Skate 2 Review

February 12, 2009

The original Skate was considered a savior to the skateboarding genre of video games two years ago when the Tony Hawk franchise was fading out. Its innovative controls and being a better representation of the skateboarding lifestyle gave new life to the genre and fans of the sport as well. Two years later, the sequel […]

Lord of the Rings: Conquest Review

February 9, 2009

      Every year’s end is a fantastic time to be playing games. The market contains a nearly endless supply of high quality titles to keep a busy gamer playing until the beginning of the new year. After enjoying high profile titles like Fallout 3, Banjo Kazooie: Nuts & Bolts, and Left 4 Dead, […]

Afro Samurai Review

February 9, 2009

                      Games based on existing properties are typically below the bar, and are glorified advertisements. Afro Samurai is a hack & slash gore fest Ninja Gaiden wannabe showing a lot of potential, and eventually crumbles under stupid mechanical issues. You play as Afro (appropriate name), […]

Knothole Island DLC Review

February 9, 2009

      It was only a matter of time before Lionhead would backup its flagship game with some hot new DLC. The first of what is promised to be several different pieces of downloadable content is called Knothole Island. This package offers a quest line, which should take you anywhere from 2-4 hours to […]

Interpool: The Trial of DR. Chaos Review

February 9, 2009

      Interpol: The Trail of Dr. Chaos is a simple point and click game, in which your task is to find pointless items in a mess. So does this game have any purpose being on the Arcade? Imagine a room with a giant clutter of crap, like, umbrellas, computers, clocks, and so on. […]

Braid Review

February 9, 2009

  Some would say Braid is a bit pretentious, and it is but who cares, I enjoyed every minute of Johnathen Blow’s Braid; including the many instances staring at a puzzle and cursing my television loudly because I was too stupid to get it instantly. Puzzle solving fun a la Portal in terms of unique […]

Mercenaries 2 review

February 9, 2009

      Mercenaries 2 is simply about blowing shit up, end of story. For anyone who’s played the first game, should come expecting the same type of game, just on steroids. The playground of destruction your dropped in is almost completely destructible, and it’s your job to finish your mission in anyway you see […]

Condemned 2: Bloodshot review

February 9, 2009

      If faced against a psychopathic meth addict would you be willing to beat him down with a riped off toilet seat, or smash his face into a meat grinder? If you answered yes, then you might be prepared to drop down in Monolith’s latest horror entry, Condemned 2: Bloodshot. The sequel to […]

Mario Kart Wii Review

February 9, 2009

        Mario Galaxy aside, Nintendo doesn’t seem willing to reinvent their blockbuster brands, but merely remaking them for the current generation. Between hit titles such as Twilight Princess, Super Smash Bros. Brawl, Metroid Prime 3, and so on, fans of these franchises got high quality titles, but also got exactly what they […]
