A fresh, beautiful retro tasted platformer..XGpredator | Nov. 28, 2013 | Review of Giana Sisters: Twisted Dreams – Rise of the Owlverlord
The great Giana Sisters: Twisted Dreams-Rise of the Owlverlord should delight everyone. Those who played the original will return in all directions and in all levels of difficulty six courses and the boss (a giant owl both pirate and ninja). Those who have not yet established relationships with new Giana discover meanwhile a charming universe with an achievement and a lovely soundtrack and a gameplay based on the Twist, very refreshing. A nice little challenge for less than 5$ that clearly deserves a good note ... and, hopefully, the best hopes for a future second episode!
Complete but complex ..XGpredator | Nov. 25, 2013 | Review of Europa Universalis IV
Europa Universalis IV is undeniably very good. There are many historical events, the possibilities are immense and replayability. We take great pleasure to rewrite history. The game is mainly intended for connoisseurs of the genre or game studio, even beginners will find their account that their learning will be slowed by the many bugs tutorials. This is also the point and the problems of locations that tarnish the picture of an exemplary embodiment yet of the rest. It is hoped that these concerns will be quickly corrected though they taint little playability of the games, but in all cases, they are breaking the final mark of at least one point.
Badger's Little Helper..XGpredator | Nov. 25, 2013 | Review of Shelter
Despite his pitch that seems out of the parody Twitter account PeterMolydeux, the idea of embody an animal and create a virtual link is not bad, on the contrary. In practice, however, minimalism gameplay eventually cause real trouble and not particularly Shelter manages to create that famous sense of involvement. There has to be a sense of unfinished business in Shelter, a feeling that things were not pushed through. Remains an experimental aspect that will seduce the most curious.
An artistic success..XGpredator | Nov. 25, 2013 | Review of FINAL FANTASY XIV: A Realm Reborn
Final Fantasy XIV : A Realm Reborn is a title that has much to tell . Rarely will a MMORPG possessed such a strong storyline while providing such freedom to the player. As adapted to the general public and enthusiasts of the genre, it offers an impressive content and the world seems still open to players once the maximum level attained. To play all classes with a single character while being able to slightly mix the skills provides opportunities for customization undeniable. However, the soul of the game features a very long time to grow up and spent his class (or set up a new ) hours could have been more interesting with fresh ideas for the combat system or for quests outside bodies . Anyway , A Realm Reborn has really enjoyed a lot of work on the part of its designers and it shows in each compartment in. With a little patience , there is little chance that you regret buying.
A bit coherent balancing..XGpredator | Nov. 25, 2013 | Review of Alien Rage Unlimited
Alien Rage is not a bad game, very funny some times thanks to the many winks that exist in the game, CI Games' FPS will, for its low price, you give you some enjoyable moments. But the difficulty wrongly calibrated, the monotony of gameplay as environment, short lifetime and the classicism of its multiplayer. Alien Rage is not a success, but not a total failure either. You decide if you want to invest in a not unpleasant and uninhibited adventure, that you'll quickly forget after you finish it.
Back to the past, with the F1 legends..XGpredator | Nov. 23, 2013 | Review of F1 2013
Despite Classics mode well done but unfortunately poorer than expected, F1 2013 should seduce fans with his increasingly subtle and realistic gameplay. Physics has been revised to stick a little better the behavior of Forms 1 while offering smoother and more credible races. If this does not upset the situation and may even go unnoticed for a neophyte, there is however what the investment adviser to the fans of the series.
Even more realistic animations..XGpredator | Nov. 23, 2013 | Review of NBA 2K14
NBA 2k14 is clearly not the richest in news of the series, but it remains an interesting title with its new animations that contribute to the more fluid and realistic gameplay. The arrival of Euroleague teams is also significant, but it is a pity not to use them during the fast parts. However, the whole is advisable to fans as curious pending next-gen versions still hoped for a more generous coat.
