Prince of Persia: The Forgotten Sands

Prince of Persia: The Forgotten Sands

But it was pretty average looking, so it left me with a game full of moments where I just felt like smashing my fists down onto the keyword. I really, really resisted the urge a number of times. I'm surprised so many people found this game fun. For me it literally gave me headache. Ubisoft did a poor job of the latest Splinter Cell, now another poor job of Prince of Persia.

Prototype

Prototype

Overall, Prototype is a decent game for a while. The combat and new abilities are fun. But by the second half (and this is a decent length at a good 10 hours) combat becomes a bit of a mess. With a copy/paste bland city, once you've played the first level of Prototype, you've seen everything there is. Not a good PC port and certainly an overrated game, but then the consoles have a lot of those, don't they?

Prince Of Persia

Prince Of Persia

Prince Of Persia is a great example of review websites not having a damn clue about what makes a good game - or they're all paid by Ubisoft to give positive reviews.

In fact a number of Ubisoft developed games have been over-rated lately; Rainbow Six: Vegas 2, Assassin's Creed and now Prince Of Persia. Honestly, IGN... a 9.3/10?!

Painkiller: Overdose

Painkiller: Overdose

This was originally intended to be an unnofficial fan-made mod for Painkiller. And it that respect, it's pretty amazing. That was until DreamCatcher allowed the developers to turn it into a full stand-alone game. If that meant sequel then in that respect, it's doesn't live up to sequel expectations - considering the content it's still just an addon - a double-sized expansion pack.

Prey

Prey

Prey is certainly not a perfect game; the flying and puzzles get old, the regenerating (no dying) system was a mistake, but the action is solid and design great throughout. Possibly the best shooter of 2006.

Peter Jackson's King Kong

Peter Jackson's King Kong

So while the gameplay was slightly held back with some annoying challenges, in particular playing as Kong, the atmosphere and design of the fantasy island made up for it for me.

Pariah

Pariah

Wow, another sci-fi first person shooter. Having just completed Rogue Trooper and talking about how similar it is to every other sci-fi shooter from Halo to Unreal 2, Pariah is identical again.

Project: Snowblind

Project: Snowblind

Project: Snowblind was originally supposed to be the third Deus Ex game. However since Deus Ex 2 didn't do well enough commercially, Project: Snowblind became it's own universe.

Painkiller: Black Edition

Painkiller: Black Edition

Painkiller is a game where you either love it, or hate it. Developed by a new studio from Poland, People Can Fly, Painkiller is one hell of a debut. I'm reviewing both Painkiller and the expansion pack Battle Out Of Hell, which is basically more of the original game.
