Spec Ops: The Line
People need to play this game. It has solid gameplay with a unique and gripping story. A satire of the military shooter.
Spec Ops The Line is a game that people need to play and it's a damned shame that it fell through the cracks mostly unnoticed. At worst, this game has a unique and gripping story with a somewhat p...
Mediocre game with too much repetition. The attempted story makes the over the top violence offensive rather than fun.
My summer of whoring trophies and working my way up the list of easiest platinums has actually taken me across a newer game, Prototype 2. I don't know if I have ever played a game that trivializes ...
But for some ridiculous design choices and frustrating AI, it could have been one of the best rpgs of this generation.
Dragon's Dogma is so close to being a hit. There's so much that's incredibly infuriating about this game while at the same time it's on the cusp of being something incredible. The unique multiplaye...
Game of Thrones
Tremendous story telling and decent Dragon Age Origins type gameplay help you forget the many flaws.
My first impressions of this game were not great. I fell asleep while playing the first two nights… normally not a great sign. But the more I played, the more I was hooked and that's primarily due to ...
Worst singleplayer I've ever played. Throw away co-op. The mp is fun and unique but very frustrating.
I honestly don't like to be right when it comes to video games because I'm so cynical about everything in the video game industry. If more than half my predictions came true then we would all be screw...
Kingdoms of Amalur: Reckoning
This game should have stayed an MMO. Boring, bland, lifeless world with absolutely no story.
This is a long meandering boring review for a long meandering boring game. All of the problems with KoA come down to the fact that it was originally planned to be an MMO. Objectively MMOs are awful...
The Darkness II
Good story, lots of options during combat but terrible and inappropriate cell shaded graphics. A decent rental.
I rented Darkness 2 as a result of boredom and an easy trophy list. Fortunately it was actually a decent game that I enjoyed playing. It's a short game that tells a simple but effective, dark and ...
Mass Effect 3
Problems with the story and the gameplay but overall such an incredibly epic experience.
Mass Effect 3 is one of the all time greatest video game experiences. An absolutely epic rollercoaster ride set again a creative and wonderful universe capping off one of the best video game series ev...
Incredibly unique game. I highly recommend that people give it a try.
I'm going to make a fairly bold statement that I'm not entirely convinced of myself. Asura's Wrath is like the Tree of Life of video games. I say this because the game is so unique and strange that it...
The Lord of the Rings: War in the North
A bit of a hidden gem if you're looking for a decent rental. Lots of bugs. Fairly strong combat and rpg elements.
I'm a sucker for all things Lord of the Rings which means I have played my share of terrible LOTR games. I wasn't expecting a masterpiece with LOTR War in the North, but I was hoping the game would be...
Second best mp I've ever played, but one of the worst sp experiences in the FPS genre.
Battlefield 3 is a difficult game to review. On the one hand the singleplayer and co-op are brutally bad. On the other hand the multiplayer is one of the best I have ever played. I'm a fan of games...
Spider-Man: Edge of Time
Just an awful waste of the potential that Shattered Dimensions created.
I hate Activision. I hate them so much. I swear they are bent on ruining video games for the entire world and have done more to destroy the industry then all the Jack Thompsons combined. Despite their...
Batman: Arkham City
Top to bottom this is a perfect game. Graphics, story, combat, controls, characters, collectibles etc etc.
Like most people, I was completely taken by surprise and blown away by Batman AA. This game wasn't just a decent comic book game, or even just great, it was outstanding. It raised the bar and revoluti...
The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim
I can see how people are loving this game but it really doesn't work for me.
I know that for a lot of people Skyrim is going to be their game of the year for 2011. I can certainly appreciate that, but similar to my opinion on Oblivion, I just don't like the game. Bethesda dese...
Uncharted 3: Drake's Deception
My favourite of the series but still a lot of gameplay issues.
I should probably tread carefully because I know there is a portion of the gaming population that loves the Uncharted series more than their unborn children. A harsh word against Nathan Drake equates ...
A bad PS2 game that shames the X-men.
X-Men Destiny is basically a mediocre early 2000s PS2 game and a squandering of my beloved X-men license. It's dull, short and repetitive. But for what it is... a sloppy trash rental, I found it to be...
A worthy successor to the greatest game ever made (Demon's Souls) but hampered by online issues.
Demon's Souls was and still is the best game I have ever played. Not my favourite game ever, but the best game ever. I play a lot of games and most of them are garbage... or at best, decent distractio...
Such a terrible ending (in terms of both content and quality) to a wonderful series.
Resistance was my favourite PS3 series. I loved the first two games, both singleplayer and multiplayer. That being said I almost didn't buy R3 because I'm stubborn, and forcing unbalanced Move support...
Deus Ex: Human Revolution
Incredible gameplay depth and choice, philosophical and cerebral story make this a GOTY front runner.
Deus Ex is a game that tries to do a lot... and pulls it off. While other games may do individual elements of Deus Ex slightly better (like shooting or stealth), as a whole, as an experience, Deus Ex ...
Transformers: Dark of the Moon
Doesn't even compare to the surprisingly awesome War for Cybertron.
