Rango: Better Than Expected, But Over Too Soon 0

 Taken from my site :  Click Here For Source Most people will never play Rango: The Video game, assuming it to be nothing more than a lame cash-in trying to piggyback a successful film.  To be fair, it's not like there aren't a ton of examples to justify the negativity, but people forget that it's not always bad. Kung Fu Panda, Disney's Aladdin, Spider-Man 2 and Goldeneye 007 are prime examples of titles that delivered fun iterations on their respective franchises. Games like Chronicles o...

It's good to be El Presidente!! 0

Follow us on Twitter:  http://twitter.com/systemaddicted   Review taken from: www.thesystemaddicts.com   TROPICO 3 REVIEW PC & 360 Your Paradise City building games have long had staunch, loyal supporters and those that don’t understand them or just choose hate them, few of these games encapsulate that as much as Tropico 3. This god playing city builder lets you be El Presidente, ruler of tropical Caribbean islands during the Cold War, and asks you to build prosperous lands while naviga...

Worth it, If You Can Get Past Some Issues 0

   http://numbthumb.wordpress.com/ http://twitter.com/systemaddicted METRO 2033 REVIEW PC & XBOX 360 Metro 2033 is a new game by 4A Games based on the book of the same name, written by Russian author Dmitry Glukhovsky.  I’ll have to admit up front that I have not read the book but, from my time with the game alone, will now be looking to add it to my pile for a read. Doing some research I found that the novel tells a similar story of those living in the metro system of Russia, post nuc...

Grapple Love 0

  https://twitter.com/systemaddicted   JUST CAUSE 2 REVIEW PS3 & 360 Just Cause was an open world game that didn’t offer a lot in the way of variety but showed a glimpse, at times, of a truly exciting game that got lost among technical issues and a lack of depth. If you were a fan of the game you probably found yourself making excuses at one time or another, reasoning that it was better than the average sandbox game and had a real style of its own. In retrospect, we can see now that A...

Sometimes Change is Good. 0

http://www.thesystemaddicts.com/ http://twitter.com/systemaddicted Splinter Cell: Conviction Review 360, PS3 Purist may want to reconsider, for without an open mind and willingness to accept something different from a rather storied franchise you’ll miss out on one of the most polished and exquisitely transacted action games in years. Splinter Cell: Conviction doesn’t recapitulate Sam Fischer’s old form of probing path finding and doesn’t penalize or reward meticulous trial and error. Inst...

Kratos' Triumph 0

   Review taken from blog and the upcoming below from the upcoming site; www.thesystemaddicts.com http://numbthumb.wordpress.com/2010/03/23/god-of-war-3-review/ GOD OF WAR III REVIEW PS3 God of War III needs no introduction if you own a PS3, and I’ll wager a guess it doesn’t need much of one even if you don’t. It seems like since the PS3 was announced everyone, their dog, and their dog’s fleas have been waiting for this game, and for the most part the wait was worth it. There’s some ne...

It Blows Up Real Good 0

 http://numbthumb.wordpress.com/2010/03/06/battlefield-bad-company-2-review/    BATTLEFIELD: BAD COMPANY 2 REVIEW 360 & PS3 Digital Illustrations CE launched a warning shot two years ago with Battlefield Bad Company. They proved that the series, known largely for its excellent online battles, could provide a fresh take on single player war games and hold its own against the competition. The second game gets more serious, not only refining the online component to be a true standout and viabl...

Heavy Rain, Light Writing 0

Reviews taken from my blog at:  http://numbthumb.wordpress.com/2010/02/27/heavy-rain-review/ HEAVY RAIN REVIEW PS3 Quantic Dream is a developer you want to root for. They do things differently; they take risks that others wouldn’t dream of selling to their investors, but is it worth it? Heavy Rain, dubbed as interactive drama, is much Indigo Prophecy before it (Fahrenheit outside North America), less game than playable movie. It doesn’t always mean you’ll be riveted, unless brushing your teeth ...

