Myst IV: Revelation – Review

As much as I wish developers would find more creative ways to engage players than sex and violence, I must also confess that the Myst series is wholly inadequate as a leader to guide developers out of their narrow minds.

Indigo Prophecy Second Opinion

Brad said that while playing Indigo Prophecy he felt he was seeing a new genre being born, and I couldn't agree more. This game is the opening salvo of the "suspense" genre, making it all the more surprising that, for the most part, its aim is true.

Indigo Prophecy Review

On page two of the instruction manual, director David Cage states that his dissatisfaction with videogames' emphasis on action and neglect of emotion led him to create Indigo Prophecy. He clearly states that the game's goal is to sacrifice neither the interactivity nor the narrative in an attempt to create an experience that is richer and deeper than "killing monsters in corridors and shooting crates to find ammunition."

Vampire the Masquerade: Bloodlines – Second Opinion

Upon its initial release Vampire - The Masquerade: Bloodlines was such a rushed mess that it put its developer, Troika, out of business. Let me give you a little example to illustrate my point: Its physics engine allowed you to pick up various objects and throw them around. Among these objects were bottles. The problem is, the bottles wouldn't break when they hit the ground.

Dungeon Lords – Review

How on earth could Dungeon Lords not be a bad game? A huge action/adventure game done on the cheap by an independent studio? I wouldn't have to be an especially cynical person to start playing the game with very low expectations. Which made it all the more surprising when I discovered just what a good game Dungeon Lords actually is.

Dungeon Lords

Psychonauts – Second Opinion

You'd be hard-pressed to find anyone who enjoys high concept games more than I do, but regardless of how fancy or sophisticated the idea is, there still needs to be a solid core of enjoyable play behind it. Psychonauts's premise hooked me from the start, and though I have great respect for what creator Tim Schafer has contributed to the world of videogames, I found the "mental spelunking" experience here to be lacking both in terms of plot and content.

Psychonauts – Review

Double Fine's Psychonauts combines psychology and parapsychology: we have personal experience with our own brains 24 hours a day, but a boy with psychic powers and a gateway into people's heads can still prove that the human mind is strange as all get out.
