Spec Ops: The Line
"My favorite squad shooter ever. Great all-around game, great story, great late game twist. Multiple possible endings."
"Very well made and fun old school side scrolling space shooter playable with up to 4 players local co-op."
"This was a really well done remake of the old Amiga classic."
"One of my all time favorites, but only after starting it on Xbox and switching to the PC version. The Xbox just wasn't powerful enough for this game but on PC it was amazing."
Max Payne 2: The Fall of Max Payne
"This game may not have aged that well, but a lot of things that are now common in FPS games originated in this title."
Alan Wake's American Nightmare
"Nowhere near as good as the original Alan Wake, but still great to be back in that world. It's a shame they didn't make this a full length sequel instead of an Xbox Arcade title."
South Park: The Fractured But Whole
"Really fun and great sequel to Stick of Truth. Game is really vast."
"My all-time favorite rpg/shooter."
Resident Evil: Revelations
"I really liked this game. My favorite Resident Evil game so far. The last battle is really hard. Thanks to Michael for beating the final boss. NOTE: If you're buying this for local multiplayer because the case says it supports it, THERE IS NO LOCAL MULTIPLAYER. There is online multiplayer for "Raid Mode" after you beat the campaign."

Resident Evil: Revelations 2
"Pretty fun main campaign in local co-op. The story and graphics are nowhere as good as the first Revelations. The game is fairly short. The two DLC add-ons are crap. The extra game modes and the 4 possible endings to the main campaign do provide some good replay value."
Beyond: Two Souls
"Presentation is good. Story is decent, graphics are good, soundtrack is good, voice acting is professional. There just isn't much game. It's more an interactive entertainment piece. The story is told over a roughly 20 year time period in the heroine's life, but the chapters are all seemingly disjointed, jumping back and forth through time. This is somewhat annoying but the reason the story is told this way is explained at the end. The story can be resolved in different ways and there are multiple endings. This is one of those titles where it should be relatively easy to obtain all trophies but it will take multiple playthroughs of certain chapters."

Uncharted: Drake's Fortune
"Nicely made game. Good graphics, great soundtrack, mostly great voice acting, pretty good story, good gameplay mechanics. The game is not very difficult. Playing on Normal difficulty, it was a pretty easy playthrough. The guns are too powerful and ammo is basically unlimited. Every gun except the shotgun is about as effective at long range as the sniper rifle."

Uncharted 2: Among Thieves
"Every other review will tell you this game is vastly superior to the first one. Not this one. While the game was longer and more technically complex than the first one, I did not find it better. I found the story to be inferior, the slew of new characters unimpressive, and the controls slightly glitchier during platforming. There is considerably more platforming to do in this one. There are more "puzzles" to solve, but the answers are all provided in Drake's notebook! Until the final couple of chapters, all of the enemies are boring clones with only 3 variations. The final two types of enemies are quite difficult, although there is a trick to easily beat the first kind. With one or two exceptions, all of the weapons are identical to the weapons from the first game, and almost all of the trophies are exact copies, too! Treasure collecting is more difficult in this game, especially after the first few chapters. The original game had 61 treasures to find, this one has 101. All of the character models except Drake still lack the same level of detail that he has. This game has multiplayer mode (not for the story), but I did not try it. Despite all of these complaints, I still enjoyed the game, but not as much as Drake's Fortune."

Uncharted 3: Drake's Deception
"This review is for the single player story only. First off, it's clear they decided to focus more on the multi-player game modes. The single player mode is only about 10 hours of game play, compared to 20-something for the first Uncharted and around 40 for the second. On the plus side, there are some really masterful technical achievements in the game that must have really pushed the PS3 to its limits. Unfortunately, unless you're really paying attention or watch the Making Of featurettes where they brag about them, you might miss them. All of our favorite characters are back for at least a few chapters. What we do have is pretty typical Uncharted fare by now. Good graphics, great soundtrack, great voice acting, good story, varied gameplay and scenery. The problem is there is just too little of it. The game goes by quickly, and isn't very difficult at all. The final confrontation is an absolute joke compared to Uncharted 2."

The Last of Us
"I really failed to see how this game is so well loved by most. I found it to be quite boring. I played the game when it was first released for a couple of hours and quit it because I couldn't get into it. Decided in 2019 to play through it to try to see what's so great about the game in most people's eyes. Managed to complete it, but still don't understand its popularity. Graphics were good, voice acting good, music mediocre, story so-so. Swarm fights can be very difficult. One of the most annoying things about the game is that in single player story mode, on a single playthrough it is only possible to get at most 3 trophies. All others can be only be gotten on a second playthrough! No way is the game worth playing a second time."

Shadow of the Tomb Raider
"A continuation of the story from the previous entry, Rise of the Tomb Raider, but set in sunnier less depressing locales (Mexico and Peru). This entry focuses more on Lara's trying to figure out who she was, who she is, and who she wants to become. While on her own mission to stop Trinity from doing something nefarious, Lara takes time out to help a couple of indigenous Peruvian villages with their own struggles. Gameplay is largely the same as the previous game. Exploring, platforming, locating tombs, solving their puzzles, escaping with treasures, weapon and outfit crafting, skill upgrading, all while being a one-woman Trinity extinction force. I found nothing particularly bad about the game, but nothing spectacular either."
Played: November 4th, 2019 - November 19th, 2019
"I love everything Remedy has ever made. This game, while definitely good, did not enthrall me to the level of previous games like Quantum Break, Alan Wake and Max Payne 2. I'll say one thing for this game: it is vast. There is a lot more to it than originally meets the eye. Lots and lots of secrets. If you just play according to what you're told to do, you'll miss out on a lot. The game is also brutally difficult towards the end."
Played: December 15th, 2019 - March 12th, 2020
Tomb Raider: Underworld
"The graphics and gameplay in this title are quite good. The story isn't bad but they could have put more effort into finishing off the story, especially with regards to the supporting characters, after the final fight. All-in-all, probably my favorite Tomb Raider game. And to this day, in 2020, it remains the final Tomb Raider story, chronologically-speaking, since the three games released after this one are all prequels. Will Lara ever have another adventure after this one or has she retired? LOL."
Played: May 4th, 2020 - May 12th, 2020
Lara Croft Tomb Raider: Legend
"Played the PS3 remastered version. Decent story, decent upgraded graphics. Controls are a little clunky compared to the newer games. I liked the puzzles. This outing has way more boss fights than any other TR game I've played. Not very long."
