Balance Bored? Hardly.

Art of Balance

HIGH: 3... 2... 1... YES!

LOW: 3... 2... NOOOOO!

WTF: Gravity-inverting blocks?!

Gravity Ghost Review

Actually pretty solid


Gravity Ghost

HIGH: The understated (but still neat) physics and non-stressful, challenging gameplay. The characters. Also, the music.

LOW: Wait-didn't I get those achievements?

WTF: Mazes are those things on neurological tests I always did really badly on. Why are they my favorite part of this game?

Tears to Tiara 2 Review

The Thrill of Tedium

Tears to Tiara 2

HIGH Battling the 'thing' that came out of the mine.

LOW Will this villain never shut up?

WTF The opening music video is pretty incredible.

Now with more pixels in each aggressively-pointed finger

Phoenix Wright

HIGH One of the best trilogies in handheld history preserved in a new, definitive edition

LOW Old translation errors and typos persist through two remasters

HIGH Evolving gameplay mechanics make progress visible and rewarding.

LOW Collectable snowflakes often blend-in with the background art.

Ironclad Tactics Review

A Little Rusty

Ironclad Tactics

HIGH Camping an armored chassis on the enemy's side of the board, decimating it.

LOW Almost always needing to play missions twice.

WTF The aesthetics and humor feel like this game was built by the Penny Arcade guys. It wasn't.

The welcome return of a genuine classic

HIGH Still one of the best adventure games ever made.

LOW Janky animations destroy what looks beautiful in a screenshot.

WTF How does Gabriel's 1993 phone not have a "redial" button?

Runers Review

Spinning the Rune-lette Wheel

Runers Review Screenshot

HIGH Finally getting the ability to craft a level three spell!

LOW Having that spell turn out to be a useless rock shield.

WTF That enemy is healing faster than I can damage him. How did this wind up in the game?

The Old City: Leviathan Review

Pretentious, Prosaic, Post-Apocalyptic Fiction

The Old City: Leviathan Review Screenshot

HIGH Some genuinely tense, unnerving moments in the first chapter.

So Close, So Far

Grand Theft Auto V Screenshot

HIGH Flying a crop duster into a cargo plane, then riding a jeep out of it.

LOW The frustrating early mission that introduces the wonky drive-by mechanics.

WTF We're escaping a full-on military response by hopping onto a freakin' freight train?
