    A first impressions review from an MMO vet.

    Guild Wars 2

    A first impressions review from an MMO vet.

    This is a review for new players, not fanboys who have been following the release since it entered alpha and know and knew everything about the game years before it was released. As with any MMO, it would be impossible ... Read Full Review

    Controls are garbage and the game is nearly unplayable.

    ArmA II: Operation Arrowhead

    Controls are garbage and the game is nearly unplayable.

    I originally purchased this game for the Day Z mod I had heard good things about. I kept hearing about how ArmA 2 was a realistic shooter and I have to say this is the least realistic shooter of this generation. ... Read Full Review

    12 years of hype, one decent game.

    Diablo III

    12 years of hype, one decent game.

    What can I say about Diablo 3? Its a good game. Its fun, its bloody, its addictive. The chief problem with D3 is the hype. What I got was D2 redux. Which is fine, D2 was a great game that has aged remarkably well. ... Read Full Review

    An incredible game that's best described as Joker doing a back-flip.

    Mass Effect 3

    An incredible game that's best described as Joker doing a back-flip.

    For those who don't know Joker is the pilot of the Normandy SR-1 and SR-2 and he has "brittle bone disease". This game is like watching him doing a backflip. You're amazed at what's going on in front of you, its unexpe... Read Full Review

    A review by a beta player and decade long veteran of MMOs for a game that's going to revolutionize the industry.

    Star Wars: The Old Republic

    A review by a beta player and decade long veteran of MMOs for a game that's going to revolutionize the industry.

    Before reviewing this game there's a few things that readers need to understand about the MMO industry to better clarify why this game deserves a nearly perfect score. The international MMO industry caps at about 18 mil... Read Full Review

    Fantastically fun game, but like every Bethesda title it runs like an open beta.

    The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim

    Fantastically fun game, but like every Bethesda title it runs like an open beta.

    Skyrim is certainly the best Bethesda title to come out in many years. Its more stable than the Fallout series, especially the late-term abortion New Vegas where you were all but guaranteed crashes every 15 minutes if y... Read Full Review

    Not for the faint of heart but an incredible adventure.

    Dark Souls

    Not for the faint of heart but an incredible adventure.

    To begin with, I'm a fan of this series. I was and am a die-hard multi-character veteran of Demons Souls so naturally I'm coming into Dark Souls with high expectations. Dark Souls is amazing. They took everything th... Read Full Review

    A good skeleton gives way to a laughable core.

    Deus Ex: Human Revolution

    A good skeleton gives way to a laughable core.

    After playing this game I have to admit I was thoroughly entertained, but not because the story was spectacular, or the gameplay compelling but just because how much fun I could have with an AI this ridiculously stupid. ... Read Full Review

    A review by a long time 40k player and a long time gamer.

    Warhammer 40,000: Space Marine

    A review by a long time 40k player and a long time gamer.

    The first thing I need to point out to people is that 7.5 doesn't mean a game is bad. It, in fact, means a game is good. Just not great, fantastic or ground breaking. I'll be breaking this review up into two parts. O... Read Full Review

    Like watching grass grow in a high security prison yard.

    EVE Online

    Like watching grass grow in a high security prison yard.

    This game is something of an acquired taste, and I can certainly understand where loyalists are coming from when they give the game a good recommendation. I simply cannot recommend this game. A game of EVEs size woul... Read Full Review

    A comparative analysis of this month's hottest title.

    Rift

    A comparative analysis of this month's hottest title.

    Is it like WoW? In some sense, yes. You'll be comfortable with the interface immediately, but its more customizable like something you'd need an addon for. Keybinding is the simplest I've seen yet. The way your abili... Read Full Review

    A detailed review of my favorite game.

    Mass Effect 2

    A detailed review of my favorite game.

    I've been gaming since the original NES and I've had several favorite games. Until Jan. 2010 I would have said without hesitation that Final Fantasy 7 was my favorite game. After I picked up Mass Effect 2 it immediatel... Read Full Review

    World of Warcraft: Cataclysm

    A review from a 6 year WoW raiding veteran.

    Just for my resume, I started playing WoW shortly after its release moving from FFXI. I've played every class and to-date I have every class at level capped and have raided in nearly every spec available. I've been a m... Read Full Review

    A review for people desperately trying to quit WoW.

    DC Universe Online

    A review for people desperately trying to quit WoW.

    First off, this isn't like WoW. Seeing a lot of reviews that say its like WoW and I can only be puzzled as to why they say that. Few key differences: You can't fight while flying, hanging on the ceiling, or while runn... Read Full Review
