CGRundertow MEDAL OF HONOR: AIRBORNE for Xbox 360 Video Game Review

Medal of Honor used to be the benchmark that all other FPS games were measured by. After all, it introduced us to a cinematic and action-packed look at how horrible war could be, but after a while, other games came along that took some of the spotlight away. Call of Duty 2 became the go-to World War 2 shooters, and it was time for some innovation to be injected into the Medal of Honor formula. Fortunately, what EA came up

CGR Undertow – [ENGO] review for Xbox 360

Some games try to convey a story. Some games press the boundaries of the hardware just for the sake of it. Some are just a vehicle by which you express your dominance. [engo] strives for the latter. Because who doesn’t like tachikoma-looking quadrupedal robot tanks blowing each other to pieces while avoiding various and sundry deathtraps and environmental hazards? I know I do. And if you can do it all on the indie channel for a buck, so much the

CGRundertow SONIC GENERATIONS for Xbox 360 Video Game Review

My generation grew up in 2D. My generation didn’t have to worry about shaky, wildly-panning camera and perspective shifts. My generation was happy with running to the right, really really fast, grabbing rings and chaos emeralds on the way. My generation knew – or thought it knew – what blast processing was. My generation may have been kinda stupid in this regard. My generation was left behind by the shift of the Sonic the Hedgehog series to a 3D, three-quarter

CGR Undertow – SNIPER ELITE III review for Xbox 360

I’ll tell you what I love about these games. They’re so subtle. See? I mean, what really killed him? It’s Sniper Elite 3, for the Xbox 360. Video games are kind of a ridiculous thing, and I’ve played a ridiculous amount of them, but I’m not sure I’ve played any as ridiculous…as these. The Sniper Elite games. If you haven’t had the pleasure, well, grab the lead vest, nurse. Prep the x-ray machine. ‘Cause this is basically what the doctor

CGRundertow UPBOT GOES UP for Xbox 360 Video Game Review

Adjective Noun Verb Adjective. Overused meme is overused. Let’s get over that and focus on the important part: what makes a good puzzle game. As anyone at Nintendo can tell you, all you really need is a very basic idea, executed perfectly. Upbot Goes Up has a very simple premise: You have blocks, they move when you press a button, you need to get them to certain places. Kinda like Boxxle, but on the 360 instead of a Game Boy.

CGRundertow THE ELDER SCROLLS V: SKYRIM DAWNGUARD DLC for Xbox 360 Video Game Review

Seems Bethesda is the latest to catch vampire fever. Not that vampires and undead haven’t been present in Tamriel long before the days of Bella and Edward, but if you’re like me I don’t really need anymore vampires. Luckily however, whether you love the bloodsuckers or not you can live out your opinion by becoming a vampire lord yourself or hunting them down and firing a wooden bolt straight into their hearts. It’s the Dawnguard DLC for Elder Scrolls V:

CGRundertow LOST PLANET: EXTREME CONDITION for Xbox 360 Video Game Review

Capcom has been in a little bit of trouble lately. Although their franchises like Resident Evil, Street Fighter and Dead Rising are still selling well, they’ve also had some games that just didn’t attract the attention the company expected, like Dark Void and Bionic Commando. There’s one game, however, that Capcom has released a sequel for, and is getting ready to release another in the future. This series mixes an awesome setting with great combat to create a title fans

CGR Undertow – PAC-MAN AND THE GHOSTLY ADVENTURES 2 review for Xbox 360

This isn’t what’s best in life. I’m sorry, but that’s one thing we can be sure of. And if anyone cares to explain to me how I’m supposed to feel about coming back to it… I mean, I’m all ears. Pac-Man doesn’t even have ears. How’s he to hear the lamentations of the women? That’s what’s best in life. It’s Pac-Man and the Ghostly Adventures 2. Speaking of crushing your enemies, I’m this game’s enemy. And it’s crushing me. I

CGRundertow WARP for Xbox 360 Video Game Review

I can’t begin to count the number of games where you’re trying to protect Earth from an alien. Maybe it’s a shoot-’em-up. Maybe it’s an FPS. But there are things from out of this world about, and your idea of diplomacy comes at the end of a gun. Well, sir, you’re in dire need of a paradigm shift. How would you like it if you’re just a lost little alien, stranded on this scary planet, when all of a sudden
