Sooo, I wanted to see what it felt like to be a critic sooooo all of you who want some particular games reviewed by me or other people can put the titles here. Of course I'll have to play them already so titles I haven't played can't be reviewed, and also just because I'm a gamer, doesn't mean you guys really care about my opinion so I'm also dragging Lupin into this to help with the reviewing for if we're combined, we have Xbox, Wii and PS3. Alright guys, fire away.

Game: Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2

Rating: 9.2

Goods: Diverse storyline, Enhanced multiplayer, Large community

Bads: Short campaign, No Co-op Ccmpaign capability, Stupid blood imitations

Overall: MW2 being the most anticipated game of 2009 is worth the 59.99 plus tax, every single penny. It is not an overrated game and lives up to it's name. The Campaign(being a follow-up to CoD 4) offers an extremely diverse storyline and allows the player to play as an Army Ranger, a Task Force 141 member and a terrorist(for one level, and you can skip this since it requires the player to kill civilians). The campaign allows you to see the storyline at different perspectives and allows you to use a variety of weapons native to the main two factions. It allows players to play according to their preference, for example: Task Force 141 is a spec ops faction, which means few against many, customized special weapons, cloak and dagger and small team tactical action. Army Rangers is focused on many against many, relying on the AI for most of the time to watch your back against hordes of enemies, and well known weapons such as the AK-47. After you beat the game, you will be able to come back to these levels and choose which one's you like the most, you also unlock the Museum level which I won't spoil. One of the major disappointments I experienced was the fact that Co-operative campaign was no longer existent. It was however, replaced by some new thing called Spec-ops. You can play alone or with a partner, basically, it's all the challenging parts of the campaign that have been taken, and made harder. It's nearly impossible to beat by yourself(unless you're a noob and you play on one star difficulty) and it's extremely hard to find a friend online to play with, because if both of you don't have full bar connections, both of you will lag during the missions. Now for the best part, online multiplayer. It is apparent that Infinity Ward has focused on the multiplayer and not so much on the campaign. Things that made the multiplayer so enjoyable was two new features, the callsigns and customizable killstreaks. Callsigns and emblems are attained by completing challenges online or simply by leveling up, same goes for the callsigns. Players are allowed to pick which one they want and add it to their Callsign adding a new sense of "Identity". Unlockable killstreaks allow the player to pick killstreaks according to their level of play that differ from previous CoD games where the killstreaks were set. Of course, you'll get noob tubed once in a while or you'll get raped and there's some noob camper in the corner or there's some stupid whiner about how everyone's camping and you'll find youself raging, but there are times where you do the raping and make everyone angry. Besides all this, MW2 is a solid game and you'll find yourself playing the game over and over again.

Lupin, I'd like to see what you think about Assassin's Creed 2, if you have the first one, tell me what are the differences because I'm thinking about buying it. Thank you.

Well, I do have both for the XBOX 360, and I'm sure that the games are similar to their PS3 counterpart.

Assassin's creed 2 is a decent game that is deserving of it's title, instead of following the view of a highly trained specialist assassin, you follow a new assassin that is being trained to creedly things.
There are several pleasant new things that have been implemented:
-More abilities
-Creative new assassination formats
-Completely new cast of characters that flow well
-Very many more gather-ables
Although sometimes I get the feeling like they were trying to upstage the first one with a few too many extras such as:
-Currency system
-Stores
-Mini-games
-Many customizable things
One thing though that I honestly did not enjoy, was the fact that you cannot go back to a earlier sequence to relive the adventure. All in all though, it is a fresh taste of assassin's creed, it's different, but if you wanted the first one to be more of an RPG, than go with this one.

8.7

So yes, buy it.

Ok.
From Pokemon XD they decided to make a Pokemon game for the Wii, pretty much epic failing the entire game. Firstly, they went back to the old format way back from Nintendo 64, with multiple coliseums with a number of battles you can play. You can only choose from 2 teams, thats right, 2. However, if you have a copy of Pokemon Diamond and Pearl*, you can transfer ALL of your pokemon to the game, team and boxes. Makes up, but it gets boring pretty fast. 2 stages don't even allow you to use your D/P pokemon, you must use either rental pokemon, or a selection of pokemon to clear the level. I have been having trouble clearing a stage all because of those rules. However, if you can defeat the game, you can send over a Pikachu to your D/P game with a special Surf move. Additionally, you can also type in a code to get a Magmortar and an Electivire. Worth the time? If you've got some to kill. The pikachu is nothing too special, and the Magmortar and Electivire don't really have special moves either. Overall, around $40-$50 for a game just to get those 3 pokemon are kind off a waste. However, the good side is that you can connect on Wi-Fi and play against other people. This function is much better than the Nintendo Wifi battles on your DS.
Seems like they should've stuck with the Pokemon XD type of storyline instead.

Overall, I give this game a 6.2. Average game, good graphics, reward pokemon are ok, but they recycled some music from XD. Lazy?

*please keep in mind that Platinum was not made yet when this game was released.

Game: Little Big Planet (Playstation 3)

Rating: 9.8

Goods: Large variety of objects, Lots of customizations that allow personalization, Lots of creativity

Bads: MUST....BUY....ADD-ONS!

Overall: Little Big Planet in my point of view, IS THE BEST GAME EVER. It's one of those extremely rare games that appeals to all age groups, and it's rated E as an added bonus. Sackboy, the protagonist, is you, and you are able to customize him with different clothing and objects that you find on levels. Costumes are generally the most appealing of all since all levels are different and the only thing that makes you original is your costume. But that's one of the bad things, most of the time the player is compelled to go to the Playstation Store and buy new costumes that look cool usually costing two dollars per costume. Buying five costumes is ten dollars, plus tax. Buy thirty costumes, and you can buy another game. The campaign offers completely random but origianl stages, it's extremely simple at first, no hazards, easy to find easter eggs, flat terrain, but as you progress, it gets harder and harder. There's no difficulty level so sometimes, when you're stuck on a level, you'll start to rage if you die at the same part each time. Luckily, the multiplayer solves that problem. If you were to play online multiplayer, allowing up to three other players to join your lobby, you'll find yourself getting easter eggs that you're not allowed to get unless you play with a certain number of people. And maybe one of the other three are able to pass that level that makes you rage which aids you with completing the level. Here comes the best part, being able to make stages and playing stages that are made by other players. There are many player-made stages that are based off of existing video games or are just plain original. That is the best part. There's so many levels, it's unlimitless fun. If fun didn't matter, there wouldn't be Little Big Planet, Little Big Planet, only on the Playstation 3. An immaculate game.

-IRON MAN-

Truth be told my friend, I have not beaten the game yet. Although from what I know, (About 5 or 6 levels) It is a decent Comic>Movie>Game transition, it doesn't take too long to click to the controls, and the voice acting is decent enough. The story differs from the movie, though it still works because it doesn't need to be attached to the movie like many other games that take simple scenes too seriously. There is a customizable aspect where you can change your armor and weapons and such, but it only really matters about the player's input, and there is a replay value of the game because there are extra goals to each level to get more money for upgrades. The game isn't too hard and it has a decent health system, three lives I think, and your health and weapons and thrusters all branch off of your 'heart'. That core power thing, it recharges your system by how active you are, for example, if your going 100mph and charging your laser, then your health will remain stalled. It is a good innovative system that flows with the game play. The only problem I have with it is that it doesn't catch my interest, I can compliment it all I want, and not really find an issue, but it is a game that I just don't feel like playing.

Overall I would rate it: 7.5

If you feel like getting it, go for it, if you don't, then don't.
