looks great, feels better than GTA

sgtfoo | March 22, 2015 | Review of Midnight Club II Steam - PC

If you ever complained about the racing/driving model of Grand Theft Auto games, this one nails it and makes racing really fun. There's enough of all the racing elements in open-world to keep you racing for a pretty long time. Some may say this is outdated, but for the time it was made, the cars really look great and the trade-off is that the racing really does FEEL fast.. whereas in other racing games the sensation of speed seems dull. going beyond 100KM/H really does feel fast in this game. Don't expect any incredibly complex story-lines... this is your own open-world racing story game.

weapons x4

sgtfoo | March 22, 2015 | Review of The Darkness II Overflow - PC

if you're dextrous enough to manage up to 4 simultaneous ways to kill enemies, then you'll enjoy the freedom of death-dealing this game has to offer. Somehow this one took a step back from the original in style and actual darkness, but such is the way with sequels and console games, lately, but this still is a GREAT port to PC. tip: Don't start in easy mode because it doesn't deal enough enemies to really have fun with, which is where this game shines. Definitely play the first one if you want to keep up with the story. This one allows for multiple playthru chances to gather your skills points until you're unstoppable... priceless destruction at hand.

if you never played Starmade or Mincraft then this is for you!

sgtfoo | March 17, 2014 | Review of Space Engineers - PC

Space engineers fulfills your need to build things from scratch in an infinite space/size and use clever mechanisms to turn your structures into functional things like ships and weapons. The style and design is exceptionally executed and well worth checking out if you enjoy building stuff. Keep in mind that early access games have their issues, but if you're willing to take part in this pre-beta stage with the developers, then it's still a worthwhile ride.

BL2 almost overshadows BL1

sgtfoo | March 17, 2014 | Review of Borderlands 2 NA Overflow 1 - PC

If you played the first one, with at least 3 playthroughs, then the appeal that brought you to BL1 will keep you in BL2. The only off-balance thing that made BL2 a little crazy was the change of level cap. If you don't stay in 1st playthru mode, the game surges up in difficulty, and nearly REQUIRES co-op play to get past anything. But that is the nature of this RPG/FPS mixed game. Once again the guns are plentiful and even more unique. The characters are funnier, and the missions... well they're usually go kill this or that, but you know the bounties are always worthwhile.

The Original while older is stronger

sgtfoo | March 17, 2014 | Review of Tom Clancys Splinter Cell NA - PC

This is the game that should have introduced you to stealth action. It has all the original moves and actions that made Sam Fisher a notable character in the stealth game realm. If you've played the new ones but missed this old one, and you're not one of those people that MUST have multiplayer, do take the time to have a run through in this game.. and to boot, you'll have another peek at Sam Fisher's story.
