Gears of War 2

- Xbox 360

One of the many disappointments of the holiday season was Gears Of War 2. In October last year, writing on the subject of sequels, I wrote that : “Nothing out there gives a development team more energy and drive than previous success but this also brings other problems into the fray like ego clashes, unreasonable pay demands and over ambitious game design.” Well it seems like I hit the nail on...

Resident Evil 5

- PS3

I never played Resident Evil 4. In fact the last Resident Evil I played right through was Resident Evil 2, and that was back in the Playstation 1 era. I was a massive fan of it. By todays standards its terrible, but no one can deny the atmosphere of Resident Evil 2 was eerie. It set the mood and you felt like you were in a fight for your life. At the time it was a spooky experience. My how gam...

MadWorld

- Wii

Madworld is an great game of near endless world experimentation in a rebirth of the beat-em-up genre. Levels are vast and filled to the brim with stuff to do to your hapless enemies. Though there are basically only 5 or 6 basic environmental maneuvers each level reinvents them and changes how they work keeping the basic formula feeling fresh level to level. On top of that bonus rounds throw in...

Gears of War 2

- Xbox 360

When I first played the original Gears game, I was amazed. It was a game that was breathtaking with its graphics and gameplay. The storyline was like watching an action movie, and the best part was that I controlled it all. I replayed the campaign several times and even with Gears 2 out I occasionally replay a chapter or two. Gears of War 2 is no different from the first. Now I don't mean...

Killzone 2

- PS3

Killzone 2 has easily claimed the most hyped title for gaming recently. Gamers had crazy expectations for this title, and the pre-release reviews praised it highly. Now that is has been officially released in every territory, the gamers got to see how the game lived up to the hype. They found out however, that instead of living up the hype, for many, it surpassed it. Killzone 2 is set in a...

Street Fighter IV

- Xbox 360

Capcom is the father to many a classic series including Mega Man, Resident Evil, and of course, Street Fighter. Being the most successful, Street Fighter II was one of the most popular fighters in the history of video games. Many sequels and spin-offs spawned from its enormous success, but none hit home like the fighting classic. It’s no wonder then why Capcom decided to unleash the behemoth th...

Watchmen: The End is Nigh

- PS3

Now...the first red flag for most people on this subject is that it's a movie tie-in game. The second red flag is that it's based on one of the most influential graphic novels of all time, therefore it has a fanboy-expectation rating in the 10 digit-range. All I've been hearing is how bad it sucks balls and that everyone should avoid it. While I don't believe that EVERYONE should avoid it, j...

Killzone 2

- PS3

Killzone 2. They (and by they I mean fanboys) said it couldn't be done on a console but Killzone is here with a huge bang. We waited and now we have seem what video games are truly capable of. Killzone has met and gone beyond the hype to become a true masterpiece to add to PS3's ever growing collection. Killzone 2 is set in a futuristic war between the Helghast and the ISA. This war has be...

Killzone 2

- PS3

Having been on N4G for sometime now I haven't seen a game generate as much hype and controversy from PS3 and 360 fanboys since Metal Gear Solid 4. That already gives it a lot of merit. Some fans were secretly and openly hoping that MGS4 would flop. When it didn't they started saying its a movie and not a game. Killzone 2 also had people wanting it to flop, and because it hasn't they started say...

Killzone 2

- PS3

Nearly everything about this game is exceptional. Every time I sit down to play it I end up getting sucked into playing for longer than I had planned to. The campaign is great. The AI is mostly extremely intelligent and the scenarios the game throws at you are just awesome. One moment you're taking a bridge with rockets flying all around you and shock troopers rushing at you with knives...

LittleBigPlanet

- PS3

LittleBigPlanet is amazing. That's all you need to know about this review. LittleBigPlanet takes old school platformers, modernized them by allowing gamers to create so much to play them how you want. First the campaign. Yes there's a campaign in LBP. Well sort of. The developers created plenty of stages for you to play through in which your sackboy/sackgirl must save the world from a...

Killzone 2

- PS3

I did my first midnight purchase of game last night and it will come as no surprise to what that game was. I was a little disappointed that gamestop didn't have more of an event planned but me and about 20 other dudes got our copies and I probably was not the only one who woke the neighbors at 2 am with the most unbelievable 7.1 sound I have heard in a game, or just about anything else for that...

Killzone 2

- PS3

This is not a Call of Duty 4 clone. In fact, other than offering a control scheme similar to COD4, this game couldn't be further away from COD4. This is a simulation of war. As such, the run and gun of other first person shooters is intentionally absent. Guerrilla did not want you to engage a group of Helghast as you would a group in COD4. You have to take cover, constantly watch your flanks, a...

Left 4 Dead

- PC

Valve has been at the forefront of PC gaming since 1996 with their debut game Half-Life launching in 1998, with universal acclaim I might add and it seems that they've done it again. Left 4 Dead certainly doesn't reinvent or innovate the FPS genre however there's an amount of polish in this first person shooter only present in Valve developed games. Anywhere from the character animati...

Killzone 2

- PS3

Minutes after being let loose in the Killzone world you get a genuine sense of diverse environment. The vast amount of onscreen objects at one time is stunning, bullets, shrapnel and plenty of dead helghast. The game visually is absolutely stunning, when played in 1080p it is absolutely flawless, not a single jagged edge – kudos to Guerilla on this, they done a great job of ensuring they mainta...

Street Fighter IV

- PS3

However it has lost a lot of its charm. World Warrior was followed by Champion Edition, Hyper Fighter, New Challengers and New Challengers Turbo. All of which were the same game with a few extra tweaks. Then came Alpha Warrior Dreams, which was my favorite of the series. But then that was followed by Alpha 2, Alpha 3 and many other special editions. This cycle was repeated when Street Fighter 3...

Folklore

- PS3

Almost every developer who has tried to impliment the PS3's motion sensing have failed miserably, but after playing Folklore not only have I found a game that impliments it perfectly I was surprised about the beauty of its design. The game has you play as either Ellen a young woman in search of her missing mother and Keats a journalist for an occult magazine, both protagonists are lured to an i...

50 Cent: Blood on the Sand

If there is a game to get inspiration its from the gears of war franchise but 50 Cent:Blood On The Sand isnt just taking features from the gears game,its taking a very good stuff from every good game you can think of ,and making it just superb. Story: The premis of this game is that you are 50 Cent probably one of the most influential in the rnb\rap buisness in recent years,so the G-UNIT...

Naruto: Ultimate Ninja Storm

- PS3

I'm an anime fan. A few years ago I was told to watch Naruto. When I watched it I wasn't a big fan. I couldn't see what the fuss was about. So when I saw the countless amount of Naruto games come out I wasn't excited. After all, I was a huge DragonBall Z fan and most of the games sucked. So what got my attention ? What was it about Naruto: Ultimate Ninja Storm that caught my attention ? Gr...

Warhawk

- PS3

There's no single player campaign; however, if you enjoy online games, then there should no questions about whether you should buy Warhawk. Warhawk is the most fun I've had on an online game EVER. Warhawk puts you in a full out battle with jets, 4x4's, tanks, turrets, jetpacks, drop ships and more in an effort to kill as many people as possible while trying to stay alive. There are multi...
