HIGH Incredible vistas around every corner.

LOW The whole experience feels a little too automated.

WTF The preposterous voice acting of Mathias, the Solarii leader.

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.

Max: The Curse of Brotherhood Review

Is There Really a Curse?

HIGH Rocketing through the air over a chasm before miraculously drawing a vine to save myself from certain death.

LOW The hiding places of some collectibles are flat-out unfair.

WTF I hated that monster until I was killing him - where are these tears coming from?

Thief Review

Stealing Stuff In Dark Places

HIGH Garrett is flowing, smooth, dark and deadly.

LOW Too many illogical, immersion-shattering instances of weirdness.

WTF Where the hell does Garrett carry all the stuff he swipes?!?

Dead Rising 3 Second Opinion

It's the End of the World as We Know It

Dead Rising 3 Review Screenshot

HIGH Wading into a sea of zombies and slaughtering them all with one of the game's ridiculous combo weapons.

LOW Traveling all the way across the map to complete a quest, then being told I need to travel back again to get back to the quest-giver.

WTF Who makes zombie porn during the apocalypse?

Tedium Can Fly

HIGH Saori Kobayashi's magnificent soundtrack.

LOW So this is what next-gen graphics look like, eh?
