Well now you can play as thatRemember those movies where there's a scene with an immigration officer saying "can't get in without a ticket?" Well now you can play as that guy, and do things differently in my case.
This is a game where you play as an immigration officer, determining the outcome of immigrants coming in to this bad bad country that you work with. Its soooo much better than it sounds. You check inconsistencies in people's passport. Eg: if a passport has a wrong country of issue, whether a person is male or female based on a misinformation (which leads to some hillarity when you found out that a person that looks like a woman turns out to be a guy), and bust some drug smugglers. The further you get to the game, the more it becomes interesting. You can get access to a gun because of a terrorist attack, or defuse a bomb. Also there are moments where some people doesn't have a valid document, but they are begging you to let them in. So in some of these cases its up to you if you want to be a dick or have a heart and let them in. Its a nice little touch that keeps me playing the game, for 3 hours straight i might add, and there's 20 different endings, which demands a lot of replayability.
One complaint that I have with the game is that sometimes checking for inconsistencies can be annoying, especially during the later missions where immigrants needs a passport, permit, a personal height and weight information, so you have to have a high attention to detail because one simple mistake can cost you. A couple of times I got penalized just because the person's gender is wrong, or his height and weight is wrong, right after I checked if his country of issue, his work permit, passport expiry date and reasons of entering the country is right. But once you get experienced enough to detect those tiny flaws, the game becomes so much fun.
One of the most interesting game I have ever played in my life, and certainly one of the best games in 2013. I would give this game a rating of so awesome I will play this again and again. Now then, I'll go back to stamping people's passports… Expand

It's fun from beginning to end and it offers cameos such as Wolverine, Rogue, Cable, Psylocke, and lady Death, the closest thing Wade Wilson have as a love interest in this game. The rest are all for eye candy.... sweet2 eye candy. Deadpool himself set it up to feature lots of boobies. Clever bastard!
The story is pretty simple: Deadpool got a script for the game and he starts his adventure, which he didn't follow at all from beginning to end. Great thing about the story is that most of the time Deadpool will do something out of place like pumping a giant bouncy castle or grab a bicycle, but they all play a part in the end that helps to advance the plot. I guess you can say he's a Chekhov's Gunman laying irrelevant things that in the end plays a role in story.
Nothing revolutionary gameplay wise. It's similar to X men Origins Wolverine but unlike that game which is only hack and slash, this game combines both hack and slash and third person shooter pretty well, which I'm surprised that it can happen as usually firearms are weaker that swords. You get a selection of 3 melee weapons, 4 ranged weapons and 4 throwable items that you can buy from the store, and each of them are fun to use. For both ranged and melee weapons, you can upgrade them if you kill enough enemies. I recommend the sword and shotgun because those are badass efficient killing machines. You can mix up melee attacks and ranged attacks to make Deadpool do some Gunkata that's awesome.
As I said before, this game is very2 self aware of itself, and Deadpool himself talks to "Peter", apparently the developer from High moon studios when he sees something so out of place like an unfinished area that looks like an 8 bit Zelda game because Deadpool uses all the game's budget for boobs. There's even a part in game where Deadpool can slap the out of Wolverine. You can practically slap Logan forever and Deadpool will say ridiculous things like "WHY, WONT, YOU, WAKE, UP!" after each slap. It's so silly that it's great.
I got this game for $30 on Steam instead of the stores that's apparently $50 or $80 here in Australia. Finished it in 7 hours, so the length of the game is ok, and there's plenty of easter eggs to do that I haven't even do yet. For what it is, it's a fun self aware game that'll make you laugh.… Expand

