Steam Holiday Sale 2011 Day 10(r/gaming)
Hey all. I’ve gone through and tabulated most of the comments on this thread, in order to summarize reddit’s opinions of today’s Daily Deals. Hopefully, this will be somewhat helpful. Let me know if there are any errors or mistakes I’ve made in this table.
| | | | | | |:———–:|:———–:|:————:|:————:|:————:|:————:| Game | Score | % Liked | – |Notes|Verdict | | | | Space Pirates & Zombies | 113 | 86.0% | (+135/-22) | A very open space-based game with emphasis on ship design/customization, exploration, and leveling up. | Must Buy Dungeon Defenders | 59 | 94.0% | (+63/-4) | Incredibly fun third person tower-defence action RPG with 4-player co-op and cross platform play. Playing with a group of friends is immensely enjoyable. | Must Buy Machinarium | 55 | 86.7% | (+65/-10) | Very fun and casual puzzle-based point-and-click game. Keep in mind that it is essentially a flash game in a wrapper, so clearing your Flash cache or running CCleaner will erase you save files. | Must Buy Assassin’s Creed 2 | 45 | 97.8% | (+46/-1) | Makes tons of improvement upon the first and adds a decent amount of variety in the gameplay and more interesting platforming segments. The combat is still a little stale. | Must Buy Dead Space | 45 | 82.6% | (+57/-12) | An enjoyable 3rd-person horror game that does a great job getting the dreadful atmosphere right. | Must Buy for horror fans Revenge of the Titans | 22 | 89.3% | (+25/-3) | An enjoyable tower-defenes type game with a decent art style and intelligent AI. | Probably worth it for Tower Defense Fans Dead space 2 | 22 | 78.9% | (+30/-8) | Although not quite as scary as the first, this game is incredibly action-packed and very intense at times. However, it doesn’t really add anything interesting beyond the original. | Possibly worth it Serious Sam 3 | 12 | 100% | (+12/-0) | An enjoyable FPS with upto 16-player co-op mode, albeit with somewhat repetitive gameplay. Cheaper at GetGamesGo, and can be activated on steam. | Possibly worth it Assassin’s Creed Brotherhood | 10 | 100% | (+10/-0) | 3rd installment in the AC series. Introduces a very fun and incredibly unique multiplayer mode where you are assigned another player/target to stealthily assassinate. Also adds a decent single-player campaign. | Possibly worth it Lara Croft GOL | 7 | 100% | (+7/-0) | A relatively fun third-person action/adventure game with an enjoyable 2-player co-op mode. Cheaper on Amazon | Possibly worth it Assassin’s Creed Revelations | 5 | 100% | (+5/-0) | Latest installment in the AC series. Still a bit expensive, but has an enjoyable single-player campaign similar to the previous games, with the addition of a 3rd-person tower-defense segment. | Possibly worth it Hearts of Iron | 4 | 100% | (+4/-0) | A very hard-core strategy game with a steep learning curve, that goes far beyond the complexity of most RTS games. | Possibly worth it for strategy fans Assassin’s Creed 1 | 0 | 50% | (+6/-6) | While the series itself is a great open-world action/platformer, the first title tends to get incredibly repetitive. Possibly worth playing just to understand the complete storyline. | Skippable Homefront | -31 | 17.0% | (+8/-39) | Has a very short single-player campaign with overly-dramatic dialogue and mediocre gameplay, and a very poorly made multiplayer that isn’t much fun. | Not worth it
