Indie Noir.Furrek | April 18, 2016 | Review of Dark Years - PC
To be honest I didn't saw many noir games made by indie developers. Is that bad thing? Not really, it's a really hard work to do, at least I think so. What you could expect from a game like Dark Years isn't for sure great graphics - doesn't it matter? Not really. Animations aren't good either, but it doesn't matter too. I really loved the noir environment in this game. I loved how long this game is - heck, even AAA developers don't make games this long nowadays! Gameplay is solid, really nice mix of action and adventure game, where puzzles aren't annoying. Too bad it's not really known since it's really solid and probably one of most interesting indie games I have played in 2015. It's not perfect but it's really enjoyable. Something different in indie gaming where we don't get many games like that.
Decent RPG Maker game.Furrek | April 13, 2016 | Review of The Dark Stone of Mebara - PC
First of all, this game is called The Dark Stone from Mebara, not "The Dark Stone OF Mebara", I thought that's maybe a sequel or something but no :) So, it's a RPG Maker game. Yes, another one. Surprised that it looks not like your normal RPG Maker game? Well, I'm not, since there is DLC for it with graphics like that... but well, not like it does matter, what's important is how the game is. I like games where story is inspired by H.P. Lovecraft. I also like the music from this game. Like in many games maked in RPG Maker, you need to lick every corner but this time not to find some bonuses or treasures but to move along with story - that's the way detective stuff works. If you won't you will not make much progress, also the fights are little bit to difficult. But overall, it's a decent RPG Maker game, so if you don't mind that - try it.
A little bit "heavy" adventure.Furrek | April 11, 2016 | Review of Between Me and The Night - PC
Word adventure pretty much gives you positive vibe - like going on far away place, searching for treasure. Point and click adventure rather don't focus on "heavy" stuff such as in this one - paranoia, madness, bullying. You wouldn't probably tell Between Me and The Night is different because of rather innocent graphics, which looks beautiful and along with amazing music fits together perfect. Some of parts will make you feel nostalgic. You well feels also things that you usually don't while playing and having fun with games but that's alright. I love this kind of games and if you love adventure games, but you are looking for something different than your normal adventure game, this is a perfect game for you.
Pretty unique indie game.Furrek | April 11, 2016 | Review of All Guns On Deck - PC
We don't get many naval games nowadays. All Guns on Deck reminds me of some older game where we played as submarine. Is it any good? If you ask me, being real time tactics action rpg is pretty unique idea and it's worth checking. There are plenty of weapons you can use on your ship, plenty of places to visit. Graphics is really beautiful if you are fan of 2d works. If you ask me, it also reminds me a little of FTL - it's not so big and great but still an indie game which is worth checking. Even tho it's as for now still in early access, this game is in pretty playable state.
Childhood memories.Furrek | April 6, 2016 | Review of Fatty Bears Birthday Surprise - PC
I can say that this game is loved by two kind of people - first by kids. Why kids? It's "kids-friendly" game - game where kids can learn something, filled with no harm content such as blood but dreams and friendly stuff. The second kind of people would be players who played it years ago, as kids. It's really great nostalgia trip. Nowadays we don't get so many games like that - which can be count as adventure, as puzzle and some simply game filled with entertaining content. If you have a child and you are looking for something that can be enjoyed by them - Fatty Bear is ideal choice!
MOST AMAZING PACK EVER!Furrek | April 6, 2016 | Review of Worms Collection - PC
It's the whole and most amazing history told by Team 17. Starting from first Worms games, which is also very enjoyable after so many years, to almost most recent Worms Revolution. We don't have here only one big Worms war but also something with different vibe, like Worms Crazy Golf or Worms Blast, which are also great games. With this pack you can also experience Worms 3D / Mayhem, first and sadly last Worms adaptation to 3d environment. There isn't a single bad thing I can say about Worms Collection: it's history, it's unlimited hours of fun alone or with friends, on "hot seats" or multiplayer. This pack and every each of games included are worth every price, trust me.
It's not so bad.Furrek | April 6, 2016 | Review of Sword of Asumi Deluxe Edition - PC
It's filled with rather more good things than bad - I LOVED soundtrack! The story is also fine, it's more focused on that than on making just as cute as possible girls. It have many endings, both good and bad, rather good drawings - few of backgrounds looked really nice. Deluxe edition comes with fun to toy character creator and comic - which is also cool. I liked it a little bit more than mostly games from AJTilley. It's worth checking if you are fan of this genre of games.
Something different when it comes to VNs not from Japan.Furrek | April 6, 2016 | Review of Highschool Romance - PC
If you don't mind some gender-bender fun then read the rest of this review, if you hate all kind of "traps" then it's not a game for you. So besides that, it's different when it comes to art - finally a game which doesn't try so much to be similar to poor made Japanese art. Sadly, when it comes to game from AJTilley, it's also very short. I can't say for sure that I would pay whole price for a game I can complete in around 2 hours. If you want to check something rather unique then get Highschool Romance. But at least wait for some kind of promotion.
Have they done good job, Lara?Furrek | April 4, 2016 | Review of Tomb Raider VI The Angel of Darkness - PC
I will start from good things, and the best thing that happened to this part of Tomb Raider series is music - none of previous games with beautiful Lara Croft had soundtrack this much amazing. Puzzles, boss fights and RPG system for Lara is something that makes this amazing series more fresh. Atmosphere in this game is also nice but it's doesn't feel anymore like adventure thing. Still, enemies feel sometimes like they are too strong and can easily kill Lara, also level design aren't very interesting. The Angel of Darkness wasn't very successful and players weren't very pleasant about this game. Still, I think it's worth to give a chance. Maybe I didn't like it so much like previous Tomb Raider games but it was unique and fun experience.
You eihter love it or hate it.Furrek | April 4, 2016 | Review of Tomb Raider V Chronicles - PC
While I could praise every previous Tomb Raider games, there is something different when it comes to Chronicles. It's shorter, there are few shortter stories about Lara Croft. It's a good, or maybe bad thing, that we can learn something about Lara past? Well, it depened on players, that's why you either love it or just hate it. It doesn't have same great atmosphere of adventure, Mission Impossible like mission is kind of fun but at the same time - where are our tombs... ? For hardcore Lara Croft fans, it's a must play. If you are fan of game then you will like it too BUT if you expect something like previous games - I have a bad news for you. It's not like it's bad Tomb Raider game. It's just when it started to be something different than previous games. It's sure is at least worth to check out.
Lara should have travel here earlier!Furrek | April 4, 2016 | Review of Tomb Raider IV The Last Revelation - PC
Egypt! It is a place where you could do some artifact hunting! If I remember right, it was first Tomb Raider games which had rather decent scores in gaming magazines (at least in my country) but there was nothing more wrong, it's still good Tomb Raider game. We can finally travel back to earlier locations, there is also pretty new menu! And some varieties when it comes to moving forward, which means there are is not only one "right" way to follow. So far it's the TOmb Raider game with most levels and while some might be annoying, like tutorial one, that's pretty great number and will make many hours of playing to be great. And if you ask me, this is my second favorite Tomb Raider game due to locations it's set. Tomb Raider IV also looks a little better than previous games but now since it's quite old game, not that it really matters. Worth every price, that's how much fun this Tomb Raider game is.
Same fun with improvements!Furrek | March 30, 2016 | Review of Tomb Raider III - PC
By third Tomb Raider game there is not much change when it comes to gameplay. You will start to notice that game looks better than previous one: with better looking environment and special effects. Lara got also few new moves and she finally can crouch and crawl! There is also finally an option to save game anytime and how many times you want BUT for some people thats not a change for better. Why? You can save your game before anything that might look suspicious, any hard moments etc. Playstation version don't have that feature. Is that bad thing, or good? To be honest, you can play Tomb Raider game as always, without using this save option so I don't see anything wrong. It's fun to look around the world for pieces of mysterious artifact. If you enjoyed previous Tomb Raider games then you will enjoy this one too.
Even better than first one.Furrek | March 29, 2016 | Review of Tomb Raider II - PC
I remember 3 things about this Tomb Raider, which also are reasons why it's my favorite Tomb Raider game ever. First: Venice. How beatiful it was way in 1997... It was so fun to play on those levels and I could replay it all day long. Second: more moves for our beatiful woman. Sadly I can't name all of them but while playing you can notice and you can make more, even more gracefully moves. Third: Lara's house. Who didn't locked her butler in the freezer? I laught everytime I did that. Also, her house were a great place to explore too. You could also notice that Tomb Raider 2 is a little bit harder than last one but that's even better - the harder game is the more fun it brgins. If you never done it, fix it, buy and play Tomb Raider 2 too since it's really great game for very low price.
Start of really great adventure...Furrek | March 29, 2016 | Review of Tomb Raider I - PC
I remember back when it was avaible on first Playstation console, how much I loved this game... this atmosphere of great adventure, puzzles and danger avaiting on every single step. And this beatiful woman... who didn't fall in love with Lara Croft? It was most beatiful gaming female character so far, I even remember her photoshoots were in some "adult only" magazine. Really good times. It's way different from reboot Tomb Raider game and if you ask me, I think original is way more fun. There isn't enought words to describe how mysterious mix of all those things are and trying to look for way out of cave, to find something valuable or even simple medpack. I won't also forget fighting with wolfes, bear or SOMETHING MUCH BIGGER for the first time. It's must play for everyone, worth every price. Also, it doesn't have any problems with working on modern systems, at least I didn't had any trouble running it.
Must play for lovers of this genre!Furrek | March 21, 2016 | Review of Arslan The Warriors of Legend - PC
Ever heard or played Dynasty Warrior games? Do you watch anime? If you do, you will have double the fun! We don't have many games like that on PC - where you as Hero defeat over9000 enemies with few attacks. Doesn't sound fun? But it's really fun! And what's more, since we know how Koei ported previous of their games on PC: 60fps, graphics looks really nice and you can play on really high resolution! Maybe the campaign isn't really long but it's really well written. Also, "Musou" games have really much replayability so don't fear that you will get bored after day or two spending only on playing Arslan: The Warriors of Legend. Sure, maybe it's a little bit too expensive but well... that's AAA title, and a really good one. Like I mentioned in being: if you ever played and loved Dynasty Warrior games, and maybe you have watched anime titled same as this game - you will have tons of fun, worth even full price.
Puzzles that are fun!Furrek | March 17, 2016 | Review of Pixel Puzzles 2 Space - PC
Is there anybody who doesn't know about Pixel Puzzles now? There wrere so many games and I'm glad there is a next one, almost one year later compared to when the last one was released. This time we go to... space! Space themed puzzle? Can there be something more fun? Probably yes... but in term of puzzles, nope! Great background music, great artworks and fun minigame will keep you for many hours. We don't have many puzzles out on Steam, so show them some love and play them! You won't regret it.
Halloween special!Furrek | March 17, 2016 | Review of Costume Quest - PC
There are games that makes you feel like playing during only time at year. There are games that fills on Christmas aura, there are games that are great to play during summer... and yes, Costume Quest is this kind of game. Do you really need to play something scary on Halloween? NO! Why not play something that can be enjoyed by everyone? Something with good music, fun combat, with world filled with interesting characters? Something that have really enjoyable story! Costume Quest is great game. Not sure if I would enjoy it same if it wasn't Halloween but still, it a must play. If you will have some time free when Halloween comes, try it. I'm sure you won't regret it.
Just when you thought Gothic 3 was worst...Furrek | March 17, 2016 | Review of ArcaniA Gold Edition - PC
Maybe you don't know, but the full name of this game is ArcaniA: Gothic 4 and yes, it's another Gothic game. So, at start you must know, it's not Piranha Bytes game. It's made by Spellbound. No, they are not amateurs when it comes to making games - they made few really good ones. Still, I think maybe this series was too much for them... I can say that graphics aren't so bad, music is same, you can feel something like "yeah, it's a Gothic game" BUT... is it enough for a good Gothic game? Is it enough for good cRPG game? Not really. It's short, story isn't interesting, new characters doesn't have this magical Gothic aura around and you will forget about them really fast. It's also rather easy and isn't bug free, so it will really annoy you few times. Played it once and I won't probably go back to it. Kinda sad, and when you thought that Gothic 3 was already bad game, this one is much worse. If you won't treat Arcania like another Gothic game you might be able to enjoy it a little. Just remember to wait for some promotion since this game isn't worth full price.
Something unique.Furrek | March 15, 2016 | Review of The Guild 2 - PC
What would you say about mixing simulator game with strategy and RPG? Sound strange, but it's actually very unique and yes, that's The Guild 2. With fantastic setting on medieval age, very interesting game mechanics it's truly amazing experience. Still, if you are fan of previous game, you could feel like it's worse. Also, which is probably most annoying thing, this game is filled with bugs. You will also get many game crashes, so it can be really discouraging to play a game. If you want to try something different, something that you haven't played yet, try The Guild 2. While graphics and other stuff feel outdated, it's not really old game. Give it at least a try, it's worth it.
Beatiful adventure game.Furrek | March 15, 2016 | Review of The Vanishing of Ethan Carter - PC
I don't remember when there was adventure game which had so beatiful graphics. To the addition of amazing graphics there are kind of melancholic music. And what's more, it isn't the only features that feels like masterpiece - it's also STORY. Short but really enjoyable. Puzzles aren't hard, so they won't stop you at any point of game, so you wil lbe able to smoothly enjoy it from beggining to end. The Vanishing of Ethan Carter shows that adventure games can still surprise gamers with many things. You can't miss that. If you love adventure games then it's a must play for you.
Gotta go... fast?Furrek | March 8, 2016 | Review of Luna Sky - PC
What would happen in you could change something in popular game like Sonic? Like... change cute hedgehog with a girl and change cute world with modern looking one? Sounds strange, and it looks strange. The only thing that isn't strange is fact that it's an interesting idea. While you might not really like the graphics (it didn't fit in my taste too by the way), animations since those looks really decent, it's not really a bad title. Little overpriced in my opinion, so maybe some kind of promotions would be a good time when to grab it and try it. People who love Sonic clone games will be sure to fall in love with Luna Sky.
NONONONONO!Furrek | March 2, 2016 | Review of Tuk Ruk (1) - PC
What's the point on making a game with rather cute characters, levels and graphics overall, when it's so painful to play? This game only looks nice on screenshots but when you get to play it... it is something really bad. Controls are bad, design of levels are confusing and animations... probably there is nothing that I could say about gameplay which would be in favor. It's more frustrating game than fun. What's the point of making something like that? Don't waste your time and money. There are better action/puzzle platformers out there. Even for kids it's not a good game.
Modern Galaga clone.Furrek | March 2, 2016 | Review of Vortex Attack - PC
Clones of old games in new clothes are always a nice thing to see. Why, you ask? It's not only nostalgia thing - "yeah, it remind me of Galaga game!". It shows, not always but sometimes, a great love from makers. It's clear that they enjoyed Galaga at past and at some point maybe they thought "how about a similar game in modern style?" Vortex Attack is done really well. Like I said, not enjoy it only because of nostalgia but of simply fun - fun coming out only from gameplay. There are many levels, harder and easier, and many scores to beat, play alone or with friend, since it's also a great game to start up at parties.
Bag full of cuteness.Furrek | March 2, 2016 | Review of War of the Human Tanks Steam - PC
I really love style of this game. It's fun to see emotions and reactions of those funny little... cute... and... dangerous? Yes, don't be mistaken. It's a war, soldier! Tanks which look like girls? No problem. You might think it looks rather poor. You might have right but don't be deceived. Even tho it have this kind of style, this is a pretty solid game with amazing gameplay which will take away many hours from your life. I wouldn't say it's visual novel game mixed with strategy even tho there are many talks. Somehow it's also reminds me of some anime show, so if you are fan of these you will surely enjoy War of the Human Tanks to the fullest.
For hidden object fans.Furrek | March 2, 2016 | Review of Where Angels Cry Steam - PC
First thing I noticed while playing Where Angles Cry is pretty cool graphics. Also, characters animation looks great! I can't remember many hidden object games with this stuff so maybe that's why it grabbed my attention. The puzzles are fun, the story is pretty also rather interesting coming from a game in this genre. If you ask me, I think it's pretty much the best game Cateia Games made. Do you enjoy hidden object games? Then you must play. I'm not a big fan myself BUT still, I really enjoyed it, so it's also great for everyone.
More like experiment.Furrek | March 1, 2016 | Review of SUPERHOT - PC
I love the gameplay of SUPERHOT - thinking and making a next move is very fun in this game. I don't remember if there were a game like this ever, where times play normally only when you move. For this only idea I think greatly of this title. Even tho visually this doesn't look so great - with so little colors and how simply everything is, it's still great fun. There is just one thing that could stop people from buying this - PRICE. It's really expensive for around 2-2,5 hours of main game. Sure, there are challenges and endless mode, but i'd say SUPERHOT is more like experiment than some game. An expensive one also. I'd say it's better to wait for price drop or some promotions, -50/75% off at least. It's just not really worth the price and you will quickly get bored, even with those fantastic mechanics, after beating this game, not even extras will save that.
Not your typical Hitman game.Furrek | Feb. 24, 2016 | Review of Hitman GO - PC
Even tho it's mobile game, it's probably on of best I have ever played. As turnbased game, it does have this Hitman vibe you get from PC games. Graphics looks lovely, beating each of levels and challenges (like kill everyone or don't kill anybody) gives you many hours of simply fun. Still, simply fun doesn't mean it's just a simply game, because sometimes unlocking new levels will give you a real headache. Is that bad thing? I don't think so. If you are fan of Hitman series and don't mind a big change in gameplay, which actually gives some fresh air to Hitman games, you must play it. It's one of best from phones, not playable on PC. Sure, it's just launched and have some minor bugs but that doesn't matter. The price is also cool for content Hitman GO can offer.
Decent to hell.Furrek | Feb. 23, 2016 | Review of Highschool Possession - PC
While I love Visual Novel games and don't mind even those made by non-japanese people I REALLY HATE when there is job done bad. It's only 1,5-2 hours long yet it's so expensive. Characters are really bland, the story is rather boring and all is there left are girls in swimsuits. Sound nice? Not really. Character design is rather decent. Nothing that you will remember few days later after finishing this thing. Yes, it's really decent. And while asked "hey have you played Highschool Possession?" you will either say "dunno" or "yeah, might wanted to see what it is but nothing special". If you will feel like playing this "nothing special" go ahead but be sure to grab this one only while on sale, so you won't regret spending this much money in visual novel this short.
Play and LEARN!Furrek | Feb. 18, 2016 | Review of Type Rider - PC
I'm surprised to see nowadays game which bring not only quite good gameplay but also some education values. Type Rider looks nice, sounds nice and isn't really demanding from player. Still, this game is rather short - but at least filled with value stuff and gameplay which won't make you bored. While I was playing it I felt really relaxed. Even if at first it looks boring trust me, it's not, once you will try it you feel magic of this title. This game is worth even full price, hope there will be more games like this someday.
Naked survival fun.Furrek | Feb. 18, 2016 | Review of Rust - PC
You can see Rust isn't a game that can be enjoyed while playing alone. Sure, you can do it, but what's the point? Playing on some community servers is where real fun starts - because official ones look like that: plenty of naked people running away from plenty of armed people. Kinda not the point of survival game BUT that also can be fun in some way... anyway, joining some community servers is the real fun. When you starts together to hunt, to build your houses, to gather stuff. Finding a game like that would be hard, because there will be always someone who will destroy you stuff... kinda annoying but well, that's the fun coming out of multiplayer games. Don't get bound to your stuff, trust noone, hunt toxic server players - being good guy is fun but maybe you will take a dark side of the force... IN SHORT: MUST PLAY for every survival fans. Maybe there are no zombies but it's still great fun to play, even more if you will find yourself, or maybe you already have, some people who also enjoy playing this genre in your friend list.
Strangely fun.Furrek | Feb. 17, 2016 | Review of Sanctum Cavern DLC - PC
It's one of my fav maps from Sanctum: Map Pack 1. Why? It's so different from others. There you have few platforms which monsters are following, to the teleports, and from one to another... it's fun watching monsters to follow layers filled with towers (or not, if you enjoy to kill them by yourself). Maybe you also saw my review on Slums DLC for Sanctum, but if you haven't, let me tell you one thing - it's better to get a map pack instead of buying one map alone. It's better deal. It contains much more fun also. It's not bad deal for this kind of map BUT if you can have more for less... why not?
Limited Edition for fans only.Furrek | Feb. 17, 2016 | Review of Blades of Time Limited Edition - PC
So putting game aside, since I already made a review for normal version, I will focus only on Limited Edition stuff. To be honest, there is almost nothing that would be worth anything to someone who haven't really enjoyed this game. Sure, having OST, some artbook, DLC and few more things is really great idea but since it's nothing for free, you must think about it a little more. Getting this pack while having no idea about this game is no good, at least in my opinion. Maybe if you really love some bonus stuff then you could get it but if you are not, then skip this edition and get just normal one.
Strangely fun.Furrek | Feb. 16, 2016 | Review of Sanctum Cavern DLC - PC
It's one of my fav maps from Sanctum: Map Pack 1. Why? It's so different from others. There you have few platforms which monsters are following, to the teleports, and from one to another... it's fun watching monsters to follow layers filled with towers (or not, if you enjoy to kill them by yourself). Maybe you also saw my review on Slums DLC for Sanctum, but if you haven't, let me tell you one thing - it's better to get a map pack instead of buying one map alone. It's better deal. It contains much more fun also. It's not bad deal for this kind of map BUT if you can have more for less... why not?
Too small.Furrek | Feb. 16, 2016 | Review of Sanctum Slums DLC - PC
For some reason I enjoy playing on bigger maps in Sanctum - in a place where I can enjoy building my own maze, for example. So does that mean this map is bad? Nope, it's still enjoyable. Still, I have problem with just one thing - buying one map alone... nah, even if I love Sanctum I wouldn't recommend it to anybody. If you really enjoyed Sanctum then look around for map packs - not only there are more maps, but they are also cheaper (if you divine total price for each map). It's only good if you have some leftover money, which won't get you anything more.
Why mobile version, not original one?Furrek | Feb. 15, 2016 | Review of Z - PC
I think I can rate this as 50/50. It's really amazing stuff that old games are rereleased in remake versions BUT... yeah, there are always some buts. I should probably start with positive thing and being able to play once again this good old game on modern machines without (probably) any problems is cool. Old players will have some nostalgia attack and maybe there will be new players who will discover what really was "on top" many years ago. Saying something about the game itself would be rather pointless, since stuff like "TWENTY LEVELS FULL OF ROBOTS MAKING BOOM AND BANG WITH EACH OTHER" wouldn't grab many attention. If you are curious about old stuff just try it and play it - amazing atmosphere on every each of planet, accompanying by funny movie cutscenes and some strategy is what makes Z great. BUT since it's a mobile version, people will have negative attitude toward this game. They changed so many things, made some of them really annoying. They changed main menu for really ugly looking one - to be honest, it would fit for 90% of mobile games. You can't tell it's Z, there are big button everywhere and big annoying "X" in upper corner. And this "X" is also when cutscenes are playing. "Look at me, I'm just some poor mobile port", it's screaming on every move. UI also became something that's really annoying, and there is even stuff you won't probably notice since it's placed in very strange positions, like the number of units. Controlling you units is sometimes also hard. And, which is really important, where is multiplayer option? I guess since it's not in mobile version, because it wouldn't be made on mobile, we won't see it on PC. Really sad. Mobile edition didn't even get an extra missions or ZEditor. I got Z for cheap, so I'm not that much mad. Releasing once again a old version of Z, or some kind of REAL remake, would be amazing but hardly to pull. If you want to have it on Steam, if you want to get some nostalgia, if you really don't mind that's a mobile port - grab it. I had fun but not as much as I would have while playing the original version of Z.
Star Wars - Doom, Doom: Star Wars.Furrek | Feb. 15, 2016 | Review of STAR WARS Dark Forces - PC
Dark Forces wasn't my first Star Wars game. Played it for first time probably around Star Wars Episode 1 film premiere because it made to want to play everything with "Star Wars" in name. The only thing I was wondering when I will got lightsaber and have some cool Jedi fights but at the time, sadly, I was disappointed to see that I won't use one in this game. Many years later, in 2016, I wanted to replay it. To be honest, when it would be my first time playing, I would stop playing it few times. Why? First of all, nowaday gamers will have trouble finding their way to finish missions. Levels in Dark Forces are really complex. I laughted few times because I thought that finding a secret places in this game is much easier than finding actually your way trought mission and IT'S TRUE. Not that I hate it but let's be honest, how many games now have this much twisted level construction? Noone to very low... anyway, I love every each of levels. Those are filled with Star Wars - ever wanted to take a trip around Jabba's ship? No problem, there is mission like that! The next thing which really builds well this game are weapons - even tho there aren't any lightsabers, first weapons like blaster pistol or laser rifle are fun to use. Still, in my opinion, nothing beats Stouker Concussion Rifle - once you will get it you won't use any other weapon but be careful: it's powerful enough not only to kill enemies but poor Kyle Katarn too. Who is Kyle Katarn? Our main hero, former Imperial Stormtrooper, working as mercenary. Is he someone important? Well, because of his action there was some kind of event leading to "moon" destruction but for more you will need to play game by yourself. The graphics, music, controlls and everything feels really outdated but that doesn't mean it's bad. Years ago it was wonderful. Even the cutscenes looked amazing! As someone who loves to play old games it's still looks great but that won't be a case for everyone. I think everything gathered together builds a great Star Wars game. Sure, maybe you can't save game anytime you want like in Doom but levels aren't so long that you won't complete it at one sitting - there are some extras that will make your game a little more safe, so you won't need to start level at new when you will die. Three difficulty levels will also help you a bit to make your game fit to your taste but keep in mind, that even playing on easy won't be that easy. There is one more thing because of Star Wars being in Disney hands. "Is this canon? It's not canon anymore, right?" - does all of this talk really matter? Kyle Katarn is interesting character and it's fun to follow his story be it in games, books or comics. Dark Forces game is also fun to play, it will surely please every Star Wars fans, Doom-based games fans or everyone who just love old games. It's all that matters. I had fun playing Dark Forces and I'm sure there will be another chance to enjoy it over again.
