    Actually the mention of bad Halo reviews made me think of this:
    (Note: I have not played these games since they are rated "M" and aren't allowed on the Fellowship U campus, so I am basing this mini-review on Secular media reports.)
    The Halo series is a very popular first person shooter game that first appeared on the original Xbox. The single-player campaign is set in space on a giant ring-planet (that is why it is misleadingly called "halo", it has nothing to do with angels or anyone holy) where human soldiers are battling aliens for possession of the halo. The player controls the Master Chef who in a surprise twist turns out to be more than just a military cook... he's also a super soldier (I think this was the plot of a Steven Seagal movie I saw before I was born again, only that was set on a Navy ship and he fought terrorists instead of aliens. But it's the same general idea.) It's a war game, so there's lots of violence, but it's against aliens (God hasn't said anything yet about aliens, so I guess that's morally acceptable for now).
    However, the alien forces are called "the Covenant" and are depicted as having strong religious values and a desire for Salvation, so they are undoubtedly a reference to Christians. The Halo planet itself is probably a reference to the rainbow God gave as a sign of His Covenant with us (Gen. 9:12-17), which means the game's objective of keeping Halo from the aliens is really about destroying God's relationship with His creation. Typical for the Secular media, the Christians are alien bad guys and must be either led away from God or killed. Also, there's a naked woman in the game, only she's a computer and translucent, but I'm told you can still totally see stuff.
    Where the Halo series gets really bad is in its online play, which allows teams of players to fight each other to capture the flag or other objectives. Unlike in single-player, here the players are trying to kill other humans (who are actual real people, not just AIs), desensitizing them to the murder of their friends and classmates (although the games are rated "M" most players are underage). Players swear and use blasphemies constantly in the voice chat, but that's not the worst part. When a player kills another player, he goes to the corpse and does something called "tea bagging". I'm not going to describe this since it's gross, but, according to Skeet, it's something that homosexuals do to each other. Why would they do this in a game!? (That's not the only homosexual content. The human soldiers are referred to as "Spartans" -- the real Spartans were notorious homosexuals. Come to think of it, homosexuals have also stolen the rainbow symbol from Christians and are using it to separate people from their God by leading them astray into the "Gay lifestyle". Maybe Bungie included "tea bagging" to further their anti-Covenant theme into the multiplayer campaigns.) For violence, nudity, swearing, promoting homosexual activities and promoting the destruction of the Covenant, the Halo series gets ZERO CROSSES.

    Even though it's kinda obvious, I was still a little bummed out when I found out it's fake.

    Shadow of the Colossus

    Cameron M. gave it a 3:
    It was like most hot chicks. Pretty but boring. Taking down the Colossi was fun but getting their was not. The controls of the horse were terrible, and the gameply was terribly repetitive. I had high hopes and looked long an hard to rent this game just to take it back the next day.

    Steve H. gave it a 2:
    Horrible game. Nothing but big bosses as you would expect but you spend al your time finding weakspots and how to attack them. No real fun after the 1st monster, then everything becomes a boring, dumb, drawn out find Waldo.

    ames M. gave it a 3:
    Dude...how can some people give this a 10? It sucks ok. Ok maybe the Graphics are amazing but thats the only high point. The collosi are huge and sort of fun to kill but really. 16 Collosi to kill then thats it. Nothing else. No upgrades. Sword and Bow. Weeeee....fun...... Graphics are spectacular. But just need something more. Something else then killing Colossi with 2 weapons.... If your a fan of great adventure and graphics with almost no action get this. If not, dont.

    Way to go guys. Way to make me hate people.

    And everyone liked Symphony of the Night. Bastards.

    Square shat out this pathetic attempt to cash in on the Back to the Future concept. Robert Zemeckis would be rolling in his grave if he had to endure the Japanesey Animated rape and pillage of his trilogy. The hands down worst part of this so called game is the second act wherein robot sex is explicitly encouraged. Robots have no actual souls, their pneumatic penises pumping with no heart or feelings behind them. Doc Brown finds himself as a hobo at the "end of time" sucking cock for dog food money. Absolutely terrible in every way. 9/10.

    Halo, surprisingly enough, doesn't get an real flak. In fact there are a suprising number of 100s. More than I'd give. It's not perfect, nothing is.

