Gravity Review

What better thing to do than to base an example of that supposedly rare beast, the original game, around the theories of Albert Einstein, one of history’s most original thinkers?

Gravity’s plot is laden with doom. you are what’s left of the human race, dedicated to setting up colonies and making money. This wouldn’t be so hard if it were not for the aliens. You need stars to warm your planets, and they’re going to turn the very same stars into big black holes.

Most of the time is spent zooming round in one of your space craft while the rest of the fleet wait to receive orders from you. Occasionally you encounter the odd alien ship, which, to start with, will be superior to yours. But as colonies grow technologically they provide you with both revenue and upgrades for your ship.

Most of the planets need life support systems. These are provided by programmed probes. If a rock is wholly inhospitable you can use – albeit at cost – the Genesis device (a la Star Trek) which can make anything inhabitable.

Even when a colony has been established there’s still the threat of aliens wiping oft the sun, so need to keep a constant eye on all your star systems. Though the aliens appear not to discriminate beetween systems, it always seems to be one of your that ends up in darkness.

Rather than the usual bland 2D starfield, Gravity uses vector lines. These mark out gravity fields, and by traciking on eyou can get from A to B without using engines. Gravity is at its densest around black holes, where the vectors literally drop out the bottom of the screens. It’s a very neat touch when you pop into a hole and reappear a trillion or more miles from the entry point (and it’s the only convenient from of interstellar travel). and neat is a word which sums up this game. It borrows the best from a host of other titles, it’s got a random element which does add variety, it’s both complex and it’s hard to define – yet it’s all of this that makes it such fun. Once more, imageworks have come up trumps with an interesting, quirky game. Gravity i a great new release – it has got to be a must for the thinking games player.

Verdict: 88/100

Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance System Requirements and Screenshots

Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance is an action hack and slash video game developed by Platinum Games and produced by Kojima Productions, for the PlayStation 3, Xbox 360 and Microsoft Windows. Although a Japanese release for the Xbox 360 platform was planned, that version was canceled. It is the ninth canonical entry in the Metal Gear series, set four years after the events of Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of the Patriots, where players control Raiden, a cyborg who confronts the private military company Desperado Enforcement.

The game focuses on fighting enemies using a sword and multiple subweapons to perform combos and counterattacks. Through the use of Blade Mode, Raiden can dismember cyborgs in slow motion and steal parts stored in their bodies. The series’ stealth elements are also optional to reduce combat. The game was originally announced in 2009 under the title of Metal Gear Solid: Rising, and was intended to act as an interquel between the events of Metal Gear Solid 2: Sons of Liberty and Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of the Patriots. This form of the game was to be produced solely by Kojima Productions. However, the team met with difficulties in developing a game based on swordplay, so executive producer Hideo Kojima canceled it.

A solution was found, in late 2011, with Platinum Games taking over development. Under the guidance of the new team, Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance was revealed, with a significant change in the play mechanics and storyline. Kojima Productions retained responsibility for the game’s overall plot and Raiden’s design.

Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance was well received by critics with the staff noting a growing popularity despite initial mixed reactions to Platinum Games’ involvement. The game was praised for its sophisticated cutting system, its use of Metal Gear elements to complement the story despite the game’s focus on action, and its intense boss fights. However, reviewers have criticized the game for its camera and story mode’s length.

Project Zomboid Review and System Requirements

Project Zomboid is an isometric survival “simulator” that puts you in control of a character that is destined to die in the process. This turns around the focus in the game and instead of trying to reach a specific “end” you are encouraged to “enjoy the ride”. You can cook, loot, shoot and must take care that your character get’s enough sleep, even bandage yourself if wounded. You may carry a melee and/or ranged weapon but the bigger the gun, the bigger the sound. Shooting attracts near-by zombies towards you and while it’s easy to kill couple of them, a horde overruns you easily. I must say that this game isn’t easy (as in casual easy) and requires some learning (as every good game does, mind you). Highly recommended for friends of roguelikes and zombies.

Verdict: 85/100
