March of War
perfect example of all that is wrong with the video game industry today
so im not sure which is worse, the program and its instability, bugs and lack of any relevant information, or the gameplay which is the epitome of stripped down tactics. Add in the fact that its pay...
Strip down! Shake down! everybody get down!
so im a bit biased as I have played every shadowrun product minus the xbox game (and that doesn't count anyways). We started playing the pnp game midway through first edition and played through up un...
Company of Heroes 2
Another modern disappointment
so there are many cool things about this game, it has pretty cool graphics and a nice setting, it tries to take a lot of factors into account and tries to use some decent features, but overall when yo...
Fallout: New Vegas
this should rate lower as its way easy, but its just got so much content it rates a bit higher then normal.
so ya this game is pretty big. And while many people that i know (mostly the nubs) like fallout 3 better then this, i liked vegas myself (altho im still gunna gripe as usual). This game was done b...
This is the game im talking about when i say that these kids today will love anything.
So first off lemme say; i was one of the old fallout fans. I wasnt super hardcore but i did love the old game. It doesnt bother me that they made an fps out of the old tactical turn based system (al...
cool game, altho im on a rage hiatus atm lol.
so ya overall theres some cool things to this game but im on the fence on some of the others. overall I think it worked out pretty well, and you do get a decent sense of speed. some of the differe...
Crusader Kings II
game is certainly not lacking in depth, just never gets that bad taste out of your mouth...
so first of all the learning curve on this game is ridiculous not because its really complicated (altho it certainly has several layers) theres just very little information on the game and your left t...
Napoleon: Total War
had a hard time at first but once this game set in it turns out to be one of my favorites of the series.
so ive had this game for awhile and rewritten this reviews several times already, but i must admit that this game does have a good amount of replay ability and i do enjoy gun powder battles much more ...
Grand Theft Auto IV
still cant get it to run on 2 machines, and the 3rd has so much understeer its a cartoon fantasy land.
so ya this wont play on my laptop which has superior hardware to my tower go figure. took me forever to figure out. The tower does okay, but the physics are still pretty bad, and theres almost n...
ArmA II: Operation Arrowhead
This aint yo momma's cod.
So first off, if your going to get this game make SURE you get it on steam or one of these companies that does updates for their games automatically. If you'll notice i reviewed arma 2 and it didnt g...
old school side scroller puzzle game, but not annoying like other puzzle games, and some cool abilities thrown in.
so ya most other puzzle games bother me. They rely on timing, or stupid trial and error puzzles, and they almost never are my kind of game. Vessel has been surprisingly different. With some great...
If you've played one EA game, you know what to expect.
So i enjoyed the previous battlefield games, and i was around for the originals. This one as a game is my favorite of the bunch as well, and several things have been streamlined and rebalanced to pre...
Warhammer 40,000: Dawn of War II
just rewrote this again for the 3rd time, but the game has had 2 expansions so figure its due again.
So the game has gone through several incarnations so far. Imo it started off most fun of all, got super nerfed, and has been struggling ever since. The designers really have just been whittling aw...
X3: Terran Conflict
i had reviewed this previously but have come back to the game again. It still could have had a better rating tho
so any way you cut it this game is going to take you awhile to play. I like that in a game. I have lots of time to invest, and i like the idea of big empire spanning games that take forever to compl...
Mount & Blade: Warband
if you see a 9.0 from me, then you know theres something different with this one.
so it took me a long time to even try this one out. And even once i had i was really not into it for the first several days of game time. The graphics arent really all that impressive, and as a fp...
Red Orchestra 2: Heroes of Stalingrad
I was a fan of the first one, and there are some great improvements in this one, but bugs still hurt.
So ya i like alot of ideas the red orchestra team brings to the table. Bit slower gameplay, but longer range, and far more realistic. In these things they have still more or less succeeded, but of ...
S.T.A.L.K.E.R.: Clear Sky
The never should have made past testing, but is still one of the greater fps's around.
So ive had nothing but problems with clear sky's bugs and just overall rough design of the game (usually both at the same time), and the game still has a wicked appeal. Even when i have to go 45 mi...
Red Faction: Guerrilla
Lots to love, and lots to hate
So this game has some cool stuff going for it. The tech involved is definitely impressive, as this is i believe the first game to ever have real destructible environments instead of replacing existin...
between the bugs and the broken dice system, the game is just annoying to play.
So blood bowls tt game is hard enough to get into, but this incarnation adds some annoying bugs and broken functions to make for an even more abrasive gameplay then the original rough set of rules. ...
Some ideas from this game show just how pathetic other mmo's have been, but some ill conceived mechanics ruin this.
So at one point i had literally over a dozen of my buddies playing this game. Now only one remains, and hes running macros and exploiting the game left and right. All the rest have learned to hate t...
