Battlefield 4 on the other hand feels like a hamsterwheel and grindfest replaced good gameplay!
This was the game that made me quit online-gaming and continuing playing only cooperatively with friends!
If you thought Battlefield was an alternative to the annoying and kiddy-riddled Call of Duty you are wrong!
Be prepared for annoying waiting-queues and sometimes totally unexplainable loading times!
It looks fantastic!
It sounds even better!
In fact: There is no other game that has this absolutely astonishing sound-design! But it's nothing more than a facade!
In fact it consists of an annoying and totally hollow game-mechanic!
A XP-System that deludes you into achieving something, and is obviously a cover up for the bug-riddled gameplay and hostile game-enviroment with more random deaths and unfair gameplay every round!
The servers are filled with cheaters and death-squads who overrun and deliberately hunt newcomers!
If you thought: "Just have to get better", there is no way to get really better. You just earn xp and more guns and attachments (that's the Hamsterwheel that can get you into wasting time very fast! How often did you realize: NOT PLAYING FOR FUN, BUT FOR MORE XP AND BAGDES?)
Tactical approach is often missing totally and it's "everyone for themselves!"
Weapons are a joke!
It makes NO DIFFERENCE if you shoot with a SMG or a Heavy MG!
What should obliterate anyone coming through the hail of bullets, often doesn't do a scratch and you wonder if you even hit!
Just to make you understand: The LIGHT MG farts 20 DMG and the HEAVY makes the same amount of stink!
A game that will make you hate campers and online gamers in general!… Expand

6-8I really really really want to like this game, and trying all I can to enjoy the extremly easy fights, but its getting old really fast.
6-8 missions in the game you start seeing the pattern, they all look alike, and they are all on the same spots. So at the camp you just rescued a guy, you now have to find a new weapon schematic, or kill some officer. It gets really repetetive really fast.
(ESCORT MISSIONS!!! NO ONE LIKES THEM!)
The traveltime in this game is horrible, you spend 40% of the game running from a to b, and the time spend flying in your chopper just seems to badly made. You have to watch yourself fly at least 1 minute either from takeoff or landing, this gets old really fast.
It takes about 3-4 minutes to ride from one small camp to another, and the desert/mountain scenario gets old REALLY fast.
You cant get more than 1 thing in your supply drop, so you have to wait allmost 1 minute from you order something, till it hits the ground, then buy 1 more thing and wait another minute.
The weapon customization options are pitiful when you finally do unlock them, and most changes to the guns don't ACTUALLY do ANYTHING. I've literally found around three parts that make changes to the base gun model. It's good for nothing more than painting your guns or adding flashlights though god only knows why the **** you'd bother with those.
It's literally Far Cry 2 with even LESS areas to explore. You will find yourself mind numbingly stumbling through the game later on taking down hostiles and picking up resources just because you've gotten to a point where you're going through the motions, the areas are totally uninspired, even if they are gorgeous to look at.
You do openly have the freedom to approach missions in almost anyway you want,
that is, whenever snake isn't randomly sliding down inclines that I could easily crawl up myself.
you cant even rebind the majority of the keys or save the game (even MGS1 let you save more or less freely!).
bad console port.

Everything sounds like an old kitchen-radio.
- The weapons, especially the shotgun sound like a plastic-gun. (the most iconic doom-gun, the Shotgun ! sounds so poorly recorded that it's a shame!).
- Killed enemies dissapear (!)
- Less gore than in Doom 1 & 2.
- It's too dark. I know it wants to create a "spooky" and dark atmosphere. But imho it fails and can't deliver much more then cheap Jumpscares (and hides many well build and textured assets in the world)
- less enemies than the predecessors
- much slower gameplay than the first two games!
- boring dark hallways with the same linear leveldesign from the beginning to the end!
I personally wouldn't recommend the BFG-Edition and would rather say: Go buy doom 1 & 2 instead, install the Brutal Doom-mod and have the fun of your lifetime (especially with some of the enhanced and remixed soundtracks like DoomMetal!) It has even a coop-mode!… Expand

The graphics may seem kinda ok'ish considering the age of this game. Also the creative weapons are a pretty cool thing.
But the controls are horrible!
Inverted axis, aiming will be impossible and oversensitive mouse-controls making it unplayable.
As a huge Oddworld-fan I really wanted to try it.
I tried to cope with the painfull control-theme, but I couldn't.
It feels clunky, unpolished and so out of place.
Playing it with a controller will make your aiming too slow.
Playing it with Keyboard and mouse will make the camera hyperoversensitive and forget the aiming.

There is nothing scary or creepy about this game.
Sure, it can make you feel uncomfortable or stressed, but it's like splashing your face with a bucket of blood and guts and asking you if you are scared.
The best definition of scary Horror would be the unknown. Something so surreal that your mind can't handle it and answers with fear.
Nothing about that here.
A mad butcher as seen hundreds and millions of times in movies and other games, blood and guts everywhere, thats a cheap effect that wears off quickly.
"Traps" that are predictable and you allways know that you are gonna make it.
Everything has been seen before and the missing subtle horror gives this game the feeling of a action game with clunky controls.
Obviously made for People who think Horror consists of "BLOOD EVERYWHERE, HERE GET SOME IN YOUR FACE!" and Cheap, predictable Jumpscares.
Someone remembers the Lakeview-Hotel-Level in SH2 ?
Or the atmosphere that build up and you ran into the "they come" sign?
The thrilling soundtrack and some
noises around you?
The feeling that it got worse and worse?
Nothing about that here!
The Boring within on the other hand is designed to please the impatient, the "Horror"-Fans who think "horror = gore".
After the short first third it goes modern Resident Evil Style and you shoot everything on sight.

