Average User Score: 7.8May 16, 2014I really enjoyed this game and thought that it was better then the first one. The camera system was a huge improvement and the graphics were actually pretty good..... they did well with the story carrying on from the last game in most part - so if you didn't play the first game and the DLC for the first game you may not understand why things happen the way they do. I honestly can't see why people would give this such a low ratiung - even if it doesn't meet your expectations it's still a great game with only few flaws... I mean honestly Critic score of 58/100 .... thank god I generally judge a game on User score.. because that's honestly utter BS. If you play this game without expecting a 'hack and slash button mash' kinda experience (similar to devil may cry) then you will probably be disappointed....... if you don't like those 'kind' of games - fair enough. but that isnt a reason to rate this game low. Anyway I hope they make a 3rd :)… Expand
Average User Score: 5.8Mar 13, 2014Ok this is an honest opinion on the game. I have not played previous thief games so I will not compare this to previous ones. Thief has a very confronting storyline and throws you straight into the deep end without a decent back story or intro and at first I found it very hard to follow. Overall without any spoilers the storyline was OK. not great but still ok. The voice acting was pretty good, the cut scenes seemed to change volume to the actual game and were actually pretty crappy and not done well. The graphics are awesome, I played with everything maxxed out at 2560x1440 resolution - yes it's a beautiful game don't let others say otherwise. I found that stealing objects and items in the game was pretty much useless near end game I had well over 4 Thousand dollars to spend and I had NO IDEA were a shop was to spend it or upgrade my abilities. I dont think I upgraded 1 single ability apart from the tutorial one that is given to you which was quite a dissapointment. Overall I give the game 7/10 because the graphics, voice acting and general gameplay was interesting and fun overall. if the graphics had of been similar to dishonored then I honestly wouldn't have bothered with the game. don't get me wrong it's Still worth playing for sure - just be sure to get it when it''s on sale.… Expand
Average User Score: 7.4Oct 23, 2013So happy I decided to get this game. Castlevania LOSUE was awesome! Rich storyline that had me on my seat through the whole game. I wasn't sure what to expect at first since this is the first Castlevania game that I;ve played, It felt like DMC with a medieval twist, but to be honest I was much happier with this game. Pro's Great storyline, LOTS AND LOTS of boss fights, good graphics good puzzles, cons not all the time but sometimes the camera would get VERY frustrating i managed to deal with it...... combos and unlocks are hard to use and remember steep learning curve. Overall I enjoyed the game, the story had me on the edge of my seat wanting more. took me around 40 hours to finish including the DLC.… Expand
Average User Score: 2.2Aug 17, 2013Well.... this game was different.... it felt like I was helping a intellectually disabled person progress to the next objective. Really it felt like the game was only half finished. Some parts were okay... but it's still honestly a let down. I don't understand how this game even left the studio? I think some people did favours to get this one through. Anyway, play if you MUST though spok doesn't like you in this game.… Expand
Average User Score: 8.6Aug 17, 2013So after just finishing the game, I feel obligated to write a quick review.
I thought the game was pretty good in terms of graphics and characters. I felt that the item crafting and combat was a little repetitive and lost it's touch except for a few bosses here and there.
The story line was great and very interesting. Would rate higher if game had a little more options. I would have liked to see dust's clothes change to the different armour and items he was wearing and more Elemental powers for the nimbat. Over all still a good game and worth getting.… Expand
Average User Score: 7.6Aug 15, 2013Well... This turned out to be a good game. to be it felt like a casual game something I didn't have to sit down and immerse myself into a storyline or plot and would find myself playing for an hour at a time and then sometimes for only 20minutes... I enjoyed the game it really was FUN. Isn't that how games are meant to be?
..........Yes it does suffer from flaws... but that doesn't mean it's a bad game, ignore the 63 metascore because it deserves a good 75/100
If you have a good sense of humor you'll enjoy the game.… Expand
Average User Score: 8.2Oct 1, 2012Game is good, very fun and addictive and the storyline keeps you on the edge. The side quests and missions are fun too.
Stop giving it bad reviews for little things. Yes the game is arcadish, but that's the way it's supposed to be and they did a good job at getting it right. Driving feels a bit arcade but is also fun.. I think it gets compared to GTA too much and some people have different expectations.....
If you don't like the camera and controls plug in a Xbox 360 controller (for windows) and use that to play the game. The game does feel like a port and the controller eases the feel of the game to a traditional mouse + keyboard. Plus PC's graphics are 50x better then consoles and look beautiful.
All in all it's a worthy game, you just have to give it a chance and accept it for what it is, it's own game with it's own flaws and ideas. but it's far from a bad game. Infact I've loved it and it gets the thumbs up from me :)… Expand
Average User Score: 9.4Dec 24, 2011This game really does set the Bench-Mark for almost all Turn Based Strategy games and they should be using it as reference, period.
My dad brought this game when it first came out many years ago and STILL to this very day more then 10 years on he plays it almost every day which still amazes me.
The expansion and user created content such as "WOG (Wake of the Gods)" Make the replay value of this game almost limitless with random map generators, tweaks and fine tuning you can really play this game in so many different ways to suit your style.
My only regret is that HOMM4,5 and now 6 didn't follow suite and build on something that was already so great. Why mess with the mixture when the mixture is already perfect and only needs more flavouring.
If you haven't played this game before then you won't be able to appreciate it due to it's age.
To wrap things up, it's quite rare these day's to find a game that will Stand the test of time but Heroes of might and magic 3 is one of them! :)… Expand
Average User Score: 8.3Nov 22, 2011So Far so good, Just as I imagined, serious action serious sam!!!! Ive got the graphics maxxed on a hd6970 and it looks pretty good.. a massive improvement over the previous SS's If you want a game that's going to have MAX fun factor and dont care so much about a in-depth storyline then this is for you :D the only problem ive found so far is that the Field of View (FOV) seems a little zoomed in but its prob just a setting I havnt changed yet..... I havnt finished the game yet but so far im damn impressed and multiplayer is great!!!… Expand
