As a film, The Amazing Spider-Man breathed life back into the hero and the franchise. With a unique twist on the comic book world that brought fans back to the movies, it was only a matter of time until that version of the wall crawler got his own game. And in The Amazing Spider-Man there are no holds barred.

The video game is meant to act as an epilogue to the film. Peter, so new at being Spider-Man, has a lot to learn after his defeat of the Lizard. However, this is Marvel's New York, and because of that there's a new costumed creep around practically every corner. Whether it's the Rhino going on a rampage, or the Scorpion out for Spider-Man's head, there's plenty of super villain action that players are going to have to throw themselves head first at to keep the city safe. No matter how new Peter is at this, he's going to have to keep on his toes and listen when his Spider Senses start tingling.

Mechanically, The Amazing Spider-Man is a beautiful piece of gaming. In an effort to capture all of the acrobatics and insane web-slinging stunts that Spider-Man is capable of the controls have been simplified to make moving around as organic as possible. Additionally, adopting the free running and wild fighting styles of games like Assassin's Creed, Spider-Man's fighting style is now just as wild as it's been in the comic books. With speed and agility on the player's side, it's important to never be where the next attack is coming from. Otherwise it's very possible that it will be lights out for the fledgling superhero.

The movement and combat styles aren't the only things that feel organic when it comes to The Amazing Spider-Man either. For fans of the comic book, that's exactly what the game feels like. Events progress on a huge scale, and there's always something around the next bend to threaten Peter's regular life and that requires him to put on his mask again. However, perhaps because this game is all about Spider-Man, there's no point where the action breaks the suspension of disbelief. Since New York is the center of most meta-human activity, it only makes sense that there would be so much crime for players to fight. Of course when the interconnecting threads are woven together into a tangled web, it's Peter's job to unravel it and become the hero he needs to be.

Overall, The Amazing Spider-Man might be the best attempt at a Spider-Man game yet. Though attempts have gone back all the way to the Sega Genesis, the technology has finally made it possible for players to do what they want and to do it stylishly when it comes to controlling Peter's movements. Additionally, whether players are fans of the movie or of the comic books, it won't matter when they pick up this game. All they have to worry about is whether they're fans of Spider-Man, and everything that comes with it.

Rocksmith for the PC gives personal computer gamers a lot more to look forward to when they decide to pass the time playing video games. You do not have to feel like you are not gaining any skills when you play video games any longer. This game was developed and produced by Ubisoft and comes on Microsoft Windows. This is one of the music video games that takes playing this genre of gaming to the next level.

The concept behind this game is that you can literally plug in your guitar and play this game to learn how to cover actual songs. Sometime after the release of Rocksmith Guitar a Bass extension was added to the game so people could build on their Bass skills as well.

In order to use a guitar players must have the Hercules plug in that connects to the computer. Once you do this you can hook up just about any guitar or bass. There is an extensive song selection from artists such as The Cure, Blur, Eric Clapton, Nirvana and Muse.

As you play Rocksmith there are notes that come at you on the screen and you have to match the notes on the screen. While you are trying to match the notes on the screen you can also look at the fretboard to see how you should be holding the guitar or bass. Song lyrics are also displayed to help those that want to conduct solo acts. Although you are not required to sing along, many people choose to memorize both the song lyrics and notes in order to provide a small performance for people.

Rocksmith has a lot of downloadable content which gives it a lot of replay value. The game received a lot of critical reception for not hitting all the notes with complete accuracy though, and people felt that this is what hurt the game the most. Either way if you are interested in learning how to play music this is a good game to play. Rocksmith helps those who would never pick up a guitar or bass learn songs easily. The game got reviews in the 7.5 to 8 out of 10 range, so it was not seen as a bad game.

If you are a PC gamer looking for a change then this game is a must play. Yet if you are experienced with the guitar or bass then you might not find this game as appealing. Rocksmith PC is more of a casual musician's pickup music game.

