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 wonít 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 Ė 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 andówell, you get the idea.

Stalin vs. Martians (PC)

Stalin vs. Martians review (PC)

Reviewed on June 04, 2009

But anyway, the game is an RTS in the same way that margarine is butter, which is to say it's not, but it looks similar! The overhead camera is old hat to the genre. The piles of units marching together toward their objective is familiar. The hud, with its point-and-click interface and minimap, leaves no doubt. Any given screenshot tells the RTS story, but it's only when you play the game that you realize that something has gone horribly wrong.

Elite Forces: Unit 77 (DS)

Elite Forces: Unit 77 review (DS)

Reviewed on June 04, 2009

Considering that the enemies pose no threat, basic ammunition is unlimited, and you virtually trip over medkits around every corner, youíd think Elite Forces is an easy game, right? But it isnít, simply because things go wrong. Maybe Bill will die because he got caught in front of a gatling gun and the constant stream of bullets prevented him from using a medkit. Perhaps Kendra will decide on her own to move forward a couple of feet and detonate a mine that T.K. was disabling. Weird flukes in the design and AI contradict Deep Silverís effort to keep the interface clean and intuitive, and above all else, Elite Forces strikes me as a very inconsistent game.

Terminator Salvation (PlayStation 3)

Terminator Salvation review (PS3)

Reviewed on June 04, 2009

At first, such encounters are thrilling because you don't know what's going on and it's easy to die. Any battle is epic. Then you learn how to utilize cover and you discover that you can basically just draw fire from behind a barrier while your allies shoot everyone from behind. That strategy works most of the time and when it doesn't, that only means that the roles have reversed. You're never required to do anything more mentally challenging than sneak and shoot.

Tony Hawk's Pro Skater 3 (PlayStation)

Tony Hawk's Pro Skater 3 review (PSX)

Reviewed on June 03, 2009

Tony Hawkís is probably one of the most ubiquitous franchises of the last decade. Itís appeared on every format made since ollie-ing into the PlayStation park in 1999, and when each game is designed to be built better than the last, playing this eight-year old title is like skating backwards into a time machine.

Super Robot Taisen OG Saga: Endless Frontier (DS)

Super Robot Taisen OG Saga: Endless Frontier review (DS)

Reviewed on June 03, 2009

RPGs are stereotyped as one of the more intellectual game genres, all about story and plot and meaning. Endless Frontier bucks this stereotype pretty hard. Itís a self-consciously dopey, disposable sort of story thatís little more than an excuse to string dungeons and boss encounters together. Much of the plotís appeal is meant to rest in its nature as a sly crossover that puts Namco x Capcom, Super Robot Taisen OG2, Super Robot Taisen alpha 3, Xenosaga, and many other games into a single ďmultiversalĒ setting.

Sacred 2: Fallen Angel (PlayStation 3)

Sacred 2: Fallen Angel review (PS3)

Reviewed on June 02, 2009

I have a rule called the FAQ rule. If I reach a point where I find myself checking FAQs to see how much longer a game goes on, then I know the game has outlived its welcome. In the case of Sacred 2: Fallen Angel, I hadnít done anything interesting, met any interesting characters, or even managed to become interested in my own character in over twenty hours of gameplay and I was nowhere near being done with the main quest.

Hired Guns: The Jagged Edge review (PC)

Reviewed on June 01, 2009

Iíve nothing against games being hard, but before you survive the first few initial outings, loot a few corpses and watch your teamís stats rise to the point where itís noticeable, youíll be spending a lot of time reloading old saves that took place before complete slaughters and eagle-eyed head shot levelled against you.

Neo Contra (PlayStation 2)

Neo Contra review (PS2)

Reviewed on June 01, 2009

After the dreadful Appaloosa game that had the word Contra slapped on it (C: The Contra Adventure), Shattered Soldier was a welcomed return to the series' roots. Bill Rizer reappeared as the main character, who was accompanied this time by a female cyborg, and both were thrown into side-scrolling badassery, filled with weird creatures, aliens, and high-tech Weapons of Epic Destruction (WED). When a game plops you into crazy situations, like being chased down a snowy mountain by a huge worm, figh...

inFAMOUS (PlayStation 3)

inFAMOUS review (PS3)

Reviewed on June 01, 2009

It all started with a bang. Or rather, it ended with one. Half of Empire City, gone in a fiery apocalypse. Buildings, roads, people, everything. The bomb left almost nothing behind, not even the bodies of its victims. Just the sickening stench of smoke and burned flesh. They were the lucky ones, though; they got to die quickly. The survivors were in for something much, much worse. Riots, chaos, rape, murder, the complete and utter breakdown of society as we know it. Itís been two weeks in...

