A honest try

re_watanabe | July 5, 2013 | Review of Sonic the Hedgehog 4 : Episode II

Sonic 4 Episode II is not a bad game. However, it is not exactly what we were waiting for. Obviously, it is the game that is closest to its golden era (the first two Sonics), but it still holds a strange DNA from previous chapters. Sonic isn't as fast as he was before, the gameplay lacks precision when needed and the aim system fails too much. The graphics are nice, but nothing impressive. It's a good game for Sonic fans, but if you're looking for something that convices you to become a Sonic player, I recommend Sonic Generations first. PS: Play with a good controller (X360, for example). It's really annoying to play with a keyboard.

Underrated game

re_watanabe | July 4, 2013 | Review of Sleeping Dogs Digital Edition

Sleeping Dogs is one of my favorite games. It has a very interesting story that pays tribute to many kung fu movies from 70's-80's. It has a nice combat mode (rarely you get a gun) and a decent driving skills. The main story can be beaten in 20 hours, but it´s really easy to play more than 60 hours, just checking the city out, completing side quests and playing the DLCs missions. By the way, pay attention to the DLC. Some of them brings very nice side missions that will elevate the replay factor, but some of them just brings new clothes, cars or guns that are really dispensable. Many sites underrates this game, comparing with GTA. Honestly, I think this is unfair. Sleeping Dogs has his own personality and worths the price.

Nice 2D Challenge

re_watanabe | July 4, 2013 | Review of Super Meat Boy

It's a very interesting game. SMB brings good 2D games time back. Challenging, charmful and not frustrating. You keep trying for so many times until achieve the goal without wanting to give up. For PC gamers with a good controller, it is a must-have.

Great game!

And Codemasters do it again. Nice game that suits very well for any kind of player. Combine it with Grid and F1 and you will have a sufficient racing game library.

Obligatory, for any PC gamer

re_watanabe | May 31, 2013 | Review of Darksiders II

It's one of the most underrated games. Great story and a very interesting gameplay that mixes well elements for The Legend of Zelda, God of War and Castlevania. When released, the PC version was little buggy, but, after a few patches, the game now runs fine.
