Risen 3 Review

The Good, The Bad, and The Janky


Risen 3

HIGH Fresh, cheeky dialogue and interesting companions make for an entertaining romp across the high seas

LOW Unavoidable naval combat missions with huge difficulty spikes and no checkpoints

WTF The boss fight vs. an enormous cave spider who spits eggs out of her giant, unnecessarily realistic spider vagina

Mario Kart 8 Review

One over the eight

Mario Kart 8

HIGH Rainbow Road, which is so beautiful and awe -inspiring that epic songs should be penned about it right now and passed down from generation to generation.

LOW The AI has undoubtedly improved, but it's still immensely irritating at times.

WTF It's a toss up between Luigi's death stare and the blue shell still being a thing. Gyah!

Divinity: Original Sin Review

Original and best?


HIGH The Pet Pal trait. Players should be forced to choose this.

LOW Some of the so-called ‘puzzles' are mind-numbingly awful.

WTF The cheese vendor loudly and repeatedly hawking his wares had no cheese to sell despite them being in plain sight on the counter.

Warriors Orochi 3 Ultimate Review

Hammer time.

HIGH Rachel, Sterk and Zhurong all playable in the same game? Do not wake me from this beautiful dream.

Combo Cancel This Port

HIGH That red skeleton violinist guy.

Par for the corpse

Dead Rising 3 Review Screenshot

HIGH Killing 70 zombies in one strike with a propane tank strapped to a traffic light

LOW Forced environmental barriers that arbitrarily preserve story and difficulty integrity.

WTF Where's the jetpack

Sniper Elite 3 Review

Back to the War Crimes

HIGH The sniping-only multiplayer. Wait, did I seriously just say multiplayer was the best part of the game? Huh?

LOW The psychic tank pilots make a return.

WTF Shouldn't I be sniping more? I feel like the title might be false advertising.

The Walking Dead, Season Two: No Going Back Review

...But they did


HIGH The brief chat near the end.

LOW Seriously, there's no "Let's go the OTHER way" choice?

WTF It looks like Clem's drunk in camp though she didn't have a drop.

Just One More Round
