    Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2

    Rated on January 14, 2013 by paullywog

    Short singleplayer is forgivable with solid multiplayer, which this game struggles to provide.

    If you've played a Call of Duty game before you know to expect a well rounded package of singleplayer and multiplayer components. Unfortunately, MW2 breaks this trend in the multiplayer department. ...

    In retrospect, Modern Warfare 1 is unbelievably good.

    I rented this game on 360 to beat it for achievements and in that way the 360 version is good. But this game's staying power is all about online and when you have to choose between 18 player or 50 pla...

    Resistance for PSP is a fine example of adapting a console franchise for on-the-go entertainment.

    Besides the obvious hurdle of lacking a second analog stick for controlling shooters, the PSP has proven it can pull one off regardless of this design cripple. Resistance packs in all the thrills and ...

    Halo ODST is a solid entry to the Halo franchise, adding a needed twist to the gameplay.

    For the first time in a Halo game, you play as a marine instead of the now-cliche master chief. It's a refreshing change, and your increased vulnerability means a more cautious play style. And yet, wi...
