Code of Honor 2: Conspiracy Island
At least it lived up to its title as it’s got nothing to do with French people or mysteries of any sorts.
Code of Honour 2: Conspiracy Island – what does that tells you? An island full of mysteries and intrigue? Well that's a total conspiracy in itself as this game has absolutely nothing to do with ...
If it maintain that ominous feeling, it would be a sinister game indeed.
Publishers and developers City Interactive has its fair share of hits and misses. Actually more misses than hits as rightfully so, they never advertised as being a AAA developer. However there are bou...
Good things happen to those who wait.
If I fully describe the first thirty minutes of my adventures in Gothic, I feel most gamers will simply give up. Let me summarise it for you – I start out in a mining colony, gets belted up by s...
Kingdoms of Amalur: Reckoning - The Legend of Dead Kel
If you are planning just doing the main quest, you are giving this DLC a disservice.
When the Legend of Dead Kel was first announced as a DLC for The Kingdoms of Amalur, admittedly I groaned a little. You know, zombies, pirates and then some zombie pirates. However, even though it had...
Whilst graphically inferior to its arcade cousin, the gameplay still has the same intensity.
Undoubtedly Spy Hunter was a huge success in the arcades back in 1983. Has a James Bond type of feel where you drive a pretty impressive car in top down view, armed with the default machine guns at th...
Euro Truck Simulator (Gold)
If it wasn’t for the career objectives, I probably enter this game into an early retirement.
SCS Software specialised in making truck simulations from its humble beginnings back in 1997 with Hard Truck. From then on in, it concentrated on the American theater with its successful 18 Wheels of ...
*** This review only covers the additional features of Thief and not the original game itself ***
Probably unbeknownst by developers Looking Glass, Thief was a great success considering the innovative features it presented itself – well not exactly innovative however features that was in a ...
Thief: The Dark Project
This game is not for everyone however if you don’t give it a chance, you’ll never experience a masterpiece in motion.
One of the realities of life is that it's full of risks. Every decision you make has an element of risk as nothing is 100% risk proof – whether it's the decision you make to buy an item or simpl...
Damnation is a product released way too late to capitalise its strongest features.
Gameplay: 4 (cool parkour style however other games does this a lot better / crappy storyline)Graphics: 8 (beautiful vistas however the building structures doesn’t make sense)Sounds: 4 (poor voi...
With a bit more spit and polish, this game could surely kick some serious ass.
Before the release of Restricted Area, it was a game of many promises (then again, what game didn't). It promised a powerful game engine, advanced AI, advanced combat system, complex role playing syst...
Galaxy On Fire 2 Full HD
If you are new to the trading / space sim genre and want a taste for it, this is the game to play.
Gameplay: 8 (easy to learn / decent controls / great selection of ships / storyline is a joke though) Graphics: 9 (lives up to its HD title considering the budget to make it / font size needs readjus...
Welcome to the dawning of a new world.
Gameplay: 9 Graphics: 10 Sounds: 8 Value: 8 Tilt: 9 It's seems like the life of a syndicate warlord is pretty tough in the year 2096. Gone are the governments (as they have little control of an...
F.E.A.R. Extraction Point
Still maintains the flavour of FEAR. That is intense combat infused with spooky events with a few more gadgets/critters
Gameplay: 8 Graphics: 8 Sounds: 8 Value: 6 Tilt: 7 Total score: 7.3 When FEAR burst into the FPS scene, the vast population was totally amazed by its John Wo's combat style, slow-mo action, cl...
S.T.A.L.K.E.R.: Shadow of Chernobyl
Only GSC Game World can make the world's worst man made disaster into a magical place of discovery.
* Note - the review is based on the game Stalker + the Stalker Complete Mod 2009 - why I included this is because the mod is free to download. Gameplay: 9 (with the Stalker Complete mod it basicall...
The Elder Scrolls: Arena
The treasure that slipped out of their hands however could have been avoided if they are just a little more careful.
