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...

Heavenly Sword

- PS3

You start the game and after one level you’re dead. Now I knew this game was meant to be short, but this is ridiculous. Relax, it’s all alright though, you go back in time, and play through the events that lead to your untimely demise. I’m not going to lie to you; this is a shot game, with no multiplayer and one which features limited environments. However the experience, while it lasts, is an...

BioShock

- Xbox 360

Bioshock is a fascinating game that creates a bizarre surreal atmosphere that draws you in even amongst a few flaws. The game is especially interesting because of the philosophical undertones presented throughout the game. Story: Andrew Ryan - a man who wants to get away from the typical confines of governments and institutions of the world during the early- mid 1900’s, creates an underw...

The Simpsons Game

- PS3

A Simpsons game, for the PS3, courtesy of EA. I’ll let you know now my expectations were not that high. Previous Simpsons games haven’t exactly been spectacular and EA have a less than perfect record developing for the PS3. Having been a fan of the Simpsons, through better and through worse, I was hoping all my reservations would be completely unfounded. To tell the truth, I’m still not sure I...

Mass Effect

- Xbox 360

To this point in my gaming life I have yet to be so enthralled with a game that I actually bother to try and do every single side mission (not even GTA). This is in a nut shell how great Mass Effect is, it does a great job of blending a great story (great voice overs, story, graphics, relevant side missions) and game play into one nearly perfect game. Despite the hiccups in the game play Mass...

The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion

- Xbox 360

Oblivion is a game to keep you up all night, and probably the next night, too. An engrossing RPG, this addition to the Elder Scrolls oeuvre offers you endless variables in a nearly endless environment. Take your time with the pre-game character composition, you'll be clocking a life-shattering number of hours with that thing. You'll choose everything from your race to your sign, each with thei...

Devil May Cry 4

- PS3

So I finished beating Devil May Cry 4 a few hours ago and i gotta say the game is awesome. The game play is just solid. You can upgrade your abilities and your sword techniques through out the game, and I'm gonna tell you right now, you really should upgrade. It would be very hard to pass the game without upgrading. I would say the length of the game has to be around 10 to 14 hours dependin...

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...

Dragon Quest Swords: The Masked Queen and the Tower of Mirrors

- Wii

Dragon Quest Swords is a Square Enix game that has a casual flair to the RPG realm. They still treat it like a Dragon Quest game however which is always nice what with a good story, enjoyable characters, fun games, and many things to buy. It starts off with a festival celebrating the defeat of great evil some 5 years ago. The great sword master is putting on a show and selects you to be...

Professor Layton and the Curious Village

- Nintendo DS

Level-5 is well known for their RPG’s but it is always good to break free from a genre and test out the waters. Lucky for us Level-5 is just a great developer no matter what the genre and this is another pat on the back for there list of great games made. Saying that lets hurry up with some of those RPG’s you are working on ;) Welcome to the town of Mystere. Where puzzle lovers are foun...

The Club

- PS3

When you first play the club you may wonder how do you mix a racing style game with a 3rd person shooter? Well it involves creating massive chains (or combos) of kills from a simple blast in the groin with a pump action shotgun to a Gate crasher kill (burst through a door and proceeding to annihilate everyone in their within a matter of seconds (more on this later). The story is that a sec...

Everyday Shooter

- PS3

Officially called Riff: Everyday Shooter, this has been recently released to the EU Playstation store after a very long delay, at least compared to the US store. Has the wait been worth it? Well that’s debatable. Justified? Another matter entirely. But one thing is for certain, Everyday Shooter is a very unique and a surprisingly good game. The game was designed by Jonathan Mak and came to be a...

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...

Viva Pinata

- Xbox 360

Forgive me if I missed the whole point of Rare’s 2006 title: Viva Piñata, but this game is officially given the toughNAME title of Most Overrated, Underrated Game Ever. Players are given a small garden with the goal being to attract piñatas. Piñatas are wild animal like creatures who look like actual piñata’s. They range from rodent piñata’s, to swimming piñat...

Perfect Dark Zero

- Xbox 360

Perfect Dark was a huge success on Nintendo’s N64 and a spiritual successor to the legendary Goldeneye. It was one of the greatest shooters of all time, and in 2005 Microsoft attempted a sequel, which would go down in dumpster infamy. Perfect Dark Zero for the Xbox 360 was released in 2005 simultaneously with the console’s launch. It was hailed as being better than the original and was exp...

Resistance: Fall of Man

- PS3

Resistance: Fall Of Man is a first person shooter from Insomniac Games. It chronicles an era that occurs in an alternate timeline where Earth is ravaged by a savage, devastating creature, The Chimera. The game looks like a WW2 shooter with fantastical Sci-Fi touches. It's most unique features are it's great gameplay and the clever selection of weapons. The game is has a Campaign singl...

Heavenly Sword

- PS3

Heavenly Sword was a highly anticipated game in 07. This was mainly due to the similarities to the popular franchise God of War. Many believed that this was the next-gen God of War-style game we had all been waiting for. Unfortunately it didn't manage to please most reviewers and was awarded fairly average review scores. But here is one gamer who thought it was excellent this is my review:...

Dynasty Warriors 6

- Xbox 360

I am from Germany. I can not speak English well. I translate my letter to the translation engine "Google": I think the "Dynasty Warriors" series is one of the interesting series. Although "KOEI" in the game for years no major changes and innovations made, it still makes for a lot of fans are still very fun. It is true that "KOEI" since "D...

Assassin's Creed

- PS3

Positives Fantastic visuals. Character models are really good, but the game shines with the environments and scenery. As you climb up to your first building or roof top, you see the sunshine cut through the palm trees and you glaze to catch more of the glimpse before you're greeted by this sunset or sunrise. It is a beautiful game, and warranted enough to be my first point. Brilliant...

Call of Duty: Modern Warfare

Call of Duty 4 Modern Warfare is a first person shooter developed by Infinity Ward for both the Playstation 3 and the Xbox 360. Call of Duty 4 takes in the player into the eyes of a British S.A.S soldier and a United States Marine. The single player missions are very well done and vary in different situations. For example the S.A.S missions tend to lead the player to do recon or stealth mi...
