4.0 out of 5 stars If you must play with motion controls then the PS3 is the best..., March 26, 2013
I'm glad this year's Tiger game is moving away from the golfer himself, and not because of his image. Last year's Tiger Legacy mode faltered, so in its place Tiger 14 offers the Legends of the Majors mode that lets you play through the history of the sport itself instead of just Tiger's career. It's an effective approach, especially when coupled with a few small changes that tighten the overall experience.

I'm not a golf history buff, but Legends of the Majors mode is a fun way to earn coins that incorporates your Career mode golfer by having them face off against the sport's greats at certain intervals. The mode also uses era-specific equipment, which isn't as interesting.

This year the all-important coins, which are used to buy stat-boosting pins, are more useful since you can spend them to level up your golfer. Levels grant you attribute points and equipment for a lot less than it takes to buy a pin pack.

The expansion of the online options gives you more ways to earn coins. The Country Clubs format lets you take in more players, who can contribute to the club's status in more ways (including a variety of tourneys and leaderboards). The clubs also feature expanded voice chat, and a new Club Loyalty Bonus that gives you coins for members playing every day.

The action on the course remains largely the same from last year, except for the new swing arcs. Like changing your club tuning, fiddling with your swing arc has its advantages. This lets you change the flight characteristics of your ball, including your power, control, and how the wind affects your shot.

Even though Tiger 14 has a similar setup as Tiger 13, I had more fun with the newer game because its constituent parts mesh better. For a golfer, getting everything in synch is important.

The Edge
Like last year, if you absolutely have to have motion controls, I suggest you go with the Move. Putting in particular is harder with the Move, but it's also more accurate in general over Xbox 360's Kinect. The Kinect motion controls are dumbed down to the point where the game does a lot of the work for you. For instance, a half swing on the Kinect will often be read as a full-powered shot. This defeats the purpose of using motion controls for a more lifelike feel.

3.0 out of 5 stars So close to something special....., March 26, 2013
First let me say this; The game clearly doesn't deserve 50$, I took all my time to finish it, it took me 6 hours. Graphics are really bad but that was not a big deal, the gameplay was catchy and the voiceover was amazing, from the two series actors. I was quiet optimist through the whole game, but then the game just ended, probably the worst ending ever in the video games industry.

Horror factor is somewhat scary. Daryl is really a plus in this game, and it does gives back the atmosphere of the show though.

The graphics were basically really high end 2005 graphics. It feels like and plays about as well as the new Duke Nukem did. I think that there were about 5 various zombies in the whole game. If you played the game Land of the Dead imagine a much worse Next-gen version of that.

My two cents : The Kings of Cash-In have done it again. I seriously believe that this is what Activision has been reduced to: making bad games to cash in on licenses. It's not the worst game ever and should carry a $15 price tag. No more than that. If you must play a Walking Dead game, get the one made by Telltale Games! Utterly Amazing! Now that is a game that is worth much, MUCH more than it's selling price!

I was expecting a game like a TWD in First Person, but i need to admit I was expecting more than a repetitive merry go around of facts and mechanics and a butt-ending that blows me off... taking out the fact of (poor) interacting with other survivors, scavenge of new items for continue adventure with new cars, weapons and more, the game include lack of graphics and Gameplay, that makes the game boring and repetitive... The history isn't that bad, but isn't good though, resuming: only a REAL fan (like me!) will TOLERATE a ONE time gameplay (you finish the game, and you put on your game stash and never touch him again...) Other positive point is the GREAT voice os Norman Reedus and Michael Rooker, they were good in the series, they were good in the game too... Well, if you aren't a REAL BIG FAN of TWD, i think you should prefer to play Left 4 Dead or other titles. If you must have it; WAIT! The price will plummet. Trust me!

-Even with the games shortfalls it could have been something special. If the gameplay was altered just a bit it would have been so much better. Example: If you could simple stab a zombie and kill it without the odd play mechanics this game would have been much more satisfying.

Final Thoughts :

Yes, this game is a mess, and it was rushed out so it could be bought by YOU, and to take advantage of a great fanbase, the Walking Dead fanbase. So is this game worth it? (short answer: NO). The graphics are awful... 2006 standarts, acctualy some of the zombie models look like the models from resident evil 1 REMAKE for the GAMECUBE. The sound is BLHAW... Too basic, the sound effects are sometimes enjoyable. The gameplay, brings something new to the table, you have a fairly deccent item manager, you can gather supplies which is pretty cool, and you can get survivor for your group. So yeah, Is this worth 50$? Nope! Stay away from this game, only get it if its all patched.

