Deus Ex: Human Revolution Director’s Cut Review

 

The Director’s Cut of Deus Ex: Human Revolution is proof that second chances do exist. The first time I played Deus Ex:HR I enjoyed it…until I reached the first boss battle. Because I spent the first few hours working on a stealth build, my version of Adam Jensen was not capable of defeating the first boss. After many failed attempts I turned the game off and later traded it at GameStop. Fast forward a couple of years and Eidos Montreal has released the Deus Ex: Human Revolution Director’s Cut. The latest version has fixed the boss battles, included the Missing Link DLC, and even added new features like New Game+. Is Deus Ex: Human Revolution Director’s Cut a successful shot at redemption? Let’s find out. Continue reading Deus Ex: Human Revolution Director’s Cut Review

Saints Row 4 Review

 

When it comes to music every artist as that one album. It is their best work, which later albums are always compared but never live up to.

Transformers Fall of Cybertron Review

 

When it comes to videogames the sequels are usually better than the original. Even though I think Mass Effect is the best game of the trilogy, the critical acclaim rests Mass Effect 2. When it comes to the Transformers series by High Moon Studios, Transformers Fall of Cybertron is the game you want to play.

So what makes this game the definitive Transformers experience? Let’s find out. Continue reading Transformers Fall of Cybertron Review

Asura’s Wrath Review

Asura's title card

Asura’s Wrath is the prototype for The Walking Dead. I’d think to think that Telltale Games spent many hours pouring over the mistakes of Asura’s Wrath to create the perfect episodic game experience. Everything that The Walking Dead gets right, Asura’s Wrath gets wrong. Which would make the game unworthy of a recommendation, yet it is so polarizing that you have to play it. Like Asura himself, the game will push past its own limits and take you on a journey so over the top that it will force you to like it. There are times where I want to hate Asura’s Wrath, where the faults of the game would usually keep me from finishing it. But I had to see what’s next, I had to see how far this game would go. And took me to the only logical destination–God…or something above it. Or on the same level, hell I still don’t know. Continue reading Asura’s Wrath Review
