Fight for your sanctuaryWolfear | Feb. 9, 2013 | Review of Sanctum
Aliens invade your planet or something like that. the story is not really important or interesting, However it does allow you to blast away aliens with guns, always a plus in my book. The strategy of placing your turrets and where to aim your firepower becomes steadily more interisting with more types of aliens. Strategies that worked the level before suddenly don't work anymore, and you'll have to change. It stays interesting. It can only become better with friends, though not as fun with strangers. After playing it through you probably won't play it a lot anymore. All in all not abad game.
Gotta love those thingsWolfear | Feb. 9, 2013 | Review of World of Goo
This is one of the first indie games, that made the indie market popular. You would think it is good, or maybe just a hype? Nah, it's good. the puzzles are challenging but not hard. The balls of goo are really cute, and you'll want to save them all and not let them dissapear with a "plop". The only setback is the length, but for the price it is now, it might not be worth it for you. On sale however, it is a must have.
Rayman is back, a bit different but still awesome.Wolfear | Nov. 24, 2012 | Review of Rayman Origins
Rayman returns, and like many new oldies, he also went back to 2d. The game itself just look silly, it doesn't take itself seriously, and it works beautifully. Playing together is incredibly fun, racing to the other side just the other can survive or punching them in the enemy, it just works magnificently. If you just want to play the game without collectibles, it is quite easy until the latter levels, The last levels and actually getting everything, is hard and you need to do everything perfectly. Well done Ubisoft in bringing Rayman back
Sonic is back, or not.....Wolfear | Nov. 24, 2012 | Review of Sonic the Hedgehog 4: Episode I
Sonic is back in 2d, just like everyone wanted, except it is not what it used to be. They tried to make a 2.5d variant of the old graphics. They failed. However if it played as a sonic game, I wouldn't complain. however, It doesn;t feel like a sonic game. No speed, you jump weird, it just feels bad. They tried but failed. Thankfully we now have Sonic Generations. (buy that if you want a the feel of a good sonic game)
Nice idea, but not as dlcWolfear | June 2, 2012 | Review of Sonic Generations - Casino Nights Pinball DLC
Sonic generations is an awesome game, and what do they make as dlc? A pinball machine. As dlc I'm a bit dissapointed in sega but I have to admit, it's quite addicting. It plays real smoothly and looks gorgeous. Sadly enough there's not much difference between modern and classic sonic. If you have sonic generations and this too, instead of that cup of coffee or that that sandwich you were going to take tomorrow, you'll enjoy this for a lot longer.
Well done SegaWolfear | June 2, 2012 | Review of Sonic CD
Sega did a great job porting this game. It has all the usual things in the menu it needs and more. You can choose between the Japanese and American soundtrack which is a really nice thing they did. You can also change the way the game looks between sharp smooth and nostalgic, which is a nice touch. The gameplay itself is like the good ol' sonic games with a twist, because it's less based on speed but more on platforming. The soundtrack is like a bit of a mix with the old sonic and the new sonic which means, you'll like it or you won't. If you liked the old sonic this is a definite buy.
A simple addictive gameWolfear | Aug. 5, 2011 | Review of VVVVVV
A simple but hard game. But that is what makes it so much fun, because you'll want to end it and after that keep going on. The graphics are great, old school style, and with music that will stay in your head for a long time. Now with extra levels made by other gamedevelopers, like notch, known from minecraft. And a level editor to make your own levels, wich can be quite fun
Great game, but only with friendsWolfear | June 11, 2011 | Review of Borderlands
Borderlands is a fps with a few rpg influences. You kill stuff, you get exp. and you get skillpoints. You can use those skillpoints for skills, but you wont notice it really with playing, it stays just shooting. But the greatest thing about the game is the Multiplayer, if you have friends to play it with, because then it stays a lot of fun. Another great thing is the humor, especially ind the dlc's. So if you want to shoot stuff with friends and quitea lot of humor, this is your game
Thievery, Magic and ChivarlyWolfear | April 13, 2011 | Review of Trine
In Trine you play as a thief a mage and a knight, each character a whole new way of playing, you have the thief for your platforming, the mage for you psysics based puzzles and last but not least the knight for your fighting. Put these three together plus a bit of humor, and there you have it, one real gem of a game.
Possibly the best music game around.Wolfear | April 9, 2011 | Review of Beat Hazard
Beat Hazard is a simple game, You strenght enemies and bosses come and go with you own music. And this simplicity is what makes the game so great. The visuals aren'r so good, on first look that is. But when you play the game, especially on higher difficulties, you'll see the great light effects the game gives when you shoot more and more of the spaceships. (And if you just want the light effects without shooting, they also made a great visualiser in game). So if you want a game on wich you can shoot spaceships on you own music, with great light effects. Then this is your game.
