Game Reviews

The Awakened Fate Ultimatum Review

Doesn't Reach the Heavens

Awakened Fate Ultimatum

High: The complexity of the moral choices is interesting.

Low: Gameplay is simple. And not in a good way.

WTF: A red-haired, black-wearing antiheroine who sounds like Michelle Ruff? Where have we seen that before?

Vector Thrust Review

Rolling, turning, diving!


Vector Thrust

HIGH All the combat jets anyone could ever want, all in one game.

LOW The rest of the content has a long way to go.

WTF Some of the experimental aircraft designs from the past... Wow!

Westerado: Double Barreled Review

Once upon a time in the (8bit) West...

Westerado

The GOOD: It's inspired by some of the finest Spaghetti Western material

The BAD: Playing the sister makes her a stand-in for the protagonist instead of following her own storyline.

And the WTF: "Making hats". Does it mean what I think it means? I think it does.

LA Cops Review

Trying to Tell Y'All

LA Cops

HIGH Gunning down thugs with an assault rifle as they blindly charge my chokepoint.

LOW Trying to convince my AI partner to be of any help whatsoever.

WTF So many mustaches!

Til Morning's Light Review

Creepy Cute

Til Morning's Light

HIGH It's old-school Resident Evil, plus a big dose of cute.

LOW Too much combat.

WTF Biscuits appear when ghosts die?

Zen Pinball 2: Portal Review

It's been fun. Don't come back.

Zen Pinball 2: Portal

HIGH Getting Atlas and P-Body together for the first time.

LOW Constantly losing my ball in the leftmost gutter.

WTF I thought the Companion Cube would play a larger role...

Toren Second Opinion

It's all an allusion

Toren

HIGH Answering the knocking on the well lid.

LOW The "Beauty" dream, which was pointlessly frustrating thanks to bad platforming and inane enemies.

WTF Why put "interact" and "attack" on the same button when the final battle requires correct distinction between these actions and ten controller inputs are free?

Wolfenstein: The Old Blood Review

Schutzstaffel!

Wolfenstein: The Old Blood

HIGH The unexpected end of the cable car sequence.

LOW So they've gone from letting me play 2% of Wolfenstein 3D to including 15%? Why not unlock the whole game, Machine Games?

WTF I cannot claim to have expected that final boss.

Fat Chicken Review

Lovingly Plated, but Raw

Fat Chicken

HIGH Happening on the right design and the right timing of early launches to get every animal to the goal in a huge level.

LOW Being so short of cash that I had to launch every wave early... before the first wave even reached the goal point.

WTF The ‘Mr. Creosote' bit in the final level.

Project Root Review

A Shoot ‘em up Looking to Branch Out

Project Root

HIGH: The difficulty and environments

LOW: The unforgiving level-up system and lack of options
