    A game almost in a class of it own.

    Heavy Rain

    Rated on September 09, 2010 by Minion123

    A game almost in a class of it own.

    Heavy Rain is a game that was wrapped in much secrecy up to its debut. It was mysterious, beautiful, and seemed to play a lot differently than 99% of other games out there. I had my doubts about this ...

    As close as you can get to Golden Eye without an N64

    James Bond 007: NightFire (Platinum)

    Rated on February 01, 2010 by Minion123

    As close as you can get to Golden Eye without an N64

    Story: The Story in this game is typical James Bond faire. He goes around the world saving the day and getting all the women. If you really want to know more you should just play the game. Graphics...

    One of the best games of all time.

    Sid Meier's Civilization III

    Rated on February 01, 2010 by Minion123

    One of the best games of all time.

    Civilization III is one of those games in a series that really highlights everything that people love about it. Graphics: Good for its time, although time has not been so good to it in return. But ...

    A proper $20 expansion for some reason inflated into a $60 game.

    Halo 3: ODST

    Rated on February 01, 2010 by Minion123

    A proper $20 expansion for some reason inflated into a $60 game.

    Usually price shouldn't be a major factor when reviewing the content of a game. But when you see the glaringly bare bones entertainment it offers when it was at launch a $60 game is somewhat ridiculou...

    Very Fun, But lacking replayability.

    Assassin's Creed II

    Rated on February 01, 2010 by Minion123

    Very Fun, But lacking replayability.

    I have never really played Assassins Creed 1, so I cannot speak on improvements or detriments in relation to the first one, however I can tell you how this game stands to someone with no prior objecti...

    Why Guitar Hero was so good in the beginning. A return to the roots so to speak.

    DJ Hero

    Rated on February 01, 2010 by Minion123

    Why Guitar Hero was so good in the beginning. A return to the roots so to speak.

    I have been an avid Guitar Hero/Rockband fan since Guitar Hero 1. Although more recent titles have felt more like lame cash ins, and some titles seem to go the Madden way of keeping gameplay basically...

    Seemingly a mash of a bunch of different games, with no real identity of its own.

    Darksiders

    Rated on February 01, 2010 by Minion123

    Seemingly a mash of a bunch of different games, with no real identity of its own.

    I remember watching the commercials for this game awhile ago and thought the idea of a GoW style game set in modern times to be different and exciting. However the game was not exactly what I was expe...

    The way a Star Wars Flight sim should be done.

    Star Wars: X-Wing vs. TIE Fighter

    Rated on February 01, 2010 by Minion123

    The way a Star Wars Flight sim should be done.

    Star Wars: X-wing vs TIE fighter didn't seem to get a lot of great reviews by this site or game mags at the time. But sometimes I have to write a review to tip the balance a bit and give a good honest...

    A good title to pick up for XBLA

    Alien Hominid HD

    Rated on February 01, 2010 by Minion123

    A good title to pick up for XBLA

    Behemoth is an interesting studio, and like to have their own artistic and comedic flare prevalent in their games. Alien Hominid is the game which put this new studio into the spotlight, at least in m...

    Castle Crashers

    Rated on February 01, 2010 by Minion123

    Brings back a lot of memories, and creates some new ones

    This game really surprised the hell out of me. I used to be a big fan of Newgrounds when I was a bit younger, watching all the user submitted flash animations. Most of which were questionable in quali...

    A step in the right direction

    Borderlands

    Rated on February 01, 2010 by Minion123

    A step in the right direction

    Borderlands, to me, represents something I've watered my mouth over for years, an awesome MMOFPS/FPSRPG. Sure there are a couple games before that have come under the MMOFPS title, Planetside being th...

    REVIEW EDIT: I will change my score from a 7.0 to an 8.0. But not anything that I originally said about the game on here because I will have to eat my words a bit. After a lot more play time with thi...

    A decent game, that's about it

    Uncharted 2: Among Thieves

    Rated on February 01, 2010 by Minion123

    A decent game, that's about it

    A 7.0 might seem real low to a lot of fans of this game. in my mind, a 7.0 means it was enough to grab my attention and keep me mildly entertained, but not hooked or sold. Story: Meh, to be honest ...

    Deadly Tide

    Rated on February 01, 2010 by Minion123

    A really fun game to play, even today!

    This is one of the first games I bought when I got my own PC and as a kid I was blown away by this game. I remember playing it for weeks every day after school. Nostalgia aside, I thought to give this...

    Takes a different turn than the other Far Crys. For better or for worse.

    Far Cry 2

    Rated on December 21, 2008 by Minion123

    Takes a different turn than the other Far Crys. For better or for worse.

    Far Cry is a series that I have been in love with since the first one. The original Far Cry for the PC as well as Instincts for the Xbox were both great games and The main character Jack Carver as wel...

    GH3 fans will be letdown. Plus Rockband is so much better.

    Guitar Hero World Tour

    Rated on December 21, 2008 by Minion123

    GH3 fans will be letdown. Plus Rockband is so much better.

    I'll get right down to the nitty gritty, GH: WT is just plain awful. I say this because as an avid GH3 fan this game simply did not live up to the previous game in terms of song selection, online play...
