HIGH Logging in to see you've earned credits when friends failed to beat your scores.

LOW Dropping into another bottomless pit a hundred yards from the finish line.

WTF Why does reversing time only affect me and not anyone else?

As Goes the Heavyweights, So Goes Boxing

Fight Night Champion Screenshot

HIGH Brian Kenny's soft hair reporting on my last fight.

LOW Controlling a fight for nine rounds, only to be instantly knocked out by poor collision detection.

WTF The feeling of watching my boxer, with my face, get pummeled mercilessly into unconsciousness.

HIGH Breaking through a six man gang tackle to rush for a touchdown.

LOW Having to play the fight for the fumble mini-game when I was the only one near the ball when I fell on it.

WTF Enough with the measuring, it's clearly a first down.

Madden NFL 08 (Wii) – Review

I've played a lot of Madden over the years (and had experience with the other major series before EA got the NFL exclusivity rights), but I'm not one of those guys who plays each year's release. In fact, looking over my Madden collection is sort of like looking at the fossil record of videogame history—I tend to only buy a new Madden release whenever a new console launches, then I don't buy it again until the next generation begins.

Madden NFL 08 (Wii)

Game Description: Why just watch NFL football on TV when you can take an active role in the game with Madden NFL 08 by Electronic Arts? Madden NFL 08 lets you control the running game like never before. Step up as the lead blocker to create a hole, then take control of the tailback and smash through, overpower, or slash away from would-be tacklers as you fight for every yard. Innovative rushing controls give you a game-breaking ground attack featuring all-new jukes, cutbacks, and the distinct running styles of your favorite backs. Between the tackles or in the open field, run to daylight with Madden NFL 08.

NASCAR 08 – Review

NASCAR 08 allows players to live the experience of driving around in a circle over and over again for up to three hours at a time. I hope it doesn't sound like I'm being glib, because that's a literal description of the sport being simulated.

NHL 08 – Review

I think it would do most developers well to remember that every videogame is someone's first videogame. NHL 08 is the most egregious example I've seen of this problem in a long while. It's a wonderful hockey simulator that, through its total unwillingness to instruct me on how to play, proved far more frustrating than I'm sure the developers had hoped.
