Simply Amazing

andrealbu | Dec. 30, 2013 | Review of Bioshock Infinite

Bioshock Infinite brings to life a new story with stunning first class characters and actors that quickly empathize with anyone who plays it. The bioshock series were never much about gameplay or visuals and neither is this one. Instead it delivers a bunch of doubts, secrecy and feelings that captures the attention of any player. Elizabeth plays a central role in the game and its amazing to see her evolution over the course of it. The first hour of game (mainly introduction) and the last one were some of the best "moments" I experienced playing a game.

Back to a beautiful world

andrealbu | Dec. 22, 2013 | Review of BioShock® 2

After the greatness of the original Bioshock comes this sequel telling a whole new story about Rapture and its people. Bioshock 2 lives to expectations and unravels new perspectives. It feels great playing as a Big Daddy and as a little sister, though the latter may feel very mechanical. The FPS experience is as solid as never before and the gameplay for me is better than the original. The variety of weapons, both old and new ones only improves the game. The adding of a multiplayer mode is a good feature though its incomparably worse than the singleplayer campaign. The story, just as the original, is the better part of this experience, full of dark drama and twists again.

A Jewel

andrealbu | Dec. 20, 2013 | Review of BioShock

Bioshock is a must have game and an abnormal FPS, by its added elements of RPG and by its dark, inspiring and twisted story. The mechanics are fluid and converge to a solid gameplay. The graphics are great for a 2007 game and help you to integrate and understand the world that surrounds you. The gunplay is ok, like any other average shooter.

General improvement though with new flaws

andrealbu | July 7, 2013 | Review of Poker Night 2

This new Poker Night brings new characters to the picture, though it remains it's proper fun. Brock Samson, Sam, Ash Williams, Claptrap and GLaDOS offer truly memorable moments, however most of them get more repetitive than in the first game.

Steam achievements are easier (for example straight flush and four of a kind aren't anymore required and bounty trophies aren't won for kicking a player out but for winning a tournament).

Difficulty levels options were also erased though this isn't a problem regarding to the gameplay. Furthermore, there are many items unlockable for Borderlands 2 and Team Fortress 2.

Best tennis game around

andrealbu | July 3, 2013 | Review of Virtua Tennis 4

Though it lacks some proper ajustments there isn't simply better a game of tennis to play in your pc.Gameplay is solid and fluid, the graphics are outstanding and it's career mode easily drains you for a while. The mini-games presented are fun to play particularly with some friends around. The main problem of this game is that it gets boring quite easily after you spent some time on it.
