LSD IS AWESOME 0

  Cryostasis: The Sleep of Reason, and why drugs are awesome Most games just entertain me...just barely. Few have me jump, scratch my head, and yell expletives all at the same time. Cryostasis does just that. It's not necessarily a horror game, but it's definitely not your typical first person shooter.  In fact, like a lot of games coming out of Russia (STALKER and Metro), this game prides itself on looks, sound, and story. Now then, without further ado, here are the pros and cons of this game:...

The Illiad...Hell of a Book 1

Do you remember Battlefield 1942, Vietnam, 2, 2142? I sure do. Hell, 2142 wasn't the best but I still played it because the Battlefield series is the only series that actually does online multiplayer right in every way...most of the time.  Then Battlefield Bad Company came out, and it was only for the consoles. The single player was decent, coming from a developer and franchise that only does large battlefields. It's multiplayer on the other hand was abysmal...at best. So now we have Battlefiel...

Just Short of the Russian Standard 0

  STALKER COP Quick Review Let me start by saying I am an ardent fan of the S.T.A.L.K.E.R. series. With that said, it must be noted that these games are buggy and that if you suffer through it, and quick save often, then you will be delighted in not only the game play and atmosphere, but also in the story.  The same holds true for COP, however, it is not the strongest entry in the series. Either way, here are the pros and cons of COP: Pros: Less buggy of the three Refined RPG Mechanics (upgrad...

Communal Recreation 0

  Let me preface with the following: this is a quick digestible review because as a college student I do not have the time to write full blown reviews, either way, enjoy. Bioshock 2 is the sequel to Bioshock, and to be honest it's only flaw is that it's a sequel, although with that said I feel without the context of the Bioshock universe this game would fail miserably. So, what are the good things: ·          Great game mechanics, much better than the first one ·          Simplistic plasmid a...

SPEED Review: WTF! 0

Now then, this is going to be a speed review, i'll mention some good points and some bad points and then draw a conclusion.  The good-shit: -Has an awesome attitude  -Great visuals -Lots o' Loot -A great shooter, at it's core  The bad-shit: -Story? -Repetitive (includes voice over work, enemies, etc...)-Horrible ending  All in all I will say this, it wasn't great but it wasn't bad. It wasn't fun but it wasn't boring. The point is that Gearbox could have had a great new IP with this game and they...

Short Attention Span Review 0

  Ok. So I love nothing more than a well written review. I think there are some great user-reviews out there, however in the interest of people will very little time and or ADD or ADHD here are what I’m calling SPEED REVIEW: Call of Duty Modern Warfare2 The Bad: -Lack of Dedicated Servers -IWnet should use the party system and then matchmaking to match groups of people up with well performing servers -Over-the-top story, sometimes a little too much -Short campaign Did I mention the lack of Ded...

Left 4 Dead: BOOM! Headshot! 0

Short and to the Point Left 4 Dead By: mrhankey To be honest, I recently have found it hard to get very excited over a game. Seriously, Fallout 3 was, well, meh. Spore, became frustrating towards the end. S.T.A.L.K.E.R.: Clear Sky I haven’t touched since I bought it a month ago. Then Crysis Warhead, well I beat it and that’s that. So what game caused me to ignore my schoolwork and even my girlfriend at times, you guessed, the Zombie-Apocalypse survival game: Left 4 Dead. The Good: -AI Director,...

Battllefield Bad Company: You Smell Clean 0

Battlefield Bad Company: You Smell Clean                 When DICE was bought by EA most gamers predicted the end of quality. The end of a good Battlefield series. What these gamers failed to realize is two things; one, that all games have bugs and two, the Battlefield series has had the same bugs since 1942. With various releases on the console though it seemed as if the Battlefield series would never get the jump start to be a winner regardless of what they crafted. Now it seems they have a wi...

Battlefield 2 is... 3

like a drug this game takes you into global conflicts with different armies such as the USMC and MEC. One of the first things you want to before you get online and play with people on servers is play a couple of single player rounds to get your skill up. guns are fairly balanced with a definite versatility to some and unique. While you do need a fairly powerful pc to run this game it will be worth it you will be logging hours in no time and gaining ranks online. Now that the informal introduct...

F.E.A.R truly instills fear 0

When I bought this game I was sure that I would be able to play this on all high graphics. Well it did.....kind of. When I went to check the FPS I averaged 32 FPS. This was not good for me and I could tell that it would chug in huge action sequences. So you can see the only downfall I have with this game is that it is a resource hog and you need a good computer for it. Now for the real review. First thing you notice when you load the first level is that this game has a very good storyline. The ...

Oblivion 0

What can I say about a game where it has a second title of “Oblivion?” Besides the fact that it is one of the best games of all time. I was a little bit skeptical when buying the game for one reason; I had played Morrowind at a friend’s house and never did get into it. Another note was I met almost all the recommended settings. The only thing I didn’t hit was the processor speed it suggested 3 GHz I have a 2.8 Dual Core. Then as I saw previews for it I decided I would buy it. Here is my official...

the franchise that tried to be half-life 0

SiN…the modern review. Well the only reason I bought the original SiN is because I pre-purchased for SiN Episodes: Emergence for $20. With that you get SiN, SiN Multiplayer and Sin Episodes: Emergence. Also since I pre-purchased over STEAM I got it for $17. I would like to talk about this game even though I doubt anyone will read this review. One note that when I review this game I will be judging it based off of other games made in 1998 other than Half-Life. This game starts you out as John ...