Gameplay: 5 (lots to offer however not implemented well enough / storyline weak / game breaking bugs) Graphics: 9 (quite pleasant to look at / love that day, night, sunrise, sunset effects) Sounds: ...
Richard & Alice
A cleverly designed game filled with hidden choices however could ease down the wall of text though.
I maybe a depressing person as I listen to bleak music, watching bleak shows and wearing at times, bleak clothes. The reality though is my outlook is quite positive considering however I'm not sure wh...
Lost In Time
An adventure game starring the female version of MacGyver.
Gameplay: 8 (solid all-round / storyline reasonable however extremely cheesy ending) Graphics: 9 (impressive however it's odd how they use photo realistic backdrops in some areas and drawings in anot...
Spy vs. Spy
There wasn't a game in 1984 that can truly match the quality and pace of Spy Vs Spy.
Gameplay: 9 Graphics: 8 Sounds: 8 Value: 9 Tilt: 10 Actual score: 9.1 Note: This review is based on the Atari XL series and not the C64. Naturally in GS, the Atari version has no cover art and...
The Pharaoh's Curse
If a game has a spelling mistake in its title, you know it's the beginning of the end.
Gameplay: 3 Graphics: 4 Sounds: 2 Value: 4 Tilt: 1 Actual score: 2.6 I'm going to cut straight to the chase here – Pharaoh's Curse is nothing more than a debacle mess of a game, if you can cal...
Navy SEALs: Weapons of Mass Destruction
This game should be given away for free with a no refund policy.
Gameplay: 2 Graphics: 2 Sounds: 2 Value: 4 Tilt: 2 Considering I was a student in Philosophy and Sociology, I remember a debate that if a person is surrounded (or socialised) with 'fools' would...
Unreal Tournament 2004 (DVD Version)
UT2004 is not just another multiplayer FPS, it's the ultimate FPS experience.
Gameplay 9 Graphics 9 Sounds 9 Value 10 Tilt 10 The Good * The massive choices of gaming styles * Gaming Optimisation * Well developed characters The Bad * A little intimidating for newe...
Rod Hero, the hero of H.E.R.O. brings back heroism to gaming…so much heroism indeed.
At one stage or another, you will come across a hero as after all, heroes come in assortment of shapes and sizes. Some are wanna be heroes and some are truly heroes however I guess they are all heroes...
Guild Wars Special Edition
Guild Wars is not a true MMO in its purest sense, however it's a game built for the player in mind.
Arguably Ultima Online set the tone for the 'massively multiplayer online' experience – or better known as MMO. You know, getting many players online with an ever changing world where the players can ...
Arcania: Fall of Setarrif
So we have a city called Setarrif - let's do something with it...anything.
After a long hiatus, Arcania: Fall of Setarrif finally arrived back in late 2011 as it was originally announced to be released during mid-2010, and then postponed indefinitely around March 2011. Obvio...
Avernum: Escape From the Pit
It doesn't rely on flashy cut scenes but heavily on storytelling.
Gameplay: 8 (true open world goodness / interface can be clunky at times) Graphics: 4 (not its strongest points however it does serve its purpose, barely) Sounds: 3 (the weakest point of the game ho...
Assassin's Creed II: Discovery
They should of stick to platforming (similar to Altair's Chronicles) then trying to incorporate 'freeroaming' style.
Gameplay: 4 (storyline slightly confusing / seems to confuse timed platform jumping with exploration) Graphics: 7 (pretty slick for a DS however sometimes the frame rates crashes) Sounds: 8 (voice a...
Assassin's Creed: Bloodlines
A decent addition considering some alterations are needed to suit the PSP's limited capabilities.
Altair / Assassin's Creed – two synonymous names for the Assassin's Creed saga back in 2008. The PC / consoles got it, the DS got their version (Altair Chronicles in case you didn't know it) and now i...
Fallout 3: Broken Steel
Whilst the campaign is a little on the weak side, the perks that comes with it made it up tenfold.
