    The best kind of sequel: it builds on the first game and refines elements, namely the combat.

    BioShock 2

    Rated on November 13, 2011 by BigGhost_AJT

    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.

    Burnout Paradise

    Rated on August 14, 2011 by BigGhost_AJT

    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...

    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

    Rated on August 14, 2011 by BigGhost_AJT

    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.

    Fallout 3

    Rated on March 06, 2010 by BigGhost_AJT

    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...

    Epic.  One of the few games ever to make me seriously ponder the repercussions of my actions.

    Mass Effect

    Rated on January 18, 2009 by BigGhost_AJT

    Epic. One of the few games ever to make me seriously ponder the repercussions of my actions.

    The good: The story: It's a wonderful, mature and well thought out story. This is one of those games that puts the player firmly in the universe it creates. The player is drawn in and really feels...

    Tomb Raider: Legend

    Rated on January 18, 2009 by BigGhost_AJT

    An Under-Raided adventure <br /> <br /> <br /> <br />

    Tomb Raider: Legend is so close to greatness you can smell it. This should have been, and probably still is, Lara's definitive adventure but it's held back by some annoying shortcomings. It is not w...

    Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic

    Rated on August 18, 2008 by BigGhost_AJT

    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.

    BioShock

    Rated on July 26, 2008 by BigGhost_AJT

    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.

    Metroid Prime

    Rated on December 10, 2005 by BigGhost_AJT

    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)

    Rated on December 09, 2005 by BigGhost_AJT

    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-...
