3.0 out of 5 stars Pushes FPS games further in some aspects...not there yet though, March 17, 2014
This review is from: Titanfall - Xbox One (Video Game)
Allow me to start off by saying this game is the reason I picked up an xbox one. While do not feel let down or disappointed by the final game, I do have some things to point out that might help if you're swaying on buying an X1 over this game. These are mostly the drawbacks as I do not need to re-iterate the thousands of people saying this game is a ton of fun! It's an absolute blast and I've enjoyed almost every minute of the 20 hours I've put into it so far!

The cons:
-This game is online only. Meaning that your enjoyment will depend on your internet connection/game servers. I have TWC Ultimate and I've frequently had the reconnecting to server message pop over my gameplay. During this time, you're still vulnerable and unable to move or do anything in-game. I've had several instances where it seemed to reconnect but left the game screen blurred over for another minute. So, I was able to control my guy again but the screen was darkened out and blurred as if the reconnection screen was still there. This problem was very frequent over the launch weekend. Could be worked out over time, but it's very frustrating, especially if you're in the heat of battle in your titan. I've also had the game load and start then take everyone back to the game lobby. Lost an Atlas Refurb burn card thanks to that -_-

-The campaign might as well not be there. It's a few cutscenes then a typical Attrition (death match) or Hardpoint Domination (control the zone) matches. It doesn't matter if you win or lose to further the story.

-If you're into achievements, there are some centered around the campaign but there's no way to track which missions you need to win for either faction.

-Game is kind of lacking in the content department for $60. You have 5 game modes (death match w/AI kills counting towards score (Attrition), death match with only player kills counting (Pilot Hunter), sudden death first to 4 wins death match with titans only (Last Titan Standing), capture the flag and domination spread across 15 maps. With such a meaningless campaign rolled in there, it's hard to count that as anything worthwhile.

-6vs6 match sizes. The maps are pretty expansive and often yield to you running around a bit, running into more AI controlled grunts or spectres than other players.

-Game currently runs at 792p and shoots for 60 frames/second. Respawn has said they intend to issue a patch that will up the res to 900 or 1080p. At its currently state, the game does see some frame rate dips occasionally, especially if there a lot of Titans in one place at a time. The 360 version will run at 720p and 30 frames/second. Use your judgment on if you feel like this is a game worth buying new hardware for. The game looks fantastic but I believe it will look just as fantastic on 360.

Even with all of the downsides, Titanfall is an extremely well made first person shooter. The game offers tons of fun and rarely has any dull moments, even with people who like to cloak and camp with the auto-lock pistol. While it may be a bit of a stretch at $60, it'll certainly rope you in with its addictive and fluid gameplay. Titanfall does not re-invent the first person shooter genre, but it certainly is a fresh new approach to it that hopefully begins to change other fps games for the better as well.

5.0 out of 5 stars If you're an avid pinball fan, this is the pinball experience you want, January 4, 2014
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
I've dabbled in these games a lot over the past few years and while there's this and Zen Pinball, if you're looking for a more realistic pinball experience, this game delivers. Several of these tables were childhood favorites of mine such as the Twilight Zone and the Arabian Nights tables so it's an absolute pleasure to see these tables re-created in such painstaking detail. If you're a fan of realistic pinball games, this is the perfect video game solution for your pinball needs!

3.0 out of 5 stars Interesting idea but there's better racers out there, April 27, 2012
= Fun:3.0 out of 5 stars 
This is the first Ridge Racer game I've ever actually played. It looked pretty interesting from the trailers so I decided to pick it up when a copy finally arrived at my local Best Buy 5 days after it was supposed to be out (Gamestop, Amazon and every other outlet seems to have also gotten the ps3 copies late). The game features destructible environment pieces scattered around the track that can either serve as shortcuts or means to wreck racers surrounding you. If that sounds familiar, it's because it totally is!

First of all, the game is rather frustrating at times. You start out with 1 car available to you and you stand no chance of catching up to any of the AI racers and will see yourself in the bottom 4 until you unlock 1 or 2 more cars. What keeps it from being an annoyingly frustrating game is that it's actually really fun to "frag" other racers. It doesn't really do much to help you overall since the lead car has probably already lapped you though. The biggest problem I seem to have is the controls.

