Chariot Review

Funereal Platforming

HIGH Finally nailing that mid-air vault off a flying cart to collect a secret skull.

LOW Slamming into the same wall over and over again in the terrible speed section.

WTF I may have a new favorite video game skeleton.

Halo 5: Guardians Second Opinion

Halo again, Spartans

Halo 5 Guardians Review Screenshot

HIGH The beginning of chapter thirteen is cool, and Exuberant Witness is awesome.

LOW The suicidal conveyor belt of failed AI revives. I wouldn't trust these braindead Spartans to open a tin of peaches without adult supervision, let alone save humanity.

WTF Spartans engaging in poorly directed hand-to-hand fisticuffs.

NBA Live 16 Review

As good as a colonoscopy

HIGH It's light years ahead of NBA Live 15, in every way possible...

LOW ... so is a colonoscopy.

WTF Based on the audio, it's not uncommon for everyone to leave the arena mid-game, including the announcers.

Halo 5: Guardians Review

Bet They Can't Stick It

Halo 5: Guardians Review Screenshot

HIGH Hoarding Mantis requisitions and going mech-crazy in a random Warzone match.

LOW The Warden Eternal... and the Warden Eternal again... and again...

WTF Isn't living on a planet made of glass kind of hazardous?

Blood Bowl 2 Review

The Playoffs Just Got Interesting

Blood Bowl 2 Review Screenshot

HIGH Rolling two red dice and making my opponent decide between 'knocked down' and ‘knocked down'.

LOW Missing my receiver roll and losing the game-tying touchdown in the last turn.

WTF Wait, the color commentator is on my team now? How did that happen?

Fallout 4 Second Opinion

Fallout. Fallout never changes.

Fallout 4 Review Screenshot

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.

Wasteland 2: Director's Cut Review

The post-apocalypse is a cruel mistress

Wasteland 2: Director's Cut Review Screenshot

HIGH The satisfaction of wiping out a whole pack of raiders via tactical genius.

LOW Scroll, scroll and scroll again through disconnected menus.

WTF Continuously shooting wide of enemies, even at close range.

Beyond Eyes Review

Beyond Boring

Beyond Eyes Review Screenshot

HIGH The art is beautiful.

LOW I get that Rae is blind, but her walking speed is rage-inducing.

WTF There's literally no gameplay to be had here.
