Average User Score: 7.9Jun 30, 2014So, I reviewed this game when I still hadn't gotten the new updates that I'd wanted.
Looking at it now with my steam key in hand, I can see where everyone went with this.
The reason why I rated it slightly lower though, is not because of the update or patch or so forth, but rather some of the mods.
Now, to be honest, I like the mods, even though theres not to many of them.
But when you can click a button that will give you hours of FUN for free, whats the point?
The update was awesome, though it took some of the charm off that would make me
stay on for hours on end, TRYING to reach the end without reaching for the "cheatmenu" to
give me billions of dollars and a team of highly trained cheaters (*ahem*) I mean employees FOR FREE.
It is still a great game, but unless you want to bored, stay away from the cheat mods.… Expand
Average User Score: 8.4Jun 30, 2014(NOTE: I forgot to mention this in the review a few months ago, but here it is:
Lone Survivor is NOT for everyone. As a matter a fact, all the people I know actually
pass on it. So why should you play it? the game can be good depending on your
tastes. If you like old games, or hell, even scary ones for that, you should give it a shot,
if you want to try out the survival horror genre, you could try, but like most of the people
I know, you might pass on it. So even though I gave this game a high rating, I still don't recommend this
game all in all to EVERYONE but the people who know whats in the package and/or have played games in the same genre. Not that thats out of the way, you may continue onto reading this review)
(ORIGINALLY POSTED ON: March 21, 2014)
This game is epic, really. Now, I wouldn't praise it as "THE BEST HORROR INDIE TITLE OUT THERE EVER" because, while it is a thrill and joy to be playing, it just isn't the best ever. First of: the controls. They work at times, but you will find yourself in moments where the controls outright feel awkward, the shooting works, but its not always plan a and if you want a GOOD ending, it's best you barley even use it at all. Second off: gameplay. This game can be fun and shocking, at the same time, the horror is there, and this game is not action driven (DEAD SPACE *COUGH* *COUGH*), and thats where this "survival" aspect takes a turn for the better. As I mentioned before, some of the controls can feel awkward, and while this doesn't affect the gameplay too much, it still makes some areas harder than they should have been! And finally: you will get stuck... ALLOT! unless you don't have the right mind to know what to do next, or if you don't have a walkthrough with you, this game can be a real pain in the butt. Thirdly, the music and sound design. The music feels catchy, scary, and sometimes nice. Sound plays a major part in this game, or does it? sure its nice to have sound on to know exactly where monsters are, which is a cool concept so your not forced with the peek-a-boo method. I also like how you stick with a pistol and a pistol, because then it can focus more on the horror aspect, and less on the "LETS SHOOT EVERYTHING WE SEE CALL OF DUTY STYLE". And lastly, replay value and lasting appeal. While some may argue that this has no replay value, it seems... false. If you DON'T know what I'm talking about look no further then the multiple ending. There are three endings, the red ending, the blue ending, and the green ending, its easy to guess which ending is which but if you haven't figured that out yet, here's what each colors ending represents: RED ENDING/PILL = BAD ENDING, BLUE ENDING/PILL = BAD/GOOD ENDING, GREEN ENDING/PILL = GOOD ENDING. It's not easy to get the good ending ether, which adds on the challenge of NOT massacring everything you see, and the replay value of "well i got the blue/red ending, might as well try again". The lore behind this (to me) was interesting, though for some the endings are hard to figure out, unless you've gotten time to think about them, or you watched an explanation video of it. Another problem about this game is that while the lore/story overall is good it can be hard to explain without giving away spoilers of any kind. Also, the game can be found as short, depending on how well you play it (LIKE MOST VIDEO GAMES), if you find it easy, or this is your second time playing it, you may finish it within 1, 2, or 3 hours, but if this is your first time, 3, 4, 5, 6, or heck even 7 HOURS. Another awesome thing is that if you have a Playstation plus account you can get this for free right now (but I didn't come to spread the word).
9.75 OUT OF 10
-Smart gameplay and/or mechanics
-Great use of horror
-Controls are good most of the time but...
- ...it can feel awkward sometimes
-Can be found as short… Expand
Average User Score: 7.4Jun 30, 2014I got this for free on PS Plus a while ago,
but never downloaded it until a few days ago, then continued to delete it, bring it back,
and delete it again.
Why? Because Unit 13 is a shallow and repetitive game.
It controls all right, and I'll give it that, but the missions are the SAME, and
not to forget the enemy designs.... you'll probably see the same 3 skins throughout the game.
Then, there's stealth. Now, the concept was neat that you shouldn't go guns blazing, and kinda reminded me of GOOD games like deus ex, only it was executed HORRIBLY.
The stealth is of one thing in Unit 13: Hit the O button, hope to hell that you weren't seen by the really
bad A.I., and kill the first guy you want to... or just wait forever, and punch the guy who just stands there.
But as if the "stealth" wasn't bad enough, its not really stealth. In games like the thief series, you can at least hide bodies and if they are seen, your dead meat! But in Unit 13 it plays a little like this: NOBODY CARES. The gunplay is also very mediocre! Overall, I went into Unit 13 trying my hardest to like it, but with the horrific AI to the repetitive objectives and enemy skins to the sadly BAD stealth, I can say I'm putting this game down FOR GOOD.
