Beyond Protocol

- PC

I stumbled over this game a short time ago and, wow... It really does give you the ability to make your own empire. You can design just about all of your technology, if that's a laser beam that does 100 damage every 12 seconds, or a missile that does 5000 damage every 60 seconds, or a cheap radar that works as long range detection but sucks for fire support, or an expensive radar that does...

Gears of War 2

- Xbox 360

Gears of War 2 is a worthy sequel. It is everything Gears of War 1 was, and better. The Game added new weapons, a longer campagin, and so much more. I will start with the story. Set after the first game, Marcus and Dom are at a Hospital with their new trainee, Benjamin Carmine. Starting from here, the game becomes an adventure. The things you do in the story will no doubt suprise you....

Madden NFL 09

- PS3

Football is here again and surely it is time for yet another Madden. I give Madden props for being one of the best selling games each year, despite it being nearly the same game…each year. For those who know me know that I am very skeptical when it comes to Madden. My criticism was given a huge push when both EA and the NFL decided to turn video game football into a monopoly and have EA be t...

Far Cry 2

- Xbox 360

I had no intension of buying Far Cry 2, especially after the last iteration didn’t do so well. It was one of those “spur –of-the-moment” things, with the thought of simply returning it in 7 days. Here weeks later and I still have the game and I’m one happy gamer, here’s why. Far Cry 2 puts you as a hired gun aimed at bringing down “The Jackal”, a gun-runner who arms the two established fa...

Crisis Core: Final Fantasy VII

- PSP

Crisis Core is the prequel of Final Fantasy VII and is the fourth installment to the Final Fantasy VII compilation. The game has been announced since E3 04 and since then, information for the game has been minimal. After years of waiting, Crisis Core has finally arrived. Does this game hit a fan service or is it just another failed FFVII spin-off title? Like most Final Fantasy games, the...

Call of Duty: World at War

- PS3

Call of duty World at war review Better graphics than resistance, better gore than gears, forget about our exclusives, Call of Duty's back and it's still the daddy. It doesn't take long to know a great game is a great game, especially with WW2. Treyarch uses the same opening tactic as it did with Call of Duty 3, throwing the player in head first, arrogantly assuming that everybody has...

Gears of War 2

- Xbox 360

I've been playing the game since it first came out. I also took my vacation just so I could be lazy around the house and play this all the time I wanted too. I am EXTREMELY disappointed in this game. The campaign is just alright at best. I like getting to know the characters a little bit better, but the ending?..come on, give me a break. No final boss? What kind of crap is that. As...

Devil May Cry 4

- PS3

Devil May Cry 4 is the latest installment to the Devil May Cry series. There are two noticeable changes many people who were following this game have noticed from previous ones; the first is that DMC4 is the first Devil May Cry game that is multiplatform. Also, Dante is no longer the main character. Being a fan of the previous DMC games, well except 2, this game was a must get. Does Nero, w...

Resistance 2

- PS3

Resistance: Fall of Man arguably the best PS3 game in the PS3's early years but how does Resistance 2 build up on that formula. Well to sum it up it turned Taiwan into China. Yes Resistance 2 has improved drastically and scale is the most accurate term to desicribe this game. The Single Player experience given to you does not draw you in right away especially with the lack of a narrator th...

Call of Duty: World at War

- Xbox 360

Ok then. Everybody has heard of Call Of Duty 4 Modern Warfare. But what about the latest installment of Call of Duty? As we go back to World War 2 we see a side of war that is gruesome, but very real. For the first time in a Call of Duty game we fight as the US Marine’s in the pacific, and a slightly over used Soviet front. This game is based upon the Call of Duty 4 engine, so we have all...

Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of the Patriots

- PS3

Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of the Patriots is the latest installment to the Metal Gear Solid series. As a fan of MGS, this game was a must own. The cliffhanger left in MGS2 was the main reason I was anticipating this game. I wanted to know the answer. How will Kojima pull it off? I didn’t care for the reviews; I ignored the spoilers and kept counting the days until the game’s release. Now the ga...

Valkyria Chronicles

- PS3

When I first saw Valkyria Chronicles, I was quickly impressed, and the game was kept under my radar ever since. The art style and graphics were amazing, and the battle system was unique. After months and months of waiting, the game has finally come out. Does the game impress or is it just another failed Sega game? Anyone who has seen screens or videos of Valkyria would agree that the game...

Rock Band: AC/DC

- PS3

I am as biased to AC/DC as they come. I love their music, their concerts, their DVDs, their hoodies…their everything. When the time came when I heard AC/DC was coming to Rock Band I was ecstatic. My one complaint of Rock Band was that they were too focused on today’s generation of music and not so much the classics. Here they are, bringing (what I consider) the greatest rock band to the gam...

Mirror's Edge

- PS3

Mirror's Edge was a game that impressed me with it's concept and I thought great now someone is finally trying to bring Breakdown to the next level. While I learned I was off the mark a bit I was still interested. Now that the game is finally here I have to say that I'm a bit disappointed. First off I have to get this off my chest. Whoever decided that Mirror's Edge should have those Horri...

Too Human

- Xbox 360

It has been almost ten years since we first heard about Too Human, not that it has been in development, or has been the same game for those ten years like some games (I'm looking at you Duke Nukem), but it seems that it is finally time for Too Human to grace us with its presence. In Too Human you are Baldur, a god who has recently been rescued from the depths of hell to resume his rightfu...

Mirror's Edge

- PS3

A lot of people seemed to complain about the AI in Resistance 2, it was (and I admit) hard to not get hit by bullets from chimeran pc's. However if you thought the trial & error from Resistance 2 was a pain, why not try Mirror's Edge? The difficulty in Resistance 2 is set by you, meaning if you put it on easy the bullets wont hit you near as often. In Mirror's Edge the difficulty can...

LittleBigPlanet

- PS3

LittleBigPlanet was one of the most anticipated games of 2008. First debuting at GDC 2007 it has caught the attention of the industry and has been heralded as the "killer app" for the PS3, but is it worth that claim? LittleBigPlanet is a do-it-yourself platformer. Typical actions such as jumping and moving left the right is seen, but is broken up by the ability to grab certain ob...

Dead Space

- Xbox 360

As technology progresses, it seems that it has become more and more difficult to create a truly frightening video game without back stepping into the old mechanics that made those few classic examples the terrifying experiences the way they were. In comes Dead Space, a brand new property from EA Redwood Shores that attempts to modernize the game play without losing that scary feel. Dead Space...

LittleBigPlanet

- PS3

LittleBigPlanet is one of the only games alongside Call Of Duty: World At War, Metal Gear Solid 4 and Star Wars: The Force Unleashed, to be hyped to death, and actually live up to its hype, unlike Grand Theft Auto 4 (As many would say although I completely disagree). In LittleBigPlanet, you play as Sackboy, an adorable little character, who lives up to his name! He is a small person, and he i...

Call of Duty: World at War

- PC

I started playing this game with fairly high expectations. I was expecting something similar to Call of Duty: Modern Warfare. Oh, crushed hopes, thy name is Call of Duty: World at War. As I started the single player campaign I immediately noticed Kiefer Sutherland's voice. Nice touch. Then I noticed the pretty and well done intro/loading videos, which cleverly mix computer animation with genu...
