Silent Hill: Downpour
"Downpour" could've been one of the greatest horrors ever, but its problems demolished its potential.
Silent Hill : Downpour (Xbox 360) Concept: You play as Murphy Pendleton, a prisoner who seems to be quite an outcast for all the right reasons. He's the cliched movie character that you see in pri...
It lacks a good story, but "Rage" provides us with incredible combat, startling graphics, and great gameplay.
Rage (Xbox 360) Concept: The story behind "Rage" is far from original. You play as a survivor of the apocalypse, who wakes up after a very long period of time in solitude. You enter the wastelands...
Driver: San Francisco
"Driver : SF" takes a long time to get used to, because of its style, but once you do, it's an absolute blast.
*May contain mild spoilers* Driver : San Francisco (Xbox 360) Concept: The last game of the series that I played quite a lot was "Driver 2" on the original Playstation (though I did briefly pla...
Madden NFL 12
EA has done it again, providing us with false hopes of improvements and some flashy (and totally ineffective) changes.
*I am going to change the layout of my review just this one time, because I find it necessary to bring forth the issues in a much more organized manner (as opposed to a few long paragraphs)* Madden...
"L.A. Noire" is a game that will entertain just about anyone, but it's also in need of some improvements.
L.A. Noire (Xbox 360) Concept: Thinking back to even my earliest days of gaming, I don't recall ever playing a game that is anything like "L.A. Noire". I've played the occasional "investigation" t...
I had unhealthily high expectations for this sequel, and yet somehow, Valve managed to exceed them.
Portal 2 (Xbox 360) Concept: The story in the original "Portal" game was certainly great, but it was really not a concept of the game that was meant to be focused on. Getting used to how the whole...
Dead Space 2
The sequel to one of the more intense games of this generation is here, and it proves itself worthy of its nametag.
Dead Space 2 (Xbox 360) Concept: The sequel to one of the most powerful games I have ever played is finally here. And believe me, it is great. The game starts out in a completely new setting. Rath...
James Bond 007: Blood Stone
While it has its issues, "Blood Stone" is still an incredibly enjoyable adventure that shouldn't be missed
Blood Stone 007 (Xbox 360) Concept: I am going to admit from the beginning that I haven't played a 007 game in a long time. I think the last one was either "Agent Under Fire" or "Nightfire", both ...
Problems are routine almost immediately in this disaster of a football game.
Backbreaker (Xbox 360) Concept: I'm not sure how well this review is going to be liked/recommended, but if I'm going to review a game, I'm going to tell the truth rather than attempt to get thumb...
Call of Duty: Black Ops
With a great story, and awesome online multiplayer, "Black Ops" is a winner, despite some noticeable issues.
Call of Duty: Black Ops (Xbox 360) Concept: "Black Ops" had a lot to live up to, and deservingly so. The series has been so successful, that each new launch brings out the insanity in more and more...
Medal of Honor
The campaign is a big letdown, but "Medal of Honor" has a multiplayer that is quite unique.
Medal of Honor (Xbox 360) Concept: "Medal of Honor" had a lot to live up to. I don't mean that as a comparison to the other big war oriented game franchises. What I mean is that this game was over...
Madden NFL 11
Take Madden 10, update the rosters, and pull out the core mechanics that make it so great - That's Madden 11.
Madden NFL 11 (Xbox 360) Concept: Once again, EA is back at it with the newest addition to the long running Madden franchise. Does it live up to expectations? To put it simply - no. As much as I h...
Red Dead Redemption
Rockstar has simply crafted a masterpiece out of what I thought was a dead western theme.
"Red Dead: Redemption" (Xbox 360) Concept: The concept in "Red Dead: Redemption" is truly one of the game's best features. It is, from my knowledge, a very accurate portrayal of western life in th...
Green Day: Rock Band
"Green Day: Rock Band" is an absolute blast, and a must have for fans, both of their new AND old.
Green Day: Rock Band (Xbox 360) Storyline: So "Rock Band" is back with their newest installment in a series that has gone WAY overboard. 'Music/rhythm' is a game genre that has lost a lot of popul...
Though it has its positive qualities, "Rock Revolution" is ultimately overpowered by its constant problems.
Rock Revolution (Xbox 360) Storyline: "Rock Revolution" is Konami's attempt at matching up against the "Rock Band" and "Guitar Hero" series. Now, let me start off by saying this - it is not ALL ba...
Left 4 Dead 2: The Passing
It is certainly an entertaining DLC that brings forth plenty of new material, but it also has its problems.
Left 4 Dead 2: The Passing (Xbox 360 [Add-on]) Storyline: I think that the storyline is where the games' problems are most noticeable. Had I not known anything about the DLC prior to the purchase,...
It suffers from tech issues throughout, but the game certainly is suspenseful, and manages to get by with a solid story.
Metro 2033 (Xbox 360) Storyline: Though "Metro 2033" had significant technical issues that made me want to take my Xbox, go on my roof, and throw it onto the concrete (at times), the storyline was...
Grand Theft Auto IV
Arguments about how good this game is seems to be a notorious routine, and I know exactly why.
Grand Theft Auto IV (Xbox 360) Storyline: In all previous installments of the series, the storyline has been the weakness. They have NEVER been strong, and rely on the intense pleasure you get fr...
As a huge horror movie/game fan, I felt obligated to trying this one out. Unfortunately, it was not as I expected.
Saw (Xbox 360) Storyline: "Saw" is a game that one would expect to be based heavily on its ability to display a horrifying story. I mean, isn't that the normal mindset going into a horror game? I ...
