Most FPS games theseIn the era of pay-to-win games with the terrible microtransactions this first person shooter is a breath of fresh air. Most FPS games these days are multiplayer focused with a weak - or in many cases none existing - campaign mode. Wolfenstein II: The New Colossus however is the total opposite, and that is awesome, it has a great story with interesting characters and creative set pieces, plus it does a great job continuing the story of a classic video game franchise.
It is a violent game but I don't think there is a single gamer out there who does not know what this series is about - killing nazis. It is done in such a fun and creative way though, that these games just simply don't get boring. I enjoyed the flash back parts as well, as we learned a lot more about our hero's tough upbringing. I also truly hated the main villain (which is very good I guess), she is so evil you really want to do your best to finally kill her. Very satisfying...
So all in all it is an outstanding game, that us gamers should support. This one deserves our money, unlike many other ones on the market with greedy publishers! Long live the Wolfenstein franchise!!!… Expand
Average User Score: 8.0Sep 21, 2017The Uncharted series to me is the greatest franchise in video game history and Nathan Drake is probably my favorite character. So when I firstThe Uncharted series to me is the greatest franchise in video game history and Nathan Drake is probably my favorite character. So when I first heard about The Lost Legacy and the fact that it will not have Nate in it I was worried the game will not deliver up to standards we got used to from Naughty Dog. But I shouldn't have worried as the developers have done it again, they created an other masterpiece.
This time around the protagonist in the game is a fan favorite, Chloe, who appeared alongside Nate as an NPC in Uncharted 2 and 3. She is an outsanding character and well deserved to star in her own game. Her co-op partner in this adventure is Nadine, who actually fought against Nate and his brother Sam in Uncharted 4 as a mercenary for hire, but this time around she fights on the right side. The two female leads are a great dynamic duo and the story is interesting and fun, plus the main bad guy, Asav, is also a worthy opponent. He is smart, patient, strong and ruthless.
Without spoiling too much, our treasure hunters are after a special tusk in India and you spend most of your time in the jungle, where you enter ancient cities and discover new findings in the rich history of this huge country.
What I love about this game is that Chloe moves differently from Drake and she also has some new weapons and melee moves. I really enjoyed the fighting in this one. There is a lot of platforming and some puzzle solving but mostly it is perfectly paced and the gameplay has enough variety. The controls are smooth and as expected from an Uncharted game, the presentation, graphics, motion capture, music, sound and voice acting is just flawless.
The final level in the game is one I will never forget, it starts with a bang and finishes even stronger. There is simply nothing to complain about the game for me, it has a large open world in chapter four where you can ride around in a jeep freely and solve tasks in any order you want, you can ride an elephant, complete missions using stealth or go in guns blazing, the environments are beautiful, the level designs are extremely well made and it has that unique Uncharted feel, the feeling only this franchise can create. My game of the year thus far.… Expand

The pace is definately slower than I expected it to be as Ninja Theory, creators of the outstanding Heavenly Sword, is known for giving fans fast paced action games. Exploration and puzzle solving takes a lot bigger role than I previously thought, but I did not mind as some of my favorite franchises like Uncharted or Tomb Raider have plenty of those as well. But the reason why this game is so great is because it is still different than the upper mentioned games, as a matter of fact it is very different from any game I ever played. Our hero, Senua, is mentally ill and that plays a vital role in the story and also how she sees the world. And it is a frightening and disturbing world, filled with violently killed dead bodies, scary wooden statues and there are these constant noises/voices in Senua's head that makes just walking in the woods crazy as well. The setting is superb, it is based on Celtic and Norse mythology and it is very unique. There is also NO HUD at all on the screen, which is awesome! No mini map, no crosshair, nothing, it is just you and the environment. I love it!
When the action heats up, combat is as good as it gets. The over the shoulder camera works excellent and Senua is a master with the sword and also have some devastating kicks in her arsenal. The fighting scenes are my favorite parts of the game, it is superb.
The voice acting is also stellar, and the graphics are gorgeous. If you wanna just hack and slash this is not your game, but if you like exploring, a great story and some fun action, then you will enjoy this for sure. A must play for me.… Expand

