From Mini-Game to the Best on XBLA - Review by Kim Fidler 0

  It really is amazing how popular the Geometry Wars series has become. From it's modest roots as a mini-game, to an XBLA launch title, to where it's at today with Geometry Wars Retro Evolved 2. It's become the most well known title on the Xbox Live Marketplace, and if you know someone with a 360, there's a good chance it has Geometry Wars on it. To match its popularity, it has synonymously become known as the most addictive pick up and play title on any of the systems it has appeared on. If som...

More Than the Sum of its Parts - Review by Kim Fidler 2

It's not every day that a game you expected to be horrible, turns out to be pretty good. I will admit that my expectations for Robert Ludlum's The Bourne Conspiracy were pretty low, and maybe that's why I had such a great time with it. High Moon Studios has proven that it is possible to make a video game based off of a movie that is not only decent, but better than many of the other titles sitting on store shelves. While it's not perfect, it does show what kind of product can be released when a ...

Battlefield: Bad Company - Review by Kim Fidler 1

Back in 2002, a game came out that was totally different than anything I had played before. It was an online only game that had some of the largest maps I had ever seen, and a plethora of vehicles to traverse them. Battlefield 1942 was my first taste of actual online warfare. While I did play Counterstrike, Quake III, and Team Fortress Classic; BF1942 was the first time that I actually felt like I was in a real war. Well, as close as a video game could potentially get you to real war. Over the...

Juiced (Xbox) - Review by Kim Fidler 0

Street racing, one of the newest forms of youthful expression, has taken the videogame world by storm. Dozens of titles have flooded the market since "The Fast and the Furious" trend began, but only a handful have proved to be worthy of purchase. Is THQ's latest release, Juiced, one of the few successful interpretations, or is it just another face in the crowd? Juiced is an import racer that focuses on all the right areas and paints a pretty realistic picture of the import scene. It accurately r...

Haunting Ground (PS2) - Review by Kim Fidler 0

Have you ever seen a news story on TV that made you ask yourself why anyone would do such a thing? Haunting Ground, Capcom's latest horror offering for the PlayStation 2, is exactly the same type of thing - a voyeuristic adventure that begs to be played, even if it can at times feel quite unsettling. It is not unlike a car crash that is gawked at by onlookers and rubberneck traffic as they pass by, hoping to catch a glimpse of something they know they should not have seen. Haunting Ground puts ...

Lego Indians Jones: The Original Adventures (X360) Review 0

There's something about Lego that never really grows old. You could have been given your first Lego set at 5 years old, and 20 years later still feel inclined to play with it. I remember going home about 5 years after I had moved out and finding my box of Legos that I had last played with when I was about 11. There was a knife in there that I spent about 4 hours on trying to make it look as realistic as possible. At the bottom of the box, another unfinished masterpiece that I believe was going...

Sega Superstars Tennis (X360) - Review by Kim Fidler 4

Whenever a new tennis game hits the market, it seems that I'm always right there to greet it with open arms. I've never been a huge tennis fan, but the games always seem to hook me with their easy to master controls, non-confusing rule sets, and colorful graphics. Sega Superstars Tennis is no exception. Having played all of the Mario Tennis games to death, I was a little apprehensive about entering into the world of Sonic and Co. It's almost like cheating on your girlfriend that you never foug...

Dead Rising (X360) - Review by Kim Fidler 1

Every console generation always seems to have a title that is misunderstood. It has all the elements that makes a game great, yet it attempts something new that many who play just don’t seem to understand. When Dead Rising was released in 2006, it was praised as a title that tried to revolutionize the standard formula of open world games, while at the same time it was also criticized for its unforgiving real-time aspects. Described by Keiji Inafune, the game’s creator, as a throwback to the ol...

Tom Clancy's Rainbow Six: Vegas 2 - Review by Kim Fidler 2

Up until the day “Rainbow Six Vegas 2” was released, I had a group of friends that still played the original on a daily basis. Each one making bold claims that not only was it superior to the online offerings of other top FPS titles, but it was probably the best online game of all time. To say the least, I was sceptical. Saying that it’s better than Call of Duty 4, I can understand, people have their own opinion on what they find enjoyable in an FPS. However, saying that it’s best online game ...

Assassin's Creed (X360) - Review by Kim Fidler 1

When I was younger, I always wanted to be an assassin. For some reason, the thought of sneaking around in shadows and getting the drop on a drug lord always seemed to appeal to me. When I first heard about Assassin’s Creed, I immediately thought that my dreams were going to become a reality. With large sweeping cities to use as my playground, I imagined leaping from high buildings into a packed market while being chased by my pursuers. In a way, my dreams came true, but that doesn’t mean that ev...
