Fantastic!

cantIntoCode | April 30, 2013 | Review of Tomb Raider Overflow

Tomb Raider is one of my favourite releases so far. The game is has some refreshing gameplay and stunning visuals. I was a bit skeptical at first however as a Tomb Raider fan this game has provided gameplay I expected from the series. As you progress through the game your arsenal improves continuously allowing you to take out enemies with brute force or rather take the stealthy route. The only thing I did not care for much are the quick time events.

Fantastic game, would recommend to any Tomb Raider fan!

Brilliant game, but has it's bugs!

cantIntoCode | Dec. 28, 2012 | Review of Chivalry: Medieval Warfare PRE

Chivalry is a game entirely different from anything you've played before. After seeing all the good reviews and content going around YouTube I thought I'd give this game a go and I'm more than happy with my purchase.

Chivalry breathes new light into the gaming scene and brings something new to the table. The gameplay mechanics are brilliant, it takes a carefully timed attack to successfully kill your opponent. You use right click to block, click click to slash, scroll wheel up to stab and down for a overhead attack. Learning to block your enemies attack every time is going to take a lot of practice, you have to mouse the crosshair to the tip of your enemies weapon as they strike you (and you will/could have multiple enemies attacking you at once). The combat system has been well thought through and every kill you get is very rewarding. There is also an archery class, however is leaves very much to be desired because the arrows never seem to go where you would like them to go and before you can manage to kill someone you will either run out of arrows or someone else will kill you.

The game does have it's bugs, theres a few that I find really bothersome. When you open the server window to connect to a match, every other time no servers will appear and you will either need to restart the game, or restart your computer(this also happens with all my friends that play Chivalry) and occasionally when your in a game you will not respawn which is not due to lag as before you died the gameplay was fine.

Overall I would recommend this game to anyone who likes a new challenge and a different type of game. It's does take some time to get used to but once you've nailed it Chivalry is loads of fun!