This game gives you the whole experience as a hunter. You get the chance to travel across the globe to take part in the journey of a lifetime and hopefully come back with a huge show off able trophy. When you first start this game it shows you a video of a snowy mountain scene where you are trying to hunt a bear. Out of nowhere another hunter comes up and shoots the bear before you and it doesn't end well. You then go to the injured man and the bear shows up behind you and surprises you. Basically that is just the intro but the whole game is based off of the fact that a millionaire invites you to compete in the world wide big game trophy hunt. This game gives you your goals in the beginning of each level. Which mainly consist of you killing an animal for a trophy. You also have the option of other tasks around the way. Your second goal is to get as much money as possible which allows you to upgrade your weapon.

There is a mode available to help you find the said "trophy animal." This mode is called the detection mode. This allows you to examine animal tracks to help lead you to the animal. There are also photo challenges along your trips, these can also earn you a little bit of extra money throughout the game. You are also equipped with a caller, which allows you to lure the animal into the open allowing you to make the kill. For each mission that you go on there is a recommend gun to use. With the money you have earned you can buy upgrades for your gun, ammo, silencers, you know all the fancy gun equipment out there.Besides the main game play there is also a shooting gallery. In the gallery mode you can choose to play by yourself or with multiple players. You basically earn between one to three stars when you have completed the course. It goes by pretty quickly and is pretty entertaining for a good while. All your records are recorded. There are even some secret areas you can unlock which gives you a little excitement.

There are so many different locations we go to throughout the game. The backgrounds are pretty decent when it comes to detail and visual appeal. Although the animals are pretty amazing. The sounds throughout the game are good but a little repetitive. One cool feature they keep throughout their games is something called the bullet cam. What this does is every time you make a fatal show the camera goes ahead and follows the bullet in slow motion until it hits the animal.It gives the player a new and interesting point of view. Overall the game is a hit, no pun intended. It is fun and enjoyable. The graphics are decent along with the sound and sound effects.This game gives you a fun experience hunting without actually having to go out to do it.

Rayman Origins will be familiar to anyone who has played a 2D platformer before. Rayman and his buddies have to run and jump from left to right, rescuing creatures and gaining new powers as they progress through the game.

Rayman Origins is perhaps the most technically proficient 2D platformer in recent history, with tight and responsive controls pushing the action along nicely. Rayman Origins can be frustratingly difficult at times, but like any well-made game, you always know that you are the one at fault for your inability to progress, not the game. Like any other challenging game, you will eventually manage to surmount even the most impossible challenges through trial and error.

The environments that all this running and jumping takes place in looks absolutely incredible. Rayman Origins takes advantage of the PS3 as much as a 2D platformer possibly could, using its power to create a world that looks like a particularly beautiful Saturday morning cartoon. The game also makes use of a whimsical soundtrack that matches every level blow for blow. There are even several levels that revolve around instruments that create the games soundtrack.

In fact, the sound in general does more for Rayman Origins than any other single element. From the aforementioned music to the noises made by the adorable Electoons that you are supposed to rescue and beyond, Rayman Origins bleeds a weird sort of whimsy that it seems like only this team can manage to pull off.

Can't take all that whimsy on your own? No problem, Rayman Origins has a co-op mode that I consider to be the best way to play the game. Like a number of other co-op platformers, having up to four players in cramped areas takes the whimsy and turns it on its head, creating a chaotic vibe as people jump all over the screen, accidentally or purposefully punching each other in the face as they move across the screen. If all you want to do is play through the game, perhaps co-op isn't for you, but if you're just looking to have a ton of fun, the co-op offers a unique experience for you and 3 of your closest friends.

Thanks to all of its individual elements, Rayman Origins manages to come comes across as a AAA title, even if it was denied a AAA budget and a proper marketing campaign. Massive amounts of care that are above and beyond that of most games have gone into this title, and help to make it worth every cent, and even more importantly, worth every minute of your valuable time you spend with it.
