    • EA MMA

      Pros:
      - Good career with fun training but the abilty to sim it to keep you fighting more than training
      - great striking engine
      - Submission system is great, chokes in particular
      - multiple rulesets and rings/cages give a true international feel
      - Solid graphics
      - Live Broadcast > *
      - Good online community with fighter share and highlight reels

      Cons
      - Sometimes unresponsive controls
      - lack of special moves & unique animations (Manhoef should kick different than Lashley)
      - Too hard to get out of clinches/off the ground which is especially bad online
      - lackluster CAF

      Overall:
      Much better than it's competition. More realistic striking & sub system and a much better career. It needs way more animations and special moves, and it's missing a few fighters (Lombard, Bigfoot etc) but the gameplay, career and mutiple rulesets are so enjoyable. A few issues, but it's a great start for EA.

        • Castlevania Lords Of Shadow

          Pros:
          - Long game. You're looking at 15-20 hours which, for a linear action/adventure, is unheard of
          - Fluid combat & responsive controls
          - Beautiful graphics
          - Varied enemies & environments
          - Great boss battles
          - Solid story
          - Great presentation, cut scenes, voice acting & music
          - Epic ending

          Cons:
          - A lot of "WTF do I do" moments
          - Very linear level design
          - fixed camera can be a pain sometimes when platforming
          - Combat can grow stale after a while (though there is enough pacing with puzzles and platforming that it's not too bad)
          - Occasional framerate issues

          Overall:
          This is NOT a GOW clone by any means. Castlevania has always had big bosses, platforming and combat, now it's just 3D and while it borrows some mechanics from GOW it has it's own identity. and when something is done right why do it wrong for the sake of being different? Epic 15hr campaign. There's variety in everything here from enemies, to puzzles to environments. The best way to describe it is God Of War meets Zelda, meets Shadow Of The Collosus meets Uncharted. It does everything equally as good and some things even better than it's inspiration.

          Score: 9.2




          Fable 3

          Pros:
          - Story wise, it's the best Fable yet
          - New weapon leveling up is genius
          - Albion itself remains one of the most beautiful game worlds to explore
          - Spell weaving
          - Tough choices once you become king
          - Lots of content. Lots of treasure, keys and extras to find. A good amount of Side Quests
          - menu system and map is much easier and more accessible
          - Co-op is much improved

          Cons:
          - Breadcrumb trail sucks
          - Combat is rather lackluster
          - Game is incredibly easy
          - Not as many customization options
          - Interaction with NPCs is pretty bad. You can't choose your interactions

          Overall:
          Once again the folks at Lionhead try innovative things. The new weapon morphing is absolutely brilliant and I applaud Lionhead for always trying new things in a world of redundant FPSs and monotony. A number score wouldn't quite do this game justice, as there the issues (and sometimes disappointments, like lack of customization options) simply can't be ignored. But I loved the game and despite those issues it is one of my favorites this year.

          Score: 8.5

                  • I got reviews of some older games. Just got around to finishing Far Cry for the first time and also beat Mirrors Edge again.

                    Mirrors Edge

                    Pros:
                    - One of the most unique games of this console generation
                    - For a completely new style of gameplay, Dice executed it with near perfect mechanics
                    - Great artistic design
                    - Sound is probably a 10/10. The sound effects are all top notch. Voice acting is great and music is amazing.
                    - Time trials and speed runs add longevity and are very addicting

                    Cons:
                    - Very, very short
                    - Combat and gun mechanics aren't great
                    - Some levels where the design contradicts the premise of gameplay. IE very enclosed sections
                    - Poor AI
                    - random elevator rides hault the fast pace gameplay
                    - Story is mediocre

                    Overall:
                    A very unique game that does many things right, but a few flaws. I have no doubt that the sequel will fimprove as it was a first attempt at something truly unique, amazing and something that has never been done before. Despite its flaws, it's one of my favorite games this generation and should be played once by everyone. The originality alone bumps the score up.

                    8.7






                    Far Cry 2

                    Pros:
                    - A huge, truly beautiful open world
                    - A breath of fresh air compared to the many linear corridor shooters
                    - Missions can be approached in many ways. Night time with silenced weapons, , sniping, day time with mortars and LMGs or starting brush fires to flank, surround, trap or distract enemies
                    - One of the best game engines on consoles. The way trees and bushes shake when explosives go off near them, shooting off branches and bushes, starting huge brush fires... it's a truly impressive engine.
                    - Long game. About 30-40 hours
                    - lots of unlocks
                    - The health & healing system, aswell as guns jamming & breaking adds a great deal of immersion
                    - A great level creator

                    Cons:
                    - Lots of driving.
                    - With 2 HUGE maps and so much driving you'll mostly just want to get from point A to point B but with enemies chasing/shooting you every minute or 2 it can be incredibility tedious and frustrating to travel
                    - Mediocre AI
                    - Weak story. I didn't pay attention to anything said as it was so uninteresting
                    - Incredibly long loading and saving times

                    Overall:
                    This could have been the best FPS ever. Great in concept, and in a lot of ways great in execution. But the sheer amount of tedium and frustration that comes with being chased and shot what feels like every 30 seconds really effects the experience. So much in fact that this issue alone has likely deducted an entire 1.0 from the score. The story also could have been much better given the setting. It's flawed genius. If you're tired of the bullshit, rehash same ol same of COD like I am and want a unique FPS experience, this is it. Still a very solid game.

                    • Killzone 3

                      Pros:
                      - Great graphics with equally amazing art direction
                      - Improved controls
                      - Great set piece moments
                      - Pretty good enemy AI. They take advantage of the environment pretty well
                      - Solid multiplayer maps
                      - Good amount of variety in the campaign with a few different vehicles and a nice stealth section
                      - Helghan politics were intriguing

                      Cons:
                      - Horrible ending
                      - Friendly AI can be annoying
                      - Story is pretty "meh" with the exception of some of the political bsttles amongst the Helghast
                      - No online co-op

                      Overall: Despite a few issues, I enjoyed the game. Everything looked great and ran smooth with the exception of a few rare audio glitches that would cut sentences off or repeat the last 2 words. The campaign had some fun levels and multiplayer is pretty fun aside from the overpowered sniper class. The biggest drawback is no online co-op. I recommend PS3 owners pick it up.

                      8.4

                      Next review will be Little Big Planet. Also, wanted to update/recap some scores.

                      Fable 3: 8
                      EA MMA: 7.5
                      UFC Undisputed 2010: 6.7
                      Will recap some more later.
