    BioShock

    Not saying anything new; this game is awesome...

    I'm going to keep this plain and simple...I loved this game. From start to finish, this is one that will keep you going. Never once did I think to myself "I wish I could just finish this and get it over with". Of course ... Read Full Review

    Like westerns? Like FPS's? Then answer the Call...

    When I first popped this disc in, I was thinking it was going to be just another game to plow through and I wouldn't really care. Half-way through, I became saddened to know that this was a title I could have taken my ti... Read Full Review

    Better than expected, but still not great.

    Stranglehold

    Better than expected, but still not great.

    I could really sum up this review with a few key words like "Max Payne", "Total Overdose ('Chili Con Carnage')" or "Dead To Rights". I think you know where I'm going with this. This game is so similar to those titles tha... Read Full Review

    BlackSite: Area 51

    Think twice before dropping $60 on this one...

    I remember popping in a disc from Official Xbox Magazine and discovering the playable demo for Blacksite. It was about 3 days after I got my Xbox 360 and I was still debating my purchase, Bioshock and Blue Dragon had not... Read Full Review

    An extremely good follow-up but not without flaws.

    Zelda no Densetsu: Mugen no Sunadokei

    An extremely good follow-up but not without flaws.

    First of all, I have to point out that this game was MUCH longer than I had anticipated. When I play a handheld game, I think about it being 6 - 12 hours of gameplay, but not in Zelda's case. Not only do you have a large... Read Full Review

    It could have been a bit better, but it could have be A LOT worse...(*spoiler-free*)

    I was worried about this title from the very beginning. I tried out Resident Evil: Deadly Silence, but it didn't have enough to set it apart from the original PS1 version. Touch the Dead managed to get my attention for a... Read Full Review

    A quick recipe...1 tbsp of Dragon Quest + a splash of Zelda  3 + a hint of Advance Wars = a damn fine game.

    Dragon Quest Heroes: Rocket Slime

    A quick recipe...1 tbsp of Dragon Quest + a splash of Zelda 3 + a hint of Advance Wars = a damn fine game.

    I bought this a second time just to give it another chance. I'm glad I did. This isn't the longest of games to ever be released, but all the different pieces it pulls together makes for a great mash-up of fun. And quite ... Read Full Review

    What the DS needs...more 2D, side-scrolling goodness.

    Byeol ui Kieby: Dauphin Ildang ui Seupgyeok

    What the DS needs...more 2D, side-scrolling goodness.

    I can't seem to figure out why just about 75% of all games developed these days have to be in 3D. Mario went 3D. Sonic went 3D. Even Castlevania went 3D. There's absolutely nothing wrong with a good 3D action/adventure t... Read Full Review

    I found it used for $5...I'm glad I didn't pay full price for it, but it was fun while it lasted.

    What's there to say? It's a handfull of touchscreen games designed to win a gal's attention. There aren't that many different tasks, but some of them get quite difficult. All I can say is that it was a clever title, but ... Read Full Review

    Garfield's Nightmare

    It's a budget title for kids...what do you expect?

    I love Garfield comics, but never thought I would actually buy any of the video games. But this title, for some odd reason, was able to snag my attention mostly because it wasn't another movie tie-in. Sometimes you just ... Read Full Review

    Uncharted: Drake's Fortune

    This is what next-gen gaming is all about!

    Uncharted was the reason I bought a PS3 in the first place. I loved the idea from the first preview. I was worried that there would be too Tomb Raider-style platforming, but there's just enough added to the formula to se... Read Full Review

    Great alternative to Mario Kart for PSP owners. (Part Mario Kart, part Ridge Racer)

    I was hesitant to pick up Cars when it first came out, because, lets face it, movie/cartoon-to-video game titles usualy come off as a cheap way to suck more money out of the license and end up just sucking as games. I ca... Read Full Review

    Probably one of the most original survival horror stories I've played since the original Resident Evil.

    Let's face it...most of your survival horror games tell the same story over and over. Evil creatures have you trapped and you only have a few items to help you survive and you must have item A to unlock door B and solve ... Read Full Review

    I can't agree with Gamespot's review on this one. I happen to think David Duchovny was a great choice for the main character. Of course the story did stray a bit from its origins and became a bit odd, but I managed to wo... Read Full Review

    Buggy, but seeing as it's the first solid console title for US audiences, not bad fan-service.

    Having been a fan of Doctor Who in the '70s and into the current series, it's always been bothersome that there hasn't been a solid video game for the home consoles in the US. Star Wars was only 6 films and look at the n... Read Full Review