Yet another bad clone.Furrek | Feb. 12, 2016 | Review of 3079 Block Action RPG - PC
There is a reason why almost every Minecraft clones games have a big "DON'T TOUCH" from me. These are really no fun. I mean, you can make clone game with stuff from Minecraft + added some "original" content but still it won't make a game fun to play. You just run around, doing same quest all the time and buy stuff. It gets boring after hour, maybe after two if you really want to try it so hard. Paying this much for a hour, up to two, game is wise idea? I don't think so. Also, noone of serious devs would put something like "steam trading cards" for key features. Even playing 3079 - Block Action RPG online is no fun at all. So don't waste your time and money on games like that. Even if you are hardcore Minecraft clone games fan you will have hard time getting into this game.
Not worth the price.Furrek | Feb. 11, 2016 | Review of Rainbow Six Siege Season Pass - PC
5% of extra renown it's almost nothing (you won't probably notice this 5%), extra challenges is not about the numbers of challenges you get to do per day but slots only (which means if you didn't completed one it will stack in these extra slots), for 600 credits you can get booster pack or skins, which isn't also really impressive. 7 day early access to new operators doesn't sound cool, maybe if you are really into R6 Siege and play it everyday, so you can enjoy it a little bit earlier than others. I still haven't figured out what "VIP PERKS" mean, like many other Siege players but still... if you ask me, it's only stuff for hardcore players. You won't need this season pass to fully enjoy the game and also, it's not pay to win stuff, so it's kind of cool. Buy only if you want to show your love for this game.
So far the best from AJTilley!Furrek | Feb. 11, 2016 | Review of Divine Slice of Life - PC
While the price is rather high and you get visual novel which can be completed in around 6 hours (NOT single playtime, keep that in mind), the story will leave sometimes you a thought that something is missing, I'd say it's probably the best I played from AJTilley. Finally a game where characters looks nice! Girls are pretty, which is important for a game from this genre. You no longer see some anomalies at their faces, like in few other games from this dev. Also the soundtrack really fits and makes a great mood, which sadly I can't say same about voice acting... keep in mind it's a censored version of game, since Steam doesn't like nudity. It's, in my opinion, the best visual novel coming from AJTilley, so I can recommend that one.
You can enjoy it on summerFurrek | Feb. 10, 2016 | Review of Beach Bounce - PC
First of all, you need to know that it's not completed game - there are 2 episodes out of 4 and when the others will be avaible? That's a really good question. Devs said that because of some difficulties, the other episodes will be added in remastered version, as free update for everyone who own this game. It's a good, or bad thing? I'm not sure - there is always possibility for devs to simply abandon game... so decide for yourself if you want to take a risk. About game, it's rather decent if you play it "off" season. Girls looks rather good, you will sure find yourself the one you will want as 'waifu'. The story is nothing that could surprise you, the music is "ok". I can't recommend this game at full price because of two things: like I said earlier, it's not completed game and sadly Steam version is censored. If you are in need of visual novet set in summer then you feel free to try it - for every other I would say to wait for remastered version of game.
Very decent.Furrek | Feb. 9, 2016 | Review of Echo Tokyo Intro - PC
Starting from the very basic thing in Visual Novel games, graphics, I didn't liked at all it. I mean, sure, there are one or two which looks decent (like the one you are looking at product page) but there are so many which looks like made by someone who have very little idea how to draw anything. I can say that backgrounds are rather OK but everything else... no. Story is short, getting to the end won't take longer than half of hour but at least it's not an expensive game. If you ask me, I think it's better to wait for main game to come out and then check "Intro" chapter. Indie devs nowadays loves to make some intro/part 1 etc. games and then not doing more anylonger. It's surely not a "must play" game so it would be rather easy to simply wait for more.
Decent for PC.Furrek | Feb. 3, 2016 | Review of Deus Ex The Fall - PC
At begin, if you are a hardcore fan of Deus Ex games you should probably skip this one - or play it on your smartphone in order to not be dissapoint. Compared to other games in series, The Fall is no good. But for something that was made for smarphones - yes, you can enjoy it. Everybody know it doesn't met with so many nowadays standards. That doesn't matter. Also, maybe I'm alone, but I think it's nice to see good smartphone games avaible also on PC, so even people with normal cellphones would be able to enjoy it. So, that's probably everything I can say is positive in Deus Ex: The Fall. I'm not fan of mobile gaming, it's good for little games, less for something more "serious". It's well made SMARTPHONE game, which surprised me few times. While I played The Fall, it reminded me with not so good fps games from many years ago. Yup, it was almost same. It's not a bad thing, a little nostalgia while playing something not so old. Sometimes AI acted foolish, boss fight (if you can call something at the end like this) felt like a joke and same goes for ending. What I really enjoyed were making takedowns, maybe because it's a Human Revolution things. Graphics, music, UI and many others are fine - for a SMARTPHONE game. It's rather decent if you would want to compare it to some PC games, even those 10+ years older than Deus Ex: The Fall. If you want it, get it on sale, or maybe on your phone (if you have a powerful one), so you will have your little Deus Ex universe in your pocket. There is no harm in giving it a chance but you need to be rather prepared to be dissapointed with this one.
Rather bad due to bugs.Furrek | Feb. 3, 2016 | Review of Damnation - PC
Imagine a mix of Gears of War and Prince of Persia in steampunk setting. Sound great, huh? That what I was expecting from Damnation. It tried. Very hard. But sadly, failed. Probably enjoyed it a little only because of co-op option, so if you are looking for just a game to play with someone, you can try it. Still, you will have more fun seeing how buggy and bad this game is. There will be characters which will be stuck somewhere - like "bad guy" running in front of wall for some reason, or somebody from your team shooting also in wall. It happens but most annoying thing is when you fall down from some really high place, or you will land outside a game territory AND you will spawn in same place... oh god. I can't remember how many times I needed to start over because I was running underground, or landed in some strange place which was marked as my new spawnpoint, where I could move an inch in any direction. If only this stuff could be fixed, it would be much better game. I mean, story is rather dull, nothing special on graphics/music but it was kinda fun running, finding your way, jumping from one place to another. And co-op option is what made it double fun. I wouldn't mind to see someday another game like that but only POLISHED one, where bugs and stuff doesn't annoy you every few minutes. Sadly, I can't recommend this game.
Not bad but Sisters in 2D are better.Furrek | Feb. 2, 2016 | Review of Giana Sisters Twisted Dreams - PC
I spent many hours playing original Giana Sisters. It was great game! I remember when they announced, if I'm not mistaken, a sequel for Nintendo DS. Oh boy. It was one of my favorite NDS games ever. Completed few times and even done a speedrun. Truly amazing game. When I saw another Giana Sisters game I was really happy. It feels really like Giana Sisters need more love. So, how is this game? It's a hard question. I enjoyed it for a while but not as much as this 2D remake or another game that was made on NDS. It missing something since Giana Sisters went into 3D. Sure, the world is beatiful, characters cute as always, and I love this soundtrack that gives you nostalgia vibe but... ... you know, well made 2D graphics looks much better. That's why I loved Giana Sisters DS. Level designs in Twisted Dreams are also kinda boring - it doens't make you want to explore every corner of level. Even tho I love hard platformer games Giana Sisters had few really annoying moments. Maybe it's just me, but few levels were way too long - it would be nice to have twice as many level even if they were cutted in half. Dream Rush mode is kinda confusing at first but overall it's also enjoyable. The most popular game is also, in my opinion, the most boring one. It's not bad game but doesn't bring so many happiness as it was with previous two. Playing it more than one time can be really boring.
How to make bad TD game.Furrek | Feb. 2, 2016 | Review of Two Worlds II Castle Defense Steam - PC
For some reason I thought you don't need much to make a good Tower Defense game. How WRONG I was... or maybe devs just doesn't understand the idea of this genre. Two Worlds II: Castle Defense is BORING. There is not much strategy you can use, Units are dull, skills are rather useless, maps are small and not a well planned for a game in this genre. I'm not sure if there is even any music when you are playing, all I heard were screams. Also, it's very short, with almost no replayability, which is a great loss for a Tower Defense game. Sure, there is thing or two I liked in this game. Like, teleportation between units. What's more... oops, that's all. There isn't more good thing I can say about this game. Can't recommend it to anyone. Don't start your adventure with TD genre with this game - it will ruin your fun with this genre. I wouldn't even say to try it out to people who are familiar with this genre because of how boring it is. It would be a different if it was some bonus thing for beating Two World II main game. Something you get for free, but for this price? Sorry, it's not even worth full price, half of it, and even one dollar. Two Worlds II: Castle Defense is worst Tower Defense game I have ever played.
Running fun.Furrek | Feb. 2, 2016 | Review of TEC 3001 - PC
It's really simply - you just run, as fast as you can (and sometimes as slow as you can), collect batteries and reach ends of level. It's not just running: there are level when you are flying and spend most of your time jumping from place to place. Start easy but later you will find some really annoying levels: like there is one with over9000 platforms forming stairs, or place where you will really calculate your jump because if you won't, you will simply fall. How fast is this game? Really fast. Like, imagine you are running the fastest you can BUT there is more. You can use something like turbo, which will make you run even faster - for a short time but nothing stops you from spamming up arrow. There are only two things I can have some complains - desing looks rather dull, even with thing that changes color of surroundings but that's just my opinion, maybe someone fill find it more fitting for a game like T.E.C. 3001. Another thing is issue with achievements - they are unlocked only once, when you will close your game. It's really minor, so if you don't really care about time which you unlocked each achievement, then there is no problem. It's fun game, as long as you like to simply run. If you get bored with playing levels, you can always try local multiplayer (friends needed, but there is nothing that can stop you from trying to play as both players alone) or marathon, which is most fun part of game. T.E.C. 3001 is cheap game, so you will pay not so much at sales, and I think it's worth this price.
For platformers fans only.Furrek | Feb. 2, 2016 | Review of Hell Yeah - PC
In short: if you are fan of platformer games and play everything from this genre, then you can't skip Hell Yeah! Wrath of the Dead Rabbit. But if you are not then you should look for another platformer. I didn't had any troubles with this game. I love platform games so it was kind of must play for me. It's not short, have few great moments and funny monster finishers. Hell Yeah! is packed with beatiful colors and tons of blood. Sometimes you feel overwhelmed with designs of maps but quick look at map solve everything. Besides a game there is also island where beaten bosses work for your. I like this idea but to be honest, I went there once or twice... only because there is achievement for doing it. Too bad it's just a game for one time. I don't think so after beating and unlocking everything I will ever back to it. There is also DLC for more missions but I'm not sure if it's worth getting. I can't say it's a bad game... So like I said earlier: Hell Yeah! Wrath of the Dead Rabbit is for platformer games fans only. I doubt anyone else will enjoy it in 100%.
Great from RPG Maker!Furrek | Feb. 1, 2016 | Review of Always Sometimes Monsters - PC
Must play for people who are sick with RPG Maker games in fantasy setting and for people who thinks every RPG Maker game is bad. Personally I don't care how game was made - if it's engine written from begin to end by devs or any version of RPG Maker, all of this is not important. What really matter is content and Always Sometimes Monsters doesn't fail in that matter. What is this game about? In short: it's about player, which means you. Every choice brings consequences. How the story will go and how will it end - it depend only on you and what you would do in some situations. It's not some kind of epic story, it's not also some masterpiece that will leave you speechless while playing or ending it - it's just a nice game full of things that might give you some thoughts, or not, and you will think it's trying to be something more than it is. There is a demo version of game, so give it a try and decide for yourself if you want to continue this story or not. I don't regret time spending playing Always Sometimes Monsters. In fact, I would gladly play more story-driven games.
Interesting idea.Furrek | Jan. 28, 2016 | Review of Castle Steam - PC
Probably many of us dreamed at least once about building castle. Well, now you can do it. Sure, as you can see, graphics aren't the 3d ones, so you won't be able to get something amazing but to be honest, building Castle (building) in Castle (game name) with rather cute graphics is fun! As you can imagine, building a Castle isn't easy job, so even levels in game are rather hard to finish! Music fits perfectly for a game like this. In my opinion, it's good INDIE game. Keep in mind, you can expect it to be like AAA games, so for an indie game, it's good. Cool stuff to spend few hours and have a really nice time.
No multi - much less fun.Furrek | Jan. 28, 2016 | Review of Chompy Chomp Chomp Steam - PC
I believe you can have a little fun with this game on some kind of party with friends, or maybe with siblings... but that's all. It quickly become boring to play this game, there is almost no content for single player - sure, you can play with bots, but that's just not fun, and Arcade mode is short and easy. Maybe if Chompy Chomp Chomp had online multiplayer this could be a better game, but without it, it's not. I have waited for long time to dev to make some action but if he doesn't then, why would he bother now... buy only if you plan to play it with your real friends.
Old and great.Furrek | Jan. 27, 2016 | Review of Blood One Unit Whole Blood - PC
Monolith. What is Monolith? Why did I use it as first word in my review? Well, it's very important. Blood was first game Monolith ever made. You should remember this name because they made many great games. So, about Blood. Amazing atmosphere is first thing you will feel when playing it. Like you can guess, it's full of blood, and sick ideas - really, eevs nowadays wouldn't ever thought about making some of stuff included in Blood. Also Caleb, main character, is awesome - very memorable one if you ask me, like Duke Nukem. Nowadays we don't get very memorable characters, only some random guys or "you are the main hero" stuff. Like many old games, it's rather hard while playing it for first time. Very good soundtrack, design of levels, weapons (voodoo doll for the win!) and stuff I mentioned will make your adventure with Blood unforgetable one. If you want to taste "the best" of old games this is a great game to do it.
This is how Gothic 3 game should be made.Furrek | Jan. 25, 2016 | Review of Risen 2015 - PC
http://steamcommunity.com/id/furrek/recommended/40300 This is my review for Risen game which I posted on Steam: This is how Gothic 3 game should be made. Risen feels more like Gothic game than Gothic 3 will ever do. I love Pyranha Bytes games. The third Gothic game maybe disappointed me a little but what they did with Risen game... wow. It feels so much like first Gothic game. I felt once again like a kid playing first Gothic game when it was out. It's simply amazing. Great atmosphere, great soundtrack, great graphics and open world which you want to explore. The story is fits fine for RPG game, characters and their stories are interesting and once again, you will need to decide whose fraction you will join. While fighting you feel respect towards monsters - you might know that from Gothic games but if you don't: one wrong move and you can lose your life. It starts rather easy, with a chance to encounter a "run for your life" monster and ends at "I want to run away from these dangerous beasts but I have no choice and I must fight it". If I can complaing about something... ... yes, there are things in this almost perfect RPG game I didn't like much. Most annoying thing which made me start game again and again was jumping on platforms and climbing - I'M NOT SURE WHAT I'M DOING WRONG, BUT WHY IS MY HERO FLYING TOWARDS SKY AND NOT COMING BACK, BUGGING WHOLE MENU. THE ONLY WAY TO FIX IT WAS TO EXIT GAME, START IT AGAIN AND LOAD LAST SAVE. Much later at game I bought over9000 levitation scrolls to avoid this annoying bug. While bugs are bugs, Risen have one thing which I'm really disappointed at. Like I said earlier, characters and their stories are interesting but they don't really feel anything towards main character. I didn't feel any friendships at all, nobody I could count on, nobody I could remember this much like some of first Gothic characters - and it's not only limited to friends, but enemies too. Maybe it's only me, maybe it's because I played this way not another.... dunno. Spending almost 50 hours in Risen and finishing it for the first time, I feel like there are still many things I left not finished and not discovered. Risen's world is big one, and playing a fine RPG game like this only once is really waste. There are also in game achievements, which can also count as reason to play Risen after beating game. I know I will be back one day to Risen and enjoy it like for the first time. Or maybe even more.
Remind me of Resident Evil games.Furrek | Jan. 21, 2016 | Review of Alone in the Dark The New Nightmare - PC
Which is actually a really good thing! First of all, you have two playable characters, so it's pretty similar to RE1 and RE2. The number of bullets you will find is also very small, so as you can guess, that's another RE-like thing. Amazing soundtrack which builds really scary atmosphere... yes, this is truly a survival horror game! So, leaving similarities aside, it's the last good Alone in the Dark game. The story itself is very dark and makes you really want to know how it all will end. Even with few annoying things, like playing in lower resolution, it doesn't throw you away for playing it. If you are fan of survival horror games then you must play it. It's really great game and trust me, it will make you jump from your sit few times...
Bad port.Furrek | Jan. 20, 2016 | Review of Alone in the Dark - PC
While Alone in the Dark (2008) is not so bad game, the port is just terrible. I mean, controls are really bad and annoying - you will have really hard time playing it and on some moments, like driving, will "drive" you mad. Options menu is also bugged, so it WILL crash your game, trust me. it's really bad. Want to play it with your controller, not keyboard+mouse? Too bad, you won't be able to. You will probably also have a trouble putting a game in higher resolution - many people have a trouble with that, since their game simply crash... That's really too bad, since like I said, it's not a bad game. Sure, it's much worse than original Alone in the Dark games, but for an action game it's rather cool. Too bad that devs and/or publisher didn't care about releasing a polished game - it could sell better, have better opinions and much more. Too bad, since Alone in the Dark is a franchise which I really like... Get it at your own risk.
Well done RPG Maker game!Furrek | Jan. 19, 2016 | Review of 8Bit Adventures The Forgotten Journey Remastered Edition Steam - PC
Even tho it's not a longest RPG Maker out there, it's a game where you can spend few hours and actually have a great time playing RPG Maker game. This game looks like it could be a great title from time when first Final Fantasy games was released. It have this magical nostalgia-like feeling which is amazing. Also, retro music sounds great. What's also important for RPG game, it have really interesting story along with interesting characters. It also have few more challenging moments, as expected from RPG game. 8-Bit Adventures: The Forgotten Journey is a truly trip for a good, old school adventure. Get it, if you doesn't want to miss something really good.
One of most fun board games on Steam.Furrek | Jan. 19, 2016 | Review of 100 Orange Juice Steam - PC
Don't mind the style. Don't mind about characters, which are from other Orange_Juice games, which most of people just don't know. Don't mind about story. You don't need all of that to enjoy this game. What is most important in board games is fun and 100% Orange Juice is really fun. Sure, it's simply, but isn't that even more amazing, to made something this addicting from very simple idea? Also, you don't have to worry about playerbase - there are plenty of people who are in love with 100% Orange Juice game. There is always someone to play with together, so even if you don't have somebody who would play board games with you - have no fear, you will quickly find players. I also love how you can win each of games by playing passive - by gathering stars, or aggresive - by defeating players. If you are fan of board games, you must at least try it. It will be worth for this low price.
I know this feel.Furrek | Jan. 15, 2016 | Review of Ancient Space - PC
WHen I started and played Ancient Space for a while I had this feeling that I played something like that already... yup, it have this Homeworld 2 aura. Even music have this Homeworld 2 feeling, which means it's really good. So, for a strategy game which take place up there... I must say, it's pretty good. You can complain about units which are harder to notice on some backgrounds and there are some graphics that looks like from some old games but that's all. Oh, and system requirements are pretty harsh so be sure you own a powerful PC. If you enjoy this kind of games I'm sure you will enjoy Ancient Space too.
Somehow not loved when it was released.Furrek | Jan. 14, 2016 | Review of Aquanox - PC
I don't remember people talking much about this game. To be honest, even I didn't completed it even after many years. Still, that doesn't mean this game is bad, no. It's really good. With interesting story, nice mix of rpg and simulation game, with graphics that was really great looking back in time. There was just one thing that could keep away people from this - movement. It's not the easy one, even it's kind of not normal, but once you get used to it you will truly enjoy this game. If you enjoy games which take places in unusual environments, like underwater in this one, then you will love it. Give it at least a try.
Same decent fun af prequel.Furrek | Jan. 13, 2016 | Review of Blades of Time - PC
Even thought Blades of Time have more beatiful graphics than prequel, X-Blades, it still doen't bring more fun. Even thought the main heroine looks even more beatiful, it still doesn't bring more fun than prequel. So, in short, it's still a decent game. A poor's man Devil May Cry and similar games. It starts fun and get boring as you get to the end. I would have really hard time playing it once again. I'd say I enjoyed it same as X-Blades, no more but I would recommend everyone to at least try it, since you might enjoy it much more than I did.
Hard to start.Furrek | Oct. 13, 2015 | Review of Blood Bowl Legendary Edition - PC
When I first time saw this game I thought "what the, blizzard made sports game within warcraft universe?". It looked fantastic and it really is. With so many different races, turn or real time mode, every each of game is different. THe only thing I had, and probably many of players, is how to get into this game. You will probably have to look up at online guides to get and remember everything. Is that a minus of game_ Not reallz. Manz great games need some time to learn stuff and Blood Bowl is this kind of game. Once you will learn everything, you will have a great time. It's really unusual game and it's really fun.
As game goes it's gets better.Furrek | Oct. 13, 2015 | Review of Dark Void - PC
Don't be afraid to play it for few minutes more. It starts as a really decent game but as it goes, it's gets much, MUCH better. Maybe the story isn't so great but some gameplay mechanics are awesome. Like using jetpack. It was probably my favorite thing in this game. Some of locations in game are also very interesting. Sadly, this game have also "minuses". Like I said, you need to spend some time to get to interesting parts. There aren't many enemies, and kinda outdated game engine makes you think that it could have been done better. Still, it sure is worth giving a try. You will surprised, I'm sure of it.
Less than in previous map pack.Furrek | Oct. 8, 2015 | Review of Sanctum Map Pack 2 - PC
25% less maps than in first map pack. Sounds rather bad, doesn't it? Have no fear, it's not so bad. I mean, even tho the price is same, it's another must have for Sanctum fans. I really loved Invasion map in this one and this alone made me happy with this map pack. It's more challenging than previous map pack, so it's more fnu, at least for me. Sure, it doesn't sound like you get much stuff for this price but trust me, Tower Defense games doesn't need many maps - as long as they are well made you will be able to spend many hours fighting with next waves full of enemies.
Not big pack but great replayability.Furrek | Oct. 7, 2015 | Review of Sanctum Map Pack 1 - PC
Not big pack but great replayability. Four more maps mean another great time. In my opinion these maps are more easy than these included in main game but are still worth buying. In Sanctum case, there don't need to be many maps. It's Tower Defense game. You can play on many difficult levels and also on this unlimited waves (or whatever it's called) where you will spend many hours. Not sure if I can recommend it to new players, but if you really enjoyed Sanctum and want more - get it. You won't regret it. What can go wrong with simple map pack? It's good.
Must play.Furrek | Oct. 6, 2015 | Review of Aliens vs Predator Classic 2000 - PC
Why must play? Well, if you are fan of series then it's a best game focused on Aliens/Predator. If you enjoy FPS games in general, you will also love it. We don't have now this kind of shooters. With much and very fast action but also with difficult level that will kill you if you only try to play it braindead (run forward and shoot). Just be sure to play it with Redux mod - both new and "old" players. There are so many improvements that you will make this experience even better: with every single model replaced with high detailed one, expanded maps for single player and new ones for skirmish/multiplayer. Truly a godlike mod. To be honest, even without this mod games is great. For a price this low you must at least check it.
4X greatnessFurrek | Oct. 1, 2015 | Review of Galactic Civilizations III - PC
To truly enjoy Galactic Civilizations III you must love 4X. Without love for it, it's really a gamble and hard to tell if anybody else will enjoy this kind of game. But anyway, this game is far more advanced than previous Galactic Civilizations games. With very interesting campaign, great climate of cosmos, amazing soundtrack, HUGE maps and the number of civilizations you can have in one game... it's simply amazing. There is one more thing that was missing in older Galactic Civilization games but was made in number 3 and it's... yes, MULTIPLAYER. The price for now it's rather huge, so I think it's a buy for now only for huge 4X or Galactiv Civilization fans. If there will be some discounts and you are curious about it- why not. The amount of time you will spend in this one will be sure huge, so you don't have to worry about it. Keep in mind also system requirements since it can cause a little lag even on powerful PCs.
