Dragon Age: Origins - Awakening
Not BioWare's finest hour.
Last year's Dragon Age was a successful title for BioWare; many considered it one of their best games since Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic at the very least. While that may certainly be true t...
Mass Effect 2
A decent sequel to a decent game.
Mass Effect 2 was not a game I was particularly excited about. I found the original lacking in many areas and thought it would have been better if it was not treated as an RPG. In retrospect it probab...
Dragon Age: Origins (Collector's Edition)
BioWare's latest RPG is a satisfactory attempt at bringing the gameplay of Baldur's Gate into the current generation.
Anyone remember Baldur's Gate, BioWare's first Role Playing Game? It was twelve years ago now that Baldur's Gate hit store shelves and became the title that would define BioWare's future as a mainstre...
Aliens Versus Predator
The first decent use of the Alien and Predator licenses in a video game.
Aliens versus Predator is considered by many Alien and Predator fans to be the first decent use of the Alien and Predator licenses in a video game. Developed by Rebellion Entertainment; Aliens Versus ...
Aliens Versus Predator 2
Improves upon the original Aliens Versus Predator in nearly every way.
Rebellion did an okay job with the original Aliens Versus Predator, and it was fairly well received so that it's no surprise that Fox Interactive called for a sequel. This particular title developed b...
Aliens vs. Predator 2: Primal Hunt
A huge disappointment after Aliens Versus Predator 2.
Aliens Versus Predator 2 was a great game so I honestly didn't believe that Third Law could screw up the expansion that they were tasked with developing, but they did a good job at doing just that. ...
Barkley, Shut Up and Jam: Gaiden, Chapter 1 of the Hoopz Barkley SaGa
A hilarious parody of JRPGs, and a decent game in its own right.
Japanese Role Playing Games used to be the big thing in the 90's before Western RPGs started dominating the market. Despite cRPGs being the top dog right now thanks to companies like BioWare and even ...
Fallout 3: Mothership Zeta
While playing Mothership Zeta I was reminded of some of those old alien flicks from the 50's, and whether or not that's a good thing is in the eye of the beholder I guess. For me though; this was a ve...
King's Quest III: To Heir Is Human (VGA)
A solid remake of a classic adventure game.
In King's Quest III VGA you assume the role of a new character, Gwydion, who is seemingly unrelated to Graham and Daventry. Gwydion is a servant boy under the "employ" of an evil wizard called Manaana...
King's Quest II: Romancing The Stones (VGA)
A remake that breathes new life into a classic Sierra adventure.
King's Quest II is set some time after the original, with Graham sitting on Daventry's throne as King. Graham who is getting lonely sees a vision of a young woman trapped in a tower. Graham dons his a...
King's Quest I: Quest for the Crown (VGA Version)
A great remake of a classic Sierra adventure.
The King's Quest series stands as one of the first series' of graphical adventure games following successful text adventures like the Zork series. Over the years the King's Quest series received a sig...
Fallout 3: Point Lookout
When I heard about Point Lookout being a "swamp horror" themed DLC, I thought it would have been great to see some paranormal activity going on since the actual Point Lookout, Maryland is alleged to b...
Fallout 3 is true to the Fallout setting, and has an attention to detail that is not common for Bethesda.
I was one of those folks who called Fallout 3 "Oblivion with guns" before its release, after playing The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion I wasn't exactly expecting what we ended up getting. Fallout 3 is ac...
A good cinematic third person shooter, but not a good RPG.
Being very leery of BioWare and their one trick pony writers, I went into Mass Effect with low expectations despite all of the hype surrounding it. Since my expectations were so low I can't say I was ...
Fallout 3: Broken Steel
The only Fallout 3 DLC worth buying, and I say that loosely.
So first we got Operation: Anchorage, a Medal of Honor simulation in an action/RPG gameplay system. Then came The Pitt which introduced a very brief sojourn to Post Apocalyptic Pittsburgh for a buggy ...
Fallout 3: The Pitt
True to the Fallout style, but like Operation: Anchorage it is very short, and very buggy.
Operation: Anchorage was a pretty disappointing DLC pack for last year's Fallout 3, so I didn't have high expectations for The Pitt. I was actually surprised that the Pitt was a very traditional side ...
Fallout 3 - Operation: Anchorage
A short, linear, and buggy Medal of Honor in the Fallout setting.
Fallout 3 was a surprisingly great game when it hit shelves last year, especially since my expectations were so low. Generally I don't support the whole DLC fad that is going around, as paying for sma...
Assassin's Creed: Director's Cut Edition
A solid game that seems to be missing the "subtlety" of historical assassinations.
When I think of assassins, I generally think of men and women who use stealth and other subtle means to take out their targets. The Dark Brotherhood quest line in The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion is a g...
Galactic Civilizations: Deluxe Edition
After playing Galactic Civilizations II, the original game feels like a staggeringly large step back.
After playing and enjoying Galactic Civilizations II and its two expansions extensively I decided to try out its predecessor. I have to admit, I was expecting the original game to contain a bit less c...
Sid Meier's Civilization IV: Complete
A lot of high quality content, but a few grating flaws as well.
Admittedly I never found the past Civilization titles that good. They all felt dry and lifeless to me, some of them placing too much emphasis on pointless drivel. Civilization IV is a significant impr...
Star Wars: The Force Unleashed
It has a great story, but the generic and tedious gameplay kills the experience.
