Truly breathtaking

trainiac12 | Nov. 6, 2013 | Review of Battlefield 3 (NA)

I love this game for so many reasons. Not only is this one of the most visually appealing games of this generation, but it is also amazing as game play goes as well. While the single player campaign is way too short, the online functionality delivers. From infantry battles that cause mass panic throughout, to tank battles that rain metal, to the dogfights above all of the chaos, where the aces reign supreme. The weapons are incredibly well balanced, and each class has its own unique abilities. One thing is offset though- in rush, if the advancing team has enough assault players, they can easily push back the defenders, as the defenders can't afford to use the assault class, as they have to combat armor. Either way, it is a small flaw in an otherwise amazing game. The battlefield franchise delivers. This game is a testament to what all FPS should be.

Good, but not the best

trainiac12 | Nov. 6, 2013 | Review of Assassin's Creed III (NA) Other

Although this game is awesome in all of the right ways, it does fall short in some categories. The combat is mainly block and counter, which has been the norm for the series, but I was hoping to see something new develop along with the time settings. The frontier is awesome in every way, although I wish that the climbing system was more open than a set path. One of the features I am really happy about is the naval mechanic. I could spend hours on end piloting the Aquila. Sailing feels realistic in this game, having a supply of missions to last hours. All together, the package is amazing- but not worth the original sixty dollar price tag. If you haven't gotten this game, get it now. 30 Dollars is definitely worth this game.

Beautiful game and fun gameplay

trainiac12 | Nov. 6, 2013 | Review of Borderlands 2 (NA)

This game excels at everything. While the cell shaded graphics aren't the best in the world, they are doing what they are intended to- set it apart from the rest. Without these, though, this game achieves just that. Not only is the game incredibly addicting in single player, but it also strives to offer some of the best online play I have seen in a long time. From teaming up co-op with your friends and finding loot across the land, you can trade personally with other people in game. The characters are incredibly fleshed out and fun to love and hate. Handsome Jack is an amazing example of this, as he is one of my favorite characters in recent gaming to love as an enemy. All together, this is one of the best games I have bought, I just wish that I had bought it at release!
