Classic stealthJABxxx | July 27, 2014 | Review of Thief: Deadly Shadows
Not as classic as it predecessors but better than both in my opinion and especially better than its reboot titled Thief that came out recently. Deadly Shadow's voice acting and sound design is top notch especially for a game of this age. With out spoiling too much it has a specific level that puts this great sound design to use in a pretty creepy way. Id consider it to be one of the best levels in a video game. The game has a great atmosphere that is sometimes hurt by bad load times and weird physics and texture loading. Makes it pretty apparent the game was made for console but it personally is a minor complaint as so much in this game is done great. Does it have the same freedom as the Thief games before it? No but that would be silly to expect as its built on a new engine that is far more demanding and was relatively advanced graphically for its time. I say buy.
I love itJABxxx | May 3, 2014 | Review of Titanfall (NA)
I havent enjoyed a first person shooter this much since Call of duty 4. Its important to point out though the game is online only so if your online connection isnt very good I wouldnt recommend getting it because you will be at an extreme disadvantage. Double jumping with your jetpack, parkour and the mechs make this game stand out from call of duty. Although if you've played call of duty recently you'll feel right at home here which will decrease the learning curve a bit but also gives you a bunch of new utilities and abilities to use to diversify the play style from Call of duty.
Still holds up today :)JABxxx | Aug. 9, 2013 | Review of Max Payne
I only recently played Max Payne after beating Max Payne 3. Expecting to walk into a game that would be far to dated to enjoy, I can honestly say I was surprised to find an excellent Noir story told through gameplay and Graphic novel cut scenes. The shooting is excellent and the bullet time just adds an element of cool that more shooters have tried to duplicate and succeed in some respects but not expertly capture the same feel. The story is depressing and I would rather not spoil anything for anyone who wishes to play this. Simply put, I love this game. My only gripe is that it takes a little to get it running on Windows 7 but no major problems.
