Refreshing But A Bit Frustrating 0

There are parts of this game that you'll absolutely love - mainly the Boss battles.  Those are all extremely polished and a lot of fun to play.  I loved every minute of those.  However, the game has a lot of negative areas that are extremely frustrating.  While I enjoyed the side jobs a bit initially - they get really boring because you have to repeat them over and over again.  The combat can also be pretty repetitive; granted the controls and wrestling moves mitigate this somewhat - I still wou...

The Missing Link 0

For me, this game is what ties the Mario of my childhood to the Mario we see in Galaxy.  The game features many of the game-play mechanisms seen in games from the NES era coupled with some of the newer innovations in gaming such as 3D graphics and save points.  That said, this choice limits the games appeal somewhat because many modern-day gamers will be put off by the old school feel of the game.  The most often cited issue being the lengthy amount of text that the game requires you to read.  I...

Much More Cinematic 0

A lot of the published reviews' main criticism was that this game was not a giant leap forward from the first Max Payne and while that may be true from a graphical standpoint, this sequel features a huge improvement in the way the story is unraveled.  Whereas in Max Payne the three chapters were disjointed and could easily be standalone episodes, the sequel's chapters are much more interwoven to form a compelling story that makes you want to play the game.  Moreover, the addition of cinematic sc...

Great Controls Can't Make Up For Bland 0

In two or three  years, we'll probably look back and cite this game as the grandfather of a whole slew of FPS for the Wii.  This was the one that proved to the masses that the Wii's controls were perfect for an FPS.  The game controls are absolutely amazing.  They let you have an astounding degree of control and really make you feel much more involved in the game.That said, this game couldn't be more uninspired.  The story comes off-half hearted at best and everything about the game just screams...

Polished, But Lacking 0

I was pretty excited to try this game out because I read a whole lot of good things on the internet about it.  After playing it, I must say however, that the game was lacking for me in a couple of key areas.  The controls work well enough, but it's extremely hard to really maneuver around any tight spaces.  Luckily, you never really have to so it's not a huge problem.The story also just didn't do it for me. The cut scenes are really well done, but the story is delivered terribly when you're actu...

Old School Game With New-School Touches 0

This game reminded me of the 2d side-scrolling platformers of old except that it was completely devoid of all the annoying elements that I remember from my childhood.  The game-play just works.  So well in fact  that you find yourself enjoying the game more and more as you get deeper into it.  I noticed this in particular with the length of my play sessions.  At first, I'd play this game for twenty minutes or so and say, well that was alright, but as I kept playing my playtime began to creep up ...

Psychonauts is a true pleasure 0

All too often I find myself trying to race to beat a game just so I can be done with it - either it lacks an interesting story or the game-play is just so annoying that overtime it becomes physically painful to endure. This is definitely not the case for Psychonauts.  The game is an absolute joy to play.  I think the main reason I enjoyed was that it was just so polished and everything just seemed to work exactly like the game's creator envisioned in his mind.  The game is not particularly hard,...
