A Decent Gamefortunateandy | Aug. 18, 2013 | Review of Dishonored
Dishonored is like a blend between Half Life 2, Thief, and Deus Ex Human Revolution. It's quite innovative with a good background story. The DLCs are semi-short but adds a nice extension to the story, but the DLCs are not exactly congruent with the main plot line, but nevertheless adds a fair amount of gameplay to the entire game. I had fun with the various ways to execute a mission and the pacing, but the game does feel a bit short in length. One could say your options are limited and the path to a mission might be too linear. This game has potential and anyone who liked the Thief series and Deus Ex Human Revolution has the most chance of liking this game.
A Worthy Enough Sequelfortunateandy | Aug. 14, 2013 | Review of Company of Heroes 2
I enjoy playing this game and it alleviates my boredom whenever my internet connection is not crappy. Some initial bugs in the beginning which are persistent but are ignorable. The gameplay is exactly the same with the first Company of Heroes with very minor changes that are beneficiary and/or a minor annoyance at the same time. This lets me play the game smoothly with the same mindset as the first Company of Heroes while the new features aren't hard to learn.
While I still enjoy playing the multiplayer from time to time, I find the game to be also lacking as a major sequel. Company of Heroes 2 feels more like an expansion than a true sequel. The campaign is fairly short with obvious large gaps between missions that could easily have been filled with more mission and story. Besides the Soviets being a new faction, the Germans have very few new units. Even then both sides have few variety in types of units, especially in the vehicle section. It would have been great if all the factions from Company of Heroes and its expansions had been part of the game.
The multiplayer is best played with friends where communication and coordination is paramount. Also it might be more fun with banter than awkward silences where only one person greets and the rest ignore it. All in all, this is probably a game best to get cheap first at a expansion pricing, with friends.
