    A very solid sandbox shooter

    How do we judge games these days? More than ever, I find that they’re often judged outside of truly relevant context, such as “how much was it hyped?” or “who developed it?” A game’s ... Read Full Review

    Marvel Heroes

    To free, or not to free?

    To free, or not to free? That is the question. And it's really the one you need to ask before you play this. I think the shine of the free2play model has really started to wear off, as users become wise to what th... Read Full Review

    Deus Ex: Human Revolution

    A reboot of a gaming classic, ten years later.

    I would think this game a hard one to relate to if you didn't play the original when it came out. Fortunately for me, the original Deus Ex was released right at the height of my gaming experience, a little while after Ha... Read Full Review

    Shoddy work.  At least it's free2play.

    PlanetSide 2

    Shoddy work. At least it's free2play.

    Planetside 2-an epic space MMO featuring three way faction combat, Rpg elements, vehicle combat, etc. set on any number of giant space maps. Sounds too good to be true? You might be right… Let's just say I'm glad I go... Read Full Review

    Fallout: New Vegas

    Tried some new things, some worked

    Since the beginning of Fallout, whoever is producing it at the time seems to sit down, think of 50 great ideas for the game, actually implement 30 of them, and make about 15 of them work. That's exactly how this game ... Read Full Review

    The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim

    A mix of Morrowind's massive feel, and Oblivion's accessibility.

    Like most of you I've been waiting for this game since the moment I got done with Oblivion. For me, and a lot of other Elder Scrolls fans, Oblivion was a let down in a lot of ways. Not that the game didn't present a so... Read Full Review

    Rob some people in fairly convincing fashion.

    I awaited this game for months and months, and was overwhelmed when it finally came out. I mean, after all, there hasn't really been a game that tackles this premise to date, and there were quite a few people that were ... Read Full Review

    The pretty new shine wears fast in this game.

    Despite quite a few glaring flaws, I really enjoyed NBA 2k10. There were some things in it that annoyed the hell out of it, but I was able to push through the bad parts and ended up enjoying it a lot. I was glad for th... Read Full Review

    Hitman knock-off through the eyes of a WWII Russian spy.

    I am definitely attracted to this kind of game. After reading the Gamespot review on this thing a few years ago I knew I had to try it at least once. So when it came around on the Steam bargain bin sales, I picked i... Read Full Review

    How do you rate a game? How do you give it a "score"? I'm sitting here looking at the 6.0 that this game got from Gamespot, and it's that same 6.0 that kept me away from it for so long. I can kind of understand wher... Read Full Review

    Final Fantasy Tactics: Shishi Sensou

    A portable version of one of the best games ever.

    I was very upset when I found out that the PSP players got this, while the NDS guys were stuck with Final Fantasy Tactics A2... a mere shadow of this classic. Simply put, I basically bought a PSP to play this game, and ... Read Full Review

    Another awesome shooter from Valve.

    Akumajou Dracula X: Gekka no Yasoukyoku (PSOne Books)

    Gamespot hit the nail on the head, possibly the best 2-D side-scroller ever.

    I heard a lot of flak tossed towards the game over the years, mostly by people who had never played it a single time in their life. Well actually, 100% by people who had never played it. It was a 3D enhanced 2D game in... Read Full Review

    Final Fantasy Tactics (PSOne Books)

    One of the, hands down, best Final Fantasy games ever.

    This game was such a surprise to everyone when it came out, myself included. The class system, the movement/attack + turn based combat, the 999/999 health system as opposed to the 9999/9999 system. It was, in many rega... Read Full Review

    A game that could have been every bit as good as it failed to be.

    I played the demo for this and was amazed. At first glance the game is somewhat akin to a third person Morrowind/Oblivion game set in a not entirely dissimilar world. There is no visual customization to your charac... Read Full Review
