Gran Turismo 5: Prologue

- PS3

I know nothing about cars. Until last Friday I knew nothing about torque, slipstreaming, tires or drifting. And, I'll be honest, the only the reason I do now is because of Wikipedia. Polyphonic Digital's selling point for GT5P has been that it is "The Driving Simulator". All credit to them, the physics and mechanics of the game try so hard to share the subtlety and complexit...

Resident Evil 4

- GameCube

I have been playing games for a very long time. I have played games from just about every genre and from just about every developer. Every great once in awhile I come across a game that truly earns the title of an instant classic; Resident Evil 4 is one of those rare instant classics. If you are a fan of the Resident Evil series you already know that although each game stands independent...

Super Smash Bros. Brawl

- Wii

Its no doubt that unless you been living under a rock that you haven’t heard of Super Smash Bros Brawl. If You haven’t its basically a fighting game where you play as Nintendo characters, and two other non Nintendo characters, and you have to make you're opponent fall out of the ring. But that’s not all there are so many combos and different ways you can come up with to beat your opponent. This...

Pro Evolution Soccer 2008

- PS3

PES2008 PS3 Review I am a big football/soccer fan. So, as a Brazilian and long date gamer I have been playing soccer videogames since the old times at Atari. Talking about the PES series, the 2008 game it is not the biggest goal. Sometimes the game feels that you have a PS3 to play PS2 games. The graphics are not good enough for the next gen and the user interface is miles away from...

Tom Clancy's Ghost Recon Advanced Warfighter 2

- Xbox 360

I've always been a big fan of the Tom Clancy games. You can call them expansion packs from their predecessors or you can proclaim that they are the same thing over and over again but they are always solid games. For me what they lack in ingenuity is made up for in reliability. Ghost Recon Advanced Warfighter 2 (GRAW 2) is no different in this aspect; a solid sequel and although more of the s...

Resistance: Fall of Man

- PS3

Resistance Fall of man was great the first time I played it early 2007 when I bought my ps3, and I decided to plug the game back in and was hugely disappointed. The game didn't age fairly well. I'll first mention how brilliant the guns were, and how amazingly fun they were to use. I had a blast using the auger, the bulls eye, and the laark but, the level design and graphics haven't aged well. T...

Tom Clancy's Rainbow Six Vegas 2

- PS3

Having owned the PS3 since launch, I have seen games come from sub par ports to well polished hits. Just look at Vegas 1 compared to Call of Duty 4. I bought the first Vegas expecting a well rounded company such as UBISOFT to have put a lot of effort in it, but no. This time around I was sure they wouldn't bite me again. Where should I begin? Well let me start with where I started. I pick...

Arctic Stud Poker Run

- PC

The phrase "guilty pleasure" comes to mind; Arctic Stud Poker Run is devious fun! Vengeance, sneakiness, nastiness, guile and cunning are encouraged in this game. If it feels like you're cheating, your probably doing something right! Don't be misled by the name. Though certain Poker rules apply, "luck" is not really a huge factor, since stealing cards and blowing up opp...

Tom Clancy's Rainbow Six Vegas 2

- PS3

Okay, by this point we all know that the PS3 version of Rainbow Six: Vegas 2 (RSV2) is having server issues. Over my gaming career I have developed a good amount of respect for Ubisoft and with this in mind the fact that the servers for RSV2 do not work right will not factor into my overall score. I am certain that Ubisoft will correct the problem and therefore I feel that reviewing the game...

Condemned: Criminal Origins

- Xbox 360

I have always enjoyed a good scare. For me nothing gets your blood pumping like being on the edge of your seat just waiting for something to jump out at you. In that respect I had found what I was looking for when I first tried the Condemned: Criminal Origins demo when I bought my Xbox 360 (once again I will reiterate the importance of demos). Condemned: Criminal Origins follows Ethan Th...

Conan

- Xbox 360

Call it a weakness but I will try any game where bodies can be dismembered. It doesn't matter how good or bad the game is I will try it just to cut some heads off. Conan was no different in this aspect, I saw some game play videos of guys loosing arms and I was all over it a few days after it came out. Conan could have an interesting story if it had been told better. In the beginning of...

Lost Planet: Extreme Condition

- Xbox 360

Now if you read my reviews on a regular basis you know how I feel about game demos. Lost Planet is yet another example of how important it is to release a demo if you have a quality product. The multiplayer demo for Lost Planet sucked me in and convinced me that Lost Planet was a game worth buying. When I was younger and games started to get stories instead of just walking through multip...

Mass Effect: Bring Down the Sky

- Xbox 360

I’ve never reviewed an expansion pack, but I will review without elements such as graphics and sound, assuming readers have read that in my original Mass Effect review. Bring Down the Sky is a whole new system with multiple planets for you to explore. It adds a new race to the game, the Batarians, and adds more to the overall story, but does not give any hints into a game’s sequel. It is s...

Gears of War

- Xbox 360

Like a lot of other people I bought into the hype and picked up a copy of Gears of War the first week it came out. I wasn't really anticipating the game but when it finally arrived I guess like everyone else I was influenced by the onslaught of advertising. With Gears of War opening me up to so many things I had never seen before (I had just bought an xbox at that point), I can't really say t...

Halo 3

- Xbox 360

While this review is going to be severely harsh and the game will receive an incredibly low score from me, it really deserves it. From the lackluster single campaign to unenjoyable multiplayer maps, this game has to be one of the most disappointing games ever made. Yes, it wasn't one of the worst fps ever made, or one of the worst sequels ever made, but it was clearly a huge disappointment....

Halo 3

- Xbox 360

Since being a fan of the original Halo, I was very excited about the whole hype about Halo3. To be honest, I'm the gamer who does not care about story lines...I just care about gameplay. Even in the first Halo, i never bothered with the story...I just played and fell inlove. Halo is one of a few games that shows off single player & Multiplayer, and yet again Bungie continues to pull out a b...

Condemned 2: Bloodshot

- Xbox 360

Ethan Thomas returns in Condemned 2: Bloodshot for more hobo bashing, skull cracking, "WTF" filled action. The story starts out one year after the ending of Criminal Origins, where our hero has really let himself go. However, after a year being away from SCU (Serial Crimes Unit), he is called into service once again due to a strange message left by Malcom Vanhorn (a character from t...

Command & Conquer 3: Tiberium Wars

- Xbox 360

I've always had a problem; I like Real Time Strategy (RTS) games but hate playing games on PC's. Thankfully EA has come to my rescue with Command and Conquer 3. Yes I know, RTS games were always designed for computers. Not only were they designed for computers but the sheer nature of the control scheme has always faced skepticism upon its transition to consoles. Command and Conquer 3: Tiber...

Hot Shots Golf: Out of Bounds

- PS3

Sometimes we all need a casual, slow relaxing game to take off the frustration of playing the hardcore ones and to keep us from throwing the controller into our TV's. Well, in a way HotShots Golf: Out of Bounds is that game, but it can also piss you off when you miss a shot :P This, like most golf games is easy to pick up and play. There's not much thinking involved for basic play. But onc...
