Killer App

HIGH Soaking in those sumptuous visuals.

LOW Finger-swiping QTEs.

WTF Why do I have to clean 100% of the dirt off this artifact with my tired finger when I can already make out the "hidden" image?

Journey Review

To Retail and Beyond

HIGH Surfing the Sunken City in the fading afternoon-absolutely gorgeous.

LOW Can't we have more?

WTF Put on a scarf and fly!

Simply Irresistible

HIGH The wonderfully memorable campaign.

LOW A few cramped multiplayer maps.

WTF The appearance of the standard automatic rifle so late in the game.

Deceptively Good Despite its Flaws

HIGH That stunning horse-riding sequence.

LOW Too many questions without answers, and a plot in search of a soul.

WTF Drake barely survives the desert, but is apparently hydrated enough to run and jump around like a monkey.

Uncharted 3: Drake's Deception Second Opinion

You aren't There

HIGH The hallucinatory sequences in Ubar and Yemen.

LOW Gunfights on the water and in a sandstorm magnify the significant deficiencies of the gunplay.

HIGH My son telling me to jump back onto my horse after I chased down a moving truck with it, jumped into the back, and took out a bad guy.

LOW You’d think Drake has Wolverine-like healing powers after crashing through the floor for the umpteenth time.

WTF A middle-aged Sully convincing a teenage Drake to stay with him. There has to be some international law against that.

inFamous 2 Review

Now with Chain-link Fence Climbing Action

HIGH Navigating the city is still extremely enjoyable.

LOW Vehicle escort missions still suck.

WTF Evil Cole + Kessler skin = Disturbing cut-scenes.

Sports Champions Review

A Game in a Tech Demo's Clothing

Sports Champions Screenshot

HIGH The impossibly tactile feel of nocking an imaginary arrow to a bowstring that doesn't exist.

LOW Volleyball. Incredibly abstracted and not particularly immersive.

WTF In Gladiator Duel, sending opponents soaring weightlessly out of the ring and seeing them smash through background scenery.

God of War III Review

Where Gods go to Die

HIGH: The battle with Hades.

LOW: The underwhelming Labyrinth.

WTF: Kevin Sorbo makes a cameo, but no Lucy Lawless?

God of War III

Game Description: God of War III is a single player action game, exclusive to the PlayStation 3, and the final installment of the God of War trilogy. Containing signature and addictive God of War gameplay — a combination of over-the-top action combat, exploration and puzzle-solving — along with an engrossing mythologically inspired storyline and a selection of new weapons and a new weapons system, it is a fitting conclusion to the much praised God of War franchise.
