Try imagining mixing a cartoon Kentucky Derby with your mom's old Compaq that could only run crude card games. Now, make it TOTALLY worth the trouble.

Hitman (2016): Sapienza Review
While the initial starter pack for Hitman showed a lot of promise, it's in the Sapienza missions where you start to see the game's true potential unfold.

"Yank and Shank" is strangely more satisfying than a chainsaw bayonet to the face.

Windows 10 Review for Dummies

After all these years, and growing up with Windows 3.1, I have seen an entire evolution of computers and software. Touch screens and large resolutions were a pipe dream just 15 years ago. Now it's the norm. Going from a Packard Bell (yes, before HP) that couldn't run 3D Ultra Mini...

So, first time review.

Well, I've had Bioshock for a while, and I like it, I like it a lot.

Graphics
Not much to complain about, water textures are some of the best I have ever seen (yea, it's just water, but god damned its cool looking water), and the atmosphere is very creepy, great work on shadows and etc. Furthermore, great idea of a broken down utopia, the folks at 2K pulled it off with style. Very, dare I say it, Art Deco-ey . Also, I'm not sure if its just my brightness level on my T.V., but the game got so dark for me at some points that I couldn't tell where I was going.

Sound
Brilliant. Really, the mutterings of phsycopaths and the 60's music blend together in a twisted way. It's not that they use music to make a moment scary, they use the lack of it to horrify you.

Gameplay
Well, its fun, but not amazingly fun. The plasimd/weapon balancing works nicely, but I wish they could of taken plasmid customization into account, dunno how that might work, but it'd be cool as hell if it would. While most people I know complain about the lack of multiplayer, I dont think it would've been a good idea, let the people focus on the story, and its better than a half assed Splicers vs. Humans deathmatch knockoff with some plasmids in the mix. (Shadowrun). 

Story
I can't say much without giving it away, but its a great story with many twists, maybe a bit short, and a very unfullfilling Boss Battle. ( I think Cohen  was harder personally). 

My only complaints are that this didnt live up to the hype (not saying many games do), As the first taste of a Next-Gen experience, it was great, but as a geneticly enhanced free roaming off the walls horrorfest shooter, it failed.

But those Big Daddies are AWESOME