It would be difficult task to explain the plot of Broken Steel without entering the world of spoilers as it's literally a direct follow up to Fallout 3. Yet it seems that whatever ending you wind up g...
Fallout 3: Point Lookout
A great expansion with a new area to explore filled with activities (which was lacking in the previous DLCs).
After all the DLCs I have played for Fallout 3, one of my major criticisms was that even though there's plenty to see, the locals felt empty in some way. Running on that thought when booting up Point ...
Assassin's Creed: Altair's Chronicles
The prequel's journey has a lacklustre storyline, messed up puzzles and events that makes Altair looking clumsy.
Gameplay: 5 (old style platform jumping yet sword fights brings a good diversion / mini games felt like a afterthought) Graphics: 7 (visually serves its purpose) Sounds: 7 (nice musical scores / lov...
Assassin's Creed II: Bonfire of the Vanities
Whilst it opens up a new area in Florence, the area is somewhat void of activities.
After a disappointing first DLC the Battle of Forli, naturally I was a bit dubious about Assassin's Creed 2 second DLC Bonfire of the Vanities. Yet I'm not saying that Battle of Forli was a boring DLC...
Ship Simulator Extremes: Harbor Pilot
Well, if it isn't my arch nemesis, the pilot boat comes back with its own DLC, the 'Harbour Pilot'.
To those who don't know the 'backstory' to this, Pilot Boats during the core game 'Ship Simulator Extremes' caused me grief in many ways, and the major one is refusing to dock alongside my boat to tra...
Fallout 3: The Pitt
Whilst feeling quite empty (i.e. lack of quests), the ending definitely was worth the trip.
Raiders – you bound to come across them very early on in Fallout 3 as they wander around the wasteland, looking to add more to their 'trade'. Of course, it's 'big business' and actually there's one se...
Chernobyl Terrorist Attack
Keeping in mind it's just a run-of-the-mill shooter (with some grievances along the way).
Gameplay: 5 Graphics: 6 Sounds: 4 Value: 4 Tilt: 7 Actual score 5.7 There are times that I'm in a mood for a quick fix – nothing too complicate; just shoot and kill stuff and move on to the ne...
Assassin's Creed II: Battle of Forli
This DLC unfortunately doesn't add any new features to Assassin Creed 2 other than some sweet dialogues from Caterina.
When Ezio meets Caterina Sforza for the first time (back in sequence 6), she did say to him that they will meet again someday. Well that someday is something I didn't expect as it was in the form of t...
Fallout 3: Mothership Zeta
If it wasn't for those cool weapons, I would've given this DLC a miss.
Gameplay: 5 (too much combat / lost opportunity with the characters that you meet / premise decent however not enough substance) Graphics: 9 (plenty of shiny stuff and great smoke effects) Sounds: 8...
Assassin's Creed II
Just like the Statue of David, it has its imperfections however it's next to nothing when playing this game.
Gameplay: 9 Graphics: 8 Sounds: 9 Value: 10 Tilt: 10 Actual score: 9.4 Assassin Creed 1 burst into the scene back in 2008 with irrefutable success. It was a world where 'nothing is true and ev...
Tomb Raider II Gold
The level designs are a little too much on the mismatch side and besides, it's two years too late.
*** This review is based only on The Golden Mask, not Tomb Raider 2 *** It's a little bit of an odd sensation that Tomb Raider 2 Gold was released when it did back in 1999. To put it into perspecti...
Dogmeat – may you rest in peace buddy and yes, your death has been avenged.
Gameplay: 8 Graphics: 8 Sounds: 10 Value: 10 Tilt: 9 Actual score: 8.9 Early in my Fallout adventures, I entered a town named 'Junktown', a name derived from because it was literally made out ...
Hitman: Codename 47
Inconsistent AI and no saves is pretty brutal. Also it plays on too much trial and error.
Gameplay: 5 (a new take on stealth as it also plays on disguise / no save options so the difficulty is ramped up to the max / inconsistent AI) Graphics: 8 (beautiful game with realistic human movemen...
