    Guilty Gear X2 Reload is one of the best fighters for PC -and at a bargain.

    Guilty Gear XX #Reload

    Guilty Gear X2 Reload is one of the best fighters for PC -and at a bargain.

    The Guilty Gear series has been quietly making a name for itself since the golden days of the PS1 (5th gen). While Capcom's Street Fighters and Capcom mash-ups and the Mortal Kombat series have reaped the benifits of est... Read Full Review

    Great use of the Q3 Engine, also try Open Arena or Alien Arena.

    Nexuiz

    Great use of the Q3 Engine, also try Open Arena or Alien Arena.

    Ever since the guys at id software started letting garage devs crank out fully legal Quake 3 clones, the PC arena-based FPS scene has seen some pretty keen uses of this old yet very effecient tech. The two reigning champ... Read Full Review

    The Whip of the Old, The Changable Weapons of the New

    Castlevania Double Pack

    The Whip of the Old, The Changable Weapons of the New

    As all long time Castlevania fans are well aware, the series hasn't been the same since Alucard (SotN, PS1, 1998) stepped in wielding swapable weapons and very UN-Belmonte-eque abilities. While the majority of us greatly... Read Full Review

    Go with AC when choosing character for best results.

    Capcom vs. SNK 2 EO: Millionaire Fighting 2001

    Go with AC when choosing character for best results.

    Why do reviewers give birth about the GC option? Honestly, Gamespot... The Gamecube version of Capcom Vs SNK 2 EO plays exactly like its PS2/XBox/Dreamcast counterparts. The only real difference is you're given the op... Read Full Review

    Bleach DS 2nd: Kokui Hirameku Requiem

    Finally, the DS gets a good fighter!

    While the DS has had great RPGs and platformers in spades, it has suffered dearly in the fighting games department. Bleach Dark Souls helps this issue -big time. For starters, the character roster is large and diverse... Read Full Review

    Unreal Anthology

    Unreal Anthology is FPS paradise for $20.

    Unreal Anthology is a fine example of what more developers need to be doing: take ESTABLISHED FRANCHISES that gamers already adore and RE-RELEASE them in HIGH QUALITY BOX SETS. Developers can make a killing and maintain ... Read Full Review

    TimeSplitters: Future Perfect

    Time Splitters: Future Perfect keeps the replay value, and the laughs, up!

    The PS2 had an exponential number of great games. But its First Person Shooter line up was a bit dry. Thankfully, the Time Splitters franchise blessed Sony's second console with three gems. 'Time Splitters', 'Time Splitt... Read Full Review

    TimeSplitters: Future Perfect

    Time Splitters: Future Perfect keeps the replay value, and the laughs, up.

    On the original XBox, Halo ruled the FPS roost. It had some competition, though. Unreal Championchip, Medal Of Honor... Time Splitters 2 and Time Splitters: Future Perfect rocked hard. Both titles were on PS2, GC and XBo... Read Full Review

    Mortal Kombat: Deception

    Mortal Kombat: Deception takes what we already love and adds more...nice.

    Mortal Kombat: Deception is easily one of the greatest fighting games ever made. The Kombat is easily the star of its various modes; three fighting styles per karacter (two hand-based, one weapon-based), two Fatalities p... Read Full Review

    TS:FP has tons of replay value-a major factor in whether to "rent" or "buy". I say, "BUY". You'll thank me later.

    TimeSplitters: Future Perfect

    TS:FP has tons of replay value-a major factor in whether to "rent" or "buy". I say, "BUY". You'll thank me later.

    The GameCube, while a very capable system, didn't have enough quality FPSs. Metroid Prime and 'Echoes' rocked, but didn't offer the replay value nor multiplayer modes I associate with good FPSs. Thankfully, Free Radical ... Read Full Review

    Mortal Kombat: Deception

    Midway brings everything we love about MK to the 3D realm.

    I was a teenager in the early '90s. So arcades were still popular. Consoles like SNES and Genisis were finally getting close to matching arcade quality graphics. Little did we know, by the mid '90s, cosoles would destroy... Read Full Review

    Tom Clancy's Splinter Cell: Double Agent

    SC:DA is a solid stealth/action title on the GC, despite dated graphics and lack of online play.

    Those whom own a GameCube know the drill; NO online support, developers/publishers handle graphics half-heartedly. Let's get that reality of the GC out of the way while we're ahead. Splinter Cell Double Agent does ... Read Full Review

    Mega Man Anniversary Collection

    What a classic collection should be!

    I'm old. I mean old. As in, I actually care about politics, old. This also means that, as a gamer, I know my culture from my trash. And the 8-bit NES series known as Mega Man is culture, baby. It was formulaic, yet fun a... Read Full Review

    Mega Man X Collection

    MMXC is 16-bit/32-bit Goodness.

    Mega Man X Collection is one of those titles you'll either love or hate. Personally, I love it despite its obvious flaws. The disc features six of the games from the SNES and PS1 era Mega Man X series. For those not in t... Read Full Review

    Time Splitters 2 keeps it fun wit' a gun.

    Time Splitters 2 has the essentials of any good First Person Shooter. You've got the mandatory; Capture The Flag, Death Match, Team Death Match, Zones, etc... But it also offers a plethora of other game modes. This games... Read Full Review

    Proof that the mainstream isn't always right!

    During the 16-bit era, alotta genres that are now taken for granted were born. Doom brought us the First Person Shooter to PCs, Mortal Kombat brought Fatalities to 1 on 1 fighting, Madden and NBA Jam made sports games pe... Read Full Review

    Sonic Mega Collection

    Sonic Mega Collection is one of those titles that feeds the Old School appetite.

    I used to love my Sega Genesis. It had the usual 16-bit era classics: MK2, MK3, SF2, Shinobi, NBA Jam, Castlevania Bloodlines, Gun Star Heroes... And, of course, there's Sonic. Probably one of the coolest and funnest mas... Read Full Review

    Once again the guys at Epic Games get it right. UT3 ROCKS!

    Unreal Tournament 3 doesn't innovate, but rather, it builds on what fans already love about the series. Those with mid-end rigs won't get the same visual quality as their high-end peers, but the sheer scale and frantic a... Read Full Review

    Unreal Tournament 2003 (Best Of)

    UT2003 gets the best parts of a FPS right.

    Unreal Tournament 2003 isn't a deep, complex, story driven, tactical first person shooter-and, frankly, I don't want it to be! That's not why I love the Unreal series. It gets the parts I bought it for right. Admittedly,... Read Full Review

    Mortal Kombat: Armageddon celebrates MK to the fullest!

    Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion is the greatest RPG out right now. Coolest thing is it's on PC, PS3 and XBox 360.

    Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion is, hands down, the greatest RPG ever made. IT redifines the term "fan controlled content". From the onset with designing your characters race, sex, initial abilities and appearance-i... Read Full Review

    Mortal Kombat: Deception succeeds in bringing what we love about the series to the 3D realm at last.

    Mortal Kombat: Deception is probably the fisrt 3D iteration of the series to do what I loved about the 2D titles. This means: multiple FATALITIES per karacter, DEATH TRAPS, over the top back stories, etc... The fighting ... Read Full Review

    RF2 is the closest Gamecube owners will get to a PC style FPS experience.

    RED FACTION 2 is as close as Nintendo Gamecube owners are going to get to a PC styled First Person Shooter. Not as good as Time Splitters 2 (let alone the follow-up "Future Perfect"), it has some cool points wh... Read Full Review
