Summary: For the most part, this is a good game. That is except for the bosses. Some are timed boss battles, and it is not clear-cut as to what you are to do. The boss battles range from super-easy to super-hard. Anyway, the basic level fights are fun, but that is all. Oh, and it is easy on the levels, just the bosses are weird. The controls are really awkward. R2 is shoot, R1 is reload, and L2 is aim. The game DOES have a very nice cover system, however.
Summary: Liked the whole breaking the 3rd wall type game. Voice acting is perfect . You actually get the jokes if your a gamer. A little repetitive action but still entertaining . Bosses are sometimes a leap in difficulty which can take away from the momentum . I liked the game for its no brain required game play.
Summary: Eat Lead is the story of an 80's video game action hero appropriately named Matt Hazard. Hazard is a guy with a gun and a catchphrase, doomed to star in video gaming's most ridiculous cliches, from space marines to zombies. After a long and arduous career of hits and duds, Matt finds himself in a new game, but someone out there is hacking in and wants him dead.
If you're a child of the 80's, you'll enjoy this game.

Summary: The run and gun gameplay gets repetative, but the story is fun and never takes itself seriously. From the Shatner sounding Gandalf looking character to the video games that it parodies, this is an enjoyable game that makes many pop culture references. If you've never seen a Schwartzenegger movie, some of the jokes will fall flat, but what are the chances that you haven't? Worth a rental, but no replay value.
Summary: This was a great game, being on the "Next Gen" there were places that it lacked and sometime the controls were sluggish or wouldn't do exactly what i wanted it to, but overall this was a steal for the 29.99 I paid for it in early June. First off the voice acting is great, it's funny, snappy and overall good. If you're into celebs in games they are there. I actually found myself laughing out loud probably more than 5 times. I mean this game is that funny.
Summary: For those of you who read Game Informer for your game reviews, I believe they got this one wrong. While it received a 7, I think a more correct score is 8. It might be an action/adventure/shooter, but it doesn't follow the same old formula. With the sarcastic wit of the hero, this game is a little reminiscent of Duke Nukem.
Summary: I bought this game for the easy 1k achievement points. You can get all but 4 on your first play though. Two of the remaining can be easily gotten. The only one that is really difficult is trying to kill 3 testers with 1 grenade. They are in short supply so you have to save them. Plus these guys more around a lot so your lucky if you ever see 3 close enough to kill with 1 grenade. Other wise its well worth it.
