Average User Score: 3.2Mar 6, 2018Kane & Lynch Dead Men is a decent story-driven 3rd person shooter.
The gameplay isn't particularly unique,and the cover system is veryKane & Lynch Dead Men is a decent story-driven 3rd person shooter.
The gameplay isn't particularly unique,and the cover system is very clunky. But except for a few certain levels, functions relatively decently.There are a multitude of interesting levels like the bank heist and the skyscraper shootout.The game uses squad commands for you to command your allies around the levels,though the AI is beyond stupid for both your allies and enemies. But the game's biggest problem is the insane level of recoil on the guns.It makes some gunfights horribly frustrating.
The graphics are average,but the game does run well and has no notable performance issues on the 360
The story and characters are the game's strong point.The idea of pairing a flawed mercenary up with a medicated psychopath leads to pure comedy gold as you can imagine.The actual plot starts strong,but fizzles a bit towards the end,though the game has 2 endings.
The sound design and soundtrack are decent.
Overall,Kane & Lynch Dead Men gets a lot of unfair hate and is a decent game in my opinion,it is very cheap as of when I write this review so I recommend giving it a try.… Expand
Average User Score: 7.4Mar 1, 2018Fight Night Champion is a solid sequel to Round 4, which was already solid in it's own right.
The gameplay feels quite similar to Round 4,Fight Night Champion is a solid sequel to Round 4, which was already solid in it's own right.
The gameplay feels quite similar to Round 4, but the brutality of the sport's biggest wars is very well replicated in this game. Movement is improved, and the controls feel far more fluid and responsive than before. So while the gameplay isn't really that different to Round 4, it maintains a solid foundation and improves on it. Unfortunately, Legacy Mode sees no major changes.
Graphically, the game looks great on the 360, and runs very well. Fighters' likenesses are very close to real life, and the arenas look great.
Champion Mode (the story) was where this game really put all it's eggs in the basket, but is ultimately very mediocre. I like how it covers corruption in sports, but the majority of fights are heavily scripted (i.e. one punch from a fighter will knock you out from rounds 1-3, but do nothing in round 4, or the game decides what round you can finish the fight in etc. So it ultimately isn't very enjoyable, but it's short at 2 hours, so it doesn't outstay it's welcome.
The soundtrack is decent, but the sound design is great overall, due to the great sounds of punches.
Overall, Fight Night Champion is a very enjoyable game that is worth playing.… Expand
Average User Score: 7.2Feb 22, 2018Syndicate is a solid FPS.
The gunplay is great and the weapons do pack a huge amount of punch.The inclusion of weapons such as the gaussSyndicate is a solid FPS.
The gunplay is great and the weapons do pack a huge amount of punch.The inclusion of weapons such as the gauss gun that fires homing bullets,a chaingun,a laser gun,and a flamethrower are highlights. You also have 4 abilities from your dart chip which are bullet time,suicide,which forces an enemy to pull a grenade on himself. The splash damage from the grenade can take out more enemies too. Backfire,which explodes enemy weapons,leaving them unarmed for an easy kill,and Persuade,which turns an enemy into a temporary ally who will kill himself if all enemies are killed in the time where he is an ally. The AI is competent though the boss fights suck. The game also feels very cheap towards the end.
The graphics are decent,but the framerate takes a hit at times with a minor detriment to gameplay.
The sound design is great, and the soundtrack suits the game perfectly.
Syndicate is a good game,so if you want a short campaign to play on a rainy afternoon,this game could keep you entertained.… Expand
Average User Score: 6.9Jun 28, 2017Dead To Rights Retribution is a great 3rd person action game
Gameplay is broken into 3 types of sections:shooting,brawling,andDead To Rights Retribution is a great 3rd person action game
Gameplay is broken into 3 types of sections:shooting,brawling,and stealth.Shooting sections are your fairly simple cover-shooting mechanics but the gunplay is somewhat satisfying,even if there are only about 6 weapons in the game.My favourite part of the game is the brawling.The combat system is surprisingly deep.You have low and high punches,guard breaks,clinching,disarms and a bunch of brutal takedowns.The sheer brutality of the combat system suits the atmosphere perfectly.The stealth sections let you play as a dog named Shadow.These will nearly always consist of getting a keycard for Jack to go through a door.The AI in these sections is quite poor,making them quite easy.
The graphics are ugly,but the framerate remains solid throughout.
The story here is very much filled with b-movie cheese,not the worst I've ever seen though.
The sound design is solid,but the soundtrack is mediocre.
Overall,Dead To Rights Retribution shows that graphics don't mean everything.Great game,highly recommended.… Expand
Average User Score: 7.8Jun 26, 2017Metal Gear Rising Revengeance is a solid action game.
The gameplay is satisfying,with a great combat system and the unique Blade ModeMetal Gear Rising Revengeance is a solid action game.
The gameplay is satisfying,with a great combat system and the unique Blade Mode allowing to cut off enemies' limbs or cut them into pieces.This is vital for some incredible boss fights,particularly the final one.There is a major flaw though,the mapping of block to the attack button and flicking the left stick in the direction of the attacker.In the launch version,which I am playing as my 360 has no internet connection,this can be abused to the point were only a bull charge move from a boss can inflict damage,which ruins some of the game.However I have heard this is patched if you have an internet connection,so keep that in mind.I also must add that this game is very difficult without using that exploit.But be warned the game only takes about 4-5 hours to complete.
The graphics are impressive,and the framerate only drops occasionally.
The sound design is average,but the heavy metal soundtrack suits the game perfectly,with beats timing perfectly to the on-screen action and it just pumps you up!
Overall,Metal Gear Rising is a solid hack and slash held back from greatness by it's short length and a major exploit.… Expand

