The best kind of sequel: it builds on the first game and refines elements, namely the combat.
In Bioshock 2, the player assumes the role of a Big Daddy and is once again in Rapture: the underwater city and brain child of architect/liberal/atheist Andrew Ryan. A new voice has risen up this tim...
The Burnout spirit of maniacal aggression is dampened in Paradise City with its incessant crashes and critical flaws.
For years now Burnout has been the fix for racing fans who like their games high on speed and low on realism. As the first in the series on current-gen systems, Paradise should have been the one t...
Enslaved: Odyssey to the West
Technical issues aside, I will take Monkey and Trip with me. Enslaved is just that affecting. It resonates that deeply.
Enslaved Odyssey to the West is an action-adventure boasting one of the most touching stories this reviewer has ever experienced. It tells of two slaves, Trip and Monkey, on a co-dependent path to fr...
Bethesda's vision of destruction and hope is equal parts remarkable and disturbing. A landmark for player immersion.
The Good The World: It is massive. So much so that it almost becomes overwhelming when you stand up on a high ridge a peer out over the destruction knowing that there are untold secrets to be...

Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic
To this day it stands as one of my favorite RPGs of all times.
What can I say that hasn't already been said. This game is magnificent. Keep in mind that I am playing this game currently. This review is based on my experience of the game during the age in which...
This game shines. It's at times haunting, heartbreaking, fear-inducing, disturbing and well..profound.
The term "story" as relates to video games is a slippery concept to grasp. Just ask game developers. Many have attempted to make story a legitimate part of their experience with degrees of success ...
From beginning to end Metroid Prime just sparkles. This is one fabulous and thoroughly enthralling achievement.
Anyone who has ever played a Metroid game pretty much knew what to expect from Metroid Prime. At its core one would expect to take on the role of Samus as she explores a large interconnecting world a...
Ratchet & Clank (Platinum)
R&C blends platforming, shooting, and clever gadgetry in forming a deep and rewarding quest; a must for adventure fans.
Ratchet & Clank is not an original game. At its core, it's is a 3D platformer complete with the genre mainstays--the double jump and the emphasis on collecting myriad this or that across its worlds-...
