    Frustrating gameplay and sorry everyone but I didn't find the "story" very good

    Spec Ops: The Line

    Frustrating gameplay and sorry everyone but I didn't find the "story" very good

    I was really intrigued by the scenario of Dubai and the apocalyptic setting, and kept hearing about how the game is not good but it's worth seeing, but boy was I let down. I'm not really sure what they were trying to d... Read Full Review

    Wow, this was a huge disappointment coming from somebody who really enjoyed the first game

    Battlefield: Bad Company 2

    Wow, this was a huge disappointment coming from somebody who really enjoyed the first game

    What happened? They took out almost everything that was so much fun in the first game, and replaced it with a boring generic tech demo. I played the first game twice, something I rarely do, because it was just so much ... Read Full Review

    I'm glad I finally got around to playing this one.

    Alan Wake

    I'm glad I finally got around to playing this one.

    I was kind of holding off playing this one after reading all the comments as I was confused on if I would like this or not. So when Amazon had it for only $20 new, I picked it up. I'm glad I did finally give it a chanc... Read Full Review

    Unlike most reviewers it seems, I enjoyed the linear first part of the game way more than the last open world part

    Unlike most reviewers it seems, I enjoyed the linear first part of the game way more than the last open world part

    Wow, just finished playing this game after spending over 75 hours according to the game clock, and almost 2 months real time. If you are looking for a game that will keep you busy for a while, this is certainly it. K... Read Full Review

    Ghostbusters: The Video Game

    Once I put the difficulty to easy, it became a lot more fun.

    I have to admit, I have no patience for bad gameplay anymore. After starting the game on normal, I quickly realized about an hour into the game, that the difficulty of the ghost busting gameplay was too frustrating... Read Full Review

    First Game to give me motion sickness, but I finished it anyway, so it must of been pretty good!

    First Game to give me motion sickness, but I finished it anyway, so it must of been pretty good!

    Played thru the single player campaign, and have to say I really liked this game. It didn't start off that way, at first I thought it was just ok but nothing special, but as the the story went on I really got into it. ... Read Full Review

    Very good follow-up to Fallout 3, just not as interesting to me.

    Well I just got one of the endings and game over after 65+ hours of playing. Thinking back over it all, I did have a great time playing, but the ending kind of let me down. It was fun to play a totally different scen... Read Full Review

    I usually don't like games where you are basically just running forward and shooting, but somehow I really liked this one. They broke up the high-speed parts with some slow quiet moments to explore and I appreciated tha... Read Full Review

    Hey, this game was not bad. Kind of like Half-Life mixed with BioShock, mixed with like 20 other games, which did make it feel kind of a clone, but one worth playing, especially if you can find it for under $20 like I d... Read Full Review

    Ehhh. More Halo but nothing really interesting.

    I really don't know about this game. I mean it's Halo and all, but you play as a normal soldier and not Master Chief, so a little blah. They have some made up story that I didn't care about the story or the characters.... Read Full Review

    Assassin's Creed II

    I really liked the first game, and love this one even more.

    Before starting to play this second game, I replayed the first game that I first played 3 years ago (and gave a score of 8.5), so it was cool coming in fresh off that first game to pick up on the differences. I really... Read Full Review

    Just finished this game, clocking in around 15 hours total. Much longer than some other reviews would have me believe it would have taken me. Maybe I just like to go slower than most? I'm still thinking about what I... Read Full Review

    Not nearly as good as the original game, buggy, but still kind of addicting.

    Just finished playing this add-on content, that I got included in the new Ultimate Collection. I'm glad I didn't pay the original $40 asking price as that would have felt like a rip-off. As it was, it felt like an over... Read Full Review
