    Profane Insane Arcane Fun!

    Lollipop Chainsaw

    Rated on July 24, 2013 by joeywyss

    Profane Insane Arcane Fun!

    One of the best things about the game is the script that keeps delivering its tongue in cheek dialogue insanity throughout the entire game without getting repetitive. And there are a lot of hidden zom...

    Absolute Wanton Destruction, Loved it!!!

    Quite a guilty pleasure , but sometimes I want a game where you just go around blowing up / killing stuff. Definitely one of the best download only games I've ever purchased. Although some of the char...

    Witty Carnage Mayhem and Destruction

    Epic FAIL, People Can Fly, for not continuing this excellent title. The pure joy of finding and attempting to get the skill shots makes this game a joy all by itself. A full blown dialogue throughout...

    Ended Just when it was getting good.

    Just as I was thinking "Man, I'm gonna be playing this game for weeks!"... the campaign was over. It's built to make you think there's going to be so many more side quests, races, jumps, upgrades, ve...

    Left me disappointed, sadly

    One of the few games I was willing to pay full price for the week of release, C-2 left me disappointed, as I was looking forward to a significant upgrade from the original, which I enjoyed immensely. ...

    Got A Bad Rap, Better than advertised.

    I delayed buying this game 10 times before it finally got cheap enough to splurge on, and I have to say I think the reviews were a little too rough. It has aggressive AI, multiple paths to endpoints, ...

    Precursor To What Genre Could Be

    Indigo Prophecy was my first excursion into these types of horror drama games, and this was a very fulfilling re-introduction. If you are familiar with these, then I can say the depth of the available...

    Premature infatuation... can you feel ripped off at $6.99??

    It got the atmosphere right, it got the environments right, it got the POV's right, it got the battles right, it amped up the shock values better than the sequel...aaand then it was over. Even with a ...

    How excellent not to be disappointed by a sequel to a kick-ass game. DS2, and it's fully satisfying add-on Extraction, leaves nothing behind with the original. Although the spine-chilling headphone wo...

    A Burger without the Cheese

    It's sad to say the best thing about the game was the multiple endings. What could have been immersive , intriguing , and fun is spoiled by mutton-head AI, uninspired puzzles and useless advanced weap...

    BioShock 2

    Rated on May 29, 2011 by joeywyss

    The Darker tone and better weapons make this sequel a smash.

    I enjoyed B2 because of the much darker storyline, but also because of the upgrade to the weapons/tonics/Plasmids system. Better hidden secrets, vicious AI for enemies, and a real test on how evil/goo...

    Dark Sector

    Rated on May 29, 2011 by joeywyss

    Like A good burger missing the cheese

    Dark Sector is mostly fun for when you just want to blow up and kill some stuff. It's not a bad game, it has some nice visuals, an adequate, although thin, storyline, and some worthy battles. However,...

    This seemed to be a completely different game altogether from the original. The tone, the 'affect' , the graphics, the environments, the attack, the attitude, - completely different game. Different en...

    Beautiful Violence on a Massive Scale

    Once again, GOW never fails to excite and never ever lets me down. Visually stunning, and the art direction completely relays the massive scale you're playing in , whether climbing a Titan, launching ...

    This is the first game I ever played straight through because I just had to get to the end, because the Plot was excellent, took about 12 hours straight. Then, because I was playing during 'New Years'...
