Basically Tri-Force Heroes is a four swords game,Ok, If you have three friends that are iynto this game you'll enjoy it, if not look away.
Basically Tri-Force Heroes is a four swords game, minus the purple link and with a ridiculous setting and story, even for a Zelda game.
Playing by yourself, is tedious and boring, since your other two links won't follow you around like previous Four swords installaments, you have to manually control each one of them, constantly pausing your progress by trying to have the three Links togheter, the totem mechanic helps a little but not much.
Also the alternate suits are just a gimmick, while useful they are not mandatory, is possible to ignore all of them and complete the game with the regular gear, they don't have the pull or depth of the transformable mask for Majora's Mask or the tunics from Ocarina of Time, since those were key to advance to their respective games.
The dungeons are linear and fairly standar, wich is not a bad thing when palying with other two players, but solo they get boring and slow paced, due to the constant Link switching.
Overall is just an in Between title until Zedla for the wiiU comes up, if you enjoyed previous Four swords game this game may like you, but in the single player aspects it takes several steps back.… Expand
Average User Score: 7.7Apr 28, 2015Resident Evil Revalations 2 may seem as a "triumphant" return to the series root but in reallity is just one of the many half-baked attemptsResident Evil Revalations 2 may seem as a "triumphant" return to the series root but in reallity is just one of the many half-baked attempts from Capcom to disguise a very simple shooter as a survival horror game with unnecesary mechanics that just accentuate this game issues.
For startes Co-op in a horror game does not work, period. All the isolation and sense of helplessness is lost if you have either a player or IA on your side and it does not help that the Co-op is terrible.
There are 2 main stories: Claire and Barry and each one has a partner, while playing as Claire you are joined by Moira Burton and unlike previous entries the characters play differently wich would be great if the secondary chacters abilities made some kind of sense.
Claire is your typical RE character, she can carry guns and execute melee attacks when prompted, Moira on the other hand can't use guns, her only method of attack is with a large iron bar and her "special" ability is being able to execute monsters/zombies with it while they are stuned in the ground. So Claire can carry guns, but does not know how to stomp a enemy's head or use a iron bar? Even worse when Claire is finally upgraded she can execute them herself making Moria even more worthless and turning her into a walking prop.
Even worse is Barry's partner wich is some random girl that acts like a radar, allowing you to see special enemies, and that'sit she can't even defend herself making her an Ashley 2.0, why not having an in game radar instead of a useless character that virtually serves no propurse whatsoever.
Because of that actual Co-op with a friend is practically imposible, If one player chooses Claire the other one is just a pack mule, away from the action ocassionaly killing some enemies, and with Barry well the other player does nothing at all.
The two player mechaninc does not even work that well while playing by yourself Instead of having one capable character from the get-go you are forced to change to another for insignificant tasks.
Resident Evil Revelations 2 is just more of the same bland RE, wich fails to deliver a horror experience as well as a Co-op one.… Expand
Average User Score: 9.1Feb 20, 2015Majora's Mask even to this day continues to be the very best game in the Legend of Zelda series, it's so different than the rest of them andMajora's Mask even to this day continues to be the very best game in the Legend of Zelda series, it's so different than the rest of them and does not follow the typical convention of: Zelda gets kidnapped, and Ganon is the bad guy wich at this point is dull, boring and predictable. For ignoring that the game shines form it's own merits of having a much deep storyline, multiple playable characters, an interesting villain, npc with personality and a good world designed overall with it's fresh time based ideas.
Majora's Mask 3D keeps the overall experience of the original with some major improvements, permanent save files made the journey more comfortable, the song of double time now let's you skip forward to any hour of every day, so the dull waiting for specific time events are over.
All bosses have been slightly altered in some way but for the better in order to use Lnik altered forms more, special mention to Gyorg and Twinmold boss fight, the first for being challenging without being tedious and the later for actually requiring strategy to defeat it instead of mindlessly swinging your sword.
Sadly not all changes were for the better and there were several missed opportunities, Zora Link swiming is worse, now his standar swimming is simmilar to N64 Mario swimming, not as slow but nowhere near as fast or fun as in the original version, it still can be done by pressing down the R trigger, the problem: it runs on magic so if it's gone the only thing you get it's a small boost.
Also this game while is not just a simple port as Ocarina 3DS was it isn't a fully fleshed out remake, yeah it's improved in sound, graphics and interface but at it's core it still the same game, no new dungeons or some sort of hero mode may disappoint you specially since nintendo did add extra dungeons to some titles of the series that saw a port on other console (Awakening DX, Link To The Past GBA).
