Much better than reviewers seem to think

LauridsA | June 25, 2013 | Review of Mafia II

Just finished the game after buying it on an edge since so many reviews on different websites seem to put this game down but I think the story and the setting of the game are absolutely phenomenal. Most reviews critisize the game for the open world being dead with nothing happening, and I do agree that there is a lack of stuff to do, if you don't do the collectibles but I don't really mind, since that's not what the game is really focused around. The game is focused around the story and the characters, and while I agree the characters are rather flat as many reviews are saying I believe this is intentional since the game seems to be more of a commentary on the Mafia life rather than, say, being about the characters per se. All in all, a great game, definitely worth playing.

Not as good as I expected

LauridsA | June 20, 2013 | Review of Don't Starve

I read reviews and everyone seems to absolutely love this game, however I myself did not really find it all that appealing. I have managed to play for about an hour total and it just doesn't manage to "capture" me. I used to play Terraria a lot so I was expecting to love it, but sadly it felt a bit out of my taste. That being said it still seems like a really well made game for what it is, just don't expect something easy, the game is quite hard and maybe that was just the part that put me off. Overall, a good game if you're into having a challenge out of surviving.

Addictive sim, appealing to non-sim fans

LauridsA | June 20, 2013 | Review of Euro Truck Simulator 2

I have never been really into sims and didn't figure I would with ETS2 but I downloaded the demo from steam and was instantly hooked and bought it on sale, but it would have been well worth my money even without discount. I have put about 45 hours into the game and that is quite in the low end compared to what some people have. The game is quite immersive and is a good way to relax at night and unwind. Just you, your truck and the open road all around Europe and the devs are working to update the game and provide good dlc for reasonable prices so this game is definitely worth buying.

Such a good stealth game

LauridsA | June 20, 2013 | Review of Dishonored

Dishonored is one of my favourite games. I have yet to play the DLC but the main game was definitely worth my money, and especially at this reduced price. It's a great mix of stealth and action where both lethal and non-lethal methods are quite fun and the entire game is really entertaining. A great buy for any action/stealth game fan.
