4.0 out of 5 stars Fun times, bring friends!, 16 Oct. 2012
= Fun:5.0 out of 5 stars 
Excellent game, quite dark but certainly humorous storyline, tonnes and tonnes of guns and many different possible talent tree setups to suit your own unique play style. Can be a bit boring playing on your own, but the game is designed around the concept of cooperative gameplay so find yourself a friend to play with. Annoying that most places you go to spawn new missions back to hose places after you've trawled your way through that level, requiring you to re-visit particular areas to complete optional quests. Would be nice to have the side quests before you went there.

Definitely worth a look if you're into FPS games.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastico!!, 16 Oct. 2012
= Fun:5.0 out of 5 stars 
Oh wow. Ever since playing the original XCOM games decades ago, there hasn't been anything quite like it, perhaps Valkyria Chronicles being the closest. This re-make of the original is quite simply brilliant by sticking closely to the original formula and adding a few extra elements to spice up the game. It has managed to maintain the suspense and thrills you get during combat, and will get the blood rushing especially when several different X-rays pop up and are inches away from devastating your team. Much time has been spent on coming up with tactical sequences of play to give the best outcome, and a single mis-click could mean the difference between winning and losing.

Like the title says: 'FANTASTICO!!'

RDR is an excellent game that even my girlfriend enjoys playing. Now that alone makes it great!! If you want to chase down criminals, you can, you want to take on the Mexican army, you can, you want to play a few hands of poker, you can! It's good fun with satisfying results! Enjoy!

1.0 out of 5 stars just plain bad and incomplete, 27 July 2011
= Fun:1.0 out of 5 stars 
I was half expecting Hunted to not be a top draw game however I did not expect it to be WORSE than my initially low expectation of the game. I got it due to it's attractive 2-player mode. I love playing co-op with other people, I think it's a great game type that usually leads to loads of great moments. This game however doesn't even support any sort of communication system, like bluetooth voice chat when playing co-op. This is a fundamental criteria for co-op games!

This isn't the only issue with the game. I list them here because I cannot be bothered to write out why they are rubbish:

Story line
Limit to carrying health and mana vials
Forced animation / routes at particular points
Falling through the world via glitches

To name but a few...

Don't buy or rent unless you are super bored with too much money.

4.0 out of 5 stars Fun Tidy Title, 11 Aug. 2010
= Fun:4.0 out of 5 stars 
Magna Carta 2 was definitely a surprise to me. When I first found it on Amazon the game cover clearly shows the game developers pushing the 'sex sells' approach however after reading some reviews I noted that some people really got something out of this game.

Magna Carta 2 is an RPG about a civil war in a small kingdom full of a magical property called Khan. There a 2 types of Khan: elemental Khan (wind, fire, ice, lightening) temporarily built up by mages and strength Khan permanently built up by warriors. Khan is built up by doing standard attacks and Special abilities are conducted by consuming Khan.

The combat system is unique and initially tricky to get a handle on, but once you have understand it, it is intuitive and fun that requires skill, timing and awareness of the situation to get the most out of any combo move you pull off within your combat party group of 3.

So the negatives: The storyline is told several times during dialog ("We have to go to Y to stop X", "Yes, let's stop X at Y", "Right, so we go to Y to stop X"), there are no forms of faster transport when running around the world other than the Avis Transport network and sometimes the scenery image rendering fails occasionally.

Other than that...

The Positive: Enthralling storyline, good fun fluid battle system, good pace and length (I took ~50hrs to complete the game but I was looking for all character's side quests - I missed doing the royal seals) so I think if you do the main quests only it may take 20-25hrs. By this time in FF13 I don't think you have your 1st special ability yet...

All in all if you like RPGs give this a go, if you want to get into RPGs give this a go, if your an epic RPG completionist guru, well think on it cos you should finish it completely in relatively short time period.

Overall: Good game!

4.0 out of 5 stars It's all about team work, 18 Mar. 2010

This review is from: MAG (PS3) (Video Game)
Massive Action Game for the PS3 is an excellent FPS game. Many people complain about it because the graphics are basic and the player movement (especially while jumping) looks awkward and stiff. However, for me I'm happy to turn a blind eye to this because the rest of the game is brilliant! For me, games are about game play and if they look good, that's a bonus but not essential.

It is useful to have a mic for this game and very useful if you can follow orders. The game has 3 main game types:

1) Sabotage, a 32 v 32 game that requires the simultaneous capture of targets A and B to unlock target C, which must be destroyed.

2) Acquisition, a 64 v 64 game that requires the attacking faction to seal 2 prototype vehicles.

3) Domination, a 128 v 128 game that requires the destruction of 2 'locks' to be opened (like targets A and B in Sabotage) before the Domination targets are unlocked. Once any of the 8 domination targets are open, damage can be inflicted on the defending team's assets by controlling these points. If the damage meter fills up, offence wins.

Domination is a very good game type that at various stages puts you in different war type scenarios. To start with you and your squad are give a target to protect against an enemy squad (8 v 8) which could occur in a quiet corner of the map. This of course varies as commanders adjust their tactics. When the 2 'locks' are down your job changes to defending the objectives A-H, which , all things be equal, becomes a 16 v 16 fight, just for your 2 objectives (you get charged with only protecting 2). This mean that your whole army of 128 are pushed into a tight ring consisting of all the final objectives close together, so the groups easily overlap, giving the impression of full on war.

If you are a solo FPS artist that loves seeing 40:0 KD ratios, then please don't play this game. This game requires listening to those in charge, taking orders and passing enemy movement information to your team. It requires taking strategic objectives with your team, which could lead to you having low KD, but wins the game for your faction. Its very enjoyable team-based game.
