    Saints Row IV

    It's a Saint's Row Game....whaddaya expect? Friggin Shakespear???

    I'll never get folks who just CANNOT let this slide as no longer a GTA clone. If GTA was slowly slipping into insanity and dementia while on an over exuberant gangsta binge this would be GTA...but ...

    Some People like things Dumbed Down/Simplified.  I don't.  Not perfect but hardly a "fail"

    Total War: Rome II

    Some People like things Dumbed Down/Simplified. I don't. Not perfect but hardly a "fail"

    Oh Total War series. How I adore you. Let me count the ways... 1. In an era of most major releases being forced into the "FPS" genre. The Total War series has never really made a transition and...

    It's Not JA anymore than JA BIA was.  A cheaply made money grab with none of the challenge of the original JA.

    Jagged Alliance Online

    Rated on July 09, 2013 by Poodlejumper

    It's Not JA anymore than JA BIA was. A cheaply made money grab with none of the challenge of the original JA.

    I bought the 25$ game pack from steam hoping for a little nostalgic fun after seeing the advert for this. Touting itself as a JAgged Alliance game this free to play model cuts corners and dumbs down ...

    Tries to mash up city building and turn based strategy...falls short in both

    Omerta: City of Gangsters

    Rated on February 07, 2013 by Poodlejumper

    Tries to mash up city building and turn based strategy...falls short in both

    I like Kalypso...I make no beef with it. Tropico is so much fun and a hilarious world building game. It has character and is a challenge. So when I saw the graphically unimpressive but meld of city ...

    Really???  This is what Platform Gamers have been touting when they talk about DMC?  All flash, no substance!

    DmC: Devil May Cry

    Really??? This is what Platform Gamers have been touting when they talk about DMC? All flash, no substance!

    First DMC I've seen for the PC and played...I really don't want to say it but I'm not horribly impressed. I'm not disgusted at all mind you. I'm just underwhelmed at everything that I find wrong wit...

    It's no BG2 but it's nice to see Baldur's Gate back...even if it's a little lackluster in "Enhanced Edition"

    This game. This is the one that made me dream about how AWESOME video games would be in the future. I'm an old school PnP D&D fan. I've been gaming PnP since I was little...about the same time I ...

    XCOM: Enemy Unknown

    It's like meeting an old friend you haven't seen for 15 years.

    I'm an old fart for gamers. I went to undergrad some 15 years ago. Recently I bumped into an old friend from the old alma matter and the feeling I got was strangly similar to the one I got from play...

    Takes TW and adds rifles, railroads, coastal bombardment, and a better advancement tree.

    Total War: Shogun 2 - Fall of the Samurai

    Rated on March 26, 2012 by Poodlejumper

    Takes TW and adds rifles, railroads, coastal bombardment, and a better advancement tree.

    Remember how Empire/Napoleon didn't "exactly" catch rifles and the like into a perfect game. This is a better take on it some set 100 years later in the now familiar staging of Japan's history in a n...

    Amazing what gets called an RPG these days.

    Kingdoms of Amalur: Reckoning

    Rated on March 24, 2012 by Poodlejumper

    Amazing what gets called an RPG these days.

    Somehow somewhere RPGs got really dumbed down. Pretty sure it's the BioWare EA formula they've latched onto that this game seems to suck like a leech. I'm sure if you liked DA2 you'll like this... I...

    Well 12 years later and it feels like that latest Guns and Roses Album: Too late, wrong era, and not even that good.

    Duke Nukem Forever

    Rated on June 14, 2011 by Poodlejumper

    Well 12 years later and it feels like that latest Guns and Roses Album: Too late, wrong era, and not even that good.

    Folks...let's chat. I've been gaming awhile. Duke Nukem 1 and 2 were platform games from long ago...they were fun little scrollers from a simpler day...nothing overtly complex. Just a guy with a bad h...

    Brink

    Rated on May 12, 2011 by Poodlejumper

    Feels like it needs something more

    A rather fun game and with a huge amount of customization. It has eye catching appeal I will give it that. Like an attractive person you have watched from afar but once you get to know her/him you f...

    Great game that needed more meat to be worth it.

    Warhammer 40,000: Dawn of War II - Retribution

    Rated on May 03, 2011 by Poodlejumper

    Great game that needed more meat to be worth it.

    Really a lot of fun and the characters are quite 40K in all ways shapes and forms. The Orks in particular have some great quotes and Mr. Nailbrain is one of my personal faves... Some thoughts: ...

    Worth the money. Worth the wait. You want a game that you will get your money out of? Go for the Total War series. Best dollar per hour spend rate you've ever seen. The action is fast an furi...

    Rated on August 21, 2008 by Poodlejumper

    An interesting but dumbed down Dungeon Seige

    Space Siege is not a "horrible" game as so many here want to call it. A good deal of gamers are a little too quick to point out mediocrity as failure. It's not. It's just mediocrity. That means i...
