Cotton: Fantastic Night Dreams (Turbografx-CD)

Cotton: Fantastic Night Dreams review (TGCD)

Reviewed on May 16, 2010

When I think of "terror", I don't think of dirty hallways in need of a janitor. I think of grim forests populated by child-eating trees. I think of dungeons adorned with living statues that exist solely to murder little girls. Cotton weaves through obstacles in all of these areas, accompanied only by the nearly-naked fairy Silk (don't call Silk an "option"; she hates that). Everything else is trying to kill Cotton.

Zeno Clash: Ultimate Edition (Xbox 360)

Zeno Clash: Ultimate Edition review (X360)

Reviewed on May 14, 2010

Zeno Clash is so aggressively bizarre that when you call it “imaginative,” you’re in danger of giving its creators more credit than they deserve. So much of what’s here strikes me as weirdness for the sake of weirdness that the game’s most beautiful or striking moments, of which there are many, may very well have turned up by complete accident.

What Did I Do To Deserve This, My Lord!? 2 review (PSP)

Reviewed on May 13, 2010

Badman 2 is addictive. It’s addictive like Tetris is addictive, only Tetris doesn’t have a little evil man begging you to help him conquer the world. In Badman, such victory is achieved through the digging of superior dungeons with your magical evil pick-axe. The

Silent Hill: Homecoming (Xbox 360)

Silent Hill: Homecoming review (X360)

Reviewed on May 10, 2010

Shepherd’s Glen looked every bit the next-gen reincarnation of Silent Hill, then new protagonist Alex Shepherd turns up in his surplus army coat, frizzy hair and a rugged stubble beard, looks you deep in the eyes and proclaims in a bold, confident voice “I’ve completely missed the point!”

Star Ocean: Till the End of Time (PlayStation 2)

Star Ocean: Till the End of Time review (PS2)

Reviewed on May 08, 2010

In Till the End of Time, you don't exist in some primitive medieval world dominated by swords and sorcery. Nope, you're in a massive galaxy with all sorts of planets — many of which are quite advanced technologically. You get teased by this in the early going as protagonist Fayt (pronounced "fate") and family are chilling out in some futuristic resort. Then all hell breaks loose, Fayt gets separated from everyone and winds up in an escape pod that crashes...on a primitive medieval world.

BlazBlue: Calamity Trigger (PlayStation 3)

BlazBlue: Calamity Trigger review (PS3)

Reviewed on May 08, 2010

Somehow, this deceptively simple fighter with fewer than 10 moves per character has the depth of an ocean. Even the story mode is deceptively complicated, and all the more rewarding for it. Moreover, the combat is complex, and the characters are interesting in battle and out. Blazblue is a fighter of the highest caliber, and a truly rewarding experience.

Major League Baseball 2K10 (PlayStation 3)

Major League Baseball 2K10 review (PS3)

Reviewed on May 07, 2010

Like so many other sports games released this season, MLB 2K10 is guilty of failing to break new ground. My Player mode won’t appease everyone. However, it’s pretty clear that 2K Sports designed it with only one kind of player in mind – the kind who has always wanted to be the individual star of a baseball team without having to worry about all the other nonsense.

Borderlands DoubleGame Add-On Pack (Xbox 360)

Borderlands DoubleGame Add-On Pack review (X360)

Reviewed on May 06, 2010

DLC has earned a reputation for being a quick and easy cash-grab, yet Gearbox’s efforts to expand the world of Pandora come off as anything but that; these are earnest and hearty attempts to deliver fans more of the engaging cooperative play we’ve already fallen in love with. Borderlands: Double Game Add-On Pack conveniently bundles two of the three currently available expansions onto one reasonably-priced disc, and it’s a worthwhile investment for those who haven’t made it already.

0-D Beat Drop (Xbox 360)

0-D Beat Drop review (X360)

Reviewed on April 25, 2010

0-D Beat Drop sets itself up as a fusion of rhythm and puzzle games, but the way it handles music doesn't fundamentally change the structure of its source material. No matter how many modes it throws at you, this is still an easier remix of Puyo Puyo with a different skin.

Just Cause 2 (Xbox 360)

Just Cause 2 review (X360)

Reviewed on April 25, 2010

Just Cause 2 doesn’t rely on things that go boom. Instead, the game succeeds by delivering moments that are intense, surreal, and will push players off the edge of their seats in cool and unexpected ways.

