Shadows of the Damned Review

More Boner Jokes than You Can Shake a Dick At

Shadows of the Damned Screenshot

HIGH The interplay between Garcia and Johnson is often quite hilarious. I loved these characters, despite their inherent cheesiness. Oh, and the Evil Dead homage level.

LOW Avoiding a recurring enemy who instantly kills you when she touches you. The game's controls make that far more challenging than it should be at certain points.

WTF Seriously, this whole game is one giant WTF?!? moment.

Alice: Madness Returns Review

Bipolar

HIGH Fantastic art direction and a horrifically surreal tone.

LOW Breaking "crates" and tracking down meaningless collectibles? So '90s.

WTF Are players really supposed to be able to hear the hidden snouts oinking?

Crysis 2 Review

Clothes Really Do Make the Man

HIGH Taking out every single soldier in a level, completely undetected.

LOW Alcatraz's status as a silly silent protagonist.

WTF Why can I bash this door down, but not that one?

Mass Effect 2: Arrival Review

What arrived? My Seven Dollars into EA's account?

HIGH I can finally pack my copy of Mass Effect 2 away.

LOW The mission feels superfluous.

WTF No teammates during the entire DLC? Really?

Bulletstorm Review

Keep Killing

HIGH Wrapping a mine around a grunt's head, then kicking him into a group of other grunts and watching the gibs fly as he detonates.

LOW Every line that comes out of every character's mouth. For the entire game.

WTF You terraformed the planet where (SPOILER) lives?!? WTF!?!

Dragon Age II Review

A Rushed Waste of Time and Money

Dragon Age II Screenshot

HIGH A brief (and fictitious) mid-game scene description from Varric.

LOW Everything else.

WTF The immense drop in quality was inconceivable until I saw it for myself.

Dead Space 2 Review

In Space, No One Can Hear Your Strings

Dead Space 2 Screenshot

HIGH The desperate and well-conceived opening moments of the game.

LOW The conceptually lazy final level.

WTF Why don't they just lock Clarke out of the maintenance tunnels?

Dragon Age: Origins — Witch Hunt Review

This is not the Witch you're Looking for

HIGH: Getting to make the choice I've wanted to make since Origins.

LOW: Enemies that float in midair after I kill them.

WTF: Why could this not have been part of Awakening, at the very least?

Mass Effect 2: Lair of the Shadow Broker Review

Finally!!!

HIGH Getting the long-awaited resolution to a massive loose end.

LOW The best Mass Effect 2 DLC came last.

WTF Who knew Legion was a hardcore gamer?

Dante's Inferno Second Opinion

Hellishly Good

Dante's Inferno Screenshot

HIGH Demolishing hordes of demons with righteous holy light.

LOW Trying to figure out how to stay airborne for eight seconds.

WTF Why is there no second, darker ending for playing the evil side?
