    Forza Horizon

    Can this legitimately be called a Forza game? Yes and no.

    Forza Motorsport - Microsoft's answer to Sony's iconic racing sim series Gran Turismo, does a spin-off from its traditions of track based, purely-realistic driving in favor of an open-world adventure ...

    Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3

    Rated on November 19, 2011 by NicAgent

    Modern Warfare 3, despite its changes and improvements, finds itself as a rehash of previous Call of Duty games.

    Modern Warfare 3, or should I say MW2.5, is the finale of the Modern Warfare trilogy that has come to redefine the Call of Duty series from a simple WWII FPS to a billion-dollar innovative blockbuster...

    L.A. Noire is both a highly immersive take of 1947 Los Angeles police work as well as leaving you wanting more.

    Rockstar is, well, truly a rockstar when it comes to the big-name titles in video gaming. Although most famous for Grand Theft Auto III, its successors, and Grand Theft Auto IV, the company has since...

    DiRT 3

    Dirt 3 can be very fun to play, but it depends on what kind of racing game fan you are.

    The year is now 2011, and the Dirt series has finally seen its third installment. In building upon Dirt 2's success, you would expect a game to do what Dirt 2 did best in addition to new and exciting...

    Star Wars Episode I: Racer

    Rated on October 07, 2009 by NicAgent

    Nope... sucks. I know it's GameBoy Color, but the graphical limitations just aren't an excuse.

    Simply put, this game is a bland, top-down, 2D version of Star Wars Podracing, made famous by the 1999 film The Phantom Menace. Unfortunately, its limiations are too much, and don't provide much atmo...

    DiRT 2 delivers in the places its predecessor didn't: quality online racing with an expansive single-player tour.

    The original DiRT brought high-quality off-road racing two years ago. While it was fun to play, it just didn't have the online play people wanted. Now, up to 8 players can duke it out on collision-f...
