When I look at EA Sports games and 2K sports games, despite all the homerism you hear from fanboys of either camp, they both really share the same problem. And that problem is realism at the most basic level of the sport they are trying to portray.

With Madden & NCAA football games, it is the lack of special teams basics. No punt blocks, no CPU returning Punts back for a TD, no pass interference being called. Player mirroring is very rampant to the point you have corner backs running ... Read More

As the title states, are you a gamer or just a sports gamer. Meaning do you play a variety of games or only just one or two sports games. I have seen a lot of men say I don't play video games, I just play Madden or MLB The Show.

Pretty sure it is a lot of people on OS who have a PS3 just for MLB The Show and just have a Xbox 360 just for Madden or FIFA or NBA 2K. Then you have those who only play Call of Duty or Battlefield series ONLY.

So what category do you fall ... Read More

Ok so I just beat the game. For me it took 52 hours to beat with doing 99% of the side quests. Definitely got my money's worth with this game. The replay value is very high when you consider the following:

1. You can play with an import save history.

2. You can play with the game default history.

3. Variety of classes.

All 3 of those greatly effect the story line. Because depending on who you helped in the 1st game, determines who you ... Read More

Ok so I had this game since release day, logged a good amount of hours into it where I felt I could give a decent early review of the game.

The Good
  1. Graphics, much improved, more detailed, they remade how the Quanari look. They look more bad arse now.
  2. The Mass Effect style of good, neutral or evil answer choices, which determines if a person will be friends with you or a rival.
  3. The size of the map. Map is HUGE, lots of districts, a lot of people to interactive with,

This game starts off where the second game left out at. So that means once again you play as Ezio. Graphically this game is about the same as Assassin's Creed 2 for the most part that is. Some characters have gotten a face lift, some buildings look better, the NPC which there are a ton of in the streets look better. The attention to detail is pretty darn good I would say.

Sounds are amazing for those with a home theatre system or a pair of gaming surround sound headsets. You can ... Read More

Over all I must say this game has it's highs and lows. The high is that the single player is entertaining, story line is pretty good IF you are into consipiracy theories. Because this what the game plays as, one big conspiracy theory after another.

Multi player is re-done, more balanced. They have some new weapons, perks, modes, etc. And they made some previous weapons more powerful and some weaker.

Now on to the bad. This refers to single player. The game has ... Read More

People like to say in a capitalist society, anybody can be anything, if you put your mind to it, you can do it. However that is really not the case in the videogame industry. Well I should clarify and say it isn't the case in the CONSOLE videogame industry.

Videogame industry is a lot like politics in a way. You have your machines who been in the business for years and then you have your grass roots people. Like it or not, more often then not, the companies that have been in the ... Read More

Ok I just beat the game. On default difficulty took me 7 1/2 hours to beat.

PROS

Atmosphere - The sounds of the guns and background noise on surround sound makes you feel like you right in the middle of the war. You hear bullets whizzing past your head, hear you teammates calling for you from a distance.

Weapons - realistic. None of that getting head shots with a pistols from long range BS. 50 cal is the best representation of a 50 cal sniper rifle I have ... Read More

I really think 2K is on to something here with the touches tendancy. Even though their ratings for players with it is out of whack, these but a programming is a Sim gamer god send. In essence it is a priority meter.

Just think if Madden and NCAA football had it with their WR's, TE's and HB's. No longer would you see the slot WR leading the team with catches and yards while the star WR of the team have low stats. For the teams with 2 HBs in the rotation, no longer would see the ... Read More

Well I have been playing video games since 1983, ever since I was 4 years old. Had just about every console that came out.

Now I know a good number of OSers weren't back then and know nothing about gaming pre Playstation 1 era. So I will go down memory lane and tell people the difference between the now generation and the old generation.

Back then video games were an art form. People took a lot of pride in what they produce. It really was a labor of love. Games ... Read More

Ok 1st off just let me say I am not a Final Fantasy player at all. Matter of fact I never owned any Final Fantasy games EVER. Sure I borrowed some games here and there over the years, just to play it.

But I never beat a Final Fantasy game, mainly because I just couldn't get into it. That being said, came today, I was off today, went to the game aisle of the store, to see what was coming out and seen this game, along with posters all over the darn aisle.

I looked at ... Read More

Let me start off with saying this game is AWESOME ! Mass Effect 2 really blew me away. Kind of funny considering the 1st one annoyed me and I never got into it.

This game came around, I seen the commercials for it and I kind of dismissed it like what ever, I will just buy it for my brother, since he loved the heck out of the 1st Mass Effect, to the point he beat it 4 times LOL.

I popped the game in, well 1st thing I noticed this game came with 2 discs. Anyway ... Read More

Let me start this off as saying I through out my gaming career, never really was a RPG type of guy. I was more into sports and war themed games. Hell the last RPG I really got into was Ultima Exodus many years ago.

Played Oblivion but never gave it much of a chance. Never bought Fable or Fable 2. Kept telling myself RPG games are for losers, I dont have the kind of time to dedicate to those type of games.

Then came Dragon Age Origins. At 1st glance I was like yeah ... Read More

Ok Raven Squad is a game that combines FPS with RTS. In theory you would think omg this game would be amazing. However it is far from it. Graphically this game could have been way better.

The most annoying feature of this game is the voice acting. Terrible voice acting, well I should just say the people they use have really annoying sounding voices. Which after a couple of hours will make you just want to turn the sound off.

As a FPS, it is just ok. The zoom on ... Read More

So initially I wasn't planning on buying Batman. I seen the trailers for it and thought hmmm nice CG stuff. Seen it on Gametrailers for their review and thought hmmmm ok. Was in Walmart and seen people playing it and thought wow these graphics look good.

I thought about it some more and bought it. Pleasantly surprise with this game. To me this is what a 360 or PS3 game should look like. Graphically I give this game a 10. Because from the detail in the character faces, lips moving ... Read More
