Bladestorm: The Hundred Years' War (PlayStation 3)

Bladestorm: The Hundred Years' War review (PS3)

Reviewed on March 21, 2010

Bladestorm, while not technically or visually stunning, manages to bring simplistic gameplay and a degree of customization together in order to create a fresh game. Bladestorm is by no means perfect, but allows for a large amount of playtime, albeit with a bit of grinding along the way, that will keep you playing all the way until the terribly unsatisfactory ending.

Assassin's Creed II (Xbox 360)

Assassin's Creed II review (X360)

Reviewed on March 21, 2010

An improvement is typically something that one looks for in a sequel, and if improvement is what you are looking for in Assassin's Creed II, then you will not be disappointed. Assassin's Creed II takes every part of Assassin's Creed, and ramps it up a notch. In fact, there is no area that the sequel regressed in, and progression is seen every time you turn the corner. With that being said there are still flaws, or annoyances as they truly turn out to be.

Digimon Rumble Arena 2 (PlayStation 2)

Digimon Rumble Arena 2 review (PS2)

Reviewed on March 21, 2010

Digimon Rumble Arena 2 takes you into the Digital World once again for a Super Smash Brothers style fighting game for the Gamecube, Playstation 2, and Xbox. You get to pick a Digimon and use different moves in order to defeat 2-4 others in a 2D fighting game. There may not be as much depth as Super Smash Brothers, but it is fun enough to want to play it through, and maybe boot it up with friends, assuming you have enough self esteem to not be embarrassed by playing a Digimon game designed for ch...

Custom Robo (GameCube)

Custom Robo review (GCN)

Reviewed on March 21, 2010

Custom Robo certainly isn't your typical fighting game. Customization plays a major role, and creating characters that have balance certainly isn't the games objective. The main objective is to create the strongest fighter you can, typically something seen in RPGs or Action/Adventure titles. It would appear that mixing in amazing customization seemed to work for Noise Inc, as they created one of the more memorable titles for the GameCube.

MLB 10: The Show (PlayStation 3)

MLB 10: The Show review (PS3)

Reviewed on March 21, 2010

The Show series has always been of top quality, and this year iteration is no different. That is actually saying things quite literally, as there really is no difference in the actual game than the previous year as well. Some might say that you can't fix what isn't broken, and that is true for most aspects in MLB 10, but other parts feel dated and really should have been fixed and improved to make this game feel like less of a glorified roster update.

Final Fantasy XIII (PlayStation 3)

Final Fantasy XIII review (PS3)

Reviewed on March 19, 2010

Is it good? That's what everyone has been asking in tremulous voices when the subject of Square Enix's most expensive addition to the Final Fantasy line up comes up.

Myst (PC)

Myst review (PC)

Reviewed on March 17, 2010

Today I found an old shoebox in my closet. When I opened it, it revealed a stack of papers, all of them littered with scribbled notes in pencil and quick sketches of strange artifacts, maps, and charts. I began to leaf through, intrigued by the unfamiliar handwriting, until I came to a drawing of an island. Underneath it was scrawled a single word: Myst.

Ace Combat 3: Electrosphere (PlayStation)

Ace Combat 3: Electrosphere review (PSX)

Reviewed on March 16, 2010

The one thing Ace Combat 3: Electrosphere can flaunt over its two PlayStation brethren is how diverse some of its missions are. One such early mission involves an automated plane (looks more like a blimp, but whatever) carrying deadly gas, and it's programmed to crash into a city. Destroying it would do more harm than good, so you're left with having to blow up all the structures in its path, ensuring it will land safely in the river. I'd question how they knew it was going to land in the...

Ultima (Apple II)

Ultima review (APP2)

Reviewed on March 15, 2010

Origin did the right thing releasing an improved version of Ultima I. The original, with less entertaining graphics and horrid controls, is tougher to find on the net. It's best to enjoy the chubby townsmen bouncing around bushes bigger than they are and ignore the silly plot: build a time machine to knock off the wizard Mondain before he can craft a powerful evil gem. Then, U1 is straightforward kill-the-big-wizard fun.

2010: The Graphic Action Game (Colecovision)

2010: The Graphic Action Game review (CVN)

Reviewed on March 11, 2010

Even by the humble standards of 1984, 2010: The Graphic Action Game is light on action, none of it particularly graphic, unless you consider circuit board stills especially rousing or obscene. Worse, the misnomer does not end there. If you were to create a game based on the film 2010: The Year We Made Contact audiences today might suppose you dim, but in the early 1980s the sequel to 2001: A Space Odyssey was anticipated enough to get a Colecovision project bearing its nam...

