All Action & Adventure PlayStation2 4.0 (34 votes)
In 1998, the PC's original "Half-Life" changed first-person shooters forever by proving that a compelling story can be told within the genre; prior to its release, FPSs were mindless action games, but although "Half-Life" certainly had its fair share of action, it also contained plenty of exploration, puzzle, and story elements. Now, as a PlayStation 2 game, it's never looked or played better. This version contains the outstanding single-player story mode, as well as a few new ones; while the new additions aren't so great, the story mode is one of the best adventures on the PS2.
The game follows the escapades of Gordon Freeman, a young research associate at the Black Mesa Federal Research Facility. A typical day at the office goes completely awry as numerous alien life forms invade the facility; the fate of said facility, and quite possibly the world, is in the hands of an unlikely hero...
The graphics here trump the originals (understandable since there are more than three years between the two releases)--the character models have four times as many polygons, as well as smoother textures and animations. The sound is also very good, with some of the funniest voice acting yet heard in a game. Of course the single-player gameplay is excellent, thanks to some very well-developed enemy artificial intelligence. Unfortunately the new modes aren't nearly as brilliant. Decay, the new cooperative mode, seems like an afterthought and pales in comparison to the cooperative modes in "Perfect Dark" and "Halo". Deathmatches only support two players, which is incredibly lame considering many PS2 first-person shooters support four. But despite these flawed modes, the single-player story is so superb that it totally justifies the purchase. "--Raymond M Padilla"

Kan tycka att kontrollen är hastig och sisådär. Bra spel när det kom, men när jag spelar det idag (sent 2007) känns det föråldrat. Gör sig troligen bättre vid en dator. Tvåan är bättre och finns med i The Orange Box.

Half-Life 2: The Orange Box  
Action & Adventure PLAYSTATION 3 4.5 (19 votes)
The Orange Box is a collection of five games. The Orange Box contains Half-Life 2, Half-Life 2: Episode One, Half-Life 2: Episode Two, Portal and Team Fortress 2. Already the box gives you a plethora of content which basically means you are paying just above ten dollars per game (depends on the price at purchase) – which is definitely a great value. The PC and Xbox 360 versions of the game were handled by Valve themselves but they gave Electronic Arts (EA) the job of porting the game to the Playstation 3. Because of this transition, many problems unbeknownst to the PC and Xbox 360 version arise in the Playstation 3 version.

Laggar något ibland och laddar ofta och lite väl länge.
Annars brilliant samling. Half-Life 2 får inte missas om man gillar FPS och Episod 1 och 2 verkar hålla kvalité (har inte spelat dom än). Portal känns nytt och fräscht och får en att klura en del. Team Fortress 2 är härliga tider om man gillar onlinespel. 2Fort är den bästa av banorna och är en klassisk capture the flag varriant.

Harvest Moon GB  
Retro Gaming & Microconsoles Game Boy Color
Before beginning, the player is able to choose whether to play as a girl or a boy, and name themselves. At the beginning of the game, the player's deceased grandfather visits them as a spirit and asks them to take over his farm. He implores them to succeed him as a Ranch Master, stating he will check on the player at the end of each winter to determine his progress. The player must develop their farm by growing and selling crops, and raising livestock to reach this goal. If the farm meets his criteria for you to be a Ranch Master, the player may receive extra tools; if he thinks the farm doesn't, a Game Over is given.

