Summoner: A Goddess Reborn – Review

Being a game critic is a little like being a soldier. Armies keep their countries safe; we play problematic games so other people don't have to. Spending 45 hours with Summoner: A Goddess Reborn won't get me the Medal of Honor—Daniel Weissenberger deserves that award, hands down. Nevertheless, I hope that I can protect others from the game's badness. Don't get me wrong—Summoner: A Goddess Reborn has some good ideas. They're simply crushed by its technical flaws and boring, boxed-in gameworld.

Full Spectrum Warrior – Review

Full Spectrum Warrior wants to start an entirely new genre (one that I really plan to support wholeheartedly) that attempts to capture the dullness of reality. Okay, that seemed a whole lot harsher than I actually meant it to be. In fact, I've been one of the biggest proponents of making videogames, especially ones set in the "real world," more realistic (whatever that means), but FSW really brings that notion to a whole new level in simulating the military experience as long periods of stultifying boredom punctuated by sudden, horrible violence.

Realistic animations for squad members—motions for soldiers were modeled after combat veterans Xbox Live support for teaming up and facing terrorists and guerillas in realistic, amazing urban combat.

Sphinx and the Cursed Mummy – Consumer Guide

According to ESRB, this game contains: Fantasy Violence

Sphinx and the Cursed Mummy – Review

No one is ever going to confuse Sphinx with Zelda, but that doesn't mean this quirky little action title is without merit. Sphinx may not succeed in all the areas of game development, but it does more than enough things right to justify spending some time with it. Gamers who enjoy lighthearted action with a pleasant mix of combat, puzzle-solving, and platforming elements will find Sphinx an interesting diversion.

Sphinx and the Cursed Mummy

Game Description: Sphinx and the Cursed Mummy puts you into the midst of an epic quest to find the ancient crowns of Egypt. You take on the character of Sphinx interacting with hundreds of supernatural monstyers while traveeling across levels spanning the globe. Each region is linked together by magic portals, but in order to reach them, you have to solve puzzles, defeat bosses, and learn new abilities.

Tak and the Power of JuJu – Second Opinion

The first thing that struck me about Tak was the striking similarities to Jak & Daxter: The Precursor Legacy. The sprawling jungle filled worlds and collection-based gameplay were quite obviously Jak inspired, and the picturesque environments even improved upon The Precursor Legacy on some levels. But the game quickly crosses the line from homage to blatant rip-off; even little things like the pause menu screen and Tak's exclamations upon completing an objective seem taken directly from Jak.
