Metro: Last Light (Limited Edition)
Metro Last Light is a compelling atmospheric adventure through an oppressive and relentless world.
NOTE! This game relies heavily on you having played it's predecessor. Much of the poignancy was lost on me because of this. Also, the english voice acting is utterly terrible with a few exceptions, ma...
It's massive yet detailed, caters for skilled and novice and its free; there's nothing else like it.
A game like Planetside 2 should exist. It's concept is too exciting to have been contained to imagination. A large constant world, populated with thousands of players, filled with air and ground activ...
Tomb Raider (The Final Hours Edition)
It succeeds everything that was expected of a great Encharted clone and a by-numbers origin story, but not much else.
Lara Croft's latest adventure is a beautiful and explosive adventure through the exotic jungles of a mysterious island. It is touted as the origin story of how Ms Croft became the adventurous "survivo...
Portal 2 is a puzzlingly good adventure through Apature Science.
The portals from the first Portal are back, but the additions of great characters, a clever story, and stunning set pieces along with great new puzzle mechanics are what distinguishes Portal 2 from it...
Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3
MW3 offers a refined cinematic experience, but its shine and sparkle fades under familiar linearity and simplicity.
Call of Duty's Modern Warfare series has been the hallmark first person shooter series that has defined both the cinematic and the modern military shooter for so long as there have been cinematic and ...
Grand Theft Auto IV
The rich world of Liberty City and its inhabitants tell a dark, troubled and human story that is unforgettable.
Note This game must be played on a high end machine, with detail set to high. The world of liberty City looks detrimentally worse on medium settings and on PC it looks ragged and unclean. Also, I play...
Persson has discovered a mine of golden ideas. Unfortunately, hasn't made anything truly magnificent with it.
Minecraft is not exactly a video game as you know it. Here is a game void of a tutorial, there is no clear objective, no proverbial hand to guide you and no over-arching story. It'd be a stretch to ca...
The beginning to this trilogy is filled with countless flaws but remains one of my all time favorite games.
Mass Effect is considered by most critics as a flawed gem, but many fail to understand how flawed this game truly is. Mass Effect 2 was the game that drew players into this trilogy, and it must be for...
Terrorist Takedown 3
This shooter adds a fresh layer of stink to a strangely discovered series that was once bearable.
Okay, I know you're wondering why, so here's the reason why I'm a strange fan of this series. I've been traveling to Vietnam on periodic trips to see family every 3 or 4 years and every trip, I'v...
Call of Duty
Ambition and scale, vision and spectacle shed light on what was to come.
Capturing what World War II was like in a video game is no easy task. Do that in a first person shooter while making sure to not over do the hero saves the world cliché is also just as difficult. But ...
Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets
A magical recreation of Hogwarts and solid gameplay make this the best Harry Potter game yet.
Note this review is written in the perspective of an adult looking back at his time playing as a child. This review was written after all Harry Potter movie spin-offs were released. --------------...
Solid Shooting save this not-so-scary corridor gore fest.
FEAR 3 is the shooter that you probably didn't need, not during this heyday of shooters sprouting out all over the place. But if you crave atmosphere, solid level design, and a little bit of cathartic...
Duke Nukem Forever
Duke Nukem just threw a turd at your face, and that turd is Duke Nukem Forever.
Duke Nukem is back, and he's just thrown a turd at your face! Duke Nukem Forever is that proverbial turd, in a way its very much like the turd that in the game that you can pick up and throw around th...
Fallout: New Vegas
This is a big and awe inspiring game at first, unfortunately you won't want to look too closely at the details.
Fallout New Vegas is huge, sprawling and filled with things to do. It makes great strides to present you with staggering amounts of choices and various ways to do them. Unfortunately, as you progress ...
Postal 2: Share the Pain
Postal 2 is a very good lie, so don't feel too bad that you've been taken in.
Disclaimer: the following review was written in 2011, as a result Postal 2's graphics may not have held up so well over the years. However, vomit decals remain a delight, and turds have never looked a...
Mass Effect 2
ME 2 is ambitious, memorable and well made. Combat falls short, but this experience is still the most fun all year.
This game is amazing, but it's not for everyone; it's a cover shooter, it has a hefty story with an ambitious science fiction universe populated with realistic and interesting characters that you may ...
