DeathSpank Review 0

Deathspank, a game imagined and realized by Ron Gilbert and Hot Head Games, thrusts you into the role of DeathSpank hero to the downtrodden, and adventurer extrordinaire. You will find a multitude of weapons at your disposal as you battle chickens, demons, pips, and orques. You'll be given a wide range of quests ranging from collecting felt to collecting cans. The most important quest, however, is to capture the artifact for a lady with red hair.Graphically this game looks like it utilizes the s...

DarkSiders Review 0

You are War one of the Four Horsemen, and you've been called to earth as heaven and hell have broken out into an all out war in front of humans (or as some call them, the "air breathers"). You will learn the basics of what you are capable of through the first level, but then a twist occurs and what you once were, you are no longer. You will have to redeem yourself and stop the forces that move through the world. The "air breathers" are no more, but there is plenty of challenges standing in your ...

Dementium: The Ward Review 0

Have you been looking for a game that gives you a little bit of a spook on the DS, well this might be the one for you then. In this game you wake up in a hospital where the lights are out, and you're all alone. You're going to have to navigate your way through the hospital to find some answers, and maybe even save your own life.Graphically on the DS you're not going to be blown away but the pixelated images you're going to find, but over all this game gives you the feeling of being in a run down...

3D Dot Game Heroes Review 0

Do you yearn to return to the days of 2D kingdoms where the task of saving the world was in a simply flat world? Well there is a kingdom that once was exactly that, and had a hero who saved the day. People from all over came and visited, but as time went on less and less people showed up until the day that the king of the lands made the decree that everything was to go 3D. Upon that announcement the world shook and everything from cats, dogs, people, and houses rose up and embraced the 3D world....

Punch-Out!! Review 0

Remember the good old days of the Nintendo game, Mike Tyson's Punch Out, where you took on the role of Mac, a boxer on a mission? Well you're going to get to do it all over again, with a couple of extra fighters in the way, and no Mike Tyson. In this updated version you'll get to see that some of the old favorites have some new tricks of their sleeves, but it all comes down to spotting their second of weakness, do that and you can once again rise to the top.Graphically this game looks smooth. Yo...

Ratchet & Clank Future: A Crack in Time Review 0

Ratchet and Clank are back again to protect the universe. This time around you will get to play as both Ratchet and Clank as you try to stop Dr. Nefarious from trying to control the flow of time in the universe. This is the first outing for the franchise onto the PlayStation 3.Graphically, the smooth, cartoony look looks stunning. There's only some slight issues when moving around quickly through the level, but for the most part everything looks smooth, there's no jagged edges. The creative look...

Frequency Review 0

Before I start I know that this game is ancient by today's standards, an early PS2 game, this rhythm game was from Harmonix before they made the huge splash with their titles Guitar Hero and then Rock Band. In this rhythm game you will be taking on a more DJ like feel. You will be utilizing your controller to try to keep beat as the indicators come down the screen. You'll have to be on alert though as when you successfully finish one section you're going to have to switch rails.Graphically this ...

Final Fantasy XIII Review 0

The latest and probably one of the final Final Fantasies can be found on both the PlayStation 3 and the XBOX 360. I decided since the majority of my collection resides on the Sony platform that I would continue to follow that trend, and on the plus side it gave me something other than Blu-Rays to play on that system. Anyways you will be playing the part of multiple different characters at different parts of the game. The overall story going along the lines of two societies going at each other, c...

Pokemon SoulSilver Review 0

Pokemon SoulSilver as well as HeartGold are remakes of pokemon games Silver and Gold. This time around you will find that there's an accessory to go along with the regular pokemon action, and that that accessory can change the landscape of the game. As always we're talking about a game where you're going to be collecting creatures called Pokemon in a 3rd person top down view. You'll have to challenge gym leaders for badges to increase your powers and control over higher leveled Pokemon. You'll a...

Global Agenda Review 0

I want to start off and say that I've been dreading doing this review for quite sometime now. It isn't that I don't like the game, I just kept wishing that there was more to this game that was going to be able to draw me in and make me say "holy crap everyone needs to get this game". It also helps/hurts that I actually know some of the people that made that magic happen. Global Agenda is a 3rd Person shooter in which you will be taking on 1 of 4 classes. You'll go through a tutorial with a cooki...

