Practical Intelligence Quotient – Review

Intelligence is a complex thing, and the proper way to gauge it is not easily performed, or even clear. Everyone has heard about IQ tests and whether or not they're valid—cultural issues come into play, the value of one kind of intelligence over another, and several other factors make estimating such an intangible thing a sticky proposition better left to intellectuals and specialists.

Armored Core: Formula Front – Review

This time around, FromSoft gave their high-tech third-person robot battling a much-needed shakeup in the transition from PS2 to PSP. The bulk of the game is intact with its insane amount of weaponry and parts to tinker with, the mech construction and fine-tuning still the same art form that it ever was.

Grand Theft Auto: Liberty City Stories – Review

The most common bit of praise that will probably be heaped on Grand Theft Auto: Liberty City Stories is how well it has made the jump to a portable system. Where it stumbles is that it has brought every one of the Grand Theft Auto (GTA) series' faults along too, before adding a few new ones of its own—problems that are only magnified by the game's portability.

Infected – Review

The third time is the charm for the bad boys from Planet Moon studios, an eccentric group of developers known for their sense of humor and offbeat games. Although Giants: Citizen Kabuto had its moments and Armed & Dangerous had some good ideas, in my opinion their latest release is their best effort yet.

MediEvil Resurrection – Review

In 1998, an underdog action game called MediEvil hit the PlayStation. Although it didn't make much of a splash, its likable undead hero and reasonably solid play led into a sequel and something resembling minor cult status among those keeping an eye on the fringe. Fast-forward seven years and exchange the PlayStation for the PSP. MediEvil Resurrection may have a few tweaks and go a little easier on the eyes, but it's essentially the same game. The main difference? Instead of a small splash, it slips silently into the water and sinks to the bottom.
