System Requirements Need for Speed: Shift - Intel Core 2 Duo, 1.5 GB RAM, 6 GB free space, nVIDIA GeForce 7600 or above (GTX 200 recommended), DX 9 or above
Need for Speed: Shift is just about madness. After the Most Wanted Edition, this is the only game people liked, otherwise the Carbon, ProStreet, etc. just went like flop. The race madness was just continued in this game. Here, you need to just have a good racing wheel and then you are on the top. The madness is just about new cars launched in the game.
With the previous editions, the gamers were just bored off of cars like Ferrari, BMWs, and what not but this time, with the new innovation, the new cars have brought once again the real liveliness in the game. New cars like Bugatti Veyron have just turned the climax of racing games. It is just the perfect piece of mad race drivers (of course at home). It is the thirteenth baby of the NFS family.
Pros - New cars, more excitement, better gameplay and physics.
Cons - Extremely large in size, High system requirements, same old trends like cop chases etc., nothing too new in the storyline.
Need for Speed: Most Wanted

Publisher of Need for Speed: Most Wanted - Electronic Arts
System Requirements Need for Speed: Most Wanted - 1.4 GHz processor, 256 RAM, DX 9 or above, Radeon 7500 or better.
This, Need for Speed: Most Wanted is considered to be the most successful games of the clan known as Need for Speed. It was just that game which brought the family once again on the tracks. The gamers went howling to this game and even, in the NFS family, there is no baby which can match this son. The story was just excellent, as said by the gamers.
The cop chase was just modified and made too nice. New cars and all that excitement was what the gamers wanted, getting bored of all those bad physics of Hot Pursuit II, and over reaction. The gamers just wanted to get some new tracks, a new storyline. The Blacklist 15 thing went just fantastic and it was what exactly the gamers were waiting since ever. Even today, it is considered to be the best of NFS family. It was the ninth baby born in the NFS family.
Pros - Excellent storyline, gameplay, visual effects
Cons - Almost nothing.
Prince of Persia: The Two Thrones
Developer Prince of Persia: The Two Thrones - Ubisoft Montreal
Publisher Prince of Persia: The Two Thrones - Ubisoft
System Requirements Prince of Persia: The Two Thrones - 1.4 GHz processor, 512 MB RAM, nVIDIA 7600 or above, DX 9 or above.
Prince of Persia: The Two Thrones is considered to one of those games which can make you cry. The storyline is what makes you go so mad about it. You cannot resist how bad situations the prince had to suffer, her love being killed in front of her eyes, the Vizier still roaming around. This was what made the people have agreed for demanding a new movie based on this storyline.
The storyline of this game was just immensely nice. However, the need for a okay okay type graphics card was what made it reach only to the high end gaming PCs. However, even on the low settings it worked quite fine. Those fights, stunts and the feeling of being a real price were just too good. Though been an old game today, it is remembered among those who had their hands on it.
Pros - Filmy Story, nice visual effects.
Cons - Very easy gameplay, no tough work needed, the prince knows how to jump and how to climb. At times, the story gets boring just of killing so many enemies so easily.
Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas
Developer Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas - Rockstar North
Publisher Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas - Rockstar Games
System Requirements Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas - 1 GHz processor, 256 MB RAM, 64 MB DX 9 compatible video Card
Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas, just for funks. A mixture of FPS and Racing, this game is just full too fun. Go on the street, kill anyone, throw away any driver out of the car, shoot him up, and enjoy driving his car. So many cars, so much enjoyment, and the option to do almost everything was what makes it a live game.
It is one of its kind which allows you to do whatever you wanted. Go around with girls, flirt with them, drive, shoot and everything possible in a game. The gameplay was just too nice and it is also known as Vice City.
Pros - Nice Story, you get to play a racing game and a FPS in the single game.
Cons - Nothing that way.
