    Half-Life 2

    Half-Life 2 is not the greatest game ever made. It is, however, worth playing if you're a fan of the FPS.

    Half-Life 2 is considered by many people to be the greatest PC game - read "PC game", not "PC FPS" - ever released. After giving it two play-throughs I can easily say it is certainly not the product it's being hyped up ... Read Full Review

    Doom

    Not only is DOOM the grandaddy of the FPS, it is also one of the best, most intense games in the genre it pioneered.

    Though Wolfenstein 3D was technically the first first-person shooter to come to markets, there is no question that Doom was the game that made the FPS genre what it is today. But even today, in the land of intense 3D gr... Read Full Review

    Guitar Hero III: Legends of Rock

    Guitar Hero III has its quirks, but also its perks. In the end, it's as addictive as previous Guitar Hero entries.

    When I started playing Guitar Hero II, I almost fell in love with it. It was very difficult to get all the achievements (I still have six songs left to 5* on Expert), and was very satisfying in the end. When I heard ab... Read Full Review

    Loom

    Loom is a simple, satisfying game with an intriguing story, but it doesn't have enough length to keep you hooked.

    In 1990, LucasArts released Loom, a simple, short adventure game. I first played this in 1996 when I was 4 years old. Back them I could only get up to a certain point before I quit. I come back to this game 11 years l... Read Full Review

    Yaris starts out as a waste of time, then slowly becomes a more painful waste of time as the clock ticks on.

    Yaris

    Yaris starts out as a waste of time, then slowly becomes a more painful waste of time as the clock ticks on.

    Yaris is a simple advergame for Toyota's Yaris that's available for free on Xbox Live. I downloaded it for free achievement points and nothing more. What you get here is a bland racer/shooter that won't burn your money... Read Full Review

    Guitar Hero II (Game only)

    Guitar Hero II is an amazing experience that sucks you in and refuses to let go.

    Harmonix's Guitar Hero originated on the PS2 back in 2005/2006 and quickly gained attention, critical praise, and mention as one of the best games ever. Just one year later, Harmonix followed up with a sequel, Guitar He... Read Full Review

    Descent II

    When compared to its predecessor, Descent 2 has more improvements than shortcomings.

    When Descent came out for the PC in 1995, it wasn't bought off the shelves instantly, but it was well-received by critics and created a small but strong fanbase. Just one year later, Interplay followed up its 6 Degrees ... Read Full Review

    Descent

    Descent is a topnotch FPS which should not be missed.

    Back in 1995, Descent was the game that spawned the genre of Six Degrees of Freedom games, games that enabled the user to fly on all three axis rather than planting the user on the ground, forcing the user to utilize two... Read Full Review

    Dancing Stage Universe

    The DDR series may be old, but DDR Universe is still just as fun and challenging as the previous games.

    Dance Dance Revolution, as old as it is, is not only an arcade classic, it's almost an integration into popular culture. And it's easy to see why; DDR was the first exertainment game to come out and hit mainstream arcad... Read Full Review

    Sonic Heroes

    Heroes has interesting gameplay mechanics and offers some thrilling moments, but level design is rather poor.

    Sonic Heroes came out a long time ago (2004) and was the first Sonic game to be released on all three sixth generation systems. Which says a lot. In Sonic Heroes, you play as one of four different teams with three ch... Read Full Review

    Gears of War

    It's like playing through a really badass action movie.

    Gears of War is the flagship title for the Xbox 360. And it's easy to see why. It looks great. It sounds great. And it plays even better. I'd have to agree with Jeff's review with respect to the gameplay: it's gre... Read Full Review

    Yu-Gi-Oh! Duel Monsters 8: Hametsu no Daijashin

    Never have I put down a Yu-Gi-Oh game involving cards. Until now.

    One thing I will make clear about Reshef is that it is basically a rehash of Sacred Cards, which I thought was a fun little adventure to breeze through. But Sacred Cards was pretty fun. This isn't. Reshef of Destruc... Read Full Review

    LEGO Stunt Rally

    It's fun to build new tracks in Lego Stunt Rally, but the racing aspect of the game is extremely frustrating and buggy.

    The good: Fun to build new tracks; music is decent. The bad: Terrible racing portion, including terrible controls, graphics clipping, randomly difficult AI, and few customization offerings. Lego Stunt Rally can be ... Read Full Review
