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.
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.
The return of the battlefield games to the second world war. A strange early access form of release with parts of the game filled with coming soon and future release dates for content. They used the war stories format from Battlefield 1 for the single player.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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 ‘i shoot things’ and ‘i sneak around mode’. Gameplay was a bit meh to me.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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
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.
More aliens to shoot and less Master chief. The game is split between our green hero and another spartan. He has a name for sure but as long as John-117 is around he will always be another spartan. They each have three friends so you are never alone in this game. Story is something about Cortana going insane. Nothing is solved this time around so the end credits is a punch in the face and a hint to wait until Halo 6. I hope they can make more then one boss to Halo 6 so they do not have to recycle him all the time like in Halo 5.
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.
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
Last pinball game for the Amiga from Digital Illusions. This game has three tables to pick from and i liked BabeWatch the most. They also had learned some basic 3D when they made this game and the knowledge was used to create the most ugly main menu possible.
Shipping empire simulator where you get to buy boats and transport cargo from one place to another over the seven seas. Game also has a small arcade like sections including one where you have to steer your ship into port without ramming the docks. Also support playing for players in the hotseat but the game grows tiresome somewhat quick and faster so with more people.
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.
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.
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.
Indiana Jones inspired platformer- You need to memorize each step to avoid falling into a deathtrap in the next screen. It's possible that this game is responsible for my dislike of platform games. I like the over the top scream when a enemy fly off screen.
Rule the world on Nintendo DS. Works but not much more. The thing that really drives you insane is the advisor?s that pop-up once each turn and say the same thing and the fact that each city that has nothing to build also pop-up each turn. So even if you do not wish to build anything you still have to click back once for each city in the known world.
Three action sequences inspired by the third star wars film. speeder bike racing, AT-ST Walker and then attacking the death star with Millennium Falcon. Like the others the game restarts at a higher level if you win.
Game looks great, the AI is a bit meh and i stopped playing when they worthless characters from the new movies started to show up. The new characters in the game are fine but the story is a slice of stupid.
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.
First person puzzle game where most are solved with a giant ball. Left mouse push the ball away and right mouse make the ball roll towards the player. Put the ball on buttons, destroy doors with it or use it to roll over monsters. Every time i had to leave the ball behind for a while i felt a bit sad.
First-person shooter where you take the role of a possessed Mafia member that that have to kill off more or less everyone he worked with before. Besides the normal guns you also have darkness power from the thing inside you. It is also possible to summon small deamons called Darklings to help you fight. The problem with the game is that the darkness power is really not that fun and the story is also somewhat dull. The only place when it lights up is when you kill yourself in the story and go to a horror style world war one setting that act as the private hell the darkness have you in you resurrect. Still, I'm not sure that 'it's fun when you kill yourself' is a good selling point for a game.
Adventure game where you collect items and use them in strange ways to move forward in the plot. In the game one assume the role of Gaybrush Threepwood, a young man that try to get into a career as a pirate. As the game progress one fight sword fights with insults, search for treasure and also get a new nemesis in the form of the ghost pirate LeChuck. Never been a fan of this kinds of game really, some fun parts but overall I find it tiresome to pickup random items and guess my way to the answer.
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.
Five sport mini games, Tennis, Baseball, Golf, Bowling and Boxing. It's main goal seems to be to teach the players how fun it is to stand around and wiggle the Wii Remotes in the air. If I had to pick one it would be golf but they are all really boring.
Arcade puzzle game where your character Zoomer trace around the squares on the game board. When you filled out all the squares you proceed to the next level. At the same time there are monsters that try to eat you and powerups that appear at random on the board.
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 .