I will update my review like I normally do when needed.

5.0 out of 5 stars An Amazing Progression to the Series..., March 26, 2013
To sum it up, this game is amazing. Absolutely amazing. It's fascinating. It's truly gruesome. It's fun. It's unique.
The series itself is mysterious and this game is no different my friends.

This game is a masterpiece. You have to love a game that is built not to please everyone, or to appeal to the biggest demographic of the lowest common denominator. Bioware Infinite is about a development team trying to realise their creative vision. This is a very fun shooter, but by no means is it the kind of shooter that is going to inspire thousands of hours of shooting. So in some sense it is not a stella shooter, and it isn't trying to be one.

This game is not competing with Call of Duty. Nor is it a role playing game. The roles are all set. It's fairly short, its mostly linear, and its rather simply a game that focuses on Story. In many ways it is thus a pretty short, linear and LIMITED game. It's more or less a single session story-game. But WHAT a story! It's great! Bioshock Infinite creates a small world but it builds it with huge passion and care. It has so many philosophical angles and social issues oozing out of every pore, it will definitely give gamers things to think about.

The graphics are so mesmerizing, I almost forget to move on with the game play. The setting, the story, the way Elizabeth interacts with you--I am stunned and in awe--This game was fun without being frustrating in combat and challenges-- PERFECTION--PURE PERFECTION.

The mechanics are the same with some refinements but nothing mind blowing..and that's ok. The wheel didn't need to be reinvented.

Pros: -Beautiful artistic graphics and memorable soundtrack. -As atmospheric as the original Bioshock. -One of the darkest stories I have ever seden in a videogame. -Mind-boggling ending -Elizabeth is the best AI partner in gaming history. -Skylines feel like rollercoasters in the sky, don't get queazy! -Combining vigors in combat is pure ecstasy. Cons: -Handyman fights can get tedious. -Some glitches where you can get stuck in terrain etc. (fairly rare) -Elizabeth can be a little annoying sometimes with her over eagerness in and out of combat. -The game ends....14 hours for my first playthrough.

Ultimately this is an absolutely outstanding game; a new benchmark for game developers to strive for... have no hesitation if you are considering wether or not to buy this game... this is pure art expressed masterfully. It's short though but it is sweet. Every once in a while a game comes out that blows your socks off. This game goes above in beyond in all areas. Superior story telling, combat, atmosphere, music. You feel immersed in the world and unable to quit playing. The details in the areas show the care given by the development team. This game was not rushed and will serve as proof to what games can accomplish. This game accomplishes what Half-Life did for its time period. I think Ken Levine said it best when referred to games as a better medium than movies and books because you pilot them. You get to participate and experience them. This is nothing short of a masterpiece and should be purchased by everyone.

Normally I would never give a game 10/10, but Bioshock Infinite ticks all the boxes. Just like the first game did. Infinite has exciting gameplay, with various ways to approach encounters. You have Elizabeth there to help. She gives you ammo, salt and health when you need it. She can also open rips in the world to give you the edge in combat. The graphics are amazing, mixed with excellent use of lighting and sound. the world is truly amazing. I love the way that it is specifically a different experience to the previous games. There you are stuck in Rapture, a claustrophobic, dark and broken city. Here we have a huge open beaming world, with light. It's still terribly evil though All that aside this game is absolutely amazing and If a game is better than this in the next 2 years I will be very surprised. GOTY for sure.

I will update along the way if anything changes like I do in my other reviews.

5.0 out of 5 stars AAA Title - Lara Croft Returns, March 9, 2013
First lets start off with the basics. Pros and Cons.

: Pros : Combat, Longer than I was Expecting, Plenty to do, Gripping, Level Design is excellent.

: Cons : A little predictable. There are some pretty cliche characters, multiplayer won't hold you for long, not very challenging

.....

In this adventure 21 year old Lara is stranded on the island of Yamatai following a freak storm. She's cold, scared and struggling. Certainly not the Lara that we once knew. Speaking of which, this Lara is completely different; redesigned to be more normal and relatable (her bobs are now 'normal sized'). Hunger is a pressing consideration that must be addressed and when she kills, she is distraught. She also trembles as she climbs up steep cliffs. All of this comes together to form our new hero. She is more human and less of a killing barbie doll from the previous games.

