Better, but not perfect

morzsolt | May 4, 2014 | Review of Max Payne II: The Fall of Max Payne

The Max Payne games are like gems in the gaming community (except MP 3, what was, shall I say, "not so well recieved"), almost everybody that played with one of them found something fetching: the story, the game mechanics, the characters or simply the fast paced shooting parts. While Max Payne 1 was a totally new gaming experience, people knew what will be in the second game, still when it came out everybody was astonished by the sheer epicness it represented. The story was a bit dull here and there, but Max's new love interest was a refreshing element in the game. The film noir-y feeling that the first MP lacked was pumped into the second installment of the series, and it did good for the story. Also, the new dream segments make sense in The Fall of Max Payne, not like in the first game. The only problem was that the gameplay is a bit boring after a time, but if you get over that, the game will repay you with a great big plot twist, or an epic shooutout. All in all: Max Payne II: The Fall of Max Payne is a must buy game, and you will love it to bits, even after all of these years.

Hit me like a truck.

morzsolt | April 16, 2014 | Review of The Walking Dead

The thing is about The Walking Dead, that it toys with you, like a bear toys with a salmon in the river.

It's a beautiful piece of ART. The game looks like a graphic novel, but still has the graphics that makes the story serious. It goes like this: You start to chat with the folks you come across, it's peaceful, everything is fine, and the zombie apocalypse feels so, so far away... and a moment later you start to cry, cause one of the characters that helped you along the road is being chewed up by walking corpses. It is so emotional, that you can't avoid the feelies at least once in the game.

The only cons I can say about it, that sometimes the controls were not perfect, and the game itself doesn't have a revolutionary idea behind it if it comes to the mechanics, but with a story like this, you won't care.
