    Call of Duty 2

    The same things that COD2 a great game are the same things that make its higher difficulty settings nearly impossible.

    I have literally never played a WWII game. I know its a gaming staple and the genre has been milked to death with Call of Duty, Medal of Honor, Brother in Arms and Battlefield flooding the market, but I thought I would ... Read Full Review

    LBP is a great level creation tool, but falls very short in the "game" department. You should rent it first.

    Littlebigplanet for the PS3 is a groundbreaking title that lets you build anything (and I do mean anything) your heart desires. As long as its in the perspective of a 2.5D platformer. You play as Sackboy, a tiny and ... Read Full Review
