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.

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.

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.

BioShock: Infinite was a great game that I enjoyed. This game set in the sky instead of under the sea. The graphics and gameplay have been improved alot. The graphics looks more detailed and has brighter colors on the PC. When you play the PC, it looks like a PS4 game. I had been playing the console version, and it looks muddy and low res. The gameplay on the other is fantastic.

I like the gameplay better than anything else. It sucks that you have only two weapons instead of more. In the first Bioshock game, you have more weapons to choose from. I don’t understand why the developers want us to have two weapons instead of more. The story in this game is confusing. You have to find a young girl named Elizabeth in Columbia. Elizabeth has the powers to open other worlds or different time periods (She’s a TARDIS!). Columbia is where you in this game. In Columbia, there are a bunch of racist Donald Trumps. When I got in Columbia, there was a white man who wanted to throw a baseball at a black woman. So, I threw it at the white man and got arrested. So, I fight back.
