Dishonored is more Deus Ex than Thief 0

Dishonored is a game that does a lot of things right that a lot of games do wrong. Most noticeably, it is simply a joy to control your character. He seamlessly moves through the environment at all times - whether it be under or over obstacles that would block movement in most games - but in particular, the 'blink' power is a fantastic idea that solves the problem of imprecise jumping in FPS games, and allows you to traverse long distances with ease and haste, both vertically and horizantally.The...

Many deaths await you in Spelunky 0

Death in video games is something that's very familiar to all gamers, even if survival is more prevalent than in the days of the coin-up classics. Dying (or 'dying') can often feel cheap and frustrate you – but when the situation is such that you can clearly see where you went wrong, the 'one more go' factor sets in, and you're immediately back for more. Spelunky's appeal lies in the way that you're killed by creatures or traps that you know you should have avoided. It is only the first time you...

The Terminator meets Blade Runner in one helluva fun ride 0

Let me be honest here. Binary Domain didn't impress me much at first. Mechanically, it seems like something we've seen many times before: The game is, at its core, a pretty basic Gears of War-style cover shooter. It doesn't do much to wow you, at first, with some fairly bland indoor environments and stiff animation, and a tutorial-ish part that is a bit too long.However, there's two things that I could appreciate from the get-go.First of all is how well Sega implemented hit-detection into the sh...

An emotional journey unlike any other (spoiler-free review) 0

Let me make this review short and to the point, cutting out all the unnecessary fluff - not unlike Journey itself, a game which certainly does not overstay its welcome, but instead provides an unforgettable experience that fits perfectly together from beginning till end.I do not wish to go into specifics about the controls, level layouts etc. as I believe the discovery of the game mechanics is a big part of the experience. Or at least it was for me: I went into the game not knowing what it playe...

Meet Stranger and let him be a stranger no more 0

Currently available as a downloadable HD re-release for the PC and PS3, but originally released for the Microsoft Xbox in 2005, Oddworld: Stranger's Wrath was developer Oddworld Inhabitants' attempt to move away from their platforming roots and into the popular genre of first-person shooters.They still maintained a bit of platforming, however, which is why you can also play this game from a third-person perspective when that is required. And more importantly, the signature art style and atmosphe...

Flippin' out like a Ninja 0

It is a truth universally acknowledged that a single man in possession of good fortune must be in want of a ninja’s ability to perform a somersault while flipping his blade around madly in mid-air. However little known the feelings or views of such a man may be on his first entering a neighbourhood, this truth is so well fixed in the minds of the surrounding ninjas, that his head is considered the rightful property of some or at least one of their katanas.”My dear Ninja Cop,” said his wife to hi...

It's a game about kicking, whipping and shooting 0

As far as the shooting of men genre of video games go, there are very few of these on the current crop of consoles that do not utilize the aiming down the sights/scope kind of method for shooting all the men/monsters/aliens/zombies in their ugly faces. Bulletstorm is at first glance no different: You start out with a rather ordinary assault rifle with which you start shooting men, just like in Call of Duty, Killzone and other popular shooting games that appeal to manly fantasies about weapons an...
