Alien Swarm (PC)

Alien Swarm review (PC)

Reviewed on July 25, 2010

Alien Swarm has drawn numerous comparisons to Left 4 Dead, and not without reason. Theyíre both products of Valve, and they both place four players in the situation of having to fend off waves of very ugly (and very mindless) enemies, often to satisfyingly gory results. But whereas L4Dís team dynamics were its selling point, there really isnít much more to Alien Swarm than whatís on the surface, and thatís not a bad thing at all. Sometimes itís fun to just arm yourself with a giant minigun and pretend youíre a marine from Aliens. Sometimes itís fun to go on a simple bug hunt.

Illusion of Gaia (SNES)

Illusion of Gaia review (SNES)

Reviewed on July 25, 2010

There are darker skinned people in Freejia, but they exist only to populate the Diamond Mines or be sold to even worse fates in the dark corners of the world. After a trip to these human markets, the cherry blossoms and the content demeanor of most of the townís residents seem a sick joke. The heaviest feeling of despair comes not from seeing those who suffer but from witnessing the ignorance of those who donít.

Breath of Death VII: The Beginning (Xbox 360)

Breath of Death VII: The Beginning review (X360)

Reviewed on July 24, 2010

Breath of Death VII is one of those rare parody games that recognises and mocks the pitfalls of its genre, but then sidesteps them in its own design, equipping itself with a veneer of smug satisfaction that transfers to the gamer.

Broken Sword: The Sleeping Dragon (PC)

Broken Sword: The Sleeping Dragon review (PC)

Reviewed on July 24, 2010

Recently, a Directorís Cut of the first game has been released on both the iPhone and the Wii. Both versions prove what a remarkable title that still is, despite feeling somewhat aged now. But for me, The Sleeping Dragon will always mark the pinnacle of the series: despite some shaky mechanics, itís the one Iíd be least willing to let slip from memory.

Final Fantasy XII (PlayStation 2)

Final Fantasy XII review (PS2)

Reviewed on July 24, 2010

World-building is a very important aspect of the fantasy genre, but many works fall into the trap of making world-building the most important aspect. This typically happens when a constructed world is so deep, so immense, and so full of history and culture, that the writer hasnít spared enough attention to address the other important areas of the story, such as the characters that inhabit this world and their personal growth. In the case of Final Fantasy XII, the characters and the plot only exi...

Enchanted Arms (Xbox 360)

Enchanted Arms review (X360)

Reviewed on July 24, 2010

The emperor of one of the game's regions is a morbidly obese, incompetent, cowardly moron who spends his time sleeping, eating and cavorting with his personal harem of golem girls (who appear "Chris Hanson is watching" young) while delegating minor things like the enforcement of his rule to an unscrupulous ninja who only cares about the fate of his clan. It's obvious things probably won't end well for Tokimune, but it's still near-impossible to not laugh out loud during every one of his scenes.

Young Thor (PlayStation 3)

Young Thor review (PS3)

Reviewed on July 24, 2010

Though it's easy to steamroll through many of the early fights in the game by simply pounding the ground a lot or frying adversaries from a distance, later battles require more finesse and some of them (like the banshees) will force you to develop actual strategies if you want to consistently win. After all, ground pounds don't work well on teleporting ghosts. Those later encounters keep things interesting by practically forcing you to utilize dodges, since you'll eventually run out of magical energy if you don't string together your most powerful attacks with some weaker ones.

Onechanbara: Bikini Samurai Squad (Xbox 360)

Onechanbara: Bikini Samurai Squad review (X360)

Reviewed on July 24, 2010

Iím not exactly sure what did it, but I had huge doubts about Onechanbara right from the start. Maybe it was the opening cinema where our buxom hero Aya showers, lavishing the player with her glistening lower back tattoo while dripping with steamy water, or perhaps it was the fact I was playing a game subtitled Bikini Samurai Squad. Nevertheless, I didnít expect a brawler about scantily clad women chopping up zombies to be as fun as it turned out to be.

