Dragon Age II
Dragon Age 2 is a worthy follow-up that's marred by too much streamlining.
BioWare's Dragon Age Origins was a hit with critics and fans when it was released in 2009 so a sequel was only inevitable. When the announcement came shortly after the release of the expansion, Awaken...
Assassin's Creed II
Assassin's Creed 2 PC improves upon the original in almost every way.
Assassin's Creed 2 finally arrived on the PC in March, 2010 after being released for Xbox 360 and PS3 in November, 2009. The release wasn't smooth as the PC version was saddled with one of the harshes...
Mafia II is more of an interactive experience than an actual game.
The Mafia have been explored extensively in films and television such as "The Godfather" and "The Sopranos." The original Mafia was released on PC (later ported to Xbox and PlayStation 2) in 2002 to c...
Tron Evolution is a solid, if ultimately uninspired and forgettable third-person action game.
With Tron Legacy, the sequel to the cult classic Tron from 1986 arriving in theaters in December, Disney has been doing a massive marketing push which includes comics, action figures and of course, vi...
It may lack polish, but Alpha Protocol is one of the most underrated games of 2010.
Besides Splinter Cell, not many games have really dealt with the spy genre. Yes, there's James Bond games but those are licensed, not original. Now Obsidian Entertainment brings us Alpha Protocol for ...
Grand Theft Auto: Episodes from Liberty City
You'll still need a supercomputer but Grand Theft Auto IV Episodes from Liberty City is an excellent expansion pack.
When Grand Theft Auto IV was released on consoles, it received unanimous praise from critics and gamers. The story was a little different on PC as the game was horribly optimized. A number of patches ...
Spider-Man: Shattered Dimensions
It's tongue-in-cheek tone make Spider-Man Shattered Dimensions AMAZING!
With the release of Rocksteady's Batman Arkham Asylum, which went on to earn critical and commercial success, Activision tries another stab with Spider-Man. Spidey games have always been fun but they ...
Call of Duty: Black Ops
A stagnant franchise and technical issues mar Call of Duty Black Ops on the PC but nevertheless, it's still fun.
Death, taxes, Call of Duty. These are the things we deal with year in, year out. Treyarch once again takes the reins from the beleaguered Infinity Ward with the seventh installment, Call of Duty Black...
James Bond 007: Blood Stone
The gameplay isn't original but 007 Blood Stone perfectly captures the spirit and tone of the Daniel Craig films.
After Pierce Brosnan exited the Bond franchise with "Die Another Day," a worldwide search began for the next Bond before finally settling on Daniel Craig. The new Bond film, Casino Royale, was a reboo...
Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic II: The Sith Lords
Simply another masterpiece compared to the original, despite the occasional bug that might frustrate some players.
KOTOR was an absolutely great game, giving players THE BEST Star Wars experience to date. KOTOR 2 had a hard act to follow and while it was developed by Obsidian, the game is still considered to be on...
Tom Clancy's Splinter Cell Double Agent
Splinter Cell Double Agent is great stealth game with superb visuals but a few crash bugs mar the experience somewhat.
This is the first Splinter Cell game I've ever played (no, really, its true) and I was quite impressed. The game manages to draw you into the experience and really make you feel like you are working f...
The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion
Elder Scrolls IV Oblivion represents the hallmark of RPG's and in the history of video games in general.
RPG's have come a long way. Blizzard made the genre popular with its Diablo franchise, but Bethesda wanted to one-up them and crafted one of the most beloved RPG's series' of today. Elder Scrolls IV O...
Tom Clancy's Splinter Cell Chaos Theory
Splinter Cell Chaos Theory is THE best stealth game to date!!!
After playing Double Agent PC and going through the frustrating amount of bugs, I decided to go get the 3rd installment of the series, Chaos Theory. Now THIS is a stealth game! The story is a little c...
S.T.A.L.K.E.R.: Shadow of Chernobyl
S.T.A.L.K.E.R. delivers a great FPS/RPG experience that offers great replayability and an interesting premise.
