    While not the total disaster some would say, it still ain't good.

    Aliens: Colonial Marines

    Rated on February 24, 2013 by Treadstone71

    While not the total disaster some would say, it still ain't good.

    Of all things, A:CM suffers from expectations. We all bought into it - Gearbox (Come on - Makers of Borderlands 1 & 2!) and an Aliens license - what could possibly go wrong!? I pre-ordered it instan...

    Leave it to the Russians to create another great atmospheric, post-apocalyptic first person shooter.

    Metro 2033

    Rated on May 22, 2011 by Treadstone71

    Leave it to the Russians to create another great atmospheric, post-apocalyptic first person shooter.

    Maybe it's an artifact of growing up in a transitional post communist era. Or maybe it's just a Russian thing, but for whatever reason, they crank out some seriously cool FPS's. Metro 2033 is no e...

    STO does indeed suck - but somehow that's not stopping me from enjoying the hell out of it.

    Star Trek Online

    Rated on February 27, 2010 by Treadstone71

    STO does indeed suck - but somehow that's not stopping me from enjoying the hell out of it.

    I guess you could say I went into it with my eyes wide open. I consider myself a syndicated trekker having grown up in the 70's. I know TOS inside and out. I'm a casual NG fan having seen about hal...

    They need a new Classification item:  "Console Port"

    Far Cry 2

    Rated on October 30, 2009 by Treadstone71

    They need a new Classification item: "Console Port"

    Disappointment would be the best description of my overall feelings towards FarCry 2. With the exception of Fallout 3, I looked forward to this game more than any other within its release window. ...

    The game that Shadow of Chernobyl should have been.

    S.T.A.L.K.E.R.: Clear Sky

    Rated on October 22, 2008 by Treadstone71

    The game that Shadow of Chernobyl should have been.

    SPOILER ALERT: Review contains some plot spoilers for the original Shadow of Chernobyl game To start off, I loved Shadow of Chernobyl (herein referred to as SoC for brevity's sake). The ambiance ...

    Space Siege is dummed down - not sure why they felt they had to do that, but the game definitely suffers for it.

    Space Siege

    Rated on August 16, 2008 by Treadstone71

    Space Siege is dummed down - not sure why they felt they had to do that, but the game definitely suffers for it.

    Space Siege is the next Action RPG from Chris Taylor. The Game loosely follows in the footsteps of his previous Dungeon Siege outings with the obvious exception that this one is in Space, as opposed ...

    This game isn't Privateer, but that doesn't stop it from being fun - if you're willing to put effort in at the outset.

    Spaceforce: Rogue Universe

    Rated on June 12, 2007 by Treadstone71

    This game isn't Privateer, but that doesn't stop it from being fun - if you're willing to put effort in at the outset.

    I'm not sure why, but I really like this game. It's very difficult at first and requires at least an hour (if not two) of your time before you begin to really get the hang of it. Those not willing t...

    I had a lot of fun with Gun, but I also found myself constantly wishing that the developers had done more with it.

    Gun

    Rated on April 02, 2006 by Treadstone71

    I had a lot of fun with Gun, but I also found myself constantly wishing that the developers had done more with it.

    I’ll forgo the obligatory comparisons to GTA and just say that Gun is a semi-open ended action Western. This had the potential to be one of the greatest games on the planet, but a couple of things dr...

    Sacred

    Rated on March 29, 2004 by Treadstone71

    After 50 hours of playing through Sacred’s Multiplayer Coop with a friend, I have come to the conclusion that Sacred is akin to an abusive relationship. The defining characteristic of an abusive rela...

    Mace Griffin Bounty Hunter

    Rated on June 24, 2003 by Treadstone71

    Mace Griffin is one of the better games in recent memory to come out for XBOX. Its big “hook” is that it seamlessly mixes space combat action and first person shooter action for a new twist: fly you...
