    I have yet to play a more immersive game period. From the word "go", I found myself completely engulfed into the pseudo world that is unfolded before your eyes. [6 "drips"]

    If you can take the best puzzle-guessing, enemy-fighting, graphically beautiful shooters out there and combine them ' you'd come close to hitting the mark that makes up HL2.

    Boasting a solid, long, and challenging single player career, a massive online gaming side, enhanced graphics, aggressive and intuitive bot AI, tons of action, a solid engine, and a host of new tweaks added to the original theme that triggers all over the world have come to know and love, UT 2004 has put its foot down with a bone-rattling crash into the world of PC fragging.

    The total package; outstanding gameplay, completely groundbreaking graphics, and a storyline and plot filled with surprises and heartpounding excitement. [5 1/2 "drips"]

    Pandora's storyline is easier to follow than the original game and does a good job of getting you wrapped up into the scheme of things.

    It’s a masterpiece of in-your-face action, a good plot, trend-setting graphics and audio that’ll have you screaming for hours. [5 1/2 "drips"]

    The main reason Call of Duty: United Offensive isn’t perfect is because it eventually ends, leaving you wanting more...It's everything a person could want in an expansion pack.

    A fantastic driving game. It has style, variety and a solid ride with hours of action driving like a freaking maniac on the streets of Bay View.

    While there are plenty of changes to how multiplayer works and plenty of new weapons, the overall feel of the game is unmistakably Tribes.

    Like its older brothers, BF Vietnam, though based on real battles and real places, doesn’t focus so much on the gritty realism as on the “excitement factor” of war.

    If you want gritty, realistic combat action, go buy "United Offensive"—if you want the "digital crack" factor that has defined the Battlefield titles, and you dig the Star Wars series, then definitely give this one a try.

    We flat loved the wide open feel of the game, got a ton of enjoyment out of it, and really liked the look and feel of the game engine and the weapons and interaction interface.

    We haven't heard more moving music in a game before. EA hired a real orchestra to play the songs and the results are very well done and help fit the somber mood most of the missions you go on.

    The graphics, sound, playability and diverse atmosphere make it one of the more compelling RPGs we’ve played to date. It does a decent job of being a lot of things to many and does so with ample amounts of grace.

    A wickedly cool game. It offers us the best of standard FPS games with new parameters making the game more challenging than just gunning down goons.

    Gorgeous eye candy strapped to a solid real time strategy game that should provide anyone with hours of good times hunting them nasty Terran Empire goons.

    A great RPG with wonderful stories, incredible looks and the ability to plunge players deeply into the dark, twisted world of Vampire the Masquerade. Aside from the unfair yet expected side-by-side comparison with Half-Life 2, Bloodlines is a beautiful game that is as mesmerizing as Dracula's eyes.

    At first the slow pace can be trying for action junkies, but after a short bit of time you find yourself playing just a little bit longer to finish that last task or to reach another goal.

    My last whine is lengthy AI turns.

    The lack of tangible information is probably what hurts Evil Genius the most -- alarm systems register for both tourists and spies, minions die without warning, traps are on fire and you often get only one real warning -- generally, it feels like you just don't have anywhere near as much data coming in as you should.

    No multiplayer is offered. Too bad—it might have seriously added to the replayability, even if it was deathmatch only. But nonetheless, it’s a challenging and fairly entertaining experience.

    It is hard to play the game and NOT enjoy it. It reaches the kid in all of us.

    The Painkiller soundtrack doesn’t exist. It is a heavily repetitious heavy metal lick that repeats itself way too much.
    • 74 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    Though there’s not a ton of replay value to this one, if you play it on the medium (or highest, if you’re totally insane) difficulty setting, you’ll have enough of a challenge to get a big dose of the sick and twisted Hitman-style gaming all us psycho-killers have grown used to over the years.

    A very simple game, but it is also very entertaining. It is easy to whittle away hours chasing galleons, seeking buried treasure or raiding ports. Meier seems to have a way with making games that are hard to stop playing.

    The language does get a little tiring, although some of it is pretty funny, at least the first time through.

    A double-barreled shotgun, a gravity gun…oops, I mean grabber, Hell Time and slight variations on demons are fun in Doom 3 but not a good enough reason to buy the expansion pack.
    • 40 Metascore

    It’s not that it’s that bad of a game, it’s just that most of what’s under the hood on this one has been done before.
    • 68 Metascore

    The PC release of this one feels as though it was rushed, and will probably bring you nearly as much pain as it does pleasure.
    • 71 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    A decent game with an outstanding theme and some innovative ideas for making an FPS more challenging, but remains bogged down with frustrations by the same ideas.
