First of all, I recently watched LEGO: Marvel Super Heroes: Maximum Overload which I loved. I thought the unique use of LEGO graphics was genius and fun to watch at the same time. So, when I came across the LEGO Marvel Super Heroes video game I was doubly pleased. The graphics are amazing! The style, look and feel of the game is comparable if not better than the movie. You even feel like you're part of an extended sort of choose your own adventure version of the movie when playing. I have good memories of LEGO from my childhood and Marvel Super Heroes was another favorite, so this game has combined some of my favorite things together in one, making it even more enjoyable to play.

The game takes place in a highly populated New York City and offers you the choice of a wide range of Marvel characters, both heroes and villains. Following the Marvel comics story line, the basic idea of the game is to stop Loki and the other villains from destroying the world with a super-weapon they are trying to create. You get the choice of which characters you control, and by using their different abilities like Spiderman's web action. You also get to build new constructions in the city, smash them up, solve puzzles and travel through various environments. Some of the places you will travel through are the Green Goblin's Oscorp Tower, Grand Central Station and Doctor Doom's Castle. You can also sky dive and explore the city in between missions and do so many other things. In fact, you really must explore the city in order to uncover all the secrets present within the game.

Each mission or level is quite involved and the secrets are very well hidden. Through exploring you will be able to unlock over 100 characters you can play and discover other things like hidden bricks. Every character has a unique voice and animation, making the game even more memorable. Most of the characters have multiple abilities. It's fun to figure out what character abilities are need to move past the various challenges. Personally, my favorite Marvel characters are Captain America, Spiderman and the Incredible Hulk.

A really nice feature of the game is the ability to control multiple characters by pressing a button. In order to move forward in the game, you have to use a mixture of the super-hero powers and battle the bad guys. There's plenty of humor packed in the game as well that makes it even more entertaining. During the game there are plenty of tutorials and prompts to help you play.

Overall I really think the LEGO Marvel Super Heroes game is fun for all ages. Visually, it's bright, interesting and full of a narrative that offers plenty of fun jokes. Effects like cascading water, debris flying around and super hero powers are very entertaining to the viewer. It's also reasonably priced at about $25. It's also available on all major consoles, so anyone who loves video games can easily purchase it. Christmas is coming up so it's a perfect gift for all the game lovers in your life.

The fourth installment of Saints Row series takes place five years after Saints Row: The Third. At first it seems to be a typical open-world, third-person shooter with a lot of quality customization options which is right in line with the other games of the series as well as similar games of the genre, but not everything is as it seems. This time player gets to control the leader of the Third Street Saints gang once more, only the Saints are not faced with just another gang war this time. The stakes are much higher.

The entire series has over the years become more and more over the top and all the more enjoyable for it, after all it is only make believe. Saints Row IV is the natural progression of a through the roof, ridiculous and hilarious story. A lot of characters come from the earlier games both friends and opponents, and it does not take long for the game to get into fantasy overdrive with the unlikely event of the player, controlling the gang's Boss, managing to stop a nuclear missile by riding on its back and disarming it in flight, and then subsequently it becomes totally bonkers when the player becomes President of the United States and, as Commander-in-chief, it becomes necessary for him to save the entire world from a hostile alien invasion headed by the alien warlord Zinyak, who capture the gang boss and his cabinet in the White House. Things get even more bizarre when the President Boss and his minions find that they have been placed in computer simulation by the alien invaders.

In order to combat the aliens and escape form the simulation the player needs more than just street smarts and big guns, superhuman powers are a must. In addition to new alien weapons with unlimited ammo and new vehicles to buy and steal, the player can also purchase upgradable superpowers like super jumps, force fields and telekinesis. The aliens of course are nothing like a rival gang nor your run of mill drugs or arms dealers, nor even any police or military force. The bulk of the game takes place in the familiar city of Steelport from Saints Row: The Third, but it the city is not as it was once was. It is also necessary to fight against simulations, generated by aliens, of past enemy gangs and rid themselves from their own personal simulations generated by their own fears.