And when the reviews said this game takes 16 hours toI have to say, this is definitely one of the best game I have ever played in my life. And when the reviews said this game takes 16 hours to finish, they weren't kidding.
Let's pick the obvious positives that this game nails: graphic, atmosphere, voice acting, music and gameplay. The graphic is like Uncharted 3, but with more realistic gore and with a post apocalyptic environment that's like Enslaved with greens all around. The character's facial expressions itself looks almost photo realistic with great voice acting from each characters. It's easily the best graphic I have ever seen in any game period. The music fits the various situations of the game, ranging from beautiful soft somber music to upbeat when going into battle.
The gameplay itself is also excellent. It uses a modified Uncharted engine which makes hand to hand combat feels brutal and satisfying to pull off. Each enemy takes 7 punches to kill, but you can grab a weapon like a baseball bat to increase the melee damage that takes enemies out in 3 hits, or even better a bladed weapons that kills them with 1 hit, though weapons can break depending on their durability. Shooting weapons in the game feels powerful and awesome, but the game is very2 strict on ammo though. The max ammo that you can store for the handgun for example is only 21 bullets, revolver is only 18 while the rifle is only 7. You can upgrade the maximum ammo capacity but it'll only give you 1 bullet extra that you can store per upgrade, so every bullet counts. You can also build various tools such as a shiv or a small dagger and a Molotov to roast enemies into dust that can be crafted by having the right ingredients. If you want to see the game in action, look no further than the E3 2012 demo. You can do everything in the demo in this game, and as you can see from that demo, the enemy ai is smart and will react realistically.
People say this game is an action adventure survival horror game, but I personally believe it's more like Splinter Cell Conviction only without the ability to do mark and execute and without the ability to climb like a monkey, and a lot more gore. This game is very heavy on stealth as every encounter with an enemy always involves hiding from them and outsmarting them to take them all out. If you go out in the open like usual third person shooter games nowadays, you will die quick. So I suggest doing stealth kills really often by getting behind an enemy, press triangle and press square to immediately knock them out unconscious. Or if you are gunned down, either go behind an enemy or beat the crap out of an enemy up front until you can press triangle button to use them as a human shield. This is one of the save way to shoot at an enemy without getting killed, so I recommend this strategy often as it save ammo and it feels badass.
The upgrade system in this game comprises of 2 categories: weapon upgrades and skill upgrades. For the weapon upgrades you have to collect gears to get enough points to upgrade a weapon, and occasionally you will have to collect a toolbox to allow further weapon upgrades. Skill upgrades on the other hand requires you to collect vitamin pills....... yeah you heard that right, you have to collect vitamin pills to upgrade your skill. Pretty funny. I recommend stacking up 75 pills to get the useful skill of counter attacking the "clicker" mushroom head enemies and not buy the other skills before you got that. These mushroom heads are a pain in the ass to kill. You have to collect daggers, or shiv, to stealth kill them or else you will have to beat them up JUST in time before they grab you or shoot them from afar. If they grab you and you don't have that skill I mentioned or you don't have any dagger, you're instantly dead.
The game's multiplayer is pretty interesting and very well done. Unlike the usual multiplayer games with modes like capture the flag, free for all and team deathmatch, this game only have 2: raid and survivors. Raid is team deathmatch only with 20 allowable respawns per team, while survivors is like Counter Strike. At the main menu, you can choose between 2 factions: Fireflies (good guys) and the Hunters (bad guys). After you select your faction, you are given this interesting micro management minigame where you have to handle survivors staying in your camp. So basically, you have to kill enemies in multiplayer and collect blue pills as required by the survivors in your camp. If you perform well, the number of survivors will grow and the more they are the more items you unlock. But if you don't perform well in multiplayer, the survivors can get sick and get hungry which will decrease their numbers.It plays exactly like the singleplayer and it makes for some intense hide and seek battle.
Overall, a must buy for every PS3 owners out there. One of the best games of this generation.… Expand

Combat is varied, you can unleash different combos and throws to your enemies and it all feels right and not clunky like in Skyrim. The graphic is ok, though there are some parts in this game where the environment is beautiful. Storywise it continues after the first game and you have to play the first game to understand it. Voice acting ranges from ok to pretty much bad, but after a couple of hours into the game it gets better. Must be me adjusting to the crappyness. The game is open world this time around, so there's plenty of locations to visit. You have a map, but there's no mini map, it's all just layouts of which part of a large area you are in which makes navigating around to quest spots annoying. Overall it's ok.… Expand

Great detective story with great characters, both good and annoying with great length of gameplay. Fun as hell to question suspects and see them spill their beans. I'd like to say that this is a more down to earth phoenix wright. One thing that stops the game for being perfect is the fact that it's not that varied, all you do is do missions, do side police work, collecting cars and seeing landmarks. And also the plot twist at the end of the Vice case pisses me off. That's completely unnecessary and shouldn't be in the game like at all. All it does is make stupid plot twist that makes a certain character unlikeable. Anyway, still a great game by Rockstar.… Expand
Average User Score: 3.7Apr 27, 2013Now I'll be fair and say there's some good things about the game. Graphic is ok, it's nice to see that there's a new approach on the RENow I'll be fair and say there's some good things about the game. Graphic is ok, it's nice to see that there's a new approach on the RE universe where you play as the enemy trying to kill the heroes, and it's nice that the game has multiple characters to choose from with different abilities. One problem though. The game itself is BROKEN. Cover system don't work at all, the way you aim your weapon is so inaccurate it keeps on flying to directions you don't want to pick, every enemy in the game takes 30 bullets to kill, even when you shoot them in the head, you can get stuck on a low object, and the enemy AI, especially the bossfights, are terrible. They run and run without hitting you most of the time, and it takes 100 bullets to get them down. So while you fight regular enemies that takes 30 bullets, you also have to kill bosses with 100 bullets, even though you only have 180 bullets in total for regular assault rifles so you have to either find an ammo crate or use your secondary assault rifle, if you have any bullets left in that one. That's frustrating as hell. The game plays like SOCOM with zombies. I mean it'll be a decent game if the enemies don't take that much hit to kill and their AI is competent, I will rate it higher if it's like that, but nope. Stay away from this game. Buy RE6 instead which is one of the best third person shooter game I have ever played which I already play 200 hours into. Operation Raccoon City should be avoided at all cost. It's not worth $10 or even $5 to play this mess of a game.… Expand

Average User Score: 8.5Apr 27, 2013This review contains spoilers, click expand to view. An open world Uncharted. That alone is epic enough to make the game awesome. Excellent combat and excellent method of exploration where you can climb like in Uncharted, this game is especially a must buy for those who haven't play Uncharted yet because they don't have a PS3. One problem with the game though, the stupid cliches in this game is too much. Like you know the part in a movie where there's a guy trying to protect a girl from bandits by shooting at them and he ran out of bullets, and then this one guy attacks the guy's back and he's injured, only to take out a second pistol and shoot the guy? Yeah, pretty stupid. Most of the main casts in this game can still be alive if this stupid kind of cliche didn't happen, and the plot is pretty much predictable from the get go. Why is this person kidnapped you ask? Well there's 10+ journals in game that explains why, and yet Lara figures it out at the end of the game. Aside from the cliched plot though, the game itself is excellent. A must buy.… Expand
