who needs jedi 0

Star Wars Battlefront is the works of genius. This game is a multi player juggernaut. Including many worlds of the Star Wars universe, each with at least two battle fields, there is much to love. The graphics are just stunning, giving you the sense of the epic battle. It handles great in first or third person. The musical score is of course great (hey its john williams for christ's sake). The sounds are right on with what you would expect. Single player is lacking with seemingly the same as a mu...

going commando 0

Star wars has had first person. Its had lightsabers. Its had massive epic battles. Now it is going into uncharted waters with squad based play. Lucas arts is just pwning newbs left and right. This game is another ground breaker for the universe created by George Lucas. The squad, even though clones, are quite different. You got your demolitions, sniper, computer guy, and leader. Although you and everyone can do every single job. Graphics are stunning, especially with how your visor shows oil or ...

an actual good party game 0

Rayman was not one of my first choices for a great experience on the Wii. With that being said it was surprisingly good. Rayman begins with your friends being captured by some really wigged out rabbits. Along with them you get captured and placed in a sort of coliseum where you are forced to participate in a bunch of many games. The first four are actual mini games, and the main game is unlocked after completing three of them. The games are a lot of fun and don't get repetitive. It uses the wii ...

All hype 0

Red Steel was the game i was most looking forward to for the Wii. It seemed to have all i wanted, first person shooter action and swordplay. This all looks good on paper, but isn't done very well in the game. You begin the story as bodyguard named Scott who is going to marry a yakuza boss' daughter. She gets kidnapped and you go out on your quest to find her. During this quest you will encounter people who will shoot at you and challenge you to duels. I understand the Japanese "honor" going on w...

Something a little more hardcore? 0

Prince of Persia is not a revolutionary game by any means. It does what fans of the franchise would expect and delivers good gameplay with good puzzle play. Prince of Persia is graphically acceptable. It doesn't look as good as Twilight Princess, but the graphics are much more forgiveable than that of Red Steel. The sounds and music is what you would expect from the series. Great musical score that sets the mood. The wii controls stay out of the way, but sometimes the controls don't respond quic...

Bungie does it again 0

I was very critical about halo 3 after the gameplay trailers. I thought that this would be a weak finish that would copy the foundation of halo 2. I was wrong. This game completely removes itself from the other iterations of the series. Halo 3 of course begins where halo 2 left off. Fighting your way through the remainder of covenant forces (minus the rebelling elites) you come across some of the most memorable sequences of gameplay that has ever existed. The musical score does change somewhat,...

Another great addition to the mario franchise 0

Super paper Mario does exactly what it intends. It gives gamers a game that is not for parties and not for for your grandparents. This game is one of the better ones out there for Wii. The gameplay is reminiscent of old school Mario. Using bowser, peach, luigi, and mario, you will go through multiple worlds in order to save them all. You will go through them to attain pure hearts that will be used to defeat the evil Count Bleck. Without giving away spoilers i will say that the plot is one of the...

A series going a little stale 0

I have been an obsessive guitar hero fan since the first release. This iteration of the series has the best track list of every guitar hero to day. Online play is fun and does not lag, but for some odd reason the game seems to slowdown at times during play. The wireless controller is great. Except for the fact that it seems to have a connection problem. Maybe this is due to the new detachable neck feature, but i have found 2 guitars where buttons would randomly stop working. This is unacceptable...

another sonic game forgotten 0

The first Wii Sonic game sounds good on paper. You tilt the remote to move sonic and shake it to make sonic attack. Graphics are on par with the system and the story is actually descent. I feel it is where the gameplay dulls this game down. You only control sonic moving back and side to side. The game also doesn't respond to well. The skill rings are a nice rpg style touch to sonic that allows you to boost and attract rings. The music is embarassing. The same song plays in the menu, and the in g...

Addictive at first 0

This game is a good port from its arcade predecessor. The game has the hilarious voice acting and a retro feel to it. One of the worst things about this game is the length. All of the missions can be beaten in about 30 minutes. The wii works great although i would rather have it where you shoot on the outside of the screen to reload. The nunchuck and zapper is really useless although if you already have a zapper I could see how it would add to the realism. The game has no online play, but there...

best sim boxing game ever 0

I have been a fan of fight night since the first game. With the introduction of total punch control I could not imagine how it could be any better. EA really shows its talent by making this great game. Fight night allows you to create a character or go through a legends' career. The gameplay is excellent as the game rids itself of the hud, but you can change that in the options menu. Health and stamina is easily observed through the sounds and looks of the fighter. The graphics are amazing and i...

viva pinata 0

Viva Pinata is a good start for rare. The graphics are great. Starting out you will find yourself emerged in the garden. The amount of things you can do is great, but micromanaging becomes a problem. When a numerous amount of pinatas get in the garden, it gets cumbersome to take care of every single things that is going on. Goals aren't really expressed clearly. Graphics are great showing the pinatas and environments. The first few hours our fun, but after you do the "romance dance" so many tim...

