Once upon a time, I used to love playing football games. I played the hell out of Madden 08 for PC, and NFL 2K5 for PlayStation 2 is still my favorite. I really dislike Madden 25 though, for a myriad of reasons. It may not be a terrible game but there are problems here that I can’t overlook.
Sometimes games are easy to review, sometimes they’re hard. For me, harder games to review are those that require coordinated multiplayer – scheduling with friends who also own the game in question can be a trick. Monaco: What’s Yours is Mine is one such game that I knew was going to be a bit of a pain. Fortunately, its arrival on Xbox Live Arcade came at just the right time: Not only was I able to rope Will from Chaos is Gaming in, our associate “Jverde” was in town for a few weeks and willing to help us pull off our top-down 2D heists. The results were convincing of one thing: we have no business starting a life of crime.
Minecraft for the Xbox 360 is what it sounds like, and little more. It’s Minecraft on your Xbox, which is far from a bad thing. In fact, it brings some benefits over its PC counterpart. Unfortunately it also brings some drawbacks.
Having not played the original Kinect Sports, Season Two stands as my inaugural Kinect Sports introduction. Is it better then it’s primary competition, the standard-bearer Wii Sports Resort?
We have reviewed the footage (and gameplay), and have come up with a verdict. The review is in, and we’re here to deliver it.
Here’s a game that allot people have been crowing about, so I had to give it a go. What I found was a game that was better then it should be because 50% of it is strong enough to carry the rest of the game. What am I talking about? Read on.
I played the hell out of the original Fable, both on the Xbox and PC. In fact, my originalFable review was the first ever for e-AAGH.net. Fable 2 didn’t strike the same chord, unfortunately. I just couldn’t get into the game in any way, shape or form. Now, having put many, many hours into Fable 3, we’re going to find out which predecessor it veers closer to.
NCAA Football 08 was my first ever Xbox 360 review and it still stands out in my mind as possibly the most fun football title I’ve yet to play on the 360. It had great graphics, outstanding control, a just-right difficulty and my favorite player career mode to date, ‘Road to Glory.’ How have things changed since then, for better or worse? Well, time has been kind to some aspects but the faults loom large and point to a possible larger problem: we may have reached the end of the leash on sports titles for this console generation.
