This game is really not that good...

Would've been great as a kid but after playing a GTA game it's just a poor imitation. Sure it's got some humour but it's mainly humour for children, not just silly humour in general.

To think I gave my copy away for free. ...Because it was crap after COD 4 to be brutally honest.

The only thing it had that was interesting was the darker and gorier feel to the game. Jumping off a building whilst being the subject of an artillery barrages was truly grim. Legs were blown to bits.

Far removed from the colourful "kiddy" looking maps of the recent games.

It's a start but there's still work to be done. I went in the Wilson Atomatoys HQ and due to the amount of enemies the FPS was at a crawl (I would guess around 15 FPS). I really haven't seen a console game chug for such a sustained period since something like Goldeneye on the 64.

Good idea.

Dara O'Brian has a very good routine that highlights the absurdness of video games in that you can pay £40 for a game and never get to see half of it. Something you'd never get if you bought music, watched a film, read a book etc.

He explains it much better though. :)

Less than 3% marketshare is the reason. Even so the amount of money it's been making on iOS would almost certainly make it still worth their effort to port it over.

Samsung Galaxy S6 review

crooky369

3 years ago

And that's curious bearing in mind that the S6 is beaten on some of the GPU benchmarks below. The HTC One M9 boasts more impressive results in some areas, but in actual games, the S6 is perceptually the better, smoother performer. Perhaps it's the faster CPU set-up that helps, or maybe the 14nm processor's cooler running results in less thermal throttling.

Said it before and I'll say it again these benchmarks aren't a true representation of the gaming performance of these devices. Just compare the actual games rather than these meaningless and clearly misleading benchmark numbers.

In the past year it seems either my opinion or Eurogamers has changed because I'm constantly doubting the scores in this site ever since Wind Waker HD got a 10 the day after GTA 5 got a 9.

PES getting a 9 when FIFA gets a 7. I love PES games and prefer them in general to FIFA but FIFA on the PS4 felt better for me comfortably. Unity getting a 7 when it was broken in the state it was reviewed in.

And this getting the same as Super Smash is just bloody wrong.

Do some actual proper game comparisons in regards to framerate, texture quality etc between the two tablets as you would with any other games consoles.

I'm fed up with specs and benchmarking tools, such as 3D Mark being the "be all and end all" of comparison between tablet devices. Basically compare actual games, the ones we'll be playing.

The game sounds great but the wheel support on consoles really doesn't... And really to make the most of these sim racing games you need a decent wheel with force feedback.

Hopefully some of the other manufacturers, other than Thrustmaster that is will have some sort of unofficial support.

2014 FIFA World Cup Brazil review

crooky369

4 years ago

"More than anything, it all just feels a bit slow compared to its great-great-great-great-grandfather, as illogical as that sounds. Every time EA trumpets new animations and dribbling controls (this year they've called it World Class Control, for what it's worth) it tends to result in a noticeable drop-off in turning speeds, midfield congestion and ultimately less expansive games. Saying all this, if you're happy enough with FIFA 14 you probably already know what you're letting yourself in for."

Doesn't sound very "fun". I'm really not that fussed on the lack of content but if the core gameplay isn't enjoyable there's really no point in getting this.

A real shame because having the good WC 2010 game added to the hype of the World Cup as a gamer.
