Prey – Second Opinion

A port of a PC first-person shooter (FPS), Prey is all about running around and blasting things with a number of different weapons and giggling at the aftermath as heads explode in fountains of blood, bone, and brains.

Tom Clancy's Rainbow Six Vegas – Review

Read review of Rainbow Six VegasWhen I heard about‭ ‬Rainbow Six Vegas,‭ ‬I was justifiably skeptical.‭ Apparently publishers have decided that console gamers can't handle real simulation and strategy, so games have to be dumbed down to reach the broadest possible audience. Fortunately Rainbow Six Vegas is not the bust that Lockdown was; in some ways, it really pulls the franchise back on track and introduces some decent new mechanics.
