    Halo 3: ODST

    This is a rollercoaster of value, depending on what part of the crowd you are in.

    Halo 3: ODST

    This is a rollercoaster of value, depending on what part of the crowd you are in.

    Halo 3: ODST is a very strange thing to review. It is two games for the price of...well, two, I suppose. ODST itself was going to be $30 and Halo 3 itself is $40, but if you take out the campaign (which is the case for O... Read Full Review

    Gears of War 3

    The culmination of Epic's epic trilogy has arrived, and it's well...epic.

    Gears of War established cover-based, tactical, team-driven gameplay when it first released on the Xbox 360 and even years later, the only stuff providing a challenge to it's throne are it's own sequels. While Gears of W... Read Full Review

    Bungie has done it again and showed the world why Halo isn't stepping off the throne of the console FPS anytime soon.

    Halo: Reach

    Bungie has done it again and showed the world why Halo isn't stepping off the throne of the console FPS anytime soon.

    To say Halo: Reach lives up to expectations would be a dramatic understatement. It exceeds them. I thought Halo 3 was a relatively packed and deep game, but Reach has the kind of customization options and variables that ... Read Full Review

    Halo Wars

    A great console RTS with a simple gameplay setup for unfamiliar players of the genre.

    Halo Wars sounds like a bad spin-off or attempt to make money off one of the big brand names in the industry. Well, that's what it sounds like. But after playing the demo and then later buying the game, I was actually pl... Read Full Review

    It may be more of the same, but if it ain't broke, don't fix it.

    Fight Night Round 4

    It may be more of the same, but if it ain't broke, don't fix it.

    Feels like it's been forever since we got a boxing game that was fun. Now don't get me wrong, I liked Facebreaker and Wii Sports just as much as the next guy waiting for Punch-Out to come back (and then it did...wow), bu... Read Full Review

    Halo 3

    Halo 3 is the culmination of what the series is all about.

    Ah, Halo. I didn't really like Halo much back in the days of the original Xbox. I thought the games were fun, but I hadn't quite played them enough (or online) to really get the jist of it. Halo 3 however, marks the poin... Read Full Review

    DJ Hero 2

    Very unique and a fantastic improvement over the original.

    Like Guitar Hero and Rock Band, the original DJ Hero was a very good game but it didn't quite have the formula down. Also like those games, the second entry in the franchise really blows the roof of ideas off and the mec... Read Full Review

    Guilty Gear fans will likely take to it, but everyone else will have some trouble.

    The term all style and no substance (or at least, less substance) couldn't be more true in reference to Arc System Works (the minds behind the Guilty Gear series) latest fighter, BlazBlue: Calamity Trigger. Just looking ... Read Full Review

    New Super Mario Bros. Wii

    New Super Mario Bros. Wii brings something new to the table, but it is ultimately best played like a pure Mario game.

    It's really hard to review the hugely established franchises. Many of them spend their sequels playing things safe and keeping the core of the game intact, while just adding some more polish and new features. Very often ... Read Full Review

    Mega Man 9

    The only bad thing about Mega Man 9 is that Capcom passed the opportunity to expand on the series.

    When I first heard rumor that a new classic Mega Man game would be in the works, I got all giddy with delight. I was extremely excited, as I have always enjoyed the Mega Man series and have played the majority of games (... Read Full Review

    God of War (Greatest Hits)

    God of War is the best action game ever made.

    I'm quite a fan of the Action genre. I love the games and they tend to be the ones I play non stop until I complete them. I remember Devil May Cry on the PS2, and it felt like it set the bar for Action of that console ge... Read Full Review

    Gears of War 2

    The things Gears 2 does better than the first are in vain because of a few flaws.

    The original Gears of War was the first game that made me want the Xbox 360. Needless to say, when I got a 360, I got Gears of War. It was an amazing experience, but it did leave areas to be desired. The game had tons of... Read Full Review

    Portal 2 is the quintessential sequel that fans of the original have been waiting for.

    The original Portal was a short, but high-quality game Valve put together with an enticing atmosphere and interesting sense of humor. The thrills didn't last long but what really matters is that the game was a taste of i... Read Full Review

    Mortal Kombat

    Mortal Kombat has a return to form with the most fundamental and competitive game thus far in the series.

    This game really is less about the roots of Mortal Kombat like they would lead you to believe, and actually plays more like Mortal Kombat finally evolving with the current generation of fighting games. Introducing a mete... Read Full Review

    Brink

    Brink sounds great on paper, but the execution is what keeps it from truly shining.

    This game is insanely mediocre. It lacks depth and variety which is not a trait that should be found in a game that is 100% multiplayer. There is absolutely nothing special about Brink whatsoever which is a shame because... Read Full Review

    Square's best work may be behind them, but they can still craft an RPG experience worth remembering.
