InFamous 2 Review

June 9, 2011 // 5 Comments

The end of Sucker Punch’s 2009 smash hit InFamous let everyone know that a sequel was coming because when the first one was over, you knew that everything you as Cole had just went through was in preparation for a much larger battle to come: a battle against the Beast. You don’t have to wait long to battle the Beast either, as [...]

Red Dead Redemption: Undead Nightmare Review

May 22, 2011 // 5 Comments

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 eight hours depending on [...]

L.A. Noire Review

May 19, 2011 // 11 Comments

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, [...]

InFamous Review

May 7, 2011 // 11 Comments

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 [...]

The Saboteur Review

April 30, 2011 // 1 Comment

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 [...]

Mafia II Review

April 25, 2011 // 3 Comments

Mafia 2 is a linear story-based third person shooter that just happens to have a pretty big city as a backdrop. Those looking for a grand sandbox experience, or thriving open world, won’t find it here. The city of Empire Bay is open for exploration, and you’ll certainly spend a decent amount of time driving around the city. The problem [...]

Red Dead Redemption Review

April 20, 2011 // 3 Comments

If a film buff asked me to describe The Good, The Bad, and The Ugly in one word, that word would be “Epic.” And if you want one word from me that describes Red Dead Redemption, well then it would also be “Epic.” Everything about Red Dead Redemption is as close to perfect as one can get. The story, the gameplay, the open-world, the [...]

Just Cause 2 Review

April 17, 2011 // 2 Comments

Just Cause 2 might be the only game I ever recommend ignoring the story of to just play and have fun. The reason the story should be avoided is because it isn’t very good. The writing is bad, the voice-overs are bad, hell even the cut scenes are laughable. Everything that would usually draw you into the world and make you care about the [...]
