Average User Score: 7.4Nov 4, 2011Oh EA, so sure that this game would destroy Modern Warfare 3 if only it was true. First off the graphics in this game is amazing for a console, wonderful lighting effects and detail (With the HD pack). The sound quality of the guns and recoil is my favourite part of the game, it feels great to shoot a gun in this game. All very impressive visuals and sound but when it comes to campaign, that's where everything goes wrong. The story takes itself too seriously, the boring jet ride, repetitive gameplay, just another story about USA vs Russia as if we haven't seen that before..."It doesn't matter!" A fanboy cried out "Graphics and Multiplayer Rock!". Ah, Multiplayer which is the best part of the game, I had fun with the beta but it went me tell you this. I can't play on Multiplayer, why? Because the code didn't work and I contacted Amazon and they contacted EA and EA said they said I will have to Buy it for 800 MSP. As if. The code's are getting pretty pathetic, at least in Bad Company 2 I could play online without the code but I won't get the free maps, I'm happy with that. This game is a huge disappointment. I regret ever buying this game. I'd hate to say this fanboy's, but when It comes to campaign, MW3 will win that one.… Expand
Average User Score: 4.8Jul 7, 2011Its the third map pack for black ops, with 4 new maps and a new zombie map. I putted 4 hours into this dlc and it was rubbish. The maps are all but decent but it just doesn't really give anything 'new' to the whole experience and lets be true here. Black ops is 'boring', and 'boring' is black ops big problem. Some of the maps are fun but after a few goes on it, I just wanted to play something else. The zombie map which I thought was going to be awesome turned out WTF? I tried to play by myself to get a feel for it, but I died quickly on round 3, this map WASN'T made for one, two or even three people, it was made for four! Yes, all the zombie maps are made for four but at least in the others I could get to round 10 on my own.
So wrapping it all together. The new map pack is bad because the maps just doesn't give me anything special or new, it feels plain and old. The zombie map needs four people and good teamwork to even get to round 10 (good luck though). I don't recommend this for fans or newcomers, your no getting anything, fresh, but if your a big fan, buy it. A bad DLC.… Expand
Average User Score: 8.5May 10, 2011Portal 2 is the sequel to the Orange Boxes multi game pack which contains Portal. Portal 2 is a puzzle game which bring you into the experience and solving incredible puzzles. You may think the first levels are easy but trust me, they get harder, way harder. If you a fan then you'll know whats going on but if your new then don't worry, you may not understand whats going on but you'll have a fun time with the cast of characters and the great dark and funny humor they bring. And if you somehow finished the game you and a friend can play together! But is this game good? Yes. Is it better then Portal 1? No. Portal 2 may be a better improved version with more content but Portal one felt more in place. Portal 2 makes the characters with very open feelings but in Portal one it was just you and Glados with a big secret. But in all's cases. You got to buy this game. Great Game.… Expand
Average User Score: 2.7May 10, 2011The Sims 3 is the latest in the franchise and what way to bring it to the 3DS. What do I think? It is absolutely !@$?. The sims was never good to be on a handheld device but the 3DS is even worse! I been playing it but even before playing the game it was extremely bad! The character customisation is horrible, the camera doesn't work well with it. Making the character from scratch it Horrible. No good content. The gameplay is very hard and confusing with the 3DS because the buttons just don't work well with it! And even controlling your character and organising his/her life is impossible, you don't get a sense of control in the world but feels as if the game just plays it for you but in a bad way. You can't look after your character because its so hard to do all these things on the 3DS, it will just turn into a disaster. The 3D effects are good. I can't recommend this game, But if your a die hard fan and can get use to it then and play on-the-go then this is for you. But if you really want the best sims experience play the PC version. Even the console version is better then the 3DS version. Save your money and buy SSFIV 3D or Zelda. A horrible game.… Expand
Average User Score: 5.1May 10, 2011While Black Ops is not my favourite FPS and I don't play it too much but with the new map pack I've come to play it again. This is the 2nd map pack for Black Ops with new multi-player maps and a new zombie map. The maps I have to admit are better then the last ones, the maps have more explorations and more new interesting things. The problem I have with the new maps is new camping spots and one map I think is camping heaven for campers, which you say? you'll know when your on. The new zombie map is the best point of the map pack. With new level designs and interactive environment's and best of all the new boss, George A. Romero. You'll have a fun time with this and good luck killing Georgie, you'll need it. good map pack.… Expand
Average User Score: 8.2Mar 27, 2011Super Street Fighter IV is an arcade like fighting game. It was on the 360 and PS3 and Now on the 3DS. If your going to buy a game for the first time on the 3DS then this is the game for you, It has a lot of lifespan and great online. The graphics are very impressive in the game, but they are tuned down because the 3DS can produced HD, and there are costs, no animated backgrounds but that is very minor in my point of view. The online mode is great, you can choose your character and fight other people from around the world and even better, on the go. I did have some lag in certain games but that is very minor. The controls are easy to learn, if your a newcomer then you can use the touch pad to press some moves that were hard to do on the consoles. Or you can turn it off and play like a pro. The 3D effects are not that much, it does work but you are pressing buttons and you will have a hard time looking at the 3D effect. I recommend that you don't use it, but that's up to you.
