The Bureau: XCOM Declassified - Xbox 360

An awesome concept, interesting setting and use of contrast can’t save The Bureau from technical shortcomings.

I play a lot of shooters and love sci-fi so this game was right up my alley. The combat mechanics is heavily influenced by the first Mass Effect game, which to me is only a positive thing. Being a shooter and not an RTS 'The Bureau' is somewhat more linear than 'Enemy Unknown'. However there's a nice variety of combat settings and the gameplay is a lot of fun if you like something a bit more tactical than your average TPS. It also has some RPG elements in the way you can level-up your team.

RECENT CGR COMMUNITY REVIEWS

 Borderlands 2 - Xbox 360
"I'm not normally into the loot grab, unless it's Diablo 2 or, in this case, Borderlands 2. I've put 400 hours into this game and though I be be close to done with it at this point, it was an amazing experience. To get the most our of this game, you need to play it with friends, as trading loot with friends makes the trading element a lot more addictive. Certain combat moments can become truly memorable. Most of the expansion packs were truly worthy additions, as well." - drockus

 Donkey Kong Land 2 - Game Boy
"It's a fun game to bring with you but it's basically a DKC2 port and doesn't try to be its own game like its predecessor." - nukea6

 Super Mario Kart - Super Nintendo
"For me, this is tied with Double Dash as my favorite Mario Kart experience, I think because they both emphasize strategy over luck. Mario 64 had great courses, but the rubber-banding and luck factor was inexcusable. Also, SNES MK had the best battle mode by far." - drockus

 Illusion of Gaia - Super Nintendo
"I feel like making a provocative statement: This game is better than A Link to the Past. Its variety and quality of locale, music, and action are simply amazing. If you haven't played this yet, do so. I was very surprised to see no CGR or user reviews for this. What the heck? Beating monsters to death with a flute isn't good enough?" - drockus
