Peter Jackson's King Kong – Review

The game is just wonderfully average most of the time, which given the history of games based on films should actually be enough to earn this title praise. The only problem is that expectations were raised for this title thanks to the presence of legendary game developer Michel Ancel. Ancel, who's made games like the Rayman titles and the criminally underrated Beyond Good and Evil brought a certain amount of expectation along with him when he took over this project—and unfortunately, only some of those expectations are actually realized in the finished product.

America's Army: Rise of a Soldier – Review

There's something despicable about this game. Something unsettling. As I played through it, I found it bothered me more and more. The limits of technology and control devices ensure that games can only be so realistic. Players understand this restriction, and generally only ask games to be as realistic as their settings require. What unsettles me about this game is that the gameplay is nowhere near as realistic as its setting requires it to be.

Prince of Persia: The Two Thrones – Review

It's been a long road for the Prince of Persia. Coming from out of nowhere to score a smash reinvention after years of lying fallow, the masterful Sands of Time was both a surprise and a pleasure. The sophomore followup, Warrior Within, was an effort that was structurally admirable, but left many cold with darker aesthetics and harsher tone. Unlike some developers, Ubisoft must have been paying attention to the unhappy comments because this third iteration, The Two Thrones, is a solid return to the form and style that made so many sit up and take notice.

Prince of Persia: The Two Thrones

Game Description: Prince of Persia: Two Thrones picks up the incredible action and adventure of the series with an all-new chapter. The Prince has returned from his adventures with his love, Kaileena. Instead of the peace that he longs for, he finds his homeland ravaged by war and the kingdom turned against him. The Prince is captured and Kaileena has no choice but to sacrifice herself and unleash the Sands of Time to save him. Now a fugitive, the Prince discovers that past battles have given rise to a deadly Dark Prince, whose spirit gradually possesses him.

Far Cry Instincts – Review

First-person shooters are such a by-the-numbers genre that it's a welcome breath of fresh air when a developer incorporates some genuinely unique elements to differentiate its game from the run-and-gun style that even the best shooters complacently settle into. Such is the case with Far Cry Instincts. Not to be mistaken as a direct port of last year's PC original Far Cry, Instincts is an original game that is essentially a heavily altered version of the PC game.

Far Cry Instincts

Game Description: Far Cry: Instincts is a complete reworking of the hit action game. As Jack Carver, outlast a brutal tropical wilderness and a legion of elite mercenaries by unleashing every imaginable survival tactic and combat skill. It's open season in a 100% open environment: Do whatever it takes to exterminate the mercenaries in any situation.
