The Witcher 2: Assassins of Kings (Enhanced Edition)
Great story telling and some nice visuals. But is it fun to play?
I have waited awhile to finally be able to play The Witcher. The first one was supposed to be ported a few years back, but ultimately got scrapped. What a disappointment that turned out to be. Oh well...
Castlevania: Lords of Shadow
A classic, but stale series made relevant again in what is truly an epic and tragic tale.
Whether a reboot can be considered a good thing or not all depends upon your perspective. Some revel in nostalgia and would never change a thing, while others grow weary of the same old formula and pr...
An old jaded fan comes full circle as Bungie goes out with a bang by delivering an epic that truly lives up to it's hype
Well, I did not think that I would ever be pulled back into to Halo, especially so strongly. After Halo 3, I started to become a bit jaded with the series. I still liked it, mind you... I just did not...
Divinity II: Ego Draconis
A true under the radar gem. Technical flaws aside, Divinity II is an old school meets new school RPG goldmine.
First things first, the game does have some technical issues. There is screen tearing, framerate drops every so often and a game save glitch that forces you to re-launch the game sometimes in order to...
Resident Evil 5
While not as dark or brooding as RE4 was, still every bit as good. RE5 nicely carves it's own place in the series.
I would never have believed that RE5 would be as polarizing as it has become. Complaints because it is not enough like the the old installments and more complaints because it has not evolved enough. C...
Fun the first time through, but the bland, barren post-nuclear environment will eventually grow about as weary as looks.
For starters, Bethesda did manage to make this more of an RPG than Oblivion was, and that is indeed commendable. As this game truly excells at that and makes for a solid playthrough. Unfortunately, fo...
A chaotic venture into an intense, war torn, blasted rubble, scorched sky hell....and oh how beautifully done it is.
Well, Guerrilla Games did it. 4 years of speculation, a flood of ridicule and mockery later, they have managed to silence the hordes in a rather spectacular fashion. This is why Killzone 2 is indeed a...
Event Horizon, mixed with Alien and Resident Evil. Beyond those comparisons, it still has established it's own identity.
The visuals and the lighting are superb, as are the sound effects. Combine these technical achievements with an immersive environment, edge of your seat story, smooth as butter gameplay and you have a...
A foundation for what can be a great trilogy was laid. A flawed gem in every sense of the term.
I am truly excited to see where Silicon Knights can take this game. The game is flawed, no question. However, underneath the sub-par graphics, lack of level and enemy variety, and the fidgety camera l...
Alone in the Dark
A great concept with some great ideas gone horribly wrong.
I was so certain this game would end up being great....boy how wrong I was. It started off ok enough, and I thought that I was definitely going to enjoy the entirety of the game. However, a couple of ...
Grand Theft Auto IV
The whole is greater than the sum of it's parts is what best describes this masterpiece.
Well, I just finally beat it tonight actually. And while I got slightly disenchanted half way through, after laying off of it for a couple of days, I fell in love with it all over again after I came b...
Shallow in regards to story/character development. But fun gameplay wise, due to utilizing a tried and true system.
Dark Sector is a game in a catch 22 of sorts. As it is visually very impressive, and the gameplay utilizes a tried and true system that is a hybrid of RE4 and Gears of War. Therefore, it works and is ...
In terms of addictiveness, fun and variety, this is quite simply the best online game I have ever played.
Well, what can I say? I stayed on the fence for this game since last August when it was released. But, am I ever glad that I decided to go ahead and pick it up for 30.00, as I have yet to find an onli...
Viking: Battle for Asgard
While lacking a bit of polish, and lacking in the animation department, a suprisingly fun game. But a bit too repetitive
Boy, is this ever the game for you, if you dig "olde" school, brutal hack n' slash games, with a smattering of stealth and strategy that also let's you complete the game at your own pace due to having...
Great at first, but after repeating the same thing for the entire game, it get's really old, really fast. Huge letdown.
It's a good game, but I can only handle small doses of it at a time because you essentially replay the same mission over and over throughout the 3 cities, only you assassinate a different individual. ...
Ratchet & Clank Future: Tools of Destruction
Superb variety in gameplay, weapons and environments makes this beautiful game truly stand out as a modern classic.
Quite simply, some of the most fun I have had playing a game in a very long time. It is a sheer blast. It never gets dull or repetitve because the variety and gameplay is so rich. There are so many d...
Clive Barker's Jericho
Utterly let down and unimpressed by this game after having very high hopes for it.
I have been waiting on this game since it was announced and followed it's development process very closely. And my anticipation grew with every bit of new information, video and screenshot that came o...
Classic example of gameplay winning out over graphics.
If you are an action/adventure junkie who loves games within the same vein as God of War, then you should really feel right at home with this game. As it definitely takes a page or two out of God of W...
A very well executed game that concentrates on the fun and immersion factor more so than overly flashy visuals.
Halo 3 definitely has reminded me of why I liked the first one so much, and it is without question the best in the series thus far. I actually lost interest in Halo after Halo 2, but Bungie really cap...
One of the best games so far this gen....despite it's length. It's like playing through an epic film.
This game is truly worth owning a PS3 for, and is the best game I have played for the PS3. It is also one of the best games that I have played this gen, if not the best. As it is like partaking in an ...
