Immortal: Unchained Review

 Nothing But Bits

HIGH Some strong visual design… in spots.

LOW Too many to count, but those damn teleporting enemies rank high.

WTF Arlen is one of the messiest boss battles I’ve ever seen.


Shio Review

Not Quite What Dreams Are Made Of

HIGH The well-designed levels allow for quick, smooth action.

LOW Too many sections slow that action down.

WTF I was not expecting the animation for quitting a level. Yikes!


Yakuza Kiwami 2 Review

Double Dragon

HIGH There are some amazing nods to the events of Yakuza 0.

LOW Catching occasional glimpses of Yakuza 2‘s antiquated design shining through.

WTF Virtua Fighter 2 on ‘Easy’ may be the hardest fighting game I’ve ever played.


Valkyria Chronicles 4 Review

Just When You Thought It Was Safe To Invade Gallia…

HIGH Climbing to the top of a ruin to fire a rocket into an enemy’s weak point.
LOW Losing that damn wounded sniper mission over and over again.
WTF How the Battleship’s engine gets fixed…


Alter Army Review

Action Amidst A Forgotten World

HIGH Stylish, high-energy action.

LOW Gamebreaking bugs are still being patched.

WTF Who is this character wearing green stretch pants without a shirt?


H1Z1: Battle Royale Review

Better Than Radical Heights, I Guess

HIGH The usual thrill of placing high among such a large group of players.

LOW The game is ugly to the point of being difficult to read.

WTF Incentivizing cosmetic rewards in a game with zero visual panache.
