    An emotional roller coaster ride full of excitment and drama.

    Mass Effect 2

    Rated on May 18, 2012 by CaptainCrazy

    An emotional roller coaster ride full of excitment and drama.

    I never played all the way through ME1 so my review of this second game is from a new-comer perspective to the series. To get up to speed I watched some story summaries on You Tube that included vario...

    The only game my wife is remotely interested in so it's got to be something special.

    LittleBigPlanet 2

    Rated on April 04, 2011 by CaptainCrazy

    The only game my wife is remotely interested in so it's got to be something special.

    I was looking for a game that was easy to jump into and have some fun when people came over and to play the occasional time with my wife who generally shuns video games. LBP2 definitely filled that v...

    GT is finally back and once again strikes it's own unique and sometimes odd path in the racing sim genre.

    Gran Turismo 5

    Rated on November 29, 2010 by CaptainCrazy

    GT is finally back and once again strikes it's own unique and sometimes odd path in the racing sim genre.

    I won't spend much time talking about the countless delays and frustration Polyphony Digital put it's fans through as they waited upwards of 5 years for the next installment. But I do want to just ge...

    Starts off slow but the action keeps building up until you realize this is one visceral experience.

    Assassin's Creed

    Rated on July 13, 2010 by CaptainCrazy

    Starts off slow but the action keeps building up until you realize this is one visceral experience.

    I picked up this game because I wanted something a bit different than just a standard action/fighting game. I'd say the coolest part of this game is being able to pull off stunning acrobatic maneuvers...

    Explosive way to start off your PSP game collection.

    Ratchet & Clank: Size Matters

    Rated on March 06, 2009 by CaptainCrazy

    Explosive way to start off your PSP game collection.

    Ratchet and Clank is my first experience gaming on the PSP because it came with the Entertainment Pack when I bought my system. This game is really action packed; it's part shooter, part platformer wi...

    Grand Theft Auto IV

    Rated on June 26, 2008 by CaptainCrazy

    The GTA series comes around full circle in the most refined example of a crime simulator.

    GTA IV is amazing but of course you knew that already. You knew that before game even launched. It's very easy to get caught up in the hype machine with game franchises this big but one must remember ...

    Forza Motorsport 2

    Rated on June 11, 2007 by CaptainCrazy

    If you like fast cars, this game will make you fall in love with them!

    You can nit-pick all you want but when it's all said and done, Forza Motorsport 2 beats any other racing title out there hands down and yes that includes Gran Turismo. In this game you can truly feel ...

    As an avid fan of racing games and especially the GT series, it pains me to tell you that GT4 is dissapointing.

    Gran Turismo 4

    Rated on January 15, 2007 by CaptainCrazy

    As an avid fan of racing games and especially the GT series, it pains me to tell you that GT4 is dissapointing.

    I'm writing this review in 2007 so I've been playing many racing games that have come after GT4 so I guess that will make my review pretty hard on the game. Since GT3 I've played the Need for Speed Un...

    God of War (Greatest Hits)

    Rated on January 04, 2007 by CaptainCrazy

    There is no need to convince anyone to go out and buy this game. The gaming God's simply demand it!

    God of War is that rare kind of game that executes every aspect of what makes a terrific game perfectly well. The graphics, gameplay, sound, story and presentation are exceptional. There is no need to...

    Star Trek: Legacy

    Rated on December 14, 2006 by CaptainCrazy

    Just when you thought the Star Trek franchise misfortunes couldn't get any worse....

    This game is a travesty to all the loyal fans of the Trek franchise! How the development team could have dishonored this once proud franchise is beyond me. They betrayed the gamers who waited a long t...

    SimCity 4

    Rated on November 07, 2006 by CaptainCrazy

    No game gives you this much creative freedom but technical issues dampen some of the enjoyment.

    This game has been out for a long time now so I'll avoid explaining in detail all of the aspects of gameplay and instead give my general analysis of how the game has faired after all these years. U...

    Chromehounds

    Rated on August 13, 2006 by CaptainCrazy

    Chromehound's is a strange beast of a game, in some ways good, in others, bad.

    I bought this game knowing that it would take a lot of hardcore devotion in the online aspect to get any enjoyment out of it and that is definitely the case. I said it is a beast of game because altho...

    Possibly one of the last greatest single player RPG's of all time is finally upon us.

    The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion

    Rated on April 04, 2006 by CaptainCrazy

    Possibly one of the last greatest single player RPG's of all time is finally upon us.

    What could possibly be four years in the making? To many of you it might have seemed as if The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion took longer to build than the Great Wall of China but for the gaming world, I ...

    Fight Night Round 3

    Rated on March 26, 2006 by CaptainCrazy

    Now this is what I call next-gen graphics and this game's got the gameplay to back it up.

    We all know about EA how they milk their franchises, include features in one year and remove others, then switch it around the next time. Thankfully, Fight Night Round 3 doesn't suffer from re-hash sy...

    Project Gotham Racing 3

    Rated on February 22, 2006 by CaptainCrazy

    This is a stunning arcade racer but with lots of class.

    If you've got an Xbox 360 and want a racing game then look no further. There is no other racing game on the system that offers as much as PGR3 does. It is a remarkably polished game for a launch title...

    I don't know which horse has been beaten to death worse, the GTA rip-offs or the WWII first person shooters. This genre is already well overdone on the original Xbox and it takes a really stellar game...

    An intense way to usher in the next generation of gaming! DOA4 is sure to get those palms sweat'n and your heart race'n.

    This is my first and only game purchase for my Xbox 360 so far but I've only just got my hands on the system two and a half weeks ago. Since then I've been playing DOA4 every day trying to unlock all ...

    Yes it is better than Starcraft. It is the best modern RTS game for the PC available today!

    Games like Rome Total War do not come around too often. It is no easy task to combine so many gameplay styles together in one seamless package but the developers have done just that. This is a game of...

    Did not buy this until 2005 and although it is a better than average game, I think looking back that it was over-hyped.

    I picked up this game recently because I wanted to finally get in on one of the best selling PC games and knowing it's from Blizzard, I was confident it would be a quality game. At the time of it'...
