July 16, 2014 | Review of Sniper Elite: Nazi Zombie Army
Sniper Elite: Nazi Zombies Army is the first of the Nazi Zombies series but don't expect it to be like CoD Nazi Zombies, this game is difficult. You have to have a good aim to beat it. Single Player is fun but kind of tiring because of the amount of zombies you have to take out each time, which is a challenge. The 4-player Co-Op mode is where the game really shines and it makes the game more difficult but more fun as well. Unlike most zombie horde games where they come from windows or buildings, zombies can spawn from ANYWHERE. The variety of enemies make the game interesting as well, you can have jumping zombies that snipe from on top of buildings or explosive zombies. The one feature I loved the most was that there were zombie bosses and these bosses weren't your average just shoot to kill bosses. Each boss had specific mechanics that you had to read to take them down, and you have to take care of zombie hordes while fighting the bosses. So it made the game harder but more enjoyable at the same time. So if you ever decide to pick up this game, pick it up with a couple of friends and have a blast!
Kinda GTA, but not GTA (in a good way)DragosLoL | July 16, 2014 | Review of Sleeping Dogs Digital Edition
Sleeping Dogs is one of my favorite open world games out there. The gameplay style functions a bit like Grand Theft Auto but not exactly. Sleeping Dogs has its own unique "kink" to its gameplay. You could learn martial arts or using a bat or a gun to finish off your enemies. The game is very customizable when it comes to its RPG elements. The story is intriguing too as you venture as a undercover cop and have to deal with the triads of Hong Kong. There are a couple DLC available for the game as well but most of it consists of additional costumes and separate storylines. Unfortunately though, what you complete in the main story doesn't carry onto the DLC because the DLC are completely new stories and environments, which was a bit disappointing but wasn't too big of a issue. Overall, the game is great and you should give it a try if you want a good story and a open vast environment to play around in.
Creative, Fun, and CuteDragosLoL | July 16, 2014 | Review of Scribblenauts Unlimited (NA)
Scribblenauts is all about creativity, what you can create in the game, whether they be real or fantasy words. Plus, the steam workshop helps out with that by providing more resources created by the community. You could summon creatures like Cthulhu if you wanted to. The graphic style is very cute too and playful. It's almost hard not to like the art. The only drawback is that the environments and zones aren't that big enough. Objectives and puzzles aren't too challenging too, even a 5 yr old could figure them out. But Scribblenauts is a good game to try out if you just want to express your creativity.
Strategic and Fun to watchDragosLoL | July 16, 2014 | Review of Rome: Total War
I wasn't into the Total War series before until my cousin persuaded me to buy Rome: Total War so we could play together. The game's kind of small compared to today's standards but has some of the best mechanics in a strategy game. It's fun to watch thousands of little men have a all out brawl on a large, vast battlefield. You can have elephants or horses too. Each faction has its own unique military units that you can use to your advantage. Graphically, the game isn't as pretty but not horrible either. Probably the only drawback are the in-game settings. The settings don't give you much variety when it comes to resolution and what you want to see in-game such as markers. The Total War series is definitely addicting and worth a try.
Cute little gameDragosLoL | July 16, 2014 | Review of Reus
Reus isn't really a "god" game because most of the work done is the NPCs. The "gods" of the game are called titans and you control them, but they mostly just create and destroy environments. Nothing else really and that's kind of the drawback of the game because boredom will easily overcome you if you aren't patient. You have to be patient with Reus though because half of the time, you're just watching the world you create progess through civilization. It may take a few hours to complete one round of Reus but the game's really just a time killer since there's only single player available. It's a small game so you shouldn't expect much really. It's enjoyable to try for the first time thought so give it a try.
Don't expect muchDragosLoL | July 16, 2014 | Review of Nexuiz
If you like Quake, then you'll like this game. Otherwise you shouldn't expect as much from this game. I'm not saying this game isn't for the average FPS player out there, you should definitely give it a try. But it'll take you a while to get used to. Nexuiz used to be a mod for Quake, so the gameplay is really similar. But online multiplayer has no one online 99% of the time and you'll be forced to fight bots as there is no "single player story". Nexuiz is gone from the steam store so this is the only place to really buy it. But if you want to just mess around and shoot everything really fast then...go ahead and give it a try.
