    Donkey Kong has appeared in a few games over the years like Mario Party and Super Smash Bros, but Donkey Kong Country Returns has the big ape starring in his own game. DKCR resembles the classic DK ga...

    Halo: Reach

    Rated on September 25, 2010 by dracula_16

    Halo: Reach is a stellar game that shouldn't be missed by anyone who has an Xbox 360.

    The Halo franchise has taken the world by storm since its debut in 2001. Halo: Reach is the fourth main installment in the series, but in between those four games there has been one spin-off and an ex...

    LIMBO

    Rated on July 25, 2010 by dracula_16

    Limbo creates an exciting dreamlike experience, but this dream is over too quickly.

    Games that go for a minimalistic approach are either hit or miss. One look at Limbo in action is enough to figure out that it's a game with an endearing concept. Limbo takes a risky approach to game d...

    Dante's Inferno: Shinkyoku Jigoku-Hen

    Rated on February 12, 2010 by dracula_16

    It doesn't succeed at much, but it's hard not to appreciate what Dante's Inferno tries to do.

    Dante's Inferno is an action adventure game that's based on a fourteenth century poem called The Divine Comedy. You get to play as a catholic crusader named Dante. His girlfriend [Beatrice] has been k...

    Zombie Apocalypse is a perfect example of how you can ruin a good concept.

    Zombie apocalypse is a top-down shoot 'em up that is all about non-stop action. You play as one of four generic characters that have personalities you've seen a million times before, and you're tasked...

    'Splosion Man

    It's got problems, but the personality and level design are enough reasons to give this game a shot.

    'Splosion Man is a platforming game in which you play as a little orange guy who is able to do small explosions that act as the equivalent of jumping. Your goal is simple; make it to the end of each l...

    Wheelman

    Rated on April 06, 2009 by dracula_16

    Wheelman has some interesting concepts but most of them are smothered with unimpressive and/or frustrating gameplay.

    Games in the open world action genre carry the burden of being compared to crime centric games like Grand Theft Auto and Saints Row. This game has a few interesting ideas but most of them don't turn o...

    The House of the Dead: Overkill

    Rated on March 06, 2009 by dracula_16

    Fans of gory action will likely get a kick out of The House of the Dead: Overkill.

    Finding a shooter on the Wii that isn't terrible is like finding a needle in a big pile of haystacks. Praise the gaming deities because now we have House of the Dead: Overkill. It's a shooter that's v...

    Skate 2 is a solid attempt at a sequel but it has some issues that are impossible to ignore.

    The skateboarding video game genre was given a face full of ice water in 2007 after Skate came out, courtesy of EA. It changed what had been industry standards for many years, and it also added some n...

    Rated on December 10, 2008 by dracula_16

    Geometry Wars 2 triumphs over its predecessor in every way that matters.

    The first Geometry Wars was successful in the gameplay department largely because it never tried to be more than it actually was. All too often these days you find games loaded with gimmicks like over...

    Geometry Wars: Retro Evolved

    Rated on December 07, 2008 by dracula_16

    This is easily the best Xbox Live Arcade game out right now.

    Geometry Wars is a shoot 'em up that'll probably remind you of all the fond memories you had with this genre back in the day. First off, I'll let you know that I don't have an HDTV but you don't re...

    Skate is the first game to capture the essence of what Skateboarding is all about.

    Basically if you wanted to play a Skateboarding game for the last 7 or 8 years then your only choice has been to play something in the Tony Hawk franchise. Those games might as well not even exist any...

    Bioshock gets most things right but slips in a few key places.

    Bioshock was easily one of my most anticipated games of the year. People were raving about this game as if it was going to make the First-Person Shooter genre feel fresh again. Did Bioshock live up to...

    Rated on November 30, 2008 by dracula_16

    Rock Band is a great game that's capable of keeping you busy for months.

    To be blunt, Rock Band tries to be what Guitar Hero is not. If you're expecting a game with relentless difficulty for the guitar portions of every song then you'll be disappointed. While Guitar Hero 3...

    This is a game that you'll either love or hate.

    So yeah, let's get that out of the way first; if you already like/dislike past Mario Kart games then this game will do probably nothing to change your mind. As you can tell from the score I gave it, I...

    This game is strictly for NG fans; it's unlikely that anyone else will enjoy it.

    Ninja Gaiden 2 is a wildly inconsistent game. It feels as if it was rushed out the door. As a result of that it's not even close to being as good as the first NG; I ultimately consider it to be a disa...

    Fable 2 is like a small piece of turkey with a lot of mashed potatoes on the side.

    Fable 2 is a role playing game that puts a large emphasis on choices that you make. You could see a small hint of that in the first Fable but this time around it's much more fleshed out. You can choos...

    Pure is a solid first entry in a [potentially] new franchise.

    If the MX and Tony Hawk series were to mate then the offspring would probably resemble Pure. It takes an arcade racing style and combines that with an insane trick system, while staying true to its of...
