    Only enjoyable if you mute the entire population or only run premade groups. Don't waste your time.

    Dota 2

    Only enjoyable if you mute the entire population or only run premade groups. Don't waste your time.

    I played the beta a while back and I have to say this game is terrible. Not because I'm a fan of another MOBA and think there are better options, but because the game is a cesspool in terms of other players. If you are... Read Full Review

    While good overall, the finale does not live up to it's predecessors.

    Mass Effect 3

    While good overall, the finale does not live up to it's predecessors.

    I'll preface by saying I am a very big Mass Effect fan. I bought an XBox360 way back in '07 (before the PC version was announced) just to play the original. I thoroughly enjoyed both previous games having played ME1 to... Read Full Review

    Immersive, great story and ending, good gameplay.  One of the few games that lives up to the hype.

    BioShock Infinite

    Immersive, great story and ending, good gameplay. One of the few games that lives up to the hype.

    First off this review will be spoiler-free so don't worry. Second I'll preface by saying the original Bioshock was one of those games I couldn't get into despite multiple attempts, just never got invested in the narrati... Read Full Review

    As a mostly PC gamer I have to say I am very impressed with this game. Very enjoyable.

    Halo 4 (Wireless Controller Bundle)

    As a mostly PC gamer I have to say I am very impressed with this game. Very enjoyable.

    I'll preface by saying I am almost exclusively a PC gamer, and I still really enjoyed this game. I couldn't tell you the last time I have played a Halo game, except for a few multiplayer matches at a friends house (it w... Read Full Review

    While the main character is not as interesting as Ezio, there are some great improvements over previous games.

    Assassin's Creed III

    While the main character is not as interesting as Ezio, there are some great improvements over previous games.

    I'll preface by saying I am a big Assassin's Creed fan and have played all the previous installments. Assassin's Creed 3 is a great game and has really moved the series forward in terms of mechanics and gameplay in many... Read Full Review

    Manages to live up to the greatness of it's predecessors.

    Max Payne 3

    Manages to live up to the greatness of it's predecessors.

    I'll start of by saying when I heard R* was taking over the Max Payne license I was both excited and extremely disappointed. Excited because I played the first two games a decade ago and they are still two of my favorit... Read Full Review

    A great game that adds much needed improvements to the MMO experience, but still suffers from it's own issues.

    Guild Wars 2

    A great game that adds much needed improvements to the MMO experience, but still suffers from it's own issues.

    After 300+ hours in GW2 I feel I have the required experience to effectively review this game. GW2 makes a number of huge improvements in the MMORPG genre, but also has a number of issues as well. Overall I think the g... Read Full Review

    One of very few open-world games that have kept me interested.

    The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim

    One of very few open-world games that have kept me interested.

    I am not a fan of open-world games. I think Gabe on Penny Arcade summed it up nicely for me - when presented with a game like Fallout 3 or Oblivion or Guerrilla where I can do just about anything I usually end up doing ... Read Full Review

    A good game that suffers from not living up to the expectations of it's predecessor.

    Crysis 2

    A good game that suffers from not living up to the expectations of it's predecessor.

    I'll preface by saying I quite enjoyed both Crysis and Warhead a few years back when I got some new hardware and could push it to the high settings. Similarly, with Crysis 2 I just got some new hardware and wanted to pu... Read Full Review

    Overall this is a great game, but some additions/changes don't work as well as they should.

    Assassin's Creed: Revelations

    Overall this is a great game, but some additions/changes don't work as well as they should.

    Assassin's Creed is one of the best series this generations IMO. I have really enjoyed all the games, including this one. I played Brotherhood for quite some time last year with the multiplayer component. Revelations ... Read Full Review

    Bastion

    This may be the best indie game I have ever played.

    I was planning to pick up a new indie game on Steam recently and it was down to Bastion or From Dust. I am very glad I chose Bastion. This is the best indie game I have played, there are a couple that are close, but Ba... Read Full Review

    Good ideas, but lots of execution blunders.

    Hydrophobia Prophecy

    Good ideas, but lots of execution blunders.

    Picked this one up on the Steam Summer Sale this year. I was interested when it came out on the 360 a while back and when they releases it on the PC and said they fixed a lot of the problems I was sold. Only problem is... Read Full Review

    A fresh take on tower defense that is just plain fun.

    Anomaly: Warzone Earth

    A fresh take on tower defense that is just plain fun.

