    Treyarch has created the deepest, most profound campaign in the series, and the truest CoD since the first.

    Call of Duty: World at War

    Rated on December 16, 2010 by cricketboy2238

    Treyarch has created the deepest, most profound campaign in the series, and the truest CoD since the first.

    It seems odd that after the success of Call of Duty 4 that Activision would release another World War II-themed Call of Duty game. The future of Call of Duty is clearly in modern combat, CoD4 having r...

    Halo: Reach

    Rated on October 01, 2010 by cricketboy2238

    Halo: Reach is not just a nostalgic return to the familiar, it's the most refined and engaging game in the series.

    With Halo: Reach, Bungie has returned to the roots of the series in a very important way: they've rekindled interest one of the most epic stories in gaming. The campaign mode was where the passion liv...

    While not an extreme departure from the series' past, the Xbox 360 version shows that UT's gameplay works on the 360.

    Unreal Tournament III

    Rated on August 24, 2010 by cricketboy2238

    While not an extreme departure from the series' past, the Xbox 360 version shows that UT's gameplay works on the 360.

    While many of the pillars of PC gaming have been adapted to consoles, it seems intuitive that there are certain games that simply couldn't work on them... or are there? As someone who used to float ar...

    The best deal in gaming. Period.

    The Orange Box

    Rated on August 24, 2010 by cricketboy2238

    The best deal in gaming. Period.

    This is easily the greatest deal in gaming history, and considering that the game has become a Platinum Hit and has a new bargain-bin pricetag of $20 USD, there is zero reason not to own this game. ...

    Not exactly a fitting finale for one of the greatest video game trilogies in history, but stands well on its own.

    Halo 3

    Rated on July 20, 2010 by cricketboy2238

    Not exactly a fitting finale for one of the greatest video game trilogies in history, but stands well on its own.

    I'm not going to say I've always been on the Halo hype train, but thinking back at my first Halo experience with Halo: Combat Evolved on the PC, I can say it's one of my more nostalgic gaming moments....

    Project Gotham Racing 3

    Rated on February 06, 2007 by cricketboy2238

    Project Gotham Racing 3 is a fantasic game with great graphics and lasting appeal.

    Project Gotham Racing 3 is a fantastic game, and holds up like a champ against modern Xbox 360 games, despite being over a year old at the time of writing. It’s presentation and attention to detail is...

    Few times before have I seen such mastery of the craft where a game can excel so well at everything. A sure winner.

    Halo 2

    Rated on January 12, 2007 by cricketboy2238

    Few times before have I seen such mastery of the craft where a game can excel so well at everything. A sure winner.

    Halo has been the franchise to beat on the 6th generation of consoles. None have been regarded so highly, romantically, and none have come close to the kind of fanbase the game possesses. I’ve met few...

    Gears of War

    Rated on December 30, 2006 by cricketboy2238

    If you have an Xbox 360, you are required to own this game.

    There are few titles in any media that assure you that it will be the pioneer of what is to come. It amazes you and its peers alike. These are the titles that virtually all other similar titles will b...

    The shooting man's racer.

    TrackMania Sunrise

    Rated on January 26, 2006 by cricketboy2238

    The shooting man's racer.

    My game collection is, admittedly, mostly shooters. I don't know if it's in my blood or not, but every major shooter release gets the blood flowing and I kick it into high gear. My favorite games, whi...

    Battlefield 2: Special Forces is a solid expansion pack, but does little to justify its price.

    Battlefield 2: Special Forces

    Rated on January 17, 2006 by cricketboy2238

    Battlefield 2: Special Forces is a solid expansion pack, but does little to justify its price.

    Battlefield 2 was one of the biggest and most engaging shooters of 2005. Its addictive game play, system taxing graphics, and monstrous levels make it a tough game to look over for any PC shooter fan....

    Half-Life 2 doesn't do one thing right, it does everything right.  This is the most engaging first person shooter ever.

    Half-Life 2

    Rated on November 05, 2005 by cricketboy2238

    Half-Life 2 doesn't do one thing right, it does everything right. This is the most engaging first person shooter ever.

    Half-Life 2 is an amazing game, and that’s all you really need to know. It’s a perfect blend of all the things that have made first person shooters evolve on the PC platform. With that said, it’s no...

    Quake 4

    Rated on November 05, 2005 by cricketboy2238

    All things considered, Quake 4 is a great and solid first-person shooter that is sure to entertain.

    Quake 4 is a relatively old-school, yet highly entertaining first-person shooter with production values that rival that of big budget films. Why waste $7 + Beverages on the Doom movie for roughly two...
