Review: Assassin’s Creed Unity (PC)

January 22, 2015 // 1 Comment

Assassin’s Creed Unity (PC [Reviewed], Xbox One,  PS4,) Developer: Ubisoft Montreal Publisher: Ubisoft Genre(s): Open World, Third Person Stealth, Third Person Action Adventure Released: November 11, 2014 ESRB Rating: M – Mature Game Version Reviewed: 1.4   I deliberately held off on doing this review because very few if any outlets have bothered to give this game a fair shake post patches. The bulk of what you see out there is either 1.0 or 1.1 when the game was in a far worse state. As of the date I write this: January 1, 2015, the game is vastly improved and evolved from its [...]

Review: Alien Isolation

October 28, 2014 // 0 Comments

Alien: Isolation (PC [Reviewed], Playstation 4, Playstation 3, Xbox One, Xbox 360,) Developer: Creative Assembly Publisher: Sega Genre(s): First person, Survival Horror, Stealth Released: October 7, 2014 ESRB Rating: M – Mature When Alien: Isolation was first announced the reaction of the gaming community was muted with cautious optimism at best coming off of a needless disaster like Colonial Marines that really should have been a fantastic game but unforgivably wasn’t. As more footage and information leaked out the sense of optimism grew in spite of itself including from yours truly. [...]

Review: Sniper Elite 3

July 11, 2014 // 3 Comments

This series is a welcome breath of fresh air against run and gun shooting and you can see from my previous reviews that I'm overall enthusiastic about this series despite some quibbles and annoyances which, unfortunately, remain for this new game. Being a sequel this means I have to be a little less forgiving this time around since there weren't enough fundamental improvements that needed to happen. [...]

15 Minutes of Game: Thief

July 9, 2014 // 2 Comments

Time for another installment of 15 Minutes of Game and this time around we’re looking at a playthrough of the “Lockdown” chapter of Thief on PS4. This is the demo that was added to the PlayStation Store in yesterday’s update (and I can only assume the same demo that was available at launch and then removed without notice soon after). In this game of first person stealth, I failed. Not only did I get the predator label for knocking out guys (at least I didn’t kill anyone), but I also got spotted. And the reason I got spotted was because I hit the square button and [...]

Review: Watch_Dogs

June 4, 2014 // 2 Comments

Watch Dogs (PC [Reviewed], PS4, Xbox One, PS3, Xbox 360, Wii-U) Developer: Ubisoft Montreal Publisher: Ubisoft Genre: Open World, Action-Adventure Stealth Released: May 27, 2014 ESRB Rating: M – Mature Ever since E3 2012, Watch Dogs has been one of the most hyped and anticipated titles on any system and for good reason. The now near legendary and certainly controversial video that Ubisoft showed at the E3 was a jaw dropping, gorgeous looking game that teased a slick cyberhack Grand Theft Auto variant with everything “cranked to 11.” To be fair, nothing was going to live up to the hype [...]

Decide for yourself when you get your hands on Sniper Elite 3’s pre-order bonus “Hunt The Grey Wolf.” In this mission, there’s two Hitler’s in Africa and you get to try and [...]

Review: Thief

March 13, 2014 // 2 Comments

Thief (PC [Reviewed], PS4, XB1, Playstation 3, Xbox 360) Developer: Eidos Montreal   *Nixxes Software BV for the PC. Publisher: Square Enix Genre: First person stealth adventure Release date: February 25, 2014 This is a series that has been on hiatus for too long. Like many other long fans who have held their breath since the mixed bag but IMHO overly hated Dark Shadows, the news of a new Thief game was at first met with jubilation and then as media and details came forth a sense of caution and concerns on certain details. Some of these concerns were well warranted as we have ourselves [...]

Review: Splinter Cell: Blacklist

September 7, 2013 // 1 Comment

Splinter Cell: Blacklist (PC [Reviewed], PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, Wii U) Developer: Ubisoft Toronto Publisher: Ubisoft Genre(s): Third Person Shooter, Stealth Released: August 20, 2013 Price: $59.99 ESRB Rating: M – Mature Splinter Cell has finally “come back.” That’s my short teaser for the theme of this review and many others reviews out there for that matter. This game brings the best aspects of Splinter Cell Conviction and previous pre Double Agent Splinter Cell games and merges those aspects together in a new and extremely satisfying whole. What Blacklist does it does very [...]

Review: Hitman Absolution

December 4, 2012 // 2 Comments

Hitman Absolution (PC [Reviewed], Playstation 3, Xbox 360) Developer: IO Interactive Publisher: Square-Enix Genre(s): Third person action/stealth Released: November 20, 2012 ESRB Rating: M – Mature I’m a long time Hitman fanboy. I view Blood Money as the apex of the series and that hasn’t changed with the advent of this game. Just to get that out of the way. At least once a year I have to fire up at least Blood Money for a jaunt and often times Contracts and Silent Assassin as well. The games are permanent residents on my hard drive. It’s been a long six year wait for [...]
