    Yet another rotten sequel to spoil the fun

    I am editing my original review, to say that the game does gert better. After a lack of anything else to play, I finished the game, and it did jump up a few point, barely. Graphics - Five years ago...maybe, just maybe... Read Full Review

    Quite possibly the worst follow up to a sports game that I have ever seen.

    Virtua Tennis 2009

    Quite possibly the worst follow up to a sports game that I have ever seen.

    I actually like the previous version of this game, and was excited about 2009 coming out (so much in fact I actually pre-ordered it). Boy was I in for a surprise... Graphics - Besides pictures of the players, very ver... Read Full Review

    Graphics - Nicely done and quite detailed. For an open ended title with limitless places to go, its hard to hide glitches and flaws, and this game had few of either. The character and creatures were standard issue, but i... Read Full Review

    Overlord II

    Started out fun, then the repetition set in and it was game over for me.

    What began as a promising game soon turned into a 20+ hour romp in the world of de ja vu all over again. Graphics - Well done but a bit to cartoon-ish for me. The environments were highly detailed and well designed. I... Read Full Review