Good as sci-fi shooter.Furrek | Sept. 30, 2015 | Review of Alien Rage - PC
Played demo version which I enjoyed so decided to give a try to full version. How was it? Pretty good I must say. While playing I got this oldschool feeling - the way you fight with bosses and how hard this game can be. Don't get me wrong - I haven't played on most hard difficult level so I must say it's pretty good challenge. Graphics looks great, killing enemies is also fun. Even tho story is rather decent, it's still enjoyable. For a game with sci-fi setting - I must say it's rather good. There was few time when I had fps drops because of game, and had decent fun with multiplayer (trust me, finding a multiplayer game in this one is really annoying...) but that's all. If you want to enjoy some shooting in sci-fi themed game, get Alien Rage.
High standard of lego games.Furrek | Sept. 29, 2015 | Review of LEGO Star Wars III The Clone Wars - PC
For starters, don't read any more of this and other reviews if you love Star Wars or/and LEGO. It goes without saying that it's another great LEGO game. So if you ever enjoyed other, just get it and have fun. Wanna know something more? Sure. LEGO Star Wars III - The Clone Wars have few things that, included in previous Star Wars LEGO games, would make them the best games ever. I mean, The Clone Wars have character AND LEVEL EDITOR. Yup, you can make your own levels. What does it mean? Unlimited fun. The saber fights are even more amazing, graphics looks better and, what is also important, the system requirements didn't go up so much - you will play it well on rather old PCs and gaming laptops. The only thing some people can complain about is that game is not based on Star Wars movies. But that's all. If you don't mind, don't think about it and buy it. Alone or with friends, it's great and fun game to play.
The wait was long... way too long.Furrek | Sept. 28, 2015 | Review of Duke Nukem Forever - PC
The first time I heard about Duke Nukem Forever was way before 2000. I read about it in some games magazine and, oh boy - I WAS REALLY WAITING FOR THIS GAME. No wonder, since Duke Nukem 3D was really great, but not as much as platformer games. Anyway, years was passing and there was only bad news... people was sure that it won't be released and, in 2010, there was info on PAX EAST. Finally game was released in 2011, 14 YEARS after first announcement. Was the waiting worth it? Sadly, I don't think so. Don't get me wrong - it's not bad game. Duke Nukem fans will enjoy it. But after so long time we got something that doesn't look like everybody expected it to be. If you never played Duke Nukem games, then be sure to not start with this part. You won't enjoy it at all. If you aren't fan of this franchise, then you can expect nothing more than decent shooter game. Only hardcore fans will enjoy it to the fullest.
Amazing (and now uncensored) adventure game!Furrek | Sept. 24, 2015 | Review of Fahrenheit Indigo Prophecy Remastered - PC
Pay no attention to graphics - even when this game was released it didn't look great. Still, it's not a game where it is important. It wouldn't be a exaggeration to call story in this game a masterpiece. The story keeps you in suspense from beginning to the end. It have really hard atmosphere and sometimes it makes you think about things. Beside story, there are many interesting stuff in gameplay. You will probably also fall in love with music. Trust me, if you love adventure games Fahrenheit will score high in your book. Also, due to being remastered edition, it's fully uncensored: not like before it was censored because of... I will let you discover that by yourself ;) Even if this game have few flaws you won't notice it.
The history of best online games.Furrek | Sept. 21, 2015 | Review of Counter Strike Complete - PC
Every gamer knows this game. Probably most of them played at least once some Counter Strike game. Here you have it - the only and best CS pack ever. It serves not only as little history lesson, since we have here every Counter Strike game made by Valve, but only as something to catch up with nowadays popular online games. You will be surprised how simply formula worked for so many years. Sure, the first Counter Strike games aren't so popular now and to be honest can be played out of curiosity, but this pack have also newest Counter Strike: Global Offensive. You want find better online action game than this. Heck, even TF2 is now less popular and have less players than CS:GO. If you want to play something really fun online, if you want to earn few cents with Steam (CS:GO drop system), if you want to play something with your group of friends - you can't go wrong with this pack.
Outdated pack.Furrek | Sept. 16, 2015 | Review of Source Multiplayer Pack - PC
Most of gamers love Valve games. I love them too. And it's kinda sad for me to write rather negative review. Why? These games are outdated. I mean, how many years it was since HL2 Deathmatch or CS Source was out? We have, from Valve: TF2, next CS (CS:GO), DOTA games which people play mostly. It will be really hard to jump into games where only veterans and old players stayed - which means new players will have really hard time. Sure, you can always buy this pack out of curiosity - to see how multiplayer games were few years ago. Or maybe if you have a big group of friend who would love to spend some time with older games. Sadly, if you alone planning to buy it and play it - you might regret it. With each next month the number of active players is getting lower. It's kind of shame but it's bound to happen with almost every online game. This low rating is only because of numbers of active and new players in those games. I would love to give it 100/100 but I just can't. So please, decide for yourself if you want to get multiplayer games with low number of players or not.
Play for single only.Furrek | Sept. 15, 2015 | Review of Tomb Raider overflow 4 - PC
Because of nowadays trends, almost every game must have multiplayer mode... even when it's not needed. It's same in new (old) Tomb Raider game. If you ask me, that's almost all bad what I can say about new Tomb Raider. Well, maybe there is one more thing - it's not same as old TR games, which I loved even more than this new one. So, how is it? It's amazing. I would love to have this kind of reboot for every old game. Story is nice, world is interesting, beautiful graphics (and of course Lara!) with amazing climate. Even tho I'm not fan of QTE those were rather good in this game. Sure, it's also not so long, but for nowadays single player games it's normal. Since this TR game was so good I can't wait for another one. Hope it will be same, or even better. If you never played old Tomb Raider games, it doesn't matter. Since it's "restart" of series, it's a good thing to start your adventure as Lara Croft with this one.
I miss this kind of games.Furrek | Sept. 10, 2015 | Review of Deus Ex Game of the Year Edition Steam - PC
You know, maybe you even remember. Lately we don't have much games with mixed genres, which would allow you to play YOUR WAY, from begin to the end. Sure, we had Human Revolution but in my opinion, original Deus Ex is the best. Even tho this game is already 15 years, don't have fancy graphics anymore but the story, music, different levels: with either calm walking around or filled with tons of enemies, amazing climate and more fun than most of today's games. You will be surprised how solid this game is. Classic games never dies and Deus Ex surely is this kind of game. Doesn't matter if you are not fan of old games - this is a must play and if you ever want to call yourself a gamer - you better play it before. Even players who picked up this game after so many years are really surprised and pleased how good it is.
Not bad spin-off.Furrek | Sept. 9, 2015 | Review of Alan Wakes American Nightmare - PC
If you loved the Strony in Alan Wake, then you won't find something similar here. Well, there is something, but that's all is excuse for some good killing. Music is amazing, visiting the same locations less. It's not expensive like main game because it doesn't deliver this much fun. Also, it's veeery short. I managed to beat it in around 4 hours and it probably can be beat in shorter time. It's not recommended to play it shortly after Alan Wake's main game because you will want more - and sure, there is more but it's nothing like you would expect it to be ;) If you never played Alan Wake game then stay away from this - it's only for the people who played it and know what's going on.
Dead multiplayer game.Furrek | Sept. 8, 2015 | Review of Evolve - PC
How to make something terrible to multiplayer game: release it at highly bad price and release DLCs worth twice as game at day one. Half of year ago the average number of active players in evolve was around 9k. Now, if there are 500 players in total it's good thing. Even with price drop, players aren't getting it. Promos? I didn't saw any big increase with number of players. Free weekend? Good for testing, but that's all. It will be much cheaper, or maybe even free to play in future. Why? Because it will be meaningless to keep a game with so low number of players. And sadly, Evolve isn't something great - there are better, cheaper and even free multiplayer games. Devs probably didn't thought about that at all. And sadly, making another tons of DLCs won't bring new players, it will only scary them. It's cancer of current gaming so stay away from it and don't support something like that.
Not scary, but still great horror.Furrek | Sept. 7, 2015 | Review of The Evil Within - PC
The level of how scary this game is similar to Resident Evil 4 - which means this game have at most 1-2 scenes, that's all. The only different is how gore The Evil Within is - and you can be sure, it is. I thought if maybe it's game from someone responsible for RE4, maybe we could get a truly horror game... but sadly, we didn't. Still, even tho it's not scary, it's great horror game. Starts really great and slowly gets boring but it's still one of best games I have played last year. Some people complain it's only console port but it doesn't looks so bad. This game have great climate, really amazing for late night sessions. It's not short game but also not hard AND, which is important, it's really enjoyable. If you haven't played The Evil Within yet, try it - it's one of best try at horror genre from past few years.
Haters gonna hate.Furrek | Sept. 2, 2015 | Review of Bad Rats - PC
I'm not kind of person who would love something while everyone hates it. I'm not kind of person who would hate something just because everybody is also hating this. I'm not kind of person who would make fun of game only because it's... bad. Like Bad Rats. It's rather poor made game. It's fit more for a flash game BUT... somehow we have almost no puzzle games with great graphics. Bad Rats isn't long game, isn't even so hard, but it is quite enjoyable for a puzzle game. For a low price like that, you could get it and have some fun. Don't expect much from it, but it's not so bad/great like everyone says. If you are hungry of puzzle games then maybe it will fill you at least a little.
Spin-off.Furrek | Sept. 2, 2015 | Review of Dirt Showdown - PC
Forget about realistic driving. Forget about simulator game. Be prepared for... showdown! I like the idea of spin-off games, which change so many things that it could have totally different title, but sometimes these aren't good. How is Dirt Showdown? Well, it's hard. I mean, it's fun for really short time. It's very easy and quickly gets boring. Sure, it's flashy, commentator is trying to be fun (but after few times you will notice it saying SAME THING ALL OVER AGAIN) and have few interesting modes, but that's all. If you are lover of racing games then maybe you would want to play it, just be prepared for something different, and sadly not better.
Codemasters at best!Furrek | Aug. 31, 2015 | Review of GRID Overflow 1 - PC
When I first time played GRID I knew one thing - I love racing games from Codemasters. It's really enjoyable racing simulator and probably will be loved by everyone who enjoys even a little bit this genre. So, we have great and realistic graphics, driving feel even more realistic and damage done to car when you bump with someone/something looks really nice. It's also much better than DIRT game. Online option works great and to be honest, it's probably one of most fun racing game you can play online. Well, at least that my opinion. If you want something great from racing games - get Grid.
Best game with ghosts ever.Furrek | Aug. 28, 2015 | Review of Ghost Master - PC
I remember when in 2k3 I didn't had a great PC so I wasn't able to play Ghost Master... well, I always wanted to play it since I knew about it from some PC magazine which highly judged it and, having fun with scaring people, was a greatest idea for game with ghosts ever. Few years later it was one of first games I played on new PC and wow... it was so great like they said. With more than 20 ghosts with like 150 different powers from simply moving objects, to changing temperature in room and making people to have hallucinations - what else you could wish for? I know for sure - this is one of most fun PC games and I'm still waiting, even after so many years, for sequel. If you somehow missed gold age of PC gaming you must buy it and play it, there won't be regret.
Diablo 3 wannabe game.Furrek | Aug. 20, 2015 | Review of Sacred 3 2015 - PC
I enjoyed first Sacred game. The second one in my opinion wasn't so cool but still, it was good RPG game. As for Sacred 3... god, why. Who thought it will be good idea to change what was the best in Sacred series? While I was playing Sacred 3 I felt like playing some cheap wannabe Diablo 3 game. Sure, graphics looks nice, fighting is also cool but it shouldn't be named Sacred game. I was bored even while playing in co-op, and playing this alone would be hell. I'm sure I won't recommend this game to anyone who know about Sacred games. It's blasphemy! I tried to like it, but in the end I will probably hate it forever...
Funny RPG game.Furrek | Aug. 20, 2015 | Review of The Bards Tale (3) - PC
Even thought The Bard's Tale have almost nothing common with classic The Bard's Tale (1, 2, 3) games, it's an amazing game. Some of you might know that it was first out on consoles. InXile Entertainment did great job porting it on PCs and playing it on mouse+keyboard feels good. Graphics doesn't looks so great after so many years but that's not important. What's most amazing, this game is FILLED with humour. There are in game so many great moments that will keep you laugh from start to end. Also, great songs! I will never forget beer song. To be honest I didn't say anything about RPG elements but that's how this game should be - it's a funny tale, maybe it's not best RPG around but the most funny one - for sure. If you are looking for good laugh or want to play somehow different RPG game - get The Bard's Tale!
Great mix of genres!Furrek | Aug. 13, 2015 | Review of Call of Cthulhu Dark Corners of the Earth - PC
Lots of action. Lots of horror. Lots of adventure, and lots of sneaking around. Lots of puzzles. I don't remember when was last time when I played game which could offer so many genres, so many different gameplays. What even more amazing, Call of Cthulhu: Dark Corners of the Earth have amazing atmosphere. There are few moments which I will probably never forget and will scary me even after playing it one more time. Each of chapter is rather long, so it's not a short game, but have no fear - it's fun in 100%. If you are looking for something with great atmosphere, probably unforgettable one, this game is great choice. For this price, you can't get a better single player game.
Very little multiplayer fun.Furrek | Aug. 13, 2015 | Review of Brink Bethesda - PC
From the makers of famous Enemy Territory, you should expect many things. And they, at some point, deliver really good game. It's much more complex than ET game. It's so many options for weapons, skills and we are responsible how we will lead our character. This game lacks two things - better stability (even at great PCs it can works sometimes bad) and... some more fun. I would love to spend another 1000+ hours in ET but Brink... well, it's not the same feeling you got while playing Brink. You can also see there aren't many people playing it, so it can be sometimes hard to find any people to play with together. It's hard to say, but few free to play games are much better... Maybe if you got bored with free to play games, you can try Brink out.
Very decent compared to previous Quake games.Furrek | Aug. 11, 2015 | Review of Quake IV - PC
First of all, this game aged really bad. I mean, even tho it's almost 10 years since Quake 4 was released, it's gameplay is much worse than for much older games. Every Quake game had something unique - sadly, Quake 4 is missing something which would make it unique. It doesn't feel like Quake game at all. Sure, it looks nice (graphics in Q4 are similiar to graphics in Doom 3) but that's all. Story is at most decent, there are annoying AI companions, and it's rather short. If you want to play something amazing then play Quake 1 and 2. If you are looking for great multiplayer game then get yourself Quake 3. Sadly, Quake 4 have rather boring single player and multiplayer mode. Also, there will be hardly any players to play with together.
Sick and fun.Furrek | Aug. 11, 2015 | Review of POSTAL 2 - PC
Guys from Running With Scissors made something amazing. You thought first Postal game was sick? Nope. Postal 2 is definition of this word. First of all, you need to have some sense of humour - kind of sick, who won't be offended at every little thing. If you met this criteria you must get this game. It's full of wrong things. Fun things. Every bad things you always were doing to people in your imagination now can come true. You can kick people. You can chop their heads and kick their heads. You can chop their heads, set them on fire and kick fire heads to your dog, which will be set on fire while playing with this funny head. You can "golden shower" people and kill them with your special gun with cat silencer.
Better than more popular stealth games but still decent.Furrek | Aug. 2, 2015 | Review of Velvet Assassin Steam - PC
I can see why Velvet Assassin is underrated game. I probably enjoyed it more than I should but still, there are few reasons for negative review. Mostly because of stealth: It's much better than more popular "stealth" games but still not a perfect one. You will fail many times because enemy will notice you when they shouldn't. Parts of game when you need to change into SS uniform are most annoying. And last mission... it changes to shooter game. Level designs aren't also good. Running around because there are parts in this game where locations looks almost same. Fortunately there is a map, so you will need to look at it many times. And a things like "finding a key for this door which is behind a door WHICH also needs a key" is kinda ridiculous. I don't remember if it was main part of game or maybe for some collectibles but still... Graphics are nice, Violette looks even more nice, german soldiers speaks their native which makes experience while playing even better. BUT if main mechanism of game isn't so good, then it all doesn't matter. If there will be some sale for this game, I guess it's worth at least checking. I wouldn't buy it at full price.
The story goes on...Furrek | July 28, 2015 | Review of Red Faction Armageddon - PC
Red Faction Armageddon is sequel to Red Faction Guerilla game. Once again you we have much stuff to destruct but it's no longer a sandbox game. You spend most of your time underground (on mars) and fight with your enemies. Is it good? To be honest, I would put it on same shelf as RF Guerilla - it's not the good old Red Faction we know, but it's not bad. Shooting is fun, and it's effective - graphics in RF Armageddon looks great! The more powerful weapon you will find yourself the more fun you will have killing enemies. While playing you can notice that this RF game is shorter than previous one. You can probably beat it without hurry in around 10 hours. Is it much? It's not bad I'd say. For this price it's rather good deal. If you enjoy FPS, but you aren't hardcore Red Faction fan, you will have fun. For me it was at most good ride.
Finally without games for windows live!Furrek | July 28, 2015 | Review of Red Faction Guerilla - PC
It's the only Red Faction game which I wanted to play for so long - but because of Games For Windows Live it was kind of hard. Every gamer probably got problems with this annoying program. But guess what? You can finally play Red Faction Guerilla on Steam without it! There are achievements and cards too. And about Red Faction - this might not the most enjoyable game in this universum in my opinion, but it's not so bad. This Red Faction game only have destruction at best level - it's far another level than in first Red Faction and IT'S SO MUCH FUN. Too bad the story isn't so great and each of missions are rather repetetive, but not to the point to be boring. Optimization in RF Guerilla is also fine, friend of mine played it normal on rather old PC. If you enjoy destroying things you will have fun playing Red Faction Guerilla. But if you are looking for something with rich story then you might want to skip it.
After many years still a great game.Furrek | July 24, 2015 | Review of Return to Castle Wolfenstein - PC
When I played Return to Castle Wolfenstein for the first time it was a perfect game - perfect graphics, perfect story, perfect gameplay. Did anything changed after so many years? Just a one thing - graphics won't impress anyone ;) Amazing atmosphere! It's one of legendary fps games, not so easy, but still not so hard, difficulty levels. They don't make games like this one anymore. Even if you never played Return to Castle Wolfenstein I'm sure you will enjoy it. This review is not some old gamer talking about how games were better before. This game is an example that games truly were amazing years ago and had something more besides fancy graphics. If I could choose a game which would be used to convince new and younger players that old doesn't mean bad - I would pick Return to Castle Wolfenstein without hesitation. If you call yourself a gamer you must play this game!
More like SR 4 DLC than game alone.Furrek | July 23, 2015 | Review of Saints Row Gat Out of Hell - PC
Gat out of Hell doesn't feel like a standalone game, and it probably would do better if it were sold as DLC for Saints Row 4. What really stands out in a bad way in Gat Out of Hell is how long this game is. A mere 4-5 hours to complete it? Is that a joke? In any case, not a funny one. Sure, there are side missions and some stuff to collect, but it's not as great as main story. Anyway, for a Saints Row fans - it's a still must play. Hell is amazing, flying even more, lots of funny moments. Sure, it could be even better, but it wasn't so bad. Solid 7/10 from me. If you want some craziness - get it.
Must have.Furrek | July 23, 2015 | Review of The Walking Dead 400 Days - PC
It's not a long DLC. Yes, it's worth the price. New characters and their stories are interesting... and choices. Really hard choices. Some people complain that even for this price, an 1-2 hour of gameplay (depend on players) isn't much but it's really solid DLC in times, when developers cuts out fragments of game only to sell it as dlc, or some cosmetic useless stuff which are probably selling for even higher money. With The Walking Dead: 400 Days you can be sure that you won't regret spending money on it and playing this DLC will be one of most memorable one. If you enjoyed the walking dead the you must have 400 days!
The best of Telltale.Furrek | July 23, 2015 | Review of The Walking Dead - PC
When I think about adventure games I think mostly about mystery and crime themes. Or fantasy. But zombies? Yeah, that's a great idea. Most of you probably know The Walking Dead - there are comics, there are tv series. In my opinion, The Walking Dead game is the best of all of this. You don't need to watch tv series or read a comic to enjoy this game. Hah, it's even better if you don't, but probably 90% of gamers or zombie lovers already did that ;) In my opinion, The Walking Dead from Telltale is what I truly can call an adventure game. A modern one. In past we had lots of great adventure games. But in modern gaming... not really. Buy it, and play it, because it's a truly masterpiece of adventure genre.
Decent for making a horror game.Furrek | July 15, 2015 | Review of RPG Maker Zombie Survival Graphic Pack - PC
I own RPG Maker: Zombie Survival Graphic Pack and even tried to make some little game with this pack but to be honest, it's at most decent for making a horror game. While I can understand there is a tiles for hospital, and lab, but it would be more of horror if there were also less military stuff - like, zombies which are attacking onrmal people, attacking normal looking city. Mixing military and zombies is way overrated and it's just boring. If you are planning to make a horror game then you will make use only of bloods, hospital, and maybe church and shelter tiles. Is buying this graphics pack worth this price? I'm not sure. It's mixed with useful and rather useless tiles so decide for yourself. It's worth the full price only if you plan to make some military vs zombies rpg game.
SUDA51 finally on PC!Furrek | July 15, 2015 | Review of Killer is Dead Nightmare Edition 2015 - PC
I'm not sure why there is new store page for Killer is Dead, or at least why review wasn't moved there... well, this game deserve to have high notes so here is my review: Michigan: Report from Hell, No More Heroes, Killer7, Shadows of the Damned or Lollipop Chainsaw... those titles alone would make you think what kind of game Killer is Dead is and how much of genius SUDA51 is. Good thing is, Killer is Dead is one of titles that is also really good and worth playing. Starting from something unique - graphics. It's nothing like you ever see before. There is also hectoliters of blood and really beatiful womans. And just when I said about womans, there is a special mode that allow you to date some of them - and see how they look in only underwear with your specials glasses... yup. There is also a stunning nurse! Aside from the main reason I picked up this game, this is a solid slasher. It's not a long game, but have a high replayability - for each episode you get scores, there is a higher difficult level, side missions and gigolo mode (this dating stuff). Also look at that price! It's a great deal for a SUDA51 game. If you are looking for some different, but a really amazing game with interesting game mechanics and story - get it.
It doesn't have all of DLCs!Furrek | July 13, 2015 | Review of Cities in Motion 2 Collection - PC
While I love to buy games in collection/game of the year editions, this one simply doesn't have all of DLCs. Maybe if there was European Cities in this collection it could be worth buying, since it add new campaign and some stuff, but DLC with few buses and a ferry... ? If you are a person who just enjoys this kind of tycoon games, you can get it. Keep in mind DLCs are nothing special and cost much, and game alone have many bugs (like multiplayer which is really bad...). It's also simple tycoon game, so don't expect from it to be expanded and complicated.
Much better than new JA games.Furrek | July 13, 2015 | Review of 762 High Calibre - PC
When you start to play 7.62 High Calibre you think about other, pretty popular games - Jagged Alliance. It's not as fun as old JA games but it's much better than new ones. While I absolutely love tactics games like this one, there are just way too many bugs to have fun with vanilla version of 7.62 High Calibre. It's not a short game, I have spend around 20 hours in it and I still haven't completed it. People who enjoyed JA games, or X-COM/UFO or other tactical games, must at least try it. It can be a little hard at beggining but there is amazing guide on Steam. Also, be sure to install The Blue Sun Mod - it will fix many of 7,62 High Calibre bugs.
Freerun fun.Furrek | June 23, 2015 | Review of Mirrors Edge Origin - PC
This is my review which I posted on Steam: http://steamcommunity.com/id/furrek/recommended/17410/ Game with boring story, not interesting characters, terrible fighting and not catchy soundtrack. There is only one thing that made this game great and it's running. Running in Mirror's Edge, or just parkour, is amazing. It makes things that aren't good not important at all, just a little addition which you can ignore. There probably aren't game about running made so well and enjoyable. There is also one thing praiseworthy and it's graphics. Graphic in Mirror's Edge is great, even tho it's game from 2009 - simply yet beatiful mix of few colors on and in buildings makes you think "damn, it looks great". Mirror's Edge is short game - for the first time playing you might spent at most 5 hours but trust me, every second is filled with great parkour actions. There are few difficulty levels, special speed run option so you can see how fast you are and time trials, where you can beat tracks as fast as you can and compare scores with your friends. There are also bags to collect in story mode if you enjoy searching for hidden stuff. These things makes game much longer to enjoy. I haven't tried everything yet (speed runs and all of time trials) but I'm sure I will be back to Mirror's Edge one day, when Virtual Reality headsets will be avaible for everyone. Just imagine, this thrill and excitement with goggles which will make gaming even more real... I can't wait for this to happen!
