    With just a bit more polish and advertising we could be looking at the next cult hit multiplayer PC FPS

    Nuclear Dawn

    Rated on February 02, 2012 by raven28256

    With just a bit more polish and advertising we could be looking at the next cult hit multiplayer PC FPS

    The Good: Solid, addictive gameplay Unique twist on the standard class-based multiplayer formula Great value; lots of fun for a cheap price The Bad: No real tutorial or way to practice Comm...

    Great concepts somewhat bogged down by glitches and missed potential.

    Alpha Protocol

    Rated on June 10, 2010 by raven28256

    Great concepts somewhat bogged down by glitches and missed potential.

    The Good: Much better degree of character customization (Skill wise) than many recent RPGs One of the better uses of moral choices in a long time Lots of subtle details in facial animations that ...

    inFAMOUS is an excellent open world superhero game well worth checking out if you own a PS3.

    inFamous

    Rated on June 01, 2009 by raven28256

    inFAMOUS is an excellent open world superhero game well worth checking out if you own a PS3.

    Pros: Smooth, easy-to-learn controls Interesting story with an effective plot twist at the end Good variety of superpowers that have different effects based on your Karma; Satisfying combat ...

    SOCOM: Confrontation is a game that just doesn't want you to play it

    SOCOM: U.S. Navy SEALs Confrontation

    Rated on January 22, 2009 by raven28256

    SOCOM: Confrontation is a game that just doesn't want you to play it

    This is my first outing into the SOCOM series. I never got into the PS2 games because I never had the hardware to get online, so I figured it would be a waste of money to buy a game from a series that...

    Valkyria Chronicles is a great new game that seemingly came out of no where.

    Senjou no Valkyria

    Rated on January 22, 2009 by raven28256

    Valkyria Chronicles is a great new game that seemingly came out of no where.

    I stumbled upon this game by mistake back when the possibility of a release outside Japan was still just that. After much praying to the gaming gods and more than a few small animals being sacrificed,...

    Uncharted has a lot of things going for it, with just enough issues to keep it from being truly fantastic.

    Uncharted: Drake's Fortune

    Rated on June 18, 2008 by raven28256

    Uncharted has a lot of things going for it, with just enough issues to keep it from being truly fantastic.

    The basic idea of Uncharted: Drake's Fortune is a common theme among action-adventure games and movies. In fact, put this game up on the silver screen and replace Drake with everyone's favorite whip-t...

    Dark Sector is what you get when Resident Evil 4 and Gears of War have a child that isn't quite as good as either.

    Dark Sector

    Rated on March 30, 2008 by raven28256

    Dark Sector is what you get when Resident Evil 4 and Gears of War have a child that isn't quite as good as either.

    So after about four years and a total revamp of the concept, Dark Sector finally comes out, with mixed results. Dark Sector follows a CIA black-ops agent named Hayden Tenno sent to a fictional former ...

    War Front: Turning Point isn't exactly bad, it's just a pretty generic Red Alert clone.

    War Front: Turning Point

    Rated on February 14, 2008 by raven28256

    War Front: Turning Point isn't exactly bad, it's just a pretty generic Red Alert clone.

    War Front: Turning point is a budget title by a pretty small company that came out roughly this time last year. I had played the demo and felt that it was a bit "meh" and never felt like buying it. I ...

    Lets just face it: The Orange Box is the best deal in gaming history.

    The Orange Box

    Rated on January 01, 2008 by raven28256

    Lets just face it: The Orange Box is the best deal in gaming history.

    Simply put, there is no such thing as a game offering more bang for your buck than The Orange Box collection. You are getting not one, not two, not even three, but FIVE AAA titles for $50, excluding t...

    While WiC lacks the complexity found in most modern RTS games, it is what every game should be: fun.

    World in Conflict (Collector's Edition)

    Rated on December 10, 2007 by raven28256

    While WiC lacks the complexity found in most modern RTS games, it is what every game should be: fun.

    No, World in Conflict doesn't require you to be a tactical genius, no it doesn't feature particularly complex gameplay. What it does deliver is a fun improvement over the Ground Control games with a m...

    Act of War is yet another one of those solid games that didn't get the attention it deserved.

    Act of War: Direct Action

    Rated on December 10, 2007 by raven28256

    Act of War is yet another one of those solid games that didn't get the attention it deserved.

    Like many other solid games that came before it, Act of War never got the publicity it really deserved and thus ended up in the bargain bin pretty fast. You can still find copies floating around on Am...

    Mass Effect is one of those games that may have some glitches and issues but the good parts overshadow them.

    Mass Effect

    Rated on November 29, 2007 by raven28256

    Mass Effect is one of those games that may have some glitches and issues but the good parts overshadow them.

    I'll be honest right here, I loved this game. I had started up a second play through, but I have decided against it. I think I'll wait until my memory of what happened in the game gets a bit foggy. An...
