Psychotoxic

Game Description: PsychoToxic places gamers in the shoes of heroine Angie Prophet who, unbeknownst to her, must save humankind from impending nuclear Armageddon. The year is 2022, the place is New York City, and as Angie's role as savior unfolds, so too does her understanding of why she is the only one that stands in the way of the Fourth Horseman of the Apocalypse and the destruction of civilization. Throughout the game, Angie continues to discover a series of unique abilities, such as invisibility, the slowing of time, and the infiltration of other's dreams, all of which aid her progress.

Psychotoxic – Review

It's June 2005, and I've just finished playing a videogame where my only interaction with the level was when I was asked—non-ironically, mind you—to find a series of color-coded keycards to open a series of doors. I could stop the review right here, and anyone who knows anything about First Person Shooters would know all they needed to about the game. For those who don't consider themselves aficionados of the genre, however, I'll continue, and try to point out all of the other things that Psychotoxic does wrong.

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

Prince of Persia: Warrior Within – Second Opinion

I'll have to admit that I approached Warrior Within with a great degree of hesitancy. I was absolutely head-over-heels in love with the first game, and I still view it as one of the greatest revivals of the current (and soon-to-be-over) era.

Lego Star Wars – Review

Okay, in my defense, I didn't realize that it was a children's game. I can't say whether it's a testament to Lego's enduring popularity as the world's greatest toy, or my own fundamental lack of maturity, but when I first looked at the box on the videogame store shelf, it didn't occur to me that Lego Star Wars could have possibly been made for anyone other than me specifically.

Doom 3 – Second Opinion

It's the exponential progression of these things that bothers me most. Ever since the original Doom, the majority of First Person Shooters (FPS) have followed an incredibly strict formula: The hero begins the game with a ridiculously underpowered weapon, and is besieged by an army of enemies that can be just barely killed by that first weapon (it's challenging enough that each enemy put down feels like something of an accomplishment).

Need for Speed: Underground 2

Game Description: Enter the world of urban street racing and high performance tuner cars with the latest title in the hit Need for Speed series, Need for Speed: Underground 2. Take on today's most popular tuner cars from Mitsubishi Motors, Subaru, Toyota and many more, building the ultimate street machine by earning cash to pay for custom body kits and a host of licensed car performance mods. But just creating a custom street racing machine will not get you to the top; it takes a certain amount of attitude and razor sharp driving skills to compete in the tough world of urban racing.

Need For Speed: Underground 2 – Review

It comes down to balance and harmony of the formula elements, and the Need for Speed Underground series has been the Zen master. The sequel, Need for Speed: Underground 2, continues the success of its predecessor and gets so many things right that after awhile I lost count and basked in gaming nirvana.
