So someone put a gun to my smiley lamp and forced me to buy a early access game. 23 hours played so far so is was not a total waste of money. Like many other open world survival games it does not take long to hit the end. Food, gun, house and you are surviving. So play with friends and make your own challenge It's like a zombie film, it's your stupid friends that forget to lock the door that make your life fun. Also, shoot all dogs. Zombie dogs are evil.
Third-person horror games with a good narrative, pacing and atmosphere. The games takes place in the fictional town of Bright Falls where a form of darkness takes over humans, animals and objects. All those taken by the darkness are impervious to attacks until they have been exposed to light that burns the darkness away. So in the game you are safe in the light and besides guns you also arm yourself with flashlights and flare guns.
In this game there are three different campaign. One each for Colonial Marines, Predators and aliens. The alien is the most fun one and it feels good to crawl around in the roof and drop down on the defenceless humans as they scream in fear. To bad that the game is so short as it only contain the standard number of first person shooter levels split in three parts.
Nice but stupid AI on the marines really destroy the game. It's no fun to stalk the humans as a alien when they are to stupid to even notice that someone dies right in front of them. Then when you play as human you have to suffer with them repeating the same stupid line of dialogue the whole game. The three way story do not really work that well also, minor point really but when you play the whole games it would be nice for it to be good.
Action/adventure that puts you in the role of detective Edward Carnby that spend his time exploring deserted places that always turn up not be deserted at all. In this sequel it is a western ghost town and you go around, collect things for puzzle and shoot at things that you can't see thanks to the stupid static so called cinematic camera.
Horror game that takes place in 1899 and is set in the same universe as Amnesia: The Dark Descent. Explore your own house in London to find your children and stop the machine that is starting up somewhere deep below.
Horror game where you explore a castle and solve puzzles. The only defense against the the monsters is to hide in a dark corner. The down side of this is that your sanity drains by being in the dark so you can not sneak around all the time. Looking at monsters also drive you crazy. This game is almost to scary to play.
Side-scrolling adventure game where your avatar is transported to another world and you need to try to survive in it. Not much guidelines so you really have to guess what to do next and die and try again. Art style might be fun in 91 but all that is left now is a boring game.
Fly the AH-64 Apache helicopter in a number of combat theatres and fight against tanks, planes and other helicopters. Supported co-op multi player also where you could fly in the same helicopter as pilot and gunner.
Bohemia's follow up on Operation Flashpoint. This game is really worthless and it seems like they have done nothing in the six years since the last game. The game is close to unplayable with worthless AI, mission system that seems to fail more often then it works and a player control system that puts a brick wall of problems between the input you give and the actions of your character. In each mission you can look forward to the following three things, 1: Any transport you get in is driven by the most stupid soldier present in the whole army at that time, 2: Each time you try to use anything in the world you will hate the designer of the game, 3: Once every minute one of your soldiers will shout 'where are you'. My hopes for Carrier Command: Gaea Mission is really low after this game :|
This is a game that try to be Ultima Underworld and fails. Linear with no dialoge options and on top of that a user interface that makes less sense then the one in System Shock. The magic system looks fun until you try to use it. You have to draw runes with the mouse to cast spells and it feels like a bad ipad game ten years before anyone know what a ipad was. All i really needed to use was the fireball spell that worked well is the Win button in all combat scenarios. And that was a good thing as the combat was not fun anyway.
Cool game with a great game world where you run around the streets of towns in the 10'Th centenary trying to kill people for your master. The game quickly gets repetitive as there is not much change in each town but the the things that are in the game work good with you stabbing someone and then escaping the town with guards chasing you.
Final game where one plays Ezio as he explore Constantinople trying to find the clues to enter Altair's secret vault in Masyaf. One also gets to play as Altair in the 13th century and Desmond in the 21st century but Ezio still stands out as the best and most fun character. Gameplay is nice and Constantinople is fun to explore and so is the story about Ezio. The overall story is still a total clusterfuck where it keeps folding onto itself to be able to drag on into more games. As a final note i think that all the people that wrote the Altair story part need to be fired as they turned him into a useless crybaby.
This game is set in the 15th century in Italy. You play as Ezio who becomes an Assassin after his father are murdered. You get a mansion, buy things for it as you get richer and kill of all those that had any part of your fathers death. Great fun and nice game world.
First-person shooter action game that take place at the time of the second world war. In each battle the goal is to capture and hold more control points then the enemy and make him run out of supplies first. There are four theatres of operations in the game, Pacific , North Africa , Eastern Europe and Western Europe. Each theatre have a number of battlefields and you get the chance to play both Germany, USA, Japan, UK and Russia.
In the game you can drive tanks, boats and also fly planes. Not a realistic simulation but fun. You also get to pick your infantry class each time you respawn in the game and you can choose to be a scout, assault, anti-tank, medic or engineer.
Second part in the Battlefield series. Modern weapons and vehicles are used in the game so you can now drive around in a M1A2 tank and fly around in a F/A-18 Hornet if you feel like it. There are seven classes in the game: assault, snipers, spec ops, engineers, medics, support and anti-tank and it is possible to form groups with other players so you can work as a team more easily. One player can act as the commander and can order all the groups around on the map and also use commander assets like satellites and artillery to find and destroy the enemy. Extra fun game when you find yourself in a good squad with good teamwork.
Battlefield set in the year 2142 with two factions fighting each other over the last life supporting places on the earth. It does not feel that different from Battlefield 2 so I think I keep playing Battlefield 2 until something better shows up.
Expansion to battlefield 2 were you take the role of some special forces around the world. Some new maps and each class now also have a new ability like grappling hook for the assault class. Still battlefield 2 so not really that much different.
Battlefield and now with a single player section. You spend most of the time in the single player game running behind someone from one piece of scenery to another. The story is told well but it is something about nukes as always. The sad part is that you really do not get to drive or fly that much and when you do it scripted to death. I enjoyed the Russians missions the most as they had such a pessimistic view of it all :)
After a step up in Battlefield 3 the single player is back at worthless levels again. So bad in fact that the thing that i compare this game to is Aliens Colonial marines. I'm running around with my annoying squad and i can't count the number of times i wished i could just shoot them and play alone. This game must have been written by writers of the retard school of 'everything is a conflict' and the team members can not say two words to each other without screaming about it. They are also window dressing as they can not be killed and are ignored by the enemy. So when i sneak around in the level they are standing beside the tank Iím trying to avoid. Immersion gets it in the face in this game. One of the few positive things with the single player was that it only crashed on me one time in the seven hours it took to play it. Multiplayer is more unstable and crashes and other bugs are not uncommon. Battlefield 4 feels and plays as Battlefield 3 so it is better to just play Battlefield 3 some more.
This is a adventure game were the player character is a victim of some bio-mechanical experimentation and wakes up in a prison cell with body parts of metal. No memory of his past and the goal is to flee the cell he is in and find out were he is.
This game has the same problem as all other games with the same type of fixed camera view of each room, whatever you do you can rest assured that the camera view show you something else then you would like to look at. The end of this game is also very bad and you feel like they were planning for a sequel but failed to make one.
In the third Bioshock game we leave the water and travel to the airborne city of Columbia. Nice city, crazy people and weapons everywhere. Gameplay wise i enjoyed the use of the skyrail to travel between the parts of the city. I did not use the vigor powers that much and i missed the ability to carry more then two weapons. The story of the game was fun also. I did notice complains about the violence in reviews before i played the game and a few of them said that it's a disconnect between to story and the gameplay. I did not find that at all so i wonder if they played another game then me. Yes, the combat is violent and the setting is brutal and unforgiving but the violence is also a core element of the story. They should try to spend more time then a coffe break thinking about the game before they started to write their opinion piece. Time to add them my game reviewer ignore list while the DLC's are downloading.
In this game you play as Rayne, a Dhampir (a form of vampire) that work for the secret Brimstone Society and hunt down and kill supernatural threats to humanity. Not that she care much for humanity, her main goal is to track down and kill her father. The game is played in third person view and both close combat and firearms are used to hunt down and kill the enemy. Health is restored by feeding on blood of the living and she have some special vision modes like one that slows down time like in the matrix movies.
This game takes place in present times and our Dhampir friend once more slash, shoot and feed our way past hordes of meatbags. The game now takes place in a city and Rayne can now swing around and climb poles so there is some good acrobatic exercise in this game. She are now hunting down and killing her fathers evil offspring, her siblings. They have formed the Cult of Kagan and have created The Shroud , a doomsday device that will make the suns rays harmless to vampires.
Physic-based puzzle game where you navigate your ship through each level trying to collect more parts for your ship and find the exit. The ship is shaped like a ball with eight ports for extensions such as thrusters and beams to carry things. Each extension can be assigned a key so it is possible to have some extra thruster fire only when the tractor beam is active. Each puzzle is a chance to build another ship configuration and try a new way to solve things.
First-person shooter role playing game that supports co-op play. You pick one of four character classes to play and then you explore the world, collect weapons and kill people that try to kill you. Real nice art style in this game.
