True Crime: New York City – Review

True Crime: New York City is missing the key words Streets of that would enable people to easily identify it as the sequel to 2003's True Crime: Streets of LA. Other things it's missing include an ending that makes sense, a decent framerate, and missions that don't crash the Xbox destroying two hours of unsaved gameplay.

Prince of Persia: The Two Thrones – Review

It's been a long road for the Prince of Persia. Coming from out of nowhere to score a smash reinvention after years of lying fallow, the masterful Sands of Time was both a surprise and a pleasure. The sophomore followup, Warrior Within, was an effort that was structurally admirable, but left many cold with darker aesthetics and harsher tone. Unlike some developers, Ubisoft must have been paying attention to the unhappy comments because this third iteration, The Two Thrones, is a solid return to the form and style that made so many sit up and take notice.

Prince of Persia: The Two Thrones

Game Description: Prince of Persia: Two Thrones picks up the incredible action and adventure of the series with an all-new chapter. The Prince has returned from his adventures with his love, Kaileena. Instead of the peace that he longs for, he finds his homeland ravaged by war and the kingdom turned against him. The Prince is captured and Kaileena has no choice but to sacrifice herself and unleash the Sands of Time to save him. Now a fugitive, the Prince discovers that past battles have given rise to a deadly Dark Prince, whose spirit gradually possesses him.

X-Men Legends II: Rise of Apocalypse

To face this incredible evil, the X-Men and their rivals in the Brotherhood Of Mutants will unite—but even that may not be enough. Fantastic enemies and environments taken directly from the classic saga—Demolish over 100 different types of enemies, from hordes of Apocalypse's henchmen to Lady Deathstrike and Apocalypse's 4 Horsemen—in locations like the Weapon X facility, the Infinite Factory, Egypt and the North Pole.

X-Men Legends II: Rise of Apocalypse – Review

The original Legends scored high marks for a number of reasons—it was a game based on a comic book license that managed to not suck, it was an action RPG with everyone's favorite mutants from the X-Men universe, and it was simplistic enough with its hack-and-slash gameplay that almost anyone could grab a controller and get in on the action. Rise of Apocalypse earns high marks for all the same reasons, plus the addition of online cooperative play—the one thing the first game was missing that really seemed as though it should have been included.

Call of Cthulhu: Dark Corners of the Earth – Review

Despite the minor nitpicks, this is a great game that has sleeper hit written all over it. The guys at Headfirst Productions certainly did their homework and researched the material before making the game. The end result of their labor is a rock-solid videogame that almost perfectly captures the dread, majesty, and sheer abject terror of Lovecraft's world.
