Beyond Good and Evil Review 0

Beyond Good & Evil came out for the last generation of consoles (Gamecube, PS2, and XBOX), but because of its underground success Ubisoft was willing to update the graphics a smidgen and throw it back to the public on at least the XBOX Live Arcade Marketplace. You will be playing the role of Jade, an innocent person who gets thrusted into the role of a secret agent.Graphically you can see that the world and character models came from the XBOX, but at least it looks like there was a bit of po...

Pilotwings Resort Review 0

In a long needed return the Pilotwings franchise finds its way on to the new Nintendo 3DS. In this game you'll be be utilizing jetpacks, planes, and even a hang glider to complete several different assignments. You'll get to fly all over the island to do so, and there's even a couple of hidden secrets for those willing to go find them.Graphically this game is on par with Wii graphics. It basically looks like they took Wii Sports Resort and removed those games and basically allowed for fly-overs ...

Marvel vs. Capcom 3 Review 0

Marvel vs. Capcom is one of those cross over fighting franchises that make certain gamers salivate. You will have your choice of 3 characters to go up against another team of 3 characters. If you can master the moves, as well as master when to bring a different character in, you could find yourself a champion. Now as with most fighting games, there's not a whole lot to the story portion of the game. Yes, Galactus is trying to consume your world, and you're going to need to defeat all the fighter...

BioShock 2 Review 0

I literally played BioShock and BioShock back to back so my experience in Rapture was both fresh in my mind and confusing. In BioShock 2 you are one of the first Big Daddys named Delta. You have awoken from your slumber on a mission to find the little sister that you were paired with. You'll have to go all through Rapture to find her, but you'll have to try to stop the minions of Sophia Lamb, a person who was apparently still running things in Rapture after Atlas and Andrew Ryan met their bitter...

BioShock Review 0

BioShock is one of those games that definitely leaves you both wanting more and at the same time complete exhaustion. In this game you are an unexpecting passenger of an aircraft that crashes inot the middle of the ocean. Somehow you survive the crash and float to the top. You don't seem to spot any suriviors but there does seem to be some strange tower in the middle of the ocean. You swim to it thinking that at least you'll be able to wait rescue not having to tread water. You discover a door, ...

Risk FACTIONS review 0

Remember that boardgame of world domination where you have to amass units and try to take out your opponents with strategic planning and a slow but steady pace plan of attack? Well there's a new twist on the XBOX Live Arcade. In the game Risk: Factions you'll be given the chance to play a mode that takes slightly less time, well a good chunk less. You'll be able to choose one of five "races" the cats, humans, yetis, zombies, and robots. I would love to say that each has its advantages and disadv...

Dead Space 2 Review 0

Dead Space 2 puts you back in the shows of everyone's favorite engineer Isaac Clarke. You are discovered in what looks like a medical wing of sorts by someone who quickly meets his end. You'll have to race through a couple of areas but soon you will have a familiar suit and weapon to use. You'll find that your in a colony this time around and there seems to be plenty of people willing to help you, but to what end. Travel all over the city fighting all those creatures that you so grew to hate. Do...

DC Universe Online Review 2

DC Universe Online is a MMO (Massive Multiplayer Online Game) for the PC (and soon the PlayStation 3), in which you get to create your own Super hero, or villain and take on many of the different famous locales in DC comics. You will be divided into either the hero faction or the villain faction. You'll get to see one another on the battle field of PvP battles. Graphically you can easily see that they wanted to go with a comic book style type of game. Your character creator has its ups and downs...

Donkey Kong Country Returns Review 0

Once again it is time to play as DK (Donkey Kong) as his horde of Bananas has yet again been stolen right under his nose. This time its a hypnotizing mask that gets all the animals on the island to do its dirty work. You get to choose slight variations in your path to defeat bosses that will try to stop you from ascending the Volcano for the final showdown.Graphically this looks like Donkey Kong Country with updated graphics. There's also the wider range of level types that you'll be taking on a...

Amnesia: The Dark Descent 0

Amnesia: The Dark Descent is a PC game in which you descent into the far reaches an ancient mansion in Prussia. You start off the game apparently having taken something that erases your memory. When you wake up you find yourself in unfamiliar surroundings, soon after exploring your surroundings you discover a letter that you, yourself, must have written shortly before. It tells you to seek out Alexander in the inner sanctum and kill him.Graphically this game looks like it could have come out dur...

Lost in Shadow Review 0

Lost In Shadow is a game for the Wii in which you will get to step into the shoes of your shadow. You will find that you have been thrusted off the top of the tower, well at least your shadow will fall the length of the tower. You will then have to navigate the world all the way back up the tower by running in the shadow of what lies in the foreground.Graphically this has the feel of a Wii game written all over it, yes the artistic style is unique, but in the foreground you're going to find a lo...

Ghost Trick: Phantom Detective is a DS game in which you play the spirit of a dead individual who has the ability to manipulate inanimate objects around you. You will quickly meet Ray, a desk lamp, well a spirit like you who is fascinated with inhabiting a lamp.