Also, if you got this on the PSN or got it for free from PS Plus, be prepared to find out that for online play... you need to have a pass, or spend money on an add-on that enables it.
Maybe I would've loved this if I got into the S.O.C.O.M. series, but I didn't so I hate this, and that's final.… Expand
Average User Score: 9.2Jun 5, 2014If you guys are questioning my 6...
Goldeneye 007 should be known as a cult classic,
and thank god a spiritual successor exists.
-The graphics... holy crap the graphics! this (at the time) was a major improvement on goldeneye, and probably some of the best from the N64
-It actually looks pretty nice, graphics or not, give this game a try
-Cool Challenge mode
-This game went on to shape one of my favorite games ever made: timesplitters 2 and 3
-The setting is cool as hell! and thanks to the pretty outdated graphics, story missions are AWESOME looking.
-You start in the HQ, which you can explore to see many different things about the game
-The A.I. is NOT too great. while it seems pretty good in the story mode, but in challenge mode,
the enemy's run into WALLS and when they do see you they run anywhere EXCEPT you location, and
only shoot when you're REALLY close, though, the A.I. in this game is better then some of the A.I. on the newer games (Thor god of thunder, the walking dead survival instinct, etc.)
-The multiplayer... yeah its great and all but I still think goldeneye had it better.
-The story mode is pretty cool, but REALLY frustrating
-The controls are not to great... if you like games where if you press up, you look down, this isn't much of a problem, but considering goldeneye didn't do it like this, and how uncomfortable it is ruins it, also, no, you can't change it.
-While the HQ is nice and vast... its really easy to get lost in.
So that's my review.
Don't ask me about zero or what the f*ck the were thinking on that one...
because I never played it, nor do I own a 360!
This game is a classic, just be aware of the package.… Expand
Average User Score: 0.1May 25, 2014WHAT THE **** ATARI?
I, for one, loved RCT3, and for many years
I've been waiting for the fourth entry. First,
we get some atrocious 3DS game, and now this BS.
I cannot believe this game costs real money, and then asks for more,
its like that star trek game from last year which wasn't possible to play
without hitting a PAYWALL (thanks for that, angryjoe), only that game was unplayable
and unbearable. Just how **** like this gets good rating from "gamers" proves how inaccurate the
app store ratings can be.
This game is barely playable, and as a loyal fan of the series (since the 3rd entree) I have to say this:
Atari, I liked the 3rd entry, but it still felt like a downgrade on other portions. Now, you have completely lost my respect with entry's like this that don't even TRY. Look what you've done and fix it, please, so the REAL RCT4 doesn't suck! and good luck to greenheart games on game dev tycoon mobile!… Expand
Average User Score: 7.4May 17, 2014Now, let me make this clear, I don't HATE minecraft, as it is a VERY well made game!
but the real problem lays within the community. Sure, the mods are fun, and I spent quite a while
playing M.C.A. or minecraft comes alive But when XBOX players criticize a port thats NOT on XBOX for not being on XBOX (and not even trying it), and your community starts going on a rampage of calling everything a "ripoff" and not giving poor devs a chance, even if their game is very original or good in its own ways, I'm done. Minecraft is fun, and multiplayer CAN be fun, but I'm not so sure your game is safe when you have a pirated version out there donning the title "minecraftSP" for free, I have a bad feeling.
5 OUT OF 10 FOR THE COMMUNITY, 8 OUT OF 10 FOR THE GAME.… Expand
Average User Score: 4.0Mar 29, 2014Oh dear god do I even need to do this?
Well, it works but that doesn't necessarily mean its a good game.
Also, all you ####s out there thinking you can make a butt load of cash making
clones of this already DREADFUL game... your wrong. Just this damn game alone has
caused allot of phones to break, allot of people (who don't know better) to cry, etc.
Sure, it works but I don't even like the game. It tries to market on what mobile aholes do best: HAVING YOU DO THE SAME CRAP OVER AND OVER AGAIN. Also, everybody who gave this game a 10 out of 10 here deserves a slap on the face. If this isn't too much of a review for you, and its CONSTANTLY bugging you, no need to worry, I'm about to get into that RIGHT NOW.
First off, there's no real novelty to this piece of iTurd, this is an overrated piece of crap.
Second off, this game will have your friends constantly bugging you until they beat you score.
And lastly, this game is SO overrated and s####y that it has already gotten a bizzilion (not really) of clones, some include flash game versions.
With this out of the way BACK AWAY FROM FLAPPY BIRD, oh wait, the creator ALREADY did that by removing it off the app store... SCOOOORE!… Expand
Average User Score: 8.4Jan 18, 2014Fun, and awesome.
The story was at most pretty good and without giving away spoilers: It gets CRAZY, the PS move support felt more like playing CoD on Wii, and there were some frame rate drops, if you are a PS Plus member, luckily this is free until a certain time.
Still I would highly recommend this.… Expand
Average User Score: 6.6Jan 18, 2014This game can be fun, once you get around the XBOX fan boys who say "PLAYSTATION DIDN'T DESERVE THIS". Controls are as strange as the XBOX version, no, this is a ripoff, is a PORT. What else can I say?its minecraft, but still, this is BEST played on PC.… Expand

YES there was a teaser for RCT4, but that was "German" according to the video and YouTube and their Facebook page. While Germans MAY be getting RCT4 soon, THIS IS WHAT WE GOT.
