Red Faction: Guerrilla (Xbox 360)

Red Faction: Guerrilla review (X360)

Reviewed on June 12, 2009

A vast game of utterly mad possibilities. There's not enough of a culture for Guerrilla to be proclaimed a true masterpiece, or even a revolution, but it's not a long way off. Rarely has open-world mayhem been so invigorating, so satisfying and hilarious. Far and away the best in the series so far, Guerrilla is the absolute statement of Volition's explosive plan - and Red Faction would struggle to return to its linear routes after this outstanding effort.

A Fading Melody (Xbox 360)

A Fading Melody review (X360)

Reviewed on June 12, 2009

From the nightmarish forest landscape and encroaching darkness, right down to the shrill beeps of the heart monitor that can be heard between levels, A Fading Melody is a triumph of intelligent, integrated design.

Super Black Onyx (NES)

Super Black Onyx review (NES)

Reviewed on June 12, 2009

Powerful, mysterious, doing-not-saying characters are a cliche in computer RPG's, but games like that are sadly rare. Super Black Onyx (SBO) is such a game. Released in Japan but using English characters, SBO relies largely on the graphic talents of Roger Dean, who designed many of Yes's and Asia's album covers, to cut through RPG red tape people take for granted. The story, you can guess from the title: there's an Onyx to find. It's up a boggle-box of a sixty-level first-person maze. But don't ...

Hoosier City - Assault of the Orcs (PC)

Hoosier City - Assault of the Orcs review (PC)

Reviewed on June 12, 2009

Someone finally snapped and sent the Earth into nuclear apocalypse. Cities were blasted into oblivion, civilization collapsed, and humanity was all but wiped out. The few people yet clinging to life are gathered in three habitable domes that provide protection from the irradiated wastelands outside. It is in this bleak, dismal world that Hoosier City is set...and it doesn't matter because outside of the screen telling the backstory, the game doesn't actually do anything with this theme. The back...

Up (Xbox 360)

Up review (X360)

Reviewed on June 11, 2009

Fortunately, cooperative play alleviates some of that. Two people can pick up controllers and it's easy to join or leave a game with the press of a button. That allows a parent or elder sibling to save the day if kids are becoming too frustrated. It's a great way for a parent to connect with his or her game-loving offspring without having to spend forever figuring out how things work. It also means that the game could become the perfect choice for a few hours of fun when new visitors enter your humble abode.

Amnesia (Apple II)

Amnesia review (APP2)

Reviewed on June 11, 2009

If you create a public scene or break any laws (such as sleeping in public or leaving the early-game hotel room naked), odds are you'll wind up arrested. Humorously, you get to play through your final days in a jail cell, choosing what your final meal is, what denomination of priest speaks to you before death and whether you die by lethal injection or firing squad — just one more of the many things I loved about the writing in this game.

Quest for Glory II: Trial By Fire (PC)

Quest for Glory II: Trial By Fire review (PC)

Reviewed on June 11, 2009

Quest for Glory II is the second in a series of graphical adventure games with an RPG twist. For the most part, it's an adventure in classic Sierra style - visit locations, collect items, solve puzzles - but an RPG element is added in letting you play as either a fighter, magic-user or thief. You'll also be given a set of familiar statistics including strength, dexterity, hit points and a number of skills. The end result is a good hybrid that gives you a reason to play the game through three tim...

Quest for Glory I: So You Want To Be A Hero (PC)

Quest for Glory I: So You Want To Be A Hero review (PC)

Reviewed on June 11, 2009

Originally known as Hero's Quest and later renamed to Quest for Glory, this game is the first in another Sierra ''Quest'' adventure series, with a significant twist: the Quest for Glory games combine RPG elements into the adventures. You play the role of an adventurer striving to become a Hero by taking on monsters, a band of brigands and an ogre witch in the otherwise beautiful valley of Spielburg. In many ways, the game is like the other old Sierra adventure series: you walk around, you type c...

DreamWeb (PC)

DreamWeb review (PC)

Reviewed on June 10, 2009

The cyberpunk genre is rarely as well presented as it should be, partially because most developers themselves haven’t the slightest idea how to present it in the first place. Sometimes, they’d opt for an overly-complex ‘hardcore’ approach, confusing newcomers with countless rules, ideas and staples of the niche genre, thinking that we should, as fans, already know what the hell they are talking about. Failing that, the other side of the coin that tries to weave a good futuristic story but fails ...

