Uncharted 3: Drake’s Deception | Review

uncharted3_standard_t

Uncharted 3: Drake’s Deception, Naughty Dog’s final Uncharted game on the PS3, released in 2011 to critical fanfare. Contrary to this belief, some fans disliked this third game, and they believed that it could not compete with Uncharted 2: Among Thieves. This game has attained a generally more negative reputation than its predecessor in recent years, but it is still a fine game, in my point of view.

Uncharted 2: Among Thieves | Review

Uncharted 2: Among Thieves is a great example of how to make a sequel bigger and better. Released in 2009, this second Naughty Dog production on PlayStation 3 once again stars Nathan Drake, but the stakes are raised, and the gameplay has been smoothed out tenfold since the original. This is probably the best Uncharted game Naughty Dog will ever produce.

Uncharted: Drake’s Fortune | Review

Uncharted: Drake’s Fortune released in 2007, and it was a showcase of what the PlayStation 3 was capable of. It looked more realistic than any other prior system seemed to be capable of, and it was impressive at the time. Naughty Dog showed they had something more to prove than simplistic platformers; however, could the team create something memorable for years to come, or is this first instalment usually skipped over for a reason?

As of yesterday, Blizzard updated Overwatch to include new Summer Games content, so that they can have an unofficial tie in to the 2016 Rio Olympic Games. They promised over ninety new items to be unlocked, but there are a few catches – you cannot buy them with currency but instead through unlocking or buying Loot Boxes, it is time locked, and the items will be unobtainable after the event is over. Let me just write about how I am not too pleased, for a multitude of reasons.

Overwatch | Review

Overwatch is a game that does not follow the norm for first person shooters, but instead has become a phenomenon. It surrounds you everywhere you go, and that is no bad thing, because Overwatch is exceedingly addictive for the longer you play it. Some of that is due to the stunning visuals and audio, while another part of it is how the gameplay feels frenzied.

Star Wars Battlefront | Review

The original Star Wars: Battlefront offered an experience never seen before in games related to Star Wars, with Star Wars: Battlefront II offering an even more refined take on the formula that pleased fans in the first place. Star Wars Battlefront, on the other hand, retains none of the uniqueness of the first two games, instead choosing to rely on the Battlefield engine, Frostbite. For all intents and purposes, this is Battlefield: Star Wars, but does it deliver on the same quality that fans have came to know from the Battlefront name?

Far Cry, up to this point, has been your typical shooter sandbox. How would Far Cry: Primal alter that formula?
