HIGH The satisfaction of seeing a zombie’s head go flying after I finally found the axe.
LOW Getting crushed ten times in a row because of awkward controls and a too-tight countdown.
WTF The entirety of the ratman’s world

A Failure of Epic Proportions

MN9

HIGH The hunt for Mighty No. 8.

LOW Falling onto spikes that were obscured by a text box.

WTF How did the idea of facechecking enemies to kill them even get off the drawing board?

The post-apocalypse is a cruel mistress

LOW Scroll, scroll and scroll again through disconnected menus.

WTF Continuously shooting wide of enemies, even at close range.

Risen 3 Review

The Good, The Bad, and The Janky

Risen 3

HIGH Fresh, cheeky dialogue and interesting companions make for an entertaining romp across the high seas

LOW Unavoidable naval combat missions with huge difficulty spikes and no checkpoints

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.

Saints Row 4: Enter The Dominatrix Review

Everybody Walk The Dinosaur

Saint's Row 4 Enter the Dominatrix

HIGH The ‘deleted scenes’ premise and the stellar ending.

LOW The gameplay in the missions is kinda lame.

WTF The whole thing.

While the Saints Row franchise has always been irreverent and over-the-top, those who only see it as crazy are selling the series (and its developers) short.
