Shooter Third Person
Shoot people while hiding behind chest high walls.

Hitman: Codename 47
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.


Max Payne
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.


Hitman 2: Silent Assassin
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.


Tom Clancy's Splinter Cell
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.


Max Payne 2: The Fall of Max Payne
Not that fun as the first Max Payne game. To much of that cool dialogue in this game.


Hitman: Contracts
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.


Tom Clancy's Splinter Cell: Pandora Tomorrow
Second part in the splinter cell series and this time Sam is trying to stop some mad man from blowing up another bomb. Mad people and bombs don t mix that well


Tom Clancy's Splinter Cell: Chaos Theory
More Sam and more stealth operations.


Gears of War
Big bald soldiers with big guns that fight against evil monsters and a really stupid story. Nice and fun as long as you play co-op and remember to press skip as soon as a cut-scene is about to start. One thing that stand out is the focus on cover in the game and all battles is based around moving from cover to cover while shooting the bad people. Works nice.

Did I mentioned that the story is really stupid?


Hitman: Blood Money
More mass murder with our friend mr 47 :).


Gears of War 2
More stupid story, more big guns, more aliens that need to die, less hair and more one liners. Do not think... press fire. Still cover based battles and it still works well even if it looks strange that the whole world if filled with waist high concrete blocks. Co-op still great.


Bionic Commando
Swing around in Ascension City and look for what the evil BioReign is up to. Shot and swing things at them.

Tom Clancy's Splinter Cell: Conviction
Sneak around and grab people and interrogation them with your fists. More shooting then it need to be in this game and to little gear to use.


Gears of war 3
Last part of the Gears of War series and I think they have a real writer now but it's to late as I do not care. Each cutscene is painful as always. Mechs was fun to use.


Max Payne 3
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.


Hitman: Absolution
Someone hire 47 to kills someone he does not feel like killing and it turn out to be a really bad idea to complain to 47 about that in his performance review :).


Gears of War 4
Set 25 years after the last game the new cast has more hair but is as fun as a box of wet cabbage. Hard to kill things in a successful franchise so old enemies and cast return.


Gears 5
Now we get to play as Kait Diaz. It is an improvement from the vegetable we suffered with in the last game. There is a robotic companion i did not bother with and some open world areas that was nice to look at. I managed to look at the cut scenes without breaking the skip button.
