Lets start with the story, I wont lie I didn't play past the first few levels because of this. From what I recall, you were a cow-boy in the frontier fighting off native warriors, but you are eventually pulled through a warp in time... yeah that makes complete sense, get pulled from your roughneck world to a futuristic world full of advanced technologies that you somehow know to use!
Beyond this point it was full of story-breaking loopholes, and unanswered questions.
The Story is bad, now they should redeem through game play right? Wrong, the game play is very stiff and not innovative at all compared to the ideas that were advertised with the games release.
The enemy AI is a very sad thing to see, constantly getting stuck or glitching across the map into your face. While you are surrounded by allies that cannot do a thing, and I don't mean a small squad, no you are surrounded at some points by MASSIVE armies, that do nothing but stand in your way, blocking any action and causing incredible stress to the system. I hate to imagine how it would affect a computer.
To call it short, the game play felt like I was playing call of duty but without good controlling.
Well that is my rant for the day, sorry to ruin your day mate.… Expand
Average User Score: 8.2Jul 27, 2013F.E.A.R. Is an all around good game, with an intriguing plot full of twists turns that wind your mind up and leave you wondering, almost even disturbed.
The game does not abuse "Jump Scare tactics" as many other games of the genre do, and instead uses it when it can truly leave an impact on you.
F.E.A.R. has some unique game play, which is pretty good for the time of the games release, featuring a "Slow-mo system" but overall feels very under-polished, enemies are able to dominate you with ease at times only because you are not given a form of true cover, it can leave you hanging at times, as sometimes the flee or fight thing can be very one sided (You are pushed into the danger head on)… Expand
Average User Score: 8.6Jul 27, 2013The newest expansion for Civilization V teaches an old dog new tricks, the game feels fresh, and exciting.
Indeed we are brought into a "Brave New World" with this installment, showing us new reworked game play additions including the new Word Congress, and the ability to tailor your civilization based on an ideology!
The visuals get a slight improvement as well, and are much nicer to the eyes than they were before, giving you something to really look at.
If you enjoyed Civilization except for the moderate flaws I suggest picking up this tune-up as it really brings out the best of the game. But if you had no good words to say about the game before, do not bother as this will not be the change for you.… Expand
