Review of the Week, 29 April-5 May 2012

First Place

Suskie's Prototype 2 review (Xbox 360)

A review so good and necessary for this new release in today's world of ceaseless hype that it caught Facebook traffic. A review putting, keeping and/or vindicating the 'honest' in honestgamers.

Second Place

zippdementia's ActRaiser review (SNES)

Initially I was thinking "This review is getting indulgent on the music," but as you proceed through the whole piece it becomes clearer that the music was sufficiently big of a deal relative to the klunkiness zipp argues up in other areas that it may be worth exalting. There are also some good barbs and an interesting assessment of how the game has travelled over the years.

Third place

pickhut's Wolf Fang review (Sega Saturn)

This review is inspiring in reminding us that now and then you can find a supergem while trawling around amongst old and obscure games. It's also a review where I would have particularly enjoyed a screenshot or two, as the descriptions of hectic adventures and explosions are both vivid and dense, and I had to read them a couple of times to unpack it all.

Thanks for the kind words, Bloomer, and for bringing the Facebook feedback to my attention as well. I never catch those comments.

Kudos to Zipp and Pickhut.

Hey, cool! Second place in a VERY tough week! Sometimes the best praise is being placed alongside excellent reviews. Thanks, Bloomer!


Note to gamers: when someone shoots you in the face, they aren't "gay." They are "psychopathic."

It's featured now.


"Too often we enjoy the comfort of opinion without the discomfort of thought." - John F. Kennedy on reality

"What if everything you see is more than what you see--the person next to you is a warrior and the space that appears empty is a secret door to another world? What if something appears that shouldn't? You either dismiss it, or you accept that there is much more to the world than you think. Perhaps it really is a doorway, and if you choose to go inside, you'll find many unexpected things." - Shigeru Miyamoto
