Superhero Game Done Right!

shazaam780 | June 5, 2013 | Review of Batman: Arkham Asylum Game of the Year

Batman Arkham Asylum is a phenomenal game. I really do feel like I am the one and only caped crusader. Batman is a detective and the game makes that very clear when you go around looking for clues. The stealth in this is great; You can use detective vision to watch where your enemies are going so that you can set traps or knock them out. The combat is nice too. Batman is an expert on various forms of martial arts and the game utilizes a simple combat system to show this. There's stun, attack, counter, and some other special moves that you can unlock. While I will admit that there are times where I felt I was being to reliant on detective vision, I can wholeheartedly say that this is a game you need to get right now.

A pretty good game.

shazaam780 | May 25, 2013 | Review of Borderlands 2 (NA)

Overall this is a pretty good game. It mixes RPG and shooters fairly well. There were so many times that I would be checking and comparing guns. However I won't go and say this game is perfect. It's hard to put my finger on it, but sometimes I felt like I was on a huge grindfest. Furthermore, there were times when my objective was a little unclear and so I spent a whole hour going around the map searching for the objective when I had been using the wrong path. Overall though, it is an excellent game and one I highly recommend others to try out and play.

Wow!

shazaam780 | April 28, 2013 | Review of BioShock Infinite (NA)

I remember flying to the land of Columbia and just thinking "Wow!". Bioshock Infinite has a deep and developed story and environment. Columbia looks great and it really shows when you take you first step in. The shooting mechanics are, in my opinion, pretty good. While I will admit that it may not rank up there with the hard-hitters I had fun mixing around with vigors. Admittedly, though, sometimes I just wanted to get over with the big fights because the real highlight, though, is the environment and the story. Sure the game may be a tad over hyped but it's still a damn good game, I think you should get it for the experience and form your own opinion.

A great game

shazaam780 | April 28, 2013 | Review of Hitman: Absolution

It's not a perfect game but it is pretty good. The stealth mechanics work in some places but there are also time when it feels like I'm simply running in front of guards and using up my instinct. One very enjoyable part is that there are a great number of ways to kill your target. It can be anywhere from poisoning them to making a quick and clean assassination. One of my gripe though is the point shooting mechanic. Personally I didn't find much use of it and I thought that detracted from the stealth feature of the game. Overall though it is a great game and a good incentive to check out the others in the series.
