TheFirst let me start off by saying that Arma 2 is the best military sim I have ever played. It feels very authentic in its atmosphere. The graphics are really good if you have the computer to handle it. My review is based solely on the single player campaign. I keep hearing that the mission editor is where its at, but I havent touched it.
I just recently finished up the Red Harvest campaign and although I hear people saying how boring the campaign was, I really enjoyed it when it worked properly. I must warn anyone picking up this game that It really tested my patience due to the insane number of bugs. This game imho is the buggiest I have ever played. You need to constantly manual save because Arma 2 misssions will break or crash and there are bugs that won't allow the missions to end so you will have to restart mission from beginning if you don't save. You will need a lot of patience to see the campaign through to the end. Also the keyboard commands can be intimidating and does feel sluggish. Also targeting enemies feels sluggish.
When it works it truly one of the best combat sim experiences ever. I give it a 7 which does not seem to match this review, but had this game had all the bugs fixed and better use of interface this could easily be a 9 or 10.… Expand
Average User Score: 8.3Mar 4, 2013Dishonored is a great game. While not perfect (I don't think there ever is a perfect game) it comes close. It clearly draws its inspirationDishonored is a great game. While not perfect (I don't think there ever is a perfect game) it comes close. It clearly draws its inspiration from Thief. It also has a little of Deus Ex, System Shock and Bioshock in it. If you like any of these games, especially Thief...Buy this game!!!
You play as Corvo, Protector of the Empress of Dunwall. You are framed for murder and are out to set things right. There is more to the plot but I do not want to spoil it for you.
The game is broken down into a series of missions aka Thief style. At the end of each mission you will see a detailed score of your actions. Once you start a mission, there are many ways you can go about it. Even though the mission area is not really open world, it feels like it. You can be stealthy or go in Rambo style. It is up to you. The combat is fun and I really enjoyed experimenting with the powers. There are many ways to kill or incapacitate a person. The only downside for me are the ending cutscenes. After such a great ride with all the wonderful missions, I felt that the ending is bit rushed. It is a very short ending cutscene and I wished it were more fleshed out. Overall I love this game and I really am looking forward to a sequel!!!… Expand

ThereI enjoyed playing this game. Hitman Absolution is a stealth game. Lots of sneaking around and different ways of killing your target. There are parts in this game that can frustrate, like there being few checkpoints in a mission. I died a lot and would sometimes have to repeat certain sections over and over again.
Even though I was frustrated at times, I enjoyed the story and wanted to see it through to the end.
The graphics were excellent, really nicely done.… Expand
Average User Score: 6.8Feb 10, 2013I just finished Dead Island after putting in about 45 hours and that says something considering that I find the game very repetitive at times.I just finished Dead Island after putting in about 45 hours and that says something considering that I find the game very repetitive at times. There is barely any story in it and the missions are often tedious fetch quests.
Having said that, the melee combat system in is game is probably the best. The weapons used in this game have weight and bashing the heads of the infected is very fun.
The infected(zombies) are very well done with both walking and running types. Also a few boss types.
The graphics in the game are beautiful on highest resolutions. I think the locations in the game are very well done and realistic.
If you are into Survival Horror or love Zombie games, you really owe it to yourself to pick this game up.
Like I said I do find that it gets repetitive but at the same time I had a lot of fun. Enough fun to want to finish the game. I give this game a solid 7.5. It does not get a higher score from me due to faults I mentioned earlier in this review.… Expand
