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.

Star Wars: Republic Commando is one the best Star Wars games. This game runs like Ghost Recon in outer space. In this game, you give orders to troops, Shoot down droids, and kill a bunch of ugly aliens. When you are killing something in close combat, you get blood splatter on your helmet and your helmet has a wind shield wiper. I can see clearly now!.

Turok: Evolution is the beginning of the Turok series. This game has a good story and a good gameplay. For graphics, not so great. The graphics looks like N64 games instead a PS2 game. I would think that it looked a little more like Morrowind graphics. The characters’ design looked really bad. They look muddy and low res.

The story in this game is pretty good. Tal’Set was sent to the lost land after his people were killed by a Ranger. In this game you are helping the humans fight the tyrannic army. So, it is like the first game, but before the first game. The gameplay runs like Morrowind, but you can’t switch to third person view. I like the gameplay in this game better than the graphics. You can fly in this game. The flying gameplay runs like Star Wars: Rogue Squadron. The AI are sometimes are little buggy. The enemies in this game are sometimes are little stupid, but that’s not so bad. The game slows down sometimes.

When you want to just have some fun or want to instead fight your way through impossible odds then Mass Effect will deliver that for you in spades. In the Mass Effect you are Commander Shepard, an Alliance officer as well as N7 special forces and a candidate for Specter status with the Citadel Council. You are also humanity’s only hope to stop the coming thread from dark space just outside the galaxy, the Reapers. BioWare and Edge of Reality have done a great job of giving us an engaging and entertaining space adventure that will keep you coming back for more.

Max Payne is like a dark DC comics game, but this game isn’t from DC comics. It is a Rockstar game. Is Max Payne a good game? Well, yes and no. The reason why yes because, the storyline, the comic books cut scene, and the weapons. The storyline in this game is actually really good. This game is about this person, Max Payne, who lost his wife and baby. Now he want revenge on the Valkyr. The gangs who like them.

In this game, Max Payne is the like the Punisher. He will kill anyone who breaks the law. Well, he tries to obey the law sometimes. The comics book cut scene looks really good. At least it better than bad CGI cut scene. They look like they took some pictures from the actors and use the computers to put some details into it. Sometimes comics are usually done by hand. In this game, you will have alot weapon to choose from. Some of those weapon does do different kinds of damage. I found a shotgun called the Jackhammer. The Jackhammer does do High damages, fast firing rate, and has 12 rounds of ammo. I wish I had this weapon in Call of Duty.
