    Out of all the MMO's released in the past five years, Aion is in my opinion the prettiest, although you could probably argue that EVE could contend for that spot as well. On top of the good graphics, Aion has a nice soun... Read Full Review

    Mr. Robot is a great old-school RPG buried under an atrocious isometric puzzle platformer.

    Mr. Robot

    Mr. Robot is a great old-school RPG buried under an atrocious isometric puzzle platformer.

    Don't get me wrong, Mr. Robot has a great story and great gameplay mechanics. I'd love to play this game through from start to finish - the atmosphere is decidedly retro, and the characters are all interesting. Howev... Read Full Review

    Far Cry 2 has you capping mercs for quick cash, although the gameplay isn't as rich as you'd expect.

    Far Cry 2

    Far Cry 2 has you capping mercs for quick cash, although the gameplay isn't as rich as you'd expect.

    Far Cry 2 isn't the greatest fps to grace PC's, but it's far from the convoluted mess its detractors want you to think it is. First, a word on repetition. This game isn't more repetitive than any other open-ended game... Read Full Review

    Spore

    Spore allows you to create unique user content, but the dolls you make will far eclipse the dollhouse this game provides

    Let's start off with my own history of this game. I was excited for Spore since 2005. From the first day Spore gameplay was revealed at E3, I was having nerdgasms just thinking about Spore. Everything about it seemed epi... Read Full Review

    A glorified tech demo with archaic gameplay and a tiny singleplayer campaign.

    First, let me start out by saying that this game is a great way to test your shiny new Geforce 8800. That aside, the core game of Crysis blows. In singleplayer, your a US special forces soldier in a pimped out combat sui... Read Full Review

    Assassin's Creed

    It's amazing cinematic flight and fight sequences make it an excellent gaming experience, but it's longevity is lacking.

    The reason why I gave Assassin's Creed an 8.0 is because it's a great experience in its own right, and Gamespot is spot on in saying that it's a game you'll remember for years to come. But other than that, Assassin's Cre... Read Full Review

    This game, like it or not, was the spiritual predecessor to World of Warcraft.

    Before there was World of Warcraft, Diablo 2 was the rpg people played with the Blizzard logo. Although Diablo 2 had singleplayer and no monthly fee, its generally considered that the game was a miniature mmorpg. Up to 8... Read Full Review
