    Disgusting marketing strategy, don't blow money on this!

    Saints Row IV

    Disgusting marketing strategy, don't blow money on this!

    Character customization is absolutely the best part. The introduction is fantastic. It draws you in... but then you're in a slightly modified steelport again... and the laziness of the designers is blatant. They SLACK... Read Full Review

    Spectacular! The game oozes style.

    Leisure Suit Larry: Reloaded

    Spectacular! The game oozes style.

    It fulfills what its supposed to be. The narration is excellent and really draws you into Larry's sad and lonesome world. While I miss the MIDI compositions of the original, the new music fits the game's atmosphere pr... Read Full Review

    I truly appreciate 1999 mode.

    BioShock Infinite

    I truly appreciate 1999 mode.

    Beyond the creative story and dream-like setting, I want to talk about the gameplay. Multiplayer rules videogames in this day and age. Gaming satisfaction is derived from developing distinctive skills at a particular g... Read Full Review

    Missions are just as bad as the story.

    Starcraft II: Heart of the Swarm

    Missions are just as bad as the story.

    Enough people have talked about the story. I would like to point out that the mission design is very linear and underwhelming. There is palpable laziness and lack of inspiration behind the single-player campaign. WoL sho... Read Full Review

    A few arbitrary design decisions ruin what could have been a great game.

    Dishonored

    A few arbitrary design decisions ruin what could have been a great game.

    I wonder why it wasn't a problem in the past. When they released Thief: The Dark Project more than a decade ago, here we had a game that ran on integrity, a creative vision, and innovative risk-taking. Dishonored is y... Read Full Review

    Amazing gameworld, poor execution

    Warhammer 40,000: Dawn of War II

    Amazing gameworld, poor execution

    This review is for the single-player. A game can hold my interest so long as I feel challenged. I've played WoW in the past so much that I've become allergic to gameplay that is failsafe. The moment anything starts to... Read Full Review

    Typical hand-holding modern game, no brainpower required.

    Kingdoms of Amalur: Reckoning

    Typical hand-holding modern game, no brainpower required.

    I dunno, I can't get into all these new games where they tell you exactly what to do and there is zero risk in anything involved. Games should be about problem-solving. You're confronted with a challenge and you figur... Read Full Review

    The absolute lack of refinement and innovation to this formula borders on insulting

    Might & Magic Heroes VI

    The absolute lack of refinement and innovation to this formula borders on insulting

    The designers of this game display total cowardice. V was also a rehash, but somehow it was better. This game is so uninspiring I'm appalled. Heroes of Might & Magic was a sweet formula... back in 90's. I'm amaze... Read Full Review

    Elder Scrolls has no future

    The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim

    Elder Scrolls has no future

    First of all, I'm a Daggerfall player. In my honest opinion, that was the best Elder Scrolls game. Ever since Morrowind a new designer took over and the series has gone down the drain. Never mind the high reviews; never... Read Full Review

    Dumbed-down, regressive and tragic exploitation/assassination of the AoE franchise.

    Age of Empires Online

    Dumbed-down, regressive and tragic exploitation/assassination of the AoE franchise.

    I'm honestly disgusted by designers who follow such a rigid business paradigm whilst throwing integrity out the window. It is blatant that the marketing overlords in Microsoft dictated that since WORLD OF WARCRAFT is th... Read Full Review

    Why the bad reviews? This is an excellent game.

    Wolfenstein

    Why the bad reviews? This is an excellent game.

    I was in a mood to kill Nazis, so I looked up "Return to Castle Wolfenstein" and while it was good, it felt very archaic. So I figured I'd check out the new one, in spite of the poor reviews, for a more modern shooter ... Read Full Review

    WoW clone with more technically advanced graphics, but no style.

    The Lord of the Rings Online: Shadows of Angmar

    WoW clone with more technically advanced graphics, but no style.

    Honestly I think the MMO genre as it stands, is fundamentally flawed. The gameplay of 'grind easy kills' to gain power in a very time-consuming way takes all the merit out of gaming, turning it more into a drug. People w... Read Full Review

    The RTS elements are revolutionary. PLAY IT ON BRUTAL or you won't appreciate the single player as much.

    Starcraft II: Wings of Liberty

    The RTS elements are revolutionary. PLAY IT ON BRUTAL or you won't appreciate the single player as much.

    I'm not really interested in multiplayer, but I've been slogging through the single player campaign on Brutal setting. I feel obligated to play at this difficulty to truly appreciate the strategic intricacies of this gam... Read Full Review

    Thank god for games that dare to intellectually challenge us.

    BioShock 2

    Thank god for games that dare to intellectually challenge us.

    Whenever I play Bioshock 2 I feel like I need to enter a heightened state of awareness. The game is crafted in a way that really demands appreciation. This isn't a shooter, this is art. Bioshock 2 is a movie, a story, a ... Read Full Review

    Disillusioned after 10 hours of playing.

    Dragon Age: Origins (Collector's Edition)

    Disillusioned after 10 hours of playing.

    The game starts out real hot, really makes you think there's a deep, intriguing story to unfold... But once the initial "wow" factor wears off, you realize you're playing baldur's gate or neverwinter nights. Bioware j... Read Full Review

    If you've played WoW, its impossible to play any other mmo, even if its *FREE*

    Dungeons & Dragons Online: Eberron Unlimited

    If you've played WoW, its impossible to play any other mmo, even if its *FREE*

    I figured I'd download it cause its OMGFREE. The most enjoyable part was character creation. But I'm amazed at how none of these new mmo's even try to innovate the genre. As soon as I started playing, I was forced to ... Read Full Review

    While the lore and innovation is rich, the gameplay is tedious and awkward.

    Arcanum: Of Steamworks and Magick Obscura

    While the lore and innovation is rich, the gameplay is tedious and awkward.

    As a retro gamer looking for an old RPG to play, this entertained me for a while. It has lots of fresh, innovative ideas as far as story/setting/NPC interaction, but the mechanics, combat, economy, and especially itemiza... Read Full Review

    The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion

    Boring. No character or style to this game.

    I think there's no way to rectify what I think is so fundamentally wrong with this game without hiring different personnel to make it. I played TES II that's a classic and was made by creators with a more innovative, ... Read Full Review

    cheap, boring, shooter-style gameplay fails the great writing and story. this game should have been an RPG/adventure.

    can you guys tell me what is so great about Bioshock? i got suckered in after reading the shockingly overblown reviews of the game, and now i vow never to buy things based on critics' scores again. i mean, i love the s... Read Full Review

    Command & Conquer 3: Tiberium Wars

    worst part is the tooltips that tell you what to do

    I will always like the classic C&C the best. The first GDI mission, your soldiers disembark... the badass soundtrack kicks in... the machineguns and dying screams... There was a thrill to it that could never be m... Read Full Review
