    Disaster: Day of Crisis

    Surprisingly fun and makes great use of the motion controls, plus a hilariously bad story that's actually good.

    There ain't a lot of games, that revolve around natural disasters on the market, the only games that even dared to do so were Disaster Report (or SOS: The Final Escape in Europe) and Raw Digger, both released for the PS2... Read Full Review

    Well that was fast. It took 2 years to create Assassins Creed 2 and now we're already out with a "sequel". I put that in quotation, because it looked to be more of the same, so essentially, an expansion pack, that the in... Read Full Review
