Life Is Strange (2015)
An Amazing Game!
I have to say I'm loving this game so far and I can't wait for the other episodes to be released. I first played a trial version so that I can get a better experience for myself to see if it's worth playing and sure enough, it was. I loved how you can make choices and I also loved the fact that you can rewind time so you can see the alternative outcome of choices you make. I like the game's characters, Max and Chloe, they have a nice friendship despite not seeing each other for years.
The acting is good and so is the writing, though sometimes it can be bad and a bit dumb, but there are times when the writing is very strong and exciting, especially during the ending of Episode 2 "Out of Time." I love exploring the places Max goes to such as the campus, her dorm, Chloe's house etc, as it gives you a little freedom. The trophies aren't so bad, they're basically just bronze trophies for taking optional photos, one gold for completing episode five and my favourite trophy at the end, platinum (PS3)!
Overall, I think this is a great game that I think you should take a look at, especially if your into choice making and fantasy-adventure type games.
Not as Great as I Thought!
When I first saw the trailer I couldn't wait to see it but it kept getting delayed and that really annoyed me. But after two years of waiting someone posted the full movie on YouTube and I was so excited to watch it, but that all changed after the movie at the end as I was like "I waited 2 years for this?!"
I mean the cast was good, I knew some of them so I thought it would a good movie, but it wasn't. Too be honest I think the writing could of been a bit better as nothing really much happens for the first 40 mins or 50 mins or so. The scares could of been better cause a ghost hand grabbing some of the characters wasn't scary at all.
Overall, the movie could of been better if it had better writing, scares and I would of enjoyed the twist ending if some people had kept their mouths shut. This movie is not worth your time and I wouldn't watch it again or recommend.
Murdered: Soul Suspect (2014)
An Excellent Crime Game!
I have to say I really enjoyed this despite some negative reviews critics have given it. When I first saw the E3 trailer for it I was really excited to play it, but when it was released I was surprised by the ratings that were given by gaming websites such as IGN, who gave Murdered: Soul Suspect a 5.5/10 which in my opinion should be higher.
Anyways, I thought this was excellent, playing as a ghost and solving your own murder got me wanting this game it's unlike any other crime games I play and that's what I thought was so cool about this. To be honest, I didn't find the graphics bad I thought they were quite good, the writing was great, the characters were interesting enough, the demons were really creepy and the ghost abilities were really cool.
But I have to admit I didn't like some things such as Salem, it's interesting but I don't like the fact that there's no map so you don't know where you're going and there isn't much to do except find collectibles, possess people but you can't do much when possessing people as you can only read their minds.
The twist I was kinda of disappointed with, but I was still surprised when it was revealed to be Abigail as "The Bell Killer." Though I was surprised when I saw that Abigail possessed Ronan (before he was killed) to kill Sophia. And also, it would of been better if it was a living person committing the murders instead of a ghost who possess people to commit them.
Overall it was a great experience with interesting characters, good twists, superb writing and good quality graphics. But may fail to impress due to it's short gameplay (I finished the game the day after I got it.) But if you're interested in crime/mystery games I would recommend this!
The Wolf Among Us (2013)
Another Masterpiece From Telltalle
I love Telltale Games because their known for decision making in their games where you choices affect the story and I love the fact that I can control the game the way I want to. After completing episode five, it left me wanting more, and I hope they make a season 2 like they did with their other game "The Walking Dead."
It's a game I've never played before, a game with all fairytale characters such as Beauty and the Beast, Snow White etc. But its not the way I remember them, this game is more of a mature version as many characters (or Fables as their referred to) are founded murdered and its Bigby's (who we play) job to find out who killing them before it's too late. It's really interesting to see how it all turns out and I cant wait to find out what happens in the last episode.
Excellent writing, likable characters, exciting choice making, great graphics and best of all fun to play. The trophies (PS3) or achievements (XBOX) are extremely easy as their earned after completing chapters in each episode so if you own a PS3, it's a great way to earn a platinum!
Overall, it's a very enjoyable game which I think people who like all mystery and thrillers will definitely like and of course anyone whose a fan of Telltale Games would definitely have this recommended by me!
The Last of Us: Left Behind (2014)
Best DLC This Year
I love "The Last of Us" and when I heard about a DLC (downloadable content) for it and knew I had to buy it. To start off I love the relationship between Ellie and Riley, it shows that even though they live in a world with infection they have each other to look out for.
The infected are really creative, they have their own name, different movements and sounds when the player is spotted. But the annoying infected is the Clickers, their blind but are attracted to movement and so when I try to kill one while it runs towards me I get killed (so only kill it from behind.)
My favourite part about this is when humans and infected are in the same area together and I throw something and it starts a fight against the humans and infected which is really cool and also quite handy so it saves me so ammo.
Overall, Left Behind is an amazing experience with fun mini-games, exciting gameplay and well-written dialogue it is certainly a must- have for people who've played "The Last of Us."
The Last of Us (2013)
Best Game of 2013
I absolutely loved this game! This is the first game I've played by Naughty Dog and I have to say I was very impressed with this game for a first impression.
