Tower of Guns Review

Strafing the Circle

Tower of Guns Review Screenshot

HIGH Spotting a seemingly unreachable area in a small room, then finding the large crate maze that led to it.

LOW Getting through Logistics perfectly, only to get taken out by the Egg Scrambler.

WTF Hugbot Alley.

Titanfall Beta Preview

Titan fell

My first and only experience with multiplayer-only online shooters was a few years back when I reviewed Battlefield 2142, a game that features the exact same premise and publisher as Titanfall. Judging it against its most similar competition, Titanfall is a far better game than B:2142, but leaving it there would be to damn the game with faint praise.

Fightback Review

Arcade Revenge

Fightback Review Screenshot

HIGH Perfectly dodging two samurai and taking them both down, then nailing a biker who tried to sneak in an attack while I was busy.

LOW Just as I cleared a difficult floor with a Perfect, the game crashed.

WTF The samurai helmets seem like they're pushing the themed-gang motif a little too far.

State of Decay Second Opinion

The Forever Dead

State of Decay Review Screenshot

HIGH The desperate thrill of running out of bullets and finishing off a zombie horde with a wrench.

LOW All of my hard-gathered resources disappearing because the game was broken for a week.

WTF Ah, a dynamite suicide vest. That'll teach those zombies for tearing my guts out!

Max: The Curse of Brotherhood Review

Is There Really a Curse?

MAX: The Curse of the Brotherhood Review Screenshot

HIGH Rocketing through the air over a chasm before miraculously drawing a vine to save myself from certain death.

LOW The hiding places of some collectibles are flat-out unfair.

WTF I hated that monster until I was killing him - where are these tears coming from?

Assassin's Creed Liberation HD Review

Shackled

HIGH Exploring the cenotes to find artifacts.

LOW Ugh, a mission with Connor.

WTF So I guess I just exit this warehouse and... OH GOD A BEAR!

UFO Dad Review

Grilling me softly with his song.

UFO Dad Review Screenshots

HIGH When the whole thing finally ‘clicks.'

LOW Dying out of nowhere for seemingly no reason during a solid run.

WTF This entire experience. Alien invasion thwarted by grilled meats...?

GRID 2 Review

How I tried to stop worrying and love the drift

GRID 2 Review Screenshot

HIGH Lovely track environments, delicious vehicle handling, intriguing event variety.

LOW Occasionally aggressive AI behavior, unconscionable amount of grind in single-and multi-player.

WTF The single-player campaign's half-hearted mixture of social media bandwagoning and corporate celebration is truly bizarre.

Blackguards Review

Everyone's a Villain

Blackguards Review Screenshot

HIGH Realizing at the beginning of the fourth chapter what I'd actually been doing.

LOW Every moment and battle involving Bailiff Lasca.

WTF My nimble hunter slips and falls every time she tries to cross a puddle, but nobody, not even the dwarf, stumbles while trying to run through a knee-deep swamp?

Montague's Mount Review

Monty, this seems strange to me

Montague's Mount Review Screenshot

HIGH A puzzle where a turbine the player can't turn is rotated by the air currents rising off a few candles. Hey, at least I got a laugh out of it.

LOW The incredibly irritating stagger affecting the main character's walk at the start of the game.

WTF So the combination to this safe is just written on a note in the drawer underneath the safe?
