"I guess the GT games are the best racing games available for Playstation consoles, but I found this game to be inferior to Xbox's Forza series."

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."

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."

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 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."

Resident Evil 6
"Let me start by saying that there is A LOT of content in this game. Story mode consists of 5 separate but interwoven campaigns. The first four campaigns can be played solo, local co-op or online co-op. The final campaign can only be played solo. It is a single story told from the point of view of 3 partners (Leon and Helena, Chris and Piers, Jake and Sherry) and solo protagonist/antagonist Ada. The campaign features most of the typical Resident Evil fare, plus a whole lot more: Buddy combat in close quarters, but also across huge arenas (new for RE). Puzzles. Collecting. Lots of weapons. Insane bosses and super-bosses. Except for the prologue, each campaign consists of 5 chapters, and each chapter has many sections/checkpoints. Most chapters play between one and a half to two hours in length when playing solo on Normal difficulty. There are also extra campaign chapters that can be purchased as DLC. Beyond the campaign, there are additional solo and multiplayer game modes as well. With so much content, it seems like parts of the game were developed by completely different teams. You may sometimes feel like you're playing completely different games from one chapter to the next. Still, it is mostly a well put-together game with a decent story and presentation."

LEGO Marvel Super Heroes
"This is a pretty easy game though it is quite vast if you include all the optional stuff. Completing the main story completes 15-20% of the game. The rest is in optional side missions and quests. The writing is aimed at children and the voice acting is uneven. A handful of characters are voiced by their MCU actors, but most aren't. There are about 100 Marvel universe characters that can be unlocked and played. The whole game can be played solo or couch co-op. The way co-op is handled on screen is pretty cool and befitting of a comics-based game."

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."

Dangerous Golf
"This game is made by the team that made some of the Burnout racing games. This game blatantly copies many of the elements of Burnout 3: Takedown, particularly Crash Junctions are now Smash events where you try to break as many things as possible in a closed room with a golf ball before running out of time. Crash Breakers are now Smash Breakers. Same medal and World Tour system for advancing to new events. Even same menu system. The game is ok but the novelty wears off very quickly. I wish the developers would have just made another Burnout game instead."

"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."

"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."
