    The Witcher 2: Assassins of Kings

  • Review Score:7.5
    Under-rated, particularly with all the required fixes in place.

    Rage

    Under-rated, particularly with all the required fixes in place.

    RAGE was a long time in development and full of bugs when it was finally released. I think that caused a lot of animosity when it finally launched. But a couple of years after it's release I purchased a digital downloa... Read Full Review

    Half-Life 2: Episode Two

    With this rollicking roller-coaster ride thru the country, Valve makes us forget all about missed deadlines.

    Does anyone do it better? Since the debut of Half Life more than ten years ago, Valve has consistently and successfully built on the award-winning franchise. With the possible exception of 2001's Blue Shift, every new ... Read Full Review

    As the "spiritual successor" to System Shock 2, it fails, but still a solid game in it's own right.

    BioShock

    As the "spiritual successor" to System Shock 2, it fails, but still a solid game in it's own right.

    This is a little different format from most of the reviews I've written. In the game forums, I have encountered a large number of players who absolutely love the game, and an equally large number who, like myself, felt ... Read Full Review

    F.E.A.R. Perseus Mandate

    Worst in series? Definitely.<br /> Totally unnecessary expansion? Undeniably.<br /> Still hella fun to play? ABSOLU

    Maybe it's just me, but I think the many critics of this release may have been a little harsh. I mean, sure, Perseus Mandate is riddled with some significant flaws, but I don't think it's as bad as many "professional" r... Read Full Review

    Half-Life 2: Episode One

    All the gaming goodness of Half Life 2…just not enough of it.

    Fans who loved HL2 will find a lot to be happy about with Episode One, as it picks up right where HL2 ended and is essentially a continuation of that game. The storyline is less ambiguous in E1, which was a common compl... Read Full Review

    Once more, into Vvardenfell!

    An epic addition to the Morrowind line. Only this time, the story is more about Norse mythology than Tolkien fantasy. The look of the mostly snow-covered exteriors is a great change from the environments of Morrowind a... Read Full Review

    The Elder Scrolls III: Morrowind

    If you've never played a role-playing game, and are searching for your first experience, look no further.

    Reviewing "The Elder Scrolls: Morrowind" is a daunting task, for the simple reason that the game has so much to offer, one could easily fill several pages and still fail to do it justice. So consider yourself warned. I... Read Full Review

    Players that have had their fill of killing zombies, aliens, Nazis and terrorists, and are looking for something different will find a wickedly unique experience in The Suffering. A frightening prison-island setting tha... Read Full Review

    Almost four years after it's initial release, still an extremely satisfying stealth experience.

    Having just played the game for the first time, I have to say that it was a pleasant...no, make that excellent...surprise. Being primarily a FPS action fan, I find the stealth sub-genre to be a great diversion when I ne... Read Full Review

    Call of Cthulhu: Dark Corners of the Earth

    The good is GREAT, but the bad truly sucks. In the end, a few simple changes could have made it more appealing.

    Most gamers will either love it, or hate it. GOOD STUFF... 1) REEELY creepy environment. 2) The inhabitants of Innsmouth freaked me out. 3) 'Insanity' aspect is a cool (if sometimes, frustrating) innovation. 4)... Read Full Review

    A Grand Theft Auto clone? Maybe, maybe not...but even if it is, what's wrong with THAT?

    Given the huge popularity of the GTA series, would it be such a huge crime if Illusion Softworks &quot;borrowed&quot; some concepts from those games? Personally, I don't think so. I love certain elements of the Grand T... Read Full Review

    Nothing extraordinarily good OR bad…just more “47 fun” for fans of the series.

    Although slightly over-hyped, the revolutionary visuals, game play and multi-player successfully “break the mold” for Re

    Any production that receives as much pre-release press as Company of Heroes did typically has a difficult time living up to all the hype. While there are certainly fans that consider it to be “the greatest RTS of all ti... Read Full Review
