HIGH Executing a flawless plan of attack in an important story battle.

LOW Sitting through the first ten hours or so as the game sets up its predictable story.

WTF Do I really want to find and try on different outfits for my bad anime-inspired helper?

After playing Hitman: Absolution at PAX Prime, I felt a lot more confident about it and decided to put $5 down at Gamestop in order to play the Sniper Challenge demo level.

Rainbow Moon Review

The Butterfly Effect

HIGH Some of the game's features are refreshingly respectful of the player's time.

LOW Virtually everything else is not.

WTF One female quest-giver explains why she wants her comb fetched: "I want to impress my gallant Gorodo, but first I have to pimp myself."

Orcs Must Die! 2 Review

Sappers Closing In!

Orcs Must Die! 2 Screenshot

HIGH Watching orcs get launched into the abyss/lava/acid/void traps never fails to bring a smile to my face.

LOW Attempting a perfect run, only to have orcs repeatedly slip past when I'm busy elsewhere.

WTF The Sorceress's "clothes" might as well be made of dental floss.

TouchTalk, Volume Two

Welcome back to a semi-regular feature here at GameCritics.com: TouchTalk. While this series was inspired by one of my old features, the Bargain Basement, I've got an all-new focus for an all-new phase in gaming. Rather than highlighting discounted gems in the used section of a retail shop, I'll be reviewing downloadable mobile games and apps that you might want to check out… and maybe some that you'll want to avoid.

Disgaea 3: Absence of Detention Review

Where High School is Literally Hell

HIGH Performing an attack that deals over 9 million in damage.

LOW Level grinding can get tedious.

WTF The post-game abandons any pretense of sanity and slathers itself in crazy sauce.

Endless Space Review

A Spreadsheet with Great Music

Endless Space Screenshot

HIGH The soundtrack easily lulled me into the one-more-turn mentality.

LOW The tooltips and tutorials leave much to be desired.

WTF That's how I control my fleet of galactic destruction?

Sins of a Solar Empire: Rebellion Review

A Joy from Afar

HIGH Blowing up an enemy capital ship as it tries to jump out of the system.

LOW Getting rocked by pirates right as I'm about to mount an attack on my main enemy's homeworld.

WTF Seriously, screw those pirates.

TouchTalk, Volume One

Welcome to the first installment of a brand-new semi-regular feature here at GameCritics.com: TouchTalk. While this series was inspired by one of my old features, the Bargain Basement, I've got an all-new focus for an all-new phase in gaming. Rather than highlighting discounted gems in the used section of a retail shop, I'll be reviewing downloadable mobile games and apps that you might want to check out… and maybe some that you'll want to avoid.

Squids: Wild West Review

Ten-legged Tactics

HIGH A bigger role for gunslinger Clint.

LOW Getting stuck on a level by overlooking a very obvious switch.

WTF When's the next episode coming out?
