I am currently playing the latest Resident Evil game & i am enjoying it, although i personally don’t think it is as good as Resident Evil 4 but it does have a lot of positives in being able to play with friends online both co-op & versus modes plus there is a lot of new dlc content that has been made available to keep you playing for a long time, being able to now move & shoot freely at the same time adds an extra element to the game play that hasn’t been seen in any of the previous games in the series. All in all it is a good game & will be more than enough to fill the hunger for the awaited arrival of Resident Evil 6 later in the year….

Max Payne 3

This game is awesome, i have been a huge fan of the series since the very first game back in 2001. Players resume the role of Max Payne, the down & burnt out former NYPD cop whose life hadn’t changed much until certain circumstances led him to what he thought would be a new life in Sao Paulo Brazil… But everywhere he seems to go trouble always shortly follows. He ends up working as a personal bodyguard for a local billionaire businessman, but attempts from outside sources lead to his young wife being kidnapped & held to ransom. Max is then on a mission to try & rescue her while also trying to confront his own personal demons reminding him of his past life that he thought he’d left behind…

The game can be quite tough to get to grips with. The bullet time effects are back & look cooler than ever. Although like the previous games in the series you will get yourself into situations regularly were you just can’t go in all guns blazing, even when using bullet time as you will pay a heavy price, i’ve found myself a victim to this on a few occasions were i would have to replay a section after about 10 tries before i would eventually succeed just barely with very little health to proceed to the next section, You really have to be aware of the enemy movements & their positions to have any chance of taking advantage of the situation. But this is a good move as it really makes you think about how to use your surroundngs to your advantage without making yourself a target. But its hard not to like it as like the previous games the story that unfolds is amazing , you can really get into the feel for the game & understand the character of max as he expresses his own opinions on the various situations that he ends up in. The comic book sequences from the first two games (which i thought gave an excellent feel to the story of both games) have been replaced with more action orientated scenes that allow players to see the action as it unfolds, which is pretty awesome.

The new multiplayer modes add an extra level of play-ability that hadn’t been seen in the previous games in the series. There are plenty of game modes to keep players interested along with a ranking system to be able to level up & add different customization loadouts for weapons & attributes. The games can be quite hectic & you need to have your wits about you when playing or you will fail miserably.

All in all the game is awesome & will be interesting to see were the story of Max goes from here. It is in my opinion the best game so far to be released this year, a must for any fan of the Max Payne series…
