Excerpt: It’s a good thing Pinball FX 2 is so good, because I have a few complaints about its recent arrival to the PC. Imagine that. Someone complaining about the PC port of a fantastic console game. The things that bother me about Zen Pinball FX2, newly available for the PC and conveniently integrated into my Steam friends list, bother me because I’m such a dyed-in-the-wool Zen pinball fan. You might not notice some of these things. You might not care about some of them.
Excerpt: Here’s the thing about Pinball FX 2 . It is a pinball game, in case you haven’t gathered that from the title, and it strives to be nothing more. This is not a bad thing. To pursue an idea in video gaming and to wholly deliver on that promise is admirable, but I tell you this so you don’t go into Pinball FX2 expecting anything more. In fact, the game’s determination to be nothing more than a pinball game is one of it’s strengths.
Excerpt: Epic Games has had a long history with the Unreal franchise. Starting back in the day with the single-player game, Unreal pushed boundaries for shooters with creative weaponry and interesting enemies. The success of the first Unreal game lead to the creation of one of the strongest FPS franchises known today.
Excerpt: ok unreal tournament 3 is a FPS froom EPIC GAMES the creator of the popular xbox 360/PC game Gears of war. I havent played any of the UT games before as i had lack of internret when they were out(2 busy playin rugby and drinking)
Conclusion: Despite my praise, Zombie BBQ isn’t perfect. There is a distinct lack of checkpoints where you can save your game. This adds to the difficulty, often to the point of causing frustration. In addition to this, the frame-rate frequently drops when there are large numbers of zombies on the screen. These complaints aside, Zombie BBQ is a fantastic portable game. Little Red Riding Hood’s Zombie BBQ may be a rather simplistic shooter, but the game offers plenty of depth.
Excerpt: The DarkWalker, Warfare and the Stinger. That's why you should buy Unreal Tournament 3, Epic's fourth game in its premier PC twitch FPS series. Apart from that, it's very similar to UT 2004. This is no bad thing. It's certainly the best Unreal Tournament game in years, but those expecting a complete revamp will be sorely disappointed. The philosophy, clearly, is on getting back to UT's roots, like a kind of fusion between the original UT and UT 2004.
Conclusion: UT3 is visually stunning and the action is non-stop. It's hard to find much to seriously complain about once you drop in and start annihilating opponents in the huge number of high-quality maps with awesome vehicles and a variety of decent play modes. Epic doesn't reinvent the wheel here, but it does give players a fresh update on a classic old-school design that will keep you fragging long into the night.
Conclusion: Pinball FX2 is just good fun if you fancy a quick game of pinball. The ball physics are great, the visuals are top notch and, barring some dodgy voice acting here and there, the audio adds to the experience too. Having friends play along with you increases the enjoyment as you work to beat each other’s scores, but solo play can be just as rewarding.
Excerpt: The King of Fragfests Returns… sort of… Unreal Tournament 2004 was undoubtedly, one of the greatest multiplayer FPS’s ever. That might explain why its sequel, Unreal Tournament III, is basically the same game. What it doesn’t explain is why I just paid fifty dollars for it.
