Goodbye dark knight 0

The third and final Batman game from Rocksteady Studios is also the best of the three follow ups, including Arkham Origins which wasn't developed by Rocksteady, to the original game: Batman: Arkham Asylum. Though Asylum is still the best game in the series Knight is the closest to match its level in terms of the overall experience and it makes for a worthy end for Rocksteady's Batman trilogy. The big new addition to the game is the Batmobile and while it eventually gets fun to use it takes a whi...

The dawn of a new order 0

Before I start my review let’s just get one thing clear: I like story-driven games. In fact I love story-driven games. Even though most games have disappointing endings to their stories the question of what happens next can be one enticing carrot at the end of the stick. I also have respect for game developers that are not afraid to focus on world building and story over gameplay. That’s not because I hate gameplay, if that was the case then why would I even play video games to begin...

Go fetch! 0

Infamous: First Light centers around Abigail ”Fetch” Walker who was also in Second Son. Only this time you get to play as her. The game functions as a prequel to SS but you can easily play it even if you haven’t played the “main game” yet. The story starts out with Abigail being captured by the D.U.P. The D.U.P. is an anti-conduit military organization and they keep the conduits away from the regular people. Abigail is interviewed by the leader of D.U.P., Brooke Aug...

A tomb worth raiding 0

Despite having owned, and still owning, every generation of Playstation consoles I don’t really have any affection for the Tomb Raider franchise. Though the original game and its sequels were released on multiple platforms I have always considered Tomb Raider as a Playstation franchise, at least in its early years, but I could never get into the games back in the old PS1 days. Mostly because I hated the controls of the first TR games. Even back in the nineties I found the platforming and s...

Let's get knackered! 0

From the second Mark Cerny revealed Knack I knew exactly what to expect from it; an old school Playstation game that seemed to recreate a certain type of feel that belonged to specific PS1 platform games like Ape Escape and the original Crash Bandicoot to name a few. But just to be clear: Knack isn’t really a platform game. Knack is actually a somewhat challenging beat ‘em up that might look like a friendly kids game on the outside but don’t let the look deceive you. Knack is t...

Promising Playstation 4 debut 0

Sucker Punch makes their Playstation 4 debut with a new entry in the Infamous series. This is the third game in the series but the beginning of a new tale as we no longer plays as Cole MacGrath from the previous games. We are instead introduced to our new protagonist, or antagonist depending on your choices in the game, Delsin Rowe. Delsin is a rebellious young man that doesn’t want to follow the rules of the system. Unfortunately for Delsin his own brother, Reggie Rowe, is a sheriff and t...

Welcome back 0

Welcome back to Rapture. Bioshock 2 may not reinvent the wheel; it certainly doesn’t pack quite the same punch as its predecessor in terms of storytelling or a sense of wonder, but that doesn’t mean it’s bad in any way. The Developers made improvements where it matters the most: gameplay. As much as you may like the first Bioshock I doubt it was the gameplay that were the primary attraction. Sure the controls was functional, but the main draw has always been the setting and story. Well in Biosho...

A look back 0

This review contains spoilers for both Bioshock and Bioshock InfiniteSix years ago Bioshock was released to universal praise and went on to win several Game of the Year awards. It’s no secret that many gamers view it as a modern masterpiece especially because of its complex story and themes. Now that some time has passed and Bioshock Infinite, like its predecessor, has left most of the gaming world in awe I thought it would be fitting to take a look at the first Bioshock. Is it really the maste...

Third time's almost the charm 0

When Uncharted 2 saw the light of day back in 2009 I don’t think anybody expected it to become as big as it actually did. But it did make quite an impression on the gaming world and suddenly the stakes were higher than ever before. Could Naughty Dog do it again? Could they make another masterpiece in the action/adventure genre? In 2011 Uncharted 3: Drake’s Deception was released.Drake and Sully + a new friendNathan Drake and the gang are back and this time they are searching for the lost city of...

A masterpiece in the action/adventure genre 0

The word masterpiece gets thrown around an awful lot these days, it seems like every major triple A title on the market receives at least a good ten or fifteen absurdly good reviews. But what defines a masterpiece in the gaming world? To me it has to be a game that truly pushes the boundaries of what we thought possible to new heights. Uncharted 2: Among Thieves does just that on so many levels.When you look at the giant leap between the first and the second Uncharted, in terms of pretty much ev...

Greatness from small beginnings 0

Naughty Dog has without a doubt been one of the biggest contributors in terms of PlayStation’s success. They introduced the world to Crash Bandicoot in the nineties, arguably one of most recognized mascots of the PS1, and made a classic in Jak and Daxter, that is still acknowledged by many as one of the best PS2 games.On November 16, 2007 “Uncharted: Drake’s Fortune” for the PS3 hit the shelves. It was a completely new chapter for Naughty Dog, not just because it was on a new platform, but also ...

Hope you enjoy your stay, it might be a long one 0

Gregory Horror Show for the Playstation 2 is based on the Japanese anime of the same name, hence the game's unique look and sense of humor.In the game you play either as a boy or girl trapped in a mysterious dimension and the only way out is to capture all the souls from the other guests staying at the Gregory Hotel.Now the game can best be described as a kinda peculiar stealth game: In order to steal the souls you'll have to learn the other guests daily routines and personalities, so you get to...

Decapitatioooooooooooooooon! 0

“Brütal Legend” is a really difficult game for me to review, on one hand I love all the characters, the setting and the humor. Yes this is actually one of the very few games that are legitimately funny, which is not something I experience very often. Games that try to be funny often try to hard or else the humor is pretty stupid and not funny at all like “Death Spank”. But “Brutal Legend” just gets it right on that account. The dialogue is well written and delivered by a talented cast consisting...

The only good zombie is a dead zombie 0

In Dead Rising 2 you play as professional motor cross rider Chuck Greene. Who has been framed for setting thousands upon thousands of zombies loose in the fictional Fortune City. If all that wasn’t enough you also have a little daughter, who needs to get a shot of Zombrex every 24th hour or else she will turn into one of those brain eating monsters. Luckily Chuck Greene is a man of action, who wants to get to the bottom of the case: who framed him and why? Now you don’t actually have to so...