The graphics are astonishing and brilliantly detailed and bring everything to life, the controls are easy to handle, the dialogue during cut-scenes and when playing the game are written amazingly and the characters have great relationships with one another.
The enemies are amazing, they have their own names, sounds, attacks, movement and are completely different from infected enemies in other games.
Overall, this is one amazing game, probably the best game I've played in 2013 because of its well written dialogue, brilliant graphics and unique designs on the characters and enemies.
I would definitely recommend this and would definitely play it again after a couple of months so I don't remember what happens. Can't wait for the sequel!
It's OK, but it could of been better!
I am a big fan of Family Guy and when I heard they were having a 2nd game I knew I wanted it. Until I saw some screenshots and the graphics were how should I say, not good. But I still gave it a chance and I bought it on the PS store for £19.99 and played it. And well, it was alright I guess. Though the thing I didn't like was the number of characters quotes and clips were used from the show. I mean I would of thought the creators and writers would come up with something new for the game, but they didn't. So using the same jokes and gags over again was kind of a let down.
Now I was hoping the graphics would be great because this came out in 2012 so I don't understand why they didn't use a better engine to make the graphics look like they do nowadays. Another thing I didn't like was the challenge (not in story mode) where you had to take a certain number of pictures before time runs out, the thing I didn't like about was the amount of enemies running towards you and hitting you whilst you're trying to take the pictures. I mean I couldn't even get half the number of pictures needed on easy!
So next time, Family Guy decides to make another game, they should hopefully improve on the graphics and write new jokes and gags. For now as a big fan of the show, I'm still playing it to see how it goes. I would recommend you watch some gameplay on YouTube before deciding to buy it!
Rockstar Never Let us Down!
The game is absolutely brilliant! And you know it's available on the PS3 store for £7.99 which I think is a great offer because its so worth it. I first bought it when I had the PS2, but it kept freezing on me and I was so disappointed because I never got the chance to complete it. Then I saw it on the PS store and I got it straight away and played it. I'm also a fan of the GTA (Grand Theft Auto) and RDR (Red Dead Redemption) series. The game is full of surprises, e.g. friends become enemies, enemies become friends.
The violence isn't that bad like GTA and RDR, as a review said "There is no blood or killing," they're not wrong. It's mostly fists, bats etc. With this I can see what boarding school is like. The environments are very well made, nice little humor, some strong language and a bit of sexual activity. I read a lot of reviews (as parents probably did to see if this is a game for there kids) and there all giving Bully/Canis Canem Edit a 8 or 9 out of 10 rating! Trust me its not as bad as you think it is, when you play it for a while you won't stop playing!
Fans of GTA and RDR will definitely enjoy this as much as I did!
Walkers Ain't The Problem In This Game, It's The Game Itself!
I'm really disappointed with this, the graphics are awful and too be honest really ugly, and I don't understand, Activision made this game, the company that made Call of Duty, a game series with much better graphics and of course Family Guy: Back to the Multiverse, another game with terrible graphics and a really disappointment.
You can't upgrade or customise your weapons to make them more powerful, you can't kick and thing that I found stupid was the fact that you can't jump on big cars like pick-up trucks.
The walkers ain't scary looking and if you were surrounded by a horde and on top of a car you would easily see that some of the them have the same faces. When I had two walkers coming towards I thought if hit one of them with my weapon then the other next to it will get hit as well, but it doesn't, whereas in other zombie games such as Dead Island when you hit a zombie other ones next to it will get hit as well.
You can help survivors in different areas, but all you do is retrieve stuff for them like batteries for a radio and that wasn't really much of a challenge, but if they told you to find someone they knew like a friend or loved one to see if they're alive or not would of been a bit better cause it raises the question, are they alive or not? If you have a survivor in your group with a low condition or there isn't enough room in your vehicle then you'll have to dismiss them which doesn't sound bad as there's no dialogue of them begging to stay or something like that and not much is told about them so you wouldn't really care about their fate.
The only thing I liked about this game is that the Norman Reedus and Michael Rooker from the TV show do the voices of their characters they play in the show.
So you're a fan of the TV show like I am then I strongly suggest that you avoid this game due to it's terrible graphics and it's lack of challenge.
The Walking Dead 400 Days (2013)
Pulp Fiction + Zombie Apocalypse = Walking Dead 400 Days
I'm a big fan of a Telltale Games "The Walking Dead Video Game" and so I wasn't let down by there "special episode" (that's what they call it.) Basically each story is like Pulp Fiction, it all leads up to one story. The release of the full game is coming This Fall (probably October, for Halloween.) I still love the choice makings such as telling the truth or a lie and free a person or kill them. I read some other reviews from gaming websites such as IGN and they that the graphics are still buggy. But I don't mind the graphics in fact I think their fine, they probably thought that we new tech that they'll how should I say, polish it up a bit.
And the stories still give us those intense and exciting gameplay moments that will lead up into one which we will find out this fall. The dialogue is perfect and voice acting couldn't be better, the designs are great looking and environments are amazing.
This is a game that I would recommend to anyone who's a fan of zombie games 'cause they will have a great time and £3.99 is a great offer, trust me you wont be disappointed!
