Extremely fun but still quite buggy.

Seren666 | Dec. 24, 2012 | Review of Chivalry: Medieval Warfare PRE

I was a bit reluctant at first to buy it but now I have I don't regret it one bit! At first my aging computer had problems running it and none of the graphics settings increased my FPS so I had to manually disable some CPU intensive things from the settings file, which took almost an hour but was well worth it! Once I managed to get some decent frame rates I began the archer training then joined a game with my brother and a friend of his. My first game didn't go very well as I was constantly getting beheaded by melees but my second game I decided to get up high, like an archer would do irl and ended up 9-2. Since then I've just played archer and usually end up with around 2kdr and I've learnt to block most melee attacks properly =) This game is hugely fun with friends as you can get them to protect you as an archer or protect them in battle. As an archer you get an arrow cam which you can very the arrow in first person, it is very useful as it can help you calculate where your next shot should be. The only problems with the game are currently (after first patch): very laggy without tweaks, some graphic glitches and nowhere to view stats/leaderboards but all can be fixed in patches to come!

Gave it a 91 because the game is still quite new and the bugs will likely be fixed in later patches.

This game actually scared me!

Seren666 | Nov. 14, 2011 | Review of BioShock DNS

I've played many horror games and none had actually scared me before. Bioshock changed that for me, I found it hard to keep playing at night simply because it was too scary. This was quite some time ago though, but still those radio messages were really creepy... The underwater city of Rapture was amazing and the story was well written, this game was one of my favourites, despite scaring me to death!

Fun, but gets repetitive after a while

Seren666 | Nov. 14, 2011 | Review of Sanctum

Coming from a fan of both Tower Defences and First Person Shooters, I would say they have both been mixed together quite well in Sanctum. I liked different types of buildings, weapons and monsters,, they were done extremely well, but I didn't really like the waiting time between waves. Having to wait for all the players to ready up got extremely annoying and started to bore me. If we could build while the monsters were spawning it would add a lot more excitement to it. Even if there was a time limit for building (say 20secs) then I would have enjoyed it more. Also, in Australia it was quite hard to find servers that weren't laggy which also stopped me from playing it often.

Best zombie game (imo)

Seren666 | Nov. 10, 2011 | Review of Killing Floor

Killing Floor with it's various classes and difficulties provides players with endless hours of fun. I've played around 200 hrs, while my brother plays it 24/7 and has clocked up over 2,000hrs! With me I tend to get bored of any game after playing it around 2hrs, but with Killing Floor I can play almost all day. I find shooting zombies heads of (especially in slow motion) very satisfying and usually go Commando. I recommend this game for any Zombie game lovers or anyone who like First Person Shooters in general as you are guaranteed to love it. Tripwire did a good job updating it for over 2 years, though have seemed to have slowed down and only doing holiday event updates (which are extremely fun), which is a tad annoying for older players who would like to see some glitches and game crashes fixed. It also has extremely good graphics, especially for a game running on UT2004's engine, not even my bro's new computer can max it out!

Old but good.

Seren666 | July 9, 2011 | Review of Alex Kidd in the Enchanted Castle

Despite how old the game is, how bad the graphics are and the weird logic of the game, it is STILL an amazingly fun game to play. What makes it fun is actually the weirdness of the game, such as the power-ups. I had loads of fun on the SEGA and am still having fun on the PC 7yrs later!
