A Remastered Gem!

Thebestfootball | Aug. 13, 2013 | Review of DuckTales: Remastered

This game was a Nintendo classic. For all the negative people out there please remember this game has a core audience. That is people between the ages of 25 to 40. If you were alive in the 80 you probably remember the show, and this game is about as faithful tot he show as you can get. the graphics are crisp and very Disney, the sound track as amazing as ever, yes it may not be super hard or ground breaking, but this game was not meant to be that. It is a tribute tot he fans who remember picking up a game to completion on the NES in an hour or two.

Brain Teasing Puzzler!

Thebestfootball | Aug. 7, 2013 | Review of Ziro

A wealth of puzzles. Good brain teasers. Some of the puzzles are pretty difficult so it should supply hours of frustration getting all those achievements! However, the eco-friendy messages are really annoying.

Fun is the Keyword!

Thebestfootball | Aug. 7, 2013 | Review of VVVVVV

Very Fun Game! The retro-esque gravity defying platformer VVVVVV takes one back to the days of better gaming -- where skill actually matters because the reward is worth it. You'll find the game-play difficult but not overly so and the payoff of finding new areas or making an "impossible" maneuver worthwhile. The music gives me goosebumps and fits in quite well with the game -- that of exploring space in an strange and unknown dimension to find your crew-mates. Precision platforming -- retro style -- at its best! 10/10

Awesome!

Thebestfootball | Aug. 7, 2013 | Review of Tidalis

Excellent puzzle game and I generally hate puzzle games. TONS of depth; more game modes than I care to count, a ~10 hour long campaign that challenges you at every turn by gradually increasing the difficulty, acclimating you to new modes and concepts while setting different victory conditions. If you bought this game because you're an AI War fan then you will not be disappointed (With Arcen you never will be) because this game does for puzzle games what AI War does for the RTS genre; it breaks every convention while adding a level of depth never before seen in this style of game

Great Price for a Great Game!

Thebestfootball | Aug. 5, 2013 | Review of Lunar Flight - 4 Pack

Easily one of the best indie games and best sim experiences I've ever played. Sells for an absolute bargain price and is always challenging and rewards by the bucket. If you yearn for the halcyon days when PC sims felt and looked great but were still accessible whilst remaining challenging and lets not forget fun and atmospheric then I can't recommend Lunar Flight enough. It looks great, the music is amazing and the sound effects and harsh lighting add to the amazing atmosphere this game weaves around you as you drift across the barren lunar surface. Highly recommended

Well Worth Buying!

Thebestfootball | Aug. 5, 2013 | Review of Awesomenauts 4 Pack

This game is simply amazing, it's innovative, easy to learn, very addicting, and above all... Really fun to play. This pack really combines everything you need to get your game on!

There's almost no pressure (like it would be the case in most MOBA's) and the playerbase is really laid back about mistakes you make. The characters are original and funny. I really like the fact that there are this much multiplayer possibilities. You can quickly jump in on games that are in progress, play in a team with or against your friends, you can even play splitscreen with 1/2 friends against online people

An ideal game for when you don't really have much time or to play for hours with a few friends!

Different but Great!

Thebestfootball | Aug. 3, 2013 | Review of Deus Ex: Invisible War

Although not completely the perfect sequel that we hardcore fans were hoping for, this is still one of the most enjoyable titles that you will ever play. Any game bearing the Deus Ex name is going to be indisputably brilliant, and Invisible War is yet another masterpiece from gaming iconic Warren Spector. In my opinion the original Deus Ex is arguable the greatest game ever made, and those who do not play this sequel are missing out on what is the continuation of a truly outstanding franchise.

Different in a good way.

Thebestfootball | Aug. 3, 2013 | Review of GRID 2

GRID 2 manages to inject a nice dose of realistic physics within an arcade style racing game. The result is a game that simulator purists will surely frown upon.... (lack of view, no tuning) but everyone else will enjoy. The locations and cars look absolutely stunning. The single player is meaty and the multiplayer is absolutely worth playing.

Really Amazing!

Thebestfootball | Aug. 3, 2013 | Review of GRID

The physics are great, The AI tries to finesse their turning when in close proximity to you or others, giving a small amount of intelligence to them. They don't want to be hit! People say there needs to be a 'speed limit' so one doesn't go flying into walls? These cars are equipped with both standard brakes and an emergency brake, and the ability to NOT floor the gas at all times. Try it. Once you ease up on the throttle a little and practice your braking, it gets easy to dominate the simple circuit, but fret not, raising the difficulty will provide plenty of new challenges. This is the street version of DiRT 2, and when people say it should be "like dirt", they should take note that it is by the same publisher and pretty much a clone of DiRT2's engine with a fresh set of textures and no truck/buggy racing. What this game gives up in diversity of vehicle class, it makes up for with beautiful, fun tracks, and rewarding, precision driving.

Really Enjoyable

Thebestfootball | Aug. 1, 2013 | Review of Face Noir Cap

Face Noir is a game I can easily recommend. It executes well on every level (save the voice acting), and offers great puzzles, enjoyable characters, fabulous art design, and a fun (if pulpy) noir plotline. If you're interested in the Depression-era setting and enjoy a solid point-and-click adventure, you should absolutely check this one out.

Very Fun Game!

Thebestfootball | July 31, 2013 | Review of Hearts of Iron III

The game is a great step forward from HoI2. The command chain is impressive and the modular divisions give the player a lot of room to customize their armies. What many people don't really grasp is that the research system is very realistic. You are neither looked in historical options, nor can you disregard the traits your nation have. You start out with both theoretical and practical capacities in a wide range of areas, and the more you focus on thiose areas the better you become. But the reverse is also true, for example. Germany is good at submarines at the start of the game, but if you as Germany don't build a single submarine or even research submarine technology, then your capacity in both submarine research and building subs will dwindle. The game is very playable with the current patch 1.3, and it will be supported further.

Really Great!

Thebestfootball | July 26, 2013 | Review of Teleglitch: Die More Edition

Very tense and compelling top-down shooter. It has a survival horror feel to it with scarce resources and plenty of enemies. The difficulty is high, with permadeath and only being able to save at the end of a level. I would highly recommend this game if you like fast paced, tense action and difficult games that reward fast reflexes and resource management.
