Conclusion: Though the gameplay is not as compelling or demanding as the newest first person shooter, Peggle 2 is unique and offers a different way to enjoy your Xbox. I've always found Peggle 1 (and now 2) fantastic party additions, for the game takes almost no time to learn and can be enjoyed by the most casual of gamers.
Summary: With more blood, guts, and gore than any game you’re likely to see this year, Condemned 2: Bloodshot is a perfect poster child for the M rating and certainly in keeping with the dark and gritty tone set by its predecessor. However, the plot is more reactive this time out, diluting much of the intensity and drive to move forward. This largely leaves savage hand-to-hand beatings as the main incentive, and in that regard, the game certainly delivers.
Excerpt: Horror films and horror games share just about everything in common, including the fact that a truly good one is tough to find. Monolith and Sega have teamed up again for the latest installment in the Condemned series, Condemned 2: Bloodshot, to once again try to strike gold in a coal mine. The Premise: Condemned 2: Bloodshot is considered a first-person survival game.
Excerpt: Yes I am fully aware this game is a year old now but it still has relevance. That and we need to fill up some holes in our review calendar . So it’s no secret that monolith know how to make a kick ass FPS. Titles such as FEAR/FEAR2, SIN, NOLF, Condemned and many others prove that the company have to know-how and the technical chops to crank out good 3D worlds.
Conclusion: Killzone 2 is an outstanding game and a prime of example of just how powerful the PlayStation 3 really is. Is it the definitive killer game for Sony's machine? In my opinion Metal Gear Solid 4 still has the edge in that area, but if you own a PS3 this should be a must-have game for you. If you don't own a PS3 then this is yet another reason that you should consider buying one.
Excerpt: Here we go again—another game by Monolith, another creepy scare-fest. Remember when they made the campy and fun No One Lives Forever? No? Well, they did, though it seems like a long time ago. Lately it’s been all dark and gruesome, and Condemned 2: Bloodshot, the sequel to 2005’s Condemned: Criminal Origins, has got both of those in spades.