I'm used to Hot Pursuit's excellent drifting controls. This game is much like Blur in the sense that it's much harder to control and often times just pointless. One minute you'll be just fun going to drift around a tight corner and the next you'll find yourself completely turned around (in other words, don't floor it after you drift into the wall and stop for a second). If that doesn't happen, you'll find yourself wrecking often. There's been several instances where I fill my boost/frag gauge up and go to smash through a building and my boost will end 2 ft before the wall and wreck. Also, no matter how much of a lead you think you have, if you wreck, you're going to end up at the end of the pack. You'll also frequently notice the AI rebuilding boost at an incredible rate. To fill your boost meter, you can go really fast, drift, catch a lot of air (it is possible to fill your boost meter from a long distance jump alone), or drafting. There are lots of other in-game perks to doing this stuff as well.

To keep you interested in the single player races, the game has a lot of in-game awards for random things you can do during a race. Things like jump distance, amount of racers fragged, number of objects destroyed, reaching ludicrous speed, and even drafting for long periods of time will net you awards which are the most effective way to earn XP early on since you won't exactly be placing 1st right off the bat. Outside of all of this stuff, the game also offers online multiplayer with a slight twist.

You have your standard racing modes but what's kinda cool about the online component in Unbounded is you can create your own city. It's a very basic track editor but you can create several events across it. What's also pretty cool is to publish it, you have to race on it and while doing so, you will earn xp and various awards. I found this method to be quite useful in not only netting myself some trophies but also leveling up a little faster. You can view and participate in other users cities as well and try to beat their times. It's a cool extra feature you don't see in a lot of racing games. But outside of that, the game really isn't anything super special that you haven't or can't find in another game and to top it off, the online community is almost non-existent and there is NO local split-screen multiplayer. So unless you have a friend with another ps3 and tv in the same room as you, you'll probably just be playing this by yourself.

Overall, this game is cool if you're used to racing games and are looking for a little more of a challenge. Everything this game does is something other games like Split/Second, Burnout: Paradise, Need for Speed: Hot Pursuit, Gran Turismo 5 and Blur do on a better scale. It's certainly not a horrible game by any means but without an online community and sketchy controls, it's hard to recommend it over the other games in the same genre that offer you more bang for your buck (and by now, at a cheaper price point).

5.0 out of 5 stars A Twisted Experience, February 16, 2012
= Fun:5.0 out of 5 stars 
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Twisted Metal (Video Game)
This is the 2nd game I've purchased this year, but is easily my most anticipated PS3 game release ever so my expectations for this game were ridiculously high. As of my writing of this review, it ALMOST lives up completely to my built up level of hype for it.

First of all, we'll start with a huge con to the game if you're not a hardcore fan of the series. This is NOT a racing a game so the control scheme is completely different than what you'd expect coming from something like ModNation Racers. It will take some adjusting to, but once you master the controls, it becomes second nature. There is a lot of stuff to learn to be successful at this game and it might take you a bit before you completely grasp the game and can go through the campaign on the hardest difficulty (which if you want to unlock a series favorite, Warthog, you NEED to not only beat it on twisted difficulty, but you have to get a gold medal on every chapter/boss fight in the campaign on said difficulty). So, this is not a game you can pick up and expect to be godly good at right off the bat...if you bought it for a single player experience that is. Online you might do pretty good.

First, let's talk about the vehicles. Each vehicle has its own strengths and weaknesses and a special move with an alt special. Alt specials usually require more than just pressing triangle and launching it. There's Meat Wagons piloted gurney bomb that does more damage than just launching a regular one but is controlled by you and can be shot if someone sees it coming and will explode if you hit a wall or traffic car or anything else that's not your intended target. There are more vehicle options available at the start of the single player campaign than online, but you're still pretty limited when you start.

The campaign is broken up into 3 different stories that intertwine with each other and for what it is, is actually rather enjoyable. There are races, "cage" matches which have you confined to a small area on the map and having to move to the next "cage" area while not using up all the time on your grace period meter, your standard death match and boss battles. It's definitely great practice for online as you'll start to learn the different strengths/weaknesses of each vehicle. Note that not all cars are unlocked from the start and will not be until you are almost finished with the campaign. Even still, there will be cars and sidearms that you need to go above and beyond just beating the campaign to unlock (like Warthog which requires you to not only beat the game on Twisted difficulty but obtain gold medals on Twisted difficulty as well). It feels like just the right length and is rather enjoyable and gives those who are obsessed with unlocking everything reason to master the campaign. The enemies will single you out though so be ready to kill everyone yourself. Race modes will not only see them trying to kill you, but people who have a magnetic weapon will frequently try to grab you and throw you backwards to keep you from winning a race (btw, races can become extremely annoying/frustrating and do feel very out of place). It's not overly long but will take a couple hours to finish. Single player modes also include a challenge mode and an endurance mode which is basically your survival mode.