SSFIV does have it's issues but this one of the best games to have at launch. A fantastic game.… Expand
Average User Score: 7.9Mar 17, 2011Killzone 3 was one of my most wanted FPS game on the PS3, got it, played it. Rubbish. Killzone 3's story is extremely bad. But the game brings more action which is really fun and entertaining but it doesn't cover up it's issues. You now have a new weapon slot (about time) but it can only be a heavy weapon but it's decent enough, you still have the pistol which I never use because it's so useless. The voice acting in the game is horrible, no real effort was put into it and some doesn't seem like their own voices. And sometimes the sounds the characters make are pathectic.
The online is bad, I jumped in a game and it was lag from hell. The new layout for the classes are very boring, I loved to see what my character looked like but KZ3 just ruined it.
Killzone 3 does have some impressive things to bring, but it doesn't live up to what I hoped. A bad game.… Expand
Average User Score: 8.9Mar 13, 2011This review contains spoilers, click expand to view. Mass Effect 2 is one of my favorite games of all time and on the Xbox 360.
The game is a TPS RPG Sci-Fi game. You take the role of Commander Shepard and you can customise his/her appearance, it is horrible. And you can give your character a background story and to let people know who you are.
Or if you have played Mass Effect 1, you can import your character to Mass Effect 2.
If you have played ME1, then you will have to get use to the new gameplay system. But thankfully it's so much better then ME1. Bioware has improved all the things from the first one and made it a master piece.
Mass Effect 2 has a deep and amazing story that pulls you in and wanting to know more. But ME2 is more of a character game. You are having to do their loyalty missions in order to help you on your missions. The characters are Incredible, each and everyone has a unique dialog and background. If your playing as a Male or Female, you have romance options, you can either have a relationship with them or you don't want one or if you have one from ME1.
But the best thing about this game is the choices. You can be good or evil is Mass Effect on what your peronality is or to just have fun. But remember, even the smallest and harmless choice can change the game in the future or in ME3, choose wisely.
You must absoluteley own this game, either on PC or PS3, you cannot miss the epic game. If you seen all the awards and ratings it gets, you'll understand why when you play it. A must buy.… Expand
Average User Score: 6.0Mar 13, 2011Call of Duty Black Ops was one of my most wanted FPS games ever, until I bought the game, the whole game is absolutely rubbish.
The story isn't great (not surprisingly), I won't spoil anything for any new comers to Black Ops or the Franchise but I will say you will be disappointed or if you don't care about the story then you shouldn't have any problem. (This game is nominated in BAFTA VGA for best story, how!?)
The gameplay is mostly the same as the other past games but with a few tweaks to the gameplay which is very Minor.
This game is also very intense, Lot's of explosions, grenades going off, your allies shouting. This isn't one of the best in the Series.
The online mode is what really shines the most. The online is decent, new weapons, killstreaks, equipment and minor gameplay tweaks. But even the online play is not good, I feel it's just getting old and boring. But the best part of the game is zombies, a return from World at war, but it has a lack of maps to play on but with the New first strike adds an extra map but it's not enough.
Call of Duty: Black Ops is kind of decent to play, I regret buying it but I do go back to play it and it may get better when more map packs are released. Not a must buy for new comers or even fans but try it.… Expand
Average User Score: 7.7Mar 13, 2011Battlefield: Bad Company 2 was not a game I use to like because Modern Warfare 2 was my favourite game, but when I got Black Ops I was getting tired of Call of Duty. Now that I played the game it is my Call of Duty Killer. The online is fantastic and with Vietnam is just outstanding, Vietnam is a new and fresh experience with new weapons from the Vietnam era which has totally balanced the classes.
The maps are well designed and I have discovered no bugs or glitches on 360 or even PC, but some say they have and I've never found any or they were patched up.
The environments are nice and big, no campers, boosters won't survive thanks to the destructible environments which change the map's experience so that you feel it's not just the same thing over and over. But will it last? The expansion pack contains 5 maps and in my opinion it's not enough, sure its worth 1200 Microsoft Points (Â£10/$15 on PSN or PC). A good price, better then Black Ops First strike. But if your going to buy it for the first time in 2011 then you'll have a blast! But if you don't like old shooter types then you shouldn't buy it. But BattleField 3 won't be out for quite some time until the Beta comes out on September.
But this expansion pack is going to last a lifetime, it has some bad sides but minor ones. But if your bored of Call of Duty and need a new FPS, you have bought the right game. A must buy.… Expand
