Review: X-Men: Destiny

No matter if you read comic books, watch movies based on them or play as them in video games, the idea of becoming a mutant or superhero is something every fan has envisioned from time to time. This makes the idea of playing a game where you work to become a member of one of the greatest comic book teams in history so appealing. However, no matter how good that idea can be, it has to be executed properly.

Modding isn’t something new to gamers. If you’ve travel to or join in on a LAN Party or even a computer show, you’ve seen these artistic pieces of machinery. However, for console gamers this artistic approach to gaming is something new. Every so often you might see a custom made console from a game producer or from a single ambitious individual but these units are either one off units or hardly available due to high demand, limited supplies or again something made for a single individual’s use.

Red Orchestra 2 Review

One of the main purposes of any game is give you a simulation of a real life situation. For first person shooters this idea of a true to life simulations have been case to side as sci-fi shooters took hold only see a return to real life environments filled with extra human like characters and situations. Now don’t get me wrong I enjoy games like Call of Duty, Battlefield and even games like Wolfenstien but these playable characters are slightly extra-human. In the newly released Red Orchestra 2, this no health replenishment over time, no extra vision of a HUD filled with more information that most platoons would receive during the duration of an entire campaign. But does this return to a bare bones real life experience work today or is it too hardcore today’s hardcore gamer?
