Gods Eater Burst Review

Smaller. Faster. Better?

HIGH The rapid-switching gun/shield/sword/mouth mechanic is brilliant.

LOW All clothing in the game is only cosmetic; there are no effects or bonuses.

WTF Why is it called "Gods"? Every character in the game says it without the S.

Majin and the Forsaken Kingdom Second Opinion

The Sixty Dollar Indie Game

HIGH The eureka moment, not in discovering the solution to a puzzle, but in discovering the solution to approaching the game itself.

LOW The early hours with the game, where each uneventful hour felt like an eternity.

WTF I still can't figure out how to say "this game feels like a 10 dollar downloadable" without it coming off like an insult.

A Hard Night's Work

HIGH WELCOME!

LOW Repeatedly failing part of chapter 16 because an object I needed was just slightly out of view.

WTF Why does everyone in this game like chicken so much?

Monster Hunter Freedom Unite Review

Three Hundred Hours and Still Going Strong

HIGH A skin-of-my-teeth victory after a knock-down, drag-out, forty-five minute battle.

LOW Struggling to survive the nasty dual Tigrex mission... Twice.

WTF Watching my Felyne companion get the game-winning hit in on the last boss.

It Will be One Huge, EPIC Battle

HIGH The soundtrack (with vocals!) in the New Hero Mastery Dungeon.

LOW Saving before the boss of the aforementioned dungeon, dying, resetting, getting the heck out of Dodge, finding out I still lost all my stuff anyway (including $100,000), and having no one to blame but myself.

WTF Whatever comes out of Pirohiko's mouth that isn't a platitude or a pep talk. And even some of those.

Venetica Review

Now with 90% Less Venice

HIGH Dying from a coordinated attack by three weakened enemies, then resurrecting in just the right spot to slaughter them all within a few seconds.

LOW Fighting the final battle with the camera whipping around like crazy.

WTF Couldn't this place have looked more like Venice?

Breach Review

Been There, Done That

HIGH The suspense of hunting someone in Sole Survivor mode.

LOW Spawning right in front of a rocket.

WTF I can blow up this piece of wall, but not the other, more hollow looking wall?

Star Wars: The Force Unleashed II Review

FU2 is the Most Appropriate Acronym Ever

HIGH: Using a Jedi mind trick to get a stormtrooper to commit suicide.

LOW: Everything else.

WTF: You know what this level needs? More walkers.

Metal Gear Solid: Peace Walker Review

Ghost in the Machine

HIGH The excellent expanded characterization of The Boss.

LOW Watching a tank slowly circle an area for 30 minutes while attempting to non-lethally disable its entourage.

WTF The ending after the ending. Pacifica Ocean?

Enslaved: Odyssey to the West Second Opinion

Monkey Don't Trip

HIGH The romantic art design.

LOW Fall-behind-and-die chase segments.

WTF Andy Serkis' face, in cut-scenes all over the place.
