  • If you played the first game, Lara Croft and the Guardian of Light (Released in 2010) then you know what is in store for you with this second title from Square Enix & Crystal Dynamics. Four years after the first game was released they now have a sequel called Lara Croft and the Temple of Osiris. Game play is very similar to the first game with a top down view of the...

  • Duke Nukem is an iconic character with that flattop hairdo and his one line quips. This iteration of the character was originally released as a PC game that was then ported over as a Xbox 360 arcade game in 2010. The setting is on the island of Manhattan and a mad scientist named Morphix has his mind set on taking over New York City. The game is classified as...

  • It has been over ten years since I played and completed the first Crackdown game. Starting Crackdown 2 has been a long time coming and it was worth the wait to start collecting orbs again. Ironically the plot of the game takes place ten years after the city was freed of crime with the elimination of the gang Kingpins. In present Pacific City a terrorist organization lead...

  • Crackdown is a signature game for the Xbox 360. It’s an open world that can be explored for hours filled with fun weaponry, vehicles, and agent abilities. Crime has run rampant in Pacific City which is run by three distinct gangs each controlling a certain territory. You are a culmination of all the worlds resources and technology. Turning you into a super...

  • The Vertigo imprint of DC Comics prints more adult non superhero type of comics like John Constantine and Sandman. Another comic book series they published was called Fables. Telltales Games has adapted this series into a chose your own adventure type of game, where your in game choices will effect the outcome of the story. Fables (and this game) revolves around, you...

  • Ryse was indeed a launch title back when the Xbox One was first released, but it wasn’t a next generation type of game by any stretch of the imagination. It didn’t have any groundbreaking or innovative game mechanics to propel it above many of the Xbox 360 games that were released before it. Now the game play is nice and it is fun so I don’t want to bash the game...

  • The Division is like three different games in one. The first part of the game comes in the form of a campaign set in an open world shooter where you explore a winterized New York City after a pandemic has devastated the world. The second part of the game comes in the form of PvP interaction, your multiplayer part of the game. The last part and the best part of...

  • This top down third person shooter is actually really enjoyable. I have played Halo for many of my gaming years. Everything in this version is in miniature (which is kind of cool). The controls feel natural, the environment is well rendered, and it is all highly detailed. Having never see Halo through this perspective it’s the audio cues that will put you...

  • Halo games were slowing killing themselves well before 343 Industries took over. Game release after game release Bungie was slowly degrading the Halo franchise with awful campaigns. By awful campaigns I mean the stories themselves and how they decided to tell them because the game play was always fun. However 343 Industries’ choices were so bad that they killed the franchise...

  • When a Next Generation console is released it also needs to have next games. You can see that jump with older consoles especially in the graphics department. That is not the case now a days. I have even joked in the past when Microsoft was releasing a new Xbox (The S & X versions) each year that it was the most powerful console to run...

  • Mad Max is a marvelous games that I had to wait to long to play because of so many other gaming distractions. It's such a well designed game in it's mechanics, visualizations, characters, and world building. The game is set in the 2015 Fury Road world of Mad Max and not the Mel Gibson era. Of course they don’t use Tom Hardy’s likeness because...

  • I happen to have a good stockpile of unplayed Lego games on my shelf from back in the day when I bought just about everything. I also haven’t played a Lego game in what felt like ages. I enjoyed playing the previous incarnations of the Lego Star Wars games, so it wasn’t going to be a stretch that I would like this one too. I actually loved playing this one and it...

  • This is a pretty interesting and fun zombie game variant. The point of the game is to get out of the level before being overrun by zombies by searching and finding three pieces of musical equipment that lets you rock out to the next level. It’s no coincidence that you need to find musical equipment to progress since the game has a Rockabilly soundtrack. As you...

  • PUBG has popularized the Battle Royal game type. Respawn, the creators of Titanfall is one of the latest to followed suit with Apex Legends. I already loved this science fiction world setting to begin with, so this was a perfect introduction into the fast paced game play. Your team drops from an airship into the killing fields with 60 players. Picking a good spot...

  • BurgerTime World Tour is a slightly different take on the original arcade classic. It’s the same game play that has you avoiding condiments while you assemble burgers to clear levels. There are also power up that can grab to help you move through the levels like pepper, that stuns your adversaries. Where it differs from the arcade game is in the levels that lay...

  • Unravel is a cool little platformer with interesting puzzle elements and mechanics. You play Yarny, a character made of yarn that unravels as you progress through each level. The character can unravel to a point that it can no longer move forward. However there are points in each level that will replenish the yarn letting you move forward. This is...

  • It's the first call of Duty game and it's now available on the Xbox 360. The game is very much a game of inches as you fight your way to the next checkpoint. You will need to play this game on the hardest difficulty to complete an achievement and it will test every fiber of your being as enemies pour down grenades on you as if they were giving away fists full of candy to...

  • I was surprised that I actually ended up liking the this game more then the last one. The direction the third game was going left much to be desired. However this game goes so far off the deep end that it’s hardly a Saints Row game, it’s just surreal. You start off as the president of the United States. Then an alien entity come to earth and destroyed everything,...

  • I have enjoyed the previous two titles in the Saints Row series. This one is taking the story, the jokes, and the believability over the edge. It’s no longer about you taking over street turf (Although it still is). It’s more about you taking over the world as if you are some sports figure with endorsement and movie deals. The game has to go bigger...

  • The Raven is a nice little click it/who done it adventure game with very detailed environments. The world is not that large, but for an arcade title the game is some 8+ Gigs on the Xbox 360 (One of the reasons I wanted to play and finish it), that’s huge! The story is set in an Agatha Christie style atmosphere where a master thief though dead has stolen...

  • If you enjoyed the first Puzzle Quest game, then I think you will like this one as well. The gameplay remains primarily the same. Match gems to build mana pools to cast spells and destroy your enemy. What has changed is that the traveling in this new world has gotten a smaller, more zoomed in view. Weapon and armor are also now upgradable by collecting items...

  • You know Shaun White from the snowboarding world and his run in the Olympics. He does have a snowboarding game (that makes sense), but he also has a skateboarding game which is not that bad. Now I’m not a big skateboarding fan and have only played Tony Hawk’s Wasteland. In comparison this game is far better. It’s a fun and a fairly easy...

  • From time to time you run into games like Tenchu Stealth Assassin (on the Playstation One) that have amazing scores. The graphics might not have been that great for today’s standards, but they were good enough. Then the soundtrack elevates the game even higher and the music can transcend the game. Prince of Persia is that type of game except all...

  • In general I expect most Xbox 360 Arcade games to be quick little distractions that don’t give you a ton of gameplay because of the numerous limitations developers run into. These games might also just focus on one aspect of game play or they keep the idea simple. A good example would be to compare Arkham Asylum and Gotham City Imposters. These...

  • Every once in a while you are pleasantly surprised by a developer with how much you end up liking a game they created. I have played a few of the Lara Croft games in the past and have always gotten a good deal of enjoyment out of those games. Guardian of Light has a slightly different take on the game dynamics. In this game the developers have given you an overhead view...
