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 Where do I start first with, the graphics are outdated (Yes I know the PS2 is really old and outdated, but it was no different on the Xbox ether), the sound effects are terrible and both the graphics and sounds are recycled from previous games of this series.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.
