    I went from despising the game to having a fair bit of respect for it. I suppose that should say something.

    Turok

    Rated on February 05, 2008 by soundofspeet

    I went from despising the game to having a fair bit of respect for it. I suppose that should say something.

    ((EDITORIAL NOTE: I rated the game 7.5, but I went back and played more multiplayer, and I decided I STILL haven't given the game a fair shake, so I'm bumping the rating up to 8.5.)) Anyone who has...

    I wanted so badly for all the critics to be wrong. They weren't.

    TimeShift

    Rated on November 09, 2007 by soundofspeet

    I wanted so badly for all the critics to be wrong. They weren't.

    I've been pushing for Timeshift ever since I first heard of it. I got my hands on the old demo, and I've been eagerly awaiting its release with bated breath, so bear in mind, I'm not an automatic hate...

    Phantom Dust is worth the money, BUDGET PRICE ASIDE!

    Phantom Dust

    Rated on October 23, 2007 by soundofspeet

    Phantom Dust is worth the money, BUDGET PRICE ASIDE!

    Now, let's forget for a moment that I mentioned a budget price at all. We are looking at: -100+ Single player game missions. -250+ Skills and abilities to learn and employ on the battlefield. -An in...

    Yaris is not a racing game. Yaris is a tube-shooter. Yeah, I'm scratching my head over that one too.

    Yaris

    Rated on October 11, 2007 by soundofspeet

    Yaris is not a racing game. Yaris is a tube-shooter. Yeah, I'm scratching my head over that one too.

    In a world of looping tubes, where symbolic icons of gasoline and driving hazards rule the streets, one brand of car stands up to fight against the tyranny with a hybrid engine and a hood-mounted lase...

    One order of micro-transaction-fueled Tetris with a side of water, coming right up!

    Tetris Splash

    Rated on October 03, 2007 by soundofspeet

    One order of micro-transaction-fueled Tetris with a side of water, coming right up!

    If you've ever played Tetris before, nothing about this package will surprise you. Its main hook is that you're playing Tetris in front of a customizable fish tank. That's about the extent of the gimm...

    Shadowrun's impressive gameplay depth makes other FPSes begin to seem a little shallow in the multiplayer department.

    Shadowrun

    Rated on September 27, 2007 by soundofspeet

    Shadowrun's impressive gameplay depth makes other FPSes begin to seem a little shallow in the multiplayer department.

    Shadowrun is the latest first person shooter from FASA Interactive, known for its Mechassault and Crimson Skies franchises. FASA has brought another of its RPG franchises to Xbox, and while the transi...

    Double Dragon

    Rated on May 19, 2007 by soundofspeet

    There's a lot of love and care given to this classic by Empire, and it shows.

    Double Dragon is a seminal beat-em-up from Technos Japan that was released in arcades back in 1987. It was a tried-and-true great back in the day. It's even spawned many imitators and worthy successor...

    Jetpac Refuelled embodies the essence of what made all those old-school games back in the day so fun.

    Jetpac Refuelled

    Rated on March 28, 2007 by soundofspeet

    Jetpac Refuelled embodies the essence of what made all those old-school games back in the day so fun.

    Back in the day, folks didn't have NES. Yeah, wrap your brain around that...heh. No, when it came to playing video games that were worth anything, you turned to a computer. One such computer was known...

    It's no little secret that fans have been eagerly awaiting the release of Castlevania: Symphony of the Night with bated breath, and now it's here. Thing is, something feels off with this Xbox Live Arc...

    While you won't find as many weapons or themes as you probably expect, the multiplayer more than makes up for it!

    Worms

    Rated on March 07, 2007 by soundofspeet

    While you won't find as many weapons or themes as you probably expect, the multiplayer more than makes up for it!

    When most people think Worms, they likely think of Worms Armageddon, what many Worms fans consider to be the Holy (Hand Grenade...) Grail of Worms. Worms Armageddon was known for having quite a few th...

    Don't think that, just because it's Final Fantasy, it's going to blow you away. It's not. It is, however, still good.

    Final Fantasy III

    Rated on December 28, 2006 by soundofspeet

    Don't think that, just because it's Final Fantasy, it's going to blow you away. It's not. It is, however, still good.

    Final Fantasy III is the lastest Final Fantasy adventure, released on the Nintendo DS as the final missing link in the series. Prior to this release, there has been no official release of the game sta...

    Gameplay this fresh doesn't come around often enough these days!

    RoboBlitz

    Rated on December 06, 2006 by soundofspeet

    Gameplay this fresh doesn't come around often enough these days!

    RoboBlitz is a title that's hard to place in the genre conventions we're used to. Part platformer, part puzzler, part third-person shooter, this innovative title puts out-of-the-box thinking to use in...

    This game, despite its hair-tearing difficulty, and its criminal balance issues, has found its place in my heart.

    Small Arms

    Rated on November 23, 2006 by soundofspeet

    This game, despite its hair-tearing difficulty, and its criminal balance issues, has found its place in my heart.

    Small Arms is a Smash Bros./Viewtiful Joe Red Hot Rumble styled game with an interesting twist: Instead of just pummeling your foes with your hands and feet, blow them to bits with guns! The premise w...

    TimeSplitters: Future Perfect

    Rated on March 25, 2005 by soundofspeet

    Play this game if you are: A Goldeneye fan, an FPS fan, or just a fan of a good laugh now and again.

    I promise this to nearly everyone that gets this game: You will love it. Timesplitters is a FPS from a prestigious bloodline. The folks of Free Radical were the original Goldeneye 64 team. Needles...

    The Typing of the Dead

    Rated on March 16, 2005 by soundofspeet

    Despite the graphics, this is a must play!

    Let's get the bad stuff out of the way: The graphics are very blocky, very ugly, very bland, etc. The character models are blocky, ugly, bland, etc. The voice acting is laughably horrific. (Takes...
