    The Dynasty Warriors franchise continues to move in the wrong direction.

    Shin Sangoku Musou 6

    The Dynasty Warriors franchise continues to move in the wrong direction.

    Being a fan of Dynasty Warriors right back to DW 2, I must say that Dynasty Warriors 7 was a huge imporvement over DW6. Although, that's not saying much. Some of the play style heakens back to DW 2 and 3, although in my ... Read Full Review

    Fallout 3: Game of the Year Edition

    Get ready for bugs, glitches, crashes and more in the world of Fallout!

    Although virtually every friend I've got rushed out and bought Fallout 3 when it was first released, I decided to wait. Those crafty folks at Bethesda tend to release Game of the Year editions, with all content included.... Read Full Review

    Great anti-terrorist action!

    Tom Clancy's Rainbow Six Vegas

    Great anti-terrorist action!

    RB6: Vegas is, for a die-hard RB fan like me, a Godsend. Lots of sneaking, lots of firefights, lots of thermal vision, lots of high-tech weapons. GRAPHICS: 7 out of 10. Solid effort. The characters are realistic and d... Read Full Review

    Gundam Musou (PlayStation 3 the Best)

    Looks beautiful, cheap-shots will drive you nuts

    Dynasty Warriors Gundam will feel very familiar to any fans of Koei's Dynasty Warriors franchise. This installment, however, has players taking control of characters from the Gundam anime from Japan. It is an extremely... Read Full Review

    Geez, what a disappointment.

    Shin Sangoku Musou 5 Special

    Geez, what a disappointment.

    What a letdown. DW 6 for the PS 2...I'm a huge DW fan, all the way back to Dynasty warriors 2! I was looking forward to this game, as every version has been an improvement on the previous ones in one or more ways. Grap... Read Full Review

    This game isn't about "playing through as quickly as possible..."<br /> It's the Oscar-winner of video games!

    What can be said about Metal Gear Solid by Konami that hasn't been said? Rather than write a standard review, I'm going to address some "critics" comments who found fault in this, one of the greatest games ever made. Rea... Read Full Review

    Madden NFL 09

    The same game EA Sports released in 2001 with a few new gimmicks.

    Definitely, EA Sports' Madden 09 is just another addition to an over-rated mythology. When EA got the exclusive NFL license, I had a feeling things were going to go downhill, and I was right. GRAPHICS: The same graphics... Read Full Review

    World Champ paintball was a game that I kept an eye out for quite a while, because I thought "This could be fun, if they do it right." Well, THQ didn't do it right. Graphically, the game is nothing to write home about.... Read Full Review

    Excellent graphics, great story, great gameplay...what more do you want?

    Killzone for the PS 2 is a really great effort to create a science fiction FPS, that still has a "realistic" feel to it. The game has excellent graphics, among the best on the PS 2. The character effects are very realis... Read Full Review

    Tom Clancy's Rainbow Six Critical Hour

    Just too short; otherwise, not a bad game.

    There really isn't anything too bad about Critical Hour, which is a re-presentation of some Classic RB 6 levels from previous games. The main problem is that there are only seven missions in the single player campaign, ... Read Full Review

    Best of the series

    Being a huge fan of ROTk and DW franchises, it's difficult to select one game as the best Dynasty Warriors game. If I had to do it, DW 4 would be it. First off, the difficulty level is higher in DW 4 than in any of the ... Read Full Review
