Mass Effect 3 DLC: Citadel Review

It's a tough call here. On the one hand, it is immune to review, and has a lot of positives. On the other, you'd think you'd get more from DLC that comes out so late in the game.

Cars 2 XBOX Review

Oddly given something of a beating by a lot of critics, one thing is clear about Cars 2 The Movie, it was something of a more “grown up” affair. While retaining a certain amount of goofiness and tomfoolery, it was a kind of animated homage to not only Bond films, but spy capers of an earlier age. It had the usual animated elements, and was certainly fun for kids, but a real appreciatio...

L.A. Noire Xbox Review

L.A. Noire is without question a major step in the video gaming industry. The trouble with that statement is that a lot of things can be major steps, without quite being a place to put your foot down in themselves. The production was clearly a massive undertaking, and it shows in the superb look and feel of the game. Actors were filmed using state-of-the-art technology, not simply to film motion-c...

Yoostar 2 Review

Yoostar 2 bills itself as a party game, and if anything was ever the perfect idea for something to leave running as guests float in and out of the game, this is it. Something along the lines of Karaoke for film, Yoostar 2 lets you select a movie scene, and put yourself in it, delivering famous lines, or reinventing favorite scenes from scratch. While many may see this as an instant decision, I wou...

Alan Wake Review XBOX

If it were up to me, Alan Wake would, in a variety of ways, represent the future of gaming. A new standard in immersive gameplay, the title has you playing as author Alan Wake during a vacation gone horribly wrong, and events unfold with the style and suspense of a television show. In fact, the game is broken up into episodes, and as you progress to the next installment, a “Last Time on Alan...

Wii Fit Plus Review

It’s gotten to the point now where we are just about spoiled for choice when it comes to fitness titles for the Wii. Once Wii Fit and the balance board hit shelves, the fitness possibilities started popping up everywhere. Right now there must be around 15 to choose from, and more are on the way. Now there’s Wii Fit Plus, with several upgrades to the original, and it’s getting dif...

G. I. Joe: The Rise Of Cobra – The Game Wii Review

Video game titles spawned from movies rarely manage to hold my attention for more than a few minutes.  Even some of the best efforts are either bizarrely difficult in odd ways (almost anything Disney), or just aren’t all that fun once the initial experience wears off.  I’m not sure where everyone will put G. I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra – The Game in their spectrum, but I find it a ...

Wizard 101 – An Online Adventure Game For The Whole Family

If you’re familiar with online, multi-user games such as World of Warcraft, Wizard 101 is a lot easier to explain.  It’s like that, only aimed at a younger crowd… and everyone is a wizard.  The main page of Wizard 101 is here, and you can watch several videos at their site here. The game is specifically designed for the gap between games for the very young and those that are too ...

Spore – Taking You Where No Sim Has Gone Before

Spore has finally hit the marketplace, and it looks like it is on the way to becoming just the sort of massive explosion predicted.  Looking for a way to branch out from the Sims franchise, which has sucked people in for years, and never seems to stop releasing add-ons, EA has moved away from mere people and created something like a life-in-general sim. You start Spore as a mere cell thrust forth ...
