My game of the day is Half Life 2. I like this game because of the graphics/ story line and everything else lol it was one of the resons why I built my own pc. This game kicks ass and should be played by every FPS'er as in first person shooter. If you want to wait you can get it for the x-box real soon.

. . . . . . . .DARKWATCH. . . . . . .
Overall - 8/10 -Excelent; Higly reccomended.

Gameplay - 10/10
The game runs smooth as an FPS and keeps the action intense the whole way through. In the parts where it starts you calm down you're alwalys wating for an ambush. Very well desinged to keep you on the edge. The variety of enemies is also a plus, and even for some enemies which are the same, mainly Reapers (Which you become very familiar with) sometimes are found carrying different weapons.

Antoher interesting aspect for this FPS design was the Roleplaying choices.(Albeit limited) Which directly affected what abilites you gained throughout the game.

Something that added aditional strategy and difficulty to the game was regional impact damage. If you shot somone in the arm enough that arm would come off, but they'd still keep coming, some enemies would even keep coming after they lost their head! (albeit blind so only noise would give away your location... then again you're going to keep shooting so...)

Graphics - 7/10
While not perfect the graphics were excelent, and realy brought you into the game. The monster graphics were superbly done. Where they were lacking was in the senery, it was still on a level equivalnet with Halo which wasn't bad, however not what it could have been.

Sound - 8/10
The sound in this game was excelent. The various tracks realy helped set the mood, and ranged from a heavy gothic track to a typical western showdown theme played in a heavy metal style, which helped all the more to set the mood of an intense action scene set in 1876. There were however many repeaded sounds (Many of the enemies sounded almost too similar, and there wasn't a great deal of sounds for enemies walking etc. (Lack of detail noises)

Controls - 10/10
With a few minor exceptions the controls were very much like those in Halo, and were very responsive, as well as easy to use, and once mastered you can pull off some neat tricks too.

Dark angel: Vampie Apocalypse

Overall score 7.8/10-Great game give it a try


Gameplay-8.2/10
This is a classic game where you're running around killing stuff doing missions. Unlike Jak2 which kinda messed this system up Dark angel did this justice. The enemies in the dungeons stayed dead always a plus the creatures were ganging up on you but you never felt too close to the action. While you see the same monsters quite a few times. This game is done in third person and does something other companies never tried they made the villagers have weapons. So you arent finding yourself fighting 8 or 9 monsters in a town by yourself very nice. There was however no annouced I'm not horibaly far in the game though. There are tons of weapons and armours and bracers. Multiple effects of the same weapons armours bracers etc. oh and radar yay radar!

Graphics=7.5
Unfourtantly this is an older game so the graphics are not up to the par of other games like soul cailber 2 Jak 2 etc. The graphics still mantined that creepy feel to it though and there were tight corners defaintly giving me that "whats coming next" kinda feel

sound-8.3/10
Like darkwatch this game is dark and "gothic" The music draws you in well and while randomly running around dungeons you hear stuff like creepy laughs and "I'm coming for you" then this freakyrock starts playing and when the monsters die they make sounds like howling and "you'll regret that." while reptive they still do it just creepy enough for it to keep you ingrossed.

contorls-10/10
A soild 10 the controls while a tad confussing at first the controls are solid and once you've gotten ised to them they will be very fluent.

DELTA FORCE BLACK HAWK DOWN

Pros: good graphics, many.... many guns! Strategic but extreme shooting gameplay, different vehicles to take command over. AMAZING MULTIPLAYER EXPERIENCE!
Cons: Shooting people can be to some people repetitive.
I give this game a 9.5! Check it out!

Everquest 2 is my choice for today. Great game, great graphics and the best part it never ends. It may not be as popular as WoW but it looks way better and the controls feel good. Play it if you either have dial up or cable.

Game Of The Day: YU-GI-OH 7 Trials Of Gory

Pros: Plays just like the actual card game and everything else, Graphics are good for a gba game. You can battle everyone from the series, there is even Hidden characters. Over 1000 cards to collect and play as. You can over 15 decks to use. Game takes a while to beat.

Cons: I have not seen any yet, but there is one that gets on my nerves, Its when you see who is going to go first and when you have to do rock paper scissors. You seldom win and always have to go either first (Mostly) or Second.


All in all I like this game, I dont know if its as good as sacred cards (My personal fav) But I give it a 9/10. So YU-GI-OH fans this game is decent try ti out. :D

My game du jour: Atalier Iris: Eternal Mana

Pros:
- Funny in places
- Loads of unlockables
- Great item synthasis program
- [spoiler]Female characters in skimpy clothing as an unlockable![/spoiler]
- Developed storyline with interesting plot twists

Cons:
- Monsters are wimps until about 3/4ths of the way through, then become moderately hard until near the end, (in the bonus dungeon) when they become near impossible to beat
- Blah graphics, especially the characters when seen from a distance
- Annoying mana creatures, especially Popo
- You have to put in a LOT of effort to get the best weapons and armor in the game
- Not enough cueparts

Overall rating 4.9/10. Thumbs sideways, but going down slightly.
