Game: Company of Heroes (Miscellaneous)
Posted: December 03, 2006 (08:05 PM)
Your boat arrives at the sandy shore, but what awaits for many is death. Every enemy is ready, guns at their side. The crashing of waves is drowned out by immense fire, bullets flying everywhere. What was once your best friend is now a blood ridden corpse. But you and your comrades push forward with determination. Your infantry uses all the tricks up their sleeves - flanking from various directions, calling in artillery fire. What seems like days of fighting finally ends, and you are victorious....

Game: Gears of War (Xbox 360)
Posted: December 02, 2006 (07:25 PM)
If you take a look at the ol' recipe for success in the video game cookbook, you'll be sure to find excessive violence, chaotic action, and incredible graphics. Gears of War of manages to include all of these ingredients, from blood splatting across the screen to intense battle sequences against a horde of foes. And the graphics...well, they speak for themselves; anyone who doesn't think the game looks impressive needs to get their eyes checked. Along with these key elements, Epic Games throws i...

Game: Chrono Trigger (SNES)
Posted: September 17, 2006 (05:46 PM)
Ever had the longing to travel through time? If so, you probably found it difficult; due to the fact most donít know how to build a time machine. But donít let your head hang in sorrow, there is one alternative. You could just play one of the greatest RPGs to ever grace video games. Vortexes and the space continuum may seem more appealing, but donít let those thoughts deceive you. Chrono Trigger managed to revolutionize role-playing games, and stands the test of time to this day.

Game: MVP Baseball 2005 (Xbox)
Posted: September 04, 2006 (11:17 AM)
Americas pastime - baseball. Oh what great memories you bring. Going out to the ballpark with oneís dad, the sensation of catching a foul ball...steroids. Okay, maybe the latter isnít something to reminisce, but who doesnít love a good hot dog and ball game? The MLB has been plagued by recent accusation, but thatís not apparent in a virtual simulation. So why not try out the alternative of MVP Baseball 2005? The game may seem as though itís on performance enhancing drugs, but thatís not the case...

Game: Burnout 3: Takedown (PlayStation 2)
Posted: August 05, 2006 (08:43 PM)
In the world of Burnout 3, people cringe at the thought of using car insurance. Imagine a virtual reality where speeding doesnít get you a ticket and crashing your car is a goal. This is Burnout 3: Takedown. In a market of street racers and driving simulations, Burnout 3 stands out among the crowd. Through fusing different types of game modes, it finds that middle ground, providing a breath of fresh air. Thereís no complicated customization or tuning to worry about, just driving wildly. This pro...

Game: The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion (Miscellaneous)
Posted: July 26, 2006 (07:10 PM)
Fiery portals to hell, evil demons, dark princes, oh my Alright, now that I have your attention, itís time for Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion. Bethesda hit a home run in 2002 with Elder Scrolls III: Morrowind. It offered this huge adventure, giving you total freedom in a gorgeous fantasy land. Fans were eagerly anticipating the next installment in the series, but after three years people were getting a little impatient. Four years later Oblivion has arrived, and it was well worth the wait. By takin...

Game: Shadow of the Colossus (PlayStation 2)
Posted: July 13, 2006 (08:42 PM)
With the release of ICO in 2001, a hidden gem emerged out of nowhere. With the game mainly consisting of escorting a young lady around with various puzzles and little combat, the word that may come to the mind of some is ďboring.Ē But this is not true. It was a truly original concept, and it showed that not everything needs to be about blowing away enemies in first person shooters or managing an army in strategy games. This has been carried over to Shadow of the Colossus, with many characteristi...

Game: Indigo Prophecy (Xbox)
Posted: July 13, 2006 (08:38 PM)
Every year many games come out that are great, but donít really bring anything new to the table. They may do many things right, but theyíre missing something: innovation. With Indigo Prophecy, that is not the case. With highly original concepts that are executed very well, and a game that puts its story and characters above everything else, developer Quantic Dream has succeeded in making a game that sets itself apart from any other one out there. It may not be perfect, but itís something that sh...

Game: F.E.A.R.: First Encounter Assault Recon (Miscellaneous)
Posted: July 13, 2006 (08:35 PM)
Through the years, there have been all kinds of first person shooters released. There's the usual formula of a good combination of guns with some fast-paced action, and so on. But with F.E.A.R, Sierra has created something new. It's combined the aspects of a Japanese horror film with exciting and frantic action to create one of the best FPSs out there.

Game: Guitar Hero (PlayStation 2)
Posted: July 08, 2006 (09:34 PM)
The life of a rock star: full of money, alcohol, and all out partying. Guitar Hero may not be able to provide the fun of passing out drunk on the floor, but it certainly captures the feel of rock in a video game. With all kinds of musical tracks and one of the coolest gaming peripherals, Guitar Hero makes you feel like youíre on that stage, with thousands of screaming fans going crazy. Well, as long as you donít look at yourself in the mirror. Anyone who is willing to fork over the extra $20 wil...

Game: Sly 3: Honor Among Thieves (PlayStation 2)
Posted: February 07, 2006 (06:38 PM)
The Jak and Daxter and Ratchet and Clank series come to mind when most gamers think of the best platformers over the last few years. Along the way, the Sly Cooper series somehow didnít get as much attention. The original Sly Cooper was a fun concept that was executed well, with a good story and some engaging characters. The sequel came along and added to the formula to make it much better. With the latest installment in the series, Sly 3: Honor Among Thieves, the developers at Sucker Punch have ...
