Questions of robot rights and dystopian ethics don’t often hit as hard as they do in Freedom Wars, though once they do core combat gameplay loops should have you enslaved.

PAC-MAN and the Ghostly Adventur Review
Is the entire Ghostly Adventures series, including the TV show, a prequel to the rest of Pac-Man’s life? Because in my childhood I seem to remember Pac having a girlfriend and a kid, not worrying about Pac-puberty.

Counter Strike on the Xbox is not like what it seems...
 
 
Counter Strike for the Xbox is just like the PC version right? So if you have fun playing the PC version what's your problem if you play the Xbox version.
Counter Strike has the same action, game play and decent graphics, every thing is the same.
 
 
 
Here where my point comes in, Counter Strike on the PC requires so many hassles, time and patients and most in importantly money. I have played Counter Strike on the PC for over three years and I never had CS in my house. Wouldn't CS be a nice game if it's in your own home?
 
 
 
To get Counter Strike on the own computer requires upgrading the whole computer to the minimum requirements to install Counter Strike. Which cost money right, upgrading computers is very costly and expensive which younger teenagers can't afford. You may go to the store and see CS for $24.99 for example but you don't know that there are big hidden fees you have to pay which is for your computer. Then the game takes up some much space on the hard drive and soon as you log in, the msn wouldn't come up for like five hours.
 
 
 
Also if you have one computer to have to share it with your family, given you less time to play, because they want to go on the computer them-self’s and they have there stuff on the computer which makes it slower then ever which means more loading time.
My bottom line is Counter Strike on the PC is very costly and rare to play; you have to be rich to have your own computer with the upgrades to actually play Counter Strike in your own home.
 
 
 
Counter Strike requires so many resources, so young teens like me can't afford to play it so often. Only guys who are working full time jobs can afford playing counter strike. And that's the reason why Counter Strike is so often played at internet cafes; I have to the internet cafe and play CS for about $1.00 per half hour.
People go to the internet cafe to play counter strike to avoid those hassles. Internet cafe owners make more money on Counter Strike they any other game, that's the reason why most places have CS for all or most of there computers.
 
 
 
Counter Strike for the Xbox has excellent controls, very cheap having no upgrades needed and not that much hassle and as well as your family not tormenting you for the computer. Counter Strike for the Xbox is just like the PC version, except you save allot of resources. Xbox CS may not give you much opportunity when it comes to outfits and other stuff but it still CS and it's still highly addictive.
 
 
 
Counter Strike is one for the collection, and for all those noobs out there you want to play CS at home with out hassles or fees, try CS for Xbox, I wouldn't disappoint you. Now it's selling for $12 bucks at future shop with no hidden computer fees except the online mode. But it will be wroth it.  
-Gameplay
.
The Counter Strike is the same, and i know the developers have been promising before it came out that it would be alot better and they lied. But still CS is still wicked on the Xbox but the physics are alot different. (AK-47 is the best gun in the game, take it from me) The fire fights and the action is the same.
.
Mark for Gameplay: B
.
- Graphics
.
The Graphics are not horrible or excellent, to be honest with you I am not to sure on this case.
.
Mark for Graphics: B
.
-Sound
.
The sounds are orginal for the guns, and i can't really compair them to other sounds, but it is realistic enough.
.
Mark for Sound: B-
.
-Entertainment and Life Span
.
Counter Strike is a really highly addictive game the first few weeks or so, but then it gets boring but its worth your while when it comes to the price, its the cheapest Xbox game in the store, like regular price is like at most $12 bucks so wroth it.
.
Mark for Entertainment and Life Span: B-
.
