Video Game Review – Uncharted 2: Among Thieves (PS3)

I’m back with another video game review, and another current generation video game. It’s from last year, but it’s one that’s likely to become a Greatest Hits title at some time this year. I enjoyed the previous installment in the series, which I reviewed earlier in the year, and it set a high mark for me. The question is, does the sequel meet that mark for me? Continue reading →

Video Game Review – Prince of Persia (PS3)

A couple years ago, Ubisoft did a brief reboot to the Prince of Persia franchise–one which, from what’s been released about the next game, will probably be a one off thing. The game was criticized by some Hardcore Gamers (I feel like I put a “z” at the end of that for some reason) for being too easy, for not having enough combat. Some time has past since the game came out and now I’ve gotten my hands on it, and I’ve beaten it – the Epilogue DLC too. So, it’s time for me to give my thoughts on the definitive Prince of Persia experience. After hearing all the negative buzz, I have to say I was pleasantly surprised.

Video Game Review – Ghostbusters (PS3)

Last year we finally got what could best be described as the 3rd installment of the Ghostbusters series. It was written by the writers of the films, and got the original actors who played the four Ghostbusters back together. Why didn’t you see it in theaters? Because it was a video game.  Now I’ve played it, so now I’m gonna review it. No, I’m not going to reference the Ghostbusters theme song in the intro.

Video Game Review – Uncharted: Drake’s Fortune (PS3)

It’s safe to say that most Indiana Jones games that didn’t use the SCUMM engine weren’t particularly very good. Well, shortly after the launch of the PS3, one of the first PS3 titles to come from a 3rd party developer (though from a first party publisher) was Uncharted: Drake’s Fortune, a game that tried to have the Indiana Jones style, but with some modern sensibilities, and a modern setting. When the game came out, the game got good review scores, was considered to be a system seller, and frankly did well enough to get a sequel which came out last year. So, I’ve played the game, and I like it – but does it have that good Indiana Jones feel?

Video Game Review – Bayonetta (PS3)

That’s right. We’ve got another review of a video game basically a week after the game came out. In this case, it’s Bayonetta, the new action from from Platnium Games (which is made up of the team which made Okami, God Hand, and Viewtiful Joe), and specifically from the creator of Devil May Cry. Does it hold up to its pedigree, or does it kind of fall down on its face?
