(Spoilers!) Twisted Infinity is a Lot of Fun!
I have just finished my second play-through on 1999 mode. On this setting the game has some set-pieces which are incredibly tough until you find the correct strategy to overcome them. On normal settin...
A Playable Tech Demo Giving a Cursory Nod to a Storyline
I am really disappointed with this game, after having immensely enjoyed both Crysis and Crysis 2. This really is very mundane gaming. Yes, it looks incredible, but there are no stand-out set-piece bat...
Dead Space 3
Good Ideas Poorly Executed.
Sorry - spoilers ahead. Don't read if you don't want to know about the story. As a huge fan of the first two games I had learned to expect the unexpected from the series. However, I did not expect ...
Dead Space 2
A Psychologically Gruesome, Beautifully Disturbing Ride to the Depths of Isaac's Soul.
I only play games for the single-player campaign, and after being thrilled, scared and shaken by Isaac's trials in the first game, I had high hopes for this sequel. Although I was initially underwhelm...
Assassin's Creed: Brotherhood
Muddled storyline, repetitive missions and buggy controls ruin a beautiful adventure
ACII was wondrous, so immersive and bewitching that I stayed with it until I finished 100% of its achievements. More than a year later it was exciting to take on the role of Ezio again, but unfort...
Great-looking fun game that could have been so much more.
I have just finished playing this through for the second time - after a long break from it I could even contemplate playing it a third time, if that tells you anything about this game's replay value. ...
Tom Clancy's Ghost Recon Advanced Warfighter
Great on X-Box, shocking on PC.
I am a fan of Tom Clancy games on the Xbox 360. GRAW and Rainbow Six Vegas are great (but very tough) games. I beat both games on the hardest dificulty setting on this console. This game was superb...
Surprisingly good fun!
For a downloadable game this is really something. It has a lot of replay value, in that not only is the campaign interesting (and frustrating too !) but the challenge rooms which are played outside of...
Batman: Arkham Asylum
A great story, with hidden depth.
This is an ambitious game, which the developers have pulled off very well. I love the gadgets, swinging around the gargoyles, using the inverted takedowns, fighting off a dozen grunts at the same time...
Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2
Video Game Equivalent of a Michael Bay Film
Really great graphics, but no real improvement on the first game there. Totally incoherent and muddled storyline to the campaign. A lot of brainless Gun and Run nonsense. Probably good for people ...
A Masterpiece that wil take over your life!
Quite simply the best game of the last year. Its only negative point would be the very strange 3rd-person camera angle - don't believe the creators' claims that it can be played in first and third per...
Gears of War 2
Bigger, Louder, More adventurous, not always necessarily better.
The campaign loses some of the intimacy and immediacy of the first game, but makes up for it with spectacular set-pieces and outstanding visuals and audio. The cover mechanics are largely fixed. Th...
Grand Theft Auto IV
Well over-rated. Avoid if you have a brain.
Bought it because I believed the hype, and this is what I found: Very poor graphics, pointless storyline. Jerky camera angle. Terrible gameplay. The game has no reasonable justification. I play a l...
