Wickedly fun, infuriatingly hard and continuously challenging. SC2 is the best of current-gen RTS to date.
(--Multiplayer mini review only--) StarCraft 2 has taken a while to grow on me. I started my way to SC2 very slowly, by watching shoutcasts of Korean games with the excellent narration of HDStarCraft and Husky (YouTub... Read Full Review0 of 0 users found the following review helpful
Assassin's Creed 2 embraces next-generation design with flawless technological improvements in the PC version.
This is not a typical review as I am in the process of completing this title. > Expect to see a rendering of Florence that is detailed, accurate, and ridiculously huge. > A fantastic improvement from the first, Ass... Read Full Review0 of 2 users found the following review helpful
A beautiful sequel, Just Cause 2 aims to impress with great action and gameplay, despite lacking a little polish.
Just Cause 2 builds on it's predecessor's strengths-managing fun hellish, meaningless rampaging --but diminishes them with control, physics, and sound design that hurts its overall replay value. Based in a tropical lo... Read Full Review3 of 3 users found the following review helpful
Metro 2033 is a frightening and new look at a serious situation that will occur if we do not take nukes seriously. A world of lost civilization. The game's focus is on the battle between the remaining human colonies i... Read Full Review2 of 4 users found the following review helpful
An adventuresome first-person shooter with modern weapons, exotic locations, extreme violence, and short game length.
Call of Duty Modern Warfare 2 cannot be compared to its predecessors. Its fun, fast-paced story can be moving but it's strength is the surreal first-person shooting experience. The protagonist (Soap, or "the gun") tra... Read Full Review4 of 22 users found the following review helpful
A stylized first person shooter with skill levels, guns and grenade upgrades, repetitive goals, and a slow story.
Borderlands is a uniquely rendered game that places the player in a world where bandits, monsters, and guns rule an empty desert landscape in the vein of Fall Out 3, with a few interesting and addicting twists. What i... Read Full Review11 of 11 users found the following review helpful
The second in the OF series shines with beautiful graphics and sound realism, but suffers from a poor porting-syndrome
Firstly, I must say I have been a die-hard fan of Operation Flashpoint since high school, when a friend introduced me to "an awesome sniper game". The graphics were different then, but the bulk of the second in the se... Read Full Review1 of 3 users found the following review helpful
To play Risen, you need a lot of patience. You need to ignore these facts: * Menus are cheap, user-notifications and control hints are completely absent making the game a "guess the button" adventure rather than a who... Read Full Review6 of 64 users found the following review helpful
The Good and Bad: * Great movie-like introduction. Draws in the gamer instantly with a villain, and magic. * Fair graphics, some cheap solutions were used to make it immersive. The trees in the foreground lack neede... Read Full Review3 of 44 users found the following review helpful
Easy controls, great accessories, with slightly aged graphics. Nothing remarkable, but a light, rewarding experience.
If this is your first MMORPG, you won't be disappointed. The game is free to download --and once you complete the main missions you can continue your journey... with a small price for each additional "mod". However, t... Read Full Review0 of 0 users found the following review helpful
The natural standard for Resident Evil games has become the question: "Is it scary?" Resident Evil 5 (or Biohazard, in Japan) is rarely scary...but that standard just isn't suitable for this generation of the popular zom... Read Full Review3 of 6 users found the following review helpful
Each new generation of expensive titles brings with it a joy: fancy new graphics, fancy new levels, pretty new cars...and that's what you can come to expect of Need for Speed: Shift. It arrives with all the accouterme... Read Full Review2 of 3 users found the following review helpful
