Forgettable Fun

waylaide | Nov. 2, 2013 | Review of Remember Me

True to the spirit of the game, the player is thrown into a story that is fragmented and hardly developed enough (with somewhat shoddy english voice acting thrown in) to fill in the gaps as the game progresses.

The main redeeming feature of this game would be the fights and battles where the use of combos is re-imagined into a very dynamic and refreshing system. Unlike many other games where combos and hit counts come in hand in hand (like batman) the player has the choice of customizing his / her combos to attain positive status effects in accordance to the progression of the battles; and that's where the fun lies, carrying out different combos to suit the changing needs during fights. Boss fights are extremely fun as the difficulty and pace is ever-changing and can sometimes be extremely addictive.

There is A LOT of potential in this game (Original setting, story, gameplay and direction) but it truly falls short of expectations; not that it isn't fun, it just doesn't meet what regular gamers have come to expect as a staple in every game.

Compelling.

Not one moment of this game is boring. Absolutely love it when plot and gameplay are so intricately woven. With conspiracy at every turn you're thrown into the limelight of decisive action (or inaction), driven sometimes by raw emotion as you become so absorbed into the plight of a character known as Corvo and the result is a volatile and unpredictable setting as you are made to bear the consequences of your actions.

For fans who can't get enough

waylaide | Sept. 16, 2013 | Review of BioShock Infinite: Season Pass

So far only clash of the clouds has been released and from i hear there's still at least another 2 dlcs which involve a side story split into 2 parts. Clash of the clouds is easily another couple of hours gameplay and it really allows for great dynamic gaming with its challenges and gauntlet like setting.

Definitely worth playing

I found the story a little predictable but the storytelling itself was awesome. You can see a lot of effort put into the AI and it just opens up avenues of gameplay that are fresh and original. Kind of lost that horror element as compared to the original but still as kickass when it comes to FPS. Definitely one of the must-play games of the year if you're into shooters. I would recommend playing at hard difficulty to experience the diverse potential of the game.
