been waiting for my chance

comedychris | Sept. 3, 2013 | Review of Total War: Rome II PRE

finally i can use strategy, tactics and actual historical context to win battles, this game is so realistic in the way that, various types, weakness's and water/land troops help each other out and have an effect on battles with land mass etc, not just all flat, the most people in the army wins, its much more complex in the best possible way... graphics are stunning if you can play them and soundtrack is so elegant, fantastic game,, the actual sequel to rome total war... epic!!!!!!

not bad but trying to mix games/genres doesnt work 100%

comedychris | Aug. 23, 2013 | Review of The Bureau: XCOM Declassified

not bad but trying to mix games/genres doesn't work 100%, ok so the 3rd person action and shooting is fun, the class based combat, and variety of ways to win a lvl instead of simply running and gunning is a fresh take on modern games, that same strategy that wins me over also is a downfall, the detail and complexity is no where near xcom EU and because of that i feel a new game of a franchise should be better not worse.. a good game but if you can, get the previous title... unless you like gun play then this is for you. :D

like number 1 but better.. so much better

comedychris | Aug. 22, 2013 | Review of Borderlands 2

the choices, you make with leveling can make you a tank/dps build/mix etc no 1 player is the same and can look and play differently, my fav class is the sniper build long range and away from the fight... why be in danger right... the game rewards time and leveling up feels worthy of the exp, the guns are so varied and enemy's never get boring as the writing is 1st class... humour, shooting and leveling up.. yes please...

comedychris | Aug. 22, 2013 | Review of Cloudberry Kingdom

this game is just intense, its not so much hard because after a certain amount of time on each level you can easily complete it, it's just to bad that 50 hours before that point you get so angry and rage quit.. the game has hardcore gameplay that reward clever thinking and good timing not afk or repetitive playing a nice change from easy games but a little to hard maybe...?

game is 10/10

comedychris | Aug. 21, 2013 | Review of EVE Online - 14 Day Free Trial

some people will hate the info,data on screen some will love more in depth player decisions and some will simply be to confused and not try the game... the game is hard, but after 3 days i was on my way to understanding all basics... its absolutely massive and anyone who has ever complained about short game-play has to try it... the choices, the self made story, ships, planets, etc i don't know how to recommend this game enough, simple as that... its 10+ years old.. would a game thats awe-full survivve that long... i dont think so. try the trial and find out.. :)

Hard but worth it

comedychris | Aug. 21, 2013 | Review of Don't Starve

ok im no expert, my final and best day is 19... not good at all really... this game starts with you trying to find would to fend of the darkness with fire, gathering food so you literally "dont starve" and weapons to fight the creatures of the world, the learning curve is there but not that hard to grasp, note " once you die all progress is gone" a punishing yet hardcore game that will keep you on tenterhooks for many hours.. if you can survive....

lemmings/worms little big planet

comedychris | Aug. 21, 2013 | Review of Eets

its very much like lemmings/worms / indie styled animation, with social/community aspect like little big planet and that fantastic, adds to the replay-ability and fun notion that you are involved in the creation or someones game.. :D who says games need to be AAA mass games this is a keeper :D

Better than what i and others thought

comedychris | Aug. 19, 2013 | Review of Max Payne 3

i played this expecting a shooting game, with cool slow mo, awesome sounds and a 3rd person action game i could enjoy for 10+ hours... what i got was all of that and so much more... the storytelling in this game is stunning to the point of literally stopping me playing and thinking about it... a lot of people have complained about stopping gameplay for videos, cgi and story elements, max payne is built upon tragic stories and epic revenge/redemption the story is a huge selling point and the movie style game-play with the fun and sometimes challengeing battles is an awesome combo... thanks rockstar...

as good as i thought it would be

comedychris | Aug. 15, 2013 | Review of Battlefield 3

i have a mid-high end pc, and as such play with max specs and high settings, the graphics are stunning, each gun is 150x more realistic and impressive simply to look at than from a game even 5 years ago... the multiplayer is much less linear than the evil call of duty that fights with BF for supremacy and in my opinion, more unique, maps are bigger, character customization is much bigger + better and community is so much more mature, the single player campaign isn't anything new.. bad guys come you stop em etc but... good for an extra bonus when the 500+ hours of multiplayer are done :D

Can't deny the fun....

comedychris | Aug. 15, 2013 | Review of The Sims 3

many people will compare this game to the likes of minecraft and animal crossing etc the likes of, not having specific objectives... to some that is boring or pointless, but i have played sims 1 and 2 and now 3 and i can honestly say that, the customization, the colorful "both literal and figurative" nature of the world and characters is undeniably amazing, it makes cleaning with a animated being, who speaks gibberish not only a fun game to play but.. something i can sit at for several hours... the choices, relationships and options in this game are fantastic and would advise anyone to try it now!
