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.

ModNation Racers Review

Prepare Yourself for the Rubberband Man

HIGH Fulfilling all the conditions to earn all of a track's prizes and skidding across the finish line in first.

LOW Fulfilling all the conditions to earn all of a track's prizes and getting dropped from first to sixth by attacks within sight of the finish line.

WTF Why did they include this dull story (announcers, skits, etc.) in career mode?

Echoshift Review

Puzzles without Borders

HIGH The same high for all puzzle games: the "a-ha!" moment.

LOW Having to redo the first four casts the same way just so I can reattempt the fifth one again and again is tiresome.

WTF Echochrome had a delicious fast-forward button. Where'd it go?

Heavy Rain Second Opinion

The Game of Life

Heavy Rain  Screenshot

HIGH Surviving the climactic battle with Mad Jack.

LOW Glitches can absolutely kill the impact of some scenes.

WTF Clown: "Sir, you haven't paid me yet!" Ethan: "Keep the Change." Clown: "Sir, you haven't paid me yet!" Ethan: "Keep the change." Clown: "Sir, you haven't paid me yet!" Repeat 10 times.

Heavy Rain Review

Wait... Why Did He... That Doesn't Make Any... Uggghhhhhh...

Heavy Rain Screenshot

HIGH The Saw-esque anticipation of something horrifying.

LOW The weak, head-scratching reveal of the murderer's identity.

WTF The install screen that made me bitterly regret never learning how to properly fold a paper airplane.
