Boring and annoying.kairegister | June 1, 2013 | Review of Bastion
Lump this game along with other over-rated indie games (and this is coming from someone who loves indie games). The game pretty much consists of you rolling and attacking. Offers no challenge at all, roll around like a madman if you want. The graphics are pretty good, the music is boring, and the sound effects are actually annoying. Everytime I drink something or roll (which as I said, you do a lot) it annoys the heck out of my ears. The game is also only 3 hours long to beat, which unfortunately I consider a good thing in this case cause it gave me permission to stop playing after a short period of time.
Fighting game with more free controlskairegister | May 30, 2013 | Review of Fairy Bloom Freesia
The game doesnt offer much. You play in an arena, you fight monsters and try to kill them all by chaning combos. It isnt a button masher, you can even do attacks to push enemies away and do dodges rather than just blocking.
The game lacks content and depth though. You'll play it and see that's all it offers.
Short, simple, still entertainingkairegister | May 30, 2013 | Review of Storm in a Teacup
You float in a teacup, it's a simple platformer. The game offers some challenges (getting all the items in a level without dying), and some survival modes. Does graphics and music right. One of the better "kid"-friendly platformers on steam
Fun arcade actionkairegister | May 30, 2013 | Review of Zombie Driver
Top-down view and guns and cars is always an obvious way of saying "I'm going to be fun dang it". Offers 3 modes, a campaign where you need to rescue people like you're a taxi driver, another where you race and do tournaments with crazy weapons, and survival, which is always an arcade favorite.
At a sale price, this game will offer you quite a few hours of just doing everything. Then probably a few more hours just to have fun.
Very enjoyable FPS similar to Serious Samkairegister | Feb. 26, 2013 | Review of Painkiller: Black Edition
This game is all about shooting. Shoot shoot shoot. Shoot them all. Tons of monsters. One thing this game benefits over Serious Sam are the level design. None of the levels are just an open field, and it's very easy and comfortable navigating the inside of a building. There's also enjoyable bosses (Which I feel Sam didnt get until BFE)
The game offers many weapons, each with 2 different weapon kind (Example: The machine gun is also a rocket launcher. yeah, exactly)
If you're thinking of getting this game, dont play on Insomnia ("Normal" difficulty), it's too easy at that difficulty.
Monsters EVERYWHEREkairegister | Feb. 21, 2013 | Review of Painkiller Black Edition DNS
The game plays somewhat similar to Serious Sam, where there's a bunch of monsters and you're hoping you can kill them all. The game has armor you and healthpacks, which is something not often seen in new FPS games.
The level design are good, it's not just giant open-fields, and at the same time you're never in some building that's a hassle to get around. There's 6 or more weapons, each with an alternate fire. The mini-gun is also a rocket launcher. Isnt that just awesome?
If you're a fan old-school shooters, give this a try. But play the game past Insomnia (the "normal" difficulty), it's not hard enough.
The PC Port we deservekairegister | Feb. 2, 2013 | Review of Sonic and All-Stars Racing Transformed
The game runs great at max settings with not great specs, almost guaranteed to run on your computer even if it's low. Tons of charactrs, 20 tracks (all with a mirror mode). great controls for cars, planes, and boats. a world tour mode There's splitscreen multiplayer AND (what we didnt get with the first game), online multiplayer! The stages are great, referencing classic Sega games, and most in the 3-lap has a "unique" section that is different. An example would be the Sky Sanctuary stage (Sonic 3&K), the third lap the entire stage is actually collapsing (like in the game) and the track changes because of it. Definitely a must for Mario Kart fans. Or fans of kart-racing games in general, not much of those on PC gaming besides Zero Gear and that F1 game
Average gameplay, interesting storykairegister | Jan. 29, 2013 | Review of Spec Ops: The Line dns
This game is mostly a typical cover-based third person shooter. You use guns, hide behind things, you can blindfire from cover or poke your head out to aim. The game is pretty short (6hours for me on normal difficulty, which honestly was somewhat hard. You have low health, take your cover seriously), which honestly is a good thing. The game isnt fun enough to be any longer, you get your dose of action and ends before it becomes a chore. Also, the graphics and pretty good and some of the moments are pretty cinematic. This is "Sand everywhere" done right. What you'll truly enjoy is the story. It's not another "Kill them aliens!" or "Kill them [Nation]!" type of games. You'll go deep into the minds of the main character and the ugliness of war. Highly recommend for the story.
