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.

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.

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.

This is a Free to Play game, but so addictive. If you have the patience to wait for your three turns, and the strategic mind to hold on to them, you will heartily enjoy this candy match 3 game that takes you around the world. New cities are added as the game is updated and upgraded. There are also tools that you can win or pay for if you don’t have the patience to wait for them to come along in daily events, lottery winnings, or other items.

You start in Sydney, and work your way westward, with various stops along the way in each town as you build up resources, like knowledge, building materials, and luxuries. There are also side puzzles that can help you gain materials by helping out scientists, city engineers, and media personalities. With each puzzle you get three attempts to earn coins to help pay for upgrades, resources centers, and game tools and enhancers. The bright candies are flavours of lemon yellow, cherry red hearts, blue raz triangles, green apple, chocolate octagons, and grape purple squares.
