I am not an MMO person anymore

coultar | Nov. 13, 2011 | Review of Rift - Free Trial

It seems that the five years of WOW have cured me of this particular genre. I tried Rift for a few hours but i just couldn't get into it. The game itself was not bad, it's just that i can't stand the feel of MMOs. Well i can't stand it anymore, because as i have said i did play WOW for quite a long time. The setting itself sounded interesting enough, but it didn't capture me in those first hours. But if you are not yet as cynical as i am about MMOs in general then you could at least give it a try, it costs nothing more than bandwidth and a little bit of your time.

A great game

coultar | Nov. 13, 2011 | Review of Deus Ex: Human Revolution

I was very wary as i first heard about a new Deus Ex game. But not only have they done a great job in making this prequel stay true to the first game, they have also made it a very modern game.

The story is really fascinating, at least until the end, which is a bit weaker than the rest of the game. But overall this does not change that this is a really great game. I think i can say that i greatly enjoyed my time with this game.

The boss battles are widely criticized, but i found the easiest way was to do them quickly and ignore them otherwise.
