    Wet

    Rated on October 06, 2009 by Matadore

    For all the time that was spent on the creation of this game, Wet sure is stale and dry.

    Wet has been in development for who knows how many years. It was a game I thought might be worth the wait. Unfortunately, I was wrong. It is truly a shame too... there can never be enough games starri...

    Star Wars: The Force Unleashed

    Rated on June 03, 2009 by Matadore

    A truly new Star Wars experience is Unleashed… and is it ever strong in the Force.

    After having this game for a little over 3/4 of a year, I think I've thoroughly explored every nook and cranny of The Force Unleashed. And I must say, for any Star Wars or action/adventure game fan, T...

    RacePro

    Rated on March 03, 2009 by Matadore

    Atari hypes up another game that falls flat… we should know better by now.

    Atari/SimBin collaborated on what appeared to be a racing sim that would challenge previous racing titles such as FORZA 2 and GRID. However, many people have been fooled by the Atari brand in the past...

    Mortal Kombat vs. DC Universe

    Putting comic book heroes and villains in a MK game doesn't make it any better. In fact, MK vs. DC takes some steps back

    Scorpion vs DeathStroke… Sub-Zero vs Batman… yeah, seems like it might work in a very unusual way. However, after playing it for about 3 hours, you'll find yourself quite bored with this shallow hybri...

    Although short and Matt Damon-less, The Bourne Conspiracy brings the intensity of Jason Bourne to the 360.

    Robert Ludlum's The Bourne Conspiracy

    Rated on July 01, 2008 by Matadore

    Although short and Matt Damon-less, The Bourne Conspiracy brings the intensity of Jason Bourne to the 360.

    The Bourne Conspiracy is an excellent action game that revolves around events prior to and during The Bourne Identity. You are (obviously) Jason Bourne, assassin-turned-amnesiac. And as Jason Bourne, ...

    Two Worlds

    Rated on September 24, 2007 by Matadore

    Two Worlds is a sad rip-off of many recent and more substantial RPGs. Quite pathetic, really…

    First of all, I’m a little tired of these so-called RPG “fans” (more like fanboys) saying that if you don’t like such-and-such RPG, then you are obviously not an RPG fan. There are countless RPGs out ...

    Transformers: The Game may have some rough spots, but it is a fun adventure... while it lasts.

    Ever since I knew the movie was coming out, I was looking forward to seeing what Transformers would be like in the 21st century. And since the game came out ahead of the movie, I decided I'd check it ...

    From Software left off a few "Z"s in the title of this so-so installment of the Tenchu series.

    Since 1998, wanna-be couch ninjas rejoiced in the stealthy action of the Tenchu series… ok, they possibly rejoiced every now and then. Sometimes, they wanted to have a katana to end certain Tenchu ver...

    A huge roster of Kombatants tries to cover up mindless button-mashing in this final MK romp.

    MK: Armageddon pits all of MKs fighters against each other in a (seemingly) final Mortal Kombat free-for-all. With 60+ Kombatants to choose from, you might say that every Mortal Kombat’s fan dream has...

    Too many half-naked men, soap-opera storyline, and horrible control scheme counts this one out before it hits the ring.

    I've never been a big fan of wrestling. Although playing Pro Wrestling (NES) was kinda fun back in the day, and kinda funny now, wrestling games have gone from mediocre to disgustingly bad. Over the y...

    Next-gen Marvel heroes have never looked so… Pre-gen.

    With the questionable success of X-Men Legends I & II, it was inevitable that another game like it would appear on next-gen consoles. In this case, it was in the form of Marvel: Ultimate Alliance....

    Atari crashes and burns again in this ambitious, yet unpolished, “racing” game.

    Test Drive Unlimited’s title is missing a word. It should read “Test Drive Unlimited Frustration”. Everything else in the game has its limits. But once you press “Play Game” on the XBOX 360 Dashboard,...

    Rumble Roses XX may leave little to the imaginiation, but its replay value is refreshing and underappreciated.

    I'll be the first to say that Rumble Roses XX (RRXX) has its share of problems. But underneath all that, there's a game that becomes addicting to play... and its not just to oogle the excessively ster...
