A gorgeous-looking game contrasted by its ugly and unpolished gameplay basics.
- Visuals/graphics: 9/10 (excellent) - Gameplay: 6/10 (mediocre; OK) - Audio/Background Music: 8.5/10 (very good to excellent) - Story: 8/10 (very good) - Voice acting: 7/10 (OK) - Human and othe...
No cockpit view, no cigar.
I was looking forward to this game thinking that for sure the developer will this time around integrate the cockpit view in the game. Every racing/driving game nowadays that wants to be taken more ser...
Resident Evil: Revelations
With no RE5/6-type of co-op and with the very basic set of mechanics, the only thing left is the story.
Gameplay Singleplayer - 7/10 (ok) Gameplay RAID coop mode - 7/10 (ok) Graphics/video - 6/10 (disappointing) Audio - 7/10 (ok) Voice acting - 6.5/10 (cheesy but ok) Human and other models - 7/10 (...
Resident Evil 6
relatively fun game with frustrating QTEs
I've been playing this game since it came out, mostly in its online co-op mode. It sort of made impression on me as a solid *7/10* game. Some early reviewers see it as a *9* game? I replayed large sec...
Far Cry 3
In summary ... a beautiful roof on a weak foundation with shaky supporting walls
Great or close to great: - environment: 10/10 - enjoyment potential (game as a game): 10/10 - length: 10/10 - visuals/graphics: 8.5/10 (strangely this game looks better that the quality of its gra...
Tom Clancy's Ghost Recon: Future Soldier
PC version tech issues ruins the game
Frankly the game is better than a 5.5, but a vast amount of technical issues in PC version keeps this game in a dead-on-arrival category. Singleplayer gameplay is OK, but nothing extraordinary -- ...
SOCOM 4: U.S. Navy SEALs
with Playstation Networks being down, SOCOM 4 MP looks sad, while singleplayer is a mixed bag
I don't have the baggage of past SOCOMs so I didn't have any expectations of how the game should play or look like. Being primarily a PC gamer when it comes to everything but racing games, SOCOM 4 loo...
Tom Clancy's Splinter Cell: Conviction
extremist DRM makes this game almost unplayable
The truth is that the game itself is probably around 7.5 - 8.5/10, but (especially lately) this crap happens all the time: "Splinter Cell Conviction Server is not Available at this time" Ubi has...
Forza Motorsport 3
overall ... a great game that's addictive and fun
Positive: - great sounds, although it seems that the volume is higher in newer DLC packs - great graphics considering it's an xbox360 game - lots of fun and addictive - while the game is sub par c...
not an instant classic by any means, but it does offer solid entertainment
For some reason I like comparing this game to the recent NecroVisioN game -- both start as a classic WW (Necrovision is WW I and Wolfenstein WW II) games but soon after the start they depart into a f...
FlatOut: Ultimate Carnage
greatness diminished by developer's cheating AI
Negative: - unimpressive sound - severe under-steering on most vehicles (which would be OK if also the AI is affected by it ... however, the AI is *glued* to the road at any speed and in any vehicle...
ambitious open-world game that could have been a masterpiece, but ...
Lets start with negatives and/or annoyances: - release delayed several times for all platforms; PC version released a month later than other platforms (consoles) -- in the end it seems the develope...
Call of Juarez: Bound in Blood
Techland at its best ... get it!
Bound in Blood, the prequel to the first Call of Juarez, really took me by surprise by being a much better game than I expected. Frankly, I remember forcing myself to finish the first Call of Juarez ....
Rise of Flight: The First Great Air War
hardest thing about this game is to actually register it to be able to play it ... the rest is a nice WW I flight SIM
So, after a clearly miserable game launch in the US where the registration servers didn't work (see note at the bottom) finally the registration servers are up (or available most of the time) to satis...
DCS: Black Shark
definitively the best heli SIM
DCS: Black Shark is an amazing game and it's a SIM masterpiece. This game is for you if: - you like to play flight/air combat SIMs - you know what a simulator game is as opposed to a *standard* ga...
Grand Theft Auto IV
tho GTA originated on the PC platform, this is now primarily a console game ... still worth playing tho
There is no doubt that although the GTA series originated on the PC platform, it moved gradually over to consoles, and now is a primarily a console game. There are plenty of good and great moments in ...
cool but not great, and fun but repetitive and easy
I've been playing this game since close to 2 days before it officially came out. It sort of made impression on me as a solid *7/10* game. Then the early *pro* reviews start rolling in and since then t...
Race Driver: GRID
casual racers check the demo first
A gorgeous game in terms of visual enjoyment and eye candy it offers. On PC it's even better looking than on consoles. However, the graphics and smooth performance on most of gaming rigs may be the be...
Burnout Paradise: The Ultimate Box
game performance and high fun factor makes this a must have game if you have any desire to play with vehicles
Void of any story and depth, and with no history of being a PC game, Burnout Paradise sounds like a perfect formula for a perfect disaster. But then the FUN FACTOR comes in and this game wins big time...
