LOW Dying and restarting a life that was going so well only moments ago.

WTF Purple tentacles grow from the ground and smack you in the face.

A Shift in Perspective

HIGH "Would you rather…"

LOW Wyatt's lightweight story.

WTF We don't see any of what happened after the stories but before the epilogue?

Call of Juarez: Humdinger

HIGH Getting a high combo streak and topping it off by swerving out of the path of an otherwise fatal gunshot.

LOW The dueling is standard fare, and not much fun.

WTF According to Silas, he's crossed paths with nearly every notable figure from that time period.

Far Cry 3: Blood Dragon Review

Skewed Futuristics

HIGH When "Power Core" plays during intense moments.

LOW Dying because the healing animation takes too long to finish.

WTF Pretty much the entire game, but in a good way.

Anatomy of a poor choice

Mars: War Logs Screenshot

Mars: War Logs is a confusing game on many levels. It's set on another planet far in the future, but most of the fighting involves whacking dudes with a glorified stick. The player never sees the game's only real "war," and instead deals mainly with an internecine conflict concerning the main character Roy's guild. Yet, in the end, even the internal power struggles turn out not to have been the driving force for the game's violence.

DmC: Devil May Cry—Vergil's Downfall Second Opinion

The Devil's Uprising

HIGH An all new fighting style to smash some skulls with.

LOW Those animated cut-scenes are extraordinarily hideous.

WTF Vergil's unlockable skin looks very, very silly.

Leisure Suit Larry: Reloaded Review

Return of the PixelHunter

HIGH I wonder how many Naugas had to die to make that door?

LOW How many times am I going to have to reload this slot machine?

WTF Did Larry just drug a woman for sex?!? How did I forget that was in there?

Skyward Collapse Review

The Devil You Know

Skyward Collapse Screenshot

HIGH Getting past the first score gate with a grand melee in the last three turns of the first age.

LOW Losing because almost the whole map turned into mountains just as my cities got going.

WTF A bunch of guys on foot can't cross mountains, but a giant siege engine on wheels can?

God Mode Review

Divine Limitations

HIGH Laying waste to scores of demons.

LOW Rotting in the matchmaking lobby in the hopes someone will join.

WTF The announcer sounds like Stewie Griffin after huffing sulfur hexafluoride.

Cognition: Episode Three—The Oracle Review

Tower of Terror

Cognition: Episode Three—The Oracle Screenshot

HIGH The clever way the episode lets the player understand the villain.

LOW Being told I couldn't see the rest of a flashback because Erica didn't know something I had figured out immediately.

WTF Where exactly are you keeping that road cone, Erica?
