Make no mistake, Captain America isn't a special movie-liscenced game. It's just another run-off-the-mill movie tie.in.
I bought Captain America a couple of days ago, when I went to gamespot to trade-in some games of mine to get some pre-orders. I saw the box of this game, and it's price-tag : 49,99. I said, what the heck, and took the pl... Read Full Review1 of 3 users found the following review helpful
I got Duke Nukem Forever a couple of days ago and I just beat it this morning. I'll try to give you my insight on what exactly this ancient relic of the past brings to the 2011 era. First and foremost, if you're expec... Read Full Review34 of 41 users found the following review helpful
Duke Nukem Forever
What I loved : Unique stages, vibrant color palette, funny moments, great level design. What I disliked : Subpar combat ( as always in the Spider-Man games ), horrible camera during wall crawling and the action of wal... Read Full Review2 of 4 users found the following review helpful
Starcraft II: Wings of Liberty
Singularity has a winning recipe and a few good tricks up its sleeves, but its various graphical oddities bring it down.
Loved : Good, mixed combat with enough weapons to entertain. Good atmosphere, while it last. There's a story worth noting, unlike most shooters. Bad : Unreal Engine 3 at it's worse with texture pop-in that...never pop... Read Full Review1 of 2 users found the following review helpful
Dead to Rights Retribution is an odd reboot to the franchise. But the sum of its parts don't make up for its price tag.
What I liked : - Awesome, noir batman-esque/max payne-ish setting - Dog fetches weapons and makes a good ally - Nice, overall artistic touch on the graphics. - Good presentation overall and slick menus. Wh... Read Full Review1 of 2 users found the following review helpful

Army of Two: The 40th Day
40th Day doesn't try to be just another action game ; it plays by its own rules instead, wich is pretty rare today.
I loved : - Likeable protagonists and kick-ass armors. - Gunplay feels extremely good, with heavy recoil on weapons. - Varied, well-crafted levels. - Interesting and fun new gameplay mechanics like the mock s... Read Full Review5 of 6 users found the following review helpful
The good : Artistic graphics up to the roof, clever dialog and sharp voice acting, well designed RTS ideas. The bad : Oddly paced, short single player campaign, framerate hickups, repetitive side-missions. Peop... Read Full Review3 of 7 users found the following review helpful
What I liked : Melee attacks are fun to use. The setting of the universe is perfect for a videogame. Cool main character. What I disliked : Arenas are the most stupid idea - ever. Platforming is badly executed. Jumpin... Read Full Review2 of 8 users found the following review helpful
Mini Ninjas tries to be a lot of things. One of these things is to be a kid's game, and it even fails that one.
What I liked : The constant charm, superb graphics, clever execution of some gameplay mechanics. What I disliked : Fun factor is literally at 0. No variety whatsoever in the game itself. Poorly implemented potion syst... Read Full Review7 of 13 users found the following review helpful
- What I liked : At times, funny. Some unique - and interesting - ways of murdering people. Music is catchy. - What I disliked : Clunky combat system, unfriendly challenges, lack of boss finishers in some case, over i... Read Full Review0 of 0 users found the following review helpful
What I loved : - Fun to use ''special'' weapons, wich a nearly constant ammo supply to allow you to make a good use of them often. - Solid shooting mechanics and most guns are well rendered. - Good level design ... Read Full Review4 of 5 users found the following review helpful
The Secret of Monkey Island: Special Edition
Secret of Monkey Island was great in 1990. By today's standards, it's incredibly lacking. Lazy remake ahead.
What I liked : - Somes jokes makes you smile. - Guybrush Threepwood's comments on anything. - The island in the intro. What I disliked : - Horrendeous animation, that are completely unacceptable by today's... Read Full Review5 of 19 users found the following review helpful
Call of Juarez : Bound in Blood has a few shortcomings, yet it doesnt stop it from being a blast to play.
Loved : - Superb graphics - Superb gunplay - Top-not voice acting - Terrifying audio Disliked : - Not enough differences between both characters in terms of abilities - Some rough edges on the graphi... Read Full Review1 of 4 users found the following review helpful
It's easy to see the direction Overlord 2 wanted to take, and its a shame that it fell down just before the goal.
Loved : - Truely unique gameplay experience. - Dark Tower and its visual upgrades - Artistic design Hated : - Half of the missions leave to be desired. - Missed opportunity in terms of '' dominion ''. ... Read Full Review2 of 5 users found the following review helpful
What I loved : - Ghostbusters 1990' era. Everything looks like it used to be almost twenty years ago, and it made me dive right in the movies of my youth. - Proton Pack. This gadget is amazing, superbly modeled and... Read Full Review1 of 1 users found the following review helpful
Resident Evil5 isn't a game for everyone, but those who'll be willing to use more brains than muscle will be pleased.
If you've been in the gaming industry in the past ten years, then most chances are that you've heard of RE5. Despite its departure from the overwhelming zombie hordes and creepy scenaries, the game still elevate the bar ... Read Full Review0 of 3 users found the following review helpful
What I loved : - Shape-shifting powers are, at first, an awesome idea. - Good stealth elements, wich are unexpected in the context of the game. - Some voice actors are quite good. - Lots of action. - You ... Read Full Review4 of 15 users found the following review helpful
Red Faction: Guerrilla is a pretty good game. If you can get over its bland and unimpressive graphics, of course.
Loved : -Mad-Max feeling of the junk-made vehicles and weapons. It really helps to give the game a certain ammount of beauty, since it lacks any in every other department. -Most vehicles are fun to use and very ... Read Full Review0 of 4 users found the following review helpful
Red Faction: Guerrilla
It's easy to imagine Cryostasis with more fleshed out ideas and see it as a must buy. But its not the case.
Cryostasis had loads of cool ideas. Snowstorms and stuck on a crashed nuclear ship struggling for survival against nature's wrath AND some weird enemies? Super realistic weapon reloading times? I was so in. Unfortunat... Read Full Review1 of 1 users found the following review helpful
Cryostasis: The Sleep of Reason
The new Prince of Persia isn't only a platforming reference, but also a rising masterpiece of a fairy tale.
Prince of Persia isn't for everyone. Let's make it clear. It's one of those games that some will love, and others will hate. Just like any other '' artisticly driven '' games out there. Remember Okami ? Ico ? Shadow o... Read Full Review5 of 7 users found the following review helpful

X-Men Origins: Wolverine (Uncaged Edition)
Good : Some cool finishers. Wolverine's healing ability. Well executed violence. Bad : Framerate. Some levels arent fun. Cutscenes. Abominable story-telling. Lack of combat moves. Wolverine is made by some talent... Read Full Review0 of 3 users found the following review helpful
First of all, i'm trying to be informative. This is also my opinion, and stuff that I may like or dislike could be different for you. Discretion is advised. The game's main protagonist is quite unique and original, al... Read Full Review6 of 11 users found the following review helpful
