All dressed up and no place to go
PROS: * Great environments -- Empire Bay looks terrific, and nice weather effects too * Good voice acting throughout * Gunplay/cover system is fair - not amazing, but still fun CONS: * Extremel...
DC Universe Online
Fast-paced, fun to play, but a little too shallow for an MMO
I played in Beta, but decided not to purchase the retail game. Overall it was fun for a few weeks but very forgettable. A quick overview: Pros: -- Great textures, and nice equippable gear options ...
Fantastic landscape, great open-ended gameplay, wonderful score. Also a bit repetitive, and buggy as hell.
Interesting RPG that isn't nearly as polished or stable as it should be. I almost gave up early on due to all the bugs, but I'm glad I stuck with it because Gothic 3 does have some nice things to off...
SpellForce: The Order of Dawn
This ambitious mix of gaming elements is not a recipe for fun
I picked up Spellforce: Platinum on sale via Impulse last month. Based on the editor reviews, I thought it might turn out to be the kind of game that rewards you for digging deeper and investing a ...

Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic II: The Sith Lords
It is what it is -- another serviceable Bioware RPG vehicle.
I'm a little surprised at the excellent critical reception Bioware's recent RPGs have enjoyed, including KOTOR 2. Don't get me wrong -- KOTOR and Jade Empire are probably the best RPGs out there thes...
Long on style, short on substance.
Playing "Gun" is a bit like chatting up a runway model. It's drop-dead gorgeous, but it doesn't take long to realize there's really nothing going on upstairs. So yes, Gun is gorgeous. Beautiful...
Good game for its time, a nice hybrid of a Tomb Raider-style 3rd person shooter and a combo-fighter.
Oni is obviously dated these days -- even more so than other PS2 games. The cavernous blocky levels, super-low poly characters, short rendering horizon, and static low-res textures weren't top-notch ...
Red Dead Revolver
Ambience and environment make for a fun FPS "skin"
Red Dead Revolver looks like it could easily have been developed on top of the Unreal Engine, and for the most part, the game plays like a straightforward shooter. There's enough flavor to make the e...
