Mortal Kombat: Armageddon

Mortal Kombat: Armageddon was released a few days ago, October 9TH, 2006, on the Xbox and PS2. What a disappointment! Where do I start first with, the graphics are outdated (Yes I know the PS2 is really old and outdated, but it was no different on the Xbox ether), the sound effects are terrible and both the graphics and sounds are recycled from previous games of this series.

The game feels almost like it's the last game released and not a new one. I rate it a 6.8, I wouldn't buy it even if your a big fan of
the Mortal Kombat series, instead rent it as this game won't offer you much fun.

Scarface: The World Is Yours

Scarface: The World Is Yours was released today, October 8TH, 2006, on the PS2, PC and Xbox. Like the name suggests, the game is based on Scarface the movie, but the game doesn't start where the movie does, but starts where the movie ends. In the movie Tony Montana is killed in the end by a guy that comes from behind him, but the game rewrites that, where you don't die.

You start from the bottom again, you lost everything, the money, drugs and respect. In the game it's your goal to regain all that back and take what's yours. Many of the missions can feel boring and pointless, as if they had nothing to do with the story. And same with much of the storyline.

The nice thing they did was keep loading to a minimum, you can explore an open-ended map that lets you go in and out of buildings without any loading screens popping up. If you hit the talk button Tony starts cursing at people, it's quite enjoyable and funny to do. Overall the game had a few holes, but overall it's a fun game, I rate it a 7.5.

Saints Row

Saints Row was released today, August 29TH, 2006, for the Xbox 360. Very good game, you should really love this game if your a fan of GTAs' games, as this game copies a lot off of it, but it does add it's own spin to it as well, which is what makes this game so great.

It allows you to make your own character's appearance, you can be white, black and everything in betwean. You can choose your eye and change the shape of your eye. You can also choose your hair color and style it the way you like. There are a number of options to choose from to make your character's appearance look the way you want. Graphics are weak though for the Xbox 360 and could use improvment.

Voice and sound on the other hand is done very well. You can play online with up to 12 players. Overall a good game, I rate it a 8.4, a game any GTA fan would love to play.

Madden NFL 07

Madden NFL 07 was realeased today, August 22ND, 2006, on PS2, PSP, PC, Xbox, GameCube, GBA and Xbox 360. Madden NFL 07 didn't live up to the series past games, though it's not worst than provous ones of the series, they didn't add much to the game. I rate it a 8.0, only worth renting if you have last year's Madden game.

Dead Rising

Dead Rising is set to be released tomorrow, August 8TH, 2006, on the Xbox 360. Dead Rising is about a freelance photo journalist on the hunt for a big story. He travels to a small suburban town in pursuit of a hot lead, only to find that it's been overrun with zombies. It is somewhat like Resident Evil. There are plenty of things to explore on this game both indoors and outdoors.
The game uses a Real-time system, which means that certain events happen at certain times and if you're not there you'll miss it. This can be a real pain in the butt because if you miss something important and already saved the game you will have to start all over again. It's not fun having to be somewhere on time in real life and it's no different in a game. I advise you have a number of saves, so you don't have to go back to far if this happens to you.

At times the zombies will be swarming you, but not like other games, where only few would be on screen, there will be tons of them coming at you. Graphics are done very well, but could have been a bit better. Models look . Sounds and voices are outstanding. Overall, I rate this game 8.5, something most will find enjoyable to play.

NCAA Football 2007

NCAA Football 2007 was released today, July 18, 2006, for PS2, PSP, Xbox 360 and Xbox. NCAA Football is back and doesn't improve much from the past games in the series. I rate it 8.8, worth buying if you like football or NCAA sports.
