    Makes the first look mediocre.

    God of War II

    Makes the first look mediocre.

    If you've played the first game, you know how good it was, but it also could've used some improvement too. First of all, there weren't enough boss battles. Fixed. There also weren't enough puzzles, and they weren't ha... Read Full Review

    A step in the right direction for action games.

    God of War (Greatest Hits)

    A step in the right direction for action games.

    Of all the sub-genres included in the action game category, hack 'n slash is probably my least favorite. You just hack and slash...then slash and hack...then you hack some more, and maybe slash if you feel like it. The... Read Full Review

    The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion

    The sheer variety and scope of things you can do in the game completely over-shadow the game's problems...

    The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion is big. Really really big. Maybe you already knew that, but it should probably be emphasized again. It may not be as big in sheer scale as some of its predecessors but it still has an am... Read Full Review

    Everything here is excellent.  That's not just impressive, that's downright rare.

    The Orange Box

    Everything here is excellent. That's not just impressive, that's downright rare.

    Alright, first thing I need to get out of the way is that I love Valve. Half-Life 2 is one of my favorite games ever, and Valve continue to impress with their new Steam updates that are making it seem more and more like... Read Full Review

    Absolutely amazing for as long as it lasts.

    Gears of War

    Absolutely amazing for as long as it lasts.

    Every system needs its killer app and if there's one game that absolutely defines the term it's Gears. Gears of War came at the perfect time when both Sony and Nintendo were launching their systems, and Microsoft needed... Read Full Review

    CoD4 doesn't sound too impressive when you're not holding the controller, but it's one of the most fun shooters ever.

    Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare

    CoD4 doesn't sound too impressive when you're not holding the controller, but it's one of the most fun shooters ever.

    I'll admit that when Call of Duty 4 was announced I wasn't as excited as everyone else. Sure, I was looking forward to it since any potentially great game has me interested from the start, especially one from a studio w... Read Full Review

    The horrible decision to include boss battles aside, Guitar Hero III is still fun, and very challenging.

    Guitar Hero III: Legends of Rock

    The horrible decision to include boss battles aside, Guitar Hero III is still fun, and very challenging.

    People who have never played Guitar Hero often have a hard time "getting" what's "so great about" Guitar Hero. It's possible that maybe a developer who's never made Guitar Hero has the same problem. It was Neversoft's ... Read Full Review

    New Super Mario Bros.

    New Super Mario Bros. successfully blends classic gameplay from all of the previous Marios with a great, new platforming

    "New Super Mario Bros." is quite a name for a game to have. I mean, think about it, it's a NEW SUPER MARIO BROS. I don't know anyone who wouldn't want to play this game, and I can't think of any type of person who woul... Read Full Review

    May not be worth $59.99 but it's sure as hell worth $29.99.

    Perfect Dark Zero

    May not be worth $59.99 but it's sure as hell worth $29.99.

    When Perfect Dark Zero first released it had a lot to live up to. Not only was it supposed to live up to Halo as the 360's launch killer app, but it also had to live up to the original Perfect Dark, a game praised as on... Read Full Review

    Mario Kart DS (DS Bundle)

    Like many of the recently released games for the Nintendo DS system, this game is nearly impossible to put down.

    Now that Mario Kart DS is here, I can finally say that I made a very good decision in buying my Nintendo DS. With games like Castlevania, Advance Wars, Super Mario 64, and this, there is just no denying that the DS has ... Read Full Review

    Halo 3 will mean more to fans than anybody else, but still provides plenty to enjoy for everyone, it's well worth $60

    Halo 3

    Halo 3 will mean more to fans than anybody else, but still provides plenty to enjoy for everyone, it's well worth $60

    I have never been a huge Halo fan. I never had an Xbox, but I did purchase the original Halo for PC, and I managed to play through all of Halo 2 in co op mode on my cousin's Xbox. Throughout Halo's legacy I have been m... Read Full Review

    Castlevania: Dawn of Sorrow

    Despite the lack of improvements on the series, Castlevania is quite simply an excellent game.

    If you were one of the thousands of poor guys to get a DS in November of 2004, you know how hard it was for us having to wait so long for a decent game. It took us 8 months to get Kirby and Meteos, 10 months to get Adva... Read Full Review

    Daxter

    Due to the game's uncanny matching of quality to the console versions, Daxter is the most impressive PSP game yet.

    If you are an experienced PSP owner and you're honest to yourself, you know that PSP games up to this point haven't really been so close graphics-wise to the PS2. As impressive as they are for handheld standards, if you... Read Full Review

    LEGO Star Wars II: The Original Trilogy

    Captures the spirit of both Star Wars and LEGO, but everything in the game feels just slightly clunky...

    Lego Star Wars II is a hard game to rate. Its concept is creative enough, and for the most part it's executed well. The game truly captures the spirit of both Star Wars and LEGO, both products that I was once obsessed ... Read Full Review

    Bioshock's focus on plot and immersion is unequaled by any other FPS in any generation.

    BioShock

    Bioshock's focus on plot and immersion is unequaled by any other FPS in any generation.

    When was the last time you ever played a game where you were absolutely trapped into its setting and plot. Probably the last time something like that has ever happened in a game for me was Half-Life 2, which was the onl... Read Full Review

    Advance Wars: Dual Strike

    Even if you're not too keen on strategy games or turn-based games in general, chances are you'll still enjoy this game.

    It took me a while to get this game. Unlike Metal Gear Acid, another strategy game that I avoided for about a month before I actually got it, I actually wanted Advance Wars. It seemed to be the first real decent game t... Read Full Review
