It has a lack of unitWhile Civ V is a great game, and probably the best turn based 4x game out, that is mostly because it has no competition. It has a lack of unit and civilization diversity, with poor patching and performance issues.
The AI is as dumb as ever, despite it apparently focusing on winning the game, rather then just role playing a country. Some AI civs will go for a cultural, or diplomatic victory, completley ignoring their military, and being invaded by a neighbouring civ. Even offers to join the war on their side, or ask for open borders, to help defend them, has them ignoring you and not accepting, until they are eventually conquered.
It also requires steam to install and patch, whether or not you purchase a physical copy of the game. A major let down.
But like I said, it is still the best game of it's type.… Expand

It takes what could of been a great social media privacy commentaryWhile it tries to make the open world genre feel more modern and relevant. It takes what could of been a great social media privacy commentary and turns it into a generic shooter, with an open world that is incredible empty and lifeless.
The brief and random descriptions you get from street walking NPC's seems more like an attempt to hide how dumb and pointless they are, then add individuality to them.
The 'Press x to hack' aspect is almost completely useless in actual game play apart from scripted segments in a few missions. Unlike the misleading trailers, hacking the world around your opponents is more of a waste of time then tactically useful. Popping out from cover and shooting/throwing grenades is the most efficient way to kill enemies, nothing new.
The graphics are sub par, and it can't help but draw comparisons to Grand Theft Auto 5, a game that came out a year earlier, yet looks better and has more to do.… Expand

With an intriguing story and unique combat mechanics at it's disposal, this PS2 strategy game will make you wonder why a sequel never came about.
Over the course of about 30 hours of play, you'll build up a team of variious heavy light and melee mechs or AFW's and battle across Japan chasing down a traitor and slowly uncover a larger plot. The combat while appearing simply at first, becomes extremely complex when you have to worry about more then just loading and aiming. Infantry skills, positioning, distance, daylight and special shells all come into play by an hour in and it might take a few play throughs to master this unique system.
It's a must play for mech, or strategy enthusiasts.… Expand

The story line and dialogue is enough to keep you curious and entertained, with a few twists thrown in. Multiplayer in this game is how it should be, split screen and online, and even Splitscreen WITH ONLINE at the same time! Something other games should include.
Overall if you like RPG's and Shooters, then this is a game you should at the very least, watch on youtube. It drowns you with fun.… Expand

Origin notVery disappointing about the quality of this game. Having to run around when installing, why do I need origin? I just want to play! Origin not working at first, and the support forum gave no help. Had to do research myself to get the game working.
The game, overall lacks depth and content. There is just so little to do, the graphics look only slightly better, but the worlds feel smaller then before, with less for my sims to do, and WEAR!
Overall this is a slight graphics update with much less to do then the previous Sims, and at this asking price, I expected a more full game.… Expand

A complete update to the previous generation. Pokemon Y is the biggest leap forward for the series since it went to colour. The story is actually good for once, the combat is visually pleasant, there are hundreds of pokemon to capture and raise, a few hours in, and your team will be different from your friends thanks to the variety of pokemon to capture early on.
The options that make the game to easy, such as exp share, and Battle style can be switched off. Character customisation makes you feel more attached to your character then ever.
In closing, this game has the polish and play time you rarely see these days, and will give you, like myself, hundreds of hours of entertainment.… Expand
