    Homefront

    Excellent - although short - story tagged onto a generic shooter that offers some intrigue.

    Homefront is a unique, intriguing take on the near-future, and while the campaign is quite short, and gameplay doesn't necessarily offer much to boast about, the story itself is enough to pique the interest of an avid ga... Read Full Review

    Good, but nothing special.

    Killzone 3

    Good, but nothing special.

    To be perfectly fair, I'm new to the whole Killzone series. I've heard all the usual hype about it, and was finally intrigued after seeing some gameplay commentary via YouTube. "Why not?" I asked, and dove right in. T... Read Full Review

    It's a flawed game, but goes to a realm which games have very rarely explored, and changes up the survival gaming genre.

    SOS: The Final Escape

    It's a flawed game, but goes to a realm which games have very rarely explored, and changes up the survival gaming genre.

    Disaster Report is a game that quietly came and went for most Americans. Boasting a major franchise in Japan, the entire appeal never seemed to catch on for those on the other side of the Pacific. However, despite some o... Read Full Review

    I can't believe I'm saying this. I really can't. But yes, it's good. It's as good as everyone guffaws about.

    Call of Duty: Black Ops

    I can't believe I'm saying this. I really can't. But yes, it's good. It's as good as everyone guffaws about.

    It's good, okay. OKAY? Are you happy? I'm admitting it, it's good. I used to rag on COD gamers for the absolutely low quality of story and gaming that their games provide. Campaigns that were almost silly in nature, a... Read Full Review

    Nothing fancy. Almost insultingly simple and mediocre. Hardly worthy of hype at all, much less what it receives.

    Dead Rising 2

    Nothing fancy. Almost insultingly simple and mediocre. Hardly worthy of hype at all, much less what it receives.

    I freely admit that I was less than amused after I got my hands on Dead Rising 2. Given that I don't have a 360, I missed out on the first Dead Rising game, and hadn't really bothered to do any research on the game. I ha... Read Full Review

    Katamari Damacy Tribute

    A throwback to all the good things the Katamari series has brought us. A bit too recycled, but c'mon, it's Katamari!

    Katamari Forever, yet again, comes sweeping in (or rolling, rather) to build up another nation of followers on a PS3 exclusive release. The idea of this game was to pay homage to Katamari's previous incarnations, taking ... Read Full Review

    The Bouncer

    An odd, atypical sort of fighting game.

    The Bouncer is an odd, atypical sort of fighting game. Unlike its traditional brethren - Street Fighter, Tekken, Soul Calibur - The Bouncer assumes more of the feel of a RPG with the same traits as a fighting game. In fa... Read Full Review

    ICO

    Another cult classic, visually stunning, vibrantly immersion game by Team Ico.

    Ico runs in the same vein as Shadow of the Colossus, all titles of the cult classic churning development team, Team Ico. The plot is subtle, yet deep, and you get the feeling as Ico - our protagonist - saves the princess... Read Full Review

    New features for a new generation of Final Fantasy releases. While new isn't always good, Final Fantasy XIII plays well.

    Final Fantasy XIII takes the series in a new direction as it spearheads the famed series on the latest series of next-gen consoles. With mind-numbingly beautiful graphics and intense detail put into this release, Final F... Read Full Review

    The Sims 3

    A little here and a little there compared to its predecessors, Sims 3 remains a fabulous game, even to the old fans.

    The Sims series makes its first venture in a new direction now that it was abandoned by Maxis. With EA at the helm, plenty of new and excellent features have been introduced. Your Sims now inhabit a cohesive town, free o... Read Full Review

    BioShock

    Solid gameplay, great story... if BioShock suffers some anything is a major case of the Ayn Rand and typicality.

    BioShock definitely carries a huge sense of uniqueness. While the combat system is that of your basic FPS, the story behind BioShock fleshes out this adventure through a dystopian underworld of oddity and grotesque myste... Read Full Review

    Battlefield 1943

    Exciting and fun, but nothing special.

    While this isn't the most exciting game you'll play in ages, the game modes are exciting and interesting. There are only three islands as playable levels. They're all very malaeable for combat, and the different variants... Read Full Review

    Gritty and brutal survival-horror game that is something like a 9 year old's worst nightmare. Flawed, but still great.

    Rule of Rose

    Gritty and brutal survival-horror game that is something like a 9 year old's worst nightmare. Flawed, but still great.

    Games that bring controversy with their releases are always intriguing releases, and Rule of Rose is no different. An independently developed game, published by Atlas in North America, Rule of Rose follows the story of J... Read Full Review

    While it stands excellently written, well executed, visually pretty, and intriguing, it can dull. Fun but dull.

    Red Dead Redemption

    While it stands excellently written, well executed, visually pretty, and intriguing, it can dull. Fun but dull.

    Working as if it were the great-grandfather of Grand Theft Auto IV, Grand Theft Horse is based in the scenic dirtplot of Las Venturas right after the Spanish colonials got kicked out in favour of hicks with revolvers. Un... Read Full Review

    Shadow of the Colossus

    Team Ico leaves a legacy with arguably one of the best action-adventure titles of all time.

    Shadow of the Colossus is arguably one of the greatest action-adventure games ever created. Developed by the esteemed and greatly hailed game developers, Team Ico, Shadow of the Colossus is the prequel to the developers ... Read Full Review

    Heavy Rain

    A hyper-realistic 'interactive storytelling' murder-mystery that completely immerses you in every single passing scene.

    I'm the type of soul who - whenever I get involved in something - I look for a few select things; things that set whatever I'm getting into apart from the pack. In respect to video games, I look for: innovation, good gra... Read Full Review

    Grand Theft Auto IV

    Truly epic in scope, you get everything you could hope for in a great immersive action-simulation hybrid in this series.

    When it comes to a series, one expects many motifs to be strongly apparent. And when Grand Theft Auto comes to mind, you expect several things. Sandbox environments and the ability to freely roam, immersive world that at... Read Full Review

    The Movies

    Wonderfully intriguing, offering extreme amounts of control and fascinating gameplay, but can become a lot to handle.

    The lights, the camera flashes, the red carpet... it's all quite the fascinating experience to think about what the lucky and superrich movie-folk do with their time. Hollywood is a big business, all about making the big... Read Full Review

    Don't expect anything too novel here. Fun and interesting, but easily falls prey to the cues of low expectations.

    There it was, just calling out like a siren. Resistance was sitting their quietly, coyly, trying to lure unexpected gamers in. And it certainly has a good basis for appeal: attracting the crowds in search of alien apocol... Read Full Review