Another fun Summer Game 0

Most people are saying this game is really bad and just a user mod for Half-Life 2. Well, I’m guessing most of these people went into the game thinking it was bad. I never did finish the first SiN because I didn’t like it but, this one after the first 20min it started to grow on me. I mean people buy this game give it a chance and you will have fun with it. Although word of warning, if you aren’t the best gamer in the world I would tone the difficulty down a whole lot, do this and you should be ...

Episode One of a Sequel to the Sequel 0

his game begins with an interesting cinematic that provides a lot and very little insight to the story at the same time. I won’t say what the cinematic had except for the fact it was very intriguing. I would like to say I don’t think people understand the concept of episodic content. It is supposed to be short and cheap, which I will admit $20 is a bit extensive but if you were smart you would have bought it before June 1st you would of save $2. Will now with my insult out of the way I will now ...

hold you over for the summer 0

First let me start off by saying that this review will not completely bash this game in anyway or will I completely undermine the fact that it had short comings. In all honesty this review at times will sound like Game spot’s review except I actually liked the game. Now let’s get to talking about this seven hour trip. Prey is one of the few games next to Half-Life 2 that I think has a very well thought out story. Basically you’re Tommy and you don’t really like the fact that you are Cherokee an...

World War 2 is Still Interesting 0

Around 15 to 17 hours. That is how long it will take you to beat the 15 level campaign of Company of Heroes (CoH). Either that or I make a really bad general. If you do not know what CoH is let me inform you as to what it is. It is a World War 2 Real Time Strategy Game. The makers of Dawn of War bring you Company of Heroes. The land of the brave, where soldiers die for you and French wine is abundant. Getting drunk on wine though is not the subject of this game. We have all been there before, p...

It's still for noobs.... 0

We all have seen the big black box that led us to experience seizures while killing the Covenant or the Flood. I’m sure most of us played it and enjoyed it or played it and said it was for noobs. We may have been arrogant enough to say, “Xbox sucks Gamecube is better” or “Xbox sucks PS2 is better.” Then the pc gamers will always say, “The pc is a superior game machine compared to all of them.” This is still true but the game Halo doesn’t lend itself to helping the pc’s superiority situation. Thr...

This is WW3 in action 0

War is hell, that’s what I say. War is fun, that’s what some soldiers say. War brings peace…. The list goes on forever and probably will one day include War doesn’t involve guns. Meanwhile we can use Battlefield 2142 to see what World War 3 may hold for us. Do the guns shoot laser beams instead of different calibers of bullets? Well, the answer to that is no. It seems according to DICE, the company behind the battlefield series, doesn’t think so but, the future holds many unlockables and Titians...

A Bit Short, But It's Fun 0

Last year, in the some what late fall I went out and sold my Xbox and everything I had that had to do with my Xbox. Why? I sold it all in order to purchase two much anticipated pc games; both of which I might add were well received by the gaming community. Those games were Call of Duty 2 and F.E.A.R. Have you not heard of F.E.A.R? Well then, let me tell you, “You all deserve to die.” Extraction Point is the not much anticipated expansion pack to F.E.A.R and the gaming community didn’t receive it...

Oblivion needed their Melee System 0

Most of us love shooting enemies with the Spaz-12 or the PS90 in our favorite first-person shooters such as Counter-Strike and Half-Life 2. Do we ever enjoy first-person melee combat though? Oblivion failed at providing a non-autistic form of first-person melee combat (FPM), which would lead some to believe that it couldn’t be done if Bethesda couldn’t pull of FPM. Conclusions, although decisive never really give us the truth. The truth, well Bethesda turned fighting with swords in the first per...

WTF is a Booster Pack?! 0

What is war? Is it a fallacy? More than likely not, as it is murder performed with out consequence for a just cause. When it doesn’t have a just cause, then it’s just American or some communist government on a rampage. Beyond that, war is fun, or at least on the pc it is. Battlefield has been the long running series ever since Battlefield 1942 as created. Nearly centuries after this war, DICE and EA have teamed up to predict the next war, or at least in this case an expansion of that prediction....

One that blows your mind away 0

Six long years. It took six years for GSC of Russia to turn S.T.A.L.K.E.R: Shadow of Chernobyl (referred to as stalker for the rest of this review) into a playable form. Of course there are some bugs in the game, but should we really expect any game to be bug free, even if it has been in development for six years; no. The game introduces you to your scenario with a very high quality cinematic, which exposes who your character is. Apparently you fell out of a “death truck” when it was hit by ligh...

Dystopias Are Fun 0

Every few years we get a game that truly demonstrates what art is? A game that truly shows that our medium isn’t about just entertainment and providing a creative outlet; to me that is the definition of art though. If you look at games such as System Shock 2, Half-Life 2, and the original Deus Ex those are all art. How do you collectively add everything from graphics, sound, atmosphere, and actual literary storytelling into a game though? Most people these days see it as a waste of time and noth...

Not Good, Not Bad 0

Have you ever been in a drought? Or perhaps not a drought, maybe you've experienced a flood. If so, then you know what it's like to see another World War 2 game appear on the shelves at GameStop or EB Games (which are one in the same). The genre itself, World War 2 Game, can be broken down into two types the FPS and then the RTS World War 2 Game. In both areas games struggle to be the crème of the crop or at least stand out from the rest. The FPS that stood out for me, and most, was the CoD seri...

The Cold War Can Be Fun 0

So if World War 2 isn't your thing then what war fits you? Well there is Nam', that is if you want to play a game with no real conclusion. Perhaps you'd like a throwback to those good ol' Civil War or Revolutionary War days? Nothing says a good game like Nostalgia and guns that can't hit the broad side of a barn. So what? What war is left? How about a pseudo Cold-War? Instead of it being cold and boring, ala a competition in who can spend the most money, the Soviet Union decides to invade Americ...
