    A weaker story redeemed by an amazing presentation and the best action seen in the series; a good sequel but not great.

    Assassin's Creed: Revelations

    A weaker story redeemed by an amazing presentation and the best action seen in the series; a good sequel but not great.

    'If it aint broke don't fix it,' is the first thing that comes to mind when playing Assassin's Creed: Revelations, as not only are its fundamentals and core gameplay almost identical to the previous games, the structure ... Read Full Review

    The year is 2027, and North Korea have occupied the United States, fuel and supplies are scarce, and the US military are scattered. You play the silent Jacobs, a fighting soldier for the Resistance. While the set-up is i... Read Full Review

    inFamous 2

    The fun combat and great story make not only a solid entry, but a remarkable and satisfying sequel with plenty to offer!

    Infamous 2 is a more enjoyable and exciting game than its predecessor. There is much more mission variety, with vast amounts of content. The gameplay is immensely satisfying, and as fun as ever, but is the comic book-lik... Read Full Review

    Gears of War 3

    Gears of War 3 doesn't reinvent anything, but focuses on polish, immersion and emotion, presenting an epic conclusion.

    'Gears of War 3' doesn't reinvent anything for the gaming industry or third-person-shooter genre, nor does it go for a completely new approach to the series. Instead, it improves on every aspect that made the previous ga... Read Full Review

    An original, ambitious, intelligent and very well polished overall package, one of the better games of Q1 2011.

    Portal 2, PS3, Xbox 360 and PC, released April 2011 by Valve, the same developer who brought us the Half-Life series, Team Fortress 2, Left 4 Dead, and many more. Portal 2 received generally positive opinions from game c... Read Full Review

    Promising opening, perfect gameplay pacing, authentic atmosphere and presentation, huge variety, but a lacking story.

    L.A. Noire

    Promising opening, perfect gameplay pacing, authentic atmosphere and presentation, huge variety, but a lacking story.

    L.A. Noire has a very familiar layout, it's an open world game with set missions and a large map to explore. There are 21 assigned cases across five desks, patrol, traffic, homicide, vice and arson, and 40 street crimes,... Read Full Review

    Possibly the year's greatest game, it's grand and adventurous with a side of emotion to top it all off.

    Red Dead Redemption

    Possibly the year's greatest game, it's grand and adventurous with a side of emotion to top it all off.

    A rich, enjoyable free roam action adventure, with a tense and very satisfactory story. As John Maston, a former outlaw, you are sent by the Government to hunt down and kill your former gang members. It is set during the... Read Full Review

    This sequel matches and surpases everything little experience and detail of it's predecessor. This needs to be played.

    Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2

    This sequel matches and surpases everything little experience and detail of it's predecessor. This needs to be played.

    Second Opinion: I have played more than 500 hours of MW2's online and a little more on the single player. The online is full of inconsistent weapons and mechanics and the story is packed with plot holes that I once overl... Read Full Review

    Tekken Tag Tournament (Platinum)

    Incredible gameplay and graphics mixed with great music and a fun multiplayer experience. This installment is a must.

    Tekken Tag Tournament isn't exactly a sequel; it's more of a spin-off. It was Namco's first Tekken game for the Playstation 2, and a great reboot for the series. There isn't much a story to it, all that needs to be kn... Read Full Review

    The gameplay, story and music are all simple but fun at its best.

    Crash Bandicoot on the original Playstation wasn't exactly what you'd call "well received by critics." It didn't deliver a whole lot of redefinition, but it certainly delivered a whole lot of fun. Many people were hurt b... Read Full Review

    It's as if Capcom thought of two great and amazing ideas and decided to mush it together. Did it work?
