Add a new layer of strategy

gravekeeper867 | Aug. 21, 2013 | Review of Sid Meier's Civilization V: Gods & Kings

Gods and Kings adds on to an already great game by giving you more options for domination. This add-on gives you the strategic ability to weaken your foes and gain influence in their cities passively, which is great since before the only way you could do this was with money. Now you can turn you nation into a religious society sending priests to enemy nations to sway their people into submission. This add-on allows for more options when trying a cultural or economic victory.

Great but long

gravekeeper867 | Aug. 21, 2013 | Review of Sid Meier's CivilizationĀ® V

This game is great if you are looking for a turn based strategy game for mulitplayer or single player. The graphics are definitely a step up from the previous version civilization 4. However this game has improvements over the previous one but still has hick ups. For instance military units are no longer stack-able which leads to most of my headaches when garrisoning units for attack and just plainly moving my armies in general. Also I feel that they made this game even longer than the last one, not saying it is a bad thing but can grow tiresome on standard time settings.

Best game of the decade

gravekeeper867 | Aug. 19, 2013 | Review of Fallout 3: Game of the Year Edition

Honestly this game is endless, tireless, fun, and keeps me coming back every time. I have personally played this game from start to near 100% completion 4 times. If this is a game that you don't own or are not sure of getting let me cleared it up for you...just BUY IT! Every single dlc for Fallout 3 add another element of game play, depth and atmosphere to an already immersive ground breaking title. No other fallout game to date has the same level of appeal or feel that this one has, not even New Vegas can touch Fallout 3. The strength of your character starting out determines how far you can explore and thus focusing you on the story as an elegant imaginary boundary. As you develop your skills you can slowly start to explore the wastes to find the stories and treasures of the former world, bandits, or secret projects. All of which aid in your immersion and understanding of the world around you.

Not the best but had its moments

gravekeeper867 | Aug. 19, 2013 | Review of BioShock Infinite (NA)

This game has an interesting story that is based off of a scientific theory called string theory, however this idea isn't fleshed out until the end. Story aside this game sadly was repetitive and simple. The bosses were easy and AI was buggy at best in some parts. Non the less this game is polished and the mechanics are solid enough to keep even the most frantic of gamers occupied for a couple of hours.
