The Walking Dead: Episode 1 - A New Day (PlayStation 3)

The Walking Dead: Episode 1 - A New Day review (PS3)

Reviewed on April 26, 2012

Like the comic and show, the game is really about relationships and tough decisions. The dialogue options are the heart of the game. You can choose how to react to most things characters say. Depending on the situation, you can lie or tell the truth, be hateful or helpful, insult someone or support them. Characters will remember the things you do and say to them, and later scenes will change depending on your decisions.

Rayman 3 HD (PlayStation 3)

Rayman 3 HD review (PS3)

Reviewed on April 26, 2012

While Rayman Origins hasn’t exactly set the world on fire, those who gave it a chance were impressed with it for (among other things) its sense of humour and charm. Perhaps to capitalize on these new fans, Ubisoft recently released a new HD remaster of the least charming title in the series, Rayman 3.

Pure review (X360)

Reviewed on April 22, 2012

Pure will just have to settle for being more fun to play than it really has any right to be.

Raiders of the Lost Ark (Atari 2600)

Raiders of the Lost Ark review (A2600)

Reviewed on April 21, 2012

Markets are kind of cool, as you collect money in the game and can use it in these places to buy bullets and other useful things. In this one, you also can try to interact with a giant head plastered on the left side of the screen. Which will then kill you. Ha-ha…you have to love trial-and-error puzzle solving! You're not supposed to interact with it…or walk above or below it. In fact, you should pretend its third of the room doesn't even exist.

My Hero (Sega Master System)

My Hero review (SMS)

Reviewed on April 11, 2012

You play the role of The Hero, but you look like Edward Carnby, specifically from Alone in the Dark 2, right down to the blue leisure suit and pitiful death sequences. You are the strapping, golden-domed captain of the football team, enjoying a sunset with your prudish girlfriend on the beach, besotting her with your romanticism and a bottle of Alize.

Silent Hill HD Collection (Xbox 360)

Silent Hill HD Collection review (X360)

Reviewed on April 09, 2012

I am not enamoured of any two old games slapped together (just Silent Hill 2 and 3 in this case) being called a “collection” in the first place, especially given how easily Silent Hill 4: The Room (of the same ‘era’) could have been included for more value if not quality. Moreover, the third instalment isn't a great game anyway; certainly not on par with the second – but this is still the best release for the series in ages.

Jungle Hunt (Atari 2600)

Jungle Hunt review (A2600)

Reviewed on April 06, 2012

You'd start out swinging from vines like Tarzan. Interestingly enough, this game originally was called Jungle King where you controlled a guy who looked like Tarzan. And then the lawsuits came rolling in, so the name of the game and the appearance of the hero were changed, giving you a Dr. Livingston-like character instead.

Silent Hill: Downpour (Xbox 360)

Silent Hill: Downpour review (X360)

Reviewed on April 03, 2012

Some might argue that the canon was lost once it left the hands of its original developers; since that time it has been passed from studio to studio, each with ingenuous intentions of making the first ‘next gen’ standout. Regrettably, that still hasn’t happened.

Little King's Story (Wii)

Little King's Story review (WII)

Reviewed on March 31, 2012

Your royal guard has a tendency to get caught up on fences, on the edge of buildings and so forth. By the time you’re commanding a group of 17 soldiers, it’s all but impossible to make everyone climb a simple staircase without cautious preparation. Such issues also cropped up in games like Pikmin and Overlord, but here their impact on moment-to-moment gameplay is more severe.

Wild Arms 2 (PlayStation)

Wild Arms 2 review (PSX)

Reviewed on March 30, 2012

If nothing else, Wild Arms 2 entertains solely because of how comfortable it is seeking refuge in audacity. In the early going, Ashley Winchester, the lead player in an ensemble cast of protagonists, gets possessed by a demon that once threatened to destroy Filgaia, the world in this series. By the end of the game's second disc, a touch of demonic possession seems as normal as watching the sun rise.

Kid Icarus: Uprising (3DS)

Kid Icarus: Uprising review (3DS)

Reviewed on March 30, 2012

Somehow, the most appealing aspect of any chapter is the game's strong learning curve. Even though you receive a great deal of guidance from the Goddess of Light, that advice only tells you how to interact with your surroundings (such as when she instructs you to grind along rails or explains what activating certain switches might accomplish).

Shinobido 2: Revenge of Zen (Vita)

Shinobido 2: Revenge of Zen review (VITA)

Reviewed on March 29, 2012

It's painfully clear to me that Shinobido 2 wasn't a labor of love. Recycled environments, halfhearted character designs, and muddy graphics overall simply don't put the Vita through its paces, nor do they showcase what the powerful handheld is capable of doing. Forgettable music, voice acting, and frustrating touch controls that only worsen the experience all work together to make Shinobido 2 a very weak package overall. If you're looking for well-executed stealth action that delivers a more complete experience, you might want to gravitate toward the excellent Ninja Gaiden Sigma Plus instead.

BlazBlue: Continuum Shift EXTEND (Xbox 360)

BlazBlue: Continuum Shift EXTEND review (X360)

Reviewed on March 28, 2012

Through revisions, balance updates, and mechanics changes, the game has gained its own brand of complexity. However, it's still quite the fun time whether you're the type who just wants to get in there and button-mash, or you’re someone looking for a deep fighting game containing a cast where absolutely no character plays the same and all of them come with their own individual sets of tactics.

Touch My Katamari (Vita)

Touch My Katamari review (VITA)

Reviewed on March 25, 2012

At its heart, Touch My Katamari is the same monster we know and love, with a bright new coat of paint. And it shows quite a bit of potential for what the series could possibly undertake. For now, it's a bridge to bigger and better Katamari games that strips itself down to basics to grow from there. And like the in-game katamari, grow it shall -- hopefully into the brightest star yet.

Resident Evil: Operation Raccoon City review (PS3)

Reviewed on March 23, 2012

My team went through a checkpoint door and encountered enemy resistance. I noticed one teammate was absent on the front lines, and looked for her. Naturally, she was running in place, into the locked checkpoint door we had just come through.

Resident Evil: Operation Raccoon City review (PS3)

Reviewed on March 23, 2012

A dismally unimaginative co-op shooter, coupled with a half-finished idea for an intriguing competitive component. Play it in either mode and you’ll be bored or irritated within minutes.

Shin Megami Tensei: Devil Survivor 2 (DS)

Shin Megami Tensei: Devil Survivor 2 review (DS)

Reviewed on March 21, 2012

The meaty bits of battle were so succulent that they were worth waiting through even the most asinine dialogue. When a game's perks are so great that you can ignore such flaws, you know you have a great title on your hands. Shin Megami Tensei: Devil Survivor 2 definitely qualifies.

Metal Gear Solid: Snake Eater 3D (3DS)

Metal Gear Solid: Snake Eater 3D review (3DS)

Reviewed on March 19, 2012

When Metal Gear Solid: Snake Eater 3D was announced for the 3DS, many people wondered how it was going to work on a platform the original Metal Gear Solid 3 clearly wasn’t designed for. Once the Metal Gear Solid HD collection was announced for PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360, the question changed from “how?” to “why bother?” There may be a place for both versions, but the value that you’ll find in the portable version mostly comes down to the type of Metal Gear Solid fan you are.

Instead, let’s all listen to people who have never played the game quote the ‘hilarious’ intro until the urge to club them with a half brick becomes too strong.
