    Broken Garbage

    Borderlands: The Secret Armory of General Knoxx

    Broken Garbage

    This will be right to the point and quick - a rarity for my other reviews. The main setting is 'T-bone' junction. Highways then split out in opposite directions for the map. The highways are broken up by parts you hav... Read Full Review

    The most atmospheric trial and error game you can play this gen.

    LIMBO

    The most atmospheric trial and error game you can play this gen.

    This generation has provided some interesting platforming games, Braid for example. Limbo has come along and provided another great experience, from an artistic standpoint, but that is about where the good news ends. ... Read Full Review

    SMB3 + SMW + wonky motion controls - options to play it your way = mixed bag but still good.

    New Super Mario Bros. Wii

    SMB3 + SMW + wonky motion controls - options to play it your way = mixed bag but still good.

    NSMB Wii is a throw-back to classic 2D platforming. It is a good game, despite it's quirks, has some new features that will appeal to some and frustrate others. It follows along the lines of SMB3 in most aspects (worlds,... Read Full Review

    2D fans rejoice! This is the best 2D game since the Metroid Series of 2D.

    Shadow Complex

    2D fans rejoice! This is the best 2D game since the Metroid Series of 2D.

    If you haven't heard the buzz about this game, or you don't understand why it has any buzz, you have either been away for a while or you hate the XBLA for some fanboyish reason. Worst case is you heard about it, and that... Read Full Review

    Puzzle Quest: Galactrix

    If you ran out of all other puzzle game options, go ahead and pick this up...

    I'm sick of 7.5-8.0 review scores being 'average', so with this review of Galactrix I'm giving it the score a game that is average, average leveling, average mechanics, poor story, but very addicting deserves. First, ... Read Full Review

    Starts out strong, has a rough middle, gets back on track and then blows up in your face.

    Star Wars: The Force Unleashed

    Starts out strong, has a rough middle, gets back on track and then blows up in your face.

    Where to start... The basic story line is: you are Darth Vader's secret apprentice, off to hunt Jedi in amazing 3rd person. No one is supposed to know about you so your orders are destroy everything and everyone. Prett... Read Full Review

    The KOTOR of this generation: Minus Star Wars; Plus aiming guns.

    Mass Effect

    The KOTOR of this generation: Minus Star Wars; Plus aiming guns.

    For a brief summary, Mass Effect (ME) will grow on you. It suffers from some poor elements and design issues, but overall comes out to be a good package. The story line and plots are sure to grip just about anyone tha... Read Full Review

TW '09 is a great game for the Wii only owners, or people not as picky as me.

    Tiger Woods PGA Tour 09 All-Play

    <br /> TW '09 is a great game for the Wii only owners, or people not as picky as me.

    This is going to be a dicey review, seeming I need to write it for two very different audiences. You must also realize, unlike many review sites, this review does not exist in a 'bubble'. I make no assumptions of who the... Read Full Review

    Braid is the The Sophisticated Persons Platformer (Spoiler Free)<br />

    Braid is amazing from beginning to end. From the intro screen, which is actually part of the game, to the epilogue this game will please. The graphics go for a watercolor feel and are actually quite good looking in motio... Read Full Review

    Of Rhythm games... Rock Band is King.

    Foreword: If you are a Wii/PS2 only owner this review is not for you (unless you plan on getting an X360 or PS3 in the future). The game is too different on those platforms and I haven't played it on those platforms to c... Read Full Review

    Bioshock is amazing; it is just that simple.

    BioShock

    Bioshock is amazing; it is just that simple.

    First off lets here is what is amazing about it: 1) The game is in First Person view, but because of the different ways you can customize your character, you can play it as a FPS or FPSneaker. And you can mix the stra... Read Full Review

    If you like protecting stupid AI players this is your game! Annoyingly Frustrating.

    Star Wars Rogue Leader: Rogue Squadron II

    If you like protecting stupid AI players this is your game! Annoyingly Frustrating.

    To sum things up, the first level is ok, but it is all downhill from there. There are 5 enemies in the game: Tie*, Star Destroyers, AT AT's, AT-ST's, and turrets. Every mission revolves around killing these while protec... Read Full Review

    While fans of the point-click adventure should buy in an instant, the rest of us better rent it first.

    Zack & Wiki: Quest for Barbaros' Treasure

    While fans of the point-click adventure should buy in an instant, the rest of us better rent it first.

    I finally decided I better play the Wii Forums 'game to mention' when the 'Where are the good games for Wii?' is mentioned. In short I wasn't overly impressed but can see why some people will love it. While I thought ... Read Full Review

    Metroid is a great classic. Those that didn't play it already though: Pick up Metroid: Zero Mission instead.

    Metroid

    Metroid is a great classic. Those that didn't play it already though: Pick up Metroid: Zero Mission instead.

    From GS review I wanted to add my comments in a review: I'm marking this as a Old-School; If you can't tolerate an old school game then skip to the last paragraph otherwise, read on; I'll slam the negatives: Navig... Read Full Review

    Trauma Center: Second Opinion

    Looking for a non-casual game for the Wii? Here it is.

    After hearing about this game a bit I thought I better try it out. Here are some misconceptions that must be removed before playing though: 1. It is not a Medical or Surgery Simulator 2. It is set in the future a littl... Read Full Review

    A great game that is worth playing by any starwars fan.

    I actually started playing a while ago and tried out the 'blog' feature as I played it. More details are in there, but I thought I should at least say this game is worth playing by any RPG or Starwars fan, unless you hav... Read Full Review

    MVP 06 NCAA Baseball

    NCAA 06 Baseball finally provides a method for creating your own team and rules not seen since the SNES days.

    As my review title points out I want a baseball game, not some fancy MBL or NCAA knock-off. I could care less about real players or real teams (playing against them is fun though), but the real fun comes from being the e... Read Full Review
