    Absolution is a fun, third-person action-adventure game; it just isn't worthy of the Hitman name.

    Hitman: Absolution

    Absolution is a fun, third-person action-adventure game; it just isn't worthy of the Hitman name.

    Hitman: Absolution tries to be something it shouldn't. Instead of following the conventional Hitman approach of silence, stealth and subtlety, it opts instead for thrills and action, not exactly failing, but not exactly ... Read Full Review

    Hotline Miami is a stylistic, gory top-down game, and certainly one of the top games of 2012.

    Hotline Miami

    Hotline Miami is a stylistic, gory top-down game, and certainly one of the top games of 2012.

    Hotline Miami, compared to the triple-A titles released this year, may seem to pale in contrast. It's pixelated style is reminiscent of 8-bit shooters, and its gameplay is technically quite simple. If we examine solely t... Read Full Review

    Forget Fallout 3; this is the definitive Fallout experience

    Fallout: New Vegas

    Forget Fallout 3; this is the definitive Fallout experience

    Before I start the review, I'd like to point out that I played the game with every piece of DLC installed as found in the Ultimate Edition. As such, my experiences, and thus my opinion of the game, may differ from your o... Read Full Review

    A great short-form game that captures your imagination.

    FTL: Faster Than Light

    A great short-form game that captures your imagination.

    FTL is a game unlike any I've ever played. On the surface, the game seems simple enough; you act as the commander of a vessel, controlling every crew member, every weapon, and every decision you come upon. You'll come ac... Read Full Review

    With Mass Effect 3, the epic, spanning narrative finally comes to an end. But is this a good thing? *spoiler-free*

    Mass Effect 3

    With Mass Effect 3, the epic, spanning narrative finally comes to an end. But is this a good thing? *spoiler-free*

    The Mass Effect games were almost immediately elevated to the halls of RPG perfection with the release of the first game, which not only incorporated great gameplay and action, but an interactive story with real, measura... Read Full Review

    Mostly fun, but a few oversights leave the player frustrated

    Kingdom Hearts

    Mostly fun, but a few oversights leave the player frustrated

    I picked up Kingdom Hearts for the PS2 many years back, and it's one of my oldest games for the system. That being said, the game is still one of a kind, and boldly went where no other game had dared to go before: a game... Read Full Review

    Simply amazing, don't even rent, just buy it right now

    Borderlands

    Simply amazing, don't even rent, just buy it right now

    I got this game from gamefly a few days ago and figured it would just be your standard fare rpg loot 'n grab game; a half ass diablo 2 with more guns, basically. Boy was I wrong. My friend from class told me that he had ... Read Full Review

    An excellent game, and for 15 dollars, an extraordinary bargain

    Battlefield 1943

    An excellent game, and for 15 dollars, an extraordinary bargain

    I was online a few weeks ago, and noticed something new. A game called Battlefield 1943 was out, and, strangely, I didn't see it on Gamefly. After a bit more research, I found out it was an Arcade game for X360 (or PSN g... Read Full Review

    An amazing example of third-person kick-butt action!

    Max Payne 2: The Fall of Max Payne

    An amazing example of third-person kick-butt action!

    Max Payne, the original, was great on the story side and a little awkward on the gameplay side. The animations and AI were okay, but the graphics were a little out of date. Now, with Max Payne 2, this has been resolved. ... Read Full Review

    True Crime: New York City

    True Crime- the series has always been touted as the GTA- killer games that will end that series forever. Think again. Its funny how the games, streets of la, and this one always look good in previews but stink in the e... Read Full Review

    the mild let down is long and gone, but not for some people

    Halo 2

    the mild let down is long and gone, but not for some people

    When i first got Halo 2, i skipped the other difficulties and went straight to legendary. OMG! It's like they but full body kevlar suits on the grunts! Needless to say, i did have some fun, but most of my time was spent ... Read Full Review