Doesn't stray far from its roots 0

Dead or alive does what it does best and continues to give us more of what we would come to expect from team ninja. The graphics are a great start for the xbox software launch and the game handles real well. The sounds are great, giving you an intense feeling of play. The music is relevant to the stages, but i feel as if it doesn't mix with the fast paced of the actual gameplay. The online is revolutionary in its ranking system and the fact that you gain money as well to buy more stuff for your ...

Just amazing 0

I started playing the call of duty series with finest hour. This game had a great single player, but the multi player was somewhat lacking as constant camping toned down the action. Slowly the call of duty series has kept delivering what it started by only tweaking small things in its game. This time around call of duty is perhaps one of the best shooters out. This game can stand its own against the likes of Rainbow 6 and Halo 3. The campaign is jam packed with moments where your jaw will drop a...

amazing experience 0

Gears of war a very original game. You play as Marcus Fenix. The story is very fast paced and interesting. You will find many feeling of overwhelming power as you maul through masses of enemies. The campaign leaves you room for a sequel. This story is carried with great support for online co-op. This extends the replay value to great extent as you and a friend can go through the war together. The multi player is fun, but the only complaint i have is that the weapons seem a bit to unbalanced. All...

Best in the tenkaichi series 0

I have been a fan of dragonball Z since i can remember. I have played all games in the series with an addiction. I was totally looking forward to this years addition as they claim to have online play, which would work great with since it was so hard to play in split-screen from the behind the back view. They changed the game from a sad Wii port to something actually made for the console by actually mimicking motions instead of only pointing in a certain direction. This is great. The graphics and...

Not a selling point for the 360 0

The long awaited sequel to perfect dark for the N64 does not live up to the hype that it was given by people pulling for rare and Microsoft. Perfect dark starts off by giving you graphics that mimic those of the late current generation. Honestly Halo 2 looks better than this. The sound also doesn't seem to match up with the action at times and the the action really isn't that fun. You have a ton of weapons but non of them seem fun. Using cover seems more of a hassle than any as it doesn't even c...

Mario games dont get much better 0

Super Mario Galaxy had the potential to just copy Mario Sunshine or Mario 64. This would have a made a good game for most gamers and a great one for avid Mario fans. The weird thing is Nintendo made an incredibly new sequel. This is perhaps the best game in 2007 and this was no lackluster year. There is absolutely nothing you can complain about with this game. The graphics are some of the best we may ever see on the Wii for awhile. It just doesn't hit you with great modernization of our favorite...

A great original 0

First of all let me say that assassins creed is a great game. You are an ex assassin whose memory is being tapped into from his ancestors which just happened to be assassins as well. Without giving to many plot points away this game plays on a lot of very significant historical events. If any gamer friends you have are deeply religious and not open minded they may want to overlook this lol. The graphics on this game are excellent. The environment really takes a great part in the game as you clim...

A great tactical shooter 0

Move over Ghost Recon because the best tactical shooter to date has just released. Rainbow six doesn't not reinvent the wheel, but takes all of the parts of shooting games that are liked and turn it into a polished high quality experience. The game starts in Mexico where you are reconing possible terrorist activity and guess what? We actually have a storyline with the terrorist. I will avoid spoilers, but the storyline is just riveting and we actually have links with the soldiers and the terrori...

push button kill stuff 0

Dynasty Warriors is a franchise that has been beaten against peoples skulls with the lackluster release of the same gameplay with barely noticeable tweaks. This game is no exception. Dynasty warriors plays much like every other dynasty warriors game. You have a block, an attack, charge attack, and a musou attack. You run through hordes of armies killing heros and officers along the way based on the Romance of the Three Kingdoms novels. You still have your basic musou, free, and challenge modes ...

Get balls and blow up stuff 0

Dragonball z is a franchise that keeps being put in different iterations for all sorts of fans to enjoy. Burst limit goes back to that first budokai feel in order to highlight what dragonball z does and that is the awesome battles. Burst Limit has characters that end with the cell saga. This is sad considering the last budokai had countless characters that were all fun to play. The game has a story mode called Z Chronicles which highlights the main battles and wraps it up at the ending giving t...

Just amazing 0

Bioshock leads you into the a mysterious under water city named rapture. Rapture seems to have its fair share of issues as everyone seems to be just insane. The world is controlled by adam which makes plasmids that give you magic like power through the science of genetics. Gameplay is from a 1st person perspective. You really get that eerie feel that there is a ton of insane baddies out to get you, and that could be no truer. You have a wide array of weapons to constantly choose from. You can s...

A sad attempt at and rpg 0

Enchanted arms is a story about a boy named Atsuma who has an arm that uses negative magic energy. It takes place in a world of magic but has cities with names you might recognize. The game is set up as you play a maximum of 4 players in a battle and you can have golems with you as well. Golems are basically like Pokemon. Except you build them instead of catching them. They fight and gain experience like a regular character except they are not part of the story, except for the Devil Golems. Devi...

