Shirokishi Monogatari: Inishie no Kodou
Fun for a while, despite the cliche characters and story.
White Knight Chronicles is a long-awaited RPG for the PS3 from Level 5. Having been announced around 5 years ago, some wondered if it would ever come out, and even then the question of American availa...
Divinity II: Ego Draconis
Not a very good game but still oddly compelling.
Divinity II certainly has an interesting premise. The idea is to create and customize your own character, down to the very last detail, and then take him on a very elaborate story involving Dragons an...
Left 4 Dead 2
The new best horror franchise gets its latest addition.
"Left 4 Dead is the new best horror franchise" is an odd thing to say, especially for me. After playing a metric ton of the first game, I was satisfied with it just being another zombie game that hadn...
BioHazard: The Darkside Chronicles
Built on a solid platform with worthwhile additions.
Let's be clear on something first: I didn't really enjoy Umbrella Chronicles as much as I thought I would. That game had an excellent premise and some new ideas, but had some poor execution. The contr...
God of War Collection (Ultimate Combo Pack)
A nice compilation with remastered graphics.
God of War was one of the greatest games on the PS2, garnering much praise for its cinematic style and smooth gameplay. Its sequel, God of War II, was praised in the same areas, and for pushing the PS...
Hasbro Family Game Night 2
A tried and true concept that just works.
Hasbro Family Game Night 2 presents a concept that just plain works. Take a bunch of existing board games and convert them directly into digital format, and then sell the package at a reasonable price...
A lengthy platformer oozing with depth and substance.
Trine is one of those games that you just don't see coming and never quite understand until you play. The game is a platformer, but it's not the usual type of platformer in that it has a whole new lay...
Fairytale Fights is full of problems beyond repair.
Fairytale Fights is quite an interesting creature. The game is all about fairytale characters fighting other fairytale characters in a fairytale dreamworld. While the concept is rather interesting and...
WWE SmackDown vs. Raw 2010
Still has unacceptable issues
WWE SmackDown vs. Raw 2010 picks up exactly where last year's edition left off, adding new features such as a Storyline Designer and more, which makes it seem like it could be the best wrestling game ...
Tower Bloxx Deluxe
Stays interesting for long enough
Xbox Live Arcade is the home of several puzzle games, and most of them manage to stay fun and interesting for a while. The trend seems to be to take a tried and true gameplay style, shove some multipl...
Sam & Max: Beyond Time and Space
Only for fans of the first season.
Sam and Max Save The World was an excellent Xbox Live Arcade game that brought back to life two of the most well known adventure game characters. Beyond Time and Space builds on the foundation that th...
Axel & Pixel
Graphically impressive and fun throughout.
Braid released last summer and was praised for a few reasons, one being its art style and graphics. If Braid's graphical style was a main factor as to why you liked it, I'd definitely consider Axel & ...
A fun, challenging title that almost anyone could enjoy.
Bust-A-Move Live is the latest addition from the classic franchise that has spawned several sequels and imitations. While Bust-A-Move Live does not deviate from the classic gameplay and formula, it st...
Military Madness: Nectaris
Military Madness Nectaris stays true to its roots, but does not innovate enough to be a game from the 21st century.
Get this, Military Madness: Nectaris is a remake of a Playstation 1 game called Nectaris: Military Madness which was also a remake of Military Madness on the Turbografx 16. Be that as it may, Military...
Ion Assault has an interesting take on the dual-stick shooter format, but doesn't quite get anything right.
Ion Assault, from just looking at a screenshot, can be very deceptive. The game looks just like any other dual-stick shooter out there. I assure you it is more than that, with a unique concept and con...
Need for Speed: Shift
Need For Speed Shift continues to veer off the path of the series' former glory.
I'd like to start off by saying that EA could not have picked a more appropriate name for their latest title in the long running Need For Speed series. Not only is the game about racing really fast in...
DiRT 2 is enjoyable for a while at least.
DiRT 2 is built upon the groundwork of the previous DiRT game, with new features such as online play and flashback mode. Having not played the original, I really didn't know what to expect going in to...
Perfect swan song for the Summer of Arcade
The final Summer of Arcade title is Shadow Complex from Chair Entertainment and Epic Games. Only announced a few months ago, little about the game was known before release. I was initially skeptical ...
