Bullets, Titans and Parkour:Titanfall 2 Review

Titanfall 2 Review

Titanfall 2 Review:

Titanfall, welcome back. The first game was an interesting mix of foot soldier and titan. It was the start of jetpacks and parkour. This led Call of Duty to do the same. There were some problems with the game; mainly the campaign being multiplayer only. That makes playing the game alone, incredibly hard. The player base was split due to the DLC and made people playing it dwindle. However, that is the past and this is now. Can Titanfall 2 rise above the other shooter titans Battlefield and Call of Duty? Does this game improve upon the first one? Let’s find out!

Respawning and fighting in the Great War: Battlefield 1 Review

Battlefield 1

The battlefield series is well known for its vehicle combat, squads, and destruction.  These are the hallmarks of the series. It’s great fun when your team works together. It’s frustrating when it’s not. DICE has always created battlefield a delicate mix of frustration and joy. Battlefield one builds on this formula, but, does not follow in Call of Duty footsteps. Battlefield 1 takes place during the Great War, World War 1.

Is this a game worth playing? Should developers make more games in the era? Let’s find out! The system I used to play this game is an i7 2700 with 16 GB of RAM, 4 TB hard drive and Nvidia 960 graphics card. I used an AOC gaming monitor, Logitech Gaming Pro mouse, and Corsair keyboard.

Rainbow Six Siege Review

First person shooters games are a dime a dozen. They are numerous, popular and above all, the same. Rainbow Six Siege hopes to change the formula, or at least, be different. Let’s see if this slow-paced, attack and defend strategy resonate with gamers. Also, if it’s any good because frankly, that’s why we play games!

Metal Gear Solid V: Phantom Pain Review

Snake is back in Metal Gear Solid V: Phantom Pain. Yes, get your cardboard box ready and be on alert for exclamation points, because we are going to Afghanistan and Africa.

As the Story Goes… 

It’s been nine years since the events of ground zero and things are not looking for Snake… or big boss. You wake up at a hospital. Trying to focus your eyes while the nurse tends to snake. Then Skull Face‘s men come to track you down. Snake must escape before they kill him. It’s a good thing he has helped! This starts Big Bosses journey. One with many explosions, child soldiers, saving animals, and slow motion. The game goes through two chapters, but it felt incomplete. There could have been more story to the game, or that chapter two needed more to it. I will not give away anything but chapter one felt like an action movie, chapter two hit that melodramatic note. It was like viewing a reality TV, that actually wasn’t trying to be “real.” The great parts about it were the inclusion or child soldiers when Snake/Big Boss travels to Africa. It was a welcome inclusion to not shield use from what happens in other parts of the country. Even though it may be trivial it helped bring some reality to a virtual game world. All the characters seemed to be common archetypes.  Silent hero fixing the world, the gunslinger with a cool demeanor, the commander out for revenge and much more. The story does play out like an 80s action movie (mostly). There’s also a forced love story, that is tragic. It all adds up to a great 80s action movie. So, if you’re looking for a spectacular game that mimics 80s action movie, you’ll love this game.

Alien Isolation Review

It’s that time of year already! Time for all the scary survival horror games to come out. This year it’s time to dust off that old motion tracker and get back to DOS computers! Creative Assembly takes a stab… uh, face hugger?…. To this storied franchise. Could it be better than Aliens; Colonial Marines? Which, to be honest, is not hard to accomplish, but still, this game will be compared to anyways. Let’s see how scary, and the most important part, fun this game could be!