A serious GTA clonekairegister | Jan. 14, 2013 | Review of Sleeping Dogs Digital Edition
This is another GTA-clone, big world where you can do whatever you want in a big beautiful city. Unlike most, this game has a serious plot. No over-the-top action or jokes. This game also primarily focuses around martial arts combat rather than guns. you punch, kick, counter attacks, sweeps, and learn more moves as you go along. There are times where you'll have a gun to fight other gunmans, but not too often. There are tons to do, a lot of side missions and collectables. and more than just action, like racing missions, and some fun hacking mini-games to gain control of a camera or picking a lock. Also, the graphics are amazing and the game is extremely optimized.
Good action, very repetetivekairegister | Jan. 10, 2013 | Review of Devil May Cry 4 dns
First thing I notice with this great is "Man this action is awesome" when you start off as Nero. but then you realize "That's it?". Later in the game you play as Dante, which has a different combat system and that's also great. but then it feels like you're just doing the game again but with a new character. Same level, same bosses. The game feel like you do the game, then you do it again 2 more times. Worth it for the action and challenge at a low price, but you might not last.
Fun arcade racing gamekairegister | Jan. 4, 2013 | Review of Need for Speed: Hot Pursuit (NA) dns
Hot Pursuit is not a simulator, it's insane fun. You get to play as a cop trying to interfere with races, you do this by ramming into them or hitting them with EMPs or spike strips. You also get to play as the racers, avoiding the cops and making a run for it. The game offer tons of missions getting harder and harder for single-player, with a ranking system to add replay value. Also has online multiplayer, cops vs racers. racers tries to make a run for it to win, while the cops tries to make sure they dont finish to win.
Different kind of platformerkairegister | Jan. 4, 2013 | Review of Super Meat Boy
Rather than 3-minute long levels with checkpoint, this game is different. It consists of short levels... very short. 1 minute at the longest I'd say. The game involves dying all the time. Not from enemies, but from falling or running into sawblades. The game isnt just a platformer, but a time trial. You'll enjoy not just beating the levels, but perfecting the levels to get the fastest time. The game consist of jumping and jumping on and off of walls and nothing else. Highly recommended for fans of games that gives you the urge to perfect something.
Way better than Episode 1kairegister | Nov. 30, 2012 | Review of Sonic the Hedgehog 4 : Episode II
If you played Episode 1, you probably noticed bad graphics, bad physics, bad level design, bad music, the whole dang game is just bad.
Episode 2 however tried much harder. The game looks fantastic, and the physics is there this time. When you jump while running, you cant just stop magically in midair by letting go of movement. There's 4 zones with 3 acts each, followed up by a boss fight. Some levels has gimmicks using tails as a partner, where he helps you fly around or swim around, or go into a superball, or tails will fly a plane for you.
If none of this convinced you. Let me say this. Beating Episode 1 for me was a chore, i did not want to do that. but with episode 2, i actually went back to get the 7 chaos emeralds, collect the red ring in each act, get the steam achievements.
Not just Sonickairegister | Nov. 30, 2012 | Review of Sonic Adventure™ 2
Sonic Adventure 2 is more than just playing Sonic going fast and jumping around. You also play as Tails and Robotnik, who controls a big machine that shoots things and flies a little. You also play as Knuckles and Rouge to find hidden treasure.
There's one more thing, the Chao Garden. As you play the game and collect rings, you can raise a cute creature call "Chao", and play games with them like race and karate. You'd be surprised how much you will enjoy these Chao.
