Despite It's Repetitiveness, Deathspank Is Still Quite a Fun Game 0

  Perhaps the last two games you would expect to hear in the same sentence are Blizzard's Diablo franchise and Telltale's Monkey Island series. Ron Gilbert and Hothead games have combined these two game types into one, and it is called Deathspank. Deathspank, you say? Yes, Deathspank, the game is named after ultra-ridiculous...

A Fantastic Aerial Combat Game From An Unexpected License 0

  Snoopy Flying Ace is one of the most pleasantly surprising games in recent memory. First off, it is of a genre that I'm not a huge fan of, aerial-combat games. Whether they're aerial-only, or an aerial section of a larger game, I never seem to enjoy them. Second, the license is shocking. Never would I have guessed that the game to bring me to this genre would be attached to the Peanuts license, coming from a developer that I've never eve...

It Has What You Would Expect From MGS, But With One Fatal Flaw 0

  Warning: This Review Contains Spoilers from MGS3. The Spoiler is marked with underlining and bold. Ever since the PSP launched big budgets, AAA games that we were used to seeing and playing on our home consoles have been trying to make their way onto Sony's portable system. Games such as God of War: Chains of Olympus, Gra...

A Much Better, But Still Flawed, Successor To Indigo Prophecy 0

   Note: This Review Will Contain Minor Plot Spoilers From Heavy Rain, But Nothing From Later In The Game  Quantic Dream released Indigo Prophecy back in 2005, and while the game was very unique and fresh, it still had many flaws. Luckily, Quantic Dream has fixed most of the issues present in Indigo Prophecy with there brand new title, Heavy Rain, which is built on the same general concept and design as their last game. This concept being, of course, the idea that story is the most impor...

Great Game Built On a Great Concept Brougt Down By a Few Mistakes 0

Warning: This Review Contains Some Early Plot Point Spoilers From Indigo Prophecy, But Nothing from Later in the Game. The Section With Spoilers Has Been Marked.  Indigo Prophecy is a game for few people. I suppose most "gamers" will like it, but if an average Joe come and picks it up he'll probably be setting it down rather quickly. The game's premise is one of the best ever, period. The opening cutscene will intrigue you so much you'll think you'll want to keep playin...

Not Much Of What It Does Is New But It's All Done Well 0

This Review May Contain Spoilers From The Previous Ratchet and Clank Games and Early Plot Points From A Crack In TimeThe Ratchet and Clank series has been around for quiet a long time. It was born on the PS2 and has been through 5 or 6 games and a few spin offs. The formula of the franchise hasn't been altered much from game to game and that hasn't changed much in this installment of the long running series. If you've played any other game in the series you probably know what to expect from thi...

ND's First PS3 Game Isn't a Masterpiece But It Doesn't Dissapoint 0

What do you get when you combine Gears of War,  Indiana Jones, and Tomb Raider? Uncharted: Drake's Fortune. What a great fusion of games, right? While this combination hasn't quite been perfected by Naughty Dog it's definitely something to build on, and it's certainly one of the funnest action-adventure games I've played.  You play as Nathan Drake, a treasure-seeking decedent of Sir Francis Drake himself. At the start of the game him and Elena Fisher, a new reporter just trying to g...

Batman Finally Gets What He Deserves: A Kickass Game 0

       This Review May Contain Spoilers (such as the names of villians).   "More times than not, when a company doesn't have a movie tie-in, or some famous license to follow they can create more inventive and all around better things than if they did have some license to follow."    That was the first line in my inFamous review. It has been true since the NES days that licened/movie games just don't hold up to their unlicenesed counterparts. Occasionally you will get a really good licened game...

It's A Step Up From the Original, But is That Enough? 0

  The Wii has a giant list of different of controllers and periphals that have been released for it, and Wii MotionPlus is no exception. I could be wrong, but I'm betting that if Nintendo wanted the Wiimote to be like this when it the Wii was first shipped, they could have. But they didn't want to because they could make $20 off of one of these dumb things by making the Wiimote a piece of crap from the start.  The thing about Wii Sports Resort that you need to understand is that it's really o...

