Minecraft is an excellent example of sandbox gaming in its purest form and a great game all together.
This review is based on the beta version 1.4. Many people have asked me, "So, what's the point of Minecraft?" and then I tell them, "Well, here's the thing. There is no point." Some people take that in stride, others ... Read Full Review8 of 8 users found the following review helpful

Mass Effect 2
Gran Turismo 5 is an unmistakable joy to drive but numerous poor design decisions may hamper your ability to enjoy it.
Gran Turismo 5, a game that was long speculated to be vaporware by many people within the gaming community, is finally here. Polyphony Digital's follow up to 2005's Gran Turismo 4, released on the PS2 was nearly six year... Read Full Review9 of 10 users found the following review helpful
While Halo 2 isn't without its faults and does fall short in some areas, there's no doubt that this is an excellent game
Editor's Note: Halo 2 was released on the Xbox on November 9, 2004. Thus, I will be treating this review as if I am reviewing it in 2004. All comments are made in regards to the standards of that time period, as I don't ... Read Full Review2 of 2 users found the following review helpful
For nearly four years, Ubisoft had been hard at work on Splinter Cell: Conviction. Originally unveiled as a very different game from what the Splinter Cell series has represented in games prior, Splinter Cell: Conviction... Read Full Review6 of 6 users found the following review helpful
Super Street Fighter IV is an excellent revamp of Street Fighter IV which contains a great deal of new content.
I'll admit it; I'm not a huge fan of fighting games. I've never been a fan of memorizing long lists of combos and special moves for each of any one game's roster of fighters, heck I've never been a fan of memorizing the ... Read Full Review4 of 5 users found the following review helpful
While it's not the console FPS perfection it once was, Perfect Dark has aged well and is still a great experience today.
The original Perfect Dark for the Nintendo 64 is perhaps my favorite game of all time. I remember fondly playing it with my friends, all of us huddled around a television, the Nintendo 64's oddly shaped three prong contr... Read Full Review11 of 13 users found the following review helpful
A fantastic narrative, deep character interaction and great RPG and TPS mechanics combine into a phenomenal experience.
When does a game become more than just a game? When can a game invoke the same emotional response from a player that cinema can from viewers or a piece of music can from its listeners? In this humble reviewer's opinion, ... Read Full Review12 of 12 users found the following review helpful
Originally announced as one of the flagship titles of the then yet to be released PSP, Gran Turismo Mobile quickly dropped off of the radar into vaporware territory. Well, imagine everyone’s surprise when, at E3 20... Read Full Review9 of 9 users found the following review helpful
Saints Row 2
The story picks up five years after the events of the first Saints Row. The player character has been in a trauma induced coma (players who finished the first game should know why) for the past five years, in which time ... Read Full Review5 of 5 users found the following review helpful

Mega Man 9
Wolf of the Battlefield: Commando 3
Commando 3 is a by-the-numbers shooter that takes no risks and, while fun, doesn't truly stand out in its crowded genre.
A long while has passed since the humble arcade beginnings of the Commando series. Back in those days, shoot em ups were all the rage in arcades and this title is content to stay true to its origins. Unfortunately, this ... Read Full Review2 of 2 users found the following review helpful
While the violence and atmosphere may be over the top, the rest of the game feels unremarkable and average in comparison
Prior to its release, Manhunt 2 was the subject of much controversy and scrutiny, having received an "Adult's Only" rating from the ESRB. This taboo rating prompted console manufacturers, retail outlets and even entire c... Read Full Review3 of 5 users found the following review helpful

Forza Motorsport 2 delivers engaging simulation racing that never fails to impress. <br /> <br /> True Score: 9.3
When Forza Motorsport debuted on the Xbox, it was Microsoft's first foray into the racing simulator subgenre and surprisingly, the first time was the charm. Forza Motorsport earned many accolades from reviewers and ga... Read Full Review5 of 5 users found the following review helpful
Kane & Lynch: Dead Men
Mario's greatest 3D adventure ever makes its way to the Virtual Console in excellent form. This is a must buy title.
Back in 1996, with the launch of the Nintendo 64, gamers witnessed the birth of a new era for one of gaming's most powerful and well-known franchises. Before then, Mario did his platform hipping in the second dimension, ... Read Full Review4 of 4 users found the following review helpful

As the Xbox 360's answer to Mario Party, Fuzion Frenzy 2 ultimately falls flat with a sub par collection of minigames.
Throughout a console’s lifespan it sees its share of bad games, games that are bland, uninspired or just plain boring. Well, Fuzion Frenzy 2 is an unfortunate combination of all three. One begins to wonder who bought eno... Read Full Review3 of 3 users found the following review helpful

Crackdown is a unique and undeniably fun sandbox game that doesn't quite live up to its amazing potential.
On the surface, Crackdown may seem like another fish in a sea of clones of the quintessential open world, sandbox series, Grand Theft Auto. The core gameplay is similar to that of Grand Theft Auto in that there are cars ... Read Full Review3 of 3 users found the following review helpful
Dead Rising is a great and original game for the Xbox 360, but a few flaws hold it back from being truly excellent.
Capcom’s latest entry into the action-adventure genre comes in the form of Dead Rising, a brutally gory and amazingly fun game. Dead Rising is what you make of it and if killing zombies is your thing, you’ll be in paradi... Read Full Review4 of 4 users found the following review helpful
