The Thing – Review

With the dawning of online play for consoles this year, a big selling point is that players will get the chance to interact with live people for an increased human element in games. The idea has merit, but in my opinion videogames that take place offline haven't done more than scratch the surface of offering similar experiences through simulation and programming.

Deus Ex: The Conspiracy – Review

A bum walks up to me and begs for me to kill him. Because its just a game, I shoot him in the face, and then he screams and falls dead. That is a scenario that would be described by some people as funny, especially with the unattractive character models, unrealistic blood and in a post-Grand Theft Auto III context.

NHL 2002 – Second Opinion

I agree with Mike that NHL 2002 is the closest you can get to the actual game of hockey on a console to date. But Im not sure that the game entirely succeeds in bringing the game of hockey to a videogame. Its close, but no cigar.

Deus Ex: The Conspiracy – Consumer Guide

According to ESRB, this game contains: Enter content descriptors here, but unbold the text (leave teaser empty if there are no descriptors)

Thought Processing: Consoles Online, Yea or Nay?

Welcome to "Thought Processing", a new feature here at GameCritics.com. The goal of this series is to raise issues, start discussion and hopefully get you thinking in new ways about topics relevant to today’s gamers.

Dead To Rights – Review

Despite being rated mature (meaning this game is supposedly for adults), Dead To Rights has no such experience or ambition. It is a mere sheep in wolves clothing that uses only the most socially timid and comfortable clichés like cigarettes-for-trade and prison escape maps to paint a PG-rated teen-friendly novelty amusement park interpretation of prison life.

Enclave – Review

Enclave is a shining example of the original controller breaker games—a title so aggravating due to its poor design that its all but guaranteed to have gamers chucking controllers across the room with frightening regularity. I love a hard game as much as the next guy (maybe even more so—I've been pretty vocal in my disappointment with overly simplistic games), but when the difficulty springs from cheap death, a shoddy combat system, and one of the worst save systems I've seen since the 8-bit days, I think its safe to say we have a game thats a controller breaker for all the wrong reasons.

Dead To Rights – Consumer Guide

According to ESRB, this game contains: Blood, Mature Sexual Themes, Violence

Stuart Little 2 – Consumer Guide

Stuart Little 2 – Review

Parents and children in search of quality game software haven't had an easy time despite the industrys recent boom years. Theres no shortage of inane titles lining shelves with only a cartoon license or television character as the selling point, but these kinds of shovelware arent acceptable. If a game is too simplistic and boring, its hard for parents to maintain interest in their childs activity. If the game isnt very good to begin with, or if the difficulty level isnt keyed in to young ones, the child will get frustrated by the gameplay.