Multiplayer is where this game absolutely shines as one of the best experiences available on the PS3. Before we get to online, let's get into your local split-screen modes. This game supports up to 4 player split screen. The available modes depend on how many players you have. If you're only playing 2 player, your options are either co-op play the campaign or death match. With 2 player split-screen, you can have bots in your death match games if you want. Add 1 or 2 more players, you get access to a wider variety of game modes (death match, hunted, last man standing and their team variants) but you can not play with bots. There is a wide range of customizable options for the games from weapon variety to health drop spawns. All cars that would be unlocked from a normal play through of the campaign are available here from the start and is a great place to at least try out the other cars that you may not have unlocked in single player just yet. If you're looking for a great game to play together with some friends over while enjoying some pizza, this is definitely a fun time and feels very nostalgic.

The only blemish on this game at the moment is the online multiplayer. WHEN IT WORKS, it is literally the best online experience I've ever had on my PS3. As of now, the matchmaking for this game is a mess though. I've spent about as much time trying to even get into a game lobby as I have playing in games. I've come to find that I'm more likely to get into a game through the quick-game option under the multiplayer option on the main menu. The only different is this one will find you a game based on either free-for-all, team modes, or objective mode (which should only really be Nuke) where as going to multiplayer will let you see a list of games (but will probably only lead to matchmaking error after matchmaking error). The only downside is that sometimes Nuke gets selected through team modes which it shouldn't be and you have no control over what kind of game you'll end up in (could be team death match, could be team hunter, could be team last man standing and in some cases, could be Nuke). Online offers the same that you can play split-screen if you're playing unranked games. In unranked lobbies you can customize the settings for the game to your liking and if you're wanting to only play with a bigger group of friends, you can password lock your lobby so only your friends can get in with the password. Ranked games obviously have locked settings but the game creator can chose the map. When you start playing online, you're limited to 3 vehicles (Kamikaze, Outlaw and Death Warrant). There are different Tiers in which you can unlock vehicles and a separate system for side-arms and kill streak rewards (I think they auto-award health or a random weapon for kills?). You have to unlock everything in each Tier for the next tier to become unlockable. This is actually kind of annoying because depending on your play style, the unlocks it forces you to waste on other stuff in tier 1 is absolutely useless. The most vehicles are unlockable in tier 1 but guys like Reaper, Shadow, Sweet Tooth and Juggernaut are 2 or 3. I believe Warthog is auto-unlocked for online play if you have him unlocked in single player but I'm not sure on that yet. Another issue you'll frequently run into is people who are in charge of a lobby often do not pay attention so even if you have the required minimum number of guys to start a game, whoever is in charge of the lobby may not see that and still not start for a few more mins. It's annoying, especially when you have 10 of the 14 you need for a full game. You do get XP from various things you do online (kills, killstreaks, best player, best player on team, playing objectives, etc.) but it's just a very basic ranking up system with no medals or anything like that. The only real benefit to ranking up is unlocking new vehicles/sidearms.

The other problem I have with online is Nuke. The mode itself is a brilliant idea and I was really excited to play it. Problem being and this is only my theory, but with matchmaking seemingly lumping it in with team modes, players end up in it and play it like death match or last man standing and don't play it well as a team. The concept is there and when played right, it works amazingly and is a ton of fun. But when your team mates are only playing to kill the other team and you're the only one capturing a faction leader and need to rely on your teammates who are probably all dead to help keep the other team from killing you before you launch a nuke, it is a nightmare.

Visually, this game isn't the best looking ps3 game, but I've never seen a problem with the frame rate dropping even with the amount of chaos going on at a given time from rockets whizzing past you into a crazy intense firefight with people destroying houses and running over civilians left and right. There are times where you might find yourself stuck somewhere but a quick boost and a jump and you're usually free. It by no means is a bad looking game.

The controls for this game can be seen as a weakness, and will take some adjusting to if you haven't played a TM game since Black. There are alternate layouts you can use but once you get the hang of the classic layout, you won't want to play the game any other way. Controls do differ if you're playing as Talon (helicopter) or flying as Sweet Tooth and are pretty straight forward.