For diehard MK fansDragosLoL | July 16, 2014 | Review of Mortal Kombat: Arcade Kollection
This game really brings back memories of when I played MK when I was little. However, the game is small but don't underestimate it, it really goes back to its foundations. I wouldn't recommend this to a player just starting out in the MK series because of right now, MK 9 or the upcoming MK X would be a better choice for them as they would be looking for a more current game. But if you've played MK for years and just want to go back to its retro state, then you will enjoy this game. Not really competitive, but just a game for friends to play around with and having fun with your favorite MK characters.
Beautiful and ImmersiveDragosLoL | July 16, 2014 | Review of Mirror's Edge (NA)
One of my favorite games out there, Mirror's Edge offers a vast, open, immersive environment for players to dive into. The gameplay makes you feel like you really are free running through a vast city, even when it's indoors. The graphics are simple yet beautifully immersive where every objective is visually clear. It's hard to get lost as everything in the game is color coded in some sort of way. The story has this mystery aspect to it and just makes you want to ask for more. The game's relatively short but time challenges make up for it. Compete against other people online to see who can dominate the fastest time in a course. Mirror's Edge is definitely a must play game and I'm really excited to try out Mirror's Edge 2.
Doesn't help that you can't jump...DragosLoL | July 16, 2014 | Review of The Lord of the Rings: War in the North
Single player isn't that great. Co-op makes it a bit more fun but not enough to be satisfying as it's only max 3 players against hordes of enemies. There isn't much variety in the game either. Each character has its pros and cons but mostly its cons. Enemies are pretty straight forward and not hard to read but really hard to kill because each character is so over exaggerated for its utility and skills. It's obvious that this game was poorly developed but taken in consideration for only die hard Lord of the Rings fans. The lore makes up for most of the game's flaws but the gameplay just kills it. If you're a LotR fan, then go ahead, give the game a try. But other than that, I wouldn't recommend it to anyone else.
You want zombies? YOU GOT ZOMBIES!DragosLoL | July 16, 2014 | Review of Left 4 Dead 2
Left 4 Dead 2 is a classic for PC players out there. You don't have to be a fan of FPS or zombies to enjoy this game. Just invite some friends over, have a LAN party and enjoy trying to beat each other's score. This game is a must have for co-op player fans. Plus the steam workshop offers a vast amount of customization for you to mod and play around with. You can have your enemy Tank to be donkey kong or maybe your character could become sonic the hedgehog. The customization is endless. Versus mode is the PvP in Left 4 Dead 2 and it's just amusing to play as the enemies that you so detest in co-op. Want to ram your friends to the ground? Play as the tank. Want to choke your friend to death? Play as the smoker. It's just endless what you can do in the game. Only drawback is that playing solo can get boring and tiring. The only way to enjoy this game is with friends. So give it a try!
It's a MOBA but...it's not a MOBADragosLoL | July 16, 2014 | Review of Guardians of Middle Earth
Guardians of Middle Earth doesn't function like other MOBAs out there like DOTA, League of Legends, Smite, Dawngate, etc. But that's what kills it because it "doesn't" function like a MOBA. Whenever I choose a hero, it feels more like I could stand afk for the whole game and still make enough gold and experience as everyone else because there just isn't much individual progression as there should be. Plus, not everything's free in this game. If you're paying to buy a game and it's a MOBA, then you should expect to get most of the content for free. That's not the case, you're just paying to play the game. You'll have to grind out the in game money to buy your character and spend real cash to unlock skins. Graphically though, the game has it's perks and it's nice to see classic Lord of the Rings characters at your disposal. But it's just the gameplay aspect that kills the game. Maybe if you're Lord of the Rings fan and just want to play around with your favorite characters, then give this game a try. But if you're a experienced MOBA player, just stay away from this game.
