    Fantastic reboot. This is what Resident Evil 5 should have been.

    Tomb Raider (The Final Hours Edition)

    Fantastic reboot. This is what Resident Evil 5 should have been.

    Ok. I wasn't a big fan of the older Lara Croft efforts, but after seeing the videos for this reboot, I had to give it a try. I am impressed. I am, and always will be, a huge fan of Resident Evil 4. I thought that game... Read Full Review

    This game will destroy any positive feelings you had for the Resident Evil franchise.

    Resident Evil: Operation Raccoon City

    This game will destroy any positive feelings you had for the Resident Evil franchise.

    I am still trying to figure out what happened.... I put Operation Raccoon City into my Xbox, and instead ended up playing Call of Duty: Black Ops Plus Zombie. Multiplayer is just plain broken. You are extremely fragile,... Read Full Review

    Dark Souls

    Good if you enjoy being frustrated

    I really wanted to like Dark Souls, due to the good points. The responsive controls and well-rendered graphics (especially scenery) and thoroughly enjoyable. However, I am strongly motivated by plot and by the sense that... Read Full Review

    The true successor to Fallout 3 in terms of gameplay, and the true followup to Oblivion in terms of story.

    The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim

    The true successor to Fallout 3 in terms of gameplay, and the true followup to Oblivion in terms of story.

    I never give a game a 10, because no game is perfect. With that being said, the enjoyment of some games can cause you to overlook the little errors so that a game comes pretty darn close to hitting a 10. Skyrim is such a... Read Full Review

    Compelling story that is over all too soon

    Batman: Arkham City

    Compelling story that is over all too soon

    Don't get me wrong, Arkham City is great fun. However, the main story is a sub-ten-hour affair. This is fine in games with a strong multiplayer element, but that is absent in Arkham City. Sure there is an abundance of ch... Read Full Review

    Rage

    By trying to include RPG and driving elements into a shooter, RAGE becomes shallow in all three areas....

    By all accounts, RAGE should be fantastic. Made by Bethesda, cutting edge graphics, fantastic voice acting.... Unfortunately, it looks like Bethesda could not decide if they wanted to make a shooter, an RPG, or a driving... Read Full Review

    Two Worlds II

    Good second effort

    I, as most people, was less than impressed with Two Worlds. I saw some good ideas in it, however, that were never fleshed out. With that in mind, I decided to give the sequel a fair shake. TW2 fixes many of the issues... Read Full Review

    Best free shooter I have played

    Battlefield Heroes

    Best free shooter I have played

    I'm a sucker for free games. But, the problem with free games is that....you can tell they are free games. They often have low production values, or are not as in-depth or engaging as the big-budget-pay-to-play games. I ... Read Full Review

    X-Men Origins: Wolverine (Uncaged Edition)

    Fun gameplay hampered by some bugs and poor design

    All in all, this game is a fun rental when you feel like picking up a button mashing game. The story is actually quite interesting for those of you who watched the movie and were a little upset by the holes created in th... Read Full Review

    Fun for a while, but doesn't last 15 rounds.

    Fight Night 3 is fun, don't get me wrong, but it's kind of like going to Death Valley: great place to visit, but I wouldn't want to stay there. The graphics in the game are very nice, and the boxing controls are tight... Read Full Review

    Does everything better than WoW except draw a playerbase.

    I don't know why this game does not do better than World of Warcraft. Better graphics, more classes, more races, player housing, immersive cities. At face value EQ2 has WoW trumped at everything. However, WoW still is... Read Full Review

    Dark Messiah of Might and Magic: Elements

    Better than the horrible review it got, but nothing great.

    This game reminds me of 2 previous games I have played, Thief for the PC and King's Field for the Playstation. It has a similar, slow 1st person feel. The game world is fairly boring and bland, with set paths for you to ... Read Full Review

    Potential, wasted.

    I really wanted to like this game. I love sci-fi, and I love RPGs. There is very little out there in the MMO world that combines these two things. You are mostly stuck with MMos based in a magic and sword, medieval-type ... Read Full Review

    Under-appreciated gem. A mix of RPG and monster collection, packaged in a dark and convoluted storyline.
