The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim (PC)

The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim review (PC)

Reviewed on February 27, 2012

The main plotline is haunted by a sense of wonder and is graced by many (scripted) scenes that are bound to be remembered as some of the most memorable scenes in gaming: the first dragon hunt at the Whiterun guard tower; the reading of the Elder Scroll on the mountaintop; the dragon trapping in Dragonreach; the greeting and cheering of a dozen flying dragons after the final battle.

Dino Rex (Arcade)

Dino Rex review (ARC)

Reviewed on February 27, 2012

Dino Rex is a cruel king. It's uncompromising in difficulty and relentless in its quest to rip you apart. Make one mistake and your opponent is all over you, cheesing you with the most difficult moves and connecting with ease. It makes itself look so easy that you wonder what you're doing wrong. Even as your dino struggles to its feet, the game continues and eventually concludes its merciless onslaught with an unbreakable chain of attacks.

Undercover Cops (Arcade)

Undercover Cops review (ARC)

Reviewed on February 26, 2012

Now, I don't know what the game's title, Undercover Cops, has to do with anything, since this Irem beat 'em up have zero situations that involve going under a different identity. Would've made for a humorous bonus stage, though. Thankfully, we don't play games in this particular genre for logic, and to my delight, the developers made sure to toss gamers into absurd circumstances, as has been noted with Mr. Fire Crotch.

Dear Esther (PC)

Dear Esther review (PC)

Reviewed on February 14, 2012

Dear Esther is barely a videogame by any conventional sense of the term and approaching it like one will lead to nothing but frustration. But if you're lucky, it clicks, not as a game but as a powerful and moving emotional experience.

Dragon Wars (Apple II)

Dragon Wars review (APP2)

Reviewed on February 07, 2012

Bard's Tale IV never came--in name, anyway. It took a couple times through Dragon Wars (DW) for me to see I'd found something as good.

Eternal Dagger (Apple II)

Eternal Dagger review (APP2)

Reviewed on January 22, 2012

The too-short Wizard's Crown series from Strategic Simulations, Inc. had a simple solution: quick combat where the computer ran everything and flashed text of your party's health every second. It left time for the actual story and exploration.

Unstoppable Gorg (PC)

Unstoppable Gorg review (PC)

Reviewed on January 19, 2012

Unstoppable Gorg is a tower defense game with a twist. Thatís a claim that any PR person might make about any new offering within the genre. In this case, though, itís an especially apt description because the twist is this: you twist things.

Star Wars: The Old Republic (PC)

Star Wars: The Old Republic review (PC)

Reviewed on January 18, 2012

The Old Republic is fun, tells some interesting stories, and offers players a vast amount of things to do. But the game still suffers from the same things that hold back all MMOs despite the class storylines and voice acting.

Defense Grid: The Awakening (PC)

Defense Grid: The Awakening review (PC)

Reviewed on January 05, 2012

Missions include special objectives that switch things up. Your options change depending on the scenario. In one case, you might be able to try a familiar stage with 99 waves instead of the usual 25 or 30. Elsewhere, you might be able to start with 20,000 resources but defeated enemies wonít drop any additional resources.

Unreal (PC)

Unreal review (PC)

Reviewed on December 31, 2011

As a first-person shooter, itís incredibly competent. Quake 2 might have had the tempo, and Half-Life the suspenseful pacing, but Unreal had the variety and the challenge. Its weapons drew criticism for feeling weak and weedy against the Skaarj oppressors, and itís a fair comment. They often do. But Iím sure thatís partly because the buggers are so tough, right from the start.

Quake (PC)

Quake review (PC)

Reviewed on December 31, 2011

Quake still absolutely stands up today. Its visuals might be pixellated, the environments often rather monochrome, as became the running gag. Yet the design of the world is tremendous, the levels balanced, structured and elegantly paced. The variety on display, despite the vast swathes of brown, dwarfs that of most modern games as well.

Quake II (PC)

Quake II review (PC)

Reviewed on December 31, 2011

Enemies dart and dodge, firing sprays of bullets in the final seconds of their lives, trying everything they can to bring you down, even if it means losing their own lives in the process. The range of enemies on display is perhaps the only area in which Quake II rivals the variety of its predecessor, too.

Planescape: Torment (PC)

Planescape: Torment review (PC)

Reviewed on December 31, 2011

Planescapeís fiction is perfect: it takes two intrinsic human fears, turns one on its head, and allows the other so much room to breathe. In Planescape, you play as a man who has already lost his entire memory, including that of his own identity, yet he can never escape this dreadful state.

Omikron: The Nomad Soul (PC)

Omikron: The Nomad Soul review (PC)

Reviewed on December 31, 2011

In The Nomad Soul, you donít play as any of the main characters. Instead, you play as all of them. Sort of. In fact, you play as a person playing a computer game, in which the player plays as a soul who can transfer between different bodies. Yes. And itís all absolutely merrily acknowledged by the game. None of this is real, it tells you. Itís just a game.

Fallout: New Vegas (PC)

Fallout: New Vegas review (PC)

Reviewed on December 29, 2011

Fans of the Fallout series should not even read this, since they already have the Collector' s edition of the game, signed by the development team itself, with a complimentary brahmin figure sagely looking at them.

Hard Reset (PC)

Hard Reset review (PC)

Reviewed on December 21, 2011

Hard Reset isn't quite able to live up to the high standards of mayhem set by Serious Sam and Painkiller, but it gets enough right to be a lot of wrist-snapping fun.

Fallout (PC)

Fallout review (PC)

Reviewed on December 18, 2011

Iíve found Fallout to be enormously irritating. Itís a grotesquely unfriendly game. Its interface is convoluted and confusing. Wandering through the desert early on will almost certainly get you killed by foes youíre totally unequipped to defeat... yet wandering through the desert is the only way to progress. You can complete some fairly menial tasks in order to become strong enough to tackle them, but - well - theyíre fairly menial.

Jurassic Park: The Game (PC)

Jurassic Park: The Game review (PC)

Reviewed on December 16, 2011

Fortunately, such exploration scenes are relatively few and far-between and there are no time constraints or other pressures rushing you along, so you won't be punished for awkwardness or missteps. What you will be punished for, at least once in awhile, is blowing the QTEs. But this actually turns out to be one of the game's highlights - watching the characters die in hilariously awful ways.

Deus Ex: Human Revolution (PC)

Deus Ex: Human Revolution review (PC)

Reviewed on December 07, 2011

When taken at face value and not as the latest entry of a venerable RPG franchise, DE:HR proves to be a very playable FPS with some RPG elements, in fact it stands out as probably the best of its kind this year.
