Chainsaws and Curbstomps 0

The original Gears of War was arguably the Xbox 360's first killer app. Thats not to say it didn't have its problems, though. It didn't have much of a story, the cover system occasionally had its problems, and the online play was kind of a afterthought. Gears of War tries to makes vast improvements to these problems, yet doesn't succeed in all of them. All in all, though, it is everything Cliffy B said it would be. It is "BIgger, Better, and more Badass."The biggest change made is the story. It'...

Best in the Series 0

Guitar Hero II is the sequel to the original Guitar Hero, the game that re-popularized the music and rhythm genre. Guitar Hero II takes everything from the first game, and expands making a bigger and better game. A few gameplay tweaks have been made to the game. Hammer-ons and pull-offs are now easier to do, and there are now three button chords. The game also includes a new "Pro-Face Off" mode. Instead of switching between parts like in the regular "Face Off" mode, you and your opponent both bo...

Star Wars: The Force Unleashed Review 0

Star Wars: The Force Unleashed is the game meant to bridge together the original trilogy and the prequel trilogy. While this may be the main draw for fans of series, I found the gameplay to be enjoyable, while not without its faults.You play as Starkiller, the secret apprentice of Darth Vader. You are then sent around the galaxy to do his bidding, i.e.; kill everything. But in all seriousness, the story is actually quite satisfying to play through. Even with its gameplay quirks. While the game i...

Uncharted: Drake's Fortune Review 0

Uncharted Drake's Fortune is Naughty Dog's first game for the Playstation 3. In it, you play as Nathan Drake, a descendant of Sir Francis Drake and a treasure hunter, in search of El Dorado's treasure along with Victor Sullivan and Elena Fisher. While they are searching, they are attacked by pirates and trapped on an island. The plot continues in interesting ways that make you want to keep playing through, even if some the plot elements are cliche. The gunplay is this game is coverbased, a la Ge...

Wii Sports Review 0

Wii Sports Comes packaged with the Wii. And this was a smart move by NIntendo as it shows off the Wii's Unique control scheme well.There are 5 games included in Wii Sports, all of which with fun multi-player. Tennis plays well, although sometimes it would be nice to be able to control the characters. Baseball is o.k, but it hurts that you don't field, that is done by the computer. Bowling Plays the best. Boxing is good, when it works. The doesn't always read your punches. Golfing is another game...

Top Spin Review 0

I got this and NCAA 2005 as a pack-in when i got my xbox. And i was surprised how good it was. Now im not a diehard, or even casuual tennis fan, ( I can name like 1 player, but he retired,) but this is really fun and addictive. And if it didnt come with the xbox i probbably would have over loooked this gem.The game plays very well. you can control how much power you put on it and what kind of hit you do. During the season you compete in tournaments all over the world, work with trainers to impro...

Rayman Raving Rabbids Review 0

Rayman Raving Rabbids is not like previous games (except Rayman Arena sorta,) Instead of a platformer, it is a party game. And this isn't a Mario Party rip-off either, it is a party game with many enjoyable games.the games in rayman have a wide range and are mostly enjoyable. the games range from on-rail fps's to disco dancing (my two favorites,) to soccor to cow throwing. some of the ones that aren't so good are Bunnies are heartless with pigs and bunnies dont slide. the games are really fun to...

Kingdom Hearts II Review 0

Gameplay in Kingdom Hearts 2 is very fun. X is to attack, and you can do a lot of different comninations for different attacks. O is to jump.Triangle is the reaction command. If you hit that at the right time you do attacks that do more damage. Triangle also talks to people and other things. From what i've heard, the camera was terrible in the first game. I found that it was great in this one. You can also do magic spells that can cure your team and attack. Magic can also summon characters to he...

Wii Play Review 0

Wii Play comes with a Wiimote for an extra $10. Now a lot of critics have been bashing it as a simple tech demo, and if it didn't come with with the extra wiimote, it couldn't be sold as a game. I disagree. I would buy it if it was a stand-alone game (but at like 30 bucks.) I think that it is a good game.Wii Play has 9 games. Shooting Range is a few stages of different things to shoot at. Like ballons, UFO's, tin cans, targets, frissbee-like things, and occasionally ducks. This game is one of my...