When I first saw the box art, I was generally unimpressed. Seemed kind of generic but as I read more of the previews, the game grew on me and so I snatched it up when it came out. This game succeeds w...
The Elder Scrolls IV: Knights of the Nine
Elder Scrolls IV Knights Of The Nine gives you another reason to revisit the world of Oblivion at a budget price.
I have noticed that Bethesda has kept Oblivion fresh and exciting with their downloadable plug-ins with new single quests. Knights Of The Nine is the most ambitious and delivers a full quest line and ...
The Elder Scrolls IV: Shivering Isles
Elder Scrolls IV The Shivering Isles provides one nutty and imaginative adventure in this expansion pack.
This is the first full-fledged expansion to Oblivion and boy, is it quite an expansion. The Shivering Isles adds an entirely new land to explore called...the Shivering Isles!!! It's ruled by Sheogorat...
The Elder Scrolls III: Morrowind
Despite its age, Elder Scrolls III Morrowind is still one of the best RPG's to ever grace the PC.
I actually got Elder Scrolls IV Oblivion first before getting this. Oblivion seemed to represent the very best in RPG's and so I decided to check out the previous installment, Morrowind. Morrowind is ...
Fallout: New Vegas
There are bugs and technical issues galore but it doesn't make Fallout New Vegas any less addicting and fun.
Fallout 3 was one of the best games I've had the pleasure to play in 2008 so when a new title called New Vegas was announced, I was brimming with excitement as the release date neared. Fallout New Veg...
Star Wars: The Force Unleashed II
It's still fun but Star Wars The Force Unleashed II never reaches the heights of its predecessor.
Despite all its flaws, I greatly enjoyed the original Force Unleashed and being a hardcore Star Wars fan, the sequel was of my most anticipated games this year. Unfortunately, The Force Unleashed 2 en...
Kane & Lynch 2: Dog Days
Kane & Lynch 2 Dog Days offers some frenetic action but the whole package just isn't worth full price.
The original Kane & Lynch, subtitled Dead Men, was a flawed gem but the release was surrounded with controversy when it was rumored that it led to the firing of a GameSpot employee after he gave it a ...
Starcraft II: Wings of Liberty
The fundamentals made be the same but StarCraft 2 Wings of Liberty displays Blizzard's penchant for perfection.
The original StarCraft was developed/published by Blizzard Entertainment in 1998 and has become one of the most critically acclaimed PC games of all time. The expansion pack, Brood War, received the s...
BioShock 2 includes mutliplayer and a few improvements but this sequel offers up more of the same.
BioShock was one of the most anticipated PC games of 2007 since it was the spiritual successor to System Shock. Although the gameplay was nothing revolutionary, it told an amazing story heavily influe...
Battlefield: Bad Company 2
If nothing else, Battlefield Bad Company 2 blows Call of Duty Modern Warfare 2 out of the water.
Although Modern Warfare 2 sold 14 million copies worldwide, the game was a disappoint to PC gamers due to its console-limited multiplayer. The single player wasn't exactly great either with its manufa...
Metal Gear Solid 2: Substance
Despite the poor conversion to PC, Metal Gear Solid 2 Substance is one of the best games of the past decade.
Metal Gear Solid 2 Sons of Liberty was one of the most highly anticipated games of 2001 but it was only for the PlayStation 2. The original MGS was released on PC and this second installment was given...
Red Faction: Guerrilla
Viva La Revolución! Bring freedom to your people in Red Faction Guerrilla by destroying everything in sight!
The Red Faction series from Volition isn't exactly critically acclaimed but the previous two entries received solid reviews to warrant a third entry, Guerrilla, released for Xbox 360 and PS3 in June, ...
DiRT 2 is a visually stunning, immensely satisfying racing game that anyone can just pick up and play.
Let me just say that I'm not a huge racing game fan as to get the best experience, you need a wheel but I picked up DiRT 2 on PC (the console versions were released in September but the PC version was...
"Everything I did, I did for love." Heavy Rain takes storytelling to new cinematic heights.
