Thunder Force AC (Arcade)

Thunder Force AC review (ARC)

Reviewed on March 18, 2011

Thunder Force AC got things backwards. It is a book based on a movie. It went straight to DVD, only to be released in theaters the next year.

Dragon Age 2 review (PC)

Reviewed on March 17, 2011

I can't help but shake the feeling that this is the Knights of the Old Republic 2 of this generation - an ambitious sequel marred by technical complications.

Osmos (PC)

Osmos review (PC)

Reviewed on March 16, 2011

Hemisphere Games put some real thought into this game. They didn't want you walking out thinking it was a loveless affair. Each new situation adds to the addiction and stimulates your gray matter and your gall, putting together a solid plan on the fly and having the brass put it into effect, even when it seems you may fail.

Thunder Force (Sharp X1)

Thunder Force review (SX1)

Reviewed on March 14, 2011

Your ship moves constantly — your input is simply to determine what direction it's moving in at any given time. Making all this movement a bit tricky are the enemies, who tend to constantly swarm your ship as you aimlessly work through each level attempting to figure out exactly what you have to do in order to make it to the next. Thunder Force was essentially a stripped-down version of my least favorite part of my least favorite Genesis game in this series.

Poker Night at the Inventory review (PC)

Reviewed on March 14, 2011

In the end, Poker Night at the Inventory is nothing more than a promotion for Team Fortress 2 featuring a cheap poker game.

Barkley, Shut Up and Jam: Gaiden, Chapter 1 of the Hoopz Barkley SaGa review (PC)

Reviewed on March 13, 2011

To the word. Seriously, that's crazy (kinda, but makes sense if you've played the game). Anyways.

Trine (PC)

Trine review (PC)

Reviewed on March 13, 2011

It's a good thing that trine is only a handful of hours in length because while it definitely is a clever take on the puzzle platform genre, there just isn't enough to really justify a full length game. The combat is frequently tedious, and the backgrounds often feel unpleasant to look at, being overly dark though quite lush. Get in, try out the clever ideas, and get out before you tire. And you will tire.

Speedball II: Brutal Deluxe (Amiga)

Speedball II: Brutal Deluxe review (AMIGA)

Reviewed on March 12, 2011

So there are eight directions on the joystick, with the four clicking on and off. There's one fire-button. You can hold it down for different lengths of time before you release it.

Vigilante (Arcade)

Vigilante review (ARC)

Reviewed on March 12, 2011

Somewhere in between things got goofy. Somehow between the two titans, the earth and the heavens, there were noxious fumes in the atmosphere. Some time in 1988, there was Vigilante.

The Witcher (PC)

The Witcher review (PC)

Reviewed on March 10, 2011

The Witcher, based on a well known series of polish fantasy books by Andrzej Sapkowski, takes a more "realistic" route in portraying the continent of Temeria, and its denizens. Geralt, our platinum-haired hero is one of these witchers, a monster hunter with amazing combat prowess, insane reflexes, alchemical abilities and magical powers surpassing those of mortal men.

Lylian: Episode 1: Paranoid Friendship (PC)

Lylian: Episode 1: Paranoid Friendship review (PC)

Reviewed on March 10, 2011

Some time into her stay, she mysteriously finds her restraints loose and door unlocked. Free to explore the bleak and darkened corridors of the institute in search of donuts and a kidnapped Bob, the child encounters many bizarre phenomena. Crazed nurses wander the halls, determined to kick the girl into submission, while donut-stuffed fatties try their best to crush her beneath their obese weight.

Who's That Flying?! (PC)

Who's That Flying?! review (PC)

Reviewed on March 01, 2011

The story begins with you – Guardian of Earth – standing trial at the Galactic Council of Space Justice for allowing the planet to be invaded. It isn't particularly deep - it doesn't need to be - but the trial scenes that intersperse the levels are well-made and humorous.

Recettear: An Item Shop's Tale (PC)

Recettear: An Item Shop's Tale review (PC)

Reviewed on February 28, 2011

Everyone salutes the knights in mythril armor, the adept mages and wise wizards, the swift thieves and rogues, and dual-sword wielding rangers of the elvish variety. They praise the questing heroes because they had the best weapons and armor and gained just enough levels to pummel that malevolent otherworldy being who threatened to enslave humanity.

Halo Zero (PC)

Halo Zero review (PC)

Reviewed on February 27, 2011

I remember on April Fools Day 2005 when Gamespot joked about Halo 3, stating that it's rumored to be a RTS. They probably didn't fool anyone, but it wasn't long before a Halo game that didn't stick to the series' traditional first-person view would be released. Although it was never “officially” released, Halo Zero quickly became one of the most popular Halo mods, despite being a 2D side-scroller similar to the Half-Life 2 mod: Codename: Gordon.

One Chance (PC)

One Chance review (PC)

Reviewed on February 26, 2011

One Chance is a bad game for obvious reasons. The graphics are poor, the music is repetitive, the guy walks slowly, the story is silly, player interaction is minimal, and victory is achieved through repetition instead of mastery. Its claim to fame is that you only have one chance unless you game the system.

Canabalt (PC)

Canabalt review (PC)

Reviewed on February 24, 2011

I view people who subscribe to the holy book of Canabalt the same way that Orson Scott Card intended readers to view Xenocide's Qing-Jao: as obsessive and deranged failures, compulsively tracing lines in wood until they realize they've accomplished nothing. Then they die.

Take 'em Out (Amiga)

Take 'em Out review (AMIGA)

Reviewed on February 18, 2011

The intriguing story of police-cadet Murphy is not told in this game. In fact, the direct writing is almost non-existent. There is a dire tune being played on the loading screens, along with an equally dire and business-like voice reminding you to “fire when ready” at the shooting range. But beyond this, there's absolutely no context offered whatsoever. You are special forces. And you are shooting lawbreakers until there is no one left. The game then prompts “no one left – moving on to new targe...

Torchlight (PC)

Torchlight review (PC)

Reviewed on February 16, 2011

Your first step into Torchlight will put to rest your worries or quell your doubts. The rich art style with appropriately used earthy colors and a darker, grimmer setting tell you that this is a far cry from Fate's somewhat confused atmosphere. Where the latter is cartoony and a tad happy-go-lucky forced into the same bed with violence, blood-letting and terror, Torchlight is consistently dark and moody. It doesn't pretend to be My First Diablo Clone, but knows what players are looking for. It s...
