    Rocksmith 2014 Edition (No Cable Included)

    Threw the baby out with the bathwater

    I rated the original Rocksmith (2012) as a 9.5 This one swings and misses, badly. I do not give a rating as an average as all categories are not equal.The Good- improvements over Rocksmith 2012+The lag between guitar and... Read Full Review

    Total War: Rome II

    Does not live up to promises or past releases from the series.

    Total War: Rome II

    Does not live up to promises or past releases from the series.

    I rate on a 1 to 10 scale, keep in mind all categories are equal so end score is not an average. I have always loved the Total War franchise. In fact I loved the previous version of Rome and played up until this year... Read Full Review

    Madden NFL 13

  • Rating:1.5
    Horrid Menu, Horrid Gameplay, Horrid career mode, and no importing from NCAA 13.

    Madden NFL 13

    Horrid Menu, Horrid Gameplay, Horrid career mode, and no importing from NCAA 13.

    Having played every Madden since Madden '98, I have never been so upset. The menu is confusing and entirely over complicated. It emulates the tile based system for Xbox 360 home dashboard. However, they are badly lab... Read Full Review

    Great fun and exceptional skill development.

    Rocksmith

    Great fun and exceptional skill development.

    Disclaimer: I have played guitar off and on since I was an early teen (so 25+ years). My father makes high end electric guitars, is a lifelong guitarist and teaches guitar lessons. This does not make me an expert, but... Read Full Review

    Would have been awesome in 2005 and the voice acting is impressive, but not a selling point.

    Star Wars: The Old Republic

    Would have been awesome in 2005 and the voice acting is impressive, but not a selling point.

    All ratings are on a 1 - 10 scale. Final Score is not an average because the catagories are not equal. The game could be rated one of two ways: First evaluate it as if it were 2005: It would be a 10. Second eva... Read Full Review

    Very good game!

    NCAA Football 11

    Very good game!

    Has very good dynasty mode. Lots of fun to play. Graphics are as usual, 1 year behind Madden. Very good, but Madden shows potential for better. Kicking uses different controls than Madden. Why? Why EA Sports ca... Read Full Review

    Madden NFL 11

    Very good franchise game, more so when combined with NCAA Football 11.

    Franchise is fun, it works reasonably well with NCAA 11. positives: *Player development in franchise is reasonably back on track (took a couple years off because in 09 player development was virtually non-existent an... Read Full Review

    Battlefield: Bad Company 2

    Poor installment to "Battlefield" series. Same old bugs still apply.

    Good: *Graphics are greatly enhanced over previous installments. *Multiplayer primarily sticks to the formula that made the series revolutionary. *Fun to play, especially for those who have been dying for a new Ba... Read Full Review

    Fun to play.  Not nearly as repetitive as other MMOs.  No PVP ganking.

    Star Trek Online

    Fun to play. Not nearly as repetitive as other MMOs. No PVP ganking.

    Jumped in, and am having fun. Not groundbreaking in any way, but it is a good MMO without all the BS that a lot of other MMOs have. Good: * Sound is great. * Graphics are very impressive. * Customizablity of both ... Read Full Review

    Great Graphics, and that's it.

    I took part in the technical testing of the game, then the beta testing. I got the game when it was released and have cancelled before having to pay any monthly dues. Here is why: A. Innovation is limited to the ... Read Full Review

    Pirates of the Burning Sea

    Awesome game ruined with patches.

    Game started off great. Patches made for unknown reasons make the game unenjoyable to those who do not have 7 days per week to play. Game was never very stable. After a number of patches it now crashes constantly, ... Read Full Review
