Racing with guns

megfosnot | June 4, 2013 | Review of Death Rally

Take a basic racing game and add guns.. does that make it better? Sometimes, but at other times it just feels like you are playing to earn upgrades, so that you get more cash for more upgrades - vicious cycle! The game looks great and runs great on most PCs (it's a nice re-make of a classic). Played from the same basic isometric camera angle, you can see lots of action while racing. This game is about racing the same tracks over and over to get upgrades - so if your looking for tons of varied tracks - look elsewhere.

Role playing for the LoTR fan

megfosnot | June 4, 2013 | Review of The Lord of the Rings: War in the North

With so many role playing type games, how does this one set itself aside from others - one big answer - Lord of the Rings Lore. The game stays consistent with the LoTR Lore and world. If you like the movies, then this game delivers - it is like playing a movie. You select a character (you don't get to create your own like some other RP games) - which keeps that consistent feel. Controls take a little getting used to - compared to playing games like World or Warcraft. And sometimes the camera can be an issue when trying to kill things - but the cinematic quality of the cut-scenes is great. Also different about this game compared to many RP games is the co-op. It was designed with co-op from the beginning and you can feel the difference that makes. So.. go grad a friend and let the adventure begin!
