Mass Effect | Review by Gallifrey

Hello gamers and welcome to the end of week nine in our 100 reviews in 100 days countdown. We’re rapidly approaching the midway point in our list and we’ve still got a ton of great titles to show you.  Exploring the universe in the 56 position… Talking about Mass Effect got tricky a couple of years ago. Mass Effect 3, which clocked in at number 96 on our list, was (unfairly or not) absolutely torched by fans of the series for what was widely held to be a subpar ending. Can you tell I told myself “phrase that last part...

Batman: Arkham Asylum | Review by Thor

Hello gamers and welcome to day four, week nine of our 100 reviews in 100 days! Crusading directly into the 57 position… There have been numerous super hero games in the past. Most of these games end up a major flop. For some reason capturing the awesome power of a super hero in a video game has been elusive at best. Batman: Arkham Asylum dodged this bullet by immersing the player in the same world we have all grown to love, and twisted it just enough to make a great game.   BAM! POW!! Batman: Arkham Asylum brings the caped...

God of War | Review by Exemplaris

Welcome, gamers, to day three of week eight in our 100 reviews in 100 days. We’ve got another titan on our hands today. Slashing his way into the 58 spot…. Think for a while, and come up with some of the greatest bosses possible for a video game. Come up with some good ones? I’d bet a couple of them were Gods, but for an action/adventure game, no other would do, than what you get in God of War.   Game of Legends God of War was released on PlayStation 2 and immediately made an impact on gaming. The story...

Halo 3 | Review by Thor

Hello gamers and welcome to day two of week nine in our 100 reviews in 100 days countdown! We’ve got an EPIC game on the list today… Finishing the Fight in the #59 position… 2007 was a fairly big year in gaming. Bioshock, Assassin’s Creed, and Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare all came out along with the finale to the Halo Covenant trilogy, Halo 3. Halo 3 launched on the Xbox 360 exclusively and quickly became the bestselling video game of 2007. It was the first Halo game on the Xbox 360 and the last time that Bungie would...

The Legend of Zelda: Majoras Mask | Review by Exemplaris

Hello gamers and welcome to day one, week nine of our 100 reviews in 100 days. Just a reminder, we’ve teamed up with pwnrank.com to bring you the top 100 games that the internet is talking about. Walking us through the five stages of grief in the #60 position… Majora ’s Mask came out on Nintendo 64 with great expectations. Although, it wasn’t quite what a lot of players were expecting as a follow up to Ocarina of Time. Like the antagonist of the game, it was slightly….odd. Despite, or maybe because of, its oddities Majora ‘s Mask is known...

The Sims | Review by Gambit

Hello gamers and welcome to the end of week eight on our 100 reviews in 100 days! I’ll admit, this week has been a little lackluster on the titles, but here we are at number 61. Simulating the number 61 spot…   So, if you’ve been following the countdown, you’ve probably noticed that each title is reviewed by someone that generally likes the game… This one got kicked around the office quite a lot before I ended up drawing the short straw and having to do it. The Sims, to me, is a gaming anomaly. I’ve never seen the draw....

Sonic The Hedgehog | Review by Gallifrey

Hello gamers and welcome back to our 100 reviews in 100 days. We’ve come to day four in our eight week of the countdown and we’ve got an awesome 16-bit treat for you. Speeding into the 62 position… Let’s go back to the days of yore (and yes, at this point, the late 80s and early 90s are the days of yore. Anytime before the advent of the interwebs is basically the Stone Age now), when Sega was the Stallone to Nintendo’s Schwarzenegger. Like Stallone, Sega had some great titles to its name, but it could never get out from...

Space Invaders | Review by Exemplaris

Hey guys and gals, welcome to day three of our eighth week of our 100 reviews in 100 days countdown. We’ve got a genuine classic on the list today. Shooting for the 63rd spot on the list… We’re not talking about the flies you heard were buzzing around inside that cheerleader’s head back in high school. Dropping in is 1978’s arcade game, Space Invaders. One of the earliest shooter games, Space Invaders has had influences across gaming history. Gameplay Most people are familiar with how this game is played, but in case you haven’t had the chance, here’s a quick...

Wii Sports | Review by Gambit

Hello again gamers and welcome to day two in week eight of our 100 reviews in 100 days countdown. We’ve got a bit of a casual titan on our hands today. Casually Strolling into the #64 spot… Wii Sports is a difficult game to approach when writing a review. We’ve all played it… Most of us made the head first dive into Nintendo’s new innovative console, enjoyed it for a month and then gave it to our grandparents. What was it about Wii Sports that made everyone lose their minds? Do we hate it because it ushered in far too...
