Brothers in Arms: Road to Hill 30 (PC)

Brothers in Arms: Road to Hill 30 review (PC)

Reviewed on July 26, 2010

I am a big fan of the genre of World War II FPS since Wolfenstein 3D, so I expected a great fun ride from this game, especially considering enthusiastic reviews. Instead this was a survival horror of intensively irritating dumbness and it all looked so bright in the beginning.

Arma II: Combined Operations (PC)

Arma II: Combined Operations review (PC)

Reviewed on July 26, 2010

When taken together, the campaign and single-player scenario missions offer a lot of variety. At their best, they show Bohemia Interactive's flair for the dramatic. During a commando raid to rescue hostages held in a factory, you come down a hill overlooking a local village. Friendly forces are launching an assault on the village, which ends up sending a swarm of enemy troops in your direction. What could have been a simple shootout is situated in a larger context. You get front row seats, as it were. Bohemia manages this like no one else.

Alien Swarm (PC)

Alien Swarm review (PC)

Reviewed on July 25, 2010

Alien Swarm has drawn numerous comparisons to Left 4 Dead, and not without reason. They’re both products of Valve, and they both place four players in the situation of having to fend off waves of very ugly (and very mindless) enemies, often to satisfyingly gory results. But whereas L4D’s team dynamics were its selling point, there really isn’t much more to Alien Swarm than what’s on the surface, and that’s not a bad thing at all. Sometimes it’s fun to just arm yourself with a giant minigun and pretend you’re a marine from Aliens. Sometimes it’s fun to go on a simple bug hunt.

Broken Sword: The Sleeping Dragon (PC)

Broken Sword: The Sleeping Dragon review (PC)

Reviewed on July 24, 2010

Recently, a Director’s Cut of the first game has been released on both the iPhone and the Wii. Both versions prove what a remarkable title that still is, despite feeling somewhat aged now. But for me, The Sleeping Dragon will always mark the pinnacle of the series: despite some shaky mechanics, it’s the one I’d be least willing to let slip from memory.

Fantasy Wars (PC)

Fantasy Wars review (PC)

Reviewed on July 21, 2010

When it comes to difficulty in videogames, my feelings often appear contradictory. I frequently grow impatient or bored with oppressively difficult action titles like Contra, but when I play games that actually require me to think, I revel in the challenge. I suppose it’s a matter of interest and ability. I enjoy strategy because I know I’m smart and so seek to prove that against anyone daring enough to try me. That’s why I’m so addicted to Fantasy Wars. It leaves very little room ...

Pong is lionized. Space Invaders is romanticized. Asteroids is marginalized.

Left 4 Dead 2 (PC)

Left 4 Dead 2 review (PC)

Reviewed on July 15, 2010

I've never understood video game boycotts. From Diablo 3 to Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2, a small segment of fanatic gamers responds to seemingly any sequel with rage normally found in only the worst fanboys. Left 4 Dead 2's recent release was yet another surrounded by threats from gamers angry that developer Valve was releasing a sequel so quickly. After spending countless hours filling forums with post after post listing a litany of reasons why they weren’t going t...

The Silver Lining: Episode 1 - What is Decreed Must Be review (PC)

Reviewed on July 12, 2010

The Silver Lining: What Is Decreed Must Be is aimed squarely at hardcore King's Quest lovers who want to see the series given a proper send-off. As a loving fan service, there's quite a bit to like, but as a game, it stumbles rather badly.

Armada 2526 review (PC)

Reviewed on July 11, 2010

Armada 2526 is a hard game. It doesn’t have a plot, but it does have a big, wide open galaxy to explore and twelve distinct races to base your own story on.

Wheelman (PC)

Wheelman review (PC)

Reviewed on July 09, 2010

In so many ways, The Wheelman is a fitting title to mark the final major product released by the now defunct Midway Games. Riddled with references to the gems of the company’s past, the game has all of the classic trappings – good and bad – of Midway’s massive library of releases. What that means for players is that you’ll occasionally smile when you see “SPYHNTR” or “JOUST” on a license plate, but for the better part of the game, you’ll have to suffer through an incredibly dull experie...

System Shock (PC)

System Shock review (PC)

Reviewed on July 08, 2010

It's true that the interface is clumsy, with far too much dragging and dropping going on. But away from the peripherals, here remains a game of survival horror resource management, careful RPG stat-planning, and basic but tactical first-person action. It weaves these threads together into something so wholly representative of developer Looking Glass' style that, even above Ultima Underworld and Thief, you'd point to System Shock as the prime example of what this wonderful studio created.

Sam & Max: They Stole Max's Brain! (PC)

Sam & Max: They Stole Max's Brain! review (PC)

Reviewed on July 03, 2010

Here, he needs to disturb an alliance between previous chapter’s villains using chicanery and random vandalism, while disembodied Max, his brain kept snug in a sealed jar, complete with electronic voice box and L.E.D mouth, antagonizes all around him out of sheer boredom.

Jets'n'Guns review (PC)

Reviewed on July 02, 2010

"(...)a direct link to a TV channel that will buy and broadcast the most entertaining massacres that happen around you. On a signpost on the way to the space-sector you can read: "No nuclear weapon tests between 08.00 and 16.00". It is probably too much to ask for".

Gang Wars (Arcade)

Gang Wars review (ARC)

Reviewed on July 02, 2010

What's harder to explain are the numerous other problems. Gang Wars is characterized by slack issues that have grown increasingly noticeable since the Prisoners of War codebase it probably leveraged. Animation is stilted and choppy with not enough frames per attack, and the frames loop through at incongruent rates, one player throwing a punch and back to normal stance while the other still has his head careened back after a blow to the jaw. GW excels relative to its peers at providing a variety of different attackers, but negates that success by stacking them anyway – the same sprite may only be used once, but when it is you’ll fight three of the same guy at the same time anyway.

Starcraft (Mac)

Starcraft review (MAC)

Reviewed on June 27, 2010

This is Starcraft. This is a game that can still inspire excitement and interest more than a decade after its initial release. It does this despite having outdated graphics, without including branching paths or moral choices, and with nary a trophy achievement in sight. Starcraft can raise a lot of questions about what’s really important in a game.

Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic II - The Sith Lords review (PC)

I knew a game-master once who - apart from being incredibly good at convincing completely uninterested players to try role playing games - was well known for being good at telling stories.

Slime Master review (X68K)

Reviewed on June 13, 2010

Slime Master stars a lovely blonde lass with perky breasts. Since the developers failed to give her a name, I'll call her Pamela. She's a shy one, requiring not one but two bedroom visits before getting naked.

Phantasmagoria (PC)

Phantasmagoria review (PC)

Reviewed on May 14, 2010

Let me take you back to the past, the year 1996 to be more precise. At that time FMV games were all the rage, even if they took an absurd amount of space when compared to other games of the era. One in particular took space of biblical proportions, spanning over 7 CD's.
