A wonderful new trainXbomborz | March 17, 2012 | Review of Railworks 3: Class 33
The Class 33 Expansion Pack for Railworks 3 is a great new addition to a great game. The authentic and inspired style of the train itself makes an impression, but the addition of three other innovative scenarios makes this pack even better. Take my advice: buy this pack!

An expensive but fun expansion pack!!!Xbomborz | Oct. 27, 2011 | Review of Amtrak Acela Express Add-on
The Railworks 3: Acela Express expansion pack is a great new addition to an already great game, albeit, at an expensive price. Featuring the Amtrack Acela train, its business, first class, and cafe car, along with multiple new scenarios, this pack is chock-full of gameplay. However, some may be turned off by its $20 pricetag. If you love the Amtrack Acela train and want more gameplay for Railworks 3 at any price, you should buy this pack.
An explosive addition to a great game!Xbomborz | Oct. 14, 2011 | Review of Deus Ex Human Revolution: Explosive Mission Pack
The Deus Ex Human Revolutino Explosive Mission pack is great for all fans of, well, explosions.

If you love explosive action in an already amazing game, the Explosive Mission pack is for you!
One of the goriest games of all time, but also one of the best!!Xbomborz | Oct. 14, 2011 | Review of Manhunt Capsule
Manhunt by renowned studio Rockstar Games is a violent and bloody stealth game that is both exciting and extremely frightening at the same time.
Featuring brutal death sequences and extreme violence, this game is not for the feint of heart, but, as part of the stealth genre, is one of the best.
If you love stealth games (or blood and gore), this game is for you...
A great new weapons pack for Deus Ex!Xbomborz | Oct. 14, 2011 | Review of Deus Ex Human Revolution: Tactical Enhancement Pack
The Deus Ex Human Revolution: Tactical Enhancement Pack is an awesome new DLC that adds 2 new guns and gives you an extra 10,000 credits for use in-game.
Although the Double-Barrel Shotgun is more of a "for-fun" weapons, the Silenced Sniper Rifle is a deadly and useful alternative to many of the machine guns in the game.
I personally loved using this sniper during my "stealth" approaches to a mission. This is a must-have DLC if you could use the extra credits or would love to try out these new guns.
An ok gun for a great game...Xbomborz | Oct. 3, 2011 | Review of Sanctum: Penetrator DLC
This DLC pack adds the Penetrator gun to the game Sanctum by Coffee Stain Sutdios. Although the main game has only a few different guns, this pack does add some variety, though only for the first few hours. The Pentrator is almost like a rocket launcher, except much, much slower, a weakness that detracts from its value in in-game usage. Although it is nice to see some new DLC for Sanctum, I think that they could have put out a better and more useful gun.
A wonderful addition to Railworks 2!Xbomborz | Sept. 15, 2011 | Review of Railworks 3: The Northeast Corridor DLC

A great new strategy and simulation game from ParadoxXbomborz | Aug. 8, 2011 | Review of Hearts of Iron III: For the Motherland DNS

Just like Lego Star Wars, Lego Batman, and Lego Indiana Jones before it, Lego Harry Potter Years 1-4 is innovative and fun for all ages, Featuring a storyline following that of the first four Harry Potter Films, this game turns the Harry Potter universe into Legos with stunning detail. With a great score, good voice acting, and a high overall production value, this is a wonderful addition to your collection.
An amazing addition to the Lego video game franchise!!!Xbomborz | Aug. 8, 2011 | Review of LEGO Batman: The Videogame DNS
Lego Batman: The Videogame is many things. Creative. Innovative. Fun to play. Imaginative. This game continues Lego's tradition of making great franchises into amazing kids games that are fun even for adults. Following the Lego Star Wars series of games, Lego Batman continues the zaniness of the series through an original story of Batman, Robin, and the villains and heroes of Gotham City. Complete with Danny Elfman's original score, this game has an amazing sense of style and atmosphere, and I can't recommend it enough.
An awesome, themed adventure game!!!Xbomborz | Aug. 8, 2011 | Review of The Rockin' Dead
The Rockin' Dead, although a newer game, follows the same path as many great point and click games of the past. With a humorous and intriguing storyline, detailed graphics, and intuitive gameplay, this game closely follows the point and click genre while still being innovative and new. If you love humor, and deep and original gameplay, you should get The Rockin' Dead.
An awesome puzzle game!!!Xbomborz | July 29, 2011 | Review of Boulder Dash XL
Boulder Dash XL is a wonderful sequel to its big brother of the 1980s.

