Gears of War 2's Problems

Spoiler Warning (for Gears of War 2 and Metal Gear Solid 4)

That is what I am here for, to reach inside Gears' metaphorical chest, rip out the bad, disgusting bloody gibs, and present them to you to scrutinize. Usually I find this difficult with overall quality games, but Gears like to wear its flaws on its chest, right next to all of the fun times.

Prince of Persia Review

What happens when a successful series closes its final chapter, yet it continues on? Well in most cases the "final chapter" is either completely ignored, prequels are born, or everything takes place way later on with different characters (Star Trek, Friday the 13th, Star Wars, Twilight, etc.).

Dead Space Review

    As technology progresses, it seems that it has become more and more difficult to create a truly frightening video game without back stepping into the old mechanics that made those few classic examples the terrifying experiences the way they were. In comes Dead Space, a brand new property from EA Redwood Shores that attempts to modernize the game play without losing that scary feel.

Rock Band 2 Review

It's been one year since I finally got to "live" my dream of becoming a rock star. Now I sit here with a new set of drums in the corner, a shiny new guitar leaning up against the wall, and a, pretty much exactly the same, microphone on the floor. Oh Rock Band, you draw me in and never want to let go.
