Back to the Wall

Dishonored Definitive Edition Review Screenshot

HIGH The finale of the Brigmore Witches.

LOW Who thought including a trapshooting challenge was a good idea?

WTF Now that I can read the posters and wall signs, I'm troubled by the amount of dogfighting going on.

Fallout 4 Second Opinion

Fallout. Fallout never changes.

HIGH Detective Valentine is charming and entertaining

LOW Shooting mechanics too weak to be a proper shooter, RPG mechanics too shallow to be a proper RPG

WTF Oh, it's the same "tracing through disconnected memories" scene that we've played in Dishonored, Assassin's Creed, Life Is Strange...

Fallout 4 Review

An A-Bomb for Effort

Fallout 4 Review Screenshot

HIGH Primary colors.

LOW The eleventh-hour plot twist that's supposed to tie all the threads together.

WTF An NPC calling my character "Mike" with full voice acting.

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.

The Evil Within Review

Psycho Break

Evil Within

HIGH Tossing a grenade into the midst of four shamblers and watching the limbs fly.

LOW The awkwardly-handled boss fight against a giant dog thing.

WTF Huge black borders cropping off 30% of the screen was a good idea?

Wolfenstein: The New Order Review

A Boot on the Face, Forever

Wolfenstein: The New Order Review Screenshot

HIGH Jimi Hendrix's last scene contains a perfect moment.

LOW So you let me play classic Wolf3D with this game's weapons, but only the first level? Why not put the whole game in there!?

WTF Oh my god, I'm on the MF-ing (spoiler)!

Dishonored: The Brigmore Witches Review

More of What You like?

HIGH It's more Dishonored.

LOW It's more Dishonored.

WTF Hard-to-differentiate friendlies and enemies result in accidental KOs. Oops.

Dishonored Third Opinion

Metal Gear Squalid

Dishonored Screenshot

HIGH The final mission in high chaos adds much-needed narrative tension.

LOW The penultimate mission seems to drag on forever.

WTF The "shocking twist" can be seen coming from orbit by a blind man with his eyes closed… Not that having his eyes closed actually matters, what with him being blind and all.

The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim—Hearthfire Review

Home is Where the Hearth is… Right?

The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim—Hearthfire Screenshot

HIGH Hiring a steward to handle the busywork.

LOW Needing a steward to handle the busywork.

WTF The steward I hired refusing to stay on the estate!

Dishonored Second Opinion

Consider the Leviathan

Dishonored Screenshot

HIGH Ghosting Dunwall Tower in under fifteen minutes.

LOW The interminable 7th level.

WTF Sending a woman off to a life of imprisonment and rape is the positive, "low chaos" option?
