HIGH Having a whole mountain stop just short of crushing me because of a well-timed shot.

LOW The computer swooping in and stealing a win at the last moment, over and over again.

WTF The repeated cameos made by the developer—figuratively, anyhow.

Pull Out of Console, Blow onto Connectors

HIGH My face lit up at the prospect of appointing the Saving of The World to a walking taco.

LOW Replaying four hours of progress after a freeze really hurt.  (Save your game!)

WTF Just because an old game once had an invisible warp point doesn't mean a game released this decade needs an invisible warp point!

Good Things Come in Small Packages

HIGH Finding a rare piece of equipment in one of the game's numerous optional dungeons.

LOW Grinding for hours on end so you can afford to buy new gear.

WTF Why is it so damn hard to unlock most of the advanced jobs? We're not masochists, Level-5...

Sports Champions Review

A Game in a Tech Demo's Clothing

Sports Champions Screenshot

HIGH The impossibly tactile feel of nocking an imaginary arrow to a bowstring that doesn't exist.

LOW Volleyball. Incredibly abstracted and not particularly immersive.

WTF In Gladiator Duel, sending opponents soaring weightlessly out of the ring and seeing them smash through background scenery.

Magically Delicious

HIGH The amount of loving care poured into every aspect of the game.

LOW ...every aspect except the laughably shoddy English translation.

WTF Is the deal with the "final battle"?

Ivy the Kiwi? Second Opinion

Run Kiwi Run

Ivy the Kiwi? Screenshot

HIGH When you get going in a level.

LOW Fighting through the massive difficulty spike in the last third of the game.

WTF Why isn't the lovely storybook art part of the levels?

Did You Know Bullseye Seats Two?

HIGH Riding Bullseye for the first time.

LOW Completing the game so soon.

WTF Kicking a villager through a U-shaped cactus to score a field goal.

Why so Serious?

Batman: The Brave and the Bold Screenshot

HIGH Watching what looks like a separately animated scene reveal itself as part of a level.

LOW Episodes that hang around long after they've stopped being interesting.

WTF Catman? Clock King? Every time I think I've seen the weirdest Batman villain...
