Shadow Warrior 2 (XBO) Review

Many Highs. One Big Lo.

HIGH Hilarious, breakneck gameplay that continually offers new variety.

LOW Player models pale in comparison to the effects and environments.

WTF Lo Wang begins to get a little grating by the ten-hour mark.


Conarium Review

You Don’t Want to Know What the Third Eye Saw

HIGH Shoggoth chase!

LOW The developers completely failing to flag something crucial, costing me an hour of backtracking.

WTF Why is smashing walls so satisfying?


Impact Winter Review

If The Cold Doesn’t Get You…

HIGH Figuring out my rifle and executing that damn wolf.

LOW Having to restart after three in-game days because the food system wasn’t well-explained.

WTF Dear Main Character: Please put on pants. It’s freezing out there.


Cryptark Review

Rogues… In… Spaaaaaaaace….

 

HIGH Wiping the Cryptark out by firing my super-weapon over and over…

LOW …after having the game crash the first time I tried to do that.

WTF Enemies can fly through walls now? That seems fair.


The Golf Club 2 Review

A Diamond In Some Deep Rough

HIGH A limitless amount of user-generated content, a very reasonable price point.

LOW Extremely steep learning curve for those accustomed to EA’s golf titles.

WTF Unforgivable graphical stutter on backswings that turns drives into crashes.


MLB The Show 17 Review

Something Old, Something New

HIGH Basking in the beautiful and surprisingly alive stadiums.

LOW The feeling you’ve done this before. Many times.

WTF Baserunning is still a disaster.
