Mini Reviews

Project Gotham Racing 3 (XB360) – I get the feeling that this review won’t be very popular.

Generations of Choas ( psp) – This game stinks. Turn based strategy game. You start by picking your character, then immediately start the game. For most games that would not be a bad thing, but this does require at least a minimal tutorial. All actions/ commands are given through a menu interface, which took me far too long to figure out. Th graphics are extremely dated, they appear to be the best the SNES had to offer. This game lacks in every aspect and ranks as the worst PSP game I have every played.
Chibi-Robo (GC) –

War Rock ( PC ) – A free alternative to Battlefield – The open beta went live on July 14th. There are 3 game types depending on the size of the map. Mutiple character types Medic/Scout/Combatant/Engineer/Heavy Weapons. This game even includes vehicles, tanks/APC/Gun boats/Helicopters/gun ships. The detail and physics are really well done. I have paid for games worse then this one.
