    Dec 5th, 2012 at 07:56:27     -    Limbo (PC)

    Let me start off by saying that limbo is of the most original games I have played in my life. This black and white plat former really challenges any user that plays it but not in a bad way. Some games are challenging because the mechanics are hard to control or the game is to hard to follow. Limbo is just really complex and the puzzles take a great deal of thinking and intuition. It may take awhile to solve one but in once you conquer a puzzle you feel so great about yourself. I remember playing limbo and having like a little celebratory party every time I conquered a really hard or difficult puzzle. Limbo is a solid plat former with the focus of pleasing and challenging its audience and it excelled at it. Even the story line was good with this game. Limbo did everything it needed to do to make a great playable game. Hopefully these programmers will make another game soon that is just as good.

    Nov 27th, 2012 at 20:24:41     -    Assassins Creed III (360)

    The Assassin's Creed series has really captured the heart of modern gamer's. The saga in now on its fifth release of the series and seems to have no end in sight. Don't get me wrong its a good thing, to many games nowadays try and force this unreasonable plots and too predictable battle mechanic or even first person shooters. It's nice to have a game that doesn't just involve guns, mainstream stereotypical "bad ass marine" characters littering the screen. Assassin's Creed's gripping climbing and free running like mechanic and variable fighting styles captures all aspects gamer's want from large sandbox games. It also has an impressive story and reconstructive view of past societies. Such as old Boston in this case. No one has ever seen what Boston really looked like to the human eye till now yet today while playing Assassin's Creed we can walk the streets like people probably did back then from the comfort of our own homes. One more thing Creed features the involvement of multiple religious belief and features a good amount of historical and religious accuracy. Granted the characters from the games are not real yet their factions were and that is enough to involve very important dates of history and historical events into the game play. It shows how games can used for entertainment but also a way to learn or discover more about our world and our world's history.

    Nov 20th, 2012 at 09:50:24     -    The Oregon Trail (PC)

    If you asked me what my years in middle school or even what I learned in middle school the first thing that would come to mind would be Oregon Trail. Everyday rushing through my work in typing class just so I could play Oregon Trail. A simple RPG role playing game, with a strategy based decision mechanic. You decide your profession then your off in to unknown with your family and cart and either death or a brand new glorious life awaits you. Through the hardships of disease accidents and fast flowing rivers. Historically its an accurate description of threats settlers would face however as a game it's more fun then the settlers back then actually had.

    Nov 12th, 2012 at 23:58:30     -    Eternal Sonata (360)

    There is no doubt that games have taught me things about myself and one of my biggest lesson's was when I purchased Eternal Sonata. Never judge a book (a game in this case) by its cover. Looking at Eternal Sonata through the glass of the display case it seemed so innocent and a awesome adventure waiting to happen. Its art was incredible its story was unique, and the characters were very reasonable. However a game with the prettiest art in the world can't be a good game without good mechanics. Eternal Sonata's mechanics were... dismal at best. A turn based fight system didn't really fit well with the game. Plus the attacks and actual battle system had to be rated in the biggest degree of failure. It could have been near perfection but a simple mechanic based decision turns it into one of the worst games on the market today.
