Viking: Battle for Asgard
Lots to kill, but that is about it. Not bad, not great either
Vikings along with Ninjas, Soldiers, Fighters, and Mages are staples of video gaming. Not all games are created equal, some are better than others, and some are just passable games. Viking Battle ...
Not just another Sandbox game, inFamous gets it mostly right.
Sandbox games have been all the rage since GTA3 came about in the early 2000's. Often imitated, never fully replicated, and usually a big hit or a tremendous miss. inFamous is a different kind of s...
Duke Nukem Forever
The King has returned...but leaves a lot to be desired. Still, not a bad game.
When Duke Nukem Forever was announced it was 1997, for some, a lifetime has passed since then and its release. The game has been eagerly anticipated and people wondered if it could deliver. Though the...
Batman: Arkham Asylum
Finally, someone gets a Batman game right.
If only all games based on established movies/comics could be this good. Batman: Arkham Asylum takes a story written by one of the writers of the comics and puts it into video game format. Granted...
A solid game that sometimes plays itself.
LA Noire takes you back to 1947 Los Angeles, a magical time right after World War 2 when the sky seemed the limit. You play as Cole Phelps, an ambitious police officer eager to rise in the ranks. The ...
Plants vs. Zombies
Extremely fun, highly addictive, and just plain great to play.
Plants Vs Zombies (PVZ) is a tower defense game in which you must use an interesting variety of plants to fend off a wave of brain-hungry zombies. The premise might sound silly and well...it is, the g...
Red Dead Redemption
Simply put-a masterpiece.
Red Dead Redemption utilizes the now-familiar sandbox style of gameplay. Though this is commonplace these days, RDR takes it to a whole new level. This game has much in common with the Grand Theft Aut...
The successor to Bioshock improves upon the first and keeps intact all the things that made it great-a worthy follow up
The original Bioshock was a spectacular game on many different levels. It had an amazing atmosphere, compelling story, gorgeous graphics, and it did not sacrifice gameplay for any of it. Bioshock is a...
Crackdown is a solid game, not without its problems, but a good start.
Ever want to have super powers and fight criminals? Crackdown lets you do it in a very interesting way. You are an agent working for the Agency, which is an amalgamation of law enforcement agencie...
Mass Effect 2
Mass Effect 2 is an amazing game and a worthy successor-too bad Bioware fixed many things that were not broken.
I have eagerly awaited ME2 since finishing the very first Mass Effect which was one of the greatest games I have ever played. Though it had some flaws, the overwhelming successes of a great story, spo...
X-COM: Enemy Unknown
Strategy done right, even after 14 plus years X-Com holds up extremely well and still sets the standard for strategy.
If I were to go into detail about this game it would take up most of GS's server space. Aliens are invading Earth, you must stop them. As the commander of X-Com you are in charge of building bases...
Dragon Age: Origins
Dragon Age Origins is an extremely solid, entertaining, and ridiculously addictive game.
Dragon Age Origins (DAO) had quite a bit of hype leading up to it's release. It seemed like a promising title of a possible new franchise. The game was created by the awesome Bioware who gave us the e...
Rise of the Argonauts
Rise of the Argonauts is short and misses the mark in places, but is a good game that is fun to play.
Games and Mythology can work very well together, look at the God of War series, both games are two of the best ever made. Rise of the Argonauts is a game based on Greek Mythology and though it is not ...
More like Dynasty Warriors Lite-N3 has good ideas, but fails to pull them off making it just average.
Ninety Nine Nights or N3 for short has a lot of good ideas but fails to execute them. This is rather unfortunate because the game is entertaining and had these ideas worked, the game would've been not...
The Tenchu series makes its appearance on the Xbox 360. It takes the series forward, but only by a few steps.
The Tenchu Series was one of the first games to use the stealth element and do so well. The series has had its problems: camera issues and the fighting could be better, but every new entry has taken t...
Saints Row 2 (Collector's Edition)
Saint's Row 2 improves on the first game while keeping in place the mechanics that worked well.
Saint's Row was compared to GTA as they incorporate many of the same elements-to call the series a GTA rip-off could be true in some instances, but Saint's Row 2 does much of what GTA IV did not. Sain...
Want hordes of loyal followers? Want to destroy and pillage? Want to live you evil fantasies? Overlord is for you.
Overlord is an interesting game in that you rely upon others to do your dirty work. That is not to say you cannot do it yourself, but the game is centered around your variety of minions and using them...
Fable 2 improves on every shortcoming of it's predecessor and delivers a high quality gaming experience.
The original Fable was incredibly fun, innovative, interesting, and an all around great game. It had several flaws though-the combat was clunky, the system in which your character aged was terrible, a...
Ninja Gaiden II
Pretentious, overhyped, cheap, frustrating...this game is garbage
Ninja Gaiden Black was the hardest game I ever played; it was frustrating at points, but very satisfying and had some of the best action you will find in any game. Ninja Gaiden 2 promised to keep the ...
