This review is from: Dead Space 2 Xbox 360 Game
Pros: Not the usual for sequels, but I felt this game was actually better than the original!
It is an excellent game, with an very interesting plot (especially the further exploration of the Unitologists). The hallucinations and gameplay really show Isaac's mind continue to decay.
Cons: None I can think of currently.
Other Thoughts: This is an excellent game that makes a hefty contribution to the genre.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: Borderlands 2 Xbox 360 Game
Pros: I found this game to be not quite as good as the first Borderlands, but it definitely stands on its own.
The characters are interesting and amusing, and I appreciate the references back to the first game.
I took personal amusement with the main antagonist. Every time you thought he could not get any worse and be more of a terrible human being, he would take another step past that line. He would do that again, and again, and again. It was almost too much at times, but I liked how he was the bad guy, but just slowly kept getting worse.
Cons: Part of this may be sequel syndrome, but some of it felt like they were trying too hard.
The humor wasn't quite as original, and I found it to be far more crude and direct. I rather enjoyed the subtly of some of the humor of the first game. I did not find myself quietly chuckling nearly as much in this game.
Other Thoughts: Overall the game was just shy of the first. I am not sure if it was the change in the humor (more over-the-top and sometimes felt they were trying too hard instead of letting it be more natural), sequel syndrome, minor changes in game play, or a bit of all three.
That being said, if you liked the first one definitely pick this one up, just remember to keep an open mind.
This review is from: Deus Ex: Human Revolution Xbox 360 Game
Pros: I really loved this game. I have been a fan of the Deus Ex franchise for years and was excited to play this. I felt the graphics were good and enjoyed the takedown animations.
The back story and plot lines were interesting.
I personally enjoy the stealth-style games such as this and the earlier Splinter Cell games.
Cons: None I can think of.READ FULL REVIEW