Some years after the events in Borderlands a new group of characters explore the world of Pandora. The original cast are now in supporting roles as non playable characters and i really like the story and setting. Gameplay is like the first game and it is all about the Loot. There is always a better gun or shield waiting for you to be find in the next battle.
Platform game that mix it up a lot with time. The basic function is that you can rewind time whenever you wish, even all the way to the start of the level. As the game progress then there are items that don't rewind with you or act otherwise different when you rewind and it all turns into advanced puzzles to solve.
Puzzle game where you control two characters at the same time. Each one has it's own thumbstick and use button. Really simple puzzles where you open doors, carry things or climb around. Gameplay gets thin fast but works as the game is not that long, less then 3 hours for me and the world is cool enough to keep playing for that time. The land of the dead giants was a great level.
First-person horror game set in the Lovecraft universe. Stupid save point system where you will spend time replaying long sequences filled with cut scenes that you can't skip. The game is based on the novel The Shadow Over Innsmouth and the story is not bad but the bugs and replay section really bring it down.
First-person shooter that puts you in the boots of a infantry soldiers in World War II. Uncommon for many other games of the same time you played each mission with the help of your computer controlled allies. Most missions are linear and simple so most of the time they act as cannon fodder and you need to complete most of the mission objectives on your own. There are three campaigns, the American, British and the Soviet one and you play a different soldier in each one.
Second game in the Call of Duty World War II series of games and once again with three campaigns to play, Russian, English and American. There is no choices to talk about in this game and you walk along the pre set path and and face up to the scripted sequences in the game. The game is mostly about moving forward towards the enemy as a simple grunt in a group of and shooting at everything. You also get the chance to drive some tanks for a change of scenery but as it takes place in the desert it s not much to look at anyway .The game can also be played in multi player but still no coop. There is a team game mode by the name of headquarters were you capture a control point and then defend it. It was a bit nice but the rest is the same old death match and capture the flag. There are also a fun death cam were you see the kill from they eyes of the one that killed you.
Call of Duty series moves of into the modern day with this game. You play is first-persopn view most of the time and you switch between and number of characters to take part of all the events in the campaign. The story is the stupid hogwash one expects from something that takes many cool scenes and then try to string them together
One common activity in classic adventure games was pixelhunting. It is when you sit and click with the mouse all over the screen trying to find something you can interact with. Not the most fun way to play a game and I'm not sad that we have lost that part of gaming. So you can imagine my surprise when i find myself doing it again in Call of duty: Black Ops, a game from 2011. Well to be honest I'm not really hunting pixels but the activity is as fun. What I'm trying to do is to follow orders so i can progress in the game. I need to do it in the precise way the developers designed it to be done. If i take one step of the given path, stand still half a second to long or fail to stack up to the correct door the mission fails. And my only guide is a npc to follow and once every 15 seconds someone scream at me what to do next. Stand there, shoot them, pick up rocketlauncher, shoot helicopter, reload, down the foxhole, look at shitty cutscene and shoot some more. I hate this game. It's a stupid rail shooter where the rail is invisible.
Second part of the Modern Warfare series and the story is so bad and over the top that the only sane thing is to ignore it and never talk about it again. The gameplay is otherwise still the same with many cool scenes and events that you get to enjoy and the most epic thing of all is the Special Ops missions that can be played in co-op with another player.
Cool scenes and a stupid story to tie them together is still the rule for these games so try to ignore it and just play. So the Russians sailed a submarine into the east river and we now need to hijack it. Why not, give me a gun and a flag and off we go.
World War II again in Call of Duty but a bit more open-ended this time with more ways to do each missions. The major important change is the support for co-op multiplayer with up to four players in campaign and that alone makes the game a whole lot more epic.
A very educational game were you can learn the wrong way to behave in traffic and also good as relaxation for those that have a thing against pedestrians. The game is like the movie Death Race 2000 were you get cash for killing pedestrians and destroying your opponents cars. You use that money to upgrade your car and you can also win the opponents cars after a race. Extra bonus cash is also given for such things as 'insane stunt bonus' and 'splatter bonus'. On each level there are also a lot of power ups such as time bonus, turbo, wall climber and pinball mode. You can win each race in three ways, by completing the track, by destroying all you opponents or by killing a enough pedestrians.
Expansion for Carmageddon. Not that good as the first one as they tried to make the levels a bit more weird Spending two minutes to get back up from the water after falling down does not improve the game. The focus should be on ramming into each other at high speed instead of trying to find each other.
Strategy game for all those power mad people. You control a civilization and need to guide it from the dawn of time at 3000 B.C to to the stars. The game is turn based and take place on a map view of the game world were you see your towns and units. You need to select what city improvements to to build in each town and also build now towns to expand your empire. There are six other civilization besides your own and you can handle them with war or diplomacy. Combat is simple and you only have to move a unit onto a enemy and are then informed about the outcome of the battle.
Action horror game where you as U.S. Coast guard respond to a distress signal on a Russian cargo ship and it does not take long for the mad mercenaries and zombie like creatures to attack. It only takes a little longer for you to grow tire of the camera and aiming system and the stupid save points.
Play as a GDI grunt in the C&C world and fight against the evil NOD and Kane. A straight first person shooter where you also can control some tanks and cars. Big selection of weapons and some of them are a bit fun. AI is really bad and on the levels where you have to escort someone you really feel like punching someone in the face. The AI runs away before you to preset points and then simply stand beside the enemy like a idiot and die in a hail of bullets.
Once more the counter-terrorists and terrorists try to kill each other. The levels you can play are Dust 2 and some other levels that are not Dust 2. If you vote for anything else then Dust 2 you are a Noob. I was a noob for two hours until i got my first kill then i started to vote on Dust 2 like everyone else. In total of four hours playing i manage to get 12 kills total. It's less then the average time a counter-strike player spend on Dust 2 each day :). Grinding that much is not for me so i think i skip this game.
Multi player only game with two teams, the terrorists and the counter-terrorists. At the start of each round all members of a team spawn in their buy zone were they can use the money they have to buy weapons. You gain money by killing the enemy and completing the goals of your team.
You play a super soldier sent to stop a korean invasion that turn out to be a alien invasion. Nice island to walk around in and like crysis the game is the most fun while you don't have to fight the stupid alien/zombie/mutants/whatever.
Super soldier time again. Cryris 3 is like the settings of Crysis and Crysis 2 merged into one game. Run around in a destroyed version of New york with trees, evil soldiers and aliens. Suit can be switched between Ďi shoot thingsí and Ďi sneak around modeí. Gameplay was a bit meh to me.
Action game where you take the role of of the Dark Messiah, a half human, half demon with the power to save to world or destroy it. Some simple role playing elements in it also were you can pick skills along three paths, combat, stealth and magic. Many times you can use things in to world to kill the enemy like pulling down barrels onto them or kicking them into a spiked wall. Most of the time it only look stupid and staged with the enemy's standing below huge unstable structure like idiots and waiting for them to fall if a gust of wind removes the small rope that keeps it all up.
After flying into the Bermuda triangle you get teleported into another world where evil aliens plan to take over earth. You get a jetpack that allows you to switch between on-foot and air combat and it also makes it possible to fly up and take over the enemy flyers in the air. Flying them is fun but stealing them is not as the hand of Capcom has added quick-time-events all over the place. Game feels half completed in some areas and that seen mostly in the story that skip over some major events.
Instead of fixing the bugs and problems in the first Dead Island they made a new game and this is not a worthy sequel. You can drive a boat now but it is slow and they get stuck everywhere You can defend your base at sections in the story and enjoy the worthless help of the non player characters. All in all a really low score and halfway into the game i noticed the spawning of enemies right beside me and that i do not accept in a zombie game.
Third-person survival horror game where you play a engineer sent to fix some technical problems on the planet-cracker space ship Ishimura. Technical problems in this case is aliens, crewmen that rise from the dead and fanatics that think that death is a doorway to a better life. Environments are great ( fun zero gravity areas), game play is nice, controls are annoying and the story is linear and as predictable as a Friday the 13th movie.
Looks good and it try to focus on the story but it really fails at it. You walk around painfully slow and look at the environment and listen to the narrator that try to fit as many metaphors as possible into each sentence. There is no way to interact at all so you can not really do anything else so for something that sole focus is the story it does not really deliver. The whole thing takes less then a hour and the major part of it is thanks to the really slow walking pace and the dead ends that contain nothing. In short it feels like the developer has taken a badly written short novel and turned it into a walk through experience.
Tactical first-person shooter that uses voxel based rendering that makes it look a bit different from other games. It provided long view distance of the world compared to many games of the time so sniper rifles was fun in this game.
Action game were you fly a space ship into robotic infested mines to save any survivors and to destroy the main reactor. When the reactor is explodes it will destroy the whole mine so you need to race to the exit. The game uses its 3D environment to the maximum. Tunnels go in all directions and robots can attack from any of them so it s important to have a good situational awareness. The ships is armed with primary (lasers) and secondary (missiles) weapons and they are upgraded as the game progress. Co-operative play is great fun and I played the whole game with four players in co-operative.
