Parasite Eve II (PlayStation)

Parasite Eve II review (PSX)

Reviewed on April 04, 2010

People take Parasite Eve’s story too seriously. I remember my scientist friend getting all worked up because the game was perpetuating what she called a “biased view of the medical certainties of Mitochondria.” On the other extreme, my dorky high school friend became convinced, after playing the first game, that if he could get his metabolism high enough he would gain super powers. The conversations that ensued from such passionate beliefs were often, to say the least, baffling. To sa...

Light's End (Xbox 360)

Light's End review (X360)

Reviewed on April 02, 2010

This mechanic lends Light’s End a unique feel; there’s no battle engine to be found or any statistics to build; it’s purely a character-based puzzler where you need to jump from differing perspectives throughout the game to keep the story moving along.

Heavy Rain (PlayStation 3)

Heavy Rain review (PS3)

Reviewed on March 31, 2010

It almost seems unfair to criticize Heavy Rain for not being a legitimate game since, to its credit, it never claims otherwise. Quantic Dream have been pushing it as an “interactive drama” since day one, and a trophy you earn early on during the story even labels it as such. As a well-documented traducer of the adventure genre as a whole, it’s a little weird that I even bothered to play Heavy Rain in the first place, considering that my biggest complaints about the title (namely, t...

World Cup Of Pool (DS)

World Cup Of Pool review (DS)

Reviewed on March 31, 2010

Unfortunately, the inclusion of sixty stellar pros boils down to displaying a still photo before each match, because the computer certainly doesn't play like any of those big names. It fails to execute smart safeties. It will ignore tailor-made combinations that would result in a win. Worst of all, it simply flubs easy, straight-in shots. I've never seen it come close to running a rack.

The Red Star (PSP)

The Red Star review (PSP)

Reviewed on March 30, 2010

The Red Star stands on its own, with or without the name and skin based on the comics. It just doesn't stand very well.

Fret Nice (PlayStation 3)

Fret Nice review (PS3)

Reviewed on March 28, 2010

This exhausting ingenuity may be the most memorable piece of Fret Nice, but it doesn't make the game alone. It gets help from colorful landscapes that beg for exploration. Neither, though, is the gimmick what breaks it. That's left to control decisions that have nothing to do with the guitar.

Bakutotsu Kijuutei: Baraduke II (Arcade)

Bakutotsu Kijuutei: Baraduke II review (ARC)

Reviewed on March 28, 2010

It's never been much of a secret that most arcade titles were intentionally hard as hell, all in the name of profit. Thus, the given nickname by arcade dwellers: quarter munchers. Baraduke, by Namco, was one such game from the 1980s. The object in this title is to go from one floor to the next, which you do by destroying purple aliens, the Octy. It's actually much harder than it sounds, due to the random and chaotic nature of the game. Basically, everything, from every corner of the screen, is o...

Dragon Age: Origins - Awakening (PC)

Dragon Age: Origins - Awakening review (PC)

Reviewed on March 27, 2010

When you install Awakening and start a new game, you're presented with the choice of either playing the original Origins campaign or the new expansion. Unfortunately it's a pretty easy choice to make.

Fragile Dreams: Farewell Ruins of the Moon (Wii)

Fragile Dreams: Farewell Ruins of the Moon review (WII)

Reviewed on March 27, 2010

Given time, you will eventually adapt to all of those quirks. Even when you've grown accustomed to the overly simplistic and repetitive combat, the awkward flashlight and camera controls and the ridiculous inventory system, however, Fragile Dreams can surprise you with just how obtuse it can really be. As you progress through the game, you'll find yourself forced to backtrack to locations where you've already been (after finding the proper key, of course) or you'll have to chase a mischievous prankster around an amusement park or whatever else the game throws your way.

Super Mario Bros. 3 (NES)

Super Mario Bros. 3 review (NES)

Reviewed on March 27, 2010

Super Mario Bros. 3 is the third installment in the Mario series, and one of his best. You take control of Mario in this platformer and are set out to save a princess from the Koopa Kids. You travel and explore eight diverse and unique worlds, with tons of new features. This is also one of Marios best adventures hes has ever been on, and a very fun one to last.

