One of the best games of 2012

insane11 | Dec. 21, 2012 | Review of Dishonored Nexway

This is one of the most original games I've ever played. I got it on my Xbox360 and is pure awesome! From the characters to the setting, everything has been well thought out. The story is compelling and the level design is so detailed it warrants multiple playthroughs. The gameplay is the real star of the show though, allowing different approaches to level completion and even more approaches to combat (or no combat).

The only negative aspect of Dishonored that I've discovered so far are the graphics. I'm not a fan of the art style (despite having been made by Viktor Antonov, the legendary Half Life 2 visual artist). I would have much rather preferred a realistic visual style coupled with a much stronger contrast in lighting. Instead I have to make due with low res textures and a serious lack of shadows :S But none the less, I'm content with what I have.

I'm only 5 hours in but this game has me gripped and won't let go!

Zombieees :-)

This RPG is among one of the best I've ever played! Also one of the longest games I've ever played. So much detail, so many weapons, so many choices! The zombie types are more or less similar to what you might have seen in other games but they still have their own unique features. The setting is amazing, you get to explore the entire island from the crowded city streets to the isolated jungle. The weapons could be slightly improved upon, but I couldn't ask for much more out of this game. I highly recommend.

Awesome game so far

This was one of those games I knew would be amazing before I even played it. Following on from Arkham Asylum I thought that Rocksteady studios might have a hard time trying to teach an old dog new tricks. However they managed to up the ante and create one of the most stunning game worlds I've ever been a part of... That's why the Arkham Asylum and City are GOTY's :-)

Great game

insane11 | Dec. 13, 2012 | Review of The Darkness II dns

I like The Darkness ll. It's a game that's linear and typical in terms of envrionment design, but oh so fun to play when it comes to story and gameplay.

The Darkness is the ultimate weapon, you can use it to melee, grab, and literally tear apart enemies. I love the idea of relying on the dark to access the darkness abilities. You can also upgrade your powers. The weapons are awesome, quite a few to choose from and they all sound great and make a great addition to the darkness powers.

There are several choices throughout the story as well. The character animations bring the characters to life and the enemies act like living breathing people rather than dull AI that just tries to kill you.

I just don't like that its short single player campaign...

A batman adventure

insane11 | Dec. 8, 2012 | Review of Batman: Arkham Asylum Game of the Year -

An amazing game, especially when using the PC version coupled with Nvidia 3D vision. My only gripe is that you end up spending the majority of the play time in black&white (due to investigative mode). Even though, it's still an immensely joyable game with outstanding visuals, modeling, animation, etc...

Recommending that game!
