    On the dusty surface its a great game, underneath that its ruined by major physics problems.

    SCORE International Baja 1000

    Rated on March 21, 2014 by BIGMercenary

    On the dusty surface its a great game, underneath that its ruined by major physics problems.

    Baja 1000 has the unfortunate luck of having bad physics, which is a shame since the rest of the game feels good to play. There's a great sense of speed, an abundance of tracks, and a plethora of cars...

    The ultimate bloodsport has brought a knife to a gunfight.

    Unreal Championship 2: The Liandri Conflict

    Rated on March 10, 2014 by BIGMercenary

    The ultimate bloodsport has brought a knife to a gunfight.

    Unreal Championship 2 was once cited by one of the creators as "pushing polygons like crazy." This holds true as UC2 is probably one of the best-looking original Xbox games you could ever find. Epic G...

    For mobile devices, Real Racing 3 is as good as it gets, but it just could have been better.

    Real Racing 3

    Rated on March 08, 2014 by BIGMercenary

    For mobile devices, Real Racing 3 is as good as it gets, but it just could have been better.

    Uniquity is a hard thing to pin on a game such as... wait I've said that before...But for the sake of arguing the same holds true for Real Racing 3. Most hardcore gamers have shunned mobile gaming as ...

    While Homefront is intense its never feels fun, but the short ride is so very worth going on.

    Homefront

    Rated on December 25, 2013 by BIGMercenary

    While Homefront is intense its never feels fun, but the short ride is so very worth going on.

    (Anything regarding multiplayer has been omitted besides a passing thought of it. Since THQ's closure, the servers have been shut down and I was never able to play it.)Why Homefront was ignored is bey...

    A narrow-minded blockbuster that's held together with duct tape.

    Black

    Rated on December 25, 2013 by BIGMercenary

    A narrow-minded blockbuster that's held together with duct tape.

    Upon its release, Black was labeled as "gun porn," a kind of game with so many guns that it should have been classified as such. It was touted as having cinematic quality gameplay, destructible enviro...

    It feels good to be in command for a change.

    Star Wars: Republic Commando

    Rated on December 12, 2013 by BIGMercenary

    It feels good to be in command for a change.

    To be one of the better-praised FPS games of the time, it wasn't very widely spoken of among the people I knew. Its very easy to pick up and play but one major drawback is the length: there are only t...

    Angry Video Game Nerd Adventures

    Feel the Nerd's pain as you progress through one punishingly difficult game that's very rewarding.

    AVGN Adventures wants to punish you for your hubris. All those years of playing your modern games and thinking "I'm invincible! Nothing can touch me! Bosses tremble at my might!" will be reduced down ...

    Overall, Fireteam Bravo 3 should see our SEAL team retiring with an honorable discharge.

    SOCOM: U.S. Navy SEALs Fireteam Bravo 3

    Rated on June 12, 2013 by BIGMercenary

    Overall, Fireteam Bravo 3 should see our SEAL team retiring with an honorable discharge.

    Fireteam Bravo 3 was developed by Slant 6 Games, the ones responsible for the previous SOCOM Tactical Strike on the PSP, leaving Zipper Interactive to make mediocre games such as the Online Only SOCOM...

    The game is broken due to the Unreal Engine. You're better off playing the first two Pro Skaters on any old console.

    Tony Hawk's Pro Skater HD

    Rated on June 12, 2013 by BIGMercenary

    The game is broken due to the Unreal Engine. You're better off playing the first two Pro Skaters on any old console.

    I can't write this review coming from a passive angle. The Pro Skater series of games are among my favorites and Pro Skater 2 is not only my all-time favorite but its the one I cut my teeth on when it...

    It feels like it wasn't trying to be the best and only succeeds as "something to do."

    Racing Evolution

    Rated on June 12, 2013 by BIGMercenary

    It feels like it wasn't trying to be the best and only succeeds as "something to do."

    APEX is hard to pin down as far as a racing title goes. The physics are sim-like and grounded in reality while speed is more of an arcade commodity, never fearing to cause the car to brake quickly or ...

    What could have been a decent GT sim-racing game instead makes a sharp turn into the near-unplayable.

    Evolution GT

    Rated on May 15, 2011 by BIGMercenary

    What could have been a decent GT sim-racing game instead makes a sharp turn into the near-unplayable.

    Its a game with a quirk that quickly becomes unwelcome, Corvette Evolution GT has little to do with Corvettes and more to do with frustrating the player with its own set of rules. The main feature of...

    Grind Session' simple manual trick just can't compare to the Hawkman's 900.

    Grind Session

    Rated on May 09, 2011 by BIGMercenary

    Grind Session' simple manual trick just can't compare to the Hawkman's 900.

    When a game refuses to follow the button presses of the player and instead decides what's best for it, it makes for a really terrible game. Playing a game should be fun, not tedious. Its hard NOT to c...

    Divinity II: The Dragon Knight Saga

    Rated on May 09, 2011 by BIGMercenary

    A budget action-RPG that does everything by the book and does it well.

    Divinity II is an action-RPG set in a world that shares many ideas from medieval and fantasy stories that you would come to expect from a mass-produced fantasy novel found in a bookstore: dragons, kni...

    Halo: Reach

    Rated on October 30, 2010 by BIGMercenary

    Halo: Reach is a last great Hurrah! from Bungie, and delivers the same action that all fans have come to know and love.

    Love it or hate it, Halo Reach is the last hurrah into the Halo series by Bungie. If the series were to go into a hiatus right now it would be good for it. It has gotten quite stale, especially in Rea...

    Tony Hawk's Pro Skater 2

    Rated on October 26, 2010 by BIGMercenary

    A pocket-sized Pro Skater that's perfect for any fan of the console games.

    If you've played any of the console versions of Pro Skater 2, you should have high expectations already. It takes everything fans love about the previous games and cranks the volume up to 11. And the ...

    Enthusia Professional Racing

    Rated on October 26, 2010 by BIGMercenary

    An ambitious title that strives to show off what it does, unfortunately ambition doesn't cut it.

    Enthusia Professional Racing, made in-house by Konami, attempts to blend arcade and simulation racing. It does this rather well by keeping the arcade aspect in the menus while the racing is fully simu...

    Any fan of the series will love this game despite it's flaws. All other will need some convincing.

    Announced a few years ago and released October 1, 2009, "Gran Turismo 4 Mobile" finally sees a release on the PSP this year simply titled "Gran Turismo." (But for clarity's sake, I'll call it GT PSP.)...

    A simple quick cash-in title with not enough inside to believe you're actually playing a game.

    Jumper: Griffin's Story

    Rated on October 26, 2010 by BIGMercenary

    A simple quick cash-in title with not enough inside to believe you're actually playing a game.

    Button-mashing games are few and far between. Some, like God of War (don't hate, you know it's true), are well done and offer some depth to go along with mindlessly killing things. Others, such as Jum...
