    In Soviet Russia, game play you. ...No, really, in this case it totally does.

    Call of Duty: Black Ops

    In Soviet Russia, game play you. ...No, really, in this case it totally does.

    Pros: Addictive multiplayer • Technically polished graphics and audio • Clean and precise controls. Cons: Preposterous story • Chaotic pacing • Completely linear progression constantly demands relinquishing controls •... Read Full Review

    Lute Hero: Revolution. Reloaded. III.

    Pros: Easy to get into; streamlined interface and innovative take on menus; the art style and direction are great; admirable effort from A-list voice actors; some of the side quests are quirky and occasionally fun. Co... Read Full Review

    Is it Medieval in here, or is it just me?

    Assassin's Creed

    Is it Medieval in here, or is it just me?

    The more we seem to want to know about the Middle Ages, the less we seem to understand them. According to Renaissance scholar Glareanus, the Middle Ages was a era when "honorable study and fine scholarship were lying asl... Read Full Review

    Prince of Persia

    Make up your mind, already!

    The only universal truth in gaming is that sequels are the only constant factor in the ongoing development of new games. Since they're based on existing intellectual properties, they require less creativity to produce th... Read Full Review

    "King's Bounty" is definitely worthy of the mantle of its predecessor - assuming you can get past its quirks.

    King's Bounty: The Legend

    "King's Bounty" is definitely worthy of the mantle of its predecessor - assuming you can get past its quirks.

    "King's Bounty" is definitely worthy of the mantle of its predecessor - assuming you can get over its quirks. Pros: a huge world to explore; tons of interesting creatures to meet and grind into bone-dust; challenging ... Read Full Review

    Soviet kitsch.

    Command & Conquer: Red Alert 3

    Soviet kitsch.

    Pros: colorful graphics; easy-to-learn interface; Tim Curry; Autumn Reeser Cons: Lack of any coherence or self-consistency; unit abilities are more of a liability than an asset; bone-headed unit pathfinding and AI; bord... Read Full Review

    Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare

    Easily one of the better installments in the series, Call of Duty 4 is a visually arresting tour-de-force.

    Let's get one thing squared away first: I am a card-carrying cynic when it comes to video-games. As such, it is my prerogative to automatically discard 99 percent of the software that hits the market as "a waste of money... Read Full Review

    The fine line between realism and idiocy gets completely obliterated in Kojima's latest offering.

    Metal Gear Solid 3: Snake Eater

    The fine line between realism and idiocy gets completely obliterated in Kojima's latest offering.

    Let me start from afar with this one: when I pick up a product from the James Bond franchise, be it movie, book, or videogame, I know exactly what to expect. I will be barraged with plentiful firefights; villains so evil... Read Full Review

    Killzone: Liberation

    Despite minor imperfections, Killzone: Liberation sports a great presentation coupled with outstanding gameplay.

    If there is one lesson that can be learned from playing through Guerilla's Killzone: Liberation, it's that Dutch people hate Nazis. And, really, how could they not, given the brutality with which the Wehrmacht's war mach... Read Full Review

    What should have been an epic conclusion to this franchise ends up being a lukewarm offering.

    Warhammer 40,000: Dawn of War - Soulstorm

    What should have been an epic conclusion to this franchise ends up being a lukewarm offering.

    I am certain that Warhammer 40K Dawn of War: Soulstorm looked great on paper. Based on a successful, established franchise? Check. Open-ended campaign? Check. Nine distinct playable factions? Check. New units for every ... Read Full Review
