Gothic 3 has the familiar sprawling world of the previous Gothics 1 & 2, more sprawling and heavily populated than ever before in fact. It resembles the first two in look, with greatly improved graphics, but not function... Read Full Review3 of 3 users found the following review helpful
Another shooter/action-RPG, which ends up unsatisfying in both departments. ME's two strongest points are its graphics and story. The plot and characters, while well-written, are oh-so predictable if you've ever pla... Read Full Review5 of 8 users found the following review helpful
Jade Empire: Special Edition (PC GAMER)
Clive Barker's Jericho
Good game. Gameplay hasn't advanced much from Far Cry, but the graphics and physics are a healthy step up, as are the sy
Graphically, this game can be stunning, provided you can run everything at high. When you start moving the settings down to medium or low, it looks noticeably less good. When you set shadows to low and shaders to medium/... Read Full Review5 of 11 users found the following review helpful
Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare
Gears of War
An excellent game held back somewhat by an outdated engine and a few technical issues. Better than the sum of its parts.
This game caught me by surprise. I was initially expecting a rather straightforward hack and slash diabloesque clone. Instead, I ended up getting a fairly deep story-driven cRPG with plenty of dialogue and decisions to m... Read Full Review15 of 16 users found the following review helpful
Better storyline, more mature content and characters, improved level design, but same clunky/broken mechanics as the OC.
This game does better with the story and characters than the OC. It was a relief to have a more mature set of party members who actually seem to fit the D&D universe. The story, while nothing to get your heart racing... Read Full Review7 of 8 users found the following review helpful
The greatest ever? Revolutionary? No, but a solid, stylish game with more meat and depth than the vast majority of FPSs.
This review deals only with the game itself. I know that there are many problems ongoing with online activation, limiting the number of installs, server problems, etc., and the use of hidden and invasive DRM or DRM-like ... Read Full Review6 of 8 users found the following review helpful
Great atmosphere, somewhat open-ended gameplay, and a little more intelligence than the usual FPS. Some problems though.
This game is definitely an FPS, first and foremost, and the RPG elements are rather minor. You have inventory management and carry limits, you can talk to and trade with other characters, and you can take up various ques... Read Full Review1 of 1 users found the following review helpful
S.T.A.L.K.E.R.: Shadow of Chernobyl
There is very little "strategy" involved in this RTs. Trying to do anything else but mass-spam attacking with your elite units almost always ends in failure. Sending small raiding forces into the enemy base ... Read Full Review11 of 18 users found the following review helpful
Let me start off by saying that the stock AI in this game is absolute garbage. You must download this fan-made AI script found on the NWN2 Vault, right here: http://nwvault.ign.com/View.php?view=NWN2HakpaksOriginal.De... Read Full Review5 of 6 users found the following review helpful
Core gameplay remains pretty much the same as Rome, with better graphics and slight improvements to AI.
For Total War veterans, there are no surprises in this game. A few new features have been added: the ability to call crusades, papal influence and excommunication, inquisitors, princesses, priests, 'exploration' of the N... Read Full Review4 of 5 users found the following review helpful
Looks nice, but the repetitive/simplistic and painfully easy gameplay bring it all down. It's buggy too.
Even as far as Diablo wannabees go, this game fails to draw much if any interest from me. I've played Sacred/Underworld and Dungeon Siege 1/2, and while not a big fan of either of those two series, I still found them mar... Read Full Review4 of 6 users found the following review helpful
Let's be honest: Where would this game be without big-boobed bad guys and cute, foul-mouthed sidekicks? It'd be even more of a run-of-the-mill FPS than it already is. The graphics are decent, though still not on par w... Read Full Review0 of 0 users found the following review helpful
