Tomb Raider III: Adventures of Lara Croft is the most painful and hardest game that I ever played. This game is more then Dark Souls. This game is like PS3 game Uncharted, but in the 1990s. This was before Uncharted. In this game, you have to find a strange ancient meteorite that crashed millions years ago. Lara is on her quest to find this meteorite. The first level was hard at first, when I figured things out I got used to it. After the first level, the game will get hard later on.

I hate the island in the South Pacific. That was most frustrating levels in that game. First you got look everywhere for a door or a key, then I had jump big giant leaves to go to plain crash, and finally, not least, jumping in the river and get eaten by piranhas! The graphics has changed from the first two games, but has some great texture and details.

Mass Effect 2 is one of best Bioware game and one of EA best titles. The story two years later after Shepard got killed by the Collectors and came back from the dead by Cerberus, In the first Mass Effect game, Cerberus try to kill Shepard, but Cerberus wants to stop the Collectors. The Collectors are using humans for experiment and making the Reapers with them. That is messed up.

Halo 2 is one of the best selling game for the XBOX original. I didn’t got the XBOX version but, instead I got the PC version. I had hard time getting the PC version up and running. This game was originally for Windows Vista, but I’m running Windows 10. I had play this game on the 360, but it looks really bad. 360 does have a bad backwards compatibility with the original XBOX games. So I got the PC version instead. This game got a OK storyline and great multiplayer.

The storyline shows how battle got started before Halo 3. This gameplay is almost like Halo 3 gameplay but, on the original XBOX. I like this game than the first game. The first gameplay was OK but, this one is better. Halo 2 is fun for multiplayer. I have so much fun with multiplayer then the campaign. The campaign is good, but multiplayer has more fun playing with your friends. The graphics in Halo 2 almost like Doom 3, but Doom 3 looks ten times better than this game. This game does look pretty good, but the characters looks bad, except the Master Chief, and Cortana.

007: Agent Under Fire is a good game for the PS2. This game is the first Bond game for PS2 and this game uses the Quake III engine. There 3 problems with this game. #1 is Bond himself, #2 is the controls, and #3 is the fact of the sound of the game.

The first problem was Bond isn’t like the other ones from the movies. This one looks like he came out of one the Superman and he doesn’t sound like Bond himself. When you play the game, he looks Superman without his powers. I don’t know this voice actor, but he does did a okay job for Bond. Problem #2 is the controls run like the Bond game from the N64. I don’t know why EA had to put old controls on this game. For N64 yes, but for PS2, no. You can change the controls in this game. I had found the controls that look like those from Halo. So, I used it instead, and it helped. Now for problem #3. Problem #3 is the fact if you do something cool, you get to hear the theme song over and over again. It was really annoying. I didn’t turn it off, but you deal with it.

Dead or Alive 4 for the XBOX 360 was a great game when it was first out. You got more time to play the game instead buying DLC’s, but in this game there are no DLC’s at all. You have to work hard to unlock some of the characters, all of the outfits, and getting the endings.

This game was one best fighting of the games of all time and it was more challenging than other fighting games out there. I had a hard time unlocking characters and there outfits, and which I am still trying to do. I have already unlocked the characters, but trying to get their outfits. This game has 6 modes. Story Mode, Versus, Team Battle, Time Attack, Survival, and Online. I never played online on this and I don’t think it is available any more.