An Utterly Uninspired AVP 0

  http://numbthumb.wordpress.com/2010/02/24/aliens-vs-predator-review/ ALIENS vs. PREDATOR REVIEW ALIENS VS PREDATOR REVIEW 360 & PS3 Aliens vs. Predator has always been a pretty solid idea on paper, bridging two of the best science fiction action franchises ever by intertwining their stories with some sound back story. The original Aliens v Predator for the Jaguar was an atmospheric gem in 1994, which proved the two could be combined for great effect. The 1999 PC follow-up did nothing t...

A not so scortching good time 0

Review Taken From:  http://numbthumb.wordpress.com/2010/02/18/dantes-inferno-review/ DANTES INFERNO REVIEW DANTE’S INFERNO REVIEW PS3 & 360 You might think it’s strange to base a game on a poem, but actually I think a lot of the old epic’s are pregnant with legends just perfect for tradition gaming fare. These are often massive tales of vicious battles, or independent hero’s saving villages. There’s blood, woman, philosophy, boatloads of booze, seedy politics, backstabbing, dragons and ...

The Return to Rature 0

Review Taken from:  http://numbthumb.wordpress.com/2010/02/18/bioshock-2-review/    BIOSHOCK 2 REVIEW XBOX 360, PS# & PC If you thought seriously that Bioshock 2 would follow up its predecessor and surpass it on all fronts, then I’d say we had very different impressions about the original. You can’t top that type of game. The first time you see Rapture through a Bathysphere window is something that can’t be replicated. Exploring it with fresh eyes is a unique and untouchable experience...

Better than you'd expect, which isn't saying all to much. 0

 Original Review At:  http://numbthumb.wordpress.com/  VANCOUVER 2010 Review(360 & PS3) The Olympics haven’t seen a good game tie in since Nintendo had that pad you could run on, in fact, it’s so long ago I’m not even certain that was a real Olympic tie-in. Twenty years is a long time, but with games like Beijing Olympics it’s not a surprise people would rather ignore these titles. You’ll be surprised then to learn that Vancouver 2010 suceeds where that game and many others failed so m...

An Apt Title for a Game Missing a Lot 0

DARK VOID REVIEW Posted by numbthumb originally at:  http://numbthumb.wordpress.com/ DARK VOID REVIEW (360, PS3 & PC) The video game industry currently finds itself amidst a transitional period where the scope of appeal has been opened up for a more casual market, young and old. But without a doubt developers still know that the hardcore demographic, those males between the age of 15 and 27, are the ones that can be relied on to perpetually throw money into new software for their system...

Army of Two Steps Forward, One Step Back 0

 Army of Two: The 40 Day Review Xbox 360, PS3  Review Taken From My Blog:   http://numbthumb.wordpress.com/   Elliot Salem and Tyson Rios were introduced to us in 2008 as two indestructible best friends who had a dark slanted humor, a penchant for destruction, no qualms whatsoever in showing off their ‘bro-ness’ and who happened to be two Private Military Contractors. While the first Army of Two danced around some very real and very serious elements of war, it also managed to be a rather fun  an...

Stoked: Big Air Edition Review 0

 http://numbthumb.wordpress.com/2010/01/08/stoked-big-air-edition-review/   Stoked Big Air Edition Review XBOX 360 The original stoked sold just around 60,000 copies if VgChartz is to be trusted, and that’s not hard to believe given the lack of marketing and distribution. The developers at Bongfish understandably wanted to get a little more out of their product so they’ve released Stoked Big Air Edition in hopes of finding their way into gamer’s homes. Somebody should probably tell Destineer th...

The Saboteur: Some notes are out of key in this swansong. 0

 The Saboteur Review (360, PS3, PC) Taken from my blog:  http://numbthumb.wordpress.com  With the massive layoffs that hit Electronic Arts in November the company confirmed that Pandemic studio’s is no longer. While a small handful of the studios force was absorbed to offer support you can call The Saboteur their swan song. It’s not a bad note to go out on, but it’s a bitter pill for a crew that obviously had some unique and outright fun ideas. The Saboteur pits you against Nazi forces that hav...

