Mafia II Made Man review.

Made Man is one of the three DLC's for Mafia II.  It contains two brand new costumes and two brand new cars.

Content details: Okay so as I said it contains two new costumes. The first costume is a regular suit that will defenetley make you look a little like James Bond. It's a black jacket and black trousers with a white shirt and a butterfly. The other costume is not really as sophisticated as the first but it's defenetley cool to look at. It's basicly    sand-coloured jacket and trousers with a white shirt and purple sunglasses. It's a little more ''loose'' than the other suit.
With ''Made Man'' you also get (as I mentioned earlier) two cars. The first car is a really big, beautiful car with a very nice sound to it. It looks alot like an old red and blue Mercedes. It's a bit slow but defenetly fun to drive around in. It handles okay but isn't really as good as the outstanding handling of the other car contained in this DLC. So a pretty good car but defenetly not the best in the game.
Moving on to the next car in the DLC, wich is actually alot more modern than the other one. It's a beautiful sports car-ish, red speed-devil. It's defenetly the best thing about this DLC, because it's so fast and so easy to handle compared to the other car in this DLC. It's -as I already mentioned- really cool to look at and will defenetly not be parked in your garage for long in this game. And if you (wich is highly unlikely) still want more speed, you can always go and get it tuned at the bodushop in the game, and then it will go really, REALLY fast.

Conclusion: If you're looking for a good DLC for this game and you've got about ten extra dollars you want to spend then this DLC is defenetly something you want to look for.

Final verdict: 4/5

Feel free to comment about your opinion on the DLC and this review. See ya;)

Mafia II review

Mafia 2 is the long awaited sequal to Mafia, wich was developed eight years ago by a little Czhech game developer company called  Tiscali Games. Ever since have rumors been going on about a new Mafia game coming out. And here we are in 2010 finally being able to play Mafia II.


Story: The game takes place in the early 1940's right in the middle of World War II. Vito and his family originally came from Italy, but early in Vitos childhood they moved to America in hope for a better life. In the game you play as a young man called Vito Scaletta who gets arrested for robbing a store with hes best friend Joe Barbaro. Here he can choose between either going to jail or serve as a soldier in the war currently going on in Sicily. Vito desides to go to war instead of prison and ends up getting shot. He survives though and gets sent back to America. Hes father is now dead and hes mom and sister now lives alone in a little apartment. When Vito gets home he finds out that the dad had alot of debts to pay before he died that he didn't get to pay, so the  family ows a lot of money to different loaner sharks. When Vito finds out of this he asks his good friend Joe for help and Joe then gets Vito in touch with the Mafia. Of course this isn't just a game where you do everything you're told so of course there will be alot of twists in the story. I give the story a 5/5 because it's very easy to get into and will at times catch you of guard and surprise you.

Gameplay: Mafia II contains of the different types of game play. Third person cover shooting, driving and stealth. The shooting in this game is good. You basicly move from cover to cover shooting your enemies. The targeting system is fine but defentley not the thing they've been using most time on making since it feels a bit to easy to shoot a guy in the head with a gun while running around, dodging cars trying to hit you. So the shooting is a bit to easy I think.

In Mafia II you'll be driving alot, so ofcourse it's important to have a good driving system in the game. Well don't worry cause the driving in this game is fun, and realistic. When you hit the gas it doesn't just feel like you're driving regular car, no it feels like you're driving an old and really heavy car, therefore the driving in this game won't be too fast but fast eneugh to keep you satisfied. Unfortunately I just feel like there's to much driving in the game. Every time you get a mission you have to drive to it, and it's most likely to be really, REALLY far away from you, wich means that after getting halfdone with the game  you'll be bored with the driving and just want to quit.

 Now in Mafia II you'll also encounter a couple of moments where you have to be stealthy and sneak around without being spotted by the patrolling guards. Now unlike the driving I just can't seem to get eneugh of the stealth in this game, cause they've made it so awesome. Sneaking around the corridors and hiding behind objects is really frun in this game. The enemie AI is good so you won't feel that it's to easy and killing your enemies will only make you earn less money wich makes this part of the game so exciting since you have to sneak all the time.

