Iron Grip: Marauders

October 24, 2011 5 comments

Hey everyone its CrossCrash I’m back for another MM Gaming Guest Review.

This time I’m looking at Iron Grip: Marauders a steam-punk-esque turn based strategy game currently available free to play on steam.

Now I’m gonna put a disclaimer here: During the review you will hear me talk about Ogame a lot. That’s because aside from the 3D strategy element that’s exactly what the interfaces remind me of. I’m not saying the games are similar in a wider sense but in the browser they do feel quite alike. Well mechanically at least. Basically I was looking for a point of reference for browser games and it was that or Farmville…

Gears of War 3: Brothers to the End

October 20, 2011 Leave a comment

If you read much MMGaming at all you might have read my dairy of mine and Ali’s playthrough of Gears of War 3. If you haven’t but would like to you I will put the links to the various days at the bottom of this post. If you have read them then this actual review of Gears of War 3 contains a lot of the sentiments and thoughts that I mentioned in the diaries. I’ll try and avoid repeating myself too much, but it is going to happen. Consider yourself warned.

Of course I will also be talking about the other aspects of Gears of War 3 after I have talked about the campaign, so you might want to skip down to that!

Red Orchestra 2: Heroes of Stalingrad otherwise known as Heroes of Stomping my face…

October 18, 2011 2 comments

Well I finally got my act together and here is my long-awaited and long-outdated review of Red Orchestra 2: Heroes of Stalingrad. First off, just to goad Tim a little, I will say that I had perfectly good reasons for not being able to get this done sooner! Plus a diary of my slow adventures through it like I am doing with Gears of War 3 would have just been silly. Because every single mission is the same.

Blast! I meant to say something nice first! Otherwise it won’t make any sense… Okay, take a chill pill and let’s get started.

Achron: Full of Wibbly-Wobbly, Timey-Wimey Stuff

September 12, 2011 1 comment

Ok, let me get one thing clear off the bat. I am well aware that some people will skip straight to the bottom to get the “short version” and just read the rating but I am going to assume that if you have read this far, you are going to read the rest of the review! The other thing I want to say is that I liked Achron, but in what is fast becoming my fashion I will likely spend a large amount of time in this review poking holes in it. Don’t be discouraged though! For I have broken my spree of “games I didn’t really like” in Achron because I DID like it. Read more…

Rock of Ages Review

August 30, 2011 1 comment

When one of the opening scenes to a game is as follows: a 2D cartoon of gandalf on the bridge of Kazad-Dum shouting “you shall not pass” shortly before being crushed by a bolder with a contented looking face on it, well then you know that it will undoubtedly be one of the strangest games you will ever play. That is a fairly accurate description of what you experience when playing Rock of Ages and it does set the scene for stranger things to come. Read more…

Deus Ex: Human Revolution Review

August 29, 2011 1 comment

Deus Ex: Human Revolution. People have been waiting years for this game, pondering what riches it would hold, how good it would be and most importantly how “Deus Ex Like” it would be. I was not one of those people. Don’t get me wrong I have been following the game’s development for a while now but I haven’t played the previous games and I wasn’t too fussed on the idea behind them. Then I played Human Revolution.
