Call of Duty: World at War

- PS3

I had a bit of an FPS frenzy recently, release dates and payday conspired against me, as did a deal at Asda, and I got hold of Bioshock, Resistance 2, and Call of Duty: World at War, within three weeks, and now I've completed all three, giving me a lot of comparisons to look at. To be honest CoD:WaW plays very much like CoD:4, not a bad thing considering how good that was. Control is tight...

OK, let me get this out there right off the bat: no, I'm not going to say that the controls are the serious flaw. In terms of precision, the controls can take some getting used to. Sackboy jumps high or low depending on the pressure with which you push down on the button. He feels "loose" while in mid-air, but this is a result of the ability to change the direction of his jump whil...

Gears of War 2

- Xbox 360

I'm not here to use flowery language and try to write a pulitzer prize winning piece of criticism, let me just say that straight out. I'm a gamer, and I'm going to write about this game from the perspective of whether or not it is worth playing. First and foremost, let's discuss the gameplay. If you've played the first Gears of War game, then you know exactly what to expect here. The co...

Sonic Unleashed

- Xbox 360

For awhile now Sonic has been suffering from really lack luster releases. Many say that Sonic has not seen a good 3d game since Sonic Adventure 2 on the Dreamcast. Sonic Unleashed aims to fix that. Does it succeed? Yes it does but that's not to say it's anywhere near perfect. First off lets start with how the game looks. Upon booting up the game you are greeted with a stunning CG opening w...

Tomb Raider: Underworld

- Wii

Though Tomb Raider games have always been great games for me, I think Tomb Raider Underworld both gave me things to love and hate. Tomb Raider's trademark platforming remains even better than ever and will be a treat for an fan of platformers. The levels are so well designed and the depth is amazing, some of the best on the Wii to date. The elements of traveling to different areas of the...

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...
