Tough but fair, that's what shines about this game. Cool Areas and Tough boss battles make this game hard and also an amazing experience.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Amazing Spider-Man 2, 5 May 2014
After i played the first Amazing spider-man (and loved it) i thought 2 years later the graphical look of the second game would be much superior to its predecessor, but unfortunately that is one of this games weaknesses. Other people say this game is nothing like the Movie but i haven't seen the Movie so i didn't compare the games story line to the movie's. Playing through the game i had a lot of fun due to the slick web swinging mechanics, using the LT trigger and RT trigger to swing from building to building. the missions themselves unfortunately are rather short and the enemies in them sometimes walk into walls or don't notice that you are fighting the other henchmen right behind them. The boss fights were pretty cool even though they were easy, even on the superhero difficulty. So i didn't know what i was going to expect from this game but i was pleased to see that the game was good enough for me to play through a second time.

4.0 out of 5 stars another great arkham game, 26 Oct. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
after rocksteady left arkham i didn't know what to expect but WB Montreal played it safe and mad a game very similar to arkham city, however the games combat system has been refined slightly to be more quick and realistic.
the deathstroke dlc is very entertaining since deathstroke is one of my fav characters in the dc universe, his character and 2 skins and 2 challenge maps are fun too. there was a problem with a feature called WBID where it loads your account for exclusive items but i was stuck at the game load for ages i had to dashboard a number of times until
i got in the game again.

5.0 out of 5 stars Legendary, 18 Sept. 2013
rayman origins was my #1 game of 2011 with skyrim. and 2013 might be legends.

the game is visually stunning with every inch of the game moving eg the backgrounds.

challenges there are daily and weekly challenges witch will keep you running jumping and fighting your way to the top of the leaderboard.
i got 10th in a daily challenge one.

musical levels are one of my best moments in my experience but the later ones are quite difficult and when you die you get a sense of buzzkill as the music stops.

5/5 10/10

5.0 out of 5 stars Minecraft #1, 3 Sept. 2013
This review is from: Minecraft (Xbox 360) (Video Game)
Blocks and blocks and blocks. no storyline, no "main character" just you and a world to build anything.

Modes:
Minecraft xbox version has 2 game modes survival and creative.

Survival:
Survival is the game mode where you spawn in a world with nothing but your map, you have to build with what you can and craft items to make other items eg. 4 wooden planks = crafting table, used for crafting more and better items.
or 8 blocks of cobblestone = a furnace. (which you will need to cook and eat or you will starve) so then the get more complicated like beds. but you will need to build or find shelter before sundown or the monsters will kill you losing all items but can be reclaimed by visiting the place you died.

Creative:
this ia the mode that gives you all blocks and items to build whatever you want.

Amazing how such a simple game is so popular and addictive.

5/5


Batman: Arkham Asylum (Xbox 360)
Batman: Arkham Asylum (Xbox 360)
Offered by Ace Goods Co. Ltd
Price: £18.99

5.0 out of 5 stars Batman at his Best.., 3 Sept. 2013
four years has passed since "Batman arkham asylum" came out and yet its still as emerging and exiting as when i first played it back in 2009.

Combat:
The combat system in this game is just what you would expect from a batman game, fast freeflow combos and counter all together to create an amazing fight sequence be it 3 bad guys or 30. once you get so far in the game you can upgrade and install different types of abilities and technologies for batman's arsenal, eg, armor upgrades or sonic batterang or abilities like "8 combo allows you to take an instant takedown. Most of batman's fights can be stealthy but more challenging when your trying not to alert anyone.

Graphics:
the graphics are very impressive for a 2009 game some of these settings could easily pass as a 2011 game, from the way batman walks looks and the way everything els looks.

Storyline:
With Kevin Konroy as batman and Mark Hamill as Joker (like the animated series) makes the game complete, the gameplay and graphics could be terrible and these two could still complete it. joker escapes the handcuffs once again and takes over arkham asylum releasing all super villans out of there cells.

Conclusion:
From the great characters and storyline to the addictive riddles the riddler sets out for you this is really the game to get in time for origins.

5/5

3.0 out of 5 stars Assassin's creed 3 Meh..., 2 Sept. 2013
The game looks great graphic wise and combat wise, but i just never fell into this game the way i did with 2 and revelations the game runs smoothly aswell.

Combat:
The combat mechanics in the game are simple (x) to strike and (B)to counter or square and circle for ps3, its very simple and easy to take out a dozen enemys without taking a hit, when in eg. AC2 you held down LT and pressed (x) to counter as soon as the enemys blade took impact. that was exiting and kept you focused.

Free running:
there is a new free running system for AC3 which people will ether love it or hate it, its smooth and easier to get passed citizens without running into them and knocking yourself over. but on the other hand (much like the combat) its very simple, hold down RT.

Story: (mild spoilers)
So its set in the american revolution and "Connor" or Rattonogedoon (something like that) is the character you play as who is a native american, who gets a vision and finds a man called Achilles to train him as an assassin. its a good idea but after Ezio, Connor is very bland.

My opinion and conclusion:
To me assassins creed should be about assassins (assassinations) from AC1 the assassinations have gone from frequent to many to some to rare to none the missions in this game are extremely boring, take this letter to this person and do the same again.
to conclude the review ill say that the game is poor but at times cant be exiting. a point i forgot to say earlier was the naval missions they were for me the best in this game and in my opinion should have been the main focus.

2.5/5
