Assassin's Creed: Brotherhood
7 New from
I love Assassins Creeds.. I own them all and I believe they are some of the best games you can have. Before reading this review.. please understand that I have not got XBOX live at the moment, so I have only played this on single player.. so this review is solely on the campaign..
The game itself is great, just like the previous games.. you can go anywhere and do almost anything.. they have also imported from AC2.. the ability to invest in a city.. which I personally loved.
With regards to the missions, I believe they are slightly better than the previous games.. less chasing after people and more stealth.. A LOT MORE STEALTH.. which is an interesting improvement.
The biggest change of course is the brotherhood.. I dont wana give too much away.. but you are not alone any more.. you have friends to help.. which is GREAT for those tough stealth missions.
Now for the bad points.. like all ACs, this game is short.. a solid gamer with no side missions could probably complete this game in 12ish hours.. which isnt good.. it seems to be missing a lot of story.. this is the reason why it has only got 4 stars..
All in all.. a great game, and a must have for people who like assassins creed.. The campaign is very short but the missions are a little tougher and require a lot more stealth.. a good 4 star single player game.

This is just a good game..
its not the greatest game ever made, but it has improved since fable 2. The graphics are good, the fighting is good.. not laggy at all.. the mix of magic, melee and ranged is easy to do.. a little easier than the previous game perhaps... The story seems a bit short, or short compared to what i was expecting/hoping.
But taking this into account.. it is still a good game.. easy to play, and could quite easily spend hours exploring and doing quests.. so if your a fan of adventure games or RPGs then this would be a great game for your collection.. all in all 9/10..
Fallout New Vegas

If you are having trouble thinking about whether to buy this game or not, then let me make your mind up for you. BUY IT! This game is great. If you loved Fallout 3 then you will love this. The game itself is almost identical to Fallout 3 but has several improvements. The controls and game play are identical so if you didnt like how the previous game played then you wont like this one.. but if you did then there are no shocks to be had.
I think the reason why people have given this mixed reviews is because they expected an different game that Fallout 3.. Well this has not happened.. it has been tweaked and updated which I think is the best thing for it.. If it aint broke.. dont fix it.
So if you have played Fallout 3 and loved it.. get this game. If you didnt have the pleasure of playing Fallout 3.. get this game. If you didnt like Fallout 3 then its probably best you dont get this.. But in my opinion its a 5 star!
Age Of Empires III: Complete Collection
I own all previous age of empires.. that is just a testament to how great these games are. I cannot say enough about this game, it is brilliant. If you have played the previous age of empires or age of mythology then this is a must have game. If you havnt played the previous games then this is a must have game! From building a strong city to building a strong army/navy, you are immersed in the game as soon as you press load.
This game offers a large and fun single player campaign but it also has a great online community to play against which is free!
Age of Empires have turned into one of the best Strategy games out today, easily hand in hand with the Civilizations and Total Wars. If you are a keen strategy gamer then you must get this!.
Medieval II: Total War
13 New from
This game is awesome, it offers what a Strategy game should offer.
It is as in depth as civilization but you can fight all the battles yourself.. or skip them if you decide not to.. (what ever takes your pick lol)
You have control of an army of thousands, down to the individual squads of units. And who better than Medieval Knights.. You can choose one of many countries/factions and can command them to world domination. If you have yet to enjoy the games that are Total War then this is the game to get.. Easily a 5 star.

You have control of an army of thousands, down to the individual squads of units. And who better than Knights or perhaps the Aztecs.. You can choose one of many countries/factions and can command them to world domination. If you have yet to enjoy this expansion pack then you should buy this right away!..
The Settlers: Rise Of An Empire
2 New from
This game offers an interesting and sometimes challenging game, great for people who plunge themselves into a game. Like previous Settlers you need to use all your surroundings to survive, you must make use of all resources available to build a thriving community and a strong army. There is little change from the previous settlers, but it has seemed to development into a better game.
If you havnt played a settlers before then this game for the price of 6 pounds is a bargain.. It offers many hours of game play with a challenging and progressive story line. A good stratagy game!
Rome: Total War - Anthology

You can choose one of many countries/factions and can command them to world domination. If you have yet to enjoy the games that are Total War then this is the game to get.. Easily and always will be a 5 star.
The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion (Classic)
3 New from
If you like Adventure or RPGs then this is a great game to get. The world is huge, detailed and full of enemies, puzzles and missions. You have hundreds of opportunities to gain skills and progress your character in any way you like. There are thousands of people to interact with, hundreds of missions/side quests to complete and many challenging achievements to accomplish.
The graphics look a bit aged compared to more modern games but the depth of the game play more than make up for this. This game offers many hours of action packed and challenging gaming and is a must have for any Adventure or role play gamer.
Final Fantasy XIII
7 New from
This FF is a funny one, The first 15 or so hours are very basic, teaching you the game and giving you the story. There is no exploration, you just follow the path and fight whats in front of you.. This half of the game gets 2 star.
The second half of the game is more what you would hope to get from a FF, The world is much larger and allows for good exploration and discovery. This half of the game gets a solid 4 star.
If your looking to buy this game, be prepared for a slow start, but if you get past this you should get a good game and one you can spend many hours improving your team and gainging achievements..
