Short, simple, decentSulfie | Oct. 28, 2015 | Review of Tomb Raider GOTY - PC
I played this game with low expectations, the trailers and gameplay looked like Uncharted with a female protagonist, and after completing it, that is exactly how I would describe this game. The combat is your typical third person shooter with chest high walls scattered around, the combat controls are pretty good though. You also get to acquire a few weapons, a bow, a shotgun, an assault rifle, and a handgun, which can all be upgraded. It's not a huge selection, but it's still better than being limited to only two. The puzzles / tombs really let the game down imo, extremely short and easy to solve, the puzzles are mainly in the tombs, and only took me a minute or so to solve. The tombs are generally just one room containing the puzzle and a chest with some material you use to upgrade your weapons. The story was actually a lot better than I expected, though the ending was rather obvious. Most of the characters were also either uninteresting or annoying. I really only liked one of the characters, Conrad Roth. Overall it's a decent game, but not as good as the old ones.
Short, Linear, enjoyableSulfie | Oct. 26, 2015 | Review of Murdered Soul Suspect - PC
I finally got around to completing this game the other day, it took me 10 hours total including all the achievements. Overall this game is enjoyable, but there's not much to it unfortunately. Being a detective that get's shot, and trying to find your killer I expected more detective work, maybe along the lines of L.A. Noire. Instead you mostly walk around, avoid / kill demons whenever you come across them, which is easy because you are just given a button combination to do and you destroy them, and look for clues. Possessing people is mostly useless unless the person is relevant to the story. Most of the time you can only read minds, which just has the character you possess 'say' some piece of information, kinda just flavour text. The story is quite good, the graphics are good, the controls are good. In the end I would pick this game up on a sale, maybe for around £7.
A step away from traditional survival horrorSulfie | Oct. 26, 2015 | Review of Resident Evil 4 Biohazard 4 - PC
Resident Evil 4 was probably the first time Capcom tried to do something a bit different with the franchise. More action oriented and less survival horror, this game feels like it just holds onto being called Resident Evil. I haven't encountered any audio or visual bugs, controls are a little clunky (imo) but nothing that will stop you playing. Still a good game and since most of the Resident Evil games that followed after became progressively more action less survival horror, you could say this is the last great Resident Evil game, well worth having for any fan of the franchise.
An improvement over GTA IVSulfie | June 1, 2015 | Review of Grand Theft Auto V Post - PC
I have played every GTA on release, also loved every GTA.. then IV came out and it just didn't feel right.. GTA V fixed most, if not all of my issues with IV, the missions are more engaging and fun, the phone calls are nowhere near as annoying, the characters and more likeable imo, the vehicles handle better and the first person mode adds a different and enjoyable perspective on the GTA world. My only real issue has been the online.. it's not as good as I thought it would be, even feels like just a grind sometimes with no real enjoyment.. Maybe it will get better at higher ranks, but imo it shouldn't feel like a chore to get to higher ranks and drain all the fun out of it.
Not badSulfie | July 4, 2014 | Review of How to Survive - PC
I was quite looking forward to this game, as I always am with zombie survival style games, but as per usual it just isn't quite right. When playing solo it can feel quite a drag. The game is very light hearted and I quite like the crafting, but due to the small scale and relative ease of the game you can quite quickly become bored unless you have a friend to mess around with.
GreatSulfie | July 4, 2014 | Review of State of Decay - PC
This title, for me at least, is almost the perfect zombie survival game. Looking after a group of survivors, scavenging for supplies, relocating the home base, building amenities.. I am glad I found a survival / scavenging based game that isn't based around other human players in an mmo style setting like DayZ / Nether / Rust. They usually devolve into every man for himself along with kill on sight behaviour. Only downsides are the rare bug, and no co-op. Well worth buying!
Superb sequel to an already great game.Sulfie | Oct. 17, 2013 | Review of Company of Heroes 2 - PC DVD
Company of Heroes 2, even after all the comotion of low metacritic user scores of people being upset with how russians / germans are portrayed, is one of the best RTS games I have played. After being introduced to the series by a friend who bought Company of Heroes 1 for me, and sinking 70 hours into it, I pre-ordered CoH 2. Since then I have only put in 110 hours into it but I have loved every minute of it. The campaign is a little focused on certain, shall we say "hollywood scenes" but still enjoyable, and the games main focus is on the multiplayer aspect, which is a blast.
Nice, but quite difficult.Sulfie | Oct. 17, 2013 | Review of Men of War Red Tide - PC
Men of War: Red Tide is a pretty nice RTS game that I picked up after seeing it because it reminded me of CoH. It is a game made for people that love the genre and are quite good at it, the game can be quite difficult and unforgiving. Each unit has it's own inventory and you can pick up weapons dropped by dead soldiers. The AI is a little hit and miss but the game overall is good and challenging.