The revamped Lara is a winner and the beginning hours of game play will leave you with a lasting impression (a very good one).

Tomb Raider is a hybrid third-person shooter and a linear platformer.
Linear does not mean bad. Tomb Raider`s structure is fantastic. The reason the genre can constantly be mistaken is due to the superb progressive nature of the game. While the hunting disappears as soon as it begins, it sets the scene and the level design always gives the impression that the world is bigger than it actually is.

Leveling System : None of the abilities available are required to complete the game. All of the abilities can be easily be unlocked in one play-through and range from close combat moves to earning more XP for certain actions. While some may argue that the close combat dodge/instant kill move makes the game easier, the XP reward for using this move is also significantly lower than most other kills. This balancing act of power against XP rewards keeps the combat active, giving you incentive to do your best and not rely on some of your more powerful skills. Lara can upgrade her weapons and skillsets by resting at campfires, and she can even fast travel between them, similar to the bonfires we saw in Dark Souls.

Controls : Extremely responsive. Thank goodness! With some of the previous Tomb Raider titles this was a huge problem but not with this one.

There are downsides to the single-player game though. For a start the challenge level is incredibly low. With the removal of tricky jumping and puzzles, the only threat comes from combat and which as previously explained is fun, but hardly ever difficult.

The Story : The supporting cast is made up of stereotypes whose fate is so predictable that it's hard to care. Lara is a bit more developed, but her progression into baddass survivor takes longer than the gameplay. It's hard to believe she is still getting used to the idea of being all alone as she buries a climbing hammer into the side of a man's skull. The story does so much to make us sympathize with Lara and her struggle, that it's actually uncomfortable to watch the vulnerable young Lara brutally murdered every time you make a mistake. There's even an out of place "Survival Instinct" mode that turns the world to black and white, and lets Lara locate interactive objects in her surroundings similar to Batman: Arkham City.

Voice and Music : Very good. The woman doing Lara's voice did a fantastic job. Everyone else is so-so. On rare occasion there are audio issues...missing sound effects sort of thing. No a big issue but it was noticed. Music supports the game well enough.

Multiplayer: Mediocre at best. I would have liked the developer to have focused on the Single-player and leave the Multiplayer. Abandoned matches are also an issue - roughly half of the games I played ended in victory by default.

Graphics: The PC version is a good port, for the most part. Fairly comprehensive graphics and control options are available out of the gate, and manual hacks can enable more. It ran perfectly at the highest settings on an Intel i7 system with 16GB of RAM and SLI 580GTX. It's stunning!
Certainly the PC graphics are the next generation as you can imagine. The consoles still look good but nothing like the PC. If you have the option; Grab the PC version and enjoy. This probably goes without saying, but the graphics in Tomb Raider are absolutely stunning, and they're easily some of the best I've ever seen in a video game. Crystal Dynamics wanted a cinematic experience, and boy have they achieved one.

My Review : I love it! It's a AAA title and if this is just a taste of what's to come from the series; I'm excited. There is a lot to like in this game and it's definitely worth your hard earned money.

Story - 8/10
Graphics - 10/10
Gameplay - 9/10
Music - 19/10
Multiplayer - 5/10
Replayability - 8/10

: ** UPDATE ** :
...........................

Tomb Raider on PC got another patch this weekend, launched in conjunction with new beta drivers from Nvidia for GeForce GPUs. Download the latest GeForce 314.21 drivers direct from Nvidia.

Since its launch, GeForce Tomb Raider players have seen "major performance and stability issues" trying to play the game at max settings. Complaints include problems with TressFX and tessellation tripping the game up, at least for those with 600-series cards.

There are more Tomb Raider patches incoming from Crystal Dynamics, based on ongoing player feedback.

Build 1.0.718.4, which is now available on Steam, also includes fixes for crashes at startup and when selecting Options from the game's menu. Various graphics glitches are also reported to have been fixed, alongside a bug that meant some users couldn't use the exclusive fullscreen mode.

Among other fixes, there have been a few improvements to TressFX hair-rendering options, and a gameplay fix for players unable to progress with regard to the boat in the beach area.

