Average User Score: 7.3Jan 27, 2014For the starters, the game gets a little repetitive when you are mostly thrust from one battle to another. This is not a typical RPG but something more akin to FF Tactics.
That being said, the combat is fun, the story intriguing, interesting characters with detailed skilltalent trees.Some of the fights can be pretty hard and the RNG combat system can get a little annoying at times but nothing a reload can't solve. I like the fact that you actually need to prepare before moving on the next battle as you simply cannot hit the Inventory key and start swapping weapons or using items.
All in all a solid game and one worth playing. Just try to limit your play sessions to 1-2 hours. Personally I feel any play session longer than 2 hours tends to get tedious.… Expand
Average User Score: 5.9Dec 7, 2013The game constantly crashes. Unable to join servers for long periods. Random disconnections within seconds of starting a game. Numerous gameplay bugs. EADICE deleting forum threads where players expose the ugly truth about their "game". Half assed attempts at "player appreciation".

Average User Score: 7.3Nov 5, 2013I bought this game in 2010, played for 2 days and tossed it in the garbage. In 2013, I bought this game again and feel THIS IS WHAT THE GAME SHOULD HAVE BEEN. Putting all server issues aside, the game boasts good visuals, multi-class and crafting system and epic storyline. Have not felt this good about an MMO since vanilla WoW days.
On the other hand, the dungeon content could be expanded soon as the current ones are fast wearing out.… Expand
Average User Score: 8.6May 22, 2013I did not play Metro 2033 and was a little skeptical when picking this game up but was I...BLOWN AWAY! Worth every cent and minute I sunk into the game. I think this is one game that managed to pull off the whole post-apocalyptic setting well from the burnt out husk that was once Moscow to the refuge survivors struggling in this new world; each of these components blended together very well.
Fantastic eerie environments, great characters you can relate to, excellent ambiance, challenging combat with resource management if you play on harder modes. Storytelling was good and the entire "campaign" lasted about 20 hours for me but my only beef with it was the rather abrupt ending.
If anyone asks, I highly recommend this game; buy it, loan it, rent it, steal it etc… Expand
Average User Score: 3.4Feb 15, 20131) Atrocious AI; especially the aliens. They just make a beeline for you.
2) Dated graphics; unlike what was seen in the demos.
3) First level was great with a great atmosphere and build up. It stops there, at the first level.
4) "EPIC" boss battle.
5) This is related to the second point; there's absolutely no sense of dread or "feel". Flip switch, run and gun, flip switch, run and gun.… Expand
Average User Score: 3.8Dec 5, 2012This game should be a 10$ DLC instead of a full fledged 60$ game. I think if someone puts a screenshot of MW1 and Black Ops II next to each other, I wouldn't be able to tell the difference. The one drastic difference would be the Strike Force missions, but the clunky controls and stupid AI means that I always end up soloing the entire thing. Kudos to Treyarch on promoting the wonderful values of RECYCLING.… Expand
Average User Score: 8.1Oct 23, 2012After more than a decade of waiting, I must say that XCOM: Enemy Unknown managed to satisfy my palate. The graphics and art style look good and the gameplay although simplified, still made it fun. Especially liked the ability to customize your soldier right down to the nicknames. The armour, weapons and the way your soldier(s) moved made them look really badass!
On the downside, the lackluster storyline and no aliens attacking your base brought this game down a notch. After the final cutscene, all I could do was go " That's it...?" I sincerely think the storyline and ending could have been better. Overall a good game, worth playing and worth every penny.… Expand
Average User Score: 3.9Jul 25, 2012Game was great until the nerfs started coming in; don't need some faceless corporation telling me how the game should be played andor enjoyed. What's next on the nerf list? Crit damage? Crit chance? Running too fast? Gold pickup radius too wide? Stacking a particular stat too high?
Crafting is a waste of time. I think every aspect of the game is somehow pointing you to the direction of the RMAH. Buy with real money to win. Ever heard of a "useless legendary"? Play this game and you will know what it means.… Expand