Ratchet and Clank: Up Your Arsenal Review 0

Rachet and Clank are back! And this time they have to stop the evil Dr. Nefarious from destroying all organic life in the universe. The gameplay has stayed the same. X is jump, O is shoot, Square is use the wrench, Triangle is the quick-select menu, and the analog stick or the d-pad is to move. This game feels like it has more of a military feel to it. This may be due to the fact that you often fight along with a small squad of robots. The space ship battles are gone. Giant Clank fights return t...

SSX Tricky Review 0

SSX Tricky is a very fun game. You do tricks by hitting one of the triggers or a combination of them. Then you can use Square to tweak the trick. If you you hit left or right on the d-pad a little bit before you go off a jump, you will spin, and if to hit up or down on the d-pad a little bit before, and you will do a flip. You have to hold the button to finish the spin or flip. You will get points to fill up the Uber Meter. You can use this to boost your speed at any time, by holding down Square...

Animal Crossing Wild World Review 0

Animal Crossing: Wild World is a lot like the original. It has you moving to a new town and making it great. While getting new tools, clothes and making your house better. But a few things have changed. First, there are no NES games. Was it because of the Classic NES Series of GBA games, or the Virtual Console, or cart limitations, or that Nintendo like messing with our minds, I don't know. There is also a coffee shop in the museum wher K.K. Slider plays songs on Saturdays. This Game also adds t...

Tony Hawk's Pro Skater 4 Review 0

Neversoft took the already fantastic Tony Hawk formula and added new tricks and a new goal system. The time I spent playing this game were some of my favorite gaming moments of all time. Wow... just wow...The basic gameplay has stayed the same. X is jump, Square is fliptrick, O is grab, triangle is grind, R2 is revert, up-down is manual, and the d-pad or the analog stick is move. But it also adds spine transers, by hitting R2 while in the air, you move to a ramp in front of the ramp you came off...

Elite Beat Agents Review 0

At first I didn't get what all the hype was about. "So what, it's tapping circles," I often said to myself. Then it won DS game of the year here at Gamespot and IGN, I decided to check it out. So I went to Gamespot to and downloaded the demo. I was immediatley addicted. After I downloaded the demo again and again over the next two months ( i waited so long because I was playing my Wii,) then I finally bought it.As i said before, the gameplay is basically tapping. When the big circle gets around ...

Crash Bandicoot: The Huge Adventure Review 0

Crash Bandicoot: The Huge Adventure is the last Crash game that I remember being great. It gives you the feel of Crash games from the Naughty-Dog era. You use the d-pad to move, A to jump, B to spin, and jump then either R or L, ( I forget which,) to do a belly-flop during the standard platforming levels. In each of these, there is a special zone, where you can earn more lives and wumpa fruit. Then you can unlock moves like sprinting and super spin. Then there are also parts where you are flying...

New Super Mario Bros. Review 0

New Super Mario Bros. Is an all-new 2D-Sidescroller for the DS. The game almost perfectly captures the feel of past 2D Mario Games.The gameplay stays the same but adds a few things. You kill enimies by jumping on their heads. If you get a super (red with white spots) mushroom, you get bigger. This also acts as a defense in case you get hit. If you do get hit you shrink back to regular size. If you get a mega (big and yellow with red spots) mushroom, you get huge for a short period of time and ar...

Tetris DS Review 0

Tetris ahs been around for years. And though its gameplay is simple, building blocks to make lines, its proves fun and addictive every time. In Tetris DS, the classic Tetris gameplay is back with some new modes.The basic Tetris mode is called Standard Mode. Where you try to get as many lines as you can. Push mode has you trying to move the tower of Tetris blocks towards your opponent by getting two lines at a time. Another mode is called Touch mode. In this mode you use the touch screen to move ...

