This game allows you to choose from 150 premade heads, and offers an array of hairstyles, tattoos, skin tones and eye colors. The player will note that when creating their career mode fighter, you can choose any of the nine available specializations each featuring different strengths and weaknesses. For instance if you specialize in Judo you will realize that your ground skills are more useful than your striking skills, however other skills can be attained through the training program with trainer, retired MMA champion Bas Rutten.

Strategic thinking is needed when faced with a challenging opponent and for a more satisfying game its best to get an opponent online. Multiplayer matches are fun and exciting since you can gauge on how skillful you are based on the type of career mode fighter that you have chosen.

A player has the opportunity to choose two fictional leagues from the six existing leagues once they have undergone training successfully. Rules vary and are unique to an individual league. Some of the best career mode features includes the training sessions, once a player completes a challenge by pushing a button the player can simulate it to obtain its benefits.

Note that higher scores in your challenge results to greater effectiveness. One other fantastic feature is that a player is able to move to different gyms and the ability to learn new moves as you keep competing in new challenges. There are a total of 25 moves however you are limited to 16 moves only.

The mixed martial arts game has highly responsive controls, for instance the left analog stick is used for movement whereas the right stick is used for throwing punches. The face buttons are used for sprawls, submissions, clinches and take downs, while the shoulder buttons are used for throwing kicks, blocking and faking.
It is always wise to pick opponents online since they less predictable, however regardless of the opponent choose a career mode fighter whose strengths you know how to play because every fight earns you points and new rankings.

Individuals who are not participating in a fight challenge have the opportunity to watch fights through the EA Sports MMA website, interestingly enough these live broadcasts have live commentators usually MMA experts. The EA Sports MMA offers lengthy exciting challenges and great fun. One thing is for sure this game does not disappoint.

In this game the player will be fighting against biochemical terrorists scattered around the vast areas of Europe and Asia. The player will surely like the thrilling experience while evading a blasting refinery in Siberia, or would draw his feet running to capture a villain in Thailand. One of the more exciting parts of this long campaign is its endless encounters with ruthless assassins.

Throughout the game the player will also be using explosives to eliminate enemies which is mainly taken from the FPS textbook, the catch to this game is the Focus Aim feature that drives away from its common cover-based combat. A focus kill will be rewarded to every close-combat takedown which can be stored three at a single time. With just little quick button taps the player can easily dispatch enemies, provided that the Focus Aim is activated. Focus Aim is not needed with other levels of the James Bond 007: Blood Stone and this makes the game more exciting. With just the use of zoom-in the player can easily make headshots on enemies at long distances without using the Focus Aim. On difficult levels of the game, the use of Focus Aim is optional, focus aim makes the player quick and stylish in making headshots or kills but it is less necessary. The game will be more action-filled if players will not be using focus aim.

James Bond known for his unique gadgets had his smartphone available in the game. The player will be able to use the Smartphone to display his progressing objectives of the mission in the HUD. Also, this device can be used to detect enshroud and camouflaged enemies making the mission child’s play. In addition, the multipurpose gadget can also be helpful in acquiring evidences and hack keypads. Blood Stone indeed will be one of the most-wanted shooting games players will crave for.

To make players even more excited to try this game out, a part of the game that uses Bond’s sports car was added. This addition to the game makes players’ enthusiasm rise as they can experience Casino Royale scenes in this mode. Be careful enough in driving as this may lead to head-on collisions and wrong turns that may lead to players’ unwanted death.

The online multiplayer game mode allows players to choose whether to play certain game types such as Team Deathmatch, Last Man Standing and Objective. However, cars and boats are not available on these modes. Players will have the chance to unlock levels and character skins, and have the opportunity to level up games. The James Bond 007: Blood Stone is an innovation of previous 007-like games that will heighten up every shooter’s desire to shoot and make enemies’ heads roll.

Gears of War Xbox 360 Review.

If you haven't played Gears of War yet I sentence you to 25 years in prison for misguidance. Seriously, you must have heard of this game. It has gotten so many highly praised ratings reviews from tons and tons of gaming sites around the net. This game is certainly on my top ten list not for just shooters, period.

You (Marcus Fenix) is a super buff dude, just like the other soldiers. Just like your other fighting partners they are super ripped with almost comical huge armor. You will see what I mean when you fire this bad boy up, but, from the moment you pop the game in you will notice that you are in an action packed game. Mr. Fenix was a solider for COG (Coalition of Organized Governments). However, he was jailed as a traitor he breaks out of jail in the first cut scene to fight alongside the Locust.

Ok so after you break out of jail you and Dom (the dude) that help you break out will go through a quick tutorial to get you used to the controls. Then you will make your way to the chopper where you will be connect with Delta Squad in order to find Alpha Squad which has a device that is supposed to be a turning point in the war. They have access to some sort of secret weapon that is really going to make a huge impact. Hints the name Gears of War!