Is Becoming a "Peggle Grand Master" Worth the Time? 0

Peggle is a game that can really be played by anyone who is given a mouse, gamepad, or iphone. The reason is because there are not a whole lot of people in this world who hasn't seen one of the Price is Right's most famous games, Plinko. No, the Price is Right did not invent this game concept, but it's certainly the one thing that has made the idea so mainstream and popular.   Peggle follows that same concept, originally started by Pachinko. Every level in Peggle has a different layout of pegs, ...

An Interesting Take on the Tower Defense Genre 0

Plants vs. Zombies is yet another game from PopCap (mostly known for Peggle). PopCap is pro at coming up with a extremely simple idea, and somehow making it so complex and seemlessly addictive at the same time. A game that can be played by an 8 year old, but easily has enough strategy for a teenager to dive into deep possibilities that the game has to offer when it begins to show that it can be a pain in the ass when it comes to difficulty. Plants vs. Zombies is that game.Plants vs. Zombies is a...

Great, Nostalgic Fun 0

We all (when I say all, I mean everyone) played Super Mario Bros. on the Nintendo Entertainment System. Needless to say, it was probably the most successful game of all time. So that means, if anyone picked up New Super Mario Bros. on the DS they would instantly know what they were doing. After a really long run of games that followed the same formula Super Mario World was eventually  the death of the 2D Mario games... until now. This game doesn't have a lot of fan service, it practically is fa...

Resident Evil On Rails... Isn't Very Fun.*Incomplete* 0

So, here's how I would like to start out my review for Resident Evil: The Umbrella Chronicles for the Wii. I am a huge Resident Evil fan. I've played probably every single (good) game in the series. Unfortunately, Umbrella Chronicles doesn't really fall into the category of good. I suppose it entirely possible that my extreme knowledge about Resident Evil as a franchise could've hurt my opinion of this game, but in the end, I wasn't having any fun with it.]In case you don't know yet, UC is not t...

Ratchet is as Fun as Ever. Just Shorter. 0

This Review Contains Spoilers for R&C: Tools of DestructionIf you decide to buy Ratchet and Clank: Quest for Booty, realize that it's only $15, thus the game doesn't need to be extremely long, extremely exciting, or extremely complex. The game is much simpler than 2007's Tools of Destruction, taking away much of the mechanics introduced in Ratchet's last adventure, taking away many of the weapons, and probably most importantly, taking away Clank.If your not all up to snuff on the latest Ratc...

A Phenomonal Unlicensed Super Hero Game 0

More times than not, when a company doesn't have a movie tie-in, or some famous license to follow they can create more inventive and all around better things than if they did have some license to follow. Thus how Sucker Punch has been able to make easily one of the best superhero games of all time.Though I realize I'm in the minority here, I thought Infamous' story was very entertaining, cool, and pretty easy to follow as well, considering some one like me who usually has problems keeping up wit...

Better than Halo and Counter-Strike. The Best Online FPS Ever. 0

Valve isn't a stranger to multiplayer based first person shooters. Years ago they released Counter-Strike, possibly one of the most successful PC games ever, and you could argue that Team Fortress 2 is a reskinned CS, but TF2 has so many improvements over Counter-Strike that if you were a fan of CS and you pick up TF2, you will more than likely not wanna ever go back to clunky old Counter-Strike. There are huge differences between CS and TF2 (aside from TF2 being leaps and bounds better than CS)...

A Simply Memorable, Emotional and Breathtaking New Experience. 0

After releasing one of the greatest early Playstation 2 games, ICO, Team ICO, has released yet another masterpiece for Sony's console, Shadow of the Colossus.Shadow of the Colossus takes a really new and fresh way of storytelling. You won't hear one English word spoken in the whole game. Instead, the creators created a fictional language for use in the game, and you'll have to read the subtitles. This fictional language will pretty much be spoken Dormin, the person you obey throughout the game. ...