Harvest Moon: A Wonderful Life  
Strategy & Simulation GameCube 4.5 (33 votes)
I've always loved harvest moon games, so when i heard one was coming out on the gamecube I couldn't wait to play it. The game itself starts off very differently to other harvest moon games, if you've played them before. In this game you start off at a farm but this time the game doesnt really rely on your crops but instead on your interaction with other characters. The game spans over a 30 year period so you can see the world around you change over time and the characters around you change, for example some characters might move into your town , move out or maybe die. Although I said crops aren't a major factor this time around you can still plant them, they just don't really get you that much money compared to the high prices of milk. Theres a new feature in the game where you cna make hybrid crops too, which I think is a great idea and adds further depth to the game.
The game this time has months of 10 days, which doesnt sound too long, but when one day takes you 24 minutes they are defintely long enough! The graphics are excellent, when you change seasons its gradually done day by day rather than instantly, so for example you can see leaves slowy falling off trees in the Fall.
The game like previous harvest moon games focuses also on you getting married, there are 3 girls to chose from each with very different characteristics. It's important you marry a girl you like because it will alter the outcome of your future, as early in the second year you will have a child to look after!! You have to get married by the end of the first year, so this is really one of your main abjectives to begin with.
The range of animals availble this time has increased, there are now different breeds of cows available and bulls. Theres also sheep, goats, chickens, dogs, cats, ducks and a horse for you to ride around your town on.
The only downside i thought of the game is the fact that it takes ages for the days to go by, and although there seems a lot to do, to beign with, you start doing things for the sake of it instead of somehting new to do. I kept on going fishing when i had nothing to, which can become tedious after a while. I'd also like to have seen more to do with farming because as the game suggests its a farming sim. I used to quite like having to clean up your farm at the beginning of the game and maintaining it, I also liked the role of crops in the previous games.
So inconclusion this game is really just what the gamecube wanted, something different, and something original. If you havent played previous versions of the game it doesnt matter, as this game is quite different to their approach anyway. I'd therefore recommend this game to anybody as long as they have the patience to get into this sort of game, because if you don't you probably won't get very far as this game certainly needs dedication. The game sets itself perfectly for a seqaul as there are areas which could be addressed, but until that one is made, make the most of this version!

Har aldrig själv avslutat hela detta spel sedan jag tröttnar på att göra samma sak dagarna i ända. Skörda och vattna, skörda och vattna. Dom övriga sakerna är intresanta och roliga men för mycket tid går till att skörda och vattna.

Harvest Moon: Magical Melody  
Simulation Wii 3.6
Harvest Moon: Magical Melody returns to the concept of the original Harvest Moon game, excluding much of the newer features brought into later titles.

Returning to the game are full 30 day seasons, festivals, and the top-down look of the originals. Also a first for the Harvest Moon series, play as either a male or a female (note: there is only a male character in the European/PAL version!) and choose from numerous spouses to marry. Other new features include buying land, placing furniture in the player's house, and numerous other things. Multiplayer mini games are also available to unlock, to play with friends and family.

Another feature is the rival system, where an opponent also tries to save the Harvest Goddess, win prizes in festivals, and be the one who ships most items on a daily basis. In the English version, the player may eventually even marry their rival, but this ends the game. Next to finding a spouse, the second major quest is saving the goddess. To do so, the player needs to reach goals to gather musical notes, to form the titular magic melody.

Haunting Gound  
Strategy Guides PlayStation2
Run for your life in a deadly game of hide and seek that mixes Resident Evil survival with Clock Tower horror, where your most powerful weapon is mans best friend.

Fear has found a new home...

Fiona wakes from a car crash, to face something far worse. She's being held prisoner in a gothic castle filled with horrors. Bloody experiments are taking place in secret laboratories. Demented monsters and sinister psychopaths stalk the corridors. What do they want with Fiona? To trick her? To trap her? To kill her? With only a friendly Alsatian for company, can you help Fiona escape the haunting grounds?

Run for your life... The only hope for survival is to tactically outsmart and evade the abominations that hunt and haunt you throughout the game.
Innovative gameplay mechanic transfers Fiona's fear directly to you... The more scared she is, the more her vision changes and the more she stumbles. Can you stay in control?
The ability to grow and develop your relationship with Hewie increases your control over him and allows for a greater range of orders that can be carried out (attacking pursuers, fetching otherwise unreachable objects, etc).
Solve the puzzles to escape... Explore the castle's environments and seek out its secrets, use its laboratories to create new weapons against your tormentors and hunt out the four terrifying endings.
Stunning environments, rich in detail, make the nightmare feel all the more real; breathtakingly realised movie scenes produced by the people behind the Onimusha CGI movies adds to the Haunting Grounds psychologically terrifying atmosphere.

