Eternal Dagger (Apple II)

Eternal Dagger review (APP2)

Reviewed on January 21, 2012

The too-short Wizard's Crown series from Strategic Simulations, Inc. had a simple solution: quick combat where the computer ran everything and flashed text of your party's health every second. It left time for the actual story and exploration.

Tobal No. 1 (PlayStation)

Tobal No. 1 review (PSX)

Reviewed on January 21, 2012

I know people have made this sort of statement before, particularly regarding Zone of the Enders, but it felt more like a $40 FFVII demo that came with a free fighting game. Not a great one at that.

Unstoppable Gorg (PC)

Unstoppable Gorg review (PC)

Reviewed on January 19, 2012

Unstoppable Gorg is a tower defense game with a twist. Thatís a claim that any PR person might make about any new offering within the genre. In this case, though, itís an especially apt description because the twist is this: you twist things.

AMY (Xbox 360)

AMY review (X360)

Reviewed on January 18, 2012

Tragically, though the poor presentation is the first thing youíll notice, itís not the worst. Not by a long shot. In fact, an argument could be made that the presentation is the best thing the game has going for it.

Star Wars: The Old Republic (PC)

Star Wars: The Old Republic review (PC)

Reviewed on January 17, 2012

The Old Republic is fun, tells some interesting stories, and offers players a vast amount of things to do. But the game still suffers from the same things that hold back all MMOs despite the class storylines and voice acting.

Faery: Legends of Avalon (Xbox 360)

Faery: Legends of Avalon review (X360)

Reviewed on January 17, 2012

The average enemy in this game seemed to come from generic lists of animals and undead. I found it somewhat annoying that the mythical Norse Yggdrasil's dungeons were loaded with hornets and termites instead of, you know, something suited for the game's theme.

Rayman Origins (Xbox 360)

Rayman Origins review (X360)

Reviewed on January 17, 2012

Taken as a counterweight to the flood of steely grey shooters littering the market, Origins is weaponized bliss. Itís also freakishly difficult, and thatís where Ancel and I have our differences.

Power Blazer (NES)

Power Blazer review (NES)

Reviewed on January 15, 2012

If the comparisons between Power Blade and Mega Man are hard to see, then Power Blazer makes them painfully obvious: you control a small, chubby fellow that dons a blue helmet, and unlike his remixed, muscled brother, this guy can only attack in two directions, left and right.

And Yet It Moves (Wii)

And Yet It Moves review (WII)

Reviewed on January 14, 2012

As you can guess, the game eventually becomes a tedious montage of screen-turning, causing the gimmick to overstay its welcome. It might not turned out so had the developers at Broken Rules added some new scenarios rather than recycling familiar ones, or even introduced other abilities than the same old song repeatedly.

Power Blade (NES)

Power Blade review (NES)

Reviewed on January 11, 2012

Beyond here, you'll take the Schwarzenegger-type avatar and pull him through a series of platform areas filled with cybernetic enemies with varying attack patterns, ranging from airborne robots to giant, bearded faces attached to walls that spit bubbles. Yes, such an enemy exists. And this is all done with the aid of a... boomerang?

Othello (NES)

Othello review (NES)

Reviewed on January 09, 2012

I was able to game early chess computers pretty easily by locking up the pawns and then watching them flail. That made me feel smart. Othello was the computer's revenge.

X-Men: Destiny (Xbox 360)

X-Men: Destiny review (X360)

Reviewed on January 08, 2012

A month after X-Men: Destiny was released, it was reported that developer Silicon Knights was forced to lay off 45 of its employees, at least half of its workforce. Now that Iíve actually played the game, I must ask: Only 45?

Skylanders: Spyro's Adventure (Xbox 360)

Skylanders: Spyro's Adventure review (X360)

Reviewed on January 08, 2012

Levels feature lots of loot and they all contain special areas that are locked behind gates. To enter gates, you must have a character with the matching affinity. As long as you have such a character and he hasnít been disabled for that stage, you can simply pull the current character off the pedestal and replace it with a new one. The whole process takes mere seconds and it lets you feel like youíre actively involved in the adventure.

Scarface: The World is Yours (PlayStation 2)

Scarface: The World is Yours review (PS2)

Reviewed on January 07, 2012

Adding difficulty is important to any game, but turning up the frustration factor too high with little payoff can cause anyone to burn out. With little variety, there's little to help cool the tension. You'll either tough out the frustration or spend your time on something more worthwhile. Either that, or you'll just play Scarface again and pretend it ends after you've secured the first half of Miami.

Infinite Undiscovery (Xbox 360)

Infinite Undiscovery review (X360)

Reviewed on January 05, 2012

You collect well over a dozen party members, many of whom have little relevance beyond, "Hey, uh, you're out to save the world, so let me help!". Many villains pop up, deliver a couple lines of dialogue, fight you and are killed. It kind of reminded me of the RPGs I played on the NES and SNES where characters would pop up and randomly join or fight you for no reason other than "I'm good; I like you!" or "I'm evil; I hate you!".

Trine 2 (Xbox 360)

Trine 2 review (X360)

Reviewed on January 04, 2012

This multi-specialty adventure is surprisingly deep and challenging for its bargain price, and if you've got the friends and the time, it's well worth the admission. If you're looking for more twists on familiar tropes, Trine 2 is your the best candidate. Pick it up and save the princess. Just don't get too caught up in sightseeing on your way to the finish line.

Defense Grid: The Awakening (PC)

Defense Grid: The Awakening review (PC)

Reviewed on January 04, 2012

Missions include special objectives that switch things up. Your options change depending on the scenario. In one case, you might be able to try a familiar stage with 99 waves instead of the usual 25 or 30. Elsewhere, you might be able to start with 20,000 resources but defeated enemies wonít drop any additional resources.

Sonic CD (PlayStation 3)

Sonic CD review (PS3)

Reviewed on December 31, 2011

Gameplay is another way in which Sonic CD doesn't meet the standard set by its more vanilla Genesis counterparts, though it doesn't fall nearly as short as it could have. Levels always have enough unique gimmicks to prevent them from blurring together in your memory. Each level effectively has four versions. By running past special posts, Sonic can travel through time and his actions in the past can change the future. This means that every level has a present version, past version, good future version, and bad future version (the good future is basically the bad future with fewer enemies). It's an interesting mechanic that can be used to keep things fresh for multiple playthroughs.
