    Red Dead Redemption

    The best videogame Western created

    Rockstar is no stranger to exploring iconic time periods and locations, having used the Grand Theft Auto series to explore the 80's, 90's and modern day in recreations of Miami, New York and California, and having helped... Read Full Review

    Fallout: New Vegas (Collector's Edition)

  • User Rating:8
    A well-crafted Fallout game marred by a lack of polish or considerable improvements over Fallout 3.

    Fallout: New Vegas

    A well-crafted Fallout game marred by a lack of polish or considerable improvements over Fallout 3.

    The Fallout series has a tendency to shift developers and go through wildly different design iterations. From the isometric view of the first few games made by Black Isle, to the 3D First/Third Person gameplay presented ... Read Full Review

    Demon's Souls

    A challenging dungeon crawler with a wealth of content and unique online integration that any hardcore gamer can love.

    Gamers often decry the lack of challenge in modern gaming compared to the games of old, with quicksaves, regenerating health, streamlined mechanics and difficulty selection. While one could argue it's a result of a growi... Read Full Review

    Deus Ex: Human Revolution

    A worthy successor to the Deus Ex franchise, with only minor problems holding back an otherwise incredible experience.

    Deus Ex: Human Revolution

    A worthy successor to the Deus Ex franchise, with only minor problems holding back an otherwise incredible experience.

    The Deus Ex series is one that may not have lent itself well to a traditional sequel. The first one is a beloved PC masterpiece that offered much in the way of choice and story, with some technical issues and graphical p... Read Full Review

    Alpha Protocol

    A well written RPG with some missing polish and incomplete feeling gameplay holding it down.

    In the games industry, there is a saying that goes "the difference between a good game and a great one is that extra 10%". In the case of Alpha Protocol, it's a game that has so much potential and talent behind it (in th... Read Full Review

    An epic finish to what is possibly gaming's most important Sci-Fi trilogy.

    Mass Effect 3

    An epic finish to what is possibly gaming's most important Sci-Fi trilogy.

    Trilogies can be tricky when it comes to entertainment. Rarely is the 3rd installment considered the best, and oftentimes it ends up being the black sheep of an otherwise stellar franchise. With Mass Effect 3, Bioware gi... Read Full Review

    Max Payne 3

    A worthy sequel that both fans of Max Payne and newcomers to the series can enjoy

    When last we saw Max Payne, it was 2003. This was before third person shooters like Resident Evil 4, Gears of War and Uncharted had changed the gaming world and evolved the shooter into what it was today. We also last sa... Read Full Review

    An epic follow up to Uncharted 2 that isn't quite as big a leap from before, but just as fun and polished.

    Uncharted 3: Drake's Deception

    An epic follow up to Uncharted 2 that isn't quite as big a leap from before, but just as fun and polished.

    In Nathan Drake's last adventure, Uncharted 2, his adventure started off with a bang. Nate was dangling off a cliff in a train with a bullet wound in his gut, before flashing back to a thrilling museum heist that kicked ... Read Full Review

    Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3

    A fun sequel that doesn't add much, but doesn't really have to.

    The Call of Duty series is a hot franchise in gaming, ever since its start in 2003 the series has been mainly World War II focused, but really hit the big time when the Modern Warfare took the stellar gameplay and brough... Read Full Review

    While not as ground breaking as Call of Duty 4, the fps action is just as addictive.

    Call of Duty: World at War

    While not as ground breaking as Call of Duty 4, the fps action is just as addictive.

    Call of Duty: World at War is the latest in the Call of Duty franchise, why it chooses to stay in WWII, I don't know. To be honest though, its not really a problem and helps set the tone for the grim narrative. You st... Read Full Review

    Has great potential, but falls just short of expectations.

    SOCOM: U.S. Navy SEALs Confrontation

    Has great potential, but falls just short of expectations.

    When I got this game, it wasn't what I was expecting, but to be honest I wasn't even expecting the game itself. As SOCOM's first foray into the next gen, there were high expectations for Confrontation (developed by Slant... Read Full Review

    Quite possibly the last really memorable Tony Hawk games.

    I love the Tony Hawk games. I love skateboarding. It's these things that ultimately compelled me to buy Tony Hawk's Underground 2. Taking off where THUG left, you play as your custom created avatar. Customization opti... Read Full Review

    A fun downloadable co-op romp that can be a bit lacking at times.

    Payday: The Heist

    A fun downloadable co-op romp that can be a bit lacking at times.

    Pros: Great soundtrack, balanced gameplay, great replay value, great co-op. Cons: Only 6 levels, AI leaves a lot to be desired, graphics look a bit dated, recycled mechanics. Taking a cue from popular heist movies ... Read Full Review

    A fantastic multiplayer experience brought down by polish issues and a disappointing campaign.

    Battlefield 3

    A fantastic multiplayer experience brought down by polish issues and a disappointing campaign.

    With EA's marketing campaign hyping up Battlefield 3 as a Call of Duty killer that rises "above and beyond the call", as well as a highly successful and critically acclaimed series of games behind them, you'd think DICE ... Read Full Review

    If you like Batman, comics, video games, fun or quality entertainment, you owe it to yourself to buy this game.

    As the sequel to the 2009 hit game, Batman: Arkham Asylum, this game had a lot to live up to with such success in becoming arguably the best licensed superhero game. Thanks to the talent of Rocksteady though, they've man... Read Full Review

    Grand Theft Auto IV

    GTA IV is a breathtaking experience people will be talking about for years to come.

    I remember when I first saw the trailer for it in April of 2007. It looked amazing, but I felt as if it could very well disappoint. Flash forward to modern day, and this game is everything and more. Niko Bellic, a Ser... Read Full Review

    Although many fans of the GTA series have often stated that Vice City is the best of the GTAIII series of games, I beg to differ. Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas is an amazingly immersive and large game, packed with the si... Read Full Review
