The Mortal Kombat games never had the depth of Street Fighter but they were a lot of fun The only problem was they changed the way they played in the new ones but this games looks like it has gone back to Mortal Kombat 3 which was the best one

Mortal kombat for me was always vastly superior to street fighter. I fucking hate the charge moves and street fighter always seemed like a slow cluster fuck where the noob could always win. Mortal kombat had insane depth as long as you don't suck.

Anyways, being off another two weeks I have been buying gamecube games to play and replay on my wii. Ordered f zero gx and goingnto rebut Mario sunshine as my old gamecube was stolen at uni. I loved mario sunshine.

Don't buy F-Zero GX it lulls you in with is being one of the best racing games ever and then beats you into submission with its difficulty

It is a fantastic game but after trying for so very long to finish all of the story missions on hard/very hard I never want to play it again

it was just nothing special, they didnt really do anything that hadnt been done a hundred times before, except make the computer needlessly nooby at times

My girlfriend installed a trial version of World Of Warcraft on my computer, it's quite a good game, but nothing catching more than Guild Wars, and as Guild Wars is free, I shall resume that.

Thought it was about time to find out what all the fuss was about for Assassins Creed. I'm about halfway through the first one, even though it's rough round the edges and fairly repetitive I'm really enjoying it. Got number 2 to start on once I finish it, which I understand is a lot better

FUCKING SUCK!!!!

I found 2 lost some of the atmosphere, but its far far less repetitive than the 1st one and the story is a lot longer.

EDIT: Though don't get me wrong, I am a HUGE fan of both games. They're both excellent.

2 is way, way better. Perhaps 2 does lose some of the atmosphere. But from a playing perspective its vastly superior.
