Dead Rising For The Xbox360 Game Review

January 20, 2008 | Filed Under Game Reviews | No Comments

Dead Rising is available for the Xbox 360 from the publisher Capcom. It costs $29.99 on Amazon. Capcom has a history of games on Zombies. The Resident Evil series from Capcom has been a moneyspinner for them. Capcom is not connected with Resident Evil in any way, though.

Dead Rising is pure action, to do with killing zombies which are killed easily, though there are so many of them. Dead Rising manages to make good entertainment of the killing of zombies theme and is very playable. There are some structural faults and repitition which weigh down the excitement of the game.

Kingdom Under Fire: Circle Of Doom For The Xbox 360 Game Review

January 19, 2008 | Filed Under Game Reviews | No Comments

Kingdom Under Fire: Circle of Doom is a Microsoft Release for the Xbox 360. It is priced at $58.99. Strategy elements are sacrificed in this offering that is pure action roleplaying. The story diverges from the gameplay and the action gets boring at times. The online version is a little better.

The story is inconsequential to the real core of the game. You can choose from 5 characters to control with a sixth that can be unlocked. Sleep in this game is an opportunity to enter a dreamworld which is familiar to fans of previous games in this series.

Tiger Woods PGA Tour 08 For The Xbox 360 Game Review

January 17, 2008 | Filed Under Game Reviews | No Comments

Tiger Woods PGA Tour 08 is available from Electronic Arts for a price of $49.99 on Amazon.com. This series has been the best selling golf franchise for a long time. Although the games play well, there have not been too many changes in them. The Xbox 360 version has its share of bugs. The analog swing in this one is not as good as the previous games.

This year there are new bingo, bango and bongo modes. If you are first on the green you get “bingo”, if you are closest to the pin you get “bango” and the highest score gives you “bongo”. Online play is mostly the same as the previous games in the series. Career mode is slightly better than previous years.

History Channel: Battle For The Pacific for the Xbox 360 Game Review

January 13, 2008 | Filed Under Game Reviews | No Comments

Although this game features the name of the History Channel, it is not just historically accurate, it is downright unrealistic. In this game soldiers run up to the enemy without cover and then kill them. The mission design is terrible and artificial intelligence is bad as well.

The story here is hardly even there. All you have is stand alone missions and voice overs that are very uninteresting to say the least. You can’t move too far away from the commanding officer without ending the mission.

January 10, 2008 | Filed Under Game Reviews | No Comments

The Metal Slug series of action games has been a money spinner for SNK for some time now. It has been released for various home consoles as a compilation and stand alone as well. Metal Slug 3 is perhaps the best game in the series and has fresh ideas and is a great story.

If you want this on your Xbox Live Arcade, it will cost you 800 points or $10. Although this is a high price for a seven year old arcade game on your Xbox, you will still find yourself playing it again and again. There are great boss fights as well as great fight sequences.

The Elder Scrolls IV: Shivering Isles—Bedlam for All

January 7, 2008 | Filed Under Game Reviews | No Comments

Expansion packs always come with a feeling of caution, as companies are anxious to capitalize on the success of the base game and rush the additional material through the development phase too rapidly. In this case, Bethesda Softworks has done a superlative job in expanding on an already excellent game (Oblivion) by inventing a whole new world, interesting new characters, and an intriguing set of challenges.