Overall, this game is just over the top fun. Any fan of the series will enjoy it and while it might take a while to feel like you've mastered the game, it's a satisfying feeling to finally see that gold medal after just barely finishing a chapter in the campaign. They are working on fixing the matchmaking issues, but as of now, those are the only major complaint I have about this game. I bought it for the mp experience and once you get into a game, it's absolutely intense and a ton of fun. Definitely one of the most worthwhile purchases I've made this year, and this console gen to be honest.

Note that if you're a trophy hunter, this game will take a long time to plat between having some hard trophies and needing to win 1 ranked game everyday for 30 days in a row which can be hindered by the major connections issues currently plaguing this game. Hopefully that will be remedied soon and that won't be an issue :)

2.0 out of 5 stars Maybe it should have been kept in the Darkness, February 10, 2012
= Fun:3.0 out of 5 stars 
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
I had every intention of adding this to my backlog of stuff to play, but since my Jak & Daxter Collection came really late and I don't wanna start anything else til Twisted Metal, I ended up popping this in when I got it. Now, it's not a horrible game by any means, but it's not very good.

First of all, I have the PS3 version. The game takes a couple seconds to load up and a minute or 2 to load trophies and settings because I don't think it installs anything to the hdd. Some of the loading times are actually kinda long. Not Rage long but still a little long none the less.

My biggest complaint about the game is the lack of variety. All levels play almost the same (there's a few that are basically on rails or walk over here, walk there, run from these guys and escape and 10 minutes later you're onto the next chapter) and are basically fighting your way from point a to point b to get to fight this guy at point c. You do get to control the Darkling, but it's twice and both sections feel quite limited. The enemies do change every other level or so and as you progress through the game and become more powerful, the enemy types also seem to become more tedious. This isn't a bad thing, but they just keep coming and coming. You'll find yourself clearing out an area then walking around the corner and doing the same exact thing. This is how almost every level has panned out. Sometimes you have to chase down a boss...but on your way to chasing down that boss you have to clear out more open areas of enemies! Needless to say, after a few chapters it gets tedious and far too repetitive. Shoot out lights (whether they be hanging above you or worn by random bad dudes), blow up generators, kill 41 baddies, turn around and run to beginning of level through more baddies, possibly a burning building, and hop in your casually-waiting-for-your-return limo or it'll just fade and next thing you know, you're somewhere else. The fact that the campaign is really short really amplifies that repetitive feeling.

I hadn't finished the campaign at the time of writing this, but now that I have, I was correct in assuming what I had left to finish was nothing more than kill wave after wave of bad guys and fight the main villain...and end up in Hell but that's only if you chose one of the options closer to the end. Also, I started on the hardest difficulty and I died only a handful of times and still finished the campaign in a little over 5 hours. So, with a really short and super repetitive campaign, you're probably wondering "well...what else can this game offer then?" and well...the game does have a few tiny bits you can replay.

After you complete the campaign, you can play it again in new game + mode (which honestly, unless you're a trophy/achievement hunter, you won't want to) which will carry over your upgrades and relics so you can find the remaining ones and try to max out all of your upgrades and get a shiny trophy for completing the game again (which if you're like me, you just changed the difficulty to easy after beating it on Don and finished this play through in under 5 hours). But if the campaign isn't to your liking, then you'll be even more disappointed when you hop into the Vendetta's campaign. These missions can be played either with friends online or by yourself. They run alongside the main story and are kinda meant as a behind the scenes/this is what's going on while you were killing more of these guys in the campaign. But if you didn't really pay much attention to the story (and I wouldn't blame you), then these will feel like more of the same. They're cool if you only play 1 mission as each of the characters that it lets you chose from for these missions, but then you'll realize that you're doing the same exact thing you were doing in the campaign and become bored with it pretty quickly. Luckily, the Vendetta's campaign is maybe an hour long so at least it feels like the right amount of time for what it is. It's not overly difficult and there are gratuitous amounts of ammo boxes laying around so you will never find yourself without enough ammo for the dozens of dudes you'll encounter.

