Castlevania Lords of Shadow has been released for the PS3 and it is most mind boggling. Gabriel Belmont returns from the grave to avenge the death of his love, this time in a better fashion. He is equipped with greater combat abilities and special skills to take down any evil lurking in the shadows. He moves around in a beautiful environment composed of haunting forests, tranquil waterfalls, and decaying, ancient cities. However, this game sucks. The great special skills can be used only in certain situations such as solving some environmental puzzles. The graphics and places might be astounding, but you can’t get there. The game is very strict with regards to where you go and how you can get there. The sense of freedom is nothing but an illusion.

Your job as Gabriel is to look for an item that could potentially bring the dead back to life – I hope not as a zombie. You encounter Pan, who has striking similarities to the mythical character of the same name; and he related to Gabriel. Now he must go the areas where the Necromantic Wars happened – it just so happened that this place is infested with vamps and wolves – and retrieve the desired item named the God mask.

The great and rich land where Gabriel sets foot for has purposes equivalent to a doormat, and as a background filler. You will not really feel any connection to the game though everything is great, down to dialogue. Descriptions of the bosses are provided throughout the game, but not enough for our Gabriel. There are also times you will neglect his presence in the game.

Our hero can use 2 different types of attacks, short and strong, or long and weak. You can use this as combos when attacking your enemy’s top score, high points in as little effort as possible. Gabriel picks up along the way mini weapons such as daggers and fairies (?!) capable of handling your enemies for you.

This game is likable enough, but it won’t give you anything new.

If memory serves me correct Bioshock was released in 2007 on the 360, and it shouldn't be any big surprise to know that this game was released a couple years after the console version. For me I played the shit out of this game on 360 and was I was ecstatic when this game was finally released.

In the start of the game the game will start off as you taking a flight on a plane, however, for some totally unknown reason the plane crashes into the water. So you will be left wondering where the hell do I go. Unless you are like me and have played the game on 360. Anyways, you will swim your way to an island with a lighthouse. From here you will leave your surveying passengers only to fend for themselves. Kind of trader, huh!

Ok so you will arrive at an underwater city and this is where it gets really good. Your will be approached by your good friend Atlas, and even meet a local splicer. You character doesn't respond to others as they give you all kinds of tidbits. Maybe he just doesn't feel the need to say anything, I don't know. Kind of a social retard!. Then your friend will give you a series of orders over the radio.

This could be anything like killing a type of splicer or just interacting with someone he wants you to you to talk to. You will also be upgrading yourself in various ways, too. In this underwater city you will be able to find audio diaries left by previous people that lived in the city before your time. They will also hint at the main villain which you will come across as the game progresses further and further.

So take my word on it and take the time to listen to these audio diaries along the way, unless you could care less about the storyline. They will really help in tying the story together. Whatever choices you will make will determine how a certain episode will end. There are two different ways either good or evil; no neutral which I would kind of liked to have seen.

Later in the game you will find a camera which is awesome. You can use it for a number of awesome advantages (like more health, EVE, which is mana, or plasmids, which are spells. Yeah, you could go through the game and only take pictures of the ONLY required ones, but that would be no fun. This will give you ways to research your enemies, but choose wisely as you can only take three shots of each enemy.

Furthermore, you can harvest EVE (which is mana) from others and even take on bosses. They will either come in ranged or melee, in which you can use mines and wires to aid in defeating them.

The games start off at a slow pace. It looks more of a gimmick at the beginning but later on the game picks momentum to a good one. The game is crowded with characters. The story in Airborne is based on WWII; the Nazis should be killed to save the world. As a player you are in the airborne division and you will be jumping from the planes to and swinging the war in favor of the Allies. Before each mission you are given objectives that you should accomplish. You will arrive in a plane and you should parachute rather than spawn.

Before you land you will want to maneuver towards the green smoke which is a safe landing zone. By parachuting you are free to land wherever you want but the walls will prevent you from getting through and you will end up dead shortly. The game is quite boring at the begging until you get to the second last levels. The two last levels in combination with the great multiplayer make the game worth your time. However you will be bored because the first half of the game is also boring. Aiming at the weapons in the entire game is not easy, and there are other small flaws that you will encounter throughout the game.

The game is made up of six levels and you are supposed to take on waves of Axis soldiers on the game. The six might look few but each of the levels lasts for at least one hour so the whole game will take you about eight hours to complete the game. Your objectives are listed on the radar and it is upon you to decide the order in which you are going to accomplish them. However regardless of the order I which you start the game you will have limitation on where to start the objectives and you must play all of them.

The first three levels take place in unexciting settings and the stages are boring. The game picks up at the fourth level with more freedom on how to tackle the levels. When you climb towers you will take out on spinners which you will view their direction by the reflection of the scope, you are supposed to clear the troops on the ground and make your way into the a building which is all about clearing troops on the ground here and proceeding onto the next levels.

