    One of the great stories of gaming is dragged down by a repetitiveness that can annoy.

    Ryuu ga Gotoku

    Rated on July 09, 2010 by ratchet573

    One of the great stories of gaming is dragged down by a repetitiveness that can annoy.

    Yakuza, don't get me wrong, is a great game. The story is probably one of the few in gaming that is so great, so fresh, and so different,that it is what keeps you playing. The story is beautifully...

    Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2

    Rated on July 09, 2010 by ratchet573

    Call of Duty Modern Warfare 2 is bogged down my a lame campaign and having no meat.

    The problem with Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 is a problem that I wish games like this would not have. Its campaign was not great. The story was stupid, why it is that the United States and Russia m...

    Bioshock was an instant classic. <br />
Bioshock 2 is an uninspired, boring game that never gets anywhere.

    BioShock 2

    Rated on April 04, 2010 by ratchet573

    Bioshock was an instant classic. <br /> Bioshock 2 is an uninspired, boring game that never gets anywhere.

    The original Bioshock was a game that took first person shooters another step forward, adding an intriguing plot that was a lot more geared toward an adult crowd, a crowd who wanted to think more when...

    An amazing attempt at bringing Bourne to a console, but it falls short.

    Robert Ludlum's The Bourne Conspiracy

    Rated on July 09, 2009 by ratchet573

    An amazing attempt at bringing Bourne to a console, but it falls short.

    The easiest way to describe this game is "Shoot, Run, Puch, Shoot, Run Punch" and then it is broken up by a rather fun driving sequence. I easily beat this game in a day by the way, so it is a ren...

    Hitman: Blood Money

    Rated on July 09, 2009 by ratchet573

    Hitman Blood Money is a short, but very satisfying experience.

    Blood Money is the best game in the Hitman series hands down. Mostly because the controls are not the crap they were in the previous iterations, the missions don't seem like a chore and are actually f...

    This game could have been so much more if it were not so glitchy and had so many boring set pieces.

    X-Men Origins: Wolverine (Uncaged Edition)

    Rated on May 03, 2009 by ratchet573

    This game could have been so much more if it were not so glitchy and had so many boring set pieces.

    One thing I will say about this game is that it is quite possibly the best movie tie-in game ever. It does not suck as bad as half the crap that comes out alongside movies. But it still isn't great. ...

    A lot more problems than its predecessor, but still half way decent.

    Max Payne 2: The Fall of Max Payne

    Rated on April 26, 2009 by ratchet573

    A lot more problems than its predecessor, but still half way decent.

    Max Payne is one of my favorite games. Max Payne 2 is not. FIrst of all, this version has tons of slow downs, where there are so many enemies in the area, that the game runs slower than a turtle. ...

    MadWorld

    Rated on April 07, 2009 by ratchet573

    No guts, no glory?

    MadWorld is one crazy game. It is more violent than anything I have played in a long time. For a console that prides itself in cutesy games for everyone, MadWorld is the ultimate cute, the ultimate fa...

    The only sentence I can even think of is "What the hell?"

    Katamari Damacy is wierd. The story is not nonsensical, but is different froma normal video game, the gameplay is wierd, and everything else is wierd. Take for example, the King's giant bulge...I...

    Samurai Western is halfway decent, but has a lot of repetition

    Samurai Western looked cool. Which is why I rented it for a buck at Family Video. Because usually, cool looking stuff sucks. Samurai Western though, is a halfway decent game. One word describes t...

    How can a game featuring Bruce Campbell (and his chin) be bad?

    Evil Dead: A Fistful of Boomstick

    Rated on April 05, 2009 by ratchet573

    How can a game featuring Bruce Campbell (and his chin) be bad?

    The Evil Dead is one of the greatest series of horror movies ever. Their plots are cool (even if they sometimes are kind of hard to follow) and the action never lets up. Bruce Campbell may be one of t...

    Max Payne

    Rated on April 04, 2009 by ratchet573

    Max Payne is what third person shooters should model after today.

    Third person shooters nowadays mostly depend on a cover system, but Max Payne depends on tons of bullets, and lots of bullet time. I never played this game on any other system, so cannot compare i...

    Do you like Wolfenstein? Do you like your Wolfenstein with a side order of boring gameplay?

    Rated on April 04, 2009 by ratchet573

    Do you like Wolfenstein? Do you like your Wolfenstein with a side order of boring gameplay?

    Wolfenstein was one of the greatest shooters ever. It was an amazing achievement, and though it proclaimed itself to be "3D" it still gave some great moments. Mechanized Hitler? AWESOME! Then, ther...

    Eat Lead: The Return of Matt Hazard

    Rated on April 04, 2009 by ratchet573

    It's an alright game if your waiting for the next Gears of War installment.

    This game is one of those games that is hard to review, because it is supposed to parody itself. Does that mean that all the problems it has are supposed to add to the comedy? Whatever it means, th...

    If your CRACKING down on a good open world game, look elsewhere.

    Crackdown was really looking good. I saw the box art though, and automatically noticed the GTA similarities. But, it looked good. I stuck the sucker in and waited...and waited....and waited. Oh, cool ...

    The Orange Box

    Rated on January 23, 2009 by ratchet573

    Five games, one box

    Orange Box is the greatest deal in gaming history. First of all it comes with the amazing Half Life series, which I think deserves more respect than the Halo series. An amazing story, great gameplay, ...

    Though drawn out, Red Faction delivers a solid experience

    I like older shooters, and am obsessed with the old Quakes and Unreals...so going into this game, I couldn't wait to see what was going to happen. First of all, the fact that you can destroy nearly ...

    I went into Devil May Cry skeptically, scared that I was playing this game just because I needed to sate my thirst for a new god of war... But, I was pleasantly surprised. The games first cutscene ...

    A game that is great, but not on splinter cells standards

    Playing this game is nice because it gives you a little bit of background on Sam, but all the same, it also is really not good on splinter cells lines. Its graphics are really what bother me. The grap...