You May Enjoy This Game. I, However, Hate It. 0

At the end of the day, a review is an opinion of the person writing the review, the reviewer. And the gameplay, features, graphics, and everything slammed onto the video game disc is what sways the reviewer's opinion one way or another. For Dead Space, everything the game had I didn't like. The production values and pretty graphics were nice, but the gameplay and survival horror aspect of the game, I found, unappealing. All this is coming from probably one of the biggest Resident Evil fanboys ou...

At First There's Some Fun to Be Had Here, But It Quickly Get Old. 0

Red, white, and black. Those are the three colors you will see when playing MadWorld. Red being all the blood and guts you're going to spill while playing this game. No, there aren't actually guts, because this is a Wii game, and the blood doesn't look like blood at all, which, if the game was on an HD console you would probably be shouting and hooting even more and the hilariously violent, but extremely unlikely, sins you commit as the main protagonist, Jack. Jack, a brutal badass motherf*cker ...

The Cake is a Lie. 0

Valve really do not do much to innovate any genre of games they make, at least in the gameplay aspect. Sure, they may have created the most innovative gaming service when they released Steam, and created a great way of story-telling in first person, but how the games they create play haven't really been something they've been too inventive with. Well, now, that Portal has been released, you can no longer say that. Portal is genius. Pure genius. If you jump into the game not knowing or have seen ...

It's Pong on Steroids. 0

Games that have a retro theme nowadays are becoming more and more common, and often, they are actually successful, like the case with Mega Man 9. Unlike Mega Man 9, this isn't an old and established franchise redone in pixelated graphics, but instead it's a "reimagination", as I like to call it, of Pong, the game that started it all. Like Mega Man 9, Bit.Trip Beat! is hard. Very hard. Basically, instead of going competitive, as Pong did, this is a single player (or cooperative) game, wherein ...

Explosions. That's What Mercenaries 2 Is All About. 0

Explosions aren't, at all, anything we haven't seen in a video game before. But I think Mercenaries 2 has probably some of the most memorable and greatest looking explosions we've ever seen. Huge structures just being leveled is definitely the games strongest suite. You'll blow the shit out of just normal houses, yes, but you'll also take down a whole oil refinery at one point, and you can also sink a huge ship into the water. It's prBOOM! etty satisfying, that's for sure. The completely destruc...

A Cheap $10 Cash in that Happens to be Packed in With a Wiimote 0

Wii Play is probably the first game you get for your Wii when you pick it up. This is because it is packed in wit the Wii mote. Now, I wouldn't call this game good by any stretch of the imagination, but it probably isn't bad enough to pass up for just a plain Wii remote. On the flip side, though, there are many other $10 video games out there that are much better than this one, such as various WiiWare, Playstation Network, and Xbox Live Arcade games, and even used PS2 or Xbox games. Wii Play c...

It's a Good Game. It Isn't a Resident Evil Game. 0

This Review Contains SpoilersWhen the Resident Evil franchise begun on the Playstation, it basically redefined what the survival horror genre meant. Hell, it created the survival horror genre. It was extremely innovative and everyone loved it. Then, that formula grew old, so Capcom reexamined the series and practically changed the what genre Resident Evil was known for. The series, then, totally redefined the third-person-shoulder-shooter, just as it had redefined the horror genre many many year...

Mario's Next Adventure is an Awesome One 0

After a pretty good, but not great GameCube Mario 3D platformer, Mario Sunshine, the newest Mario plaformer,Super Mario Galaxy, is the best Mario game since the legendary industry changing Super Mario 64.So, in Super Mario Galaxy your mission is to... what other than save Princess Peach. Galaxy's story isn't anything new by any stretch of the imagination. The story of the game follows the same formula and concept as most of the other Mario games in the past.

