Scarface: The World is Yours (PlayStation 2)

Scarface: The World is Yours review (PS2)

Reviewed on January 07, 2012

Adding difficulty is important to any game, but turning up the frustration factor too high with little payoff can cause anyone to burn out. With little variety, there's little to help cool the tension. You'll either tough out the frustration or spend your time on something more worthwhile. Either that, or you'll just play Scarface again and pretend it ends after you've secured the first half of Miami.

Cruise Missile (Atari 2600)

Cruise Missile review (A2600)

Reviewed on December 31, 2011

I realize Atari 2600 titles were repetitive by nature, but Cruise Missile takes it to the next painful level. Repetition works for addictive titles like River Raid. For games [like Cruise Missile] rife with annoyance and irritating controls, you relive the same broken elements over and over.

Akane the Kunoichi (Xbox 360)

Akane the Kunoichi review (X360)

Reviewed on December 30, 2011

It all boils down to your ability to make use of very basic commands like jumping and attacking. Time your presses carefully and rule the day, but if you don't you can't blame unresponsive controls or faulty collision detection. If you think about it, it's so simple. Just hit two different buttons at the right times and you'll survive. It may be that simple, but it sure as hell isn't that easy.

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.

TaleSpin (NES)

TaleSpin review (NES)

Reviewed on December 27, 2011

In the first level, enemy planes try to ram you as you fly over large expanses of water dotted with oil platforms. Halfway through, you confront the infamous air pirate Don Karnage, who is hell-bent on ruining your day. You can't beat him yet, so you must evade his shots while pressing forward until he gives up.

Assassin's Creed (PlayStation 3)

Assassin's Creed review (PS3)

Reviewed on December 24, 2011

It's unfortunate that you have to chew through the boredom to get to the meaty parts. Assassin's Creed has very about it that's exciting or worthwhile. What few scenes that are are sandwiched between tedious activities and repetition. Without these activities, the game is too short; with them, the thrill is so intermittent that it's difficult to stay excited even when you get to the meaty parts.

Bloody Good Time (Xbox 360)

Bloody Good Time review (X360)

Reviewed on December 22, 2011

Bloody Good Time gets a hearty endorsement as a unique and very affordable take on the deathmatch idea. Between its sense of humour and the variety of strategies available, there's a lot of room for this to be a truly great game.

Golden Axe II review (GEN)

Reviewed on December 19, 2011

You're also bound to encounter up to a staggering... let me compose myself for a second... four enemies at once! That's, like, leagues more than the usual three from the predecessor!!

Berzerk (Atari 2600)

Berzerk review (A2600)

Reviewed on December 18, 2011

Berzerk is a relic. It's not a project game--nothing on Atari 2600 is or ever was meant to be. It's an appetizer, something you pop in before you start a gaming session to get you pumped for more in-depth shooting.

Red Dead Revolver (PlayStation 2)

Red Dead Revolver review (PS2)

Reviewed on December 13, 2011

Read Dead Revolver's style will mesmerize and the intermittent fun will keep you, and maybe that's what hurts the most. I know I've said this before, but sometimes the worst 'bad games' are the ones you think you're going to love. Once the spell it has over you breaks, so does your heart.

Saints Row 2: Corporate Warfare (Xbox 360)

Saints Row 2: Corporate Warfare review (X360)

Reviewed on December 10, 2011

The lack of missions combined with the dull ending leaves you hungering, but not as terribly as before. The additions are more worth your money, and this DLC doesn't feel like a cleverly disguised advertisement for an upcoming Volition title. Ultimately, what should decide whether or not you purchase Corporate Warfare is how much you enjoyed Saints Row 2.

Metroid (NES)

Metroid review (NES)

Reviewed on December 09, 2011

To think that 70% of this game, so familiar to so many players, occupies exactly 0 bytes of data. The glimpses I see of Real Zebes break a spell indeed... It is one thing to understand how a game works, but it is another entirely to see how it work.

Deus Ex: Human Revolution (PC)

Deus Ex: Human Revolution review (PC)

Reviewed on December 06, 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.

Neverwinter Nights 2 is a mixed bag, like a surprisingly tasty diet chicken soup.

Saints Row 2: Ultor Exposed (Xbox 360)

Saints Row 2: Ultor Exposed review (X360)

Reviewed on December 05, 2011

Ultor Exposed crams a lot of potential greatness in its small package, yet forgets the most important element. Even the presence of pornstar Tera Patrick doesn't save the painfully generic and tame--the last word you would ever want to associate with a Saints Row experience--missions. All three of them.

Quake Arena Arcade (Xbox 360)

Quake Arena Arcade review (X360)

Reviewed on December 04, 2011

It may seem strange to criticize the game for its single-player considering Quake III built its entire legacy on multiplayer, but it was this version’s one and only chance to prevent itself from being redundant. Instead, redundant is exactly what Quake Arena Arcade is.

Saints Row: The Third (Xbox 360)

Saints Row: The Third review (X360)

Reviewed on December 04, 2011

Not only is Saints Row: The Third more efficient, but it handles better. Vehicles drive more smoothly, animation is more fluid and takes full advantage of high definition, and each scenario stands on its own. I'll gladly trade the ability to wear a tie with my hoodie for quality activities, less repetition, and improved mechanics any day.

Assassin's Creed: Revelations review (X360)

Reviewed on December 03, 2011

When the game ends, we’re right where we started, only now we have a general idea of where the writers will take us in the next entry. Christ, it’s like Dragon Age II all over again.
