343 Does Halo Just As Good (If Not Better) Than Bungie! 0

Halo 4 developed by 343 Industries and published by Microsoft is a slightly different take on the iconic series that fans everywhere have loved for years. 343 adds a new story arch and some gameplay tweaks to deliver a highly enjoyable game.For the record I am not one of the Halo super fans that have followed the series for years. I played a little bit of Halo 1 and Halo 3, but other than that Halo 4 was easily the game I sunk the most time into. At its core Halo 4 is very similar to every o...

Grindy 0

Forza Motorsport 5 developed by Turn 10 and published by Microsoft is the racing game equivalent to a grindy RPG. Forza features great visuals to go along with a game that simply lasts too long and is very slow to progress.The gameplay in Forza 5 is about almost as good as it is going to get for any racing game. The game does a great job of blending simulation gameplay with customizable options to allow even beginner players to have tons of fun. The player can adjust the difficulty sliders a...

MLB Power Pros 0

MLB Power Pros released in 2007 and developed by Konami is a cutesy baseball game that has had a long running franchise in japan. The game mixes baseball simulation with a lighter presentation into a solid but very shallow game.The core gameplay in Power Pros is good and fun to play. Pitching is executed by moving a baseball cursor around the home plate area while selecting what type of pitch you want to throw using the d-pad or control stick on the wii nunchuck and pressing A to throw the pitch...

House Of The Dead 2+3 0

House Of The Dead 2+3 returns released in 2009 and developed by sega is a Wii adaptation of the arcade/dreamcast/xbox light gun shooters bundled nicely into one package. I will review each separately and then rate the entire package.House Of The Dead 2The first thing I thought when I started up HOTD2 was, "damn this is pretty cheesy". The game is really cheesy, but it is pretty damn fun to play. Arcade light gun shooters typical don't see the best functionality on home consoles, but the Nintendo...

NBA 2k6 0

NBA 2k6 developed by Visual Concepts and published by 2k sports is a great blend of simulation basketball with fun gameplay. NBA 2k6 features great graphics for an early next gen game, and it has the vast content that early next gen sports games were lacking.The core gameplay in 2k6 is very good despite some flaws that it has. The essence to a sports game is solid gameplay, and NBA 2k6 exceeds those requirements. The game plays smooth and it really captures the style of basketball that is showca...

Why So Serious? 0

Gotham City Imposters developed by Monolith (Fear series) and released in early 2012 is a team based first person shooter that draws heavily on call of duty and team fortress. The combination of those two games seems like a winning formula, but nagging server issues keep the great gameplay in Gotham City Imposters at a minimum.The core gameplay to Gotham City Imposters is almost a direct adaptation of the two previously mentioned games. The game combines the gunplay and core of call of duty in a...

Its On Fire! 0

NBA Jam On Fire Edition released for download in 2011 by EA is the ultimate edition to the previously released NBA Jam remake. The On Fire edition features better gameplay and a different single player mode.NBA Jam is simply a blast to play. It has always been a tremendously fun and addicting game to play since its hayday in the mid 90's. EA did a great job of keeping the essence of NBA Jam while updating it slightly to bring it into the modern gaming era. The gameplay is really tight and the ga...

UMK III 0

Ultimate Mortal Kombat III or UMK III for short is an average fighting game that has a brutal difficulty, but also features good visuals and style. There are countless version of the game and the one I played for this review was the Xbox Live Arcade version released in 2006 for download. The game, of course, is developed by Midway. This version is a direct port of the arcade version with online play included. Because it is an arcade game the difficulty is really tough, and I had trouble even cle...

Virtua Tennis 3 0

Virtua Tennis 3 developed by Sega and released in 2007 is an above average tennis game, but it isn't the best next gen release in the genre. Virtua Tennis 3 features great graphics and presentation, but also has some repetitive gameplay and a grind heavy career mode.The core gameplay to VT3 is very fluid and arcade like. The game is fun to play, but any tennis game will have an amount of simplicity to it. Virtua Tennis 3 is just essentially pong with upgraded visuals, and the same can be said ab...

Get Paid! 0

Payday the Heist developed by Overkill Software and released in 2011 is a coop based first person shooter falling in the same same sub genre as Left For Dead. Payday essentially takes the gameplay elements from Left Four Dead and instead of a zombie setting, the game has a crime mob atmosphere.The gameplay in Payday isn't as fluid as Left For Dead. Payday isn't a melee based game and most of the time will be spent shooting waves of cops and swat teams with very limited weapons. The core shooting...

