Forza Motorsport 2 Review (xbox 360)


Video: Forza 2 Japanese paint jobs

Collect, race and customise more than 300 cars from over 50 of the world’s leading manufacturers, tear up 60 tracks carved out of 18 environments, including 13 real-world licensed circuits. Too good to be true? not according to a score of 90% from 6 reviews on Metacritic.com. Out in Us, releases Europe June 8th.

Reviews Summary
Dangerously addictive and loads of fun
The best sim racer out there right now, no question,
Pretty much Forza 1 with updated graphics
Delivers on nearly every aspect you'd want in a Forza sequel
It drives incredibly, it's wonderfully presented, and it's rich with modes and features.
Functional-at-best visuals aside, Forza 2 excels in a way no other racing game has managed this generation
Brilliant physics, great customization options, and solid online play.
Much like its predecessor, Forza 2 lacks soul

POC At Worlds End Review (Ps3, Xbox 360)


Trying to find a exclusive Xbox360 or Ps3 review is well nigh impossible these days. The majority of Game websites appear to write one review to cover both Xbox 360 and Ps3 formats, and "POC At Worlds End Review" is another victim of this trend. Scoring 59% for both Xbox360 and Ps3 versions on Metacritic.com

Reviews summary
M
uch like the movies, At World’s End is at best a popcorn game
Characters and scenery look absolutely gorgeous
No challenge other than overcompensating for the occasionally stupid AI
It isn't a bad game, but its dull, repetitive combat and uninspired mission structure prevent it from being much fun
Simple? Yes. Fun? Well, only if repetition is your thing.
Save your hard-earned cash for a barrel of rum and consider a rental.

Armored Core 4 Review (Ps3)


Vid upped by EJraven
Streamlined mech action affording a more user friendly experience for the mech battling novice. New storyline, new environments, and online capability scores 64% from 27 reviews on Metacritic.com

Reviews Summary
More accessible than its predecessors
Complicated controls and imposing arsenal of body parts
Armored Core 4 isn't a must-buy for everyone
Short missions, bare-bones multiplayer, and the same ol' gameplay AC has been recycling for years.
What you purchase and equip is every bit as important as how well you play
A great opportunity, missed but must own for fans of the series
Mechs are highly customizable, environments are sparse and gameplay ultimately soulless.
AC4 offers up the hottest next gen, mech-on-mech action yet
