While the story is a great one presented in an engaging fashion, it's just not enough to save Mafia as a whole. The bland graphics, clunky controls, and atrocious load times (nearing 40 seconds in some instances) are nearly insurmountable shortcomings. Mafia and publisher Gathering may make you an offer, but believe me, it's one you can (and probably should) refuse.
The final chapter in Capcom's samurai & demons series, Onimusha 3: Demon Siege couldn't have been a better conclusion. Packed with everything from tender family moments to huge action-packed set pieces, the game delivers.
Game Description: Start out as a hitman, enforcer or getaway Driver -- you'll have to complete missions to earn the respect of other mobsters, plus Don Salieri himself. Deal with rival Morello family while controlling your rackets -- see if you can run all the gambling, extortion, smuggling and prostitution in the city. You'll need patience, skill and accuracy with a Tommy Gun as you fight your way through 20 dangerous missions. High-speed car chases, bootlegging, assassinations, bank robberies and more -- you'll have to do it all and avoid getting caught by John Law. Just remember, your actions have consequences -- don't hit any innocent people unless you want heat from the cops, and don't cross Don Salieri unless you want to wear cement shoes!
Game Description:Onimusha 3: Demon Siege takes the fantastic gaming of the Onimusha series to a new level. It's got dramatic new camera angles, advanced 3D polygonal graphics, new enemies and an incredible new story. Take control of Akechi Samanosuke one more time, as he's sent through time to modern-day France. He trades places with 21st-century French cop Jacques Blanc, who travels to feudal Japan. Fighting separately and together, they'll stop the Genma once and for all.
Which came first, the chicken or the egg? Or in this case, Prince of Persia or ICO? Looking at the question from a purely objective standpoint, Jordan Mechner's original take on the Prince clearly came first, but the matter isn't as simple as that.
Game Description: Play as an acrobatic Prince who can run on walls, swing off poles, jump and flip, sword fight, and slow down and even reverse time., The Grand Visir Jaffar has thrown a young prince into the dungeon. Jaffar has forced the prince’s beloved to choose between marrying his evil self...or death. Take the role of the prince and try to escape from the dungeon. You must fight through 12 levels of puzzles and guards, while keeping in mind the 60-minute time limit. Play The Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time and rescue the Princess in time.
Far Cry doesn't have an original bone anywhere in its well-sculpted body. Blasting my way across a tropical archipelago, I kept getting a sense of deja vu, as if I'd visited these places and shot these people before. It just hadn't been anywhere near as pretty in the past.
