Great Multiplayer Military Shooter

lizardspenguin | Nov. 7, 2013 | Review of Battlefield 4 (NA)

Battlefield 4 is a great online multiplayer shooter. Nothing like making a squad with a bunch of your buddies and watching each others back in a chaotic battlefield. I was also blown away by the graphics in this game. I play with an HD Radeon 7970 3GB of Video RAM, 16GB RAM, and a 3.4GHz i7 Quad Core processor with the games video settings on Ultra and it feels like they covered every detail on the multiplayer maps. Weather changing, buildings falling, fully destructible environments all in the middle of matches. The tons of unlockable weapons and accessories keep you hooked as well. While the main reason for me purchasing any Battlefield game is the online multiplayer, I was pleasantly surprised by the single player campaign. The single player campaign was short, but sweet with what I thought I was a very good ending. I don't want to go into specifics because I don't want to give spoilers, but if you are a fan of FPS you'll more than likely enjoy it.

Took a chance and loved this game.

This game didn't look very interesting to me at first glance. A friend of mine played through it and finally persuaded me to give it a try. I was hooked in 5 minutes. I thought the narration of the main characters actions as you play was very unique and added a touch to the game. Not to mention the soundtrack for the game was right on point. The game also had a great combination of weapons and upgrades. If you're on the fence about this game as I was, just take the leap and give it a try. I think you'll be pleasantly surprised.

Excellent Army Strategy Shooter

lizardspenguin | Nov. 7, 2013 | Review of Full Spectrum Warrior Complete

I played these games back when they came out about a decade ago and loved them. When I saw them on Greenmangaming, I had to grab them especially with the great bundle sale price. Playing cover to cover and ordering your squad into position to flank and take out enemies is very enjoyable. I recommend these games for anybody that loves military shooters.

Fun Basketball Game

lizardspenguin | Oct. 22, 2013 | Review of NBA 2K13

I have played every NBA 2K game going back to the dreamcast. I have always found this series the most entertaining and exciting bball game on the market. Animations look natural, commentating is pretty good, and the dunks are exciting. The presentation is okay. The intros leading into the games are pretty good, but the generic half time show doesn't match it. The coaches on the sideline look strange sometimes too. They always seem to have a blank awkward stare on their faces. I feel like the cpu defense has been dulled down a little compared to 2k11 & 2k12. It makes for a more enjoyable experience and exciting plays, but games are still competitive. I managed to grab this during a 24 hour sale for $4 so I feel like I easily got my moneys worth :) I would give it a 90, but I'll have to drop it down to an 85 just because they feature Justin Bieber in the game...
