Freedom Fighters – Review

One school of thought says that videogames are pure entertainment, nothing more, nothing less. Taking a different view, some suggest that the power of a well-crafted interactive experience can be more significant than an afternoon of frivolous distraction. The answer likely lies somewhere in between, but for any game, it's important to consider the content and the context in which it is couched.

Freedom Fighters

Game Description: Freedom: The Battle for Liberty Island is set in a world where the Soviet Union won the Cold War. Now a fierce conflict is beginning to unfold in the streets of America. Red Army troops are pouring across the borders of Mexico and Canada shortly after a nuclear missile is unleashed on Washington D.C. Chaos sets in when breaking news informs Americans that their President has been killed and the Russians have invaded the country. Players take on the role of a blue-collar worker who evolves into a charismatic and fearless freedom fighter obsessed with finding and freeing his brother, who has been taken hostage along with other New Yorkers by the Soviets. You must recruit and lead an army of urban guerillas to take on the Soviet threat in the streets of New York City.

Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic Second Opinion

Before the hate mail starts coming in for giving it an eight, let me say that Star Wars: Knights Of The Old Republic is a good videogame. It's doubly good on the Xbox, since it's the only substantial role-playing game for Microsoft's machine outside of The Elder Scrolls III: Morrowind, Metal Dungeon, and possibly Pirates Of The Caribbean, though it's safe to say that they all stray from what one usually expects of a console RPG. However, would I call it a great game? I guess that would depend on your love of the Star Wars license.

Rayman 3: Hoodlum Havoc – Second Opinion

It's odd. The platforming genre hasn't seen much in the way of innovation lately. Super Mario 64 wrote most of the rules of 3D platforming, and just about everything that came after followed those rules rather diligently. But despite this, I think the last couple years have been a renaissance of sorts for the genre.

Silent Hill 3 – Consumer Guide

According to ESRB, this game contains: Blood and Gore, Violence

Silent Hill 3 – Review

Horror is a delicate thing. You can't just set your game in a spooky house, toss in a few monsters with lots of teeth, and expect players to be terrified. Horror—real horror—is more fragile than that. It breaks easily. It requires expert care to grow into something that can touch us on our most primal level.

Silent Hill 3

Game Description: As a teenage girl named Heather, players must explore and unravel the mysterious connection between the god-forsaken town, her past, and her inner fears. With enhanced graphics detail, a more complex storyline, and even more grotesque monsters than the previous games, Silent Hill 3 promises to be the best horror adventure ever.

The Lord of the Rings: Fellowship of the Ring – Second Opinion

Mike really hit the nail on the head when it comes to most of the game's problems. In fact, if anything, he didn't go far enough when it came to the shortcomings with the game's combat system. This game features one of the most ill-conceived targeting systems I've ever encountered.

Praetorians – Review

As an historical RTS, Praetorians does an admirable job of integrating its subject matter with solid gameplay, as opposed to simply using the historical period as a backdrop for a slew of war scenarios.

Praetorians – Consumer Guide

 According to ESRB, this game contains: Violence.
