Game: Need For Speed: Most Wanted
System: XBOX 360

Ok, this game is amazing. Racer fans, youll love it. Non-racer fans, it converted me. Basically you are a street racer who is sabotaged and loses everything, and has to start from the bottom of the heap. You work your way up the "Black List", that is, the top 15 racers in the city. You and your lovely assistant Mia, are aiming on taking down the top racer and winning your rep back.
The graphics are stunning. Everything is nearly seemless. I had no problems with lag, and there are no loading screens between different parts of the city.
The cars, 32 of them. Well, 33 counting the 'secret' car. You can customize your cars appearance and performance, more than the old NFS games, but the customizing system is not as great as that of Foreza Motorsport (<---for XBOX only)
And, overall gameplay. There are a variety of different types of races making for an original racing experience. It also helps to mix things up a bit so its not just just lap after lap. race after race.

This game is a deffinate buy.

NFS: Most Wanted gets an impressive 9.5 out of 10

DragonballZ Budokai Tenkaichi - PS2

theyve totally redone the fighting system on this one. to me it feels a lot more like a real dbz fight. your mobility around the arena is much greater than it was in previous budokai games. actual hand to hand combat is still very simple and often mindless button pushing, but it is a lot more stratigical because of the increased mobility. mid fight transformations are essentially gone, but all the characters are in tact. obtaining dragonballs is more entertaining, but still tedious at times. the characters are more customizable. ranking mode provides for a good challenge. overall the learning curve is longer than previous games and i would say mastering this one will take most people a bit longer.

8/10

gotta second timmos review, guild wars is a brilliant game, it is a really easy game to get into, the controls are no problem to get the hang of. teamwork is nice and simple, though once you start to understand the game you get a bit more depth and strategy. and the fact that all you have to ay for is you account, it is possible to download the setup pack, and download the bits you need as you go through the game, you dont even have to get up from your chair to get it. i love it and im not even a great rpg fan
9.8

now all i need is a pc capable of running it, so i dont have to be at my friends house to play it.

Hey I'm back, my computer finally un-died. Anyhow, Timmo is right, Guild Wars is an awesome game, but what tops that is the expansion: Guild Wars: Factions
hundreds of new quests and new items and all that good stuff, its like adding a game the size of guild wars plus some onto guild wars. It is better than the original and if you dont own them; buy them NOW. Why are you still reading. Go. Shoo. Btw, Factions can be run as its own game so you dont absolutley need the original, but it adds to the experience

Guild Wars Factions gets a 10/10

Also for those of you that play GW, my IGN is Brokk The Strong

Just Cause

Xbox 360


In this game you play as Rico rodriguez (this games full of stereotypes), a latin secret agent on a mission to overthrow thecorrupt government of the Cariibean nation of San Esperito. You will be aided on your journey by two other agents from your unnamed agency. They will assign you various mission for making nice with the guerrillas and not so nice with the government. You will also be aided by the Rioja drug cartel.... but in the long run, they dont matter that much.

The game plays like Grand Theft Auto, free roaming, vehicle 'commandeering', blowing up anything thats in your way madness. But it gives it a different feel being a good guy instead of a criminal. One major standout feature is the stunt ability, which was undoubtedly added to make the game feel more like a movie. When driving any vehicle, you are givin the option to jump out of it of course... or jump out of it... up onto the roof. From this position you have four options; jump off, jump to a nearby vehicle (if ones availabe) re-enter the vehicle, or, the games biggest (and one of the coolest) features, deploying Rico's parachute. This wil catapult you up into the sky, where you can glide around until you land. Or, you can cut the parchute and fall. But why would you do that? you ask. Wouldnt you hit the ground and die? Well, yes... if you dont re-de-deply the parachute. Yup. Re-deploy. Its always there. It can be put out and put away endlessly. And best of all, its not even rendered on Rico's back. Hm...

All in all, this is a great game, even when you finish it. The story missions go quick, but in order to finish the whole game, it will take weeks. Definatly worth the purchase.

9.5/10