Nice follow-up on Descent. The two most annoying things in this game is the thief (steal all my cool weapons) and the guide bot. The guide bot is on the players side but it always keep shooting me to tell me I'm going the wrong way. Like you would drive somewhere and give your wife a flare gun so she can alert you when she thinks your are going the wrong way. Double amount of weapons also as each weapon slot now contain two weapons :).
This is a first person action game with role playing elements. You take the role of JC Denton, a anti-terrorist agent that travel the globe and try to find out the truth behind a evil conspiracy. It all takes place in a dark future around 2050.Your character have skills such as lock picking, swimming and some weapon skills and all skill start at the untrained level. Augmentations are another thing you can use to change your character and they give you ability s such as cloak and targeting systems. It s not possible to have all augmentations or master level in all skills so you need to choose the ones that fit your playing style.When you play you have to choose what sides to support in the game and who to thrust. There are some different endings in the game but that don t really matter that much.
Arcade action game were you hack your way down a dungeon to kill Diablo. You can choose to play one of the three classes of warrior, rogue and sorcerer. All levels in the game are random generated so it s different each time you play.
This game continues the story from the first game and Diablo escapade the town of Tristram and are now free in the world. Your character follows him in a quest to stop and kill him. The game takes place in four acts and for each act there is a cut scene movie that moves the story forward. This time there are five available classes to pick from: Amazon, Barbarian, Necromancer, Paladin and Sorceress. Each class have their own set of skills they can use, around 30 skills/class and you gain on skill point each level. The more skill points you put in a skill the better it gets.
The devil that refuse to die is back. Explore a slightly random world for loot and use it to stab him. Then when he is dead play the expansion reaper of souls and kill death. So I did and i was bored most of the time.
Once again a brave hero have lost his true love and need to go down the deep dungeons to rescue her from a ritual sacrifice. By this time one could think that all heroes should have learned their lesson and stayed home more as everyone's goal in life seems to steal their loved ones.We see our brave knight from a third person view as he hacks away at the ones that stand in his way. Not much more happens in this game as it's all about chopping the heads of monsters with your sword. The swords can be controlled by a system were you use the mouse to swing it but it's almost impossible to hit anything and rather then looking like a swordsman you die by the sword of the enemy if you try it. Can also be played in multiplayer but only with the same old death match like every other game.
Take the role of Corvo, the Empress's legendary bodyguard that have been framed for her murder. Seeking revenge on those who conspired against him Corvo start to work for the Loyalists, a resistance group that try the put the Empress daughter back on the throne. The game is split up into ten missions and each mission have a goal and there are many ways to reach it. The ways to solve any problems is often a choice between stealth or action. With stealth you sneak in and knock people out and hide the bodies. If you chose the action way you stab them in the neck and drop the still bleeding body in front of their friends. Besides your sword you have a gun, a crossbow and also magical abilities. You gain more powers as the game progress. The graphical style in the game is also great. Whatever. Play it. Now.
Mother of all First person shooters (ok, wolfenstien was first but it was boring). In this game you are stuck on one of the moons on Mars guarding the geeks that work there and then a experiment goes wrong (like they always do) and the portal to hell opens up and demons attack and rip your friends apart. You need to slay the hordes of hell and stop them. Fun both in single and multiplayer, co-operative rules . Coolest weapon must have been the plasma gun and the chainsaw, I like the idea that they had any use of a chainsaw in space :)
Doom was action and Doom 3 try to be a horror game. But it does not work as everything is so predictable that one almost fall asleep. Every monsters stands where you think it will and the only horror is when you walk to the next level and see that it is the same sci-fi labs environment as the last one. There are max three monsters at once and the first time you meet a new monster they break the flow with a worthless cut-scene to show it off. Doom I and II are great games and Doom 3 does not deserve to use the same name.
This is a basic Doom 3 expansion without any real value. All bad things on Doom 3 still apply and they also added a new weapon that works the same as the Gravity Gun in half life 2. There is not much use for it as so few things in Doom 3 can be interacted with.
Worthless camera angles makes the game unplayable and the stupid cutscene each time you move to a new area don t make it any better. Stupid gameplay also were you run around like a errand boy and help people with to most simple tasks and the dragons only act as some form of teleporter taxis. Burn the cd and move along please.
In this action-adventure game the player takes the role of Rynn, a woman that searches for her brother that have been kidnapped by a evil sorcerer. She takes the help of the dragon Arokh and the game takes place both on the ground and in the air with Rynn riding Arokh. Nice landscapes and fun monsters but bad story.
Take to role of Duke Nukem and kill aliens, pig cops and save the babes. Unlike to rest of the faceless heroes of other first person shooters Duke is a one man show on his own and drop one-liners as often as he drops aliens. In the game you go around the levels and kill of more or less anyone that look at you except some babes. To help you with that you have a guns, big guns and guns that shrink the enemy or freeze them so you can kick them into ice shards. All in all a great game and keep in mind that if they aliens try to take our babes the aliens need to die.
This was one of the first real-time strategy games. The game takes place on the planet Arrakis were three houses, Atreides, Ordos and Harkonnen are fighting for the control of the spice melange. To gather spice you send out your harvesters and then you use the spice to get money and build your base so you can destroy you enemy. Each house have their own weapons and tactics and building a defence tower inside the enemy base is always fun.
This is all about stuff that are better then the stuff you already have. The story of the game is something about something evil somewhere doing something evil and you and your epic heroes need to travel the world, killing everything until all the evildoers are dead. In short, don t worry about it and play to get more stuff.
Run around in a city and try to avoiding the brain eaters. Like the past zombie game from Thechland the focus is on melee weapons but this time you can also climb and jump between buildings. Not many zombies can climb but to get the good stuff you need to get down on the ground and inside buildings. Good game, some boss battles i hate but i hate them in all games.
Strategy game where you start with a city and your goal is to produce armies and use them to take over the whole world. It's a modern day war with only a few types of units so you need to think about what unit to use against what. The graphic is as simple and easy on the eyes as you zone out thinking about the move you will make.
Medieval style hack/slash game. Two campaigns to play, light and dark. As always more fun to play the dark side . Some of the levels are really nice and you can still hear the silent scream of a role playing game in some places.
First-person team-oriented game in the same world as Quake 4. Two teams in the form of the Humans and the Strogg battle each other on a number of maps and you need to complete mission objectives on each map for your side to win. You get to choose what class your character is and that modify the weapons and abilitys you have.
Expansion to Fear where the story pick ups right after the end of the original game. Still the same problems as before with to much reuse of the same events time after time and it s not long before you sleep you way through another the-ring-girl-in-dark-corridor-approaching sequence. There is really no fear in this game but it rather feels like a bad mix of doom 3 and the movie the Ring.
Not much fear in this game as the name might make you believe There are some fun things like flashbacks and ghost images but not much of it is put to good use so once again you find yourself running around shooting at things in the same hallways as always
More hallways and store rooms with huge fire fights and still not much in the way of fear. The level designers for the game need basic training in learning to place triggers, I spent most of the games trying to see the things I was supposed to see each time there was a spooky sound but I more or less missed them all. It's like a game that can't choose if it would like to be action or horror and so it does not it any high on any of them.
More misplaced triggers and not much more. The writer of the story must be be paid by the number of lines as people talk on with nothing to say. Possible to replay the game with another character but i hated him the first time i played so why suffer more.
Action role-playing game where you play on earth after it has been hit by a nuclear apocalypse. You play in and around the ruins of Washington D.C and your are searching for your father. Great game :).
DLC Operation Anchorage:
DLC The Pitt:
DLC Broken Steel:
DLC Point Lookout:
DLC Mothership Zeta:
This game takes place on some paradise islands were you, the hero in a red shirt have taken your boat with a nice girl when someone choose to blow your boat to small parts. The only response is to get all the guns you can and kill them all . The great thing about this game is the nice environment setting with a green island with a nice blue water were you can walk around and almost feel like you are there on a vacation, if you ignore the fact that there are people with guns trying to kill you . It gets more boring when you get inside and face up to the clich? indoor first-person shooter kill evil mutant Nazis gameplay but you simply have to push on to the next outdoor section
Space combat/trader game like Privateer. The story is about you being one of the few survivors from space station destroyed by a unknown enemy force. The goal is for you to find out who they are, what they want and why all people you meet would like to kill you to get the strange alien artefact you have found. The ship is controlled by the mouse in this game and it works nice with your ships weapon turning and shooting towards your mouse pointer. Space combat is a bit simple with keys to heal shields and ship hull, almost like health and mana in a role playing games.
First-person shooter where the whole world has fallen apart and from lack of oil and now the two factions left battle it out for the last few barrels. More of a multi player game really but it also has a single player campaign. Nice cut scenes and the game contains many strange gadgets the classes in the game can use.
Drive around and do the crime without the time in Liberty City. You take to role of Claude that was set-up by his past partners his crime and after a lucky escape from the law it is time to get the cash back, the guns in the trunk and to start watch the body count go up.