Professor Heinz Wolff's Gravity (Wii)

Professor Heinz Wolff's Gravity review (WII)

Reviewed on June 01, 2009

The very existence of the sandbox levels leads me to believe that Deep Silver liked what theyíd come up with and assumed players would be intrigued enough to want to explore the world of Gravity further. So why, then, is there no puzzle editor? With Gravityís content as limited as it is, and with each of the challenges simple enough in basic design that anyone could make them given an appropriate tool kit, a true puzzle editor could have been this gameís saving grace. With online functionality, the possibilities could have been endless.

Space War Commander (PC)

Space War Commander review (PC)

Reviewed on May 31, 2009

Space War Commander is simple enough that it can be picked up and learned very quickly, and won't eat up your time with long-winded matches like other RTS games. The only thing really missing is multiplayer support, but even so Space War Commander is a superb time-killer

Star Trek D-A-C review (X360)

Reviewed on May 30, 2009

At its very best, D-A-C is a good online game with the potential to offer up some epic six-on-six space wars. But when Xbox Live is slow and you canít find a full game, all thatís left is an empty and lazy solo experience.

Leisure Suit Larry in the Land of the Lounge Lizards (PC)

Leisure Suit Larry in the Land of the Lounge Lizards review (PC)

Reviewed on May 28, 2009

Leisure Suit Larry (LSL,) despite notoriety after its first release was less disgusting and offensive than its sequels, most of which overused weak riffs on material from the original game anyway. It's surely one of Sierra's very best graphic adventures, as it doesn't take itself too seriously and goes beyond just some hapless forty-year-old's quest to lose his virginity. It pokes fun at the awkwardness we all felt during our teenage years and makes Larry a poor schlemeil who can't even do the b...

Laser Blast (Atari 2600)

Laser Blast review (A2600)

Reviewed on May 28, 2009

For years, I remembered Laser Blast (LB) as the game that I should've won, but I had to go to the bathroom. LB has an appealing, amusing concept. You are a UFO, elliptical and with windows spinning around the center. You must fire down at three ground cannons. You are also, apparently, the bad guys: your lasers are red, theirs blue. If you win, a new round appears. This goes on until you get a million points. You can get 270 points per round, which can take two to five seconds. Doing the ...

Rolling Thunder (NES)

Rolling Thunder review (NES)

Reviewed on May 27, 2009

By the time I'd gotten to about the third or fourth of the game's 10 levels, I was tempted to check my Nintendo to see if a slot for me to dump quarters into had magically appeared. By the time I'd gotten through a bit more than half the game, I was so frustrated and emotionally spent that for a minute I thought I still was married. And I wasn't even earning the admiration of other gamers like I would have been by putting myself through this anguish in an arcade ó I was alone, sitting at home and feeling about as opposite from however awesome "platinum awesome" might be as humanly possible.

Bionic Commando (Xbox 360)

Bionic Commando review (X360)

Reviewed on May 27, 2009

Development team GRIN, also responsible for Bionic Commando Rearmed, have created an immensely playable game. Unfortunately, it's not the fount of creative goodness that its predecessor was. Although the game is speckled with phenomenal moments, too much of Bionic Commando is spent casually running through empty cities.

Major Minor's Majestic March (Wii)

Major Minor's Majestic March review (WII)

Reviewed on May 26, 2009

Major Minor's Majestic March has an impressive pedigree. Its developer NanaOn-Sha, or more specifically musician Masaya Matsuura and artist Rodney Alan Greenblat, helped shape the rhythm game genre with iconic 90's releases PaRappa the Rapper and Um Jammer Lammy. The games stood out because of their quirky graphics, music, and plot. There was also an inherent charm to their main characters: a dog learning to bust rhymes and a lamb struggling for her grunge-guitar dreams. ...
