A competent racer, if nothing else 0

Out of the multitude of racing games that launched alongside the Xbox 360, Project Gotham Racing 3 was the best received and constantly used as an example of what the "next-generation of racers" would bring. Looking back at the game five years after its release it's easy to see why it garnered such praise. However, the game has not aged as well as some of the other launch titles, and while it is a competent racing game that can be entertaining at times, the game often feels like a "by the number...

A one-trick pony, but a damned good one 0

Need for Speed: Most Wanted was the ending of an era for the Need for Speed franchise, and the start of a new one. It blends elements from both the Hot Pursuit and Underground series to create what is perhaps the pinnacle of the longstanding franchise. It's not a perfect game by any stretch of the imagination, but the high-tension police chases combined with a solid racing mechanic makes Most Wanted an engaging racing game even by today's standards.  Most Wanted is essentially two different game...

Unique yet flawed 0

"Condemned: Criminal Origins" is a survival-horror game that was released as a launch title for the Xbox 360.

Charming and original, but falls short of being great 0

First impressions are everything, and Kameo fails miserably in this regard. The game throws you right into the first mission without any tutorial or instruction of any kind. Through the use of on-screen hints one is gradually able to figure out what the hell to do, but it's definitely an unpleasant experience to fudge your way through a surprisingly difficult first level. I was only five minutes into the game and I already wanted to turn it off. Needless to say, my opinion of Kameo at this point...

The Next Level of Music/Rhythm Games 0

Harmonix revitalized the music/rhythm genre with a little game called Guitar Hero. Now they have taken the next step with Rock Band. While Neversoft played it safe with Guitar Hero 3, barely changing the time tested formula, Harmonix took the extra step and added drums and singing to the mix.The result is an incredible co-op and solo experience. Having the ability to play with a full band is incredibly fun. At the same time, with three instruments to master, you will have a lot to do by yourself...
