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.

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

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.
