I am not going to spend to much time writing about this one, but it was certainly a enjoyable experience. Because it is a call of duty game not that many things have changed since the last Black Ops. One thing to keep in mind is the fact that there is no server browser. Everything is lobby based. So if you are planning on getting this just for the multiplayer you might want to keep that in mind. Also you can look at the Steam player stats to see how many people are even playing it when you read this review. The story is a lot easier to follow then the last games story line, but you still jump around in time. Going to from the future to the past. There are also side missions that you can play, but they are pretty much the same thing over and over again. Which does make it kind of boring. The quality of the PC port are ok. Nothing amazing, but they did take some time making it better for PC. All in all Black ops is worth a play, but maybe pick it up when it is on sale.
I took some screenshots while I played. Enjoy!
I meant to write this a few months ago, but things are crazy, and by that I mean I really like playing video games, but I am going to take a little break to tell you what I think of Far Cry 3.
Dead Space, a game considered to be an amazing horror game by many, but what do I think? Well people say this game is horror although jump scares don't count as horror in my book, and this game has a lot of them. There are some scary bits, but the majority of the "scary" bits are just jump scares. Now this is not to say this is a bad game, because I don't think it is. I think it is a good game that is more focused on action and shooting then horror. Sure there are weird nasty looking aliens, but they are not "scary" unless they are jumping out of no where in a dark room with loud sound effects and music to go along with it. So in short yes it is scary game with a fair story line, and some good area detail.
Stop! You Violated the LAW! By not playing Skyrim yet! This game is huge making it pretty hard to review, but I will do the best I can. After putting 125 hours in only now do I feel it is fair to review this game. Unlike all the people who play the game for 10 hours and get paid to do it. I have to play the game on my own time. I also think it is impossible to get a real feel for Skyrim in just 10 hours. So here is my 125 Hour review of Skyrim. If you have played Oblivion you will know what to expect. It has many things in common with Oblivion just polished up a bit. With more dynamic interaction. Also the Graphics and the new engine helped.
Battlefield 3 the game that aspires to be MW3 while still denying it saying that MW3 in fact is bad. Even though they don't say it out loud everyone knows that's what they are saying. So what does a game that tries to be like MW3 play like? Well I guess you will just have to read my review.
I am going to start off with the story, the core and most important component of a game "not really". For the singleplayer the game starts off fast and plays hard almost the entire game. There are only about two stealth missions in the game and they only last about ten minutes before they NPCs say F' it and pull out fully automatic assault rifles. Then you will be feed a good dose of over the top and cliché action movie scenes. Which is ok if that's what you're looking for. The whole game however is not action I am just stating the fact that a lot of the game will contain explosions over the top dialog and more twists then a Twizzler. Once I finished the game and the whole story was out on the table for me to look at. I felt as if something was missing, but it was just the fact that the OMG NUKE!!! LOOKOUT! WE MUST SAVE TEH WURLD! MY GOD! EXPLOSIONSOINS! stories are so common they have no impact. Something a bit more low key would be more interesting if you ask me. Maybe we have to break into a prison and get one guy? Just like back in COD 1? Very simple very realistic goals. All in all the story line wasn't half bad, but it also was not half good. And that is half n half... the shittiest kind of coffee known to man. So that's it. BF3 is a cup of coffee.
