    Great story driven action

    Max Payne 3

    Rated on May 14, 2013 by beaker707

    Great story driven action

    This game was awesome. I was turned off at first by the somewhat clunky controls - not as rough as grant theft auto but not as smooth as other 3rd person shooters. It took me a few tries - and in the ...

    Best strategy game ever

    Sid Meier's Civilization IV

    Best strategy game ever

    I put more hours into Civilization 4 than any other game I've ever played. Addictive game play and amazing replayability allowed me to enjoy this game for weeks at a time. Civilization 4 is a grea...

    Civilization series goes down the drain

    Sid Meier's Civilization V

    Civilization series goes down the drain

    This game taught me to never pre-order video games. Never assume a sequel will live up to its predecessor. Indeed, it seems as though the Civilization series took several steps backwards with this dis...

    great combat and role-playing elements make this a must play game

    Mass Effect 2

    great combat and role-playing elements make this a must play game

    This is one of the most entertaining games to come out in years. The plot is excellent for a video game and the action is thoroughly entertaining. I've played it through three times, and found it chal...

    good story, o.k. action

    Mass Effect

    Rated on March 20, 2010 by beaker707

    good story, o.k. action

    In reviewing this game, I've tried to be as fair as possible, considering that I played it years after it first came out. I tried not to let obsolescence of certain aspects of the game prejudice my re...

    Excellent, challenging FPS.

    Crysis

    Rated on March 19, 2010 by beaker707

    Excellent, challenging FPS.

    I couldn't get enough of the action in this game. I guess the reason I can rate it so highly is that I've learned not to expect too much from a FPS story, and my review is based almost entirely on the...

    way too easy

    Half-Life 2

    Rated on March 19, 2010 by beaker707

    way too easy

    I know everybody loved this game – but I had one major problem with it. It was far too easy, even on the hardest difficulty setting. I need a challenge out of a game if I'm going to enjoy it. I felt l...
