I've played all the assassin's creeds save the handheld ones, and I came into this one with a lot of promise that ultimately just turned into frustration over numerous step backs in gameplay.Pacing wise I think ACIV is ... Read Full Review1 of 1 users found the following review helpful
8 by itself and fairly good, but have to say, sadly, avoid the expansion that is what costs the score.
I can't seem to review Enemy within by itself, so I'm putting this here. The original game is in most way a very good game. By itself, I'd probably give it a 8. This is more about the expansion though. I bought the ... Read Full Review1 of 1 users found the following review helpful
I can see why a lot of people liked this game, but I can't say I do. The presentation is top notch and all, but most the challenging puzzles are all about trial and error and/or tight timing (and I mean tight). You ca... Read Full Review1 of 1 users found the following review helpful
There is a lot going for this game, but it has a few key missing pieces that I just can't forgive it for.
Ni No Kuni has some great backing. I mean, seriously, Level 5 and Studio Ghibli? That's a major powerhouse team. And for the most part they deliver, but not quite. Pretty much everything in the presentation is grea... Read Full Review1 of 2 users found the following review helpful
Got done with this one over the weekend and I'm impressed. I have to particular obsession with stealth games, having to go through a level and just knocking out everyone I can, and this game fed well into that obsession... Read Full Review0 of 0 users found the following review helpful
Probably like a lot of people, I took advantage of the Humble bundle offer and this game and its expansion were a part of it. Don't regret the buy, but there is definite issues that make me very glad I didn't pay full pr... Read Full Review0 of 0 users found the following review helpful
I'm going to preface my review here to say I kinda burned out on Civ 5. It lasted me several weeks, then another week a couple months later, but I was done. So, when I saw this expansion up for sale, I was really debat... Read Full Review1 of 3 users found the following review helpful
Seems 2011 is the year of terribly off the mark reviews for Gamespot, and I think SS stands out as the most off the mark. While SS isn't the best in the series, I would place place quite high. So, let's deal with the... Read Full Review0 of 1 users found the following review helpful
A very strong entry in the franchise that is just missing a bit on a few bits here and there that hold it back.
Well, here we are on the 3rd installment of this franchise, one that has some weird ups and downs. Unlike Invisible War, Human Revolution is definitely a member of the franchise that lives up to the name, but definitely... Read Full Review1 of 1 users found the following review helpful
A strong successor to infamous, but with some issues and not quite the improvement it should have been.
I finished playing infamous 2 yesterday after a marathon play session into the wee hours of the morning and overall a very good game. However, I can't give it a 9. It feels like 2 steps forward, 2 steps back, and you w... Read Full Review0 of 0 users found the following review helpful
I'm not going to say much in this review, because I give up. There is a lot of talk about the story and other issues out there, and from what little I've managed to endure through, I can say those complaints seem to be ... Read Full Review6 of 11 users found the following review helpful
I'm not going to regurgitate my AC2 review, so let's hit some of the highs and lows that still carry over from the predecessor. Graphic still good, but still kinda repetitive. Story is a little weaker, but overall stil... Read Full Review0 of 0 users found the following review helpful
Civilization is starting to remind me a lot of Dynasty Warriors. Seriously, how many times can you redo essentially the same game? However, unlike Dynasty Warriors, which is a guilty pleasure for me, Civ always seems t... Read Full Review1 of 2 users found the following review helpful
I've been debating what to give SC II, 8.5 or 9.0, and I finally fell with 9.0 just because the single player is probably the best RTS single player I've played in a long time. But, let's drill it all down first. Pre... Read Full Review1 of 3 users found the following review helpful
Well, finally done this installment of the good old FF series and once all is said and done, I definitely can say it is probably one of the weakest of the series for its time. FF 13 does a lot right. The combat syste... Read Full Review2 of 2 users found the following review helpful
Supreme Commander 2 is one of those sequels that makes you wonder just what audience they were shooting for. The answer seems to be a much lower end crowd that your typical RTS fan. It's still a good game, but not, i... Read Full Review5 of 5 users found the following review helpful
Well, after 3 starts, I finally finished this game a couple days ago and it's time to put my thoughts down on it. This is not an easy one to classify, but in the end I got to say, especially compared to reviews it has b... Read Full Review3 of 6 users found the following review helpful
Bioshock 2 fixes a lot of the core issues with the original, but sadly doesn't distinguish itself from that original.
