    Shift 2: Unleashed

    'Shift 2' tries to be one of the best sim-racing titles, but is hurt by two very large problems.

    'Shift 2' is not a bad game, by any means. It's a pretty decent sim-style racer that has a pretty long single player career, good online play, nice graphics, and is fun to play......most of the time. It is not fun to pla... Read Full Review

    Demon's Souls

    What could have been a great action/RPG, ends up being a masochistic mess of bad controls and horrid game design.

    Let me just start out by saying that I do love difficult games. I have been playing games since the Atari days & have had my fair share of games that have put my patience to the test. But 'Demon's Souls' is a different a... Read Full Review

    While the single-player campaign isn't as good, the improved online multi-player makes this a worthy sequel.

    For early PS3 owners, 'Resistance: Fall Of Man' was the saving grace of the console. Back then, there wasn't a lot of quality games out for the PS3. For that reason, I think 'R:FOM' was always slightly overrated, in my o... Read Full Review