Don't worry about the storyline that much. They don't really explain why Marcus is in jail or give you loads and loads of detail. In fact, I didn't really learn a lot of it until the second time around. It is kind of cool though how the game is structured because they have some sort of flashback sequence which almost makes you feel as if you don't really know anything about the story in the first place.

The game mechanics are awesome. It is basically a cover and then shoot game, you leave your head out there or just stand in a open space you can bet your ass you are going to get filled full of lead. Even if you do have 44 inch biceps! It is insanely intense and you really have to use your noodle to beat your enemies. This game has an auto generate health element that makes it like Halo, but much faster.

Honestly, I love this game. It is so bad ass and there are so many achievements that you can get. The list could go on and on with things you can do to get your achievements too. For instance, you can unlock an achievement by reloading your weapon a couple times in a row. All in all this game is badass online, and offline. I have already spent hours past my bed time with this game.

Our favorite curb stomping web slinger is back, swinging through the air and pummeling goons and super powered villains in Spider-Man Shattered Dimensions. This time, Spidey must travel across four-dimensions to hunt down a shattered magical artifact under the guidance of Madame Web. Her ethereal voice guides our hero and gives him plenty of opportunities to do some wisecracks and witty banters that have captured the fans for years, taking nods from pop culture and canon. Thought the dialogue sometimes becomes too repetitive, it still captures Spider-man’s signature appeal.

The game features four different worlds with four different versions of Spidey Amazing, Ultimate, 2099 and Noir. As you play the campaign, the levels unlock in groups of four (one per dimension), offering you your choice of how to play through them. Each world differs in mechanics and in gameplay. Amazing’s world is a centered on hard hitting combat using various hard hitting web powers and classic old school fist fighting while wearing the red and blue suit that made him an Icon. Ultimate centers on sarcastic banters while using lashing tentacle attacks to spice up the combat. 2099 brings you to a futuristic metropolis full of tall buildings for lots of free-falling sequences and Noir, takes its cue from last year’s smash hit. Batman Arkham Asylum taking a break from all the web slinging action, fist pounding action in exchange for stealth, silently picking baddies off in a dark world of gangsters and mafia filled world.

The gameplay is solid. Ok it is badass! Basically, you’re given full control of what Spider-man is capable of stringing together brutal combos which he can learn by buying new move sets by collecting spider-essence from beaten up foes or completing some task and challenges. Foes vary through the different dimensions and there are even instances when you punch the enemies in a first person perspective to keep thing fresh.

But what would Spidey be without his infamous wall-crawling, web slinging abilities? You run and jump with an enjoyable sense of agility and make frequent use of your abilities. Most areas are littered with well-marked locations that you can quickly zip to, and most spaces allow you to webswing whenever you want, regardless of whether or not you are surrounded by tall buildings. This gives you a sense of “freedom” especially when facing foes, you can either swing down and pummel them with kicks and punches or stay out of reach and web sling whatever item you can. Or you can webzip from body to body, kicking off of your enemies' chests and flinging them around with your webs, barely stopping to touch the ground. Spider-Man is a superhero that’s always on the move and this game captures that perfectly.

But it is however not without problems. Sometimes, movement can be tricky especially on some levels that prevent you from using certain abilities due to the level designs which will not give any warnings whatsoever. Thankfully you are given the option to websling back into safety without penalties, in case you missed a websling. Also, camera issues are expected especially when wall crawling or webslinging through awkward corners.

Still, the game is pretty awesome for hardcore fans that’ll definitely enjoy the familiar worlds this game covers, to new or casual fans who just want a good action game while being immersed in the rich graphics and artwork that brings and distinguishes each of the universes.

Resident Evil 5 Gold is an edition with little more extras in comparison to the previous RE 5 editon. There is an additional versus mode. The Mercenaries Reunion because you will get to play with Excella and Josh, who were there in the other editions. In edition Five Gold you will meet two more characters; Barry Burton and Rebecca Chambers.

You will be able to differentiate the characters by the weapons and the unique moves they make during the fight. If you have the previous Resident Evil 5, you will see the Mercenaries mode here is featured as it was featured in that edition. You will find this game quite extra ordinary in that you will have to download some contents. By repackaging the original game with a code written at the back of the manual. One big disadvantage with this game is that you must have internet connection with you because you will have to go to Live Market place to download the extra contents.

The publisher of this game is wise, just like many other publishers who are ensuring that you download the code online to avoid second hand sales of the game. However this is unfair to the games and buyers of the game but it is meant to prevent the publishers from exploitation. The extras on this game have made it quite long and it will last several hours. The Versus and Mercenaries modes can be played over and over again. If you area first timer you will find this game worth playing. The package is aimed at bringing new residents to the home and there is resistance, it is not easy trying to get some residents to the home. That is what the game is all about. It would be wise if the publishers put the game in two different discs, downloading the contents is boring and many of the Resident Evil 5 Gold players will not like it.

