    While this is a good time, do not expect the same glory from days past!

    Max Payne 3

    Rated on December 18, 2012 by Madbeast8888

    While this is a good time, do not expect the same glory from days past!

    I loved the first two Max Payne games, and had this one set for pre-order long before its release. While I am not going to tell you that this game is not fun, or that the combat is not familiar and v...

    An excellent re-imagining of a classic in the genre!

    XCOM: Enemy Unknown

    Rated on December 14, 2012 by Madbeast8888

    An excellent re-imagining of a classic in the genre!

    Well let me first say that I did not spend the amount of time on the original as I am sure many fans of this genre have, but this game certainly grabbed me from the beginning and made me understand wh...

    A sizable let-down from the original masterpiece...

    Mass Effect 2

    Rated on May 12, 2010 by Madbeast8888

    A sizable let-down from the original masterpiece...

    First, let me begin by saying that the first Mass Effect is quite easily one of my favorite RPGs of all-time...that perfect blend of engaging storyline, RPG elements, and combat depth brought about a ...

    Pretend this thing does not exist...you would be better off!

    Black College Football Experience: The Doug Williams Edition

    Rated on November 06, 2009 by Madbeast8888

    Pretend this thing does not exist...you would be better off!

    So you take a game that is immensly terrible, and make a sequel. This idea has never worked before, and this one is certainly no exception! While there are certainly some things in common between th...

    For this genre, you would be hard pressed to find a better game!

    Shadow Complex

    Rated on September 09, 2009 by Madbeast8888

    For this genre, you would be hard pressed to find a better game!

    This game is deserving of any and all accolades that it has already received. The visuals are simply stunning, and really go a long way in making the game feel much more than the 2-D side-scrolling g...

    Take NCAA, strip away everything worth anything, and you have this trash.

    Black College Football Experience (Legendary Edition)

    Rated on August 10, 2009 by Madbeast8888

    Take NCAA, strip away everything worth anything, and you have this trash.

    Ah, where to begin? Trying to point out the various ways in which this game sucks would be an effort in futility. I will keep this one short and sweet, as spending too much time writing this review ...

    Excellent finish to an excellent trilogy!

    Halo 3

    Rated on December 28, 2007 by Madbeast8888

    Excellent finish to an excellent trilogy!

    What else is there to say about this long-awaited finish to what has become one of the most sought-after franchises this side of console gaming? As far as FPS games are concerned, this game certainly...

    The way that any remastered game should be done!

    Prince of Persia Classic

    Rated on December 28, 2007 by Madbeast8888

    The way that any remastered game should be done!

    It should be known that this review is coming from someone who truly enjoyed the original game in all of its glory, especially the extended version that was released on SNES some years later. The Pri...

    A must-have for FPS lovers!

    Tom Clancy's Rainbow Six Vegas

    Rated on December 27, 2007 by Madbeast8888

    A must-have for FPS lovers!

    Sometimes, you want to play a FPS that has a more arcade-ish style to it...one where the "run & gun" strategy is the mainstay. Then, sometimes you want that FPS that brings realism and serious strate...

    Evidence that being free is not necessarily a good enough reason to download a game.

    Yaris

    Rated on November 16, 2007 by Madbeast8888

    Evidence that being free is not necessarily a good enough reason to download a game.

    So I have lately been thumbing through the X-Box Live Arcade section to see what games are available, check out some trial games to see if the $5-$10 is worthy for the game, and so on and so forth. I...

    Some faults in the port are not enough to drown this all-time classic with new additions!

    Final Fantasy Tactics: Shishi Sensou

    Rated on November 06, 2007 by Madbeast8888

    Some faults in the port are not enough to drown this all-time classic with new additions!

    I am of the group of people that would place the original Final Fantasy Tactics on the pedestal of being one of the greatest Turn-Based Strategies of all time (I hope I got that genre name right). I ...

    Quaint little collection.

    Sega Genesis Collection

    Rated on October 19, 2007 by Madbeast8888

    Quaint little collection.

    If you are perusing the shelves of your local GameStop, or EB, and you are looking for a decent used purchase for you PSP, then this is certainly a great buy. As a "greatest hits" for the S...

    Great sequel!

    Heroes of Might and Magic V (Limited Edition DVD)

    Rated on October 19, 2007 by Madbeast8888

    Great sequel!

    For those of you whom are fans of this series, this is a must buy! The graphics are simply beautiful, while the game itself has only gotten better. There are now far more creatures to fight, create,...

    A perfect homage to the days of Contra and side-scrolling shooters alike!

    Metal Slug Anthology

    Rated on October 19, 2007 by Madbeast8888

    A perfect homage to the days of Contra and side-scrolling shooters alike!

    For those that do not know, the Metal Slug series was a great series in the arcades, and just as well on home consoles. The only problem is that in the arcades, you would end up spending your life sa...

    Dungeons & Dragons Tactics

    Rated on October 05, 2007 by Madbeast8888

    Only for die-hard battlefield strategy gamers!

    Fantasy Turn-Based Strategy games have long been a favorite genre of mine (ever since the days of Shining Force 1 & 2 on Sega Genesis). Naturally, for those of us who enjoy these types of games, ...
