This was really fun!
You get to play both the good guys and the bad guys in this. Again, getting 100% completed was not as hard as Star Wars, but doable. Chronologically, it would have made more sense for the player to be required to do the villain missions first (most of them take place “time wise” before Batman shows up and ruins the villain’s fun).

Those of you who played the Lego Star Wars game will find this very familiar. I enjoyed this game, but it wasn’t quite as good as Star Wars (or Batman, which I review next). I couldn’t put my finger on why; even though there were things to point at (it’s shorter than either of the other Lego games, has some unique gameplay as far as Indy’s whip is concerned, etc.) none of those things really irked me. I just … didn’t enjoy this as much as I enjoyed Star Wars. Oh well. Continue reading Lego Indiana Jones
Needlessly difficult. Game animation poor.
There’s times when a game should be hard. But the times when that hardness is not due to an increase in difficulty, but rather a failure at camera/control programming … that’s needless. Continue reading The Simpsons Game
I was given a PS2 by my sister (newer PS3’s like mine being incapable of playing PS2 games). So I went ahead and spent money on Destroy All Humans! (1 and 2, actually – haven’t played 2 all the way through yet). Continue reading Destroy All Humans!
This is certainly a long game, covering each of the six Star Wars movies, each with six chapters in them (usually four are essentially 3rd person shooters, almost 2D style, and two are “flying” chapters – IE, Death Star attack, or the asteroid field flight of the Millenium Falcon). Continue reading Lego Star Wars: Complete Saga
I don’t usually bother doing game reviews, but I’ll be buying games very irregularly for my PS3 (and the PS2 I’m getting from my sister), so I figured I’d give you my impressions of the games I have so far.
The first one is Ratchet & Clank Future: Tools of Destruction. Very fun and interesting game. I never got the chance to play the earlier R&C games, but this one had a satisfying length to it, and I found myself going online to look at walkthroughs for a few of the “gold bolts” (which at this point don’t seem to be 100% necessary). There’s also the “holographic plans” for a weapon you’re really not supposed to have until you’ve been through the game anyway (if you realize you have all the plans just before you go into the final battle, and grab the weapon, the final battle is *cake*). Continue reading Ratchet & Clank Future: Tools Of Destruction
In the interest of full disclosure:
- I hate playing FPS games on anything other than a mouse and keyboard setup
- I hate FPS games where monsters pop up in front of you based on where you’re at

Okay, so I’ve had my Playstation 3 for a couple of days. Here’s my commentary so far: Continue reading More about the PS3
Okay, so I’m getting an HDTV. 42″ 1080p JVC LCD. I’ll be getting a cable upgrade shortly after it arrives, and I decided to drop some money on a PS3. Continue reading Toys: HDTV, PS3 (not all good), Cable