TOO MUCH ACTIONDragosLoL | July 16, 2014 | Review of F.E.A.R. 3
If you've played the first two games and is looking for some scares, then don't play this one. F.E.A.R. 3 is FULL of action, it's not even scary at all. Probably the only horror aspect of the game is the new enemies that will jump at you unexpectedly. But other than that, this game feels more like a Dead Space 3 than a F.E.A.R. It's obvious that the developers spent more time on the action side than the horror side but that's what made F.E.A.R. good in the first place. The past F.E.A.R.s balanced action and horror quite well but this one just doesn't make the mark. However, if you are looking for a nice FPS to just shoot down enemies, then you might enjoy this because that's all you'll get.
Too much action?DragosLoL | July 16, 2014 | Review of F.E.A.R. 2: Project Origin
F.E.A.R. 2 doesn't balance out its action and horror aspects as its predecessor but doesn't do a horrible job of it either. The game is still really fun but it's more shooting than looking at images that will give you chills down your spine. Plus, the game is a bit too short and kind of feels like you just went window shopping through a arsenal of weapons. But above all, F.E.A.R. 2 does make up for a good FPS. Give it a try.
a bit overrated...DragosLoL | July 16, 2014 | Review of The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim®
Don't get me wrong, Skyrim is a amazing game with its vast enviroment and RPG aspects. But if you're not into the lore aspect and just want to level up and kill enemies, then this isn't really the game for you. Skyrim is one of the best single player RPGs out there but it isn't the top. The game is graphically and gameplay mechanically beautiful and a true sequel to its predecessors. But this isn't a game where you play it to try it out. Once you're immersed into the game, you'll need to and want to grind out those levels and try to complete each quest thrown at you, whether they be side or main questlines. Skyrim is definitely for the hardcore RPG/Elder Scroll player but for someone just jumping into the series, then maybe not the best option for you to start out at.
Just as good as any Devil May Cry gameDragosLoL | July 16, 2014 | Review of DmC: Devil May Cry
DMC is a revamp of the Devil May Cry series and does a amazing job. A lot of people complain that DMC "isn't" a Devil May Cry but don't let that bother you. If you hack n slash and killing demons, you'll definitely enjoy this. The story dives a bit deeper into dante's past than the previous games and gives him a more "human" view on things. There is a vast variety enemies available to kill and the bosses are extremely enjoyable. Each boss fight forces you to use the tools you unlocked for your demon blade and make you learn to combo them. The only drawback I have to the game is that the game is a bit "too short" in my opinion. But it makes up with DLC content, vergil's fall and Bloodly Palace, which is actually free. If you enjoy hack n slash, then you'll definitely like DMC even if you are a die hard Devil May Cry fan.
Fun, exciting, adventurous but....a bit overratedDragosLoL | July 16, 2014 | Review of Borderlands
Borderlands has become a popular game among FPS RPG fans but it wasn't what I expected everyone was saying it was. The game definitely holds onto its RPG standards with damage counters and skill trees but I felt really limited due to slow leveling and not enough enemies to grind in one zone before I moved onto a higher level zone. It kind of bored me out and the quests weren't as exciting since most of them were go collect this or go activate this beacon. Boss fights were fun though as it actually put a challenge in the game. But other than that, I wouldn't say this game is for RPG fans. I would recommend this game to anyone who's looking for a good FPS game but not the combination of two. If you don't like grinding exp, then probably not the game for you.
Amazing, Beautiful, just a Must HaveDragosLoL | July 16, 2014 | Review of Bastion
I enjoyed Bastion a lot. The narrative story can give you the chills and excitement of searching for each shard in each unique zone. The art style is beautiful too. You won't be able to take your eyes off each animation because of how interactive each artwork is. The combat style is fun too and challenging. Your loadout is a bit limited to 3 specific weapons at a time but each weapon is customizable using mods and combinations. The game also lets you customize your difficulty to your liking using the idol system. New Game + is a nice challenge too if you're up to it. I would recommend this game to anyone looking for a good and decent length game to enjoy.