Another fun addition to Railworks 2, even with the price tag...Xbomborz | July 29, 2011 | Review of RailWorks 2: Class 421 4CIG Expansion Pack
This add-on to Railworks 2 adds 2 new liveries and a total of 5 excellent new scenarios. The passenger trains that have been added in this DLC make the game feel more alive, and the new scenarios help to support that as you run your trains around your world Even with the extravagant price tag, this add on is a worthy addition tow Railworks 2.
An awesome addition to the franchise!!!Xbomborz | July 29, 2011 | Review of Alien Breed 2: Assault
After Alien Breed: Impact, this game is the second best in the franchise.

Chock full of awesome aliens, crazy guns, and enjoyable coop throughout the entire game, Alien Breed: Impact is a great gaming experience for all.
An old favorite series returns, better than ever!!!Xbomborz | July 29, 2011 | Review of Worms Reloaded
I played through a Worms game while ago and I absolutely LOVED it. With the quirky worms, awesome weapons, and nonstop action, Worms Reloaded was one of my favorite games. Now, after getting the chance to replay, I see how the game is even better than I remember it. Including a massive single player campaign, online multiplayer, and local multiplayer, this game is a blast alone and with friends. The zaniness of the Worms franchise lives on in Worms Reloaded.
A mediocre, yet fun, RTS game...Xbomborz | July 29, 2011 | Review of Warlords Battlecry 3
Although many today are looking for the perfect RTS experience nowadays, you will not find that experience here in Warlords Battlecry 3. With so-so graphics, below average units and level design, a weak story, and bland, boring action sequences, this game is tough to start. However, in the second half, new developments and units help to freshen this game up and actually make it more fun to play. Warlords Battlecry 3 is hard to start playing, but ends up being a blast to finish.
A great addition to a wonderful strategy game!!Xbomborz | July 29, 2011 | Review of Total War: Shogun 2 DLC - Sengoku Jidai Unit Pack
This pack for Total War: Shogun 2 adds a huge amount of new units that the player can use to decimate his foes. From the Fire Cavalry, to the Mounted Gunner, to the Wako Raider, each of these new units has different attributes, tactics, and weapons that help to bring a sense of freshness to the game. For the $3.25 price tag, this pack for Total War: Shogun 2 is a steal!!!
A parody of BFBC2:Vietman, but a great one at that!!Xbomborz | July 28, 2011 | Review of Magicka: Vietnam DLC
Although this DLC pack is meant to poke fun at Battlefield Bad Company 2's DLC pack, it is a great addition to Magicka if you are a die-hard fan. Complete with new "weapons," a great storyline, fun gameplay, and amazing and responsive enemy AI, this package is a great experience for all who like the main Magicka game.
Almost as good as Railworks 2!!Xbomborz | July 26, 2011 | Review of Sid Meier's Railroads!
This game is almost like an "original" version of Railworks 2, with some minor bugs and differences in gameplay. Filled with hundreds of miles of track, scenic routes, detailed and interesting trains and cars, and fun design and a high production value, Sid Meier's Railroads! was and is a leap from the technology and presentation of past simulators. Overall, if you love playing with model trains and trains simulators, this game is for you!
A fun and creative shooter/action game!!!Xbomborz | July 26, 2011 | Review of Woody Two-Legs: Attack of the Zombie Pirates DNS
Woody Two-Legs is in the same style as many point and click adventure games, while still including a "shooting" mechanic for added fun. With multiple difficulty levels, a global score leaderboard, varied monsters and bosses, and great unlockables, Woody Two-Legs is a great single player experience. If you love quirky stories, likeable characters, and a fun gaming experience, this game is for you!
A great addition to an already awesome game!!!Xbomborz | July 26, 2011 | Review of ARMA II Operation Arrowhead
ARMA II Operation Arrowhead is a wonderful addition to the collection of any ARMA or shooter fan. Filled with nonstop action, a great story, beautiful graphics, a wide array of shooting mechanics and weapons, and, overall, very enjoyable gameplay, this game add-on is great. I would recommend this game to anybody who loves to have a great time playing their games.
A HUGE dissapointment!!Xbomborz | July 23, 2011 | Review of Duke Nukem Forever
After 14 years, yes, 14 YEARS of development, this game is absolutely, mind-blowingly bad. Why the developers couldn't put some more effort into this game, I have no idea, but the massive amount of glitches, terrible story, repetitive gameplay, and an overall unremarkable game are the products of their work. 2K, I am disappointed in the product that you have given to your consumers. The project ultimately just should have been scrapped.
A great strategy game!!Xbomborz | July 22, 2011 | Review of Supreme Ruler: Cold War DNS
This is a great strategy game for fans of evolving gameplay, random events, fast-paced action, and government/military/economic management. Supreme Ruler Cold War provides variety and innovation to the stagnant strategy genre, which is exactly what the genre needs. If you like playing as multiple factions with a large "world map" style of gameplay, this game is for you!!
A fun I-Spy like game!Xbomborz | July 21, 2011 | Review of The Secret of Margrave Manor
