A Very Good Thriller TitleTrainRain | Jan. 4, 2015 | Review of Alan Wake
Alan Wake is not necessarily a very frightening horror game, but it sure has its moments. The game focuses little on jump scares and gore like many of the other horror games out there, which is good. In spite of this; the game manages to be quite scary at times, as it is a psychological thriller with a fantastic story and interesting plot turns. The game also delivers a very good twin peaks-like atmosphere and one of the best soundtracks I've ever heard in a game. This game is truly worth the time and the money!
Story Telling At Its Finest!TrainRain | Nov. 22, 2013 | Review of The Walking Dead
I'm no fan of point and click adventures, neither am I a fan of the Walking Dead series, but this game is still one of the best games I own. Never before have I played such an emotional game where you actually feel involved in the story, it is so well written and executed. Your actions really affects the game in more or less dramatic ways, something that makes decisions even harder and more emotional.
A zombie apocalyptic story at its finest!
Art!TrainRain | Nov. 22, 2013 | Review of Mirror's Edge (EU)
A great game that delivers tons of replay-ability! One of the few games that has actually gotten me to wanting to beat my former high scores and try to finish a route as fast as possible.
Even today it looks like a masterpiece and I truly believe that this game is a prime example to why games are art. The soundtrack, the gameplay and of course the amazing level designs and graphics makes one of the more memorable gaming experiences I've ever had.
Something Different, But Excellent!TrainRain | Nov. 22, 2013 | Review of Alan Wake
The story in Alan Wake is amazingly good and creepy! While more and more "horror" games focuses on being gory and somewhat survival-ish Alan Wake takes a different approach and delivers an impressive story and great characters, and does so quite flawlessly. Keep in mind that it is not a scary in the sense that you will jump out of you chair screaming due to Alan Wake being a psychological horror game, but it still scary in its own way.
It delivers an amazing story, an excellent atmosphere and the soundtrack of the game is of one of the best ones I've ever heard.
