Sonic Colors (Wii)

Sonic Colors review (WII)

Reviewed on November 07, 2011

Tails makes an appearance, but he’s a plot device and the role he plays is almost completely non-annoying. As you complete the various stages, you’ll rely on the franchise’s true star, not second-rate bit players who a part of you wishes would die horrible deaths. It feels almost like you're getting away with something that you shouldn't as you play through the game’s 36 main stages and don't hate the bulk of them.

Gemini Rue (PC)

Gemini Rue review (PC)

Reviewed on November 07, 2011

Gemini Rue is an adventure game that doesn't care to hide its influences. The title screen – set to the sight and sounds of the rain-stricken planet of Barracus – evokes the feeling of a grim, desperate dystopia that takes a cue from the likes of Blade Runner and Cowboy Bebop.

Sonic Generations (Xbox 360)

Sonic Generations review (X360)

Reviewed on November 07, 2011

It's great the controls feel so homey, giving players the chance to soak in the well-executed familiarity of Generations. If you've been playing a ton of Sonic games for the past 20 years, you'll sense the love with this product; it's fanservice overload. It works so seamlessly, too, thanks to Sonic Team's respect of the source materials, avoiding bastardization.

Battlefield 3 (PC)

Battlefield 3 review (PC)

Reviewed on November 07, 2011

More than any other graphics engine today, it's a complete package, featuring scale, scope, spectacle, on-foot detail and in-airplane elbow room, multiplayer, meaningful destruction, and absurdly good animation. Absurdly good. The animation is so good you probably won't even notice it. Of course the characters move this way because that's how real dudes move. What's the big deal? You almost have to go back to another game with the usual animation to appreciate what Battlefield 3 does.

Tropico 4 (Xbox 360)

Tropico 4 review (X360)

Reviewed on November 06, 2011

Remember how back when you first got your PC and you played Sim City for hours on end without really understanding why? Welcome to the 2011 version of that phenomenon. Say goodbye to large chunks of your time.

GoldenEye 007: Reloaded (Xbox 360)

GoldenEye 007: Reloaded review (X360)

Reviewed on November 05, 2011

Stages may feel generic, but they now flow in a more natural fashion and enemy placement was more carefully considered to provide interesting challenges. It’s clear that you’re going through the same motions you always did, but now those motions are more enjoyable. Late in the game, I was delighted to find that I actually enjoyed protecting Natalya when the need arose.

Front Mission Evolved (Xbox 360)

Front Mission Evolved review (X360)

Reviewed on November 04, 2011

With Front Mission Evolved, Square-Enix and Double Helix take virtually all of the strategy out of the title and leave us with a clunky third-person shooter with an uninspired terrorism plot featuring shallow, one-dimensional characters.

Daytona USA (Xbox 360)

Daytona USA review (X360)

Reviewed on November 04, 2011

Daytona USA was an experience. And it’s the sort of experience that can never be brought home. Sure, we can search online for seven like-minded old school players to have a go, but that doesn’t come close. What might have come close, would be local multiplayer, so that at least you could invite friends over and split-screen race to your hearts’ content. Guess what? Local multiplayer is not available. Oops.

Serious Sam: The Random Encounter (PC)

Serious Sam: The Random Encounter review (PC)

Reviewed on November 04, 2011

The Random Encounter ends almost as fast as it begins, but your five bucks get you a punchy, colorful, and vivid throwback to the heyday of the RPG, mashed up with all the violent insanity of Serious Sam. Fans who need their next fix would do well to check out the previous indie offering Double D in addition to this quickie, simply to serve as a great palate cleanser before jumping right back into the hotbed of ravenous monsters that is the Serious Sam universe. The Random Encounter is short, sweet, and certainly a breath of fresh air for what is quickly becoming a stagnant genre.

Metroid: Other M (Wii)

Metroid: Other M review (WII)

Reviewed on November 03, 2011

That's the problem with Metroid: Other M. It's a game that clearly understands what makes a Metroid experience great, so every time it chooses not to use that knowledge I'm left scratching my head and asking "why?"

