Vigilante 8 with Zombies Twisted Metal Z Carmageddon 4 Blood Drive is the latest attempt to resurrect the once titanic genre of car combat, with the added zest of zombies! Yeah, this isn't really a new thing or an origin... Read Full Review1 of 1 users found the following review helpful
Ultra-Viloent, highly stylized, delightfully offensive. It's worth having around for those bad days when you need it.
It's a mad, mad, mad, mad, mad world. Sorry, I felt obligated to do that. My love of awful jokes made me do it. Welcome to Madworld. The focus of Madworld is a gameshow called "DeathWatch". A large, metropolitan c... Read Full Review1 of 1 users found the following review helpful
The cheesy Grindhouse style, classic railed shooter action, and extra enhancements make this a must have for PS3 owners
House of the Dead: Overkill Extended Cut is the PS3 port of the arcade token-taker turned Wii game with some added bonuses to fill out the Blu-Ray. The "Extended Cut" for the Playstation 3 features new levels, added leng... Read Full Review0 of 0 users found the following review helpful
Has the absence of more Carmageddon games left you feeling empty inside? Targem's title will easily fill that emptiness.
A Large Hadron Collider mysteriously explodes and the UN declares the ruins of the city a disaster area, off limits to the world. The official statement was that there were no survivors, but independent and largely unsub... Read Full Review0 of 0 users found the following review helpful
Those among you with a penchant for B-Movies will find enough to enjoy in this game's blood drenched drenched innards.
In keeping with the running trend of resurrecting old franchises to give them a "next-gen" make-over and hopefully tap into the nostalgia of those who played the original, Namco has reissued Splatterhouse. This return to... Read Full Review0 of 0 users found the following review helpful
The addition of an open world to the Burnout franchise makes this a must buy for racing fans looking for something great
I prefaced my Flatout review by saying that the demolition racing genre was dead. I simply didn't enjoy that game, at all. Well, as Tarantino says in Four Rooms: "The less a man makes declarative statements the less like... Read Full Review0 of 0 users found the following review helpful
This open-world romp through Empire City has an incredible story and excellent play control system. A definite must play
In inFamous you control Cole McGrath, originally a bicycle courier in the sprawling metropolis that is Empire City. He gets a call to deliver a package and he feels uneasy about the whole deal from the start. Sadly, he i... Read Full Review0 of 0 users found the following review helpful
While everything about Naughty Bear seems enjoyable on paper, the actual application falls very short of the mark.
I have to preface this review by pointing out that I am writing this from my experience playing Naughty Bear: Gold Edition. In the gold edition many of the more horrific crash bugs, camera issues, framerate lapses, and w... Read Full Review0 of 0 users found the following review helpful
Travis and the UAA are back for another go, coated in blood and gore and plenty of off-beat humor and ultra-violence!
The opening cinematic of this game picks up after even the events of this game. The first in-game cut-scene is from the perspective of a mystery patron at a peep show, booth 13 to be specific (a self-reference from the c... Read Full Review0 of 0 users found the following review helpful
These two games return you to a simpler time when light-guns ruled video games and tokens were the ONLY way to play.
House of the Dead 2 & 3 Return for the Nintendo Wii is a faithful reissue of two of Sega's old arcade shooters. I view these games through the rose-colored lenses of nostalgia so my review will be wrapped in the glossy ... Read Full Review0 of 0 users found the following review helpful
Incredibly ambitious title with an amazing story, but the glitches are a massive hurdle to overcome towards enjoying it.
Red Dead Redemption is Rockstar's open-world western epic. It has the incredibly compelling story that you've come to expect from Rockstar titles; not to mention all of the extra activities that you can partake of outsi... Read Full Review2 of 6 users found the following review helpful
This game is fun, funny, and chocked full of references to excite fans of the movies. A must have. Who you gonna call?
Hello, rookie. You are the proud new probationary recruit of the world-reknowned ghost busting force known as the ...err...Ghostbusters. This game uses the same basic idea we've seen in titles like the old Goonies gam... Read Full Review1 of 2 users found the following review helpful
This is Capcom's first foray back into cross over fighting in a while, but they haven't lost a single step.
Here it is, kids, another impressive feather in Capcom's errr...cap. This sound little gem almost snuck onto the Wii past us. The hype for it was fairly minimal, overshadowed largely by the afterglow of Street Fighte... Read Full Review0 of 1 users found the following review helpful
Off-beat, offensive, quirky, and gory. This title is a well-made must-have for all mature Wii owners.
Since I bought and started playing this title before other M rated games (and this one's sequel) began making a splash on the Wii but I am posting this review afterwards, I will attempt to write this as if it were still ... Read Full Review0 of 1 users found the following review helpful
Cut-scenes that seem almost like satire belie a magnificent game with a sound story and user friendly scaling controls.
The premise of Bayonetta seems straight forward and simple but the story gets impressively deep. Bayonetta is apparently the last surviving member of a clan known as the Umbra Witches. She was imprisoned in a tomb ... Read Full Review0 of 0 users found the following review helpful
This is a Katamari Knock-Off and nothing more. It's got its charm but it has it has more than enough flaws as well.
Welcome to the Wonderful End of the World. This game is available as a download through the popular Steam service. I'm not sure if you can download it anywhere else or get a hard copy in stores. You play the role of a... Read Full Review3 of 3 users found the following review helpful
skate. is EA's attempt to unseat the THPS series. I think it has established a new standard for fans of this genre.

