Spec Ops: The Line
A notch above being simply another shooter. But just a notch.
Clearly inspired by Joseph Conrad's Heart of Darkness (a character, John Konrad, is even named in the author's honor), SPEC OPS: THE LINE's story is unsurprisingly simple yet it feels fresh mainly due...
Gears of War 2
Bigger. Darker. Better.
Sequels are notoriously less convincing than their predecessors. Not the case with the ambitious GEARS OF WAR 2. *Bigger* are the game levels, the enemies and the bosses, so much so that in one oc...
Gears of War 3
Intense. Tragic. Epic.
The end of the war, finally, for better or for worse. War is not all glory and GEARS OF WAR 3 explicitly demonstrates that more than the first two acts of the trilogy. Sad and moving goes the stor...
A step forward, a step back.
After the innovating Halo: Combat Evolved, the expectations were extremely high for the sequel HALO 2. The great majority of them were fully satisfied: state-of-the-art graphics, a more intuitive HUD,...
A very thrilling end to the Covenant War!
The story of Master Chief continues as the war with the fanatic Covenant is about to conclude. This final game in the Halo trilogy presents more greatly conceived levels, more weapons and new equipmen...
Halo 3: ODST
A new look at Halo with a Blade Runner atmosphere.
An interesting way to describe HALO: ODST is this: it's Halo if it had been a film noir. The story revolves around a mystery surrounding the events following a crash landing of ODST (Orbital Drop Shoc...
Battlefield: Bad Company
A very refreshing combat game set in modern times.
Who would have thought a war game could achieve such an unusual balance between serious and humorous moments? Add to this a (partially) destructible landscape, nice graphics, very colorful characters,...
Battlefield: Bad Company 2
A second serving of badness!
What could have easily been a rehash of the original game turns out even better than its predecessor. Gone is the surprise of humor in a war game, yet the fun factor remains. In BAD COMAPNY 2, eve...
Transformers: War for Cybertron
Finally, a game for Generation 1 fans.
None of that modern movies crapness. This is the Transformers universe as the true G1 fans remember/imagine it. Is TRANSFORMERS: WAR FOR CYBERTRON worthy though? Yes and no. The story is pure Tran...
The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim
The ultimate RPG adventure.
Have you ever fantasized about wielding a magical sword, throwing a fireball spell, going into battle against undead sorcerers and flying dragons that breathe a fiery death onto you? Ever watched an a...
The story goes full circle, in more ways than one.
This where it all begins, this is where it all ends. Storywise, the world of Reach is important in Halo lore. This game shows why. The visuals and the gameplay are on par with the quality that is ...
Gears of War
Gears of War's mad world offers it all: superb graphics, innovative gameplay, nice story and colorful characters.
The Good -------------- Impeccable graphics * 2-player co-op campaign The Bad ------------ No "Mad World" song The Review ---------------- Gears of War is the very first FPS (First-Per...
Assassin's Creed delivers the goods where it counts.
The Good -------------- Awesome, realistic graphics * Easy intuitive controls * Open-world environment The Bad ------------ Missions quickly become redundant * Frustrating camera in combat ...
