    Warcraft II: Tides of Darkness

    A painfully short review on such an old classic.

    It's hard to believe 15 years has passed since the release of Warcraft 2, and while it didn't set the RTS world on fire (see StarCraft for that), it was for all people a far superior title to the original. Using the same... Read Full Review

    If only Forbidden Siren got its game crippling flaws sorted...

    I genuinely like Forbidden Siren. Its intertwining story, dreamy like settings and genuine feel of tension and fear are things I like. The things I don't like is the unintuitive controls, ridiculous spikes in difficulty ... Read Full Review

    Street Fighter IV (Collector's Edition)

    There's no denying the quality of this game, but it's not a truly revolutionary entry in the franchise.

    Part of the reason why Street Fighter 4 is considered to be a massive leap forward for the Street Fighter series is the leap into 3-D. While this is not the first time Street Fighter ventured into 3-D, Street Fighter 4 d... Read Full Review

    Criminally overlooked during the days of Resident Evil 2. Silent Hill offers the more effective scares ten years on.

    Silent Hill was released for the Sony Playstation and was quickly labeled as a Resident Evil clone. While to some degree that is correct, everything else about the game is considerably incorrect. The things that Silent H... Read Full Review

    Dead Space

    EAs first venture to the survival horror genre is perhaps one of the finest efforts this year.

    Dead Space was labeled as a Gears Of War/Resident Evil 4 rip off when it was first announced. I too thought the same and foolishly passed it off as a another mediocre EA game. But as the game got near to release, the pre... Read Full Review
