Tekken 7 Review

Lucky Chloe Seven?

HIGH Scraping out a win during a nail-biting slow-motion finish.

LOW The online still needs serious work on PC — connection issues are way too common.

WTF The reason for Akuma’s inclusion in the main storyline is weak.


Mechrunner Review

Pushing The Redline

HIGH Unloading so much ordinance that the boss blows apart before the intro movie finishes.

LOW Being trapped in a dead end, over and over again.

WTF So bosses get free hits? That seems fair.


Ancient Amuletor Review

The Rest Of The Content Must Still Be Lost To History

HIGH The satisfaction of mowing down enemies as the shooter.

LOW The game only features four arenas.

WTF Controlling a virtual puppet with my virtual arms controlled by my real arms.


Dreamfall: Chapters Review

A Compendium Worth Reading

HIGH Anytime Kian talks about his love of Yams.

LOW Checking the concept art before finishing the game.

WTF Yes, I am reading every one of these Diary entries.


Arms Review

 Sweat It Out

HIGH The satisfying muscle aches following a productive session.

Star Trek: Bridge Crew Review

All Hands On Deck!

HIGH Punching it into warp as a fleet of Klingons closed in.

LOW Playing with a helmsman who couldn’t find the heading numbers.

WTF Getting a look at the tactical console on the original Enterprise. How did Chekhov manage it?


Dark Rose Valkyrie Review

By Any Other Name

HIGH A great art style and intriguing fiction…

LOW …undone by an absurd amount of filler and unnecessary mechanical complication

WTF An elite military monster-hunting unit that ends up fighting in its skivvies a third of the time? Buy some armor, kids!
