Shenmue I & II Review

I See

HIGH Offered an unprecedented level of detail for its time.

LOW The ludicrous maze-like layout of the Yellow Head Building.

WTF The absolutely bonkers left turn Shenmue II takes in its final moments.


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…


Total War: Warhammer 2 Review

Just Call It Total Warhammer Already

HIGH Successfully flanking siege engines with massive monstrosities is a hoot.

LOW The loading times add up over the length of a standard campaign.

WTF Lizards riding dinosaurs.


Yakuza Kiwami Review

Ten Years In The Can

HIGH There’s been a lot more Majima added to the original content.

LOW The enemy AI makes for fairly unsatisfying fights.

WTF Those Virtua Fighter 4: Final Tuned cabinets aren’t playable, damn it to hell!


Freedom Planet Review

No, I don’t Know Why It’s Called Freedom Planet

HIGH Landing a perfect spin dash on a boss.

LOW Cutscenes of this length feel out of place in a game like this.

WTF: THEY DON’T……NEED…….OXYGEN!
