So in summary God of War is a beautiful, emotional and exciting trip through Norse mythology with an attention to detail and character you just don’t see very often in triple A games. While the massive shift in style and storytelling was a huge risk for such an established franchise Santa Monica have really done the character justice and refreshed the series without alienating the core fan base or scaring away new players. As a gamer and a wannabe Viking this is easily my current contender for game of the year and definitely one of the highlights of the generation.
In all honesty Space Hulk: Deathwing is a good solid game with plenty to keep you shooting and stabbing your way through wave after wave of aliens for a few good hours at least. Maybe with a little more polish and a few gameplay changes we might have had a real contender in the world of co-op shooters but unfortunately with titans like Left 4 Dead and Gears of War still showing us how it’s done years later, Deathwing just doesn’t bring anything fresh enough to really stand out as anything more than a gimmick. By all means give it a try and I’m sure you won’t be disappointed, but unless you’re a huge fan of Warhammer 40K I just don’t think you’ll be wowed.
Overall, Raging Justice doesn’t bring anything new to the table really – but doesn’t do anything wrong either. If you’re looking for a decent timesink for a few hours with enough nostalgia to keep your inner child grinning, then this is for you – but don’t expect it to last much longer than that, with very little to keep you playing post the main game. Maybe there would be more joy to be had if I’d played the game with a friend in co-op, but I wouldn’t know…since I don’t have friends.
So yes, Illusion is worth a run through if only for the environments and the story of Euclid alone. It’s not often that I get so invested in a storyline, but the tragedy that is Euclid is hard not to get wrapped up in, and I found myself putting up with the repetition and the tedium of the gameplay to find out more. So, if you want something like Limbo or Braid, go elsewhere. If you want to share in one of the most emotive stories I’ve ever seen, and some pretty environments to enjoy it in, then definitely give this hidden gem a go.
You know what I’m done! There’s nothing more to say. It’s clear that there’s a market for this game and is also clear that that market won’t be reading this review. Mostly because they’ll be too busy shining their anime doll collection and cuddling up to a love pillow deciding which fedora to wear tomorrow. If you like Anime good for you but I can grantee you still won’t enjoy this broken whiney mess of a game that had a development team more focused on making tits bounce about than making a fight that made any sense! It’s over! I’m done! Peace out!
To sum it all up. Titan Quest is a boring, ugly and downright obnoxious pile of garbage that shouldn’t have even seen the light of day. With nothing really going for it and without even a sense of “its so bad its good” this is the kind of game you should wait till you see it free to play. Even then? i wouldn’t fucking bother. Just go outside. see your family. Maybe even find true love. This just isn’t for gamers or the human race as a whole.
If you haven’t already than I really cannot recommend Deus Ex: Mankind divided to you enough. With its story of conspiracy and political intrigue somehow perfectly balanced with Adam’s robo arms and ability to shoot frickin lasers. With so many explore able routes and options for dealing with situations there is plenty to keep you interested for several play throughs and even more when you crack on with new game plus!