Tactical Football Action..XGpredator | Nov. 23, 2013 | Review of Football Manager 2014
The country of football simulations, Football Manager is still king. In addition to the settings into the order detail, we can greet the arrival of financial fair play or the care given to the tactical interface. But this episode is a bit stingy in real news than its predecessor, it is difficult to recommend a player already have the previous game and that the update is not effective for of paramount importance. But if you enjoy challenging experience provided by the title, it is obvious that you will find something to spend long sleepless nights along with your coffee on Football Manager 2014.
Naval battles revised..XGpredator | Nov. 23, 2013 | Review of Assassin’s Creed® IV Black Flag™
Despite some good ideas, Assassin's Creed 4: Black Flag is certainly not the best game in the series. First his screenplay disappoints, as its gameplay begins to age seriously. The system of free run, especially, it does not at all suite to environments that has skimpy pirate ships, while the AI guards are less easy to swallow. Still, given the atmosphere is just great, the universe is exciting to explore and vast, the freedom offered to the player is a total immersion that is intoxicating and the multiplayer is richer than ever. In short, it is a game full of nuances, which still deserves a look, especially if you're a fan of the series or the world of piracy.
Be the king of heists..XGpredator | Nov. 22, 2013 | Review of Payday 2
PayDay 2 is a bomb. Like a true pro crime, you can prepare your breaks for long minutes with your friends to play stealthy and never being spotted. Here you are with a stealth game. However, when this does to the opposite, you're struggling with the onslaught of special forces. Here you are with an action game. Adding randomness, contingencies, the ability to block or continue depending on your choice, the diversity of levels, lots of accessories or specializations PayDay 2 has everything you ask a blockbuster. .. especially for only 30$, Indeed the best Multi-player games of this year.
An aesthetic beauty..XGpredator | Nov. 22, 2013 | Review of Castlevania: Lords of Shadow Ultimate Edition
If the PC version of Lords of Shadow made almost three years to reach us, all worth it! Technically most successful and enjoying all the qualities of the original work, this version so proves a delicacy that has well stood the test of time. Certainly, it is better to opt for a pad to enjoy it but if that does not put you off and you are a fan of the genre, you can not miss it.
A wonderful tale that ends too soon..XGpredator | Nov. 22, 2013 | Review of Brothers: A Tale of Two Sons
Like the melodramatic tales? You're not afraid to experiment with new types of gameplay? Brothers: A Tale of Two Sons is for you. Indeed, it presents a unique but effective which is totally at the service of the narrative handling. Prepare to dive into a wonderful world where you have trouble getting out. This is indeed the main defect in the title, we would have liked this adventure lasts a little longer to continue to enjoy it.
An engine that makes wonders and a rich level design..XGpredator | Nov. 22, 2013 | Review of Rayman Legends
Rayman Legends is a worthy successor to Origins. More beautiful, richer, it displays a strong and effective gameplay, although phases with Murphy are sometimes poorly integrated and may put off some players. An unforgettable experience, to live alone or with others. Unless you are totally resistant to the Rayman universe, you can buy this masterpiece gaming eyes closed.
In the attack!XGpredator | Nov. 22, 2013 | Review of Total War: Rome II
The Creative Assembly has once again booked strong surprises for fans for this Rome Total War 2. Campaigns are both more interesting, richer and deeper than in previous games while battles endow very interesting strategic elements. Pity that the form was not as refined as the background without some untimely crashes. No doubt the patches will fix these problems, but for now, it is unfortunately impossible not to punish these recurring technical problems.
Paint'n clickXGpredator | Nov. 22, 2013 | Review of Memoria
With Memoria, Daedalic sign a series of already mastered friendly Chains of Satinav. In addition to its graphic style that crosses genuine hand-made paintings, especially Memoria enchants the player by telling him a fantastic and touching tale, despite starting a bit longish. A beautiful story served by clever puzzles despite some wanderings scattered here and there. It is regrettable that the game makes totally ignore the language of Molière, a point will be prohibitive for many potential buyers.
