    Wickedly fun, infuriatingly hard and continuously challenging. SC2 is the best of current-gen RTS to date.

    Starcraft II: Wings of Liberty

    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 Review

    Assassin's Creed 2 embraces next-generation design with flawless technological improvements in the PC version.

    Assassin's Creed II

    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 Review

    A beautiful sequel, Just Cause 2 aims to impress with great action and gameplay, despite lacking a little polish.

    Just Cause 2

    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 Review

    An inspired look at a world in chaos.

    Metro 2033

    An inspired look at a world in chaos.

    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 Review

    An adventuresome first-person shooter with modern weapons, exotic locations, extreme violence, and short game length.

    Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2

    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 Review

    A stylized first person shooter with skill levels, guns and grenade upgrades, repetitive goals, and a slow story.

    Borderlands

    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 Review

    The second in the OF series shines with beautiful graphics and sound realism, but suffers from a poor porting-syndrome

    Operation Flashpoint: Dragon Rising

    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 Review

    Risen

    A boring RPG with poor value.

    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 Review

    The Witcher: Enhanced Edition

    Suffers from severe camera and control issues that take a toll on it's great cinematic-value.

    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 Review

    Easy controls, great accessories, with slightly aged graphics. Nothing remarkable, but a light, rewarding experience.

    Dungeons & Dragons Online: Eberron Unlimited

    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 Review

    Interesting, Engaging Action Game

    Resident Evil 5

    Interesting, Engaging Action Game

    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 Review
