Repetition mixed with a weak story and a lack of vehicle customization kept Sol: Exodus from being more than a somewhat entertaining distraction. Space combat fans will find a lot to enjoy, but others may be put off by the lack of polish. It turns out that in space no one can hear you scream for Freespace 3.
If you are a Jurassic Park fanatic, you will be able to wring some enjoyment out of the locations and the aesthetic. In the end, Jurassic Park: The Game feels like it is trying too hard to be cinematic. It isn’t a particularly good movie and it’s a failure as a game.
Choplifter was the very first game I ever purchased for my first game console, the Sega Master System. I had a lot of fond memories playing Choplifter, both good and bad. Good memories of mastering the early levels of the game, and less than good memories at the frustration I experienced later on. Back then, much like now, I wasn’t exactly what one would call a highly skilled gamer. When I heard that an HD remake was coming, excitement quickly ramped up.

It is effortlessly charming, deceptively simple, and absolutely adorable without going into the realm of cavity-causing sweetness. It allows you to choose your own level of engagement, whether that is to romp though without a care in the world, or to take on the challenge of getting every collectable and gold medal.

The Holidays would not be complete without the release of a Call of Duty game. In fact, the economy may even have suffered without it. Fortunately for all of us Modern Warfare 3 will fill your heart with the familiar sounds of gunfire and explosions. For better or worse MW3 is extremely similar to past titles in the series. Some will find this comforting while others will be left wanting more innovation.
First off let’s get this out of the way – There are no late hits in NFL Blitz. I know this is shocking to some and it may sound like the heart of the game has been ripped out, but I assure you this one missing component is no reason to avoid this game. NFL …
