A good step forward for stealth games

donut_palmtree | May 28, 2013 | Review of Hitman: Absolution

With it's superfluous design, cunning stealth action and intriguing story, Hitman: Absolution is definitely a top runner in my 2012 GOTY list. The long story short review is here.

The good: -The story is amazing -The graphics are fantastic on PC -Interesting puzzle additions -A great new entry into the franchise -Good for people hoping to enter the franchise

The bad: -Janky stealth -Massive download size -Lots of bugs

In conclusion, Hitman: Absolution is a great, albeit flawed entry into the series. I would recommend it to anyone that is a fan of the stealth genre, aslong as they can deal with a few minor glitches.

New and refreshing

donut_palmtree | May 4, 2013 | Review of Metro 2033 PRE

Metro 2033 might seem like just another generic FPS, but it is more than meets the eye. It has survival elements, shooting elements and even a little bit of survival horror mixed in for good measure. The story is based on the book of the same name and translates quite well to videogames with an intriguing moral choice system. The soundtrack is good but it's nothing worth writing home about. The DX 11 implementation is kind of fantastic and makes the game look better than most games on the market at the time of it's release. Great game, definitely worth a buy.
