Tony Hawk’s American Wasteland Review
11 March 2010
Conclusion: It’s hard to justify spending full retail for Tony Hawk’s American Wasteland when it has already been out on the Xbox for awhile. If you are a Tony Hawk nut, then of course you need to get this one for launch.
Conclusion: In the end NBA Live 07 probably isn’t quite as bad as we’ve made it sound, it was just so damn disappointing. For a game that laid such a promising foundation last year, there really hasn’t been as large a leap forward as we would have liked.
Conclusion: To call Call of Duty 2: Big Red One better or worse than the other sim-type FPS titles on the market is not necessarily fair, because there’s really nothing quite like it.
