Top quality just like the base gameReverseKev | Aug. 5, 2013 | Review of Borderlands 2 Season Pass (ANZ)
The Season pass is a must buy if you want to experience all the humour and story in the base game. This pack of DLC is a great addition especially the 4th DLC, Tiny Tina's Assault of Dragon Keep which is a play on Dragons and Dungeons with Tiny Tina telling the story of the Vault Hunters playing a board game. The Ultimate Vault Hunter pack is also amazing allowing you to finish a second skill tree and letting you get even stronger to have an easier time in UVHM. With the new set of Borderlands 2 DLCs coming out, getting the first season is a must for Borderlands fans. Some of the earlier DLCS (1 + 2) aren't as long or as good in terms of presentation but is made up through the various new guns each DLC brings. A great season pass at a great discount price, a must buy.
Unique gameReverseKev | May 14, 2013 | Review of Magicka
This is quite a different game as I expected RPG aspects but as soon as I learnt there actually was little RPG elements I picked it up. It is nearly all skill and experience based so having good mechanics really helps. It is very fun as it is quite challenging to pick it up but when you do, you feel very good and can start burning through enemies like most games. The co-op actually didn't work for me despite all the good reviews praising it so I was a little disappointed.
Great gameReverseKev | May 3, 2013 | Review of BioShock Infinite (ANZ)
While this gameplay is sometimes criticised, the audio, visuals, story and presentation really do make up for it.
I don't usually play many straight out FPS so I really like the using your guns and vigors together to kill enemies effectively. The difficulty curve imo is quite good, and lets you learn how to play and have all the vigors before the enemies get a bit harder. The
Elizabeth is a great companion and is not the damsel in distress you normally see in games although she is locked away. She will constantly aid you in battle, revive you when you clumsily die, pick locks for you and even throw in a few coins to help you buy those awesome upgrades.
The upgrade system is split in to infusions and weapon/vigor upgrades. Infusions are pretty much elixers that upgrade your health, salts or shield (you can choose) and are found throughout the game although you do need to go out of your way to find most of them. The weapon/vigor upgrade system is based on the gold you collect, you do lose gold when you die, but if you have enough left over you can buy yourself cool upgrades for your weapon, up to 4.
If you get lost, there is also a button to help you unless you are playing in 1999 mode, which in 1999, there'd most definitely not have anything helping you find where you need to go :)
This is an amazing game and a must buy if you like any of the previous Bioshocks', like a good story or like a unique FPS.
