    Battlefield: Bad Company 2

    This review reflects the multiplayer aspect of the game, which barely misses the mark with sometimes disastrous results.

    First, let me say that I haven't played through the entirety of the single player campaign. As such this review will only be based upon the multiplayer portion. There are several flaws in the design of Battlefield's ... Read Full Review

    Borderlands has a distinct personality, and it's for anyone who likes to laugh and shoot stuff.

    Borderlands

    Borderlands has a distinct personality, and it's for anyone who likes to laugh and shoot stuff.

    First I will say that this game has been a lot of fun for me and friends. I've played through multiple times although I have yet to purchase the DLC myself, though I'm told it's well worth it. In order to keep this s... Read Full Review

    Long time Final Fantasy fans may be disappointed in what I would call a lack of depth for this installment.

    Final Fantasy XIII

    Long time Final Fantasy fans may be disappointed in what I would call a lack of depth for this installment.

    TL;DR -- Game's too short, develop characters more, make combat more fun/stop forcing us to use AIs, and make the theme behind Final Fantasy love instead of politics: much easier to become engrossed in something so emoti... Read Full Review

    Civ IV suffers from some serious problems, but the unchanging formula for addiction saves the day.

    Sid Meier's Civilization IV

    Civ IV suffers from some serious problems, but the unchanging formula for addiction saves the day.

    I'll try to keep this brief. There are major problems with Civ IV that sometimes make it unplayable. There are known bugs and glitches that have no solution known (as far as I can tell), and support has mainly moved on t... Read Full Review

    The formula didn't change too much from Fallout 3, but the additions are well worth it!

    Fallout: New Vegas

    The formula didn't change too much from Fallout 3, but the additions are well worth it!

    When this game first came out it had a few flaws. Mainly the number of bugs in the game. And even now they still haven't worked out all the kinks. That's truly the main problem with this game. Other than that, it is an a... Read Full Review

    When moving your character becomes a chore there is no hope for redemption

    Bionic Commando

    When moving your character becomes a chore there is no hope for redemption

    My blurb says it all. In a game that is supposed to be about free form movement, bionic commando makes movement a chore. Using the arm is supposed to be the main selling point, yet using the arm just isn't fun at all. It... Read Full Review

    While still an enormous fan of the original Armored Core, lack of intuitive gameplay prevents the series from moving up.

    Armored Core 4

    While still an enormous fan of the original Armored Core, lack of intuitive gameplay prevents the series from moving up.

    TL;DR at bottom I am, and always will be, an enormous fan of the original Armored Core. AC 3 was a disappointment for me in that it was so difficult to play that I, turning to casual gaming rather than hardcore (life ... Read Full Review

    Call of Duty: Black Ops

  • Review Score:7
    Classic example of one step forward and two steps back. Simple mistakes could have been avoided, still decent with live.

    Call of Duty: Black Ops

    Classic example of one step forward and two steps back. Simple mistakes could have been avoided, still decent with live.

    I list this as disappointing because it was. There was a lot of hype and black ops didn't quite deliver. Generally speaking when a series as popular as Call of Duty comes out with a new game you expect it to keep taking ... Read Full Review

    Mass Effect 2 does everything it promises and delivers a surprisingly addictive storyline, suffering only minor problems

    The good the bad and the ugly. Let's write it out like that shall we? The good is the extremely well written storyline, amazing characters, and fun and involving combat system. The RPG elements to the story are mixed ... Read Full Review

    Guild Wars Special Edition

    This review is from a seasoned vet after all stand alone games and the expansion have been out.

    This review will assess the state of affairs in the current Guild Wars game. When Guild Wars first came out, it deserved 9.5 out of 10. Now, it truly only deserves a 5.5 - the difference is what the add ons do to an MMO.... Read Full Review

    The storyline draws you in and the combat is fluid. Not much is missing from Alan Wake

    The storyline draws you in and the combat is fluid. Not much is missing from Alan Wake

    First, it's a psychological thriller set in the third person shooter architecture. If you enjoy psychy thrillers, this game is an absolute must have. It's less of a scare and more of a snare though. The story is so inter... Read Full Review
