Ninja Gaiden 2 Sigma

- Xbox 360

The original Ninja Gaiden was my favorite game on the original Xbox. Even by todays standards the graphics still hold up very well. That was only an added bonus though. The hardcore difficulty and deep fighting system have always been the area where the series really shined. In this aspect the sequel does not disappoint. Ninja Gaiden has never really been renowned for its great story and t...

Omega Five

- Xbox 360

Omega Five is a good example of a game that symbolizes a dying genre. The horizontal scrolling shooter or ‘shmup’ if you will. The closest example of a game that it is comparable to is an arcade/Genesis classic Forgotten Worlds. I personally thought it was a great game, but then again I am a big enthusiast of retro games. In Omega Five, you play as one of two (in the beginning) arbitrarily...

Gears of War

- Xbox 360

Gears of War was the premier release for the Xbox 360 in 2006. Microsoft had to find another big hitting game that did not bear the Halo name. Indeed, Microsoft did seem to find a truly heavy hitter that would tide the gaming public over while the next iteration of Halo was way off in the distant future. I am happy to report that Gears of War is everything that Microsoft could have hoped for an...

Metroid Prime 3: Corruption

- Wii

I always had my doubts about the Metroid Prime series since it’s inception. Often times the transition from 2D to a 3D environment doesn’t bode over too well. I am glad to report that Metroid Prime 3 continues in Nintendo’s trend of quality ever since the first episode on Gamecube. Metroid Prime 3 Corruption had a lot to live up to. Not only did it have to wrap up the series 3D evolution....

Halo 3

- Xbox 360

Bungie has insisted ever since Halo 3’s inception that this game was finally going to be everything that they wanted a Halo game to be. No more rushed to market excuses as to why corners were cut. Halo 3 was to be an homage to fans of the series and surpass Halo 2 in every aspect. From graphics, online multiplayer, and map editing tools Halo 3 was supposed to be the ultimate Halo experience. Bu...

Kingdom Under Fire: Circle of Doom

- Xbox 360

The Kingdom Under Fire series has been a bit hit and miss. The old Kingdom under fire games took the typical hack-and-slash and added an RTS element to the mix. It had great art direction and in dephth, strategy and gameplay elements. Bluside did away with the RTS aspects for this newest iteration of the series. Cicle of Doom still retains the great visual design of the series but is mor...

Super Mario Galaxy

- Wii

The Super Mario games have always been about one thing, pure fun factor. I am glad to report that Miyamoto has once again waved his magic wand and has brought innovation and fun to the platform gaming. Mario has always been a supplier of great video game moments and Super Mario Galaxy is no different. The story of Super Mario Galaxy begins with Mario as he runs along at full speed to a ce...

Contra 4

- Nintendo DS

I can remember the old days when the arcade industry was booming. And fastpaced arcade syle games were the maintstream. Sadly these types of games are all but dying out. Konami has decided to resurrect one of their old franchises with Contra 4 on DS. Finally after over a decade there is a "true" sequel to Contra 3: The Alien Wars. The visuals in Contra 4 really do bring back the...

Lost Odyssey

- Xbox 360

Lost Odyssey is Sakaguchi’s second title for the Xbox 360. RPG enthusiasts yearning for a more mature title than Blue Dragon may just be in for a treat. The main character is Kaim, an immortal mercenary who doesn't remember much of his thousand-year life. At first he seems like a typical video-game tough guy, but as he regains his memories he evolves into a more sympathetic, tragic charact...