Be a cool gangsta, fight for respect, live for the bling bling and most importantly die for the hood. Game world is huge and it s made up of three towns, Los Santos, San Fierro and Las Venturas. The story is that you return to the town for a funeral after being away for to long and you find your hood have lost all respect and your brothers are the joke of the town. The only real thing to to is to get it back and you battle it out against to other gangs. Great fun and cool characters in the game but your brothers are stupid bastards and you often feel like you would shoot them in the head to make them shut up. Artificial Intelligence is also a bit bad when you move around town with you gang
In this game we get a chance to play Tommy Vercetti, a low level bad guy that fails a simple drug deal in Vice City and need to get the cash and dope back before his boss gets to angry. It s a slow raise to power as you drive around the town and do small crimes to get more cash and power to finally take on the big bosses in town and put yourself on top. Great 80 s music and style in this game and you simply drive around and enjoy the town on your motorcycle. Steal cars, motorcycles, boats, helicopters and listen to good music while you do it.
In Half-life you play Gordon Freeman, a new employ at the Black Mesa research facility. Like always the experiment goes wrong and portal is open to another world and monsters attack. Our hero picks up some guns and the game turn into a very nice first person shooter. Overall a great game but with some sections a bit to long. The end is also long and boring.
Gordon Freeman is back and now the aliens have invaded earth. The game takes place in and around City 17, a city controlled by the invading forces and besides running and shooting you also get the chance to drive a boat and a car. The game has the same problem as Half-Life with areas were they run the same idea for to long and it grows tiresome. The story is also bad, it feels like a movie with some good action scenes that don t really fit together that well.
Second episode from Half-Life 2 and this time you are outside the city trying to get to a resistance base called White Forest. You get a car in this episode and spends a lot more time in open terrain driving around.
First-person shooter where you drive and walk around in the same areas over and over again and shoot the same strange little gnome like creatures. You take the role of a super soldier called Master Chief that after a desperate escape from evil aliens fall out of hyperspace beside the a mystical ring in space, the Halo. The aliens with the name of The Coventant also drop by and then it turns into a minor war on and about the control of the Halo and to find out what it does.
Gameplay is like in most other first-person shooter but this game was the one that really get that regenerating shield/health thing stated where you simply take cover for a while to recharge it.
Grand strategy wargame where you can control any nation that existed during 1936-1948. Control the production, research, armed forces and many other things as you try to make sure your nation gets the most of the war. Always fun to rule the world and to play what if :).
First-person fantasy shooter with three episodes that you can play in any order. Each level is simply about finding the exit and to kill anything that stands in the way and your goal in the end is to destroy one of the serpent riders namned D'Sparil.
Final chapter in the story of the Serpent riders from Heretic/Hexen and this time it's the last one, Eidolon that need to die. Four character classes to choose from this time as you kill all the minions first then hunt down Eidolon.
The story continues from Heretic and now in another world with the serpent rider Korax that need to die. This time you get to choose to play one of three characters at the start of game and each one has his own unique weapons and ability?s The game also use a hub system where you travel between many of the levels many times solving puzzles so it's not the straight find the exit gameplay of Heretic.
Fun soldier game in WW2 and also winner of most crashes / hour award. Looks like the only tested to first levels in the game as the game crash more and more at the end. The gameplay was cool anyway with fun and varied levels.
Our bald hero has retired from the hard and stressful life as an assassin and are now spends his days working as a gardener at a church. All is well until the priest is kidnapped. 47 contacts his old employer to find the priest and to pay for the hunt he also takes some missions. The gameplay works in large part like the last game, controls are better now and it is more easy to choose the violent path. It is also possible to collect weapons in the missions so you can use the following missions. All your weapons are kept in a small house in your base and you can go there between mission to try them out.
In this game one gets the chance to play a hitman. It was much better than i thought it would be even if the game had is problem. The nice thing is the many different ways to kill your targets besides running in with all guns blazing. For example, put poison in their food or add a bomb to their car. The story of the game is centred around our hitman finding out were he is from and what the bar code in his neck is all about.
47 have been wounded and are lying on the floor dying and looks as his life flash by before him. It takes the form of some of the mission he has done in his life and you get the chance to play them. It s is mix of different mission both new ones and some modified ones from the original hitman game. Some of the remade missions are fun but often it only feels boring the play the same missions as you did in the first game. Not really that different from Hitman 2 but more of a expansion pack with new (and old) missions.
Wuxia style action role-playing game in a setting inspired by ancient China. The gameplay is a lot like Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic but the thing that sinks this game for me is the simplistic battle system. In a setting where ancient masters are everywhere and people fight each other to say hello there need to be more to it then skills named after animals.
I'm always impressive when someone puts their own name in the title of something that they have done, must be when you are Really proud of the thing. This game is a first-person shooter where you travel in time using magical sword called the Daikatana. You do it to change the history of the world and in the process you visit a number of different time periods. All in all not much to write home about in this game until you get to enjoy the computer controlled sidekicks that 'help' you with your mission. These retards are my main reason to hate this game, the blurb on the box tell me they have 'superior artificial intelligence' but why then do I spend most of the game trying to avoid them killing themselves or running into them to get them unstuck. Avoid this game and read about it instead, it's more fun to read about the development history then it is to play it.
Nice mood and very good speech. The story is not that good and all puzzles have only one way to solve them. The hero you play is so good that you sometimes wish that you can reach into the screen and kill him.
Team-based multiplayer shooter in a western setting with four playable character classes. Each character has it's own unique synergy booster that affects nearby teammates so it's best to move as a team. My favourite character is the Trapper as you get a Buffalo rifle and a cool looking fox tail hat. One sad part is that the developers did not keep the 'eat the gun' animation in the final game when you clicked respawn without being dead. It was so fun :).
Great first-person shooter co-op game where you and three others try to survive a zombie apocalypse. Each chapter in the campaign mode is about getting to the escape vehicle and characters not played by humans will be controlled by the computer until someone joins to play with you. You fight your way from one safe room to the next and if you all die you restart at the last one. The zombies in the game are slow to notice you but when they do they really moves fast and there are also a number of special zombies that demand special tactics. All in all a great game that is really fun to play and it's nice with a game to proves to idiots that people indeed play coop games (you know who you are...).
Four new survivors need to survive the zombie onslaught and this time it is possible to use melee weapons to kill of the undead. Chainsaw is a favorite like always in every zombie zombie apocalypse :).
This is a isometric game were you control four characters on a epic quest to save the world. Most of the time you are down in the dungeons but it is also possible to travel the world map between the towns and fight the armies of chaos that walk around there.
Each of the characters have their own special ability. The berserker can go into rage and do more damage and the assassin can hide from monsters and do more damage when attacking from behind. There is also the troubadours that can play songs to boost the skills of all the characters and finally there is the wizard that can use magic. The game have a fun magic system were you used different runes to form spells and you can create spells that turn the whole screen in one big magic storm.
The thing that impress me the most with this game is that they made it with Unreal Engine 3. It takes hard work to make something look as bad as this with Unreal Engine 3. The game fails in all ways possible with bad story, bad gameplay and bad music. Pretend this game is Pandoras box and do not open it.
Puzzle-platform game in monochromatic black-and-white that use lightning and ambient sounds to create a great atmosphere. The player controls a boy looking for his sister and the dark world have many ways to kill you and often you walk in the traps even when you see them just to see how it would kill the boy.
First person shooter and space game mixed into one. You do mission and travel between them by flying your spaceship and fighting your way to the mission areas. Both have been done better in other game and this mix makes them both seem like only half done
The game takes place in the 30 s and you play as a poor taxi driver that get pull in to the workings of the mob and you start as a driver and work your way up in the crime world as the years go by. Great story and and game world and when you are done playing you will walk around with that 30 s music in your head for weeks. Tommy is the name of the character you play in the game and that if something is a hint about his destiny as a mob member.
Use your magnet gun to manipulate your surroundings and try to escape. A game that try to compete with Portal both in gameplay, tone and setting. Portal comes out on top here without much of a challenge
Point-and-click adventure game where you try to stop the power mad Purple Tentacle from taking over the world. Fun game play where you flush things between the characters at different time lines to solve puzzles and also fun story where there are many jokes on different topics. Watch the intro and flushing things will make sense to you to :).
Nice turn based strategy game were you play a power mad wizard that try to take over the worlds of Arcanus and Myrror. You start out with a small town and then you have to take over territory and magical power nodes so you can research more powerful spells. The game ends when you banish all your opponents or cast the final spell of magic mastery.
Matrix style until you almost throw up. Fun story that are told in a cool cartoon graphical style. You have bullet time in the game and when you use it you slow the game world down but you can still aim your guns as you wish and that way take out a lot of enemies more easy. There is a limit on how much bullet time you can have and you get more by killing enemies so it is wise to save it for the real huge encounters.
More third-person bullet time and there is also cover system now. Not that it adds much to the game as I think Max Payne is a character that should be in the air more then behind cover. I also miss the comic panels from the past games, now there is cut scenes that interrupt the game all the time to deliver more cynical dialogue. Really gets tiresome fast.
Heavy action in the Battle Tech universe. Walk around with battlemechs with big guns and complete the missions in two diffrent campaings, one for the Wolf Clan and one for the Jade Falcon Clan. There are 15 different battlemechs and you can customize them all with your own weapons of choice.
