Fun

eareboucas | May 2, 2013 | Review of Hitman: Absolution

Absolution is a fantastic addition to the series. It builds upon what made the previous Hitman games great and raises the bar even higher. There's less clutter to deal with on your way to assassinating fools and thanks to how 47 is more phyisical in this game, stealth is even more fun this time around. Strongly recommended.

Binary decision

eareboucas | May 2, 2013 | Review of Binary Domain

Binary Domain is a textbook case of mixed feelings regarding a game. On one hand, it's derivative and has some of the worst teammate AI I've ever seen. On the other, its story is surprisingly interesting and deep, plus shooting robots in this game is just plain fun. If you can forgive a game that has some VERY aggravating spots, give this a go... if you find it on sale.

Eh.

eareboucas | May 2, 2013 | Review of Darksiders II

Darksiders II is a somewhat barebone sequel to a great game. Even though there's a lot more to explore, much of the traversing is boring and stretched out for the sake of making the game seem way longer than it should. Most of the dungeons are fun but the ones that aren't eally bog down the pace. This plays much like the original and the addition of the loot drops does very little to keep you playing besides making Death look cool. Unfortunately, the PC version of Darksiders II is extemely buggy and locks up frequently, to the point of making some of the DLC completely unplayable. I wouldn't recommend this version of the game, unless you can get it on a good sale.

Fun at the strip

eareboucas | May 2, 2013 | Review of Dead Rising 2

Dead Rising 2 is one of the most entertaining games ever, if you can tolerate the first few hours, leveling up the main character until he is more capable. Building weapon combos is much easier than it sounds and makes for most of the fun in this game. That, coupled with some extremely silly scenarios, boss fights and terrible voice acting, is what makes this game such a blast. Bet high or don't bet at all!

To infinity and beyond

eareboucas | May 2, 2013 | Review of BioShock Infinite Post

If you are a fan of epic videogame stories, Bioshock Infinite should be on the top of your "to play" list. Add to that an insanely good sense of art direction and the ridiculously awesome (but at the same time disturbing) world of Columbia, which can easily absorb you for hours. This game rivals the previous entries in the series in terms of quality, although I did find the combat scenarios a little lacking and not very exciting. But as a whole, Infinite is an incredible achievement that I'd easily recommend to anyone.