Owning a Resident Evil 5 Gold you are going to enjoy the thrilling game for the first timers however for those fans that have played the previous editions it is boring. There is little new things added and in short it will appeal to those people who missed the Resident Evil 5.The game has reasonable price. It will cost between 10 pounds-15 pounds. If you choose to buy each of the extra chapters separately, it will be more expensive. You will better off if you bought the full game with all the contents.

The graphics are rated as perfect with little or no hitches or let downs. However the sound is not as great as you would expect. The game is long enough and you can say it pays the value for your money, and it is worth spending the amount it is worth. The whole game can be rated as a great one, irrespective of Resident Evil 5 Gold being only an addition of two chapters to Resident Evil 5.

This game is easily playable with stunning art style and that makes the game very lively. There are a few twists though they do not stop you from enjoying the spirited adventure. The game is based on the story where young Ninja Hiro and his buddy Futo get on a mission to look for their missing ninja comrades and they will stop the Samurai, the warlord from taking over the world. As the two ninjas are enroute to the warlords’ home, they will find their lost friends and they will learn new spells and they will fight the Samurai. This on paper may sound dull but when you play it the game is full of humor.

This is a game that most will like, this is quite a lengthy game that will get you involved with it’s great graphics and visual throughout the game. The level designs are quite appealing and will encourage you to explore more into the game. The game also has a variety of combat options. I cannot forget to mention the excellent soundtracks in the game. However the game has some negative aspects. As you progress toward the end of the game, you will get very tired, and not forgetting the most disappointing thing on the game; the camera, which is at times very uncooperative.

Mini Ninjas is a game that is spread over a number of levels. The game is quite simple from one level to the next. The levels are broad and they encourage a lot of exploration and they create a blossoming open world. Each of the levels has a number of hidden paths that will lead young to shrines, collectibles or to the enemies’ camps. Some of the collectibles will help as you will mix them to make potions. There are some shortcuts that will help you around altercation.

The paths are quite deceitful as much as they look stunning. You can take down the strong enemies in a number of ways. Each of these characters have strong and weak attacks, the weapons they posses also gives them special powers and so do their personalities. The hidden spells in the levels are used to unlock new spells like the ability to control the animals you find roaming around or those you will find caged. You can free some of those animals using the spells and use the freed animals for fighting your enemies for revenge. There are other weapons like Shurikens and cherry bombs, though using these is not as fun as using the meteors on the enemies.

In Mini Ninjas you can also hide in the tall grass or on the rooftops. The controls on this game are smooth and silky. Each of the ninjas does different specific action. Like you will find that Futo uses his giant hammer as a paddle, Suzume will be spinning her flute in the water. You can spend a cool ten hours on the game if you explore all the levels as well as looking for collectibles.

The setting is in Venezuela which is in the middle of a rebellion with oil as the fundamental focus of the struggle. While the army is doing their best to take hold of the country, there are also numerous groups who are more than willing to take control of the nation. Every faction has their own sets of missions and in a way will get you closer to Ramon Solano of whom you will take revenge for double-crossing you. However, one faction in support of the other will do no good and instead will bring harm.

In the game, combat does not have any complications. All you do is shoot and kill people and there are multitudes of vehicles such as motorcycles, boats and choppers to hijack. Also, the more powerful vehicles like tanks and choppers have minigames included. You need to hit the appropriate buttons as they emerge on the screen to make it look more cinematic. The best portion of the game is the calling up of air support. While you can call up for drops of vehicles and weapons which happens to be very easy, the most efficient gadget is phoning up an air strike.

There are many strikes in variations to make use, but all in all, they will deliver potential explosions and quite extraordinary damages. Every structure standing and vehicle moving can be destroyed. On the other hand, the most peculiar option is turning your mercenary into a superman. The individual melee kills are simple things to be abused. Though there may be some issues in the game, it is still worthy to be played due to the addition of two-player cooperation online. The setting of the game is in the world of the host player and all the missions will give him advantage. Other player will get cash and amazing prizes to return to their own game.

Mercenaries 2 is perfectly in balance when played between two players most especially since your teammate can be alive again once you are killed. All they have to do get near you press the right button and then, you will be alive. Co-op is the fundamental key to goodness. There are frequent slowdowns during large explosions. In terms of the presentation, there is surely a great amount of hilarity which will make a superficial story amusing. The menu system of the game is simple to maneuver even if the world map can be more operational. Despite the numerous side disruptions, having the co-op will aid in the longevity of the game.
