Deemed “child’s play” by the developers of Haze back in May of ’07, another contender had risen from the ashes to become the next…well…first, Halo Killer. Some thought this immature of Free Radical, as developers ripping into games that are not their own can definitely be perceived as child’s play. "While Halo is brilliant, you're a teenager - the next-gen is about becoming mor...

2008 – Flop or Not? (Playstation 3) With 2008 already a quarter of the way finished, we still haven’t seen any big name titles, which were also quality titles. Although there is little information about some of them, and a couple might not even release this year, the following is a list of this writer’s opinion and analysis of the big games that could be huge. They will be rated as Flop, P...

5 Ways to Make Gears 2 the Best Shooter of All-time With a few upgrades here and there, and a bit of a touch up in the visual department and I’m sure Gears 2 would still be a great game. But today’s shooters have stepped their game up and now it’s time for Gears of War 2 to show that this series is on the greatest ever created. Here’s 5 ways Gears of War 2 can improve upon the original:...

Mass Effect: Bring Down the Sky

- Xbox 360

I’ve never reviewed an expansion pack, but I will review without elements such as graphics and sound, assuming readers have read that in my original Mass Effect review. Bring Down the Sky is a whole new system with multiple planets for you to explore. It adds a new race to the game, the Batarians, and adds more to the overall story, but does not give any hints into a game’s sequel. It is s...

Army of Two

- Xbox 360

After a brief stint with the US military, Army of Two’s main characters, Salem and Rios, head for the private sector to make some extra dough. Playing with a friend or playing with the AI, Army of Two provides a unique cooperative experience. Giving ordinary people licenses to kill is an issue this game looks at. While the game has very little to do with the actual current conflict happening in...

Hitman: Blood Money

- Xbox 360

In Hitman: Blood Money you are Agent 47, nothing but a tool in a grand garage of plans. With nothing but your satellite map and Fiber wire, your goal for every unique mission is to assassinate one or more people while trying your best to not get noticed. In Hitman, there are no complicated environments or large open areas. It is quite a restricted game, and there is your occasional invisib...

Turning Point: Fall of Liberty

- Xbox 360

I could not bring myself to complete this game. I tried, oh I tried, but even with the negative reviews it’s been getting, I had faith. I do not like reviewing a game I have not finished, and I have criticized others for doing so before me, but I feel obligated to stress that the one interesting idea this game brought to the table, alternate history World War II, was an absolute failure. I have...

Rock Band

- Xbox 360

Not only did Rock Band one-up Guitar Hero when it comes to the guitar, it also features a drum set and a microphone as playable instruments. Together with an additional bass guitar, you and three of your friends can play all on the same screen or online. The lack of different multiplayer modes is greatly made up for by amazing singleplayer and cooperative play. There are 45 original songs and 1...

Guitar Hero III: Legends of Rock

- Xbox 360

5 fret buttons, 1 strum bar, and 1 whammy bar make up your guitar, your primary weapon in Guitar Hero III: Legends of Rock. The object is to hit the correct notes with your guitar as they scroll across the screen. The game features singleplayer and cooperative campaign, various splitscreen battle type modes, and online play. There are 42 songs to be played in the campaign, and many others via b...

Assassin's Creed

- Xbox 360

The major draw point for me was its story and accompanying historical references. Assassin’s Creed is set in 1191 in the Middle East during the Third Crusade. Viewed from the third-person, this stealth game features a story that is considerably accurate and definitely engaging. Your main goal is to assassinate nine different targets in three different cities within the Holy Land. This is done b...

Marble Blast Ultra

- Xbox 360

You control a marble and lead it through a series of obstacles to complete the level. Who knew something this simple could be so fun? The marble is controlled by the thumbsticks, the A button is jump, RB is for double jump, and RT is to activate powerups. The object of the game is to get your marble to finish line while trying to not fall off the edge of this 3D world, all within par time....

Stuck in Willamette Parkview Mall, you are Frank West, a freelance photojournalist. Armed with your camera and any everyday shopping item you can find, you must attempt to survive for 72 hours. The mall is infested with zombies and the only way to figure out the truth behind the outbreak is by finding ‘case files’.

Forza Motorsport 2

- Xbox 360

I’ve never been a real racing fan. I’ve certainly never been a racing simulator fan. Silly me for trying something new. With the exception of knowing how to drive one, I really don’t know much about cars, so I apologize in advance if any incorrect terms are used. Forza Motorsport was released for the original Xbox to critical acclaim and commercial success. It was one the first true race...

Spyglass Board Games for the Xbox Live Arcade gives you the ability to play four different games: Chess, Checkers, Mancala, and Reversi (Othello). SBG features a variety of different gametypes including online play and singleplayer. This arcade game follows your basic rules for the above games, as they shouldn’t sound too unfamiliar.

Resistance: Fall of Man

- PS3

If I said Resistance: Fall of Man didn’t remind me of Killzone, I would be a filthy liar. Both feature a basic storyline, a typical combat system, and predictable gameplay. Both have that grey, gritty style of play that’s been done so many times before, and both were hyped beyond belief. Great games in their own respect, but both miserably failed because of in-game mistakes and crushing blows b...

Lost: Via Domus

- Xbox 360

It’s made by Ubisoft; it’s based on a TV show, and its singleplayer only. A true recipe for disaster. Being a huge Lost fan, I wanted this game to be good. Mostly because of the above mentioned reasons, as soon as the game was announced I had an ill feeling. Your character, created specifically for the game, is a passenger on Oceanic 815 and crashes on to the island like everyone else...

Just Cause

- Xbox 360

This is the highest score I have ever given. I desperately wanted to give my first 90%+ review to Just Cause. It may seem hard to believe, but I actually do have somewhat of a scoring policy which I hold to as best I can, even for my favourite games. Just Cause sets you on the South American island of San Espirito, which has everything from beaches, to dense jungles, to massive cities and...

Conan

- Xbox 360

I usually pass hack-and-slash games off as typical Japanese animated, linear games, and historically, I have found these games to be quite dull and repetitive. Conan was different…sorta. It was a long weekend…Ace Combat was out, Project Gotham Racing 4 wasn’t there, and there weren’t even any copies of Turok left. Deflated, I stumbled upon Conan, and being a young man who reads game review...
