LOW Forced environmental barriers that arbitrarily preserve story and difficulty integrity.

Sniper Elite 3 Review

Back to the War Crimes

HIGH The sniping-only multiplayer. Wait, did I seriously just say multiplayer was the best part of the game? Huh?

LOW The psychic tank pilots make a return.

WTF Shouldn't I be sniping more? I feel like the title might be false advertising.

Come Alive

The Walking Dead Season 2: Amid the Ruins Review Screenshot

HIGH The extended chats with Jane.

LOW You seriously aren't going to check for walkers before going in?

A Boot on the Face, Forever

Wolfenstein: The New Order Review Screenshot

HIGH Jimi Hendrix's last scene contains a perfect moment.

LOW So you let me play classic Wolf3D with this game's weapons, but only the first level? Why not put the whole game in there!?

WTF Oh my god, I'm on the MF-ing (spoiler)!

Metal Gear Solid: Ground Zeroes Second Opinion

War Does Change

Metal Gear Solid Ground Zeroes Review Screenshot

HIGH The slow-mo reflex mechanic that kicked in to save my ass countless times.

LOW Hitting "Restart Checkpoint" because a guard saw me across the map.

WTF That time a guard shot me from one foot away ... with a rocket launcher.
