A must play

noname010 | Aug. 31, 2013 | Review of BioShock

One of the best games of all time. It was touted as the spiritual successor to System Shock 2, and while it never quite achieved that, it did manage to become a fantastic game in its own right. I have to say Irrational Games have become my favourite developer due to the care and attention they put into their games. Every moment in BioShock has been polished to a high sheen, the graphics are awesome, the style is unique, the game-play is extremely well balanced and paced between shooting, narrative and other activities like exploration and growing your character. The A.I is some of the best I have ever seen. But most importantly of all for me, is the way you can play the game however you want to. If you like to get in people faces with the shotgun and melee weapon you can do that, or you can stick with rapid fire weapons and high explosives, set traps, go stealthy, use the myriad of plasmids etc. Its just a fantastic and game and so spooky to boot. Without a doubt it is one of my favourite all time video games. If you like intelligent shooters then this is a must play video game

One hell of a city builder

noname010 | May 26, 2013 | Review of Tropico 4

Tropico is back better than ever. The humor in this game is just superb, you will find yourself reading all of the text boxes and actually enjoying it. That is something that rarely happens to me in games. And the city building in this game rivals such as simcity. Its just a fun and awesome experience that will get you hooked for days. There is some issues tho. As for example you can get negative ratings from factions when you have done nothing to wrong them. There are also some glitches and bugs, but nothing game breaking. Overall the issues does not hurt the game that much, it is still very much worth your time.
