Rare fast paced shooter

Frypo | May 25, 2012 | Review of Nexuiz

Playing this game really reminds me of Quake. In the world of gaming there aren't many fast paced shooters making this one look fresh. But the small maps did make it difficult to play. This game will be hard for people who are used to sprint, use grenades, killstreaks because this game has completely different game mechanics and pace of gameplay. One great think about it is, it has still saved constant arcade gameplay fun like it was in Quake. And to make gameplay a little bit different there are these called "mutations" aka perks as you could call them. I like this new feature but at the same time I hate it because what was nice in Quake or the classic Nexuiz was equality in start of the round everyone had the default weapon and default armor,health. But seems like every game in our modern-times need to have perks,killstreaks or DLC what you need to pay for or people just won't play it. I would be very happy if they would just add HD graphics to classic Nexuiz but I understand that modern-time gamers have completely different wants how the game should look like. So in the end you can look at it from two sides. Comparing it to classic Nexuiz it's "so so",from the other side comparing to other modern shooters this one is really good and fresh. Making this game kinda good.

First time playing Batman's game

Frypo | May 24, 2012 | Review of Batman: Arkham Asylum

As you read from the title, this is first game what i have played from Batman series and i must admit this game is really impressive. First thing what I noticed was graphic design. Maybe graphics isn't most important part of the game but still it makes it look a lot better and it gave the right mood for dark and depressing asylum. First moments of the game, it introduces main plot of Batman capturing Joker. But Batman is suspicious, that joker surrendered this easily without a fight. After few minutes of boring walking things get out of control. Joker escapes and Batman seems have fallen perfectly in to his plan and Batman gets ambushed by few Joker henchmens. This was the first fight scene where i could test out fighting techniques and i was amazed how simple and at the same time challenging fight mechanic was. Fighting game without perfect fighting mechanic is like a bike without wheels, but it was nailed perfectly. One more thing that was introduced was "Detective Mode". Possibility to see trough walls humans, scan for evidence or hints. For "newbie" like me it was god's gift but in middle of the story seemed like game developers encourage to just use it all the time making mostly everything pretty predictable.Still it didn't trouble me to get in the story. It feels like you are part of the story. Most games don't manage you to care about the story but with Batman: Arkham Asylum it's otherwise. I'm really looking forward to play sequel Batman: Arkham City because this game is really amazing !

Call of Duty lost brother

Frypo | May 23, 2012 | Review of Gotham City Impostors

This game is absolutely like COD trippin' ! Why ? Because you won't see Cod being this colorful. This game is one of its kind. The Gadgets, fun facts,characters all makes this game completely different from all modern shooters. First round for a newbie maybe be kinda "rough" cause of all the high levels with more weapons and skill and utc. But after few rounds it all balances. One more great thing about GCI is community and the company who made this game, they are always listening to what their fanbase tells or asks. Still there are some overpowered weapons or gadgets, so instead of nerfing them down to complete useless, you have a way how to counterattack "Rocketspam" "Juggernaut". This feature makes gameplay unique. Whatever class you will choose, you will have strong sides and weak sides making you in need of your teammates. What makes me love this game so much is the way how they deal with over powered things, not nerfing them down but giving you ways to beat it. Overall making this one of the best 15 bucks spent on a game !
