Gears of War 2 Review

posted in: Reviews 0

Blood splatter obscures the screen. The cringe worthy sound of metal shredding through leathery flesh clashes against the bloodlust scream of a man who can only be described as a “badass”. It’s the scene which many associate with Gears of War – it’s the scene which helped solidify Epic Games original IP as a premier franchise. Gears of War 2 was on my short list of known quantities – I knew it was going to be good, the only question was, “How good?”

Resistance 2 Review

posted in: Reviews 0

I found Resistance: Fall of Man, to be a competent shooter. I didn’t think it was terrible, but it wasn’t a mind blowing experience either. Insomniac Games’ Resistance 2 was poised to improve over its predecessor in every way, and for the most part, it did. An improved single player campaign, a more robust cooperative element and an impressive 60 player online multiplayer component was crammed into a single Blu-ray disc. Despite all of that, is simply being better than Resistance: Fall of Man enough to warrant your hard earned dollars? It depends.

LTTP: Dead Rising

LTTP or ‘late to the party’ pieces are opportunities for us to catch up and write about games we missed out on the first time around. They may contain spoilers.

After the honeymoon weeks with the original Gears of War back in November of 2006, I began looking through the Xbox Live! Marketplace for some new demos. Capcom’s Dead Rising was the first demo I gravitated towards. It reviewed well, but at the time I just didn’t get it and thought it lacked substance. Two years later and I still didn’t get it! For the first few hours, I felt disoriented, lost and clumsy – nothing was working the way I expected. Despite all of that, I managed to complete the game and even enjoyed it. Hell, I even put off starting Fable II to finish the game properly.

SOCOM: Confrontation Headset Bundle “Review”

posted in: Reviews 1

I couldn’t play Slant Six’s SOCOM: Confrontation for more than 40 minutes. Not because it was a bad game. I just couldn’t put my PS3 through the torture of system freezes and consequently, I didn’t want to waste my time with this buggy mess. If you’re a SOCOM fan, you’re not going to find many kind words here. I didn’t purchase the SOCOM: Confrontation headset bundle for SOCOM; I bought it for the official PlayStation headset. This review isn’t for the fans, it’s for those of you who can’t decide whether or not to spend the extra $10 CAD or just save it and pick up the Bluetooth headset by its lonesome. Let’s get started with this “review”. Slant Six and Sony rushed this game out of the door and I’m doing the same for this review.
