Rule your island as a dict- I mean El Presidente.Mykylo | July 7, 2013 | Review of Tropico 4: Collectors Bundle
Tropico 4 is a city building game where you take an island with nothing on it and turn it into a thriving community. It is similar to SimCity, so if you like those type of games, Tropico 4 is absolutely worth it.
The game has a few different modes, but the two main ones are Campaign and Sandbox. In the Campaign, you are given a set of goals you have to complete in order to continue to the next island and the next part of the story. The campaign also teaches you how to do some of the things not shown in the tutorial. In the Sandbox mode, you are free to build your island however you want. You can choose to make your island thrive from tourist attractions, having farms as your main source of income, having mines for your main income, etc. You can choose to be either the lovable and caring dictator or you can become a feared, tyrannical dictator.
In the sandbox and campaign, there are 8 different faction groups you need to keep happy. Sometimes an action you take will make one faction like you better while it makes another like you less. If you don't help any faction, the factions will become restless and cause many protests. Some may invade your island with their military.
My only problem with it was that sometimes it gets a little repetitive if city building isn't your favorite thing. If it is your favorite thing, you would absolutely love Tropico 4.
Very surprised by how fun this was.Mykylo | June 8, 2013 | Review of Euro Truck Simulator 2
Euro Truck Simulator 2 is absolutely great. The game is exactly what it says it is: a truck simulator. Usually I'm not attracted to this kind of game. I actually first played it just to see how bad it was, but then I saw how fun it turned out to be and ended up buying it for myself.
When playing, it feels like you are actually inside the truck driving all around Europe. It gives you the idea of what driving a truck is really like with things such as long driving hours, having to sleep, and having to fuel up the truck. If you feel like, you can get away from the simulation part and drive recklessly, but driving recklessly is discouraged with fines. Euro Truck Simulator 2 should not be written off just because of how boring it sounds. Kind of like "never judge a book by it's cover," don't judge the game by it's name. Euro Truck Simulator 2 is a solid 90/100 for me.
Best game I've played in a long time.Mykylo | June 5, 2013 | Review of BioShock Infinite (NA)
I absolutely loved Bioshock Infinite. The story is superb to most games made in the past few years. The atmosphere of the game is so wonderful and beautiful. My favorite part was a companion who actually does something. In other games you get a companion you have to babysit the whole time, but in Bioshock Infinite, your companion, Elizabeth, doesn't need babysitting and actually gives you items every now and then. The only downside for me was that the combat got a little repetitive towards the end of the game.
