    GTI Racer

    Rated on March 15, 2013 by linmukai

    Fun arcade racing with Volkswagens.

    Let's get this right out of the way up front: yes GTI is a simple arcade racer. It's not Gran Turismo for Volkswagens. It's not NFS for Volkswagens. It's just a simple, straightforward, easy to jump i...

    Maybe some will like this cat and mouse game but it just didn't float my boat at all.

    The Ship

    Rated on April 08, 2012 by linmukai

    Maybe some will like this cat and mouse game but it just didn't float my boat at all.

    Within minutes of play I find out that this game requires me to do things like eat, drink and strangely enough, pee and well, you get the idea. I even found a colostomy bag minutes into the game which...

    Obnoxious character dialog, poor voice acting, lag in multiplayer and numerous bugs make this one to skip.

    Vietcong

    Rated on August 24, 2007 by linmukai

    Obnoxious character dialog, poor voice acting, lag in multiplayer and numerous bugs make this one to skip.

    I wanted to like this but beyond the electric guitar music at the main menu screen there wasn't much to like. The opening scene which takes you to a camp up north for some "action" you've...

    Still a fun game despite its age and first generation shortcomings.

    EverQuest: Shadows of Luclin

    Rated on January 02, 2007 by linmukai

    Still a fun game despite its age and first generation shortcomings.

    Well, I find myself in a love-hate relationship with EverQuest after playing the game for over five years now, often to the exclusion of most other games in my collection although I don't spend that k...

    Doom 3

    Rated on January 01, 2007 by linmukai

    The new Doom is everything an old Doom fan could want. All your favorite minions of hell never looked so good.

    This game hardly needs another review at this point but I still wanted to add my voice to those who say it is in fact and excellent game and a worthy successor to the Doom name. Not surprisingly, o...

    Battlefield 1942: The Road to Rome

    Rated on December 20, 2006 by linmukai

    Great addition to the excellent and very fun Battlefield 1942.

    I had to come back and rewrite this review. Previously I had played Battlefield 1942 and maybe it was just the late night hours I was playing but I had trouble then finding servers with Road to Rome m...

    Good Fun Vietnam Era Multiplayer Action

    People are still playing this game, which is not a lot different than Battlefield 1942 other than the combat environments, vehicles from that time period, etc. The graphics and sound are decent but th...

    The Chronicles of Riddick: Escape From Butcher Bay - Developer's Cut

    Rated on December 17, 2006 by linmukai

    Riddick is a stunning achievement that should not be missed by anyone who loves action games. Period.

    It's rare that a game impresses me to the extent this one has. It's one of those rare gems that gets it all right in every way. The action and the story that lends purpose to it are excellent. The gam...

    SiN Episodes: Emergence

    Rated on December 08, 2006 by linmukai

    Short but very entertaining while it lasts and well worth playing.

    I just finished the game and I can honestly say I am looking forward to seeing Episode 2 if they ever ship the game. The lack of information about the next episode is enough to make one wonder given h...

    Vanilla racing that's nothing special but isn't a bad bargain bin buy.

    Midnight Club II

    Rated on December 05, 2006 by linmukai

    Vanilla racing that's nothing special but isn't a bad bargain bin buy.

    Midnight Club II has a rather juvenile approach but if you can get past that and the rap music while you're driving it's not a bad arcade racer. The graphics are dated but servicable enough. It doesn'...

    Medal of Honor: Allied Assault

    Rated on December 04, 2006 by linmukai

    A highly entertaining experience you shouldn't miss if you like shooters and somehow haven't yet played this one yet.

    Medal of Honor Allied Assault took the genre to a whole new level of immersion and fun when it was new. It's still the same great game and if somehow you missed it when it came out you ought to check ...

    This is a fun old school shooter experience that entertains for a short time but does it well.

    Red Faction II

    Rated on November 15, 2006 by linmukai

    This is a fun old school shooter experience that entertains for a short time but does it well.

    Red Faction II is a fun and action packed shooter with lots of variety in the weapons and levels it runs you though. It's linear and it's pretty much old school standard shooter fare but that's not ne...

    Unfortunately, being all it's cracked up to be is not a compliment in this case.

    Strike 1: Two attempted installs, two failures. To get this game installed involved having to copy all the files to a folder on my hard drive and then running Setup.exe from there. It could not comple...

    More of the same, only not nearly as good.

    Unfortunately, I would agree with the Gamespot review here. I wanted this to be better than it was but it wasn't. I wonder if people praising this game simply never played the two previous Serious Sam...

    Star Wars: Starfighter

    Rated on October 25, 2006 by linmukai

    Arcade Space Shooter that is OK but nothing special and it's short which is probably a good thing.

    I played most of the game this morning. It's not bad but it's not great either. If you enjoy an arcade space sim that is more shoot-em up than anything else, with a minimal and rather lame story that ...

    This could have been a lot better but as Jeff pointed out in the GS review, the compilation is hurting all over the place, thanks to the slipshod way it was thrown together. You can patch the sound ba...

    ZZZzzzzzzzzzzz.... Oh, sorry! This game had put me to sleep. Read on and I will tell you why.

    This game is the most boring, bland, lifeless excuse for a shooter I've seen in some time. The graphics are ok, the sound is ok, but the gameplay such as it is, is driven by a rather contrived, lame s...

    Fun multiplayer makes this a good bargain bin buy.

    I played through a couple of the missions single player and found them to be ok, if nothing exceptional. But the multiplayer is where I felt good about the 10 bucks this now budget title cost me. As o...

    A Great Follow-up to the Amazing Ultima VII Series

    This game drew a lot of criticism for its many jumping sequences when it was new. Personally, while I wasn't crazy about them either, or at least the amount of them in the game, I always thought this ...

    It's a shame this gem of a game didn't sell better and see a sequel.

    I loved Clive Barker's Undying when it came out. The atmosphere was great and it had a good story with a likeable main character in Patrick. The graphical presentation of the game was very good for it...