One of best games ever.Furrek | June 23, 2015 | Review of Max Payne STEAM - PC
It's my review which I posted on Steam: http://steamcommunity.com/id/furrek/recommended/12140/ Max Payne was released in 2001. Even after so many years it still remain one of my favorite games ever. It's just perfect. So why did I fall in love with Max Payne? - Shooting. Those weapons are really made well. If you are using shotgun it feels like shotgun, it can send bad guys flying for few meters, but you also can fly pretty high too. Throught whole game you use all of the weapons in game. Shooting in Max Payne is pure fun. - Slow motion. Probably the best slowmo in history of gaming. I mean it. Even Matrix games never had slowmo this amazing. Jumping from the corner to surprise your enemies, jumping throught the doors to surprise your enemies, and slowly falling on the ground, but faster their dead bodies. - Story and characters. There are great and memorable characters in this game. The story in form of comic is interesting as the story itself. "Clear as vodka." "No Payne, No Gain." And of course full of specific humour. Narration is perfect too. - Music. Just at the very beggining you have hard time starting game. Why? Max Payne have this amazing theme music. It makes you wait for the whole thing, it's playing, and playing, and you can't stop listening to it. When I heard it first time I had chills. It's perfect, it describes perfect, without use of any words, what kind of game Max Payne is. You will want to hear more of it as you progress with the story. - Difficult level. Max Payne isn't a easy game. Even while playing on lowest difficult level the bad guys can pack whole shotgun shell in your head, or something on your back, and kill you without any problem. Same with them throwing grenades or molotov cocktails. Once they will get better stuff than pistols you will need something more than just slowmo to get rid of them. It's easy to get hurt and there aren't enough painkillers to get rid of all this Payne... To be honest, I could praise this game all the time. Don't mind that it's an old game. It aged very well, graphics still looks great (at least for me) and it's full of things that you won't find in gaming nowadays. Even people playing Max Payne for the first time, so many years after release, are surprised how they could miss something like that. If you haven't played it, you must do it. You won't regret it.
It's finally here.Furrek | April 14, 2015 | Review of Grand Theft Auto V Post - PC
Rockstar for sure made PC gamers wait for the newest Grand Theft Auto game. Was all this time to wait worth? I'm sure it was. First of all, optimization was done great - I'm sure that recommended requirements exaggerated. 60 fps with settings on max makes this game much more beatiful and fun experience than on consoles. There are many improvements made and added ęven more stuff and things to do, compared to previous in series GTA 4, like playing in first person view or doing some heists with friends online. Rockstar is one of few developers that can make great games while each next are even better and more fun. It's must play, worth every price.
Remastered goods.Furrek | Feb. 26, 2015 | Review of Broken Sword 2 The Smoking Mirror Remastered - PC
Like in the first remastered Broken Sword, this one is also hurt because of that. Hints destroy any challenge in this game. Also, I think that remastered portraits looks terrible. If you can ignore these things and for some reason you aren't able to play original one, get it. It's still great Broken Sword game. In my opinion, The Smoking Mirror it the best in Broken Sword series. Story is great, amazing music by great composer and great looking graphics. Well, at least I think that 2d fits greatly adventure games. For fans of Broken Sword and adventure games it's a must have.
Solid multiplayer.Furrek | Feb. 25, 2015 | Review of Natural Selection II - PC
There are many multiplayer games that are getting bored fast, or became empty in short time. Natural Selection II is different. I haven't played first one and to be honest never heard anything about it. Same with this game. Just then I happened to own game and I tried it. As a new player you don't have it easy - there are many servers that aren't friendly to new players. You either won't be able to connect to server or you will kicked shortly after joining. It's easy to understand - Natural Selection II is game where teamwork and knowing game mechanics, characters and skills are important if you want to win. You will need a lot of time to learn everything but that alone won't make you win. There are always captain in each of team that are trying their best to do everything to bring victory to their team. There are a lot from strategy games in Natural Selection II, despite being a FPS online game. If you ask me, there aren't many multiplayer games like Natural Selection II. It's not only fun but also have many unique mechanics that you won't find in Call of Battlefield games. If you wan't to play a truly teamwork based multiplayer game you must get Natural Selection II.
Not best from TellTale.Furrek | Feb. 23, 2015 | Review of Jurassic Park The Game - PC
If you have played already The Walking Dead or other more popular TellTale's games then be prepared for disappointment. Why? Well, you can see that it didn't taken the best from Jurassic Park universe. There could be more and done better. It's probably one of worse TellTale's games. Maybe it's universe fault, since I'm not really fan of dinosaurs? Or because of too many QTEs? If you are only fan of TellTale games then you will probably have not as much fun but if you love Jurassic Park - that's another story, mostly because of familiar faces from movie.
Minecraft in Space.Furrek | Feb. 23, 2015 | Review of Space Engineers - PC
I probably love every game inspired by minecraft. It's same with Space Engineers. Gathering stuff, building bases and space ships was never so comfy. You might get bored while playing alone but it's totally different game when it comes to multiplayer. It's still game in Early Access but right now there is many things to do so you won't get bored. Also, devs said that every update will be free which is nice. Even if you are not into Minecraft and clones, maybe something in space will change that? It's not so "childish" and some game mechanics aren't even similar. I know one thing - if you love sandbox games then you must have Space Engineers.
Remake of great adventure game.Furrek | Feb. 23, 2015 | Review of Broken Sword the Shadow of the Templars Directors Cut - PC
Soon it will be 20 years since original version was released. It was so long time ago. Director's Cut version is remake of this game. What were changed? Well, like in many remakes and re-releases, Broken Sword was also "dumbed". There are now flash light where you should click so it is less fun to explore and find things. Visuals also looks really bad, I liked original much more. There are also few different at begin of game but well, it's still a great adventure game. This one is only available on Steam so if you want to own it there, you must deal with it. Anyway, Broken Sword is must play for adventure games lovers.
Must play for LEGO fans.Furrek | Feb. 21, 2015 | Review of The LEGO Movie Videogame MAC - PC
Did you ever played with LEGO? There are few elements from old LEGO stuff, so prepare to have a little nostalgia trip. Building stuff and mini games in this LEGO game are really great. Have you watched The LEGO Movie film? The story isn't so great and you can see it lacks something if you haven't watched movie. Since there are playable scenes from film you will probably have much more fun if you watched movie first but it's not necessary in order to play the game. There are also bugs which can block your characters sometimes but I don't think it's worth mentioning, since it will happen at most few times only. Since this game is focused only on LEGO, not some universe like Harry Potter's for example, only people who loves LEGO or LEGO games will have fun playing it. So if you are one, I'm sure you know what to do.
Perfect for everyone.Furrek | Feb. 9, 2015 | Review of LEGO Star Wars The Complete Saga MAC - PC
Lego Star Wars if probably my favorite Lego game ever. It's perfect for everyone - for kids (because that's lego, doesn't matter if boy or girl, everybody love this stuff), for normal players (it's a great game with many unlockables and pretty high replayability) and even for hardcore Star Wars fans, because why not? It's Complete Saga, meaning there are tons of levels from every Star Wars movie that was made. Are you fan of Yoda? Maybe Jar Jar Binks? Or someone darker, like Darth Maul? There are so many characters to play as so I'm your favorite Star Wars character from movie is playable here. You can't go wrong with Lego Star Wars and plenty hours of fun are guaranteed.
Good, but worse than old Star Wars games.Furrek | Feb. 6, 2015 | Review of Star Wars The Force Unleashed Ultimate Sith Edition MAC - PC
What I look in Star Wars action games are fights using lightsabers. I remember how much fun I had in Jedi Outcast or Jedi Academy. If you thought these two games had best lightsaber fights ever then there is nothing that will surprise or caught you in. Fight here are quite boring. Still, it's a good Star Wars game. It's beautiful, have nice story which is sadly not canon, but I don't think it matters that much. Ultimate Sith Edition comes with a DLC with additional mission on Tatooine and Coruscant, which, if I'm not mistaken, wasn't earlier available to buy separate on PC. Anyway, if you are fan of Star Wars then you will love this game but if you think you gonna find here a better and more effective lightsaber fights than in Jedi Outcast / Jedi Academy then you will be probably disappointed.
Fun for short sittings.Furrek | Feb. 6, 2015 | Review of LUFTRAUSERS - PC
This is probably the best 2d arcade shooter I have ever played. It's easy - destroy everything, gather points, do missions and unlock stuff for more fun. Since most of gameplays won't take longer than 5 minutes it's a great game for short sittings. There are many options to customise your plane - not only weapons, but boosts and your armory. The graphics might not look exciting but trust me, once you will play it you will love it. Also music, while there aren't many tracks, it does sound nice. If you love arcade shooters you will love it too. Maybe you are looking for a game for short sittings? LUFTRAUSERS is very good choice then.
Now ith all DLCs!Furrek | Jan. 30, 2015 | Review of Warlock Master of the Arcane Complete Edition - PC
I have played Warlock: Master of the Arcane without any addons and had really good time. It's like Civilization game but in fantasy setting, which is awesome thing. If you are getting bored with Civ games you can try this one and I'm sure you won't regret it. Take a note that DLCs gives many new things to the game: new mode, units, buildings, spells and much, much more. Buying all DLCs separate wasn't a great deal but with this pack - it's a great price, and if you are new player that are looking for a great strategy, civilization-like game to spend time with - Warlock: Master of Arcane is best choice.
Another great idea that isn't made well.Furrek | Jan. 26, 2015 | Review of Reus - PC
It's always fun to play as "God". When I think about games where you are playing as one I'm thinking about Black and White or Populous and things will stay like that. Reus didn't impress me so much that I would recall this game when somebody would ask me to give example for games like that. Why? First of all let me say that it's a game with a great idea but like always it was almost wasted. After tutorials I played for few hours in something like free mode, since there aren't any campaings, but it get boring fast. There should be more things to do besides taking care of planet by "planting" minerals and such. Playing with terain isn't so great also. If you feel like you want to test yourself as God, you can try it but be prepared to be dissapointed.
Game for everyone.Furrek | Jan. 23, 2015 | Review of The Book of Unwritten Tales Standard Edition - PC
You don't need to be adventure games fan to love The Book of Unwritten Tales. It's a great game. Graphics really fits this fairy tale game and with fantastic music it builds something amazing. This game have also great humour and references to some more popular games and movies. It's not a short game and you will need more than one night to complete it. It's long enough to become acquainted with the characters. The Book of Unwritten Tales is a game that everyone will enjoy, so don't hesitate. It's worth every price.
It's not so bad.Furrek | Jan. 22, 2015 | Review of Guilty Gear Isuka Steam - PC
I have heards people complains that this one doesn't have multiplayer option - is there a need for one? Many fighting games are like that - with local options only where you can play again each other on 1 PC. And about Guilty Gear Isuka - it's a fast paced fighting game, with interesting characters and amazing effects. It's not so hard playing vs AI and if I'm not mistaken Arcade mode have only 100lvls but still, I don't think that it's a bad game. So if you enjoy Guilty Gear games or you are looking for pretty good 2d fighting game - you will have a good time with Guilty Gear Isuka.
If this game would be a little bit more polished...Furrek | Jan. 22, 2015 | Review of Lucius steam - PC
What I really like in Lucius is atmosphere. It's dark, it's perfect. Did you ever watched The Omen? If you did you can guess what kind of game it is. Quite sadly that there many imperfect thing that can destroy all this fun a little. There many bugs, graphics doesn't look so great and look like a game older than was made in in 2012 like Lucius. What's more annoying you will probably find yourself many times blocked at, for example, at doors. It's not a bad horror game but it really could be a little more polished. If you want to experience something dark and you doesn't mind bugs and errors, Lucius is a good choice.
Simply amazing.Furrek | Jan. 21, 2015 | Review of Resident Evil HD Remaster - PC
Some people might not know but this is a gamecube remake of Resident Evil game. What does that mean for people that have played original RE? There are few new rooms, some puzzles and many, many different things. It's not quite the same experience as playing Resident Evil but it doesn't mean that it's bad - no. It's awesome. Finally come back for great classic Resident Evil game. It's scary, it's fun and challenging to play. Also achievements are made like they should be - for example: beating the game in less than 3 hours or killing everything with your knife only. That's the real definition of achievement. Anyway, I hope that RE HD Remaster won't be the last step in bringing back good old RE to players and fans. This is a must play for everyone who loves great games.
Multiplayer only.Furrek | Jan. 14, 2015 | Review of The Ship - PC
Don't get me wrong - you can play it in single player but it's not the same. The Ship is a game where hunting for another REAL players is most fun, since AI players, no matter how good they will be programmed, won't replace a human. Also, this game is not for everybody - all you need to do is simply enjoy the game of acting. It's up to your actor skills how good will you do in game. There are so many things that can mislead you enemies, there are so many ways to kill them off. The Ship is a game with amazing atmosphere of suspense. There aren't many players around but maybe if you check forums of this title you find someone to play with together.
Comfy.Furrek | Jan. 14, 2015 | Review of International Snooker steam - PC
I'm not sure how are things now but I remember that snooker was pretty popular few years ago. I remember when everytime when I got back to home I played it in some online flash games website - there were plenty of players and it was fun! So, how is International Snooker? It's a good game, at least for every snooker fan. Playing the whole championship takes many hours to complete, you can change how your cue looks like or the place where are you playing at. The only thing that can be complainted at are physics - it's not very realistic. Still, there aren't many snooker or pool games on Steam, so if you really want to play one that is good, even with not so great physics, International Snooker is good choice.
Different, but very good, multiplayer game.Furrek | Jan. 14, 2015 | Review of Guns of Icarus Online - PC
This is my review for this game on Steam platform: http://steamcommunity.com/id/furrek/recommended/209080 I don't remember when I have played some multiplayer game that is so unique. It's not simply team-based game that you are just scoring by killing enemy but the key to victory is teamwork. Destroying enemy is also important but in order to do so teamwork is necessary. You are one of 4 crew ship member and you playing as pilot, gunner or engineer. It's not like these are locked classes, but you are able to choose what you want to do and what you are good at. What's even more amazing is how great community in Guns of Icarus Online is. Even with low level players, everybody tries to do their best in order to win. I'm not big fan of steampunk and to be honest I had hard time trying to play this game, at first it looked "meh" but I don't regret it, once I tried and I really like this game. It's nothing like any FPS games, MOBA or other genre that are avaible. Guns of Icarus Online is truly unique as multiplayer game.
Good for co-op.Furrek | Jan. 13, 2015 | Review of Shank - PC
I'm not a big fan of brawler/beat them up/sidescroller games or whatever you use to name a game where you walk from left to right and press few buttons to beat every living (and not) things. Shank is kind of different. It's nice looking game, it's hilarious and have a not bad story. But that's still not enough to please me. So why did I liked Shank? Co-op! You can't play this kind of games alone. Sure, maybe some people will have fun, but for this kind of games partner is must have for a bloody fun which Shank is. Also, maybe some people have noticed that art style is similar to game called "Mark of the Ninja" - yup, that's a game from same guys.
Poor's man NFS: Underground.Furrek | Jan. 12, 2015 | Review of Street Racing Syndicate - PC
Even thought Street Racing Syndicate was out 2 years later than NFS: Underground, it's still much worse game. Why I'm comparing these two titles? Because both of them are about illegal street racing. I'm sure many people remember how great NFS: Underground was and I think Street Racing Syndicate wanted to be something similar. Sadly, it isn't. Devs had some great ideas but it wasn't made well. Cars, music and girls are nice. The only thing it's missing is any difficulty levels - this game is so easy that sometimes I think it was only made for people which enjoy looking at cars and girls, nothing more. Still, there aren't many games like that nowadays. If you don't own NFS: Underground, or any other racing game with theme like SRS, get it.
Dark, brutal and scary.Furrek | Jan. 12, 2015 | Review of Nosferatu The Wrath of Malachi - PC
Nosferatu: The Wrath of Malachi reminds me of old shooters with a better 3d graphics and very dark atmosphere. There are many original weapons that I'm sure wasn't used in many, or even probably in noone, games before: crucifix, holy water and few more. Fighting enemies brings so much joy, some of them are really demanding and you will need something more than pressing a left mouse button. UI is also nice. Sure, this game have many years on it's back and maybe it's not so scary like it used to be more than 10 years ago but it's still a game worth playing. Doesn't matter if you are fan of horror shooters, old games, etc. Nosferatu is unique experience,
Start of something great.Furrek | Jan. 10, 2015 | Review of Sanctum - PC
I have played Sanctum games in wrong order - started with Second, then this. Was it hard to me? Nope. Both of Sanctum main games are different from each other. In my opinion, first Sanctum is much harder. There are more options of style you want to beat maps and waves. You can upgrade here your weapon, so if you wan't to deal with enemies personally without much help from towers - you are free to do it. In the base game there aren't many maps but there are two map packs, so remember to get them if you don't want to end your fun with Sanctum too fast. It's great Tower Defense and FPS mix, I enjoyed it as much as with Sanctum 2.
You won't forget atmosphere in this one.Furrek | Jan. 10, 2015 | Review of Scratches Steam - PC
Scratches: Director's Cut is point and click adventure game. It's a great title for a players that aren't really bound with this genre. Why? Puzzles in this one are rather simply. Some people know that point and click genre have games that are really hard to play alone and you need sometimes to search for some "help". Scratches is not like that. Scratches is not like that, so veteran players can be a little bit dissapointed. As for me, in game that have so great atmosphere, beatiful and well made graphics along with music as poetry, I don't mind that puzzles aren't, in my opinion, on the first stage, but everything other is. I'm sure that I won't forget this game. Give it a try, maybe you will find yourself in love with truly amazing atmosphere this game can offer.
Tower Defense at the best.Furrek | Jan. 9, 2015 | Review of PixelJunk Monsters Ultimate - PC
I truly enjoy playing Tower Defense games. There are so many games that demand from you a tactic for beat level or complete it perfectly. I enjoy to play TD games again and again and try out new settings of towers or other stuff, because it's simply fun. Can Pixeljunk Monsters Ultimate be counted as game like that? YES. This game is beatiful, have very nice music, many levels to beat and perfect them. What's also great, that this game can be played with another player, which is really rare in this genre. If there is something I can point out as "it could be done better" is the ability to make round or wave faster. Since there is no option like that, you need to slowly watch how these monsters are walking sometimes so sloowly but it isn't something to make this game unplayable. If you are fan of TD games, or you want to try out game from this genre, Pixeljunk Monsters Ultimate is great choice!
Relaxing jigsaw puzzle game.Furrek | Jan. 9, 2015 | Review of Pixel Puzzles Japan - PC
The last time when I saw real jigsaw puzzle was... wow, I don't remember when. Even thought these are still popular, I just can't find a time to look around to find something interesting and buy it. This is where games come and save the day! To be honest I didn't had any intention to play jigsaw puzzle game - the feel is just different, it's same when you read a real book and an ebook. When I finally tried it... I miss old times. It was so relaxing, but also different. If you don't have a time for real ones, or you just want to try if you will have fun doing it on PC game - trust me, it's fun. The only thing that can make it experience a little less fun is that you can't save game in middle of puzzle - since it's not problem on puzzles with less pieces, then later it get tough and you will need to start again, or just leave a game running. There wasn't any word of it from devs so I think it won't be "fixed". If you don't mind this, buy Pixel Puzzles: Japan. It's a fair price for an amount of fun it offers.
Forget about it.Furrek | Jan. 9, 2015 | Review of Canyon Caper (1) - PC
If you didn't grabbed a copy when this game was for free, forget about it. There is nothing interesting in this title. I know it's just a simple platformer game but even something this easy can be done wrong. So what's wrong? Every level looks same. Seriously, sometimes you feel like you played this level before but you only notice that it's not because of different objective. Animations in Canyon Capers is just... wait, there is any animation? When you run, jump or kill enemies it looks like sprites are moving up/down/left/right. Maybe there are few moves but really, devs of this game can't into animation. There is nothing worth to notice and list of bad things is just toooooo looooongs. Avoid at all cost, even if you enjoy every platformer games, you will only get tired from playing this.
Hidden gem.Furrek | Jan. 9, 2015 | Review of Dark Sector - PC
I'm sure that not many people played this game, even among fans of "hidden" gems. What is so great in Dark Sector? First of all the dark aura - it's just amazing. It build game well. Next one are amazing weapon and skills. "Boss" fights are also great and graphics - simply amazing. Sounds amazing, but there are also bad sides of this game: it's way too short and too simply. You can feel a little bored after playing it too long but in shorter sittings - it's great. Why would I call Dark Sector a hidden gem? Because it's unexpected fun and well made. Sure, it's not best game ever made but I'm sure once you will give it a try you will be surprised how good this game is.
Crazy idea with terrible outcome.Furrek | Jan. 9, 2015 | Review of NPPD Rush - PC
When I started this game I thought it was a cool idea but the more time I spent in the more I regret it. Why? It's painful to play. It's not old school game, it's not retro game. It tries to imitate this kind of game but without any success. There is nothing fun to do. This is not fun experience. NPPD Rush: The Milk of Ultra Violet is terrible "game". Once you will learn how to play you can beat it very fast but either you will get bored before, or very annoyed and look around internet for some tips. Anyway, don't get it. Waste of time, money and shame to have something like that in Steam's library. 5/100 only because it have steam cards.
Interesting style in another indie puzzle game.Furrek | Jan. 9, 2015 | Review of The Bridge - PC
I would fall in love with this game only if I wouldn't play MANY like these before. The Bridge have a very nice level design and great graphics style. I will sure remember this game for long only because of that. What's more? Easy controls, hard and harder puzzles. Sadly, many of indie games are like that. I played many of them so maybe "another indie puzzle game with interesting style and some story" are not making big impression on me. That doesn't mean this game isn't worth buying or playing. Wrong. It is, but I wouldn't consider this as something you must play. If you are fan of indie puzzle games get it.
Alternative for Civilization.Furrek | Jan. 9, 2015 | Review of Storm Frontline Nation - PC
To be honest, not very good, but if somebody got bored. This game have one very big flaw - AI. Fighting against computer enemies are not fun, since computer players aren't using everything they can (they almost can't fight back on your flying units). Not sure if it was patched, but if you don't mind playing knowing that, it's a good game. It's big, beatiful and full of options that every strategy fan loves. Requirements for this game aren't big so it will run even on older machines. Also, if you will get bored with battles you can set them to automatic, which is good option.
Decent but depend on gamer taste.Furrek | Jan. 9, 2015 | Review of Greed - PC
It's a game from same people that made Avencast: Rise of the Mage. While I liked Avencast, Greed: Black Border is a little worse. The most important part and also the worst in this game are movements. Moving and fighting are really bad, it will make you angry most of the time you will met any enemies. This alone reason is why you might want to stay away from this game BUT if you aren't scared of that, then give it a try. It's a little bit like Space Siege or Space Hack. You shouldn't expect something amazing but if you are forgiving player, then maybe you will enjoy it.
Clone: Total War.Furrek | Jan. 9, 2015 | Review of Imperial Glory Steam - PC
While playing Imperial Glory the first thought you will probably have is "hey, doesn't it look and feel like game from Total War series?". Correct. It's not 1:1 clone, Imperial Glory have some original stuff. Historical battles are really amazing but these or sea are rather painful. For a difficulty level it is mediocore, there isn't anything that would require a great skill in this kind of games. I'm not sure how is the multiplayer but I think it's dead, or maybe doesn't even work since it's "old" game. Ask youself: do you like Total War games? Want to try something similar yet a little bit different? If you want to, try Imperial Glory out.
Bad Commandos, decent game.Furrek | Jan. 8, 2015 | Review of Commandos Strike Force - PC
I'm in big love with the first Commandos game - heck, even sequels were good! This game, I can't call this a Commandos game. It's no longer strategy game but some FPS, that isn't fun or challenging at all. Even for a FPS game Commandos: Strike Force is very poor game. Playing as spy is kinda fun but otherwise it's just a boring game. It's sad to see great franchise as Commandos to have this game. If you are fan of Commandos series DON'T BUY this game. You will regret this. Maybe, if you never played original Commandos, you might have some fun, but that's the only way to have a little fun of this title.
Not so bad SHMUP.Furrek | Jan. 8, 2015 | Review of PowerUp - PC
It remind me of old classic shmup games - not only because of graphics, but of many things. For example, you don't pick-up any lifes or you don't get any extras. There are no saves or continues. It's also cheap game, for something that was made by one person it's in my opinion amazing. Sadly, it doesn't have any options for change keys, resolution etc., but it doesn't make this game unplayable. Having controller will make this game easier to play, but it's not necessary. If you are into SHMUPs you can't miss this game.
Funny thing that hurts.Furrek | Jan. 8, 2015 | Review of DLC Quest - PC
When you look at DLC Quest for the first time you see funny and cute platformer. It's not hard game but worth playing. There isn't much replayability once you beat it and focus on getting all achievements (if I remember well there is one for speed-running game) BUT... this game shows how nowadays games are made like. When was last time when we got triple A game without any dlc? Game without season passes? Simply a full product that allows you to play without worrying that ending is in some paid pack, some content that was deleted from the main game? I don't really mind it, since old games had add-ons too but at least, dear developers, give us something that is worth this price and isn't cut from main game. Sadly, we fallen into the trap and dlcs will haunt us forever.