    Except me.
    [Anonymous] gave it a0:
    I would like to take this time to inform all those who think this game and all its sequels are "original" to a few hurtful truths. Rabid fans may want to stop reading now. The master chief. A genetically and cybernetically enhanced human in a suit of power armour (1998). The Adeptus Astartes Space Marines from Warhammer 40K. Genetically and cybernetically enhanced humans in power armour (1987). The Halo. A self contained planetary simulation in the shape of a giant ring (1998). Larry Niven's Ringworld. A self contained planetary simulation in the shape of a giant ring (1962). So you see, no originality. And for those who don't know Halo was originally conceived in 1998 by bungie before microsoft began their buy out and bastardize games for our half rate system. Sorry if i offended you. Like I care.

    ...I would draw your attention to the graph in figure 4c. As you can see, it agrees with my findings illustrated in figures 6a, 6b and 7a. Therefore Halo did not invent dual wielding.

    That phrase there. There is nothing that infuriates me more than some smug arsehole acting like his self-important tirade about anything is actually groundbreaking or edgy. He totally 'called out' all those Halo-loving xbots, better turn away and repent because you're playing a game that has ideas that someone else had first!

    Not to derail...but it's funny because those complaints about Batman movies being too dark and edgy was what got Tim Burton fired from the original series.

    Anthony G sees through Bioshock's web of lies:
    A triumph of marketing, bribed critics, and discussion boards flooded with paid advertisers. When the diction of most positive reviewers includes A triumph of marketing, bribed critics, and discussion boards flooded with paid advertisers. You'll love that the diction of most "user's" positive reviews includes words like "intriguing" and "a boon to gamers", definitely things that I say all the time. Right on gamers!!! The best part of this title by far, are the reviewers which criticize the game for being too evil and dark. I think I'll post some reviews which criticize it for being too super-duper-fun too! NEATO! Ok gamers, suit up and go buy the awesomest game ever. Wait...is that a glitchy, repetitive, clumsy, pile of un-playtested goodness on my screen? Without multiplayer? Yeah well BUY ANOTHER COPY it's definitely going to be even BETTER THE SECOND TIME AROUND! 1/10

    For Al C, Mario Kart: Double Dash means many things all at once:
    Wo!!! This game sucks, the animation is blury and the effects are too fast, its too much to control. Way over the top dullness. 0/10

    Steve S is adamant about not buying into the Mario hype (Paper Mario 2):
    It is ok, but once you have been playing for a while you begin to notice that it seems like a gba game. I have alot of gripes. The dialogue isn't funny Poor inventory system battle system isnt all that fun Also, don't be fooled by the fact that this is a mario game. It isn't terrible but its not good. Not all games with mario are good! If you like mario and luigi, you wont like this because its worse than that gba game. Play that instead. Even if its for a little kid who doesnt notice flaws, it will be too hard for them. Buy something good. Don't be fooled by Mario. Those reviewers just slap a high score on all things mario. 6/10

    Jef F didn't like Twilight Princess, but he's a fountain of ideas:
    [***SPOILERS***] It is a good game, and a horrible Zelda game. Half of all the other Zelda games involves talking to people and helping them. In this game there are very few people and the only time you need to help them is to keep the main plot going. Very few distractions (heart pieces, fishing, bugs, poes, thats it) and the distractions are tedious. It was easy and fast to finish and my biggest dissapointment was that I was hoping for fierce diety to be in here somewhere. Its the twilight and the darkness, why couldn't they have put in a quasi evil link - it would have been perfect! I was even hoping that zant would bE some kind of incarnation of oni link, but no, hes just a wierd guy that has gannon's power. and why did Gannondorf die at the end. He can't die if he is in the wind waker. The ending didn't make sense. The plotline was banal. Very few twists that were exciting. Very few new opportunities in this game (though fighting that guy on the bridge on top of epona was cool) overall, step up your game Nintendo! Your getting lazy! 1/10

    Mic Math gives his reasoned opinion of Viewtiful Joe:
    My brother thinks it's so cool, but I like yoshi and mario better! Mario for President! 0/10

    D reveals two glaring flaws with Mercenaries:
    First of all, you can't kill innocent people, when you're shot at it looks like the bullets are going 12 miles per hour. Just not that good. 3/10

    And just for variety...

