    Call of Duty: Ghosts

    Some new and interesting ideas, but there is an uncomfortable familiarity.

    Call of Duty 4 was the start of the series' most prominent identity, and while successive games have tried to build upon the formula, it has never really captured the magic it once had. As such, the series has consistent... Read Full Review

    Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance

    Metal Gear Rising falls face first into a few action game pitfalls, but the game remains undeniably fun.<br />

    Metal Gear Rising was announced several years ago, but it was eventually scrapped. However, the reigns were passed to Platinum Games, and Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance is finally here. Story------------------------... Read Full Review

    Dead Space 3

    Dead Space 3 succeeds as a 3rd person shooter, but butchers the horror that the series is known for.

    An excellent game that sticks to tried and true methods, but doesn't strive to make much progress with the formula.

    The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim

    An excellent game that sticks to tried and true methods, but doesn't strive to make much progress with the formula.

    It's apparently impossible for Bethesda to make a bad game, but it's hard to continue to praise them for it when they never push the envelope either. Story-----------------------------------------------------------... Read Full Review

    A refreshing, over the top action game that adds a surprisingly high level of detail.

    Max Payne 3

    A refreshing, over the top action game that adds a surprisingly high level of detail.

    Few games have really surprised me in recent memory. Max Payne 3; a game I was completely indifferent towards on its release, now has me singing praises just a couple of weeks later. It still has the problems many, if ... Read Full Review

    A solid design, but the punishing and occasionally frustrating difficulty make it a "love it or hate it" game.

    Dark Souls

    A solid design, but the punishing and occasionally frustrating difficulty make it a "love it or hate it" game.

    I wasn't sure what to think when I first saw Dark Souls. It looked fairly generic, there were no branching skills, and the lack of any real storytelling sounds like an abysmal experience on paper. The incredibly high r... Read Full Review

    Dead or Alive 4

  • Review Score:9
    A fantastic game that is often disregarded as sex appeal and nothing more.

    Dead or Alive 4 (Platinum Hits)

    A fantastic game that is often disregarded as sex appeal and nothing more.

    Dead or Alive 5 will not be coming any time soon, so I thought it would be appropriate to review the 4th now, because as old as it is, it is still the best fighter you can get. The Dead or Alive series has taken an u... Read Full Review

    While Alan Wake creates an impressive atmosphere, its short story and lackluster characters land it flat on its face.

    Alan Wake

    While Alan Wake creates an impressive atmosphere, its short story and lackluster characters land it flat on its face.

    Alan Wake had the unfortunate timing of being released on the same day as Red Dead Redemption, leading to a serious lack of attention. I purchased Alan Wake first, but sadly, traded it in two days later. Story---... Read Full Review

    Innovation is not the same as tried and true.

    Red Dead Redemption

    Innovation is not the same as tried and true.

    Reviewers love this game, yet what they praise it for has become so standard for the open world genre. It makes me wonder whether or not anyone can appreciate games that try to do things differently, or rather the fact ... Read Full Review