Ace Combat 2 (PlayStation)

Ace Combat 2 review (PSX)

Reviewed on March 09, 2010

Sequels always have the daunting task of besting their predecessors. If the follow-ups don't match or go beyond their quality, they could potentially destroy the series, or put it into stasis for a few years. Ace Combat 2 was in a situation where it couldn't just match Air Combat and expect gamers to accept it; the game was way too simple and short, and while it had some nice dogfighting action (on the hard setting, at least), there wasn't enough of it to warrant multiple playthroughs.

Heavy Rain (PlayStation 3)

Heavy Rain review (PS3)

Reviewed on March 04, 2010

Since Heavy Rain’s release it has received numerous accolades from reviewers. Yet still I encounter gamers who are wary of the title. Some of this wariness no doubt comes from the calamity that was Quantic Dream’s last release, Indigo Prophecy, which had the unfortunate distinction of being a sloppy and unfinished product. Others came away from Heavy Rain’s demo unable to deal with its admittedly odd system of movement, claiming that the controls would surely ruin the ent...

Air Combat (PlayStation)

Air Combat review (PSX)

Reviewed on March 02, 2010

There's really nothing significant that sticks out about Air Combat, the console debut of the Ace Combat series. You just go from one mission to another, completing simple tasks that involve shooting down enemy planes or ground targets, while piloting various planes with terrible paint jobs (purple and red?!). Some of the missions are shockingly easy, too, once you realize you can ignore the enemy and fly straight towards the targets that need to be destroyed. Thanks to this, certain miss...

Final Fantasy V (SNES)

Final Fantasy V review (SNES)

Reviewed on March 01, 2010

Among the many Final Fantasies, “Final Fantasy V” is reported to be the favorite of the series godfather, Hironobu Sakaguchi. This would surprise a lot of us Western gamers, who largely favor the sixth and seventh games. Video role-playing fans on this side of the cultural hemisphere tend to judge these games by their “story”, which is probably why a lot of people tend to dismiss the once mysterious and out of reach FFV. When a lot of American gamers finally got the chance to play the “Lost Fina...

No More Heroes 2: Desperate Struggle review (WII)

Reviewed on March 01, 2010

Travis Touchdown could have gone out like a punk, but punks don't give up so easily, especially not without a fight! Certainly no one was expecting a sophomore effort from crazy game designer / frontman Suda 51 and his self-proclaimed 'video game band'. With a string of commercial flops to its credit, it seemed No More Heroes was destined to become no more than another cult classic for Grasshopper Manufacture(GhM). It would have been a shame though, since it is Suda 51's most acces...

Tatsunoko vs. Capcom: Ultimate All-Stars (Wii)

Tatsunoko vs. Capcom: Ultimate All-Stars review (WII)

Reviewed on February 28, 2010

Capcom has always kind of been the premier name in fighting games thanks to Street Fighter, but I've never thought that was their biggest strength. There are plenty of other games, each with their own merits that make them debatably better or worse. Capcom's real strength instead lies in the one niche of the genre that they have almost completely cornered, the team fighter.

Plants vs. Zombies (PC)

Plants vs. Zombies review (PC)

Reviewed on February 28, 2010

The basics are fairly straightforward. Given a scant number of slots with which to load as many fruits and vegetables as you’ve collected to that point, you must strategically select which plants will counter the various kinds of zombies invading your lawn. However, sowing seeds requires sunlight, which can only be obtained periodically during daytime stages or through sun-producing plants.

Dark Heart of Uukrul (PC)

Dark Heart of Uukrul review (PC)

Reviewed on February 28, 2010

The title villain in Dark Heart of Uukrul, doesn't just dabble in near-immortality and nasty magic. He's crushed the underground city of Eriosthe beneath his will, eradicating hackneyed old hinty taverns so you must rely on his oblique concern-trolling hints. He's scattered eight stone pieces of his heart through the city to gain immortailty. The good news? You only need to find six, and a hammer, to challenge and defeat him. The bad? There's a reason you're given two passes. That, plus s...

Savage 2: A Tortured Soul (PC)

Savage 2: A Tortured Soul review (PC)

Reviewed on February 27, 2010

Savage 2: A Tortured Soul is a game that defies, complicates, and undermines the process of game categorization altogether. It belongs to a hybrid genre that can tentatively be called Competitive Real-Time Strategy Role-Playing Action, a genre with only three games, one of which is its ultimately superior predecessor.
