    Duke Nukem Forever

    There are plenty of problems, but it isn't an entirely unpleasant action ride as long as you know what to expect.

    Games that are in development for around a decade just about always fit into two categories. Either they are absolute masterpieces that used every second of those ten years to craft a classic title, or they fell behind t... Read Full Review

    Brink

    A hopeful start and interesting multiplayer isn't enough to save it from the idiotic AI and disconnected story.

    Brink has to be credited for doing something fairly different. The gameplay, somewhat reminiscent of the TimeSplitters series, tries to blend multiplayer and single player into a seamless experience. On paper it works, b... Read Full Review
