Robert Ludlum's The Bourne Conspiracy – Review

Read review of Robert Ludlum's The Bourne ConspiracyI can't believe this game was developed by High Moon Studios. Two levels in I stopped the game, went back to the Xbox Dashboard and reloaded to make sure I'd seen what I thought I saw. Yes, it was made by the same people who made Darkwatch. What did I learn? That while a development studio's previous work can usually be a good predictor of their performance in the future, just because some developers turned out a terrible game doesn't mean that they won't turn around and make a fantastic one the next time out.

Robert Ludlum's The Bourne Conspiracy

Game Description: You are the perfect weapon. You are Jason Bourne. Robert Ludlum's best-selling spy novels and blockbuster film adaptations have thrilled millions. Now become Ludlum's most famous spy Jason Bourne, going deeper than ever into his world of espionage and conspiracy. A signature Jason Bourne video game experience is born in an original title fusing the viscous tension and depth of the novels with the aggressive style and frenetic action of the films.

The Portable Project 12 – M.A.C.H.: Modified Air Combat Heroes

M.A.C.H. is one of those unfortunate games that sport impressive production values, smart design and a good difficulty curve without ever getting any traction at retail. Heck, I don't even know another PSP owner who's considered playing it, let alone brought it home from a shop. It's too bad really, because past the generic-looking box art and incredibly dull title, there's a pretty sweet experience to be had.

No One Lives Forever – Review

Personally, I don't believe in the adage that women need to be better than all the men around them in order to be accepted. By having a few chinks in her armour, Cate remains true to life...maybe even a bonafide Female Role Model.

Half-Life Second Opinion

Anyone who reads GameCritics.com regularly will know that I'm not a big fan of first-person shooter (FPS) games. I don't hate them, but I don't think it's particularly fun to just run around and blast things, either. Most of the games tend to be very repetitious and unimaginative, and the genre has rarely captured my attention. Being the non-fragger that I am, I was particularly interested to check out Half-Life.

Half-Life Review

Trying to gauge which game was the first to blur the line between game and movie is a daunting task (and one sure to inspire more than a few arguments). However, the game that tends to stand out as one of the first to do it effectively is Half-Life—a classic PC game that is now making its debut on the PlayStation 2 gaming console.

Half-Life

Game Description: Half-Life features an integrated storyline with stunning visual effects and a huge, sprawling environment filled with aliens determined to hunt you down and kill you. You no longer just point and shoot—Half-Life is a dynamic, plot-driven, complex world where you need to play smart to survive. Monsters have a strong instinct for self-preservation. They will duck, jump, hide behind barriers to avoid gunfire, and even retreat if feeling threatened. Superior AI drives these behaviors and they are different for each species. Plus you can choose from 18 different weapons, ranging from a crowbar to laser-guided rockets.
