    Will make you want to die

    College Hoops 2K8

    Rated on July 01, 2010 by brianguy7

    Will make you want to die

    First, the positives (to get them out of the way): Fun college atmosphere. That's about all I can say. Negatives: Basically, it's broken. It is completely unforgivable how 2K has allowed some bug...

    Good, but with some INFURIATING problems.

    NBA 2K8

    Rated on May 31, 2010 by brianguy7

    Good, but with some INFURIATING problems.

    This is a sharp-looking NBA game with a good level of immersion. I play it often and enjoy it for the most part, but we play sports games because we enjoy competition... and unfortunately, like bad r...

    Better than any PS3 or 360 NFL game... Still!

    ESPN NFL 2005

    Rated on June 15, 2009 by brianguy7

    Better than any PS3 or 360 NFL game... Still!

    This is the best football game, ever. Here are the reasons: The gameplay is as good or better as any Madden game. I like the button-mashing run acceleration better than holding down a 'sprint' bu...

    Too much management to deliver the battles you want.

    Star Wars: Galactic Battlegrounds

    Rated on May 10, 2008 by brianguy7

    Too much management to deliver the battles you want.

    Since StarCraft, fans have been wishing for a Star War RTS. Seeing big fleets of Terran Wraiths swarming over Zerg Hives, we all imagined X-Wings making attack runs on entrenched Imperials. Sadly,...

    Bob Colayco nailed it: "feels too much like a mishmash of several other well-known gaming franchises..."

    Batman Begins

    Rated on May 10, 2008 by brianguy7

    Bob Colayco nailed it: "feels too much like a mishmash of several other well-known gaming franchises..."

    This game "feels too much like a mishmash of several other well-known gaming franchises and ends up overly simplistic. " Batman is deserving of an immersive, free-form game. In the film Batman Beg...

    A good, balanced game.

    The Lord of the Rings, The Battle for Middle-earth

    Rated on May 10, 2008 by brianguy7

    A good, balanced game.

    The hardest part of making this game was balancing the epic scale of the film battles, while making the heroes great (like they should be)--but not so great that the completely demolish the other tact...

    Best of the series, and worth a try.

    Ultimate Spider-Man

    Rated on May 10, 2008 by brianguy7

    Best of the series, and worth a try.

    Treyarch has been trying long and hard to capture Spider-man in a game. Spider-Man: The Movie was a weird mix of swinging from nothing in particular to Splinter-Cell-esque stealth scenes. Spider-man...

    One of the top ten games made, ever.  Period.

    Star Wars: X-Wing

    Rated on May 10, 2008 by brianguy7

    One of the top ten games made, ever. Period.

    This game is perfect in every respect. The graphics were great (for their time), the mission structure and difficulty are perfect, it is fun enough to spend hours a day on, and it is without a doubt ...

    LucasArts, pay attention to the LOTR games!

    Star Wars Episode III: Revenge of the Sith

    Rated on March 08, 2008 by brianguy7

    LucasArts, pay attention to the LOTR games!

    By my count, there have been about 15 Star Wars Prequel-focused games: Phantom Menace (adventure) Gungan Frontier Starfighter Racer Jedi Power Battles Obi-Wan (XBox only) Racer's Revenge Cl...

    Do you like Episode I ?

    Star Wars: Episode I Battle for Naboo

    Rated on March 08, 2008 by brianguy7

    Do you like Episode I ?

    ... that will determine how you approach this game. Some of us hear the title and think, "Battle for Naboo? Who cares about Naboo... let it burn to the ground." Others will see this game and say,...

    The best way to relieve the (old) movies!

    Star Wars Rogue Leader: Rogue Squadron II

    Rated on March 08, 2008 by brianguy7

    The best way to relieve the (old) movies!

    Star Wars games have frequently missed the mark. This fact is beyond dispute with gamers. For every X-Wing or TIE Fighter (classics that are still played a decade and a half, and five major OS's l...

    The best Rainbow Six will ever have to offer.

    Tom Clancy's Rainbow Six 3: Raven Shield

    Rated on March 08, 2008 by brianguy7

    The best Rainbow Six will ever have to offer.

    While "Lockdown" was popular on consoles, and "Vegas" was also very popular and technically amazing, "Raven Shield" will probably go down in history as the chapter of Rainbow Six that was the most tru...

    Not a great use of CD-ROM techology

    Star Wars: Rebel Assault

    Rated on March 08, 2008 by brianguy7

    Not a great use of CD-ROM techology

    This was the game that got a lot of people to upgrade their 386's, or buy CD-ROM hardware upgrades. Unfortunately, a lot of them, like me, were disappointed. Rebel Assault is a rail-shooter. That...

    X-Wing Collector's Series

    Rated on March 08, 2008 by brianguy7

    Two of the very best, ever. One bonus thrown in, besides.

    X-Wing, and soon after TIE Fighter, are simply put two of the greatest PC games ever. They are also considered by many (especially most 30+ years old) to be the definitive Star Wars games. These a...

    Probably the best Star Wars game, ever.

    Star Wars: TIE Fighter

    Rated on December 15, 2007 by brianguy7

    Probably the best Star Wars game, ever.

    Believe the other good reviews, TIE Fighter is immersive, long, easy to learn, and difficult to master. I would go so far as to say that these games (TIE, alont with X-wing) know exactly which parts ...

    Clancy approves of this grade-school schlock?!?

    Tom Clancy's Rainbow Six: Lockdown

    Rated on October 16, 2006 by brianguy7

    Clancy approves of this grade-school schlock?!?

    I am all for creative license in gaming, but this is just too much. The thing that made the original R6 in the late 1990's so great is that it felt so REAL--we were real, vulnerable soldiers in a dan...

    GoldenEye: Rogue Agent

    Rated on September 23, 2006 by brianguy7

    Take a good game's name, Halo 2's structure and.... make it boring.

    I am one level shy of finishing this game and have lost motivation to go the distance. The main reason isn't that I feel EA ripped us off by using a good game's title to make this puppy sell, but bec...

    I change my mind... not a bad game!

    The Lord of the Rings: War of the Ring

    Rated on April 11, 2006 by brianguy7

    I change my mind... not a bad game!

    I initially reviewed this as a 5.0 because I was shocked to have it end at Helm's Deep (movie 2 of 3) and the screenshots were deceptive with the number of units you can support at once. However, it ...
