Assassins Creed: Revelations game review ratings

IGN 8.5
JoyStiq  4/5 (stars)

GameFront 70/100
Wired 7/10

A handful of the usual suspects. 
If there is anything these mediocre ratings tells us it’s that this game be not so different from the rest of the Assassins Creed series, however this doesn’t mean it’s a bad game, the series is one of the best series’ of all time but game reviewers get bored, like children at the park with skinned knees and new acquired childhood bullies.

We’ll give a review once we get our hands on a copy, until then we’re entirely unbiased or judgemental on this specific instalment, there are your stats though, I suppose they had to give something less than Modern Warfare (Bastards).

Lets hope this game answers our questions and becomes a nice addition to the story. Look on the bright side, if the sceptics don’t like it and you do, you could get it cheaper after playing all the newer releases in 2011.

Zelda: Skyward Sword favoured over Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 by IGN

So, the up coming Zelda: Skyward Sword game is proving to charm even the most critical of gaming websites:
 IGN gave Modern Warfare 3 a 9/10, which makes us very happy that Zelda has beaten it.

The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim - Xbox 360 & PS3

Hello world, are you all reading this right now or are you too focused either playing Skyrim or MW3 or battlefield 3? If you are a die hard fan of all 3 then you have likely done a Kurt Cobain to put yourself out your misery. My point being that I feel ready to do a review of Skyrim and NONE OF YOU PEOPLE WILL BE READING!
So a quick summary of the game pretty much is that it’s the Fifth game in The Elder Scrolls RPG series, it has more dragons, trolls, warriors and more mythical creatures than J. R. R. Tolkien’s porn collection… and as usual you’re the chosen one.

So, where do I begin? I might as well start comparing to the forth game Oblivion in bullet points.
  • The character creation looks much nicer, unlike Oblivion where if you don’t spend 2 hours making your character he/she will look like the elephant man.
  • The story is a bit more explained, Oblivion feels like you’re totally clueless to as of what’s happening, “I am a king, YOU MUST HELP ME, ARGH I’M DEAD” (I’m likely offending Oblivion fans but I need to be honest and say that as my experience of it many years ago at the beginning.) 
  • The new game Engine ‘Creation’ is pretty neat, I mean I love the GameByro engine still but it’s a nice change.
  • Dead bodies don’t flop about as much (but ofcourse they still move like Taggart bodies.)
  • In personal opinion, it actually feels a bit more like Fallout.
  • The soundtrack is beautiful.
Now, I must get my childishness out the way and say this. Skyrim sounds like ‘The skies anus’. Done.

The game is one of these shiny, fancy games, like the guy with new trainers at school and the girls take a liking to him because they can smell money. Don’t get me wrong, it’s a great game and delivered what it promised, however what it promised was novelty and I don’t feel that players will be exploring the world as long as they anticipated (They won’t be 70 and they might just pass exams yet.)
So here is my recommendation: If you like fantasy games and mythical creatures and like long walks… BUY SKYRIM

If the only games in your game collection are Fifa, Call of Duty and or the one that came with the console… Don’t ever visit my blog again please, I can smell you.

Rayman Origins: All Consoles

I really mean that, this game is a work of art, beautiful and crazy, Sharon Stone in Basic Instinct.

The artwork works really well with the game, it takes the likes of the original Rayman, while combining it with the style of Rayman 2.

While the game is quite simple, it’s still really easy to muck up and die, like using the microwave when you’re a student, somehow you always manage to burn the macaroni.

You get to be 4 characters; Rayman, his pal Globox or one of two things called Teensies (From Rayman 2„ you remember, right?)

This game is irresistible if you used to love Rayman, this will make you love Ubisofts childish side again even if those bastardy Raving Rabids put you off with their ADHD.

Rayman Origins demo is now available on Xbox Live and PSN for free, so don’t be a tit, download it!

Thumbs Fight Wars: Moving away from filthy Tumblr

Thumbs Fight Wars is a growing gaming blog and community based in Scotland (UK)
Originally we started off on Tumblr, while our Tumblr site is still active, we're looking to expand like the little girl in Willy Wonka turning into a blueberry. We will be publishing game reviews on both sites, seeing which ones take off.

Tumblr seems to be a bad idea due to the amount of porn, pictures of cats and topless 12 year olds.

You can hear from us on all these popular sites:
