    Sins of a Solar Empire

    GRAW is an absolutely amazing game with a frustratingly incompetent AI that almost ruins the entire experience.

    Tom Clancy's Ghost Recon Advanced Warfighter

    GRAW is an absolutely amazing game with a frustratingly incompetent AI that almost ruins the entire experience.

    G.R.A.W is one of those games that is really hard to review. There is so much about the game that is just absolutely amazing. However, there are a few, almost minor, things about the game that nearly ruin it entirely. ... Read Full Review

    New Super Mario Bros.

    New SMB brings back some classic gameplay, but it may be a little too simplistic.

    New Super Mario Bros occupies an unusual space in the Mario franchise. The visuals are much more reminiscent of the N64 or GC games. The levels, for the most part are a hybrid between the original SMB and Super Mario W... Read Full Review

    Galactic Civilizations II: Dread Lords

    Galactic Civ 2 is a surprisingly well rounded strategy game with a lot of depth.

    Turn based strategy games are pretty few and far between these days. With the exception of a few standouts like the Civ series, the genre sometimes seems like it may be destined to go the way of the Adventure genre. Th... Read Full Review

    Civ 4 continues the series tradition by making minor but important changes to the core game formula.

    Sid Meier's Civilization IV

    Civ 4 continues the series tradition by making minor but important changes to the core game formula.

    The civ series has always been an evolutionary series, rather than a revolutionary one. Each sequel to date has managed to maintain the core gameplay that made the original so addictive while improving on it in measurab... Read Full Review

    BioHazard 4

    A superb game on almost every level.

    For the record, survival horror is probably one of my least favorite genres and I have never before played a Resident Evil game. That said, I loved this game. Resident Evil 4 is one of those games that you can't help b... Read Full Review

    Shadow of the Colossus

    Shadow of the Colossus is a beautiful and humbling experience that will leave you in awe.

    Shadow of the Colossus is, whithout a doubt, one of the most surreal gaming experiences I have ever come across. This game defies convention in almost every way, and is perhaps the single best argument for the "games as... Read Full Review

    For all of its potential and ambition, Advent Rising is way to buggy and incomplete to recommend.

    Advent Rising

    For all of its potential and ambition, Advent Rising is way to buggy and incomplete to recommend.

    Let me start by saying that I really wanted to like Advent Rising. I'd been looking forward to this game for some time and, for what it's worth, I did have some fun playing this game. The story, while by no means the m... Read Full Review

    Metal Gear Solid 3: Snake Eater

    Snake Eater capitalizes on everything that makes Metal Gear what it is. The good right along with the bad.

    If you have any doubts let me put them to rest. Snake Eater is all Metal Gear Solid, the good right along with the bad. If the long, complicated stories of the previous installments have put you off, expect the same fr... Read Full Review

    Almost every aspect of God of War comes together to form a near perfect action game.

    God of War (Greatest Hits)

    Almost every aspect of God of War comes together to form a near perfect action game.

    God of War is a downright excellent game. Everyting about it is just plain fun. God of War reminds me a lot of Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time, in more ways than one. Both games combine excellent story telling, ac... Read Full Review

    Metal Gear Solid: The Twin Snakes

    If you're not looking for major changes, Twin Snakes is an excellent way to revisit an old classic.

    There's not a whole lot to say here if you've already played the original Metal Gear Solid. Twin Snakes is exactly the same game in almost every way. It has the same great story telling and the same great characters. ... Read Full Review

    The Sith Lords is an excellent followup to Bioware's masterpiece but really feels like it was rushed into production.

    Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic II: The Sith Lords

    The Sith Lords is an excellent followup to Bioware's masterpiece but really feels like it was rushed into production.

    The Sith Lords is an great followup to last years Knights of the Old Republic. In a nutshell it's pretty much more of everything you got in KotOR. I mean this of course in both a good and bad way. On the plus side O... Read Full Review

    Wind Waker is a top notch action adventure game with and excellent and original visual style.

    Max Payne 2 is a solid follow up to the original, but something is lost in the translation from PC to Xbox.

    Max Payne, that guy could have taken Normandy by himself if he had enough painkillers. If you've played the original Max Payne, you're not going to find anything surprising in the sequel. It's just more of Max doing wh... Read Full Review
