Vastly Underrated and a hidden gem of a game

Thunderbaws | Nov. 24, 2013 | Review of Alpha Protocol - PC

Firstly I can say this stands alone as the only game I enjoyed playing more on a second play through. Secondly you have to realise this is no shooter, its an RPG in a rare modern setting that contains shooting elements. At the start your aim will be poor till you level up the weapon you wield. Conversations are more complex than your standard good and evil responses and that makes things far more interesting and were multiple playthroughs not only are desired but near essential to really see what the game has to offer you. If you like RPGs at all or fancy something that plays out a little different you owe it to yourself to give this game your time!


Best just got better

Thunderbaws | Nov. 24, 2013 | Review of Football Manager 2014 - PC

With its new modern interface and improved match engine I could see right away It was worth investing in this years version. I love the way your introduced to your new club by the chairman then your assistant manager runs through the set up to allow you to customise how much involvement you have. However, the most outstanding new feature this year is the introduction of the steam workshop. This allows you to download tactics, skins, club logos, transfer updates you name it. All at the click of a button this alone makes it worth any fans of the series even lapsed fans getting this game! Classic mode also simplifies the game giving a nod to the early days of the game that some players may prefer.


An excellent but rough around the edges experience

This is the only game I have ever played that I enjoyed the 2nd play through more than I did the first. I find it takes a while to get into the mindset of the game. The humor is very good. Just be aware that as its an RPG your shooting will not be spot on right away and must be leveled up. Also the way the conversations work are not your typical good and evil answers. For this price its well worth it, all it asks is a little time and understanding and youll get on great!
