    This is the adventure game equivalent of a rail shooter.  So there's no adventure, but a fair amount of shooting.

    Uncharted: Drake's Fortune

    Rated on April 04, 2011 by Grimsooth

    This is the adventure game equivalent of a rail shooter. So there's no adventure, but a fair amount of shooting.

    This is a rail shooter with jump "puzzles". The sort of thing where you have to time it right, or just stand in the right place at the right time, several times in a row. When you start the game you...

    Once you could make the GTA world your own, now there are no optional missions and earning money is pointless.

    Grand Theft Auto IV

    Rated on June 24, 2010 by Grimsooth

    Once you could make the GTA world your own, now there are no optional missions and earning money is pointless.

    Where once the GTA franchise represented the best in open city gaming now it's just as scripted as every other game out there. You don't have the option to select who you work for, you must work for ...

    While a perfectly enjoyable game there are some control issues which can make the final 3 battles infuriating.

    Assassin's Creed

    Rated on May 30, 2010 by Grimsooth

    While a perfectly enjoyable game there are some control issues which can make the final 3 battles infuriating.

    This game is a lot like Thief, except Garrett doesn't want to kill anyone and Altaïr only steals people's lives. It's curious then that Altaïr refuses to kill a particular end boss because that perso...

    This is simply a poor copy of World of Warcraft, with little of the shine but well colored by the LOTR milieu.

    The Lord of the Rings Online: Siege of Mirkwood

    Rated on March 20, 2010 by Grimsooth

    This is simply a poor copy of World of Warcraft, with little of the shine but well colored by the LOTR milieu.

    This game has all the standard MMO pitfalls including the grind, worthless currency, foolish monsters, and pointless quests. LOTRO is very much unfun and relies on the Lord of the rings setting to ...

    Early travel powers and costume design are cool, but they don't compensate for the terrible social menu.

    Champions Online

    Rated on March 20, 2010 by Grimsooth

    Early travel powers and costume design are cool, but they don't compensate for the terrible social menu.

    The costume creator is likely what first drew you to this game, and if that's all you require of a game you won't be disappointed. Creating a character concept, a costume for that character, and th...

    This began the great undoing of fun in games.

    World of Warcraft

    Rated on January 21, 2010 by Grimsooth

    This began the great undoing of fun in games.

    Let me just say, right off the bat, that World of Warcraft was ground breaking when it came out, and it took me a long time to realize that it's just not that fun. A lot of games copied this mechanic...

    Bethesda has made (yet another game) that defines what an RPG should be.  It's upgraded Oblivion plus guns.

    Fallout 3

    Rated on January 09, 2010 by Grimsooth

    Bethesda has made (yet another game) that defines what an RPG should be. It's upgraded Oblivion plus guns.

    Fallout 3 is one of my favorite games of all time. Bethesda is Iconic in the RPG genre, and dominates my top 5. Daggerfall was their break out which, while incredibly buggy, was an amazing game in i...

    This is not WoW, it is D&D, if you're not a team player you will fail.  You will have a lack luster experience.

    Dungeons & Dragons Online: Eberron Unlimited

    Rated on January 09, 2010 by Grimsooth

    This is not WoW, it is D&D, if you're not a team player you will fail. You will have a lack luster experience.

    This really is "D&D, online" so lets just get that out of the way. Turbine didn't sit in a room and ask themselves, "How do we make a really great MMO." They tried to take the table top game (a.k.a....

    The stages of life are a farce, and serve to rush you to the space portion.  Which is the actual game.

    Spore

    Rated on October 23, 2008 by Grimsooth

    The stages of life are a farce, and serve to rush you to the space portion. Which is the actual game.

    While promised a layered, near "4 games in one" experience, what you really end up with is "3 mini-games + 1 actual game" The three mini-games, which you're quickly rushed through, are a canvas for t...
