    Wait till this one is cheaper, do not spend full price.

    Guitar Hero: Van Halen

    Wait till this one is cheaper, do not spend full price.

    Activision and Neversoft have finally given Guitar Hero fans a game we have been crying for for a long time by following up their star treatments of Aerosmith and Metallica with a dedicated Van Halen effort. How did it t... Read Full Review

    A charming, colorful JRPG with excellent combat and a very different story.

    Trusty Bell: Chopin no Yume

    A charming, colorful JRPG with excellent combat and a very different story.

    Eternal Sonata defies description in many ways although it very much follows in the traditional footsteps of Japanese RPGs. Alot of credit goes to Tri-Crescendo for crafting a game around a story that many people would t... Read Full Review

    A glitchy port of a good game, but don't let the glitches stop you from enjoying it.

    Bully: Scholarship Edition

    A glitchy port of a good game, but don't let the glitches stop you from enjoying it.

    One thing is for certain - applying the sandbox environment Rockstar is famous for to a boarding school concept filled with school bullies, jocks, nerds, cheerleaders, greasers and townies is a great idea and for the mos... Read Full Review

    Serial killers, alcohol demons and a conspiracy.

    Condemned 2

    Serial killers, alcohol demons and a conspiracy.

    It was a happy day when the news broke that Monolith was making a sequel to their visceral and atmospheric first person brawler Condemned. The first game was an experiment in how to take a FPS fought with your fists to t... Read Full Review

    Stranglehold

    Stranglehold is a fun, fast-paced shooter with high production values.

    Stranglehold is a fun, fast-paced shooter with high production values and loads of great moments brought to us by Midway and the legendary action director John Woo. The game is relatively short (under 10 hours) but the g... Read Full Review

    Conan

    "Hither came Conan, the Cimmerian, black-haired, sullen-eyed, sword in hand, a thief, a reaver, a slayer..."

    THQ has done an admirable job the past few years of producing games that may not be AAA titles, but that are fairly solid and fun to play. I was still a bit skepitical, however, of Nihilistic developing the game after th... Read Full Review

    Forza Motorsport 2

    It's all about the cars...

    In the Forza world it is all about the cars. In this sequel to a very solid racing sim, Turn 10 improves on the formula they surprisingly nailed from the get go. This time however, there is the strong pull of achievement... Read Full Review

    Was I supposed to be a silent assassin?

    Assassin's Creed

    Was I supposed to be a silent assassin?

    I had a lot of preconceived notions of what Assassin's Creed was going to be like and I have to admit, I wasn't expecting to like the game all that much. Stealth is not my thing and I'm not a fan of spending long periods... Read Full Review

    "I will not let you die Jackie, you are mine."

    The Darkness

    "I will not let you die Jackie, you are mine."

    The Darkness is appropriately titled as it is a dark and brooding game filled with brutal violence, hard language and a visual style that befits the comic book roots from which the story came. It is not a game for everyo... Read Full Review

    Building a great foundation for a new series.

    Mass Effect

    Building a great foundation for a new series.

    Mass Effect is an ambitious beginning for Bioware's new IP that lays the ground work for future games set in this universe. The game is not without some technical issues, but the level of detail in the story and the RPG ... Read Full Review

    Bruce Lee

    That don't look like Bruce Lee...

    1984... I was 15, my parents had just gotten our first home computer and I was spending hours trying to get different games that I had copied from friends onto 5 1/4 floppy disks to run on our new Commodore 64. Most ... Read Full Review

    A great example of how to mess up a good series.

    Def Jam: Icon

    A great example of how to mess up a good series.

    Many years ago I purchased Def Jam: Fight for New York on a lark. I had heard some good feedback and I was looking for a fighting game at the time so I gave it a shot. I expected it to be a decent game, but was totally s... Read Full Review

    Colin McRae: DiRT

    Hang on, let me clear the mud out of my eyes...

    Codemasters has been making quality rally racing games for years and having been a fan of Colin McRae Rally 3 in particular, I was looking forward to their latest installment in the series. I can't say I'm a fan of the s... Read Full Review

    A Year With Animal Crossing

    Animal Crossing: Wild World

    A Year With Animal Crossing

    As those that have played it know, there really isn't much to this game. You have your boy or girl character, your humble house and a town with a half dozen other animal characters who move in and out. Your time can be s... Read Full Review
