Release Date: 5-1-2009
Genre: Action and Adventure
Buy/Don't: No (But makes a good weekend rental)
Overall Rating: 5.0 out of 10.00

This is a simple hack-and-slash game... it will take about 20 hours to complete. The camera is fluid but can be a tad bit jerky at times, other than that it's good.
The story is somewhat shallow and the flashbacks are frequent. The controls, however, are very well placed and easy to remember.
X-Men Origins: Wolverine (Uncaged Edition) presents an excellent amount of challenges, and the achievements are strategically placed so that unlocking them coincides with relevant parts of the storyline.
It's also very neat how you can unlock old costumes and play with the classic costumes.
This game reminds me a lot of Wolverine's Revenge.. very similar if not a remake, with updated graphics and a new storyline.
The reason I would not buy this game instead of renting it is because I'm not a big fan of hack-and-slash genre (it's...

Overall Rating: 8 out of 10

In the beginning you are a nobody, in the end you end up a very important somebody!!!
The Godfather 2 is a very solid glitch free game, and the load times are almost non-existant. The weapons are a varied collection so you have the correct tool for every job. The story line is very deep and complex, but also the Godfather 2 is a pretty straightforward game where you take over the buisnesses and become the king of the mob.
You begin your story in Cuba as a nobody, then you move on New York and then you move on to Florida your final stop is Cuba. You are cast into a postion where you are clawing and fighting your way to the top, but first you need to eliminate the other families on your rise to fame and fortune.
The enemies are also perfectly balanced for the game in both their intelligence and weaponry, and the number of enemies is well balanced for each buisness you try and take over. The controls...
245w ago - The presentation in Godfather two really sets the mood for a mafia story. The game takes place exactly where the first one ended which makes it easier to follow and enjoy right from the start.
The feeling you get when the opening cut scene starts is very immersive, because the intensity of the music followed by the voice acting really makes this game rival even the great Grand Theft Auto Series which is not easy to pull off, yet EA has managed to grasp such a presentation to the game that you will want to spend your time and money to become the DON.
The graphics in this game is simply amazing. The detail in the characters are so clean and crisp that you can see how accurate the facial features move along with the dialogue that's spoken, it's really incredible to see. The explosions in the game are no slouch either, you have a lot of people running around on screen, cars exploding, full screen Anti - Aliasing I mean this game is really beautiful to look at.
The gameplay in this game has taken a serious overhaul from the previous version. The main thing that's great about the gameplay is how much more responsive the controls feel now.
On the PlayStation 3 version you have sixaxis which in most games aren't implemented...
248w ago - Who is Matt Hazard? This is a question that the majority of the gaming populace is going to inquire when they first get a glimpse at Eat Lead.
According to the front of the box this is his return to gaming, and unless you have been keeping tabs on the parody that publisher D3 has been creating with this title things could get confusing.
Eat Lead is a videogame that attempts to poke fun at the clichés of gaming while telling the story of a washed-up gaming legend that is finally getting a chance to make a comeback. What follows is a mess of poor game design, selective humor and some genuinely frustrating boss encounters.
As you can imagine you assume the role of Matt Hazard, a washed-up videogame superstar that was once the biggest name in interactive entertainment. Over the years your name becomes tarnished due to licensing it out to crappy spin-offs and of course the obligatory kart racing game.
Unfortunately for the company they have signed a lifetime contract with the fading star so he can simply sit back and enjoy his success without having to worry about anything. That is until a brand new CEO takes over the company and decides that it is time for Hazard to go. The plot revolves around Wally (the new CEO) and his mission to once and for all eliminate Hazard. Matt learns...
