Warning! may contain spoilers! Have a game you'd like reviewed? let me know! Post in here, or PM me. I may not be able to do it though. I have a constraint Money-wise, but I have played a vast number of games, in all genre's.

I've decided I'd start reviewing games as I play them. these could be new games, old games, low key games, or high profile games. Basically whatever I feel like playing, and have.

Currently I'm playing Assassin's Creed III. I've been a fan of all the games so far. and as it looks now, 3 will be no different. Below is a short synopsis of what i've played so far, after which i will give it a preliminary score.

Spoiler


So far the story has been building characters, so the action has been rather tame. but it has been interesting, the graphics are not ground breaking, but good, and the game play is tighter and more responsive than in previous titles.

Preliminary rating 8.5 / 10

A Ten is very hard to get from me. so yeah. theres my review as of now. as i play more i will keep telling you the story, (Spoilers possible of course.) And i will change my rating as i see fit. remember though, these are my opinion so don't decide whether or not you'd buy a game on my word.

What are some future game reviews?


I'm going to be reviewing Farcry 3, right now! tah dah! while i'd like to do a full story review for each game, it's much easier to give an overall rating and some plot points.

My experience with Farcry 3 was brief, but fun, as a fan of the series since the first game, I'd like to think i have good authority to judge it.

Spoiler


The terrific thing about this game is the main character's personality. he isn't a gung-**-kill-them-all kinda guy. he's a kid caught in a bad situation, trying to keep his morality. He (at least at the begining) is teriified of the things he has to do.

The selection of weapons and customization is great, and is the best in the series.
The hunting is fun and you feel accomplished when you make your next rucksack upgrade from hard earned tiger pelts.
If you've played 2 you'll understand this. THE CHARACTERS ACTUALLY BREATH ONCE IN A WHILE. in Farcry 2 everyone talked like they were hopped up on coke.
The landscapes are beautiful and fun to explore, and the driving is entertaining, unlike 2 where it was an unwanted yet necessary chore.
The difficulty is ramped up from the old games, especially when you're fighting pirates and some Komodo Dragons decide to investigate, by attacking all the things in sight.

My major complaint is the complete removal of the games original set piece, the regaining of feral abilities, making your character a feral hunter. but this game is well done and is a fresh experience. so overall I'll let that slide.

Final score 9.3 / 10

A definite buy, the size of the territory alone is worth hours of gameplay, add in the story and side quests, and the co-op, multiplayer, and Farcry's famous map maker, and you have a game that will provide hours of entertainment.

A halo 4 review? fine!

It's be easy because i don't need to do a plot summary. you guys know it.

Graphics - Jesus. rollerblading. Christ. it' took me until five minutes after i started playing to realise the first cutscene wasn't live-action.
in game graphics are pretty good too.

Gameplay- Gameplay as always is 5 seconds of fun, that happens repeatedly. although it can become strenuous during legendary campaigns the campaign is really fun and well scripted.

Story - Having Master Chier have in game dialogue give him a much more human feel. where as in the previous games, he felt like a sociopath. The writing for Cortana, is amazing, and she is easily the most attachable character. And Spartan Ops is shaping up very nicely.

Multiplayer - I have my complaints, but who doesn't. Gameplay and balance is great, and the rotating gametypes keeps it fresh, although most people hate it. It makes you not play the same gametype over and over again. it makes you try other game types, until halo 4 i'd only played oddball a few times. now i play it a lot.

Final Verdict: 9.8 / 10

Obviously, if i didn't enjoy this game i would be a regular forum goer, it doesn't get a ten in my book because while great, it was not a groundshakingly different game.

Mass Effect 3? I'll do the whole series.


Mass Effect - Plot synopsis: http://masseffect.wi.../wiki/Storyline
-----

Story: The story is great and the character's well written, although some of it seems forced on you.

Gameplay: The cover system is wonky, and doesn't work well. which would be fine if it wasn't the main point of combat. find cover, kill things, move on. The weapon overheats can be frustrating, especially when you use a sniper. but overall the gameplay is fun and interesting.

Graphics: the graphics work well enough for the type of game it is, but i feel like the character creation is poor, and you can never get your shepard to look like he/she isn't horribly disfigured.

Rating: 7 / 10

Mass Effect 2 - Plot synopsis: http://masseffect.wi...ki/Storyline_II
--------

Story: the story in this one is very good, and the character's are once again believable. the story can feel a little tedious though. it also is a nice change of pace to be working for the good of humanity, but with an air of danger working with Cerberus. Also, Martin Sheen.

Gameplay: the cover system get a slap in the face and is told to straighten up, so it works much better, with a prompt to enter cover instead of walking at a wall. The thermal clip system Is better than the overheat system, but can be frustrating when you can't find ammo. the addition of heavy weapons in lieu of grenades is an interesting choice, but saving up the ammo to use the M-920 Cain Mini-nuke was very satifying. However the lack of weapon and armor variety has always disappointed me, but is rectified with DLC. Also, armor customization is a welcome addition.

Graphics: Same as 1 but with a larger Palette and more shading.

Rating: 8 / 10

Mass Effect 3 - Plot synopsis: http://masseffect.wi...i/Storyline_III
------

Story: Fantastic! Except for the ending. the ending was written poorly, as i'm sure you've heard about at some point, which prompted a huge fallout (< theres your review Syko. :D jk I'll do one after this.) of anger from fans, so much so that Bioware had to release a free DLC extending the ending. even with the DLC i still don't like the ending. A good story keeps you guessing until the end, than reaches a reasonable conclusion, ME3's ending did not make sense. This is a big black mark on a great game

Gameplay: Great. the game is cleaned up and the controls are tight and responsive, the new melees are fun and the selection of weapons and armor is wide and expansive. it's easy to lose track of time playing the story and multiplayer. Truly a rare case of sequels getting better every time.

Graphics: A Much needed upgrade, but still not fantastic.

Final rating: 9.2 / 10

Overall rating: 9 / 10

The links contain a full summary of the games and any books that go in time with the plot.

Up next will be Fallout 3 / New Vegas.

I don't think I'd ever give out a 10. I've never played a game deserving. Closest though would be the first Half Life or KOTOR

Yeah, a 10 is hard to get from me, the only game i can see giving a 10 to would be Star Wars Republic Commando.

Might do a review of it some point...
