Something slightly different for an MMOPowerGreen | May 24, 2013 | Review of The Secret World
This just sucks you in nicely. You can customise your character very nicely by mixing two different weapons and then making your deck. Want a shotgun and a blade? Go for it! Me, I'm just working my way through elemental magic and a shotgun right now. I prefer the levelling to the endgame, and with 3 factions and a handy 3 slots, I can have hours of fun without a sub. It even gives you 30 days of sub benefits with the game purchase, so you can feel the power of the bonus from day 1.
The questing is quite nice, and doesn't do too much hand-holding with sparkles and such like. Something you have to thing. Overall, a refreshing change in an MMO.
A proper gamePowerGreen | May 24, 2013 | Review of Avernum: Escape From The Pit
This is a proper game, with none of the namby-pamby nannying that a lot of "modern" games force on you. You can actually make your own characters! This is one of the games where you can actually look past the graphics, because underneath is some rich gameplay and a fantasy storyline. Take a game like this one and spruce the graphics up a bit (adding things like zoom and more animations), and you'll have a 100 scoring title.
Not as bad as some people make outPowerGreen | May 24, 2013 | Review of Grotesque Tactics: Evil Heroes
I got this upon release and played to the end. While it wasn't the most fantastic game in the world, it was perfectly fun and playable. The graphics are reasonable, and the humour is OK. Now that it is just £6.99, if you like RPGs then you'll get many hours of play.
FPS DiabloPowerGreen | May 24, 2013 | Review of Borderlands 2
Just like the original, this is an FPS Diablo. It is great single player, but co-op it is fantastic. Lots of nice loot drops, character development, distinctive classes, amazing graphics, an immersive storyline, loveable characters - this game has it all. Oh, and it has a sense of humour too.
Buy it. You won't regret it.
You'll just keep on playingPowerGreen | May 24, 2013 | Review of Dishonored
This game has a very good graphics style; something which is quite essential for me in modern gaming. If you don't like what you're looking at for such a long time, then it takes something extra special to keep you playing.
Talking of game mechanics, this has some good ones. You don't have to play it any one set way. Want to be a good guy and not kill anyone? You can. Want to make a bloodbath? You can do that too. Don't like stealthing? Just blink in with guns blazing. On top of this, your play style affects the world. For example, if you kill a lot of people then you'll get more rats appearing and a different ending.
Combat is very fluid, they have the control system just right. Gameplay is segmented into areas. Clear an area and get a rating for it. Maybe you'll want to reply to find that last relic? Within the area you'll have various routes, such as roofs and ratholes, or a simple and direct approach. You can go a different route next time if you like.
Overall, a great game. If you don't have it, buy it.
