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...

okami

- PS2

With Okami due out on the Wii this year and the PS3's backwards compatibility going the way of the dodo a review of Okami for the PS2 just seems right. For Zelda lovers looking to capture a Link adventure experience on the Playstation, Okami is like a Ho-Ho: it will leave you happy and sate the craving all without that pesky, full feeling. You play as a godly canine Amaterasu with a tiny bug...

Army of Two

- PS3

After hearing all the great reviews for this game, I thought I would give EA another chance. They have let me down in the past with the annual updates of sports games, the inconsistency with their racing games and the sloppy feel of their console shooters. But this? This looks like it has turned the corner. It looks promising. I bought the game and started playing. The first 2 hours were a...

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....

Uncharted: Drake's Fortune

- PS3

Gamers generally associate the term 'platformer' with a medieval prince who’s out to rescue a beautiful princess from the clutches of an evil vizier... or perhaps a scantily dressed archaeologist with a British accent who could give good old Indiana Jones a run for his money. But now we have yet another candidate to add to this list, and he goes by the name of Nathan Drake. Drake isn’t a s...

Mass Effect: Bring Down the Sky

- Xbox 360

The new DLC Bring for Mass Effect called "Bring down the sky" is nothing exciting. Bring Down the Sky includes a new uncharted world that introduces the notorious and feared alien race of the Batarians. A Batarian extremist group has hijacked a mobile asteroid station in the Asgard system, setting it on a collision course with the nearby colony world of Terra Nova. Only Commander Shep...

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...

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...

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...

Commanders: Attack of the Genos

- Xbox 360

The RTS(real time strategy) genre has made it to Live Arcade with the release of Commanders: Attack of the Genos. For 800 points (roughly $10) you can download the full version. The question that I will try to answer in this review, is whether or not Commanders is worth the dough. The game is set in a 1950's alternate past. The human genome has been cracked, and humans have created a race...

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...

MLB 08: The Show

- PS3

First off, once you start MLB 08 The Show (after the developer plugs) you will see a single little recap of a single player achievement from last year. This is a cool addition that took me by surprise. Once you get into the title screen, you will be bomb barded by options and things to look at. There is a ton and I mean a TON! of things to do in this game. One thing you cannot do is the homerun...

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...

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...

Army of Two

- PS3

Army of two is a third-person shooter from Electonic Arts that focuses on co-operative gameplay. It works best as a co-op campaign with a friend but can be enjoyed single player or online. The game tells the story of two rough-necks that trade government paychecks for the big bucks of a Private Military Company, SSC. They take on countless enemies as they travel to destinations ranging fro...

God of War: Chains of Olympus

- PSP

Kratos, the Ghost of Sparta, returns in a prequel to the legendary God Of War games on consoles. Now right from the start I am going to address the one main problem this title was faced with. The game is actually short-lived, some reports coming in that the game can be finished in just under 4 hours. This of course doesn't mean you should not play it.. In fact I think everyone should pick this...

The Club

- PS3

Gameplay: Is a very good adaptation of Shoot'emUp (Run'n Shoot) style, it has a nice well-though combo system that will keep the player (you) running for an entire stage (which are fairly long), it consist on a time-bar similar to DMC's combo-bar, but in this game if you miss a combo it doesn't instantly break but it starts to drain til it reaches zer0, leaving the player chance enough to recov...

MLB 08: The Show

- PS3

Given that PS3 is the only system that gives you a choice in baseball games this year. I am going to help you choose MLB 2K8 or MLB 08 THE SHOW. I am a big fan of baseball, you may call me obsessed. I have recently played both MLB 2K8 as well as MLB 08 The Show. If you have played MLB 07 The Show, then you are pretty much aware of what you are going to get in terms of gameplay. Th...

MLB 08: The Show

- PS3

Ok let me start off with saying I haven't got online with this game yet and I have around 15 hours played with friends. I have been of the mind that baseball games just don't work. The Show has shown me what a baseball game needs to be. It needs to have all the extras. It needs to show off the park and the ppl in it. It needs to set the scene because that’s what baseball is. It’s a pitch b...

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...