Though it may not have the greatest storyline for an RPG, it's still one really good game.
Borderlands (Xbox 360) Storyline: RPG's are well-known for having quality storylines that can embrace the gamer and keep him/her into the game. "Borderlands", however, is an exception to that. Is ...
Portal: Still Alive
When a game manages to successfully incorporate five different genres, you know that there is a lot to look forward to.
Portal: Still Alive (Xbox 360 Arcade) Storyline: First of all, I want to mention that this game's storyline is exactly the same as the original "Portal". The "Still Alive" edition was added to the...
Left 4 Dead 2
It seems that sequels always have trouble living up to the original. Fortunately, Valve made sure this didn't happen.
*First and foremost - I want to apologize for the tardiness of this review. I promised it a while ago, and never followed through with writing one. I am very sorry, but numerous personal issues have g...
Saints Row 2 (Collector's Edition)
"Saints Row 2" isn't "GTA IV", but its wacky ideas are presented so well that it is more addictive.
Saints Row 2 (Xbox 360) Storyline: Well, I never played the original of the series, but I didn't feel that I needed to by any means. The storyline in "Saints Row 2" was just so predictably bland a...
Left 4 Dead: Crash Course
Though it's an overpriced add-on, as well as a campaign that is very similar to Death Toll, this still has the L4D rush!
Left 4 Dead: Crash Course - ADD ON (Xbox 360) Storyline: The story in this quick little add-on is, like always, very simple. It takes place right after the ending of the "No Mercy" campaign. If y...
"The Darkness" has one of the strangest, most mysterious storylines ever - and it's absolutely genius.
The Darkness (Xbox 360) Storyline: Like I said in my opening statement, this game has such an awesomely weird storyline. It is so far out there, but so brilliant at the same time. Every minute, yo...
Battlefield: Bad Company
Good online multiplayer, along with some insanely awesome special effects, make up for the short/forgettable campaign.
Battlefield: Bad Company (Xbox 360) Storyline: Though I picked this game up not expecting much from a storyline, realizing that I was pretty much accurate is always a bit of a letdown. It's not ne...
Turning Point: Fall of Liberty (Collector's Edition)
Though it definitely has its "broken" aspects, this game is not NEARLY as bad as people make it out to be.
Turning Point: Fall of Liberty (Xbox 360) Storyline: The storyline in "Turning Point: Fall of Liberty" is unlike any I have ever encountered in my life. It is an idea of "what if?" based on World ...
Madden NFL 10
This year's "Madden" is not just good, it's the best in the series. It totally rocks.
Madden NFL 10 (Xbox 360) Storyline: "Madden" is back with no big concept improvements. Every mode from last year's game is still there, but nothing else is really added. However, there IS now an o...
This is an excellent third-person shooter with a great storyline and gruesome visuals -- though it has it's faults.
Dead Space (Xbox 360) Storyline: Time and time again I have said that storyline is the most important aspect of horror games. Basically, if you're trying to make a game in the genre, and the story...
"Fallout 3" can only be classified as one thing -- game of the year for 2009.
Fallout 3 (Xbox 360) Storyline: So of course, since this game is a role-playing game, the story is what you make it to be. But the main idea is that you, along with a small community of survivors,...
Alone in the Dark
Though it was still very fun, this game had remarkable potential that was shot down by ridiculous technical issues.
Alone in the Dark (Xbox 360) Storyline: I honestly do believe that this game would have been absolutely horrid if it weren't for its embracing and emotional storyline. That is always a great thing...
This is truly one of the most unique games to date, and it succeeds on so many different levels. Buy it.
Mirror's Edge (Xbox 360) Storyline: EA does an excellent job keeping a well-balanced storyline, but also coming to the obvious realization that the game should not focus too much on it, but inste...
Left 4 Dead
As long as you have Xbox Live (and you love beating up zombies, of course), this is one of the best games you will find.
Left 4 Dead (Xbox 360) Storyline: The storyline in this game is, well, non-existent. To be honest, there really is no major storyline. But that doesn't necessarily mean that the game's concept is...
The Orange Box
Did I like this game? Put it this way: I cried when I completed the whole game. No sarcasm involved.
The Orange Box (Xbox 360) Storyline: Well there are actually five games included in one, if you didn't already know. The first game is the sequel to the phenomenal groundbreaking experience of 'H...
Condemned: Criminal Origins
Although a bit sketchy, this is one of the scariest games of all time.
Storyline: This game is pretty much based on its fantastic storyline. It's ridiculously scary, and keeps you on the edge of your seat until the credits roll. You play as a crime scene (CSI) investig...
Silent Hill: Homecoming
"Silent Hill: Homecoming" is, without a doubt, the most underrated game of 2008.
Silent Hill: Homecoming (Xbox 360) Storyline: Here is basically how the story goes (simple): You (Alex) search for clues about the strange occurences that have been going on in Silent Hill (just ...
For $3, I am impressed. It's just as stupid as I expected, and yet somehow is quite addicting in its own unique way.
Pocketbike Racer (Xbox 360) Storyline: There's no storyline in this game. You just jump on a bike and race employees and burgers around a one of five tracks while shooting missiles at them. It's ...
Prey (Collector's Edition)
A slow-paced storyline is a turnoff for impatient gamers, but "Prey" needs to be given a chance.
Prey (Xbox 360) Storyline: When I think aliens, I think of innocent people getting sucked up into a spaceship and doing whatever they possibly can to prevent themselves from getting their brains ...