Great port, Great Game, Great Pricekairegister | Oct. 25, 2012 | Review of Sonic CD
Any fan of Sonic CD will enjoy this port. It looks the same yet fits to your screen without and making it look ugly. Controls great with both keyboard and Xbox360 controller. Both US and JP soundtracks. If you enjoyed the original Sonic CD, you'll enjoy this.
It's a game with cute worms that have funny speechbankskairegister | Sept. 14, 2012 | Review of Worms Reloaded
Worms Reloaded is a turn-based strategy game. You have a team of worms (up to 4) and have to battle another team of worms, in this game you could have 4 teams fighting each other. The goal is to use your worms to kill the other worms with a variety of weapons. In the singleplayer campaign, things are not as easy or "balanced" as it sounds which is what makes it fun. Towards the later mission, you may have 2 worms at 50HP and have to kill 12 worms at 100HP each. This is where the strategy portion of the game shines. AI Worms have amazing aiming and use of weapons, but they are so DUMB. It's up to you to figure out how to kill them all even with the disadvantage.
Worms in 3D, very different from 2Dkairegister | Sept. 14, 2012 | Review of Worms Ultimate Mayhem
The main problem with Worms being in 3D is it makes it incredibly less competitive. There's no "Hiding underground" by digging with a blowtorch and other silly things. However one thing it does right is being more fun and more silly, more ridiculous stuff can happen here. If you're a fan of the series for fun and silliness, I would recommend giving it a shot. Wouldn't recommend for your first Worms title.
Holy crap this world is HUGEkairegister | Sept. 14, 2012 | Review of Just Cause 2
This sandbox game is definitely one of the biggest worlds you'll see in a game. You get to drive cars, fly helicopters planes or jets. There are various activies such as checkpoints (done in car, planes, or even by jumping off roofs), or action scenes where you get in gunfights, or even hijacking a car and delivering it somewhere. The fun part is the grapple and parachute, you can go ANYWHERE you see, by just grappling and flying. The grapple can also be used to attach two things together for hilarious results.
Fun stuff, very shortkairegister | Aug. 18, 2012 | Review of Saints Row: The Third - Season Pass
Genki Bowl VII offers more Genki Bowl missions and some basejumping missions and driving gekni around, who happens to enjoy watching people die. Gangstas In Space has you starring in a movie about the third street saints... in space. mostly add more action missions, very funny dialogue/story The Trouble with Clones is a horror story and having you deal with clones, also funny and mostly action. The main problem with this is the price. I feel each of these add maybe 90 minutes of content. I recommend getting if you can find it on the cheap.
Great game, Bad Port, be careful.kairegister | Aug. 18, 2012 | Review of Saints Row 2
Saints Row 2 is a fantastic sandbox game, offers a neat story in both humorous and serious ways. Offers lot to do no matter how stupid. The Saints Row fights 3 gangs in this one, and you can do them in any order. Before doing missions, you need to earn "Respect" which you do by finishing missions such as massive destructions, races, taxi drive-bys, and much more. The only bad part is, this game works very very poorly for many. Often held as the worst port of all time for PC. The game may crash constantly, run twice as fast as it should be, and many other problems.
Possibly the best Sonic since S3&Kkairegister | Aug. 18, 2012 | Review of Sonic Generations
As a long time sonic fan, i felt this is the first 2D Sonic game since the genesis days to be as good as those old sonic games. Every level has 2 acts, one in Classic Sonic, and one in Modern. Even Modern Sonic episodes are great, they play different but they made modern sonic work properly in 2D.
Amazing co-op and actionkairegister | June 15, 2012 | Review of Killing Floor
Unlike some zombie-shooting game, this game actually promotes co-op. It has classes, zombies that should be killed with different weapons (dont just mindlessly shoot at it), lots of difficulties, many official maps. Joining a server with a custom map downloads it automatically, and there's tons of those. If you enjoy the gameplay, this game may never get old.
