    One year to make the game, and three years to figure out how to get Blizz fans to pay US$ for imaginary gear.

    Diablo III

    One year to make the game, and three years to figure out how to get Blizz fans to pay US$ for imaginary gear.

    First off, I like that it is a true sequel. Over the last few years, I've seen a lot of non-sequels, games that enjoyed the benefits of sharing a title with earlier successful games without actually furthering the brand'... Read Full Review

    A Rockstar product that reinvents the adventure game genre, marred by a pitiful attempt at console conversion.

    L.A. Noire: The Complete Edition

    A Rockstar product that reinvents the adventure game genre, marred by a pitiful attempt at console conversion.

    I really wish I could delve more into the game's content before reviewing it. I listened to my friends go on and on about how great L.A. Noire was on PS3, and I convinced myself that it would be worth paying the full $5... Read Full Review

    Volition attempts to revitalize this luke-warm franchise in all the wrong ways.

    Red Faction: Armageddon

    Volition attempts to revitalize this luke-warm franchise in all the wrong ways.

    Red Faction has a special place in my heart. It was one of the first shooters I ever played, and the successful implimentation of destroyable environments was a gaming milestone that is constantly underappreciated. To ... Read Full Review

    Imagine if Fallout 3 and Borderlands had a lovechild...  a unsightly, club-footed, horribly mutated lovechild.

    Rage

    Imagine if Fallout 3 and Borderlands had a lovechild... a unsightly, club-footed, horribly mutated lovechild.

    One thing they got right was the title, because RAGE is what you'll feel after sinking $60 into this overly-hyped abomination. I'd like to take this moment to say goodbye to all the sell-outs at G4 who've been packing t... Read Full Review

    A visually-stunning sequel that excites and inspires shooter fanatics, but doesn't bring anything new to the table.

    Crysis 2

    A visually-stunning sequel that excites and inspires shooter fanatics, but doesn't bring anything new to the table.

    Seriously, download the DX 11 enhancements and take a look around. The environments are beautiful, and the character models are very good, too. The AI functions reasonably well, but not intelligently. It doesn't take ... Read Full Review

    Despite the low score, I sincerely hope to see a sequel.  Thorton brings more Bond than any Bond title on the market.

    Alpha Protocol

    Despite the low score, I sincerely hope to see a sequel. Thorton brings more Bond than any Bond title on the market.

    I anxiously awaited Alpha Protocol, but I was thankful for second thoughts that I didn't preorder. AP is a disasterous product from Obsidian, who's given us brilliant titles like Fallout 3 and SWTOR 2. The performance ... Read Full Review

    Tomb Raider: Underworld

    This chapter in Lara Croft's adventurous life belongs in a tomb.

    Ran into a game-breaker in Underworld's Thailand stage. Lara needs to pull two pins out of the rope elevator's mechanisms to allow the ropes to move. The pin on the right side is a removable rod similar to the ones that ... Read Full Review

    I really like this game. Set aside my personal affinity for dystopian settings... Brink starts with a lot of the concepts typical of FPS deathmatch games and starts building towards progress where a lot of the ma... Read Full Review

    Portal is pure Valve goodness, but hardly worthy of its Half-Life legacy.

    Portal

    Portal is pure Valve goodness, but hardly worthy of its Half-Life legacy.

    You've seen Black Mesa. You've worn an environment suit. You know how cool quantum theory really is. So when Valve says they're going to give you more adventure, epic expectations are not entirely unreasonable. When ... Read Full Review

    Somewhere under all those bugs and poor level designs, there's a epic adventure waiting to be discovered.

    Assassin's Creed: Brotherhood

    Somewhere under all those bugs and poor level designs, there's a epic adventure waiting to be discovered.

    The Good: Ubisoft takes us back to rennaisance Italy with beautiful landscapes, immersive voice acting, convincing character models and textures, then breathes life into a story with returned characters from this ... Read Full Review

    Homefront

    I hope you like the box it came in, because there's very little inside.

    As an avid gamer, I learned some time ago to avoid buying games that are not reviewed, and especially those games that embargo media reviews prior to release. In this case, I spent with my heart and not my head, a... Read Full Review

    All the makings of an epic adventure, brought low by poor console-to-PC transition and desperate DRM measures.

    Assassin's Creed II

    All the makings of an epic adventure, brought low by poor console-to-PC transition and desperate DRM measures.

    You don't need to read on about the beautiful environments or the great voice acting or a convincing and well-written story of revenge... You've already heard it all in a dozen different reviews and it's all true. ... Read Full Review

    The best looking, least enjoyable superhero MMO on the market.

    DC Universe Online

    The best looking, least enjoyable superhero MMO on the market.

    Leave it to Sony Online Entertainment to phone it in on another great MMO concept. Granted, the appearance of DC Universe Online blows away most MMOs we've seen to-date. Metropolis is a gleaming idyllic city,... Read Full Review

    Monday Night Combat

    Fun, humorous and performs well, but not very deep, Monday Night Combat is a game that starts out fun and gets old fast.

    This multiplayer shooter put a lot up front - the intro cinematics and voice talent are humorous and entertaining. Once in-game, everything works well. Players combine fps and turrent defense tactics to co-op aga... Read Full Review

    Like Icarus, this virtual Cops 'N Robbers reached so high and fell very short.

    APB (All Points Bulletin)

    Like Icarus, this virtual Cops 'N Robbers reached so high and fell very short.

    Update, 7/22/10: Earlier this week, RTW added a patch to APB that activated the Punkbuster anti-hax service. The lack of anti-hax protection and the resulting rampant cheating were a large part of the reason that I... Read Full Review

    Star Trek Online

    Explore strange new worlds, seek our new civilizations... in a different game, because you won't find any of that here.

    It could have been so great. Sadly, Cryptic (of Champions Online infamy) got the contract. This one-dimensional game coasts across the counter on pure label appeal as Cryptic seeks to cash in quick before the wor... Read Full Review

    EA sells this glittered turd of a GTA clone as an improvement on the series's debut title.  Prepare to be disappointed.

    Mercenaries 2: World in Flames

    EA sells this glittered turd of a GTA clone as an improvement on the series's debut title. Prepare to be disappointed.

    Firstly, I'll quickly blast EA for packaging and selling yet another game with a pitiful excuse for an instruction booklet. I get the feeling that there's so much more to this game that I don't even know about bec... Read Full Review

    The Matrix Online

    Underestimated, underappreciated, underdeveloped and underachieving. This MMO just needs a little love.

    In the plus column: It's sci-fi... Finally! No orcs, no elves, no magic... and no F'ing gnomes. The writing is really cool. There's no "real world" experience - when you log in, you choose which "hardline", or phone boo... Read Full Review

    An MMO designed to defeat the Top Five List of things you hate about MMO's. Read my Week One review.