It seems like good Star Wars games are hard to come by these days as opposed to the early to late nineties when nearly every Star Wars game was actually quite good. The Force Unleashed was hyped to de...
Command & Conquer: Red Alert 3
Stop making Red Alert games, EA.
EA decided to once again employ its "one game a year" strategy, this time on the C&C series with Red Alert 3 arriving about a year after Tiberium Wars. Red Alert 3's prologue is set after Red Alert...
Neverwinter Nights 2: Storm of Zehir
A good expansion that places emphasis on gameplay rather than story.
Remember those old Gold Box D&D CRPGs from the early to mid nineties? The ones with barely any plot? Storm of Zehir is a delightful return to the days when a CRPG storyline only served to prepare you ...
It's a solid tactical game, but it could have been a lot better.
Being a fan of the first Fallout, and to a lesser degree Fallout 2 I decided to go out and buy Fallout Tactics before purchasing Fallout 3. Fallout Tactics has, since its release received mixed reacti...
Galactic Civilizations II: Twilight of the Arnor
A must have final expansion if you liked Galactic Civilizations II, and Dark Avatar.
I was fairly impressed by the additions added to Dark Avatar, so that expansion struck me as a tough act for Twilight of the Arnor to follow. Still, even though I wouldn't call any of Twilight's addit...
Galactic Civilizations II: Dark Avatar
Dark Avatar fixes most of my problems with Galactic Civilizations II.
Galactic Civilizations II: Dark Avatar, being an expansion, needs no in depth introduction. Despite being only an expansion, though; Dark Avatar comes packed with a lot of tweaks, and new features to ...
A good sequel that suffers from some problems.
Fallout was an undeniably great game and it is of no surprise that Black Isle produced a sequel only a year later. Fallout 2 used the exact same engine as the original game while still managing to pul...
Without a doubt one of the best role playing games ever developed.
The now defunct Black Isle studios left a legacy behind with a few of the industry's best RPGs. Among these RPGs is Fallout; a non linear game with a somewhat loose story and turn based combat, but a ...
Star Wars: Battlefront II
It sometimes feels like a glorified expansion, but Battlefront II is still a fun game in its own right.
Last year's Star Wars: Battlefront was generally considered a hit; especially by Star Wars fans who always wanted to participate in the classic Star Wars battles up close and personal. Exactly one yea...
Galactic Civilizations II: Dread Lords
I'm rarely able to get into 4X games, but Galactic Civilizations II is just plain brilliant.
I've played many 4X games, the Civilizations, and Master of Orion to name a few... but none of them really sucked me in. Galactic Civilizations II presents a satisfying strategy experience with deep g...
King's Bounty: The Legend
A decent effort at remaking a New World Computing classic.
King's Bounty was one of those old PC titles that not many people have heard of, but it still managed to gain a dedicated following. A predecessor to the Heroes of Might and Magic series, the original...
Clive Barker's Undying
A great horror themed shooter with a solid story, and entertaining gameplay.
I have to be honest, I haven't read any of Clive Barker's writings, so the whole "Clive Barker" thing in the title just didn't catch my attention. After playing Undying, though; I can see why he's a f...
Neverwinter Nights: Hordes of the Underdark
The best OC for the original Neverwinter Nights, but that's not really saying much.
Bioware releases a lot of hit and miss titles that get endless praise, the only exception being the Neverwinter Nights OC which is universally considered abysmal. Hordes of the Underdark is the second...
Command & Conquer 3: Kane's Wrath
Despite only having a Nod campaign, Kane's Wrath comes packed with a lot of high quality content.
Being one of the Command & Conquer veterans who did not feel that last year's Tiberium Wars was a disappointment, I was anticipating the arrival of Kane's Wrath despite the lack of a GDI campaign. For...
Warhammer 40,000: Dawn of War - Soulstorm
A little rough around the edges, but it closes the book on the original Dawn of War with dignity.
Dawn of War was one of those games that was surprisingly entertaining for me. I knew nothing about Warhammer 40,000 (and still know little) so playing a game that used that license seemed pointless, ...
Star Wars: Battlefront
I bent my Wookiee.
Star Wars: Battlefront II has been out for a while, so why would I go back and review the original you ask? Well, while SWBF II was a decent sequel to this title, I always felt that the original was t...
Neverwinter Nights: Shadows of Undrentide
It was better than the Neverwinter Nights campaign at least.
After forcing myself to slog through the Neverwinter Nights OC recently I decided to replay both of the NWN expansions again. Obviously I started with Shadows of Undrentide, and I can't say that I lik...
Good if you enjoy crafting game worlds, awful if you're looking for a solid single player experience.
Since I played through and enjoyed the Neverwinter Nights 2 Official Campaign last year, I decided that I'd eventually give the original Neverwinter Nights official campaign another go for the heck of...
Super Smash Bros. Brawl
An amusing third installment, but unlocking every little thing is a bit much.
I was first introduced to this series over at a friend's house years ago, when the original Super Smash Bros came out for the N64. I found the game to be good fun, and hilarious, so when Melee came ou...
Supreme Commander: Forged Alliance
If you already own Supreme Commander then this title is not really worth the money spent.
Supreme Commander was a solid, but often dry experience for RTS fans when it was released early last year. It was especially appealing to fans of Total Annihilation, which admittedly I still have not ...