While the single player experience is unique, it falls short of multiplayer expectations.
Wolfenstein is a video game collaboration from id Software and Raven Software. The game has spent several years in development, and has faced certain expectations due to the quality of the older games...
Splosion Man, from the makers of the Maw, combines explosive humor and off-the-wall action.
Splosion Man, from the makers of the Maw, combines explosive humor and off-the-wall action. The game boasts both a fairly long single player and a co-op mode for double sploding fun. The question rema...
BF1943 shows us that downloadable games, as a business model are viable and are the future.
Battlefield 1943 is an interesting experiment coming from longtime Battlefield developer DICE, with the backing of EA. The game has had a rocky launch with just about everything possible going wrong. ...
The Punisher: No Mercy
Completely broken and shallow.
The Punisher: No Mercy poses an interesting proposition. The game is only $10, is a first person shooter based on the Unreal engine and has online multiplayer for support up to 8 players. The question...
Punch-Out!! is an excellent game that deserves to be in any Wii owners collection.
On a whim, I purchased Punch-Out!! for the Wii yesterday. Let me give you a quick backstory on my history with Punch-Out!! Way back when, my family had a NES, which I consider to be my first game cons...
Hasbro Family Game Night: Boggle
At 800 points, it's very difficult to recommend. Fun for a while though.
The latest in the Family Game Night for Xbox Live Arcade series is Boggle. While many other board games focus on moving a plastic piece across a board, Boggle focuses on simple word searching. This fa...
Wallace & Gromit's Grand Adventures, Episode 1: Fright of the Bumblebees
The game is only about 2-3 hours long, which is a decent value for the 800 points.
Telltale's latest adventure game is Wallace & Gromit's Grand Adventure, an episodic title that focuses on the humor of the animated British comedy with the backdrop of some old-school adventure-style ...
Bubble Bobble Plus!
Bubble Bobble Plus is an excellent WiiWare title that stands above the rest.
Bubble Bobble Plus is true to its namesake–it takes the original arcade game, gives it a new haircut and adds a few extras. The question is, do these new extras make Bubble Bobble Plus a worthy purcha...
Sam & Max: Save the World
It boasts six unique episodes for only $20; and thanks to its humor, it's well worth that price.
Sam & Max: Save the World, just released on Live Arcade, is the latest point-and-click adventure game from Telltale to show up on the Xbox Live Arcade, and is based off of Sam & Max: Season One that w...
Recently, Wolfenstein 3D was released on XBLA and PSN, with just as much fun as it ever had.
id Software's Wolfenstein 3D is long-hailed the original first person shooter. While it's not the first FPS ever created, it might as well be, as it is often credited for popularizing the genre. Recen...
Ratchet & Clank: Quest for Booty
Fun, but this quest is a mighty short one.
Ratchet and Clank Future: Quest For Booty is the next installment in the Ratchet and Clank franchise, sporting numerous sequels and fun gameplay. Quest For Booty doesn't take away from this, but wil...
Tom Clancy's Rainbow Six Vegas 2
Rainbow Six Vegas 2 improves upon its predecessor with a more robust single player, and more intense multiplayer.
Rainbow Six Vegas 2 comes hot off the heels of its predecessor, Rainbow Six Vegas from late 2006. The first Vegas game was highly regarded as one of the better shooters of this generation with plenty ...
It's sad that, even in 2008, we still have to put up with this amount of sheer mediocrity.
It's sad that, even in 2008, we still have to put up with this amount of sheer mediocrity. Haze has been looked at as an interesting first person shooter since it was first announced. Coming from t...
Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of the Patriots (Platinum)
War has changed. So has the Metal Gear Solid franchise with its fourth installment.
War has changed. So has the Metal Gear Solid franchise with its fourth installment. Thankfully, it's all for the better, culminating in one of the best games ever. Metal Gear Solid 4 has been t...
Condemned 2 does a lot of things right, but just doesn't have enough content to be worth a purchase.
Condemned 2 takes place a few months after the first game. Ethan has gone into an alcoholic rage depression where he has no friends and works for no one. Demons are haunting Ethan, real and figurative...
