Metro

bitterfrost | June 28, 2013 | Review of Metro: Last Light

Great game. I think I liked the first one more, only because it was the first time. The game is far too easy on normal, so I recommend changing it to the hardest possible for a moderate difficulty. The story is compelling stilll, but I feel like Metro 2033 will always have a special place in my heart.

This rich sequel builds on the previous game with new features that don't feel tacky but still add depth. The in-game timer watch is a godsend rather than having to open up the steam overlay.

I only wish they had the option for the conversations you overhear to have subtitles (I liked to play the game in Russian, I felt like it added more depth). Overall the game was great and enjoyable, probably one of my favorite games this year. I just wish the ending was a little bit more satisfying, but what are you going to, the show has to end some day.

Come for the combat stay for the story.

bitterfrost | June 8, 2013 | Review of BioShock Infinite (NA)

Bioshock infinite was one of the best gaming experiences I have to date. Having played System Shock 2, I got bored of the original Bioshock as it is a reskinned game in virtue, only getting about half way through it.

However, this game did not disappoint. The combat mixes it up with an actually useful companion. Your companion throughout the game is charming, and is never a hindrance on you.

The story takes you for a ride and doesn't let go. It is something unique, and shows that video games can be used as a medium for great story telling. The other other game which gripped me so tightly with enjoyable combat and story, was The Darkness II.

Would recommend to any gamer.

This game is fantastic

bitterfrost | June 8, 2013 | Review of Batman Arkham City: Game of the Year

A little more open ended than arkham asylum. That is both a good thing and a bad thing.

The story still feels immersive and compelling, but there is less direction due to the more open world nature of the game.

Overall, I loved it. It was true to the batman ethos while still being very enjoyable to play. You're vulnerable but powerful at the same time.

One of the most enjoyable games I have played.