Sonic the Hedgehog Chaos (Sega Master System)

Sonic the Hedgehog Chaos review (SMS)

Reviewed on June 08, 2009

Why another Sonic release on the antiquated Master System? The 16-bit Sonic series was selling the Mega Drive faster than you can say “Nintendon’t”, and the SMS barely tapped the dominating NES. However its strong user base in Europe and Brazil still flourished, and with games being made on the technically equivalent Game Gear handheld, there’s no reason not to release another Sonic on the SMS.

Mana Khemia: Alchemists of Al-Revis (PlayStation 2)

Mana Khemia: Alchemists of Al-Revis review (PS2)

Reviewed on June 08, 2009

The PlayStation 2 has been a very prolific platform for RPGs during its lifecycle, and even long after the PS3's release, a select few developers continue to service it. Gust is among them, choosing the PS2 for Mana Khemia (2007 in Japan, 2008 in the US). An alchemy-themed game in which gathering recipes and ingredients to create your own items, weapons and armour, Mana Khemia plays so similarly to the three Atelier Iris games that it's tempting to just consider it Atelier Iris 4 and be done wit...

Officers (PC)

Officers review (PC)

Reviewed on June 08, 2009

Officers is a fun toy. Every map is like a sandbox in which you can rain destruction upon the Nazis. Its key feature, huge battles, is both the best part of gameplay and the worst.

Steal Princess (DS)

Steal Princess review (DS)

Reviewed on June 08, 2009

Even though it's an interesting game, Steal Princess's overly complex, touchy controls tarnish the experience, and map creation is a spectacular failure. On the other hand, the game does feature excruciatingly dull story scenes mixed among its 150 stages!

Beat 'Em & Eat 'Em (Atari 2600)

Beat 'Em & Eat 'Em review (A2600)

Reviewed on June 07, 2009

You know, I was trying to come up with a good intro for this. Something interesting, like a little descriptive scene or narrative. The usual. But I can’t. Not for a game like this, anyway. One can only stare slack-jawed at that blank page and that ever-blinking cursor for so long. Besides, the box sums it up better than anything I could have come with:

PDC World Championship Darts 2009 (Wii)

PDC World Championship Darts 2009 review (WII)

Reviewed on June 06, 2009

2009 has made some big steps up from its previous version, but that everything about the game is so budget that it hardly looks any different from the initial outing made two years ago on the PS2 isn’t something that makes it an easy recommendation.

UFC 2009 Undisputed review (PS3)

UFC Undisputed has the makings of true MMA bliss, but its clunky, lifeless career mode and lackluster online play will only keep you occupied for so long.

X-COM: Enforcer (PC)

X-COM: Enforcer review (PC)

Reviewed on June 05, 2009

I’m in a habit of paying no attention to Steam’s frequent pop-up advertisements that bring to light the various discounts the service offers on games I generally don’t care about, but the announcement that all five titles in the renowned X-COM series would be available for something like fifteen dollars was difficult to ignore. That purchase was supposed to be my gateway to a series that I’ve been meaning to catch up on for quite some time, given that it’s rooted in a genre I’m fond of: t...

UFC 2009 Undisputed (Xbox 360)

UFC 2009 Undisputed review (X360)

Reviewed on June 05, 2009

In Undisputed, the tendency is toward striking battles, rather than toward what that particular fighter is actually most comfortable with or known for. Fortunately, this flaw won’t matter much for most gamers because the average MMA fan is still far more enamoured of fisticuffs and the sudden violence of knockouts than of rolling for submissions, which presents a decisively more subtle savagery. Besides, as with most one-on-one contests, the main draw is beating up on friends – not the computer.

Bejeweled 2 (PlayStation 3)

Bejeweled 2 review (PS3)

Reviewed on June 04, 2009

PopCap Games first developed Bejeweled and released it in the Flash format back in 2001. Since then, the title has appeared on nearly every gaming platform known to man, ranging from the PC to mobile phones, the Xbox 360 and now the PlayStation Network store. Predictably, it plays the same on the PlayStation 3 as it did on Xbox Live Arcade, on the PC and—well, you get the idea.