I gave Transformers War for Cybertron my coveted second favourite game of 2010. Admittedly 2010 was a terrible year for games, but that should by no means diminish how I felt about this game. It was o...
Solid, great game but the "choice" is still lacking.
Much like with the first inFamous, I was going to avoid the game for whatever reason, ended up grabbing it over the slow summer months and was pleasantly surprised. inFamous 2 is a very solid game. ...
Alice: Madness Returns
Very poorly made game. Dull. Disappointing visually.
Top to bottom Alice Madness Returns is a very poorly made game. Alice suffers from every graphics issue under the sun. Pick any fancy pants technical term for graphics glitches and this game suffe...
LA Noire is absolutely brilliant.
LA Noire is nothing short of brilliant. Love it or hate it, it is one of those games that pushes the boundaries of video games as media and art. It stands as a beacon amongst the stale filth of the en...
I had high expectations but everything from the SMART system to the AI is just terrible. The game is downright awful.
Where to begin? I guess let's start with the worst feature. SMART. WTF were they thinking? If you want a smart movement system grab Crysis 2. The mp of Crysis 2 was woefully underappreciated in my...
Incredible game. Awesome puzzles. Co-op is great. The writing is outstanding.
The first Portal was an amazing and truly unique game. The puzzles were mind-bending. It hurt my brain thinking about warping the physics and twisting the rules of gravity while using portals to reach...
The best and most innovative FPS I've played since Killzone 2. Both the sp and mp rock and the graphics are incredible.
I was on the fence about buying Crysis 2 right up until the release date. But now, I am happy I made the decision to pick it up. Crysis is the best shooter, both singleplayer and multiplayer, that I h...
Dragon Age II
Takes a couple big steps backwards from the first game and adds nothing positive. Still really fun.
Before I start into my review I just wanted to make a special point of saying how ridiculously ignorant it is to take away auto-attack and force us to hit the 'x' button every two seconds. This has to...
They ruined Killzone 2 (my favourite online FPS) to sell Moves and 3D televisions.
Killzone 2 is still my favourite online shooter ever. I loved that game. I have never and will never play a game as much as I played Killzone 2. And like any true Killzone 2 fan I absolutely hate the ...
Dead Space 2
It is scary and gory to the point of being uncomfortable. The attention to detail, variety and polish are amazing.
I consider myself a pretty brave guy. Movies, books, whatever, they don't scare me. I've been in some pretty scary life and death situations where I used to work and I think I've dealt with it pretty ...
Mass Effect 2
I was looking forward to ME for a long time. Not what I expect but still an outstanding game.
Mass Effect 2. The Xbox series I wanted more than anything on the PS3. I had really high expectations for this game but my first impression was a little disappointing. In spite of my initial reservati...
Fallout: New Vegas
Glitchy and horribly broken but fun.
While it has been said numerous times, it's worth repeating, New Vegas is an expansion to Fallout 3. It's actually appalling how little effort was put into making this game different, even the smalles...
Castlevania: Lords of Shadow
Beautiful presentation but a dull and lifeless game with weak gameplay.
I avoid writing reviews before I have gotten a platinum, or at least finished a game because it's not fair to the game or the gamer. You have to give the game the benefit of the doubt and see it throu...
Enslaved: Odyssey to the West
Great characters and beautiful environment make this a game worth playing even if other areas fall short.
First off I would just like to say how happy I am there are no QTEs in Enslaved. I never realized how much I hated QTEs until they were gone. You are so much more immersed in the game without QTEs. Yo...
Prince of Persia: The Forgotten Sands
Wonderful platforming. Everything else is horrible.
Not much to say about this game. Some of the most enjoyable platforming I've played in a while. It takes some timing and thinking unlike your Uncharted just push up, down, left, right until he reaches...
Call of Duty: Black Ops
The great singleplayer story saves this mediocre, rushed game.
Let's get this out of the way. I hate Call of Duty. I hate Activision. I hate everything the series stands for. I hate that the same recycled military shooter can sell a billion copies while creative ...
Spider-Man: Shattered Dimensions
Don't believe the haters. This is a really fun game with great variety. Plenty of glitches and frustration but worth it.
This is one of the glitchiest and buggiest games I've played but... it's just so much fun. I love the variety. Each dimension feels unique, the tone, the combat, the story. It's not just a different s...
Great story crippled by poor gameplay.
This review has been sitting half finished on my laptop for too long so here it goes. Mafia 2 is a game with a great story and some good aspects combined with some really terrible gameplay. First th...
Dante's Inferno: Shinkyoku Jigoku-Hen
Decent game, worth playing.
I realize that Dante's Inferno has been out for quite some time now and I finally got around to playing it. It was originally going to a day one buy for me but it just kept slipping under the radar. ...
Star Wars: The Force Unleashed II
Way too short. No variety. No substance at all.
I've gone on record many times saying that I like short games. There's nothing wrong with a nice compact gaming experience. I would prefer a game where every level contributes something meaningful to ...
The game was better than I expected. Fun to play but there's still some issues. The graphics are terrible.
Disclaimer: If by some absolute fluke someone from Ubisoft is reading this, then I beg you to play infamous and pay attention to two important things. Prince of Persia and Assassins Creed were the two...
