Over The Hedge Review

IGN Entertainment
11 March 2010
  • Conclusion: The features that are marquee in Over the Hedge - on-the-fly co-op, combat/platform/collect combo gameplay, mini-games, unlockables - have all been done before, and pretty much better than in this title. Games such as Shrek 2 , Madagascar , and even Scooby-Doo! Unmasked all contain some level of camera control, and are therefore better choices than Over the Hedge when selecting a kid’s title to enjoy with your littler one.

Cold War Review

IGN Entertainment
9 February 2008
  • Conclusion: In the end, I can see where Cold War was headed. There are enough unique features to the stealth genre , such as the x-ray camera and assembly mode, to acknowledge their existence, but that is really it. The stealth aspects of the game are clumsy and unimpressive, the action scenes are equally as un-fun, and it is all rolled up in a rather lackluster package. There are some nice graphical moments in the game, but that is far from enough to save the experience.

Cold War Review

GameSpot
7 November 2005
  • Summary: Splinter Cell fans will be in for a familiar experience in Cold War, a competent but unremarkable stealth action game that puts you in the middle of a Soviet conspiracy.
  • Pros: Decent stealth action mechanics, along with some neat gadgets to play with, Storyline keeps you guessing and throws in a few good surprises
  • Cons: Enemy artificial intelligence is predictable but isn't believable, Not much variety or interest in level design, Little lasting value

  • Excerpt: MacGyver meets CNN's Anderson Cooper. That's the best way to describe Matthew Carter, the protagonist in Cold War. Matt is a freelance American journalist. Following a tip from an informant, Matt has arrived in Moscow to witness a top secret meeting between USSR leaders and the head of the KGB that might lead to the story of his career, but instead he becomes the story when he's framed for the attempted assasination of the Soviet president.

  • Conclusion: Cold War is a clear rental unless you a dedicated freak for stealth games. It's really too bad Cold War falls short in the actually gameplay because everything else in concept is rocking. Curious minds will be enticed by the cool features in the game, just lower your expectations because you won't find a Fisher here.