A quality western game 0

Gun is a good game with a lot of potential. Some good ideas were presented and it makes me want a revamped sequel. The graphics are not as good as they could be for the 360. They seem to only be a port. The music is so great that you will often just find yourself just riding to the music as you would see in an old west movie. The story line is okay. The side missions don't really tie into the story and the leveling up is okay, but not completely necessary. The Shops work great as upgrading your ...

A solid Arcade shooter 0

Aegis wing is done by interns working for microsoft. You can tell that these guys love what they do. There isn't much story for this game, but it is basically made to throw you in and give you a fast paced arcade experience. It has 2-D gameplay with 3-D backgrounds. The game blends nicely and online co-op is fun to play. Achievements are typical and not impossible. Music does sometimes get repetitive, so you may want to use your own. All in all this game is worth trying out and if you need a bre...

Move over Guitar Hero 0

At first glance Rock Band looks like an overwhelming experience that we could only have imagined possible. It seems insane for one console game be able to have drums, guitar, karaoke, and bass all in one. Rock band has a soundtrack that can match any Guitar Hero soundtrack and has new songs to download each week. The songs all sound great, even though you can tell if a song has a cover, but it perfectly fine if you sacrifice the original to be able to play that song four different ways. Karaoke ...

Excellent co-op 0

Army of Two sets you in a modern time period and gives you missions that are sort of based on world events. The main characters are Rios and Salem. The storyline between these two is given in great context. They are former rangers turned mercenaries and are comical throughout a lot of the game. The boss fights are not very epic considering that we don't actually get a story on each boss. All we are told is that they are terrorists and what they have that justifies us killing them. Apart from tha...

Same old hack and slash 0

99 nights is a refreshing awakening from the ever repetitive Dyanasty Warriors, at least thats what you think the first 20 minutes into the game. After you get half way through playing with the first character you feel as if you have taken in all the game has to offer. The Story takes place in some sort of medevial realm that includes elves, goblins, and orcs. The storyline is that of a cheesy sci-fi movie in that it gives characters a type of sterotypcial attitude and doesn't get real deep with...

More in depth than wii boxing? 0

For those of us who ponder about the good ol days of super punch out and wish nintendo would follow up on the awesome game, this is not the game we were waiting for. The story is not about one person, but an entire gym located in Japan. You go throgh the story by starting out as a rookie. You would thing you would stay with this character and watch him advance through the ranks and learn more about him, but as soon as you win a couple of tournament titles you are thrown into of flurry of boxer...

Rock on! 0

With the launch of the XBOX 360, Microsoft has been searching for the first game to actually bring a lot of people to it's new console. The port of Guitar Hero II is a good start. Guitar hero II in most respects is no different than its playstation counterpart. They are basically the same game. Although those that haven't yet got GH2 and have a 360 you should really pick this game up. As it fixes the hammer on pull off system and contains bonus tracks that the playstation 2 doesn't have.

There are multiple characters from different games so you'll find someone you like. Subspace Emissary is an excellent addition to the traditional arcade fighting ladders. There are tons of trophies and bonuses to unlock and will keep you busy for quite some time. The graphics are revamped from old mele...

Battle under the sea 0

Undertow really came out from underneath a crowd of popular XBox live arcade games. With old school hits like pac-man and street fighter, its difficult to see original games get much exposure. If you looking for an inexpensive fun game, look no further. Undertow takes you into an ocean world that has 3 races and 4 simliar classes for each one. The story is quite lenghty and has full 3-d cutscenes and may actually entice someone with a story driven nature. Of course as with many arcade titles its...

One great epic 0

Mass effect to me is what would happen if gears of war and KOTOR somehow mated and had a video game baby. Seriously though this game is one of the best rpgs of 2007. The voice acting and conversations really keep you into the game. The answers are somewhat easily chosen since there are neutral, good, and negative answers. The graphics are great as the sci-fi theme is shown with characters bright constumes and bright armor that shines. The environment looks great and really gives you the sense th...

Through playing Conan i often wondered what the game would be like without the exist of God of War. It certainly tries to set itself of in such a manner as to which you can't help asking that question. However once you get bast this barrier of hating unoriginal gameplay, you'll find that Conan is actually a fun little game Conan begins as he opens a tomb and releases the black plague amongst the world. While doing this he loses his armor and must go back and retrieve it. He meets a young warrio...

Mario Kart is a game made as a graceful alternative to those that can't handle or don't want to handle the real simulation driving genre. In this sense Mario Kart does just that and gives us fun game play with a few new features along with the basic formula fans have loved for years. Mario Kart allows a multitude of game play options as you can use, classic controller, gamecube controller, wii remote, wii remote with nun chuck, or the wii wheel.

The City and environment looks colorful and vibrant and doesn't give you a generic view of the place your, in and allows you to manuever quite easily. The character models look good, with the st...

Orange Box is released to let us (the consumer) know that not all companies are just here to sap the life out of your wallet.

Stranglehold attempts to remove itself from the pack as a new original ip in the world of 3rd person shooters. The game is directed by John Woo and includes such talents as Chow Yun-Fat. Even with these great names in theater this game has just enough flaws to keep it out of reach of becoming a "blockbuster" title. The game uses the typical run and gun gameplay.
