LEGO Star Wars
Lego Star Wars as very simple, but fun. A true treat for Star Wars and Lego fans.
There are so many trashy licensed properties out there, that it’s easy to get cynical about them. But every once in a while, one of them comes along and hits the spot. Lego Star Wars is one of thos...
Star Wars: Republic Commando
Republic Commando is fun, fast-paced, and authentic, but it's not outstanding in any way. It's also fairly short.
Republic Commando is a different kind of Star Wars game. You can see this from the moment that it starts up. Instead of the Star Wars theme with the scrolling text, the game begins with a foreboding...
Doom 3: Resurrection of Evil
A lot of the luster and novelty have worn off, but this expansion pack is still easy to recommend for fans of Doom 3.
Doom 3: Resurrection of Evil is generally what you would expect of an expansion pack. The good news is, it’s a lot more of the same action that made up Doom 3. The bad news is, it’s a lot more of th...
Tom Clancy's Splinter Cell Chaos Theory
The single player is by far the best of the series, and co-op is pure ecstasy --- if you can actually get it to work.
After being disappointed by Pandora Tomorrow’s thoroughly mediocre single player campaign, I was highly skeptical of this title. However, Chaos Theory is vastly improved over its predecessors in ever...
Project: Snowblind is a fun and exciting romp, while it lasts
Project: Snowblind provides a fun, fast-paced campaign that makes for an exciting but short-lived romp. The game also has a cool setting and some nice style to go along with the action. It’s a prett...
You sir, are no Grand Theft Auto
This game reminds me so much of "Alice". It's a classic case of style defeating substance. It’s not a bad game, per se, but it is plagued by overly simplistic gameplay and unimaginative mission desi...
Neighbours from Hell
Neighbors from Hell is a great idea that is executed remarkably well. The game is just way too short.
Neighbors from Hell is a game for the mean-natured, sadistic bastard in all of us. The game effectively captures the spirit of a Bugs Bunny cartoon by giving you opportunities to play annoying and of...
With its huge, open environments and unique, fast-paced combat, Tribes: Vengeance a must have for PC gamers
“Tribes: Vengeance” had the misfortune of being a great shooter that came out in the middle of a flood of great shooters. This quality title was lost amongst UT2K4, Half-Life 2, Painkiller, Doom 3, ...
Shadow Vault isn't a bad game, but it probably should have been a budget title.
If you are considering buying Shadow Vault, then it’s probably because you are a big fan of tactical combat games or turn-based RPG's like Fallout. If that’s the case, then you probably are willing t...
"Sacred" stands out from other hack-and-slash RPG's in a few ways, like its nice visuals and huge, open-ended world.
Sacred is a fun game. How Dungeon Siege could score higher than this game, I have no idea. I’m not really much of a fan of Diablo-style games, because they are usually so repetitive and unrewarding....
Full Spectrum Warrior
If you're looking for a unique and authentic military simulation, then give Full Spectrum Warrior a try.
Full Spectrum Warrior provides a very refreshing and unique perspective on realistic, modern, small scale warfare. Normally, this would be the realm of first person shooters. However, these types of...
Neverwinter Nights: Shadows of Undrentide
"Shadows of Undrentide" adds some minor improvements to the core game, and provides a quality single player campaign.
It is clear when playing "Shadows of Undrentide" that Bioware listened to the criticisms of the core game, "Neverwinter Nights". The faults of that game have not been eliminated, but they have at lea...
Tom Clancy's Splinter Cell: Pandora Tomorrow
The single player portion of this game is short, sloppy, and disappointing.
Splinter Cell: Pandora Tomorrow, to me, still ranks as one of the Top 5 PC games in terms of graphics. It's a beautiful game that is loaded with detail in every area. Other than that, it is a disapp...
The Chronicles of Riddick: Escape From Butcher Bay - Developer's Cut
The game's short length is easily offset by its quality, price, and excellent "commentary mode".
Chronicles of Riddick is one of those games that combines lots of elements, but isn’t really outstanding at any one of them. But the game has a great pace, a lot of action variety, and it always keep...
Tron 2.0 is a crappy first person shooter with an incredible presentation
Tron 2.0 is a beautiful game with a dazzling style and a somewhat interesting story. Other than that, it is a total letdown. The gameplay is very poorly balanced and archaic, not to mention frustrat...
Painkiller: Battle out of Hell
"Battle out of Hell" alternates between greatness and mediocrity. It's worth playing for the great parts.
"Battle out of Hell” changes up the Painkiller formula a bit and offers 8 new levels and 2 boss battles. Some levels are shorter and smaller than the levels in the original, and they generally have l...
Vietcong is ugly as hell, but it's challenging and very unique.
Vietcong makes a pretty bad first impression on you. It's an ugly game, and it's quite hard to get used to its peculiar style of gameplay. Vietcong isn't a stealth game. It's not a pure action game...
Medal of Honor Pacific Assault
Pacific Assault is worth a look for its good points, but it has some major annoyances too.
Medal of Honor: Pacific Assault, at times, has some excellent action, and these are the times that make it worth playing. Unfortunately, it has a handful of really bad sequences, and the most annoyin...
Vampire: The Masquerade - Bloodlines
Vampire: The Masquerade -- Bloodlines is a terrific RPG that is hampered by some technical flaws.
I think that the Gamespot reviewer expected to play “Half-Life with Vampires” instead of a role-playing game, because that’s what the review reads like. “Vampire: The Masqerade – Bloodlines” is not a...
