Dark Void is a game that had great potential, but ultimately falls short due to technical issues and design flaws that are difficult to tolerate in a world where there are so many other better games to be experienced.
While Nintendo's online services gimp the game a little bit, the rest of the experience is extremely well-crafted and a testament to the capabilities of the DS. Those looking for a fun action-RPG will not be disappointed if they pick up PS0
Fans of the first game would be missing out if they didn't give L4D2 a spin, and newcomers have picked a great time to get into the series. This is a perfect example of how to do a video game sequel the right way.
Whether you're a dedicated fan of the series or merely an intrigued passerby, I can assure you that diving deep into what FIFA 10 has to offer will be an entertaining and rewarding experience that is worth the price tag.
There just doesn't seem to be anything that Forza Motorsport 3 doesn't do right. The game is set up in an intricate, unique way that allows even casual players to slowly turn into hardcore ones. The presentation is stunning, the online options and community features are unparalleled, and the sheer amount of content available is enough to last years. FM3 sets a bar that may not be touched for a long time.
While I stand by the idea that those who purchased '09 won't be getting their $60 worth out of this one, those who haven't visited the series in a while (or ever) can feel confident that they'll be getting a product worth well more than the asking price when they buy Madden NFL 10
The thing that no one expected however, is this: Shadow Complex is the Half-Life 2 to Super Metroid's Doom. Some of you might be hung up on Shadow Complex's $15 price tag. Get over that now because this one is worth much more than the asking price.
Guitar Hero: Smash Hits is a fun music game with a great setlist, but the price for the old content and lack of any real incentive for purchase other than mic and drum support is a real deal-breaker. Sadly, I don't think this is the end of this kind of cash-in from Activision.
There are some minor flaws with Tiger Woods PGA Tour 10, but they're a bit overshadowed by the incredible depth, amount of content, and sheer fun factor offered by the game as a whole. I'm mad about the DLC thing, but that's more of a problem with EA as a whole than with this game. The most glowing endorsement I can give this game is that I promise I'll be playing more of it even after this review has been posted.
