Indivisible Review

Embracing Tranquility And Chaos

HIGH Well-established characters and robust combat.

LOW It’s not the best at explaining some mechanics.

WTF Literally losing your head in a sporting match.


Fear Effect 2: Retro Helix – Review

Fear Effect 2 ArtWhile I wouldn't go so far as to say that Fear Effect 2 is the digital entertainment equivalent of a cutting-edge novel or soul-searching film, it certainly pushes the envelope of games by going boldly where almost no console titles have gone before in terms of what qualities they are expected to contain, and it manages to do it with panache.

Trine 4 Review

Trine’d So hard And Got So Far

HIGH A return to form for the series.

LOW Missing some of the quirky weirdness of past installments.

WTF How is that seal so cute with its Midsommar head dress?


Digimon Story: Cyber Sleuth Complete

Sheesh… Rookies

HIGH Finally getting one of the di-digivolutions (no that’s not misspelled) to work.

LOW The Bancho Leomon boss fight, which features an attack that instantly kills 2/3 party
members… repeatedly.

WTF One boss consumes a character, who then appears on the boss wearing a ball gag. It’s for kids!


Need For Speed: Heat Review

In Pursuit Of Relevance

HIGH The Day/Night split is both interesting and well implemented.

LOW: The stories in this series continue to be insufferable…

WTF: …which would’ve been more bearable with a healthy dose of FMV, which ain’t here.


The Alliance Alive HD Remastered

Second Time Ain’t The Charm

HIGH Robbins’ dialogue.

LOW The Crystal Realm, awkwardly structured and burdened with a bad dungeon.

WTF More than once, a character meets new people and immediately commits treason on their behalf.
