    Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2

    Rated on December 02, 2009 by uyjr

    Over the years the Call of Duty series has set the bar for immersive,

    Modern Warfare 2 is by far the least traditional of the series, with the core package broken up into three main pillars of gameplay. Single-player fans have their main campaign, if you're down for mor...

    Company of Heroes: Tales of Valor

    Rated on June 25, 2009 by uyjr

    The stand-alone expansion pack is a strange beast.

    The shift is most evident in the game's three new multiplayer modes, all of which tend to emphasize cooperative action and a more narrow focus than the series has been known for. While it may initiall...

    Company of Heroes: Opposing Fronts

    That same fast-paced in your face style of play permeates Opposing Fronts and we're very glad to have it back.<br />

    Opposing Fronts marches two new factions off to war both online and off: the slow moving but heavy handed British and zippy and elastic Panzer Elite. Both offer up some distinct differences between th...

    It's not for the casual player who just wants to hop into the seat and start downing bogies.

    Crysis Warhead is the videogame equivalent of a summer action movie, and while it's more action-heavy than its highly acclaimed predecessor, it still retains its brains. Like Crysis, Warhead is a sand...