As a martial artist myself, IFor as long as I have started playing video games, the 'fighting games' genre has always been my favorite. As a martial artist myself, I always loved a good combat system in games, and to me personally no other franchise has ever done that better than Tekken. And now with Tekken 7, the new king of this genre has arrived. Tekken 7 is better, prettier, smoother and larger than any Tekken before. The story is also the best in the franchise and there are all the other game modes present that you expect in a fighting game - Arcade Mode, Treasure Mode, Practice Mode, Online And Local Versus Mode and so on. From these, my favorite is Treasure Mode where you fight random opponents on any difficulty to unlock new gear, fight money, etc. which then you can use to customize your characters. And the customization possibilities are HUGE, and the best part about it that it is FREE, you don't need any microtransactions to unlock EVERYTHING! All you need is skills and time. At launch almost 40 fighters are already available with many more coming as DLC characters, it is safe to say that you get more than enough content for your money. Of course all of this would not work if the battles weren't addictivly fun. Tekken since the beggining has always been all about skills. The combat system is sooo deep, there is nothing else like it. It is not as easy to get good at it like Injustice, Street Fighter and other games in the genre. It takes time and again SKILLS to master it. Casual gamers will easily get destroyed online. This is not a diss to other fighting games, because as I said, I like and play almost all of them, but Tekken 7 is the best of the best. The last few years have been superb for fighting games fans with King Of Fighters XIV, Mortal Kombat X, Street Fighter V, Guilty Gear Drx 2, Injustice and so on but Tekken 7 takes the crown as THE best. Amazing game and a must play for everyone.… Expand

I love playing it in real life and love playing it on the PlayStation / PC as well. I grew up rocking NBA Street and NBA Street Vol. 2 back on the PS2 days and it gave me some of my favorite ever gaming memories. I remember how after hitting the court in real life, we always got together with my friends and then played ball on the console. Then on the PS3 I also loved the re-invention of the NBA Jam franchise. Now with NBA Playgrounds, you kinda get both, as the best way to describe this game is that it's a mix of NBA Street and NBA Jam!
I always wondered how amazing an NBA Street game would be on the current gen consoles and PCs, and this game is as close to that as it gets. I love the easy to pick up but hard to master controls, the flashy dunks and tricks, the beautiful and funny graphics, the old-school Hip-Hop style soundtrack, the court designs and the fact that it has almost all the NBA legends, as well as the current star players. The roster is deep and you can upgrade all the players with the XPs you earn after each game. There are many different courts from all over the globe and you can unlock new skills and moves as you progress.
It is a sports game, so sometimes it can feel cheap, like the CPU "cheats" against you but eventually you can beat it on any difficulty. I believe if you like basketball and you're a fan of the arcade style streetball games you will love this one. To me it's a must buy!… Expand

I personally gave it two chances to play, but just didn't have much fun with it. The story was depressive and also a bit boring with a forgettable protagonist, plus the gameplay was lacking as well. Chicago also wasn't exciting enough and the graphics downgrade was obvious from the start. With Watch Dogs 2, Ubisoft wanted to make sure they made all those things right, and glad to say that they not only did that but also gave us one of the very best games of 2016. The main character, Marcus Holloway, is a young, colorful hero who is not only a master hacker, but also great in parkour, fighting, driving and shooting. San Francisco is the new setting of the game, and it serves as one of the best open world maps in any game I ever played. The city is just full of life and seems like every NPC in it walking the streets has a purpose. People are working out, walking dogs, doing martial arts at the park, they do yoga, they greet each other on the streets, they sit around under a tree chatting, they talk on the phone, get into car crashes, play guitar, go shopping and the list just goes on and on. There is never a boring scene anywhere, and I often just spend time walking around doing parkour, and exploring all the sights and sounds.
Without spoiling much of the story, I can also say that this time around taking down the "Big Brother" is a lot of fun with many interesting characters you meet on the way. Marcus joins the hacker group DeadSec pretty early on and from then his main purpose is to win his war against the government.
There are also many activities to do in San Fran, my favorite being taking down gangs and stealing their money stash. Your dollars you can spend on buying cars, weapons, new equipment for hacking like drones, food, clothes and there is also an upgrade system. There are side missions as well like freeing other captured players and thanks to multiplayer there are plenty of co-op and PvP matches.
I could write about this game for hours, but I rather go back and play it now. All in all, it is an amazing sandbox experience with great action, smooth driving, cool parkour and an excellent story. Must play for everyone who likes the genre.… Expand

I do, it is one of my favorite genres, plus I am also a huge TMNT fan, so putting the two together is exactly my kind of fun. The cartoon-style graphics are awesome, the usual Platinum Games quality is here once again. The turtles are exactly as they should be, they all fight differently, all have different combos and weapons and their personalities are on point as well. Mikey is hilarious, Raph is serious, Leo is the leader and Donnie is the tech genius. It is also really cool that almost all the major villains are in the game, and you have to fight one at the end of each level. The designs of these level are typical TMNT settings, subways, city streets, sewers and so on. April and Splinter guide you through your adventure, and you can control any of the four turtles, any time you want. Playing online with friends is also possible and there is an excellent upgrade system. You also have special moves and can select a large variety of perks to help you in your battle. It is not a long game, but you can replay any level you want once you completed the game and there are four different difficulty settings as well. There also some collectibles and if you want you can watch all the cutscenes again as a movie. So all in all, this is a great multiplayer fighting, action adventure game with a nice story, a must play for TMNT fans!… Expand

