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?


First Look: Far Cry 5

Freedom. Faith. Firearms.

It’s upon these tenets that the citizens of Hope County, Montana have built their lives. These are the pillars by which they live, work, and teach their children. These are the fundamental convictions that the residents of this small, middle-American county turn to for guidance in how to come together as a community. They are also the tenets that a dangerous cult twists and perverts for their own ends in Far Cry 5.


For Honor Review

At Least There’s No Tower Climbing

HIGH A duel against a player of equal skill level.

LOW What passes for a single-player campaign.

WTF “You cannot join this session because it is full.” Then why did you put me there, game?!


Ghost Recon Wildlands Preview

Ubisoft recently invited GameCritics for an extended session of their upcoming Ghost Recon Wildlands, and I’m happy to say that even after playing it for four hours straight, I still want to hop right back into the world they created. Wildlands dramatically freshens up this long-standing franchise by setting the action in an open- world, fictionalized version of Bolivia.


For Honor Beta Preview

A few months ago, I played the alpha build of For Honor, Ubisoft’s multiplayer-centric knights-versus-Vikings-versus-samurai dueling game. I mostly loved it for its authentic-looking visual design and deceptively deep combat engine, but had some concerns regarding its accessibility and barrier to mastery.


Assassin’s Creed: The Ezio Collection Review

Nothing Is Good. Everything Is Permitted.

HIGH  These three titles represent the most memorable story development in the series.

LOW  These three titles represent the laziest upgrade package on modern consoles.

WTF  Assassin’s Creed II’s gameplay has aged as well as dollar-store parmesan.


Steep Review

Doing 1080s In A Winter Wonderland

HIGH Gorgeous snowy mountains to explore on the ground or in the air.

LOW: The mountains are filled with forgettable missions and events.

WTF: The first person GOPRO camera view is so out of control it’s unusable.
