Shin Megami Tensei IV Review

Fafnir, I Choose You!

HIGH Blowing away a boss well above my level in a single turn with some well-chosen elemental attacks, timely smirks, and a lucky crit.

LOW My previous try at that boss, where my ally's poor choice of elemental attack caused the boss to smirk and wipe my party with just two attacks.

WTF Is that a penis demon? I think it's a penis demon.

Saints Row IV Second Opinion

Johnny Get Your Gat

HIGH "Asha, that lightbulb has a family."

LOW The disappointing "sidequests" are just groups of area-control events you would probably do yourself anyway.

WTF How do you get a simple concept like TK mayhem so wrong?

Saints Row IV Review

Mulligan!

HIGH "Paula Abdul is my spirit animal."

LOW Frequent low-level glitches and technical weirdness.

WTF Seriously Volition… still no booty slider in character creation?

Metro: Last Light—Faction Review

The Good, the Bad and the Average

HIGH The additional freedom afforded during "Kshatriya."

LOW The restrictive, irritating cadence of "Heavy Squad."

WTF Stare those enemies down? They just beat me to death for trying.

Sniper: Ghost Warrior 2 Review

Off Target

HIGH Nailing a long range shot without gameplay assists.

LOW Feeling like little more than a dancing puppet throughout the game.

WTF Spotters are undoubtedly the real heroes, not snipers.

Deadly Premonition: The Director's Cut Second Opinion

First Glances, Second Chances

Deadly Premonition: The Director's Cut Screenshot

HIGH "Let's re-release Deadly Premonition!"

LOW "Let's add a ridiculous story bit that confuses Joe Gamer even more!"

WTF "Let's charge for DLC when the game is almost exactly the same!"

The Walking Dead: 400 Days Review

A Shift in Perspective

The Walking Dead: 400 Days Screenshot

HIGH "Would you rather…"

LOW Wyatt's lightweight story.

WTF We don't see any of what happened after the stories but before the epilogue?

Call of Juarez: Gunslinger Review

Call of Juarez: Humdinger

Call of Juarez: Gunslinger Screenshot

HIGH Getting a high combo streak and topping it off by swerving out of the path of an otherwise fatal gunshot.

LOW The dueling is standard fare, and not much fun.

WTF According to Silas, he's crossed paths with nearly every notable figure from that time period.

Far Cry 3: Blood Dragon Review

Skewed Futuristics

Far Cry 3: Blood Dragon Screenshot

HIGH When "Power Core" plays during intense moments.

LOW Dying because the healing animation takes too long to finish.

WTF Pretty much the entire game, but in a good way.

DmC: Devil May Cry—Vergil's Downfall Second Opinion

The Devil's Uprising

DmC: Devil May Cry—Vergil's Downfall Screenshot

HIGH An all new fighting style to smash some skulls with.

LOW Those animated cut-scenes are extraordinarily hideous.

WTF Vergil's unlockable skin looks very, very silly.
