Stop staring at the shiny tin foil for a second and direct your attention here. (this was written in 2008) About a month or so ago I got this idea to start doing a review from the SLI-Zone user perspective for each game I finish. My reasoning is that you guys have helped me so much that I feel I should give something back to community. Hopefully this will be helpful in making your game choices as I will do my best to note performance and quality. Since my sig is already to long I'm going to update this thread with a link to each review I do. Please do note that I will be playing each of these games on my own rig with the same setup. I think my rig is pretty comparable to the majority of the community so this seems fair. Most of the the games I play are FPS and racing games, but I do tend to play most of the popular games old and new. Please feel free to make suggestions as to the next game I play and help out with your thoughts in each review thread. [u][b]Ryme Reviews[/b][/u] 1.

You know, everyone keeps saying that and I might just have to break down and play it. I keep avoiding it because it's to cartoony for me, but you never know I might love it.

I just hope I get a chance to play it before all these "fall" release games come out. OMG Crysis, Far Cry 2, Half Life Ep3, and the list goes on and on and on. Gonna be an awesome fall/winter boys.

Thank you! Well I ended up staying up until 5:30am last night and finished Prey. I'm going to write the review right now, so expect it in an hour or so.

Whats up my fellow game addicts! Last night I finished STALKER - Shadow of Chernobyl around 3:00AM and am in the process of writing a wicked review for it. It should be done in the next few hours so check it out.

Yea cool...because I'm kinda wanting to check out this game. I wasn't terribly impressed with S.T.A.L.K.E.R. , I thought it was just OK.
