Second Sight – Second Opinion

Stepping up for a second opinion on Free Radical's Second Sight, I find myself dissenting a bit from Andrew's evaluation. Like Señor Fletcher, I've now been through both of the curiously-timed psychic-powered releases mentioned in the main review. Unlike Andrew, I think I'm going to give the edge to Second Sight. I will say that both it and Midway's Psi-Ops: The Mindgate Conspiracy are great, worthwhile games, but to me they are each appealing to different audiences despite the similar content.

TimeSplitters 2 – Review

I tend to enjoy games with a tongue-in-cheek sense of humor, but most don't pull it off very well. Oh sure, lots of games try. Very few games nowadays, in fact, seem unaware of their over-the-top, ridiculous natures. But most don't seem to understand how delicate the balance is between having an ironic or humorous edge and simply allowing the sheer excess of a game overwhelm it to the point of monotony.
