This game is greatJokin93 | Jan. 20, 2014 | Review of Just Cause 2
I bought this one because of a sale and I didn't have very high expectations, another GTA wannabe, I said. But luckily I was wrong.
Despite being 4 years old, this game still has good graphics and the story is amazing. The world is brilliantly designed and there are so many things that you can do that this game has huge replay value.
I had a blast playing it and you know what's even better?! They released a multiplayer mod for it, and it's FREE! The multiplayer is not yet bug-free, but it's still an amazing experience with tons of options and enjoyable chaos.
This game is well worth the money and I would definitely recommend it to those who enjoy GTA games.
Must-have DLCJokin93 | Jan. 18, 2014 | Review of Borderlands 2: Tiny Tina’s Assault on Dragon Keep
If you asked me what DLC you should buy for Borderlands 2, I would probably tell you to get all of it, but since money can be a problem and choices need to be made, then I would definitely go with Tiny Tina’s Assault on Dragon Keep.
This is more than just a piece of DLC, this is pretty much an expansion, considering how much content it adds to the game. I could say more, but you would have to see for yourself as this DLC is a must-have.
The first was great, this one is betterJokin93 | Jan. 18, 2014 | Review of Borderlands 2 (NA)
I personally loved the first Borderlands and played it for many hours both with friends and alone, but this one is so much better.
Right now this is my favorite game on Steam and I must say that playing it with friends makes is even greater than playing alone. This game is in my honest opinion the only good casual shooter out there, it's also the only one where I don't get angry when I get killed. And looting makes everything worth it.
Borderlands 2, despite being over a year old, is still one of the greatest gaming experiences on the market.
A legendary franchise and an extraordinary gameJokin93 | Jan. 18, 2014 | Review of Sid Meier's Civilization® V
I got this game as part of a promotion a while back and due to not having enough time, I had to postpone playing it until recently.
I personally have always preferred real-time strategy games over their turn-based counterparts and I still do to a certain extent, but I must say that this game is a blast. Not only is it enjoyable, but what makes it great and well worth the price is its great replay value that makes it a long time investment.
Thus being said, I already have approximately 30 hours played and I am considering buying DLC for it. This is a must-have for all the strategy fans.
Plain funJokin93 | Dec. 29, 2013 | Review of Safecracker
Safecracker, or as it is dubbed The Ultimate Puzzle Adventure, is not among the best games of this generation, at no point did it even intend to be like that, instead, it is one great and challenging puzzle game that can be a great time-killer. And there is another element that this game has and makes it even more amazing: it is unaffected by time, no matter how old this game has become, it still provides the same amount of fun.
For the ridiculously low price tag that it comes with, this game will keep you entertained for hours and will be more than worth the investment.
Worth itJokin93 | Dec. 29, 2013 | Review of Doom 3
The Doom franchise is very well known for its essential role in the history and evolution of the FPS genre.
Well, DOOM 3, despite being considered by many to be the weakest link in the franchise, is a great game(although a bit old), and it does its predecessors proud, by keeping on the right track.
It might be true that it is quite short and it doesn't bring many improvements over DOOM 2, but it is nevertheless and great classic shooter that should be present in any gamer's library.
A good strategy gameJokin93 | Dec. 29, 2013 | Review of King Arthur II
King Arthur II, as you may figure from it title, is the direct sequel to the 2009 gem: King Arthur: The Role-playing Wargame and it does its job right.
The RTS strategy platform is well polished and the RPG and TBS elements are properly integrated, creating a very fluid gameplay overall. The UI has also improved since the last game(although it will still take a while to get used to) and the graphics are perfectly fine for a strategy game.
Of course, King Arthur II isn't as well polished and homogeneous as the games in the TOTAL War franchise, but it succeeds in what it promises and comes at a price, so ridiculously low that you can't be disappointed.
More content. More fun.Jokin93 | Dec. 14, 2013 | Review of Sonic and All-Stars Racing Transformed: Metal Sonic Pack
I bought this DLC pack during a big sale and I honestly wasn't expecting much since most of the time DLC brings so little to the main game that you could as well not get it, but that was not applicable for this one.
