Don't worry, I'll be back with more reviews soon...
After watching the PS4 and the Xbox One battle it out over the last few months, I'm starting to miss the older systems. I've even started playing on the PS2 recently aswell! So that got me thinking, what are your favourite consoles?
Not too long ago I decided to make a list of all the FPS titles I am currently interested in. These said titles ranging from the original PlayStation all the way up to the likes of the Wii, PS4, etc. These aren't games that I have played before, just ones that I've seen and like the look of. Not all of these games aren't top quality titles or must buys either (as you'll see in the list) just games that capture my interest. So, enough rambling, let's get to the list! (NOTE: None of these screen shots are mine, they all belong to Gamespot, I am not taking any credit of these whatsoever.)
#1: GoldenEye Rogue Agent
From what I have seen, GoldenEye Rogue Agent looks like a great game to play. This might be an odd choice for the list due to the mixed reviews it has received over the years, but the remarks haven't stopped me from considering a purchase. Rogue Agent is a slightly different style of Bond game. Instead of taking things slowly and remaining undetected, you do the exact opposite by running and gunning through heavily fortified areas, using big guns and taking enemies hostage. It also provides a banging soundtrack to go with the action. In my honest opinion, this game looks like it has had effort put into it.
#2: Medal of Honor: European Assault
After enjoying both MOH: Frontline and Rising Sun, I've been thinking about getting European Assault. The game boasts better graphics and from what I've seen, more compelling gameplay. The game, as well as the previous games, takes place in the heart of World War II with you fighting as an American soldier. While I would of liked the game to have been set in a different era, you can't really go wrong with WWII games, and this game doesn't look like an exception. If I see it, I will get it.
#3: The Conduit
This is a game I've been wanting for a long, long time now. This is one of the better looking Wii-exclusive shooters available with its slick futuristic look and customizable controls and the online play. While the online was swamped by hackers, the single player campaign is great on its own. The game has received mixed reception upon its release back in 2009, but from what I remember, the game looks amazing.
#4: TimeSplitters: Future Perfect
As of now, I only own one TimeSplitters game, and that's TimeSplitters 2. I enjoyed it a lot, and I've been craving for more of it. The first one looked good, but Future perfect looks brilliant. The funny story, the online modes and of course Cortez! Ever since I got into the series I've been wanting more of it. Set in the future, you repel aliens alongside an army, stop a scientist's evil plans of world domination, and lay waste to zombies. All we need now is a fourth installment...
#5: Call of Duty: Big Red One
I'm not usually into any of the CoD games (especially any of the newer ones) but this one, to me, looks pretty good. It might feel dated compared to the likes of Black Ops and Modern Warfare, but at a cheap price, this seems worth the money. I'm currently interested in either the PlayStation 2 version or the Gamecube version, since I have both consoles. What ever system I get it on, I'd love to revisit World War II again.
#6 Metroid Prime 2: Echoes
With me being a big fan of the Metroid franchise, it's not surprising that this ended up on my list. While it may be harder than the first Prime, it looks amazing. Full of unique areas to explore, tough bosses to fight and an epic storyline to boot. This is also the first Metroid game to include a multiplayer mode. My biggest draw back is the light and dark worlds. To me, this makes the game frustrating in certain areas, and it's even worse during boss battles. Still, that little issue doesn't get in the way of the rest of the game.
#7 Medal of Honor: Heroes 2
Another Medal of Honor game, however this game focuses more on motion controls and online play. And of course WWII. This is the second MOH on the Wii. The first was Vanguard, and judging from the gameplay, this looks way better. Unlike the previous outing, this includes an online multiplayer mode with 32 player matches (so I've heard). I'm not just in it for the multiplayer though, I like the look of the campaign too, with it's realistic dark and gritty look. The only real problem with the game is that the AI isn't too great, but that's a negative I'm willing to overlook.
The game that started the critically acclaimed series off, the original Killzone looks a treat to play. Complete with an intense campaign and terrifying machinery, this is where it all began for the trilogy. This game has been rated as good as it's successor, and I can totally see why. Despite some minor graphical issues and some glitches, the game itself looks fantastic, especially when exchanging bullets with an enemy soldier. A worthy PlayStation exclusive.
#9 Rainbow Six
Despite having a low score compared to its PC counterpart, the PS1 version of this, to me, looks unique. It also seems way ahead of it's time aswell, being the only version to actually display the gun that you're using. It's also worth noting that I think using analog sticks is much better than a keyboard, but that's just me. Apart from a few cosmetic changes, it's identical to the other versions, so it isn't really worth getting if you have it on another system, but if you don't, my advice is to try it out.
The only WiiWare game on this list, and a fairly good looking one too. This reminds me somewhat of Killzone, because one of the characters looks similar to one from the original Killzone (see entry no.8). The game also has an arcadey feel to it, as you plow through bugs and rack up points. Even though it's a WiiWare title, it comes with online functionality and some meaty battles too.
So that is my FPS list. Over time, I will make newer versions of this list to keep people up to date with what is going on. If you have any games you'd like to mention, feel free to post below. Thanks for tuning in.
Well, this is rather stupid...
After trying to review FATE: Undiscovered Realms for the PC, I came across a very jarring problem when it came to publishing it, it wouldn't. I was told to select what version of the game in order to complete the review, but it wouldn't let me. There were no options to choose from. This isn't the first time I've encountered this problem. It's quite common actually, which makes it all the more annoying. If any one has any suggestions on how to overcome this mishap, please PM or leave a comment (if it will let you, that is...)
Also, I'd just like to remind everyone about the upcoming Destiny review, which will now be postponed due to this stupid glitch. Stay tuned for more reviews, blogs and news in the future.
Recently, I have decided to review a new game. It's a game that has been heavily criticized, but also well liked. Known for having beautiful graphics and superb gun play but has been slated for repetitious gameplay. Yes, I am going to review Destiny.
It's been a very talked about game for the past few months, and it's ones of those games whether you love it or hate it. From the creators of Halo and the company that brought you Call of Duty, Destiny will be reviewed soon.....very soon.
Recently, I have looked back on some of my older reviews, and I'm thinking about re-doing some of them. Mainly because they're either too short or sub par.
Recently I've decided to update some of my stacks, and I've even created two new ones.
You should really check them out if you are interested in getting some new games.
As of April 2014, the PS4 has sold 10 million consoles, which is 7 million more than the Xbox One. Wonder why that is... <Insert witty point of sarcasm here>
I'm a big Sony fan. I'm a fan of the PS2 and the PSP, but I had more Nintendo consoles than anything. Now I have decided to get the mighty PlayStation 4. I've seen it multiple times, and I have to say I really like the look of it. The system itself looks modern, with a slick design, but the controller is even better. Every button feels great, the analogue sticks, the triggers, the entire controller is amazing. The same cannot be said about the backwards compatability, there is none. There is currently no native support for the PS4.
So far I have seen some intriguing games. These include: Destiny, Minecraft, FIFA 15 and Thief. Tell me in the comments if you think these are good picks.
Yes. I actually like the game. Calm down.
Use your keyboard!