Although this game is a little bit dated, the gameplay and quirky story is not. With ever changing rooms that change and adapt each time you explore them, gameplay can last for hours. Addtionally, this game, unlike many other hidden object games, actually is challenging due to its variety and difficult to see objects. If you are a fan of hidden object games, this is definitely one for you!!
Just as good as Audiosurf!!Xbomborz | July 21, 2011 | Review of Beat Hazard
If you are a fan of Audiosurf, you would love this game! As you listen to your own music library, the game adapts and changes, becoming harder during more intense sequences and easier during slower parts of the song. Due to this mechanic, the gameplay really doesn't get old, partially because of the song variety of one's collection. If you are a fan of listening to your own music while playing a game, Beat Hazard is a must-own game.
A wonderful alternative to WOWXbomborz | July 21, 2011 | Review of Rift
After years of WOW towering over the market, it is about time for a game to come along and be just as good. Featuring a new and interesting storyline, characters, and gameplay, Rift is a fresh take on the aging and competitive MMO genre. Although it does still feel like, well, WOW, new and innovative gameplay features help to make this game feel fresh and new.
An amazing game if you love free-roaming!!Xbomborz | July 21, 2011 | Review of Just Cause 2
Just Cause 2 is the perfect free roam game, with a mix of action, adventure, secrets, easter eggs, and just plain fun. Although the game has a so-so storyline, the characters are likeable, the gadgets are awesome, and the gameplay is just plain spectacular. If you are a fan of GTA, Saint's Row, or Red Dead Redemption, you would love this game.
For a beta release, this game is going to be amazing!!!Xbomborz | July 21, 2011 | Review of Space Pirates And Zombies
I seen previews for this game before and I was excited. Now, after getting the chance to play it, I am super excited for the full release. With a spectacular visual style, fun and easy controls and gameplay, intuitive new features, and a funky, over the top storyline, this beta release is shaping up into an awesome game. I would recommend Space Pirates and Zombies to anybody who loves action/RTS/puzzle games (because this is a hybrid of all of those) and to anybody who is just looking to have a fun time playing and awesome new game.
An awesome DLC pack!!Xbomborz | July 20, 2011 | Review of Pride of Nations: The Spanish-American War
This pack for Pride of Nations is absolutely great, including its historical details, epic gameplay, massive battles, and an overall great product design. With a realistic depiction of the Spanish American War, this add on is a great addition to an already wonderful game. Even though I thought that the main game was better, this is still well worth the super-cheap price!!!
A steep price, but well worth it!Xbomborz | July 19, 2011 | Review of RailWorks 2 Union Pacific Big Boy DLC
This is another awesome DLC pack for Railworks 2, complete with 2 new scenarios. I personally prefer the larger trains in the game over the smaller, more compact ones, so this pack, which the train, 2 flatcars, and the scenarios, is perfect for a person like me. Although a little bit expensive, this pack is every bit worth it, and If you are a fan of big, fast trains, this pack is a must buy!!
A fun, educational game for childrenXbomborz | July 10, 2011 | Review of Clever Kids: Pirates
This game, just like the others in the series, delivers in teaching kids critical skills for their childhood including math, reading, social studies, and science with a fun Pirate theme. This game effectively helps children, all while staying true to the underlying theme of Pirates. Although this game is a little bit expensive, the amount of content that you get makes it a great deal for you and your children.
A bit overpriced, but still pretty goodXbomborz | July 10, 2011 | Review of RailWorks 2: Class 111 Train Expansion Pack
I've been a fan of Railworks 2 since it came out, and this DLC pack, although expensive, is well worth it if you are looking for a beautiful new route and some pretty awesome trains to run on it. I personally prefer classic trains to newer trains, and this pack delivers! If you don't mind the price, you definitely should buy this pack!!
A nice RTS game if you enjoy Medieval battlesXbomborz | July 10, 2011 | Review of XIII Century - Death or Glory
Although I'm usually not a fan of RTS games, I gave this one a try because I love Medieval/Renaissance games (such as Assassin's Creed). This game surprised me with 5 different campaigns for French, Rus, Mongolians, English, and Germans, a massive scale, large armies, and simple controls. This may not be the most innovative or original game that I have seen or played, but XIII Century Death or Glory ended up being a lot of fun and I enjoyed my time playing through it.
Unfortunately, one of the worst sims I've seenXbomborz | July 10, 2011 | Review of Agricultural Simulator 2011
This game attempts to follow in the path of such simulators as Flight Simulator X and Roller Coaster Tycoon, but ends up being vastly inferior. With outdated graphics, a horrible physics engine which sends farming equipment literally bouncing off of objects, poor sound quality, and a whole list of other problems, this is a disappointment. I bought this game thinking that it would be similar to the John Deere Drive Green game which I really love, but this just ends up being a mess of a copycat. Although it is playable, this game could have and should have been better.
