In the Boom-Boom Room

HIGH Watching your very last explosive take down the crucial pillar that brings down an entire structure.

LOW Driving vehicles across the entire map within a ridiculous time limit.

WTF "When did those twenty guys appear?! Gah!"

Saints Row 2

Game Description: A worthy successor to Saints Row, the first open-world title on next-generation consoles, Saints Row 2 features all new customization options, including player's: gender, age, voice, crib and gang. In addition, the sandbox just got larger with a totally transformed and expanded city of Stilwater, offering all new locations to explore with new vehicles, including motorcycles, boats, helicopters and planes. Saints Row 2 will be playable online in 2-player co-op through the entire singleplayer campaign or in the all new open-world competitive multiplayer mode never before seen in the genre.

New Playa, Same Game

HIGH Jumping out of a plane to discover that there's a minigame associated with the landing.

LOW Finishing a stressful mission only to have my 360 lock up before I had a chance to save.

WTF Not being able to adjust the bust and hip size of female characters.

Bargain Basement 20 – Saint's Row

It's as sure as death or taxes that anyone who takes up videogaming will find themselves rooting through a bargain bin or scouring pre-owned shelves sooner or later. For those that do, few things feel as satisfying as saving hard-earned cash and getting a gem of a game at the same time.

The Punisher – Second Opinion

I'm not sure why Dan put on the kid gloves when it came to his final words on The Punisher, but calling it an extremely well-designed action game is an overstatement. Action game, yes. Well-designed? No.

The Punisher – Review

Of all of the crimes which would destabilize society if they were to be legalized, vigilantism may well be the most attractive. Living as many of us do in a society where various constitutional restrictions keep the police from jailing anyone who looks at them funny (for now, at least), it can be frustrating for anyone with a strong sense of right and wrong to ever see criminals going unpunished for their crimes. Obviously there are logistical problems that keep summary execution from being a practical solution to the world's crime problems, most of them in the area of misidentification and misunderstanding.

The Punisher – Consumer Guide

According to ESRB, this game contains: Blood and Gore, Drug References, Intense Violence

Summoner: A Goddess Reborn

Game Description: One of the best-selling RPG's on GameCube, Summoner: A Goddess Reborn introduced RPG fans to an original and immersive fantasy universe. Queen Maia fights to save her people from the enemy and fulfill her destiny. Battle your enemies in real time with a party-driven combat system; craft deadly poisons, cast a meteor storm or devour your enemy's soul; transform into twelve powerful summons from the blood iuggernaut to the blade of sand; explore over 3D excite and imaginative 3D locales.

Summoner: A Goddess Reborn – Review

Being a game critic is a little like being a soldier. Armies keep their countries safe; we play problematic games so other people don't have to. Spending 45 hours with Summoner: A Goddess Reborn won't get me the Medal of Honor—Daniel Weissenberger deserves that award, hands down. Nevertheless, I hope that I can protect others from the game's badness. Don't get me wrong—Summoner: A Goddess Reborn has some good ideas. They're simply crushed by its technical flaws and boring, boxed-in gameworld.
