Ghostbusters: The Video Game (Wii)

Ghostbusters: The Video Game review (WII)

Reviewed on August 16, 2009

It's got the script, style, and soul of its source material, but fails to build a compelling game around these elements.

Afro Samurai (Xbox 360)

Afro Samurai review (X360)

Reviewed on August 16, 2009

Afro Samurai is at its best when it just wants to be a simple, 3D hack 'n slash title. The game will try to convince you that it's deeper by giving you such abilities as a parry move, but it's completely useless when you're up against more than two opponents. When you're fighting five or six foes at a time, parrying is completely out of the question, and you'll simply have to hack 'n slash like crazy, stringing together combos with the light slash, heavy slash, and kick buttons. If the si...

Ballyhoo (Apple II)

Ballyhoo review (APP2)

Reviewed on August 16, 2009

Infocom's text adventure Ballyhoo turns a circus into a deadly kidnapping mystery, never sacrificing reality for dramatic tension. Chelsea Munrab, the daughter of circus owner Thomas Munrab, has been kidnapped. As a straggler from the show's crowd, you hear a conversation between Munrab and the detective in your town. Munrab blames the locals and suggests the detective do the same.

Killing Floor (PC)

Killing Floor review (PC)

Reviewed on August 15, 2009

Killing Floor's amateur origins are uncomfortably clear, and there's no doubting that a little more polish would have gone a long way. Still, when you find yourself scurrying between cover in an open field at night, carefully aiming for the heads of a stream of mutated foes, before someone chimes in on the radio and makes a gag about liking "the big ones" the best, you'll understand. For all its quirks, inconsistencies and annoyances, you'll likely find something to love.

G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra (PlayStation 3)

G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra review (PS3)

Reviewed on August 15, 2009

Instead of copying something like Halo or even a third-person shooter along the lines of Gears of War, two options that surely must have been appealing and may have led to something interesting, the developers went a different route. The result is a shooter viewed primarily from far overhead. Its not-quite-isometric viewpoint allows for expansive environments, large battles and lots of run 'n gun action, a bit like classic Contra if it were turned 90 degrees.

The King of Fighters XII (Xbox 360)

The King of Fighters XII review (X360)

Reviewed on August 14, 2009

The King of the Fighters XII may have a new sheen, but it's missing a lot of what made some of those early titles so entertaining. At times it just feels incomplete. Some characters have regressed to their move sets from much earlier games, while others have been cut altogether.

G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra (Xbox 360)

G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra review (X360)

Reviewed on August 12, 2009

Finishing a mission on "Casual" level won't award you as many tokens as the more challenging choices and effectively prevents you from ever recruiting a full team of mercenaries. That's disappointing since one of the game's coolest features is the ability to recruit four special Cobra characters. You'll either need to man up and repeat stages on the higher difficulty setting (or do so right from the start), or you'll need to play through the whole adventure as Duke and Scarlet so that you have points left once the coolest characters become available.

God of War (PlayStation 2)

God of War review (PS2)

Reviewed on August 10, 2009

So I was playing God of War the other day. I’d reached this one room inside the labyrinthian Temple of Pandora where you have to use a lever to knock the the world out of the hands of a model of Atlas. The world will roll down a hallway, destroying a locked door at the other hand. Sounds simple, right? But I’ll be damned if I couldn’t get that lever to pull. I moved all around it, I jammed the buttons on my controller, I checked gamefaqs and still the damn thing wouldn’t cooperate. ...

Splosion Man (Xbox 360)

Splosion Man review (X360)

Reviewed on August 09, 2009

In possibly the most massive scientific lab ever imagined, the scientist you control made an awesome discovery allowing him to detonate his own body regularly with no physical harm. Unfortunately, there was a minor side effect, as the chap is now pretty frickin' insane; causing the other scientists to lock him away in solitary confinement.

