Epic gametixepower | May 17, 2013 | Review of Metro: Last Light
This game is great if you choose to play with russian voices and english subtitles.
Graphics are amazing if your computer can handle it, I had to lower graphic settings a bit for best performance but that's fine because my computer is a few years old now and I accept that I can't have the best settings anymore.
The game is creepy, really creepy and dark. When you are alone in the tunnels and creepy creatures scream at you, that's real horror.
The only negative thing I can say about this game is that there is a lot of "hand holding" at start. Only after 3-4h of gameplay you will get a chance to explore Metro on your own. The game is around 9-10 hours from what I've heard so half of the game is a bit "COD".
Alsot he pre-order bonus, the hard mode that should be available for everyone but is not. That was not a problem for me because I bought my key from Greenmangaming but it could be a problem for others. I don't agree with this kind of marketing.
If there was less hand holding and no pre-order bonus, I would give it 95/100!
Great game with awesome musictixepower | Dec. 25, 2012 | Review of Giana Sisters: Twisted Dreams
This platformer is pretty, challenging and has some awesome music from Sweden!
If you like platformers and melodic metal music, this game is for you! The swedish band that made this awesome mix of good and evil music is called Machinae Supremacy.
It's hard to describe soundtrack of this game but it's a true music art unlike any other music used in a game before.
Fun but problematictixepower | Sept. 11, 2012 | Review of Tower Wars
So this is a tower defence game with multiplayer. 1vs1, 2vs2 and 3vs3. The most fun is when you play 1vs1 or else you get matched with some random against arranged team that will have a better teamwork. Don't play 2vs2 or 3vs3 unless you have some friends to play with you.
It's really fun once you learn how everything works but early game is a little unbalanced and very hard for beginners.
Ranking system makes this game fun to play over and over again, it's never easy.
If you used to play wc3 tower defences like me with friends on LAN, this should be fun for you too.
Great corridor shootertixepower | Feb. 18, 2012 | Review of The Darkness II
I bought this game from Green Man Gaming and I've played it for 3-4 hours so far.
The game is really fun to play, a corridor shooter at heart. You can use your "darkness arms" and weapons at the same time as long as you stay out of the light. Light makes your vision blurry and kills you slowly. The darkness arms are not working in the light.
The story is average. I can't say it's bad because some moments are really beautiful and make you think, but I still feel like it's lacking something.
The main problem I have with this game is FOV and blurry vision. I felt sea sick after a while because the FOV is ported directly from consoles to PC. You can't see a lot of what happening around you. I really couldn't play this game after a while, blurry vision and low FOV doesn't work for my eyes.
Another problem is the way you pick up weapons. This is a console port so the weapons are limited and that makes things confusing. I couldn't pick up all of the weapons but I had to pick up new weapons all the time as my ammo ended fast. So I switched weapons a lot of time without wanting to do so. There was no way to see if a weapon had any ammo left or not, for me this is a design mistake at least on PC.
Still, it's a good corridor shooter if you don't mind the FOV. The developers said that they will maybe fix this soon so keep an eye on it.
Unique mix of RTS and FPStixepower | Sept. 14, 2011 | Review of Nuclear Dawn
Nuclear Dawn is an unique mix of FPS and RTS. THe commander is playing RTS and is building attack/defence buildings while the rest are playing FPS and defending or pushing to the enemy base.
There are different classes and different points to be captured. With each point you capture, you get more money for your commander to build things.
I've played this game more than 20 hours already in the beta.
This game cost around 20 $/£ and really shouldn't be something you ignore. Buy it now and play with me! ;)