    Laura gives us a premonitional review of Sonic The Hedgehog for the 360:
    I haven't played the game (since I don't have a next-gen system) but by looking at the cutscenes and the gameplay, I can already tell this is an awesome game. Sure they use the terrible 4Kids voices for the cast but Silver's, Blaze's and Eggman's really isn't all that bad (for 4Kids actors). The cutscenes graphics are amazing, they come so close to the actual graphics in the game play that it really blew my mind. Not to mention that this game had Orchestral music and that always wins me over. I have been a Sonic fan since the early 2000's and I am still hooked. Just because the critics give it a bad rating, doesn't mean it should drive fans away. I think that this is a really promising game, and I hope there are more like this one in the near future. 10/10

    It's even more hilarious when people complain about the junction system because it is too complicated. And about drawing, which you have to do a bit in the beginning if you want to do the Fire Cavern in under 10 minutes, partway through the game to get certain GF's, and at the end to get some Ultimas and Meltdowns.

    Regarding FFVII, the game didn't age well.

    For many, including me, the gameplay elements of Final Fantasy VIII are fine. Seriously, if you can't figure out junctioning everything to your three main dudes, then I don't know what to say. The problem I have with the game is it feels very guide oriented, which is a shame. Also, I was not a fan of a lot of the artistic and scenario decisions in that game. Overall, it just felt disjointed, like it was three separate final fantasies trying to occupy the same four disks.

    VII was essentially VI, but with less steampunk and more cyberpunk until the edgy cyberpunk stuff ended at disk one.

    In VIII's defense, it had a great level of difficulty and some truly fun bosses.

If you are playing it, just run from the monsters because it is not even worth killing them. I could not stand the graphics. If a chair was in front of a door you could not open it. In real life you would move the chair. If you swing with the pipe, instead of hitting the wall it goes right through it. Walking down the street at night all you could see was the yellow lines on the road...how could anyone call that good graphics. Anyone who thought this game was good go play metal gear solid 2...no comparison...not even a little...SILENT HILL 2 is the absolute worst. Graphics stink, control of the character stinks, I still don't understand the story....after finishing the game.

    Silent Hill 2 and Metal Gear Solid 2: Totally comparable.

    It's no fun at all. The time limit is too short, so it is almost impossible to get the feel for it.

    Yeah, if only Silent Hill 2 had more atmosphere so you could get a feel for it.

    To be fair, those two are probably fools.

    Maybe even charlatans.

    I have played FFVII way past its prime, and it has shitty graphics, the music can sometimes be annoying (well, rarely), the plot is confusing, and the game also had crashes that I needed to patch my way through. I did not even get to hear the choir for the final boss battle.

    FFVII is a game that was rushed so hard they couldn't even go for a consistent artstyle troughout the cutscenes, and they still added minigames to it. And they made a PC port, which I have played, based on hearsay (Square couldn't muster up the original assets because they were lost). And I've played it on the XP, which added not-so-random crashes into obligatory superfluous minigames.

    And they still needed to outsource a huge chunk of the game. I'd say half the credits scroll is taken up by all the people that did those extra FMV's, though that's just my poor estimate.

    And I've played it all the way through. Because it was FUN.

    It pains me to read comments to a game like Deus Ex because people do not know how to run the game properly. Remember Betrayal in Antara? I liked the demo, but I only had the chance to play the game a few years later. If anybody tried to fire up this game now, you would be presented with a gay rainbow of broken colours, and if you tried turning you would drill a hole in the ground because the devs didn't think of putting some sort of fps cap on the game. Now, if I were stupid, I'd post a 0 review saying the full version is broken and unplayable, but instead I've managed to make a really old game run properly, and I can tell you that the game deserves a solid 8, maybe 9, possibly because I liked the magic system. It did some pretty neat stuff. Very linear, but ultimately fun.

    And I love Deus Ex, that was a gaming revolution in my book.

    I think you mean philistines. I mix those words up a lot myself.

    The game is childish and uninteresting after small quantities of gameplay. I was really hoping for something better, wow.

    *yawn* Most boring piece of crap I've ever played. I have nothing constructive to say other than don't play this. EA Fails once again.

    These are from reviewers? They read like message board posts. And not good posts either.

    In Mike's defense, the story isn't the most straightforward in a game. But it's wonderful and my 16 year old sister understood it PERFECTLY when she was watching me play it. (She loves the Silent Hill games, but isn't good at them. She panics too much, and prefers to watch someone play.) She even got the deal with Angela before the second encounter was over.

    Wait what. Silent Hill 2 has a TIME LIMIT? What's B.Will talking about?