Wasn't long ago when the original Bioshock came out, and although I liked it, I felt it was fairly overrated by the professionals. It had its strong points but definite flaws that I felt the reviewers were giving far to... Read Full Review2 of 2 users found the following review helpful
Got AC II for good old X-mas, and having recently finished it, I feel like giving a review. Overall, right off the top, I'll say I enjoyed it for the most part. However, given the issues I did encounter, I can't give i... Read Full Review0 of 0 users found the following review helpful
I just finished beating Muramasa, so with it fresh in my mind, it's time to give my thoughts on it. I think it can be easily be said that this is a beautiful game. It's not pushing huge polygon counts, or any of that... Read Full Review2 of 2 users found the following review helpful
Recently I reviewed Super Mario Galaxy, and like that game, this one had been gathering a nice layer of dust for several months as I was distracted with other things. So, after finishing Mario, it was time to get my mon... Read Full Review1 of 1 users found the following review helpful
This is a strange one for me. I've always had an odd relationship with the core Mario title. I play them, I truly appreciate them, but they just don't inspire the level of enjoyment that I'd expect. Now, I bought th... Read Full Review2 of 3 users found the following review helpful
Well here we are, and not that long ago we had the release of the original Supreme Commander, and now we have it's expansion (possibly the 1st expansion), and it's a strong entry, but not without it's issues. So, let'... Read Full Review7 of 8 users found the following review helpful
Crysis has been on everyone's radar for quite a while on it's graphics, but with it finally in gamers hands does it deliver on the promise. I think the answer is a yes, but it's not without some technical hitches. Fi... Read Full Review2 of 3 users found the following review helpful
Here we are with the 2nd episode of Half Life 2... which is kinda the 3rd episode seeing as Half Life 2 the original sorta acts as episode 1, but whatever. Naming aside, episode 2 continues on in HL2 tradition of solid ... Read Full Review0 of 0 users found the following review helpful
Every once in a while you'll run into a game you just love despite a glaring fault. This is that kind of game.
It is really hard to review Portal. What do you say about a First Person Shooter with almost none of the normal First Person Shooter trapping, and that is really just First Person Puzzle game? I don't really know, but... Read Full Review0 of 0 users found the following review helpful
WoW is a game that aims to set a new standard in MMORPGs, and it has essentially done so, but not without many an issue.
I've been aiming to review WoW for a while now. Having played FFXI, and City of Heroes, I feel I have at least some experience in the field. Additionally, unlikc official reviews, I can tell you the state of affairs in... Read Full Review0 of 1 users found the following review helpful
Having just got myself a completely new rig (last one was pushing 5 years old and was only pretty good then), I decided my first serious game to get was Bioshock. Now, right off the top, it was a fun game, and I don't r... Read Full Review4 of 4 users found the following review helpful
I own Naruto: Ultimate Ninja, and as my review for it said, I found it to be surprisingly good and it basically sold me immediately on Ultimate Ninja 2. Now, while Ultimate Ninja 2 does improve on things, it also messed... Read Full Review3 of 5 users found the following review helpful
A technically demanding game that is very true to it's Total Anniliation roots while still adding some nice new elements
Having played Total Anniliation, I jumped right into Supreme Commander and wasn't disappointed. It takes everything that TA did right and adds more, with only some slight quibbles holding it back. So, what do we have... Read Full Review9 of 9 users found the following review helpful
Zelda TP is one of those games that is going to work for a lot of people, but if you're like me you just can't quite forgive some of the issues. So, let's start off with the Gameplay. This is classic Zelda. You got ... Read Full Review1 of 1 users found the following review helpful
The first real stiff competion the Zelda series has ever had, and in my book a must get for any fan of the genera.
You'll hear it probably every time Okami is brought up, and that is Zelda. There is no doubt that Zelda is a strong influence on Okami in many ways, but Okami is more than a simple copy-cat, it's an awesome title in its... Read Full Review3 of 3 users found the following review helpful
I'm a pretty big RTK fan, and have bought most the recent RTK titles. X is my latest, and after recently having gone back to play it again, I think I have a good feel for what works and what doesn't. Okay, what works... Read Full Review1 of 2 users found the following review helpful
I would almost be tempted to give this game a good review, if the idiotic game designed hadn't messed up the difficulty.
Why the *bleep* is it so hard to do NORMAL? It seems, nowadays, that it's either throw your controller across the room outrageously difficult, or mindnumbing easy to the point you could be asleep and win. This unfort... Read Full Review2 of 6 users found the following review helpful
I went in not expecting much, and was pleasantly surprised. It's not going to blow you away, but it still quite fun.
If you're like me, someone who didn't even know this game was coming out, you probably looked at it and thought a couple things: It's a licensed game, therefore it will suck, and it's a licensed fighting game so it will... Read Full Review2 of 2 users found the following review helpful
Oh Capcom, shame on you. Let me just start out by saying, I really didn't feel DMC was AAA for me. I could appreciate it, but kinda like a deaf person at the opera, I couldn't truly enjoy the experience due to the di... Read Full Review1 of 1 users found the following review helpful
A truly beautiful game that follows the artistic standard of Ico well, while also distinquishing itself as unique.
Where do you start talking about a game that has nothing by bosses? It is a truly different experience. Graphically I don't think you're going to find a game that is the better than Shadow on PS2. It will hold it's ... Read Full Review1 of 1 users found the following review helpful
