    You don't want Isaac Clarke's personal life

    Dead Space 2

    Rated on March 20, 2011 by wats66

    You don't want Isaac Clarke's personal life

    POSSIBLE SPOILER ALERTS I loved the first Dead Space. It set the standard for how third-person shooters should look and feel. It was a masterpiece of game design. Isaac Clarke is one of the most...

    GRID

    The problem with GRID is that there are other cars on the track. No joke. The courses and roadways for GRID were not designed for multiple vehicles in a 2D environment. They're off by a few...

    Exellent game, great depth of content, a worthy contender for game of the year

    ME2 is, as expected, a great game. There's very little not to like. Graphics are great, audio is great, content/story is great, depth and scope are both fantastic. Gameplay (mainly the control whee...

    Yet another linear walk-through, complete with tedious button mashing and loss of interest real quick

    Dante's Inferno: Shinkyoku Jigoku-Hen

    Rated on February 17, 2011 by wats66

    Yet another linear walk-through, complete with tedious button mashing and loss of interest real quick

    Let's cut to the chase: Stop making games like this. You build a beautiful game with great content, then ruin it with a linear walkthrough format. On top of that, the greatest skill you can master ...

    NHL 11

    Good fun, great physics, lots of depth, just a few tweaks away from sports game perfection

    If you appreciate hockey, this game is flat out fun and obviously is not to be missed. Even if you don't like hockey , this game is still flat out fun. I hold all hockey games to the gold standa...

    Not great, pretty good overall.  Could be better.

    Dragon Age: Origins

    Rated on December 25, 2010 by wats66

    Not great, pretty good overall. Could be better.

    This game is good fun for the most part, especially if you like the RPG genre. It's well designed and glitch free, and performs well. It carries you through the storyline(s) at a good pace, with ple...

    A fun, well produced, fairly easy twist on the RDR platform

    Red Dead Redemption: Undead Nightmare Pack

    Rated on December 11, 2010 by wats66

    A fun, well produced, fairly easy twist on the RDR platform

    A fun game to romp through at your own pace, RDR Nightmare is a well produced, well priced iteration of the fantastic RDR game that should be a contender for game of the year honors. Combat is easy...

    Gorgeous game (as usual), great historical references, but too much button mashing and non-intuitive combat issues

    Assassin's Creed: Brotherhood (PS3 Slim Bundle)

    Rated on November 23, 2010 by wats66

    Gorgeous game (as usual), great historical references, but too much button mashing and non-intuitive combat issues

    So much has already been said, and a lot of the positives about ACB are spot on -- it's a beautiful game, like its predecessor, and it's a great learning tool and historical reference. Those parts of...

    Fallout: New Vegas

    Rated on October 20, 2010 by wats66

    Bethesda, you are killing me!

    Why oh why does Bethesda torture us like this? Is it part of their strategy? A peculiar, offhand, bizarre, illogical means of establishing a skewed imprimatur on the minds of top-level gamers? I do...

    Red Dead Redemption

    Perfect in many ways, Redemption is a great game with a few development issues

    Let's begin by stating the obvious: this is a great video game, one of the top three or four games unveiled in the past year. Easily the best western genre game ever released, RDRedemption is visuall...

    Fallout 3

    I would love to give this version the 9.5 it deserves, but the tech glitches just ruin the playability

    What can you say -- great game, great depth, massive, immersive, detailed, well written, brilliant, fun, instantly addicting. All the great things about RPG titles apply to Fallout 3. However, the P...

    The deepest, richest, most addictive role playing title in a long time

    The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion

    Rated on March 21, 2010 by wats66

    The deepest, richest, most addictive role playing title in a long time

    If you have a full time job that requires you to be up at 7 Monday through Friday, think twice about getting this game. I consider myself a veteran gamer going back to the days of the Atari and the A...

    BioShock

    Rated on February 27, 2008 by wats66

    the bioshock world is the greatest environment ever created in gaming history.

    the world of bioshock, in all its post-deco, quasi-deluvian glory, is a work of art. it is a joy to navigate the various levels and meander through the odd wonder of an undersea city, replete wtih the...