    Picked this up on the recent Steam sale, but I had been wanting to play it since downloading the demo a few months ago. This is a great game, one of the best indi games out there in my opinion, right up there with Torch... Read Full Review

    Pretty much everything at 85 has been turned into a weeks long grind.

    World of Warcraft: Cataclysm

    Pretty much everything at 85 has been turned into a weeks long grind.

    If you have dropped WoW and are thinking of coming back, don't is all i can tell you. You will be disappointed. I put off buying Cataclysm until about a month ago when I finally gave in, not worth it at all in my opini... Read Full Review

    Rift

    High concept that isn't quit reached.

    I've played half a dozen MMOs over the years starting with Anarchy Online and ending with WoW. Having kicked the WoW habit a few months ago I thought I would give this one a try. I will admit Rift is a good game, the n... Read Full Review

    Bioware got some changes right and some wrong in this sequel.

    Dragon Age II

    Bioware got some changes right and some wrong in this sequel.

    I'll preface by saying I didn't enjoy the first DA. I got maybe 2/3 through it before the boring combat, drab visuals, and annoying companions got to me. That said I understand most people enjoyed the original quite a ... Read Full Review

    Even better than the first installment.

    Dead Space 2

    Even better than the first installment.

    I played the original back when it first came out and it is one of my top 10 favorite games of all time. The pinnacle of survival horror at the time. In my opinion Dead Space 2 is even better than the first. The sto... Read Full Review

    Good (but slightly recycled) singleplayer campaign, ridiculously fun multiplayer.

    Assassin's Creed: Brotherhood (Auditore Edition)

    Good (but slightly recycled) singleplayer campaign, ridiculously fun multiplayer.

    Well, for this review I'm going to split up the singleplayer and multiplayer components since I think they deserve to be considered separately. Overall this is a great game with a few flaws, but what easily makes it the... Read Full Review

    Great adventure game, few minor problems, but definitely worth playing.

    Enslaved: Odyssey to the West

    Great adventure game, few minor problems, but definitely worth playing.

    To me this game reminds me a lot of PoP from 2008. There is a lot of similarity in terms of basic combat and platforming. And to me that is a good thing. I really enjoyed the game, had been itching for a good acti... Read Full Review

    Fine console game, terrible PC port.

    Red Faction: Guerrilla

    Fine console game, terrible PC port.

    After picking this up on Steam on the sale weekend I figured it would be worth the $5 just to give it a shot. I got my 5 bucks or so worth, but would not have at the normal price of $20. I'm really getting tired of half... Read Full Review

    Very enjoyable action RPG for a great price.

    Well last week I was hunting around Steam for something to play and picked up both Torchlight and Fallout 3 to hold me over until Alpha Protocol. Turns out I should have just saved myself $30 bucks and stuck with Torchl... Read Full Review

    Dragon Age: Origins (Collector's Edition)

    Extremely over-hyped, reasonably good game.

    There is not a lot I want to say in this review. I'll preface by saying I played both of the KotOR games as well as NWN and feel... unimpressed to tell you the truth. The good - voice acting, fully scripted conversat... Read Full Review

    Flaws do their best to bring down this genuinely enjoyable game.

    Borderlands is one of those games that is fairly original and genuinely enjoyable, but it's numerous flaws scream rushed dev cycle. I really wanted to give this game a 8.5 - 9, and if I was going just by the gameplay I t... Read Full Review

    Crysis Warhead

    Dead Space

    Great story and atmousphere, cool combat mechanic.

    Been debating how to best describe this game since beating it. I think the best description I can give is that it didn't disappoint me in the slightest, but it also didn't surpass any of my expectations either. Over... Read Full Review

    Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare

    Amazing single player campaign. Short, but the story was well thought out, the missions well designed and the enemies had good AI. I played through on Hardened my first try and it was a genuine challenge, but not frust... Read Full Review

    Disjointed story, some areas of bad translation, gameplay is entertaining for the most part.

    Trusty Bell: Chopin no Yume

    Disjointed story, some areas of bad translation, gameplay is entertaining for the most part.

    My main grip after playing 2/3 of the game is the disjointed story. A lot of conclusions the characters make seem to have no basis in information that is presented to the player and characters and situations are introdu... Read Full Review

    Sins of a Solar Empire

    Ambitious, but ultimately unfulfilling.

    Interesting concept, poor implementation. My biggest gripe is how long it takes to do anything in combat. You can grow a beard in the time it takes a fleet battle to to run its course. Some other annoyances are the te... Read Full Review