Disastrous 0

Undertow released in 2007 and developed by Chair Entertainment is a twin stick shooter set in an underwater environment. Undertow can be a fun game when it works, but there are many annoying problems that really hold the enjoyment with the game back.The core to Undertow is gameplay that we have seen before such as in the Battlefield Series. The game is essentially a group of conquest based missions where your team must capture and defend a majority of control points in each stage. The more contr...

Amazing Nostalgia 0

The Simpsons Arcade game originally released in 1991 by Konami is a wonderful beat em up that i use to always seek out when I went to the arcades in my youth days. Nowadays the game is much easier to find, and I have it for MAME and now on the playstation network. The Simpsons Arcade game in my opinion is one of the best games in the beat em up genre.The game follows the Simpsons family as they adventure through various locations in the city of Springfield while they are trying to get back Maggi...

N+ is a console flash game 0

I wanted to make something clear before I went into this review. I am not a fan of puzzle games and although I do enjoy platformers it will take a special game to win over my heart. With that said N+ is nothing more than a flash game re-developed slightly and put onto the xbox 360 arcade. N+ was developed by Slick Entertainment and published by Metanet Software (who originally did the flash version). The game is a puzzle platformer and overall it feels really average. The goal in each of N+'s 50...

Build Your Ultimate Kingdom! 0

Final Fantasy Crystal Chronicles My Life as King, or simply FFCCMLAK for a not so short abbreviation, developed by Square Enix was released in 2008 for Nintendo's WiiWare platform. At the time of release it was one of the first WiiWare games. Overall FFCCMLAK can be a fun and addicting game if you can get through some of the boredom associated with a kingdom building simulation game.The main premiss in FFCCMLAK is too rebuild your father's kingdom that was destroyed previously by the Dark Lord. ...

A good series entry 0

Call of Duty 2 published in 2005 and developed by Infinity Ward is a great entry in the Call of Duty Series. The game doesnt elevate itself to be the ascension of the FPS genre onto the next generation of consoles, but the game is rock solid.In Call of Duty 2 you will be playing as four different soldiers through three very unique campaigns. The Soviet missions take place in the snowy depths of Russia all the way through the epic march and recapturing of Stalingrad. The Soviet missions focus mos...

Demon's Souls developed in 2009 by From Software and published by Atlus is a challenging and realistic third person RPG that will wear on even the best gamers.Demon's Souls came out of nowhere in 2009 and was a strong game of the year contender, even winning the award at many media outlets. Any gamer looking for an extreme challenge will love Demon's Souls regardless if they play RPG's or not. Many people will simply give up on the game, but those that continue to play on will find one of the mo...

Streets Of Rage 2 0

Streets Of Rage 2 developed by Sega and released in 1992 for the genesis is a very good 16-bit beat em up and will provide fun when playing solo or coop. The game has received multiple releases since then on the sega genesis collection for example, but the version I played for review was the playstation network version.Streets of Rage 2 does a great job of executing the beat em up genre. It is pretty standard for the genre. The gameplay features side scrolling action, with various enemies and we...

BTTF Episodes 1-5 0

Back to the Future the Game, released throughout 2011 in various episodes by Telltale Games, is a great cinematic point and click adventure game that really captures the BTTF universe well.The gameplay in BTTF is standard point and click adventure fare, with various puzzles and lengthy dialogue cinematics throughout the game. Telltale has been the masters of the genre over the past however many years, and BTTF continues that trend by being a fun, yet simple game with tremendous story and charact...

NFL Blitz 0

NFL Blitz released in January this year, and developed by EA Sports is an ok remake of the original NFL Blitz with addicting online play.NFL Blitz on the Nintendo 64 and in the arcades was something that I played a lot of growing up, and this re-make captures that nostalgia while updating it to the modern era, but the game just doesn’t compare to the original. The meat and potatoes of this release are the ability to play that old school feeling blitz online. The online modes are great and have p...

Street Fighter II Hyper Fighting (ARC/XBLA) 0

Street Fighter II: Hyper Fighting is a port of the arcade version of the game on the Xbox Live Arcade. Hyper Fighting is the Street Fighter II we know and love with this version of the game playing much faster than the original Street Fighter II, and the game is also considerably more difficult. Hyper Fighting is a great game, but in my opinion it is one of the lesser versions of the Street Fighter II series. I prefer the standard Street Fighter II Champion Edition.The arcade mode in this game c...

