Good game, Bad Hitman.jorge131313 | May 16, 2013 | Review of Hitman: Absolution
I´ve got a problem with this game. If you play and see this game like any other stealth game, probably you will think is a good, even above average game. But if you play it like any other Hitman games....then you will realise is not Hitman at all.
First of all, suits system no longer works like used to. Enemy will detect you if you spend long time on their sight. Is that a problem? maybe not really, it makes the game more challenging but the biggest problem is the formula. Most of the maps are literally a tunnel. Go from A to B, that´s it. Only a few are open and consist in kill a target. And that's a huge problem, because that´s not what a Hitman game is about.
Graphics and sound are superb, top tier. Maps are beautiful and full of details.
Gameplay fails a little too, now you can hide a sniper rifle with no need of the good old Hitman suitcase. You can´t carry poison or any kind of drug. Sometimes, you kill someone using a gun but you will see there´s no blood pool, even when you drag the corpse it won´t leave a blood trail.
Contracts mode is the best new feature of this game, compete with your friends. Send them contracts and earn money you can spend in upgrades for your weapons.
About difficulty, game is not hard at all, at least not like Hitman 2. Purist mode is not that hard and game lacks in complexity.
So as you can read, i love and hate this game. If you want a good stealth game, or you have never played a Hitman game before, go for it. If you are a fan of the series and you dont mind a change in the formula, go for it. If you are a Hardcore fan and you expect only the best Hitman has to offer, think twice before buy it.
Test your might!jorge131313 | May 16, 2013 | Review of Sleeping Dogs: Limited Edition
One or should i say the best sleeper of the year. Tired of GTA, Just cause and other sandbox about shoot, shoot and make things go boom? This is your game.
In such beautiful and detailed city like Hong Kong, you can spend hours walking or driving around doing nothing but enjoy the view. The plot is ok, a game like this doesn´t need a complex plot to go on.
Gameplay is superb, best definition is a mix of Batman:AC and Just Cause 2. Except of course you can´t fly in a suit running after a guy with the face painted like a clown or use a parachute just before steal a plane and make it crash.
Graphics and sounds are good, specially at night with all the neons and stuff. My only complain is the map, should be a little bigger or more complex, after play GTAIV i can´t do nothing but compare it with other sandbox.
Anyway, if you are tired of the typical Shooter-sandbox and you love martial arts, buy it. You won´t regret it.
Obra maestrajorge131313 | May 10, 2013 | Review of Bioshock Infinite
This game represents why i love videogames. A world full of details, a good story, a lovely NPC (Elizabeth) in a clear and perfect world on first sight but corrupted, cruel and dark once you dig deep in it.
The only thing i dont like is quite the absence of plot and dramatic turns in the middle of the game, i felt more like fighting, fighting but no news. And the game should dig deeply with tonics, is not complex like the second one.
Definitely a must buy if you have enough hours to spend, playing the game slowly so you can get every detail of the story.
