    Rift = WOW + Warhammer

    Rift

    Rift = WOW + Warhammer

    If you've played a rogue in WOW guess what... the rogue in Rift is pretty much the same, even the abilities. Same with every other class. The quest system is the same as WOW. The classes are a mixture of WOW & Warhamm... Read Full Review

    Open ended action / rpg, pretty graphics, crappy controls, crappy save game, crappy inventory

    Red Dead Redemption

    Open ended action / rpg, pretty graphics, crappy controls, crappy save game, crappy inventory

    1 point for graphics thats about the only good thing with this game. I'm not one for desert/mesa atmosphere mind you I prefer forests and such but the landscapes look realistic. Downside is that its very hard to se... Read Full Review

    Not bad if you're bored and have nothing else to play.  Shabby follow up to the first with very linear gameplay.

    Mass Effect 2

    Not bad if you're bored and have nothing else to play. Shabby follow up to the first with very linear gameplay.

    First complaint, the subtitles are the same color as most of the background colors. Second, the plot or lack thereof. Yeah, collectors new baddies who come out of nowhere and one shot the Normandy for some reason hav... Read Full Review

    Darksiders = 360's version of Zelda with a lil Ninja Gaiden

    Darksiders

    Darksiders = 360's version of Zelda with a lil Ninja Gaiden

    If you played Nintendo's Zelda series and liked it you'll like Darksiders. The games are pretty much the same in relation to gameplay, controls, dungeons and combat. Its very similar to Zelda and I'd say Ninja Gaiden. ... Read Full Review

    Bio-Ware delivers...

    Dragon Age: Origins

    Little to linear for my tastes. Also theres too much loading between what few areas you have to explore. I'm still really biased for Oblivion, that game was so huge and open ended there isn't really an RPG that can com... Read Full Review

    Not what you'd expect & free to play definitely worth checking out

    Dungeons & Dragons Online: Eberron Unlimited

    Not what you'd expect & free to play definitely worth checking out

    This game can be extremely easy or frustratingly difficult. It all depends on what difficulty you chose for dungeons. You can select solo - elite which changes the levels and abilities of the enemies and the rewards sc... Read Full Review

    Blend of WOW & Diablo looks good and tons of classes to play things to do

    Free Realms

    Blend of WOW & Diablo looks good and tons of classes to play things to do

    The game looks alot like WOW. I like that, the cartoonish avatars always appeal to me. You can become plenty of "jobs" some of which require you to be a member which is 5.99 a month. You can also purchase station cash... Read Full Review

    Great Continuation of Old Franchise

    Quake 4

    Great Continuation of Old Franchise

    I played Quake 2 for over a year competively online and in my opinion it provided the best online FPS for its time. Everything else since has tried to copy it. I haven't been able to try Quake 4 online but the single p... Read Full Review

    Too Dark

    Doom 3

    Too Dark

    I didn't like this game because it felt too confined and far too dark. Pretty much every single encounter is engineered so that you open a door and guaranteed theres something on the other side. Or you enter a room and... Read Full Review

    Mass Effect

    I'm not that far into it and the story hasn't really been fleshed out yet but my main impression is that this game appears identical to KOTOR style games except it takes place in a different universe. The gameplay is on... Read Full Review

    If you enjoy watching avatars dance or cybering this is your game.

    Thats what you'll be doing with 99% of your time in Second Life. The few people who take the game seriously will disagree but after teleporting around to areas wehre people congregate everyone is either "dancing&... Read Full Review

    Boring, same as any other MMORPG out there

    The Lord of the Rings Online: Shadows of Angmar

    Boring, same as any other MMORPG out there

    Think of MMORPG's like a cake. The inside is basically the same, you create a character, do quests and level up. They're all the same at their core except the icing on this cake is Lord of The Rings content. When you ... Read Full Review

    Metroid Prime 2: Echoes

    Great FPS / Adventure although more difficult

    I came upon this game by mistake. Originally, I planned on buying a used copy of the first game, Metroid Prime. It was only 14.99 used, picked it up and went home. When I put it into my gamecube... I had Metroid Pr... Read Full Review

    Star Wars Galaxies: The Complete Online Adventures

    Could've been great but dev's totally screwed this one up.

    I played at release, and the game was far from ready to be released. I still remember the day I logged in. Created a small bothan named Skarwolf and logged into Moenia. Instantly I heard the sounds of lazer fire, and ... Read Full Review

    Innumerable annoying pop-up battles, redoing the same area for hours, and dealing with extremely weak characters...

    If you like extremely annoying pop-up combat that happens frequently with random monsters that can wipe your group the second you exit a town... this is the game for you. Not me though. I don't even wanna waste my ti... Read Full Review

    Phenomenal story, epic in proportion even though it was hacked apart...

    Xenogears: Elyhaym Van Houten Edition (Square Millennium Collection)

    Phenomenal story, epic in proportion even though it was hacked apart...

    Xenogears was underrated for its time. It was an epic RPG set in a semi-futuristic world where nations battle with mobile robotic suits. When you're not fighting in the suits the combat is just as good with the regular... Read Full Review

    Guild Wars Special Edition

    Diablo-esque, but all online & free with more customization & area's

    I hate when games are compared to Diablo. What about the Ultima series, with its patented 3/4 overhead view. They were more action-rpg similar to what Diablo would become. That being said, Guildwars allows you to pl... Read Full Review

    Not worth the time... Unless you speak Japanese and like farmers.

    When this game was released in North America it had already been out for a year in Japan. The existing players took advantage of this and perma camped all npc's that dropped low level items and placed them on auctions a... Read Full Review