Short, sweet, and to the point. However, the short play time is a real weak point for anyone who really enjoyed it.
John Woo’s “Stranglehold” follows the format laid out by “The Goonies II” for the NES. It is a tried and true sequel to a film done entirely in the digital realm. This one is the sequel to John Woo’s action film “Hard ... Read Full Review2 of 2 users found the following review helpful
Six disciplines, over 40 cars, and tons and tons of good, old fashioned filth all come together to make a great game.
Welcome to DiRT! This game is an excellent piece of Rally and off-road racing work from the geniuses at Codemasters. For those of you who had no interest in Rallycross Racing until Travis Pastrana threw his hat in the ... Read Full Review0 of 0 users found the following review helpful

This game takes the worst elements of the series, removes the best, and gives you a useless husk of a marketing gimmick.

This game had a lot of potential. However, it's rush job feel and glitchy nature make it hard to enjoy.
Backyard Wrestling: Don’t Try This at Home was supposed to be the video incarnation of a homegrown hardcore wrestling series. It tries to incorporate things bordering on unreal and others that are just plain silly. How... Read Full Review1 of 1 users found the following review helpful
I think this game could have done well being based on the original comic instead of the movie, it would have helped.

Unique peripherals are a dime a dozen, but Guitar Hero's polished execution make this game a total blast.

Budget price or not, with it's repetitive missions and obnoxious characters, it just doesn't cover its short-comings.

Simple interface, simple style graphics, mind-boggling depth. This is an incredible video game worthy of all praise!

I have to say that I love this new wave of “retro” games which use old concepts such as 1950's sci-fi and horror and make them into new video games. Stubbs the Zombie falls right in line with a fellow old-skool-made-new... Read Full Review0 of 1 users found the following review helpful
How Majesco salvaged a “ho-hum” beat ‘em up and made this game, I’ll never know…but I’m not complaining. The sequel to the “average-at-best” action game, Bloodrayne, is a total revolution. It’s almost like they read ... Read Full Review0 of 0 users found the following review helpful
Between the overly linear gameplay and the hideous crash bugs this one had potential and then just fell terribly short.

I have to first point out that I am at least partially influenced by the game's $20 price point. This comes after I shelled out $30 for UT2004 and $55(!) for HL2 (which I found 3 weeks later for $34.99). Area 51 is ... Read Full Review1 of 1 users found the following review helpful
