Who thought this was a good idea?

MadMonkey119 | April 9, 2011 | Review of Kane and Lynch 2: Dog Days

Honestly, I was pretty amped to play this game once it finished downloading. It looked like a linear, grittier GTA. Boy was I wrong. It started off fun then just got over the top. You end up jumping through buildings slaughtering hundreds of gangstars/cops. The cover system is flimsy at best. Often not attaching to the right spot or at all. The graphics are nice but thats about it. You may find yourself queasy as well because someone thought a rocking camera supposedly shot by a drunken man with one leg and one arm was a good idea. Overall you will get bored quick with a repetitive single player and a empty multiplayer.

Creativity is not always good

MadMonkey119 | April 9, 2011 | Review of Reign: Conflict of Nations DNS

This game tries to create a new and unique experience so hard that it ultimately becomes something difficult to understand and play. This game will focus on the area of Russia divided into provinces where 26 factions fight for supremacy. So you choose a point on the map as to where you start and this will determine your commander/ruler and units unique to that province/territory. However the world map although looks nice, can hinder game play. It has ever flowing and annoying clouds! If you zoom in to get past the clouds you don't see enough of the map. Graphics tend to be composed of sprites which at times looks dated but also detailed. Also, I find the AI to be completely and utterly silly. At times they work, but usually they will do the opposite of the logical move. Truthfully units aren't too unique as well. They will look similar and have one or two slightly changed stats. Overall the game lacks enjoyment personally with repetitive missions and a only alright UI.