A Pretty Poor Sports Mini-Game Compilation 0

At the launch of the Wii, Mario was absent. Zelda was there. There was also Wii Sports. Now, Wii Sports isn't your average Nintendo title. It's not a game for the hardcore audience. It's for those casual gamers who just want to have fun. If you're looking for a game that you can delv many hours into, go pick up Zelda or Mario. Even though this game wasn't really made for people like us, we still have the right to bash it. Wii Sports is a collection of 5 sports games. All the sports games hav...

An Amazing Arcade-Shooter for the Hardcore 0

Super Stardust HD is a futuristic 3D Asteroids, basically. There's more than that though, but on paper, that's exactly what it is. You may notice, in the title, "...for the harcore". Why for the hardcore? Because this game is really, really hard. It doesn't go easy on you. When you first start the game and try out the first planet your gonna get your ass kicked, but then, once you get the hang of it you'll start to feel good, but then it'll get harder, and harder, and harder. It's pretty insan...

A Great Collection of Emulated Sega Games 0

Unlike Nintendo, who has went the route of overpricing there older retro games and selling them individually on the Virtual Console, Sega has decided to release yet another collection of old Sega-published games, and at a cheap price. The title, "Sonic's Ultimate Genesis Collection", is misleading, though. This isn't just Sonic games. There is a handful of Sonic games, though. Here is the list of the games in this Sega collection: Good ol' nostalgic Sonic the Hedgehog. Genesis -Alex Kidd in t...

The Best Music Rhymth Game Yet 0

Harmonix, Creators of Guitar Hero 1, 2, & Rock the 80s', have abandoned the GH series and have teamed up with MTV games and EA to expanding the music genre by adding drums and vocals to the mix. Now, the game is far superior in almost every single possible to any other console rhythm game to date. The game has on hell of a soundtrack. Of course, based on your taste in music, you're reaction to the game will differ, but with classic rock bands like the Rolling Stones, KISS, Aerosmith, and...

It's still basketball, and it's fun, but it's not great. 0

When NBA Live 09 was announced EA states that it would feature "Dynamic DNA". Now, if you don't know, what this is is basically an auto-update every day for the game, updating the players based on how there playing in the real world. For example, if someone gets traded, injured, or has started draining more threes than usual, then that's going to happen in the game, too. Atleast EA claims it's suppose to happen. This even changes things like if the player in the post wants to turn to his right o...

This game is so much more than just a platformer 0

Play. Create. Share. That is Sony's and Media Molecule's moto with this game. And, for the most part, all 3 of these parts of the game succeed in what they try to do. Play. So, while the game is based mostly on customization of the LBP community there is still about 50+ levels made by the Media Molecule crew. There are 5-6 "sections" that have 3 or 4 levels a piece. You'll go into a city, a desert, a frozen wilderness, and some other things. The levels all have a wide variety. Basically t...

A Great Game for New-Comers and Lovers of the Original 0

Bionic Commando Rearmed is a remake of the NES classic Bionic Commando. It is for XBLA and PSN, and let me just say it is probably worth $60, but it is only a mere $10. It is easily one of the best downloadable games out there, and it is worth every penny, and much much more. Yes, this game is a platformer, but fans of jump shoot and slide platformers may feel a little lost here. There is no jump button. Why? Because it would defeat the purpose of the game. You play Nathan Spencer, a guy who l...

Left 4 Dead is from Valve, the huge PC developer that create the Half-Life Series, Counterstrike, Portal, and Team Fortress. Valve doesn't put out a whole lot of games, but the ones they do put out are always quality games, and Left 4 Dead is another. It is available for the PC, through Steam or retail, and the Xbox 360. Now, of course, since it's Valve, the PC version is far superior, that is if you have a gaming PC to play it on. Left 4 Dead is a game set in a zombie apocalypse. Unlike most ...
