    Now with 68% more helicopters.

    Forza Motorsport 5 (Day One Edition)

    Now with 68% more helicopters.

    Fans of the series rejoice because Forza4 is still a great game to play, tons of tracks and a myriad of cars to tinker, tune and paint, so what did the fans and supporters get for their allegiance? Lets find out.The game... Read Full Review

    Gears of "What the hell where they thinking?"

    Gears of War: Judgment

    Gears of "What the hell where they thinking?"

    Gears of War fans rejoice, because the previous 3 games from Epic studio are still a blast to play, unlike this cynical cash cow that has no place being a full price game. The campaign is short, disjointed and lackin... Read Full Review

    Black Ops propaganda machine.

    Call of Duty: Black Ops II

    Black Ops propaganda machine.

    No I did not buy this on release, the very thought never entered my mind after the disappointment of BO1 and pretty much every other COD game in the series. The gameplay is the same, sure it has more bells and whistles b... Read Full Review

    Goes downhill fast...

    Far Cry 3

    Goes downhill fast...

    What starts out as a fantastic romp around a tropical desert island soon takes a downward dive with stupid AI, respawning enemies, quick time events and time limits. A warning first that this hateful review contains mino... Read Full Review

    Max Payne is max pain.

    Max Payne 3

    Max Payne is max pain.

    It's a good thing that Max Payne is a drunken alcoholic idiot because that's exactly what he feels like to control. Take all the grace of Nico Belick and smack him around the head a few times and you will have the genera... Read Full Review

    Generic 3rd person rubbish.

    Tom Clancy's Ghost Recon: Future Soldier

    Generic 3rd person rubbish.

    Ghost Recon fans have been waiting forever for this next installment in the franchise and many of us ignored Gamespot's mediocre review score to rush out and buy the game on release day, should have bought beer instead. ... Read Full Review

    Cabella's with 2 legged deer.

    Sniper: Ghost Warrior

    Cabella's with 2 legged deer.

    Sad to say but it was the box art that first caught my eye with SGW, a ghillie clad demon ready to deal out death at a thousand yards. It was in the bargain bin at the local game shop for $20 and I thought "what the hell... Read Full Review

    Average score for an average game.

    Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3

    Average score for an average game.

    The first modern warfare was a breath of fresh air when released, the second was a bit more of the same with a few nice tweaks and the third? Rinse and repeat. It's hard to put a finger on what makes this third title dul... Read Full Review

    Homefront

    Home is where the pain is.

    2011 bought us a swag of AAA titles, skyrim and BF3 to name just a couple, I never picked up homefront at release but when a friend decided to rid himself of some older games I grabbed Homefront for $20, I wish I still h... Read Full Review

    A perfect 7 all the way.

    Battlefield 3 (Limited Edition)

    A perfect 7 all the way.

    Big choices are afoot this year with MW3 and BF3 going head to head in a competition for the FPS market. Truth be told I have grown tired of MW's lack of change, the same engine and AI make every game play out like the l... Read Full Review

    Cheating AI ruins game.

    Forza Motorsport 4

    Cheating AI ruins game.

    The game looks nice, it sounds nice too, why then the paltry score? Let me explain. After your first race your prompted to pick a car, not a fast one mind you, but a run of the mill average family hatch. Win the first f... Read Full Review

    Deus Ex: Human Revolution

    What are they thinking?

    The story is incoherent at best, they bombard you with so much information that it's lost in translation 30 seconds into the game, a disappointing start. Your tasked with taking down a warehouse full of bad guys, here ha... Read Full Review

    Codemasters are masters of cash.

    DiRT 3

    Codemasters are masters of cash.

    The game is good, as a stand alone title it deserves at least an 8 or 9 but I have given it a 1 and for a very good reason. Codemasters have chosen to punish those who cannot afford to buy their games brand new, to play... Read Full Review

    Trenched

    Just one more go.

    My eyes are red, my head feels funny and my body is suffering from lack of sleep. Trenched is one of those games who's simplicity sucks you in but the incredible depth and diversity keeps you there. The customization of ... Read Full Review

    Operation Flashpoint: Red River

    Red river runs dry.

    Personally I thought Gamespot were a little generous in their review. What have they done to the series? They have taken a hardcore military shooter and dumbed it down to a level where it no longer deserves to have the "... Read Full Review

    MX vs. ATV Reflex

    Reflex's all the way to the bargain bin.

    Sometimes you have to wonder if the developers of dirt bike games have ever ridden one! The raw surge of power as the back end skips out hurtling you through the trees on your way to the next backwoods trail. Sadly this ... Read Full Review

    Call of Duty: Black Ops

    Black Ops fails to impress.

    Are we the gaming public that hard up for games that a new title, however bad, is instantly praised by the gaming press? I sincerly hope it isn't, let me explain. My COD bubble has certainly burst, from the sewing mac... Read Full Review

    Sitting here in the shadow of the alien that adorns the top of my computer desk you could say I'm a bit of a fan of the AVP franchise and thats why I am totally dissapointed with this current release. This installment fo... Read Full Review

    Red Faction: Guerrilla

    GTA clone with none of the charm.

    Ever since a certain political figure told us to "get our ass to mars" there arent to many gamers that havn't envisaged a romp around the red planet, sure DOOM took us there but we didn't really get to see much and we we... Read Full Review

    Mass Effect 2

    Take one good RPG and dumb it down for the masses.

    Firstly I will say that I was a huge fan of the original with its innovative speach options, cool gunfights and powers galore but the sequal has left me feeling somewhat cold and unsatisfied. My first shock was to see th... Read Full Review

    Incoherent third person/action shooter fails to impress.

    Having never played the first installment of the Army of Two games it was with high expectations I kicked off my career in this 3rd person action, shooter from E.A. Having now played through the game on all difficulties ... Read Full Review

    Rogue Warrior

    Remember how your parents said that gaming was a waste of time, they were right!

    First person shooters with 3rd person cover systems arent exactly new to the video game market, Rainbow 6 and to a lessor extent James Bond have both produced quality titles that cover the market quite nicely. Running ar... Read Full Review
