Thought-Provoking Story with The Right Mix of Action.

timedranzer | July 3, 2013 | Review of Deus Ex: Human Revolution

Deus Ex: Human Revolution follows the story of Adam Jensen, hired by Sarif Industries (who specialise in cybernetic enhancements) to protect the company's information. Having been injured in an attack on some of the scientists who work at Sarif Industries, Adam is forced to physically augment himself with cybernetic additions.

As you try to discover who was behind this attack as well as get used to your new abilities, you will be dragged into the cybernetic enhancements debate and the cost of "perfection". Deus Ex: Human Revolution is a thought-provoking story mixed with action and stealth. The choice is yours about whether to be stealthy or go for the direct approach. You are also presented with many options during conversations, which can bring about a change in the conversation as well as subtly changing objectives.

Even if you don't like shooter Games or think this will be a generic shooter, I suggest you try it. The combination of stealth, gadgets, enhancements, cover makes this a different game from its competitors.

The Real Back to the Future IV

timedranzer | July 3, 2013 | Review of Back to the Future: The Game

The Back to the Future Game rewards those who have been waiting for a new instalment in the Back to the Future saga. Set in 1986, Marty discovers that Doc Brown is missing. What Marty doesn't suspect is that he'll be soon on a complex adventure through time to help his friend.

The game is a point and click game but don't let that turn you off from the game. If you love the movies, this will be a game worthy of a sequel. Without giving away anything, there are a few small inaccuracies to nitpick at, but the game is interesting and enjoyable. I'd only recommend it for people who have seen the movies, though I doubt anyone would get this game having not seen them.

We're not going to see a live-action Back to the Future IV, so this might be the closest we'll ever get. And boy did it come close.

It's back and it's better than ever!

timedranzer | June 19, 2013 | Review of Borderlands 2 (ANZ)

Borderlands 2 is back and if you enjoyed the last game, you're gonna love this one. New characters, more elemental abilities, and most importantly, more guns. Co-op like the original, is how the game was meant to be played. Seamless drop in and drop out of friends games, a trading system and with the dlc, more character choice than ever before. In this day of age of repetitive First Person Shooters that offer nothing new and are mostly the same game re-branded, Borderlands 2 like it's predecessor, is a welcome change from the other FPS games.
