Ah, you all know Killzone 3. This game has it all and was one of the best PS3 games I’ve played since God of War 3. The graphics were amazing and enjoyable to watch during cut scenes. The story and multiplayer were pretty badass as well. It’s fun pulling off kills with a jetpack and kind of reminded me of Halo: Reach, but with a little more control over the jetpack. The guns were really amazing as well with many weapons to kill with.

Fatality lives in the newest Mortal Kombat. Badass moves and great finish moves with fun combat that keeps me coming back. The multiplayer is great fun or just sitting on the couch with your buddy right next to you and when you beat him he rages by throwing the controller.

18#

Halo Combat Evolved came back this year and the 3D campaign option blew my mind it was amazing.  Despite the fact the multiplayer is just a Reach DLC this game is nearly to the point of where it was 10 years in its ultimate badassness.

17#

This games fun multiplayer and interactive story made it such a fun party to hop on with at my buddys. I liked the friendly servers on the game as well. It may be a kid game but its still pretty badass.

16#

This RPG fit the star wars genre very with fun gameplay and many choices.  The story was one of the best Bioware has ever told. I hope in the future we see even better.

15#

Probaly was one of the most wanted games of 2011 I liked it a whole lot but honestly didnt know what this game was. But when I got it I just had to go back and play Origins thats how good this was. Great story,great gameplay it kept me coming back for a while.

14#

This Fallout type game is even better than Fallout! The multiplayer vehicle play kicks some serious ass. The co op multiplayer is pretty awesome as well.But the campaign is what takes center stage and reall I mean really is awesome pick this game up.

13#

The sequel to a truly awesome is even better than before. With tons of people playing on the multiplayer who needs to play offline challnge your friends or randoms thats what I do. The graphics are amazing and I just love this game.

12#

Once you start this games singleplayer your mind is blown away by the awesome graphics. With pretty core gameplay it makes you know why theres multiplayer which is very fun but the singleplayer is the main reason to buy this game.

11#

This game made me get my Wii out since I like Zelda. It wasnt as good as the Ocarina of time but defiantly up in the best games of all time. The graphics be cartoon like but it doesn’t take away from how awesome this game is.

10#

This space horror didnt scare me shitless like the first one did….but it made me fell like I had a fighting chance more so against these monsters. The multiplayer personally was good despite it could be way better but it just added to the awesomeness of this game.

9#

Steping into the shoes of Ezio again makes anybody with half a brain fell good. With even more badass moves from slicing to jumping back to aerial assaults this game makes you fell awesome. The multiplayer really made a giant step up this time around as it nearly fells complete and the servers are accutaly good.

8#

This crime thriller was yet agian a succes by Rockstar games. Despite it lacks multiplayer its singleplayer is among the best in Rockstar history up there with GTA 4 and Read Dead Redemption. The gameplay fells like a Rockstar game which makes it fell more similar and awesome like.

7#

Now this game will help me wait for Grand Theft Auto 5. This may just be the most unrealistic game of all time…..but who cares!!!! Its one of the funnest games ever made and the story is very good no matter what choices you make.

6#

This handheld 3D game is one of the best Mario games to date. It fells like some of the old Mario stuff which makes it the best game for Nintendos handheld yet. With fun gameplay using alot of Marios new gadgets id say youd have to play it quite often.

5#

Epics final Gears game is well EPIC. With The Unreal engine at its hand Gears played nicely and looked beatiful for a destroyed world and all. Campaign was amazing very good writing and the multiplayer and co op modes make this the ultimate Gears of War 3 package it could ever be.

4#

If you play this game in 3D you might die. Crysis was just amazing the graphics are by far the best of 2011 in HD or 3D. The story mode takes you on a unforgettable journey. The multiplayer is just amazing with all the differnt upgrades and weapons to choose from and well made maps.

3#

Valve did it again expect using the word of Portals which everyone knows and loves. This game will probaly set the future for Valve games using servers that are good for awesome co op and making one of the best single players of 2011 Portal 2 is just downright awesome.

2#

Batmans best performance yet well besides The Dark Knight of course. Batmans combos get some help from Catwoman in this awesome game that makes gamers want such a great game. The story was just…I cant use words to describe it…it was amazing defiantly worth picking up.

1#

For the game of the year it goes to Skyrim. Just about the best game I have ever played its in my top 5 of all time after I played it. RPG elements are at its core in this game as it has the best customization system ever in an RPG to date and it fells like this game just takes your breath away.

Tristans Twisted World: Battlefield 3 Review

Frostbite 2 engine that sums this game up this game a lot. I also asked a veteran in the military if this was a realstic experince, and he said not by a long shot.

Multiplayer: The variety of big maps and team tactical combat is unmatched in this modern day FPS. You have to help your team out in a lot of ways in this game, by reviving and storming in. picking up so many options it feels real the style and the stamina while running is perfectly ligate. Knifing is definitely the most realistic kill in the game as it isn’t some stupid swing across the view, you must go up and stab your enemy. It makes you feel like a solider at some points with the recoil and aiming and destructible environment.

Co-op: The work of the two players is vital if one player goes away it is very difficult as it depends on straight up working together.The story in takes place around the campaign in areas you may have or not seen but it takes place as an alternative as you stop them from nukeing Paris at the end of it. But you must rely on each in co-op or you will fail that means talk to each other and plan ahead.

