You may have experienced life as a space marine, stealth assassin, special agent or even life as a scantily clad woman, but have you been just an “ordinary man”? Naughty Dog’s Uncharted: Drake’s Fortune places you in this very role of being an ordinary man, named Nathan Drake, who happens to be the descendent of famous English explorer, Sir Francis Drake. While Drake lacks the military training of a hardened marine and the finesse of ninja, he somehow embarks on quite the pulp action adventure starring pirates, mercenaries, booby traps and bottomless pits. The prize of this adventure: the lost treasure of El Dorado.
I have played Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare on various platforms including the XBOX 360 (multiplayer beta), PC (single player demo) and Nintendo DS (for S&Gs). In the end, the only version I had my eyes on was the PS3 version for the primary reason of free online play since I do not have XBOX Live! Gold. Did it live up to my hopes? Definitely.
Dear Assassin’s Creed,
Your reviews have been generally good by the likes of MetaCritic and GameRankings, but those you have disappointed have been rather vocal about your lackluster performance and premature arrival. You have your defenders whom I respect and thanks to the likes them, I have given you a chance and picked you up along with Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare for $89.99 from BestBuy. I wanted to see for myself if you lived up to the hype and the potential you instilled a few years back. Despite my gut feeling after the disappointing E3 2007 demonstration, I still held a glimmer of hope for you. Well, the game was released and I took the time to finish it and to be honest my impression of you has not changed; I still see potential in you despite your numerous flaws.
