Perfect Dark Zero is like Lara Croft meets James Bond, but more like a Sci-Fi story. I had played this one before when the XBOX 360 first came out. There were alot of bugs & glitches in this, but Rare had already fixed that problem. The game takes places in the year 2020. So, it is before the first game. This is game shows how Joanna became a bounty hunter or spy or whatever. The story in this game is not all that great. I had hard time understanding it, but the story is really boring. The multi-player is impressive. It brings backs the days when me and my friends were playing Halo like crazy on the original Xbox and this game is like it, but Halo is still better. You can have a friend with you on story mode as well.

Tomb Raider (2013) is way different than the other TR games out there. This one blows all the others away, and this one has more action, more blood, and a damn good storyline.

The game is about Lara set out to find the lost kingdom of Yamatai, in the Dragon’s Triangle off the coast of Japan. This game is like the TV series named Lost meets Uncharted. Uncharted has more action, and is less bloody, but in this game, you have more action and it is really bloody. That was like the first Tomb Raider game that was really bloody. This one is like an action horror game. The other games were were not that horrifying at all.

Onimusha: Warlords is kind of like one older Resident Evil game, but not. This game is set in feudal Japan, not in a mansion and you’re killing demons instead of zombies. This game has a good storyline. The story is about a samurai named Samanosuke. He kills demons to save his girlfriend, Princess Yuki. He has to kill demons so he can save her from Nobunaga.

Nobunaga is the leader of the demons. He gets help from a female ninja named Kaede. She looks your average ninja and she has tattoo on her leg. So, it like Kurosawa meets Legend of Zelda. It sounded like more Legend of Zelda when I was playing the game. The gameplay runs like Resident Evil. I had trouble with the controls. The controls are little bit easy, but not movement. To move your character, you have to use the D-pads instead of Analog stick. The analog stick is good for bow and gun. The graphics looks more like Resident Evil than PS2 graphics, but characters looks more like a normal PS2 game. The characters looks more detailed and look a little bit real.

The Elder Scrolls Adventures: Redguard is worst Elder Scrolls game that I ever played. This is one of their older games. This one is a year later after FF7 came out and FF7 totally blows off this peace of crap. I played this game about 2 hours and I was done. I can’t play it, because it looks really bad. This one is way worse than Saints Row 2 on PC. This game has bad frame rate, terrible gameplay, poorly looking graphics, bad voice actors, and DOS port.

Back in 98, everything went to Windows instead of DOS. I don’t why Bethesda put this on DOS. They should put on Windows because the game will probably run a lot better. The soundtrack is pretty good. It sound like a PSone or N64 game. The story is actually is pretty good. This game set before Oblivion and Skyrim. This game about this Redguard named Cyrus who is looking for his sister. The landscape in this game is Prince of Persia meets Pirates of the Caribbean. The story is pretty good, but this game should need to work on it little bit more.

Ace Combat 4: Shattered Skies is fun game for the PS2. This game will make you dizzy, if you play for a long time. This game is like a Japanese version of a Tom Clancy novel. This game is set in the fictional world of Strangereal, and spans the years 2004-2005, and this person talks about his story of when he was kid. So, this game is mostly about his story.

This is the first Ace Combat game that I played in the series. There are anime cutscenes in this and they look really good on a computer screen. I wish it ran like a anime show instead stopping it. The graphics do look similar to Ridge Racer V, but I think this game used the same design from Ridge Racer V. They almost look the same and they both look more detailed. It is Namco game, so it probably is.
