Ninja Theory

Fightback Review

Arcade Revenge

Fightback Review Screenshot

HIGH Perfectly dodging two samurai and taking them both down, then nailing a biker who tried to sneak in an attack while I was busy.

LOW Just as I cleared a difficult floor with a Perfect, the game crashed.

WTF The samurai helmets seem like they're pushing the themed-gang motif a little too far.

GameCritics.com Podcast Episode 95: Clearing out the Backlog

This week we attempt to scratch the mountain that is the GameCritics.com backlog by getting to some of those titles that we've always wanted to play, but never made the time for. Now, we have made the time, at least for three of the games. The crew dishes on I Am Alive, Sleeping Dogs, and Heavenly Sword, and more, plus a What We've Been Playing roundtable. Featuring Sinan Kubba, Chi Kong Lui, Brad Gallaway, and Richard Naik.

The Devil's Uprising

DmC: Devil May Cry—Vergil's Downfall Screenshot

HIGH An all new fighting style to smash some skulls with.

LOW Those animated cut-scenes are extraordinarily hideous.

WTF Vergil's unlockable skin looks very, very silly.

Fanboys May Cry

HIGH Comboing through a group of enemies like a tidal wave, leaving nothing but their shattered remains in Dante's wake.

LOW The penultimate boss fight is disappointingly pedestrian compared to the rest of the game.

WTF The battle against Bob Barbas is... is... it's...

Enslaved: The trouble with Tripitaka

Enslaved: Odyssey to the West Screenshot

During the "Females on Female Characters" panel at PAX East 2011, Susan Arendt argued briefly in support of Tripitaka (Trip), a character from Enslaved: Odyssey to the West. This appreciation seemed bizarre to me, so the moment stuck in my mind. Enslaved was a gorgeous game with phenomenal voice acting, decently expressive gameplay, and very bad writing, of which I thought Trip was a prime example.
