Journey Review


Journey is a game I've been meaning to review for some time now, and I think the name speaks for itself. Journey is a 3-d platformer with an emphasis on exploration and investigation as you traverse the sands and ancient civilization. There was some problems with development, heads butted, extensions on deadlines had to be made, as well as working with a limited budget and overall manpower. I've read Journey originally started out with just seven dedicated and driven developers working on it. I'll cut to the chase, this game is excellent, and if you own a PS3, you'll want to buy this game . But now, for the review. Let's get to it.

BioShock Infinite Review

BioShock Infinite

After a 10-15 hour campaign, a mesmerizing introduction, some scorching gameplay from start to finish, and an ending that may tickle your brain for a couple days to come - perhaps even giving some a headache as they go out of their way to truly make heads or tails of it - BioShock Infinite proved to be a breathtaking game to say the very least. But that's not to say it's the "perfect game" or the best of its generation. Granted, BioShock Infinite is indeed spectacular both in size, scope, story, and gameplay. But if you're looking for a review with that magic 10 out of 10, be forewarned  I am among the few who believe this game falls a little short of the considerable hype. For those already interested, as always, here is a link to Amazon so you can check out the prices . And if what I said bothers you (I'm expecting some backlash for this), hear me out. BioShock Infinite is a brilliant game. Is it perfect? A TEN out of TEN? Sadly, no. And believe me, I had a feeling it would be. So before you come at me with your pitchforks and torches, hear me out.

SimCity Bugging Me Out!


Yes, we've all been waiting for SimCity, haven't we? And of course, most of us bought into the hype and believed the newest SimCity would be the best to date. And after such a disastrous launch, many were left scratching their heads at a loss for words. Well, if that was you, I suppose you can find some solace in the fact you were one of many, thousands, in fact. Is SimCity really worth it, is it really? Here's my take. I wanted to wait a while and try to review the game AS IT IS at this very moment. As always, if you're thinking about it, here's a link to Amazon. But for the rest of you, my fellow mayors, let's talk some SimCity.

Tomb Raider Review

Tomb Raider

Wow, has 3-d platforming come  a long way. Just looking back at the first few Tomb Raider games is enough to almost make you laugh. Get ready for an intense game, my friends. Many have waited at the edge of their seats for this game, and despite the controversies ie Laura being "handled" by the bad guy, etc, this is a game most will enjoy. Tomb Raider is a game I've been looking forward to. If you're thinking of buying the game, here's a link to Amazon. Most fans of Ms. Croft will want to. For the rest of you, perhaps this review will convince you to try the game for yourselves and make your own decision.

Tomb Raider Platforming

The newest Tomb Raider nails heart-stopping, nail-biting leaps and Hail Mary's and crashes, and climbs, and snatching, and, yeah, I can go on for a while. Though not quite the badass double pistol shooting Laura most of us know and love, this younger albeit more inexperienced Ms. Croft gets the job done; and she looks exceptional while doing it. Her movements are so natural and fluent, even making small adjustments as she catches ledges and climbs, you as the player feel the experience all the more. You almost feel her exertions and fatigue. I'll put it to you another way, not only is her every movement believable, but I'm sure I'm not the only one sitting on my couch thinking I'm outta shape compared to this unassuming archaeologist.
