Resident Evil 6 actually isn't that bad, why the lackluster reviews?
- date: November 26, 2012
The bad reviews for RE6 scared me away from playing the game at first. But now that I'm finally playing through it I have to say I'm enjoying it more than I thought I would.
Sure, there are almost no puzzles anymore and its much more geared toward action, but Leon's campaign in particular still has the creepy element to it and the enemies are much more vicious and come at you more than enemies in any previous game.
I think reviewers were way too hard on this game only because RE isn't what it was 15 years ago, not because the game itself is bad. Is it a fantastic game? No. But its still a fairly solid one. I'd give it an 8/10 to be honest.
First Reviews are in (Playstation)

Well it's looking good, an italian Playstation magazing has given Homefront 9/10 and I think the UK one gave it similar.
So although it's not a PC review, it tells us 2 things:
1) The single player story and multiplayer balance etc is good
2) KAOS have enough faith they are allowing reviews BEFORE release (and that hasn't been done for ages)
So as long as they nail the "feel" for the PC, it will be awesome
BUT: KAOS release this on Steam in the UK FFS

As the title suggests. I'd like to see some reviews before I buy. If anyone has some then please link them here.
*The Official Amatuer Game Reviews Thread* (post your reviews here on any game of choice)
- date: May 6, 2002
Hi guys. Just thought this wouldn't be such a bad idea cuz I know there are a lot of writers here who would like some exposure for their own game reviews. If you have one then please post it and let others read and rate your review from 1 being the worst and 10 being the best.
To all viewers: remember that these reviews are all amatuer level so do not flame or rate so rashly. Think up good reasons why you thought a review was such and maybe we can get somewhere with this thread.

I've taken the time to collect the more objective Metacritic user reviews:
Worth $30 not $40 but its a diamond in the rough. The graphics certainly could have used more attention and it could have been better programmed (sluggish mouse, no sensitivity option). All that aside it is not your typical strategy game. Actual combat seems to be the worst way to win a match. The game wants you to win by all other means possible before you result to war aka actually how things get done. A.I. isn't the greatest but multiplayer potential is huge as you will have to be truly focused to see anything comin' otherwise you'll get blindsided hard. If you need a game now (holding off till skyrim and SWTOR here) go ahead and get it if you love the franchise, otherwise wait till it drops to $20 bucks its well worth that.
It seems that those who have negative reviews (particularly ****** and ******) seem disappointed that the

As surprising as it sounds, Fallout 3 wasn't the first installment of the series!
What are those games?
Fallout is a series of computer role-playing games (CRPGs) published by Interplay Entertainment and later by Bethesda Softworks. Although set in and after the 22nd and 23rd century, its retrofuturistic story and artwork are influenced by the post-war culture of 1950s America, and its combination of hope for the promises of technology and lurking fear of nuclear annihilation.
The first two titles in the series were developed by Black Isle Studios. Micro Forté and 14 Degrees East's Fallout Tactics: Brotherhood of Steel of 2001 was a tactical role-playing game.
Fallout 1 takes place in 2161 in Southern California and begins in Vault 13, the protagonist's home. Vault 13's Water Chip, a computer chip responsible for the water recycling and pumping machinery, breaks. The Vault Overs
I absolutely loved Brave, wtf at the reviews...

So far it is getting relatively bad reviews but I think the movie was fantastic. It is the first Disney movie to focus on a mother-daughter relationship, the visuals were phenomenal, and the movie didn't play it as safe as people said. I loved it the whole way through.

WOTW Reviews the Uncharted series (spoilers)
- date: January 4, 2012
Hi folks, WOTW here. For as long as I've had a ps3, I've been told to buy the Uncharted series. And, for just as long, I've put it off as I don't pay $60 for video games that can be beaten in a single night.
I've done several truthful yet unpopular ps3 reviews before, so here is another.
I'd like to thank those that first suggested it (Ike and the other Bitters) as I've spent the last week going through the entire series (a dual pack xmas present that actually inspired a full price purchase for Deception.)
As far as ps3 goes, I'd put the Uncharted series in the top 5. This isn't saying much as the Top 5 are:
1. Dead Space
2. God of War
It's true. PS3, has no games
Even now at the end of Deception, I still don't have a good read on the series.
The absolute best metaphor I can come up with for Uncharted is that it is the pretty girl you have a one night stand with after getting out of a very serious long term relationship. It's incredibly fun,
What is A Virus Named Tom? Reviews
- date: May 6, 2012
I regret that I didn't pick it up sooner. But I have it now. I watched a couple videos where they played through the first few levels and thought that the game would get boring. It DID look interesting but that was my only fear. However, the game got mentioned again and I gave it a chance.
There are puzzle levels and then levels that require you to do a lot of dodging with simpler puzzles. I'm hooked and I've already put in 20-30 hours into the game. Of course, I've fooled around and tried to do crazy things on a bunch of levels, but the puzzle themselves are fun and challenging. It has a lot of replay value, especially if you want to get all the gold medals or compete for high scores with your friends. I've played it locally with my wife and she has been enjoying it as well. I can't wait for the full game!
Enough of my thoughts. The following are reviews of "A Virus Named TOM" standalone beta. Feel free to add to this list. The steam build that I have been privileged to
