    Great story, but not so good execution

    Batman: Arkham Origins

    Rated on November 23, 2013 by Don_Fireagle

    Great story, but not so good execution

    I own and have finished completely the previous two installments of the "Batman: Arkham __" series. For all three games I bought the collector's or special editions. My expectations were high from my ...

    LEGO The Lord of the Rings

    Rated on June 15, 2013 by Don_Fireagle

    A must-play if you're a LotR fan

    LEGO Lord of the Rings is an enjoyable game for people of all ages, and truly captures the spirit of the movie trilogy. The voice acting and sounds come directly from the movies but there are referenc...

    This is what Bioshock 2 should have been!

    BioShock Infinite

    Rated on May 01, 2013 by Don_Fireagle

    This is what Bioshock 2 should have been!

    I usually buy the Bioshock games after their price drops to the $20 price range and enjoy a good game without all the hype around its release date. This time around, I got it as a gift the day it was ...

    After playing through an amazing experience called Bioshock, I immediately thought of trying it again with its sequel, Bioshock 2. Unfortunately, this second run is not as great as the original. Th...

    When I reviewed Arkham Asylum back in 2009, I wrote that if they ever did a sequel, that it needed the rest of the rogue's gallery from the comics to make it better. It seems that they were reading th...

    Contra

    Rated on October 10, 2012 by Don_Fireagle

    This is the basis from where coop gaming was created.

    This was the game the kids in my neighborhood sat down and took turns playing together when it was video game time. It taught me to play as a team as opposed to playing for myself. Two average players...

    The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword

    Rated on April 24, 2012 by Don_Fireagle

    It almost became my favorite Zelda title, but it's a strong #2 by a mile on my list

    After buying the Wii for Twilight Princess, I was mostly let down by the controls and the story. This was back in 2006, and to this day I haven't finished that game. I left Link hanging right in front...

    Rated on March 14, 2012 by Don_Fireagle

    Awesome sandbox game - perfect for people with many hours to spare

    I read the reviews on several game sites before I bought it for a bargain at Game Stop ($20); you would think it's a so-so game. It's really one of the biggest sandbox games I've ever played, and if y...

    Not what I expected, in a good and a bad way

    Castlevania: Lords of Shadow

    Rated on August 25, 2011 by Don_Fireagle

    Not what I expected, in a good and a bad way

    This game was not what I expected. I didn't like the way the game was built. Mixing too much of different things form other popular games shouldn't have been the norm on this title. Castlevania has...

    I've played this before...isn't this Metal Gear 2: Snake's Revenge?

    My review title refers to the North American release of Metal Gear 2 on the NES. I won't go over the story of how the Japanese and North American versions of Metal Gear 2 are two different games, but ...

    A very frustrating but satisfying experience

    This review is not about the game story, mechanics, graphics, etc.; the are about the same as its predecessor. The focus on this review is about acquiring the 242 stars available in the game, which i...

    Incredible game!

    I got Bioshock a few years after the hype, hearing a lot of people and reading many magazines saying it was the greatest game out the year it came out. I got it on Christmas 2009 from my wife, who got...

    Mad City

    Rated on January 26, 2010 by Don_Fireagle

    This is one of the most popular platformers for the NES

    Let me start by stating this: the game is very difficult. It's not a good game per se, but back in the day, it's what we had, and you finished what you started, good game or not. This game is so di...

    I'm biased; it's my favorite NES Castlevania game

    I got this game for the NES through a bet: back when I was 10, my parents were watching a movie late at night we all had seen before. My sister and I go to the family room, and my parents ask the titl...

    If you haven't played this game in the SNES, but like games like Castlevania: Symphony of the Night, you owe yourself to play what started the great run of exploration games. The satisfaction of findi...

    Mega Man 9

    Rated on January 26, 2010 by Don_Fireagle

    Mixing old-school with pervasive and masochistic play

    This game is very hard. Probably harder than Mega Man 2 or 3. But it's a difficulty based on level design mixed with cheap shots at the player. Not only did many of the jumps were made pixel perfect (...

    This was my first try at Mega Man games when I was young. It was hard as hell, but I persevered. I still remember the feeling when I finally finished this game. It felt like I had done the impossible....

    Take a good franchise and "Onimusha" it.

    If you haven't figured it out from the review deck above, I don't like Onimusha that much. I didn't like Devil May Cry, either. That kind of game where you're fighting the same enemies with a limited ...

    First person shooter for the PS3, but not as good as others out there.

    This wasn't the first game I got when I bought my PS3, but I got it because at the time it was about the ONLY first person shooter for the console. The game is all right, but is not the best that one ...

    Improves the GTA formula to hilarious heights, but it still is a sandbox game.

    If you've played sandbox games before, you know that after a while, you will end up getting tired of doing missions and will start running around, doing mischievous stuff to laugh for a while. This ga...

    Assassin's Creed was the first game I picked up when I bought my PS3, as it was on sale. I did like the game, although most of my time was spent looking for flags and Templars to take out, doing repet...

    Hands down the best Batman video game ever released!

    I'm biased; I've been a Batman fan most of my life. Even though I have not played every Batman game under the sun, I've played the most popular ones out there, and none of them size up to what Eidos d...

    Battlefield: Bad Company is a solid game to play if you like first person shooters, but what really shines is the multiplayer. The single player campaign basically shows you the ropes of how to us...

    Starts out good, but like many sandbox games, it's longer and more repetitive than it has to be.

    I got this game because I read decent enough reviews on it. After the first 4-5 hours playing it, most of the missions became a chore not worth the diamonds I was getting paid. The world you explor...

    I've been a fan of Bionic Commando since I got the original NES game during the 80's, and I played and replayed it so much I memorized it. When Bionic Commando: Rearmed came out, I was one of the peop...

    I have been playing the Metal Gear series ever since it came out on the NES. Actually, I did not ask for the game; my father bought it to play it himself on the NES he had given me. It was the first a...
