    For all the things that don't work well, the exciting combat and deep world make KAR a very worthy game to play. It's a shame Electronic Arts is doing such a poor job of promoting it, as there is enough here to make the foundation of a very solid franchise.

    It’s got 26 levels of outstanding Star Wars continuity, awesome gameplay, a fricken sweet multiplayer mode, and above all else you’re a Jedi (obviously) and you get to use and learn the force throughout the game, not to mention wield a lightsaber.

    The only downside so far is that Microsoft is making the sequel only for the Xbox which sucks if you don’t have one.

    If "Half-life" and "Serious Sam" were combined, I have a feeling that Area 51 would be the result.

    It properly addresses criticisms from Overture and ties up the story arc rather well.

    There’s very little luck to the missions, and a skilled hit man can beat any level efficiently on the very first try. Anyone up to that challenge should get this game.

    The other thing that got incredibly annoying is Irving Lambert, your debriefer and operations coordinator and hearing him say “this missions over”….. “this missions over”.

    The Chronicles of Riddick: Assault on Dark Athena has a lot of content to shuffle through, especially if you’ve never played Escape, so it’s totally worth getting.

    I do have to admit that this episode appeared more focused, better paced, and almost felt like it had a bit more of a challenge/content level than the previous episodes.

    Red Faction: Armageddon to me is a good B movie.
    • 65 Metascore

    A fun and challenging game that is good to play for maybe a half an hour at a time. It’s an extremely intense game that provides several hours of entertainment.

    The content is in abundance, the gameplay is mostly solid, and the child-like humor is all there, but it just feels like something is missing to make the whole experience great.

    It very much feels like Creative Assembly has peaked creatively.

    The presentation of AC may feature some of the best graphics and sound effects seen in a PC game in some time.

    Buy it for the multiplayer.

    Its biggest issue may be its release date: there are simply better games competing for your dollar in the marketplace right now.

    Graphically, Tycoon City is gorgeous.

    While that may be one thousand words of criticism, overall I would recommend Mafia II. It's hard to deeply explain the positives because I'd hate to give away some of the more jaw-dropping ain't-that-cool aspects to the game.

    It’s the multiplayer portion that is worth your money.
    • 70 Metascore
    • 78 Critic Score
    By far one of the shortest campaign experiences that I have played in some time.

    What I didn’t love was the mediocre multiplayer component, which was purely a deathmatch fest with a single game mode.

    If it were a thirty dollar expansion pack it would have been lovely... but... it’s just not a good deal.

    A solid 3 rd person action brawler with responsive controls and enough fun included to force me to play through the game more than once and then to play through the more difficult bonus levels.

    Raven took all the good things first person shooters have been doing since Half-Life and Unreal...it works--sort of--but the end result is a bit messy nonetheless.

    One of the biggest differences in this game is that you exert a lot of control over your main character.

    Boasting over 30 hours of play time, multiple difficulty levels and an online component, Titan Quest offers enough gameplay content to make it worth a look.

    Probably the best soundtrack ever produced for a game.
    • 83 Metascore
    • 76 Critic Score
    Prey is a good game, but I think it will underwhelm people’s expectations because those expectations were astronomically high.
    • 72 Metascore

    A gripping story, brutal violence at times (well, machine violence), superb graphics, and clever adult humor are all things this game shares with "Alice." Repetitive flying and ship battles with too few on-foot missions add negatively to the game.

    It’s a good game that has many bugs and doesn’t seem to be appropriately optimized.
