The Saboteur

saboteurLet’s run down the good the bad and the ugly on this game.

Just released today for the XBox 360, PS3 and the PC, this game for the most part is getting good reviews.

The graphics in this game are amazing and the mixture of black and white with color is phenomenal.  The shooting is of course a TON of fun.

Then there is the bad.  It’s said that the driving controls aren’t at their best.

The ugly-certain stealth elements are underdeveloped.  They could have used a little more testing in this area before releasing this game.

Halo 3: ODST

Halo 3Please, please, please tell me you’ve had a chance to check out the latest in the Halo series?  If not, you have no idea what you’re missing!

In this version, you are no longer the Master Chief, you’re just a UNSC soldier known as a ODST (Orbital Drop Shock Trooper) and you’re missing is exploring the ruins on Mombasa to find your missing teammates.  Not an easy task at all of course, but WAY fun.

Sales (as I expected) are soaring on this one.  You can’t miss all of the exciting multi-player action.

Resident Evil 5

I have mixed feelings about this upcoming release.  I have always thoroughly enjoyed the Resident Evil series.  For as long as I can remember it’s been one of my favorite horror action games.  At this point I’m just honestly hoping that it’s a throwback to the original RE series.  I’m talking RE 1, 2 & 3.  I have played every single release in the RE series and yes I’ve been disappointed with the later releases like many RE fans were.  Part of the pleasure with Resident Evil is the scary music playing in the background, the difficult puzzles that really get you thinking on your toes, and of course the horror, sheer horror that is RE.

Red Dead Redemption

Rockstar Games announced it’s new sequel to Red Dead Revolver today titled Red Dead Redemption.

They plan to complete it and release it some time this fall.  It will be available for the PS3 and Xbox 360.

Set in the Wild West you will play the former outlaw John Marston instead of Red Halow as was in the previous release.

Not much is being released at this time about the gameplay itself, but with Rockstar’s RAGE engine, this is bound to be an amazing gunslinging game.

I myself am obsessed with combat games.  The thought of experiencing the full motion range of a ninja definately makes me want to get up and get this game today.

Rock Band 2

For any Rock Band fan, mark your calendars for December 18, 2008.  That is the day that Rock Band 2 is being released for PS2, PS3, XBox 360 & Wii.

This version is an upgrade to the previous one on many levels.  Some new additions:

1. Switch Instruments
Anyone who played Rock Band knows that you were unable to change instruments.  Well now you will have the option, which I think is going to be a huge plus.

2. Advanced Character Customization
Just like you could in Rock Band, in this second release you are able to customize your character.  This time though there are some really cool features that were not in the previous version.

Call of Duty: World at War

I really want to hear input on this one.  I personally love Call of Duty Modern Warfare, so I was anxious to see this one.

There is a ton of action as is to be expected and I have read many reviews on this game.  Some for it, some against it. 

No matter what anyone says, if you’re a Call of Duty fan, than you will remain one.  When you’re playing this game you just feel like you’re there.  You’re in the mix, it’s all about you and surviving the war.
