Ninja Gaiden II
A playable and vaguely passable tragedy.
I'm sure that if anyone even bothers checking into this game here on GS, chances are good they will probably see my score and vote it down without reading why. That's fine. I've learned that no matter...
Perfect Dark Zero
Unfinished, shallow, awful, lazy, rushed, sloppy, ugly.<br /> <br /> And no, I'm not trying to name the seven dwarfs.
In another review I mentioned how it can be a real shame when a game that is actually really good gets a sequel that is really bad. In no other game can I imagine this being more readily evident than ...
Dead or Alive Xtreme 2
Little more than a rejection simulator.
In the last game, Dead or Alive Xtreme Beach Volleyball, you pretty much got exactly that. It was a passable at best volleyball game with mini games, item collection, and a poorly made friendship simu...
Gets way too much slack for it's shortcomings.
Now, before you fanboys grab your torches and pitchforks, I want to ask that you at least hear me out. Barring that you're 13 and extraordinarily immature, this is a humorless, generic, bland, and ver...
She's sexy and she kills Nazis, too bad that's about all she's got going for her.
I really wanted to love this game, not for it's sexy heroine in her tighter than skin outfit, or the fact that the game allows me to kill, rather brutally, the one thing I love killing more than Zombi...
Mercenaries 2: World in Flames
Almost utterly broken.
This sandbox game had so much potential it's sickening. I thoroughly enjoyed the first Mercenaries game, heck, to this day some of my favorite memories of sticking C4 to a jeep then charging at an ene...
Trusty Bell: Chopin no Yume
Pretty yet shallow.
This was the first, and so far only, JRPG I've played on this system, and it's done a great deal of damage to my already waning interest in this particular kind of role-playing game. Graphically, the ...
Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles
To it's credit, it's a pretty exact port of the arcade version.
While I never got into the whole Ninja Turtles fad (I was a too old to dig it then) I can appreciate a good old fashioned brawler. My heart still flutters a bit when I remember the glory days, when th...
Street Fighter IV
Ugly, arduous, unplayable thanks to the poorly made Xbox 360 directional pad.
This game proves hype and nostalgia are all it takes to be a big seller no matter how bad the product is. Let's not kid ourselves, if this weren't Street Fighter, it wouldn't have reviewed as well as ...
Mr. Driller Online
Broken, bland, and bad are the kindest things I can say about Mr. Driller Online.
What online? You mean the online where I get to see nobody playing a formulaic and dated game about digging that is less about strategy and more about pure brainless chance? There is little strate...
Robert Ludlum's The Bourne Conspiracy
Wasn't Bourne to be a good game.
Looks like we have yet another game based on movie license, only this time it's more or less based on the characters and events rather than any particular movie, which intrigued me. I'm a fan of the m...
Shadow of the Colossus
A climax from start to finish!
It's been said, but for the sake of this review I will say it again; This is a game made up almost entirely of boss battles. There is more to this game than simply hunting for bosses, but essentially ...
Unremarkable, but heck, it's free.
A free side scrolling shooter, Aegis Wing is about as "Plain Jane" as they get. There's little to no story here, just a teeny tiny ship flying through and oddly scrolling background while destroying b...
Bodies, bloodshed, bullet time!
Cop seeks justice for murdered family. Sounds like a cheesy plot for another corny made for TV movie, but in this case it's a tale of intrigue, action, and the sad soul of a man that must face his dem...
Guild Wars Special Edition
All the fun of an online role-playing game without all the calories.
With the plethora of online role-playing games opening up these last few years it can be difficult to find something you'd really want to commit yourself to playing and invest your precious gaming tim...
It's the baby food of puzzle games.
Columns is a lot like many other puzzle games out there intent on reinventing the wheel. I could go on about how Tetris is unmatchable, but that would be glib and actually untrue, since Dr. Mario and ...
Tony Hawk's Pro Skater 3 (Platinum)
Flawlessly executed, endlessly replayable!
This was my first Tony Hawk or extreme sports game, and I was unprepared for the sheer playability of what has long since become a favorite in my collection. This game is totally accessible, which is ...
World of Warcraft
Broken, addictive, time consuming.
It would be utterly nonsensical to even attempt to cover the scope of what this game offers, so I'll do my best to keep it short and to the point. As a game, World of Warcraft colloquially called W...
Dragon Quest V: Tenkuu no Hanayome
Don't know much hiragana from katakana, but I had lots of fun struggling through this game.
Boy oh boy was it a struggle! Imagine an epic role playing game with lots of text and little in the way of icons (such as Final Fantasy V) and you might have an idea of what it was like for me playing...
SiN Episodes: Emergence
Fun proof as to why episodic content is a bad idea.
I have to say, this is a great little demo, which is really all it is. A long demo of a game that will never be finished. You get a good amount of play, good voice acting, a fair story (from what litt...
Mario Kart DS (DS Bundle)
As a game, Mario Kart DS gets just about everything right. Too bad the online community is full of cheese.
When the original Mario Kart game was released for the SNES I was skeptical. Until that game had been shown to the public I had mostly only seen racing games that essentially had me running in circles...
