Going to work CAN be fun

Ratmandu79 | May 2, 2012 | Review of The Sims 3: Ambitions (EU)

One of the best expansions for a sims game i think i have ever tried. The ability to go and do a job in any of the new professions adds new depth to the gameplay. Busting truly does make you feel good...... and collecting the ghosts to either display or make money from does keep things interesting. Also great for those of you who like to be in control of the look of your neighbourhood is the architect profession. All in all a really good, immersive expansion to a game that is already more immersive than most.

Solid

Ratmandu79 | May 2, 2012 | Review of The Sims 3 (EU)

There may be a few things missing from earlier sims games like the snooker table but all in all, this game is just as good if not better than any other sims game that has come before it. plenty of content available to expand on the gameplay and more towns to live in make this a must have for any sims fan.

Pretty much Perfect

Ratmandu79 | Sept. 2, 2011 | Review of Deus Ex: Human Revolution Augmented Edition

This is probably the closest to perfection that a video can get. despite initial teething problems and an influx of patches at the games release to make it work preoperly the game is now working perfectly and all can enjoy what is probably the game of 2011. whether you want to go in guns blazing or sneak your way around every enemy in the game there is an augmentation and path for you. loaded with hidden places to explore for all those RPG fanatics out there and plenty of enemies to satisfy even the most hardcore FPS nut. exceeds every expectation you could have possibly had whether you are a fan of the original game or if it is your first foray into the Deus Ex universe. Definitely a must buy.

Go Ezio

Ratmandu79 | Aug. 19, 2011 | Review of Assassins Creed Brotherhood

After the success of AC2 this is NOT what i expected. after ubisoft announced the series as a Trilogy the fact that they releaswed another game in Ezio's era threw me just a little but OH MY what a great move it was. really pushes the story forward and with a third Ezio installment due at the end of the year, this second episode just keeps getting bigger. and better.

Mediocre

Ratmandu79 | Aug. 19, 2011 | Review of Aliens vs Predator Pre

The premise is amazing but at roughly 4 hours per campaign (3 in total) and a very lacklustre multiplayer this game could have been SO much better. i still play the single player occasionally to get my heart pumping but the multiplayer is avoided religiously......

Good Sequel

Ratmandu79 | Aug. 19, 2011 | Review of Deus Ex: Invisible War Capsule

After the amazingness of the first game this was an obvious buy when it was first released. not as memorable as the first game but all the mechanics are still there and it really adds to the story from the first game.

Enjoyable

Ratmandu79 | Aug. 19, 2011 | Review of Kane and Lynch 2: Dog Days

Enjoyable but not a brilliant game. the antagonists are as insane as they were in the first game but the "documentary" style camera can be rather disorienting during long play sessions. i had to quit a couple times due to nausea but still enjoyed the game. only managed one playthrough though which is a bad thing in my book. i prefer a game that can keep me coming back....

Classic

Ratmandu79 | Aug. 19, 2011 | Review of Deus Ex: Game of the Year Edition DNS

After my initial playthrough of Half Life i came across this game and it blew me away in the same way half life did. brilliant mechanics for its day, deep and engrossing storyline and brilliant shooting gameplay make it a classic in every sense of the word......
