    Jason Bourne's game debut is a kind of dumb yet fun experience thats over before it starts.

    Robert Ludlum's The Bourne Conspiracy

    Jason Bourne's game debut is a kind of dumb yet fun experience thats over before it starts.

    The Bourne Conspiracy an action game that for the most part is based on the first film, the Bourne Identity. No reference to the other two films is made and this fact is the main reason for the game's biggest shortcoming... Read Full Review

    Worms fans will still have fun but this is ultimately another step backwards for the series.

    Worms: A Space Oddity

    Worms fans will still have fun but this is ultimately another step backwards for the series.

    Worms is a long running action/strategy franchise in which, traditionally, your team of four or more worms attempt to destroy opposing teams with a variety of silly and devastating weapons. This new version, dubbed A Spa... Read Full Review

    Lost: Via Domus

    The Lost vibe is here in buckets, but the uninspired gameplay hinders this extremely short experience. For fans only.

    Lost: Via Domus is a game based on the hit ABC show (duh) and despite having this pretty great license, ultimately disappoints. The look and vibe of the show is absolutely intact. The beach, jungle and other environment... Read Full Review

    Tomb Raider: Anniversary (Platinum)

    Whether you're a long time fan of Tomb Raider or a newcomer, Anniversary is highly recommendable.

    Tomb Raider: Anniversary is a remake celebrating the first game's release ten years ago and does a remarkable job of capturing the spirit of the original while keeping things interesting for today's gamers. You assum... Read Full Review

    Super Paper Mario

    Super Paper Mario is the most pure and fun platformer in recent memory. A solid buy for any Wii owner,

    While other Paper Mario games had quite pronounced RPG elements, Super Paper Mario takes the series back to basics.This game is a platformer through and through, and a mighty fine one at that. The traditional 2D gameplay... Read Full Review

    The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion

    Oblivion is simply astounding in every way imaginable.

    I write this review after literally just finishing Oblivion, the fourth game in the Elder Scrolls series of RPGs. What's worth noting is that it took me a little over 88 hours to get here. That is by far the longest I'v... Read Full Review

    Bully

    Bully is a great game that could've been even better had it come out on a better console.

    I wasn't really excited about Bully at all until it was released and some feedback was generated. And man am I glad I bought into the hype. The best description I can give Bully is that it's GTA in a boarding school, but... Read Full Review

    One of the PS2's best. A masterful combination of art and gameplay that is flat-out breathtaking.

    Let's just cut to the chase, ok? Okami, by Capcom's Clover Studio, is one of the best games the PS2 has to offer for action/adventure fans. It really is the total package. Looks, sound, gameplay, innovation, it's all the... Read Full Review

    Prey (Collector's Edition)

    Prey truly is the gaming equivalent of a Hollywood blockbuster movie. But in a good way!

    Prey has been a loooong time coming but I will say it was worth the wait. Prey is a pretty standard FPS that utilizes the Doom 3 engine (to great effect) but introduces some new elements to the genre. First there are the... Read Full Review

    Even though it's brief, HL2:Ep.1 is worth every bit of your twenty bucks.

    Half-Life 2: Episode 1 is the first of several "expansions" for 2004's Half-Life 2 which, as you know if you played through it, ended in quite a "WTF!" cliffhanger. Episode 1 picks up right where HL2 left off, so it's mo... Read Full Review

    Don't let the bad reviews scare you. It's actually quite good!

    Gamespot's review of Quake 4 seems a bit harsh. Their biggest complaint is the frame rate which can get ugly but rarely affects gameplay. The shooting in Quake 4 can be easily be compared to that of Doom 3, whose engine ... Read Full Review
