July saw a steady share of excellent games as well as a few movie based bombs. Generally summer is a drought for good gaming, but 2009 seems to confound that logic. Here is a look at what we reviewed for the month of July.
July’s reviews spanned all genres from 2D fighters two wild west shooters. A lot of the games that were reviewed turned out to be quite entertaining. The big winners this month were [shal]BlazBlue[/shal], [shal]Red Faction: Guerrilla[/shal], [shal]Battlefield 1943[/shal], and [shal]Shatter[/shal].
As for the lemons, Guitar Hero: Smash Hits left us feeling a sense of déjà vu and [shal]Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen[/shal] was, not surprisingly, a bad game based on a movie.
First a quick recap of this years best games.
