    Mass Effect

    another great rpg success from bioware

    Ever since playing Baldurs Gate 1 and 2 I have been such a fan of Bioware. With Mass Effect it goes without saying. The combat mechanics, storytelling, dialogue tree, branching storylines, nonlinear questing are all incl... Read Full Review

    The Orange Box

    this is godsend to the 360.

    The Orange Box rocks because: -There are three single player games -There are extra puzzle and multiplayer games Half-Life 2 is a major improvement to the FPS. The graphics rock, the environments are fully interacti... Read Full Review

    Metal Gear Solid 3: Subsistence (First Print Limited Edition)

    I got it!! I got it!!!

    I wasn't hoping on finding MGS3subsistence used at a local gamestop. Subsistence really makes this game more enjoyable with the added flexibility of the third person rotating camera. It makes it all the more immersive as... Read Full Review

    Syphon Filter: Logan's Shadow

    wow this game has havok physics!

    I think the best thing that makes this game even better is the high production quality. I mean, the gameplay in syphon filter is a standard spy/fps but it's boosted by all the next-gen graphical effects like a physics e... Read Full Review

    Halo 3

    the campaign revives much of the great gameplay of Halo 1 and features superior graphics and refined gameplay!

    I remember always preferring Halo's campaign to that of Halo 2 for the reason that the latter always seemed to drag you and spoonfeed the story. I was especially annoyed by how most of the environments in Halo 2 were eit... Read Full Review

    BioShock

    Meant to appease the casual gamer and the gamer bored with straightfoward fps.

    With all the hype regarding high production quality and good intentions to revolutionize the fps genre, it has been assumed that Bioshock would rise to greatness. i don't understand, then, why there's such a huge sigh of... Read Full Review

    Chrono Cross (PSOne Books)

    distinctive and successful as its own.

    Well sadly I never played Chrono Trigger but from what I've researched it shouldn't be categorized in the same realm as Chrono Cross gameplay wise. The stories do interlock, and while Chrono Cross does find alot of its s... Read Full Review

    Fable consists of mindless keyboard mashing and bashing.

    When I played this game it was fun at first because i got to train my character and customize how he looks and who he has relationships with and what magic and weapons he got to use, so i think this is more like an actio... Read Full Review

    Command & Conquer 3: Tiberium Wars

    Command & Conquer 3 manages to be a fully functional console RTS and even surpasses that by adding more frosting to the already scrumptous dolce de leche of an RTS. The main reason this game succeeds is because contr... Read Full Review

    Seiken Densetsu: Heroes of Mana

    Stupid structure really destroys the RTS in this game

    I think there's a point where i definitely draw the line as to how much frustration i can tolerate from a game's flaws. there's a lot in heroes of mana really obvious from the beginnning that you play it. The main flaws ... Read Full Review

    farcry pc and farcry xbox are similar games with subtle differences that would put off some people

    Farcry xbox does all the right things and has the backbone of the pc game, but the control scheme just doesnt cut it, the mouse and keyboard much smoother. the xbox version seems more toned down, even though the island l... Read Full Review

    A rare jewel to find. But if you do, then bless you.

    yggdra union is far from a cookie cutter game. this wins on its originality of thought, direction, story, comedy. the gameplay is not complicated, I dont know what the deal is with the perception of the game featuring a... Read Full Review

    this game is like System Shock 2 in both linearity and content.

    while playing this I played System Shock 2 simultaneously and noted that HalfLife is by far more successful of the two, ignoring the commercial success or populairity of those games. HalfLife while showing its age in tis... Read Full Review

    It is great at first but then the stages get boring after a while
