ArmA II

Sequel to armed assault and they have some nice ideas with more open play missions and factions that you can support in the missions but overall it has the same problems as the first game.

Assassins Creed 2

This game is set in the 15th century in Italy. You play as Ezio who becomes an Assassin after his father are murdered. You get a mansion, buy things for it as you get richer and kill of all those that had any part of your fathers death. Great fun and nice game world.

Assassins Creed 2: Discovery

Run around and kill people by jumping from buildings and stab them in the neck. Gameplay is a 2D side scroller even if it is shown with 3D graphic. It works nice on the DS even if most thing are more or less automatic and it does not take to much player skill to do most thing in the game.

Bionic Commando

Swing around in Ascension City and look for what the evil BioReign is up to. Shot and swing things at them. Read more on my Bionic Commado page

Borderlands

First-person shooter role playing game that supports co-op play. You pick one of four character classes to play and then you explore the world, collect weapons and kill people that try to kill you. Real nice art style in this game.

Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2

Second part of the Modern Warfare series and the story is so bad and over the top that the only sane thing is to ignore it and never talk about it again. The gameplay is otherwise still the same with many cool scenes and events that you get to enjoy and the most epic thing of all is the Special Ops missions that can be played in co-op with another player.

F.E.A.R. 2: Project Origin

More hallways and store rooms with huge fire fights and still not much in the way of fear. The level designers for the game need basic training in learning to place triggers, I spent most of the games trying to see the things I was supposed to see each time there was a spooky sound but I more or less missed them all. It's like a game that can't choose if it would like to be action or horror and so it does not it any high on any of them.

Grand Theft Auto: Chinatown Wars

Great game that really work well on the DS.

Hearts of Iron III

Grand strategy wargame where you can control any nation that existed during 1936-1948. Control the production, research, armed forces and many other things as you try to make sure your nation gets the most of the war. Always fun to rule the world and to play what if :).

Killzone 2




Left 4 Dead 2

Four new survivors need to survive the zombie onslaught and this time it is possible to use melee weapons to kill of the undead. Chainsaw is a favorite like always in every zombie zombie apocalypse :).

Operation Flashpoint: Dragon Rising

Operation Flashpoint under the new flag of codemasters and it's nice and works in co-op but it seems like the only concept for mission design is killing teams of anti tank soldiers. Not real chance to drive or fly anything in this game so it does not really feel like a true operation flashpoint game.

Red Faction: Guerrilla

Back to mars to fight the evil EDF in this open-world game. This time it's possible to destroy buildings to get scraps that can be used to buy better weapons. The world is split into six areas that the EDF control and you take each one back by destroying major EDF buildings in it and doing missions.

Resident Evil 5

Travel to Africa, meet the locals, see them turn into monsters and try to eat your brain. Game is played with you taking the role as Chris Redfield from the past games and with a new partner Sheva. Works well I guess besides that she always stand in front of you when you plan the shoot and she often refuse to shoot at all when someone is about to eat a bit of Chris head. Many cutscenes, epic bad writing and tiresome boss fights where you shoot the glowing spots.

Risen

Risen is boring. It has some positive elements like some nice vistas and some bad like the combat system but hours in the game i was tired of playing it. It never gets anywhere. Even the dialogue drags on without any of the characters saying anything i care about.

Terminator Salvation

Shooter based on the movie.

The Chronicles of Riddick: Assault on Dark Athena

Remake and addon to Escape from butcher bay.

Trine

Side-scrolling action and puzzle game where three characters get trapped in a magical artefact called the trine so only one of them can exist at the same time (unless you play multi player). You switch between the characters as you wish when playing and use each characters ability?s to solve puzzles. The thief has a bow and grappling hook, the knight has a sword and a shield and the wizard can use magic to move and create objects. The levels are really good looking and the puzzles are fun. I also like the epic voice overs at the start of each level :).

Wolfenstein RPG

Turn based first person shooter. Visit castle Wolfenstein and kill everyone that look at you the wrong way.
