Killzone 2

Sony’s heavy hitter comes out swinging for the fences. Did you know the equipment soldiers have to carry on the battlefield is heavy? No other game I have played has ever given off the sense of that fact quite like Killzone 2. The immense weight of your character is clearly displayed. From the sway of your gun when you enter and exit cover, to the shifting your character makes while running ...[Read More]

Resident Evil 5

Capcom delivers another fantastic chapter in the Resident Evil universe. Classic horror series Resident Evil can only be reinvented so many times and no, this is not a reinvention of the series like Resident Evil 4 was, but it is still an awesome game that every fan of the series should play. Some people may be put off by the controls, but anyone who sticks with it should find them very well made ...[Read More]

Grand Theft Auto IV: The Lost and Damned

The definition of how to do DLC. “The Almighty forgives, The Lost don’t.” A story of revenge, treachery, controversy, dirty politicians, and, most importantly, Brotherhood, the Lost and Damned tells the tale of a biker gang losing itself with a corrupt leader, a reinvigorated gang war, and a backstabbing underling. Once again Rockstar has managed to craft a tale that’s intr...[Read More]

Grand Theft Auto: Chinatown Wars

Crime in the palm of your hand. The GTA series has always pushed the limit of what is possible on whatever system it’s on, and this outing is no different. What the guys at Rockstar achieved on the DS is amazing. A big open environment, a sweet art-style, lots of action, and about 8 hours worth of gameplay are all packed in that little DS card. For this particular handheld outing, Rockstar d...[Read More]

Halo Wars

Easily the greatest console RTS released to date. Commanding multiple units in the wide open battles native to the Halo series is a really good idea. Halo originally started out as a real-time strategy, and it’s a great thing that Ensemble took that idea and made the game a reality. Halo Wars is a console only real-time strategy, and for most just the idea of that drives them crazy, but Halo...[Read More]

Space Invaders Extreme

A classic re-invented. Space Invaders Extreme tries to take the old school gameplay of Space Invaders and re-invigorate it with new mechanics and other additions, and for the most part it succeeds wonderfully. Everyone, whether or not you played the old Space Invaders, can really dig into and enjoy this version, if you’re willing to get beat down again and again. The only real problem for Sp...[Read More]

Scribblenauts

A clever take on the genre. Scribblenauts has some of the biggest aspirations of any game this year. The concept being “Write Anything, Solve Everything” something, unfortunately, had to give. As what will probably go down as a lot of people’s disappointment of the year, Scribblenauts definitely has some problems, but it’s not all bad. Scribblenauts is all about freedom. On...[Read More]

BioShock 2

The return to Rapture is a surprisingly pleasant one. The first Bioshock is now considered a modern classic, one of those games that took everyone by surprise with its’ amazing story and rich atmosphere. The second Bioshock is the sequel nobody wanted but we got anyway because it made sense on some financial reports. Bearing the weight of how amazing the first game was and how not wanted the...[Read More]

Watchmen: The End is Nigh

As it turns out, we watch the Watchmen. Watchmen has been touted as the most celebrated graphic novel of all time, and while the videogame won’t quit reach that height it can still be a lot of fun. Operating as a standard beat-em up in the old days of videogames would have gotten the game lost in a sea of clones, but today it actually makes it stand out as something most gamers will enjoy pl...[Read More]