Overall, the game isn't horrible but it's just not very fun. There isn't a huge variety of execution animations so you'll grow tired of them rather quickly and the game doesn't really offer any variety of missions in the chapters to really hold your interest for much more than an hour. The co-op missions are just as tedious, but will appeal to anyone who does find themselves really into the story. I'd suggest giving it a rental but with other games on the market that offer a far superior experience and more bang for your hard earned buck, definitely don't waste your time on this one unless you're a hardcore fan of the comics. If you do feel like it's a game you must own, don't shell out more than 20 bucks for it because the lack of content or variety in gameplay is a real downer and will bore you pretty quickly if you're not a fan of the comics.

Please note that I am not familiar with the universe of The Darkness and am merely a gamer posting my review based on my experience with the game.

4.0 out of 5 stars It's not Hot Pursuit, but it's still fun!, November 16, 2011
= Fun:4.0 out of 5 stars 
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
Black Box is not Criteron Games, so I wasn't expecting anything nearly as good as Hot Pursuit. With that being said, I haven't been disappointed yet. The tracks all look amazing as do the cars. Yes, some of them are hard to handle but if you're having a hard time, just use a car with normal handling and you'll be ok. But there is great reward in mastering tracks with cars that are harder to handle as you'll take seconds off your lap time as you sacrifice easier handling for speed. There is a lot of rubber banding AI though. There's been several races that I've been on the final stretch, saw someone coming in behind me and I punch the nitro and they still fly right past me and beat me by a split second...and I started it on easy just so I could familiarize myself with the tracks. The cops in this game are more annoying than they are fun like in Hot Pursuit too. I can't count how many times so far that I'd go to drift around a turn only to be super human rammed by some cop and go flying right off a cliff or the path.

Speaking of that, the game also seems to have a problem with you being off of the beaten path. If it's not a shortcut or the actual road, the game will make you rewind (an annoying feature added that takes you back to your last checkpoint). It's a nice feature for when you wreck but more often than not, you're going to be seeing it because your car was slightly just past the cones or you were bumped through the yellow turn there arrows because they aren't an invisible wall in this game. My favorite so far has been getting a ton of air from a jump that I think I bounced off a tanker truck and then somehow I wrecked before I even hit the ground (and it would have been a perfect landing!). Bottom line is this game could have a lot of epic and cool moments but it prevents itself from ever allowing it. I'm also not a fan of a "story" mode in my racing games.

This game does have a rather interesting story, but it seems like it doesn't know how to go about it. Any rival races are introduced to you as text on the loading screen and that's all. But then you randomly have these poor looking cutscenes, and by poor I mean a lot of shading pixels around Jack (the guy you're racing as) and the frame rate often stutters a lot during them. On top of not being very visually pleasing, they tend to have some quick time events in there. There is nothing worse than quick time events. But the concept of racing across the US actually does work in the games favor by having a very wide and very nice variety of tracks. And while the story mode is rather short, there's good reason.

The game seems more focused on competing with friends (which hopefully you're not like me and actually have friends who did buy this game hah) so while yes, the story is fairly short, it's also to encourage you to replay it to surpass a friends autolog completion time for the campaign. But if you're not one to car for competition, then there are a good amount of challenge modes that unlock as you complete each stage in the campaign. You'll find yourself trying to better your lap times as you try to attain platinum medals for your efforts in these challenges. There are online modes, which seem to have a focus on working as a team but as i mentioned earlier, I don't currently have any psn friends who have this game yet. Hopefully after black friday that will be remedied but for now, I haven't had a chance to play online just yet.

All in all, the game is actually a lot of fun. The bugs in the game are in the parts that no one should really care about and the cars all handle well. It takes some getting used to since again, this isn't Hot Pursuit and the controls don't feel as great at first but with the right car, you'll have little to no problems drifting around tight corners. The asking price does seem a little steep so maybe wait til you can get it cheaper, but by all means this game offers quite a bit to do as long as you have friends to compete with.

4.0 out of 5 stars Borderlands meets Left 4 Dead!, September 7, 2011
= Fun:4.0 out of 5 stars 
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
I've only had 2 hours put into this so far but I can already tell this is going to be one of my favorite games this year.

First of all, if you're buying this game because you liked the tacked on afterthought zombie mode in any of those overrated Call of Duty games, you're going to be majorly disappointed. The whole point of this game is survival on a zombie infested island, not to fight off hordes of zombies from a house. If you enjoyed Borderlands or like games where you have to do quests, loot and kill zombies, this will surely be one of your best purchases this year.