The Medal of Honor series of games has always been a linear game-play experience but the developers of this game thought it was not enough. It might look like a mountain or town but everything is a corridor now. The problem with that is that you can walk two ways in a corridor so they added ledges everywhere to stop you from going back. A normal weak developer might have stopped there but the people that make MoH series are not made of the same material as normal people. They realized that the player still had the choice of standing still and son, you do not get a Medal of Honor by standing still. So to make you into a hero that moves you always have a buddy with you. One that spends every moment telling you what to do next while also spewing out bad military jargon. Yes, he do it all the time. No it never stops. Never. Stop for 5 seconds and he will nag you to move forward the only possible way. No, he can not die. The only upside is that the game is only four hours long and one of them die in the end.
They keep killing of side characters to try to get an emotional response from the player. Not that it works but give it 6 more games and it will be possible to play the game without the annoying team members.
First-person shooter video game based on the Metro 2033 novel by Dmitry Glukhovsky. The basic concept follows the book and you play Artyom that try to reach Polis. There are more action in the game, more visits to the surface and many of the people from the book you meet in in other places. Really good environments in the game and both the tunnels and the stations look great. Your flashlight always work but you can use a dynamo to charge it to be brighter for a while so it is a good mix of fear of the dark and still able to play. Besides to flashlight you can also power up your pneumatic weapons to make more damage. You can use the normal guns but bullets are also used as currency so it is worth to save on the cash by using the air guns.
The thing i had most problems with in the game is the fact that you spend many parts of the game with other characters following you. There are some great characters in the game but there are some scenes in the game that would be wonderful survival horror experiences that get destroyed by a character talking about it as it happens. The level Ghosts would be epic if not for Khan following you talking about everything like a bad exercise in exposition.
Spend some more time in the Moscow metro in this sequel to Metro 2033. They have improved the game in almost every way. It's great to explore the environments both above and below ground. The only part that has failed to improve are the exposition spewing characters. Every part where there are another character leading you, and there are far to many, they keep on talking non stop about everything you see. Shut up and let me see the world for myself.
One of the worst things in the game is the AI (and that was the games top selling point). There is almost impossible to climb the ladders in the game and the AI also always fails. I solved it be giving someone orders to climb the ladder and then when they started trying I shoot them. Each bullet pushes them a small amount up and it takes somewhere around 200 shoots from a M60 to get them to the top
Third person role-playing game based on the Dungeons & Dragons and Forgotten Realms rules. In this game you take the role as one of those with the mission to save the town of Neverwinter from a evil plague. It starts simple with you collecting the parts needed for a cure and then you need to run around outside the town for a while hunting down those that created the plague. Then it all ends inside the town again in a epic battle. The game can also be played in co-op and that is the most fun way to play it.
War game were you play different soldiers in the cold war. You get the chance to be both in the infantry, drive tanks and fly planes and helicopters. No part of the game is perfect and the simulation of the different vehicles is a bit simple bit all together it forms a great environment were you feel like a little piece in a much larger battle. Multi player is also great and it s very cool to play co-op missions.
Operation Flashpoint under the new flag of codemasters and it's nice and works in co-op but it seems like the only concept for mission design is killing teams of anti tank soldiers. Not real chance to drive or fly anything in this game so it does not really feel like a true operation flashpoint game.
Third campaign to Operation Flashpoint and this time take the role of ex special forces vet Victor that have retired to the island of Nogova for easy and peaceful life. It all ends when the Soviet invades and you join the resistance on the island to fight back.
First person shooter that try to bring back the old days so in each area the door is locked behind you and then you have to kill everything to move on to the next area. This game is insanely boring, the enemy?s are all stupid and all the weapons suck. Repetitive music also.
This is the second part of the phantasmagoria series of games. All live action but still no fun and the few choices you make in the game only fell stupid and the movies are boring and the story is bad. There is only one real choice you need to use in this game and it is the exit key.
Puzzle platform game that only real shortcoming is that it's to short :). In it the character you play is stuck in a laboratory and subjected to experiment by a AI named GlaDOS. You are forced to use a portal gun that creates space portals between flat surfaces to solve puzzles by GlaDOS while you are looking for a way to escape the laboratory. The sad part is that when you finally get a hang of the portal gun the game end's so it feels like playing only the tutorial part of a full game :(.
Time for more portal puzzles and now also with tractor beams, light bridges and gels that give surface special properties such as jumping higher. GlaDOS is back and also new characters like the robot Wheatley that help you and Cave Johnson, the deceased CEO of Aperture Science. Great voice work with funny dialogue on all characters in the game.
Fun game were you can be a good guy if you want to. But there is hard to wait in line to pay for your milk when you have a gun. I blame it all on the milk, if there was no milk we would have no problems with the guns .
Worthless singleplayer with a story that seems to been done on a coffee break. In singleplayer you explore four different episodes with a number of levels and the goal of each level I simply to shoot your way to the exit. At the end of each episode you find a magic rune that you take with you and when you have all four runes a secret path in the hub that connects all the episodes open up and you can go and kill Shub-Niggurath, the final boss. The singleplayer campaign can also be played in co-op and it makes it a bit more fun :).
Multiplayer is deathmatch and fun but the thing that made Quake epic was how easy it was to modify and the number of modifications that was made for the core game.
First-person shooter that have nothing to do with Quake besides the name. It has a better story (they did it over lunch) but it's nothing to think to much about. The player is in the role of a Marine ( no hair ) that take part of an attack against an alien race called the Strogg. The attack more or less fails and the player is one of the few who survive so it's up to the player to kill of all the aliens including the Strogg leader Makron. You also get objectives to follow in the game so it's more of a linear battle across the levels you go through. Railgun weapon was fun.
Multiplayer works like Quake with deathmatch, capture the flag and you can also play the whole game in co-op. Like Quake this game was easy to modify so there where many cool mods made for it. I played mostly Capture the flag and 3TCTF, a mod with three teams playing capture the flag.
Quake 3 is a multiplayer-focused first-person shooter where your main goal is to kill the other players. It also have a capture the flag mode if you are into that. Mix of weapons from the other Doom and Quake games but I must say that I prefer Unreal Tournament over this game.
The story goes on from Quake 2 and this game takes ideas from Halo, Starship troopers and Half-Life and it does not go that well. You play another space marine this time and you have to fight of new Makron that they Strogg has created. Mostly I found the gameplay tiresome and I hate games that have a 'jump past three traps in a row' section. There is a part in the story when the player get put inside a machine to turn him in a Strogg and it was fun to see but it was not used well by the story.
This first person shooter has some great looking environments but the rest is not good. Feels like I'm watching a film where the set designer is a academy award winner and the rest of the films only experience is the A-Team. It's all window dressing with nothing behind it.
Take the role of a revolutionary mine worker on Mars fighting against the evil doers. The fun part of this game is for sure the possibility to shoot apart most things in the game like walls, floors and so on. Takes some time to get used to that you can shoot yourself down to the next floor :).
Back to mars to fight the evil EDF in this open-world game. This time it's possible to destroy buildings to get scraps that can be used to buy better weapons. The world is split into six areas that the EDF control and you take each one back by destroying major EDF buildings in it and doing missions.
Travel to Africa, meet the locals, see them turn into monsters and try to eat your brain. Game is played with you taking the role as Chris Redfield from the past games and with a new partner Sheva. Works well I guess besides that she always stand in front of you when you plan the shoot and she often refuse to shoot at all when someone is about to eat a bit of Chris head. Many cutscenes, epic bad writing and tiresome boss fights where you shoot the glowing spots.
Take the role as B.J. Blazkowicz in this first person shooter that takes place in WWII. You are at Castle Wolfenstein exploring the SS Paranormal Division and the way to do it is by killing anyone within the distance of a sniper rifle. Like far cry this game starts out good but gets a bit boring when facing the evil zombies and other hell spawns.
Risen is boring. It has some positive elements like some nice vistas and some bad like the combat system but hours in the game i was tired of playing it. It never gets anywhere. Even the dialogue drags on without any of the characters saying anything i care about.
This is a adventure horror game but the only real horror is to find out how bad it really is. This game was created in the early days of multimedia and FMV (full motion video) games. It uses real actors but the backdrop is computer generated. The story is something about a old house like always and I suggest you ignore it and instead use the seven CD's to something useful like putting them under a table.
First-person shooter set in Chernobyl exclusion zone in a fictional future. Strange anomalies and artifacts show up in the area and you go into the zone to find valuable artifacts to sell and also to find Strelok, someone that your PDA tells you to kill. Real nice atmosphere in this game and also epic bugs that destroy the game. Like that the game keeps running and kills you when looking at cutscenes or that the enemy that just killed you know where you are even when you have loaded a game where you did not even meet him yet.
Action game where the Third Streets Saints gang once again make the world less safe. The world in this case is the city of Steelport and there are gangs to fight, crazy missions and tanks to skydive with :).
First-person shooter tower defense game where you defend blue spheres against hordes of attacking monsters. Build your towers until the next wave and then run around and shoot the monsters in the face or in the weak-spot Also a progression system where one gets better weapons, towers and perks with increased rank. Four characters to select from and to no ones surprise i picked the one with the sniper rifle.