It aged bad...Furrek | Dec. 22, 2014 | Review of Judge Dredd Dredd Versus Death - PC
There are games that can be called classic when even with double digit number of years that came out are still playable, enjoyable to the fullest, and build decent fan base that are connected together forever. Sadly, Judge Dredd: Dredd vs Death is not that kind of game. I remember it was much better when I played it first time. Now, when I try to play it again, it have many annoying issues and just doesn't feel right. I'm fan of old games but it isn't same like it was in 2003 (it was released much earlier than is said on website). Maybe if you never played it and also love old games, you can give it a try. Also hard Judge Dredd fans might enjoy this game but otherwise don't try it. You will be only disappointed.
Very similar to previous one.Furrek | Dec. 21, 2014 | Review of NBA 2K15 - PC
Starting from the good thing, amazing graphics! Watching how players are moving you feel like you are watching a real game in real life. It's simply great and I can't wait what future will hold with even better graphics that are right now! Another amazing thing is that NBA 2k15 simply fun - if you are not into soccer than maybe try basketball, because this was my case. I don't like new Fifa or PES games but for some reason I got drawn into NBA. The things that could be done better: UI and AI. Interface from previous NBA game was much better - this one have it confusing and you will need time to learn where to find some things. As for AI, well, it's kind of unfair. Enemy's team are always doing fine, even with the worst players, while your team is not even helpful. If you don't mind things like that, you can go ahead and play it. It's a great game and there are not really other choice.
Sweet memories.Furrek | Dec. 19, 2014 | Review of Pandemonium - PC
If you had first Playstation console then you must remember Crash. You probably remember also Spyro, two of them were great platformer games. For me, what made a great platformer game, was Pandemonium. It was just different - beatiful, and in game model of Nikki looked really hot (well, I was just a kid). I remember that one day I had Otitis media and my ear hurt like hell. I thought this pain will kill me, so I wanted to play last time my favorite platformer. I'm not sure how long I have played but I finished the game and I was happy, ready to die. Then mom took me to doctor and everything was fine, since I'm writing about that in some review about great classic platformer game. Sadly, noone of my friends played it ever - they simply loved and played over and over other more popular platformers. Pandemonium will always have a special place in my heart. Classic that can't be missed, at least when you love old games.
Yargh!Furrek | Dec. 7, 2014 | Review of Sid Meiers Pirates Steam - PC
You know what's important about being a pirate? Wood leg? Eyepatch? Booze? Sure, it's important, but I think most of people overlook one thing - FREEDOM. I'm a pirate, I want to do whatever I want. I want to kill, I want to rob, I want to explore all of waters in the world! Yargh! Sid Meier's Pirates! is in my opinion perfect game about being a pirate. You don't need to follow the story. You are free to do whatever you want. The game's end when you go for your retirement, which is amazing thing. Have you ever played original Pirates! from 1987? Then it's a must have for you. It's same mix of genres but in better graphics. Sadly for a games with pirates, there haven't been even 1 game that was good since Sid Meier's game, so if you want to play a real game about that, get Pirates! right now.
You don't need to like Borderland games to love this.Furrek | Dec. 5, 2014 | Review of Tales from the Borderlands - PC
I'm not big fan of Borderland games. Those are not bad shooters but that's all, every next game in series is more and more boring. Tales from the Borderlands is different story. Sure, the action takes place after Borderlands 2, but without even without that knowledge you won't feel "lost" in this game. This game have much more action than any other adventure games from Telltale, but that doesn't mean the game is action game - no! It's another great game from Telltale that can't be missed. Also, maybe it's just me, but episodes (right now only 1 avaible) is quite longer than in any other Telltale's games. You must give it a try if you are fan of Telltale's games or Borderlands. You are fan of both? This will be best adventure game you ever played.
Fast and unknown.Furrek | Dec. 3, 2014 | Review of Ninja Blade - PC
I never saw people chating about that game. Even when game was out, some of people I know tried just the demo and never they never came back to this title. So, what's the deal with Ninja Blade? It's really fast DMC-like game, with great boss fights and something like slow-mo. On my first time I have finished the game in about 8-9 hours, so it's quite long for a game like this. Also, QTE actions are beatiful. Ninja Blade is one of these games that nobody's know or remember, but once you will try it you won't regret it. If you don't mind that this is a non steam version, get it and play it. Fans of DMC or other slashers will have plenty of fun!
I expected something better.Furrek | Nov. 27, 2014 | Review of Goat Simulator - PC
I remember first trailers, first youtube gameplays that showed how "funny" this game. Bugs, errors everywhere, that made this Goat looks so "random". Everything was fine until I played this game by myself. Don't get me wrong - I'm not a person without any imagination that given a game with open world, or without any main goal, don't know what to do. I played it for few hours and I got very bored. Why? Because everything that was cool was already showed up many times. The only thing that can make it a little bit more interesting to play is upcoming update. If you enjoy being "random" and "funny", get it. If you are looking for something to spend time with, get yourself other simulator.
Best pack ever.Furrek | Nov. 18, 2014 | Review of Sonic Ultimate Pack - PC
For a every Sonic game that is on Steam this price is just great. There is no need to tell who the Sonic is because every gamer knows that. What you get in this pack is great platformers - not only the classic one but the ones that was out not so long time ago too, amazing racing games that are fun like Mario Kart games on Nintendo consoles. You will spend many great hours playing these games and these are worth every time and money to put on them. If you are not fan of Sonic then maybe you can try to play at least one of these games, because they are just amazing!
Most easy, first step into making a games.Furrek | Sept. 26, 2014 | Review of RPG Maker VX Ace - PC
This is, in my opinion, the best program that will get you into making games. Making games were never so easy before! You may think "oh, great, another program that is making rpg games that are all same" but that's wrong. Sure, if you don't have a idea, you won't make a game. Just look around the internet, there are tons of games made in RPG Maker: simply rpg games, games based on some tv/movie/anime series (for example: fan games made in Dragon Ball universe), games portet from one genre to rpg and many other great ideas. After so many years (first RPG Maker program was back in 1992!!! I'm not counting the ASCII versions, that was back in 1988) people made many great games, and people with great ideas, interesting stories or some other things, made a games that they sells! The best example for successful game would be To The Moon - it's a game made in RPG Maker. It's not about making levels, getting better stuff, saving the world etc., but nobody's said that RPG Maker would make only RPG games. If you know the program and learn to use it, you can really make something great. Cherry Tree High Comedy Club is also a RPG Maker games, and much more, just look around the steam. I believe if you put enough time and effort into making something in RPG Maker, you can even make a game that will sells on steam. But of course, most of people are making just games for fun, which is alone enough reason to get this program. Don't mind the high price, because it's really worth it.
Braid's cousin.Furrek | Sept. 26, 2014 | Review of Another Perspective Steam - PC
Playing Another Perspective remind me of another indie platformer game, Braid. Another Perspective looks simply, and it is. There aren't any superb graphics, but simply platformers are good in my opinion. As for the music, there aren't many thing to hear, but it doesn't mean that a bad thing. For game like this, it really fits. What's really interesting in this game are puzzles and narration. Both of these thing make you thinks about few things, not only how to beat it to next level. It's a short game, but have some replayability. There is an achievement for beating this game in 12 minutes but trust, you won't be able to do that even after many times finishing games. If you are looking for quite unique experience, you can try this game.
Start of great series.Furrek | Sept. 26, 2014 | Review of Jagged Alliance Gold Edition - PC
I never had a chance to play original Jagged Alliance game. I started from the best, second game, that was truly amazing. So when I played Jagged Alliance 1: Gold, I had this feeling that it's something interesting. After few hours I knew one thing - it's a great game and start for Jagged Alliance games. If you compare this to the second one, you don't see much differences. Ok, there are few, but it's not like that. Like, hiring mercenaries is still same, defending zones are same, turn based combat is same. Every character have their own voice, nature and when playing, you instantly know "Ah, I know I won't / I will like him/her". It's amazing for game this old to be playable in these times and that there are ideas that were simply amazing. If you are fan of Jagged Alliance 2, then you MUST play this one. Even though it's working on dosbox, it's full playable on new operation systems.
Cute and pants.Furrek | Sept. 25, 2014 | Review of Vanguard Princess - PC
Fans of Japanese animations will probably love this game. Well, at least I do. Why? Just look at these graphics, just look at all characters. It's full of beatiful girls! They are cute and very strong. It's a simple fighting game, with 10 characters that can team up with some support girls. It have original japanese dubbing and, what's more important, there is a free dlc on steam that's making this game uncensored, as it was on original realease. That means alot of fanservice. The only thing that can stop you from buying Vanguard Princess is lack of online mode. That mean, you can only play against computer players, or with someone on one PC. But still, in my opinion, it's one of best doujin fighting games that I have ever played.
Finally a great South Park game.Furrek | Sept. 22, 2014 | Review of South Park The Stick of Truth POST (1) - PC
If you are fan of this epic show you probably know how previous South Park were - some platformers, minigames, racing, tower defense. Sure, for an absolute fan, everything was great. South Park: The Stick of Truth is first serious game in South Park set in South Park universe. I would never expect that RPG based on this kind of show can be so awesome. Mostly, I can recommend this game for fans of serial - because it's full of gags, characters, situations from EVERY South Park season. You will also hear a great music that was used in show. If you are not one - you will also enjoy it, because it's a solid RPG, with a humor that will makes everyone smile and jokes that always cross the road. The only thing that makes this game imperfect is that after you finish the game, there is almost nothing to do. But well, you can always replay the game as other class. It's, in my opinion, best game that is out in 2014 year.
Too short.Furrek | Sept. 18, 2014 | Review of The Darkness II Overflow - PC
When I look at my steam library it says I have spent 5 hours playing it - in those 5 hours I managed to beat the game. Is it much? Depends. For the people who plays the game only once and move forward, I don't think so, but for people that enjoy playing everything for 100% I think it's a good game. What really is great in The Darkness 2 are special powers. It's been long time since I found a game with really good shooting mechanics and special abilities that goes so well with it. For this reason alone I think you should get this game. Another thing is the characters - they are cool, dialogues are enjoyable and you will want to follow the story's of them. There is also litres of blood, so if you enjoy bloody games that can be ended in one sitting, The Darkness 2 is good choice.
Beatiful shmup.Furrek | Sept. 17, 2014 | Review of Sine Mora - PC
Every shoot-em-up game I have ever played were simply - some had flashy effects but that's all. Sine Mora is probably first game that have so beatiful graphics. Every plane, every missile, every stage and boss is well made. What's even more amazing, developers didn't focused only on making a good looking game - Sine Mora is a really hard game and you will need to spent many hours to perfect some things, and even more to unlock every possible achievement. Even though there aren't many levels, you won't get bored with them. I'd like to say, it's a must have for shmup fans. Just remember one thing, that you will need a decent mouse or gamepad for this game. I had hard times playing it on my 5 years old mouse (it was too slow for game like this) so I had to play it with gamepad.
Funny little game.Furrek | Sept. 17, 2014 | Review of RADical ROACH - PC
I love when developers put a lot of humour in their games, even if it isn't a comedy game but simply, like Radical Roach, shoot-em-up game. What's that made me laugh? First of all thing - idea. Like, I don't think there are any other shmup game that allow you to play as cockroach. I'm not sure how many people noticed that mouse icon is a little cockroach as well. As for difficult settings, there are 3 to choose from: hard, hard and, of course, hard. Little things like that makes me to think better of this game. About gameplay, there isn't much to say about Radical Roach. It's typical shoot-em-up game, that is in my opinion a little too easy. Also, there are not many options to customise, such as volume of music, effects etc. You can't either skip cut-scenes, even if they aren't long, it's just somehow annoying to watch them over and over again, if you replay some levels. Get it if you are fan of shmups and you are looking for different experience.
Good way to train brain.Furrek | Sept. 15, 2014 | Review of Pressured - PC
There aren't many games that are focused on doing some trainings that helps your brain. Pressured is game like that. Why does it help your brain? By simply training with number. This game is focused by simply clicking numbers on TVs and adding them to make total that is required by current challenge. The numbers are dissapearing very quickly and you need not only to click them fast, but also chose corrent ones so sum of them would make a same number that is current on challenge status. It's kind of hard to explain, but trust me, it's easy to jump into. There are few difficult levels so it's easy to start and slowly master it. Many people think that doing easy tasks like that aren't helping with anything but that's not true. I'm glad that game like this made it to steam, would be cool if people would spent few minutes daily playing games like that and train their brains everyday, because it's really good for our brain and life by doing simply maths.
Game with story, not gameplay.Furrek | Sept. 15, 2014 | Review of Dear Esther Steam - PC
Not everybody will like game like this - where you are focusing on story, on looking around on beatiful environment with a great and dark climate. There is no shooting, there is no action, it's what you can call a game without a gameplay, or "walking" simulator, but it would sound like it's a bad game. Depent on people who are playing it. If you expect something different, not action based game, something for your brain, then you will probably enjoy Dear Esther. Music and graphics in this game is nice, but the most important is story, which is simply great. Dear Esther will make you play this game few more times, because you will be in need to know everything. Sadly (or maybe not) this game is quite short experience, but in return it's a great one. You can at least give it a try, if you play something other than action-only games.
Too spooky for me.Furrek | Sept. 15, 2014 | Review of Anna Extended Edition - PC
When I grabbed Anna - Extended Edition I had no idea this game was a horror. I knew that it's adventure, but that's all. Starting from beginning this game have pretty good puzzle elements - you will need to combine many things and sometimes you will not expect outcome. Also it's not like because puzzles are not realistic, because in my opinion they are good. Next thing is graphics, which are amazing for a game like this. The world in this game is something worth checking out. What's also great is few endings - perfect for people who like to play few times, not only once. Anna - Extended Edition is a great horror game. I had a situation when in room I was "attacked" by something and needed to start over again. I didn't knew what happened but was scared and curious, so when I tried to "summon" this thing again nothing happened... so it was very strange. I'm not big fan of this genre, but I did enjoyed Anna. I'm sure that if you are fan of horror/adventure games, you will love this game.
Great strategy.Furrek | Sept. 11, 2014 | Review of Warhammer 40000 Dawn of War Game of the Year Edition SEGA - PC
What I remember from gaming few years ago is that there was many great strategy games. Is Warhammer 40k: Dawn of War one of them? SURE! First of all, you don't need to be fan of Warhammer universe - but if you are one, then you will have even more fun. As for strategy game, Dawn of War is really well made. You can play missions in campaing mode, select how "hard" you want the enemy to be, or play just simple skirmish mode. Also, if you have a friends, you will sure have fun playing this game over internet. What's really also great (for fans mostly) that you can paint your own units in this game. You will have great times playing Dawn of War, even after many years this game is still playable and more fun than many new games.
Good for fans.Furrek | Sept. 8, 2014 | Review of Stealth Bastard Deluxe The Teleporter Chambers - PC
Stealth Bastard Deluxe alone isn't a game for everyone and it's quite hard if you ask. So, you might be interested in this DLC only when you are fan of this game, or want to have 100% achievements on steam. Sadly, more achievements from DLC are more and more popular so it's not so easy on wallets of achievement hunters. So, it's a good piece of DLC but you feel like somehow this could be just a part of base game. There are 20 more levels to beat, which are not bad, few achievements and something great for people that are making their own levels in Stealth Bastard Deluxe: new features that make your own levels more fun. For price like this and how much fun you can get, it's great deal. But keep in mind, that you will probably enjoy this if you are fan of this game.
Less than decent.Furrek | Sept. 2, 2014 | Review of Borderlands 2 Captain Scarlett her Piratess Booty - PC
Not very much enjoyable DLC. So, what's good? Captain Scarlett character. That's all. Everything other is nothing special and nothing good compared to other DLCs for Borderlands 2. You are getting some vehicle, which suggest at first that it will be able to fly but it's not. Whole DLC is much easier, I did played it on high difficult setting but still there was no challenge. Some enemies you already fought in main game, boss fights are sad - same as the ending of this DLC. While it's understable for Tiny Tina's DLC, it's not for Captain Scarlett. When you will play it you will se what I'm talking about. This is DLC for biggest fans of Borderlands 2, if you are not one then there is nothing you are missing.
Fantasy Civilization.Furrek | Aug. 28, 2014 | Review of Warlock Master of the Arcane - PC
If you could as short as possible describe Warlock: Master of the Arcane, "fantasty civilization" would fit perfect. I can say this game is a must buy for Civilization fans. Somehow it feel like you are playing a mod for Civ5, but don't get me wrong, it's a good feel. Warlock: Master of the Arcane is really an addictive game. If you ever found yourself playing a turn-based strategy game for whole day or/and night, you experience this on again while playing this game. What I can complain about this game is difficult level - only when playing on highest setting you feel like you can have some challenge. On something easier you will get bored quickly and see that AI in Warlock is not a best one. Anyway, I think this is a must play for turn-based strategy games or Civilization games fans. You won't regret buying this game.
DLC Simulator 2014Furrek | Aug. 28, 2014 | Review of Train Simulator 2014 - PC
I would never guess that such sad times will come for gamers around the world. There are not many developers that release a FULL game without any addons that add more or less for game, soundtracks or other stuff. Back in days DLCs were big and around half price of normal game. What do we have in this Train "DLC" Simulator 2014? A tons of DLCs. What kind of DLCs? Well, probably some that you would like to see in game: new routes, trains... sound wonderful, that developers want to make this game bigger and bigger. So, where is the catch? There are for this moment 187 DLCs. Pretty much. It would be OK if they would charge 1-2 dollars/euros per train or map but... sadly, each DLC are for +/- 1000% of that. Which means, for all DLCs you need to pay (in euro) 2 936,13€. Don't waste your time and money on "games" like this. It's sick how developers are milking money from gamers and fan of train simulators.
Hope for better sequel.Furrek | Aug. 28, 2014 | Review of Space Pirates And Zombies - PC
Don't get me wrong - I think Space Pirates and Zombies is good game. I spent many hours playing it, but in my opinion this could be done a bit better. Which things? More diverse gameplay - there aren't much to do in quest or on next planets. More weapons or at least balanced weapons - once you will unlock specific weapon you won't need to change anything. It hurts gameplay alot. Sure, there are few types of weapons, but not all are effective. Also, this game is really long but not in a way you would like to spent so many hours in game. It's not like FTL but I know SPAZ didn't aimed to became same game, but there are really not much to fill these double digit hours to finish game. If you are fan of games in cosmic, you will have probably more fun that I did.
Double fun.Furrek | Aug. 21, 2014 | Review of Portal 2 (1) - PC
Finally a puzzle game, where you can play with another player! Did you loved first Portal? Then you will love even more this one. It's not only look better but, in my opinion, even more funny. I loved every conversation with GLaDOS. Puzzles are also sometimes more harder, but that's what makes this game so great. Doesn't matter if you wanna to play this alone, or with friend, you will have a great fun. Even if you will reach the end, it doesn't mean you can't play it anymore, or there won't be anything new. With edit tools and steam workshop there are tons of maps made by community - both for single and two players. Even if you don't like logic games, you will love this one. If you have someone to play with, do it. You won't regret it and you will have great time playing Portal 2.
A little zombie fun.Furrek | Aug. 21, 2014 | Review of Three Dead Zed Steam - PC
When it comes to zombies, everybody thinks about FPS games, or some survival horrors, or maybe adventure games. Zombie platformer? That's a good idea but not well made in this case. In Three Dead Zed you control 3 kind of zombies - each one can do something that the rest can't. So controling these 3 zombies you go and save some kitties. Sounds like fun and fresh idea, but sadly the game is boring. It doesn't have anything special that would catch my interest. Graphics looks normal, music is normal, just the idea of zombies that comes to rescue cats is kind of funny. At least before you tried to play this game. Also, it's quite easy and not so long game, so I wouldn't recommend it.
Simply arena game.Furrek | Aug. 21, 2014 | Review of Fairy Bloom Freesie - PC
Fairy Bloom Freesia is simply game where you fight waves of enemy's on small arena. It's not your typical game where you explore world, etc. but you simply fight and follow some story. Since story isn't that great, the only thing left is enjoying a fights. Is fighting good in this game? In my opinion, yes. It's not a game for long sessions, but if you have a few minutes and want to play something, Fairy Bloom Freesia is good choice. There are not many levels, but since you can upgrade your fighting ability (not only), this game can be replayed few times. And you can test your skill in Guardian Mode. Graphics and characters are cute, so if you like cute things you have one more reason to play Fairy Bloom Freesia.
The (almost) best of Valve.Furrek | Aug. 20, 2014 | Review of The Orange Box - PC
This pack would be complete if they added some Left 4 Dead game here, but well. It's one of packages that will deliver you infinite hours of fun. Starting from great Half Life 2 and episodes 1 and 2, to demanding Portal, and ending at one of the best multiplayer games ever - Team Fortress 2. Since Team Fortress 2 is a free to play game, activating Orange Box on your Steam account will give you a premium account to this game. This have a few nice features. These are games that are must play for everyone and will please every PC gaming player. And this pack is a best deal, getting everything seperate will cost you much more.
Retro fun.Furrek | Aug. 19, 2014 | Review of Dark Void Zero - PC
So Dark Void Zero is a retro platform game. What's cool about this game that it's not easy to beat. But sadly, only for first time. Once you will learn about all weapons, abilities and enemies, you will not have any trouble beating this game even on hard. As for retro-styled game, it have a cool graphics and great sounds. It really looks and feels like retro game. What's shame about Dark Void Zero is SecuROM - you have a 20 activation limit, which is just stupid. Another thing is that Dark Void Zero is really short game - it have a three worlds, and you will probably beat it in less than 1 hours. Well, it doesn't matter for players that want to beat all difficult levels or unblock all achievements, but for players that only want to complete game once it's not great deal. If you are a platformer games fan or if you like retro styled games - get it. Otherwise, you might skip this one.
Great slasher.Furrek | Aug. 17, 2014 | Review of Darksiders (1) - PC
I had no idea what Darksiders is until a few hours ago. I thought, it will be some adventure game, with some fighting and... well, that's all. Turned out that Darksiders is a really great slasher! When it comes to slashers, everybody thinks about Devil May Cry, or maybe some "clones". So what makes Darksiders a great game? Platform and puzzle elements! Since Devil May Cry and most of DMC-like games are focused only on action, Darksiders isn't packed like that. I feel that there is more platform/puzzle elements than action, but that's not a bad thing. What's important, that this game is fun. Gameplay is solid, graphics doesn't look so bad for game from 2010 year. The only bad thing is that game have some weird problem with achievements - if you want to game to unlock them, you must restart (exit and turn on again) steam every time you run Darksiders - otherwise, no achievements will unlock for you. Sadly, developers won't do anything about that. Still, what's important is gameplay and fun from game, and this game have everything to make it a great time when playing.
Gold game.Furrek | Aug. 17, 2014 | Review of Deus Ex Deus Ex Human Revolution Directors Cut - PC
And by gold game I mean that literally. It's beautiful color that fits great to cyberpunk game. Every step you make in this game, no matter where you look around, you see how developed technology is in Deus Ex: Human Revolution. What made me fall in love with this game? Starting from great atmosphere - it doesn't have just a few things that would make this game labelled as "cyberpunk" one, but the world in this game is very well made. Next thing is greatly interaction with characters - it's not only boring talks, but what you say to the person you are talking with will lead you to other outcomes. Another thing is that you can play however you like to - you don't even need to fight anyone (except boss fights) if you don't want to, there is also special achievement for doing that. Sound crazy, but it can be done. Sometimes trying to bypass your foes is easier then fighting them. Difficult level, even played on lowest setting, is still kinda hard. You are not invincible, few shots, or a good one in head, will make you start from last checkpoint. Story and music are also great. In my opinion, it's a title that everyone should play. Never played Deus Ex? Don't worry, it's a prequel to the other 2 main games. Director's Cut edition comes with DLC and additional commentary from developers, available when you are playing. It's a great deal for an amazing game like Deus Ex: Human Revolution.
Best pack of best games.Furrek | Aug. 15, 2014 | Review of DOOM Classic Complete - PC
These game were hit back in days. Like everyone was playing it, or wanted to play it. Everybody was talking about how great Doom is. This sure is legendary game. What is even more amazing, that people play it still after many years. People are still making mods for this game - to improve things, to make it more harder, or just fan levels. For game this old, it looks amazing. I mean, check out how animations looks, blood, enemies - everything fits perfect for horror fps game. ID Software were the ones that improved many things in gaming world, and Doom along with sequels is one of examples. This pack is everything you need to know about old gaming, or just for simply nostalgia feeling - it depend of if you have played it before or not. There are even players that still plays it online. For game this old to have active online community is truly amazing thing. You can't got wrong with Doom Classic Complete - no matter if you play it alone, or with someone.
Not like original Duke Nukem 2?Furrek | Aug. 13, 2014 | Review of Duke Nukem II - PC
First thing that probably everyone need to know - version of game realeased for steam is a little edited. Like, you can see it on screenshots up there. I didn't knew about that but saw for myself when someone on the internet complained about that. So what's different? There is missing option/help on the right side, on edited steam version of game is just a Duke Nukem's head. But the biggest different is that Duke have... glasses. What they did add them for? I don't get it. If you enjoy original game how they were back there, you will be kind dissapointed. Even if these are little changes it destroys a nostalgia feeling. But if you don't mind, Duke Nukem 2 is still great fun - like previous platform game, it lives to it's name. Score this low only because of edited things, if you don't mind about changes, add +20 to it.
