    A good example that games with forgettable stories and acting are still worth playing. Rich storytelling is always welcome and I’d love to see more of it, but these are games after all and playability is a lot more important.

    The episode should clock in somewhere around four hours depending on how often you use the hint system. I think people of all ages could really enjoy The Great Cow Race, especially the fans of the comics.

    A fun game with a very high level of polish but not a great deal of depth. It’ll cast its spell on you early with its beautiful visuals and agile main character, and it’s a fantastic experience while it lasts, which isn’t nearly long enough.

    I think Keepsake can be appreciated by a small percentage of adventure genre lovers if players pace themselves.

    This game has many serious design flaws that prevent this reviewer, in good conscious, from recommending its purchase by others.

    What they gave us is not just Baldur’s Gate in space; the core gameplay and thus subsequent gameplay elements are very different – making Space Rangers a unique experience.

    This game does nothing to besmirch the Godfather’s impressive legacy – in fact, its use of the license is arguably its greatest strength.

    The story might have a flicker of potential but everything else causes the game to fall flat on its face.

    Truly what makes the game great is the world itself, which is just so much fun to explore.

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

    While Open for Business adds new places and new objects, its true value is in adding another huge gameplay element to an already outstanding title. As an expansion pack, it includes more new content and better gameplay than several other stand-alone games.

    Graphically, Tycoon City is gorgeous.

    It left me feeling frustrated and many times I found myself ranting away after quitting. The major things in need of improvement are the means by which you earn money, the levels of food consumption and production (which run low very easily), the dated graphics, and, probably the biggest thing, your people’s satisfaction.

    Probably the best soundtrack ever produced for a game.
    • 71 Metascore

    The learning curve gets steep rather quickly and some of the levels will require ridiculously good timing in order to advance. In fact, the difficulty swings back and forth so often that it almost feels like two separate games.

    The Movies is an all-around first-class effort. It is easy to learn, fun and addictive to play.

    Gun
    The bottom line is that Gun could have, and probably should have, been great. It's got some very good ideas, a good storyline, and excellent voice acting and characterizations. The gameplay and level design is miserable.

    Much of the game will simply be roaming the entire island, area by area, until you trigger some new event which will move the plot along.

    You get a real sense of claustrophobia in the middle of the mess trying to figure out which direction to go and who to shoot in the haze.

    Refreshes the Civ series and offers a great experience for newcomers to the series as well as seasoned veterans. It is immensely fun whether you play multi- or single-player.

    Unfortunately, while the game has heart, it just doesn't have the goods.
    • 81 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    Technically splendid, but lacks the soul and the focus that made its previous games such powerful experiences.
    • 88 Metascore
    • 93 Critic Score
    A true thriller in that it makes use of corner-of-the-eye imagery, unsettling voices, and effects to send chills down your spine which leads to a healthy dose of dread.

    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.

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

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

    There is something about the visual style of the game that makes it look a lot more real than other racers which compared to it seem fake and outdated. I guess it's the combination of a potent engine with a few skilled artists, or maybe it's my imagination, fact is that CRC is among the best looking games out now.

    The replay value is where Cold War suffers the biggest blow.

    I think the new DoD has done the best job of utilizing the Source physics engine.

    As an adventure game at heart it's amazing to find it's also a cinematographic experience, an emotionally gripping drama.
