Mindless fun

tallem | May 22, 2014 | Review of Wolfenstein: The New Order

This game is a mindless shooter with lots of guns and lots of enemies. You take control over a captain in the US army who has a passion for killing Nazis. Dualweilding machine guns and gunning down your foes in a beautifully made game is a LOT of fun.

The textures are somewhat low-res and performance is so-so sometimes, this mostly because of the id-tech5 engine but overall it's a great experience. Recommended for anyone that wants a great campaign!

A joke of a console port.

tallem | May 6, 2014 | Review of Dark Souls II

So first off, I played a total of 15 minutes and probably killed 4 enemies, this review has NOTHING to do with gameplay.

I just could not get myself to play this game, everything about this screams of port. First off, the menus, they almost made me quit the game within a minute of launching it, they are probably the worst I've encountered in a game to date, nothing more to it. The options are for some reason even worse, to get to half of them you need to load up a save or in the case that you don't have one, start a new game. The UI has the buttons of a 360 controller yet the game does not work with mine for some unknown reason (yes it works in Steam big picture mode and in other games).

The graphics are overall also quite "meh", lighting effects and some textures look good but a lot of animations are horrid and as I got to the character creation menu I was seriously doubting that I was playing a game released in 2014.

Overall this just feels like an unfinished product and I am legitimately sad that I spent my money on it.

Simply beautiful

This game is quite incredible, the story, the feel and the characters. Everything in this game just feels right. It also gives you insight on the events that led up to the setting on the Metro games. A must buy for anyone that liked Metro 2033.
