Do not miss this one

roberz | June 15, 2013 | Review of The Walking Dead

This is by far the game with the most engaging story development I've encountered in quite a while. You will feel sick, sad, frustrated, bursting with joy, surprised, angry and most importantly incredibly rewarded.

There will be puzzles, quick time events and alot of dialogue. Hard decisions which just might make you feel disgusted by both yourself and your fellow survivors are quite frequent and will leave you wondering if you really did the right thing, I know I spent a fair bit of time contemplating my decisions, surprised of what I chosed.

This isn't your run of the mill zombie slasher, so keep looking if you are out to blow off some steam killing walkers.

My cup of tea

roberz | June 6, 2013 | Review of Metro 2033 PRE

Having read the book (which i thoroughly enjoyed) I had great expectations regarding this title, I was set to be dissapointed and was almoste certain that the storytelling would fail the story before starting the game up. And granted, if you wanted to relive the book by playing the game, you won't. But you will moste likely be impressed and have a great time!

The visuals are stunning and so is the sound, and you won't need a top-of-the-line unit to enjoy it. I've spent, hours i guess, just looking at the scenery from station to station and so on.

There are however some bugs that can be quite frustrating and the AI is not the greatest in the history of gaming. I'm rather fond of stealthing in games, and it can definately be done in this one as you often can choose your approach quite freely. But there are some issues with the AI which can lead to you being spotted once and never be able to reenter stealth (save for reloads or chapter changes).

If you like shooters set in a dark environment chances are you'll like this one. Play it on a difficulty setting that suits you and you will most likely be scared out of your mind, I know I was. Having died countless of times I refused to lower the difficulty and I really felt it being rewarded.

All in all it's a great game with it's ups and downs. One of my favourites of late.

Never grows old

roberz | May 13, 2013 | Review of Sid Meier's Civilization® IV Complete Cap

Definately my favourite among the series. Have been playing on and off for about 2 years now and I'm still as hooked as ever. When it comes to hardware it's rather friendly as you don't need a high-end system to enjoy it, but as always it's prefferable for a smoother ride.

With the gold edition and it's exp's you'll have more than enough civ's to play around with, all with a unique feel, no game really feels like the next one if you're willing to go outside of your comfort zone.

I'm amazed, well worth every penny!