A good dose of humor..XGpredator | Nov. 22, 2013 | Review of Goodbye Deponia
Goodbye Deponia takes things where Chaos on Deponia had left. Always so nice and always funny, this third installment in the series will make you live a new wacky adventure in a world particularly well and inspired. Deeply rooted in the tradition of old point'n click, Goodbye Deponia could repel the largest public because of the strangeness of some riddles and its very old-school realization. Others will meanwhile delighted to find Rufus and his band of broken arms for a new symbolic gesture. Goodbye and thank you Deponia Daedalic for this whole adventure.
Right in the Melee..XGpredator | Nov. 22, 2013 | Review of XCOM: Enemy Within
More vicious, more strategic, more stressful, more clever than its predecessor, XCOM: Enemy Within gives a great sweep to the already very successful XCOM: Enemy Unknown by introducing elements of gameplay that tough tactics of a game that the was already tremendously. Sure, they blame the failure to correct defects in the original game or the lack of a new campaign, but if you're a fan of the license, it is certain that the extension will allow you to rediscover in a new light as such particularly time, which is now enriched with a very consistent content.
Back to Basics..XGpredator | Nov. 22, 2013 | Review of BioShock Infinite: Burial at Sea Episode 1
The adventure is involved at the beginning and the end but suffers a good time not necessarily exciting goals serving only on traversing a succession of rooms inhabited by enemies. Sure, the gameplay is still enjoyable and achievement, whether graphics or sound, is always of great quality. The apocalyptic turn of Rapture is not yet visible and the episode deserved maybe more carefully staging. Remains whether the second part will raise the level.
Contrasting game..XGpredator | Nov. 22, 2013 | Review of Contrast
Contrast is more it describes itself . Although several strengths do various problems, the overall feeling is very positive. It is also for this we regret that lifetime is so short. Nevertheless, although we sometimes feel the impression that the universe is a little underused, we will delight in these subtle references to cinema of the 20s, the exquisite artistic touch and especially a concept well understood and controlled with puzzles cleverly thoughts.
Winks and exploration..XGpredator | Nov. 11, 2013 | Review of Anodyne
Anodyne offers an adventure which is both contemplative and packed with eye to the world of video game winks. Nonlinear and not off-putting, growth holds many surprises. Just blame it on being too easy, few bosses, and the short lifetime, but it still have a good side, such as the he pleasant and varied music and the cards collection, for 9$, it's worth it.
Beautiful, but not very original..XGpredator | Nov. 11, 2013 | Review of Final Exam
Mighty Rocket Studio did i good job for a 'first game'. Final Exam is indeed very classic and far from perfect single player, but it will delight fans of the genre through his exemplary playability . If you have friends willing to join you in the adventure, there is no doubt that you will spend a few pleasant evenings. Otherwise, you gotta go above the low originality and flat scenario to enjoy this adventure steeped in the typical teen-humor movies.
Well thought, badly madeXGpredator | Nov. 4, 2013 | Review of Nuclear Dawn
If there is something that should never be set aside by the developers of a multiplayer game, it's balancing. Unfortunately, despite its qualities, Nuclear Dawn fishes on this important point. It might not be a prefect game, but it's still a good idea combining FPS and RTS together, but the idea of only one guy who can build, that ruins it in some cases. InterWave laso failed into advertising, unfortunately, it's hard to find full servers, like in cod, bf, csgo.. Although, some nice fans made groups and set up events, you may get some rounds with some players.. or not. Or you can still play with bots, if you like bots. At that price, i think it's worth a try.
ALL NEW KIND OF MASTERPIECEXGpredator | Nov. 4, 2013 | Review of Sleeping Dogs Digital Edition
If you haven't played Sleeping Dogs, really, you missing the best game of 2012, still played till now.
United Front's game is a Original GTA-like, which will take you in an amazing journey into the heart of the exciting world of Hong Kong Triads. It has one of the most remarkable, story, gameplay, and most importantly.. fighting system, maybe some AI glitches, but i'm sure all the fans of the genre will not regret playing this game, it's worth the price, so go grab it.