Darwinia+ (Xbox 360)

Darwinia+ review (X360)

Reviewed on March 26, 2010

With the introduction of spiders, things rapidly became more difficult. I had to rely on grenades to damage them, as they seemed immune to laser fire. Making that difficult was their habit of suddenly pouncing at my unit when within range. Until I'd really enhanced my grenade-throwing range and could blast them before they noticed my squad's presence, they were able to decimate squads with ease.

Metro 2033 (Xbox 360)

Metro 2033 review (X360)

Reviewed on March 25, 2010

Developed by 4A Games, a splinter of Ukranian studio GSC Game World, Metro 2033 is nothing like Stalker. That's one of the most important things to remember when entering its dismal tunnel network, or sprinting across its harsh, destroyed surface world. It may share some pretty heavy thematic elements with that series, and it might emerge from the same brains, but Metro 2033 is its own game: more bombastic shoot-'em-up than slow-burning, open-world survival.

Chronicles of Mystery: The Tree of Life (PC)

Chronicles of Mystery: The Tree of Life review (PC)

Reviewed on March 23, 2010

The Tree of Life lays the groundwork for an interesting revelation, keeps you busy with roundabout nonsense, and then glosses over the juiciest part. When the time comes to reveal true identities and lay motivations bare, the conspirators drone on with obtuse conversations that fail to explain the whole truth of the matter.

Red Steel 2 (Wii)

Red Steel 2 review (WII)

Reviewed on March 23, 2010

When the swordplay comes together as intended, there's no feeling better. You'll face a lot of thugs as you seek your resolution. They come at you from all sides wielding swords of their own, or guns or hammers or protective shields. Routing the evil gang members feels satisfying because you're not simply swinging the Wii Remote around in place of furious 'A' button mashing. The speed and actual motion of each swing is reflected on-screen with surprising precision and with in-game consequences.

Thexder Neo HD (PlayStation 3)

Thexder Neo HD review (PS3)

Reviewed on March 22, 2010

Enemies come at you fast, but luckily your laser beam has homing capabilities, so you needn’t even aim to bring them down. Being successful is more a function of edging forward gradually enough to bring the enemies onto the screen slowly enough for the beam to melt the bad guys before they reach your face.

The Saboteur (PlayStation 3)

The Saboteur review (PS3)

Reviewed on March 21, 2010

The Saboteur was the last game Pandemic Studios produced before they were shut down. Pandemic certainly went out with a bang, as the Saboteur has you blowing up more Nazis than you probably ever have before.

Ratchet & Clank Future: A Crack in Time (PlayStation 3)

Ratchet & Clank Future: A Crack in Time review (PS3)

Reviewed on March 21, 2010

Ratchet and Clank Future: A Crack in Time is the third Ratchet and Clank game produced for the Playstation 3, and also the conclusion to the Future storyline. It boasts almost Pixar-esque quality graphics combined with the same styled gameplay that the franchise has been built on. It is definitely worth playing, but doesn't do a whole lot to differentiate itself from the other Ratchet and Clank games. The charm from previous games returns and the witty and clever dialogue will have you laughing ...

Heavy Rain (PlayStation 3)

Heavy Rain review (PS3)

Reviewed on March 21, 2010

A term that some may use to describe Heavy Rain is "Interactive Drama". In fact, that is a term that the Developers have used, and have even included that phrase in one of the unlockable trophies included in the game. Heavy Rain really does embody this expression, as it truly does blur the line between film and game.

Bladestorm: The Hundred Years' War (PlayStation 3)

Bladestorm: The Hundred Years' War review (PS3)

Reviewed on March 21, 2010

Bladestorm, while not technically or visually stunning, manages to bring simplistic gameplay and a degree of customization together in order to create a fresh game. Bladestorm is by no means perfect, but allows for a large amount of playtime, albeit with a bit of grinding along the way, that will keep you playing all the way until the terribly unsatisfactory ending.

Assassin's Creed II (Xbox 360)

Assassin's Creed II review (X360)

Reviewed on March 21, 2010

An improvement is typically something that one looks for in a sequel, and if improvement is what you are looking for in Assassin's Creed II, then you will not be disappointed. Assassin's Creed II takes every part of Assassin's Creed, and ramps it up a notch. In fact, there is no area that the sequel regressed in, and progression is seen every time you turn the corner. With that being said there are still flaws, or annoyances as they truly turn out to be.