Ghostbusters The Video Game Review 0

To those out there who couldn't get enough of the Ghostbusters movies and have been dying for more, let me introduce you to the game that is basically Ghostbusters 3. With the entire lead cast voicing this adventure you'll find yourself pleading that this game was a movie. You take on the role as the rookie, and will be fighting along side all the other Ghostbusters as you try to figure out what is going on in New York. You'll visit old familiar places, and recognize some evil faces. You'll beco...

The Misadventures of P.B. Winterbottom Review 0

This XBOX Live Arcade game has you assuming the role of PB Winterbottom a pie hungry thief whose only love in life is to steal and eat pies. You will be trying to capture a very elusive pie, but on the way you'll have to solve puzzle after puzzle to unlock other levels to get your closer to that pie.I  really like the graphical style they went with in this game. Almost entirely black and white with an old silent film type of feel to it. This is even further enforced with the mechanism of recordi...

Monster Hunter Freedom Unite Review 0

This piece of the Monster Hunter franchise finds itself on the PSP where you will take on the persona of a brand new monster hunter coming to town to replace the old one, and keep peace in the village. You'll be taking on numerous quests as well as creating equipment to better suit your needs.Graphically this game does alright. There's definitely a lack of smoothness around the edges of most creatures, character, and environment when you get up close and personal with them. The change in scenery...

Section 8 Review 0

Section 8 is a game in which you take on the role of a fast promoted soldier who is part of an elite squad to try to take out the evil in the far frontiers of space. You'll be tasked with capturing different strategics points throughout a level until you can corner the evil-doers. Graphically this game is kind of blah. It's not bad looking, but at the same time this game does make me want to scream, wow that looks awesome. Levels do have a certain appeal, but they could be placed in any futurist...

Final Fantasy: Crystal Chronicles: Crystal Bearers Review 0

First off I'd like to say that the title for this Wii game is way too long. That is one hell of a mouthful to say. Now lets get down to it. This is the next Crystal Chronicles game in which you will be playing the part of a Crystal Bearer who charges himself with trying to discover what is going on with the a particular Yuke. The Yuke race was said to have completely disappeared, and yet there's one running around trying to collect a special type of crystal to try to resurrect her race. Along th...

Beatles Rock Band Review 0

 Well if you can't guess from the title this a stand-alone Rock Band game featuring the one and only Beatles. Now because of some crazy legal stuff this game truly stands alone, not allowing any other Rock Band to interact with it. Now let's just say up front that if you're not a  Beatles fan, you're not going to enjoy this game nearly as much as someone who has grown up listening to them. The graphics, I have to say were a great surprise. I wish you could create your own characters to throw int...

Class of Heroes Review 0

Class of Heroes is a PSP game that will take you and your party of six to a school for adventurers. You'll be able to create a party of 6, take classes, buy items, and explore dungeons. You will get to see several different types of player classes, races, and you'll have to work to make your party of six mesh so that you can bring back incredible treasures, left for you to discover.Graphically this game is what we've grown to expect on the PSP for a RPG. It is a bit odd to see dwarves pictures a...

Half-Minute Hero Review 0

In this very unique PSP game you'll have the ability to play it from different modes. Each mode will give you a different taste of game play, and if you are able to successfully navigate through the entire game you'll notice that this game will indeed take longer than half a minute. Some of the modes will have you trying to get from one end of the map to another while dealing with random encounters. Another mode will have you shooting in 4 different directions as you try to navigate a stage to c...

X-men Origins: Wolverine Review 0

Having not seen the movie I can't tell you if this is a faithful adaptation or not, but what I can tell you is it is a gory, fast-pace, thrill ride where you get to play as Wolverine and slice and dice the crap out of countless enemies as you get a little bit of history on the clawed hero. You will get to witness his past, and glimpse the future. You'll get to make Wolverine one badass customer who will let nothing stand in his way.Graphically I have to say that this game surprised me. I wasn't ...