Easily one of the best game so far this year. GOTY ? Tough call, but it is still a must have, regardless.
Ahh, Bioshock. The first of the really big titles to land this year, and what an appropriate end to the summer drought it is. This is truly not your normal game that is merely played. It is supposed t...
Ninja Gaiden Sigma
Team Ninja re-confirmed why Ninja Gaiden is one of the greatest action games ever made....and easily the hardest.
Quite simply a masterpiece in terms of gameplay. Yes the acting and the way the story is played out pretty much is dated and lackluster, but that is not why you play this game.....trust me. The contro...
Not as great as I anticipated, but still has it's high points which make it worth playing, even with the flaws.
Although Lair did not turn out as great as I hoped it would, I am still having fun playing it despite it's issues. I actually have no problems with the controls, it is the camera that gets on my nerve...
The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion
One of the best RPG's I have ever played....period.
THIS is the main reason I bought/wanted an Xbox360 and it MORE than lived up to the hype. This is what gaming is all about....FREEDOM to do or be nearly anything you want while selecting and completin...
Prince of Persia: The Two Thrones
In a word....WOW! An epic adventure that has to be experienced. Ranks right up there with "God of War"....mayb
Definately the best of the three titles within the Prince of Persia Trilogy. If any game ever needed a movie based of of it....this would definately be the one. Just play and complete the game and you...
Shadow of the Colossus
They apparently forgot to include THE GAME with this one, as there is no game to to speak of other than Colossi battles.
There is no and I mean NO game here to speak of, other than Colossi battles. More of a quest poriented game would be welcome, but it is fun for what it si I suppose. All that you are required to do th...
Fun, full of humor with a deliciously dark spin, and very addicitive. A wonderful change of pace from your average game.
Once you get going in this game, it is just hard to put the controller down. After you get all 4 types of minions that all serve a different purpose for you, the game really opens up, as you are able ...
One of the more immersive shooters you can play.
This game is one of those FPS' that does an excellent job of drawing you into playing the role of the character (Jackie Estacado). It also is the type of shooter that takes skill as well. As there is...
Resistance: Fall of Man
Call of Duty meets Resident Evil and Quake. With it's own completely original, unique spin of course.
Quite simply, one of the best all around shooters that I have ever played. The graphics are not superb, but are still a great start for the PS3. Game play is where this baby shines....simply superior...
Lost Planet: Extreme Condition
A beautifully done, and extremely fun game, that can pose some rather unique challenges throughout. A multi-taskers game
People talk about how short that this game is, but it took me a good bit longer to beat than it took me to beat Gears of War, which I beat in roughly 7 hours (two short afternoons.) I took my time pla...
Resident Evil 4
An incredible achievment in nearly every respect. One of finest games I have ever played in my life.
After playing and beating the GC version....and loving every minute of it, I knew that I had to get this version as well, due to the added Ada Wong mission. It is virtually the same game as the one th...
The best zombie game ever made....period. One of the most creative, and just out right FUN games available for the 360.
This game is truly a real breath of fresh air for the 360, and is unquestionably an instant classic. Dead Rising is gory, macabe, and humorus all at the same time, while offering vast room for creativ...
God of War II
One of the absolute best games out right now for ANY system, and that is a fact. Unbelievably, even better than GOW 1.
This game is a masterpiece, plain and simple. It violent, brutal and truly EPIC masterpiece. The graphics are great for a PS2 game, and the cut scenes look fantastic when played on a PS3. The game...
Untold Legends: Dark Kingdom
A much richer game than ratings would indicate. A quest oriented game, with that "old school" flare to it.
This game is truly one that is underappreciated. It is not just another "mindless" hack n' slash like N3, but an old school quest oriented action/RPG. The game offers plenty of variety in te...
Starts off sort of slow, but get's fairly addictive after a while. A fun, but repetitve playground/sandbox game.
I really had high hopes for this game, only to be a bit disappointed at first, but after spending a few hours with it, I found myself getting rather addicted to climbing buildings, looking for agility...
Way underappreciated. A classic mix of old school meets new school FPS, run and gun fun with a great sci-fi story.
This game all too often get's overlooked way too easily by nit-pickers who deduct points for every little minor performance flaw, forgetting that there is an ACTUAL GAME HERE....and a rather good one ...
Tom Clancy's Rainbow Six Vegas
One of the most realistic tactical shooters you can play. Simply killer.
Rainbow Six Vegas (like other Rainbow Six games) is a pure tactical shooter in that you must plan your actions very carefully when approaching nearly EVERY area within the game, as if you try to run ...
Gears of War
A Great game that is very fun and graphically stunning, but far too short. It really could have been MUCH better.
Ahh, the much hyped and highly vaunted "Gears of War." It is all I have been hearing about....Gears this and Gears that.....so I had to of course go and pick up the game for myself, as I was...
Prey (Collector's Edition)
Not impressed. Some decent eye candy, but not much else.
I actually had some high hopes for this game, but after I started playing it, I came to the realization that a Native American "spirit world" theme interwoven into an alien/sci-fi based plo...
Although fun, it is just yet another fighting game, only with better graphics than the usual fare.<br /> <br />
Although I would consider myself only a MODERATE fan/player of fighting games in general, I always give the benefit of the doubt when formulating an opinion on a fighting game after playing one. Tekke...