Guitar Hero Encore: Rocks the 80's Review 0

Guitar Hero Encore: Rocks the 80's is not a real sequal to Guitar Hero II. It has been called an expansion pack. Well whatever you call it, it can also be called the worst Guitar Hero yet. It is pretty much Guitar Hero II with less content and an 80'c coat of paint.The gameplay stays the same. You play with a mini-guitar. One green, one red, one yellow, one blue, and one orange. On Easy, you only use the green, red, and yellow buttons. On Medium, you use the green, red, yellow, and blue buttons....

LEGO Star Wars II Review 0

Lego Star Wars II: The Original Trilogy is the sequal to Lego Star Wars. This time you play through the "Classic" Star Wars Trilogy instead of the "Meh" quality prequals. This game is better than the original because it is longer, harder, and it comes from a better source of material. In Lego Star Wars II: The Original Trilogy, you go through the original Star Wars Movies, each with a couple of stages. Gameplay in this game is still easy. Most of it can still be played with only one button, you ...

LEGO Star Wars Review 0

Lego Star Wars: The Video Game has you take control of play through the Star Wars prequals. While it may sound like it would be some cruddy movie tie-in, the result is an easy, short, fun game.You play through each prequal movie, which is divided into a few chapters. One of which is an on-rail ship shooter, and not that fun. The rest of them are action/platform levels. There are also many puzzle in these stages that are pretty easy. The game also has drop-in, drop-out co-op.In conclusion, Lego S...

Super Smash Bros. Brawl Review 0

Here it is... The most anticipated Wii game has arrived! Does it deliver? Of course! Super Smash Bros. Brawl has it all. Great characters, great levels, great fighting, great fan service and more. Is it perfect? No, but its close. The game trying to do too much that keeps it from perfection.Super Smash Bros. Brawl is mainly a fighting game. It is not like other fighting games though. Instead of having a health bar, each character has a percent meter that goes up as you take damage. The higher it...

Guitar Hero Review 0

Guitar Hero is not only the best Rythm game ever, but it is one of the greatest games period. It simply is a masterpiece.Now while you can play with a dualshock, it is ment to be played with the Mini-Gibson SG guitar. It has five colored buttons on it. One green, one red, one yellow, one blue, and one orange. On Easy, you only use the green, red, and yellow buttons. On Medium, you use the green, red, yellow, and blue buttons. On Hard and Expert, you use all of them. As the colored note scrolls d...

NBA Street V3 Review 0

NBA Street has always been a great series. It took street basketball, added pros into the mix, and made a really fun expierience. Now for V3, all this and more returns for the best NBA Street game to date. It may have seemed impossible, but the gameplay is even better in this game. Tricks are now done by moving the analog stick in different directions or by doing this and using different turboes combined. This "Trick Stick" may seem like a bad idea at first, but after you try it, you'll never wa...

NBA Street Volume 2 Review 0

NBA Street Volume 2 is the sequal to NBA Street. This game keeps the same, great gameplay. But adds some new things. There are two single player modes. One has you play as an NBA team, and play other NBA teams, and teams of NBA Legends. After you beat each team, you can take a player from them. The other mode has you create a character, make a team, and play other teams, around the country, gaining respect along the way. You also can take a player from each team after you beat them in this mode....

NBA Street Review 0

NBA Street is the first game in the NBA Street series. And while it's not the best in the series, (That would have to be V3,) it's still an incredibly fun arcade basketball game and definately worth playing.The gameplay is absolutely great. On offense, O is to shoot, or dunk if you are positioned right. X is to pass, Square is to do tricks. And the triggers are turbo, which you can use to move your player faster, or make variations on dunks and tricks. For each trick and each time you score, you...

Guitar Hero 3 Review 0

Two years ago, Harmonix popularized the music genre with a masterpiece called Guitar Hero. Two years later, they have left the series to work on bigger (and possibly better) things, with the Guitar Hero franchise going to Neversoft. A company most famous for the Tony Hawk Games.Neversoft kept the gameplay mostly the same. It is still meant to be played with a mini-guitar. It has five colored buttons on it. One green, one red, one yellow, one blue, and one orange. On Easy, you only use the green,...

