First of all, Shift seems really unpolished. I really think Shift is the latest victim of rushed releases as a result of a down turn in game sales. What's here is good and there are hints of a really great arcade/semi-realistic racer under the unpolished exterior. The Good: Not your usual NFS game, in a good wayLots of tracks, lots of modes to explore Progression system is a clever additionGraphics are respectable for a multi-platform title Fun and addictive gameplayThe Sad: Bizarrely omitted c...
This is what happens when profit focused management stifles creative developers. The Force Unleashed has moments of fun but is so weighed down with a feeling of rushed, poor, uninspired design and polish that you will probably start crying (at least on the inside).

This is pretty much what I felt about Terminator: Salvation. The story is terrible, the game mechanics buggy, the action repetitive... yet there's something that works about this game that just might keep you playing for its whole 5 hours of playtime. And one major bonus.....
I really loved Uncharted: Drake's Fortune. I had none of the complaint of length or lack of replay value that I heard from others. Drake's Fortune was funny, breath-taking-ly beautiful and just a whole lot of fun. In spite of my high praise for the first Uncharted and my hugely inflated expectations for the second the wizards at Naughty Dog managed to completely surprise and delight me in every inch of this game. The Great: You get to play the most astounding cinematic moments ever in a vide...
