Red Dead Redemption Game Review; the Road to Redemption

Written on January 22, 2011 by Kristoff Jones

Red Dead Redemption has set the standard of what a wild west video game (or even a movie) should be like. Every element breaths the world of outlaws and cowboys.

Red Dead Redemption, probably the most decorated video game of 2010 as it was critically acclaimed by various gaming websites and even bagging Spike TV’s Video Game Award’s Game of the Year in 2010. Even though it already had quite a long run already, everyone’s still got their eyes on this game as it recently got nominated for several categories in the 11th Game Developers Choice Awards. So what does make Red Dead Redemption tick? What makes the game so compelling to catch the eyes of every gamer out there? And will we see a back-to-back Best Video Game award when the GDCA kicks in?

The wild, wild west. It’s been done, done, done several times already in video games. But in every singe attempt, we see mediocre, skin-deep interpretations that will make us get sick of the theme. And to be honest, the moment we heard that Red Dead Redemption is going to be a wild west-themed, we got worried. How can RockStar Games pull off a cowboy version of the Grand Theft Auto series? It’s impossible.

Battlefield: Bad Company 2 Vietnam Game Review

Written on January 07, 2011 by Kristoff Jones

It almost feels like a whole new world as Battlefield: Bad Company 2 Vietnam's game mechanics still give the players something fresh and engaging without sacrificing the good 'ol Battlefield: Bad Company 2 fun we've always liked.

Ah, Battlefield. A game where fps has been taken to new heights with sweet graphics and gameplay. And as we enter into a new territory with the Vietnam map pack, it certainly has changed the scenery of how we play the game, while still maintaining the elements that got us hooked in the first place.

We get new weapons, new environments, and new vehicles. And although the Vietnam map pack seems to be your average downloadable content for the series, it’s not. Battlefield: Bad Company 2 Vietnam seperates itself from the rest as it focuses more on close range combat rather than long range, a feature Battlefield: Bad Company is really known for. Not only do the weapons get a revamp, but the entire environment of the maps encourage players to move in towards their opponents should they want a clear shot of their prey. Various zones include underground tunnels and several LOS points that may prove daunting to players who are adept to long range combat, and that’s what Battlefield: Bad Company 2 Vietnam’s purpose of existence.

Each class gets new character models, animations and voices as the atmosphere of the game relives the dark times of the Vietnam war. The maps are impressive to say the least not only because it gives you space to improve your tactical abilities, but also because of the great graphics the franchise is very well known for.

Pain. Suffering. Deathwing's hatred runs through the cavernous deeps as he sweeps Azeroth off its feet, totally changing the face of the planet as easy as you wake up in the morning and eat breakfast. But pain and suffering surely won't describe what we think of World of Warcraft: Cataclysm. Dive into this quick review for newbies and oldies alike.

Hands down, Blizzard has once again outdone themselves as World of Warcraft’s newest expansion, World of Warcraft: Cataclysm replenishes the dwinling mantra of the franchise into a refreshing, charming and epic game it’s been known for since day one. Cataclysm introduces new playable races, new game mechanics, new quests, new adventures, new achievements, new zones, new everything. Even the old zones have gotten a facelift to get with the times, a feat which made some fans cry out of sentimental reasons.

But it’s not all rainbows and butterflies, as several bugs and problems surfaced on the day of expansion. Players particularly in the US realms were extremely disappointed, but Blizzard immediately patched up the wounds with hotfixes.

Let’s do a quick round up of the new features before we get on with the verdict.