Call of Duty
Call of Duty is a rip-off length five hour game that does little more than rehash "Medal of Honor: Allied Assault".
The endless praise heaped upon this overrated ripoff mystifies me. It has quite possibly the shortest single player campaign of any game on the market. The graphics are average at best, and the game...
Grand Theft Auto III
GTA 3 is a great game that would have been almost perfect if it hadn't been so sadistically hard.
After playing this game, it's easy for me to see why it has become so legendary, and why it has spawned two massive, high-selling sequels. This is the ultimate immersive video game simulation. Liber...
Despite a few of parts that don't work, Half-Life 2 is a fantastic-looking game that is easy to recommend.
For the first half of this game, I was ready to anoint it the best action game ever made. Everything just works so well. The gameplay is perfectly balanced, the mystery in the story builds, and ever...
Age of Wonders II: The Wizard's Throne
Age of Wonders 2 is a highly addictive mixture of high-level strategy and detailed tactics.
There aren't enough good turn-based games out there, but there is at least one that is superior: "Age of Wonders 2". I found this game to be as challenging, enjoyable, and addictive as my favorite tur...
"The Suffering" makes a great presentation, but at its core, it's a crappy action game.
The Suffering makes an unforgettable first impression on you. The setting is a dismal prison island, haunted by the ghosts and demons who have been generated by the island's ugly history of crimes an...
Icewind Dale II
Icewind Dale 2 mixes little bit of role-playing with some unforgettable hack-and-slash action.
Icewind Dale 2 was one of those games that kind of slipped under the radar screen a couple of years ago. This is too bad, because this is a really fun hack-and-slash game. As a bonus, it has some ni...
Overall, Doom 3 is a great game because it has great looks and thick atmosphere.
I have never been a huge Doom fan, and I haven’t been anticipating this game for 5 years I didn’t buy it looking for something revolutionary. I just wanted a game with great graphics to push my new ...
XIII is a potentially great game that is ruined by a bunch of terrible stealth sequences and a crappy save system.
I really liked this game at first. It's very stylish, it's very cool to look at, it has a great, unique soundtrack, and it starts off with an intriguing story. Then, when I got halfway through, some...
Beyond Good & Evil
Beyond Good and Evil has very solid gameplay, fantastic style, and an interesting story.
Beyond Good and Evil isn’t just an RPG or just an adventure game. It combines a lot of different gameplay elements, like stealth, fighting, puzzle solving, and hovercraft racing. All of them are fai...
Star Trek: Elite Force II
At its core, Elite Force 2 is a mediocre shooter, but its story and presentation make it worth playing.
This game is a mediocre shooter at its core, but it ends up being good because it has a good story, and it is a good authentic Star Trek game. The gameplay is as derivative as a loaf of bread and...
Dead to Rights
Dead to Rights is fun and unique, and worth playing if you're looking for something different.
Dead to Rights is a fun game that is something different. It’s not very pretty and it’s not all that polished either, but I still had a pretty good time playing it. You can’t compare it to anoth...
Sometimes, Beyond Divinity is creative and unique. Other times, it is just plain boring.
I like Larian studios because they are a small-time studio that gets no PR, so it’s not real easy to write this mediocre review for this game. I loved Divine Divinity and I gave it and 8.8 score. I ...
Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time
Prince of Persia for the PC is good, but you may want to play a console version if you have one.
Prince of Persia must have been a fantastic game on a Gamecube, PS2, or X-Box. On the PC, it shows signs of greatness, but the awful controls and camera movements make it too frustrating to play for a...
Painkiller does "mindless action" as well as any game has ever done.
I almost think of Painkiller like two games. One of them is pure, addictive, incredible-looking, adrenaline-pumping action Nirvana. The other is a dull and sometimes frustrating game when Painkiller...
Thief: Deadly Shadows
"Deadly Shadows" is a great stealth game with a great story and incredible atmosphere.
Could it be? That the same studio and publisher that made “Deus Ex: Invisible War” also made “Thief: Deadly Shadows?” Apparently, it is, since the former was a flawed and mediocre effort, and the la...
Manhunt is extremely violent, but it does have lots of good qualities other than that.
Overall, I found Manhunt to be a pretty enjoyable stealth game. It has very simple and reliable mechanics, and it’s very easy to pick up and play. Thus, it manages to be somewhat fun by avoiding a l...
Thank you, Far Cry, for raising the bar, and showing how great PC games can be.
Wow. That's all I have to say. Far Cry has raised the bar for everyone else now. Dramatically. The graphics are gorgeous. The environments massive, open and immersive. The AI is efficient and ca...
Runaway: A Road Adventure
"Runaway" starts of great, but it loses steam in the middle and gets pretty boring by the end.
I loved this game at first, but after I got a while into it, I got extremely bored with it. The game looks great and starts off with some interesting puzzles, but in the middle it starts moving at a ...
Chrome is highly underrated and unique first person shooter that nobody played.
This is a great game that nobody played. Chrome is not flawless, but it’s just plain fun. There might be some pieces missing, but the most important stuff is done right. Chrome is a first-person s...
Grand Theft Auto: Vice City
GTA: Vice City is a masterpiece of a game that you could spend months playing around with if you wanted.
This is a great example of how you take a great game and make it better. Grand Theft Auto: Vice City is an excellent port of the PS2 version, and it stands out as one of the best games for the PC in ...
Freedom Fighters is a great game whose only fault is its short length.
Freedom Fighters is a great game, and the only problem is that there isn't enough of it. The game is very simple, but it somehow just manages to be nonstop action and fun. The price for this game ha...
