The biggest thing that Armed and Dangerous has going for it is its wacky sense of humor. That and its story. Everything else is kind of average. You play as Roman, the leader of a group of bandits called “The Lionhe... Read Full Review0 of 2 users found the following review helpful
Mafia has a great story and great presentation. It's sadistically and insanely hard in some parts though.
Mafia is a great game. It looks beautiful, it has incredible style, and a fantastic story. Its gun battles are thrilling, even though they sometimes get really frustrating. It's too bad that there is no difficulty sli... Read Full Review0 of 1 users found the following review helpful
If you were like me, then you have heard about what a great game Halo is, but you couldn’t figure out what was so great about it or what made it so special. It first glance, it looks so ordinary. You look at the box an... Read Full Review2 of 4 users found the following review helpful
You don’t have to be a Star Wars fan to appreciate what a great RPG this is, but it can’t hurt. Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic is the best RPG that I have played at least since Baldurs Gate 2, and it is the best... Read Full Review1 of 6 users found the following review helpful
The game is beautiful to look at and listen too. It's too bad that the combat is so simple and "blah".
In general, the Gamespot review sums it up pretty good -- this game looks incredible and sounds wonderful, but it has so-so gameplay. This is mainly due to the combat, which has its moments, but is somewhat weak. F... Read Full Review3 of 4 users found the following review helpful
I have seen the description “Deus Ex Lite” for this game, and for the most part, it’s a very accurate. This game has merits that make it worth playing, but it’s still vastly inferior to the first game, which I gave a 9.... Read Full Review5 of 12 users found the following review helpful
I call this: "Testosterone: The Game". "Red Faction 2" is a very enjoyable, action-packed, and somewhat mindless shooter full of big weapons and lots of explosions. Were it not for the mediocre graphics and short lengt... Read Full Review2 of 2 users found the following review helpful
Unreal 2 looks incredible and has a lot of cool weapons, but the gameplay is so-so, and level design is mediocre.
Overall, Unreal 2 is a decent run-and-gun shooter that is at least worth picking up in the bargain bin. It doesn’t have a lot of substance or originality to it, but if you are an FPS player, then you are going to enjoy ... Read Full Review2 of 2 users found the following review helpful
If there was an award for most overrated game of the year, then Max Payne 2 would certainly be my pick. It has some great moments, and it has some great qualities, but it has some glaring flaws that nobody has mentioned... Read Full Review1 of 1 users found the following review helpful
Gamespot's review does not quite describe what a terrible game this is. Lionheart has a very interesting premise, and it uses a very cool roleplaying system, but it is a poor game in every aspect. How you could take su... Read Full Review5 of 6 users found the following review helpful
Temple of Elemental Evil is a very promising game, but it lacks some basics. For better or worse, this is unlike any game you have ever played. This is a true, nut-and-bolt recreation of pen and paper Dungeons and Drag... Read Full Review0 of 2 users found the following review helpful
I wish that “Divine Divinity” had won RPG of the year on 2002, because it was the best. When you play this game, you can tell that the developers are RPG fans, and they truly know what makes a great RPG. If you have ev... Read Full Review0 of 1 users found the following review helpful
Arx Fatalis is JoWood’s dark-themed 1st-person RPG: The game is set in a dark world where the sun has burnt out, and the inhabitants of Arx have moved underground to survive. The different races -- humans, goblins, dw... Read Full Review6 of 6 users found the following review helpful
I agree with pretty much everything in the Gamespot review. This is not just a rehash of Jedi Outcast. This is a great game!! If you like Star Wars or any of the Star Wars action games that have come out, then Jedi Ac... Read Full Review2 of 3 users found the following review helpful
Yuck This might have been a great game: if it had been released about six years ago. Schizm: Mysterious Journey is a Myst clone that came out about five years too late. “Clone” is a bit too much of a compliment. “W... Read Full Review3 of 7 users found the following review helpful
The game is gorgeous and sounds awesome. Gameplay wise, it feels like "Jack of all trades, master of none."
Warcraft 3 is usually called a real-time strategy game with some RPG elements. I found that the game combines a lot of elements, but in a mediocre way. The strategy in the game ends up being kind of simple and shallow,... Read Full Review1 of 4 users found the following review helpful
I’ll start by reiterating the introductory line of Gamespot’s review. This game gets EVERYTHING right. There is nothing ugly, klunky, or unfun about it. Freedom Force is the closest you can get to stepping inside of a... Read Full Review1 of 3 users found the following review helpful
Dungeon Siege looks nice, but it's linear, devoid of story, and mind-numbingly repetitive. I couldn't finish the game.
Dungeon Siege is a simple hack-and-slash game, like a 3D version of Diablo. It is a good game to pick up for maybe a half hour or hour at a time and mess around with for a while, but it gets dull before too long. This ... Read Full Review13 of 15 users found the following review helpful
The single player campaign for “Neverwinter Nights” is fun and enjoyable, but you can’t help but be frustrated by thinking about what it could have been. This game could have been a perfect 10, like Baldurs Gate 2 or th... Read Full Review3 of 9 users found the following review helpful
Splinter Cell is simply the most satisfying stealth game that I have played since "Thief". In fact, I like it better in some ways. You can see how that classic stealth game influenced Splinter Cell. The game play is e... Read Full Review1 of 1 users found the following review helpful
Chalk me up as another gamer who just doesn’t get it. If this is all that it takes for a first-person shooter to earn such high praise, then the genre is in serious need of an overhaul. MOHAA certainly gets a 10 fo... Read Full Review3 of 8 users found the following review helpful
Two and a half years after buying “Deus Ex”, I am playing it again for the fourth time. Nothing has, or ever will diminish my love for this spectacular game. It’s impossible to overstate what a great and unique game it... Read Full Review10 of 11 users found the following review helpful
If you can get past the learning curve, you'll find that System Shock 2 is a terrifying and unique game.
I started playing this game 2 times and quit because I got so frustrated early on. It took me years to finally finish it and I can say that I am glad that I finally did. Every sci-fi horror game that I play is going to... Read Full Review2 of 5 users found the following review helpful
Postal 2 is more of an anti-social behavior simulator than an actual game. If you accept this, then you'll like it.
At the risk at being judgmental, I wonder if Gamespot gave Postal 2 a low score to cover their butts and avoid the controversy of plugging such a violent game. The final product is actually amusing, and fun to play. Th... Read Full Review2 of 5 users found the following review helpful
