Xenon 2: Megablast (Genesis)

Xenon 2: Megablast review (GEN)

Reviewed on January 23, 2011

I respect Xenon 2 for the envelopes it pushed, but this doesnít qualify it for a free pass; it doesnít excuse its mistakes. Remember its innovations fondly, if you like, just donít revisit them. Thereís no reason to; no reward for your efforts. Just one final note from Bitmap Brothers saying ďBy the way? We know you cheated to get this far, and we hate you.Ē
Medal of Honor (PlayStation 3)

Medal of Honor review (PS3)

Reviewed on January 14, 2011

Medal of Honor can barely claim to being more than half a game, the half it does right, it excels. The other half isnít bad for a first attempt -- but thatís not really good enough, is it?
101-in-1 Sports Party Megamix (Wii)

101-in-1 Sports Party Megamix review (WII)

Reviewed on January 11, 2011

Iím simply going to present the facts. Nothing here works. Even with its budget title status, itís not worth the price of admission.
Red Dead Redemption (Xbox 360)

Red Dead Redemption review (X360)

Reviewed on January 09, 2011

Youíll want to squeeze every second of life from Red Dead Redemption. Youíll do this because you know that, sooner or later, the game will end and youíll no longer be a part of its world. YouĎll want to elongate your stay. And John Marston will let you, because there might be someone out there somewhere he hasnít shot at yet.
Astonishia Story (PSP)

Astonishia Story review (PSP)

Reviewed on January 01, 2011

I canít help but think of Astonisha Story bravely treading water. It was never in its nature to be spectacular, but it could have settled with quietly competent had Ubisoft thrown it a life preserver rather than hurled rocks from the shore.
Kozu (Xbox 360)

Kozu review (X360)

Reviewed on December 18, 2010

Kozu is one of THOSE games that pop up on XBLA in droves; itís a duel stick shooter that we should really be more pissed at Geometry Wars for popularising. We could try really hard to pretend that Kozu isnít the latest contender in the homebrew developerís favourite genre choice, but your denial would have to be measured in galaxies to overcome the sheer volume of evidence to the contrary. So, letís not. Letís just talk about how Kozu is an okay little game, but not one to reach the loft heights preset by the likes of Z0MBIES and Zombie Estate.
Recettear: An Item Shop's Tale (PC)

Recettear: An Item Shop's Tale review (PC)

Reviewed on November 27, 2010

Recettear: An Item Shop Game is the surprise success of 2010, and deservedly so. Itís a homebrew game that, when published by what was little more than a fan base, quickly turned the part-time publishers hobby into a full time job. It doesnít just exceed expectations: it rewrites them.
101-in-1 Sports Megamix (DS)

101-in-1 Sports Megamix review (DS)

Reviewed on November 16, 2010

Tennisí failure doesnít detract from every game, and you could argue that when given such a large number of sports to partake in, thereís always going to be some duds, and youíre always going to be able to skip over some events and still have enough points locked away to attempt everything. The problem is that there are too many mini-games that play out like the failures than there are the successes.
Medal of Honor (Xbox 360)

Medal of Honor review (X360)

Reviewed on November 10, 2010

I wonít pretend that Iíll not sink hours and hours of my time into online play, but it doesnít stop the title from being only half of what it should be. Iím not about to ignore that.
Mafia II (Xbox 360)

Mafia II review (X360)

Reviewed on November 08, 2010

Could have been saved if someone, just once, said "Nyaah, see?" and chomped a cigar.
Tasty Planet: Back for Seconds (PC)

Tasty Planet: Back for Seconds review (PC)

Reviewed on October 24, 2010

Thereís a cleverness in the level design that helps extend the gameís brief lifespan.
101-in-1 Megamix (PSP)

101-in-1 Megamix review (PSP)

Reviewed on October 12, 2010

Winter Voices -- Chapter One: Avalanche (PC)

Winter Voices -- Chapter One: Avalanche review (PC)

Reviewed on October 01, 2010

Poor pacing, boring battles and mountains of pretentious prattling more suited to a art house coffee shop after hours. The game tries -- it really tries -- to take the gamer on an intellectual ride, to sell to them its world, its setting and its misery. But in doing so, often forgets that itís meant to be a functioning game underneath all this.
Halo: Reach (Xbox 360)

Halo: Reach review (X360)

Reviewed on September 30, 2010

Thereís success to be found in Reach but the conclusion is forever fated to be bitter-sweet. Itís your role to watch the planet you set out to defend burn, and thereís nothing you can do to stop it. All you can do is try to make sure that before the cities are crushed and the surface turned to glass, that the invading army knows fear the way you do. And if thatís not enough, that they also know that a 5.52mm bullet to the head is universally fatal independent of race.
Resident Evil (PlayStation)

Resident Evil review (PSX)

Reviewed on September 25, 2010

Resident Evil deserves its recognition for what it accomplishes and what it brought to the table, but that doesnít mean what it does wrong should get a get-out-of-jail-free card.
Zombie Estate (Xbox 360)

Zombie Estate review (X360)

Reviewed on September 18, 2010

B>Zombie Estate is sadistic. Itís pure, overwhelming numbers that know they boarder on cheapness, then double up out of spite, and youíll love them for it. Iíd like to start out by saying Ďthings start off slowlyí out of a misguided sense of clichť, but Iíd be lying. Things start out manageably. At this point, youíll only have your basic pistol weapon, and you can finish the hordes off with a small sense of comfort if you find yourself proficient at dual-stick shooters.
Top Gun (PlayStation 3)

Top Gun review (PS3)

Reviewed on September 11, 2010

It would be completely fair to suggest that there are worse flight sims available than the newest reiteration of Top Gun, but it would be foolish not to then consider just how many are better.
Broken Sword: Director's Cut (PC)

Broken Sword: Director's Cut review (PC)

Reviewed on September 09, 2010

Itís almost like Revolution have silently admitted the world is getting dumber, and wanted to baby a new generation along whilst they used to be content with challenging them.
Virtua Fighter CG Portrait Series Vol. 3: Akira Yuki (Saturn)

Virtua Fighter CG Portrait Series Vol. 3: Akira Yuki review (SAT)

Reviewed on September 06, 2010

Virtua Fighter CG Portrait Series Vol. 3 is a tale about one warrior versus mother nature. A non-interactive, grainy tale thatís over in five minutes. Pity poor Akiraís plight, but donít line the pockets of those who wish to profit from it with shoddy Saturn imports!
Sam & Max: The City That Dares Not Sleep (PC)

Sam & Max: The City That Dares Not Sleep review (PC)

Reviewed on September 04, 2010

Season Three follows this trend by not only being a more adventuresome series of bite-sized quests than those that precede it, but by spit-roasting the results over a curiously potent combination of insanity, Twilight Zone-esque noir and a healthy foundation of self deprecation.
