Assault Heroes 2
Assault Heroes takes a stride forward in level design and length, but it's way too dark and a few levels pinch the fun.
Assault Heroes is one of the bright spots on XBLA. It's essentially an old-school shooter with snazzy graphics, delightful weaponry, some on-foot sections, and a well-paced, challenging campaign that ...
Condemned 2 isn't a fitting successor to one of the scariest games ever made. Nor is it a competent shooter, even though it wants to be at times. It's not all bad. It's just not very good, either...
Omega Five is the Coors Light of shmups. Great taste, and way, way less filling.
To keep things short and sweet, Omega Five is a great game. It looks divine, controls adequately, and it throws enough enemies at you to make sure that you'll never forget its shmup roots. The pro...
Unbalanced gameplay and quite possibly the worst friendly AI in gaming history sinks Undertow.
A word to the wise: If you're planning on buying Undertow with the intention of playing single-player, save yourself time and grief and just wipe your rear end with ten dollars instead. You may be te...
Ultimate Mortal Kombat 3
Another fighting game succumbs to the horror of the 360 d-pad.
Instead of getting all flowery and technical on you, and discussing the merits of Mortal Kombat as a fighting series, I'll keep this simple: Ultimate Mortal Kombat 3 is probably the best entry in the ...
The Lord of the Rings, The Battle for Middle-earth II
Daft coding makes this ring not worth finding.
Let's get one thing out of the way: Real-time strategy games can be done successfully on a console, and Middle-earth proves it. Past attempts to make a controller bring the intricate precision and nea...
Hell has never looked so nice.
Instead of rambling on about the technical aspects of Doom 3, I'd rather give you some insight into the feelings it evokes while playing the game. For better or worse, Doom 3 stays true to its roots a...
Perfect Dark Zero
PD0 breaks many conventions of the genre and also introduces us to the next generation, although in a subtle way.
Didn't Kermit the Frog say it isn't easy being green? Well, in the world of gaming, it isn't easy being Rare either. They've got an entire legion of pissed off Nintendo fans who feel Rare abandoned th...
Oddworld Stranger's Wrath
In a time where developers are all too content to bring out uninspired sequels, Stranger is like a breath of fresh air.
When the original Oddworld came out for the Playstation, the game was lauded for its sharp visuals, slick production values and old school gameplay. The original games played similar to forgotten clas...
Not only is it a possible Game of the Year contender, it's also one of the finest games ever made.
The Resident Evil series has had its share of ups and downs over the years. The original pioneered a new era for fusing shock tactics, visceral thrills and gaming. Over the years, Capcom (in tradition...
Metroid Prime 2: Echoes
At least we won't accuse Nintendo and Retro of false advertising.
When Nintendo released Metroid Prime, it became a testament to the belief that indeed a good game can be made in the transition from 2D to 3D. It managed to retain everything that made the series popu...
