Review: WWE 2K16

November 9, 2015 // 1 Comment

My confidence is now restored in this series and I'm excited for the direction it's headed in. In a number of ways these games are better than the real life product because we as fans can make the product the way we want it [...]

Review: Destiny – The Taken King

November 2, 2015 // 0 Comments

A little over a year ago I posted my review of vanilla Destiny, which I gave a superb 4.5 star rating. That review encompassed the game from launch to three weeks after launch with a little over 85 hours invested in it and having done everything but the raid. Now here we are a month and a half removed from the release of Destiny’s first major expansion, The Taken King, and it is time to review it all over again. [...]

Review: Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain (PC)

October 13, 2015 // 0 Comments

Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain (PC [Reviewed], Xbox One, PS4, Ps3, 360) Developer(s): Kojima Productions Publisher: Konami Genre(s): Open world, Action Stealth shooter Released: September 1, 2015 ESRB Rating: M – Mature TEASER: Metal Gear Phantom Pain sets new standards for stealth and action gameplay in an open world. What do you get when you cross the best elements out of a Grand Theft Auto game, the Metal Gear series, stealth games like Splinter Cell,  and for grins an almost MMO lite online mode for a bonus? You get Metal Gear V: The Phantom Pain which is easily in contention for [...]

Review: The Witcher III – Wild Hunt (PC)

July 24, 2015 // 0 Comments

The Witcher 3:Wild Hunt (PC [Reviewed], Xbox One, PS4) Developer(s): CD Projekt RED Publisher: CD Projekt RED Genre(s): Open world, Action RPG Released: May 19, 2015 ESRB Rating: M – Mature This gaming series has been a frustration for me. Frustrating because I have played and tried each game in this series and did my darnedest to fall in love with the games and just couldn’t because some of the gameplay and combat mechanics were not to my liking. I just couldn’t get on board and get excited. Until now. The third time really is the charm for me and likely a lot of other [...]

Review: Red Dead Redemption: Undead Nightmare

May 22, 2011 // 5 Comments

Red Dead Redemption: Undead Nightmare (Playstation 3 [Reviewed], Xbox 360) Developers: Rockstar San Diego, Rockstar North Publisher: Rockstar Games Genre(s): Open World, Third Person Shooter, Western, Survival/Horror Released: October 26, 2010 ESRB Rating: M – Mature Undead Nightmare really is something special. Priced at $10, or 800 Microsoft Points, on PSN and Xbox LIVE, it’s the kind of DLC that even the most anti-DLC person can get behind. It features additional multiplayer modes, but even more importantly a stand-alone single player campaign that will last you roughly six to [...]

Review: L.A. Noire

May 19, 2011 // 11 Comments

L.A. Noire (Playstation 3 [Reviewed], Xbox 360, PC) Developers: Team Bondi, Rockstar Games Publisher: Rockstar Games Genre(s): Action Adventure, Third Person, Open World Released: May 17, 2011 ESRB Rating: M – Mature This review may contain spoilers. This is going to be a hard review to write, especially with trying not to include spoilers (the warning is there for a reason though). If you read my quick thoughts on the game after spending a few hours with it Tuesday, then you know what I initially thought of the game. I loved it; it was fresh and different, and the world was beautiful. Now [...]

Review: Enslaved – Odyssey To The West

May 14, 2011 // 5 Comments

Enslaved: Odyssey To The West (Playstation 3 [Reviewed], Xbox 360) Developer: Ninja Theory Publisher: Namco Bandai Genre(s): Action Adventure Released: October 5, 2010 ESRB Rating: T – Teen Enslaved is a rarity in this day and age. It’s a new IP, it completely leaves out any form of multiplayer, and it’s strictly a linear experience. This all results in one of the best single player games out there thanks to a masterfully crafted story, beautiful cinematics and atmosphere, some really exciting sequences of gameplay, and some well developed combat. You play as Monkey, and you [...]

The Backlog Volume # 3- Mass Effect (Xbox 360)

May 13, 2011 // 3 Comments

Mass Effect (Xbox 360 [Reviewed], PC) Publisher: Microsoft Game Studios, Electronic Arts Developer: Bioware Genre(s): Action, RPG, Third Person Shooter Released: November 20, 2007 ESRB Rating: M – Mature What can I say about Mass Effect?  For those that haven’t played it before, it is one of the best gaming experiences you can have.  For those that have played it, it’s still one of the best gaming experiences you can have. Our journey begins as Commander Shephard, or your own custom made character if you choose to go that route, and the crew of the Normandy being sent to Eden Prime to [...]

Review: Portal 2

May 11, 2011 // 2 Comments

Portal 2 (Xbox 360, Playstation 3 [Reviewed], PC, Mac) Developer: Valve Publisher: Valve Genre(s): First Person Shooter, Puzzle-Platformer Released: April 19, 2011 ESRB Rating: E 10 – Everyone 10+ Reviewer’s Note: I am reviewing the Playstation 3 version of the game, which I got after the attack on the Playstation Network. As such, I have been unable to link the game to my Steam account or connect to PSN to play the online co-op. Therefore, this review does not factor any of the Steam features or the online play. This review is purely based on the single player campaign.  Once PSN [...]

Review: InFamous

May 7, 2011 // 11 Comments

InFamous (Playstation 3) Developer: Sucker Punch Publisher: Sony Genre(s): Open World, Third Person Shooter, Action Released: May 26, 2009 ESRB Rating: T – Teen I’m not a comic book fan and don’t particularly care for superhero stuff at all. Despite hearing great things about InFamous, it never really appealed to me as something I’d want to buy. When I finally got a Playstation 3, it came bundled with two games: Killzone 2 and InFamous. In addition to those two games, I also got plenty of other PS3 games at the same time. I played InFamous very little; I tried it out and [...]

Review: The Saboteur

April 30, 2011 // 1 Comment

The Saboteur (Xbox 360, Playstation 3 [Reviewed], PC) Developer: Pandemic Studios Publisher: Electronic Arts Genre(s): Open World, Third Person Shooter, Action Released: December 8, 2009 ESRB Rating: M- Mature The Saboteur is a World War 2 game, yet one that isn’t boring and worn out. Instead of being a first person shooter reliving the same battles again and again, Saboteur is a third person shooter taking place in Nazi occupied Paris, France. Instead of being a member of one of the Allied military’s, you play as a mechanic turned race car driver named Sean Devlin, who joins the [...]
