Wipe away that Invisible War bad taste in your mouth

duffman03 | Nov. 19, 2013 | Review of Deus Ex: Human Revolution Augmented Edition

Invisible War, what Invisible War? This is the Deus Ex we all wanted. Stealth mechanics are great, and having the option to do a full blown psychopathic killer or a silent invisible ninja throughout most of the game (excluding boss battles) is really great. In all reality though, most of the time silent ninja turns into psychopathic killer as soon as you get detected. So you either have to be really careful and stealthy, or just enjoy it and murder everyone. Great looking game, awesome story, and the boss battles are bearable at best. Don't let them turn you off of this game though, play it now!

Beautiful game

duffman03 | Nov. 19, 2013 | Review of BioShock Infinite (NA)

The gameplay is pretty similar to the other Bioshock games, but holy cow is this game filled with eye candy. Every scene is a sweeping vista, which I guess you can pull off when you have a city in the sky. Some neat new gameplay mechanics with the skyrails, and having an interesting female companion is always a good thing (as Half-Life 2 has shown us) and helps a lot with immersing you in the world and story. Definitely more so that just being the typical silent protagonist, she helps a lot with helping the world come alive.

Great game! If you liked the previous Bioshock games, this is the best one yet.
