MechWarrior 4: Mercenaries review

Posted : 10 years ago on 13 January 2012 07:37 (A review of MechWarrior 4: Mercenaries)

What can I say, I love mechs! This is the best of the lot, whilst Mechwarrior 4: Vengeance is a good game and has a strong story, I like the more open universe of Mercenaries. I love the idea of working for a mercenary group, traveling across the galaxy, taking contracts as you please. There is certainly a good story to be had here too, as working for different factions in a war will eventually force you to pick sides, but be aware that your actions may have consequences that effect which of the three endings you get. And if you prefer straight up mech-on-mech combat without being saddled with a story, test your metal (get it? metal/mettle!) in the arena.

Final Fantasy III (VI) review

Posted : 10 years ago on 13 January 2012 07:37 (A review of Final Fantasy III (VI))

The best final fantasy game, with a huge cast of characters. A huge open world to explore, and once you gain the use of an Airship the world becomes your plaything. The grand story that goes along with the game moves at a brisk pace. A game that destroys the world you knew and then lets you play in the wreckage of that world in the second half of the game is truly remarkable.

Vampire: The Masquerade - Bloodlines review

Posted : 10 years ago on 13 January 2012 07:37 (A review of Vampire: The Masquerade - Bloodlines)

This is the first game about vampires that really made me feel like I was controlling a powerful hunter of the night. Still, for as powerful as you are among mere mortals, you meet your equal when it comes to the other Kindred that populate this immersive World of Darkness. Also, the scene with the Werewolf was a truly pulse-pounding, on the edge-of-my-seat moment.

Assassin's Creed II review

Posted : 10 years ago on 13 January 2012 07:36 (A review of Assassin's Creed II)

The first Assassin's Creed game was a very good game. This game fixed what few flaws existed in the first game, which makes this an absolutely GREAT game. I was very surprised and happy with how Ezio grows and changes as a character. He goes from a cocky, arrogant Italian noble to a confident determined Assassin swept up in a huge conspiracy and world-controlling plot that plays with historical events and figures.

Baldur's Gate II: Shadows of Amn review

Posted : 10 years ago on 13 January 2012 07:36 (A review of Baldur's Gate II: Shadows of Amn)

This is a game that faithfully uses the AD&D 2nd Edition ruleset. Filled with a wonderful cast of characters and many interesting and memorable areas to explore. It has a great story to go along with it. "Go for the eyes Boo, GO FOR THE EYES!"

The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past review

Posted : 10 years ago on 13 January 2012 07:35 (A review of The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past)

My favorite Zelda game. Not much to say beyond that. It's great. Gameplay and sound design are top-notch. That said, it follows the classic Legend of Zelda template: Enter dungeon, find new item, generally use it to defeat dungeon boss, gain heart container, explore new area by using new item, repeat.

Planescape: Torment review

Posted : 10 years ago on 13 January 2012 07:28 (A review of Planescape: Torment)

What can change the nature of a man? This is the central question posed to the character of this game, the Nameless One. As The Nameless One, you must discover your past, and as you find out, the many past lives you have lived. The Nameless One has been "killed" many times, but as an immortal he always awakens from this temporary death, only sometimes being killed erases his memory.

Halo 3: ODST review

Posted : 10 years ago on 13 January 2012 07:27 (A review of Halo 3: ODST)

The best Halo game, period. I can't really say enough good things about this game. The gameplay is solid, as is par for the course for Halo games. A few small tweaks to the Halo formula really worked for this game, as it emphasizes the difference between the very human ODST troopers and the superhuman Master Chief with his regenerating health. The ODST troopers actually feel quite elite, but are still within the realm of us squishy mortals, unlike the Master Chief. This game forces the player to fight smarter than you would as the Master Chief. Marvelous voice acting and a well-written script fit together with a fantastic musical score.

Grand Theft Auto IV review

Posted : 10 years ago on 13 January 2012 07:27 (A review of Grand Theft Auto IV)

Niko Bellic is one the best video game characters ever made. He is intensely sympathetic. He has a great motivation that is easy to build a story around, as vengeance stories often are. He has a unique story that fits into just about any gameplay style. As a military veteran who witnessed the horrors of war in the Balkans, he has explicitly stated his desire to leave his life of violence behind, but he is someone who could conceivably flip out and go on a kill-crazy rampage, although story-wise, Niko is the straight man to everyone else's craziness.

Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of the Patriots review

Posted : 10 years ago on 13 January 2012 07:26 (A review of Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of the Patriots)

It should be noted that to get the most out of this game, you really should have played the three Metal Gear: Solid games that came before this. Possibly even the original Metal Gear game on the NES. However, if you have played all of these games, you will be able to get the most out of this amazing conclusion to the Metal Gear story. Hideo Kojima really went out of his way to make sure that each and every single loose end gets wrapped up. The gameplay is superb, as is standard for the Metal Gear games. It's a great stealth system they have set up, and for better or for worse, if you mess up the sneaking around part you can more than likely whip out the heavy guns and blast your way out of your mistakes.
