Cooperation Pushed to the LimitsPhan7om | July 3, 2013 | Review of Guns of Icarus Online
This game gives a very enjoyable experience to those who have friends to play with because you cannot just solo this game by yourself.
Each ship has a 4 man crew chosen from 3 classes: Pilot, Engineer and Gunner. Each class has items to compliment what their role is and what they do. The Engineer has more slots for repair items while the Gunner has more lots for ammunition to switch to while using the guns.
There are also parts to repair on the ship like hull, balloon, engines and cannons. So if a part is destroyed on a ship it will not function. For instance if the balloon is destroyed you must either repair it for risk falling out of the sky, if the engines are destroyed your ship will have a hard time moving unless they repair is and so on.
The only thing that keeps this game from getting a perfect is how small the ship battles are. There are simply not enough ships to fit the huge size of the maps and most of the time fighting is simply "Fight at point A" for the whole game.
Game for every kind of FPS fanPhan7om | July 3, 2013 | Review of Deus Ex: Game of the Year Edition
This game appeals to almost every FPS fan by having multiple ways to get to your objective. There are 4 ways to play this game, all with their Pros and Cons. Stealth-Lethal, Stealth-Non-lethal, Run-and-gun-Lethal and Run-and-gun-non-lethal.
The lean over a wall mechanic is simple but extremely useful for Stealth gameplay and checking how many hostiles there are to either engage or sneak by. It also has 2 ways to dispatch enemies: Non-lethal or Lethal. With this mechanic soldiers and NPCs will have different reactions towards you. Some of it may also affect your gameplay from having the Armory in the game giving you different ammo to use or your first partner's disposition towards you.
Although what keeps this game from deserving a perfect is the bugs that uncommonly occur in the game and the limited options settings in the Vanilla launcher. Overall, a must buy for any PC gamer to add into their ultimate collection
