    Codies, you had 5 years to work on it! HOW COULD YOU SCREW IT UP! TLDR: The wings fall off mid-flight.

    GRID 2

    Rated on September 04, 2013 by BKGlover

    Codies, you had 5 years to work on it! HOW COULD YOU SCREW IT UP! TLDR: The wings fall off mid-flight.

    I haven't done one of these in a while, so bear with me as I get my bearings in order...GRID 1, to be known as Race Driver: GRID outside of the US, is a simu-cade racer that defied either designation ...

    Closer to what NFS should be, but a side-step to Hot Pursuit, and a step behind Burnout Paradise.

    Need for Speed: Most Wanted - A Criterion Game

    Rated on December 02, 2012 by BKGlover

    Closer to what NFS should be, but a side-step to Hot Pursuit, and a step behind Burnout Paradise.

    OK, for those who don't want to look at my past reviews and ratings: Burnout Paradise- 8.5; NFS The Run & Shift 2- 3.5; Hot Pursuit- 8.0 Now, for those who have had a brain hemorrage and believe...

    Good customization and AI, annoying visual-novel story, lots of unlockables and extras. A Koei game worth the money.

    Warship Gunner 2

    Rated on September 03, 2012 by BKGlover

    Good customization and AI, annoying visual-novel story, lots of unlockables and extras. A Koei game worth the money.

    A great game that breaks up the monotony of games in general. Naval warfare with weapons ranging from basics to absurdly large to absurdly imaginative, with strategy in the way of limited slots and hu...

    Yet another reason NFS needs to just go away.

    Need for Speed: Shift

    Rated on September 03, 2012 by BKGlover

    Yet another reason NFS needs to just go away.

    In a nutshell, Shift does for ProStreet what Undercover did for Most Wanted (and Carbon for that matter). controls are dodgy, grip is non existent, "assist" help you go sideways when you don't want to...

    Errr...well, it's at least a step from IL-2, but they may have done the splits.

    Birds of Steel

    Rated on June 02, 2012 by BKGlover

    Errr...well, it's at least a step from IL-2, but they may have done the splits.

    Birds of Steel is a sequel to the game IL-2 Sturmovich: Birds of Prey. That IL-2 is at least a spiritual successor to the legendary IL-2 games on PC up to IL-2 1946. I played Birds of Prey a few ye...

    Black Box, you had Hot Pursuit to build on. HOW DID YOU SCREW THIS UP!

    Oh dear lord, give me.... no, I've been ready for this for a while now. I gave this atrocity a chance about two months after it came out, and after playing Hot Pursuit to the point of capping one l...

    Gran Turismo 5

    Rated on April 17, 2012 by BKGlover

    I want to bow to it's majesty, but I just can't bring myself to do it.

    As a racing simulator, Gran Turismo 5 is in a class all its own. If you look past that, however, you see a lot of things that may have started out well enough but in the end fell flat. What? You wa...

    DiRT 3

    Rated on June 02, 2011 by BKGlover

    The only problem I have with Dirt 3 is a problem I have with the industry.

    Dirt 3 is another game in the Colin McRae/Dirt series, and the best one so far. It is an improvement in almost every way to Dirt 2, and it's the best $60 I've spent in a long time. What's so great abo...

    Here's my primary thought. "Halleluia! It's about time we got a good NFS." Good, not great, but it's a start.

    Need for Speed: Hot Pursuit

    Rated on March 15, 2011 by BKGlover

    Here's my primary thought. "Halleluia! It's about time we got a good NFS." Good, not great, but it's a start.

    First off, it is a good game. Few have a better all-around feel. That said, it does have issues, some are of the beast's nature, and some are of it's handlers. So with that in mind lets get going. ...

    The Colin McRae experience, expanded and broadened. Amazingly, though, it seems to be very focused and has real depth.

    Colin McRae: DiRT

    Rated on October 12, 2010 by BKGlover

    The Colin McRae experience, expanded and broadened. Amazingly, though, it seems to be very focused and has real depth.

    As one who admittedly played both Grid and Dirt 2 first, I was not expecting to fall for this game like I had the aforementioned titles. After all of five races though, I found that I had not moved si...

    A phrase comes to mind," Amitious but rubbish."

    Damn you Activision, no wonder everyone hates you. Tony Hawk fell, Guitar Hero fell, and here's a new game that won't fall because It's already at the bottom. What am I on about? Blur, that's what....

    Midnight club in L.A. Sould you be worried? No, not a lot anyway.

    Well, it's a Midnight Club game, which have been noted by some as harder than it is to quit smoking, Set in Los Angeles, home of the worlds largest traffic jam and most things people just don't care a...

    Among the best racing games in years.

    Race Driver: GRID. What is there to say that hasn't been said before. So lets start with the good bits. The collection of cars is great, with a wide range of uses. There are a fair number of tracks, m...

    Incedible game, a must play for any racing fan, especially those rally fans who knew who Colin McRae was.

    DiRT 2

    Rated on June 03, 2010 by BKGlover

    Incedible game, a must play for any racing fan, especially those rally fans who knew who Colin McRae was.

    Let me quickly get my complaints out of the way. Having your idiot camera-view look around for ten seconds uncontrollably after every single damn series gets severely annoying, there isn't a Focus, Sk...

    At first look, it seemed so familiar. After playing though, it's all too familiar in a different way.

    Split/Second

    Rated on May 19, 2010 by BKGlover

    At first look, it seemed so familiar. After playing though, it's all too familiar in a different way.

    Split/Second is setup to be presented like a TV show and, like most of the TV I watch, is very exciting and cinematicand any other cop-out words you can think of. Oh, alright. I'll do this properly...

    Considering that I almost wanted to destroy the original, this one is 10-times better. But it still falls short.

    For those who don't want to look at my Juiced review, and considering you would have to look at the game in order to I wouldn't blame you, I gave it a 2.5. It might have been better if it had been bro...

    Yes it's on the PSP and yes there's no career. but it is GT and it does what people have wanted for years, GT on the go.

    OK, ladies and gents, the only real way to distribute the truth of the game is to start listing of pros and cons, THEN adding in the details, so here goes. Pros of GT for PSP: 1. An incredible num...
