Realism at it's bestbFasoX | July 7, 2011 | Review of ARMA II
Having played various FPS'es which all claimed to be "the most realistic" ones, this game totally deserves that title. The introduction into the game is well made, and a specific tension follows you throughout the whole game. Some scenes will make you doubt that you are actually sitting in front of your computer rather than fighting in real life by yourself. The gameplay is aside from some bugs flawless, and the engine does not require a pro-gamer to be played. Although the sounds could be updated, the game still provides hours of fun, and a lot of replayability due to the over-the-top AI. For shooter fans, this is a must-buy!
Bad for a Splinter Cell, good for an Action GamebFasoX | July 7, 2011 | Review of Tom Clancy's Splinter Cell: Conviction
This game provides great graphics, a fast-paced gameplay, and mind-blowing action scenes which will keep you on your seat until you beat the game. That said, I also have to mention that i expected something different from a Splinter Cell game. The old Splinter Cell series concentrated on the stealth factor, where it was sometimes better not to kill several targets. In Splinter Cell Conviction you rather take the other way and kill everybody who gets in your way (well.. not EVERYbody). You do sneak into houses but the ways to go are a tad to obvious for me, since the (awesome looking!) font on every building kind of spoils the way to go.
Just like "Arukardo" said, this is not meant as a rant but rather as a disappoint for the Splinter Cell series. If you're not a huge fan of the old series this game is still worth a play-through (for this price!)
Beats its mobile copybFasoX | July 7, 2011 | Review of Tower Bloxx Deluxe
When I heard about a PC port of Tower Bloxx I did not expect THIS much fun. The concept is easy: stack up an endless amount of floors to create a huge highrise (which even reaches space!). So this is rather a 1-button game, but the level of detail and the colourful sounds just make the game a lot more fun than it actually seems. This is one of the few mobile games which made their way up to a PC port, and it deserves it. In my opinion the price is still rather high, but when on sale this game is worth a try (and more).
Not what I expectedbFasoX | July 7, 2011 | Review of Men of War [Playfire]
This game lets you play with different allies through the World War II, which has been seen in other games more than once. For this reason, this game rather gets a lower position in the WWII games list. The gameplay is rather slow as you continue through the different levels. In my opinion the controls on a keyboard are a bit weird, but maybe I am just used to other games. My suggestion: If you like war games (shooters) in general, this is a possible buy for you. If you are not really interested, save your money.
Great retro gamebFasoX | July 7, 2011 | Review of VVVVVV
This game is suitable for everyone who loves retro gaming. Because of that, the game is made in a quite easy way, without disregarding entertainment. The blocky graphics, assisted by the funky 8-bit music is a single reason to get this game. Due to the game being retro, the difficulty level raises to an almost-unbeatable level. This makes it sure that the play time gets MUCH longer than expected. Not like other games, this one motivates you to get the 100%.
Successful FusionbFasoX | July 7, 2011 | Review of Sanctum
This Game is a display of what new genres are still undiscovered. When I heard about a Tower Defense First Person Shooter I thought it would fail, but even playing the demo to Sanctum proved me otherwise. Basically this game takes all the fun from a Tower Defense game, while you still play it as a FPS. You run around shooting different types of enemies, while erecting various towers between the waves of enemies. The amount of weapons is also very high, so it is possible to say that this game has a BIG replayability rate, and for the prize it is a must-have in every steam-library.