Limbo (Xbox 360)

Limbo review (X360)

Reviewed on July 23, 2010

The first thing that you're sure to notice is the monochrome visual design. There's not a drop of color to be seen. You might suppose that Limbo would be an ugly game as a result, or that things would quickly blur together into a thoroughly forgettable mess. Nothing could be further from the truth, however. The lush forests and the imposing industrial areas that you'll explore over the course of your adventure are presented with exemplary attention to detail. Insects fill the air, mist rolls through the trees and clods of dirt fly into the air as the hero scrambles along ledges or wades through knee-high grass. Yet even with the signs of life all around, there's a striking sense of isolation. Something is wrong with the world and, for the right sort of gamer, that will feel very right.

NIER (PlayStation 3)

NIER review (PS3)

Reviewed on July 22, 2010

Following a mammoth release like Final Fantasy XIII, itís easy for other gamesóeven under the same developeróto fall victim to overshadowing. The buzz isnít as loud, the advertising not as aggressive and the companyís overall efforts committed to one and not the other. Nier was a perfect example. Rightly so, perhaps, given that itís a new endeavor for Square but itís still somewhat disappointing. Nier was a game Iíd never seen a commercial for, never given the opportunity to...

Split/Second (PlayStation 3)

Split/Second review (PS3)

Reviewed on July 21, 2010

In a week crowded with releases like Rockstarís Red Dead Redemption and Remedyís Alan Wake, itís easy to forgive gamers who didnít pick up Split/Second on day one. But now that the game has been out for a while, any fan of arcade-style racing games that doesnít pick this one up is going to miss out on one of the most enjoyable racing experiences of this generation. Combining high-speed racing with excellent presentation and game design that rewards constant retries, Black Rock Studios h...

Fantasy Wars (PC)

Fantasy Wars review (PC)

Reviewed on July 21, 2010

When it comes to difficulty in videogames, my feelings often appear contradictory. I frequently grow impatient or bored with oppressively difficult action titles like Contra, but when I play games that actually require me to think, I revel in the challenge. I suppose itís a matter of interest and ability. I enjoy strategy because I know Iím smart and so seek to prove that against anyone daring enough to try me. Thatís why Iím so addicted to Fantasy Wars. It leaves very little room ...

Singularity (Xbox 360)

Singularity review (X360)

Reviewed on July 21, 2010

Singularity doesnít merely look and sound like BioShock. It doesnít merely copy a few of its most popular features. This is a game that actually feels like 2Kís famed shooter. Even the more creative weapons (such as the Time Manipulation Device) feel like they belong in the BioShock universe.

Young Thor (PlayStation 3)

Young Thor review (PS3)

Reviewed on July 20, 2010

Hel, the female ruler of the Norse underworld, has kidnapped the Norns and corrupted the tree of life in an attempt to usher in Ragnarok. All that stands in her way is one pimply, red-haired youth with a hammer. Thor, though still in his infancy, vows to defeat his nefarious cousin, return order to Midgard and to do it all quickly enough that the player can be home in time for supper. At least one of those things will occur. Clocking in at roughly four hours, Young Thor is a really short ...

Trinity Universe (PlayStation 3)

Trinity Universe review (PS3)

Reviewed on July 20, 2010

Trinity Universe is a hodgepodge of that same brand of silliness and rambunctious dialog that has successfully transformed NIS America's past efforts into such memorable affairs.

Aphelion: Graves of Earth review (X360)

Reviewed on July 19, 2010

The episodic nature of the title goes some way to explaining the inconclusive ending to the game, but my exhaustive relationship with Sam & Max means I know itís not really excuse. I suppose it claws creditability back by being a fantastic game suffering a ďnot quite there yetĒ by-line.

Crackdown 2 (Xbox 360)

Crackdown 2 review (X360)

Reviewed on July 18, 2010

The Xbox 360 has been home to many new and interesting IPs, most of which I've enjoyed, like Condemned, Gears of War, and BioShock. These titles incorporated play mechanics that made them fun experiences, and, for two of the games, showed potential in what could have been great, long-running series. Then the sequels came out, and they were the exact opposite of what I hoped for. In Condemned 2's case, it was because it strayed away from the first's spooky atmosphere and real sense of surviving h...

Naval Assault: The Killing Tide review (X360)

Reviewed on July 17, 2010

While cruising 40 or 50 feet below the surface, the gameís idea of acceleration mirrors that of a snail. It doesnít matter if the submarine is traveling at top speed because the player will always feel like heís riding a Rascal Scooter.
