    Gothic 2 is an example of what can truly be done with enough dedication and attention to detail.

    Gothic II

    Gothic 2 is an example of what can truly be done with enough dedication and attention to detail.

    Here is a quick history lesson for everyone who is new to the series: Back in 2001, a German company called Piranha Bytes released the first title in the series adequately named "Gothic". While not a perfect game, Gothic... Read Full Review

    A good game, but not a proper sequel to one of the greatest  RPG's. *Spoilers included*

    Fallout 3

    A good game, but not a proper sequel to one of the greatest RPG's. *Spoilers included*

    While fallout 3 isn't a bad game, it will never have the appeal of previous titles. Some people are going to say, "How can you call Fallout 3 obsolete in comparison to its prequels?" By the way, if you are a retro ga... Read Full Review

    Survival horror at its finest.

    Silent Hill 2: Director's Cut

    Survival horror at its finest.

    Silent Hill was always the iconic depiction of Japanese horror and the unique and brilliant way they convey it to the audience. While western horror mainly consists of running around with a chainsaw and slicing hordes of... Read Full Review

    This is, without hyperboly, the worst game ever made.

    The Graveyard

    This is, without hyperboly, the worst game ever made.

    Wow.... I'm utterly speechless. Never in my wildest dreams have I witnessed such horror. To think that comparing a game to Big Rigs racing will end up as an insult to Big Rigs is something I used to joke about, a very l... Read Full Review

    Metro 2033

    A seemingly uninteresting concept that proved to be quite entertaining, though not without it's problems.

    To tell the truth, I was quite surprised that Metro 2033 has managed to keep my interest past the first few hours. The so called "concept" of making a game about a post apocalyptic world drenched with demons sounded very... Read Full Review

    Subpar gameplay holds back The Walking Dead from being truly special.

    The Walking Dead: A Telltale Games Series

    Subpar gameplay holds back The Walking Dead from being truly special.

    The Walking Dead represented a rather difficult moral dilemma for me. On one hand the game is an astonishing piece of storytelling and atmosphere, but on the other, a pretty bland and unchallenging adventure game. Th... Read Full Review

    Crysis 2

    Poor design decisions bring this game down. Consolized. Stay away if you're a PC gamer.

    First of all I'd like to mention that I never played Crysis1. All I knew coming into this game was that there is some guy who's wearing a special suit, and that the game takes place in New York. Oddly enough, thats m... Read Full Review

    In some ways better, In some ways worse, but overall the experience is pretty much the same.

    Not that it's a bad thing. ME2 manages to stay an enjoyable action game despite having eliminated most of it's already minor RPG elements in favor of more action sequences. And since it's the legitimate successor to M... Read Full Review

    Halo: Combat Evolved

    While not a bad game, Halo is definitely not the angelic deity it's so desperately trying to be.

    It's funny how the universe throws you a roundhouse kick to the jaw whenever you start feeling comfortable about something, and the same thing can be applied to the gaming industry. As far to my knowledge, Halo was basic... Read Full Review

    A sci-fi horror game that does not deliver on the whole horror aspect.

    Dead Space

    A sci-fi horror game that does not deliver on the whole horror aspect.

    At least for me it doesn't. But I guess if you watched Event Horizon, even the supposedly horrific scenes turn into a laugh riot, because Dead Space rips that movie off about as much as it does limbs. Not a wise decis... Read Full Review
