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...

Frontlines: Fuel of War

- Xbox 360

Frontlines: Fuel of War is one of the most addicting games that I have played in some time. The last several nights of my life have been spent playing "just one more round" of this killer Kaos/THQ title. First, the bad stuff though. The matchmaking has a few issues, that prevent you from joining the Official Multiplayer servers, which by the way, can accomodate up to 50 players...

Lord Vader

Mass Effect

- Xbox 360

I submit this review, being someone who has actually spent some time with Mass Effect. I have beaten the game on Insanity, played through the game four times and I have all achievements except the Ally achievements, which I think are perhaps a little glitched. I only mention all this right off the bat because most bad internet reviews and user reviews of this game have come from people who fran...

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...

Uncharted: Drake's Fortune

- PS3

One thing I love about Uncharted: Drake's Fortune is despite the fact that it is this "grand adventure" you never see anything in the game that you really consider out of the realm of possibility. With exception to the cliff jumping I never found my self thinking "oh come on". Naughty Dog provided a great story that never makes you feel like it couldn't actually have happe...

Dynasty Warriors 6

- PS3

It's interesting to see such a disparity between gamers who enjoy this genre to begin with and the opinions of those who don't share the same appreciation for such games (Meta vs gamers). I don't think critics (meta) are a good measure of what games are good and fail to give ratings based on how the fan base will receive their games. I think this needs to change because it is misleading to the...

Guitar Hero III: Legends of Rock

- PS3

If you haven't given into the music game genre yet and played Guitar Hero, then skip the exercise in franchise milking and go buy Rock Band. If, however, you are a Guitar Hero enthusiast then please, pull out the leather pants and read on. The Guitar Hero fan base is practically insatiable, and I more than love the addition to the party game genre. There really is something magical about a g...

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....

Viva Pinata

- Xbox 360

Even with its sights set on a younger generation there is no denying that Viva Pinata has some sort of Harry Potter spell over older folks, too. An engaging sim with a good dose of Animal Crossing, it is hard to resist the candy filled contents of Viva Pinata. The game's objective is a bit elusive, though if you are my nephew it's to whack "bad guys" (sour pinatas) with the sho...

Kane & Lynch: Dead Men

- Xbox 360

Gritty, cold, harsh, bad, hard men doing bad things to each other and anyone unfortunate enough to get in their way! What a load of overblown nonsense! This game was portrayed before release as a game with a wonderful deep story line, something that would inject progress into a tired genre. Who cares if you are doing the same old shooter if the story line is involving. Movies have been doi...

God of War: Chains of Olympus

- PSP

To answer that question, yes it does. From the makers of Daxter, ReadyAtDawn Studios bring you God of War: Chains of Olympus. These guys know how to make a badass game on the PSP, no joke. God of War: Chains of Olympus takes you on a wild ride from Attica, to the Underworld itself. You play of course as Kratos our Spartan of love who's always around when you need him (not really but you ge...

Mass Effect

- Xbox 360

Mass Effect is well known for its story, but that is really all it is known well for. From touchy combat, pointless side quests, unorganized equipment, short main story, much touted dialog tree that changes nothing and a massive galaxy you cannot fully explore. Bioware has given us an amazing story which will make many of us who’ve played this game a heavy want for a speedy sequel. You s...

Resistance: Fall of Man

- PS3

Okay at the risk of getting assaulted by PS3 fans I will preface the rest of this review by telling you now that I was not very impressed by Resistance Fall of Man. If you are a Resistance fanboy I would suggest that you stop reading now so that I might spare your feelings. Resistance Fall of Man is the story of Nathan Hale and the alternate reality that Insomniac presents us. Basically...

Uncharted: Drake's Fortune

- PS3

If you are like me and are sick of the slew of short (12 hrs or under) games coming out on consoles, then just remember that uncharted is no different in this department. It can be beaten rather quickly, so if you have not played it you may be better off hiring this bad boy. That said, what you get is quality over quantity. I'm not going to repeat what all the official and respected (some...

Madden NFL 08

- PS3

Background: Madden NFL is one of the industry’s longest running franchises, first released in 1989. There are plenty of gamers in the U.S of A who describe their hobby as “Madden” , not “videogames”, because they simply don’t play anything else. These people along with a load of others are the gamers who felt disappointed my EA’s 07 next gen effort of madden, and looking for the “real” next g...

Dead Rising

- Xbox 360

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’. These files are found by completing tasks throughout the game and unveil t...

Burnout Paradise

- Xbox 360

It honestly never gets old; watching your car fly apart as you are traveling faster than any human ever should on a public road. As much as I enjoyed watching cars almost explode in previous Burnout games nothing compares to watching the realistic crashes in Criterion's newest Burnout title. Very rarely can an established game reinvent itself and improve the overall formula; Capcom did it wit...

Pro Evolution Soccer 2008

- PS3

Welcome to the definitive Pro Evolution Soccer 2008 review. That’s right, you can now officially ignore every other PES08 review. Well, perhaps I’m getting a bit ahead of myself here. The reason for this, is not that my review is simply of superior quality to all the others. Indeed, most reviews were many months ago, so in that regards I’ve missed the boat. But what time has granted me though i...
