nicely done rockstar

RLFAV | Oct. 29, 2013 | Review of Max Payne 3: Complete Pack

this is easily one of the best (if not the best) third person shooters I have ever played. the action is entertaining and the bullet time is undeniably fun. Rockstar has truly done it with this game. I recommend this game to any third person shooter fans out there. the scenery is beautiful and the game has plenty of cut scenes. overall, Max Payne is a great third person shooter.

RLFAV | Oct. 26, 2013 | Review of Ray man Legends

After shunting the recent efforts of Mario into a lurid green U-bend, Rayman Origins proved a tough act to follow. As a sequel Rayman Legends initially disappoints with what seems like a shift away from speedy platforming, but warms up into something wonderful after you’ve played for a few hours.

Originally planned as a Wii U exclusive, Legends is keen to showcase the Gamepad functions right from the very start of the game. Murfy is a green grinning fairy that pops up in specific levels, moving objects and cutting ropes when you appropriately poke the gamepad’s touchscreen. The problem is, most people won’t own one.

On the 360 code provided for review, Murfy’s actions have been mapped to one button. Press B, and he’ll activate whatever object he’s currently beside. Unfortunately, you can’t control Murfy’s position: the game doesn’t do a terrible job of ensuring that the green fairy is always locked on the object you’re expecting, but there’s an overall lack of precision here that doesn’t gel with the razor-sharp platforming. Anyone can activate Murfy in co-op, which immediately proves to be a bit of a nightmare. 'Don’t touch the B button!'

Thankfully the latter half of Legends uses Murphy in a less frustrating way, and it isn’t long before the game offers up hardcore goodies: time trial trophies don’t appear this time, but instead we get loads of bastard-hard speed-run missions.

As things open up, the best level designs surface. 20,000 Lums Under The Sea blends Bioshock’s vision of velvet and brass with a classic James Bond tone. The overall aesthetic in Legends however doesn’t match the magic of Origins, but this isn’t an overly negative point: it’s like trying to compare Disney to Pixar. Stand-out moments ensure it never feels average, and the quantity of stuff to do puts Origins to shame.

A whopping chunk of Origins is playable within the game, and your ‘Awesomeness’ level can be increased indefinitely by competing in weekly and daily challenges. Rayman Legends isn’t perfect, but it’s still a cracking game.

amazing

RLFAV | Oct. 26, 2013 | Review of BioShock

The hours spent playing this masterpiece were the perfect encapsulation of why videogaming is such a favourite waste of time for so many of us. Thrilling, terrifying, moving, confusing, amusing, compelling, and very very dark. BioShock isn't simply the sign of gaming realising its true cinematic potential, but one where a game straddles so many entertainment art forms so expertly that it's the best demonstration yet how flexible this medium can be. It's no longer just another shooter wrapped up in a pretty game engine, but a story that exists and unfolds inside the most convincing and elaborate and artistic game world ever conceived.

RLFAV | Oct. 26, 2013 | Review of Payday 2

payday 2 is one of the best co-op you will ever play. it's fun alone and even more with friends. you have guns,pistols,shutguns,masks,malls, banks and more! everythnig that make you and your friend laugh and have time is in there! even though you are doing the same you will not feel even a bit! you are so focusing in the game you will want to destroy your screen when one of your friends will have to leave. the guns make sure that no cops will even come near you and shutguns make the cops regret that they wanted to be a cop. but the game is very hard to new people. my most favorite heist is the night club - you can pretend your dancing or you are the DJ have so much fun!!! i got this game for my birthday present from my friends and they having fun hear me having fun (yea, they are good friends) but the AI is not that good

well, the game, is really fun to play, the multy is boring, but the single player is so F*ING A-M-A-Z-I-N-G. the story in not that good but the gameplay, like most the the games of AC, is really amazing/ The garphics are phenomenal, the sensitivity is easy to control and more more more is you want to buy the game, you should! but is you want to buy it for the MP then forget it..
