The verdict is that the game isn't bad, it's just flawed. I honest to Gwyn don't want to sound like I'm b*tching about the game for difficulty alone, nor do I want to sound like I dislike the game because of how I personally feel about it, I just addressed what any other reviewer would address, but went into more detail with what happened to me. Please don't be angry at me for my opinions, and don't be angry for the run on sentences, I'm comfortable talking that way, because I have strong lungs so I can talk for longer periods of time in real life. ....
Reviewing games isn't easy, even as an amateur writer like myself. Most of the time when you do so you have to ask yourself what it is that makes a great game. Luckily traditional sports games offer a reprieve from this. Instead of having to come up with some weird criteria for why its fun to shoot aliens in the face in game x but not in game y, all I have to do see how the title stacks up to its real world counterpart. Based on those merits alone MLB 14 The Show might be the best sports game of all time. If you're a fan of Americas pass time who either switched over to a Playstation or you just have not given The Show a chance before, I'm here to tell you that you should buy this game. Everything from barehanded catches by the second baseman, to heart stopping leaps at the wall are all here and they're all perfectly represented. Even the freak occurrences that drive fans nuts will happen. For instance today I played a game and after hitting the ball hard up the middle as I had countless times before,...
The years between 1997 and 2001 were the golden era for Squaresoft. This powerhouse developer released four main Final Fantasy titles (7, 8, 9 and 10) of incredibly high quality and as a result, made a hefty profit. What happened next is something that shocked and disappointed many loyal fans. Square decided to do things differently (It probably didn’t help that the evil Enix merged with their company, forming Square-Enix). In the following 13 years, up to this point, only two main Final Fantasy titles were released (XII and XIII). So what were they doing with their resources, you ask? Releasing just about anything else they could imagine branded under the Final Fantasy name. We saw movies, remakes, online games, re-releases, and most importantly in the context of this review, direct sequels! Despite constant, heavy criticism and reduced sales, they kept up the act. Final Fantasy XIII, the most recent main title, received two sequels, and the second; Lightning Returns is something that I felt I had to...
You take a bald martial arts master named Jason Statham, pump him full of electric and you have Cole McGrath, the protagonist of one of Sony's flagship exclusives. Infamous, as said, puts you in the shoes of a supercharged delivery boy. When Cole McGrath wakes up in the epicentre of a huge crater, he sets out on a mission to find out who planted the explosive device on him and why. Along the way he'll learn to control his powers more as well as learning new ones. Empire City will be your playground to run around and save civilians, or kill them, using your powers. The city is in ruin, with gangs running the show and other super powered entity's controlling them. Most of what you'll have to fight are just regular gang bangers with rifles but you'll have to face the odd enemy that is special and might have a power or two of his own. There's plenty to do in the City, with side missions and collectibles, as well as buildings to climb up. The city doesn't feel as alive as some games, but being as old as it...
Time to use your phone as a weapon, without throwing it at someone's head

After the 7-8 month delay that left many avid gamers fuming, a contender for most anticipated game of 2014 and GOTY has arrived. Watch Dogs, dubbed the spawn of GTAV and Assassins Creed, puts you in the hacker shoes of Aiden Pearce. At first Aiden is a likeable guy. Cares about his family, does the right thing (though you can choose not to, and become a menace to society), becomes a vigilante of the city of Chicago, and generally fights crime. After an attempted hit on him goes south, killing his Niece, Aiden sets out on a journey across Chicago, using the resources and his magic-like abilities to get to the truth. I found it to be a slightly contradicting story, with you able to continue the mask of the vigilante, fighting crime only to set out on a course of personal revenge, killing 100's of people along the way. Nevertheless, you'll like Aiden for a while then realise he's a bit boring, and everyone else in it from his sister and the main bad guy to his best friend and Nephew who barely talks has a lot...
Released in 2014 by Obsidian Entertainment, South Park: The Stick Of Truth could best be described as a poor man's Paper Mario. They're both very similar not only in gameplay style, but also in that its sense of humor helps carry you through an otherwise serviceable storyline. However, where Paper Mario dabbles into Mario lore and puts a rather creative spin on it, The Stick Of Truth is so chock full of South Park goodness that it's fine that it feels like a typical episode of the show. Had this been handled by anybody else, the references would stick out like a sore thumb and I'd be wondering why they buggered it up, but given that the creators themselves did the writing, they manage to make the references subtle enough so that you can feel like you got it without having your intelligence insulted. It's the kind of game that keeps going with the joke, rather than letting the reference be the entire joke. As a result, it's a love letter to South Park fans and people who enjoy simpler RPGs with a more light...
The Introduction: While the beginning of 2014 had thus far seen the release of a few RPGs that all stand out in their own unique ways, one that presents the most crass style and rudimentary substance is South Park: The Stick Of Truth. Now, the idea of South Park being a turn based RPG made by an American developer with the script being penned by Trey Parker and Matt Stone themselves is one that's full of intrigue. How good will it turn out considering that a) the South Park license hasn't exactly been used in any good video games, and b) Obsidian Entertainment have not only never done a turn based RPG before (KOTOR 2 isn't quite turn based, it's still very much in real time) nor have they actually completed a game before (the fans had to patch KOTOR 2 so that it'd have about 500 less bugs and an ending; need I say anything more about that). What comes as a result is a game that manages to provide the player with a heavy abundance of South Park fanservice and gameplay that could be best described as a poor...
South Park is one of my favorite TV shows ever. Between its biting satire, its tendency to dip into "don't go there" type of humor and the plain gross out shit, it's a hoot and a half to sit back and watch the construction paper fireworks go off! Sure, it's gotten shaky in the past 8 or so years, but when it's on point, it's on point! That's pretty much the case for South Park: The Strick Of Truth – it's either as funny as all get out or kind of unfunny. A lot of this is because Trey Parker and Matt Stone wrote the dialogue and story for the game while Obsidian just did the game parts, and you can't exactly pump out gold and only gold for over 15 years. Speaking of game parts, with some concessions, the game part is quite well done too. It manages to take the Paper Mario formula of somewhat more interactive turn based battle systems and load them up with plenty of style. Sure, the style is courtesy of the show itself, but the way that everybody uses the source material is enough to make South Park fans...
Oh well my apologies, I will admit that I was being a little unfair to the game, and I will edit accordingly, but the friendly AI is still inexcusable, as is the framerate.
This game would've been so much better if it was just in real time instead of having all of those gauges. I liked it in Final Fantasy 12 and KOTOR, but Lightning Returns was begging to be in real time. Oh, and if the story was actually any good. I also have a suspicion you probably might not like Majora's Mask.
