    The Sims 3

    Once bitten by this time vampire you'll be lucky to have half the life your Sims are having.

    We'll skip trying to defend our masculinity and go right into what this game does. It's like all the others in the series, which means overly charming virtual doll house. We've sunk weeks and weeks into playing these ... Read Full Review

    Gangsters 2

    take our advice on gangsters 2: vendetta, fugetaboutit.

    this really shouldn't have been released as a sequel to gangsters: organized crime because it bares only some of the shortfall of the original as its resemblance. pretty tedious. additionally it's a pretty linear g... Read Full Review

    I came, I saw, I wasted way too much time trying to get all the insulas and villas to evolve to their third level.

    This game is good. Think that's the most fair and unbiased thing we can say about it. We like the game, it appeals to that OCD city building and planning department director inside us. We dig the Roman thing, really dig ... Read Full Review

    When it comes to everything from Premise to Puzzles, Portal takes the cake.

    We're a big fan of the unwilling test subject genre. Waking up in a room without knowing what's going on, very reminiscent of Saw , Cube, and some of the Twilight Zone episodes. Added in with the mysterious Aperture Sci... Read Full Review

    If you judge games solely on replay value, KOTOR is the proverbial "it."

    Pretty much all they said it would be.

    When people describe SW: Empire at War as an RTS meets Galactic Civilizations, that's about as accurate as it gets. They hyped this game as a Star Wars RTS, don't really know what more you can say other than that's exact... Read Full Review

    Overpowered protagonist rampages in bland city. Clunky controls, weak story, and two dozen special moves you won't need.

    Many of our criticisms of Assassin's Creed are applicable to Prototype. Graphics are great, weak story, targeting and controls problematic, and aside from the first few times you use special moves it all sort of becomes ... Read Full Review
