    An unbiased comparison of console vs. PC

    Diablo III

    Rated on September 05, 2013 by Speranza318

    An unbiased comparison of console vs. PC

    My original review on Diablo 3 sums up the game's minor details (see profile). Since that review, the PC version has undergone multiple revisions including making inferno easier, adding legendaries...

    Same clunky controls, poorly told story, and recycled plot elements make this no different from the past Resident Evils

    Resident Evil: Revelations

    Rated on August 11, 2013 by Speranza318

    Same clunky controls, poorly told story, and recycled plot elements make this no different from the past Resident Evils

    This game is honestly horrible. As in the review deck above, the plot is very poorly told with bad dialogue for this generation of games. The lips do not sync up to the words being spoken. The ...

    The Last of Us

    Rated on June 20, 2013 by Speranza318

    The new standard of story driven action games. Spoiler free inside.

    Interesting concept, poor presentation (spoilers)

    Far Cry 3

    Rated on June 19, 2013 by Speranza318

    Interesting concept, poor presentation (spoilers)

    Far Cry 3 is, on the surface, about a group of friends that get captured while vacationing. You play as the protagonist Jason Brody who gets caught up between becoming the warrior of a tribe, getting ...

    Solid game, but why did they change the plot from the manga?

    Naruto Shippuden: Narutimate Storm 3

    Rated on March 06, 2013 by Speranza318

    Solid game, but why did they change the plot from the manga?

    I was very excited about this game as any Naruto fan would be. However, after playing through the story mode, I am left with disgust. The plot, while sometimes done better than the manga in small do...

    Max Payne 3

    Rated on February 04, 2013 by Speranza318

    A joy to experience from beginning to finish

    This review is regarding the single player experience only. Anyone who has been playing games since the 90's should have at the very least heard of Max Payne - and hopefully experienced his story d...

    The Walking Dead: A Telltale Games Series

    Gripping story, lively characters, and tough choices make this adventure game stand tall.

    I always loved The Walking Dead comics, and so I could only hope the game did half of the comic's justice. Boy, was I surprised. The Walking Dead series is a thrilling experience that keeps you hook...

    Diablo III

    Rated on July 09, 2012 by Speranza318

    Does not live up to the series, a sheer disappointment.

    I have poured 100's of hours into this game since release. Graphically, it's beautiful. Sound effects are also excellent. The story, garbage. The servers, garbage. If you play a Hardcore c...

    In my previous review of Demon's Souls, I rated it up there with the most challenging of games. To date, it is one of my favorite games. I didn't believe the hype when From Software announced that D...

    If you are looking for a game that will challenge you like during the days of NES/SNES, look no further.

    Demon's Souls

    Rated on April 22, 2010 by Speranza318

    If you are looking for a game that will challenge you like during the days of NES/SNES, look no further.

    This is almost a perfect game. It has a very rewarding combat system, an RPG-style leveling structure, a dark story, and is possibly the most difficult game to come along since the times of "Kid Icar...

    I'll keep this short and to the point. AoC has been out for over a year now. After deciding to come back and give this game another go, fingers crossed, I was disappointed yet again with the probl...

    Crisis Core: Final Fantasy VII

    It filled some of the holes left from FF7, but made others in the process.

    I'm assuming you played FF7 in reading this post. If not, **SPOILERS** below. STORY The most important thing to remember about this game is that it is a prequel to one of the greatest RPG's e...
