Far Cry 3 is already getting big props for Ubisoft Montreal's job on the PC version. #9.1

Visuals aren't the game's prerogative, performance is. You have to sacrifice a certain level of visual fidelity in order to maximise frame-rate and control response times. It's as simple as at.

Look at any of the biggest multiplayer FPS's of past 15 years. Visuals come last. #1.7.2

How many years have we been asking this question now?

Cod 4 was the greatest iteration of the series and will always be. #6

You're right, it is an opinion. You have one as well and are completely entitled to it.

In my opinion, the game in no way lives up to the proceeding hype. It doesn't mean that I don't like it because it's a mega budget game, it just means that I don't have to like it if my experience isn't the same one echoed by others.

I think you're completely blowing that percentage of gaming journalists out of proportion. Consider Halo 4. Revie... #1.1

I can understand why he might think the initial SET UP is silly, but the game looks to take ambitious story routes that few games tread, particularly when it comes to psychotropic drugs and the push for the insanity metaphor.

I enjoyed Far Cry 2 when many others didn't, and I see this game bridging the gap. Looks outstanding. #6.1.1

Rofl, where did these Socom fanboys come from? Anyone who legitimately thinks Socom had the same impact on the online shooter that Counter Strike did is grasping at straws. #5

Was thoroughly impressed with how polished Sleeping Dogs was. From the story to the hand-to-hand combat to the shooting to the side missions. It's all enjoyable. Any criticism levelled at it for being a "GTA clone" is totally unwarranted.

A great game that deserves a bigger base of fans. #7

Dear God, what passes as an "outrage" amongst gamers sometimes. #28

Glitches are fairly subjective. No doubt the game has plenty, but mileage will vary depending on your experience. I hadn't experienced anything up until Sequence 5, where I started getting no lip movement in conversation, hilarious Bioware-like cutscene bugs, camera locking, falling through the map and times where I would go into a new area with the camera stuck in a tree canopy.

Sometimes they're hilarious, sometimes they're ugly. It hasn't diminished my enjo... #9

Shinji Mikami is a beast. A gamers gamer. I have little doubt that if he's back at the helm of a survival horror game, he can reignite the genre. #6

For all you PC enthusiasts, this bad boy hit Steam for the first time over the Halloween sale. If you haven't already played one of the last great survival horror classics, give it a chance. No regrets.

Finished it a few days ago for the first time and LOVED it. I had played Condemned 2 on PS3, but in terms of story, the first one definitely takes the cake. Another fantastic series that never really got its dues. #7

Glad they chose THAT scene from Spec Ops. Disturbing, but also soul shattering. The mannequins in Condemned too. God help us. #2

It's a tough one. At the end of the day, the critic they assign to the review is either an Xbox Editor or Playstation Editor, thus, they'll be familiar with certain franchises over the course of the platforms history. Whenever it's a franchise like Halo or Uncharted, my preference is to hear from someone familiar with the series.

Like any review though, take it with a grain of salt. #17.2

No doubt. The pressure was certainly on them to deliver. Glad they did. #2.1

To be fair, Bloodshot wasn't a bad game by any means and definitely had some memorable moments (grizzly bear in the cabin anyone?), but suffered from a bizarre plot twist that really took away from its most interesting assets. Worth playing I think, but doesn't reach the same heights that Criminal Origins does. #6.1

Good God. This barely constitutes a sufficient tumblr post. This may be the most pointless article ever written.

Hotline Miami doesn't glorify violence, it discusses our drive as gamers when it comes to killing, the high scores and how it desensitises us. It's about donning the mask for anonymity. When we enter the room with that mask on, we aren't expected to be human, we're monsters.

Oh well, he misses out on one of the best of the year I gu... #2

Oh please. They REALLY couldn't do anything marginally different? Wasn't the end of the 3rd definitive?

I can see why Robert Bowling jumped ship. Creative levels at an all-time low. #6

Catherine is a fantastic game. Horror though? Subjective. I mean, it's about the pressures of marriage and children and dedicating your entire life to your partner, so yeah, it's scary in that sense. #3.1.1

There isn't anything inherently wrong with the gameplay, it plays just like any other third-person cover shooter. Maybe it comes across as generic, but it's the last thing on your mind when you have a story so potent. Similar experience to Silent Hill (although it still plays better than that).

I picked up the game in the 2K bundle during Steam sale. Thinking it would be one of the weaker titles, I decided to blast through it first and leave the best stuff for last. C... #2.1

Worth reading the Eurogamer's review to see the comparison between Warfighter and Call of Duty. Regardless of how tired the formula is, the Call of Duty campaign is always tightly controlled in ways that no other military shooter has been able to replicate. The multiplayer is another story though.

Also lolworthy: Just look at the screenshots. They've stuck a 'MEDAL OF HONOR WARFIGHTER' stamp to every single one because it knows it can't seperate itself fr... #3.1