Nice start for Millennium series.Furrek | Aug. 13, 2014 | Review of Millennium A New Hope Steam - PC
Millennium: A New hope is not a new game. It was released in 2k9 but then probably not many heard about developer called Aldorlea. But now, thanks to steam, many can discover this nice RPG game. What's cool about first Millennium game? It have a good story, interesting characters and it's not so short. Well, even if first game is not long enought, there are 4 more - it's quite long game series but trust me, worth buying and playing. With every next part you see a little improvements, what's really good thing. Anyway, what I really love about this game is the fact that it was made in RPG Maker. Probably every fan of not AAA RPG games heard about it, but it only shows that with cool ideas you can make something interesting, even if you don't make your games on some hard to use engines/programming languages etc. Well, maybe you don't as well to have some skill for graphics, but that's different story... If you enjoy a great RPG games that aren't made by well known developers, buy Millennium: A New Hope. I'm sure you will enjoy it as I did.
Unexpected hard.Furrek | Aug. 8, 2014 | Review of Flyn - PC
When I started to play Fly'n I thought it will be fun and easy game. I wasn't mistaken, it's fun game, but I can't say it easy. Maybe when you start to play with one Bud, but as you start to have more of them, when you reach all four, then it start to be really hard game. I mean, sometimes you must combine skills of all of Buds, which is not easy to do. I guess this is what I like the most in this game. Also, "boss" fights. Each boss stage was greatly done. Fly'n doesn't have any "fireworks" graphics, it's simply, but really nice looking game. Music also fits into game. If you are fan of platformer games, or enjoy mix of platformer and puzzle games that are getting harder with every next level you are playing - get Fly'n.
Play in co-op only.Furrek | Aug. 8, 2014 | Review of Hunted The Demons Forge - PC
Playing this game is in co-op is the only way to enjoy it. Otherwise, you might have a hard time enjoying it. What's Hunted: The Demons Forge? From the very begging I had a feeling that this is a Gears of War clone game. The only different is Hunted have fantasy setting, and Gears of War is made much better. The story in Hunted is decent, graphics are not outstanding, music is normal. The number of types of monsters could be a little bigger, but there are still a few of them. Instead of having fun in story mode and playing it with friend, I had much more fun building my own dungeons. You can select type of stage, type of monsters, how strong you want them to be, bosses etc. That sounds like a great fun and it is, but it would be even more fun if this dungeon builder could use more freedom - it's veeery limited. You can use it only for something like "horde" mode, where you kill waves of monsters. That's it. If you have someone to play with, you can't miss it, but if you plan to play this alone - give up.
Boring, repetetive, boring, repetetive.Furrek | Aug. 8, 2014 | Review of Assassins Creed UPLAY - PC
I had high expectations from Assassin's Creed. Every game magazine, gaming websites and gamers rated this game very high. So when I started it, everything was OK. The story seemed interesting, completing the first "mission", if I can call it this way, made me think that I will have a great time. Being an assassin - cool. Fighting elements, jumping from building to building and climbing them, I don't remember playing a game like that in ages. Both graphics and music are nice. Aaaand this is when the let down comes on the stage. The whole game is so repetetive, that after two or three "missions" I was bored. Sure, I completed it, but I swear to myself that I won't play the next games named Assassin's Creed. Whole game looks like that: Talk, travel to old times, go from point A to B, jump, kill someone, run away, back to present times, repeat. I feel somehow cheated. Great game? Start of great game series? This is not what anyone would expect from action adventure game like that. Games used to be more creative, especially in this genre. Maybe Assassin's Creed had potential, but somehow it was wasted. From my experience, I can't recommend this to anyone.
Realistic multiplayer game.Furrek | Aug. 7, 2014 | Review of Red Orchestra 2 Heroes of Stalingrad - PC
Remember previous Red Orchestra game? It was made well and realistic. Red Orchestra 2: Heroes of Stalingrad is even better. Look how many years have passed since previous game! What does that mean? Red Orchestra 2 made it to new game standards - even if graphics is not most important thing in game, somehow they need to look to appeal players that have no idea what this game is about. Aside from graphics, the music and sounds are made even more realistic. How you use weapon, how it's feel to use them, it haven't changed - I mean, it is still high level of how real they are. The only thing that got harder is getting in this game. You will die thousand of time before you will learn to how play, nobody will go easy on you. It won't take a hour or two to be good player. Well, nobody said that war is easy. This is what I really like in Red Orchestra 2. Despite fact that games are trying to be more easy and friendly for players, Tripwire Interactive made a challenging game, that require from you a very high skill and heavy teamwork in order to win. Good job! If you are bored with multiplayer games which require from you nothing more than pressing left mouse button - buy Red Orchestra 2.
Must play for Gothic games fans.Furrek | Aug. 6, 2014 | Review of Risen 2014 - PC
This is exacly what I wanted to Gothic 3 for be. But Gothic 3 was... huge let down for fans. Everybody had a reason for their love for Gothic series. I loved big world, nice characters, great story, awesome music in Gothic 1 and 2 (also in expansion). Risen is same game, but not exacly, that gives you everything that cRPG fans would want to see. This game is filled with stuff that will catch you interest. Like, you will never do a straight walk from one quest to another, because you will try to take a detour, where you will probably meet only some dangerous things, or something will catch your eye. "Why is there a building in middle of swamps?", "Why is there some strange character standing?". What's really interesting in Risen is that some quest have a few ways to make them. This will decide to who you really belong to. Risen is beatiful game. Sometimes I just like to sit down and look around how well it was made. Risen is that kind of game, where you can enjoy the world exploring. If you loved first Gothic games, or are you looking for something where you can spend hundreds fighting, exploring world, gather stuff - this game is for you.
Charming plaformer.Furrek | Aug. 3, 2014 | Review of Alice Madness Returns Origin - PC
Everyone know probably about Alice and her adventures in Wonderland, but this is kinda different from what you might know as kid. It's much more deep and dark story. What I think is wonderful in this game is... Wonderland. Exploring every next level is a great experience. Each level have a unique atmosphere and style, so you won't get bored after playing few hours in one sitting. Beating every next level will reward you with some nice clother for Alice! It's nice to see that main character wear something more than 1 pair of clothes. The levels are also made well for platformer game - you will have sometimes a hard time looking for a way to move forward. The only one boring thing are 2d scroll levels - there are way too many of them and they are similar to each other. Anyway, not only platformer mechanics are good, but also the fighting system is made well. Fighting every enemy is different, and you will need to use other weapons than just default knife. What's left is music, it's nice but not something that you will remember. If you are looking for nice looking and enjoyable platformer with good fighting system - it's game for you. The good thing is that if you are fan of unlocking every possible thing, you will need to play this game more than just one time. So many hours for this much is reasonable offer.
SUDA51 finally on PC!Furrek | Aug. 3, 2014 | Review of Killer is Dead Nightmare Edition 2014 - PC
Michigan: Report from Hell, No More Heroes, Killer7, Shadows of the Damned or Lollipop Chainsaw... those titles alone would make you think what kind of game Killer is Dead is and how much of genius SUDA51 is. Good thing is, Killer is Dead is one of titles that is also really good and worth playing. Starting from something unique - graphics. It's nothing like you ever see before. There is also hectoliters of blood and really beatiful womans. And just when I said about womans, there is a special mode that allow you to date some of them - and see how they look in only underwear with your specials glasses... yup. There is also a stunning nurse! Aside from the main reason I picked up this game, this is a solid slasher. It's not a long game, but have a high replayability - for each episode you get scores, there is a higher difficult level, side missions and gigolo mode (this dating stuff). Also look at that price! It's a great deal for a SUDA51 game. If you are looking for some different, but a really amazing game with interesting game mechanics and story - get it.
Good as always.Furrek | Aug. 2, 2014 | Review of Grand Theft Auto IV Steam - PC
So GTA 4 was the first game in series that I managed to complete. Don't have wrong idea, I spent many hours in every GTA game but this one for some reason was more interesting for me. Starting from a great characters, even more great graphics and good music! As for now, it's most "realistic" Grand Theft Auto game on PC - the way people are hitted by car, how they are moving, how you fight etc. it's just something amazing. These simply things, like running at people when they are on stars and watch them falling, shows how much work develeper put in this game. Rockstar once proves that they know what they are doing and with every next GTA game they do even better and more amazing stuff. Does a game like that need any recommendation? It's a game that should be played when out, because for so many years Rockstar showed us that we can trust them. 99/100 from me because of GFWL.
Last good Command and Conquer game?Furrek | Aug. 1, 2014 | Review of Command Conquer Red Alert 3 Origin - PC
I know it's not same Red Alert or Command and Conquer game, but that's probably last title in the series that I enjoyed. Well, not as the previous games, but this one is not bad. Like in any C&C, in Red Alert 3 there are also short movies with real actors, but it may be just be, that some of them were just... bad. I wasn't so excited watching them. As for campaign, you are able to play as Allies, Soviets and Rising Sun. The most fun of all were probably Rising Sun, but sadly all of campaigns were mildly interesting. The only good thing from this game were probably skirmishes with other players, or playing the whole game in coop, which I did. Since online isn't available, get this game only if you want to play alone. Also I don't think so that EA will think about running this game online anymore.
Fun magic.Furrek | July 31, 2014 | Review of Magicka - PC
With few elements you can create many interesting spells - like lasers, or some fire spells to burn up your enemies (and friends). Why friends? For fun. Even if it's a game mostly for cooperation, you can still fight with eachother and check out who is a better wizard. What's a really shame in this game, are DLCs. There are some that contain a few new and interesting levels, but some of them are just useless stuff. Well, you still can enjoy this game by yourself, or with friends, without buying any of DLCs. I think Magicka is worth buying, but if you like to have "complete" games - then you might want to rethink idea of buying this game - with the price of getting full set of DLCs you can get something more interesting.
Enjoyable trip.Furrek | July 31, 2014 | Review of Fallout 3 - PC
What I really did enjoyed in Fallout 3 was exploring the world. I mean, who wouldn't want go on journey in post nuclear world? That's how I enjoyed my Fallout 3 game. I didn't used a fast travel, because why? There are so many things to saw, to check in Fallout 3 world, it would be a waste to fast travel from place to place. So every time when I saw some new place I was excited. Because there would be so many useless items that I would carry back to my home. This way, somehow, I managed to finish the game. I did spent probably 10x more hours to do it, but I don't think it was wasted time. Of course, everybody will have their own style while playing this game. I did what I thought that will be most fun. I'm looking forward to playing DLCs, because they add some more content to this big game. Doesn't matter if you are Fallout fan or not, if you enjoy big open world games, where you don't need to follow only story, then get it.
Great game with normal difficult settings.Furrek | July 31, 2014 | Review of Commandos Behind Enemy Lines - PC
Back then games weren't so easy like nowadays. Each of them required from player to become better with next level/part of game, so it would be exciting. It would also demand from player to be better as he plays the game. Commandos: Behind Enemy Lines is a game like that. Notice that setting of the game in the time of WW2 and playing as small squad of elite troopers trying to get "Behind Enemy Lines" seem like not easy task. So each of those troopers have their unique skills - one can use explosion materials, while other can disguise himself as enemy's soldier. You will need to think of really good strategy and use of each trooper skills, because without that, you will be killed with few bullets. And no, you will not respawn few seconds later, you will in most cases need to start from beginning. The only thing I never managed to try out is multiplayer. Despite the fact it doesn't have multiplayer listed in modes, you can play this one with some friends. Maybe some day I will try it. If you are looking for something challenging, a game that need from you a great tactics and strategy - get Commandos.
Classic that cannot be missed.Furrek | July 31, 2014 | Review of Septerra Core Legacy of the Creator - PC
What I really love in old games are unique atmosphere that they were creating, great stories and different mechanics that made each other so fun to play. It's a really long game for many nights (or days, if you have time to play games when there is sun still up) with a interesting story. I bet "key features" like 200 locations would now make many players to laugh, but back then it was a something to be proud of. Well, it's not like nowadays games have so many different and climatic locations. Exploring the world of Septerra Core can really be addictive, with so many interesting characters with each one have their own voice. I'm glad that game like this is selling even after many years, it's good that old players can play it again, and maybe that new players can see how good games were made so many years ago. If you are looking for good game, this one is must buy.
Multiplayer without players.Furrek | July 31, 2014 | Review of Ravaged - PC
Not exacly, but it's almost dead game. Ravaged: Zombie Apocalypse have a few nice multiplayer modes, but if you ever want try to play with someone, you are forced to play one, where you collect gasoline and try to run away from map filled with dangerous zombies. The maps are quite big, so you will need a vehicles to move around, but these also need something to run on, so you can be unlucky and in middle of ride your fuel can just end. There are many weapons which you can use to kill our dead friends - but like usually in big maps filled with zombies, sniper rifle is my favorite. The only bad thing is, the shooting doesn't feel right. You can compare it to bad shooting system like it is in this famous Aliens game made by Gearbox. Is this game worth buying? Nope. You can skip this one and look around for better games like that, because there are plenty of them.
What happened, Trainz?Furrek | July 30, 2014 | Review of Trainz Simulator 2012 Steam - PC
I remember playing you from the very first game. You were fun, you were great. Best train simulation game. But now... graphics are nice, but always been, so it's nothing new in Trainz Simulator 2012. Variety of places to drive, building your own maps are cool. But the options for that are just hard to use. The most annoying this is probably user interface. I had sometimes really hard time looking for option that I needed. Also, what's wrong with all these DLCs? There is no need for that... Trainz Simulator 2012 have backward compatibility, so you can use content from 2010 version in this one, which is nice thing. It also have a multiplayer option, but sadly I didn't had time to try it out, so can't say a thing about it. If you are big fan of these simulators - get yourself this game, but if you are still enjoying previous, or maybe some other, train simulator games - no need to rush, because you could be a bit dissapointed with TS 2012.
Best narration ever.Furrek | July 30, 2014 | Review of Bastion Steam - PC
So before I played Bastion I did read this everywhere in internet: great narration, beatiful game, must play etc. Yes, I must agree, and probably everyone should too, that this game have a best narration ever that was in video games. Sure, there are plenty of great ones, but I think I like the one in Bastion the most. For this thing alone Bastion is worth buying and playing. Another thing that is great in Bastion is music. It build a really great atmosphere in game. When I'm talking about great things in Bastion, I can't forget graphics - it's simply beautiful. Those three things make this game worth getting. While narration, music and graphics are solid, the other things could be a bit better - I'm talking about gameplay mechanics. They are not bad, but it's a very action RPG game. Few weapons, not so many difficult fights. Sure, you can use special shop to make your game ever harder, but once you learn to use every weapon then nothing is gonna be a challenge. Still, this should be played by everyone. If not for gameplay, then at least for those three amazing things that I, and mostly everyone else, mentioned.
Easy to beat, hard to get everything.Furrek | July 30, 2014 | Review of Croixleur Sigma - PC
I think beating Croixleur Sigma for the first time is like ending a tutorial - it teaches you about game, mechanics, enemies, your character. So it's not a game where a story, even if it's not much a story or not something complex, is important thing. It's all about making a huge combos, beating scores, unlocking new things. I think achievements also takes a huge spot in this game - I mean, there are achievements for clearing challenges, defeating XXXX monsters or beating the game without using continues and reaching the boss in less than 10 minutes. It motivates player to just... play the game, I guess. Well, some don't need a motivation, but for those that don't find a beating worldwide or own scores, it's a great prize, of course if you are into getting achievements. Graphics are cute, music is decent, the cool thing is that the voice of characters is japanese. If you are looking for a game to play in short sittings, and you enjoy doing combos, beating scores, killing tons of monsters - get it.
Next level of graphics.Furrek | July 30, 2014 | Review of Far Cry UPLAY - PC
There were few games that made some kind of revolution in gaming. What I mean, Far Cry was one of those games. Most people remember how 3D games was looking back in 2004. Until Far Cry was out. Maybe screenshots here doesn't show how beautiful 10 years old 3D game can be, but just check 1st video under "Far Cry max settings". Does it look like a game from so many years ago? It looks even better than some games from last year! I remember that my PC back then wasn't able to play Far Cry like that, but with nowadays PCs, I'm sure that everyone can enjoy the beauty of this game. Look at the water, look at the plants, or trees... It's amazing what could be done in the times when gaming wasn't so realistic looking. Far Cry will be always remembered by me as the game that made some progress in gaming history.
Best Star Wars game.Furrek | July 29, 2014 | Review of Star Wars Jedi Knight Jedi Academy MAC - PC
First time I played Jedi Academy in 2003. I had bad internet then, so I just played single player campaign and it was great. So great and enjoyable, that I beat it on every possible settings. What makes this game really amazing are light saber battles. Sure, some says that battle mode in Star Wars Jedi Knight II: Jedi Outcast was better, but I liked it more in Jedi Academy. So when I finally got better internet, I tried this game online. This game have infinite potential with online matches. Even after so many years, there are still active players that just love to fight with others. You can choose a single light saber, dual, or two light sabres. There is one thing that's also important when it come to battles - place, where you duel others. Do you have your favorite place from Star Wars movies? Don't worry, I'm sure it's available as map for Jedi Academy from community sites. Also the playerbase are nice, after many years only true fans are still playing it and they welcome any new player and teach them a thing or two about game and how to play better online. Sure, it's nothing lie it was few years ago, but still you won't have a trouble to find a players to play with together. I think Jedi Academy is the only game where i truly felt like I'm a Jedi, that's why I love this game.
Remake worth playing.Furrek | July 29, 2014 | Review of Boulder Dash XL - PC
Not sure if I can call this a remake, or a sequel, but I know one thing - that sure is Bolder Dash game that is worth playing. With so many levels (about 150) divided in different worlds, this game will last longer than for one night. Also, with so many modes, for example: time challenge, where you try to beat levels in specified time limit, to get silver or gold trophy. If I remember well, silver's not so hard to get, but for gold one you need to know level and every shortcut you can make to save some time. Online ranking makes this game even more replayable, if you are up for some competition. Also there is some retro for retro fans ;) This is the best, and probably only one, game that tried to revive legendary Boulder Dash. I think it went really well. Sure, it's not as good as legend itself, but still a great title that is worth every money and time spent in.
Race through heavens.Furrek | July 29, 2014 | Review of Skydrift Pack - PC
So when it comes to racing games, everybody thinks about some F1, Need for Speed, Grid, or put_there_another_racing_game. All "grounded" games. How about moving to next level and make some races in the sky? This is what SkyDrift is. It's not some simulation racer or serious game. It's just a arcade racing game above ground. You will not only need to make it in first place, but also in one piece. There is tournament mode, survival and speedrace for single player. But that's not all. You can play this game also in multiplayer! This pack contains some bonuses, such as deathmatch and team deathmatch, where you don't need to be first, but just to kill everyone else. Other DLC is just a few planes, not sure if there is anything to say about it. Anyway, if you are looking for kind of other racing game, try it. I'm sure you will have some fun.
Pack of one of the best tycoon games.Furrek | July 29, 2014 | Review of Tropico Reloaded steam - PC
Tycoon, sim game, strategy or just dictator simulation... no matter how you will describe this game, the title says everything. Tropico, like tropic island. Tropico Reloaded is pack of 3 games: Tropico, expansion set for Tropico and Tropico 2. Those 3 games will manage to eat every free hours in your daily life. The options of how you can play in Tropico are many. You build and try (or not) to make your own people happy, provide them food and house, and try to make as much money as you can from tourist. There are plenty of scenarios but trust me, most fun in games like that are free play/sandbox mode, where you do whatever you want, building your own tropic empire to be to your like. Paradise Island (expansion for Tropico 1) give you even more buildings, new tourists and scenarios. As for Tropico 2, instead of selling your own products you are a pirate, plundering a innocent people and selling their goods. As for people catched... just ransom their families, or make they your own slaves! Tropico 2 is much different game from the first one, but it's also amazing. It will sure deliver thousands of hours, Tropico: Reloaded is must have for people that are looking for great tycoon games.
The best Discipless 3 you can get.Furrek | July 29, 2014 | Review of Disciples III GOLD - PC
Disciples III Gold is pack of two games: Disciples III: Renaissance and Disciples III: Resurrection. They are as two in one. What's awesome in Disciples III Gold? Most of the errors and problems with both Disciples 3 games were fixed. It have many hours of good gameplay - ever played Disciples I, or Disciples II? The 3rd one is also great. Not exacly better, I guess it's the same case as Heroes of Might and Magic, where 3rd game is something that will never get a better sequel. Disciples is still the same game - playing one of factions you are fighting with others in the land of Nevendaar. In my opinion, Disciples III looks similar to Heroes of Might and Magic 5. So if you are fan of this game, or just a Disciples fan, get it and play it. You will not beat this game in one day, even one whole week will be not enough. That's a great thing, in a times when games are just few hours long.
Developers forgot how to make tycoon games.Furrek | July 29, 2014 | Review of Airline Tycoon 2 Steam - PC
PC gaming ten years ago was much more better if it comes to tycoon games. Now all we get are some sequels, that are trying to be better but are just worse. As fan of first Airline Tycoon game, I didn't like this one much. It doesn't feel like good, old Airline Tycoon. Maybe if it had different title, I could play it as another tycoon game, but I had a high expectations and was disappointed. I feel like whole game is just a big joke - not a real planes, very long loading time even on a great machines, DLCs that gives you a feel that they were part of game from the beggining but cut off for some, I guess money, reason and ugly 3D graphics. Kalypso might like having fun with doing 3D experiments, but that's not what makes a game playable. The only sad thing is, there are not much old tycoon games avaible to buy, so we are somehow forced to play games like that. Well, if someone is hungry for tycoon game and will play anything - noone other I can recommend this... game.
Had more fun with the first one.Furrek | July 28, 2014 | Review of Borderlands 2 MAC - PC
This is just my review about this game, keep that in mind. Borderlands 2 is a game where there is more of new everything. Starting from new character classes, which I don't find any more unique than the ones from Borderlands 1. New gun system? I had more fun with weapons from Borderlands 1. Not sure what's new here, because there was already weapons with fire, electricity and other elementals, maybe just one or two things that are other, but I don't think it will make a whole gun system "new". Maybe I wasn't so lucky, or haven't played long enough (is about 50 hours long enough?) but I didn't managed to notice and millions of weapons combinations - most of them were same, or slightly better, no drastic changes. Story is just fine, only Handsome Jack was an interesting character. Well, at least to the certain moment which was... lame. I don't want to spoil anything, so I can't say that, but if you will reach a end of game you will see. So before everybody will eat me, I must tell that DLCs for this game is a different story. They are much more interesting, so far I did played 2 of them, but I have much more fun than playing Borderlands 2 main story. I'm sure that this game should be played by everyone - but some people might just not like this like first game. Just remember about one thing - just like in Borderlands 1 case, play it with friends only, or find some online friends. It's totally unplayable alone, because it's not game you want and you can play alone.
Not a typical RPG game.Furrek | July 28, 2014 | Review of 99 Spirits Steam - PC
Sure, there are RPG elements, but I wouldn't call this game a pure RPG one. What's really interesting in 99 Spirits is fight system. You are dealing damage, defend yourself and when monster's HP is gone, you need to write down a name of this monster in order to get rid of him. It's not that simple, and the only way to identify a monster is by some hints that you are getting from certain skill, but that what's fun in this game. The characters and monsters are well drawn, music is amazing and voices - if you are fan of japanese voices then you can play with them turned on! 99 Spirits is a game for many hours, there is even a DLC avaible. This game might interest people who loves japanese folklore, or are simply looking for some nice and unique game. I'm glad that after many years of playing games there are still developers that have a fresh ideas and can put them in games.
Everybody loves worms.Furrek | July 28, 2014 | Review of Worms - PC
They are pink, wriggly and very, very dangerous. Since the beggining of Worms series this game had one objective - total war. No matter if you have played new Worms games, it still same fun playing - with friends, or with computer player. Sure, it's not fun to play with AI, but since this one don't have multiplayer option and finding some friend in real life that love good old Worms would be hard, it's the only way to enjoy this game. Getting this game for the purpose of seeing how much Worms developed is also good idea. I mean, it's all remained same but was polished over the years. It's a hard work to make something good even better, and I think Team 17 is the best when it comes to that. I'm also glad that game that old make it one Steam - there are many players that just love classics, and having everything in one place is comfortable. Playing original Worms after so many years is just amazing.
Best Duke Nukem ever.Furrek | July 27, 2014 | Review of Duke Nukem Manhattan Project - PC
First thing - it's back to the roots of game! Finally another Duke Nukem that is a great platform game. Second thing - it's in 3D! Ok, it doesn't look great, but still, it's Duke Nukem. Not matter how delivered, he is the king. Back in 2002, there was a special edition of this game in my country - it was with a t-shirt with Duke Nukem: Manhattan Project logo. This t-shirt was so comfortable and badass that I was wearing it until it was totally destroyed. Even kids at school were saying that it's a cool t-shirt - that's the power of Duke Nukem! About the game: 8 chapters divided in 3 parts, many bad guys to kill, some nice ladies to rescue. Like Duke Nukem would say: "Babes, bullets, bombs. Damn - I love this job!". Duke Nukem: Manhattan Project have quite nice base of quotes and references to some movies, songs or other games. My favorite is "Life is like a box of ammo.", which quote is from a... you can quess, because it's from movie that probably everyone saw. In my opinion, it's a game worth every price - for Duke Nukem fans ofcourse. If you aren't one, well, maybe you should change something in your life!
