Gran Turismo 4 – Review

I always enjoy it when I'm able to learn something about myself when playing a game. It can be something as simple as, "Gee, throwing people through windows sure is fun," or as complex as "in a post-Cold War world, I'm more than a little uncomfortable playing a game where I shoot Russian soldiers." If Gran Turismo 4 taught me one thing, it's that I'd be quite a good driver if it wasn't for all those corners.

World Tour Soccer 2006 – Review

There's a crucial choice that every game based on real-world sports has to make. That choice is whether the game will aspire to simulating the real-world sport as closely as possible or whether to create an entertaining gameplay system that calls to mind a sport without really hewing close to the reality of it.

God of War – Second Opinion

Instantly accessible and consistently thrilling, God of War represents a truly great achievement in action game design—a game that within minutes of pressing the start button has players ripping undead soldiers in half, tearing the wings off harpies, and subduing giant hydras through sheer brute force. Though not a groundbreaking game, it is a visually and aurally exciting one, and stands as arguably the most outstanding example of its kind.

Pursuit Force – Second Opinion

I have to say that I expected to like Pursuit Force more than I did. I've been spending the majority of my gaming time on portables lately, and I don't like it when a handheld game tries to get too heavy. More often than not, I'm twiddling my thumbs between job assignments or I might be somewhere with only short bursts of free time.

Untold Legends: Brotherhood of the Blade – Review

I like hack-and-slash games just as much as the next guy, maybe even more so. It's a very simple, straightforward genre that hasn't advanced very much since its inception. The basic rules and formula were set up long ago, and mostly hold true to this day because there's something very compelling about constantly battling off hordes of advancing monsters while finding new, shiny pieces of armor among the entrails. Still, despite the lack of sophistication and basic structure necessary to create a game in this genre, Sony Online's PSP entry Untold Legends: Brotherhood of the Blade is a perfect example of how even the most basic formula can be royally screwed up.
