Metro 2033 (Xbox 360)

Metro 2033 review (X360)

Reviewed on August 20, 2011

We see human communities in which everyone contributes, everyone does their part and everyone looks out for one another. We see people sitting around fires, sharing drinks, and playing music. We see soldiers risking their lives for their comrades. Not all good things have been lost, and these frequent reminders are what keeps Metro 2033 from becoming as oppressively bleak as its spiritual brethren.

Fire Mustang (Genesis)

Fire Mustang review (GEN)

Reviewed on August 20, 2011

So, just this once, Iíll ignore the easy digs, like how the game starts in 1940, while America didnít enter the war until 1941. Or how the P-51 Mustangs I assume the game is based around were not readily available until around 1943. Instead Iíll mention how I stumbled upon a game I enjoyed playing despite looking for one to bag on.

Independence War (PC)

Independence War review (PC)

Reviewed on August 19, 2011

The great dream of space-flight! Romantic and glorious. But how would you actually fly a space-ship in completely dark space anyway? And how about spotting those incoming black dots travelling at near light speed, for example?

Elevator Action (NES)

Elevator Action review (NES)

Reviewed on August 18, 2011

The gameplay remains repetitive, the pace never quickens, the challenge spikes early on, and if you haven't lost interest by level 3 I would be surprised. Elevator Action may be regarded as a classic, but that doesn't mean its still relevant or worthwhile.

Cthulhu Saves the World (Xbox 360)

Cthulhu Saves the World review (X360)

Reviewed on August 17, 2011

You take control of Lovecraftian Elder God Cthulhu as he surfaces in order to take over (and destroy) the world. Not even tentacle-faced deities can have an easy time of things, though, as a mysterious wizard strips him of his powers. Fortunately, the game's narrator is willing to help, divulging that heroic actions will restore his magic. Therefore, it's off to reluctantly save the world (griping about doing good every step of the way)Öin order to destroy itÖ

The Smurfs Dance Party (Wii)

The Smurfs Dance Party review (WII)

Reviewed on August 16, 2011

The Smurfs Dance Party is a simple, relaxing title featuring silly fun for kids. Anyone over the age of nine might want to consider a title with more substance, but you might want to give the game a go if youíre just looking for a simple and charming family night diversion. I don't recommend paying more than $20, though.

Rocket Jockey (PC)

Rocket Jockey review (PC)

Reviewed on August 16, 2011

The rocket jockey theatrically loses the grip with one arm as the cable disengages, but hangs on valiantly around the improbable turn anyway. How does the rocket not start to rotate and spin out of control, you ask? Well, obviously the guy sits on top of the rocket sled, and it has all these steering fins and stuff, so obviously it's going to zoom at a straight path when it reaches supersonic speeds! Don't ask so many questions!

Left 4 Dead (PC)

Left 4 Dead review (PC)

Reviewed on August 16, 2011

Left 4 Dead is an intense horror experience with a pitch-perfect atmosphere of paranoia and portending doom, punctuated with madcap battles against massive zombie hordes. Or, at least, it is for about an hour or so. Once the player becomes immune to the creepy music, desensitized to clawing swarms of zombies, and gets to know the maps a little better, the game quickly becomes nothing more than a straight-faced co-op shooter.

Dead Nation (PlayStation 3)

Dead Nation review (PS3)

Reviewed on August 14, 2011

Dead Nation did something that I didn't think could be done anymore: it scared me with zombies.

Bleach: Soul Resurreccion (PlayStation 3)

Bleach: Soul Resurreccion review (PS3)

Reviewed on August 14, 2011

One of the most popular shōnen titles in the manga and anime industry right now is Bleach, a story about a boy who obtained soul reaper abilities to protect the ones he loves. You may have caught an episode or two on TV, or seen a volume of the manga in a bookstore, but letís be honest; there isnít a huge demand for anime-based video games in North America.

Salamander Deluxe Pack Plus (Saturn)

Salamander Deluxe Pack Plus review (SAT)

Reviewed on August 14, 2011

1986's Salamander, the first title in the 1997 release of Salamander Deluxe Pack Plus, acts as an ungrounded version of Gradius, which came out a year prior. Whereas Gradius required a near-methodical mindset, thanks to its checkpoint system, Salamander is more high-octane and in your face, adjusting the gameplay accordingly.

Lander (PC)

Lander review (PC)

Reviewed on August 14, 2011

"It takes subtlety to succeed here. But it is extremely rewarding when you do, and float through the maze-like levels inside the planet's surface - or through the canyons and caves. The eerie space-music perfectly accompanies you on the trip there."

L.A. Noire (PlayStation 3)

L.A. Noire review (PS3)

Reviewed on August 13, 2011

L.A. Noire is as ambitious as it is broken, presenting yet another game where you spend way too much time driving around a fantastically realised landscape while your passenger pleads with you to slow down, taking nothing but claustrophobic pre-planned routes that only showcases 10% of the gameís world with zero reason to stray outside the beaten path.

Final Fantasy (NES)

Final Fantasy review (NES)

Reviewed on August 12, 2011

The toughest part of the final dungeon for me was the opening floors, simply because I frequently ran into encounters with multiple gas dragons and their brutal breath attack. They were great to gain levels against, but when I wanted to conserve healing spells because I was making a run for the final boss, they could wreck my day.

West (Xbox 360)

West review (X360)

Reviewed on August 12, 2011

West is not quite the deep wonderland I had hoped for. It's a straightforward RPG with overt moral prattle. Guiding us into deep thought is something an intelligent game should do, but forcing us down that avenue dulls the experience.

From Dust (Xbox 360)

From Dust review (X360)

Reviewed on August 11, 2011

From Dust isn't like most strategy games. It doesn't focus more than it needs to on micromanagement. You don't have to develop a village's culture or provide the people with food or entertainment. There are no numbers to monitor and there arenít many bothersome gauges to watch. Your main concern is keeping humanity alive while trying to establish a set number of villages, ranging from one to four, on each map.

Warhammer 40,000: Kill Team (Xbox 360)

Warhammer 40,000: Kill Team review (X360)

Reviewed on August 07, 2011

With all the stylish games that have come out this summer, it's good to have one like Warhammer 40,000: Kill Team to cleanse the old palate. It's not a perfect title, but it does what it should while providing a fun and short experience.

R-Type II (Game Boy)

R-Type II review (GB)

Reviewed on August 06, 2011

The GameBoy iteration of R-Type II managed to take the already flawed and decidedly obnoxious arcade experience, and made it loathsome and near-unplayable.

Dragon Ball Z: Sagas (PlayStation 2)

Dragon Ball Z: Sagas review (PS2)

Reviewed on August 06, 2011

Dragon Ball Z: Sagas is an uninteresting brawler made worse by a gaping hole in the gameplay. It was a novel idea turning DBZ into a brawler, but Avalanche would have been better off taking the expected route in creating an arcade style beat 'em up.
