Edgy, cringe inducing shooting gallery with very little content. Once you've mauled someone's face once or twice, you've seen it all. Would not recommend at it's current price point.

The Warriors is the greatest licensed game of all time. They took a cult film, and not only adapted it beautifully, they expanded upon it's lore. Great combat, tons of modes, everything is playable in coop. What's not to love here? Check it out!

SpongeBob SquarePants: The Cosmic Shake is one of the best, if not, the best SpongeBob game of all time. From the animations, the writing, the voice acting, the visuals, it’s downright beautiful and feels like a true extension of the TV show. I had my doubts that Purple Lamp Studios could pull off a true, original sequel to Battle for Bikini Bottom, but the madlads have done it. Pick this game up ASAP.

This is one of the best racing games on the PS2 easily, it pales in comparison to something more modern like Wreckfest, but for the time it was incredible. Great destruction, cars are a handful to steer, and the career mode is deep enough to keep you engaged. The soundtrack is lacking, not that it's bad or anything, there just isn't enough of it. Highly recommend if you enjoy FlatOut or Wreckfest.
I'll admit, I lean more towards sims like Assetto Corsa, Automobilista 2, etc but I really wanted a fun game on a controller. I've already gotten a ton of time out of Gran Turismo 7, so I wanted something else. I saw GRID Legends on gamepass and thought, no way this is good right? Well, the driving physics are actually quite good on a controller. It's not realistic or anything sure, but it plays out just like a GRID or non-Rally Dirt game would. Having an actual storymode that isn't tied to a real world motorsport allows them to get away with more, which is interesting. I also find it fascinating that you can play the career mode online with your friends and randoms, which is neat. The biggest downfall of this game comes down to the AI, they will shove you into walls and act like you're not even there half the time. There's also a "Rival" mechanic, where the AI will purposely try to wreck you if you rub/smash/run into them too many times. It's frustrating and doesn't belong in a motorsport game, or a game with so little visual damage to the cars. Overall, it's a fun little time waster and that's exactly what I wanted. Good job Grid devs, work on the AI next time.
It's like if Left 4 Dead had microtransactions and guns that hardly function over their melee counterparts. Amazing visuals, sound and atmosphere though.

The Getaway: Black Monday improves on just about everything from the first game, from combat, to driving and navigation, it's everything I wanted improved from the first game. Sadly the story just didn't resonate with me like the first game did. Still, a worthy sequel and worth your time if you're into crime games.

What a game this was, solid story with a well-acted cast of characters. I was very immersed in this game's world, especially considering the game doesn't have a HUD. Everything from health bars, targeting and even navigation is done with zero HUD. It's The Getaway's biggest pro and it's biggest con. If you can come to grips with the fact that you don't have GPS or even mission markers, The Getaway is a frustrating but fun game.
Another boring, bland modern Need For Speed release. Graphics are pretty though.
Truly one of the worst fighting games I've ever played, and definitely the worst on N64.
Best COD multiplayer in over a decade.

The Thing starts off as an excellent sequel to John Carpenter's 1982 film of the same name. It's dark, cold, moody and most importantly, creepy. But as time goes on, those feelings start to fall off and it becomes a much more stale and bland action game, where Thing monsters aren't even your primary enemy anymore. Real shame, however I do still think you should play this if you're a fan of the film.
