ICO Second Opinion

I completely agree with Brad's assessment of ICO as art—the game really is that beautiful. You'll have countless moments where you just have to stop and soak all of the scenery in. This sleeper hit of the year is simply too good to be missed.

There are games, and there is art. Are the two fated to be mutually exclusive? Personally, I'd say the answer is no.

Extermination – Second Opinion

Extermination was slated for release soon after the PlayStation 2 launch in the US. Sony promised that as the first survival-horror game available for the console, it would offer players a unique spin on a genre mired in complacency. What piqued my interest was the discovery that the Deepspace development team was made up of some of the original developers of the Resident Evil series. Unfortunately, as was the case with many of Sony's launch titles, Extermination missed its release date by well over a year.

Extermination – Consumer Guide

According to ESRB, this game contains: Blood, Violence

Extermination – Review

Survival Horror is a tired and worn out genre with far too many games and not enough innovation. Theres a perceptible lack of creativity thats setting into it like gangrene. In the bigger scheme of things, its a relatively young genre that seems to have aged quite poorly before its time.

Twisted Metal: Black – Review

The Twisted Metal videogame franchise has seen its highs and lows. After five attempts in six years, file the series' latest entry, Twisted Metal: Black, under the 'semi-got-it-right' category. This is a distinction normally reserved for the annual updates of EA Sports titles, but it's also applicable here because the most enduring characteristic of Twisted Metal: Black isn't its innovation, but its refinement.

Twisted Metal: Black – Consumer Guide

According to ESRB, this game contains: Blood and Gore, Violence 

Twisted Metal: Black

Game Description: This vehicular combat game brings the original developers of the popular Twisted Metal series back for a dark, eerie installment for the PS2. This version will have new weapons, veteran and rookie drivers, weather effects, and night driving.

Twisted Metal: Black – Second Opinion

I definitely think Chi nailed it when he said that Twisted Metal: Blacks strengths lie in its refinement, rather than in anything innovative.
