Awesome end to the trilogy

Sparmoro | March 8, 2012 | Review of Mass Effect 3 (NA) dns

First off, I wanted to tell you that I'm writing this review after having spent about 20 hours in the single player as well as 4 hours into the multiplayer.

It is with a lot of anticipation that I've been waiting for this game and therefore I have to say that I had high expectations for it. So far, I've been very pleased and impressed with the campaign. It is everything you have been enjoying from the previous 2 games minus all the rince and repeat useless stuff from the previous games (like the in-game hacking).

It is of course sad that EA/Bioware weren't able to add the Frostbyte 2 engine to the game, but every gamer needs to go pass this and see what an epic ending to this trilogy this is.

I understand that people are frustrated of all the day 1 dlc stuff, but c'mon a great game stays a great game. Plus, they give you so many hours of gameplay compared to some other games.

It is interesting how choices made from both first games really reflect on the events of this 3rd instalment. Mass Effect 3 brings back the good and fun combat, the awesome dialogues as well as the epic story.

On top of that, I was impressed with the multi-player. To be honest, I really didn't expect much from it, but after playing it for 4 hours last night with 2 of my friends I had lots of fun. If you are a fan of cooperative games were you team up versus the computer you will be very please. It is so much fun to go through waves and waves of enemies and theirs enough difficulties that everyone can find their count. The item and levelling is also very well done, although it's not revolutionary, I think its a good start to the franchise.

Finally, I think its a must for every gamer to play this entire trilogy. If you've played the first 2 games and enjoyed them then go grab it and if you have never played the previous games I recommend starting with the first 2 instalments.

Rockstar needs to learn from SR3

Sparmoro | Dec. 29, 2011 | Review of Saints Row: The Third dns

First off, I have to say that I have never played SR1 or SR2. Therefore, I wasn't sure what I was getting my hands-on when I chose to purchase this game and let's say that I was more than impressed with it. After 2-3 gta that all felt the same to me, I was wondering what THQ could bring to this type of game.

I went through the entire game playing about 20 hours of very diverse gaming. I was impressed by how much all the side missions kept me driven off the main. Normally, in games like GTA, you don't really feel like doing the crappy side stuff like starting a cop mission and everything, but in this game every single minigame is fun.

Of course, some will say, bah this game isn't much realistic, but guess what it's a game and its supposed to be fun and it is!!! Plus the soundtrack is amazing. Starting a mission falling from a helicopter with Kanye West's "Power" is simply amazing.

Overall I think this game rewards everything everyone loved doing in GTA plus it adds a whole lot more.
