Alone in the Dark 3 (PC)

Alone in the Dark 3 review (PC)

Reviewed on November 24, 2011

Alone 3 tries to blend the first game’s unparalleled approach to otherworldly detective work, with the second game’s more lighthearted but equally smart MacGyver-esque sleuthing (and jacked-up combat), in order to arrive at a happy medium. To the credit of the developers, the mixture does reach a medium, but it’s not happy.

The War of the Worlds (Xbox 360)

The War of the Worlds review (X360)

Reviewed on November 23, 2011

WotW isn't exactly unplayable; the tense narrative and bleak, nearly monochromatic presentation does much to convey the hopelessness of the human plight in London in the face of merciless invaders.

Jackal (NES)

Jackal review (NES)

Reviewed on November 22, 2011

Jackal is a fine slice of 8-bit war game heaven. It keeps the action rolling forward, but isn't completely mindless. Mashing buttons and watching things explode isn't what Jackal is all about. Dodging bullet after bullet and learning to deal with each situation as it arises is the meat of the game, and Jackal handles it without killing the pace.

Halo: Combat Evolved - Anniversary (Xbox 360)

Halo: Combat Evolved - Anniversary review (X360)

Reviewed on November 21, 2011

When the rocket launcher and shotgun appear later in the game, they appear for specific situations and not because your arsenal has been lacking up to this point. And from the early appearance of grunts on the Pillar of Autumn all the way to the grand reveal of the Flood and the Sentinels, Halo is a textbook example of how to gradually unfold enemies in a meaningful way. Are you prepared to fear a cloaked elite with an energy sword for the very first time, all over again?

Otomedius Excellent (Xbox 360)

Otomedius Excellent review (X360)

Reviewed on November 19, 2011

After 26 years of Gradius games and various spin-offs, this is what the long-running franchise has come to: a new series featuring school girls in revealing outfits, piloting equally skimpy ships as they fight Bacterians invading Earth, who, by the way, consist mainly of women in interesting outfits. Also of interest is the ability to move a little cursor on the character select screen; touch their heads and get a cute response... touch their chest and watch them jiggle.

Broken Sword: Director's Cut (PC)

Broken Sword: Director's Cut review (PC)

Reviewed on November 19, 2011

Despite all of its pretensions of intrigue and mystery, the most fun to be had in Broken Sword: The Director’s Cut is found by going around, bothering every character by showing them every piece of junk in your inventory, and eliciting their amusingly rude responses to your queries. There was clearly someone involved in Broken Sword who had incredible writing talent, because the colorful cast of characters is truly one of a kind. Unfortunately, this talent was misguided and misused, and having t...

Lost Odyssey (Xbox 360)

Lost Odyssey review (X360)

Reviewed on November 18, 2011

In over 1,000 years, he's seen people and kingdoms come and go and has had to find his own way to cope with being seemingly the only constant in a life where everything else is temporary. For much of his existence on this world, Kaim has alternated between traveling and serving as a mercenary — his life a nomadic existence where war is the only constant. No wonder he comes off as cold and antisocial.

The Silver Lining Episode 4: 'Tis In My Memory Locked, And You Yourself Shall Keep The Key Of It review (PC)

Reviewed on November 16, 2011

It fails on just about every imaginable level. The only thing even approaching a saving grace is the price: it's free. But even that's irritating because it means I can't even have the pleasure of angrily demanding my money back.

Bejeweled 3 (Xbox 360)

Bejeweled 3 review (X360)

Reviewed on November 16, 2011

All PopCap could do to evolve the experience was to polish the presentation, and tack on enough variations of the main game to entice us to dive in. Fortunately, they’ve done both fairly well here. The results aren’t spectacular, as they were with EA’s exquisitely refined Tetris, but it’s about as good a job as can be expected.

Super Mario Bros. 2 (NES)

Super Mario Bros. 2 review (NES)

Reviewed on November 14, 2011

Viewed as a sequel, SMB2 is a victory because the experience is as fresh and imaginative as it is challenging and exciting. Viewed as a repackaging, it's still a win because it's a stellar platformer with or without Mario and company.

Dreamfall: The Longest Journey (PC)

Dreamfall: The Longest Journey review (PC)

Reviewed on November 14, 2011

The central narrative arc is beautiful: this is a game which expands on its predecessor’s coming of age story, and presents something altogether more grown-up. If The Longest Journey demonstrated the progression from the naivety of youth to the responsibility of adulthood, Dreamfall is a game about taking that newfound maturity and giving it back to those in need.

Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 (Xbox 360)

Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 review (X360)

Reviewed on November 11, 2011

This final chapter in the trilogy provides what is unquestionably the purest adrenaline rush that the series has yet seen. I’m left imagining someone on the development team turning a giant crank until it rests at ‘11’ and then just leaving it there. Explosions are huge. Planes crash. Buildings collapse. There are moments that feel like they were torn out of the previous games, except here the ante has been upped.

The Cursed Crusade (Xbox 360)

The Cursed Crusade review (X360)

Reviewed on November 11, 2011

This game finds a way to turn exciting-sounding historical events, such as the siege of the Croatian city Zara, into linear marches through static environments cluttered with a bunch of melee battles that all play out the same. This might not be the appropriate game for the quote "WHAT A HORRIBLE NIGHT TO HAVE A CURSE", but it fits.

Saints Row: The Third (Xbox 360)

Saints Row: The Third review (X360)

Reviewed on November 11, 2011

It is immaculately paced because it loves you. Most games can be insensitive clods with occasional rough patches. You get stuck for a while, or it's slow to start, or you cruise through some filler, or certain design choices are clunky, or the characters are flat and you don't care about them, or you know exactly what's going to happen next and therefore when it happens you don't care. None of this happens in Saints Row 3, which is a textbook example of how to keep me into a game from beginning to open-ended end.

Final Fantasy: The 4 Heroes of Light review (DS)

Reviewed on November 10, 2011

Customizing your characters has seldom been simpler in an RPG. Any hero in your merry band can be anything you like. It all comes down to the crowns with which you equip everyone. As you progress through the game and defeat powerful monsters, a magical crystal will bestow upon your party the gift of a new crown or two. A character who starts with the ability to just barely wield a sword can eventually grow into a battle-hardened Fighter, or perhaps a Black Mage or even something as frivolous as a Bard.

Halloween (Atari 2600)

Halloween review (A2600)

Reviewed on November 10, 2011

Once the shock wears thin, you'll still have inventive gameplay. However, the act of running from one room to another, saving children, trying to survive, and stabbing Michael Myers becomes a slow and tedious one. There's little in the way of fast-paced or addictive gameplay, so the simplicity and extreme repetition make for a rather dull experience.

Super Mario 3D Land (3DS)

Super Mario 3D Land review (3DS)

Reviewed on November 09, 2011

Super Mario 3D Land is clearly ready to have a love affair with your nostalgic side. You can make a game out of recognizing musical compositions, enemies and even platform types that you recall from elsewhere. Given the raccoon tail, the airships, the mushroom houses and a variety of other returning elements, it’s clear from the start that Super Mario Bros. 3 was the development team’s primary source of inspiration.

Mega Man: Dr. Wily's Revenge (Game Boy)

Mega Man: Dr. Wily's Revenge review (GB)

Reviewed on November 09, 2011

Only six levels, very few chances to test out new weapons, and situations we've seen before (magical though they are)... Mega Man: Dr. Wily's Revenge is not going to satisfy most gamers, especially those without a hankering for retro or a deep love for Mega Man. Only the hardcore fans will seek this one out and enjoy it, though maybe not as much as they would other contributions to the vast franchise.
