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.
Control your carrier and use it to take over islands so you get enough power to find and destroy the other carrier. The movie is not done by me (none of the movies i link to are) but it provides a good overview of the game.
This fighting game is made up of two parts and in the first you train you characters skills for the tournament in the second part of the game. Training is done by many exercises such as balancing on trees and dodging someone attacking you with a stick. The better you do the more strength and stamina you will have in the tournament. Fighting in the tournament is similar to many other fighting games were you kick your way to the next level. Training is not friendly for your joystick so you needs a whole box of tac-2?s to play games like this.
In this game you have two defense towers and you select the one to shoot from with the mouse buttons. The goal is to shoot down the incoming missiles so they don?t destroy any of your towns. It all goes on wave after wave and each one is a little faster. Not a fun game at all really :(.
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 ‘i shoot things’ and ‘i sneak around mode’. Gameplay was a bit meh to me.
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 .
