The Last Door: Chapters 1 & 2 Review

The Birds

The Last Door Chapters 1-2 Screenshot

HIGH Almost everything the crows do in the first chapter.

LOW Every moment spent with the wounded crow in my inventory making that awful noise.

WTF So this tiny sparkly thing is in some shallow water underneath a shower, but rather than grab it myself I have to flush it down a drain and catch it at the other end of the pipe with a half-rotted net?

Zeno Clash II Review

Zeno Bash

HIGH Giving a humanoid crustacean a piledriver. The wrestling kind.

LOW Getting locked out of certain environments after traversing them.

WTF There's a few WTF moments in here. There's... a few.

By Baseball Geeks, for Baseball Geeks

HIGH Making a choice on whether to hang onto a young, promising minor leaguer or trade in the hopes of making the playoffs.

LOW Being overwhelmed by the sheer number of options and information available.

WTF Tony Cruz is slugging .510? Really?

Saints Row IV Second Opinion

Johnny Get Your Gat

HIGH "Asha, that lightbulb has a family."

LOW The disappointing "sidequests" are just groups of area-control events you would probably do yourself anyway.

WTF How do you get a simple concept like TK mayhem so wrong?

Saints Row IV Review

Mulligan!

HIGH "Paula Abdul is my spirit animal."

LOW Frequent low-level glitches and technical weirdness.

WTF Seriously Volition… still no booty slider in character creation?

Metro: Last Light—Faction Review

The Good, the Bad and the Average

HIGH The additional freedom afforded during "Kshatriya."

LOW The restrictive, irritating cadence of "Heavy Squad."

WTF Stare those enemies down? They just beat me to death for trying.

Dragon's Crown, Friday Monsters, Brothers and Saints Row IV

Dragon's Crown Screenshot

First, here's my take on Dragon's Crown for PS3/Vita, which you may have heard about thanks to the brouhaha surrounding the hyper-sexualized art style. Personally, I thought it looked great, although everyone has their own preferences. However, it's an incredible game regardless of what it looks like, and it's probably the best beat-'em-up that's ever been made.

The Raven: Legacy of a Master Thief Review

Quoth the Raven

HIGH The environments are expertly crafted and highly atmospheric.

LOW Numerous bugs crop up throughout the adventure.

WTF "I am the God of Fire!"

Storm Second Opinion Review

Partly Cloudy, with a Chance of Thunder

HIGH Serene setting and a welcome thematic change. The more complex puzzles actually challenge players to think.

LOW Some levels present no challenge whatsoever. Mechanical precision using imprecise controls is necessary to execute some solutions.

WTF Getting struck by lightning makes a seed jump?

GameCritics.com Podcast Episode 95: Clearing out the Backlog

This week we attempt to scratch the mountain that is the GameCritics.com backlog by getting to some of those titles that we've always wanted to play, but never made the time for. Now, we have made the time, at least for three of the games. The crew dishes on I Am Alive, Sleeping Dogs, and Heavenly Sword, and more, plus a What We've Been Playing roundtable. Featuring Sinan Kubba, Chi Kong Lui, Brad Gallaway, and Richard Naik.