This is a first person shooter were you get the chance to both run around on foot and also pilot MCAs (Mobile Combat Armors). The levels were you use the MCA is easy and you don t have to worry much about any of the enemies. The other levels when you are out of your MCA and is more hard as the weapon in the game is a bit on the overkill side and enemy artificial intelligence is not that good. Sometimes you can open a door and die before you even have to time to see what killed you. There is a also story somewere in there but it s mostly confusing and not very well explained so the best bet is to ignore it
Submarine games where you take the role of a German U-Boat captain in WWII. You get to hunt around on and below the waves for ships to sink all while trying to avoid the destroyers sinking you. After each patrol you get experience that you can use to improve your boat and crew. That is really needed as it feels like most of your crew has spent to much time sniffing diesel fuel and they do not understand the most basic operations needed. There should be a I do not care option for the crew management part of the game.
The main selling point for this game is the ability to walk inside and outside on the submarine. It's a nice function but it does not add anything to the gameplay. Using the bad controls to walk around and talk to your stupid crew with a single voice line each only makes you hate them. I will not even talk about the user interface, a oversimplified mess that takes away all the enjoyment of the simulation. Please sink this game to crush depth as soon as possible.
Remake of Sniper Elite and not much is new. They have a X-Ray kill cam that ups the 'parent panic factor' a bit but it's does not add anything else to the game really. Support for two player co-op but the levels are two linear and simple to make it that fun.
Game that try to be Sniper Elite but fails. Only good thing about the game is that it is short. Other then that the game has bad collision with the player getting stuck, the ai is worthless and stupid mini cutscene destroy the flow of the game multiple times per level.
This games real name should be Sniper Safari. In almost all levels you have a spotter that tell you where to sit and who to shoot. No thinking is required from you as a player. To make sure you do not think by mistake your buddy keep serving you with stupid comments. Such as stay frosty, game face, it's a little to quit and they do not pay me enough for this shit. If It takes you seven bullet to hit someone in the head you get the same restarted great shot from him. Not that it's matter if you miss that much. The chance that someone notice you is based on a single dice that roll around in the enemies empty heads. They miss you when you shoot them down in front of each other and then notice their buddy die on a cliff 200 meters away. The best part is when you manage to leave the reservation that the linear game play try to force you in. The whole game breaks and cat sleeps with dogs as they enemy try to hump your spotter to death by running into him.
Sci-fi dungeon crawler where the dungeon is the colony ship Armstrong. It has been attacked by aliens and all the robots have gone crazy so it's more or less all the things that always happens in space. Linear game that give you one of these stupid choices close to the end of the game to pretend that is not linear at all.
Third-person shooter set in Dubai. Destructive sandstorms have ruined the city and the player takes the role of a small delta team that go in to find out what did go wrong with the evacuation of the city. Some of the environments is nice but everything else is below average. The story is formed by running from one badly designed game section to the next and getting a forklift of cut scenes in the face in between. It's not well done and one can see the plot points two levels before it happens. I really feel like the developers gave up on making the gameplay solid and added a thin layer of story instead. Then they throw down the art card and game critics then soiled themselves in a quest to use long words to describe how deep the game is.
It's not, it should been left under the sand to die in 2010.
The developers made a cool way to build creatures and then they needed to build a game around it to not get fired. That is the way I picture the the whole development process for spore. This game is like five really shitty games linked one after the other and none of them is any fun.
I got a work on Enterprise and boy does it suck. The same thing over and over again on each mission. I cant stand one more so I will use my energy gun to shoot myself so I get of this damn ship. End Log
After my last boring assignment on Enterprise i have now moved to Voyager and i must say that things are still no good. Im running around on all strange planets and shooting at everything, this is not the brainless work i signed up for. And all of the ship is almost of limits to me so the only thing to do is to talk to my stupid team mates that fail to do their duty on each mission. Starfleet sux I tell you, I will take a shuttle back to earth and flee this action madness.
The story continues in this second game about Kyle Katarn as he learns about his father has been killed by a Dark Jedi to learn the secret of something called The Valley of the Jedi and Kyle goes on to find it and track down his father's killers. While doing that he learns about the force powers he never know he had and you get to use light and dark powers and also a lightsaber. There are a light and a dark side ending to the game depending on how you play and this two side path would later show up in all the following Jedi Knight games.
After cutting his link to the Force in after the events in Jedi Knight: Mysteries of the sith Kyle once again work as a mercenary with Jan Ors for the New Republic. All things go well until a stupid Dark Jedi kill's Jan and Kyle run off to the Valley of the Jedi to regain his lost power so he can hunt down the dark jedi.
Final game in the Jedi Knight series for and now you play the character of Jaden Korr, a student at the Jedi Academy run by Kyle Katarn from the previous games. This time you take missions assigned to you by Katarn and Luke Skywalker and this time you have the option to chose what missions to do and in what order.
First of a series of First-person shooter games in the world of star wars. In this first one you play as a mercenary namned Kyle Katarn that work for the Rebel Alliance and your learn about and try to stop the Empire's development of a new form of super soldier, the Dark Trooper.
Be a Jedi, swing a lightsaber and choose between good and evil. This game has one of the best stories ever and the dialogue with the characters in the game is great. You play a republic soldier that wakes up after a huge battle with a memory loss and you find out that you have really strong Jedi powers and you travel to the Jedi enclave to start your training. The republic is at war with the dark Jedi Revan and Malak that both turned against the republic after fighting in the Mandalorian War. You are free to choose you path to the light or dark side as you travel the galaxy with your companions in search for clues to what turned Revan and Malak to the dark side and the reasons for you strong connection to the force. Many fun dialogues with you companions and and best of them all is the not so friendly assassination droid HK-47.
This game takes place some years after the first and some of characters return. Your character is a exile from the Jedi order that was cast out for your actions in the Mandalorian wars. You were cut of from the force so you were not part of the Jedi civil war that followed the Mandalorian war and now years later your force connection returns. Hunted by the Sith you travel the galaxy in search for the jedi masters to get some answers from them why the throw you out from the Jedi order as you find out that the things you did in the Mandalorian war was not the reason. Our hero HK-47 returns and once again gives great advise on how to handle the meatbags you meet. This game could be as great as the first one but to many things in it don t work out. The story is not as good as in the first game and many parts of it the story/game is incomplete or buggy.
This time you got to work for the Empire. Besides killing rebel scum you also hunt pirates, shoot traitor?s and maintain the order in the Empire. With enough hard work you go from space vermin to working for Emperor Palpatine himself. In the game you get to fly Tie fighter and many TIE variants.
In this game you fly for the rebellion against the evil empire. Not only the X-Wing but you also fly the A-Wing, B-Wing and Y-Wing. Mission is a mix of dogfights and attacks on capital ships. One important part of the game is to keep track of the energy usage as you can transfer energy between the weapons, shields and engine. You always need to make sure you have the energy where you need it. The game is very difficult so you really had to put in the time to get anywhere.
Two add-ons where made called Imperial Pursuit and B-Wing, the later lets you fly the new B-Wing spaceship
Science fiction real-time strategy. Like Warcraft but rather then stealing the setting from Warhammer Fantasy Battle Blizzard stole it from Warhammer 40,000 :). Three species to play, the Terrans, the Zerg and the Protoss. Each side have it's own style of gameplay but there is to much micromanagement of all the units to be fun.
Zombie survival game that was nice and i did manage to play it for a couple of hours. Then i glitched into a door and got ripped into parts by zombies. The game then autosaves as it has some stupid 'live with consequences' system. So the character i controlled is dead and i have to keep playing with the other ones. The motivation to play the game hit zero. If you can live with the consequences of the lack of quality assurance at Undead labs this game might be for you. I on the other hand will not accept it. The score is how i felt about the game before the code from the monkey department crashed my flow.
Action style flight simulator where you command a group of mercenery fighter pilots known as the 'Wildcats'. Based in Turkey you take missions in interactive cutscenes and then use your F-16's to blow things up or shoot things down. Between missions you get to chat with your team and later on you also get's to fly the F-22.
Great save hostages style game. Better then action games such as Ghost Recon or Rainbow Six as the element of not killing everyone makes the game much more interesting. There are some fun weapons such as the beanbag shotgun, the Taser stun gun and my favourite, the Pepper-ball gun . All this are non lethal as the goal of the game is to take people alive and not to kill them. The enemy is also more fun as they act in more ways then simply shooting at you. This game is great for some good Co-op gameplay
Expansion pack for Swat4 where you take the Stetchkov crime family. Some more weapons and a fun AI upgrade where people that have surrendered but not you have not handcuffed can have a change of hearth can jump up and run away and look for weapons to use on you again.
This game takes place some years after the first game and the Eurocorp syndicate now own the world and uses military and mind control to keep people happy. Then the mind control system starts to fail and people fight back and try to destroy your empire. Time to bring out the miniguns and your agents to bring them back in order again . Resarch is still important and your agents need to pick up weapons they find on the missions and bring then back so you can study them and build new ones. The new weapons makes it possible to blow up every building in a mission and you can use the explosives to rob banks in missions to get you even more cash .