Prince of Persia
no challenge, no cigar ... yet still addictive
There is not much to be said about this game -- it's almost perfect in many ways and then it unceremoniously fails with the big one: there is no challenge -- YOU CAN'T DIE NO MATTER HOW STUPID OR SUIC...
Tomb Raider: Underworld
too short, too easy ... but still fun
Most people will like this game -- it's very good, so disregard my opinion especially if you are a TR fan. My beef with this game is: - it's a way too easy - very short (a TR fan can do it in an a...
RF must be one of the top-grade gems of 2001 and maybe one of the top FPS games overall
Original Red Faction must be one of the top-grade gems of 2001 and maybe one of the top FPS games overall. Sure, playing it some 8 years after its release is not something that will make you go ... "w...
steampunk fans get it ... others, look elsewhere
Early xbox reviews with highly questionable taste buried this game possibly beyond recovery. Sure, Blue Omega (developer) simply can't afford huge advertising campaigns that not necessarily influence ...
this may be the most innovative game of the year ... so far
A fascinating game by three Chilean brothers whose first names initials form the word ACE ... as in the *ACE Team* comes to us via downloads at Steam and D2D for about $20 (and less than that if you ...
short and expensive ... but it has its (few) good moments
If you are a fan of the Terminator games, then by all means get it or rent it, but be aware of that this game is extremely short. Others may skip this game guilt-free altogether (till the price gets m...
a fun shooter with some massive boss fights
In 2007, when Epic/Unreal pretty much bought a Polish development studio People Can Fly (known for their Painkiller game and porting GoW to PC), a few developers from People Can Fly left and establish...
for a co-op lover among you, this is a must have
Since 2005 and through some 5 or 6 versions/updates, the free UT mod Killing Floor has been a great mod, clearly deserving a 10/10. But now, being released as its own commercial game running on a heav...
a masterpiece among the third-person tactical squad shooters
Almost six years (2003) passed since the release of Freedom Fighters and this game can still claim the top spot when it comes to the third-person tactical squad shooters. The game runs with no prob...
from Chaser (2003) many developers could learn the true meaning of a full-length PC game
It's a 6-year old game now, and comparing it to the present-day games Chaser in some parts has not aged gracefully ... but it's still playable. For play on XP SP2+ or Vista, you need to install a patc...
Wanted: Weapons of Fate
Technical problems plague this otherwise very fun third-person shooter
Quite frankly this game would deserve somewhere around 8 if it's not for very annoying technical problems. Specifically, the game crashes on Vista (haven't tried on XP) systems that meet all requireme...
lots of room for improvement, but still very satisfying stealth gameplay
Loosely based on a true story/person this game is a story-driven stealth third person tactical shooter. Of all these just mentioned words, the stealth is the key to this game. The developer (Replay St...
Exodus from the Earth
Lots of action, but somewhat boring
This is really a budget title with graphics that will remind you on games that you played 5 or 6 years ago. Yet they are not that bad (especially interiors tend to look very good and detailed) and the...
deliberate slow-paced survivalist extravaganza ... with some performance issues
Before this game gets slammed by *official* reviews that don't see much value or quality in games that are not accompanied by truckloads of ad campaigns cash, let me just quickly say ... the game has ...
The Chronicles of Riddick: Assault on Dark Athena
DRM spoils very good game
This is a good ... very good game. It's easy to immerse yourself into it and not come out for hours. If you like stealth and FPS/RPG combo, this game is for you. If you played the first Riddick (Escap...
fake widescreens ... but otherwise great entertainment
First, it must be said that if you have a strong inclination for third-person shooter you can't go wrong with buying Dark Sector -- $20 is a great deal. If a third-person shooter is something you play...
"Secret Service" is a true cheap budget title and it shows
This is the third game by Cauldron and published by the budget division of Activision that I played and the result is about same -- the developer simply fails to raise the quality and its products st...
Quantum of Solace
Fun shooter, but on the short side.
The game itself is nothing too deep. It may not even be something that screams "007", but it's a fun shooter when nothing else is available. Action is somewhat repetitive but the game runs smoothly o...
Far Cry 2
Really a far cry from the superb FarCry 1.
I takes lots of patience and persistence to classify this game as a great successor to the original FarCry game. FarCry 2 is an example of every component of the game being tight, but overall the game...
the developer/publisher failed to build up hype and excitement by missing important deadlines on all platforms
Too bad this PC version of the game was not released at the same time (2/5/08) with XBOX and PS3 versions. I guess, publishers don't realize how much they lose by not having their stuff ready by the r...
Tom Clancy's Rainbow Six Vegas 2
more of the same ... but in a good way
Originally, this PC version of R6: Vegas 2 was scheduled to be released with other platforms releases (03/18), but recently as it has become a customary awful service to PC customers the game was dela...