James Cameron’s Avatar: The Game Review 0

 James Cameron’s Avatar: The Game Review Xbox 360, PS3 Say what you want about game tie-ins to movie franchises, and so long as it’s negative you’d likely be right.  If Avatar: The Movie is supposed to revolutionize the way we see films then coming out with this game two weeks before release doesn’t keep with the standard of change. It’s hard not to award points for certain aspects of the game, mind you, but too much holds this back from escaping the very average. You play as Abel Ryder, an RDA ...

Assassins Creed II Review 0

 Assassin's Creed II Review Two years ago it seemed a lot of people had to lob some justification in front of their enjoyment out of Assassin's Creed, or harsh criticism for their contempt with the game. Neither side was necessarily wrong. The game laid out a heady story,  catapulted parkour as a genre mainstay, and blended elements of action and stealth to appease plenty of fans. It was also terribly bogged down by poor pacing, repetitive side missions and utterly inept AI to contend with, so ...

Fairytale Fights Review 0

 Fairytale Fights Review It’s understandable when a game comes out with lowered expectations, a meaningless romp meant only to kill a couple hours with mindless fun. There’s nothing wrong with that, in fact, entire sections of the industry pride themselves on doing nothing but budget titles and doing them fairly well. The thing with it is, they need to know when they’re a budget title and sell themselves as such. Fairytale Fights developer, Playlogic, obviously didn’t get the memo, because...

Brtual Legend Review -- All Metal, No Glam! 0

Brutal Legend Review BRUTAL LEGEND REVIEW XBOX 360, PS3 There are not a lot of times when you can say there’s no good comparison to a game. If media ages, then gaming is probably in its teens, or at least coming up to it, and there’s been sufficient enough time to feel out most genres in gaming. Brutal Legend isn’t a new genre, per se, but it’s highly original in its own right. Following Psychonauts and Grim Fandango is no easy task, and Tim Schafer may not exceed expectations, but he does ...

Borderlands Review 0

  Borderlands Review PS3, Xbox 360, PC There’s an insatiable urge in all of us to quantify our leisurely enjoyment with some type of trophy or reward. Gaming is not averse to this line of thinking, it embraces it and pushes it onto us like some addictive chemical found in most foods we scarf down while playing ‘just one more level’. Achievements, trophies, and even the odd stamp system of the Wii are just some of the ways that console makers have tried to give us some type of showing for our ga...

Ratchet & Clank Future: A Crack In Time 0

  Insomniac Games has managed to deliver a great deal of quality to the Playstation 3, and oddly they do so relatively under the radar. Resistance is clearly a big title to Sony, and they promote the heck out of it, luckily it’s also a quality series. But I’d argue that Ratchet & Clank is a far superior franchise, which makes me wonder why it never seems to get the hype it deserves. But lack of expectation can do wonders for a game when you find one you don’t expect to be good. That happene...

Dirt 2 0

 While I’m not the biggest racing fan in the world, I still always enjoy a good racing title so long as it manages to keep the fun in tact without getting too hardcore on me. That’s an admission that full-blown racing sims are iffy to me, that while I appreciate the technical skill and presentation that usually goes along with those games I find it hard to enjoy myself from start to finish. The Dirt series may be less and less full blown simulation though and more geared towards a casual audienc...

Demon's Souls Review 0

 Demon’s Souls is a rare game, a decidedly unwavering and punishing challenge from the onset that never feels cheap nor short on reward. It’s an RPG out of Japan, but a lot of elements actually make me look at it with a Western Action RPG skew. You choose a character from one of many classes and get tossed into a tutorial that does an amazing job at preparing you just for what you’re about to face. Which is death. Perhaps lots of it. I’d try to tell you about story, but beyond collecting demon’s...
