The Hardy Boys: The Hidden Theft (PC)

The Hardy Boys: The Hidden Theft review (PC)

Reviewed on November 25, 2008

To find the whole truth behind The Hidden Theft, the Hardy Boys must scour the town for clues, interview all the witnesses, and continuously think outside the box. But before the journey can begin, the pair has to get past Mom. She grounded them.

Agatha Christie: Peril at End House (PC)

Agatha Christie: Peril at End House review (PC)

Reviewed on November 25, 2008

Peril at End House is another of those “search and find” experiences so reminiscent of the puzzles in old issues of Highlights for Children. You're presented with a list of objects, then must locate them by carefully poring over a cluttered photograph. Within the context of this particular game, that simple approach actually works fairly well. It's easy to imagine a stereotypical sleuth doing the same thing with a magnifying glass in hand.

FIFA Soccer 09 (PC)

FIFA Soccer 09 review (PC)

Reviewed on November 23, 2008

Annually updated for pretty much as long as I can remember, it's always sat a little behind the Pro Evolution series in capturing what makes this most godlike of sports so magical. This year's – or, if you go by the date, next year's - update inches ever closer to realising its dream, but once again falls just short of the mark in a few areas.

Left 4 Dead (PC)

Left 4 Dead review (PC)

Reviewed on November 19, 2008

I can't quite believe that I find myself, just a few weeks on from Fallout 3, playing yet another game of such ferociously high quality. Left 4 Dead is astoundingly good fun, polished in all the right places, tense, atmospheric and relentlessly gruesome. As a single-player affair, it would have satisfied my old-school bloodlust just fine. In co-operative mode, the game's main selling point, it's to die for.

Planet of Lust (Amiga)

Planet of Lust review (AMIGA)

Reviewed on November 18, 2008

After the eye-melting monstrosities of SEX VIXENS FROM SPACE, Free Spirit apparently decided to hire an actual artist for this subsequent attempt to create an actual game. Unfortunately they must have been so busy wanking over the new graphics that they forgot to include those niggling little details like "puzzles," "plot," and "point."

Imperium Romanum: Emperor Expansion  (PC)

Imperium Romanum: Emperor Expansion review (PC)

Reviewed on November 16, 2008

Imperium Ronanum: Gold Edition is by no means a bad game. I believe it was built for newcomers to the genre, as everything from resource management to the interface is incredibly simplified. Regulars will still see some uncannily similarities to games they've played before, namely Glory of the Roman Empire. Make no mistake, though: This is not a typical strategy aimed at your average war-monger.

Out of this World (PC)

Out of this World review (PC)

Reviewed on November 15, 2008

The year is 1991. A young boy that will one day grow up into a roguish, jaw-droppingly handsome man - let's use the initials D.E - is home alone. At his side a single 5.14 inch black floppy disk which contained something new. Something different...

Half-Life 2 (PC)

Half-Life 2 review (PC)

Reviewed on November 13, 2008

Imagine the future. Not shiny metal and fluorescent lighting; not lightsabers and foreign planets. This is a disturbingly grounded future: today's world and today's ideals, painted black by the harsh brush of technological surrealism. A future where, day by day, life becomes a little more synonymous with survival.

Nancy Drew: The Haunting of Castle Malloy (PC)

Nancy Drew: The Haunting of Castle Malloy review (PC)

Reviewed on November 11, 2008

Nancy Drew can do everything. This adventure, her 19th game outing, gives her an opportunity to work as a wedding planner, chemist, musician, bartender, astronomer, mathematician, and shepherd. But of course, her most important role is always that of super sleuth. To completely unravel The Haunting of Castle Malloy, Nancy must decipher an intriguing blend of old world folklore and modern scientific mysteries before her friend's wedding is canceled for good!

World of Goo (PC)

World of Goo review (PC)

Reviewed on November 09, 2008

In this day and age, marking a game as “casual” is usually a kiss of death, forever putting it into the same genre as non-games like Brain Age, Wii Fit, and Wii Music and killing off any hope of being bought by a core gamer audience. In the eyes of many, casual “games” only sell to two types of people: clueless parents that buy them for their kids, and clueless non-gamers who will buy anything that’s popular. For the longest time, this has been the truth – any game that calls itself casual will ...