Still the game holds up and is a great way to experience it for the first time and I won't lie that revisiting the game in this improved version was fun and satisfying, Nintendo should take Majora's Mask as a template for the series: don't relay always in the same convention, by doing things different within the same series you'll get an incredible game that manages to stand out from the rest.… Expand

Oh, but wait, the multiplayer!, sorry still the same.
Activision really outdid themselves, I mean publishing the same game for 8+ years was to be worth something right?
On second thought I don't think so, they only proved that CoD series is the most repetitive, bland and unispirig thing in the gaming industry.… Expand
Average User Score: 8.9Sep 12, 2014This game is overrated within the context of it own series, While Mario Kart 8 is a solid, fun and well designed (for the most part) it hasThis game is overrated within the context of it own series, While Mario Kart 8 is a solid, fun and well designed (for the most part) it has some issues that put it away from "perfection". In the core Mario Kart 8 is great, the tracks are well designed and every single one has an unique charm, both visually and technically also you don't feel that the tracks are the same all of them had "personality", their own gimmicks and obstacles making them fun and challenging to play. Other welcome addition new vehicle customization the game, is kind of basic but works well, it suits your play style better and the vehicle classes (Kart ,bike, sport bike and ATV) bring balance to the game and more variety some vehicles like karts are better in straight line tracks while others like the sport bikes do better in sharp curves tracks, picking your vehicle is no longer a "it looks cool" fact it's about what vehicle suits you best and it brings more depth in the game. Also Drifting and mini turbo are nearly mandatory in the game, there's no longer an automatic or manual option, fortunately performing a drifting is vey easy unlike Mario kart wii and more responsive, master it to perform the super mini turbo requires a little practice but nothing hard or out of place, while it's possible to play the game without drifting is a game breaker if you decide to not, since all the CPU by default do it, and most of the players also do it because is to simple to execute, so don’t be surprised if you lose most of the time because you are not drifting. So at this point it sounds that Mario Kart 8 is a game that involves pure skill, well yes but also involves luck in the form of items the series had since the beginning you know throwing shells at opponents, using mushrooms to boost, that kind of stuff, unfortunately the very items is the downfall of Mario Kart 8, making it a game more about luck than skill. It's true that in Mario Kart luck comes to place but in past MK games skill was a more important factor sure you can be in 10th place and get cool items like the golden mushroom and bullet bills, but no matter how good the items were they meant little if the guy at 1st place was good at driving, and Mario kart 8 is the complete opposite for the most part, is more about the items you get than how good you are at driving. Let me go more in depth in Past Mario Kart Games, Like Mario Kart Wii for instance there was always called "item priority" this means that the lower you are in the place list you'll get better offensive items like a star, 3 red shells, a lighting, etc. and the higher you were you'll get basic offensive items and more defensive items, like a single red shell, bananas, green shells etc. So it worked well giving the guy in 12th place an edge to pass the opponents while giving the guy in fist place basic items to "shield" him/herself from the rest. In Mario Kart 8 that is no more, Item priority now is random, except from the guy in first place, so now you van get stars in 3rd place, triple red shells in second, lightning in fourth and even a bullet bill in fifth place, but in 1st place is more common to get the new coin item that a defensive item like a green shell, the coins in the game act like a boost you can collect them in the track or by getting one at the item box, collect 10 of them and you'll gain a little speed boost, the problem is that collecting 10 coins is way to easy and most of the time in 1st place you'll stock up real quick, not to mention that the coin item still appears even if you are max out, this means that the game somehow has the 1st place items prioritized by making coins more common that actual items, so this means that if you manage to get to 1st place there's barley any way to defend yourself from items. So that just throw over the window the whole skill add-ons like customization and drifting, sure there's some skill involved but now the guy that gets the better items wins this is way more notorious if you play online. So follow my strategy, don't ever try to be on first place the whole race always try to be in 3rd or lower that way you'll get all the cool items while the lead player can barely do anything to protect him/herself and when the final lap comes then try to lead the race at the half of the track, is more likely that you'll win this way than by trying to speed up all the time. Also there's no battle mode, well it is but is way to broken, the battles are without a radar in the main tracks, so yeah no battle arenas just tracks, is very uncomfortable to play, you'll spend 99% of the time trying to look for the other players and is just not fun at all. Mario Kart 8 still of its flaws still a good, fun game and you can have a great time with it, but is way to far to be the best Mario kart game.… Expand

Aesthetically speaking the DLC is good, great environments, enemies design, atmosphere, etc. the level design of Shulva, the new setting is good, it contains switches, and small puzzles.
