    Crysis 2

    Suffering from an identity crysis.

    Crysis 2 is a confused game because I'm not sure it knows what type of game it ultimately wants to be. It plays like a FPS, but it succeeds more when it's played as a stealth game à la Metal Gear Solid. Granted, you have... Read Full Review

    Dead Space 2

    Now with 100% More Necromorphs!

    I thoroughly enjoyed the first Dead Space. Guiding the unassuming hero, Issac Clarke, through his travails aboard the derelict, planet-cracking spaceship, the U.S.G. Ishimura, was both an intriguing and terrifying experi... Read Full Review

    Deus Ex: Human Revolution

    Patience is a virtue in the world of Deus Ex: Human Revolution.

    Deus Ex is one of those rare games that can either be as deep or as shallow as you want. It all depends on how you decide to approach its subject matter and how invested you choose to become in its mature narrative. O... Read Full Review

    Uncharted 3: Drake's Deception

    Naughty Dog once again delivers another triumphant adventure for PS3 owners.

    If you played the previous two games then you kind of have an idea of what to expect. If you haven't, you can still jump into this game and enjoy it. You'll be lost when it comes to some of the characters and their histo... Read Full Review

    X-Men Origins: Wolverine (Uncaged Edition)

    What do you get when you combine a badass, licensed character in a totally average action game? I'll give you one guess.

    When I play X-Men Origins: Wolverine I can't but help feel that it could have been so much more than what the finished product turned out to be. While Origins is not necessarily a bad game, per se, it is not exceptional ... Read Full Review

    Uncharted: Drake's Fortune

    Naughty Dog has raised the bar for all future action-adventure games. The only bad thing about the game is it has to end

    To say Uncharted: Drake's Fortune is a great game is a massive understatement. Naughty Dog has done a phenomenal job of crafting an irresistibly fun game by weaving an intriguing tale of suspense, daring and adventure in... Read Full Review

    Dead Space

    A refreshing story paired with excellent pacing and a haunting setting make Dead Space a must-play.

    Dead Space is a superb new entry in the survival-horror genre that never stops creating a very palpable, tension filled atmosphere through each of its twelve chapters. Combining the peril of the unknown with the thrill o... Read Full Review

    Mostly abandoning its horror traditions, RE5 attempts to switch up its game play in favor of teamwork and broad daylight

    Resident Evil 5 is a radical departure from any previous games you may have played in the franchise's history. Capcom incorporated a few new game play mechanics this time around; chief among them is a new co-operative mo... Read Full Review

    DreamWorks Kung Fu Panda 2

    Under no circumstance should any real gamer bother playing this title -- unless you're trophy hunting.

    I'll be honest, the only reason I played this game (let alone have a review for it) was for what I thought was going to be an "easy" platinum. Be that as it may, "easy" turned in to four separate play-throughs in order t... Read Full Review

    THQ almost tries too hard by delivering lots of cool moments, but nothing worth revisiting after the credits roll.

    Saints Row: The Third

    THQ almost tries too hard by delivering lots of cool moments, but nothing worth revisiting after the credits roll.

    After playing through this game twice I can safely say I saw everything Saint's Row: The Third had to offer. While SR3 isn't a bad game, per se, compared to Saint's Row 2 this one was lacking. It's a great example of sty... Read Full Review

    The precedent to which all future first person shooter games should strive to emulate.

    It might not be 'perfect' but it is the closest and best example of what a talented developer can deliver to that word.

    It is not often a sequel out performs the original source material. Certainly there are exceptions in other viable mediums such as film: "The Godfather Pt. II," "Aliens," "Terminator 2," "The Dark Knight," etc. However w... Read Full Review
