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.

Saints Row 2 is almost like GTA: San Andreas. This game has a good storyline and fun activities you can do. This game take place after the first Saints Row game. Ultor’s take over Stillwater and the third street saints were broken. It you job to bring back the saints and take over Stillwater again. Whats different about this game is you need to do some activities before you do the next mission. That is different for me. When I was playing 3 & 4, I do the main mission and do the activities later, but Saints Row 2 is different than 3 & 4 is. Some gamers think Saints Row 2 is better than 3 & 4.

Halo: Reach is one best Halo games that I have ever played in the series. This game has more action, more things you can do, more fun than COD series, and has a map editor. How cool is that? This was Bungee’s last Halo game that they made before 343 Industries took over the series. This game take place shortly before first halo game. The game begins with the planet Reach in the ruins, then flashes back to before the devastating invasion by the Covenant. When play this game, you will see Cortana as ancient artifact AI. I thought Cortana was made by humans, but she is an ancient. The graphics in this game are outstanding. They look more like a CGI movie. If this was movie, this will be great movie. The gameplay is more fun as well. The gameplay runs more smooth, but still lag every once from now. The soundtrack is really good. I sound like the same people who did Final Fantasy music. When I’m playing the game it does sounded like Final Fantasy. I would be cool if Square Enix did Halo. It would look like Final Fantasy XIII, the character would more like anime, and Cortana will look more like Yuna or Tifa. Now for the multiplayer. The multiplayer is really intense.

Halo: Anniversary is remastered version of Halo: Combat Evolved. I played this game over the Labor Day weekend and picked up my XBOX 360 at Gamestop. This game looked like a PS4 game. I thought PS3 has better graphics than the 360 did, after I played this game, 360 graphics looked better than the PS3. The level design looked intense and the gameplay runs better than before, but there is a little bit of frame issue.

The controls are easier than before. The original XBOX had alot of buttons and the controller was too big. When I’m playing this game on the 360, it feels like playing Halo on a PS2. The 360 controller almost looks like a PS2 controller, but with some differences. The graphics in this are outstanding and pretty good looking. This game looks really good on HDTV. You can switch to the old graphics with the back button, but why you want to go back to the old? This game has better graphics as it is.

Unreal Tournament 2004 is the most fun action arena game that I had ever played. The game is better than the Quake III Arena. In Summer, I was playing Quake III Arena alot. I want to play online but, couldn’t because Quake III had Gamespy and Gamespy is not around any more. So I started playing this game and modding it as well. This game is like Quake III, but even better. There are more things you can do, like assault, bombing, capture the flag, death match and even more.

I did play online as well and it actually fun, but it’s really hard and you have to wait the game to load. This game use the Unreal Engine 2.5. This Engine use the same on Unreal Champion 2 as well, which was on XBOX. The graphics in this game look amazing. It almost looks like a Halo 2. It has more details and more texture. I thought it was going to look like a PS2 game, but Epic Games tries to make to games look good and they did.
