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 – Castlevania: Lords Of Shadow 2

It’s been a few years since the events of Castlevania: Lords of Shadow, Gabriel is no longer the power vampire that he once was and here in Lords Of Shadow 2 there are people…including his own son Alucard who are seeking his destruction. To be honest, if I were in his shoes, I would just die without putting up a fight. I’m not Dracula however and I am controlling him as he goes about his duty of killing the evil spawns of satans army as you try to regain your strength to fight the big man. Continue Reading

Geek Citadel Mini-Reviews – Madden 25, FIFA 14, Call Of Duty: Ghosts and Aqua Pazza

Aqua Pazza
PlayStation 3


Aqua Pazza is best described as an Anime-Fighter with Marvel Vs. Capcom 3 like controls. This game is pretty easy to pick up but does involve a little skill to string together combos. This game also has a story mode, actually it has two story modes. While I didn’t care enough for it to check out the second story attached to each character, I think that BlazBlu’s story is a lot better. If you are looking for a fairly easy fighter to get into then get it, but I would advise against it.

Madden NFL 25
Xbox One

We reviewed Madden 25 on Xbox 360, now it’s out for Xbox One and here are our thoughts. Madden 25 on Xbox One is a different monster when it comes to gameplay, A.I defenders are smarter and so are you A.I. linemen. It brings a more realistic feel when you see players planting to make a cut unlike on Xbox 360. However there are some downsides to the Xbox One version, for one the graphics suffer a bit. By suffer I mean that you notice some scanlines and some of the lighting effects that have gone awry. They also took out the Game Face feature for your created player, coach and owner. While everything else stays the same. If you got rid of your Xbox 360 and that copy of Madden 25 and don’t mind seeing some graphical issues, pick it up.

Call Of Duty: Ghosts
Xbox One

COD Ghosts_ODIN Spacewalk Next Gen

When I loaded Call Of Duty: Ghosts for Xbox One I could immediately tell the difference. Sure, gameplay hasn’t changed from the Xbox 360 version but the graphics are a bit sharper and shinier. Multiplayer on Xbox One is still a very smooth and enjoyable experience. I noticed while I was using a wireless connection that I was able to connect to a match in a fairly good amount of time. Overall, I would say to pick this game up if you’re a fan of the Call Of Duty Franchise.

Xbox One


FIFA 14 for Xbox One looks and plays great. It a little change graphically from Xbox 360 which we reviewed earlier but the gameplay has changed with the introduction of the Ignite engine. I also enjoyed the new presentation that we saw a little of on Xbox 360 but there are less in game cut scenes which adds to the flow of the game and brings more realism. I also have to mention that unlike Madden 25, they kept the Game Face feature in the game and it looks great. No scanlines and it doesn’t look like your hair is afraid to touch your scalp. This game is an improvement and should be picked up if you like soccer games.

*Aqua Pazza, Call Of Duty: Ghosts and FIFA 14 were all sent to us by their respective publishers for our consideration. Madden 25 was bought at retail*
