F1 2015 Review

Poetry in Motion, but More Limited than Haiku

F1 2015

HIGH The look and feel of the driving

We Meet Again, Bathurst

Project CARS Review Screenshot

So Close, So Far

Grand Theft Auto V Screenshot

HIGH Flying a crop duster into a cargo plane, then riding a jeep out of it.

LOW The frustrating early mission that introduces the wonky drive-by mechanics.

Sleeping Dogs

HIGH Being allowed to try drifting a hairpin turn over and over again until I get it just right.

LOW Gosh, that photography mode couldn't load slower, could it?

WTF Apparently people leave extremely valuable cars to rot in barns all the time.

Mario Kart 8 Review

One over the eight

Mario Kart 8

HIGH Rainbow Road, which is so beautiful and awe -inspiring that epic songs should be penned about it right now and passed down from generation to generation.

LOW The AI has undoubtedly improved, but it's still immensely irritating at times.

WTF It's a toss up between Luigi's death stare and the blue shell still being a thing. Gyah!

Saints Row IV Third Opinion

In the minority

Saints Row IV Review Screenshot

HIGH Nearly everything unpleasant about The Third is fixed here.

LOW
Steelport is still hella gross to look at.

WTF
The ending features a scene so hideous I thought I'd gotten the bad ending.

How I tried to stop worrying and love the drift

GRID 2 Review Screenshot

HIGH Lovely track environments, delicious vehicle handling, intriguing event variety.

LOW Occasionally aggressive AI behavior, unconscionable amount of grind in single-and multi-player.

WTF The single-player campaign's half-hearted mixture of social media bandwagoning and corporate celebration is truly bizarre.

Need for Speed Rivals Review

Like Dogs Chasing Cars

Need for Speed Rivals

HIGH Narrowly escaping a pursuing squad of police cars and power drifting into the safety of my hideout with hundreds of sounds of speed points under my belt.

LOW For an open world driving game, there are not nearly enough alternative paths and emergent gameplay moments that use the geography.

WTF The non-ironic gritty and serious tone of the "story."

The End of the Road

Trials Evolution: Riders of Doom Screenshot

HIGH More Trials!

LOW The second-to-last Extreme track broke my spirit.

WTF Why does the whole thing skew towards a higher difficulty?
