Street Fighter IV dropped the ball with multiplayer.

Friday, August 21 2009, by smakus         1 Comment

Let me start by saying that (boss battle difficulty aside) Street Fighter IV is one of the best fighting games to come along in a while, and is certainly a great addition to the Street Fighter legacy. The feel is great, it has the right amount of characters and depth. The artistic direction, backgrounds...

Rather than write lengthy reviews, we'll hit them hard and fast in our first edition of the TG Review Roundup. 1) Tiger Woods 2009 ( ★★★★☆) I don't know if any of you played Tiger Woods 2008, but it was a flaming pile of steamy...

GTA IV Multiplayer is great... when it works. (★★★★☆)

Monday, May 05 2008, by smakus         23 Comments

I've spent a considerable amount of time with Grand Theft Auto IV, and I think it is probably the best game I've played in a very long time. We aren't even bothering to write a single player review because there are dozens out there, and the Metacritic score speaks for itself. I can assure you that aside...

Mass Effect: Bring Down The Sky DLC Review (★★★☆☆)

Thursday, March 20 2008, by userx         No Comments

Summary: Bring Down the Sky is the first downloadable content for BioWare’s epic game Mass Effect. It’s basically a side quest mission that involves the Batarians, and winds up being much shorter than I expected. Single Player: ★★★☆☆ It should be noted that if you do not yet have access to...

Rainbow Six: Vegas 2 Review (★★★☆☆)

Monday, March 17 2008, by smakus         5 Comments

To rate sequels is always a bit difficult. Sequel games have to stand on their own, yet since they have a proven platform with which they are built on, you have to be a bit tougher on them as well. Otherwise, it is just a re-hash of the same game. Does the same game deserve the same scores as the original...

To be honest, I'm not sure this game warrants a full review, so this may be all you see of this game here at TrustyGamer. Here is a quick rundown. Summary: You play a blatantly mal-adjusted teen entering a somewhat rundown private school of misfits. As you go about each day, attending class or resting...

Lost: Via Domus Review (★★★★☆)

Tuesday, February 26 2008, by userx         1 Comment

Summary: Let me first say that I like the TV show Lost, but sadly I have not followed it the past 2 years. This may be a good thing as far as reviewing this game. It’s fresh all over again with just enough familiarity. Lost is an adventure game based on the hit ABC television show of the same name...

Fifa Street 3 Review (★☆☆☆☆)

Monday, February 25 2008, by smakus         1 Comment

Smakus's take: The Fifa Street series of games have a somewhat interesting history. The original title was one of the first high definition games ever made for a console (on the original Xbox, no less). With arcade gameplay that generally mimics indoor soccer, the earlier titles found some success and...

N+ Review (★★★★★)

Friday, February 22 2008, by smakus         No Comments

Smakus's take: N+ is a game I had never heard of before the XBLA release. It was getting a lot of buzz so I knew this title would be something worth checking out. After trying out the training levels, I knew there was enough substance to justify a full purchase. I'm glad I bought it... in a nutshell...