¿What's the downside? Is way to short, at least to me the playthrough only lasted 3 hours, ok I skiped an optional boss but it only added 20 minutes to the overall experience.
I know that a lot of playtime doesn't necesariy means that a DLC is good, the problem with Sunken king is that is short because the general map of the expansion is small itself, there are 4 areas: shulva, the main hub, dragon sanctum, dragon rest and the cave of the dead, unfortunately the last two (rest and cave) aren't even open areas, they are just boss arenas so there's no exploration at all in these locations, and the other two remaining areas (sanctum and shulva) aren't that big to begin with, I think that the lost bastille is bigger than the whole DLC map and that's a letdown. Like I said the areas are well designed but you'll be blasting through them not because they are very easy or linear because they aren't large at all.
Also the Boss battles are a bit dissapoiting there are only 3 of them and you face the mandatory bosses literally at the end of the DLC when you are done with one you face the next one right away. Sure those bosses are well design but I felt that setting and ending really anti-climatic.
And the optional Boss just sucks, is no diferent from a NPC battle.
And lastly I hope the next 2 DLC's of the crown trilogy really step up in terms of content because the first chapter while not bad, it wasn't great or memorable it just was OK.… Expand
Average User Score: 8.6Jan 10, 2014I'm not a hardcore pokémon fan still I enjoyed this game a lot, the 3d models are good and Kalos is a well designed region I like this game,I'm not a hardcore pokémon fan still I enjoyed this game a lot, the 3d models are good and Kalos is a well designed region I like this game, until I beat the elite 4.
The biggest flaw of pokemon XY is the post game there's nothing left to do after you beat the elite 4, ok there's a mini detective story and capture 2 legendary pokémon but is very short, no vs seeker either so the only option is to face the same opponents over and over again in the battle chateau which gets very repetitive and boring. The Online is OK but I don't get why we need to register in order to do competitive matchs and wonder trade is just bad is completely lucked base and you can't see what pokémon you are gonna get in exchange so don be surprised if you trade a haunter and get in return a caterprie.
Also no multiple save files or new game +, this game is in the 3DS a powerful handheld with SD support yet the game can't handle multiple save files? sorry that's a money grab tactic want to replay the story? sure you have 3 options:
1 delete all your data so you can start over.
2 purchase the other version you don't have
3 wait for the pokébank to store your pokémons and transfer them to a new file , the only problem is that this 3DS app has an annual price charge.
Pokemon XY is not a bad game but it's lacking in post game and not be able to replay the game just sucks.
I recommend waiting for pokémon Z and see if they add extra content and features.… Expand

is the most buggy game I've ever played enemies randomly dissapear or appear, insvisible walls in the main areas of the game and the animation is horrible.
But wanna know the worst thing this game got Steam's greenlight because the developers bribed people with steam keys in exchange for voting. And also these numbnuts are using copyrights claims to censure all negative reviews, that's why Metacritic doesn't have any critic review's, because all the critics reviews are negative!
I really hope Steam removes this piece of crap off, is an insult to the gaming and Indie community.… Expand
Average User Score: 5.1Feb 2, 2013Ok let´s take a look into the first problem, Dante himself and it´s not only his new look it´s his personality, in the other games he wasOk let´s take a look into the first problem, Dante himself and it´s not only his new look it´s his personality, in the other games he was always cool, funny and a great comic relief character and a badass. In this game the guy lives in a trailer, has casual sex and it´s just an ashoole and tries to be "cool" by swearing and saying you all the time is just a punk and yeah I know that there is a freaking DLC featuring a Dante DMC3 costume but the problem is that even with that skin it´s still this punk Dante it doesn´t fix anything.
The combat is a serious step down from DMC3 and 4, first of there are no styles in the game, secondly the style meter is beyond broken, it only goes down when you get hit but if you reach the SSS rank it stays there with no cooldown, and thirly there is no lock-on and that´s a pain in the ass specially if you want to aim for the flying annoying enemies.
If you´re looking for a modern encarnation of DMC go play Bayonneta is made by the same director of the original DMC. just avoid this game… Expand