Red Dead Redemption Review 0

Come to the lawless West as John Marston, a man with a shadowy pasted that has been sent by the government, well more like forced, to go find an old riding partner of yours. Right off the bat you'll see how much that partner of your's likes you and there is where the story begins. You'll have to take on a mountain of quests to get what you want, to get back to your "friend".

WET Review 0

You get to become Rubi a deadly assassin who loves to kick ass and doesn't mind being out numbered. You are a gun for hire and it is one of your jobs that gets you in the mess that you find yourself in. Looks like you should have checked references on the last job you took, but now you get to come back with a vengeance and show everyone you're no one to be mess with.Graphically this looks like a very good game. the projector effect, however, will leave you slightly motion sick after a while. You...

Raskulls Review 0

Raskulls is an XBOX Live Arcade game in which you will be playing as one of many different skull faced characters trying to complete some task that usually revolves around some sort of race. You will definitely get blowing up a ton of blocks to get to your goal.Graphically there's the feel of a little bit of cutesy with a little bit of the absurd. Some of the character designs are a dragon, well a skull faced individual in a dragon costume, little red riding hood, a king, a mummy, a duck, and a ...

Infinity Blade Review 0

Infinity Blade is basically the iPod equivalent of Punch Out, but set back in the time of swords and magic. What I mean by this is you're going to have to read your opponents moves and then counter attack, trying to create an opening to unleash havoc. This game was developed by Chair, and released by Epic, utilizing the Unreal engine.Needless to say this is probably one of the best looking games on the iPod Touch/iPhone/iPad. It's also a very good way to show the versatility of the Unreal Engine...

Monster Dash Review 0

Monster Dash is a game by the development studio HalfBrick. In this game you're playing what can only be described as a monster hunter who is trying to run through several different locations. You'll face off against mummies, demons, vampires, and zombies, all while in a constant sprint.The graphics in this game look like a very well made Flash game, there's no visual lag as your character traverses the levels, and everything seems to have its own feel to it. I do like the fact that there are di...

Ilomilo Review 0

Ilo and Milo are best of friends who love to meet up in the park, the problem is that they can't ever seem to remember how to meet up with one another, or perhaps its the park that is constantly changing. You or you and a friend will have to take on the different levels to help those two reunite. Along the way you'll have the chance to collect music, pictures, and memories.Graphically this game looks top notch for an XBOX Live Arcade game. The cuteness fact is definitely present, as is the inter...

Trauma Team Review 0

Trauma Team comes to the Wii courtesy of Atlus, and has you stepping into the roles of several different doctors. You'll be performing surgeries, trying to help out  at the scene of an accident, and even playing the part of a forensics expert. You'll be impressed with how every single character has a different style of play and will keep you going for quite a while.Graphically this screams the style that you're used to from Atlus, an almost Persona art style. They will do cut scenes in comic boo...

NBA Jam Review 0

Its been a while since last we got to sample this iconic game on the console, but this game has once again appeared, even if it is from the ashes of another game, NBA Elite 11. In this game you will be squaring off in a 2 versus 2 NBA showdown, where there are no fouls, there's no out of bounds line, and slam dunks are spectacular, if not physically impossible. You'll get to choose from all 30 teams, and you'll also have three of their stars to choose from.Graphically this game isn't suppose to ...

Guilty Party Review 0

Guilty Party is basically a simplified Clue-esque type game for the Wii where you will get to explore different locations, trying to gather up clues in an effort to see who committed the crime. As you are picking up evidence you'll have to get through different types of puzzles. The adventure begins with the theft of a character's pudding, and escalates from there.Graphically this game gives you some cutesy looking characters. There is definitely some blockiness to everything, and it doesn't loo...

Epic Mickey Review 0

Epic Mickey, from the man who brought you so much, Warren Spector, is a game in which you will be playing the role of Mickey Mouse as you try to save a world ravaged by evil with the help of a magic brush that can either shoot out paint or thinner. You will have to piece back what once was, and find away to return home.Graphically this game looks good for a Wii game, I really wish it was a PC game so that I can ramp up the graphics just a touch more, but this is a very well done, from a graphics...

Poker Night at the Inventory Review 0

Poker Night at the Inventory is a computer game brought to you by Tell Tale Games. You will get to play Texas Hold'em against some recognizable icons. Those of course would be Max (Sam & Max), Strong Bad (Homestarrunner), The Heavy (Team Fortress 2), and Tycho (Penny Arcade). You have all been invited to an underground tournament where you will have to pit your skills against one another. Done in the comedic formula that sets Tell Tale Games apart don't be surprised if there are some zingers...

Enslaved Review 0

Enslaved puts you in the shoes of a prisoner by the name of Monkey, and shortly after the opening cinematics its painfully obvious why he's named that. You'll be spending a very large portion of the game jumping from pole to hand hold, to ledge, and more. You'll also be doing all of this for a girl named Trip. She's sort of this technology hacker who just wants to get home. You will be battling tons of different robots, which they call Mechs in the game. Will you be able to survive all that stan...

