Revolutionary.TheOneRedDevil | Aug. 15, 2013 | Review of Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare
Call of Duty 4 is several years old now, but still remains in many peoples hearts as the best game in the Call of Duty franchise and the one that got many people into gaming as a whole. The beautifully designed storyline matched by the very balanced multi-player on excellent maps and wonderful graphics (for its time) results in one of the most memorable games ever made.
Cole Phelps.TheOneRedDevil | Aug. 15, 2013 | Review of LA Noire The Complete Edition
LA Noire will go down as one of the revolutionary games, not for it's game play (which follows an excellent storyline and use of controls to find clues around the crime scene) but for the facial technology used for each of the characters. The voice acting and graphics is quite possibly the most realistic you'll find in any game at the moment.
The ultimate RPG.TheOneRedDevil | Aug. 15, 2013 | Review of The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim
Elder Scroll V: Skyrim is quite simply put, one of the best games of our generation. The expansive game play can literally have you playing for hours, without following the main storyline. I myself played a good 35 hours alone on side quests without even thinking about the main quest line. A beautifully immersive experience is enhanced by the stunning scenery that follows you everywhere in the game. An additional plus to the PC version are the mods, which you can download for free, that add numerous hours to already, a game in which you can play for days.
An excellent gameTheOneRedDevil | Aug. 15, 2013 | Review of Tropico 4
Somewhere in Paradise is where you will find Tropico 4, the very light hearted, humorous city builder game brings a fresh perspective to an already excellent franchise. The number of challenges and sandbox mode available will keep you playing the game for days to come.
Must Buy.TheOneRedDevil | Aug. 15, 2013 | Review of Sid Meier's Civilization V: Brave New World
Brave New World adds several new expansive gameplay features that add to a game that has an incredible depth and addictive nature, it will continue to leave you saying...
"Just one more turn?"
One of the Best Ever Games. Simply put.TheOneRedDevil | Aug. 12, 2013 | Review of Fallout 3
This game is honestly one of a kind, a pioneer of it's genre. The thrilling story-line, excellent voice acting and vast open world game play will keep you hooked for hours on end. There is the set storyline, but you can effectively do as you please as you progress around the zone finding weapons, Easter eggs and brand new characters and areas, which just adds to the incredible experience.
FIFA 13 adds even more to the gameTheOneRedDevil | Aug. 6, 2013 | Review of FIFA 13
Every year, EA explain that the new FIFA is the "best one yet", and this game is true to that nature. The additions of the improved impact engine and the slight reduction in the power of pace really slows the game down and brings it back to real life football, how the game should be. It tries to push players to make more passes in the build up play rather than just bombing it down the wing and cross the ball in (although that is still a problem online).
Most of the usual game modes are back, although there are no Single Player Online games in Ultimate Team and you can only level your virtual pro through online matches, the addition of the challenge mode adds something fresh to the game for you to pass the time.
No doubt the next FIFA will be even better than this, especially with the new generation.
A great game to play with your mates.TheOneRedDevil | Aug. 5, 2013 | Review of DiRT 3
Playing a couple of hours of Dirt 3, aside the wonderful graphics and excellent engine sounds, the single player part of the game can quickly feel quite repetitive but playing the game online really brings out the best of what the game has to offer. The differences in terrain can be easily felt, with the back end of the car seeming to kick out a lot more on the dirt when compared to that on tarmac. A very simplistic user interface complimented by a great soundtrack really adds to the detail of the game as well as a wide range of cars.
Overall, an excellent driving simulator, it could have a little more diversity on the single player side but a whole heartedly fun experience when playing online.
Everything you want from Borderlands, and more.TheOneRedDevil | Aug. 5, 2013 | Review of Borderlands 2
Borderlands is an excellent franchise, despite the slight anti climax feeling, left from the previous game, they have picked up with an exceptional pace and proved themselves yet again. The second game uses a very similar graphics style, which compliments the gameplay perfectly, as well as the brilliant one liners from the majority of the NPC's you meet. You will not be left disappointed.
The gameplay itself doesn't vary too far from what you know and love from the original game, why change something that doesn't need to be changed? An epic adventure in single player and if you drop into an online game with your friends or random people, expect that to multiply. The integration of the multiplayer side of the game now coming through Steam makes it a lot easier to set up games with your friends with a lot less lag for everybody, resulting in smooth gameplay.
The characters themselves feel very different from the first game, which gives a fresh sense to the game, allowing you to re-discover those powerful combos and weapon choices for each particular class.
The only negative flaw that I can think of is the user interface within the Inventory menu, which can sometimes feel a little drawn out, especially when you're trying to swap your weapons or accidentally equip that meaningless white item.
Overall, Borderlands 2 is a brilliant game and you will be thrilled by the storyline and the intense gameplay throughout.
