Cinematic experience

Razzon | Feb. 11, 2013 | Review of Sleeping Dogs: Limited Edition

This game feels like a hong kong action movie, with a unique setting (there are no other games set in hong kong as far as I know).

The graphics are amazing, especially on the PC with HD texture packs. One bad thing is maybe the character models, some of them are not really detailed.

The combat is intuitive and satisfying, use of guns in hong kong is prohibited so you have to apply your kung fu skills (well, most of the time, there are some shooting scenes, which are very well done, too).

The story is amazing, seriously it feels like a movie. I can recommend this game to anyone who wants a solid experience.

One of the best MMOs lately

Razzon | Jan. 27, 2013 | Review of Guild Wars 2: Heroic Edition

Guild Wars 2 takes place 250 years after the first one, but you don't need to play the first one to understand the story in GW2.

The art style of this game is amazing, you will find everything from snowy mountains to tropical beaches. The combat system is refreshing you can move while casting, every character is unique in something (Thief has no cooldowns, elementalists can switch between stances etc.).

The dynamic events are fun, but they will get repetitive after some time. The good thing is that ArenaNet constantly keeps adding new events.

PvP is fun, although it's best played with a group of friends, communication is key in arena pvp and world versus world, too.

The things I was disappointed in is after completing every zone, doing every dungeon there is not much else to do. Sure, you can grind dungeons for gear, but that's not what I was looking for when I got this game. Also the voice acting is horrible for the majority of the characters.

All in all, you can get out of this game 200 hours at least, so it's definitely worth the money.

Best combat system in a game

Razzon | Jan. 26, 2013 | Review of Batman Arkham City: Game of the Year -

A sequel to the awesome Batman:Arkham Asylum, Arkam city takes place in a more detailed, open world setting, with a lot of stuff to do besides the main story (collecting riddlet trophies, sidequests, doing challenges). You can easily spend more than 20+ hours playing the game, absolutely worth the money.

The combat is amazing, the countering, comboing works perfectly, no other game has done that yet.

There are a lot of familiar faces in the game, for example Catwoman (you can also play as her for a few missions), Mr Freeze, Penguin and of course Joker just to name a few.

The game is visually stunning, the physics are excellent. If you have a GeForce card, you can turn on PhysX which adds additional effects.

The only thing that isn't done as well as in the first game is the narrative, but that may be because of the open world nature of the game.

Cyberpunk RPG, play it the way you want

Razzon | July 13, 2012 | Review of Deus Ex: Human Revolution

The game is set in a Futuristic world, where human augumentation is creating a lot of different opinions. Play as Adam Jensen, a security guard who almost died after an attack on the company. The augumentations saved his life, now he has to live with them.

The game is incredibly diverse, you can play it as a shooter and wreck your way through the game, or you can play a stealthy character focusing on avoiding guards, finding secret passages and hacking computers. You get a little more XP for the latter, but the former is just as fun.

The soundtrack of this game is amazing, if I knew it sooner i would have bought the Augumented edition.

The mention some of its flaws, the bossights are a bit out-of-place, and are really hard as a stealth character with no real firepower. Also, character faces could have been better.

Overall, the game is really fun with an interesting story and a long gameplay time by today's standards.