The gameplay is mediocre,with poor combat and a handful of bugs forcingEnslaved Odyssey To The West is an average action-adventure game.
The gameplay is mediocre,with poor combat and a handful of bugs forcing me to restart at a checkpoint many times while playing the game.The platforming controls do work very well though.My main issue with the game is the fact that the entire game feels like an escort mission.If your partner dies,it's game over and she can't fight in combat to save her life,making the game feel very tedious.
The graphics are incredible,but the framerate does run into issues frequently.
The story is great,right up until an absolutely insulting sequel-bait game ending.
The sound design and soundtrack are both average.
Overall,Enslaved Odyssey To The West is a merely average game that is extremely overrated.… Expand

The gameplay is great,with a deep and satisfying combat system,dynamic events such asAnarchy Reigns is a solid 3rd person brawler.
The gameplay is great,with a deep and satisfying combat system,dynamic events such as bombings of the area you are fighting in to keep you on your toes,and the ability to throw barrels and vehicles at opponents.Multiplayer was the focus of this game,but if you don't have Xbox Live,don't worry as you can fight bots,which is awesome.The single-player story took me about 7 hours to complete.
The graphics aren't great but get the job done,and the framerate has an occasional drop but nothing of a major detriment.
The story is pretty bad,but the characters come up with some seriously funny lines to make up for it.
The sound design is decent,but the soundtrack is absolutely killer.
Overall,Anarchy Reigns is a solid game that is well worth picking up.… Expand
Average User Score: 7.0Jun 23, 2017Prototype 2 is a decent game,but can't reach the standards of the original
Gameplay is pretty much the same,with no majorPrototype 2 is a decent game,but can't reach the standards of the original
Gameplay is pretty much the same,with no major changes.However,the flaw with this game is that it's far too easy.I only died 4 times throughout the entire game,two of which were on the final boss.That brings me to the bosses,which are nowhere near as exciting as the first game's bosses.
Graphics have improved majorly from the first game,but the framerate drops occasionally.
The main character of this game,James Heller,isn't very good,cracking out sh*t your mom jokes,compared to the complete badassery of Alex from the first game.
The soundtrack and sound design are passable.
Overall,Prototype 2 doesn't quite reach the quality of the first game,it's still fun and I recommend picking it up for cheap.… Expand

The gameplay is straight up broken,with awful AI,probably the worst I've ever seen in a game,even on the hardest difficulty,the ability to use kill move animations in the middle of combat and not take damage,a broken health system and straight-up abysmal shooting mechanics.
The graphics look like a PS2 launch game and are very dark making it hard to see.The framerate drops consistently too.The game also has a tendency to just freeze for no apparent reason and is filled with game-breaking bugs.
The sound design and soundtrack are phenomenally bad.
