    90% awesome ass-kicking closure - 10% homicidal rage and suicidal depression

    90% awesome ass-kicking closure - 10% homicidal rage and suicidal depression

    I realize I am way behind on this review but I have been away from it for a while and just randomly decided to put some thoughts about this series and this game on paper (so to speak). Maybe this will serve as the catha... Read Full Review

    Bethesda just plain nailed it.

    The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim

    Bethesda just plain nailed it.

    I am going to gloss over the positives in Skyrim simply because there are so many. The game world is huge. It is an exploreres delight. It is no exaggeration to say you could spend dozens of hours simply wandering aro... Read Full Review

    Dragon Age II

    Dragon Age: Origins, it is not.

    Dragon Age II

    Dragon Age: Origins, it is not.

    I should start off by saying that I felt Dragon Age: Origins (DA:O) was one of the best RPGs in a long while -- maybe ever. As such I had high hopes and expectations for Dragon Age 2 (DA2). And I freely admit that those... Read Full Review

    You just have to play this game.

    The Witcher 2: Assassins of Kings

    You just have to play this game.

    I will assume anyone reading this already knows what the Witcher series is about and who its protagonist is, so I won't bother going over any of that. That said, straight up I should say I was not a fan of the first Witc... Read Full Review

    The game feels and plays a lot like WoW.

    Rift

    The game feels and plays a lot like WoW.

    I picked the title as I felt it was the best way to describe my experience with Rift. However, I don't think that should preclude anyone from playing or trying the game nor am I trying to suggest that the many similariti... Read Full Review

    Terrible. Just plain terrible.

    Star Wars: The Force Unleashed II

    Terrible. Just plain terrible.

    I'm not sure if the developers of this game ran out of time, money, imagination, care or all the above, but this was one of the worst games I have had the misfortune of playing in quite some time. Game play is copy /... Read Full Review

    Assassin's Creed: Brotherhood

    This is Assassin's Creed 2 with a few upgrades.

    Assassin's Creed: Brotherhood (PS3 Slim Bundle)

    This is Assassin's Creed 2 with a few upgrades.

    This will be especially short since many of my feelings about Brotherhood carry over from my AC2 review. However, they did do a few things better. 1. There is actually a reason to be stealthy in this game. You get to ... Read Full Review

    I tried. I really, really tried. Three times I have tried and I cannot get into this game.

    The Witcher

    I tried. I really, really tried. Three times I have tried and I cannot get into this game.

    I will keep this review relatively short since many others have expressed my frustrations with this game in their reviews, but quite simply there is way too much nothing going on and little to no direction of where to go... Read Full Review

    Picked this game up because I had a gift certificate.

    Alpha Protocol

    Picked this game up because I had a gift certificate.

    I gave this "review" the title I did, not because I am instantly trying to deride the game, but simply to illustrate that given what I had read and heard about the game, it's unlikely I would have purchased the game at f... Read Full Review

    The theme of this game was, "if it ain't broke, don't fix it".

    God of War III

    The theme of this game was, "if it ain't broke, don't fix it".

    That shouldn't be too surprising given the successes of the first two installments. And this game really is the exact same thing as the first two with updated graphics and sound. Kratos looks great, the cut scenes look g... Read Full Review

    Through the entire expansion, I kept wondering when my group mates would become interesting enough to care about.

    Dragon Age: Origins - Awakening

    Through the entire expansion, I kept wondering when my group mates would become interesting enough to care about.

    This was a fun expansion with a reasonable amount of new material especially given the short time since the release of Origins. However, it IS a lot more of the same with a few additions. The fights are generally the ... Read Full Review

    Wonderful characters, excellent environments, exciting action. But is there more to the story here?

    Mass Effect 2

    Wonderful characters, excellent environments, exciting action. But is there more to the story here?

    It's hard for me to know how far along i am in the game as a vast majority of my time has been spent either assembling and "upgrading" my team or scanning planets looking for raw materials to upgrade my equipment. I have... Read Full Review

    Dragon Age: Origins (Collector's Edition)

    An immersive game with a deep story and wonderful characters makes this one of the best RPGs I've ever played.

    This is an exceptional RPG. Bioware first grabbed my attention with the Baldur's Gate series. BG2 still rates as one of my all time favorite games. And now Bioware managed to carry on and expand on their RPG reputatio... Read Full Review

    Doesn't being as assassin translate into killing without being noticed?

    Assassin's Creed II

    Doesn't being as assassin translate into killing without being noticed?

    (A slight spoiler at the end of this review. It's not going to ruin the game at all.) Ok, I know it doesn't. It simply involves murdering someone (usually a prominent individual) for personal, monetary or fanatical re... Read Full Review
