Monster Hunter Tri: Is the Third Time the Charm?

Monster Hunter  Tri Screenshot

Back when Monster Hunter first appeared on the PlayStation 2, I can remember seeing one of the first trailers for it a few months before the game hit. At the time, it was utterly mindblowing and promised potential that players had only dreamed of. Even today, the trailer still looks extremely exciting and full of action. Unfortunately, the reality did not match up to the level of action in that trailer.

Multi is the New Single

HIGH Jumping into a transforming Vital Suit and unleashing hell on enemy troops.

LOW The poor setup for mission 3-3 turns a great battle into a frustrating slog.

WTF Earning customization items is soul-crushingly slow and hatefully random.

Lost Planet 2

Game Description: The next installment in the popular Lost Planet action series, Lost Planet 2 is a third-person shooter which continues the story of humanity's futuristic struggles and attempts at colonization on the planet E.D.N III. A blend of new RPG elements and features that made the original game a huge success, including massive boss battles against the alien Akrid creatures, rugged terrain, mech warfare and dynamic multiplayer support, Lost Planet 2 is sure to please both new and longtime fans of the franchise alike.

Trent Needs Help and Lost Planet 2

Earlier I finished Lost Planet 2 on PlayStation 3. It was a really bizarre experience for a few reasons, but primarily because it started off lukewarm and sort of middling, but then actually managed to get better and more exciting with each successive level. I wasn't feeling too hot on it at first, but the game had completely won me over by the time credits rolled.

HIGH: Chasing an enemy all over the level and finally catching him.

LOW: Getting killed when there's no way I can see it coming.

WTF: The level with the two giant unreeled cassette tapes.

White Knight Chronicles: International Edition Review

Not so Massively Multiplayer

HIGH Babysitting macho physical fighters with my tiny, old, somewhat sinister looking mage.

LOW Some of the most obtuse menus I've ever seen. Whoever was in charge must be a maze fetishist.

WTF Web 2.0? In my JRPG?

Far Cry 2 Second Opinion

Violence is a Disease

HIGH That revelatory moment when the game's brutal message finally sinks in.

LOW The ending sadly seems to dodge that brutal message more than it should have.

WTF In a late scene set in the prison, your ability to shoot is inexplicably taken away from you.
