Tomb Raider: Underworld (2008)

My 1st time playing a Tomb Raider beyond a demo of TR1 many years ago. Actually enjoyed it, 3rd person and all. Fun exploration and fighting wasn't bad. Story a bit more unworldly (even beyond Indiana Jones style) than I expected. Makes me want to try the other more recent TR games but will probably wait until the Castaway style reboot I've read about.

Alpha Prime (2007)

Nabbed this for $5 or less on steam. Character models reminded me or Shogo (Ohhhh to have another mecha + on foot game). Decent enough for the price and being a small studio. Nice mix of indoor/outdoor and OK story...and I actually played it to completion!

Red Faction: Guerrilla (2009)

Give up on posting long comments for the most part. Fun game. Reminds me of Total Recall. Enjoyed the environmental damage and running people over or smashing buildings, but couldn't keep playing. 3rd person just felt off too me. Still a good Target secret shelf or steam sale game.