The patch will automatically apply itself the next time users load Steam.

Various Tomb Raider players on PC have been reporting problems with attempting to play the game on the highest settings with an Nvidia card. Nvidia has now said it is working on a driver update to improve performance with the game.

"Unfortunately, Nvidia didn't receive final game code until this past weekend which substantially decreased stability, image quality and performance over a build we were previously provided," said Nvidia's Andrew Burnes last week.

4.0 out of 5 stars Crysis has some Substance....., February 26, 2013
This review is from: Crysis 3 - PC (Video Game)
Crysis 3 is a beautiful game. Let's get that out of the way first.
There's no denying it looks stunning and you'll often stop to look around at the environment you're in. You'll likely want to play certain checkpoints over and over again to take everything in. With that said, Crysis 3 plays just as well as the others.

The A.I. isn't any smarter and make for easy targets. With the new Predator Bow that allows you to kill without going out of Stealth, you'll often feel overpowered and maybe even cheap. If you're only interested in the Single Player experience, you're in for a short ride. The Campaign isn't very long following in many other FPS footsteps offering a fun ride but one that ends too soon. Crysis Vets will likely play the Campaign a few times to find all the hidden goodies and Nanosuit upgrades but for casual players that will play this once, you'll be paying for the beauty, not the substance.

Graphics don't make the game, they just enhance it. The game is better than good but it's not great. The AI is stupid (better than Aliens Colonial Marines though), you can simply be in stealth mode the entire game and wreak havok on any enemy you come across. I'm sorry, but the first crysis is still both the most fun and the best game overall out of the series. This one has the "best" multiplayer yet in the crysis universe, but compared to other multiplayer FPS's cmon now, it just simply doesn't compete to something like BF3. It boils down to this, this is a remarkable looking game and truly jaw dropping even on modest settings, but that gameplay is trite and mediocre, which is a shame.

The campaign also has a better pacing, with 6 to 8 hours gameplay. Crysis 2 was indeed a bit longer, but had some very boring parts. Some gameplay features are a bit useless, like that hacking which is very poor. The vehicles sections are painful, the handling of the buggy is hard.

Crysis series continued with prophet and Psycho.Most wonderful art design for levels and great lighting effect,very good textures,awesome dx11 effects and solid gameplay.

The story is the perfect finish to a fantastic trilogy. If you liked both the Crysis games for what they were, you'll love this third addition. The multiplayer is great fun if you're a fan of the Crysis mechanics and various cloaking maneuvers, and I'd definitely give it a shot if you're a CoD fan as well, as it's much like a crossover between it and Halo. So, without hesitation (even if it is on Origin), give this game a few hours of your time. You won't be disappointed.

The Campaign isn't very long following in many other FPS footsteps offering a fun ride but one that ends too soon. Crysis Vets will likely play the Campaign a few times to find all the hidden goodies and Nanosuit upgrades but for casual players that will play this once, you'll be paying for the beauty, not the substance.

Graphics don't make the game, they just enhance it. The game is better than good but it's not great. The AI is stupid (better than Aliens Colonial Marines though), you can simply be in stealth mode the entire game and wreak havok on any enemy you come across. I'm sorry, but the first crysis is still both the most fun and the best game overall out of the series. This one has the "best" multiplayer yet in the crysis universe, but compared to other multiplayer FPS's cmon now, it just simply doesn't compete to something like BF3. It boils down to this, this is a remarkable looking game and truly jaw dropping even on modest settings, but that gameplay is trite and mediocre, which is a shame.

The campaign also has a better pacing, with 6 to 8 hours gameplay. Crysis 2 was indeed a bit longer, but had some very boring parts. Some gameplay features are a bit useless, like that hacking which is very poor. The vehicles sections are painful, the handling of the buggy is hard.

Crysis series continued with prophet and Psycho.Most wonderful art design for levels and great lighting effect,very good textures,awesome dx11 effects and solid gameplay.

The story is the perfect finish to a fantastic trilogy. If you liked both the Crysis games for what they were, you'll love this third addition. The multiplayer is great fun if you're a fan of the Crysis mechanics and various cloaking maneuvers, and I'd definitely give it a shot if you're a CoD fan as well, as it's much like a crossover between it and Halo. So, without hesitation (even if it is on Origin), give this game a few hours of your time. You won't be disappointed.
