Grand Theft Auto V
Simply put, Grand Theft Auto V is an English creation that says a lot about America. While GTA 4 was the classic story about immigrants in New York City, GTA 5 takes place on the other side of Los Angeles, the city teeming with fascinating surfaces and its industry of image and light!
In GTA 5 there are three heroes you can manage and their stories overlap. One of the things corrected is that now the whole map is available immediately for players to explore, while in the previous parts you had to open it piece by piece as you pass the missions!
The player is gradually and elegantly brought into action which improves the overall impression. The missions are varied, mechanisms are more robust and even irrelevant details, such as the practice of yoga, are adequately integrated into the story. But in spite of all the effort spent on GTA 5 story, the best enjoyment is to get away from the story. The textures and sounds of the world around California are incredibly precise and create an ideal place for racing, flying and destroying everything in sight.
The core of GTA is rivalry between reason and savagery. Radio in the game conveys a realistic picture of the media, from reporting news to excellent choice of music. GTA has written its own rules and defined the entire genre of games, which is additionally confirmed with the title.
Assassin’s Creed IV BLACK FLAG
Assassin’s Creed IV Black Flag puts you in the role of a notorious pirate, the fear of the Caribbean – Edward Kenway. In addition to being an inveterate pirate and captain of the ship, he also has an interesting hobby – exterminating the Templars. Edward Kenway was originally a British Corsaire, an officer of trust who plundered ships, not for himself , but for the crown and shared the loot with his superiors. How is that he became an assassin is yet to be seen, but it should be noted that he was actually the father of Haytham Kenway (from the AC III ), Conor’s grandfather. Rebellious by nature, he will disobey The UK and join thousands of pirates who ravaged the Caribbean Sea. The game happens in the golden era of pirates and you will meet some historical figures such as Edward Teach known as “Blackbeard”.
The game play is divided into the present and the fight against the Templar heirs- Abstergo Corporation, and the past in which you take the role of captain of the above. Officially the sixth game in the series, Black Flag brings us an open world with 50 unique locations in which you operate and explore. The main centers of the game are the cities of Havana, Kingston and Nassau but locations are generally large and diverse as The Caribbean are divided into the British and the Spanish territory, and there is also a good part of that controlled by pirates (such as the port of Tortuga from Pirates of the Caribbean). Research and progress through the game is divided into land and sea, they’re divided in a ratio of about 60% to 40%. As you explore the new site, you will run into a nice built shopping centers, the colonial fortifications, remote villages, caves and endless tropical jungles. Robbery is one of the main sources of money but, because you are a sailor, the prey are also captured ships, so you can recruit a crew for your second boat and gradually strengthen your influence and strength. Recruitment is done in a similar way as seen in the AC Brotherhood but you will not be able to send your cadets on assignments around the world and not even to call them to come to aid in land battles because it would, according to Ubisoft, make the game much easier and eliminate any challenge in it. Your recruits will exclusively serve on your ship, The Jackdaw (and others that you capture), which can be upgraded with new cannons, better sails, better wood for the deck and so on.
Gameplay concerning Edward himself is quite improved. Since the game is placed in 1715, muzzle loaders and other gunpowder weapons are still present but especially good news is the return of hidden hand blades as those of Ezio and Altaïr. Unlike them, Edward will have ( in addition to swords and two hidden blades) up to 4 guns which can shoot 4 opponents in a few seconds which is very nice compensation for the impossibility of recruiting young assassins who could help you in battle. Also, underwater sites such as wrecks of sunken ships are loaded with gold and rare weapon that is mor fatal than those randomly acquired in a forge. Multiplayer mode returns more detailed and better , but with one fierce miss. The naval battles are no more in multiplayer.
AC IV Black Flag allows very precise third party shooting from firearm (seen in AC III), but this time you can do it while you run i.e. chase your target. If you are not a fan of this kind of games, you should get one, if nothing else, then for the great pirate theme.
Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare
The premise of the game is that the global terrorist network attacked and destroyed a multitude of nuclear reactors. In the sea of chaos, national army is incapable to respond to a new kind of threat. In such situation, various private armies or private military corporations jump in , they fill the security vacuum and meet their needs and goals. Of course, the main protagonist is you in the role of certain generic private- Jack Mitchell, gifted above average and technologically improved. Jack lost his arm in a battle, and now works for the Atlas Corporation, i.e for its Executive Director- Jonathan Irons, played by Kevin Spacey. He was dissatisfied with the ineffectiveness of the United States and its inability to protect peace and democracy in the world, and therefore begins to use resources of their corporation to make the world a better place. The whole theme delves deeper into the issue of the dissolution of national states and their effectiveness, especially from the military aspect, in the modern era of domination of mega-corporations.
Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare was developed in Sledgehammer’s engine instead of the IW engine that was used for the previous Call of Duty.
Shooting has not suffered any revolutionary changes, such as improving the recoil or ballistic performance, and considering that we have a laser and energy weapons, there was no point making a particular change to the current physical model. New weapons introduced : jump-packs and similar gadgets that can reload themselves , different types of shells (you can choose which effect they will have) , exoskeletons that can perform different stunts and perform movements that ordinary soldier simply can not, and so forth. However, the biggest change comes out of need to use exoskeletons, or “exosuits” , in a right way. Those who played Crysis, well remember the way the local exoskeleton dramatically changed the experience of playing, depending on whether you used it in stealth mode, stronger armor, greater mobility and similar. Same applies here.
The maps are made and designed simply to invoke the use of advanced features. Zombies? There are zombies, but with a Season Pass. If you can not meet them (and you’ll have to buy them, if you want them), the game already has a built in cooperative mode based on the waves of enemy attacks (swarm waves)- the so called Exo Survival, but we suspect that it will not reach the popularity of zombies.
FIFA 15 is the most complete football game so far and it offers many gaming modes that will keep you in front of the screen for months and months. You can be a player, a goalie, a manager, there is Offine and online multiplayer support for Ultimate Team, extra ground on which you can train … Not to mention that there are judges (full name), possibility of determining the layout of the net and tensions “attached” to the goal and so much more.
Emotional intelligence – for the first time in the series, the players possess memory and show emotions depending on the context of the game. With more than 600 new emotional reactions, players react to key moments such as the bad slides, missed opportunities to score, bad teammates’ reactions, an extraordinary goals scored and similar.
Dynamic presentation – to be realistic as possible the atmosphere is enhanced with improved commenting during the game, with unique reactions of fans in the stands, whose cheering varies from state to state.
Tactics – the opponent teams, depending on the results, apply different tactics during the match. For example, they can arrange all players within their own half of court and wait for the opportunity to counter-attack, or spend time on various meaningless passes.
Agility and control – the players on the field now possess more realistic agility of movement and ball control while adding, dribbling or shooting.
