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 t...
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 ...
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 fin...
Final Fantasy XIII
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 i...
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...
Gears of War 2
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 r...
Fallout: New Vegas
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 to...
Just Cause 2
Could not get into this game
I really enjoy a good open world sandbox game, having just played The Saboteur for almost 2 months prior, but after trying several times to get into this game it just never clicked with me and I stopp...
Not my kind of game at all, but I still had a lot of fun playing it, and glad I did.
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 a...
Gives you something to do while waiting for the next Half-Life installment
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 fo...
Halo 3: ODST
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 stor...
This game seems to hate you!
I did finish the entire campaign so I guess it was good enough, and enjoyed bits and pieces of the gameplay, but as a whole the game was just so uneven with it's pacing that it was just not that much ...
Wow, I spent 40 hours playing this game. I guess I liked it!
So after a month of real time, and 40 hours game time, I just completed the last of the story missions in the game. I still have like what seems hundreds of secondary tasks still to do, even after do...
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 diff...
Not my kind of game mechanically, but still had fun with it's goofy story and presentation (on Easy)
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 t...
Enslaved: Odyssey to the West
Loved it - can wait for a sequel!
Just finished playing thru the game on the normal difficulty. The combination of different gameplay elements made this a perfect game for me. I love games that don't rush you thru, but allow you t...
Dragon Age: Origins - Awakening
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, ...
Dragon Age: Origins
(Too much) Quantity over (too little) Quality
Just finished the Origins game, with all the related DLC included on the Ultimate Edition, in just under 80 hours. My first thought is I'm disappointed after playing thru Mass Effect 1 and 2 by th...
Not as good as the first, but still a lot of fun
Just finished up this second game in the series and was very happy with my second trip under the ocean. I'm the kind of player that loves to go slow and take my time, exploring everywhere, and enjo...
Wii Fit Plus
Way too cutesy and not what I expected - wish I saved my $90 instead of buying this
I read the reviews for this game/accessory saying this is nothing more than an expensive scale and was hoping they were wrong. Well after a month of trying to use this program, I have to say they a...
Meh, it was ok. Finished it, but not something I'd want to play more of.
I went back and checked my review of the older Indigo Prophecy game and see I gave it a 8.4. Yah, that sounds right to me as I am rating this lower at 7.5. Still good, but I liked the older game bet...
After many restarts over the last year, I finally stuck with it and played it until the end - reminds me of Breakdown
Just finished the game last night, and let me say after several false starts, I'm glad I finally made it past the initial training level and stuck with it until the end. If you ever played the game...
Red Faction: Guerrilla
Technically competent, but just did not click with me, and I gave up on it after 15 hours
I really wanted to like this one after reading all the positive reviews, so I found it on sale, and started in. Played through the first set of missions and arrived at the second area with another se...
Very Entertaining and Totally Immersive Modern RPG (July 2010 Update - now even better with the Game of the Year edition
Wow, I just finished this game after what shows a little over 60 hours on the final save. Just like Oblivion, they had the game end right when I was getting a little tired of it. Very good timing on...
Mass Effect 2
Great Game picking up where the first one left off.
I just played Mass Effect 1 and 2 back to back so it was nice to see what they added/took away between the two. I'm giving this second effort a .5 higher score than the first thanks to the tighteni...
Great Game! Don't miss it now that the 2nd one is out.
I just played Mass Effect 1 and 2 back to back so it was nice to see what they added/took away between the two. For those of you thinking to skip this first one if you never played it, you really s...
Lost Planet: Extreme Condition
Felt like playing a N64 game - with a constant countdown timer - UGH!
Wow, this game looked and felt just not good. The control of your character and the whole style of the game made me feel like I was playing a totally average N64 game from 12 years ago instead of an ...
Fun gameplay but way too frustrating for my tastes and I gave up wanting to play more but couldn't take it as is.
Just getting around to playing this 2006 game now in 2010 to see what all the fuss was about. I'm glad I did, coming in the new platinum triple pack from Capcom. But oh man would I be mad if I p...
I know its cliche but I can't help it; "Fallout 3 + Diablo = Borderlands"
Wow, I just finished playing every single side-quest I could find, in addition to the main story line, and I can't wait to jump in and play some more when I can get the down-loadable content on disk (...
Worse game then the first one. Worse graphics, weapons, magic and many more.
Sorry, but coming from someone who really loved the first Fable (and gave it a 9.3 score) this game is a total letdown. First, it looks terrible on the Xbox 360. The menus are sharp, but when you ...
Totally made our Christmas Party
After watching the guys at Giantbomb making a quicklook video showing how fun this game was, I picked it up for my niece and nephew for Xmas. It was the total hit of our family party, and for the fir...
Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2
Good follow-up to the first one, but not as memorable, and still has that trigger point gameplay that I don't like.
Well I finished this game a couple weeks ago, and waited to review it to let the hype surrounding the game in my mind go down a bit. I'm glad I did, because it's not as good as the hype would have yo...
Uncharted 2: Among Thieves
Now this is a game worth experiencing
Wow, just finished this game. Took me over 16 hours according to the stats. I play pretty slowly and like to run around and explore the environment looking for hidden treasures so that's maybe why I...
I wish there would of been a demo, so I would have known to avoid this frustrating game
I admit this game sounded very interesting to me. I was so hyped up to give it a try after reading all the reviews, I actually paid $10 more for the Limited Edition figuring I'd really get into it. ...
Zero: Shisei no Koe
Not as good as the first two games in the series
I've played thru the first two games in the series on the original Xbox. Never had a PS/2 so I didn't get around to playing this 3rd installment until now on my backwards compatible 60gb PS3 (which w...
Batman: Arkham Asylum
Well paced game with a variety of things to keep you busy
Just finished this game and it was great. I really enjoyed the time spent playing. In this game I really felt like Batman. Even when everything was stacked against him, you really felt that Bat...
Great combination of open world exploration and story missions
Just finished this game and wanted to write this review giving it the praise it deserves. It took me around 15 hours to finish on the good side, and I'm looking forward to going back and trying the e...
Fatal Frame II: Crimson Butterfly Director's Cut
Took me about 5 years to finally finish this game and I'm glad I did it. Spooky and a nice change of pace.
I played the original Fatal Frame on the Xbox like 6 years ago and really enjoyed that original game. It was really tough, but good. So I got this follow-up game way back when it originally came out...
The Chronicles of Riddick: Assault on Dark Athena
The Loading Screen Game.....
Just finished up both of the games included in this package. Replayed the remake of original one that I played 5 years ago on the Xbox, and also the new follow-up game. They weren't really connected...
Sacred 2: Fallen Angel
I really wanted to like this, gave it a chance, but decided it's not worth it, and gave up
I read the reviews and saw the screenshots and was thinking this looks pretty cool and a game I would like, so I paid my full $60 when it first came out. Popped it in, picked one of the 6 predefi...
