Cheap but CheerfulNarsuaq | Oct. 30, 2013 | Review of FUEL
Fuel takes place in an immense open world which has an area of 14,000KM². That's pretty impressive. In the world you can ride on your motorbike across the vast deserts of RedRock Bluffs, joy-ride in a muscle car on the highway to Dustbowl City, or keep warm in your trusty yet very powerful school bus in the harsh cold of Pinwheels Ridge. Fuel does offer a really good experience despite its very cheap feel and sub-par racing. That being said, it certainly is addictive enough to play through to the very end. And if racing wasn't enough there's plenty of collectables to find in the form of Vista Points and Vehicle Liveries which you can unlock. Give it a try!
GOOD MORNING TROPICONarsuaq | Oct. 24, 2013 | Review of Tropico 4: Collectors Bundle
Have you ever dreamt of being an all powerful dictator? Have you ever wanted to live on a paradise island? I ask you, have you ever thought both would be possible at once? Well, I believe Tropico 4 may fulfill your dreams... (virtually of course). It's certainly one of those games which keeps you playing over and over again until your hands are bloody stumps. Don't worry though, as El Presidente, you can simply get new ones...
I enjoyed greatly!Narsuaq | Oct. 23, 2013 | Review of Bioshock Infinite
As a gamer who's more into game mechanics rather than story, I can say I really enjoyed playing this. I've never played any of the other Bioshock games but I've had friends and family go on at me at how good it is, and I'm glad they did. The pacing of the game was perfect. It starts you off with not too much complication, usually walking around a fair, and you eventually get to use your first gun. Using the Vigors was also a joy to use. The combat is entertaining for a while but when you get to Elizabeth things change a bit. Using her powers has an awesome feel when you request cover, or an automated turret. The skylines also helped make things feel a bit more intense. The story of the game may be a tad confusing. I myself suck at following story, but I think it was delivered well enough for me to understand at least 80% of it. The ending wasn't too shabby either. I'd say you probably need to play this game in order to understand and experience it for yourself.
We're like an old Married CoupleNarsuaq | Oct. 17, 2013 | Review of Borderlands 2
It goes without saying I have a love/hate relationship with this game. On one hand I've been thrown into a deadly world with bandits trying to ride me as a meat bicycle where avoiding proves very challenging. On the other, I'm in an environment that rewards me for progressing forward with the promise of shiny new loot. The later stages of the game is hard, very hard, and it really stops me wanting to play the game. Yet if I am willing to make the effort and progress just that little bit further, I might find myself with a brand new weapon that shoots out lightning, or a new shield that explodes like a boss upon equipping it. There's very much a sense of "Tug-of-war" going on here and I think this game is just good enough to make you want to keep playing.
BRINKNarsuaq | Sept. 13, 2013 | Review of Brink Complete Pack
I owned this game on Xbox360 and just bought it now for PC. I did actually like this game despite the fact it felt like a bit of a let down. There was no real campaign, which did bother me. That being said if you can gather some friends to play with, it can be a tonne of fun.
