Serioius Sam 3: BFE Review

Serious Sam returns in this retro throwback FPS.

Serious Sam 3: BFE

In every iteration of the Serious Sam franchise, Croteam has emphasized an old school feel. Hordes of enemies, large open areas to take them on, and of course, a heaping helping of over the top violence. Serious Sam 3:BFE holds true to these ideals. The game is rife with gore, aliens, and ample space to kill them. Despite the number 3 in the title the game is both a prequel and a remake of the original Serious Sam, but the story is far from the first reason to play this game.

Serious Sam 3: BFE

The game starts out somewhat misleadingly to veterans of the series. The first few levels, in particular, are the exact oposite of what gamers have come expect from the franchise. In a slow tutorial style of play, Sam goes through small corridors with limited weaponry at his disposal, without any real hordes of enemies. However, the pace quickly shifts to what players expect from Sam - an over the top, downright outrageous experience. From that point, the game sticks with the goal of keeping the game as close to old school as possible. The combinations of monsters in the hordes get increasingly entertaining and difficult. Serious Sam 3 is stressful and rewarding. The hordes of enemies are unforgiving and challenging, but walking across the field of battle after eliminating droves of mental's forces can be cathartic.

The Binding of Isaac Review

Hide from your mother in this trek through a basement of nightmares.

The Binding of Isaac

Taking a break from Team Meat projects following the success of Super Meat Boy, Edmund McMillen has teamed up with Florian Himsl to bring us the somewhat odd game The Binding Of Isaac. Isaac tells the tale of a boy, Isaac, whom of which was forced to escape into his basement to hide. What is Isaac hiding from, one may choose to ask? Why what any normal individual chooses to hide from, his crazed mother, who was instructed by the voice of god to kill her son. If this happens to sound a bit familiar that's because it very well may be for those that are particularly religious. The Binding of Isaac is more or less a retelling of a biblical tale but without really focusing too heavily on the religious aspects for anything more than pure inspiration.

The Binding of Isaac

The Binding of Isaac is a randomly-generated RPG Shooter. Controls of the game are nothing more than the WASD keys for movement and the arrow keys to shoot with 2 more buttons tossed in for use of items while the mouse is a possible alternative for shooting. The RPG elements mentioned come in the form of different items the player can come across. This includes, but is not limited to, a crown of thorns that increases damage, a hearty breakfast that increases max HP, or a remote that will teleport Issac to the current levels shop instantly. The number of items within the game and finding them all within one go is anything but possible.

Age of Empires Online Review

Age Of Empires Online

The classic RTS franchise goes free to play.

Age of Empires is a well known and loved series in the RTS genre. The latest installment of the popular Age of Empires series plays nothing like any other game in the series. Age of Empires Online is the first game in the series to be free to play and use a micro transaction store as a means to make money from the game. The many changes to the series will be good for some and may invite a whole new audience, but fans of the previous installments may leave this game with a sour taste in their mouth. The most drastic difference between its predecessors is the bright cartoon feel of the game. Graphically the game is nothing like any other in the series. All of the other games have been realistic. The intro movies to the other games have been serious and sometimes inspiring, but Age of Empires Online does none of that. The trailer for the game is a funny. All in all the graphics of Age of Empires Online are well done if not somewhat cheesy, but it seems like that is exactly what they wanted the game to feel like. The game does look very pretty, but not prettier that Age of Empires 3. That game was graphically brilliant, but all of the colors in Age of Empires Online are bright giving the game a very cheery feel something that none of the previous games have had. The cartoony feel of the game  is not necessarily good or bad, but a fan of the older games may not be happy with this change.

Age Of Empires Online

At its core, this game plays like most other RTS titles. Developer Robot Entertainment has added some interesting RPG elements here, that make it less accessible for those looking solely for skirmish play. For better or worse, there is no skirmish mode to be found. Instead, players create a capital and receive quests from a few citizens in their kingdom. As these quests are completed, new in-game buildings and units are unlocked, experience is earned, and the level of the players' capital is increased. Fortunately, the quests are both varied and numerous. At its core, the capital city has something of a Sim City feel to it. Outside of the quests players will be building and expanding their capital.