TMNT TIT Re-Shelled 0

Video Review...Turtles In Time Re-Shelled, released in 2009 from ubisoft, is a remake of the arcade version of turtles in time. Overall the game is a fun beat em up featuring the lovable turtle characters, and it is a decent rehash.TIT uses the typical beat em up formula which features varied enemies and stages, with a boss fight at the end of each stage. The game features 4 difficulty levels in which you are sure to find the right one for your abilities. The game also features an added survival...

Battle of The Bands WII 0

Battle of the Bands is a different take on the music rhythm game genre that is full of guitar hero's and sing stars.  With that said the game may be interesting to you at first but after you start the second song the game will become very boring.  The formula used in the gameplay is good, but honestly how fun can moving the WII remote left, right, and down be.  The answer is that it cannot be much fun at all.The concept behind Battle of The Bands was what I expressed earlier.  The player moves t...

Fifa 08 PS3 0

Compliments: -Funnest Sports game to play -Awesome graphics and commentary -Hundreds of hours of depth and gameplay -Every playable team you could imagine Complaints: -Sometimes spotty AI especially with goalies Fifa 08 is a fantastic entry in the series and is as close as you can get to a perfect soccer game. There was a point when Winning Eleven owned the soccer video game genre, but once the current generation hit Fifa has passed Winning Eleven as the best soccer franchise. ...

KH Chain Of Memories GBA 0

Compliments: -Looks great -Good for hardcore KH fans -Combat system works Complaints: -Grinding to find the right cards is horrible -Same game done again -Very short I was expecting a lot more out of Kingdom Hearts Chain of Memories, but as the game progressed the more i grew to hate it. KH Chain of Memories takes the 1st version of the game for the PS2 and remakes it using a different combat system and a different story surrounding memories from the first game. All the same cha...

Compliments: - Very cool concept and design - Sometimes good graphics Complaints: -Horrible Control Scheme -Very Short game made terribly longer by bad boss fights and some extremely difficult sections -Only a handful of the 50 mini games are even worth attempting Super Monkey Ball Banana Blitz offered a little fun at first but from the first minute you play the quality will spiral downhill until you can not take it anymore. Super Monkey Ball is often hailed as being a game t...

Elite Beat Agents DS 0

Elite Beat Agents is a blast to play but there are a few things that really bothered me in this game and really took down the game. The game overall is fairly simple to play. The player taps along with the beat using the stylus on the touch screen and there are only three types of notes to perform. The note you will see the most is just taping a small numbered circle when the bigger outer circle makes contact with it. In a series of notes they will be the same color and hitting them all pe...

MGS PS1 Review 0

Metal Gear Solid was Hideo Kojima's first shot at the metal gear franchise, and his first attempt was a masterpiece.  Metal Gear Solid takes place on a terrorist military base where a super nuclear weapon, metal gear, is being held by the terrorists.  It is up to Solid Snake to shake off the many plot twists along the way and save the world.  The story in MGS is possibly one of the best ever written for a video game, especially a playstation 1 game.  The cut scenes in the game are pretty lengthy...

Rocket Slime DS 0

Dragon Quest Heroes Rocket Slime is just one of the few rip-offs of the Dragon Quest Series. You play as Rocket Slime who is in charge of saving the city of Slimania after the Plob invades. The player, while battling the plob, will have to save 100 residents of the city. At its core there are only two gameplay mechanics to the game. The first part is on foot combat and platforming. It is here where you will find most of the slimes the player needs to rescue. The combat consists of power bashin...

Top Spin 2 XBOX360 0

Top Spin 2 published by 2K is a tennis game which features many of today's top tennis professionals. Gameplay: At its core tennis is a slow paced game, and it can be hard for non tennis fans to play tennis video games because of this. Therefore, if you have any interest in tennis or want to know more about the sport this game is for you. The controls for the game are simple, simple to the point where almost anybody can pick up and play. I found myself perfect with the controls even after not pl...

The more blocks you can string together the bigger the combo and more points will be accumulated. Audiosurf takes any music track on your computer and analyzes it...

Fight Night XBOX 360 0

This is a quick review of Fight Night Round 3 Published by EA and Developed by EA Chicago. Gameplay: Fight Night Round 3 at first glance appears to be a very sim like boxing game but the game ended up being kind of easy. I was playing on the medium difficulty and ran into a few difficult bouts but I breezed by the career mode in about 8 hours of play, also unlocking all 1000 ach. points. There is a lack of customization and options in the career. You basically train then fight then do it all o...