But don't let the okay-ish shooting and the boring driving hold you back cause' the story in this games is more than eneugh to keep you motivated and that's why I'mj giving the gameplay a 4,5/5

Graphics: Now Mafia II is a next gen game, so ofcourse we expect good graphics in a game like this. Now if you're getting the game for PC or 360, you can look forward to some great graphics. You'll see stuff like realtic moving clothes and really highly detailed enviorments. But if you,on the other hand is getting the game for ps3, might be a little disapointed, since the graphics are a bit worse for ps3 than PC and 360. But you won't really be thinking about that when you're playing the game. This game uses (as many other games) the Nvidia PhysX engine. This engine makes it possible for the developers to make things (such as boxes, bottles and cover) be destroyed in a very realistic way. This ads  to the action as you can't just sit in the same spot all the time.
So based on the PC and 360 graphics with the PhysX and the very realistic clothes, the graphics gets a 4,5/5. But if we were talking ps3 grahpics it would be 3,5/5.

Conclusion: Mafia II is all in all a very good game. is it worth 60 dollars? Yes I would say it is, based on the great story you get in the game and the pretty good gameplay. The game is a little short, but there is lots of replayabilitie in this game. If you like good graphics, lots of driving, stealth and a great story, Mafia II is just the thing for you.

Story: 5/5
Gameplay: 4,5/5
Grapshics:4,5/5

Final: 4,7/5

If you're not to sure about getting Mafia II I recommend you go get the Demo right now. See ya;)

R.U.S.E. Demo Review.

If you're a fan of RTS games (real time stragety) you've probably already heard about R.U.S.E. and maybie even downloaded the demo to your PC, Ps3 or xbox 360.... But here's a review of the demo. R.U.S.E. is -as I already mentioned- an RTS game... but a different one. If you've been playing Starcraft 2, and games like that, R.U.S.E. might surprise you... why? Well because instead of the game just throwing you into a giant map with huge wars going on, R.U.S.E. actually takes place on an actual map.... I'm not kiding.... just a map.... made of paper.... this might sound weird and it certanly is, but after using about 10+ minuts on the demo you start realizing why they put this into the game.... IT LET'S YOU KEEP AN OVERVIEW OF THE BATTLE! With the game taking place on a paper map you can actually see everything about what's goin on around the battlefield... of course you can zoom in and then look at the game as a regular RTS game but zooming out really gives you an advantage over the enemies... Of course like alot of others RTS games, you have to take over bases and build your own.... then you traine soldiers, build tanks and send out spyes to spot any enemie that might be approaching your base..... So the goal is basicley to take over the map.....
When zoomed in the landscape looks AMAZING! the amount of details in this game makes you want to stay zoomed in and not really use the whole zoom out thing.... the story is.... well there is really no story in the demo.... all you know is that it takes place in the middle of World War II.. but don't let that discourage you from getting the demo.....
Gameplay is well pretty slow to be onest but that doens't matter in a game like this, you just wanna build some bases and kick some a**....
 it can be downloaded right from PlayStation Store, Steam and XboxLive....

Gameplay: 3/5
Graphics:5/5
Story: 2/5
Enemie AI: 3/5

Final Verdict: 3.9/5

If you are a fan of the RTS genre you should defenetley buy this game.... See ya;)

Vanquish Demo Review. (Ps3)

Time for my very first review. Today I'm gonna be reviewing the new Vanquish Demo that just got released on PlayStation Store and XboxLive.... Okay so Vanquish is a ''Third Person Cover Shooter'' (like Gears of War) and is of course set in the middle of a great war like the rest of the games in the same genre is.... In the Demo you won't really hear anything story related but I believe of what I've been reading that the story simpley is that Russia attacks America and America wants to fight back..... The little twist here is that it's set in the future and you're this supersoldier-robot thing... So you've got some awesome powers such as dashing REALLY fast around the battle field giving you the advantage of speed, you also get a pretty neat slow-motion power that alows you to almost freeze time and shoot your enemies in the head while you are dodging there deadly bullets....
Sounds cool right? Well a game like this wouldn't be cool without some cool graphics.... Well don't worry, cause' the graphics in this game are STUNNING.... Everything on the battlefield is so detailed, everything from the BIGGEST explosions (and there will be alot of explosions) to the smallest details on your awesome super suit is really awesome to look at.....
But what about the Gameplay? Well the gameplay has everything you could possibly ask for in a ''third person cover shooter''.... It's really fast..... And I mean REALLY fast.... In the demo you will see that you always have to be on the move, cause' your enemies are smart enough to sneak behind you without you seeing it and shoot you in the back....
The boss you will encounter in the demo is just as smart. You can try to hide behind cover but the most of the cover in this game is destructable, and the boss knows that.... it will try to shoot up the cover you are hiding behind and then send a really powerfull laser beam in your way.... So the enemy AI is really good.....

Gameplay: 4/5
Graphics:5/5
Story:3/5
Enemie AI:4/5

Final verdict:4,7/5 

You should defenetley go get the demo and see if this is anything for you:) See ya;)
