With all of the new games coming out, I thought I'd start a series of blogs where I pick a few games and decide whether I'm going to rent or buy each of them. My decisions are obviously based off of collective reviews, and this is kind of a quick way to pass on this knowledge. Of the "rentals" I will list, I also plan to do a follow up blog for each one.

RENT:

Mirror's Edge



It's fresh, innovative games such as Mirrors Edge that make me happy to be a gamer. The market is so crowded with gunplay that the idea of avoiding combat as much as possible seems like a great breath of fresh air to me. I first got a taste of Mirrorís Edge when the demo was released on 360 and PS3, and I have to say that I am eager to experience all this game has to offer. From what Iíve read, Mirrorís Edge isnít a terribly long game, so Iíll probably be able to plow through it in about a week.

Far Cry 2



Iíve heard that Far Cry 2 is a great game, but there are also some serious annoyances such as weapon degradation, constantly having to heal yourself because youíve become infected with malaria, and long trips in vehicles that have to be repeated if you die. Sounds like a kind of game that I wouldnít want to play over and over again, so Iím sure a rental will do just fine.

BUY:

Call of Duty: World at War



Following up one of the greatest console first-person shooters of all time is World at War. Itís not too different from CoD4 besides the fact that itís set in World War 2, but thatís not a bad thing. Not a bad thing at all. CoD4 veterans may want to rent it for the co-op campaign and never touch it again, but for the people who want to go online take the time to level up and customize to their heartís content, itís definitely a buy.
