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 like always 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
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.
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.
This is a horizontally-scrolling arcade game were you play as a helicopter and shoot your way past each level. It s also possible to play two player and the second player then take to role of a jeep that have a controllable weapon turret and it can also jump to avoid the enemy.
In this game you play an American soldier working to prevent the Russians troops from getting hold of the German nuclear weapons research at the end of world war II. You sneak around in Berlin in German uniform and with the help of the resistance try to find good positions to snipe the enemy from and collect the important papers you are looking for. Resistance?, don't think, shoot, the story is stupid so lets not spend any more time on it. The sniping part is good and things as gravity and wind makes it a bit harder then simple look and shoot. It takes a while to turn around with the wiimote and that makes you die a lot when you try to be cool and fight indoor but then you are not really not much of a sniper anyway. You also need to find a good place to shoot from and time your fire so as few enemies as possible notice you when you make the kill. Some tanks are also in the way but they can be removed by putting explosives at them and shooting at the explosives. AI in the game is fine but sometimes they are a bit to good at finding out were you shoot from.
On the PC you can also play multi player with all the players sneaking around until someone makes a small mistake and get shoot in the head. A little fun but all is simple death match like we have seen a thousands times before.
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.
Collect resources from asteroids, use them to build space ships, crash them into space stations and then crash both into a planet. Keep the sunrise intro from Also sprach Zarathustra ready on spotify so you descent onto the planet in style.
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.
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.
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.
Metroidvania style game where you take the role of a Jedi Padawan after the Jedi Purge. The levels look nice visually but everything else in the game has flaws. Explore a few planets in a contrived plot to find a Jedi Holocron with a meh story ending. The explore part is not that fun. Feels like the developers spent to little time building a world fit for Metroidvania style play.
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.
Collect characters and ships from Star Wars and battle with them. Many game modes like light/dark side campaign, daily Challenges, guild raids and more. It was fun for a while. The downside is that it is filled with different currencies and time based events. It turns into a fulltime job. All of it tweaked to make you pay for the prime currency with real world money. Technically it is possible to do it all free-to-play and it would be nice to collect a team from the Knights of the Old Republic. Revan, HK-47, T3-M4, Bastila and the others but i will not spend years on it.
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.
Fly through space, down to and into planets. The tunnels of the planets was the hard part where i always smacked into a wall. All travel is done on a quest to collect parts to build a a bomb to destroy the enemy.
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.
First person shooter action game with levels connected into a large world. Do quest and chat with the characters before you put a arrow into them. All the scientist in the evil organization try to make excuses but i leave no one alive. The level design feels a bit bad at times. It looks nice but the puzzles have a lack of logic to it.
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.
In this sequel you play as Maia. She can transform herself into a a variety of summonable creatures. A bit weaker idea then the first game. Explore areas in the world and find characters to add to your party. You can have up to three characters in the party from a total of seven. Reminds me of Kotor.
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.
In this game you control a syndicate with the ultimate goal of world domination. From you flying command central you send out cybernetic soldiers to different areas of the world to gain control over them. In these missions you have a view of the target city and give orders to you agents about what they should do and who they should kill. Between missions you need to spend the money you earn from the areas you control to research new cybernetics and weapons to give you soldiers so they have a better chance to complete the mission. Its always nice when you have all four of them walking around with miniguns and gauss guns.
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 .
In this game you find yourself stuck on a space station with the insane computer Shodan. She have great plans for destroying earth and your goal is to stop her and flee from citadel station. I recommend playing the Enhanced Edition with mouselook, higher resolution and more quality of life features.
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 :).
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 .
