Not the best one in the series, though still enjoyable

cremvursti | July 26, 2013 | Review of Hitman: Absolution

IO Interactive chose a more action-ish route for this game, in spite of it's legacy. One would think they're trying to get it closer to the type of game Kane&Lynch is. Where until now, 47 had a series of contracts, missions where he was placed on a map, given a task and set loose, now almost all missions seem to take you on a specific route, like you're playing your typical shooter where the developer guides you step by step. Now, "it's personal"... well damn this, I don't want a bald, cold-blooded assassin to turn into the main character of a soap opera show.

The game isn't that bad, but it ain't a Hitman game anymore. Not like it used to be. If you haven't played any of the previous games and want to jump straight to the best one, Blood Money is the one you want to try out.

Fun, even though it gets repetitive

cremvursti | July 25, 2013 | Review of Hell Yeah! Wrath of the Dead Rabbit

A decent, whacky platformer with a lot of tongue-in-cheek humour. The mini-games that trigger at each of the 100 mini-bosses kills are pretty fun, tough they start repeating themselves quite quickly. All in all, Hell Yeah! is a good way to spend some of your spare time without having to squeeze your brain too hard.

Decent if you liked the Grotesque Tactics series

cremvursti | July 12, 2013 | Review of Holy Avatar Vs Maidens of the Dead

Holy Avatar Vs Maidens of the Dead is a follow-up to the two games in the Grotesque Tactics series, Evil Heroes and Dungeons and Donuts. Though lacklustre in gameplay sometimes, with dialogue bugs and weird pathfinding, the game's dry humour makes the experience pleasurable for those who appreciate this kind of humour. A lot of references to pop culture will certainly make you smile while playing it. Decent at it's price.

Fear of the dark!

cremvursti | July 12, 2013 | Review of Don't Starve

Don't Starve is a sandbox survival experience in which the goal is to survive in a world that slowly drains your insanity. The fact that once you die, it's pretty much it will make you be on the lookout for every possible danger. Also, you'll soon find out that you ain't that tough man from the regular games of these days; dying will occur quick, without any notice. There are a million ways you can die and a million ways you can survive in this game (the randomly generated world contributes a lot to this) and this is what will, ultimately, make you come back again to it or not: the fact that you are or aren't enjoying a game where you'll die a lot.

Enjoyable with friends

cremvursti | July 12, 2013 | Review of Borderlands

The original Borderlands set a landmark in Co-op FPS-RPG genre back in 2009, when it was released. Gearbox really nailed this one, creating a vivid world where you and up to 3 other friends can unleash hell upon the poor creatures that inhabit Pandora. You'll kill bandits, monsters and midget bandits. You'll fall in love with Clap-Trap. You'll get to experience some of the over 17 milion (!!) randomly generated weapons. You'll have fun. What could you possibly want more?

More of the same

cremvursti | July 12, 2013 | Review of Dead Island Riptide dns

Dead Island: Riptide, for me, is just a DLC for the original game. There haven't been any changes regarding the lacklustre handling of the guns, the level scaling of the zombies... it's all there. Sure, you get a new island to play and all, but you'd expect more from this for the price it sells. If you invested a lot of hours in the original Dead Island and found yourself craving for more, then buy this game at a discount of at least 50%. If you haven't tried out the first one, better start with it if you want to see how it is. You'll find in at a very convenient price and you'll be able to tell if you really want to play the follow-up that Riptide is.

A great game with not enough players

cremvursti | July 12, 2013 | Review of Forge

For those of you who like the competitiveness side of online games, this is for you. As it has been said before, it is comparable to the WoW PvP or GW2 PvP, only withouth the race for equipment. Rather, it has a very unique level advancing system that will keep you coming again for one more match. It feels very dynamic thanks to the movement system, which gives you a unique sense of reward for every kill you make. Sadly, it suffers from the fact that few people actually play it, despite the fact that it went on sale and was featured in a bundle, at a very low price. And when you ain't got nobody to play it with, well... the game's pretty much useless.

Play it with a partner!

cremvursti | July 12, 2013 | Review of Dungeonland

Dungeonland is a wacky dungeon crawler that focuses on co-op mechanics and funny one-liners. Basically, on one side there's this team of three heroes that want to break in the castle and loot dem gold chests, and on the other side there's this evil mastermind that tries to stop them at all costs. The world has a certain charm to it that will make you come back time and time again, alongside your buddies, even though the game gets repetitive after a while. Also, the dungeon maestro mode, where one player gets to be that evil mastermind is a lot of fun, especially when played with friends. All in all, I played this with my girlfriend, played it with my metal-fan friend that studies Viking culture and with my 4th grade brother and we had fun.

Entertaining in short bursts

cremvursti | July 12, 2013 | Review of Shoot Many Robots

In Shoot Many Robots, you get the chance to... well, the title says it all. It is a fun game, as long as you play it in short sessions (no more than an hour). Also, it's more pleasurable when you play it in co-op. The customization part keeps your interest alive along the missions, as you'll strive to get all those wacky hats, backpacks and whatnot. All in all, it's a worthy game, even more if you find it discounted, when the price is just dirt cheap for what it offers.
