Dark Fall: The Journal

Game Description: Returning from work you listen to a frightened and cryptic voice message from your brother, a talented architect redeveloping the old Dowerton station in Dorset, England. Boarding a train to meet him, you travel to Dowerton alone, wondering what adventure you may be embarking on... When you arrive, the train is empty and the station is deserted. You begin to explore--the train tunnels, the station, the adjoining hotel, and the grounds--and discover that although no one is there, you are not alone. Finding artifacts, ancient documents, and a valuable journal, you realize that the area holds a history of disappearances and hauntings dating back centuries.

Dark Fall: The Journal – Review

Chiding a game for being a perfect embodiment of its genre is dangerous, and runs the risk of missing the point altogether. But I can't help feeling that the genre lacks one crucial feature that forever cripples it: there is no risk of failure.

Tak and the Power of JuJu – Review

A sense of humor goes a long way, and Tak and the Power of JuJu is a pretty funny game. Of course, it is a Nickelodeon property so it brings with it the same kind of quirky, off-kilter humor as other Nick 'toons like Rocko's Modern Life and SpongeBob SquarePants. A big difference here though is that Tak doesn't have his own cartoon show (at least not yet). Anyway, it's a good thing that Tak is funny. The actual gameplay left me crying at times, and I really needed a good laugh or two.

Voodoo Vince – Second Opinion

Voodoo Vince is easily the best platformer currently on the Xbox, but saying that is a lot like saying George W. Bush is currently the best president of the United States living in the White House—there ain't a whole lot of competition. However, even if there were more games of the platforming variety on Microsoft's big black box, Vince would still be worthy of attention. While it may not be the most original game on the block, it certainly does a fine job of taking the core elements of the platforming genre and implementing them into a game that looks more aesthetically interesting than any comparable game on the market.

Alter Echo – Second Opinion

After I managed to complete the final "rhythm" puzzle in Alter Echo (which requires near super-human hand-eye coordination to pull off), I found myself sitting in front of my TV, PlayStation 2 controller dangling from hand, craving more.
