    Greatest game I've ever played, but take that with a grain of salt as I am a huge fan of atmospheric western movies.

    Red Dead Redemption

    Greatest game I've ever played, but take that with a grain of salt as I am a huge fan of atmospheric western movies.

    Never enjoyed a game more. I loved GTA IV, and really enjoy games like Portal, and Bioshock, but this game hit me right where I live. I love the whole of the western film genre, from The Good, The Bad, and the Ugly to ... Read Full Review

    I'm trying to get into it and it's just not working for me.  It's like someone sold me a bag of baking soda.

    Mass Effect 2

    I'm trying to get into it and it's just not working for me. It's like someone sold me a bag of baking soda.

    I think that I may have just reached some kind of internal biological limit on the number of times I can play a Space Marine. I see a pulsing crate ahead, but unless it contains a Bioshock 2 installer I just don't give ... Read Full Review

    A good entry into the emerging ambient gaming genre.  Relaxing, strategic, but too much "fly herding".

    A good entry into the emerging ambient gaming genre. Relaxing, strategic, but too much "fly herding".

    Relaxing, pretty. It's a good entry into the ambient gaming genre. If you liked Osmosis, then you'll like this. Interesting that levels are generated dynamically. This means that if you replay a level it won't be the... Read Full Review

    This is far more than just more.

    Crysis Warhead

    This is far more than just more.

    My expectation here was that this would simply be more of the same, basically a few more maps that were pretty much re-hashes of Crysis maps but with props moved about to create novel tactical situations. I was looking ... Read Full Review

    Wow this game blows.  What a yawn - wake me when we're out of 2003.

    Hellgate: London

    Wow this game blows. What a yawn - wake me when we're out of 2003.

    Old school, yes. But not in a good way. At no point does this game make one feel clever. The creature design that doesn't blow is hobbled by dated poly counts and inscrutable textures. As for the maps - the levels re... Read Full Review

    Really very good, but I happened to play Bioshock and Portal before starting Episode 2, and it suffered by comparison.

    Half-Life 2: Episode Two

    Really very good, but I happened to play Bioshock and Portal before starting Episode 2, and it suffered by comparison.

    Having played Portal and Bioshock just before sparking up this game, it ended up feeling somewhat dated. Had I played this first I probably would have given it a 9.0 as it is a great chapter in the saga with some satis... Read Full Review

    The Greatest Western You Will Ever Star In.  Brief repetitive gameplay and glacial load/save times my only real gripes.

    Call of Juarez

    The Greatest Western You Will Ever Star In. Brief repetitive gameplay and glacial load/save times my only real gripes.

    Take this game for what it is - a classic western flick in which you star in two different roles. As such there is of course a script - one to which you must rigorously adhere, so this is not a world you get to explore ... Read Full Review

    The Ship

    Always wanted to be a narcoleptic, incontinent, obsessive-compulsive, binge-eating hit man? This is the game for you.

    But seriously, who wants to be that? No one ever made a movie about a hit-man who can't get from one end of a cruise ship to the other without having to eat, drink, crap, wash his hands, and sleep. Why not? Because no... Read Full Review

    The only thing that kept it from being a 10 for me was it's brevity and minimal replay value.

    Darwinia

    The only thing that kept it from being a 10 for me was it's brevity and minimal replay value.

    This is probably one of the most gratifying games I've ever played. The primitive polygonal style is evocative of Tron and somehow it doesn't feel cheap, just beautiful. The only problem I had with it is that just when... Read Full Review
