    Star Wars Reborn

    Knights of the Old Republic is the first Role Playing Game I can honestly claim to have played to fruition, which is testament to its true awe-inspiring glory. I've ventured several chapters into Baldur's Gate, given my ... Read Full Review

    Freedom isn't free, but this game should have been.

    Medal of Honor: Pacific Assault

    Freedom isn't free, but this game should have been.

    It's about this time in my gaming career I realize that I have played a lot of games. That isn't a bad thing whatsoever, and it provides a solid, impermeable foundation from which I can critically and successfully judge ... Read Full Review

    Intense strategery, immense possibilities, and insane addictiveness: what could be better?

    Sid Meier's Civilization IV

    Intense strategery, immense possibilities, and insane addictiveness: what could be better?

    Try as hard as you like, but it's impossible to escape Civilization IV's charm. Simply, it's inherent to the design. It's inexplicable really, since the core concepts are so devilishly simply yet it will draw you back fo... Read Full Review

    Madden NFL 09

    Not much more than a roster update...but then again, us Maddenites don't need anything else

    I have a perfectly good excuse for taking five months to review 2009's edition of Madden's annual NFL outing: I've been too busy playing the damn thing. There are two categories of people in this world (trite, but bear w... Read Full Review

    A game crippled by its own triumphs

    Brothers in Arms: Earned in Blood

    A game crippled by its own triumphs

    Whether it's acknowledged or not, Brothers in Arms is a clear attempt to cash in on the $125 million HBO masterpiece Band of Brothers and weave a tale of emotional brutality and bloodshed. Band of Brothers itself rode th... Read Full Review

    A shooting gallery with Daniel Craig's steely atriculation

    It's a little tough to fully explain my experiences with this title; on one hand, I had great fun in blasting through this Call of Duty 4-powered shooter, on the other, the previous statement sums up Quantum of Solace: i... Read Full Review

    Total Overdose: A Gunslinger's Tale in Mexico

    Terrific artistic design and soundtrack don't save the final several missions from wiping the smile clean off my face.

    First things first: I had a blast with Total Overdose. It's been sitting on my shelf for over a year and I finally decided to give it a shot. It definitely has its problems, but the style is so explosive I was quick to f... Read Full Review

    While there's oodles of great gunplay to be had, a lack of anything compelling smacks down the fun.

    The Club

    While there's oodles of great gunplay to be had, a lack of anything compelling smacks down the fun.

    I've never played a game quite like The Club before, and I'm not sure if that's a good thing or the opposite. Its premise is roughly that of the movie Hostel; a privileged fraternity of sorts purchases locations around t... Read Full Review

    It's stunning to imagine how the expansion to a great game can be so horrendous, yet Battle out of Hell is just that

    Painkiller: Battle out of Hell

    It's stunning to imagine how the expansion to a great game can be so horrendous, yet Battle out of Hell is just that

    Perhaps I played Battle out of Hell too soon after rampaging through Lucifer's armies in the core title...or it might be a truly heinous game. Personally, I consider this expansion an atrocity and an insult to other fine... Read Full Review

    Painkiller

    Monotonous, sure, but who cares when the levels look this great and the enemies are this fun to shoot at

    Clearly, I am impatient. The last few games I've played, my main gripe is "the last level(s) are ridiculous and ruin the overall greatness of the game." Painkiller is no different, as I had a blast through the entire gam... Read Full Review

    NCAA Football 09

    For someone who plays almost daily, the new additions are more than enough to please me

    I'll put this out there right now: every professional and peer review I've read for the PS2 version of NCAA cite a lack of major changes or "more of the same." I won't claim I play the most out of anyone alive, but I def... Read Full Review

    Night and day, PS2's Megan Fox to PC's Mary Tyler Moore; there isn't really any better way to say it: this version rocks

    I'll say this right up front: playing Madden 08 for the PS2 is like playing an entirely different game than its PC counterpart. Almost every complaint I leveled against the PC version is mended, present, or far better he... Read Full Review

    One question: how could Sega put this on shelves?

    Hmmm. That's the sound of my consternation upon playing Iron Man. Why, I ask myself, would an executive decide to port the PS2 version to PC as opposed to the far-superior (I would assume, logically) 360 or PS3 versio... Read Full Review

    SWAT 4

    For a game that was lost in Tom Clancy's barrage of Rainbow 6 games, SWAT 4 finds its place well

    SWAT 4 is one of those rare titles that reminds us why we love games. I mean it; when designers go the extra mile to flesh out each and every level with painstaking accuracy and detail, it shows. Everything about SWAT 4 ... Read Full Review

    Tau and Necron more than make up for its brevity, and Dark Crusade delivers

    Warhammer 40,000: Dawn of War - Soulstorm

    It's fun, but Iron Lore does nothing to innovate.

    Warhammer 40,000: Dawn of War

    Bloody, visceral real-time strategy with a deep story. Not to be missed.

    "There is no such thing as innocence, only degrees of guilt." I've never played the Warhammer tabletop game, so I had no idea what to expect coming into Dawn of War. Following my usual real-time strategy pedigree, I l... Read Full Review

    While its expansion is superior, Empire at War is not a game to miss

    Star Wars has long been an intriguing universe to base games in. On one hand, it has limitless expansion, amazing source material, and lightsabers. The opposite side features a strict PG-13 restriction on what could have... Read Full Review