Role-playing game that continue the story from System Shock. This time you wake up aboard the space ship Von Braun and find that everyone is dead and there are some problems with the computer system. Shodan is back and her goal includes earth gone and you dead :).
Game that wish to be Rainbow Six and Swat 4 and fails in all ways possible. I you wish to play a game like that I recommend that you instead get any of the Rainbow Six games. Even they one from 1998 is better then this one.
Team based first person shooter where cartoon styled red and blue team shoot it out. Nine player classes to pick from and wherever you pick there is always a spy with a knife with your name on it waiting in the shadows.
Action-adventure 2D game where you explore and fight monster. Resource gathering is important so you can build better gear and improve your house where NPC traders move in and sell you things as the game progress.
First person puzzle game where most puzzle is solved with a giant ball. Left mouse push the ball away if close to it and right click make the ball roll towards the player. There are buttons to put the ball on, doors to destroy with it and monsters to roll over. Every time i have to leave the ball behind for a short while i was ab bit sad. Played half of the game and then there was a long section that failed to save. I did not hate it or loved it so i had enough and played no more.
Walk around, punch people out and say as many one liners as you can. This is a mix of action, adventure and stealth game. One fun thing with the game was the commentary mode in the developer version of the game were there are little icons on the levels that you can click to listen to the developers comments about the game, most of them talk about how late they put in all the things in the game
Visit the island of Vvardenfell and spend hours killing Cliff Racer's. To be honest you get to do other things to such as fulfilling a prophecy and killing a god. All those things are fun but jumping up to hit and kill cliff racers is the thing that will be part of my muscle memory forever. I do not like the dialogue or the quests. Talking to someone turned into a guess to right word and most quest was spent being lost for long periods of time. It's nice to be able to explore a open world but i do prefer more guidance when i have quests. It gets tiresome to run around in a city to find a single person or over the landscape to find the correct mine. The rule system in the game is also a bit broken and there are bugs that put a dent in the enjoyment of the game. Killing cliff racers and falling through the floor will be my memory from this game. That and the theme song, the theme song is Epic.
Dragons have returned to Tamriel and as one of the few that can speak the dragon language you can help defeat them. Nice open world with many quests and areas to explore, the only thing that brings the game down a bit is the retarded console like menus.
I started playing it as I had nothing better to play and it turned out to be one of the best games I played for along time . It catches the theme nicely and you get do drive around in a jeep and fly a hover craft.
Play as a editor in chief of a newspaper and choose what to publish. Every week I supported the democratically elected Loyalist Party, vilified the rebels and praised the great leader. Still, in the end everyone loved me. The idea of this game is much better then it's execution.
This linear disaster set another nail in the thief series coffin. I hate everything about this game and with Dishonored to compare with this game looks like a bad and painful joke. Extra points for the dramatic cut scene with a cheering crowd of two people. Was all the character crowd members busy signing up for Assassins Creed: Unity? Not that anyone would spent time in the City these days, itís layout makes it less interesting then the window dressing city from Thief: The Dark project. A game i will play next to cleanse my soul of this vile piece of @£$Ä game.
The story continues from Thief and Garret keeps moving around in the city, stealing things and getting mixed in the events of a new factions of the Hammers, the Mechanists. Always fun with servants that scream in fear when you emerge from the shadows :). Best level was Life of the Party.
This game is the final episode in the three parts that makes up the thief series and its sad to see it end in one big failure. This game was made by another company (Ion Storm) then those who did the first two games and credit to Ion Storm for fucking up a good series of game so much. Dont think anyone else would have the incompetence to pull this of.
The levels in the game are small and the game is also to easy and you can without any problem walk around like a killing machine and slay everyone you see without any problems at all. The tools are almost the same from the past games but no more rope arrows, now we can use the the useless climbing gloves that can only be used on walls set on the linear path in the game. All those reviewers that talk about the revolutionary horror level Robbing The Cradle only display proof of their own incompetence, go back to thief and play Haunted cathedral and you will see it has been done before. The game is also linear and when a choice has to be made it's is often useless like when you have to option to go into a door and a window and they both lead to the same empty rooms.
The only good thing about this game is the name. When translators translate b-movies to Swedish they often use use the word deadly as they don?t care to find a better name. TDS is not a b-game, you need to write in kanji to go have enough characters to put it in it's right place as far as possible at the end of the list.
King of the sneak games. You play as Garret, a master thief in a dark steam punk world. You goal is to get rich by sneaking into and stealing as much loot as you can from peoples houses. This is best done by staying in the shadows, making as little sound as possible and disabling the guards and hiding their bodies. There are often many paths to use to reach a area in the game and one needs to spend some time watching the movements of guards before moving forward. One also have tools like lock picks and water arrows to snuff out torches.
The story is told between the missions in movies and in books and texts found in the game. The order of the hammer and pagans battle each other and both try to use Garret as a pawn in their game and the mystical keepers act in the shadows and try to use anyone.
Thief is one of the best sneak game, to bad they used the stealth technology in the advertising of the game also. Best levels was The Sword and Assassins levels. There are also a Thief Gold version that add three extra levels to the game.
It's 2008 and Russia starts another world domination plan like they always do in the Tom Clancy world. Good for the world that a elite special force, the ghosts from USA is there to save the day. There are 16 missions and they take place from the start of combat operations to the final battle in Moscow. Each mission have some goals like killing someone, saving somebody else and each mission also have a bonus objective that one could do if you feel like it. On each missions you can have three teams with three members in each. There are four types of soldiers, rifleman, support, sniper and then demo that can blow things up. Each character also have some skills and you get one skill point on each mission they are in so you can make them better at shooting or sneaking around. Great in multiplayer coop.
Ghost recon style once again but unlike the first one where you where mostly in the wild you now run around inside a city instead. Mexico city and the city is really nice done and to offset that they choose to make some really bad AI. Many mission ends with you having to shoot one of your own soldiers as he is stuck inside something. Ohh... and the when the server player die the whole mission fails thing must be one of the most stupid things in any coop game... ever.
Expansion with eight new missions. Takes place in Africa were some gun mad general once again decide to make his how empire and the ghosts go there to stop him. Realistic missions also, in one you save a oil refinery from the evildoers.
Ghost Recon used to be cool, like Rainbow Six but today they are sad shadows of what they used to be. This version is a generic on the rails cover-based shooter. Some mission demands that you do not alert anyone and for them you just order around your team mates to kill everyone. Not that hard as they are invisible to the enemy and can shoot straight trough walls. There is no tactical shooter element left in this game.
First in the series of games about the Rainbow Six counter-terrorist unit All of them tactical shooters that focus on stealth and teamwork an all of them great fun to play cooperative multiplayer in. Before each mission you get a briefing where you can choose the operatives to use. Next is the planning phase where you can set-up paths and orders for the teams and finally you execute the mission and hope for the best. If all goes well a mission does not take to long but as the most common question in any Rainbow Six LAN event is 'did anyone see who killed us' a mission often takes a lot of practice.
For the story it is safe to ignore it, it's the same evil plot like in any other Tom Clancy book but without the 500 pages to get to the point.
The Rainbow six team gies to Las Vegas in this game to battle international terrorist's. This game moves the Rainbow six series away from the world of Tactical shooters and more into any other first-person shooter. Changes include regenerating helth, no planning phase and lots more people to kill.
More shooting in Vegas with the rainbow team. Nice but really stupid team AI sometimes. Moving tight in a groups might look cool but in this game they glue to you so much that you always walk into them. You can also stack up towards the doorways to peek inside but each time you do one of your team always takes position in front of the door. Stealth fail :(.
Take the role of Sam Fisher, a NSA secret agent in this sneak-em-up game. Like in the game Thief you have a light meter that show how visible you are and a set of tools the help you stay hidden. For example night vision and a silenced assault rifle. The story is about another bomb, another mad man and another Tom Clancy style USA save the world story so nothing really new. The bad part about the game is that it is very simple and linear so unlike thief there is no need to explore or to find new and fun way to do things. Walk the line and kill them when they sleep.
Nice polygon mesh (and feminist enemy num one) that watched to many replays of Indy when she grow up. I always play it safe when I play with Lara and save a lot as I get this strange urge to let her jump from all high places I can find.
Everyone think that Lara is dead and her friends sit around the fire in her house and talk about her and you get to chance to play the missions that they talk about. Not that diffrent from the Last Revelation really
Our grave robber plunders another tomb and releases the god Set so he is free to destroy the world, not one of her best days. The game is then all about her trying to stop the evil god and her old mentor Von Croy who also have joined the dark side. We also get the chance to drive a jeep and a motorcycle.
Connect the wagons and drive your train along the landscape. Steam locomotives are nice as always but there is not much to do besides moving your camera around as you zip along the rail. So... gets boring really fast.
Side-scrolling action and puzzle game where three characters get trapped in a magical artefact called the trine so only one of them can exist at the same time (unless you play multi player). You switch between the characters as you wish when playing and use each characters ability?s to solve puzzles. The thief has a bow and grappling hook, the knight has a sword and a shield and the wizard can use magic to move and create objects. The levels are really good looking and the puzzles are fun. I also like the epic voice overs at the start of each level :).
