    From the beginning of the game, till the ending, I was relatively pleased with how important and impactful the decisions I made were.

    It really does a fantastic job at letting you in on the Vietnam era, and I’m sure that after a few patches it will be even better.

    Though it may be very frustrating at times, games shouldn’t be easy to complete. Watch out for the controls if you play it on the PC, they change along with the camera angles.

    Excellent voice acting and sound effects/score.

    I found it annoying that there was no mission briefing. There was no introduction information on your target or why you were there that came up prior to the mission starting.

    Dungeons of Dredmor makes you respect death, where many games simply laugh in its face.

    The single player campaign is very enjoyable, and no DOOM 3 fan should leave it on the store shelves just because a few levels aren’t as good as the standard set early on in the game.

    I absolutely love the attention Tripwire has given to the small details in the game.

    Dead Island is absolutely a fun and very playable game and worth the money, even if it lacks the incredible detail and more serious challenge of Dead Rising 2. Dead Island may lack new ideas, but it makes up for it with simple playability, and often that's all anyone wants in a game.

    The intensity is there right at the beginning.

    The weapons look and act real, the grenades and Molotov cocktails look and behave similar real ones, and the environment responds to the weapons.

    Online drift mode is very popular, and if you happen to find someone in there with the name RedStarAcura behind an Impreza, he will not back down to any challenge!

    While at times you may find the game a little slow paced and the controls and gameplay frustrating, those who stick with the game to the end will come out pleased.

    The wit present in this game is second to none and I honestly think this is what would have happened had Mel Brooks gotten into game making.

    A fine and very playable horror game, and while the relatively linear story line and straightforwardness of the battles don’t combine to offer much replay value, it’s still worth the price of admission.

    The environments are beautiful, sound is quality, and community is strongly encouraged. You do not have to be running this game all the time to be enjoying it.

    If you're not already the kind of gamer who obsesses over making an extra 2% rate of return on investment, this game probably isn't for you, but for those that enjoy business simulation games and are willing to put the time into learning how Patrician IV works, this game delivers incredible value.

    The Darkness II is a decent shooter, but there is nothing in it that is amazing; it's respectable but mostly predictable.

    The worst thing about this game, I thought, was that it was so difficult.

    Long-term value is one of the many deciding factors in purchasing this game. It’s already receiving more content, it’s cheap, and it’s really good about killing stuff. Buying Killing Floor is easily one of the best purchasing decisions you can make this year.

    Easily the best in-planet RTS title I have played since "Starcraft", and it definitely gives me hope for the future of the RTS genre as a whole.

    This is an AAA title, a big gun; it goes up against recent hits like Rift and holds its own.

    The major disadvantage of this game is that there is no multiplayer.

    This game has a lot of life in it and am excited to see it expand.

    It is extremely complex, and can get frustrating at times.

    Visually I was left with the impression of an old engine updated with a few modern tricks in an attempt to bring it back to life.

    A surprisingly solid product, and gamers that have waited long for a decent sci-fi MMO should check it out. If you’re already into another MMO, however, I don’t see this pulling you away from it unless you’re a big Garriott fan (Ultima fans will find nothing here of interest). On the other hand, there is no harm in spending at least a month or two in the world of Tabula Rasa because this game will likely influence others for years to come.

    What the game does – a single-player campaign – it does very well, and if you enjoyed the rich scenarios of previous games in the series you probably own this game already. If you don't, and if you're looking for an entry point into the phenomenon, this is as stellar a place to start as any.

    OpFlash 2 actually tries realism and gets the basics right.

    The main quest is challenging and contains a great deal of replay value, not to mention original gameplay that actually works.
