DOA:X With Cars 0

 It's odd to suggest that a racing game is relaxing, but Test Drive Unlimited 2 continues the original game's concept of being more of laid back cruising game than an actual racer, where you drive exotic cars leisurely around tropical locations. There are races, certainly, but they're not really the game's main draw and you'll likely spend more time exploring the islands in the game than racing against the AI.And the game is better for that, as the races themselves are either frustratingly hard ...

Thoroughly mediocre 0

 Nier is one of the most inconsistent games I've ever played. It has a handful of good qualities and some design decisions so baffling that it's incredible the game was allowed to proceed to certification. It's technically a JRPG, but calling that is an awful stretch as it plays out much more like a God of War clone with fetch quests. And courier quests. I guess it has a fishing minigame, which is something that all JRPGs have too, but still. The story pits you as Nier, out to find a cure for hi...

Adorably Shallow 0

 Costume Quest is one of those games that gives a good first impression. It has a nicely defined, clean art style, reminiscient of Animal Crossing or Earthbound, a whimsical sense of humour and simple game mechanics. The main thrusts of the game are mild adventure style item hunts and RPG battling. In order to proceed further and rescue your sibling from the clutches of the monsters hell-bent on stealing candy from your town, you need to acquire new costumes. Many of them have abilities that can...

Sterile and uninspired 0

This fall marks the first time where we are truly swamped with full-band plastic instrument games. Each of them, ideally, should bring something unique to the table to distinguish themselves from one another. Rock Band has its hook via DLC, and copious and regular amounts of it. Guitar Hero: World Tour has a grab bag of me-too and legitimately unique features like the music creator. And Rock Revolution distinguishes itself from the other two games by sucking, hard. First off, there is no denyi...

Beautifully campy, full of over-the-top violence and buxom women. 0

The original Sin was good, uncomplicated, violent and cheesy fun. It was also unfortunate enough to hit shelves at the same time as Half-Life, which, well, ended up being one of the most pivotal games in years. Needless to say, Sin got a bit lost in the shuffle - almost undeservedly so, as the game was a lot of fun to play even if it was a bit straightforward. Emergence is a sequel of sorts offered up in episodic gaming form - like Half-Life 2's piecemeal chapters, Emergence is the first segmen...

Showering your enemy with their own viscera 0

Is it wrong to enjoy raining blood and body parts on the heads of your enemies? Of course, in order to do so you have to land one or two cocktails (or more...nothing wrong with excessive explosions) in their midst and hope the fuse doesn't fail. Then you'll be rewarded with a handful of muffled booms, cries of dismay, and several completely unlucky soldiers bursting at the seams and sending their flesh and entrails spinning high into the air, bouncing down off their comrades' heads, and staining...

Cars with eyeballs 0

Way back in the middle of the SNES days Nintendo introduced the FX chip in a number of its cartridges. As per the usual naming conventions started with the Super Nintendo and putting 'Super' in front of half the game titles and later continued with the Nintendo 64 and putting '64' after half the game titles, FX games were denoted with the FX. Star Fox FX was the first of its kind, sporting flat-shaded polygonal graphics roughly on par with what Sega's 32X would later produce. They certainly were...

Arguably the best RPG of all-time 0

The two main RPG styles are rarely broken - Japanese RPGs love their part fantasy part sci-fi settings with tween characters and Western ones are quite content with their monogomous relationship with Dungeons & Dragons. Occasionally you get a game that tiptoes out of such a description, but not very often. That in itself is enough reason to take a peek at Planescape: Torment, as while it carries D&D designation it takes that setting (and even style of gameplay) and warps it. With excelle...