Alliance of Valiant Arms
These guys obviously failed their first semester at coding school.
So some companies fail so bad you wonder how they manage to remember to breathe. This company puts those people to shame. Im hoping to be re-writing this if i or my 2 other buddies can fix our probl...
Was cool at first, but not even worth the time now.
So this is another rewrite as ive gone back and tried the game out again recently. The lag seems to be improved, and now you can vote kick hackers out (altho this requires an entire room to vote ...
Well after hundreds of hours just trying to get it to work, i have to recommend 'dont buy'
So the core of this game is awesome. Its got some great ballistics, 'Some' of the vehicles are absolutely great, the tactics you can use are top notch, and subsequently the maps are very large, and e...
Hidden & Dangerous 2
So just like all these other fanatics around here, ive got to say this game is wicked.
So normally i try and wait until im done with a game or ive gone through the bulk of it. Ive played through the campaign on easy and impart way through on medium. I fully intend to run back through ...
Another one of those games they just havent quite done the same since.
So i dont know what it was about this game, but as kids my crew jumped on this game and we got more competitive then anything i can remember since. I also cant think of a game based on a movie that h...
Warcraft III: The Frozen Throne
They just dont make em like they used to.
So I complain alot around here, look at my reviews and ive probly got at least one of your favorite games i criticize heavily in some way or another. Well this is one of the games im equating those...
Star Wars TIE Fighter: Collector's CD-ROM
The coolest star wars game ever made, and imo one of the most enjoyable space flight sims of all time.
So xwing and its expansions were awesome, but Tie fighter was the game for me. The ships in the game start off as crap normal tie fighters but you work up to some of the coolest ships including the...
Just plain cool on so many levels.
This game was lengthy, had depth, was true to the game they took it from (which was the sickest rpg ever conceived after cyberpunk which was the pen and paper game that got banned), each class was ver...
Company of Heroes
Good graphics, some cool units, and some cool effects, but ai is worse then anything i can compare it to.
So i realize EVERYBODY seems to love this game. You cant even say anything about this title without someone getting in your face (online i mean). I fully expect to receive hate mail for this review...
Command & Conquer 3: Tiberium Wars
Worst rts EVA.
So this game is perfect for most kids today. Theres no tactical or strategic importance of anything. It all comes down to having the right quantities of units purchased. Thats it. I tried using ...
This was meant to bury the series not help it.
So you cant expect one of the biggest bloated and greediest companies in the industry to make a game about the evils of corporatism, and exploitation of the system on both ends. That would be a confl...
If you like dungeon keeper, this is one of the few gems made by the same guy.
i didnt find out about this game until the company was already gone, which is a tragedy imo because i love this game. Its like tropico meets dungeon keeper on a quest for world domination, or of co...
Battlefield: Bad Company 2
They added some cool new stuff, but took away too much.
So the destructible enviro is cool, its got good graphics, and a mediocre ballistic system. But even the destructible environment is kinda wack because thats all the game really is. If your in a v...
Red Orchestra: Ostfront 41-45
This game 'should' be the best of all time, but settles for 'decent.
So this game has a good ballistics system, its got a better weapon generating system and some cool maps. As far as realism goes, you most likely wont find much better. Firing a weapon in this game...
Fallen Earth: Welcome to the Apocalypse
If halo had an mmo it would be like this, but this has a decent crafting system at least.
I guess if you like unrealistic shooters where you have to dump magazine after magazine into people you might like this, or if you like wands and spells you might like this also (which this game swore...
Hitman: Blood Money
Its not for everyone, but ive always loved this sandbox stealth/shooter series.
These games can be a bit slow. You'll probably do a lot of loading and redoing the same encounters several times which can be a bit tedious. Otherwise BM is a good addition to an old great series....
Warhammer: Mark of Chaos
A perfect example of the lack of quality game manufacturers and failed support of today.
This game had a great foundation. The graphics were pretty good. It is one of the first games that displays this many units on the field at any given time, but there are problems. Many problems with...
Grand Theft Auto: Vice City
So alot of people i know didnt like this one, but i did...
So the soundtrack is all 80's kinda meh if you ask me. its also the first gta game where they went away from making their own soundtrack. I personally was a big fan of the old radio stations/songs ro...
Grand Theft Auto III
Its good to be the king.
When this game came out originally i took the week off from work and so did 2 of my buddies. I especially was an old skool gta fan, and this game was one of the few releases that not only didnt disap...
Grand Theft Auto 2
So everyone had that one game they cant put down, this was mine.
So the graphics to this game were always considered terrible even upon release, but i didnt care. You could and would commit almost every law mankind has ever written, in a zany psychopathic hilariou...
