Best WWII shooter made

jmods5710 | Feb. 12, 2014 | Review of Red Orchestra 2: Heroes of Stalingrad

The best way of describing Red Orchestra 2 is a cross between Arma and the original 3 Call of Duty games ----- just this is a lot harder. Movement is realistic. You have limited stamina and you feel what you're carrying slowing you down. When you reload with bullets still in your mag, you might reload later on to find the same mag in your gun, with only very few bullets. It is war simulation at its finest. Graphics are impressive and hold up, and the massive maps make for interesting battles. Atmosphere is amazing, almost as if you are actually in the war. BUT WARNING TO THOSE WHO DO NOT LIKE HARD GAMES This game is very difficult. Dying is easy and you will find yourself getting killed by players more experienced than you. It takes time getting used to how the game controls, and when driving a tank you have limited visibility, which is what drivers in those tanks would have had. This is no run and gun action game. So, if you want a challenge and want to play an amazing WWII game, then I recommend trying this out.

Great for Co-Op

jmods5710 | Feb. 12, 2014 | Review of Left 4 Dead 2

If you love playing games in co-op with other people then this is the game for you. If you like zombies, and borderlands, then this is the game for you. If you want something to satisfy your Dead Island tastebuds, then I recommend you get Left 4 Dead 2. This is a zombie game made by valve a few years ago. Graphics are okay, especially for the source engine, an engine made a long time ago in the early 2000s. Playing with other people is the focus of the game, and where you'll probably have most fun, but it can be enjoyed alone too. I found the single player rather boring, so if you like single player games, then don't get this unless it is really cheap or free. Otherwise, enjoy this great multiplayer game with your friends!

Buy It!

jmods5710 | Feb. 12, 2014 | Review of Space Engineers

Space Engineers is a game about building things in space. It is a sandbox game not unlike Minecraft, and even in Alpha, just as Minecraft was at first, there is still fun to be had for many hours. This game has some features that make it have potential to be better than Minecraft. First of all, you can build spaceships and space stations. And you can crash them. What you crash them into deforms with an awesome deformation engine that put holes in meteors and tears space ships apart. One thing that is awesome to do in this game is crashing into one of your friend's creations and seeing as you make a hole in their work. Multiplayer still needs some work overall though. In public servers there is a lot of lag, unless you have REALLY good internet. When playing with friends, I did not experience much lag, and the game was much more playable. Overall, if you love space sims, sandbox games, and games with awesome destruction and great graphics, then this is for you. Just make sure to buy it now, before the price rises (which it certainly will).

Another great game

jmods5710 | Feb. 8, 2014 | Review of Empire: Total War

I bought this game recently, and I have to say it is one of my favourite Total War games. It seems like a different game than the older ones, mainly because of the guns that were used in the period of time that game represents. No more archers, pikemen, and knights. No more samurai and other (mostly) melee soldiers. Now fights are still intense, but from more of a distance. This adds an interesting twist to sieges and other battles. Sea battles are fun, and multiplayer is great as always. Overall, recommend it to everyone.

Great RPG

jmods5710 | Feb. 8, 2014 | Review of The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim Nexway

Skyrim came out in 2011 and has received critical acclaim by everyone. I recently acquired the game and have been playing but there is so much to see and do that I don't know if I can do it all. But... there may be too much. The definitive version of the game is the PC version, as the game improves greatly with mods. The graphics, especially on the PC, are very good and the game looks great even on lower settings. Combat is fun, though it gets repetitive, as with most RPGs, and the story is pretty good. Unfortunately, I cannot praise the game's repetitiveness overall. Many missions and locations look somewhat familiar, especially dungeons, and you might find yourself getting bored quickly. Overall, the game is very good, and I recommend it to everyone.

Great game

jmods5710 | Feb. 8, 2014 | Review of Medieval II: Total War

This game came out in 2004, yet is still seen as a masterpiece in RTS games. I agree very much with this, as it is one of the most addicting and fun games I have played. Graphics may not be the greatest when seen now, but that doesn't matter when you try the game for yourself. You command huge armies in battle and there are many factions to choose from. The campaign is decent but that isn't the important part. If you're looking for a great RTS game, this is one that is a must buy.
