HIGH Making five combos and earning three extra moves at the same time.

LOW Backtracking to a shrine to buy more minions.

Violence is a Disease

HIGH That revelatory moment when the game's brutal message finally sinks in.

LOW The ending sadly seems to dodge that brutal message more than it should have.

WTF In a late scene set in the prison, your ability to shoot is inexplicably taken away from you.

Assassin's Creed II Review

How Much Do You Like Running on Rooftops?

HIGH Feeling my stomach pitch climbing the heights of a towering church.

LOW The poorly-planned, hours-long, painfully slow beginning.

WTF Is finding feathers supposed to be fun?

Drakengard 2 Second Opinion

This review is irrelevant... like this game!

HIGH The moment early in the game where the main character must turn on his allies is almost perfect.

LOW The rest of the game is just downhill from there.

WTF Super Saiyans? In MY Drakengard?!

Call of Juarez: Bound in Blood Review

Answer the call, but only if it's not using your peak daytime minutes

HIGH The story and characters ring truly Western.

LOW The action never heats up past a mild simmer.

WTF Why are the one-on-one showdowns so sloppy, random and loose?