Good, but empty.Furrek | July 26, 2014 | Review of Red Orchestra Ostfront 4145 - PC
This game was something few years ago. There were tons of servers and people to play with, but not it's just kind of empty. Maybe, if you have a friends to play with, or play in time when other fans of Red Orchestra are playing, then you might consider getting it. Sadly, most of players moved to Red Orchestra 2. But anyway, about Red Orchestra: Ostfront 41-45 - it's a hell of hard game and even more to get good at it. It's not like other online FPS games, it's more realistic. With every new kill you will feel satisfaction, not like in games where in one respawn you kill half of enemy's team. What I love in this game are authentic weapons - when you use them, you feel the power they hold. Maps are cool and big enough to have some fun, and they are also different from all these games with few rooms where they close players and they make just meaningless slaughter. If you feel like trying out this old multiplayer game, do it. But be prepared that you might have hard time finding somebody to play with. There are some communities, so you will need to look around to find them. Tihs is only reason for my 60/100 for this game, if there wasn't problem with emptiness, then I would gladly give this game a 80-90/100.
Day when WW2 ended in games.Furrek | July 26, 2014 | Review of Call of Duty 4 Modern Warfare - PC
I really loved Call of Duty set up on World War 2. These games were amazing. At first I was sceptical about Modern Warfare, but turned out that there wasn't need for that. It's great game. Many players will tell that it was when Call of Duty started to fall, but I don't think so. It's great title and worth playing, have great story, cool characters and what's important - have amazing multiplayer. It's game from 2007 but still have a pretty big and active multiplayer community. Going back to story in Call of Duty: Modern Warfare, the only thing I can complain is time you need to beat game - when I first played it, if I'm not mistaken it was on normal difficult level, I beat the game in 4 hours. Not something you would expect from any game. If you count the time to beat game on other, harder difficult levels, then it's not bad. Still, MW1 started to be game focused on multiplayer, not a game for single player. If you don't plan to play this online, and you don't beat games few times on harder difficult levels, then I'm not sure if buying this is great deal. Maybe, if you are Call of Duty fan, or looking for something for one night. Otherwise, look around, there are plenty of longer games with more options for one player.
Great memories.Furrek | July 25, 2014 | Review of Fallout Tactics - PC
I do remember playing it back when this game was out. This is probably ma favorite Fallout game. As kid, I didn't understand well what should do and where I need to go in Fallout 1 and 2, but this one is easier to get into. Some people call it the worst of Fallout games, well, everyone have their own opinions. Anyway about Fallout Tactics, playing in turn modes this one was great. You could, like even title says, play it tactical. You don't need to rush anywhere, you can set your own pace and explore Fallout Tactics world, which is pretty big. What is also great, is multiplayer. I'm not sure if you are still able to play online, but I had really good time playing this game on GameSpy Arcade. There were tons of players, even clans, playing in teams and fighting each other. You could run on each other, stealthy approach enemy or just camp in some building waiting for targets. Even if you are fan of Fallout 1 or 2, or maybe of some of new Fallout games, this one is worth playing. It's one of these series that every game is at least worth checking, because you never know - maybe you will enjoy it as much as I did.
Great and kinda old game.Furrek | July 25, 2014 | Review of Painkiller Black Edition Steam - PC
I got Painkiller: Black Edition, when it wasn't Black. I mean, few years ago both games were realesed separately. It was made by developers from my country, so it was Day 1 buy for me. When first time I played Painkiller I was simply happy - it was something that I never experienced before. Game is so well made, that there isn't anything you can complain about. It sure is dark and have horror atmosphere, filled with fast and enjoyable action, making every next level more enternaining. Painkiller have this one weapon, not sure how it's called in english, but it could fasten your enemy's to walls. God, how many hours I spent just doing that. My all time favorite thing in Painkiller will be weapons - there are few to choice, but if I remember well, every weapon have two ways to use it. You can also play this on really demaning difficult level, so if you are looking for challenge, some fun game, with great weapons - Painkiller: Black Edition is for you. It comes with normal Painkiller and Battle out of Hell, which is even more hard and fun to play.
Better than first one.Furrek | July 25, 2014 | Review of Poker Night 2 - PC
Poker Night 2 is way better than first game. Why? It's simply - it's just better. Starting from beggining, it's still fun and casual poker game. In my opinion, this one have better characters - or maybe it's because I know all of them. Anyway, the second game have a few more options and something that will make you win easier. Drinks. Lot of them. You can order drinks for your opponents and they will be more likely to make some mistakes. In Poker Night 2 you can also unblock some items, but not only for Team Fortress 2, but also for Borderlands 2! Fans of both games should be happy with this. If you liked the first Poker Night, I'm sure you will like this one too.
My favorite GTA in 3D.Furrek | July 9, 2014 | Review of Grand Theft Auto III Steam - PC
Let me say that I have played every PC Grand Theft Auto games. And this, Grand Theft Auto III, is my favorite one. Why? Maybe because it was first GTA game in full 3D. I remember when I tried to run this on Pentium 2, with some old graphic card and 256mb RAM. I know that I met some, but not all, system requirments, but it still was all time stuck on loading screen. I was weird kid, because I did even prayed to God for this to run on my old PC. After some time I finally was able to play it, and it was the first game that I played on new gaming rig. First impression? "Best game ever". Really, I spent many thousand of hours playing Grand Theft Auto 3. Sadly, I never managed to 100% complete it. I always loved to starting riot on the road, or covering myself in some nice place and killing people with sniper riffle. Or just hitting them with car. Music in this one is really good. To be honest, every GTA game have great soundtracks. Flashback 95.6 and DJ Toni FTW! I can't imagine that everyone will love this game. Maybe, if you want to see how the first 3D GTA was, or you just love to playing old games. This game was out in 2002, and it was something amazing for the gaming world. But, that's Rockstar. Everytime they realease a new GTA game it become something wonderful.
Worse than first Red Faction, but still good shooter.Furrek | July 9, 2014 | Review of Red Faction II - PC
Red Faction II is worse than original. Why? It just became a normal fps game. Remember what maked Red Faction 1 so great? Second game is missing this all. Another very bad thing is, that this game doesn't have multiplayer. Sure, you can play against BOTS, but that's all. Don't get mistaken by "multiplayer" on steam store or here. You can't call that multiplayer, if you can't play it online. The console version of this game had split-screen, so you could play it with friends together (in this so called "multiplayer" option), but sadly PC version doesn't have something like that. For the story, it's decent, I liked Red Faction 1 more. You can compare the sequel of Red Faction with the F.E.A.Rs sequels - it's not what original was, but if you are fan, you should play it. Well, Red Faction 2 is also nothing like new Red Faction games, so I guess only fans of the old RF will have some fun. Also, if you like some old school shooters, grab it.
Classic multiplayer game that will never die.Furrek | July 7, 2014 | Review of Counter Strike - PC
This game was played everywhere, by everyone. Like, if you are a gamer, and you like multiplayer games, there is no way that you have never played Counter Strike. It's suprising simply game, but everything depend on two things: First one - your own skill. This was my probably first game, and Counter Strike is probably one of not many games where skill counts not your wallet, where individual skill of every player is so important. Another thing is teamwork. It's team versus team game. You can play 6vs6, or even 12vs12, depend on server that you are playing one. Sure, you can kill everyone in enemy's team, but it will require very high skill. You can't go wrong with Counter Strike. It's just a perfect online game. If you will get bored (in which I doubt), there are few interesting mods. You don't need to trust my, or other gamers, reviews. It's a Valve game. They know how to make great games.
Fine for co-op purpose.Furrek | July 5, 2014 | Review of Borderlands - PC
When I first time saw Borderlands it was advertised as "Diablo as FPS game", or something like that. It was few years ago so I don't remember it well, but that was a reason for me to pick up this game. So when I did, at first I had great time. I didn't played it alone, so the fun was doubled. Finding new weapons with random stats and colors, getting new levels, skills, fighting harder and harder enemies - yup, for a time it seemed like FPS Diablo game. Well, the only thing is, this game is only fun when you are playing with friends. Playing alone this game would be so boring. It's one of these games where you just need someone to play with. After finishing this game for the first time I tried to play a bit alone and I was bored. As for the game, it's not like it's amazing, one in a kind etc. It's just a fun co-op title, that you will enjoy. You might want to check the DLCs, because they were more fun then main game.
Many great memories.Furrek | July 5, 2014 | Review of Actua Soccer 3 - PC
I remember that I got this game with some magazine. It was many years ago, and I'm sure that it won't work on new computers. How is steam version? Well, you still can have problems with running that, but if you aren't using Windows 8 then you might get it. About game, well, it's soccer. This was my first, and my last, soccer game that I really did enjoyed. I still remember that I tried to shoot some goals with goalkeeper and I did. There was also this strange bug, where you could get a score from the side of goal. Not sure if I could find it now, maybe it got patched, but still have many great memories about this game. That's all. I can't recommend it to new players. Maybe if you are fan of 90's soccer, or you have played it long time ago. It's also a fine game for fans of old games. In other cases, just get yourself a fifa or pro evolution soccer game.
Childhood memories.Furrek | July 5, 2014 | Review of Mortal Kombat Arcade Kollection (1) - PC
Not exacly a great memories for a child but remember, that it's just a game. I often played this game with my friends. We liked to beat each other (in game) and see liters of blood coming out of fighters bodies. My favorite was always Sub-Zero. It's great that I can play these games once again, after many years. It's almost flawless pack, but one thing... Games for Windows Live. If you don't mind going a massive troubles with this sad service, then get this pack. You might enjoy once again this great fighting game, and sequels. New players, that missed era when Mortal Kombat was something you just must have played, will probably not enjoy old fighting games at all. But still, if you are interested what's Mortal Kombat is, there is a new one, that will probably suit nowaday players more.
Another great co-op, another sad game in series.Furrek | July 5, 2014 | Review of Resident Evil 6 - PC
Starting from bad things, Jake Muller is a biggest mistake Capcom ever made. Why? Well, you will probably need to play this game to know this, and I'm sure that you can agree with me. Another is that once again we see same characters. Resident Evil universum have many interesting characters - why use always same? I wouldn't mind seeing Claire, Barry, Billy (from RE Zero) or Rebecca. Why it is once again Leon and Chris? The next thing that RE6 is missing any puzzles. I don't really remember any, and I did completed this game few times playing each scenario. So starting with good things, you can play 3 main scenarios and 1 mini one in RE6. That means, even if you didn't liked one, you might like another. Each scenario is different from another. Cooperation is great as always, and it is probably the only way to enjoy this game. Story is decent, but bosses are great. Well, I find them great, they remind me of some other big mutant that were in past RE series. If I'm not mistaken, this Resident Evil game is also the first one where you can shoot and run. I didn't liked it. You should play Resident Evil 6 if you have a partner to coop games. If you don't have one, maybe you are looking for good action game? But only, if you are looking for pure action, not for some nice story etc. At least, try it if you are a fan of new RE series.
Warning! This game can be addicting!Furrek | July 4, 2014 | Review of Sid Meiers Civilization V - PC
I think I never was fan of Civilization series, or maybe I never had enough time to start and sit a bit more than hours or two. Not so long ago I tried 5th Civilization game. In one sitting I played this game for 8 hours. 3 out of 8 hours in tutorial - because I was in need to know everything and there was nothing I didn't knew in normal game. Rest of them was my first campaing. I did choose a small map, because of time, and completed it in first sitting. After this time I know one thing - this game is so addicting! Each turn maybe don't take so much time, and you are just playing next one, and next one, and maybe one more, when the thought comes into your mind: "Holy cow, it's really this late?". If you have a real life, you are going to school or work, don't try to play this game. Do it after, or maybe on weekends. It will really eat many hours from your life. This game can be played as long as you want, and multiplayer sessions seems like never ending story...
Casual and funny poker game.Furrek | July 4, 2014 | Review of Poker Night at the Inventory - PC
This game is only funny when you know the characters that you are playing poker with. I knew 3 out of 4 characters and I got most of lines, but still without knowing all characters and where are they from, this game will be just a casual, not interesting poker game. There is another reason that might get your into buying this game. In Poker Night at the Inventory you can win items that can be used in... Team Fortress 2! It's a great thing for collectors, you can not only get to see Heavy and how good (or bad) he is at cards, but also you will earn some items. If you are looking just for a poker game, and you are not interested in getting some nice items for your Team Fortress 2 characters, then you can skip this game. There are better titles for serious poker games. I'm not sure if they are on steam, but you can always look around.
Not bad, but still...Furrek | July 4, 2014 | Review of Worms Crazy Gold - PC
I can't say that everyone will have fun playing this game. If you aren't Worms fan then don't even think about this game. It have everything that was crazy in normal worms game, but maked in golf game. Worms Crazy Golf have quite nice set of levels and you can play also with your friends online. Well, but they need to like Worms too. People that might look for some "funny" golf game or just a golf game will be dissapointed. It's fans only warriation of Worms, with few nice features. Customization option and replayability for this game are nice. I played this game for more than 20 hours, so I can say that it was well spent money. I could played it a bit more, but finding someone to play with is really hard. Fans of Worms! Get yourself a copy, or two if you have a Worms maniac friend, and play it. Others might want to stick with original, or just look for other games.
Good platformer.Furrek | July 2, 2014 | Review of Superfrog HD - PC
It's been so many years since original. Playing this game as kid I don't remember it well. I don't have any way to compare it by myself. Still, I do remember some of level desings. Maybe they are not perfect in remake, but still old fans of SUperfrog would recognize some things. For those who don't know what Superfrog is - it's simply and cool platformer, where as Superfrog you collecting coins and other stuff to complete levels. It's not a long game, but still fun to play. Steam version of Superfrog HD have achievements, so if you are into hunting and 100% the game - you will have double fun. It's great thing to see that more old games are getting remakes, or they are at least getting support to be playable on modern machines. We can't let die classic games. Mostly they were the reason we became a gamers, right?
Great co-op game.Furrek | July 1, 2014 | Review of Resident Evil 5 - PC
So this is, if I'm not mistaken, first Resident Evil game that can be played with two players. I haven't played this alone, so I can say how this game is for lone players, but if you have a friend or family member to play with - DO IT. It's amazing - this is kind of games that I want to play with others. Much fun, great action, even more fun on harder difficult setting. There is even MERCENARIES FOR TWO PLAYERS. I think I spent around 250 hours in both - ending the game on every possible difficult setting and trying to be the best in mercenaries. As for the story... well... it have Chris... and... oh yeah, there is a Jill... Wesker trying to destroy the world... I'm happy to see my favorite characters once again but not like that. If you are fan of old RE series then you know what I mean. I can't think of this game as part of Resident Evil series, so let's just say that it's great action game for two players - nothing more.
Endless fun with zombies.Furrek | July 1, 2014 | Review of Left 4 Dead 2 - PC
This is good Left 4 Dead, but now with number 2. It have few improvements that first Left 4 Dead game didn't have. First, and I think the most important thing - steam workshop. There are plenty of maps, characters and other stuff for Left 4 Dead 2. Players are making all the time maps so the fun is unlimited. Second - melee weapons. Now you can cut the heads off zombies with katana, or hit them with frying pan. Third - it have content from first Left 4 Dead game. I still think that owning both Left 4 Dead and Left 4 Dead 2 is not bad idea, but if you don't like to spend money twice for "almost" same thing - almost, because Left 4 Dead 2 have only maps and characters from the first game, then go with that one. There are many people's playing this game online, so if you don't have a friends to play with, I'm sure you will find some.
Operation: Destroy everything.Furrek | July 1, 2014 | Review of Red Faction - PC
The first time I played this game I was amazed. I didn't started normal game or tutorial, but started with glass house. This was the first game I have played that allowed me to destroy environment. So I did tunnel and started the real game. They way you could fight Ultor was amazing. I mean, on begin there is a big vehicle - you can destroy it with bazooka, but this is not only way. It's standing on a rock bridge, so you can destroy what's supporting bridge and make vehicle fall into hole. Also, sometimes you can find very interesting things by not following the main route. Multiplayer was also amazing. You could dig your own tunnels and sit there using a railgun (it's a weapon that show what's behind walls and when fired it went throught everything). It's already old game, but still have active multiplayer scene. Red Faction is the only game that I did speedrun. Well, it only shows how much I liked this game to do something like that. If you are not allergic to old games, play this great title. It's worth everything, there are no games like that nowadays.
Born of a legendary zombie game.Furrek | June 30, 2014 | Review of Left 4 Dead - PC
I have always loved zombies - in books, movies, games. My favorite, and only acceptable kind were slow zombies. Like, you are faster, you can run from them, but still they are dangerous. Left 4 Dead was my first time with "running" zombies. At first I couldn't get into this game - it was just strange. It's strange for zombies to running instead of walking. I think the moment I have played this game online I was in love. It's one of games where teamwork, with real players, is most important and most fun. When you are trying with others to make out from this hell alive. You can still play this game with computer players, but this is not fun at all. So about Left 4 Dead, it have amazing characters. I like them all. Maps, and campaings in whole, are great to play. There are not many of them, but have awesome replayability. You can play them all the time, on different difficult settings. And the hardest one is really hard, even for whole team of experienced players. Fun fact: this game was my reason for making account on steam. Get Left 4 Dead, play it, love it. There is also Left 4 Dead 2, but people are still playing this game. If i'm not mistaken, second game have everything from the first one, so you might check Left 4 Dead 2 before buying this one.
Duke Nukem - the beggining.Furrek | June 28, 2014 | Review of Duke Nukem - PC
When I talked once to my friend he said that he started his adventure with Duke Nukem from the very first game. I was happy to hear that, until he told me that it was similar to Wolfenstein 3D. Whaaat? Platformer Duke Nukem games sure are old, and some people might not know that everything started from this platform game. Is it worth checking, when the most popular Duke Nukem games are 3D and this "Forever" thing? Of course. Simply, it's Duke Nukem. He was awesome from the very beggining. It's also a great platform game from old times. Sure, it looks "old", but the only thing that never get old is fun from playing. And trust me, Duke Nukem is great fun. That's the game when this epic man was born. Treasure it!
Not only for fans of metal.Furrek | June 28, 2014 | Review of Brutal Legend - PC
I'm not a fan of metal music. Sure, sometimes I do listen to it, but it's not like I'm a fan of it. You don't need to be on in order to enjoy this game. Sure, if you are fan of metal you will probably enjoy it more than I did. It have one of greatest soundtracks ever. 108 metal songs. Sounds nice, right? I was so suprised and happy to hear Through the Fire and Flames in this game. That was really awesome. The characters are fun and likeable, the story is enjoyable too. Like some players said before, it could be more polished, but still is a great game. If you are looking for some "music" game that isn't a rhytm game, play it. If you are fan of metal, you probably played it already - if not, do it right now. The only sad thing is that not many gamers heard about this game and some didn't even checked it. Too bad, because games like that makes my life as gamer really fun.
Quite good platformer shooter.Furrek | June 28, 2014 | Review of Bad Bots - PC
I can say it's not a great game. I did completed it once and hunted for all achiements but not sure if I will play it again. There is nothing that you can do once finished game. Sure, there is a challenge mode where you try to score as much points as possible in short time, but there isn't any world ranking. So if you wanna to compare stats with friends or some other players, the best you can do is upload screenshoot and pray if somebody is even checking them. About the game - it's not so long, it's a fun for one time. There are few nice weapons, and killing the robots is also fun. The only thing what I just wanted to be in this game is minimap - I had few moments where I had no idea where I was. It's not a big deal, but some players might have problem with that. If you are fan of retro-styled platformer shooters you can play it, but that's the only group of players I can recommend this game for 100%.
In short: gem.Furrek | June 27, 2014 | Review of Psychonauts - PC
Let me say at first one thing. I haven't played Psychonauts as kid, I haven't played it when it was out in 2005. I did heard about game, but never cared to check what it is. Well, I think I would have much more fun than nowadays, but this game is still simply gem as platformer. It's really well done, challenging and simply fun. It's one of these games with awesome experience while playing. It's not only platformer, but it's mix called puzzle platformer. And puzzles in this one are not easy. Maybe I did get old, but trust me, some of them will really make your brain hard work. The story is great, characters fun to talk to. If I'm not mistaken, it have some little tutorial at beggining, but after you are on your own. Maybe because of how games are made nowadays, I felt sometimes lost on the map. If you are looking for good platformer, some game where you could use some thinking, or simply for some great game from old school - get it and play it. It's a game for long time, you won't finish it in one sitting or one night.
Sequel to a great game.Furrek | June 26, 2014 | Review of Payday 2 - PC
The best thing (at least for now) in Payday 2 is that this game is full of players. As I'm writing this review there are 36,386 steam users playing Payday 2. That's a lot of players, isn't it? You won't have problem finding games and players to play with. Another good thing is that Payday 2 is getting more and more DLCs. Some might say that it's bad thing, but it keep players in the game. Some may get bored after hundreds of hours playing, and people will be happy with new content. It's same fun as Payday 1. I mean, yeah, it's better, have more options and if it will go like that this game will have a playable multiplayer for many years. The only thing that I don't really like are DLC weapons, but well, in today's gaming world it's normal thing, so all we can do is deal with it. Anyway, if you are looking for a great multiplayer experience, grab Payday 2.
Classic gem.Furrek | June 22, 2014 | Review of Jagged Alliance 2 Wildfire - PC
I remember my first time with JA2. Why I don't have and haven't found any ammo for my weapons? Why I don't have any money for mercenaries? Why are the enemies are attacking my sectors all the time? How do I win this game? As a kid, I had no idea how all this things work. Few years later I managed to play this game again and I was suprised. This game have so many options. You don't have unlimited ammo in your weapons - to find it is really rare, so you can order it from special website. You need to earn money by having mines (and something else that I don't remember well), but these sectors will be attacked all the time. In order to keep it, you will need to train civilians, so they could fight the enemies. The map is big, and exploring it all is so much challenge and fun. You will met not only enemies, but also a few NPCs that can be hired. I love the small details in this game - if there is a wardrobe, or a refrigerator staying in kitchen, you can open it and find sometimes something useful. The enemies also are really smart. You will need to have a great tactic to take over some sectors. If you don't care about in which year game came out and about old, but still great looking, graphics and you are looking for some games that you can play for really long time, this is a good choice. Doesn't matter if Wildfire, or original Jagged Alliance 2, both are worth playing.
Not sure what expected, got much fun.Furrek | June 22, 2014 | Review of Mafia II Overflow - PC
I picked it up when there was a rewards on playfire for this game. I'm not sure what I was expected, but got so much fun. I don't remember the first Mafia game very well, but I spent almost 10 hours in this one in one sitting. The story totally sucked me in. Characters in this game are amazing. Atmosphere of 40s and 50s are something great. The almost very begin part of game is set up in winter, and when I was walking around saw a guy that slipped on ice. It's not much, but that left me with big smile on my face. Also, the music. I just love music from these times. Not sure what more there will be for me after finishing this game, but I guess I will go hunt for playboy magazines. It's a nice way to reward collectible hunters with something more than just plain numbers. This game should be played by everyone - it's a good game, worth every price and time spent in. Not sure how DLCs are, since I haven't played them yet, but if they give a bit more to the story then I will be sure to get them.
Cute Mario clone.Furrek | June 22, 2014 | Review of Eryis Action Steam - PC
This game looks like it was inspired by Super Mario. Well, this is truth but not exacly. There was a fan game made which was also inspired by Mario game. I don't remember right now what the title of this was, but you was a cat that was trying to complete stage filled with tons of traps. This is what Eryi's Action is. You will die here many times, replaying stages over and over. What is worth mentioning, that this game have a best trap ever. I won't tell what it is, because it would spoil the fun, but you would never guess where a trap can be placed in this "trapformer". Also, it's cute to watch how Eryi dies. She can be also stripped out of her cloths. Get it if you enjoy platformers, trapformers, or any kind of Mario clones. You won't regret it.
Fun mix.Furrek | June 22, 2014 | Review of The Basement Collection - PC
For low price you are getting a really great and fun to play games. There are 9 games in total, but Meat Boy is probably the most popular. Even as prototype game it's great fun. There is just one thing that destroys this perfection. Optimization. Even on great machines, these games can be slow and laggy. Not everyone is like that, but sadly the best one (in my opinion) Meat Boy have this problem. There won't be realesed any patches for this, not sure why but well. You might be the lucky one and have everything working fine. For a collection there are plenty of things to unlock - if you are interested in Edmund McMillen works, this collection is for you. If you are looking for some nice indie games - you should also check it. Each game is different from another so you won't get bored. Also, like I said, it have original Meat Boy! For this game alone the full price, which is low, The Basement Collection is worth getting.