Cool but a bit disappointingDragosLoL | July 16, 2014 | Review of Darksiders II
Darksiders 2 journeys into the story of Death, one of the four horsemen and his quest to free his brother War. If you've played Darksiders before, you should know the story. If you're new to Darksiders, then it might be a bit confusing. However, Darksiders 2 offers a vast adventure and puzzles to quest through. The only issue is that, there are TOO MANY puzzles. Darksiders 2 can get really repetitive and a lot of the puzzles start looking more similar after the last puzzle you've just completed. I sometimes got lost and confused which zone I was in because the puzzle environment looked so similar. I want to say that its predecessor had more variety in puzzles and challenges than this one. The storyline is long and gets tiring easily. NPCs will make you do quest after quest after quest until you just become lost and confused. Also it doesn't help that each environment doesn't have much variety compared to the other zones. The combat style though is fun and doesn't get bored easily. If you're a Hack n Slash fan, you'll enjoy this. But I would say get the game on sale, because it isn't really worth at full price.
Fun and CompetitiveDragosLoL | July 16, 2014 | Review of Counter Strike: Global Offensive
First of all, this isn't your "average FPS" such as CoD or Battlefield. CS:GO really brings competitve FPS to its glory. For someone just picking up the FPS genre and is competitive, then you might like this game. It's helpful to know each weapon and map strategies to dominate the game but if you're just playing for fun, casual modes are perfect. Also Valve is quite generous when it comes to in-game items. Sometimes you might get lucky and get a rare drop after a game or you can unlock a chest to get a cool gun, custom knife, or sticker for your loadout. Everything is fairly priced and for a great shooter, this game is pretty cheap. It might feel awkward but if you give this game a try, you won't regret buying it.
Challenging and Fun but....not as good as the firstDragosLoL | July 16, 2014 | Review of Dark Souls II (NA)
I love the dark souls/demon souls series. It's a long, difficult, and learning experience. Dark souls 2 does bring back some core elements of its predecessors but some of the changes really impact the gameplay in a slightly negative way. Firstly, I found the boss fights to be epic but.....not as challenging as dark souls 2. It probably took me average 5-6 min a boss because of how easily they were to read. Second, From Software nerfed some of the classes and made it "harder" to level up because the amount of souls required was at such a high scaling. Third and last, the game just doesn't have that "dark souls" feel. It feels like you're just browsing through free souls when killing enemies, rather than knowing that each enemy could kill you. If you're just stepping into the realm of dark souls, then you might enjoy this but if you're a hardcore dark souls fan, then unfortunately, you might be disappointed.
Not easy but FUNDragosLoL | July 16, 2014 | Review of Street Fighter X Tekken
Street Fighter x Tekken's gameplay style ties more closely to its brother, Street Fighter IV. However it's tag team system makes it unique and gives a sort of difficulty. You have to time everything carefully. Arcade mode is a lot of fun and I enjoyed playing through each duo's storylines. Challenges are helpful when it comes to learning each character and the move commands between tekken and street fighter characters is unique. However, when it comes to multilplayer on the PC, it's a bit disappointing. There aren't many players due to the PC port not being as popular and servers are kind of buggy and disconnects quite a bit. I wouldn't recommend this towards a tekken fan because of the gameplay style but if you're a big street fighter player and don't mind the tekken characters, this might be the game for you.
Fun for a few hours then...pure stupidDragosLoL | July 10, 2014 | Review of Goat Simulator
Goat Simulator will entertain you for a while with its stupid and crazy mods and environments but after a few hours, it really dies down. I attempted to 100% the current updates, doing the achievements and finding all the mods and easter eggs. But you start seeing the same things over and over again. Not to mention that the intentional bugs make you realize how terribly developed the game actually is. Plus, there isn't much variety in the steam workshop for this game. Most workshop mods are just skins and it's hard to dish out content because of how buggy this game is to work with. It's a fun game, don't get me wrong. It just won't last you more than a week.
You NEED a Controller!DragosLoL | April 1, 2014 | Review of NBA 2K14 (NA)
The PC port isn't too bad and one of the best sport games out there right now. But to really get immersed into the game on PC, you're going to need a controller to play it. Keyboard controllers are too clunky and not consistent. Using a controller makes it a lot easier to play. Other than that, the game is awesome.
