  • Game of the Year 2012

    One of the most beautiful experiences of the Generation.

    Moved me to tears and inspired me all at once, brilliant game.

  • This game is very smooth, the gameplay flows very well, the platforming is effortless and fun, the puzzles are nice little pace changers, and the world and characters are likeable. Tie that all together with an amazing score by Jasper Kyd and you have a quality title. This is also the swan song of THQ and it's sad to see both the publisher go and the series fate left unknown.

    ****

  • A short but soul shattering adventure.

    The game is great from start to finish and is one of the more emotionally taxing games I played. The combat is your typical 3rd person shooter fare and can get repetitive but the visuals, music, story, characters and good game design were more then enough to keep me from wanting to stop playing.

    Gameplay wise it's a dime a dozen, but as an overall experience it's quite unique. Loved every minute of it and will stay with me long after finishing it. Awesome soundtrack as well.

  • A great follow up to Remedy's old franchise, this game has more of a Die Hard flavour to it, some will enjoy it others not so much. Personally I thought it was a great video game, and I am looking forward to what will be next in the franchise.

    I have heard about this game quite a bit and how an improvement it was over the previous games, but it's only until you actually play it that you see how true it actually is. This is one of the finest open world FPS games to date, you could say skyrim with guns but it's not enough.

    Have not finished it but it's one of those games that just going aimlessly in the world will still entertain you immensely.

    Diversity is something that I like, and there are very few games like XCOM on consoles, and the fact that the game exists on these machines and that it actually works is a godsend.

    Not a game for everybody, the game is quite slow but it makes up with a great element of strategy and amazing atmosphere. Hopefully more strategy games will come to consoles in the future.

  • One of the hidden Gems of the last generation, Binary Domain is a game with a lot of heart under the guise of a mediocre 3rd person shooter.

    The characters are good, the plot is really interesting and plays with some great ideas and it's also visually appealing thanks to great graphics and smooth animations.

    I also liked the design of most of the robots and the way the pieces fall from them as you shoot them,it makes them satisfying to fight.

    The negatives is that it's kinda repetitive and it takes a while to get things started.

  • Very sad I did't get to experience the Multiplayer as I played this far too late and the servers are closed. Even so, the single player was a blast and showed me the potential of this title quite well.

    I feel this is one of the most underrated games on the PS3. Building structures, getting into vehicles and having Ai assist and take advantage of what you build is always cool, and then jumping into a Hawk that can take off and engage in aerial dogfights is exciting as all hell.

    Wished I was there for when the game was still played by people so I can extend my playtime.

  • I was impressed at how well the console version looked and how much of a fit the game was on the system (PS3). Playing the game couch coop style for a few acts with a friend was a fun experience.

    The game is very repetitive (more noticeable then with most games) and quite mindless for the most part. By the end you are so used to mowing down waves of hellspawn that hell just doesn't seem so terrifying anymore, the easy difficulty makes it even more of a joke.

    The only one that should be feared is your Character that pretty much reaches godlike status by the end of the game with nothing really able to put up much of a challenge.

    It's a good game to turn off your brain and just mow down demons and watch your level grow while having something on in the background.

    The Story was fairly mediocre as well and didn't really care for many of the characters.

    The one saving grace is that the game makes you want to reach that next level and see what new skills you character has. It's good at making you want to waste your time.

    Definitely more fun together with friends to make a fairly boring gameplay cycle more interesting. Or if you just a power fantasy to go with your favorite podcast.

    Such a great game, Platinum games know how to make fun, solid gameplay mechanics and great action games. This is one of those games that grows on you as you keep playing, I really enjoyed my time with it and would have loved to try the multiplayer aspect of it.