Games tell stories much like films. Unfortunately, most people often view the story as a throwaway, a flimsy excuse to keep the player engaged. However, there are some game developers who focus intens...
Tom Clancy's Splinter Cell: Conviction
It's great to see Sam Fisher back in Splinter Cell Conviction but the revamped stealth might put off some old fans.
Although we've heard no word on Hitman, Thief 4 was finally announced by Eidos. Metal Gear Solid is still going strong with Konami despite Old Snake's swan song. Now, Sam Fisher is back with the fifth...
Aliens vs. Predator
Aliens vs. Predator is fun for awhile and features some nice visuals but feels like a relic of the past.
Aliens vs. Predator. What could go wrong? Apparently, a lot. A remake of the original 1999 classic (which I've never played), there was a reasonable amount of hype leading up to its release but unfort...
Dragon Age: Origins - Awakening
The pacing is rushed and the characters are less memorable, but Dragon Age Awakening is one heck of an expansion pack!
Last year, BioWare released Dragon Age Origins, which went on to reach critical acclaim from the press and gamers. Now, after a string of somewhat middling DLC content, the first full expansion, Awake...
Mass Effect 2
Although too streamlined at times, Mass Effect 2 is an unforgettable, emotional experience.
BioWare fans have plenty to be happy about with three games coming in such a short time period. Dragon Age Origins hit stores last year to critical acclaim and its full expansion, Awakening is arrivin...
Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of the Patriots (Platinum)
Metal Gear Solid 4 Guns of the Patriots is the best game to have ever come out in the last ten years, on console or PC.
After being a PC Gamer for quite some time, I decided to branch out to console gaming as there are many games out there that deserve to be played but for some reason or other, don't make it to my plat...
Borderlands manages to satisfy that addictive urge to get better items in this visually vibrant first person shooter.
New IPs are often hard these days in the gaming world because there's always a high risk of the game flopping. Gearbox Software and publisher 2K Games must love Diablo, because their latest, Borderlan...
Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2
Call of Duty Modern Warfare 2 is packed with content but the PC version is still lacking and costs $10 more.
Call of Duty 4 Modern Warfare was one of the best PC games of 2007 with its intense single player and competitive multiplayer. After a detour back to WW2 in World at War, Infinity Ward is back with Mo...
Dragon Age: Origins (Collector's Edition)
Dragon Age Origins cements its status as the magnum opus game for developer BioWare.
It's been a long time coming for Dragon Age, announced in 2004 and finally being released five years later to great anticipation. Hype has been at an all-time high, though it doesn't surpass that of M...
Star Wars: The Force Unleashed - Ultimate Sith Edition
The Force is strong with this PC port of Star Wars The Force Unleashed Ultimate Sith Edition!
Star Wars The Force Unleashed was released for pretty much every console back in September, 2008 but PC users were left out in the cold because apparently Lucasarts said you would need a $4000 PC to r...
Resident Evil 5
Resident Evil 5 PC features stunning visuals, furious battles, and larger-than-life boss fights! One of Capcom's best!
Resident Evil 5 was originally released for Xbox 360 and PS3 on March 5, 2009 and although a PC version was not announced then, we all knew it was coming. It was a matter of when and whether it had mo...
Batman: Arkham Asylum
Batman Arkham Asylum isn't just the best comic book game, it's one of the best games this year, period!
Ah, comic book games. Sure, they let you play as your favorite character but they often end up disappointing due to fact that they're forced to be released with a film. X-Men Origins Wolverine proved ...
Mirror's Edge will cause endless amounts of frustration but will be rewarding to those who stick with it.
Gamers always complain about the lack of innovation in the industry but EA and DICE seek to change all that with Mirror's Edge, released for Xbox 360 and PS3 last November and the PC version this Janu...
Prince of Persia
Prince of Persia features an engrossing story and gorgeous visuals but the platforming is, at times, too simple.
This is one of the few remaining 2008 games I had left and what a great one it is! Prince of Persia has been a staple of Ubisoft with the Sands of Time trilogy (which I never played) but they decided ...