Where is the other level? 0

Donkey Kong is a port of the original arcade game. There is one difference, though. It is missing one level from the original. This greatly hurts the game's value.There are three levels in the game. Two of them have you climbing up to where Princess Pauline, (Thats right, Peach isn't in this game,) is. The other one has you running over all the yellow blocks, making the tower collapse. On these levels you can also defeat enemies and collect some of Pauline's items for more points. Once you get t...

Tony Hawk's American Wastelan 0

Tony Hawk's American Wasteland has you play as a creted character who just moved out to L.A. In L.A. he meets up with a group of skaters and helps them make their skate park great. While this is one of the Tony Hawk series's best stories, it is also the easiest.The game takes place in L.A, with seven areas you can go to. These seven areas are connected by loading tunnels. You skate through these, while the next area loads. Much of the game's missions revolve around you learning the moves. While ...

Tony Hawk's Underground Review 0

Tony Hawk's Underground is the first game in the series to have a story mode. In it, you play as a New Jersey skater who is looking to become a Pro, in what is my personal favorite story in the series. This combined with the great gameplay results in a great game.The gameplay has mostly stayed the same. The biggest addition is the ability to get off your board and walk around. This ability is good for getting to places where you couldn't normally get to, but it is bad to have walking and climbin...

Tony Hawk's Proving Ground Review 0

Tony Hawk's Proving Ground is the 9nth game in the main Tony Hawk series. This time Neversoft gives you a choice on how you want to make your skater. They can skate as a career, to inovate, or they can just skate to skate. I for one thought this would open a whole world of opputunities, but instead we get this.One path your skater can take is career. Like the other paths in the game there are three skate episodes. One of them has you taking magazine pictures. Another has you skating in Arto Saar...

Mario Kart DS Review 0

Mario Kart is the best Mario Kart yet. The gameplay is great, the multiplayer is great, and it is has a lot to keep you playing for a long time.Every gameplay aspect is fine tuned in Mario Kart DS. Powersliding is used by pressing the R trigger and is used to get around tight corners, (and snaking.) The L trigger is used for throwing items. All of the items are from previous games and there are some new ones like the Bullet Bill. Throwing items works very well. A is used to accelerate and B is u...

Assasin's Creed Review 0

Assassin's Creed has you play as Altair, a legendary assassin in the year 1191 A.D. That is all I will say about the story so that I don't accidently spoil it for you. It is something you need to experience for yourselves.Altair has a few different weapons. They are a long sword, a short sword, throwing knives, fists, and the assassin's blade.  The combat works well, but occasionally has its problems. Altair has amazing acrobatical abilities. He can climb, and leap over almost anything. Although...

Tony Hawk's Project 8 Review 0

With Tony Hawk's Project 8, Neversoft ditches having long stories like in the last three games, and keep the story at a minimum and focuses mainly on skating. And while the gameplay is great. It seems that Tony Hawk is getting less fun.As I said before the gameplay stays great. A is to ollie, which you can hold longer to build up speed. B is to do grab tricks. X is to do flip tricks. And Y is grind. For these tricks, you can move the left analog stick in different directions to do different vari...

Link's Crossbow Training comes with the Wii Zapper for $20. While it can be played without it, the game was designed to utalize the Wii Zapper.

"Target Shooting" has you shooting mostly targets, with the occasional enemy. "Defender" has you in a stand still and aim around you. "Ranger" has you walking around trying to to kill a set amount of ...

I have to admit, I wasn't that excited for this game. I thought it would be good, but not great. After playing this though, I knew I was wrong. This is one f the greatest games that I've ever played.In terms of story, there's not much. Princess peach has been captured by Bowser, yet again, and Mario has to go rescue her.There is also an optional side story involving a princess named Rosalina. The gameplay, on the other hand, is where Galaxy really shines.It plays perfectly and doesn't use the Wi...
