Silent Hill 2: Director's Cut
Updated about 6 days ago
Silent Hill 2 is a masterpiece of psychological horror story telling, and every aspect of the game is designed to service that. This includes the impressive visuals, unnerving sound, and most of all the terrifying settings. Where the game falls short however is the gameplay. The combat is clunky, unyielding, and annoying. The puzzles are often obtuse, nonsensical, and sometimes even stoop to pointless padding. This may perhaps be intentional but it nevertheless detracts from the experience.

The series debut for PS3, with improved graphics and physics simulation. Included are Licenses, Races, Rally, Endurance, and new to GT5 are Nascar and Karting. Unfortunately, cars are split into 2 categories. 275 cars have detailed graphics and interiors, while 850 cars are ported from GT4 with simple interiors, and look extremely dated next to newer cars. Other shortcomings include poorly designed used car dealership and driving assists, lack of break upgrades, and a pointless course randomizer

One of the first games to showcase PS2's stunning graphic capabilities. This highlighted the amazing care and artwork that breathed life into the unique post apocalyptic fantasy world. The story revolves around a group journeying the world with the ultimate goal of bringing about a period of calm in a world ravaged by turmoil. Battles are fought in a traditional turn based system but the ability to switch party members on the fly allow for a lot more variety. Con: Side quests can be a bit obtuse

CS is one of the best competitive FPS out there, and GO updates it with better graphics, new modes including Arms Race, matchmaking, and microtransactions. Matchmaking is its biggest selling point, as finding players with the same skill to play with is essential to a good multiplayer experience. However weapon skins that were free in previous games are now paid items, some of which (like a bright orange sniper rifle) break the mood of the game. GO would've been a perfect game if not for this.
