The Great Escape

Game Description: You will command four unique soldiers, each with their own skills, strengths, and stories through their capture, escape, and vengeance in the heart of the evil Nazi empire. Use advanced espionage skills in stealth missions, a wide variety of weapons in combat sorties, and a huge array of authentic vehicles in your fight for freedom. Superstar Steve McQueen is digitally resurrected for the fistfights, shootouts, and vehicular mayhem of this WWII classic. You are the new mastermind in this saga of indomitable spirit and daring heroism, can you pull off The Great Escape?

The Great Escape – Review

Considering that the source material is a venerable classic of dramatic filmmaking, a game based on the 1963 masterpiece The Great Escape seems overdue. It possesses all of the drama, humanity, and suspense to make an engaging videogame (as long as a few liberties are taken with the plot, of course).

Tom Clancy's Splinter Cell: Pandora Tomorrow – Second Opinion

But in spite of all the nifty light effects and techno-doodads the game sports, the core experience is still the same rigid, unconvincing formula it was the last time around. Splinter Cell: Pandora Tomorrow's single player mode has some great moments, but for every great one, there are three or four that are pretty lame.

Tenchu: Wrath of Heaven – Second Opinion

The Tenchu series may not contain the best stealth ever devised, but it's certainly near the top. When the first game debuted in 1998, I was blown away by its sneaky gameplay, the freedom to roam rooftops, and bloody assassinations.

Tenchu: Wrath of Heaven – Review

Back in '98 there was what could only be described as a "stealth boom." Three games came out that year that, apparently by coincidence, all featured sneaking as their main gameplay and subsequently ushered in the age of stealth gaming.

Tom Clancy's Splinter Cell – Second Opinion

The ultimate example of a difficult game to review, Tom Clancy's Splinter Cell possesses the best of what modern videogames offer as well as some of the worst from the past. Unfortunately in this case, the bad clearly outweighs the good and prevents the game from reaching its full (and considerable) potential.

Sly Cooper And The Thievius Raccoonus – Second Opinion

My overall reaction to Sly Cooper was almost the same as James, the difference being that I enjoyed the game just a bit more than he did. Sly Cooper certainly isn't the most original or innovative platformer to come along in recent memory, but it's one of the few titles that really stand out in my mind. In keeping with the 'thieving' theme, the developers at Sucker Punch went about 'stealing' all sorts of good ideas from Metal Gear Solid and infused them into one of the most charming new platformers to come out this year.

Tom Clancy's Splinter Cell – Review

But for the first time ever, the developers of Tom Clancy's Splinter Cell have tamed light and shadow to not only present the most groundbreaking lighting effects in videogame history, but to have it do their bidding. And they have effectively used light and shadow within the gameplay elements, validating the hard work and beauty of the game.