Song Summoner Review 0

Take on the role of Ziggy a person with unknown potential who is on a quest to find the brother that was stolen from him by evil robotic looking characters. This iPhone/iPod touch game by Square Enix will give you a taste of what a solid turn-based strategy game with a little hint of Monster Rancher thrown in there. You will gain characters throughout your journey through the game, but some of them will be created by the very music that resides on your device. Graphically you're looking at a gam...

Borderlands Review 0

Borderlands is the type of game that it first glance might not look like a very impressive game, but that first glance could not be further from the truth. The truth is that this game will have you glued to it through at least one if not two complete play-through. The story is that there exists this place of power, wealth, and women, and if you can reach it, all can be yours. In order to reach it though you're going to have to go through some real nasty enemies to collect pieces for the Vault Ke...

Batman Arkham Asylum Review 0

Step into the boots of the Dark Knight as you visit Arkham Asylum to watch Joker get checked back in. Unfortunately that's where the routine-ness ends as all hell breaks loose and all the inmates start taking over the Asylum. Joker heads of the crew of super villains as he has a special surprise for Batman, but he wants to make sure everything is ready before you can see it, so you'll have to battle through characters such as Poison Ivy, Harley Quinn, Killer Croc, and Scarecrow. You'll also have...

Cross Edge Review 1

Cross Edge is a RPG that takes characters from other franchises and puts them all together in a multi-dimensional/world game in which you are tasked with trying to free the spirits of those trap in this world.

You'll have to search the worlds to reveal their secrets.In the graphics department this game really depresses me. With the exc...

Bionic Commando Review 0

Bionic Commando is the old series returned, well sort of. You will be doing a lot of swinging through stages with your bionic arm, as well as utilizing it as a lethal weapon against  your opponents. You have been in jail but have now been released to put a stop to an evil army that has taken over. You'll also be in constant communications with Joe, the man who made you who you are today, as well as the man that pointed the finger at you and had you put in prison.Graphically this game stands up t...

Saints Row 2 Review 0

Saints Row 2 is the second in the Saint Row series. You will once again be taking the reigns of a member of the Saints and try to reclaim the city that was once yours. You'll have a large variety of guns to choose from, as well as cars to drive. You'll have to start small, but as you go through the game you will be able to take control of sections of the city. With the over the top exaggerations, violence, and activities this is sure to be a unique treat.Graphically this game looks on par with a...

Torchlight Review 1

Torchlight is a hack and slash RPG from Runic Games for the PC. You will get to choose one of three different character types and then explore the town of Torchlight, and the very, very deep dungeon that sits beneath the quiet town.

Persona Review 0

  Persona for the PSP is the re-release and port of the original Persona game. This is the real version, not the PS1 edited for the US version of the game. You will be traversing a town trying to get to the bottom of a mysterious phenomenon that is happening. You'll also get sucked into an alternate dimension. The best part though is that something happens to you and your friends and you all now have the ability to summon Persona to help combat the monsters, zombies, and more that will step in y...

NCAA Basketball 10 Review 0

NCAA Basketball 10 is the latest college hoops video game from EA. In this game you'll once again be able to have exhibitions games, there's a dynasty mode, there's an online mode, and of course you'll be able to create your own team to compete against all the major schools in men's college basketball.Graphically this game looks like a generic college hoops game for this generation of consoles. I will give EA this they did get better models for the fans in comparison to the college football game...

BlazBlue: Calamity Trigger Review 0

BlazBlue: Calamity Trigger is a fighting game from the company that brought you Guilty Gear, and to be honest the difference between the games is the name change, and the fact that there's no one hit kills. You will be able to select from a variety of characters each with their own twist to a central storyline. Each of these characters have their own move-set to learn to help you defeat your opponents in battle.Graphically this game looks like what the next-gen Guilty Gear should look, with the ...

Red Faction: Guerrilla Review 0

 Red Faction: Guerrilla is a third person action game that takes place on Mars. You will be playing the role of a person that has just come to visit your brother and to do a hard day's work. Of course that would make for a really boring game, so almost immediately you lose your brother, and your hand is forced to join the Red Faction. The Red Faction is an underground movement to try to take the control of Mars away from the current military ruling party, and give it back to the people. You will...

Halo Wars is Microsoft's attempt into the RTS (Real Time Strategy) realm, using the abundance of the Halo Universe to help get gamers motivated to give this game a try.
