Gamer Value Review – Enemy Front

Enemy Front takes us back to World War II with a serious tone. You play a journalist who is right up on the front lines with various Resistance fighters all over Europe. He joins up with each of these groups and writes down their heroic deeds, so that the world will one day know of the people who fought for freedom. That sounds like it could be the start to a pretty cool game… but that’s not at all what Enemy Front ends up being. Continue Reading

Geek Citadel Reviews – Watch Dogs

I make it my business to try to play as many Open-World games as possible. I’m an absolute fanatic for titles like Grand Theft Auto, and I do my best to get my grubby little hands on them all. I was definitely prepared for Watch Dogs on its initial release, but a couple of warning bells began to ring when it was suddenly delayed right after the release of GTA V. Continue Reading

Geek Citadel Reviews – Tesla Effect: A Tex Murphy Adventure

I admit it; I love everything about adventure games. I’m especially a sucker for the ones featuring detective elements of any kind. Yet in this odd and twisted world, I have never played a single Tex Murphy title. That’s right, not even Mean Streets or Martian Memorandum. So I figured it was time to break my fast of Tex games by stepping into the world of Tesla Effect. Tex Murphy returns after the events of Overseer, and things have changed in the world of the not-so-famous detective. Continue Reading

Geek Citadel Reviews – Daylight

Horror games are a big thing in the video game world. From Silent Hill to Amnesia, they’ve come in and offered us screams in both third and first-person. Daylight comes forth from the darkness and hopes to offer us some scares, but does it succeed in providing a different experience than any other title? Not at all, as a matter of fact… it’s practically a clone of the Slender Man games. You wake up inside of a dark hospital and have to search for letters. Continue Reading

Geek Citadel Reviews – Conception II: Children of the Seven Stars

Before I begin this review, let’s address the elephant in the room. Yes, this is a dating-sim aimed at men. That means you will see quite a few scantily clad women characters, and the main goal is to try to coerce them into liking/loving the main character. So if you have any problems with women being objectified, or playing a game designed around chasing young anime girls… you’re going to have a bad time with Conception II. Continue Reading

Geek Citadel Reviews – Dark Souls 2

Difficult games are coveted by the most hardcore gamer’s, and this may be due to many games grabbing your hand like a loving child and never letting go. The Dark Souls series is not one of those games. Dark Souls takes pride in letting you know little to nothing, and punishing you for your ignorance at every step. It is all about challenge in this world where two swings from a sword can send you to your doom. The wrong misstep can send you spiraling off a cliff, or into the hands of a hungry beast who will take you out in seconds.

Geek Citadel Reviews – Titanfall

Many years have passed since Jason West and Vince Zampella left Infinity Ward and started their own gaming company in Respawn Entertainment. We asked for a while “What type of game are they going to develop?” and that answer came in the form of Titanfall. A First Person Shooter with mechs and parkour elements that focuses entirely on multiplayer…yes, entirely…on multiplayer. A concept that a little game called Brink tried (Just without the mechs) and failed to execute, but did the former Call of Duty devs do the same here? Continue Reading
