Gears of War 2 Review

Gears of War 2 is the follow-up to the enormously successful pop-n-stop shooter Gears of War. Developed by Epic Games and touted as “Bigger, Badder, and more Badass,” Gears of War 2 delivers with the same addictive gameplay and spectacular graphics, but its blemishes are more visible this time around. Gameplay: 9.5/10 The gameplay really […]

Rock Band 2 Review

Rock Band 2 doesn’t mess with their original formula. They’ve made some much needed improvements to band setup and the menus, gotten rid of the broken “play songs in this order” single player modes and added in a multi-tiered challenge mode along with a Battle of the Bands Online component. There’s also the 84 tracks […]

Saints Row 2 Review

Saints Row 2 is the sequel to the popular GTA clone, Saints Row by Volition. It picks up right where the first one left off, with your character waking up from a coma after an explosion ended the first game with a literal bang. New gamers shoudn’t worry because SR2’s story is entirely self-contained (all […]

The Force: Unleashed Review

The Force: Unleashed is the latest game from Lucas Arts and takes place between Episodes III and IV. The game uses the Euphoria Engine along with the standard Havok Physics. The game sets you in the shoes of Darth Vader’s secret apprentice and has you traipsing across the galaxy in standard 3rd player action fare, […]

Mercenaries 2: World in Flames Review

Mercenaries 2: World in Flames is the highly anticipated sequel to Pandemic’s Mercenaries. Too bad, Mercenaries 2 disappoints in a big way. In fact, I was left wondering if Mercs 1 was really as good as I remembered it. Gameplay: 7/10Pros: The much touted destructable environment is pretty sweet. The controls are good, blasting things […]

Soul Calibur 4 Review

Soul Calibur IV is the 4th installment in Namco’s (superior) fighting series. The differences betweent the Xbox 360 and PS3 revolve around the Star Wars Characters present. Xbox is good and has Yoda and apparently the Playstation is evil and has Darth Vader. The PS3 wins in the end because it has the ability to […]

GRID Mini Review

GRID by Codemasters is the asphalt successor of DIRT. It even runs on the same graphical engine and has a “hip” 4 letter title too. I have no idea what the title means, but I do know that Grid is a very enjoyable racer which blends elements of sim and arcade racers and toes the […]

Grand Theft Auto IV Game Review

Grand Theft Auto IV is now the biggest release in Interactive Entertainment, beating out Halo 3 by over 200 million in sales in the first week. It marks the first next-gen installment of the game and has been in development for well over 3 years. Was all of the extra time worth it? It is […]

Dark Sector Review

Dark Sector is a blatant Gears of War clone that gets stale by the end. It shouldn’t be a surprise since Dark Sector’s development has taken it all over the place (original trailers showed the game taking place in outerspace).Gameplay: 7.5/10Pros: Plays just as good as Gears and introduces a pretty fun twist with the […]

Devil May Cry 4 Review

[youtube=]Devil May Cry 4 is a very solid entry into the Devil May Cry universe. It doesn’t suck like DMC2 did, though it is significantly easier than DMC1 and DMC3. Dante’s styles return and you can change styles at any time during gameplay…which is fantastic. Nero is an ok addition and plays drastically different than […]
