    Call of Duty: World at War

    For World at War, Treyarch's third time actually is a charm.

    When it comes to many game franchises I've played, such as ones I'm casually a fan of like Resident Evil, to ones I follow the story mythos heavily like Half-Life, there is one other franchise that I've been a fan of sin... Read Full Review

    Quantum of Solace is a half-decent action flick. But is it a half-decent video game?

    James Bond games always get a bum rap. Ever since 1997's Goldeneye hit the Nintendo 64, every subsequent Bond game has to be put up to those very high standards Rare made so long ago. As a result, these games are given u... Read Full Review

    Far Cry Instincts shows that it's a competent shooter with some decent replay value.

    You know how we seem to define some games as "generic?" The word itself seems to bring a negative tone to it, like it doesn't innovate enough. Well, sometimes games don't need to innovate and blow our minds each time, to... Read Full Review
