While its production values are top notch, Heavenly Swords length makes it impossible to recommend as more than a rental
Ever since its earliest footage was released, Heavenly Sword was compared by critics and gamers alike to the God of War series, earning the nickname, “Goddess of War.” Thankfully, there is enough uniq...
Perfect for anybody looking for a challenge.
Mercury Meltdown is made by Ignition Entertainment and is the sequel to one of last year’s most overlooked games, Mercury. While critics acclaimed it, Mercury never got the fanfare it deserved. Mercur...
Twisted Metal: Black
Twisted Metal: Black is an excellent, challenging frag fest that will suck you in and won't let go.
The main difference however is that each car has one devasting special weapon. Sweettooth can transform into a giant robot and shoot rapid fire missiles. Junkyard Dog can swing a long chain around the...
Hot Shots Golf Fore!
Although it may appear a little old-school, HSG Fore is the most fun that you will have with a golf game.
Hot Shots Golf is the 4th game of its name from Sony, and if it looks a little like its predecesors, well..., it is. That isn't exactly a bad thing however, as HSGF's old school approach fits perfectl...
Cold Winter is a vastly underappreciated FPS that everybody should at least look at.
The worst part of Cold Winter is the audiovisual components, which are still good. The great sound effects are brought down by bad voice acting, and the superb graphics are brought down by an unsteady...
Beautiful graphics and addictive gameplay can't mask the fact this Pure is as shallow as a kiddie pool.
Wipeout Pure is one of the best pure racing games on any console, but it is so damn shallow that it is worth nothing more than a long weekend rental. The core gameplay mechanics have you choosing one ...
Tomb Raider: Legend
Even though some of it is copied off of other games, Legend redeems the series with superb presentation and platforming.
After Angel of Darkness, the Tomb Raider series had nowhere to go but up. Fortunately, Edios did not just slap out another half-assed piece of crap starring a hot girl. Legend is made up of two parts:...
The Matrix: Path of Neo
This game tries to revive the Matrix series, but all it really does is make the series worse.
Matrix: Path of Neo was supposed to save a falling franchise plagued by the horridity of Enter the Matrix. This game is a little better than predecesor, but actually makes the series worse by proving ...
S.L.A.I.: Steel Lancer Arena International
S.L.A.I. = S.tupid L.ightning-paced A.nime for I.diots
At first, SLAI had a lot of things going for it. It seemed like it would turn out to be a version of Armored Core with actual fighting, or the next big online robot brawler. It turns out that SLAI fai...
Ratchet & Clank (Platinum)
Ratchet & Clank combines action and platforming almost perfectly.
Back in Q3 2001 when Ratchet & Clank was released, platforming had reached its stride. The last breath of the PS1 was made up of platformers and party games for a good portion. Ratchet is half action,...
Top Gun: Combat Zones
An arcade-ish flight simulator just isn't a good idea for consoles.
Top Gun has nothing to do with the old classic movie, and it kind of sucks. The gameplay itself is solid, but the game is very repetitive, has super long load times, and is surprisingly hard. There ar...
Mario Kart DS (DS Bundle)
It isn't a system-seller, but Mario Kart DS is still the best racer on the DS so far.
MArio Kart DS has only 9 characters, which is a disappointment, and only 3 classes. They are all varied and have their advantages and disadvantages. The graphics are cartoony and colorful, and the fra...
X-Men Legends is a good alternative to the more violent hack 'n slash games out there, but don't expect too much.
In a day where there is an overabundance of crappy violent games, an X-Men based action RPG is almost a relief. It isn't a button masher completely, but do not expect some strategic experience either....
Even though it has a darker tone, Deadlocked contains the same great action and humor as the rest of the Ratchet games.
Deadlocked is the last Ratchet game of the current gerneration, and while it isn't as compelling as Up Your Arsenal, it is still an outstanding third person shooter that finds the perfect mix of humor...
Metroid fan or not, this is one of the GBA's best when it comes to action.
There is great action in Fusion; there are also intutitive controls that take advantage of Samus' abilities. The boss battles are fabulous. The storyis great and you get new powers and stuff at a good...
This game could have used some steroids.
Juiced was supposed to come out two years ago, and if it did it would be much better because it is like 2 or 3 years behind Burnout, GT, and Need for Speed. The core gameplay is copied off of NFS, exc...
Prince of Persia: Warrior Within
Warrior Within is a big disappointment from Sands of Time, not with its gameplay, but with its atmosphere.
There are good graphics and great audio in thiss game. The voice acting rules and there is a good framerate. The gampelay is vastly improved over Sands of Time, but sadly, there is few puzzles and pla...
Genji: Dawn of the Samurai
If it was longer and didn't focus so much on story, then Genji could be one of the best.
Genji is a samurai game based on ancient feudal Japan. You tak the role as a samurai, and the rest of the story is very deep and interesting. The only thing is that every minute or two there is a cuts...
Prince of Persia: The Two Thrones
The Two Thrones manages to find the perfect medium between the beautiful Sands of Time and the dark Warrior Within.
In the holiday season of 2003, one superb, under-selling, underappreciated game was released. It came virtually out of nowhere; it was based on a semi-popular arcade game from the 80’s. The game was P...
World Soccer Winning Eleven 9
WS Winning Eleven 8 is good, but does not compare to the last Fifa title in terms of visuals, audio, or even gameplay.
Eleven 9 is the ninth game in Knomai's yearly soccer franchise, and this marks as the third to be released in the United States. Eleven 9 is noticeably the worst game in the series, because there is n...