Metal Sonic is a great addition to the game, he's a new character, with a unique set of features that don't make him overpowered and dumb down the game, they only make him really fun to play or compete against. Furthermore this pack also adds a great new track that certainly improves the replay value of the game and since the developers didn't forget about us, Steam users, emoticons are included.
For its extremely low price(even when not on sale) and great quality, this DLC pack is a must have for any owner of the base game.
One of a kindJokin93 | Dec. 14, 2013 | Review of Sonic and All-Stars Racing Transformed
I am not a huge fan of racing games, but the Sonic franchise will always have a special place in my gamer heart.
Despite the disappointment brought by its predecessor(Sonic and Sega All-star Racing) this game is wonderful and offered me hours of fun. It's not just a racing game, it is a brilliant fun-packed arcade racing game that could compete with Mario Kart anytime and the only alternative for PC gamers.
The graphics are great(yes, they are cartoonish, but that's what Sonic is), the gameplay is fantastic and the multiplayer is spectacular and it represents the best way the game can be played.
All in all, this game is on my list of top games of 2013 and it is a worthy addition to any gamer's library.
Rockstar doesn't disappointJokin93 | Dec. 3, 2013 | Review of Max Payne 3
I personally bought a product called Max Payne 3: Complete Pack back in October. It included both the game and the Rockstar Pass DLC pack, but since the said product doesn't seem to be available in the store anymore, I will be reviewing each part of the pack separately.
Max Payne 3 is an excellent addition to the franchise and one of the best games of 2012. Yes, it is a shooter, like many others, but at the same time it is not "just another shooter", it's a unique game with a spectacular gameplay(many aspects which cannot be found in any other shooter are well-implemented in Max Payne 3), amazing graphics and a great story.
Now that I am done listing the great aspects of the game I will present its biggest flaws, I call them "the interrupters". One one hand, there are the long cutscenes that make the overall experience less immersive and furthermore, the game tends to take control of your character and do things that you might not have intended to do, such as opening a door before you found all the collectibles.
Overall, the game is a great addition to the franchise and a great shooter.
Great bundle, awesome franchiseJokin93 | Dec. 3, 2013 | Review of Max Payne Complete Bundle
I bought this bundle during a sale back in October and having not played any of the Max Payne games before, I did not know what to expect so I just went with the flow while also being guided by the name of the developer.
I must say that I was impressed, the story of Max Payne is great and the gameplay is exceptional. The first two games are already classics and regarding the third, take negative reviews with a grain of salt.
Max Payne 3 is different than its predecessors in many ways, but at the same time it is an innovations, a great game and the multiplayer is good and enjoyable.
Overall, I recommend this bundle to all the shooter fans out there, it's a great franchise, with a great story and an awesome gameplay.
Great game that needs more fameJokin93 | Dec. 3, 2013 | Review of Overlord Complete Pack
I bought the Overlord Complete Pack for a very low, discounted price back in October and I must say that this is a great franchise.
Despite the fact that the game is quite old, it is very enjoyable and the graphics are fine, the story is nice and this game has an unique aspect to it: You are the bad guy, you are no hero, you are the Overlord, you rule! This aspects come forward as a nice combination between strategy and classic RPG combat.
All in all, this is a great bundle, for a great price and it's worth every penny.
Good shooterJokin93 | Dec. 3, 2013 | Review of F.E.A.R. 3
I got my copy of this game back in October, when there was a big discount and I must say that it was worth every penny, it's nothing spectacular or very innovative and it's not as good as its predecessors, the multiplayer is quite lacking, but it's a very good game overall, especially if you are a fan of single player FPS.
The horror element from the previous installment has diminished, but it is still present.
All in all, this is a game that I would recommend for all FPS enthusiasts.
Surprisingly enjoyable and very affordableJokin93 | Dec. 3, 2013 | Review of Dead Pixels
I got this game for free with the purchase of another and I must say that had it not been for that promotion I wouldn't have purchased it and I would have missed a ton of fun.
On one hand, this game looks like one that you would play in the 80s and its name isn't trying to hide that in any way, it's the pixels that make the game unique and enjoyable after all.
On the other hand, this game manages to surprise by adding the use of the mouse and combining it perfectly with the pixelated zombie survival 2D gameplay. Other great additions include upgrades, an inventory and the possibility of entering houses, for the rest you will have to see for yourself and considering the price, you won't regret it.