The graphics in this game aren't going to win any awards, but that's not to say they're horrible in any way. The landscape has a lot of pop in textures at times. The physics are kind of hit and miss as well since you can kick through solid things to hit zombies/they can run at you through things but the items never budge (usually an umbrella and sometimes a fence). I was also disappointed to find that throwing a knife at a throwable propane tank didn't blow it up. But never fear, for if you have a gun and find a propane tank, throw it and shoot it to burninate any zombies around it.

As with Left 4 Dead and Borderlands, this game is best played co-op. As you do quests, many of the zombies you encounter may be a bit too much for just 1 person. It's doable, but know that if you die, you lose 10% of your cash. Sadly, split-screen isn't supported so you do need 3 psn/xbla friends who all have the game online to play with them.

The story in this game takes a backseat for those just wanting to get to slaying the undead. You can skip every cutscene and not feel like you're missing anything, or really care. The dialogue in this game is pretty stereotypical anyways so unless you like hearing f this, f that, jc this, jfc that, skipping every cutscene and dialogue will become second nature pretty quickly.

There are tons of weapons scattered through the game but this game has a very heavy focus on melee weapons so you're going to find a large supply of paddles, bats, pipes, knives, brass knuckles, wrenches, etc. Guns are pretty scarce in this game but with the ability to run around kicking the snot out of zombies, it feels ok. Health packs are scarce as well however energy drinks replenish your health and seem to always be near by in areas you'd need them the most. You can't inventory them however so unless you really need them, just leave them for later in case you need them. You're going to do a ton of backtracking/exploring in this game and you're able to drive vehicles after a few quests. You eventually are able to modify weapons after obtaining blueprints/mod abilities to create things like a baseball bat with nails sticking out of it or an electric paddle. Don't put too much money into your weapons though as you're likely to constantly be finding something better. You can carry 4 weapons at first but unlock more slots as you progress and you can swap out your inventory at any time. You have to pull up your weapon wheel to select your current weapon rather than hitting triangle or Y. Also, like the first fear game, your flashlight battery depletes so conserve your flashlight for the pitch black areas only. You can find batteries laying around but they aren't too common.

Each character has their own specialty. One is good with ranged weapons, the other melee, another with guns and another with short ranged weapons. There isn't much to differentiate them outside of the skill tree. Like Borderlands, your character has 3 trees of ability upgrades. As you level up, you get ability points to use on these that do things like increase your accuracy, increase critical hit damage/chances, decrease the amount of money needed to repair weapons, etc.

All in all, this game offers a whole lot of content and a rather large island to explore. With a group of friends, you'll have no trouble sinking hours upon hours into this game as you loot and lay waste to the undead. Any zombie slaying fanatic will love this game.

Note that this review is based on the PS3 version of the game.

1.0 out of 5 stars An interesting idea but poorly executed, August 15, 2010
= Fun:1.0 out of 5 stars 
I, for one, was looking forward to this game. However, as its release date drew near, there existed no gameplay videos or anything outside of some very cool looking execution trailers and a few video spoofs. The game sounded interesting this way but once I finally got my hands on it, I was insanely disappointed with what I saw.

This game is an absolute mess. The framerate begins hiccuping if there's more than 1 bear anywhere around you (so good luck if you've got a small crowd that you're wanting to sneak up on). The controls feel very broken as well as I found myself fighting to get the camera view the way I wanted it more often than not. The game forces you to play the side-missions to unlock the rest of the story missions (if you really even wanna get into it...and you probably won't). All in all, this game seems like more time was spent making the cool looking trailers for it than actually being worked on. Do not pay over 10 dollars for this game. This should have just been an Xbox Live Arcade/Playstation Network release. It's insanely mediocre and nothing special in any way.

5.0 out of 5 stars TNA's best documentary yet, October 31, 2006
Sting: Return of an Icon is exactly what it says it is. This DVD features a great deal of Stings matches since returning to TNA. From his Final Resolution match, to Lethal Lockdown, to his classic iMPACT! battle with Scott Steier, to his win at Victory Road to become the #1 contender again to lead to Bound for Glory (which of coarse is not on here). Highlights are shown from the King of the Mountain match at Slammiversary. TNA went above and beyond my expectations. They definatly include Stings best performances in TNA. They do a nice interview with sting after a few hours of his in-ring footage. Sting swears that he will do everything in his power to make TNA a threat to the WWE, and I know I'm not the only one who hopes that is indeed what happens. Definatly worth every cent.
