Very good game depicting gangs before, much better than the first game, great story, gameplay and ambience. Definitely a game that you can not miss. In addition to the DLCs

Very cheap and good!

Geenaro | May 27, 2012 | Review of Sanctum

Indie game, very good to play with friends and spend a little time, and very cheap and has many DLCs to enjoy a good game no doubt.

Excellent Trilogy

Geenaro | May 27, 2012 | Review of Alien Breed Trilogy

Excellent Trilogy! Very good games to pass the time, very addictive. That does not include many hours of play but it's worth it.

Not bad

Geenaro | May 27, 2012 | Review of Kane and Lynch 2: Dog Days

Enjoyable but not a brilliant game. the antagonists are as insane as they were in the first game but the "documentary" style camera can be rather disorienting during long play sessions. i had to quit a couple times due to nausea but still enjoyed the game. only managed one playthrough though which is a bad thing in my book. i prefer a game that can keep me coming back....

The multiplayer on the other hand, has some refreshing ideas, but the execution is ugly and messy. Lag is a large issue, not to mention at launch, it did not even have a way that let's you mute someone who has their microphone constantly on with grating noises coming from it.

I would not recommend getting this game for any more than $5, if at all, as the content just does not last long enough for paying any more than $5 to be justifiable.

Best Sandbox!

Geenaro | May 27, 2012 | Review of Just Cause 2

The gameplay is fun and addictive with a plethora of weapons and more can be added by getting the DLCs which are not that expensive. The grappling hook is a really unique feature that adds a whole level of verticality to the game. You can scale buildings, quickly move around, bind two objects together and do with them as you wish ,or simply pull objects or enemies towards you.

It's just a shame that the game's storyline and voice acting are both jarringly sub-par, because Just Cause 2 really is a spectacularly beautiful and dynamic package. If you've got the hardware to unleash its full power, the game will dazzle you with its jaw-dropping visuals and luscious environments. Despite being over a year old, its graphics still stand up as some of the finest on any platform, offering a tantalising insight into what might be possible in the next few years.

Play it!

Geenaro | May 27, 2012 | Review of Super Meat Boy

It's the control that makes this game. The graphics are simple fun, the gameplay fairly standard platformer - a combination of timing of movement/jumping with puzzles. But the difference between a good version of this sort of game and a bad is how accurately the characters on-screen response reflects what you've done, or feel you've done, with keyboard/controller. This game is expert at its implementation of controls.

Controls are very simple. You can run, walljump, holding jump longer gives you higher jumps, and you can sprint. That's it. The thing that makes the controls so genius however is how tight they feel. You instantly feel completely in control of Meat Boy, and as you play more you eventually learn how to dodge things extremely well. Once you have beaten the game you can easily impress people who are new to the game by playing the first parts of the game over again. This is using a gamepad however, and I have not dared to try to play it on a keyboard. This is mostly because I started playing this on the 360, and those are the controls I am familiar with.

There are many levels in this game and almost all of them require multiple play throughs to get through because you have to be really really precise in your moves and a graded timing to meet.

All in all, a fun game

Geenaro | May 27, 2012 | Review of Magicka

Considering that the price is about 10 € Magicka is definitely a game that can give great satisfaction to the lovers of this genre as long as you can get over some graphical imperfections and the somewhat badly balanced difficulty levels wich could turn off certain players from playing.

It all started with a small article about Magicka. The article explained a few quirks that could happen within the world of magic. For those who don't know, the gameplay in Magicka consists of combining elements together into spells and using those spells against hordes of enemies thrown at you. There's alot that can go wrong with these spells and hilarity ensues. Try bombing the enemy, only to hit your friends, resurrecting them, then being hit by your friend's thunderbolt as an act of revenge. The amount of combinations you can make is vast and makes for a very original game. There's many ways to dispose of your enemies and it with the challenge mode and co-op that are in this game you will have countless of hours of fun. A few downsides: The game still has a tendency to bork up and you might experience a few glitches here and there, but it's mostly a case of YMMV.

Though the fun powers-down a little in single player, the element-based casting in which you choose multiple elements and cast in the form of beams, sprays and bolts is still incredibly fun and exciting to experiment with!

All in all, a fun game - but bring your friends!

this is awesome dude

Geenaro | May 27, 2012 | Review of Mafia II dns

Very good game but very short also that the map does not develop other missions, finally, the end remains open for a Mafia III

I have this game with all DLCs.