I.G.I. - 2: Covert Strike
Developer I.G.I.-2: Covert Strike - Innerloop Studios
Publisher I.G.I.-2: Covert Strike - Codemasters
System Requirements I.G.I.-2: Covert Strike - 128 MB RAM, 700 MHz processor
I.G.I.-2: Covert Strike is among those games which make you feel you are the real soldiers. The story was like ordinary games, the FPS ones but then you get the feeling of a real tough guy. The game is too difficult when compared to games like Hitman etc. Though the story was not too odd, but it impressed the gamers with the challenging toughness it provided.
Having a number of stages, this game revolves around eliminating the mafias, the wrong people and revolves around Jones and his friend Jack Priboi. The game is the second version of the thing they call I.G.I. The game was awesome when it comes to professional soldier experience. You can crawl, run, snatch, sniper shoot, bomb and do almost anything. The maps are quite big and you got to eliminate many enemies before you can actually crawl to success. Every stage, even the starting one is time taking and tough, however, there are still walkthroughs available on the net, which is not good to use.
Pros - Nice toughness, the real warrior experience, very low system requirements.
Cons - Bad graphics, no excellent / outstanding storyline.
Hitman: Blood Money
Developer Hitman: Blood Money - IO Interactive
Publisher Hitman: Blood Money - Eidos Interactive
System Requirements Hitman: Blood Money - Intel 1.5 GHz processor, 512 MB RAM, DX 9 Compatible video card, preferably nVIDIA 7600GT, DVD Drive, 5 GB HDD Space
The game is all about madness which lies in taking money, killing people, being emotional and so on. The game is the fourth part of the Hitman clan. Before this three other sequences have also been released. The story revolves around the professional contract killer, Mr. Agent 47 who possesses expertise in killing. He just does it perfectly. The game starts from a scene where you are near to some sort of water, and then you go on killing killing and killing in the game. The game is all about professionalism in killing and if you do it, you should be perfect in your work. Without perfection, do not even think of completing this game.
The game is too different from other FPS games, moreover, it is not a FPS, but a TPS, third person shooter game where you need to concentrate upon money too. However, that is just a part of the story, you do not have too much accessibility to take the money thing.
Pros - A true killer feeling it gives, good storyline.
Cons - Runs very badly in low system configuration, gives low FPS. The storyline seems to go boring at times.
Race Driver: Grid
Developer Race Driver: Grid - Codemasters
Publisher Race Driver: Grid - Codemasters
System Requirements Race Driver: Grid - Intel Core 2 Duo Processor, 1.5 GB RAM, Nvidia GeForce 8800 or above, DX 9 compatible sound card, 12 GB HDD space
If you are just bored off of those cop chases of the NFS field, those boring races, then run down on the ground of what racers say – professional racing. Grid has all you want if you do not hesitate to spend some time gaming. It is a bit time taking because here, you do not have those easy brakes, easy accelerations but all you have is the real physics embedded in the game script. You cannot overcome. It's too much practical. Your cars will get scratches, and you will feel the real heat of the tracks.
Gamers advice that one should use shock renderer steering wheels to play this game because it deserves it. Though it is a bit too bulgy, namely requires 12 GB of HDD space but you will not regret reserving that space for the game, once you experience it, it is just too different from other games like NFS and Trackmania etc.
Pros - Excellent Physics, nice gameplay.
Cons - Too bulgy in size, High system requirements
Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2
Developer Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 - Infinity Ward
Publisher Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 - Activision Square Enix
System Requirements Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 - Intel Core 2 Duo, 512 MB RAM, 16 GB HDD Space, Nvidia 6600 GT or above, DX 9 compliant card.
If you want to have to enjoyment of both the genres, that is, the First Person Shooting or the Third Person Shooting, then Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 is just the perfect piece for you. It gives you the real eliminator experience; you go off on the grounds, eliminate terrorists, drive vehicles, shoot, have a team, play with them and just finish the blood.
Not much can be said about the game because it is just the perfect piece, you cannot complain regarding the gameplay, however, the native resolution of the game is just 600p which is a bit complain able. However, it is always the game play what matters, so that is perfect. Go, terrorists are waiting for you.
Pros - Gameplay, Storyline
Cons - Needs a lot of HDD space, high system requirements
