    Batman: Arkham Asylum

  • Review Score:8.5
    The game itself is great but I wish Eidos did a better job with the  UI.

    Batman: Arkham Asylum

    The game itself is great but I wish Eidos did a better job with the UI.

    Let me begin with a confession. I am a Batman fanboy. So when I had a chance to play the demo for Arkham Asylum from Steam I jumped to my PC and began downloading immediately. I like this game, a lot, but I'm not su... Read Full Review

    Pretty but dumb.  Like a really hot babe, it's a fine casual hookup but not worth any real commitment.

    Trine

    Pretty but dumb. Like a really hot babe, it's a fine casual hookup but not worth any real commitment.

    I purchased Trine from Steam during an on-line sale. I'm very glad that I did not pay full retail for this rather uninspiring throwback to the 2-d jumping games of the 1980s. The creators clearly devoted a lot of time ... Read Full Review

    Fallout 3 suffers from three fundamental game design issues that limit its value.

    Fallout 3

    Fallout 3 suffers from three fundamental game design issues that limit its value.

    I recently finished my first play through of Fallout 3. I haven't played a full-scale RPG in a while and was cautiously optimistic when the early reviews were published. Let me begin by saying that I have not played th... Read Full Review

    While not as good as other THQ Games it does have its appeal.

    Supreme Commander

    While not as good as other THQ Games it does have its appeal.

    I recently purchased Supreme Commander, the latest in a string of real time strategy games by THQ. THQ has recently become a leading publisher of RTS games that include the "Warhammer 40,000" franchise (now releasing i... Read Full Review

    A Monumental Achievement in Racing Simulations but Arcade Racing Fanatics Need Not Apply

    A Monumental Achievement in Racing Simulations but Arcade Racing Fanatics Need Not Apply

    I have been a big fan of arcade racing games since the ancient age of Pole Position in my local bowling alley (and again years later on my Atari800 PC) but I have never been so impressed by a racing game since I picked u... Read Full Review

    Poor graphics, a lackluster sense of the macabre and awkward level design suck the life out of the game.

    Vampire: The Masquerade - Bloodlines

    Poor graphics, a lackluster sense of the macabre and awkward level design suck the life out of the game.

    I just finished my first play through Vampire: The Masquerade-Bloodlines. The game is a single-player RPG based on the White Wolf dice-and-paper role playing game of the same name. Players take the role of a fledgling... Read Full Review

    Offers an original story and environment but game play is too easy.

    Prey

    Offers an original story and environment but game play is too easy.

    I just finished playing Prey, the sci-fi FPS from Human Head Studios and 3D Realms. In this game, one of a long list of sci-fi FPS games released in the past 2 years, the environment and story are a fresh change from th... Read Full Review

    Packed with great content but be prepared to work for your victories.

    Company of Heroes

    Packed with great content but be prepared to work for your victories.

    This is only my third tour into the world of RTS games and I have to say that I am very impressed with both the game content and the playability of this latest entry. Company of Heroes is a WW-II based real time strateg... Read Full Review

    The Sims Deluxe

    As a hardcore game fan I just don't understand the appeal.

    I’ve been a hardcore gamer for nearly 20 years. I’ve seen all sorts of titles and genres come of age since then but I just don’t understand the appeal of this game. Basically, the object of the game is to micro-manage ... Read Full Review

    Beginning gamers may appreciate the simplicity but a big name like Atari should have released a better overall product.

    Beginning gamers may appreciate the simplicity but a big name like Atari should have released a better overall product.

    I just finished playing Indigo Prophecy and was disappointed. The initial description and demo really caught my interest. I am a big fan of Atari games since the prehistoric days of M.U.L.E. on the Atari 800 PC and mat... Read Full Review

    Too much drift and shopping, not enough racing.

    Need for Speed: Underground 2

    Too much drift and shopping, not enough racing.

    I've been a big NFS fan since High Stakes and really liked NFSU-1 but this game was very disappointing for three big reasons. Firstly, upgrading parts requires driving all over town to buy them. In NFSU-1, upgrades... Read Full Review

    Only a few minor bugs in what is otherwise a very fun game.

    The Chronicles of Riddick: Escape From Butcher Bay - Developer's Cut

    Only a few minor bugs in what is otherwise a very fun game.

    I just finished playing and was pleasantly surprised by both the depth and the addictiveness of this new addition to the increasingly crowded field of FPS games for PC. It's hard to stand head and shoulders above the re... Read Full Review