The game artificial intelligence is aggressive as well as the games artificial intelligence is not very good. The enemies will shoot at you without looking at your direction and when you get closer they will get reinforcements and shoot you till you get weak but surprisingly in your weak state you can send them off with combat attacks. The controls in this game are quite standard for the first-person shooter. When trying to dash from one cover to the other the sprint buttons come in handy. However the game has its share of flaws, the automatic weapons have too much recoil and that makes them difficult to aim and this is a problem that is not shared by the CPU. This PS3 version has is more improved than the Xbox360 because it takes fewer bullets to put down the enemy.

This game too has more component than the previous Medal of Honor Airborne. Eight people can play online at the same time, and the game still is fast and not clumsy. The badly laid visuals do not hamper the games experience at all. Medal of Honor Airborne is a game that you will like once you get past the first 3 levels. Over all it is a good game.

I will spare you the story line, I would think that was kinda obvious, so we shall evaluate the game overall. The enhanced World Tour mode of the game is a remarkable distraction. This has also more depth compared to the mode in the previous game and further adds a stamina meter that is sim-like, with other mini-games, different practice challenges and the so-called formal tennis academy which will modify your skills and characteristics. To put all these together, it will result to a fine game of net play and numerous opportunities to shape the type of tennis player you desire in the game.

Generating your personal character for the game is considered the most amusing proposition the game offers. Even if the modifications in the facial aspect and the accessory alternatives are somewhat restricted, improving skills through the Tennis Academy and the mini-games is addictive. A smart and strange way to pass the time is to look for an excuse to steer clear of tennis balls which are similar to boulders in size at the same time capture fruit to enhance your footwork or perhaps to blow up robots that are orb-shooting to improve your tennis strokes.

In terms of the visual quality, the game is not bad at all. In contrast to the animations in the previous game, Virtual Tennis 3 has more fluidity. What is perplexing to note is the appearance of the game when the camera is directed top-down on the action. There was even a time when frequent animations will grow old even after a few matches and the wrinkled faces of the players will make them look like puppets rather than appearing as people. In addition, the substandard scenes in conversation are not that striking also.

Several presentations may not be that bad, but a couple of the presentation issues are very recognizable though. For example, if the player begins its tennis career at rank three hundred, however, he is only capable of playing against thirteen men and seven women. It is also frustrating to note that Virtual Tennis 3 is entirely an easy target until such time you will be in rank 100. The player cannot also participate in mini-games for single players until he is in the World Tour. Though the mini-games are located in the main menu, these are only for the multiplayer campaign which is quite peculiar.

Even if Virtual Tennis 3 has only few modifications and is deficient of network play, the user-friendly mechanics of the game as well as the swift arcade style is never to be neglected. This is a spontaneous for the newbies but for those who are already familiar with the previous game, then Virtual Tennis 3 is nothing but ordinary in comparison.

Rockstar games is at it again and has developed an open world third person shooting game similar to the Grand Theft Auto Franchise. L.A. Noire for the PS3 comes to you taking place in the year 1947 in Los Angeles California. You are in the middle of many incidents going on all throughout the city as a police detective for the Los Angeles Police Department. Since this game takes place in the late 1940s you are going to have to expect to be involved in a lot of gangster cases.

The team that actually developed L.A. Noire is Team Bondi and the game was published by Rockstar Games. For those gamers that appreciate unique gameplay and a mind blogging play the whole way through will find much interest here. Do not expect to run and gun your way through this game. L.A. Noire for the PS3 aims at taking gamers in a different direction. L.A. Noire is focused more on your detective skills and ability to assess situations that unfold in front of you rather than a full on assault.

One feature this game has that a lot of people enjoyed was the interrogations conducted throughout the game. As a detective you have to ask people questions, and based on their response you form an opinion on if you think they are telling the truth or not. This adds an interesting element to the game because you have to decipher how to read someone based on the situation that has unfolded, their tone of voice and their overall facial expressions while you ask them questions. This element L.A. Noire for the PS3 makes it very fun for those gamers who like to try and decipher questions and mysteries. Yet for those who simply like to run around and shoot things this is not your type of game.

Overall L.A. Noire for the PS3 is a moderately fun game. Because of the slow paced feel gamers can find themselves getting a little agitated and ready for action at times. Not that there is not a lack of action in the game, but for those who are looking for a Grand Theft Auto type of feel to the game look elsewhere. This game is fun for the gamers who do not mind spending a little extra time and effort to figure out clues provided throughout the game. The story is one of the most interesting aspects of the game and it feels as if you were in a movie when you are playing.

Anyone who wants to try a completely unique game should give L.A. Noire a try. The PS3 offers superior graphics and sound while you are playing through the game. Remember that there is downloadable content expected to be periodically be released in the coming future for the game so it does have some replay value. L.A. Noire for the PS3 is a fun and interesting experience.
