Crackdown

- Xbox 360

When I found out the genius behind GTA was developing a new sandbox style game my interest level shot up. I had heard of Crackdown and figured I would check it out, but knowing that the man who created the sandbox standard for games was the brains behind the operation really got me interested. After trying the demo (again let this be a lesson to developers everywhere) I went out and reserved...

Lost Odyssey

- Xbox 360

You know why Famitsu gave it 9's and 10's out of 10? Because it is a great game. In fact, it is the best JRPG I have played since FFVII. If you dont like turn-based games, then this is the game most likely to make you like it! There is not a better-looking JRPG around, especially a turn based one! If you compare it to the gameplay graphics of FFXIII (only a few seconds of the demos are of...

Final Fantasy Crystal Chronicles: Ring of Fates

- Nintendo DS

Crystal Chronicles is a tale of magic, time, and worlds. Well, and the undying loyalty one sibling has for another. Crystals are the source of magic power and are used in peoples' everyday life. There are, however, certain individuals who have been swayed by evil and no longer have the ability to use the crystals. These of course are the hidden people who come out only to take what they wan...

Assassin's Creed

- Xbox 360

Assassin's Creed was one of the most highly anticipated games that I can remember in recent history. There was so much hype surrounding it that I never thought it would be possible for the game to live up to expectations. As usual though Ubisoft did not disappoint me and I found myself exuding a great amount of joy from stabbing person after person. Assassin's Creed is interesting in tha...

Mass Effect

- Xbox 360

Mass effect is a beautiful combination of game play, story, and everything else that a game should have. The story is so immersive if you let it settle in, and not to mention it is so deep that you have to make sure you don't fall to far in to it. The characters are also amazing. They just make you feel like you are right there talking to them. Here is the story so far. You are commander S...

Forza Motorsport 2

- Xbox 360

When Forza Motorsport debuted on the Xbox, it was Microsoft’s first foray into the racing simulator subgenre and surprisingly, the first time was the charm. Forza Motorsport earned many accolades from reviewers and gamers alike for its emphasis on realism, numerous customization options and in depth online options. Some even said it was better than Gran Turismo 4, the latest in the long line o...

Call of Duty: Modern Warfare

- PS3

Where do I begin with this game? This is a kick ass game. One of the best games on the PS3. Infinity Ward did an excellent job with this one. The game is a Masterpiece and will go down as a classic. While there is a single player campaign in Call of Duty 4, online multi player is where its at. There are all kinds of different types of online matches you can play in. There is also a ra...

Call of Duty: Modern Warfare

- PS3

Story: Alright, lets get this of first. The story mode is very short. You can finish it off on hard in about 8 or 9 hours. Took me a weekend, right after christmas. But, it is very fun, and I enjoyed it. It has some very intense moments, for example... **SPOILER** You play as two different players, switching off. One of them is in iraq, when a nuclear bomb goes off in a cutscene. it puts...

Guitar Hero III: Legends of Rock

- Xbox 360

Campaign The storyline is the exact same as the previous Guitar Hero games. You start out as a small band, and work your way up to the top of the charts. The only thing that they have really added is a few cutscenes after each tier, but the cutscenes really aren't that great. They're maybe 30 seconds with something like your band being featured on the news or something like that. Som...

Uncharted: Drake's Fortune

- PS3

Well what Can I say? Another great PS3 title you must own. Uncharted Drakes forturn is one hell of a game. The game is developed by the guys at Naughty Dog. You might also remember them back in the days of the PS1 when they first introduced Crash Bandicoot, and when they introduced Jak and Daxter during the PS2 era. So now the guys at Naughty dog bring you a new franchise that is just as g...

Gears of War

- Xbox 360

Campaign The Planet Sara, inhabited by humans, is under attack by the Locust Horde. Things aren't looking good for humanity, and it is up to you, Marcus Fenix, and the rest of COG, to save the human race from extinction. I was really interested in the story of this game from the start, and stayed interested until the end. I found the main character, Marcus Fenix, to be very likeable, and s...

Halo 3

- Xbox 360

Campaign Halo 3 consists of 9 levels, and can take anywhere from 6-10 hours to finish based on your skill level, difficulty settings, etc. Although the campaign isn't to lengthy, it offers great replayability, with skulls to collect, and hey..who wouldn't want to brag to their friends that they just beat Halo 3 on Legendary. As for when you get bored of the campaign, that's where the skull...

Lost Odyssey

- Xbox 360

With the death of Final Fantasy as I knew and loved it, I was left with an empty void for my JRPG needs. Thankfully Mistwalker still embraces and recognizes that there is still a market for JRPG's. Unfortunately to date they have yet to come up with a game that is anywhere near the level of what Final Fantasy used to be; or currently is for that matter. Lost Odyssey follows an immortal n...

Calling All Cars

- PS3

A raucous good time, Calling All Cars is an original counter to the library of the Live Arcade. It truly is multi-player buckets of fun, and even with dwindling online participation Calling All Cars it still holds its own as a fantastic party game. You play as a copper against up to three opponents with the very narrow goal of nabbing the criminal and transporting him to the local jail....

MLB 08: The Show

- PS3

I saw the pics and read the previews like everyone else and got excited about a baseball game done right. I played the demo and experienced the gameplay and caught myself just staring at the scenes in front of me. No other game has made me feel like I was at the actual ballpark than MLB 08 the show. Presentation - Top notch quality and attention to detail in the smallest nuances. The d...

Omega Five

- Xbox 360

Omega Five is a good example of a game that symbolizes a dying genre. The horizontal scrolling shooter or ‘shmup’ if you will. The closest example of a game that it is comparable to is an arcade/Genesis classic Forgotten Worlds. I personally thought it was a great game, but then again I am a big enthusiast of retro games. In Omega Five, you play as one of two (in the beginning) arbitrarily...

Army of Two

- Xbox 360

Army of Two is a fun game. It has an excellent combat system, good weapon selections and a nice amount of customization combined with a campaign designed with two people in mind for every section. Graphically the game is top-notch and is one of the better looking games for the Xbox 360. The sound effects are on par with what you would expect from a shooter and the voice acting, while a b...

BioShock

- Xbox 360

Bioshock was one of those games I had heard a lot about and got a lot of hype but I never really took interest in. However the developers, in all their infinite wisdom released a demo that allowed myself and anyone with an xbox live account to experience Rapture first hand before the games release. The next day I was at Gamestop pre-ordering the game; so let this be a lesson to all developers...

Army of Two

- Xbox 360

After a brief stint with the US military, Army of Two’s main characters, Salem and Rios, head for the private sector to make some extra dough. Playing with a friend or playing with the AI, Army of Two provides a unique cooperative experience. Giving ordinary people licenses to kill is an issue this game looks at. While the game has very little to do with the actual current conflict happening in...

Burnout Paradise

- PS3

I remember my first day in New York City alone. I recently moved to New York and the feeling of being in the city, alone, and completely on your own is surreal. Where do I go? How do I get back? Will I ever learn a place that's this big? I found myself asking these very same questions again when I first picked up Burnout. The game doesn't hold your hand like a traditional racer. You're jus...
