A New Team Memeber:

Sep 6’th 2011

Hello, I’m Ryan and i’m the newest addition to the D A Reviews team. My reviews will be featuring World of Warcraft, its expansions, major patches, and other content. Let’s start with a base review:
Name: World of Warcraft
Platform: PC/Mac
Genre: MMORPG
World of Warcraft.. The very game you think of when you hear the word MMO. It has a fan base of around 15 million players! The story is set in the land of Azeroth, the magic filled world of the popular RTS series Warcraft. You make your alter-ego character from a variety of colorful races and classes. Right of the bat you can start questing and exploring, making your own grand adventure. Each class is very diverse; Warriors who are experts at wielding many different weapons, to mages who cast powerful arcane magic to kill foes. Many dungeon-type instances are available in the game that take teamwork to triumph with groups from 5-40 players to take down. But player versus environment(PvE) isn’t the only aspect of this amazing game. Around the world and in battlegrounds and grand arenas you can take on other players in player versus player(PvP) combat to test your might! The interface is very player friendly, even making people who are new to games in general be able to play without much difficulty. All in all this game is most definitely worth a try! It is free to play up to level 20 at http://us.battle.net/wow/en/

Base Game: Half Life 2
Graphics: Decent 75%

Sounds: Not really good, some kinda sound old. 25%

Underhell – Prologue:

By: Micky P.

Name: I have no idea how that fits with the story yet exactly, maybe the next chapter would explain. For now, 75%

Base Game: Half Life 2 and SMOD
Graphics: Decent 75%

Sounds: Wow, just amazing, even if they stole sounds from other games and mods. 99%

Playability: Ai was decent and not overkill like SMOD: Tactical’s. Scopes and Ironsights were weird, but easy to get used to. 75%

Enterainment: Well…. Makes you feel like a SWAT member untill you reach the undergrounds, from there you suddenly turned into a special ops detective trying to stop terrorists, kinda suspenseful-ish. Oh yea, the house was scary heck. 80%

Replay Value: I seem to keep missing every little ghost appearance in the house level, would be worth finding them all. 99%

Overall Rating: 503

Notes: I don’t know why, but…. why the heck are the allies really dumb and get stuck on trying to enter a elevator? I mean come on, I know it’s SMOD and all, but you can at least have a scene trigger so that they walk into the elevator, it’s not that hard!