Kingdom Hearts: Birth by Sleep (PSP)

Kingdom Hearts: Birth by Sleep review (PSP)

Reviewed on November 03, 2011

In all areas, Kingdom Hearts: Birth by Sleep is a nice break from the traditional RPG experience. The story is engaging, the combat is fast-paced and the gimmicks work. The biggest indicator of its success, though, is the fact that I was captivated throughout three playthroughs. Never once did I feel like I’d “been there and done that.” That alone is worth a recommendation.

Fallout 3 (PlayStation 3)

Fallout 3 review (PS3)

Reviewed on November 03, 2011

More than two years after its release, Fallout 3 remains as flawed as it is fun.

Uncharted 3: Drake's Deception (PlayStation 3)

Uncharted 3: Drake's Deception review (PS3)

Reviewed on November 02, 2011

Uncharted 3 is mostly filler without gameplay. It's the modern equivalent of those full motion video games folks made back in the 90s when new CD-ROMs afforded all that storage space. So developers shot video footage, grafted it onto various games (usually puzzle collections), and a genre was born. Who cares whether there was an actual game in there?

Kirby's Return to Dream Land (Wii)

Kirby's Return to Dream Land review (WII)

Reviewed on November 02, 2011

Levels are built more like playgrounds than obstacles. You’ll hop along hills, dodge slow-moving arrow projectiles and knights who wield swords that could easily have been drawn with Crayons. Kirby’s Return to Dream Land is comfort food for gamers and you won’t want to stop eating anytime soon.

Dragon Age 2 (PC)

Dragon Age 2 review (PC)

Reviewed on October 31, 2011

There have been complaints, and will be many more, that Dragon Age II is appealing for a more mainstream audience by removing all the fiddling of its predecessor, but I don’t think this is a fair accusation. There is very little that you could do before which is no longer possible. The difference is that the extraneous elements have been stripped away, giving the action space to breathe.

Deathsmiles (Xbox 360)

Deathsmiles review (X360)

Reviewed on October 30, 2011

Instead, you control underage goth girls with magical powers, tasked with stopping a demonic invasion on the verge of All-Hallows-Eve, ignited by a man obsessed with creating a portal back to the real world. Ye... it's not as creepy as it sounds.

Batman: Arkham City (Xbox 360)

Batman: Arkham City review (X360)

Reviewed on October 30, 2011

It reminded me of the first time I played Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic, not just because it’s awesome – though it certainly is – but for how thoroughly it explores the potential of its fictional, decades-old universe in the context of interactive entertainment. This is the definitive Batman game; if you were to take out the franchise-specific characters and settings and leave the design itself intact, it would still feel distinctly like a Batman game.

Spider-Man: Shattered Dimensions (Xbox 360)

Spider-Man: Shattered Dimensions review (X360)

Reviewed on October 28, 2011

Each level revolves around its boss, with some of them creating a memorable experience. Sandman's Amazing (and amazing) stage features the villain spending much of the time in the shape of a tornado. For Spider-Man to reach water towers to tip on him, disrupting his powers, you'll have to use your webbing to zip from one piece of flying debris to another.

Crazy Taxi (Xbox 360)

Crazy Taxi review (X360)

Reviewed on October 28, 2011

While details about the interface have changed, what you'll find once you download the game is that mostly SEGA left things alone. The result is a generally faithful port of the Dreamcast port, with one disappointing exception: the soundtrack is now free from the sounds of The Offspring. In place of that distinct soundtrack, players now are treated to some generic music that sounds sort of like the original tunes, only not quite. Whether you appreciated the music in the original game or not, it was part of the game's identity.

Koudelka (PlayStation)

Koudelka review (PSX)

Reviewed on October 28, 2011

I can only guess that it was Koudelka's lack of polish that scared off the popular crowd, but its merits far outweigh its superficial flaws. Make no mistake, Koudelka is a stellar dark RPG with a great story, one that was sadly overlooked.
