Quick Review: F.E.A.R. Perseus Mandate 0

F.E.A.R. Perseus Mandate Perseus Mandate is not as good as the original installment of F.E.A.R., though it has it’s moments. The first two or three chapters are quite drab, to say the least. There’s a pretty cool looking two-tiered server room with glass floors, but that’s it. Nothing spectacular happens until the fourth chapter. The fourth chapter and certain parts of the following chapters are the best that F.E.A.R. has ever been. These locations are exceptionally creepy, with lighting and am...

Quick Review: Spectraball 0

Spectraball Spectraball is a marble platformer with some puzzle elements. Basically, you’re a marble and you have to roll around to get to the finish line. There are several worlds split up into multiple stages. Each stage must be completed within a time limit, though you have infinite lives and there are checkpoints along the way to alleviate some of the frustration. There are plenty of moving platforms, bridges, falling rocks, giant leaps and narrow ledges between you and victory. While the ...

Thoughts on Shadowgrounds: Survivor Shadowgrounds is a sci-fi themed shooter which takes place on Ganymede (the third moon of the Jupiter system) and by the year 2096, a colony of eight thousand humans live on Ganymede.

Shadowgrounds: Survivor is the second game in the series. It is also only the second game every created by it’s developer, Froze...

CRYSIS: WARHEADThis was an awesome expansion to the original Crysis, though it ends a bit abruptly. There were numerous set piece battles in Warhead which I enjoyed greatly. Many of these standoffs were larger and more intense than those in the original game. Warhead definitely ramps up the difficulty by throwing more enemies at you all the time, but that removes a lot of the strategic element from the game. In the first Crysis you had the choice of storming in to an area, sneaking in cloaked, ...

Peggle DeluxeTo all of you who haven’t played Peggle yet: What’s the hold up? Are you scared of “casual” games? I assure you, while Peggle may be casual in that it’s pick-up-and-play and go-at-your-own-pace, to actually complete Peggle is far from a casual affair. Some have said that there is no strategy in Peggle beyond shooting the ball in any direction and hoping that something good happens, but they are wrong. Once you get past the basic Adventure Mode you can try your hand at the more adva...

Gravitron 2Gravitron 2 is a retro styled arcade gravity shooter in which you must pilot a spaceship around with the goal of destroying a reactor core and then escaping in to the atmosphere before the reactor explodes. The reactor core is often hidden within a well-guarded chamber, past several gun turrets and laser fields. This game is 100% pure arcade madness. It even has a “cocktail” mode for table-top installations such as those at bars and restaurants. Gravitron rewards accuracy and speed…...

BraidBraid is pure, hardcore, badass mind-fuckery. While time manipulation in games has been done to death, the time manipulation gameplay in Braid still feels fresh and interesting. Also, the ending of the game is so insanely clever and poignant that it had me wide-eyed, shocked in amazement, laughing in amusement and ready to cry. Braid is split up in to 6 “worlds” which are split up in to several levels. At it’s very core: you run from the left side of the screen to the right of the screen, ...

 World of GooIn short: World of Goo is fun, hilarious, clever and definitely worth it’s budget price, so please delay no further in adding this joyous slice of genius to your gaming collection! Running right along side with Braid, World of Goo is much more than what it initially seems to be. While World of Goo starts off as a straight-forward puzzle game where you need to build a tower or a bridge out of cute balls of goo to reach the end of the level, the sheer cleverness and diversity of the s...

Dead SpaceWhile many new games try and rip off the highly-acclaimed games of the past in an attempt to be as popular as them, the knockoffs typically end up failing regardless of how similar they are to the source material. There are also certain concepts that have been done to death now; such as time manipulation. Yet there are games which have shown us that even overused game mechanics such as time manipulation can still be used in a fresh and innovative fashion, e.g., Braid. Dead Space has a...

Fantastic, but flawed. 0

I suggest reading Jeff Gertsman's review first as those are my general sentiments about it - but I can't help but be upset by the inclusion of certain annoying features.1. Delaying gameplay.When I'm replaying a level over and over - I want the process of restarting to be quick.  There are lots of arbitrary delays going on in Bionic Commando Rearmed that are really annoying.  Game designers:  All sequences that are not gameplay, must be possible to accelerate through or bypass to get to the gamep...
