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.

The first Saints Row game was really hard. This game is about how saints were starting take over Stillwater and how the main character get blow up at the end of the game. The main thing to do in this is like the second game. You take over Stillwater and do some crazy activities. To start a mission you have to earn respect points before you can start a mission. In this game, you can’t play as a female characters like others Saints Row games. Lately, I’ve been playing this game 3-4 hours at a time, so I let the XBOX cool down about, watch some epsiodes of Attack on Titan, and play the game again. I’m playing the series in order.

Dragon Ball Z: The Legacy of Goku is an okay game, but this game is not all that fun. This is first American DBZ game that they made. This game is like SNES version of Dark Alliance, because it is only for the Game Boy. You have your health bar on the top left corner of the screen and the gameplay almost runs like Dark Alliance.

You can fly in this game, but you have a limited number of times you can fly. Which that is really stupid! When you play the game, you will see that game isn’t like TV show. The developers took bits and pieces from the show, and put it in the game. In the game, you see photos from the show and 2 short video clips. This game basically on season 1-3. So, pretty much from the Saiyans and Freiza saga. The graphics in this game are ok, but I have seen better graphics on Game Boy. The quests in this game are really boring. You save children and animals to bring back to their parents and pick up objects to bring back to the right owner. The music is sound pretty good. It remind me of the track from the old Square Enix games that were on the SNES. That is the only good thing about this game.
