Surviving Mars: One Drone At A Time

Gameplay:★★★★★ 
Graphics:★★★★★ 
Sound:★★★★★ 
Value:★★★★☆ 
Fun Factor:★★★★☆ 
Overall:★★★★½ 

The game Surviving Mars is one that is both addictive and can be hard as hell at the same time. You would think building a colony on Mars would be easier than what you have to do in this game. Even the easy start part of the game can become quite challenging rather quickly. Making sure you have metals, oxygen, water and more will keep you looking for more. Even with the slow pace of the game you can quickly become overwhelmed with what happens in the game.

Surviving Mars is somewhat unique to other RTS type games that I have played in the past. It has some elements from greats like Civilization and elements from Colonization and others where you are able to get supplies and people from Earth. It blends all of these elements together quite well as you research and build your way to a successful colony on Mars.

Beyond Two Souls is one those game where you have to think, not go in guns blazing. This game has a great graphics, good story, and pretty good gameplay. This game is about this girl name Jodie, that has a spiritual friend, Aiden. This spiritual friend helps her, protects her, takes form in a personal body, and also unlocks doors. This game is like watching movie while playing the game. I don’t know why this game has bad scores, it a good game. IMDB gave it 8.8 and for me, I would this one a 8 as well. Hell, even if Angry Joe plays this game, he would do the same thing.

Expeditions Viking

Gameplay:★★★★☆ 
Graphics:★★★★☆ 
Sound:★★★☆☆ 
Value:★★★★★ 
Fun Factor:★★★★★ 
Overall:★★★★¼ 

You are the successor to your father in a Viking village and you must fix the problems that your father created when he went looking for treasures on the British Isles. Every action that you do and every conversation that you have will determine if you have a successful rule or not. It will also have bearing on how your subjects feel about you and your ability to be able to have others follow you as you try and save your lands from a blood thirsty chieftain who has his sights on your lands.

This is one game that you just might find yourself wondering where the time went. This is not like your usual titles where everything is in 3D but you really wont care as the story draws you in as you are conversing with your subject one moment and then fighting the next in this turned base strategy RPG based on the Vikings and Norse history and mythology.

When I first saw this seafaring adventure game based on Classical Greek lore, I thought it would be cool to give it a try. You chose from different heroes, and build up a fleet of ships, buying and selling goods in the agoras at different ports in the Aegean Sea, and even do a little piracy. You buy and sell ships, like triremes and other battle and cargo ships from the time. There are also quests, but after a time, it was hard to find out where the quests were supposed to be.

Halo Reach

Halo: Reach is one best Halo games that I have ever played in the series. This game has more action, more things you can do, more fun than COD series, and has a map editor. How cool is that? This was Bungee’s last Halo game that they made before 343 Industries took over the series. This game take place shortly before first halo game. The game begins with the planet Reach in the ruins, then flashes back to before the devastating invasion by the Covenant. When play this game, you will see Cortana as ancient artifact AI. I thought Cortana was made by humans, but she is an ancient. The graphics in this game are outstanding. They look more like a CGI movie. If this was movie, this will be great movie. The gameplay is more fun as well. The gameplay runs more smooth, but still lag every once from now. The soundtrack is really good. I sound like the same people who did Final Fantasy music. When I’m playing the game it does sounded like Final Fantasy. I would be cool if Square Enix did Halo. It would look like Final Fantasy XIII, the character would more like anime, and Cortana will look more like Yuna or Tifa. Now for the multiplayer. The multiplayer is really intense.