Campaign: The major area of this game for me as the main character is Sargent Blackburn you are being court marshaled but first the military wants all the info they can get out of Blackburn,so he tells his story which spans over a year in this 5 hour campaign. You fight terriost, Russians,Police,and even your own at a part of it. Most of the game you are trying to figure out what is going on in the world it all depends on the race agiasnt  time to stop nukes from hitting major points which one nuke destroys Paris and you save New York city from the second one at the end maybe it will have a sequel cause of the ending and maybe the second nuke wasn’t a threat who knows Battlefield 4 will come one day. But at the same time it fells like the story is like the improved Black Ops story

 

Graphics: PC the graphics are  great one the best or close up there with Crysis 2 on the PC as it looks as real as my own hand at times.PS3 the graphics seem to only reach highness on HD TV on any other its missing something.Xbox 360 you need two disc and download the HD content but its doesn’t close to the PC version. The console graphics just look flat out muddy and rushed compared to what I played on the PC.

Final Verdict: Beautiful Graphics, some of the worst teamwork multiplayer I’ve ever seen, co-op where you have to work with your partner which can either be great or terrible, the campaign as a decent story its epic just a little too many cliffhangers and ugly looking graphics on consoles. I find this game to be one of the biggest disappointments of 2011. I award Battlefield 3 a 3.5 as it fell below the Call.

The Lost Episodes : Modern Warfare 3 VS Battlefield 3

Over here at RealGamerNewz, after the East Coast power outages we have gotten so busy with wrapping coal for all of you that we ended up stacking a great set of episodes that almost got lost to time. Thank god for flashlights, right? Here’s the first of our shows following the release of Modern Warfare 3 and Battlefield 3.

We laid this one down shortly after MW3 dropped and we had time to play both titles. In this episode RGN co-founder Hayabusaman joins Hitman, Payback-Ironman, and BoodyBandit as Tristan shows up to drop the topic. Yep, it’s another comparison article to add to the sea of them.

Tristan’s Twisted World: Call of Duty Modern Warfare 3 Review

Call of Duty 8: Modern Warfare 3 is the latest installment of the best selling FPS ever, but it’s on every system – is that why it sells so much? Is this game really even worth it?

Multiplayer: The supposed “most fun multiplayer out there” is back again with new classes, kill-streaks, guns, equipment, etc. Some of  the new ways to play in Call of Duty this time around sort of feel like playing Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare for the first time.

The maps have improved from Call of Duty 6: Modern Warfare 2 with some more featured locations. Some of the new weapons and such make this Call of Duty a lot more fair than other entries in the series. For example, the Commando perk has always been was way too overpowered for its inaccuracy and the stakeout could shoot someone over 50 yards which doesn’t make sense for a shotgun that size. MW3 has fixed all of those issues and made a more balanced multiplayer.

The servers are still terrible. It might just be all of the players but since Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare the series has suffered a never-ending plague of dropped games. Even years after a game has come hopefully they may update it or in a future title make it more dedicated. The kill-streaks are a lot more realistic this time around. There’s no random attack dogs or surprise nukes making me think MW3’s balance is far by none close to the best if not the best of the 8 games so far. Despite the fact the maps seem a little too close to the campaign , I tried to cope.

Special Ops Missions: The missions sort of felt like Battlefield 3 but that’s not a bad thing. Despite the fact that teamwork is not needed as much in these missions, it does add to the replay value of the game. They are fun missions in which you will usually end up doing objectives like defending areas and such. It is a worth it to play through it for me personally but hardcore multiplayer gamers might want to skip it altogether due to the lack of teamwork.

Special Ops Survival: The staple stone of the multiplayer for me in MW3 it feels like a first person Horde on Gears of War and definitely blows Black Ops Zombies away by a long shot. It requires some teamwork especially when you’re facing a russian juggernaut. For big co-op games or just endless waves of fun, COD Zombies fans this is something worth playing in MW3.

Graphics: The Call of Duty 8: Modern Warfare 3 graphics can be considered in the 2009-2010 standards of good graphics as they improved a lot since the E3 demo they showed when it looked like MW2 but if you haven’t played this game – think of Halo 3: ODST, that’s what this game looks like to me  visual quality-wise.

Call of Duty Elite: The new progression system in COD:Elite is full of lag so I couldn’t get perfect on this. I’ll be back to review the service when the first MW3 map pack comes out, sorry folks.

Campaign: The best part of this game for me in an epic single player story mode. It pretty much takes place right after MW2 and shows what has happened in all Modern Warfare games. It starts out like MW2 but it’s World War 3 so it looks like the reveal trailers – it’s a good intro.

Captain Price and Soap play major roles in the story again but during most of the game you play as Yuri an ex-spetsnaz soldier who helps Soap and Price. You also play as Frost, an army marine who serves in Delta along with Grinch, Sandman, and Truck in Delta.

You play as other characters as well but personally I didn’t think they mattered as much to the story. You fight mainly in America, England, France, and Germany of course as shown in trailers. This is where MW3’s World War 3 mainly takes place. In this about 6 hour campaign which I’m glad they extended the time a little bit. it still makes for a great experience. The story mode is for anyone who enjoys epic moments, intense fighting scenes, and just plain old Call of Duty.

Final Verdict: This game is not for everyone. Mainly big FPS gamers, Call of Duty lovers, and multiplayer gamers want to pick this up. If you like a little lag, mindless shooting, and over-the-top story modes give it a whirl, since that’s what most Call of Duty games revolve around. Tristan’s Twisted World awards Call of Duty Modern Warfare 3 a 5.5 out of 10 since I’ve bought the same outdated game style so many times I’m finally sick of it folks.

Overall Score: 4.5 out of 10

This game was purchased by Tristan’s Twisted World for independent review purposes.