AGAIN (DS)

AGAIN review (DS)

Reviewed on April 24, 2010

Again is the latest (and maybe last) interactive novel game from Cing, the developers of Trace Memory and Hotel Dusk. Such a pedigree makes this game even more disappointing than it otherwise would be.

Let's Draw! (DS)

Let's Draw! review (DS)

Reviewed on April 24, 2010

Let's Draw! includes a variety of fun shapes, too, things that kids would actually care to draw. You can start out simple just by drawing a few lines—and the game will congratulate you on your artistic prowess—then move up to something more complex like a proper circle or a bicycle or one of several types of dinosaur. The folks who made the game clearly knew their audience and worked to keep them happy and engaged.

Sam & Max: The Penal Zone review (PC)

Reviewed on April 24, 2010

If there was ever any doubt that Telltale were anything but borderline insane, then the first ten minutes of Sam & Max: The Penal Zone put that firmly to bed.

Shattered Horizon (PC)

Shattered Horizon review (PC)

Reviewed on April 23, 2010

Shattered Horizon is certainly an original and unique addition to the FPS genre, but the lack of content and variety, the small number of players online and the lack of Windows XP support make it a difficult title to recommend.

How To Train Your Dragon (Xbox 360)

How To Train Your Dragon review (X360)

Reviewed on April 23, 2010

As you spend time outside of the arena with your dragon, whether that be training in the cave or playing mini-games that you have unlocked at a distant cave, your over-sized pet will grow weary. That can quickly impact its performance, so you have to scrounge up grub to feed the beast so that he will trust you and fight his best on your behalf. There's no real challenge to the process; you simply need to have the patience to wander the islands in circles as you hack apart the chickens, sheep and boars. You have to be ready to stop and dig under every rock, to slowly pull up one vegetable or flower at a time and then to wander back to your home to stuff your dragons full of goodies.

Battlefield: Bad Company 2 (PlayStation 3)

Battlefield: Bad Company 2 review (PS3)

Reviewed on April 23, 2010

The game's limited scope comes with a pleasing silver lining, however: destructible environments. Games have made attempts along those lines in the past, but Bad Company 2 takes the beautiful chaos to an unusually involving level. For example, one stage finds the player holed up in a wooden shack as a tank and gunmen approach from the far side of a field. It's possible to duck behind the wooden walls, then to peak out and fire shots at the approaching goons. Hiding out offers only limited protection, though. Your enemies will shred your shelter with bullets, until finally you're standing in a husk of your former stronghold. That's not an isolated example, either.

Sakura Wars: So Long, My Love (PlayStation 2)

Sakura Wars: So Long, My Love review (PS2)

Reviewed on April 22, 2010

One definitely has to give credit to the Japanese for their ability to appeal to a wide range of sexual tastes. There’s a female here for everyone. There’s the plucky and inexplicably clumsy redhead, the big-breasted and flirtatious blonde maid, the fiery black-skinned beauty, and a ten year-old. These, and other women, will team up with the Japanese hero to form the Combat Theater Revue to promote justice through the art of song and dance... and occasionally through dedicated missile strikes.

Resonance of Fate (PlayStation 3)

Resonance of Fate review (PS3)

Reviewed on April 21, 2010

For the most part, this battle system works wonders and it lends Resonance of Fate a fair portion of its charm. When you're able to stop thinking about all of the strategy that goes into perfectly executing a massive assault on powerful enemies, you're able to stop and (mostly) enjoy some of the most visually stimulating combat ever featured in a JRPG. You're characters run, jump, flip and whirl through interactive arenas, participants in a bullet-riddled ballet.

Tom Clancy's Splinter Cell: Conviction (Xbox 360)

Tom Clancy's Splinter Cell: Conviction review (X360)

Reviewed on April 19, 2010

Where Conviction diverges from its predecessors is in pacing. Guards in previous titles didn’t know what they were up against; at the player’s discretion, they often didn’t even know they were up against anything at all. On the flipside, Fisher’s enemies in Conviction know exactly who he is. They know his reputation. They scream profane threats at him when they can feel him in their midst. They don’t like him, but the feeling is mutual. Fisher is no longer a patient, calculating government agent. He is a rogue operative uncovering a conspiracy involving the death of his daughter and he’s out for blood.
