Falling out of love

Skydive: Proximity Flight Review Screenshot

HIGH BASE jumping without the risk of breaking every bone in my body.

LOW
Little challenge, repetitive music, short length.

WTF
So I guess Dracula just woke up one day and decided to go BASE jumping?

Saints Row IV Third Opinion

In the minority

Saints Row IV Review Screenshot

HIGH Nearly everything unpleasant about The Third is fixed here.

LOW
Steelport is still hella gross to look at.

WTF
The ending features a scene so hideous I thought I'd gotten the bad ending.

Mickey's Mousecapades

Castle of Illusion Review Screenshot

HIGH Someone had fun making this game, and it really shows...

LOW ...Except in the unwieldy underwater segments.

WTF Of all the Disney women Mizrabel could go after, she chooses the anthromorphic mouse? I don't even want to know what's about.

Castlevania: Lords of Shadow 2 Review

What is a man? A miserable little pile of... awesome!

Castlevania: Lords of Shadow 2

HIGH Taking out a horde of enemies flawlessly while moving like lightning.

LOW The stealth section in the garden needs some tweaking.

WTF This game's Metacritic score. What the hell is wrong with people?

When Firefly is the highlight of your Batman game, you have a serious problem

Batman Arkham Origins Review Screenshot

HIGH Everything involving Firefly, minus his dialogue.

LOW Everything involving Bane, including his dialogue.

WTF If I need to sneak into the police station without drawing attention, why am I fistfighting the entire Gotham Police Department?

Titanfall Beta Preview

Titan fell

My first and only experience with multiplayer-only online shooters was a few years back when I reviewed Battlefield 2142, a game that features the exact same premise and publisher as Titanfall. Judging it against its most similar competition, Titanfall is a far better game than B:2142, but leaving it there would be to damn the game with faint praise.

State of Decay Second Opinion

The Forever Dead

State of Decay Review Screenshot

HIGH The desperate thrill of running out of bullets and finishing off a zombie horde with a wrench.

LOW All of my hard-gathered resources disappearing because the game was broken for a week.

WTF Ah, a dynamite suicide vest. That'll teach those zombies for tearing my guts out!

Assassin's Creed Liberation HD Review

Shackled

Assassin's Creed: Liberation Review Screenshot

HIGH Exploring the cenotes to find artifacts.

LOW Ugh, a mission with Connor.

WTF So I guess I just exit this warehouse and... OH GOD A BEAR!

GRID 2 Review

How I tried to stop worrying and love the drift

GRID 2 Review Screenshot

HIGH Lovely track environments, delicious vehicle handling, intriguing event variety.

LOW Occasionally aggressive AI behavior, unconscionable amount of grind in single-and multi-player.

WTF The single-player campaign's half-hearted mixture of social media bandwagoning and corporate celebration is truly bizarre.