There are a large number of side-quests and loyalty missions along with the main campaign as well as optional romance plots to embrace with other characters. Despite the return to Steelport the altered mission maps are full of surprises. The game, which is available now on the Xbox 360, PlayStation 3 and PC, features a two player co-op mode as well as online multiplayer and a lot of downloadable content. The DLC packs consist of some extra missions as well as additional character customization options and weapons to make gameplay even more fun and chaotic. Watch out for an alternative ending as a penalty for not completing certain actions or tasks.

This is a wonderfully over the top yarn which does not take itself seriously, and, lets face it, when you have seen a few games in this genre there is really a limit to what you can do to go forward with the usual everyday story of gangster folk and so why not go off at a tangent. Let's just hope the game's developers are not blessed with prophetic insight.

In true Bond movie style, this game has a plot centered on the threat of a biochemical terror attack; and as expected weapons and girls are also present in abundance. The plot of the game is very good, realistic and exciting. The transitions from one scene to another are also very smooth. Car chases, fight scenes and gun firing are all here in this game. It is truly like watching the real movie with the big difference that you are playing the role of James Bond.

In this game, you can easily determine the status of your enemies, you will know where they are and if they are getting near you. You can use weapons like pistols, machine guns, shotguns and rifles (the shotgun is favorite). This game can be played either single or multiplayer. There are several level modes that you can choose from to make the game even more exciting. Also, you can unlock all kinds of different tidbits which add to the replay value.

Regarding the game features, the graphics are good and all of the characters, scenes, figures and everything you see on your screen are properly developed. You will surely be amazed at how they made everything seem realistic. The audio is just about adequate; not good and not bad. All in all, the James Bond 007: Blood Stone game is something that fans can really look forward to playing. It is like creating the whole story of a James Bond movie. It is fun, exciting and will make you want to play over and over again. The challenges will get you going until you finally finish the story.

If you are a die-hard fan of James Bond, then this game is intended for you to try and feel the role of this famous character. This is probably one of my favorite games available on the PC and I would encourage everyone to buy it. Please do note that you will need a good graphics card to play the game though.

Dark Souls is an open world action role-playing video game originally developed and published for PlayStation 3. It is a a predecessor to Demon Souls, arguably one of the most rewarding and difficult games on the PS3. Dark Souls is centered in a large and contiguous open world environment, which gives the player the ability to travel to and from areas, as well as explore various available paths. The gameplay mainly consist of dungeon crawling, and acting style weapon combat, which is very smooth and very difficult. The game does not put such a huge emphasis on the story, more on the gameplay.

Dark Souls is the interesting story of your hero attempting to save an this weird world that from what can be seen, fell a very long time ago. Huge terrifying creatures make there homes all over this dark world. A handful of straggled humans are all that is left, and your free to talk to them or to kill them, but beware they will lie to you. And the best thing of all is that the game literally kills you off between character creation and the first cut-scene.Dark Souls seems to go beyond all expectations fans had for this game.

Dark Souls offers you a small arsenal of attacks, parries, evasive maneuvers, and parries. The combat in Dark souls is a deadly dance, and when each of your attacks lands on your target, you will feel a small victory. Just be aware that poorly implemented mouse and keyboard support makes playing the game very tough, so a controller is highly recommended if playing on the PC version. Early on you learn never to let your guard down, because even the weakest of enemies can strike blows that will cripple you. You have a variety of weapons available to you by exploring the world and defeating its epic bosses. You eventually get access to a blacksmith. This blacksmith can enhance your weapons greatly, eventually adding cool effects like ice, lightning and fire to it. Upgrading your weapons is a very vital part to progressing and staying alive during your stay in Dark Souls.

Dark Souls also comes with an interesting, helpful, and sometimes unhelpful online feature. When playing online, players on the same levels as you can scrawl messages into the ground when they die, warning other players of incoming dangers. This is actually quite helpful when stuck on certain parts of dungeons. The PvP multiplayer is back from the original game Demon Souls; blue and black phantoms - other players invading your world. They can either choose to help you on your quest, or kill you and loot your souls. The game's bloodstains are another interesting addition to the online play. Touch one, and you'll see the final seconds of another player.

Altogether Dark Souls is a very well put together game, it has a rewarding combat system, and should be picked up by anyone who wants a challenge from their video games!