Everything you know and love about the series is back, but on a much bigger and much more detailed scale. The stellar shooting and fighting sequences blend together better than ever and the platforming, exploring aspects are a lot smoother and a lot larger than we've seen before. The amazing storytelling we are used to from the developers does not dissappoint once again, and this time it is more personal than we've been used to. The acting/voice acting is also top notch as usual, this cast is so perfect together, their performances are simply flawless. The amount of stuff you can do in the game is also outstanding, you can drive a boat, a jeep, can use a grappling hook to cimb up to places you could not before and of course treasure hunting is back as well. The epic set pieces and spectacular action scenes are here also, and as expected you will solve quite a few interesting puzzles as well. Multiplayer has a bigger focus this time around, and it is a lot of fun. The online battles are always action packed and the level designs are extremely well done. Nathan Drake's entry to the PS4 couldn't be any greater, To simply put, Uncharted 4 is the best video game made thus far. Game Of The Year, nod doubt!!!… Expand
Average User Score: 7.4Feb 27, 2015The Resident Evil franchise is one of my favorite franchises in the gaming world. Some fans of the original three titles started criticizingThe Resident Evil franchise is one of my favorite franchises in the gaming world. Some fans of the original three titles started criticizing the last couple entries that it went too far away from the horror genre and became too much of an action game. I personally did not mind the change, but I can see where those voices were coming from. The first Resident Evil: Revelations game was a step back to the horror genre and though it included plenty of action, both older and newer players of the series generally praised it, rightfully so! The latest entry, Resident Evil: Revelations 2 - Episode 1 continues in that direction as it provides plenty of scares and horrific environments filled with zombies and monsters, but it also provides enough action to please fans of 5 and 6. The story in the first episode is also very exciting, probably the best and most interesting one in the series for a long time. It will be told in three more episodes and I can't wait to find out how it will end. The stars this time around are two well-loved characters from the very first game, Claire Redfield and Barry Burton, and introduces two new members as well, Natalia and Moira. Moira is Barry's daughter who gets kidnapped along with Claire at a party and they both wake up inprisoned in an island facility where they try to escape from, while Barry enters the same island in search for his daughter and along the way meets a young girl named Natalia, who also seemed to be kidnapped. With two playable characters in both sides of the story, the co-op also returns as well, whcih I absolutely love because I usually play the Resident Evil games with my brother! The two controlable characters differ vastly though, as Claire and Barry are badasses with weapons and melee kills while Moira and Natalia are more for puzzle solving than action, though they do their killing parts OK when they have to. After finishing the first part of the story, Raid Mode provides plenty more fun as well. It is not as fun to me as The Mercenaries mode was but it's still very good. Unlockables, collectables and upgradable skills will also keep hardcore fans engaged for a long time. They graphics are excellent still on the PS3, and as usual the voice acting, music and the sounds are as good as ever. The weapons also feel great and the martial arts finishers are here too. If you like the series you will like this game as well, very well worth the price! Outstanding!… Expand

I enjoyed everything about it - the fighting is smooth and violent, the driving is fast and fun and the shooting is spectacular and explosive! On top of that, the story is extremely engaging, the narrative is outsanding and the voice acting is as good as it gets. Hong Kong is also a great setting for a sandbox game, it looks beautiful and full of life. There is so much to do and so many things to collect, you don't even know what to do sometimes, you have so many options. The developers also did a great job getting the player deep into two different worlds - the triads and the Hong Kong police force. The main hero, Wei Shen, is an undercover cop who without spoiling the story too much has to make some really hard decisions sometimes regarding what's right and what's wrong. The music and the graphics are superb, and I love how the gameplay focuses so much on combat. The environemntal executions are so brutal and they just never get old! The upgarde system is also very well done, as Wei's martial arts skills get better as you progress, and at the end he becomes an unstoppable badass. There are plenty of weapons as well, and they all feel as they should! From knives to grenade lunchers, you can find them all! And just to name a few things you can do in the city - stop street crimes, help pedestrians, buy cars, clothes, jewelry, apartments, pets, eat and drink at many different spots, go to fight clubs, engage in street races, date girls, do karaoke, collect health shrines, lockboxes, jade statues, do parkour and so many more...it has so much content and there are plenty of awesome DLCs as well. And just top top it all, the last two missions in the story are too of the best missions I played in ANY game. So intense, I had the best time with this game! A must have!… Expand
