Incredibly fun and addictingnoctone | Oct. 5, 2013 | Review of The Binding of Isaac
I always end up buying a lot of games, and then not playing them - or not playing them for long. I thought Binding of Isaac would end up this way, but I've already played almost 20 hours of it and I don't intend on stopping playing any time soon.
The game play can be frustrating at first since it can be very difficult at times, and sometimes you might have to find the right items in order to succeed. However, playing the game with the many different variations of items you can find is something that also adds to the replayability of The Binding of Isaac. The art, music, and other sounds are also great to watch and listen to.
I would recommend this game to just about anyone.
Interesting and unique.noctone | Sept. 24, 2013 | Review of LA Noire
LA Noire at a quick glance is basically GTA set in the mid-1900's. However, instead of running around killing civilians, the game is focused instead on investigating crimes. During much of the game you will be wandering crime scenes looking for clues, and then finding the people who committed the crime, and then interrogating them. All of the mentioned are also done incredibly well although well into the game, it may seem a little bit repetitive - it doesn't really overstay it's welcome though. (Although this may affect it's replayability.) Many of the visuals in the game are also fantastic.
More fun than expectednoctone | Sept. 23, 2013 | Review of BioShock Infinite (NA)
I went into this game expecting the combat to be incredibly dull and repetitive as many others have said. However, I found every bit of combat incredibly entertaining; you can use vigors to fight, sky-lines, your typical guns, as well as a new addition specific to Bioshock Infinite. With these options you can find many ways to win different encounters depending on your play-style. Keep in mind that the combat may be more fun if you're on a harder difficulty, forcing you to use different methods.
Other than the combat, the story is fantastic and can be enjoyed by just about anybody although it may be confusing at some points. If you've been looking for a new game to play, look no further.
Fun at first...noctone | Sept. 22, 2013 | Review of Reus
I found this game was fun when I first began playing. However, after completing more and more missions, I realised that the game quickly became repetitive. Each time that you play, you start on the exact same map and are given a time limit. From there, you build up basically just to earn achievements - or else you can't progress any further.
The game is fun, but it really needs more features to keep people playing.
