    Dead Space 2

    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 troubled and unstab... Read Full Review

    GRID

    Great concept, but like many other racers, GRID is best served to players who enjoy repeating...and repeating...etc...

    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 degrees at virtuall... Read Full Review

    Mass Effect 2

    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 wheels and action d-pad ... Read Full Review

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

    Dante's Inferno: Shinkyoku Jigoku-Hen

    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 is button mashing. ... Read Full Review

    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 standard of SEGA NHL (from... Read Full Review

    Not great, pretty good overall.  Could be better.

    Dragon Age: Origins

    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 plenty of side quests (... Read Full Review

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

    Red Dead Redemption: Undead Nightmare Pack

    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 in this game, too e... Read Full Review

    Gorgeous game (as usual), great historical references, but too much button mashing and non-intuitive combat issues

    Assassin's Creed: Brotherhood (PS3 Slim Bundle)

    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 the game are fantas... Read Full Review

    Fallout: New Vegas

    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 don't get it. I reall... Read Full Review