Kinect Sports Review 0

Kinect Sports is a game created by Rare, yeah that Rare the one behind GoldenEye, especially for the Microsoft Kinect. In this game you'll be able to take on several different sporting events. You'll be able to bowl, play soccer, compete in a track and field contest, play volleyball, play ping pong, and box. Yes this does sound a little too much like Wii Sports, but there's definitely some differences between the two.First off on the graphics front, don't be surprised if the Mii idea has been tr...

Super Scribblenauts Review 0

The Scribblenauts franchise is back again, once again on the DS, and this time around allowing you to not only harness a ton of nouns to help you solve puzzles, but utilize adjectives as well, to enhance your experience. Once again there isn't a continuous story to speak of but there are plenty of levels that will have you gaming for quite some time to come. Graphically you're going to see the same mute color palette and slightly cartoony 2D graphics that you saw in the first game. There's going...

Hydrophobia Review 0

Hydrophobia is a game in which you play a female hacker/swimmer who will have to get to the bottom of the mystery of what is going on on a very large boat as its sinking, and mercenaries are now patrolling the halls. In this XBOX Live Arcade game you definitely see a game that could have easily been a boxed game, but for the price of the game, you're getting a hell of a steal. To be honest this is basically a graphics engine technical demo of what it can do with water effects, but in the end it ...

Final Fantasy: The 4 Heroes of Light Review 0

Final Fantasy: The Heroes of Light takes you back to the DS where you will be controlling a much more manageable amount of characters as you try to solve the mysteries of the world as well save the world for evil. Yes I know we've heard that storyline so many times when it comes to something named Final Fantasy, but the story's enough to make you go through it again.The graphics on this average, which to me is big coming from Square Enix. This game definitely has its range of variety, but it doe...

Alan Wake: The Signal Review 0

This was the first of the two downloadable expansions for the XBOX 360, Alan Wake. I have to say that after one hell of a rollercoaster ride with the actual game, I was pumped to continue on and see if I couldn't get to the bottom of what happened as the game ended. What I found was a sloppy addition. It wasn't bad, it was still Alan Wake, but I was left with the feeling that the expansion changed the game too much. It began to feel arcadey right off the bat, and though I wanted to play through ...

Alan Wake: The Writer Review 0

Alan Wake's story gets stretched just a little bit more. After following the light of Zane, you are faced with the reality that you are trapped somewhere in the Darkness. You'll have to get back through to the cabin, but the world you exist in splinters more. There will be plenty of enemies that will try to block your way, but you must press on in hopes that you'll be able to rid yourself of this twisted world. Unlike The Signal, this DLC entry gets back to what made Alan Wake amazing, in my min...

Halo: Reach Review 0

In Bungie's last personal entry into the Halo universe they decided to go a bit further out of the box than they did with ODST. This time you're going to get a little bit more of a taste of different type of player types that you can train with and get a more personalized experience with. You are the newest recruit into a special forces arm called Noble Team. You're the sixth member and you and your team members will be sent on missions all over Reach, the humans' final stand, trying to discover...

You and your wife plan on staying in a cabin on a lake, but there's something wrong.

Persona 3 Portable Review 0

Final the US gets the version they should have gotten many years ago, at least they get to have it on the PSP and with some added extras. Persona is a game in which you will have to take on monsters in a tower that appears during the Midnight Hour, a hidden hour that only a few can actually function during, and most get transported into a coffin. You will play the part of the lead male character, or if you're looking for a new twist you can try out the new lead female character. You are transfer...

Disciples III: Renaissance Review 1

I'd like to start off by saying that I was one of the few that clung onto Disciples more than Heroes of Might and Magic. The second Disciples had me yearning for more and they delivered with the Gold Edition. Then the wait was on for this amazing graphic update of Disciples III. I think I set the bar way too high on this one. First off right out of the box the game, if you had the disc version in North America, did not work. So after getting it on release day, I had to wait almost 2 whole weeks ...

Puzzle Quest 2 Review 0

Puzzle Quest 2 is the true successor to Puzzle Quest, a game in which you play two genres of games, Puzzle and Role Playing. You can be an assassin, a barbarian, a knight, and more. You will get to play the game Puzzle Quest, but in a more intimate fashion. What I mean by that is that instead of playing from an over-world map, like the first one, you'll be controlling your character through different rooms/areas.Graphically this game is definitely an improvement over the first, not only in the l...

LIMBO Review 0

There comes a time where an XBOX Live Arcade game that looks so simple can draw you in so hard. This is one of those games. LIMBO puts you in the roll of a lost boy, and it is your job to solve all the puzzles/obstacles that stand in your way. This game was developed by PlayDead and can only be found on the XBOX Live Arcade.Graphically I thought this game was going to feel very flat with the monochromatic design, but I was wrong there is a lot of depth of feel in this game, and after a while you...