The Last Remnant
This game is entertaining, but incredibly flawed.
Last Remnant puts a small twist on the time-honored (i.e. cliched) RPG staple. Boy must save female protagonist, has power he does not realize, and despite not having a lick of training before this da...
One of the best RPG's in a long time-a true joy to play.
RPG's are fun, so are 3rd person shooters-but could they both exist in the same place at the same time? If they are Mass Effect the answer is yes. This is a finely crafted game that stands out in almo...
Guitar Hero World Tour
Guitar Hero ups the ante with multiple instruments and deeper creation options.
Guitar Hero was the beginning of a new wave in video gaming, it had widespread appeal that reached all divisions of hardcore gamers and helped to usher in the idea of casual gaming. The games got bett...
Left 4 Dead
Probably one of the finest, if not the best multiplayer FPS on the market.
Left 4 Dead has received rave reviews and rightfully so, it is a high quality game that is just plain fun. It is one of the best multiplayer games there is right now and it is almost guaranteed fun to...
This is a truly great game from start to finish.
The highly anticipated Fallout 3 certainly delivered, this game is of the highest quality and gets it almost completely right. Though it has a few flaws, this is one of the best games put out and is a...
Gears of War 2
Gears 2 is back in a big way and proves "If it ain't broken, don't fix it."
Gears of War 2 was highly hyped in print and electronic media and it did not disappoint. Gears 2 delivers on several levels in that the single player campaign is deeper, the control is tight as ever, ...
God of War II
If it isn't broken, don't fix it. Thankfully the people that made this game realized that.
The first time I played God of War I was instantly hooked and from start to finish revelled in an amazingly well crafted game. God of War 2 follows suit-it keeps enough of the original to make it soli...
Grand Theft Auto IV
The latest installment in the GTA series gets a lot right, but not everything. All in all, a good game.
Ever since GTA III I have been a fan of the series. It took sandbox gameplay to the next level and each entry into the series brought something new. The series is famous for great gameplay, humor, and...
Condemned 2 improves on the first one, but at a major expense...
After playing Condemned: Criminal Origins, I really wanted to play the sequel. I found the first one to be one of the most suspenseful and tense games I have ever played. I loved not knowing what was ...
Condemned: Criminal Origins
This game will mess with your head-needless to say, it's pretty good and very enjoyable.
Games come in alot of varieties, some you just play and that's it. Some you experience, you actually feel the game-Condemned: Criminal Origins is one of them. It by no means is the best game ever, it ...
Not just another FPS, Bioshock raises questions about morality, bioethics, and totalitaranism-and makes it fun.
Bioshock was another game that had alot of hype surrounding it, as is the case, games like this are often a big hit or big miss. Bioshock is a huge it, it is incredibly deep, intriguing, interesting, ...
The Halo trilogy comes to an end with a stellar, albeit short game.
This game had alot of hype surrounding it, afterall, Halo is one of the most successful franchises to come down the road. Halo 3 continues the standard of excellence with a solid game with awesome mul...
The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion
One of the most detailed, innovative, engrossing, fun games. It ranks with the best RPG's ever.
After playing the Elder Scrolls III: Morrowind Game of the Year Edition, I was delighted to find out Elder Scrolls IV was coming out. The game was hyped to be big, and it did not dissappoint. It is ha...
Ever want to slaughter endless hordes of zombies in a shopping mall? Here is your chance.
As a fan of all things George Romero (though the game carries a disclaimer that it is not ripping off Dawn of the Dead-which was shot 15 minutes away from where I live) I got terribly excited when I s...
In the style of GTA, Saints Row ups the ante with a more enriching and detailed game.
Though many may be quick to call this a GTA Clone, and it could indeed be considered that. Saints Row takes the sandbox style of gameplay of GTA and makes it a little bit deeper. There is more variety...
Final Fantasy VII
Probably one of the greatest games ever, maybe the best.
Masterpiece, plain and simple. This is what an RPG should be, great control, great options, and a story that literally brings you into the game. You don't just play FFVII, you experience it. We can al...
Ninja Gaiden Black
Probably the hardest video game I have ever played, but it is one awesome game.
For those of us that played the orginal Ninja Gaidens on the NES, we all knew they were very tough, very cool, and had awesome cinema scenes which were new for it's time. Ninja Gaiden has been reborn ...
Rockstar does it again with another shocking sequel to an already shocking game. Manhunt 2 has it's ups and downs.
The first Manhunt was awesome, it took gaming in a new direction. It was a solid game with great dynamics and an engaging story. Manhunt 2 goes in a different direction storywise, and is good, but not...
Gears of War
Probably the greatest game I have played thus far in 26 years of gaming.
You have read the reviews, you have seen the screen shots, but none of them do this game justice. To fully understand how great this game is, you must play it, and you will not be dissappointed. T...
