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.