Forever Early Access Title.Furrek | June 22, 2014 | Review of Gravi Steam - PC
The last time I did played Gravi was in february 2014, but I do remember this game was avaible much earlier on steam. So, few months passed and this game is still as early access game. Even the latest update was in early 2014. I remember this game advertised on few websites and forums, it looked like the guy(s) who made this game really care about this work. Anyway, about the game. It's challenging and annoying in same time. Controls are probably made to be used only in controller, not keyboard. This game is also a bit bugged. And the most annoying probably are random achievements showing when playing. Like, you haven't reached some lvl and achievement for this level just showed up. Since there is no info about any update I guess there wasn't any. It's a shame, since I'm waiting for this game to have everything fixed and then wanna have fun. I know this is how early access works, but waiting half year for some mirror fixes? C'mon... If you are looking for challenging, but still decent in terms of gameplay, platformer, and you don't have a problem with a few bugs that can make it harder to enjoy your game, you should get it.
Nothing special in this genre.Furrek | June 21, 2014 | Review of Cities in Motion 2 - PC
I remember when any kind of simulation and tycoon games used to were very good. Sadly this era ended, and now we have only pack of decent games. Cities in Motion 2 is one of these decent games. What it is? It's a game where you manage a transport network. What's fun about it? The most is map editor - you can build your own city in this game. You can also play with your friends. What's not fun about this game? Multiplayer option is terrible. You will spent more time having troubles with sync than playing. Gameplay could be a bit more interesing. I mean, building your own transport network is fun and all, but this game could be much more expanded, having more options and things to do while you are earning your money. If you are really looking for good simulation/tycoon games, try something older. Buying this game is kind of waste of money. There are also tons of not so cheap DLCs, that gives you almost nothing.
It will end bad.Furrek | June 20, 2014 | Review of Guardians of Middle Earth - PC
Releasing a DOTA/League of Legends clone that need to be paid in order to play, and also with more characters in DLC form, is madness. Even if this is Lord of the Rings MOBA game, it's not worth any price. There is my future vision for this game: free to play + characters in DLC or less and less popularity with shut down. Sadly, Guardiand of Middle Earth can't offer anything new and fresh to MOBA fans. Sure, there are people who love Lord of the Rings (even I do) and some will enjoy this game, but if you have played already LoL or DOTA 2 you won't find much fun in this game. After few matches you will get bored and see that either you are playing with team with only half alive players (the rest will be bots) or you will be seeing same players over and over. Well, maybe this is because I'm new, but it doesn't change the fact that this game is much less popular than 2 biggest players in this genre. I can recommend this game only for really big Lord of the Rings fans or maybe for people who haven't played any MOBA games yet.
Fresh breath in Resident Evil series.Furrek | June 20, 2014 | Review of Resident Evil Revelations Post - PC
In my opinion, this is how the perfect example how next gen Resident Evil game should look like. It's mix of old Resident Evil and new one. I mean, this game have a really good and scary atmosphere. It also does look good. You almost can't tell that it is game from handheld system. The single player is challenging for playing first time and then on higher difficult level, also there is a Raid Mode. In short, you need to move from point A to B and kill every monster on your way. It's not like Mercenaries, but something similar. The way you can customize your weapons in Raid Mode is well done. You can add a scope to your weapon, you can make it to do more damage or make bigger ammo clip. Also, there are some crazy modifications like shooting whole ammo clip in one shoot. Raid mode also have a few difficult levels so it can be played over and over. If you are fan of old/new Resident Evil, or both, you need to play it. This is truly good way to please fans of both types of Resident Evil games.
Killing is fun!Furrek | June 18, 2014 | Review of POSTAL - PC
But of course just in game ;) So my story with Postal game started long time ago. To be honest I haven't played it much back then but I fixed it few days ago. What's so cool about Postal? It's brutal, you can call it blood fest. You are killing innocent people. You can execute them. Blow them up with your grenades, fire them up with your molotov coctails. Not only them, there is also police, and some other people with guns that will try to stop you. I love the graphics in this one - it perfectly fits this kind of game which makes really awesome climate. It's just mindless fun. Back when game was out it was controversial. Now? I don't think anybody would make a big deal of it. If you are looking for simply and bloody fun, get it.
For the fans only?Furrek | June 18, 2014 | Review of The Thirty Nine Steps Steam - PC
I'm not the fan of the book and to be honest, I never heard of it. Same goes about John Buchan. Maybe it's because there is only one book translated to language in my country. So anyway, I just give it a try and played the game. For sure I can say that art is nice - perfect fitting for this kind of story. And about story... it's decent. Maybe I did expect a bit more from a interactive novel / visual novel. There is no way to interact with story, you also have only one ending. I know, it's adaptation of something really old, but games like that nowadays are much more complex. They are longer and offer you much more. Sadly, most time playing, or rather reading this game, I was just bored. I do enjoy this kind of games, but looks like this one didn't fitted in my type.
Heaven for casual gamers.Furrek | June 14, 2014 | Review of Mumbo Jumbo Collection full - PC
This pack is probably the best thing that can happen to casual gamers. Not only there are tons of games, every each are different of other. There is a very good sequel to match-3 game called 7 Wonders, Luxor known by every casual gamer, great Midnight Mysteries hidden object game series and cute Glowfish. But that's not all games. Price for this set if kind of high but you need to remember, you buy 23 games, so if you divide the price for each game it have a good price for each game. Also, be careful! These games are really addictive, so it will probably eat many hours from your life. But still, almost every game from this pack is worth every price and every time spent on. Have fun!
Best NDS game now on PC!Furrek | June 14, 2014 | Review of Scribblenauts Unlimited (1) - PC
I remember when Scribblenauts was out on Nintendo DS. This was something awesome. There was a level where you needed to take cat down from the tree. What could you do? Whatever you want! Using a notepad you could write "axe" to get axe and chop down the tree. You could also spawn a firefighter, so he could take down cat. You could also bring yourself a helicopter and just grab the kitty by yourself. And there are more ways to bring cat down on ground. Now there are much more levels and Scribblenauts Unlimited have much more complex levels. That means you have more objectives to do on single level and there really are unlimited ways to do so. The only thing that can't stop you from doing that is your own imagination. This game also can be played by your children, if you have one. It have cute cartoon design but trust me, no matter if you are adult or looking for game for younger gamer, everyone will have fun playing Scribblenauts Unlimited.
Still great without Dante as main character.Furrek | June 14, 2014 | Review of Devil May Cry 4 Overflow - PC
Before I played this game I've heard that it sucks, because Dante is not the main character in this one. This was my first Devil May Cry and I loved it. Sure, I did played after other Devil May Cry games, but I still think that this is the one that I had most fun. People may not enjoy the story, but it's just a nice addon to the awesome gameplay. As Nero you have plenty of awesome moves that you can use on your enemies. Those are also very effective. Not only game is beatiful but also very satisfactory when making combos with higher notes. It took 50 hours from my life to complete this game on every difficult level, so it sure is long playing time for action game like Devil May Cry. Also, you don't need a controller for this one, you can play it with your keyboard.
Worms in 3D are good, but 2D are much better.Furrek | June 13, 2014 | Review of Worms Ultimate Mayhem - PC
The most thing I like in this one is how they tried to move 2D Worms on next stage. That was a time when 3D games were better and better, so I guess Team 17 tried to make their own game in 3D world. How did it go? In my opinion, not bad. Sure, Worms in 2D are god-like, and it's hard to beat something so great. Sadly, Worms in 3D didn't managed to do that, just look at new Worms games - all of them are 2D. So about Worms Ultimate Mayhem, it's a nice experience. You have much more freedom, exploring worms arenas are fun in 3D, using your favorite weapons from past games are also so much fun. Destroying the map, making your own maps or castles, are nice to spent time in. Playing with friends is also enjoyable, if you are playing for pure fun. I can't imagine playing this in serious matches, but that's my opinion. If you are curious how Worms would work in 3D, there is your answer. It's not a bad game, and it sure is kind of different from other Worms games.
Great as game, fail in RE series.Furrek | June 12, 2014 | Review of Resident Evil 4 Biohazard 4 - PC
I'm a huge Resident Evil fan and I'm sad when I look at this game as part of Resident Evil. It became more like action game than a horror one. This game is not scary at all. There is one moment (I won't tell you which one) that is kinda scary, but that's all. Also, where the heck are zombies? It's truly bad how this became a standard, but that's all for annoying fan talks. As a gamer I did enjoyed this game. Fighting your enemies in Resident Evil 4 is so much fun. There are few difficult levels so if you are looking for a challenge, you will find it here. Mercenaries - the best thing that happened to RE series. In short - you have some time to kill the waves of enemies, trying to get as much points as you can, beating the scores of players in whole world. I spent in this mode twice as much time as you need to clear the games on every difficult level and trust me, it's not really a short game. If you are fan of RE series, just try to play it as different game. If you are just looking for good game - congrats, you have found it! It's now in HD, so if you did played it before you must know, that everything that was annoying, got repaired.
Puzzle platformer.Furrek | June 10, 2014 | Review of Sugar Cube Bittersweet Factory Steam - PC
So it's not just a platform game. It's more like a puzzle game with platform elements. You are playing as cute sugar cube and you're trying to beat all of 90 levels, placed in different themed worlds. As sugar cube you have the power to flip tiles, and it will come handy in almost every level but also make your playing much harder. Sadly, it's still easy and short game. I managed to beat this game and get two endings in 2 hours. In my opinion, it's still worth to play this game. There are also achievements that will make you to play as best as you can - there are achievements for not dying in each world, which is quite difficult to do. If you like platform games, and maybe puzzle platformers, than you must try this game.
Simply fun.Furrek | June 8, 2014 | Review of Post Apocalyptic - PC
I don't remember when was the last time I played simply racing game - where you just pick one of the cars, pick the map and just race, trying to be first or trying to make your enemies fail. It's that kind of game. Every vehicle have it's own special attacks that you can use on others. There are few maps that are different themed. There is a nice, snow one, that greatly fits on christmas! There is also multiplayer mode, so there is 6 times more fun - you can play up to 6 players in total. The only thing I think this game is missing is local coop (split screen). It could be a nice things, old racing simply for fun games had this options. Graphics and music from this one aren't anything special but well, those aren't the most fun things in game like that. If you are looking for something simply, even to play few minutes a day, this game is for you.
Game only for one time.Furrek | June 8, 2014 | Review of XBlades - PC
You can call it poor man's Devil May Cry. Still, it's not bad hack and slash game, with beautiful Ayumi. You are traveling from place to place and kill all enemies in those places. If I remember, there was a count how many monsters are left, also they are showed on minimap. Sadly, when you learn about game mechanics this game will not be hard to beat. Even on harder difficult levels, it's still too easy. For the story, I didn't enjoyed it and I just played this game as h&s with good looking girl. Don't let yourself be fooled, the alternate ending is just a simply one scene at the end. Not worth effort playing the whole game again. Like my title for this review said, it's a game only for one time. Once you beat it, there will be nothing to do - there are not many things to do except following "story". Decide for yourself, if you are looking for decent game to play once and leave it, or maybe something other. You can check it only if you are a hard fan of DMC-like games.
Another nice mix of Tower Defense and other genres!Furrek | June 8, 2014 | Review of SangFroid Tales of Werewolves - PC
At begin I need to say if you have played Sanctum 2, Orc Must Die or Dungeon Defenders, and if you enjoyed at least one of those games, you must play Sang-Froid - Tales of Werewolves. Those games are really similar, just have different settings. So about Sang-Froid, mostly your enemies will be, you can guess it, werewolves. I don't want to spoil anything for new players, so let's leave it this way. And you are trying to protect your house and few more building from those creatures. To do that, you can simply fight them head to head, or place traps. There are plenty of ways to kill your enemies or just fool them. For example, you can place a bait food for them, but there is also a special skill for poisoning food. So while they will be eating bait, not only they will stop trying to attack your buildings, but also it will kill them. There are much more creative ways to kill your enemies, it depend only on your imagination. Sadly, game is not so long, but there are two difficult levels. If you are fan of those TD mixes games, get it. If not, well, check the trailer on website. I never heard before about this game and this trailer (especially music!) made me buy this game. I don't regret it.
U mad?Furrek | June 7, 2014 | Review of Super Meat Boy - PC
Did you ever played a game where you needed to restart/play it again because it was hard? Did you ever tried to achieve 100% in game and know how long, and sometimes hard, it is? Forget it. In Super Meat Boy you will try to beat again and again normal levels, and when you will set yourself a goal of beating it in 100%... good luck. This game makes everyone anger, but somehow it's also fun. There are tons of levels, even more fan made, and this game will make anger your best friend. The numbers of my deaths in this game was far more than 5000. And I still didn't completed it. Do you love platform games? Try it. Do you want a challenge? Try it. It's one of most hardest games that was out to this day. I don't count old games, but srsly, nowaday games are almost too easy to play. If you are bored with that, Super Meat Boy is for you.
Word from a new player.Furrek | June 6, 2014 | Review of Super Street Fighter 4 Arcade Edition - PC
So I just recently started playing Super Street Fighter 4 Arcade Edition. There are plenty of characters with multiple styles of play. It's just hard to decide which one to play or master, after few hours I managed to play at least once with all them. There is a special training mode so you can learn how to do combos, but still, most fun thing is of course playing matches online with other players. In 50 matches I managed to win 2 of them, so it's not much but still, every one of them was fun and I learned a bit. To be honest, like every new player (unless you spent hours in training mode) will be "trashed" by regular players, but that's normal thing in fighting games. I do prefer 2D fighting games but SSF4 Arcade Edition showed me that 3D fighting games are not bad. There are also many thing you can unlock while playing - new colors of costumes, titles etc. Also, Games From Windows Life was deleted from this title, that means it's now a full steamworks title - you don't need to log-in to play online, there are also achievements.
Must play for every RPG games fan.Furrek | May 25, 2014 | Review of Gothic Complete Collection - PC
I still remember the day that Gothic 1 was out. Before I bought it, I tried demo version and oh my god... it was my first time playing 3D open world RPG game. It was amazing experience. I rushed to shop and bought full version. I have spent so many times, beating this game on every possible setting. This is how my love for this series started. Gothic 2 is much bigger and better, but still doesn't have atmosphere that the first game had. Sadly, 3rd game and expansion are worse, but still playable. If you was never fan of Morrowind game then you will probably love Gothic. If you love open world games you will probably love Gothic. If you enjoy good RPG games you will probably love Gothic. It's nothing like today's RPG games, but that doesn't mean old games are worse. If anything, they are much better. Every Gothic games have so much to find, secret places, interesing story, great characters and big, open world that will make you visit every possible place. It's truly gem that is worth every price.
Pretty good Bust-a-Move clone.Furrek | May 25, 2014 | Review of Worms Blast - PC
So in my opinion it's the best spin-off from main Worms series. It's similar game to Bust-a-Move but much more expanded. Bust-a-Move (know also as Puzzle Bobble) was really simple game - you just had to remove all bubbles at top, while having few moves or rushing to destroy it before it will reach you. Worms Blast is same. It's also in my opinion a bit harder. Every weapon in this game have it's own trajectory, every time you miss the water level is rising and making it hard to avoid falling pieces. You also have health bar, when it will drop to 0 you will just "die". It's not only make game harder but also much more fun. You can "store" better weapons and use it when in trouble with blocks. There are also few playable characters - you don't need to play as a worm, but also as sheep or old explosive woman. It have plenty of missions and stuff like local multiplayer, so you can fight against your friends/family on shared screen. I can recommend this game to Worms and puzzle games fans. It's not like any other Worms game, but it's worth your time.
Worst Worms spin-off.Furrek | May 21, 2014 | Review of Worms Pinball - PC
It's not your typical Worms game. Instead of another multiplayer fun we have here pinball. Yup, that's right, pinball game. It's really old game, and maybe somebody remember that there were sometimes really weird things coming out under popular games or licenses. This is the one of those weird things. If you are diehard fan of Worms, that may be a cool game for you. I can't recommend this for pinball fans. It have only one table. One table, even Worms themed, is not worth paying this much. Also It's old game and sadly it's not working well with modern PCs. It have really small resolution, can't be played in window mode. Some people may have problems playing it on Windows 8. There are better Worms games, and better pinballs games. It's really not worth your money.
Best local multiplayer game ever.Furrek | May 21, 2014 | Review of Worms Armageddon - PC
This game is the best Worms game ever. The only one that can compare is Worms World Party, but sadly it's not avaible anywhere. I remember when I was a kid I played it everyday. Spent many days after school with friends playing this game. Before we started playing, we were making a special rules. Like, we can only use granades, or sheeps. This was so fun. We were also making our maps, some was totally unplayable, some required skill at throwing granades or planning to be sneaky. And when it was getting dark outside and friends were going home, I was always jumping online. There was always someone to play with and have fun. I really miss those times. Anyway, it's many years later and guess what? Worms Armageddon still have active multiplayer community. Team 17 is also taking care of this old gem - imagine a patch after so many years! Usually Devs stop caring about their games after 1-2 years. It only shows how great guys at Team 17 are. So, wanna know something about the game? It's just best game ever - best Worms game, best local and online multiplayer. It's one of those games that are must play for every gamer. It's worth every price.
Great way to start adventure with rogue-like games.Furrek | May 21, 2014 | Review of The Binding of Isaac - PC
The Binding of Isaac was my first rogue-like game that I ever played. If I ever played something earlier, I didn't probably knew about this genre. So what's with that rogue-like game? Every time you start new game, you are getting something new. I mean, you won't play on the same map, you won't get same items, the enemies will change. Every new game is really new and how you will do in later rooms and floors depend only on your luck and SKILL. If you are lucky, you will get items that will help you win the game without any problems. But mostly you won't get that luck and there where SKILL come. Every enemy need a way to be killed, same with boss fights. It's not very complicated, but you will spend really much time trying to figure things out, what items give and take from you, how to play to win the game. The game have multiple ending, characters, tons of items and unlimited hours of fun. For this price you won't find a game that is more addicting and giving so much fun. This is easily one of the best indie games.
Sanctum's little brother.Furrek | May 19, 2014 | Review of Super Sanctum TD - PC
Ever played Sanctum or Sanctum 2? It's the same, but just a normal Tower Defense game. Instead of having active player there are spells - from bonus money, to bombs and skills that will stop the time. What really, in my opinion, makes this game good is difficult level. Some levels are really hard to beat, and it's hard to find a best combination of towers to kill the waves of monster easy. Graphics are also nice looking, kind of retro but polished. Like in any other TD games, there are few modes (hard, unlimited) which make this game playable for much more time after beating it. You also can earn piece of medals for beating game on hard mode, or not letting any monsters hit your core. Not sure if I can recommend it for everyone, but if you are Tower Defense games fan you must play it.
Amazing FPS + Tower Defense combination.Furrek | May 19, 2014 | Review of Sanctum 2 - PC
Before I tried this game I thought making a FPS and TD mix game is stupid. How wrong I was... For beginning, it's really a great TD game. I enjoy this genre so much that I probably played every Tower Defense game. First time playing Sanctum 2 feels like just a good TD game. And then, you are also part of this game. Not just as a mouse cursor who place towers on map. You are a character that also fight with next waves of monsters. This makes this game really fresh. Just adding you, a player, as active character to defense the core. It's so simple, but makes this game awesome. Simply the best, right? There are plenty of maps, unlimited waves mode, few characters to choose to play as and SECRETS. Also multiplayer mode to play with friends. In my opinion it's one of the best TD games I ever played and trust me, I played plenty of them.
The only 2D MOBA game that is worth playing.Furrek | May 19, 2014 | Review of Awesomenauts - PC
There are two big MOBA games, that everyone played, or at least heard about them. It's DOTA 2 and League od Legends. In my opinion, those two games are best in this genre. But this game is best MOBA in 2D. To be honest never heard of any other, but well... nevermind. It's really enjoyable title. There is no such a thing like "pressure". Almost every player play this game to simply have fun. Sure, there is a ranking with best players etc. but it's not so stressful like in LoL or DOTA. I find this game to be a nice break from big MOBA games. It's really nice platformer 2D MOBA game.
One of the best games that was out in 2012Furrek | May 19, 2014 | Review of Batman Arkham City Game of the Year Overflow 1 - PC
Let me say first that I'm not even a Batman fan and you too don't need to be one to enjoy this game. Sure, I think fans of Batman will have even more fun, but this game is still great fun for no fans of this superhero. I did spent almost 18 hours in this game following main story and some side quests. In every minute I had good time exploring city, fighting bad characters, finding some collectibles and unlocking new fight moves, new information about characters in this game and new things that are unlocking after you beat the game. After that time I did managed just to complete game, once. And there is much more for me, like beating game on harder difficult level, finding everything in this game that I can, beating challenges. In my opinion, it will take more than 50-60 hours to do everything. Now tell me how many singleplayer games offer you this much for this price? It is an amazing game and worth every price. It sure is one of greatest games that was out in 2012. It have great fighting system, great graphics, great music and story that sure is enjoying. This is exactly what I expect from AAA games. My final score is 95/100, you can't miss it.
Simple and "empty" game.Furrek | May 18, 2014 | Review of Gun Monkeys - PC
Sadly, I can recommend this game only for people with friends - online, or real, no matter. The reason is simple - this game is kinda empty. You will probably have hard time finding a new player or someone to play and have fun together longer than few matches. I played it on the same day when it was out on steam - it wasn't so bad experience, but that was when everybody was starting. Another big mistake is that you can't play with bots. That's why you will need friends if you want to enjoy, or even play, this game. As for the game - it's just simple deathmatch game. Nothing less, and nothing more.
Fun RPG game.Furrek | May 15, 2014 | Review of Avencast Rise of the Mage Steam - PC
This is my review for this game on Steam: http://steamcommunity.com/id/furrek/recommended/46410/ + It's FUN to use magic. You combine a keyboard with mouse to spell cast. And if you don't want to have fun, you can add spells to action bar. + It's FUN to explore - there is plenty of stuff to be find! + It's does feel like you are playing RPG game +/- Camera - some people find it annoying and buggy, but i haven't got any issues with it. If you will manage to learn how to set it, you won't need any mods. +/- Graphics - it's game from 2007, and it does look great for it's time. No need to compare it to other games, every game have own unique style. - Metascore - if you want to know if game is worth your time, then read user reviews, not critic ones. They are much more useful. It's always better to read about a game from other gamers than an incompetent magazine reviewer, isn't it? 68/100 isn't a bad score, but nowadays only the highest, like 80-85+ are counting as good game while other not. Sad but true. I'd recommend for sure this game to RPG fans, other people may check demo version (if avaible) or hunt for it on sales.
Shmup only for fans.Furrek | May 15, 2014 | Review of eXceed Gun Bullet Children - PC
This is my review for this game on Steam platform: http://steamcommunity.com/id/furrek/recommended/207370/ Ever played Touhou? Or some kind of shmup games? This one is called "bullet hell" and is hard to play, even on easy settings. The 2nd and 3rd eXceed game of course would be a better choice, but since the complete pack is cheaper and include the 1st eXceed game, why not pay less and get also this one? In my opinion, this one is not bad - except you need to do extra work to make it play in window mode (check the forums), and if you want to know what the girls are talking about you need to install translation (which also can be found on forums). If you pay no attention to this two things, this can be enjoyable without doing anything. If you are into this genre then you can't miss this one.
A quite nice "sim" game.Furrek | May 15, 2014 | Review of Cherry Tree High comedy Club - PC
There were very popular online flash games called "sim" game. Ever played one? Most of these games main objective was to get girl naked, but well, this one sadly isn't about it... Anyway, in this kind of games you were able to do few things daily, had some money/points etc. to spent, and did it over and over and over. You know what? Cherry Tree High Comedy Club kinda remind me of "sim" games. Sadly, it's not for everyone. You will probably need to be fan of this genre, or be into japanese animation. If you are into one of these things, you will not regret getting this game.
Great multiplayer survival game!Furrek | May 15, 2014 | Review of Killing Floor - PC
This is a review that I made for this game on Steam: http://steamcommunity.com/id/furrek/recommended/1250/ One of the greatest multiplayer survival game I have played. The things I like in this game: - maps! There are plenty of different maps in game, even more fan-made. Never played fan-made ones because I still have much fun on officials. Every map have pros and cons, what I really love to do is finding the best place to defend yourself. This way, in 2 player team, we managed to beat all maps on the suicidal difficulty, which is really hard to do in small squad. - perks! The best thing in multiplayer games is making your character the way it fits you game style. Do you love to play as medic? No problem! There is perk that will allow you to buy medic guns cheaper and you will be able to heal other players. You love handguns? Or maybe you want to slice some head using katana? There you go! There are 6 perks in total, so i'm sure every player will find the one for self. - atmosphere in game! It sure is dark, sometimes scary, music fits great. You will find yourself many times troubled seeing how many monsters there are left and how low are you on health or ammo, running away or fighting to the last drop of blood. I was always more fan of survival horrors that are not focused on fast paced action. If you are also one, you should really check Killing Floor out - the game is not expensive, you don't need to pay attention to the DLCs: all of them are just additional characters or some weapons but trust me, you don't really need them to enjoy game to the fullest.
