Summary: I like this game a lot, I played the heck out of it, but the controls were kindof sloppy. also I didn't like how the weapons and upgrades took place, when you upgrade the weapons and abilities even if the new weapon or ability is weaker you can't go back to the better one you had. I would have liked more weapons options available and more special abilities..
Summary: it is a very fun game. i enjoyed it ,but it would be better if it had 2 more things. 1 system link. 2 less strange game play (the controls were ocward). the idea was great, and the game is very different than other games.
Summary: This game is a bit unpolished, like maybe they rushed production. Otherwise, it's a fantastic action adventure game. Great sci-fi take on Norse myth. Interesting characters, decent story. Graphics look good, but cut-scene animation is a little choppy. Controls are a little strange. Melee attacks are controlled with the right analog stick. Once you get used to it, combat becomes addictive. TONS of item drops throughout the game.
Summary: I bought this game for a very low price, and I think this is one of the best aquisitions I made regarding cost/entertainment. It in fact has a unusual controlling system, but 3 minutes of playing it make you understand how to shoot, how to hack and slash with R directional, how to control the camera with the pad. The profusion of weapons, armor and the way you can customize yourself is great, with different ways to end the game.
Summary: I would have loved this game ten times more if it wasn't so dungeon gameplay based. The customization for your characters armor and weapons is something I've never seen before in a game. The story line is great, mainly because I love anything Norse mythology. I really hope someone picks this game up and makes the second game. It needs to be more of a free roaming gameplay tons of side quests and be able to make decisions for your character.
Summary: I absolutely loved this game. I liked the extensibility of the customization system, the graphics were quite striking, the audio score was stunning, if not quite Wagnerian enough. I am a HUGE Norse mythology buff, so seeing just how true to the mythos the game actually was (Thor is *not* blond and beautiful, but a man-and-a-half tall, red scraggly hair and generally unpleasant to be around; Ymir had his head cut off; Loki is imprisoned with the acidic venom of a viper...
Good game, often overlooked, give it a chance, don't just mash buttons!

Summary: This is one of the hidden treasures of the xbox 360 console. Many players write this game off after the first few minutes of play, but a slightly deeper look reveals a rich action/rpg experience. The controls are different than any other game on the market, and because of that take a little more effort to master. I think this fact turns off many who are physically or mentally young. However, once mastered the controls are innovative and very fun.
Summary: I didn’t have a whole lot of expectations jumping into the second (or technically 3rd? or 4th, maybe?) installment in Visceral Games’ sci-fi survival horror series. I generally enjoyed the first game, even if it did result in me banging my head against a wall during those nightmarish turret sequences or the memorable y-axis flip during the final boss fight.
Summary: Dead Space took many by surprise with its creepy atmosphere and dark, ominous feel. Will Dead Space 2 uphold The Marker or succumb to its fate? Gameplay There are no real changes to DS 2 when compared to its predecessor. It plays like a third-person shooter and does so very well. The aiming is accurate and crisp, as it needs to be to dismember the necromorphs, the melee attacks are hardly strong enough to be worth anything and the curb stomp is still nice and squishy.
Summary: Ah Norse mythology, I know so little about it yet this game didn't feel like an alien concept. The game is so far off the actual tale of Baldr that even if you don't know anything about him or Mythology that it won't interfere with the game. That is not to say that the story that the game has is bad, its very good as a matter-of-fact despite being odd, twisting, and not true to its source material. But that's just Story let's move on to game-play... What can i say its...
