Combat Sniper - Combat Arms Review

   Combat Arms is a military-style online first-person shooter created by Doobic Studios, published and hosted by Nexon, and also available on Steam.
   As the game has been around for quite a long time, it features a large selection of features. There are at least 100 different weapons to choose from, most of which can we further modified with custom parts, and around 10 different game modes including the classics such as Capture the Flag and Elimination (Team Deathmatch). However, while it is definitely better than it was when it was starting out, it is still a terrible game.

Turret Fun - Bullet Run Review

   Bullet Run is a First-Person Shooter (FPS) created by Acony and published by Sony Online Entertainment, also available on Steam. The game revolves around a deadly future bloodsport of the same name, where clones kill each other for fame and glory. Just fame and glory, not prizes.

   To set itself apart from other shooters on the market, the game features eight skills (4 tiers, 2 in each tier, 1 from each tier usable at once), to give you an edge in battle, lots of available weapons and lots of available clothing customization options. Despite all this, the game sucks, but first let's discuss the couple things this game does right.

Elbow Inbound - Ghost Recon Online Review

   Ghost Recon Online is a tactical third-person shooter created by Ubisoft and currently in it's Open Beta Test. The game revolves around using cover and working with teammates to efficiently defeat the opposition in 2-round matches.

   The game currently offers just 2 game modes and only 4 maps, however the maps are extremely well designed and reasonably sized. Every player has access to 3 different classes, each with their own weapons, stats, and special abilities. Not to mention the graphics are superb for a free game, and the controls are smooth and feel natural. While I'm sure many people are already downloading the game at this point, and they should be, let's jump into what makes this game tick.

Quick Remorse - Brick Force Review

   Note: I'm not a builder. Since I always post screenshots I obtained myself, I'll be showing what I saw or helped build myself. These aren't good examples of the potential of the building system but these are (the videos linked are not mine, nor are any of the maps presented in this review).

   Brick Force is a hybrid sandbox/first-person shooter game created by Infernum and EXE Games. It combines the ability to build cool stuff with the ability to shoot people in the face. Bright and colorful, it's a pretty casual game and playable both as a standalone client or in a browser using the Unity game engine.

   The game has two base modes, "Build" and "Play". They're pretty self-explanatory, but in "Build" you can create maps and in "Play" you shoot people. In "Play", there are five game modes available for play (Team Deathmatch, Deathmatch, Capture the Flag, Defusion, and Build and Destroy), so this is actually both a fully fleshed out shooter and builder. Unlike the exterior, however, the game isn't all sunshine and roses.