Strong Bad's Cool Game for Attractive People Episode 3: Baddest of the Bands (PC)

Strong Bad's Cool Game for Attractive People Episode 3: Baddest of the Bands review (PC)

Reviewed on November 09, 2008

It was somewhere around the middle of Baddest of the Bands that it became obvious the series was almost more sitcom than game. At the time, I was attempting to set a car on fire, so that I could take a picture of it for an album cover which I would use to win a contest to recruit celebrity judges. I needed celebrity judges to hold a benefit concert, raising money to repair my video game console. A worthy cause if ever there was one.

Sacred 2: Fallen Angel (PC)

Sacred 2: Fallen Angel review (PC)

Reviewed on November 07, 2008

This prequel to 2004 Diablo-clone Sacred seems to be suffering from an identity crisis. In attempting to combine in-depth role-playing with hack-and-slash action and odd, self-depreciating humour, Sacred 2 manages to miss the mark in all the key areas, emerging as a horrendously dull and needlessly fiddly release.

Lightning Warrior Raidy (PC)

Lightning Warrior Raidy review (PC)

Reviewed on November 07, 2008

But if you're expecting an amazing, old-school crawler experience like Wizardry or the more recent Etrian Odyssey like I was, well... This isn't it. Lightning Warrior Raidy is littered with a ton of flaws that make it a hard recommendation for all but the most desperate of dungeon crawler fans.

The Sims 2: Apartment Life (PC)

The Sims 2: Apartment Life review (PC)

Reviewed on November 05, 2008

Once you're happily—or unhappily, if art imitates life—dwelling within your humble abode, the differences don't necessarily stop. If you've moved into someone's apartment, they're not going to look kindly on you knocking down walls or making major renovations, so put such thoughts out of your head. Instead, you can focus on the usual things that have for so long been a staple of the series: interior decorating.

Trilby's Notes (PC)

Trilby's Notes review (PC)

Reviewed on November 03, 2008

I keep praising Ben Croshaw for his technical prowess, but, man, is Trilby's Notes one polished title. After two installments that frequently impressed but whose chinks betrayed their homemade origins, AGS developer and acclaimed smartass Croshaw has delivered a Trilby game that's wholly professional - and fun to play. Its storytelling choices render it not for everyone, but it's a grand showcase of independent programming.

Wow (PC)

Wow review (PC)

Reviewed on November 02, 2008

At first glace, it’s just an empty room. After moving around for a while, it remains an empty room. You will decide it is an empty room and is the epitome of awful .wad construction. You will be proved wrong. Against all odds, it manages to get worse. Worse than an empty room.

Fallout 3 (PC)

Fallout 3 review (PC)

Reviewed on November 02, 2008

Fallout 3 threw me completely off-balance. It took a while of playing to realise (not to mention a few "this is brilliant, right?" conversations), but the fact is inescapable: Bethesda's interpretation of this devastating nuclear wasteland is truly, monumentally astounding.

Spooky Spirits (PC)

Spooky Spirits review (PC)

Reviewed on October 31, 2008

I feel a little cheap not saying more about Spooky Spirits, but there isn't a whole lot more to say. And that's good; it adheres to the basics of its genre and provides challenging, logical puzzles and intuitive controls to solve them with, with nothing frilly or gimickey that tries to add depth.

Strong Bad's Cool Game for Attractive People Episode 2: Strong Badia the Free (PC)

Strong Bad's Cool Game for Attractive People Episode 2: Strong Badia the Free review (PC)

Reviewed on October 26, 2008

In essence, this game makes the entire first game feel like a lengthy tutorial, familiarizing you with the characters and the locations and the flow of gameplay. It was as much a learning experience for the developers as it was for the player. The game is a step in the right direction, a big one. It's full of hope for the future, bright with the knowledge that Telltale can actually handle the task of creating a compelling episodic series.

The Longest Journey (PC)

The Longest Journey review (PC)

Reviewed on October 25, 2008

What did we used to like about adventure games? I can't believe that it was the puzzles involving MacGyver-like intuition (combine the apple with the hair spray to get a flamethrower) nor the amazing graphical achievements (anyone else remember having to click on things just to get the game to tell you what the hell it was?). It's easy to believe, with the lack of adventure games out today, that genre outlived its welcome. At the same time, it's hard to completely buy this when games such as ...