Ghostbusters: The Video Game (PlayStation 3)

Ghostbusters: The Video Game review (PS3)

Reviewed on August 09, 2009

The plot begins by ambitiously introducing two new central characters—a strange young woman and a rookie member of the ghostbusters team—but after that it almost immediately turns into a retread of familiar adventures. Many of the same faces and places make new appearances, to the point that although the story is technically all-new (and penned by Dan Aykroyd and Harold Ramis, who drafted the original), it often feels like a rerun. This time, though, someone stripped out most of the good parts. There's nowhere near enough of the memorable dialog that made the film so good and even the most interesting bits wear out their welcome because you're playing the thing, not watching it.

Naruto: Clash of Ninja 2 (GameCube)

Naruto: Clash of Ninja 2 review (GCN)

Reviewed on August 09, 2009

Naruto: Clash of Ninja 2 pretends it doesn't have that little number at the end of its title. It uses the same cel-shaded graphics, features the same fighting engine, and even recycles combos for reappearing characters. The game goes so far as to completely subsume the story of its predecessor, starting over to tell Naruto's tale from the very beginning. Clash of Ninja 2 is superior, though, because of one profound improvement: four-way multiplayer.

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Turtles in Time Re-shelled (Xbox 360)

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Turtles in Time Re-shelled review (X360)

Reviewed on August 07, 2009

Something a lot of fans will appreciate is the ability to chase Krang and Shredder through time as a united team. On consoles, no more than two friends have ever been able to team up for the cause, but now you can gather three other buddies and really raise some shell! Both local and online play are allowed, with plenty of enthusiastic strangers just waiting to team up against evil at all times of the day, night and early morning.

Wallace & Gromit’s Grand Adventures: The Bogey Man (PC)

Wallace & Gromit’s Grand Adventures: The Bogey Man review (PC)

Reviewed on August 06, 2009

It's never overtly bad. It's just grossly unambitious, lacking in any real flair, and growing stale at an alarming rate. So while Grand Adventures has been a fun ride, it's for the best that it's reached its conclusion. It just could have done to finish last month instead.

Kirby: Canvas Curse (DS)

Kirby: Canvas Curse review (DS)

Reviewed on August 06, 2009

I was going to say that Kirby: Canvas Curse does for the touch screen what Super Mario 64 did for the analog stick, but that isn’t right. The latter standardized the concept of movement in a three-dimensional space and is now the model for console games, whereas the former has been out for over four years now, and I still have yet to witness anything else like it. Rightly so, too – flipping Samus into perpetual morph ball mode and guiding her around the screen with a hand-drawn ...

Icarus: Alien Vanguard (PC)

Icarus: Alien Vanguard review (PC)

Reviewed on August 06, 2009

Shuttlecraft, the first level, is arguably the best introduction to a Doom game I've experienced. It's longer than most and there are a few sneaky little tricks to ensure it's a good bit tougher than expected for the first map. It has this tiny chapel that seems non-threatening and actually is uninhabited when you enter, but things go Silent Hill and it transforms into the sort of nightmarish place you'd expect black mass sacrifices to be held. Not to mention all those imps that appear to ensure you're that sacrifice. Pure gold.

Scythe (PC)

Scythe review (PC)

Reviewed on August 06, 2009

Almost every Doom II mod out there, good or bad, takes the same approach: endless sprawl, insane enemy counts, and the subtlety of whichever metaphor cliché you prefer. I'll go with a sledgehammer. Play one and it's fresh, play two and it's still exciting. Once you've barreled through enough of them, though, you come dangerously close to thinking it's time to give up on Doom.

The Conduit (Wii)

The Conduit review (WII)

Reviewed on August 06, 2009

The Conduit most often feels like a light gun shooter that’s been ripped off of its tracks, which is due as much to the arcade-like nature of the level design as it is to the control scheme itself. There’s a light, frenetic nature in the way The Conduit unravels, and High Voltage seems okay with that. The game’s pace is fierce and the action is constant.
