Max Payne 3 review snippet What bits are on display? Boobs? Dongs? Erect or floppy? Give us details. LOTS OF DETAILS.
I faintly remember a pair of tits and a hairy armpit. It's not really that kind of a game.

It's relatively linear, grind is mostly irrelevant.

Dark Souls III review review snippet Just how violent is Dark Souls III review?
Violence is the key mechanic of this game. Everything is dead, although everything still moves. If you don't kill it again, something or somebody else will. It's not very gory, though.

Half-Life 2 review snippet Are the aliens in Half-Life 2 scary?
The first time I played the game, I found a certain passage of the game scary, but the aliens, overall, are not scary.

DARK SOULS II: Scholar of the First Sin review snippet Would you read more of DARK SOULS II: Scholar of the First Sin's lore outside the game?
I did. The game leaves a lot of points up to the player to interpret. There is a nice internet META about finding the most plausible explanations.

It's so full of immature cliché, it can only be made to entertain adults.

FINAL FANTASY IX review snippet How much flexibility do you have in FINAL FANTASY IX to choose your party?
Although there are only eight or so characters, it felt like the first Final Fantasy, where it could matter who you picked for your active party.

UBERMOSH review snippet Does UBERMOSH feel authentically cyberpunk?
I'd call this "post cyberpunk". It's a distant future, space is sufficiently colonized, there are aliens. It has this strong cyberpunk vibe, though. I'd say it feels sufficiently cyberpunk to carry the tag.

Far Cry 4 review snippet How much fun are the weapons in Far Cry 4?
There are many weapons, most of them different enough to be interesting. The gun play is solid, as it should be expected in a shooter of this caliber.

DARK SOULS™: Prepare To Die™ Edition review snippet How good are the sounds in DARK SOULS™: Prepare To Die™ Edition?
The sounds are excellent. Sound is pretty important in this game. I can locate and identify almost every event in the game with my headphones, which is very helpful.

Actually sandbox means every open world game or a game where you can have some choices made by your own. I know that sucks. I would really like that openworld games would somehow be divided from the true sandbox games like minecraft, dwarf fortress and garrys mod.

BaltasarOnMeth Avatar

You are mistaken. There is no universally accepted (or even acceptable) definition. A "sandbox" can be "open world", but it doesn't have to be. Those are two different genres/tags/descriptors, but you can have one without the other. We often see "Open World + Sandbox", because they make a good match. The opposite of "Sandbox" is "Theme Park", a tag that can also be given to both, "Open World" games and games with a rather confined world building or even no noteworthy game world at all.

The aliens are not scary, but they are interesting enemies, that will come down on you hard, if you don't understand how they work.

Dying Light review snippet How good an FPS is Dying Light?
There is not as much shooting involved, as the S in FPS suggests. While guns are an option, the game's focus is mostly on close combat and parcour. The guns feel solid, no complaints.

Zombie Army Trilogy review snippet How scary are the zombies in Zombie Army Trilogy?
I don't find zombies scary, I grew up on B movies and horror games. They are like hard rain or heavy snow, a force of nature. The Nazi zombies in this game are hilarious, but I'm German, maybe that's that.

In the old Final Fantasy tradition, FF13 is not grindy until you try to kill the optional bosses, then it turns into a long and boring grind.

It's different from the usual Metal Gear stealth. You don't try to escape once you've triggered an alarm, you just go on.

Resident Evil / biohazard HD REMASTER review snippet How scary are the zombies in Resident Evil / biohazard HD REMASTER?
The zombies in the Remaster are probably as scary as RE zombies get. I'm not sure, why people find zombies scary. As in every RE, the zombies are the standard obstacle, I'd really worry more about whatever other creatures you might encounter. However, the Remake makes killing zombies even worse than letting them roam the house, because if you don't kill them with a headshot (RNGsus) or burn them (limited flammable supplies), they come back even stronger.

Why do gamers stop playing Borderlands 2 after playing for many hours
Repetition. Whilst Borderlands frequently swaps zones and provides new encounters, mission design is largely the same throughout the game, and often enemy design repeats too. Playing solo also hinders the experience.

Borderlands 2 review snippet Borderlands 2 has a huge range of DLC. What's worth buying, and what's worth ignoring?
1. The Story DLC are gold. 2. The character DLC "Psycho Pack" and "Mechromancer Pack" add new, interesting characters. 3. The "Game of the Year Edition" contains: "Borderlands 2, Borderlands 2 - Captain Scarlett and her Pirate's Booty, Borderlands 2 - Psycho Pack, Borderlands 2: Collector's Edition Pack, Borderlands 2: Creature Slaughterdome, Borderlands 2: Mechromancer Pack, Borderlands 2: Mr. Torgue’s Campaign of Carnage, Borderlands 2: Sir Hammerlock’s Big Game Hunt, Borderlands 2: Tiny Tina's Assault on Dragon Keep, Borderlands 2: Ultimate Vault Hunters Upgrade Pack" This is the interesting stuff. You don't really need anything else. 4. If you played through everything and don't want to play another game but stick with BL2, get "Borderlands 2: Ultimate Vault Hunter Upgrade Pack 2", it's on the thin line between scam and content, it lifts the level cap and adds content. Since it's not part of the GotY and the game acts up in MP, if the DLC don't match between players, only buy this, if you're sure you need it. 5. The "Headhunter" addons add quests. I find 2.99 per pack a bit too expensive. This is basically more of the same for a lot of money. 6. The 0.99 priced DLC only add skins. Buying those is en par with admitting, that you don't have a clue, what you should do with your money.

What do you mean by "Mech Warrior spiritual successor"? It has always been "BattleTech", Mech Warrior is just the name of the action shooter sub series.

Resident Evil Revelations 2 / Biohazard Revelations 2 review snippet How gory is Resident Evil Revelations 2 / Biohazard Revelations 2?
There is blood, there are a few intense depictions of violence, but bodies usually stay intact, if it's not some mutant, that ends up being a puddle of meat.