Att bli överfallen när man minst anar det är spännande och minst sagt stressande. Missen i detta spel ligger i att det är för långt och blir för enformigt. Skaplig story och bra cutscenes gör att man fortsätter.

PLAYSTATION 3 4.0 (18 votes)

One of the reasons Rare are such a controversial developer nowadays (apart from the whole Nintendo selling them to Microsoft thing) is the fact that a lot of people associated with GoldenEye and Perfect Dark left the company a long time ago. Many of them ended up at Free Radical Design, where they created the love-it-or-loathe-it TimeSpliters series and the underappreciated Second Sight. Haze ditches the stylised look of their older games though, with a game set in a future world dominated by mega global corporation Mantel - where you're cast as one of their soldiers fighting rebels in South America.
Like all fictional global corporations Mantel is up to no good and it turns out their drug NECTAR is doing more than just making you a super soldier with increased speed, strength and accuracy. Highlighting enemies under cover from you, as well as grenades and bobby traps is all very good but the downside is it also turns you (and your teammates) psychotic if you use it too much. Worse it seems to sanitise the world around you, making corpses invisible and even obscuring the true nature of the landscape around you…
Rebel soldiers are able to take advantage of the reality bending powers of NECTAR, such as playing dead to regain their health or using a special "weapons steal" move to make up for their lack of hardware (both of which moves work great in multiplayer). With arguably the most interesting storyline in any current first person shooter and a custom made graphics engine Haze's future looks crystal clear. "Harrison Dent"

Hitman: Absolution  
Action PlayStation 3
Hitman: Absolution is the fifth game in the stealth assassin series starring Agent 47 as the protagonist. The story continues after the events of the previous game, Hitman: Blood Money. Diana Burnwood, Agent 47's handler with the International Contract Agency, goes rogue and sets up a sabotage operation that risks exposing the entire agency. Benjamin Travis reforms the agency and puts a hit on Burnwood, tasking Agent 47 to kill her and bring back the teenage girl Victoria that is in her care. Early on in the game he tracks down Diana, but hesitates when he has the opportunity to kill her. From there, the story unfolds into a larger conspiracy that puts the girl Victoria in the center. Compared to the previous game, 47 now often has an emotional bond with the victims and he becomes hunted himself as well.

Rather than independent missions, they are now linked together with sections where 47 travels from one location to another. The basic gameplay is still present. He often has to infiltrate locations to take out a specific target and disappear again. Points are scored by completing primary and secondary objectives, along with the chosen method. Choosing a careful approach based on stealth and non-lethal kills is always rewarded more. After missions a ranking is shown and it is compared to players worldwide. In addition there are separate challenges to complete, such as using a certain amount of different weapons or disguises. Points are used to access upgrades that enhance Agent 47's skills, such as less visibility when hiding, more accuracy when shooting, less time to strangle opponents or faster melee combat. When the operation goes wrong, full out shooting is also possible, but will not lead to the best reward.

The core gameplay is still based around looking for cover, taking out and dragging people out of sight, and some acrobatic maneuvers. Certain parts of the environment can be used to jump or to hang on a ledge, but not everything. A feature called Instinct shows whether a certain part can be used or not. Instinct is gathered through actions in the game. It can also be used to activate Point Shooting. This mechanic allows Agent 47 to stop time, mark the opponents, and then continue to fire and kill quickly in succession. Another Instinct feature is the ability to look through walls to see the location of enemies and their movement pattern. A further use is bluff. When wearing a disguise, certain characters may still recognize him, especially when he gets too close. In those situations a bluff can be made as a last resort that eats up a lot of Instinct. Agent 47 will then make a move that throws them off so they lose their suspicion.