If you are willing to spend actual money for a mod, be warned:
There are flaws that will kill your enjoyment for this game faster then you can say "tactical FPS"!
First of all: Be prepared to get killed by your team-mates "just for fun". Or kicked...
Get frustrated when some trolls enter your cooperative-session and ruin the fun for all of you by shooting yo in the head.
Get this: There is NO OPTION TO HOST A PRIVATE MATCH!
You are forced to cope with random people on the internet!
(yes, of course you can create a match after some port forwarding and console commands... but seriously?!).
Or you could do what the devs were too lazy for:
create a steam-server-tool via Steam, rewrite some configs and hope for the best!
The game itself:
Pretty intense firefights! The will get your heart rushing!
The bottleneck leveldesign doesn't allow for much tactical approach.
The game-mode is getting repetitive very fast:
rince and repeat....
and hope it doesn't lag or crash!
It seems the devs spent more time creating detailed weapon-models and recreating some kind of CS instead of fixing bugs and integrating a simple server-tool!… Expand

(at least when they don't screw with their servers and you are not allowed to play the game you payed for).
The Drop-Rate is ... now more fluid. I don't know if its really better, there are too much golden Items in my opinions and I had a run where I found 3 legendaries in a simple run. Rewarding? Yes, of course but it lessens the worth of it.
The game itself deserves a good 8.0 or at least a 8.5. Its addicting like you would expect and the interactions between the characters (the dialogues) are often nice to hear. THe rest ius common and masterful created addiction for slay and loot.
The "new" implemented "Paragon-Level" allows you to set your skill-points freely and the rune-Skill-system is still a very nice Idea for switching and testing a mindblowingly number of Skill-Sets!
The music is... unfortunately very forgettable and boring. It sounds like the Soundtrack to a Michael-Bay-Film without the extreme fine nuances and atmosphere-pumping originality of the Diablo 2-Tracks.
It is even more a regrettable decision by blizzard to implement this trumped-flat-bore-Music-track (that you will hear in every other "big bugdet"-title nowadays), because ALL people I know turned the music down after max 2 weeks. It's a shame that there is no way to implement the great Soundtracks of Diablo 2 or Warcraft (yes, these fit surprisingly well!).
Like I said: The game itself deserves a nice amount of applause. The rest of it - especially the poor support! deserve a hateful middlefinger!
Direct Support for Connection-Errors, Suggestions or Mod-Support (I know... what where I thinking?) or other simple questions are IMPOSSIBLE to get!
the "Support"-Site is a Joke, you are always redirected to the forums where other people already opened similar questions and waiting for help until no help arrives and their Topic gets closed! Critical topics are getting deleted of course. In one word: Censorship.
It's sometimes hilarious to watch how the community gets shat in the face and foced to eat the dump, but rages against the people who don't want to get treated like cattle. So, the community and the company are nearly the worst I have met in my entire lifetime (nearly horrid as the CoD-Kiddies).
I am very glad the game was a gift and it didn't cost that much.
Oh wait... did I mention the overprized DLC?! A DLC that is MORE EXPENSIVE than the main-game?!
And the award to the most hostile and greedy Company goes to... EA.. .. I meant: Blizzard!

We lie down and take aim while we ignore our AI-Buddies who can't decide whether they want to crouch or stand up or lie prone. We aim want to shoot and …
a) one of our AI-buddies kills all of them before we can place a shot
b) the enemies blow themselves up
c) we get killed from something
d) the game crashes
What WAS that?!
Welcome to ARMA 2!
This "game" tries to be a tactical simulation but forgets one important point: We sit in front of a Computer! We use some peripheral input-devices to command our alter-ego in a game with fake limitless "posibillities"! How hard can it be to program a User-friendly interface and not to mess up a simple command like "jump over a fence"?! Even "DELTA FORCE" and "GHOST RECON" managed an intuitive Control-theme!
It bugs me out and makes me mad having to chew through this uncomfortable and plain unpleasant "game". Did I say "bugs"? Well. there are plenty of them! Game crashes randomly. Tanks blowing themselves up. Teammates vanishing into thin air. And worse: The AI: Random unrelated and horrible chatter, tought by one of the worst "voice-acting" I've ever heard in a videogame. It comes near absurdity when team-mates give you some status-updates that are plain wrong and standing in front of a sniper...! Oh, and don't forget the unability to heal teammates or doing anything else independently! The AI fails to find the right way so often, it looks like there is NO AI! Nearly no imersion!
I can't understand what some purists describe as "imersion" and "thrilling experience"! What game did they play?! Bots and NPC's look like zombie-puppets. Blabbering some gibberish and unmotivated lazy "Oooohrah" followed by a briefing that could be organized by a senile granny-club. The game itself: Every ounce of "Immersion" is destroyed by the plain stupid bot-behavior and their robotic, bored and unprecise radiochatter.
Thats one of the worst problems: Unprecise responses from your AI-"Buddies" and absolute dumb behavior. It ranges from "shooting a needle in the woods" to "missing an enemy 2 ft away"!
The second some "imersion" sneaks up on you, the game stops and you have to watch one of the worst cut ingame-cinematics with some random and unmotivated chatter. No sense for camera-angles and transitions! After all unpleasant "Features" this Game has to offer, it feels sometimes like a relief when the game crashes randomly for no reason.
This "game", this piece of broken software that feels more like a over-ambitous mod-project than a game worth 30 bucks!
The one positive point that comes to my mind are the very huge maps! But what good are ludicrously large terrains when you have to walk multiple hours to spot just one objective?
I am giving this "game" one point for trying.… Expand
