    Assassin's Creed III

    The plot hasn't been concluded, but the series is obviously lost.

    With Assassin's Creed 3, I threw myself into late 18th century North America and landed hard, with a crash, and ended up limping through the rest of the game. After the mediocre AC: Revelations title was released, I had ... Read Full Review

    Hitman: Absolution

  • Review Score:6
    Instead of another well thought-out Hitman engagement, we're left with a steaming pile of Hollywood script.

    Hitman: Absolution

    Instead of another well thought-out Hitman engagement, we're left with a steaming pile of Hollywood script.

    The Hitman formula has surprisingly remained stable from the "tactical strategy" games of the early 2000's. While games like the Rainbow Six series eventually fell from "plan, then execute" to "rush and kill", Hitman hel... Read Full Review

    Dishonored

  • Review Score:9
    A brilliant, stable game crossing genres and inviting a variety of different styles of play.

    Dishonored

    A brilliant, stable game crossing genres and inviting a variety of different styles of play.

    One of the greatest gifts a game developer can give a player is choice. Choice gives dimension to the game world, making it more real as it seemingly bends and warps according to the player's actions. Choice is the diffe... Read Full Review

    XCOM: Enemy Unknown

  • Review Score:8.5
    XCOM is a wonderful revival of turn-based unit combat and a welcomed addition to the console games arsenal.

    XCOM: Enemy Unknown

    XCOM is a wonderful revival of turn-based unit combat and a welcomed addition to the console games arsenal.

    I had played a download of the original XCOM years after it was already fading from other people's hard drives. Being a student of Lords of the Realm and Total War, I had an appreciation for turn-based tactics but not on... Read Full Review

    Tom Clancy's Ghost Recon: Future Soldier

    Fun, exciting, and a welcome balance between the slow, deliberate old-school Ghost Recon and today's action shooters.

    Tom Clancy's Ghost Recon: Future Soldier

    Fun, exciting, and a welcome balance between the slow, deliberate old-school Ghost Recon and today's action shooters.

    "Slow down and think." That's all I ask of my shooter games. This latest installment of the Tom Clancy Ghost Recon series, Future Soldier, tries to cling to the standard set eleven years ago of plotting, planning, and ai... Read Full Review

    Sniper Elite V2

  • Review Score:6.5
    A sloppy, unrealistic environment hinders gorgeous ballistics, keeping Sniper Elite V2 from changing the shooter genre.

    Sniper Elite V2

    A sloppy, unrealistic environment hinders gorgeous ballistics, keeping Sniper Elite V2 from changing the shooter genre.

    I love to snipe. I've always played the role of sniper in my games, whether Ghost Recon, Battlefield 2, and even archery in Oblivion. In 2005, tactical military shooters were waning to action shooter games, as were prope... Read Full Review

    A brilliant idea but a closed world and poor logic close the case early for this game.

    L.A. Noire

    A brilliant idea but a closed world and poor logic close the case early for this game.

    Rockstar greatly delivers the innovation in LA Noir by taking what could easily be a "pixel hunt" mystery game and turning it into a crime saga. LA Noir is broken down into crime stories, a la "cases", and the overall st... Read Full Review

    Assassin's Creed: Revelations - Now with 50% less assassinations!

    Ubisoft touted Assassin's Creed: Revelations as the epic finale that would bring a close to the story lines of Altair, Ezio, and Desmond. Not only did it not bring anything to a close, but it failed to live up even to th... Read Full Review

    A noir cyberpunk detective story that is high on options of gameplay, but low on actual mystery and investigations.

    Deus Ex: Human Revolution

    A noir cyberpunk detective story that is high on options of gameplay, but low on actual mystery and investigations.

    Not being a veteran of the first Deus Ex, which is considered blasphemy by the rest of my gamer friends, I jumped into Square Enix's stealth/combat/adventure not knowing what to expect. The cyberpunk setting with noir to... Read Full Review

    For the voracious fans of the series like me, it's another fine feast of heraldry, blood, and glory. Banzai!<br />

    Eleven years after the first strategy masterpiece from Creative Assembly, Shogun 2 returns to its Far East roots and envelops us in a rich world of strategy and combat, making it the most beautiful and brutal game of the... Read Full Review
