    Might not have reinvented the formula from the first, but Gears of War 2 is one hell of a ride.

    Gears of War 2

    Might not have reinvented the formula from the first, but Gears of War 2 is one hell of a ride.

    The first Gears of War was only my 2nd 360 game back when I first got a next gen console in 2007. It blew me away, just like everyone else. I still love that game. And while Gears of War 2 might not add a ton of new thin... Read Full Review

    Godfather 2 is a very fun game that could have been a truly great game with some much needed polish.

    I'm a huge fan of the Godfather movies, and loved the Godfather game. While the Godfather 2 is a very fun game, it could have been made a lot better with some key improvements. Gameplay- The gameplay in itself has not... Read Full Review