25 to Life
Hey, at least it's better than all those other GTA wannabes!
25 to Life isn’t a particularly good game, but it is definitely better than almost all of those other GTA-wannabes. The most disappointing parts of this game are the audio and visual compartments. The...
24: The Game
Are TV-based games even worse than movie-based games? There's a good chance that they are.
24: The Game is a crappy game. I mean a really crappy game. There are three types of missions: action, driving, and minigames. There are few guns and the 3rd person aiming sucks, not to mention the fa...
Total Overdose: A Gunslinger's Tale in Mexico
It's as much fun as eating nachos and salsa while watching bull-wrestling. That could be a compliment or an insult.
Total Overdose is your typical Max Payne / GTA copy-off that does not provide much in the term of innovation, but has pretty solid gameplay. Total Overdose takes place in Mexico, and you have to hunt ...
Don't do drugs kids, or you'll end up like NARC!
NARC is a GTA inspired rip-off of a game. The characters models are decent, but the enviroments and cars look horrible. Add the face that everything is black, and you'll end up strainig your eyes. The...
187 Ride or Die
187 is a downright "crunky" game for all those wannabe gangstas out there.
The gameplay is knid of like Full Auto's but with crappyie graphics. They are actually pretty good, but there is so much grimy black stuff you can barely see and have to turn up the brightness. The fr...
50 Cent: Bulletproof
G Unit is is only thing keeping "Fity Sent: Bulitproooph" above the one range.
Easily said, 50 Cent: Bulletproof is the worst game of 2005 on consoles. The graphics are all blocky and dated, the framerate sucks, and the cut scenes keep freezing and skipping around. The soundtrac...
The main gameplay may want you to exit your PSP, but there is a sense of style to it that almost rejuvinates the game.
The gameplay in xit is box-pushing boring stuff with glitchy controls, a confusing interface, and just crappyness. It is boring, and it is very frusterating. In addition, there are massive load times ...
Psi-Ops: The Mindgate Conspiracy
What is more fun than using your ming to throw a gas can into a group of enemies and watching them fly everywhere?
Simply put, Psi-Ops: The Mindgate Conspiracy is Psychonauts for a mature audience. Both of those are excellent games that feature diverse physic powers that are executed well. In addition, both of the...
The SpongeBob SquarePants Movie
Spongebob Squarepants: The Movie is a good game for children and/or fans of the television series.
Spongebob isn't really a big [platformer inspired by the movie of the same name. It is actually a set of minigames that mostly do not have anything to do with the movie, or even the TV series in gener...
Pac-Man World 3
You may not like it too much, but this game will be cherished by the under-10 group.
I recently bought my little brother (age 7) this game for his birthday, and he absolutely loved it. I even had fun watching him. What amazed me the most was that, unlike other games, he never asked me...
Shadow the Hedgehog
This is what happens when a developer tries to make a children's series into GTA.
Shadow the Hedgehog is by far the worst game with a Hedgehog in its title yet. Shadow's graphics are actually pretty good, but the framerate is so horrible, that doesn't really matter. That's very str...
LowRider: Round the World
Lowrider is a very odd game that could have used some extra polish.
Lowrider is a game about cars, yet it has nothing to do with racing, customization, or even babes. Lowrider is, well... car bouncing. The whole game has you hitting buttons that appear on the screen j...
Super Smash Bros. Melee
Melee is an outstanding brawler and is possibly one of the top multiplayer games of all time.
To start it off, I'll say that Melee has great graphics and a superb soundtrack made better by non-repetitive sound effects. Heck, even the framerate is nearly perfect. Now that we've got that out of ...
Fantastic Four is far from fantastic. Actually, it's far from mediocrity.
Fantastic Four is based on the movie of the the same name that had cool special effects and was loaded with stars, but the actual storyline was underdeveloped and crappy. The best part of this game is...
Why do developers make games like Without Warning?!
When I heard about this gme, I said out loud, "What were they thinking?" There's a boring premise, and almost everyting is copied from other games. Worst of all, there was absolutely no advertising, n...
Peter Jackson's King Kong: The Official Game of the Movie
King Kong would of been one of the best games of this year if it wasn't one of the shortest also.
For this review, I'll call "Peter Jackson's King Kong: The Official Game of the Movie" King Kong to save space. First let's look at the presentation. The menu is good, the graphics are phenominal, but...
Project: Snowblind is a very good FPS for the PS2, but it could of been much better with an extra coat of paint or two.
Project: Snowblind by Eidos is an exceptional FPS, and at first, it looks like it will become a classic. You will soon find out however, that this game falls short at the end and could of definitely u...
Will you choose to save planet Vetka in a completely unoriginal FPS that is technically impressive?
To our finest commander, Our home planet of Vetka is being invaded by the evil Helghastians. Vetka is being torn to shreds by these menaces, and you my good friend, are our last hope. We need you t...
Star Wars: Battlefront II
Forget God of War and Resident Evil 4, Battlefront 2 is 2005's real king.
Star Wars Battlfront 2 does almost everything perfect. There are seven gameplay modes. Conquest is the traditional game from the first Battlefront. CTF 2-Flag is your traditional, grab their flag and ...
A wild west themed vampire FPS with no online play? Impossible!
Darkwatch is an exceptionally good First-person shooter that has you playing as Jericho Cross. Jericho is a member of the Darkwatch, a group of vigilante sheriffs, and a very “special” one, I might ad...
