A buggy, yet fulfilling Batman simulatorMoizMansoorV | Oct. 27, 2013 | Review of Batman Arkham Origins
Aside from the small performance problems, and the massive game-breaking Burnley tower bug, the game is pretty polished (thanks to the great base laid by Rocksteady, no doubt!) and fun to play. The shock gloves are a great addition to the combat, but it seems the combat's been made artificially harder by slowing down Batman's response time.
In any case, Arkham Origins is still a pretty good Batman game, just not a "worthy" counterpart to the likes of Arkham City and Arkham Asylum.
Fun game, made better by co-opMoizMansoorV | Aug. 12, 2013 | Review of Resident Evil 5
RE5 is a very fun Resident Evil game that feels like a natural progression of RE4 in terms of quality of story and gameplay. Fun, violent and a good engine that allows for fine-tuning graphics options make this a great buy.
The fantastic co-op is just the icing on the cake.
A unique experienceMoizMansoorV | Aug. 12, 2013 | Review of LA Noire
LA Noire is best described as a detective simulator. Very different from your cookie-cutter "let's zoom in on that screw so we can catch the guy from the reflection" CSI-inspired drivel.
The facial animations are actually of use, and Team Bondi's done a great job optimizing the RAGE engine to take advantage of modern hardware.
Good game, but not without its flawsMoizMansoorV | Aug. 12, 2013 | Review of Grand Theft Auto IV
This GTA game brings more of the same free-roaming action as the older games, but with a brand-new engine and protagonist. The missions are great, but technical issues mar what is an otherwise flawless experience.
Highly recommended; you can get a lot of guides online that help optimize the game's performance for your system.
True to the source materialMoizMansoorV | Aug. 12, 2013 | Review of The Darkness II
This game gets most of the Top Cow comic's material right. The violence is appropriate, as is Jackie's behavior and demeanor. The Darkness is as manipulative and deadly as expected.
A little flawed, but ultimately a very fun game. Recommended.
Quite possibly the best addition to the Elder Scrolls seriesMoizMansoorV | June 10, 2013 | Review of The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim
The number of gameplay hours you can sink into this game are virtually endless. The graphics, quests, and the massive number of high-quality user-created content available via Steam Workshop are just a few of the reasons you should own this game.
Very highly recommended; GET IT NOW!
The pinnacle of video game storytellingMoizMansoorV | June 10, 2013 | Review of Bioshock Infinite
This game showcases Ken Levine's storytelling genius like no other. A fascinating, vibrant world with just enough "weird" under the hood to keep things fresh. Elizabeth is quite possibly among the best fictional characters I've ever encountered.
Highly recommended. BUY IT NOW!
Mostly the same as the original...and that's not a bad thing!MoizMansoorV | June 5, 2013 | Review of BioShock® 2
Bioshock 2 hits the right notes, most of the time. It might seem a little redundant to be roaming around Rapture yet again, but it's as fun as ever, with a few new tweaks to freshen things up.
The story's great, but not the best Ken Levine's come up with (Bioshock: Infinite takes the cake there). It's still head and shoulders above some of the other shooters out there though.
