    Beware Red Skulls!

    Crimson Skies: High Road to Revenge

    Beware Red Skulls!

    I loved this game! I'm a sucker for 30s vintage dramas, and this fits the bill. It has the right degree of roguery in it to meet the times, but the heroes are still heroes. It's good versus evil, with just a light tou... Read Full Review

    An endurance test of killing aliens

    Halo (Xbox Collection)

    An endurance test of killing aliens

    This is the Lord of the Rings of first person shooters for XBox. It is what all the others model themselves off of and try to be. If imitation is the greatest form of flattery, then Bungie should feel extremely flatter... Read Full Review

    Just makes me want to say "Go Speed Racer, Go!"

    Midtown Madness 3

    Just makes me want to say "Go Speed Racer, Go!"

    This was the first racing game I bought and I loved it. I've played better since that time. The wide selection of vehicles is what makes this game stand out. Most racing games give you the opportunity to unlock a wi... Read Full Review

    Faithful to the Trilogy

    LEGO Star Wars

    Faithful to the Trilogy

    I enjoyed this game while I was playing it, but I don't think I will remember it a month from now. Similar to the movies in that regard. I loved LEGOs as a kid, & played with space LEGOs a lot, even though they w... Read Full Review

    Repetitive and redundant says it all

    Burnout 3: Takedown (Platinum Hits)

    Repetitive and redundant says it all

    Now, I don't have any complaints with the gameplay. The controls, cars, etc., were all good. My grief is with how the game goes on and on without going anywhere. I've played other racing games as well, and there was... Read Full Review

    A good storyline in a beautiful, if chunky, world.

    Fable

    A good storyline in a beautiful, if chunky, world.

    I'm an old D&D player, so I was a bit wary of this game at first. Could the paper role-playing I knew and loved be replaced by a console? The answer is no, but so what? After spending a good portion of my free t... Read Full Review

    How to give yourself a good brain scrub

    Tetris Worlds

    How to give yourself a good brain scrub

    I have to admit I like abstract puzzles like Tetris. Crosswords and sudoku are right up my alley. At the same time, I remember playing Tetris on a Gameboy in the early nineties and wondering where the challenge was. ... Read Full Review

    Great for die-hard fans, I suppose

    Star Wars: The Clone Wars

    Great for die-hard fans, I suppose

    OK. Being old enough to have seen the first three Star Wars movies in the theater and to get the Kenner action figures and take them out of the packaging and actually play with them, I wasn't impressed with Episodes I -... Read Full Review

    Such a good exhaustion when you're done!

    Far Cry Instincts

    Such a good exhaustion when you're done!

    OK, so it took me a month to complete this game. That's what I get for having a job. I was using my desk at work to pay my bills since I couldn't tear myself away from Far Cry when I got home (if I had the energy to do... Read Full Review

    Nostalgia's not as much as it could be

    Robin Hood: Defender of the Crown

    Nostalgia's not as much as it could be

    I remember playing Defender of the Crown on my brother's C64 and enjoying it 20 years ago. Unfortunately, it hasn't kept up with the times as well as I have. DoC tries to do both strategy and swordplay and does neith... Read Full Review

    Weapon of minor destruction

    Blood Wake (Platinum Hits)

    Weapon of minor destruction

    I mostly enjoyed this game. It has a good backstory, and sticks with the story to the end. It seems that it was developed with a sequel in mind, but that never materialized. I have two quibbles with the mechanics of... Read Full Review

    Curse you, pathetic humans!

    Destroy All Humans!

    Curse you, pathetic humans!

    I love this game! It does a great job of flipping the normal order of things, making it your job to control the alien invasion. The storyline is as subversive as the scanned thoughts. The mechanics of the game are w... Read Full Review

    If only it had taken half as long!

    The Simpsons: Road Rage

    If only it had taken half as long!

    Don't get me wrong, I love the Simpsons. And I love the basic concept of the game. However, there are a number of things that make the only reason I'm holding on to this is to entertain my sister-in-law when my nephew ... Read Full Review
