The Surge is an impressive title from Deck 13 and Focus Home Interactive. The context provided by the story, solid visuals, and gameplay advancements are exciting for how this new kind of ARPG will progress into the future. However, slight mishaps in the graphical department with a lack of separation and an occasional lack of mystery hold The Surge back from being truly excellent.
Sniper Ghost Warrior 3 is a surprising effort from CI Games. If there’s anything to take away, it’s a damn good time. The solid mechanics, the world, and crafting abilities really show the experience of CI Games, marking a pinnacle in the series. However, technical mishaps hold this game back from being truly great. Long loading times and occasional cheese dialogue keep in a realm just below AAA status.
Bulletstorm: Full Clip Edition is an incredibly fun ride, especially for those who have never played the game. The additions justify a full release of the game after six years, adding a good amount of value for fans of the game. However, if you’re not a fan of the original, you’re probably not going to find anything here to draw you in. While issues like GFWL have been cut to allow the game to run on modern systems, the heart of the game is still there – clunky exposition and all. For fans of the game or for those who have never played it, Bulletstorm: Full Clip Edition should be a no brainer even at full price. However, if you didn’t like the 2011 release, you won’t find much here.
