Warrior Within could've—no, should've—been so much better 0

Ubisoft proved that it was serious about bringing the Prince of Persia series back in full force when it released The Sands of Time in 2003. The game had inventive level design, solid combat mechanics, and best of all a genuine storybook feel that made it something really special. For the first time in a long time, here was an action game that not only had great action, but a story and characters that gamers actually cared about. A year later Ubisoft released the sequel, Warrior Within, and game...

Charm doesn't quite outweigh its blatant simiplicity 0

Since its release in 2001, Ico has become a cult classic. Used copies can't stay on the shelves, and as a result this early PS2 game has become quite rare. But even though Ico has found its niche, there's a reason why it never was able to achieve substantial commercial success. You see, Ico's worth playing to experience the realized art style and characters, but at this point in 2008, or even back in 2001 for that matter, the gameplay is way too simple to satisfy most gamers.The camera focuses o...

Ambitious 0

Games based on movies rarely hit the mark. Developers are rushed to meet strict movie release deadlines, and on top of that it's difficult to translate a two-hour movie into a longer interactive adventure. By basing Republic Commando on the entire Star Wars prequel trilogy, Lucas Arts had the freedom of adhering to no movie in particular, and created an experience that's enjoyable regardless of your knowledge of the films. The result is a relentlessly entertaining shooter based in the Star Wars ...

Captures the frantic action of World War II better than most 0

No game since the original Call of Duty has been able to capture the essence of the genre quite like it. The second game in the series, and Call of Duty's debut on consoles, follows in the footsteps of its predecessor by providing a campaign brimming with intense gun combat and a fully featured fast-paced online multi-player mode. Although Call of Duty 2 may not have much of a narrative, its exciting action and addictive multi-player will keep you interested one way or the other.You'll start the...

A Life of Crime 0

Grand Theft Auto III set the gaming world on fire when it came out in late 2001. It was hitherto one of the most violent and mature games ever released while creating an entirely new genre, the sandbox. All these years later,  it's still clear why this was a classic in the first place, but the dated presentation and some pacing issues make it feel slightly unpolished. As a result, GTA III doesn't feel quite as fresh as it did the day it came out, but it's still a whole lot of fun.In Grand Theft ...
