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, Awakenings, many wondered ... Read Full Review2 of 4 users found the following review helpful
Dragon Age II
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 harshest DRM schemes and pr... Read Full Review1 of 2 users found the following review helpful
Assassin's Creed II
Mafia II (Digital Deluxe Edition)
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 critical acclaim. Aft... Read Full Review0 of 0 users found the following review helpful
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, video games. Tron Evol... Read Full Review1 of 1 users found the following review helpful
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 PC, Xbox 360 and PS3... Read Full Review7 of 7 users found the following review helpful
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 have been released t... Read Full Review0 of 0 users found the following review helpful
Grand Theft Auto: Episodes from Liberty City
Spider-Man: Shattered Dimensions
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 also fall short in m... Read Full Review1 of 1 users found the following review helpful
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 Ops, set during the... Read Full Review1 of 1 users found the following review helpful
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 reboot and the sequel, Qu... Read Full Review1 of 1 users found the following review helpful
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 one of the best Star W... Read Full Review1 of 1 users found the following review helpful
Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic II: The Sith Lords
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 for a black ops agenc... Read Full Review0 of 0 users found the following review helpful
Tom Clancy's Splinter Cell Double Agent
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 Oblivion continues th... Read Full Review0 of 0 users found the following review helpful
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 confusing cause it th... Read Full Review4 of 4 users found the following review helpful
Tom Clancy's Splinter Cell: Chaos Theory
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 where many FPS' fail:... Read Full Review4 of 5 users found the following review helpful
S.T.A.L.K.E.R.: Shadow of Chernobyl
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 story. The major gri... Read Full Review0 of 0 users found the following review helpful
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 Sheogorath, the Daedric Princ... Read Full Review0 of 0 users found the following review helpful
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 largely the same as ... Read Full Review0 of 2 users found the following review helpful
The Elder Scrolls III: Morrowind (Collector's Edition)
Fallout: New Vegas (Collector's Edition)
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 Vegas was developed by ... Read Full Review2 of 5 users found the following review helpful
Star Wars: The Force Unleashed II
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 ends up being a fun bu... Read Full Review2 of 6 users found the following review helpful
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 less than favorable ... Read Full Review2 of 3 users found the following review helpful
Kane & Lynch 2: Dog Days
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 same response and to ... Read Full Review3 of 3 users found the following review helpful
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 influenced by the works of... Read Full Review0 of 0 users found the following review helpful
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 manufactured Michael Bay m... Read Full Review3 of 3 users found the following review helpful
