Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2

- Xbox 360

It would be an understatement to say that Modern Warfare 2 (MW2) was one of the most anticipated games in recent memory. With Call of Duty 4 (COD4) being one of the most critically acclaimed games of this console generation and with COD4 being a permanent fixture as one of the top Xbox Live games since it came out, the hype train was in high gear leading up to MW2’s release. Unfortunately thi...

Ratchet & Clank Future: A Crack in Time

- PS3

I am not going to lie; I am a Ratchet and Clank fanboy. This is especially surprising considering series that lack innovation tend to get pretty stale for me after a sequel or two. However, inexplicably, I never get tired of the Ratchet and Clank formula even though every game plays almost identically to the one that preceded it. Ratchet and Clank Future: A Crack in Time is probably my favor...

Assassin Creed 2

- PS3

I enjoyed Assassin’s Creed but like many of you I found the game incredibly repetitive. I found that if I only played the game for no more than 2 hours at a time that I could avoid the repetitive feelings, but clearly that is not how any game should be designed to work. Thankfully Ubisoft (as all great developers do) went ahead and listened to their fan feedback and the result is a much bette...

Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of the Patriots

- PS3

Not since Halo 3 have I seen so much hype surrounding one game. For anyone interested in video games Metal Gear Solid 4 (MGS4) was a unavoidable part of your daily routine. I won't lie, I bought into the hype as well and was right there picking it up the first day it released. During my time with Metal Gear Solid I developed mixed emotions about it before coming to my conclusion. If you...

Grand Theft Auto IV

- Xbox 360

I think most of us out there took at least some interest in Grand Theft Auto 4. If you were one of the few who weren't interested in checking it out, you were probably at least curious as to what direction the series was going to take. Grand Theft Auto 4 (GTA4) has come and gone and somehow I can’t help feeling a little empty. Now don't get me wrong, it's a great game and in many ways it's b...

Haze

- PS3

Haze is the perfect example of why hype is a bad thing. Now I have heard a lot of people say that Haze wasn't very hyped, that it wasn't supposed to be a AAA title. Well I, like you, am a member of this community and I know that Haze was being touted as a premier title for the PS3. Ultimately the hype is what has caused Haze to fall flat on its face and become the huge disappointment that it...

Blue Dragon

- Xbox 360

I have always been a Japanese role playing game (JRPG) fan. Ever since the first time I got my hands on a Final Fantasy game I have been completely hooked. I don't know if it's the story, the strategy, the side missions or a little bit of everything, but I am always on the look out for the next great JRPG. When I did some research on Blue Dragon, and realized that the father of Final Fantasy...

Mario Kart Wii

- Wii

You really have to hand it to Nintendo. They somehow manage to keep on remaking the same game over and over again for each console generation and still find a way to make it a best seller each time. However this time around there are some very interesting new features with the introduction of the Wii Wheel and online play. These two features easily make this one of the better Mario Kart titl...

Tom Clancy's Splinter Cell Double Agent

- Xbox 360

Before my very first Splinter Cell game I had never really been a big fan of stealth games. Maybe it's because I can't blow everything up or maybe it's because I am impatient (I am leaning towards impatient). I don't know how Ubisoft did it, but somewhere along the line sneaking from enemy to enemy and choking them out before they knew what happened became as fun as firing rockets and throwin...

Metroid Prime 3: Corruption

- Wii

I can honestly say that Metriod is one of my all time favorite franchises. It is one of those games that was able to break free from its classic two dimensional roots and become equally as great in our current three dimensional world. Ever since I have picked up a Wii (despite its enormous success), I have always been skeptical of using the controller to play games that weren't designed to be...

Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas

- Xbox

With Grand Theft Auto (GTA): Vice City improving the GTA universe in every aspect, Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas had an even taller order to fill than Vice City did. Once again the team over at Rockstar did not disappoint. Although San Andreas was my least favorite of all the GTA games, it still stands the test of time and is a classic no matter what console generation you currently dabble in...

Grand Theft Auto: Vice City

- PS2

One of the hardest things to do in the video game industry is make a sequel to a legendary game. Creating a game that would be a worthy sequel to Grand Theft Auto (GTA) 3 would be no small task. However, true to form, Rockstar does not disappoint. Grand Theft Auto: Vice City stays loyal to what GTA 3 did so well and at the same time introduced an abundance of new content. I would not have t...

Grand Theft Auto III

- PS2

You always here people say they remember this or that; whether it was their first kiss or the first time they felt a sense of accomplishment. Well I remember the first time my eyes viewed Grand Theft Auto 3. I was sitting in my dorm in the year 2000 when my friend walked in and said "you have to come see this". I spent the next 30 minutes watching him walk around Liberty City bludg...

TimeShift

- Xbox 360

Not to beat a dead horse, but if you are a regular reader of my reviews you know how I feel about demos. A demo can be a developer’s best friend, but in the case of Time Shift it can also be your worst enemy. I was originally very interested in Time Shift. I closely followed the games development right up until the demo released on Xbox Live, but this is where the proverbial wheels fell off...

Earth Defense Force 2017

- Xbox 360

Now I won't take it personally if no one actually approves this review. To be honest I didn't even finish the game. Actually I didn't even get half way through it. I have always felt that Superman on the Nintendo 64 was the worst game I had ever played, but at least that game had Superman. Unfortunately with the red caped "Man of Steel" no where to be found, Earth Defense Force 20...

Viking: Battle for Asgard

- Xbox 360

I didn't expect much from Viking and I am happy to say I wasn't disappointed. I have said it before and allow me to reiterate that I will try most games where you can dismember people. Unfortunately for Viking: Battle for Asgard all the decapitated heads in the world can't help this game. Viking: Battle for Asgard follows Skarin; a mute Viking who sets out on a quest to free his land fro...

The Darkness

- Xbox 360

I found The Darkness to be an interesting premise. I had never read The Darkness comics; and to be completely honest I had never even heard of it before I found out that it was the basis for the game. Being the type of person who likes to try new things I decided that the premise was interesting enough to give it a try. The Darkness follows the main protagonist Jackie as he seeks out rev...

Dark Sector

- Xbox 360

Dark Sector was one of those games I wasn't sure about. It seemed like a cool idea and premise but more often than not I have seen games like this fall completely on their face. However my curiosity got the better of me so I decided to pick it up and give it a try. Dark Sector follows some kind of special operative named Hayden. Hayden is dropped off at a Soviet military facility in ord...

Overlord

- Xbox 360

Sometimes you find games that you haven't really heard much about. They don't receive very much hype so when you see it sitting on the shelf you pick it up purely out of curiosity and flip it over to check out the back. Since this occurrence happened for me at a Blockbuster I thought "what the hell" and decided to give Overlord a try. I must say that 5 days later when I took it bac...

Resident Evil 4

- GameCube

I have been playing games for a very long time. I have played games from just about every genre and from just about every developer. Every great once in awhile I come across a game that truly earns the title of an instant classic; Resident Evil 4 is one of those rare instant classics. If you are a fan of the Resident Evil series you already know that although each game stands independent...
