Best of its kindSuperNOVAfx | July 27, 2013 | Review of Beat Hazard
Beat Hazard is easily the best arcade/twin stick shooters I have ever played. The sheer amount of enemies thrown at you is astounding. If you don't plan ahead and don't act fast, this game will eat you alive. Playing a long high BPM track on suicidal difficulty will seem like an eternity if you are not prepared well enough. Once you progress through the game, you can unlock different perks that will make your life easier, but don't expect a walk through the park cause you won't get anything close to that. The game rewards quick reflexes and well controlled movements and can make you feel like god once you overcome certain obstacles.
Medieval Warfare at its bestSuperNOVAfx | July 27, 2013 | Review of Chivalry: Medieval Warfare
In a world ruled by FPS and MOBA games, Chivalry is a much needed breath of fresh air. Out of all the medieval warfare games (Mount and Blade, War of the Roses), I find Chivalry the best one for short periods of time full of action. The game is pretty hard to master, especially when playing against good players, but with time you will know when to attack and when to block or retreat. Playing with friends is the best way to enjoy Chilvalry and working together to reach your obhective is very satisfying.
Great Online FPSSuperNOVAfx | July 27, 2013 | Review of Battlefield 3 (EU)
Great online FPS experience for the casual player. It is really fun to play with organized squads and the progression system/gun, map and environment variety, as well as the numerous ways you can play the game will make you come back for more time and time again. This game is easy to pick up, but hard to master but the journey sure is pleasing. Don't miss out on one of the best multiplayer FPS games that came out in the last couple of years!
Platforming PerfectionSuperNOVAfx | July 26, 2013 | Review of Super Meat Boy
Super Meat Boy is one of the first indie titles I've bought and still play it, 3 years later. This games has more value than AAA titles and will cause you more deaths than your entire game collection. Dying and trying over and over again was never so much fun until SMB. While the learning curve may seem steep at the beginning, once you get the hang of it, it is extremely satisfying to complete levels and beat the times of your Steam friends. This game will make Mario look like a slow old man. I like to call it the Trackmania of platformers because finishing the level doesn't mean anything here, it's all about the time you finish in. Super Meat Boy is probably the best platformer I've ever played and I've been playing these critters since the 90s.
Good FPS ExperienceSuperNOVAfx | July 26, 2013 | Review of RAGE: Special Edition (Europe)
Rage is an excellent FPS with great visuals, really nice sound effects and some memorable locations and monster fights. Unfortunately for it, it was developed by id Software, the same guys that brought us classics like Doom, Quake and Wolfenstein. Many people were expecting something similar with Rage and, sadly, the title couln't deliver. Does this make Rage a bad game? Absolutely not. While it may fall short compared to the titans of the FPS genre, it is still one of the best shooting experiences to come out in the last few years. Sure it has flaws like poor storyline, an ending that is far from the best and the fact that it's liniar, but it has one of the most satisfying AI fights you'll ever encounter in an modern FPS and, in the end, this matters the most in this genre.
Best Overall Trucking ExperienceSuperNOVAfx | July 26, 2013 | Review of Euro Truck Simulator 2
Euro Truck Simulator 2 is my new favorite way to relax after a hard day at work. This game is so relaxing and "laid back" that you can even listen to your girlfriend (or at least pretend to) while you drive your newly purchased truck. Building your trucking empire is a long, but rewarding process. The developers are really great and are constantly working to make the game better and, if this wasn't enough, there is a very active modding scene for this game making the game even more fun. I highly recommend checking this game out.
