    The game works, it just doesn't do anything incredibly impressive.

    Legendary

    The game works, it just doesn't do anything incredibly impressive.

    As always, I have to question exactly who GS has behind the scenes reviewing its games. Easy to get hung up in a LINEAR environment? Ugly? Come on now guys. Tsk tsk. A 3.5 is a rating for a game that's broken in some ... Read Full Review

    The core of the game is as strong as ever but everything surrounding it this time out is a bit lacking.

    Unreal Tournament III

    The core of the game is as strong as ever but everything surrounding it this time out is a bit lacking.

    Basically, at its best, Unreal Tournament 3 is as good as the series has ever been; the weapon selection is good, the gameplay is solid and the graphics are pretty nice to look at. Where the game fails pretty hard in my ... Read Full Review

    There's the groundwork for a great game here, they just forgot to put the walls up and slap a roof on it.

    Bionic Commando

    There's the groundwork for a great game here, they just forgot to put the walls up and slap a roof on it.

    Well, springing off GS's own review here: This game is not a third person shooter so being overly critical of the shooting elements is a little silly. Bionic Commando's various firearms are basically there (and usual... Read Full Review

    Saints Row 2 (Collector's Edition)

  • Review Score:5.5
    Ill-conceived design mechanics make a potentially decent game much less.

    Kingdom Under Fire: Circle of Doom

    Ill-conceived design mechanics make a potentially decent game much less.

    If you know anything about the KUF series you should know that Circle of Doom is pretty much nothing like those games. Well, perhaps one thing: If you took the manual combat from the previous two KUF games and made a who... Read Full Review

    Seriously, a 5.0? There's nothing broken about this game.

    Mercenaries 2: World in Flames

    Seriously, a 5.0? There's nothing broken about this game.

    I must be doing something wrong because I managed to get through this game without experiencing anything which remotely resembled "broken" -- playing on the unpatched retail version, even. It's true that there are odd bu... Read Full Review

    For better or worse? This definitely isn't your "daddy's" Dawn of War.

    Warhammer 40,000: Dawn of War II

    For better or worse? This definitely isn't your "daddy's" Dawn of War.

    The similarities between this game and its predecessor pretty much stop at the door and with the massively-armored superhuman warriors and zany xenos -- its an entirely different bag. Some people seem to be eating it up ... Read Full Review

    It's not THAT bad, and its not broken.

    You Are Empty

    It's not THAT bad, and its not broken.

    A 1.5? Come on now. You Are Empty is definitely not Half-Life and its certainly a little underwhelming but it actually RUNS and isn't without its redeeming factors. The gameplay is shallow, linear and not very difficu... Read Full Review

    It's basically your standard "Age of" style RTS, dumbed down and mixed with Dynasty Warriors Lite.

    Rise & Fall: Civilizations at War

    It's basically your standard "Age of" style RTS, dumbed down and mixed with Dynasty Warriors Lite.

    You know the story: you start with a "town hall" and some "citizens". You forage for materials, build some stuff, make an army and wander off to kill stuff. I'm not one to bash something simply because its derivative but... Read Full Review

    Only thing worse than a bad game is a potentially great one done wrong.

    Clive Barker's Jericho (Limited Edition)

    Only thing worse than a bad game is a potentially great one done wrong.

    It's an "oldie" by now so I don't guess it really matters but I finally got around to playing it myself. I think its a well-accepted fact that Undying was a heck of a fun romp through spooksville so I was quite lookin... Read Full Review

    Despite the odd subscription aspect and a few general shortcomings, Hellgate is a solid game with a lot of good ideas.

    Hellgate: London

    Despite the odd subscription aspect and a few general shortcomings, Hellgate is a solid game with a lot of good ideas.

    I remember when this game was first announced I was really excited: first-person shooter with RPG elements? Demons and gates to hell? Why yes please! That was how I remember it originally being portrayed. When talk star... Read Full Review

    The near-future setting may not be as appealing to some as those in past installments but 2142 has it where it counts.

    Battlefield 2142

    The near-future setting may not be as appealing to some as those in past installments but 2142 has it where it counts.

    I've been playing about with the Battlefield series since the initial bricks were laid with the Wake Island demo for BF:1942. The game was fun back then and had some interesting new gameplay on the table but the successi... Read Full Review

    Pretty average overall, but solid. Manages to include some unique mechanics which at least make it interesting.

    Star Wars: Empire at War

    Pretty average overall, but solid. Manages to include some unique mechanics which at least make it interesting.

    I'm going to toss this out as a quick review simply to say that I think developers could learn a bit from this game. It's ok to take chances and try new things, a handful of unique game mechanics (which actually work pre... Read Full Review

    Could have been so much more -- pretty graphics and on-line come at the cost of just about everything else.

    SoulCalibur IV

    Could have been so much more -- pretty graphics and on-line come at the cost of just about everything else.

    Regardless of your feelings for the nuances of past Soul Caliburs -- how much better SC2 was than SC3, how much you hated Chronicles of the Sword, how much the extra weapon styles sucked -- you simply cannot excuse the h... Read Full Review
