Transformers: War For Cybertron is set in a time long before the one in the cartoon series. It tells an origin story that Transformers fans may not know. I liked that the game is in the third person, which is a nice break from all the first-person games that are so popular now...More »
With fictional teams and a limited playbook, Backbreaker certainly wasn't perfect.
But with the upcoming update--codename: Greathouse--Backbreaker takes some big time strides towards being, well, if not perfection, then a few steps closer to greatness.

Each day I get so much awesome stuff in the mail. I get builds of games--games that you won't be playing for a few weeks or even months from now--delivered right to my desk. Yes, everyday is Christmas for the Sports Gamer.
At least, it usually is.
Things have been kind of slow around the Sports Gamer office lately. It's the summer doldrums. Happens every year. Yeah, I know the new Madden is just around the corner. In the meantime, until Madden ships, I've been spending time with some older, awesome sports games. Both games are worth revisiting.More »
In case you missed the Sports Gamer's announcement a few weeks back, NBA 2K11 is putting Michael Jordan on the box cover of this year's game instead of a current NBA super star. We're excited. You're excited. But is Jordan just box-cover eye-candy? The short answer is: Nope.
2K Sports recently revealed an all-new gameplay mode called the Jordan Challenge mode. This mode lets you step into the Air Jordans/high-tops of "His Royal Airness" as you get to replay 10 of M.J.'s most legendary games.

NCAA Football 11 is the latest and, if I must say, the greatest installment in this long-running series. There is not a single aspect of this game that is surpassed by the versions that came before it. First, the Dynasty Mode is much improved. It is divided into three parts: Off-season, the season itself, and after season. During the off-season, you can recruit new talent, convince players to come back, and much more. Now, the actual season is much like all others: You play the games and try to come out of it with a run at the national title. This also holds true for after the season, when you sign new coaches. Although these modes are similar to those in previous games, they are much more in-depth, which ultimately makes the game more fun.More »
When the Sports Gamer eats in all of his fancy restaurants with his fancy, sports-game-loving friends, like Professor Ulane, we usually order ourselves appetizers to gorge ourselves on until our 42-ounce sirloins arrive.
A mere six days from now, Madden fans everywhere are getting an appetizer before their main course. Of course, I'm referring to the Madden NFL 11 demo, which you can download for $0, via Xbox Live and PlayStation Network starting on July 27th.More »
Lego Harry Potter Years 1-4 is hands down the best Lego game created to date. Those familiar with Lego games would expect to find a pretty good game that mostly caters to younger audiences. But not this one! Although it is not super hard, the game does provide a challenge. I had a tough time with certain parts.
The length of the game is very good, and it is quite amazing to experience the depth that Lego Harry Potter gets into. The world of Harry Potter is evident in every aspect of this game. For example, in Diagon Alley, you can replay levels and buy new characters. Plus, during the main levels, you can take a class to learn a new spell or create a new potion to make a character stronger.More »
