85

Great Fun But Lacks Depth

jesterx7769 | Nov. 16, 2013 | Review of Injustice: Gods Among Us - Ultimate Edition (NA)

I am giving this game an 85 because it achieves what it set out for but lacks depth. The game is tremendous fun playing as your favorite DC heroes/villains with each having their own unique moves which makes it fun. The story mode is also much better than I thought it would be and is a good way to force you to play as different characters.

The downside to the game is I feel the fighting mechanics lack depth. I straight up admit I am not very good at fighting games but this game relies on trying to link small two button combos. For example every character essentially has the same moves which are Down, Left, then "Action Button". You do this same small combos over and over trying to link them. It would be nice if there were more complicated combos and longer more powerful ones.

One of my favorites

jesterx7769 | Nov. 3, 2013 | Review of Crusader Kings II

Easily one of my favorite games ever. I am going to give this game a 95 because it could use a little more action. However while this game may not be the most action packed fun game I believe it is one of the best developed. The way the AI works with all the different traits and character decisions is fantastic. You can just be a watch and the game will unfold in its own unique universe. The DLC for the game is also fantastic adding lots of value and different ways to play the game compared to the normal DLC that you get from games.

Very good Indie Game

jesterx7769 | Nov. 3, 2013 | Review of Super Meat Boy

Very fun and easy straightforward game yet challenging to master. The game will make you think and challenge you. At the end of the level when they show you all the deaths you had you will chuckle as your guys slowly die one by one until the mighty one makes it. As far as an indie platformer this is easily a 100 as it does exactly what it went out to achieve which is a quality platformer. It is surely a must buy when it is on a cheap holiday sale so that you can say you played a great game.

Must Play Indie

jesterx7769 | Nov. 3, 2013 | Review of The Binding of Isaac

Binding of Isaac is a fantastic game. It is an amazing plat former type game (it isn’t really a plat former but I don’t know what else to call it). The game is of rogue type structure which means when you die you have to start all the way from the beginning. While at first this is annoying it quickly becomes part of the fun. The game also has some humor bits to it and lots power ups to make each run more fun from the last. I am giving it 100 because I cannot think of things the game I can do better, it achieves everything it strived for especially for an Indie game.

Best PC Racing Game

jesterx7769 | Nov. 2, 2013 | Review of GRID 2

Grid 2 is indeed the best PC racing game even though that is not saying a lot because of the lack of competition it has. The F1 games are the only ones close as well as maybe Dirt 3 but those games are very different. Grid 2 has gotten some heat from hardcore driving fans but at the end of the day you do not have very many options to drive a McClaren or other super cars. One positive is that the game does look good on max settings. I have a good machine and run the game getting over 100 fps and the lighting looks great. At the end of the day there are not many options and this game is very fun to play for a driving game even though it has some cons. I give the game a 70 because it deserves a green or a “yes you should play it” but without a lot of innovation or doing anything great I cannot rate it higher.
