Iron Man

- PS3

Hopes were mixed for this game. On the plus side, it had SEGA behind it, who have had some noticeable recent releases, particularly Condemned 2. On the other hand, this is a film based game, and any avid gamer should know that most of these turn out to be far from perfect. In hindsight though, giving this game the benefit of the doubt was regrettable. There are some positive aspects to Iron Man...

Castlevania: Lament of innocence

- PS2

Castlevania has had a, let's just say, difficult time going from 2D to 3D. And although the two Nintendo 64 titles were a little on the weird side, they were still pretty fun. But the first PS2 effort has got to be the worst Castlevania game I've ever played. Gameplay For some reason, Konami thought somewhere along the line, that changing this Castlevania game from an adventure game to a...

Castlevania: Curse Of Darkness

- PS2

After playing the 3D horror that was Lament of Innocence, I was dreading playing this indirect sequel. So did it fix the things that were wrong with Lament of Innocence? Yes, but not all of it. Storyline The story takes place around the end of the 15th century, which is a good 350-400 years after when Lament of Innocence was based. Trevor Belmont has vanquished Dracula, but before he le...

Dragon Ball Z: Budokai Tenkaichi 3

- PS2

Dragon Ball Z is a favorite of mine. One of those animes I got nto at age 9 and never really stopped watching. Then I bought the first Budokai game and then the second and the third. However I only bought the first Tenkaichi game since the second was basically the same but with more characters so I thought I would wait for the third. I finally got the third game at a bargain price. The bas...

Kingdom Hearts II: Final Mix

- PS2

When the first Kingdom Hearts came out to the states it made a huge impact on most, if not all fans of RPGs and video gaming. With the combined effort of two big companies, Square-Enix and Disney, there was no reason to let this game go under any gamer's radar. Characters from both universes collide in a epic story that soon launched a sequel that made an even bigger success. Kingdom Hearts 2 h...

Final Fantasy XII

- PS2

Wow! What a difference this remake has for any fan of the series! With a special DVD with all sorts of goodies and a new mode to play, could this be worth the import? Let's find out! Unlike the remake of Kingdom Hearts 2, there aren't any new scenes to be discovered, as of yet. In fact, there are very few differences between this and the original. The textures, modeling, music, environment...

Monster Hunter 2

- PS2

Monster Hunter 2 Dos is a total new structure from the other PS2 versions, mainly due to the new weapons and environments. There are a LOT more monsters to deal with and more items to claim! New innovative features such as night and day effect the type of monsters and items appear, same for the seasons. You will be spending a good amount of time on the first stage, gathering materials for your...

Ratchet & Clank Future: Tools of Destruction

- PS3

Ever since it first outing on the ps2, platforming fans have had an amazing experience with Ratchet and Clank. But I never personally liked any of them. I don't know why, but that is the truth. Well I can honestly say that the latest addition to the Ratchet and Clank series has changed my mind, with its intuitive combat, engrossing characters, and entertaining story. First things first, lets...

Haze

- PS3

I will admit, i thought about canceling my preorder at gamestop due to all the terrible reviews from respected websites. I am a huge FPS fan and have been playing COD4 a couple times a week for the last 6 months. It's not like i was expecting Haze to be incredible. It's not even a Sony exclusive and wasn't even supposed to be exclusive to the ps3 in the first place. Why people were expectin...

Wild Earth: African Safari

- Wii

The Wii has become a system where a bunch of 3rd party game companies are trying their new game ideas. Unfortunately, most of them are terrible. That being said, Wild Earth: African Safari isn't half-bad for being from a company I've never heard of before (Does anyone know who Majesco is?). It's certainly flawed, though. Overview Here's what you need to know: You're a photagrapher on a s...

The World Ends With You

- Nintendo DS

It's not very often you see a entirely new IP from Square-Enix and one look at The World Ends With You will make alot of people wonder why. The World Ends With You separates it self from the norm in quite a few ways making it one of the best DS games out there. The one big thing that The World Ends With You does different is that it takes place in the real world. You follow Neku a boy who...

History Channel: Battle for the Pacific

- PS3

Normally I would say better late than never when it comes to reviewing a game, however better never is by far the superior option with Battle for the Pacific. At least some good can come out of this; others will be warned of and won’t have to experience what I’ve been through. Though you might already have known that, at least given the quality of some of the previous History Channel releases....

Metal Gear Solid 3: Snake Eater

- PS2

I thought, with Metal Gear Solid 4 right around the corner, I ought to make my first review for Metal Gear Solid 3: Snake Eater... Now this is the first and only Metal Gear game I've played so i can't make comparisons and say "oh this one is better then that one". Although, this eliminates a bias so i don't hate on a game just because its not as good as it's predecessor, instead...

Dark Sector

- PS3

Believe it or not Dark Sector was the first ‘next-gen’ game actually announced, set for the PS3 and Xbox 2 (what it was known as then). So with such a long development time one would expect this to be one of the best games around, yet for some reason, Dark Sector has just sneaked out to release. No huge fan-fair was made, and I have to admit, the game even fell of my radar. So much so that I ha...

Patapon

- PSP

Pata... Pata... Pata... Pon... Pon... Pon... Pata... Pon .....Fever!!!! Perfecting this beat is what drives you in this game. The creator of Loco Roco has come up with something special...something special which involves tiny eyeballs, drumming and singing trees. How does this work you ask? Bloody well is the answer; this side-scroller fills you up inside with a weirdness which makes you...

Jam Sessions

- Nintendo DS

INTRO No, it's not Guitar Hero for the DS. It's not even a real game. This game simply turns your DS into a virtual guitar (more acoustic than electric). You 'strum' the touchscreen while choosing the chord with the d-pad.........thats about it. There is no story mode, no scoring system and no music or vocals. Most of the songs included, I have never heard of. The songlist includes Bob Marl...

SingStar

- PS3

I pre-ordered SingStar PS3 from Amazon and was eager to get. The package came with the game disk, and two wired microphones (why they are not wireless is beyond me.) After getting it, I noticed that there were some descent songs on the disk but with few exceptions there wasn't much to write home about. But I didn't really care being that there was supposed to be 200+ songs in the singsta...

Condemned 2: Bloodshot

- PS3

SEGA has been on a bit of a roll recently, with lots of recent releases, some hits and some misses, however Condemned 2 can easily fit into the former. Condemned 2 is the sequel to the Xbox 360 launch title. Rather uniquely the game is played in first person with hand to hand combat and combos fulfilling most of the action. And it works in such a way which doesn’t just involve holding down the...

GRID

- PS3

I must admit, driving games have never really been my thing. I've played most of Codemasters previous efforts, and found it difficult at times even making it around the first bend! This is pretty much the same for most driving games that I attempt to play. I'm just a bit rubbish at racers. Despite this, I've still got a decent feel for Codemasters racers. Race Driver: GRID may not be TOCA...

Portal

- PC

I had been holding off on Portal for a good while. I had heard all the praise and watched all the videos, but I kept hearing how short the game was and that turned me off. However, I fell upon a flash based version of Portal and after playing for about ten minutes, I knew that I had to have this game. I ran straight to Circuit City the next day and picked up Portal for ten dollars. Upon...
