HIGH Accidentally dashing over an enemy Pilot and gaining some unearned points.

LOW Accidentally being stepped on by an enemy Titan and giving him some unearned points.

WTF I've played a lot of the campaign and I still don't know why anything is happening.

HIGH That first half hour of putting Hiryu through his paces.

LOW The next five hours doing little more than relentlessly hammering the attack button.

WTF The dialogue in Strider is… man alive. It's… bad.

We are all made of blood

HIGH Cresting the waves in a storm whilst laying siege to a fortress with mortar fire. Arrrrr!

LOW Pointlessly tailing some cretin across the map for the billionth time.

WTF I spotted that revelation about Captain Kidd right off the bat. How could Kenway possibly fail to see it?

A Passing Philanthropist

HIGH Mastering the combat engine and watching enemies explode into piles of loot under a blinding storm of attacks.

LOW The momentum-killing final dungeon.

WTF Some of Adol's dialogue choices are unexpectedly insane.

The Banner Saga Review

Hiking with Vikings

HIGH Setting up four enemy units to be cleared out in a single Warhawk Tempest swing.

LOW The final battle is terribly, terribly designed.

WTF ‘There must be at least 898 of them' is pretty accurate guesswork when estimating enemy numbers.

Killzone: Shadow Fall Review

Shadow Fail

HIGH The multiplayer can provide good times, though the campaign doesn't.

LOW The sadistically awful freefall section littered with instant death moments.

WTF Why can the protagonist suddenly fire rockets out of his face whilst airborne?