First game in what was to become to Ultima series and it's hard to see the future greatness in this. Sword, flying cars and space combat all mixed into one game. Really nothing worth the time it takes to play it.
This is a grind style of game and to move forward in the game you need gold and you get it from killing things. You use the gold to buy better stats so you can buy better weapons and armor. With it you can kill things faster so you buy food and hit points. You keep killing things until you finally get a boat. Not that it change the game, but now you can use the Fire key instead of the Attack key for killing things. That's the amount of fun this game contains.
This was not a worthy ending for the Ultima series. There is only one good thing in the game and it s the graphic engine. I like to see Britannia in full 3d and it s nice walk around in it.
The worst part of the game is the fact that is ignores more or less all the events in the other ten games that have been before it in the ultima series. I m sure that they would like it to be possible for new players to enjoy the game but it is stupid to do it at the expanse of the people who had followed the ultima series in the past. The story of the game is extremly stupid and even a new player would see that things don t fit at all in this game. There are simply to many things wrong to write down here, look at Hackis ultima page ( http://members.inode.at/357352/english/nitpicks_u9.htm ) for a more complete list of why you feel something is missing when playing this game.
In the game the avatar arrives from the world of Pagan to find that the Guardian have more or less total control of Britannia. The king don t even know that huge columns of chaos is raised in the air around in his land and your old friends from the other games only sit around at home and does nothing so its up to you to stroll around, collect magic items and do a ritual eight times to save the world.
Great role playing game in the ultima world. A bit old now but still one of the best when you get used to the sprites. You are accused of kidnapping and imprisoned in the underworld. There you have to and prove that you are in fact a very nice guy. The game is a bit hard to get a hold of this days but if you would like to play it you can look at www.ttlg.com.
This game takes place between Ultima 7: The Black Gate and Ultima 7: Serpent Isle. You are in Britannia in Lord British castle when the whole castle is imprisoned by a dome of blackrock created by the Guardian. While searching for a way out you find a gateway to other world below the caste and you travel to them to find something to destroy the dome over the castle.
You return to Britannia two centuries after the the events in Ultima 6 and a someone that goes by the name The Guardian now try to get the power over the land. There are also a religious order that go by the name The Fellowship that seems to gain more and more power and they seem to be connected to the Guardian. The major plot takes you all over the world when you search for Elizabeth and Abraham, two of the founders of The Fellowship. The game world is very nice and you are free to walk around as you wish and solve sub quest and explore.
This is the eighth part in the role-playing game series Ultima. After the events in U7:Serpent Isle the Guardian banishes the Avatar to the world of Pagan and the Avatar needs to escape from it and find a way back to Britannia. The arcade style control system were you have to jump around on moving platform is sometimes so frustrating you want to jump on the game CD (and burn it to another CD so you can jump on it again).
This is a first person shooter horror game and it s not that bad but it has some things that mess it up. The game takes place around 1920 and your character in the game travel to Ireland to visit a friend and when you arrive he dies in a curse that have killed everyone in his family. You then try to remove the curse to let your friend rest in piece. You see the world from a first person perspective and use your guns and magic spells to kill those that try to kill you. The really cool spell in the game is the Scrye spell that makes it possible for you to see things such as visions of the past or see the true dark nature of things in the world. Like walking around and using it on the paintings in the mansion. The bad thing about this game is how linear it is. You often only have one way to walk and sometimes you only cross a corridor before you hit a new load zone and it really breaks the flow of the game.
First-person shooter where a prison ship with the player as a prisoner crash on a alien planet called Na Pali and the player need to escape from it. You fight the evil Skaarj that now rule the planet and get some help from the Nali, the former rulers. Nice levels to explore but it feels wasted on a first-person shooter.
The only fun thing in this game is your half nude female first officer and it is not a good thing in a game. In short it all feels like a first-person shooter like all the others with the stupid soldiers you have to work with on a level or two so they can say they have great artificial intelligence in the game and your stupid ship mates that are so clich? that you almost throw up. When some of your team mates finally drop dead you do not miss them but rather wish you could walk up and hug the monsters for killing them.
First-person shooter that focus on competitive playing against other players. Has the basic game modes such as deathmatch and capture the flag, the one that stand out is Assault. In it one team is set to attack and the other to defend and what needs to be done depends on the level. Unreal Tournament also has weapons with both primary and secondary fire and most are forms of weapons from Unreal. Some game modes also had the Translocator as a weapon, a form of personal teleporter that the player could throw out and transport to.
Second follow-up on Unreal Tournament. The new game mode Onslaught was great fun where you could also use vehicles and the goal was to destroy the other teams reactors. Played this so much I was dreaming about flying around that tower on the demo level :).
To much Gears of War graphical style in this for my taste and they also added a horrible single player story. Warfare is the new name of the Onslaught from Unreal Tournament 2004. Now most game modes have a option to play with vehicles.
Real-time strategy game that takes place in a fantasy world. You can play as the orc's or the humans that fight each other in the Second Great war. Like all real-time strategy games you need to collect resources, build you base and get troops so you can complete your objective each mission. The graphic is in a cartoon style with fun voices on the troops if you poke them to much with the mouse.
Real-time strategy game in the Warhammer world. Take the role as commander Morgan and order your army around on the battlefield and slay the evil orcs and undead. Fun talk between the battles was also :).
Adventure space flight simulator where that take place in the same universe as the Wing Commander series. Take the role as a privateer and fly around in the Gemini sector and choose if you wish to act as a mechant, a mercenary or a pirate. There is a plot to follow about a ancient artifact but it's fun to just fly around and take missions.
One of the first-person shooters and also the basic template for all future ID Software games :). You take the role of a American soldier on a mission to win WWII on his own by running around looking for keys, killing people and collecting and shooting people and collecting treasure.
Visit the 1960's where the Nazis has taken over the world with meachs and robotic guard dogs. Then Blazkowicz wakes up from his 14 years of coma to kill them. All of them. Real fun game and dual-wield of weapons is always cool :).
Massively multiplayer online role-playing game in the Warcraft world where you can play on the Alliance or the Horde side. Each side has four races you can choose to be and there is a total of nine classes to pick from. You get to do quest on your own and with other players as you explore the two continents of the world. Great game and real easy to get into ( harder to get out of :) ). I have played my human mage almost all the time.
The fourth expansion for World of Warcraft adds a new playable race, the Pandaren and a new class, the Monk. The changed the talent trees also and not sure if it is better. Level 90 is the new top level and my Mage has a new goal in the game, collect items with no in game bonus but with fun effects. Like a ball of paint that you can throw on people to turn them orange.
Expansion to WOW that adds the Outlands as a new game world that high-level characters can go to and also makes it possible to use flying mounts, my mage now has a flying carpet :). The expansion also adds two new races (Draenei and Blood Elves) and possibility to reach level 70.
Time travel back to Outlands before it was destroyed. Enjoy cut scenes of angry orcs that scream at each other. Fight on to level 100 level and build a custom garrison instance and send npc followers on missions. Itís nice but it also removes a bit of the multiplayer in MMORPG. Most of the time that was once spent in cities is now spent in the garrison and i did not team up with another player even once to quest. It used to be that only the party that killed a mob would get to loot but now anyone can loot it. That change seems to have killed off the random groups that player formed when questing along in the same area and itís a bit sad. Still itís a fun single player game and there is a toy box for all the fun useless item now. Score:
Third person shooter set in the X-Com game world where you take the role of a robot hunting down aliens and rescue human hostages. This game is horrible and everything in it is so substandard that one always cry in pain when playing it.
This is the second X-Com game and it s not really that different from the first one. A new form of alien is now attacking from below the oceans and the battle takes place under water with some combat on ships. The game is more difficult than the first one also so you really need to work to get anywhere.
Fun game were you fight aliens that try to take over earth. The story is that aliens starts attacking earth and a covert force (Xcom) is formed to combat the alien threat. You goal is to manage XCom, find and hunt down UFOs and steal their technology and use it to create new and better weapons. Then you need to find the enemy bases on earth and destroy them all. All while keeping every country in the world happy and make sure that your own bases are safe from the aliens.
The game is turned based and made up of two major areas, one strategic when you mange your bases and hunt search for UFOs and one tactical when you attack a downed ufo or base. Research is very important as you get better weapons to battle the aliens and the most fun of all the weapons is the blaster launcher. When you get it there will be more Phone home from those extraterrestrial bastards.
Great game that really capture the feel of the old 1994 game so i recommended this to anyone that liked the old ones. There is also a expansion called XCOM: Enemy Within. It adds some new elements such as the MEC trooper and a new human enemy faction to the game. The optimal mix for me was two MECís, two genetic soldiers and two human soldiers on each mission. Play it. Play it Now.
First-person shooter based on the XIII comic. Your character use guns and gadgets to uncover the mystery of his identity and a evil plot to destroy the USA. The game has a great cel-shaded art style but it it is a little weak in the gameplay at times.
Here I write what I think about the games I have played. The score is shown as a smiley before the title of the
Note about Movies:
None of the Youtube movies that i link to are made by me and i include them only to give you a chance to see what the game
looks like. Only the text and the smiley score act as my review of the game .
