An enjoyable and tense experience, but not without flaws 0

Condemned: Criminal Origins is horror, pure and simple. You play as an FBI agent called Ethan Thomas, and he's got problems, big problems. There is an intriguing story here, but it doesn't quite get enough attention to make it game's main selling point. The game is not quality throughout. The first level of the game is one of the scariest video game experiences I've ever had, with the expert use of lightning and enemy behavior that will make your heart thump out of your chest. However, the rest ...

Gore aplenty, but it doesn't keep Manhunt from becoming stale 0

Manhunt is probably one of the goriest games you'll ever play. Gamers these days look upon many a violent act, and with the improving graphics that the new generation of consoles have brought us, that violence is getting more and more graphic and realistic. Still, few games are as focused as Manhunt is. This game is entirely about slaughtering your opponents. The moment you start up the game, you are instructed to mess up an endless stream of guards and lunatics whose only desire is to do the sa...

All the glitches in Fable II don't stop it from being really fun 0

Fable II is an RPG from Lionhead. The Fable franchise is quite known for being one of the few RPGs on Xbox, although that has changed on the Xbox 360. Another reason for its fame is its creator, Peter Molyneux. Molyneux promised alot when he was making the first Fable, but many felt he failed to deliver in the end. However, I feel that the new Fable is right on the money.Molyneux claimed to have made one of the best video game stories of all time, but that is hardly true. The story isAlbion seem...

Fifa Street 3 is shallow, but fun 0

Fifa Street 3 is the newest edition in EA BIG's street version of the vastly popular sport that we all know and love as football. Or soccer if you will. Fifa Street 3 is actually quite a significant departure from the previous two entries in the series, both in graphical style and gameplay-wise. Whether that is actually is a good thing is entirely personal opinion, but I will say that Fifa Street 3 does play a bit more fluidly than its predecessors.The gameplay in Fifa Street 3 isn't quite like ...

An enjoyable brawler that really captures the feel of the film 0

The Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King is directly based on the Peter Jackson's movie of the same name, just like the game The Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers was based on the first two movies of the trilogy. You'd expect EA to quickly slap together a game in order to cash in on the franchise's enormous succes, but The Return of the King is in fact quite a good game.The Two Towers was narrated by Aragorn, but The Return of the King is narrated by Gandalf. The game features ample footage...

Little more than an interactive add 0

Dash of Destruction is a free game on Xbox Live Marketplace that serves as an advertisement for Doritos, the tasty brand of chips.Dash of Destruction is the result of a contest organised by Doritos. The goal was to think up a creative game that had Doritos as it's central theme. A guy named Mike Borland won the contest, and he got to have his game made with NinjaBee. The end result is Dash of Destruction. The buildings are fully destructable Surprisingly, Dash of Destruction is actually pr...

An amusing and occasionally hilarious adventure 0

Banjo Kazooie: Nuts & Bolts is the sequel to Banjo Tooie. However, while the previous installments in the franchise were platforming games in every sense of the word, this new Banjo Kazooie focuses on creating custom vehicles and then using them in various challenges peppered throughout the game worlds.Let your creativity run wild in the expansive vehicle builder The game starts out with Banjo and a chicken called Kazooie that lives in his backpack enjoying life. They are lazy and fat, but i...

Bigger, better and more badass does not do this game justice 0

Gears of War 2 is the follow-up to one of the most popular Xbox 360 games on the market. Indeed, the original Gears of War was a hit, with a multiplayer that was almost as popular as the likes of Halo 3 and Call of Duty 4. Epic has now delivered the second installment in what will undoubtedly become a longlasting franchise, -- even already with movie plans and whatnot -- and for the most part, it delivers.Gears of War 2 can be broken up into three modes. Campaign and competitive multiplayer obvi...

A departure from the previous Burnout that pays off in the end 0

Burnout Paradise is completely different from its predecessor, Burnout Revenge. At least, that's what it feels like when you first start playing. You need to stick with it for a while before all the pieces start falling into place. So let's talk about what's different. Burnout Revenge was an arcade racer that simply had you completing event after event, be they Road Rages, where you take out as many target cars as you can, or crashbreaker races, a race where you blow yourself up in the case of a...

It's ridiculously fun 0

It's impossible to avoid comparing Saints Row to GTA. The first Saints Row was viewed as a momentary fix for those craving GTA-esque gameplay on the next generation of consoles, and thus was infinitely compared to GTA. Well, the first Saints Row didn't really benefit from these comparisons, because while Saints Row was a valiant attempt at recreating GTA, Grand Theft Auto was still viewed as the better franchise. Volition is now trying to counter that by giving Saints Row 2 a personality of its ...

It'll get the adrenaline pumpin' 0

Burnout Revenge is a racing game that takes the concept of arcade racing just about as far as it can be taken. While sim racers like Forza 2 and Gran Turismo dedicate themselves to simulating racing, Burnout simply aims to offer speed thrills. Driving the wrong way at 200 miles per hour really gets your heart pumping.The races in Burnout Revenge are downright epicBurnout has a sense of speed few other games can offer. The game has alot of highperformance vehicles, though none of them are licence...

Forza Motorsport 2's most addicting aspect is collecting the cars 0

Forza Motorsport is a sim racer for the Xbox 360. I haven't really dug deep into the racing game genre, having only played Need for Speed Most Wanted and Burnout Revenge up until this point, but I can definitely see that Forza 2 has some real quality. The racing engine is tight, but the most addicting aspect to this game is building up a collection of cars, and painting them. RacingThis game is sim racing at it's very best, with only games like Gran Turismo rivalling it. The racing engine is hig...

A challenging, but very fun game. 0

God Hand is the final game from Clover Studio. It's a fun beat-em-up that doesn't take itself seriously at all and has a lot of depth under the hood. It's got some nice length to it, it took me slightly under 11 hours to complete the game on normal the first time through.You have a motherload of damaging moves at your disposalGod Hand features a fantastic combat system that's completely customizable through the main menu. A dynamic difficulty setting also makes it one of the most challenging gam...

Apparently playing a toy miniguitar with no strings is awesome. 0

GHII is the followup to the vastly popular Guitar Hero. I haven't played the original yet, but I did play GHIII before GHII. II and III are very comparable, but III has a tiny edge for me; I like the song selection on GHIII better. At least, An awesome visual style is presentthere are more songs I really like on GHIII, but GHIII has some truly awful choises as well, whereas GHII has no absolutely terrible songs. Ofcourse this is just a matter of music taste, if you find yourself wondering which ...

A very good shooter with fantastic production values. 0

The Darkness is a FPS from Starbreeze, the developers of Chronicles of Riddick. In the game you play as Jackie Estacado. On the night of his twenty-first birthday, Jackie finds out he's being possesed by a demon called The Darkness. Manifesting as two demon snakes sprouting out of his shoulders, The Darkness helps Jackie out in taking revenge on his Uncle Paulie, who has wronged Jackie, and at the same time attempts to manipulate him. And you eat hearts from fallen enemies in this game. It's awe...

Fifa has finally caught up with PES 0

Fifa 07 for X360 was supposed to revolutionize the franchise with an all new ball physics system. However, the EA focused too much on creating this new physics system, and forgot about the other components to the game, such as tricks and a decent passing system. Even Fifa's main selling point compared to PES; lots of liscenses of players and teams, was forgotten as the game only featured 5 leagues. However, Fifa 08 is looking to fix all those complaints.Fifa 08 plays a great game of football on ...
