    Thought it would be a retread but...!

    Assassin's Creed: Revelations

    Thought it would be a retread but...!

    AC: Revelations, after Ubisoft putting out one nearly every year it seemed that this version would be just AC 2.75. But it is flat amazing to me. Constantinople is a welcome change from the Italian versions of the past... Read Full Review

    Star Wars Rogue Leader: Rogue Squadron II

    Star Wars fan and don't own RSII, go get it. Now.

    I was born and raised loving Star Wars. Saw the first three movies countless times with my dad in the theaters. But sadly there haven't been many great games based on SW. Luckily I finally decided to pick up a GameCub... Read Full Review

    A shocking (a good thing) upgrade from ACI

    Assassin's Creed II

    A shocking (a good thing) upgrade from ACI

    ACI was a very good game, only problem was, as is well known it was terribly repetitive, with an uninteresting character. All that's changed in ACI. It seems like Ubisoft spent the first year of development of this gam... Read Full Review

    My favorite all-time games get the Blu-Ray treatment!

    God of War Collection (Ultimate Combo Pack)

    My favorite all-time games get the Blu-Ray treatment!

    God of War I & II blew me away. Yes I love Greek mythology, which probably slants my view, but as action games GOW has no peers in my eyes. The update to the PS3 and Blu-Ray does make a difference, recently playing thr... Read Full Review

    Uncharted 2: Among Thieves

    WOW! Uncharted 2 takes the gaming experience to a whole other level.

    Uncharted Drakes Fortune didn't blow me away, it was an average game at best, IMO. So I wasn't overly excited by the thought of #2. But as the game moved closer to release the more I read and watched video prevewis the... Read Full Review

    Marvel: Ultimate Alliance 2

    A nice move from Marvel UA I makes II a very good, different game.

    I'll be the first to admit, Marvel Ultimate Alliance didn't do too much for me. Yes it was great playing with all those characters I love so much, but game play and story line, not so much. Now UAII has flipped the swi... Read Full Review

    Metal Gear Solid 2: Sons of Liberty (Mega Hits!)

    The Great Snake truly makes his debut IMO.

    Metal Gear Solid 2 is one of the best games out for the PS2. It starts to tell the story of the "Patriots & Son's of Liberty" and bridge the earlier Metal Gears on it's way to 3 & 4. 2 is a bit of a mess story wise. Y... Read Full Review