His main weapon is the signature Silverballer pistol with a silencer. Two of them can be equipped and used together. Weapons left behind by enemies can also be picked up and used. In addition there is room for gadgets such as a piano string, but also items found in the environment such as bottles, bricks, hammers, knives etc. They are used to kill or can be thrown to create a distraction. As enemies often patrol in groups, they need to be isolated and their movement needs to be studied. Strangled enemies can either be killed or just be rendered unconscious. To avoid alarms, they always need to be hidden, out of sight.

Next to the main mission, Contracts can be completed as an asynchronous multiplayer mode. These are custom tasks created by the developer or other players. Anyone can mark a specific target in a level and determine how he ought to be killed, based on a certain weapon or disguise for instance. These challenges can then be taken on by other players. Up to three victims can be assigned to a single Contract.

Hotel Dusk: Room 215  
Adventure Nintendo DS 4.0 (50 votes)

Part hard-boiled detective story, and part interactive mystery, "Hotel Dusk: Room 215" is an intriguingly addictive yarn that takes place over the course of one night; December 24, 1979.
Game Storyline
Kyle Hyde, a disgraced New York detective turned salesman, arrives at a run-down Los Angeles inn called Hotel Dusk. Once there, Kyle soon becomes involved in a 30-year-old mystery that involves lies, betrayal, kidnapping, and murder.

"Wander into the Hotel Dusk and find yourself part of a 30-year-old mystery."

"Unveil the secrets of the main character, Kyle Hyde. View larger."

"Unique dual screen gameplay makes the mystery all the more engaging. View larger." And over the course of the night, he will also discover something very special about Room 215, a room that is said to grant wishes.
But who is Kyle Hyde? Why does his past haunt him? And what happened in Room 215? Only by taking a stylus in hand and navigating through the story's twists and turns can you learn the answers.
Players hold their Nintendo DS like a book and use the touch screen to grill characters, search for clues, and solve mystifying puzzles. Simple point-and-click touch screen navigation allows for players of any skill level to play.
Hotel Dusk uses branching storylines to tell its tale, giving you many options for how to go about solving the mystery. Should you strong-arm a suspicious stranger in the hallway? Be friendly to the hotel maid? Pretend to be interested in the manager's rambling stories? It's all up to you, but choose wisely. One false step could get you thrown out of the hotel and forever seal the mystery of what happened on that dark Christmas eve so many years ago.

Mycket text. Nästan lite för mycket. Annars snyggt levererat.

Hybrid Heaven  
Role-playing Games Nintendo 64 5.0 (1 votes)
"Hybrid Heaven" apparently derives its name from the different genres involved, including role-playing games (RPGs), action and fighting. This dynamic combination is most notable in the game's battle mode. Enter a room containing an enemy, and battle mode is activated, presenting you with action-interrupting onscreen choices to fight, defend or evade. Each of these choices has many associated sub choices, drilling down to the nth degree and, in effect, squashing the game's enjoyment value.
The story, conveyed in the game's painfully long opening cinematic sequence (and not found in the manual), features an American secret agent who walks around his apartment naked, and is then shot in a New York subway. Strangely, players take control of the shooter, guiding him through sparsely populated hallways in an underground facility that breeds human clones and other biological anomalies.
This game is slow and tedious, but may appease RPG fans who have been looking for some dodecahedron dice-rolling fun on their Nintendo 64. An expansion pack can be used for a higher resolution mode and a letter-boxed view. The game does have some merit, being a unique title and attempting to tackle a grandiose plot line, but in the end, "Hybrid Heaven" is a bit too convoluted. "--Jeff Young"
Pros: Interesting mix of game genres An odd, yet intricate storyline may have lost a bit of congruity in translation from Japanese Cons: Slow pace Strange interface Unexciting graphics

This is almost arcade perfect. The speed and enjoyment of this racer is almost unmached by today's racers STILL (BurnOut 3 & Revenge are in my mind the only better). A MUST HAVE for Dreamcast owners.
