  • Rogue Warrior Review

    Posted: December 4, 2009

    Average User Rating 

    Rogue Warrior is a first-person shooter based on the life and autobiography of Richard "Dick" Marcinko, a soldier who served with the Navy SEALs in Vietnam, and later formed Red Cell, who were tasked with testing the security of bases, submarines, and, most famously, Air Force One. In other words, an interesting character. Oh, if only we could...

  • The Saboteur Review

    Posted: December 3, 2009

    Average User Rating 

    Developer Pandemic Studios tries to set up everything from the very beginning: a large cast of characters, deep motivation, and a bold story. The problem is that the team coasts on most of that momentum until the end of the game when they decide to tie up the story, or at least the main arc.

  • Left 4 Dead 2 Review

    Posted: November 16, 2009

    Average User Rating 

    Left 4 Dead 2 is a worthy sequel and at no point comes across as a game that should have been released as a downloadable expansion to the original. You are getting a true sequel here. Valve may have produced Left 4 Dead 2 in a single year, but it's a game intelligently engineered for fans of the original and meant to frustrate you in the most...

  • Fallen Earth Review

    Posted: November 12, 2009 | 20 Comments

    Average User Rating 

    While it could be plain bad timing, it's a little difficult to get too excited about another apocalyptic game at the moment. That is strike one. That Fallen Earth attempts to do some new things with the genre -- high-speed transportation from the start, FPS-like handling for ranged attacks -- is great, and a lack of grinding is refreshing....

  • Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 Review

    Posted: November 10, 2009

    Average User Rating 

    Nobody does war like Infinity Ward. Its 'Call of Duty' titles have evolved from excellent examples of the first-person shooter genre to a redefinition of what gamers expect from a war title. With 'Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2', Infinity Ward takes the already solid foundation laid in 'Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare' and polishes it to a...

  • Dragon Age: Origins Review

    Posted: November 3, 2009

    Average User Rating 

    Dragon Age is a brilliant, if slightly predictable, addition to BioWare's stable of RPG classics. It suffers from a few problems with plotting and world building but ultimately triumphs, offering a classic RPG experience that can hold its head high with any of BioWare's previous games.

  • Operation Flashpoint: Dragon Rising Review

    Posted: October 12, 2009

    Average User Rating 

    With the original series creators working on Armed Assault, Codemasters picks up the reins of the Operation Flashpoint franchise with Dragon Rising, but will its console debut have crossover success or will it remain a niche hit?

  • Star Wars: The Clone Wars: Republic Heroes Review

    Posted: October 7, 2009 | 9 Comments

    Average User Rating 

    A third-person action game, Star Wars: The Clone Wars: Republic Heroes is based on the CGI 'toon that just started its second season on Cartoon Network, with the same great voice cast and recognizable sound effects. But unlike the show, which is clearly designed to be for Star Wars fans of all ages, this game is clearly aimed more at its younger...

  • Aion: Tower of Eternity Review

    Posted: October 5, 2009

    Average User Rating 

    Aion is definitely a refreshing looking MMO; online gamers tired of certain other franchises will initially feel like they're really doing something new. Of course, after a few hours it'll become apparent that there isn't much radically different here, but it's all very well polished, very well balanced sameness.

  • Order of War Review

    Posted: September 23, 2009 | 15 Comments

    Average User Rating 

    World War II has been done a million times in a million strategy games, so a game needs to be pretty special to stand out. Genre newcomers Wargaming.net and Square Enix tried to do just that with Order of War, a broad-based real-time strategy title that tries to combine hard-core strategy, accessibility and cinematic flair.

    From towering robots and hunched-over beasts to winged angels and horned mutants, you have the freedom to create just about anything you can imagine. Does the gameplay inspire the same level of creativity?

  • Tales of Monkey Island: Siege of Spinner Cay Review

    Posted: August 24, 2009

    Average User Rating 

    Guybrush Threepwood is back. Er, again. Telltale Games and LucasArts have launched the second episode in Tales of Monkey Island, The Siege of Spinner Cay, and there's good news to report. The second installment acknowledges and (mostly) fixes the annoying issues from the first outing, manages to surprise with new twists on age-old adventure...

  • Wolfenstein Review

    Posted: August 19, 2009

    Average User Rating 

    Wolfenstein is not a bad game. It's actually a pretty good one, a game that legitimately pushes new ideas into the shooter. But if you judged Wolfenstein's potential by the lackluster effort Activision's put into making people pay attention to the potentially last collaboration between id Software and Raven Software, no one would blame you for...

  • Tales of Monkey Island: Launch of the Screaming Narwahl Review

    Posted: July 15, 2009

    Average User Rating 

    When's the last time you couldn't stop smiling while playing a video game? It doesn't very happen to me very often. But virtually nothing could wipe the smirk that was seemingly tattooed to my face while reviewing Tales of Monkey Island: Launch of the Screaming Narwhal, the first of a five-part episodic new story in LucasArts' classic franchise.

  • Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen Review

    Posted: July 2, 2009

    Average User Rating 

    Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen is one of those movie games that you figure has to be better than the movie. At the very least, a big, loud, borderline-incoherently-plotted three-hour action scene would seem to be ripe for the videogame conversion treatment. The results aren't perfection, but this is arguably a step forward for transforming...
