    Fake Quake

    Chasm is a 1997 FPS made by the Ukrainian Action Forms Ltd, who would later make Vivisector and the better-known-but-still-obscure Cryostasis: The Sleep of Reason. It's heavily inspired by the origina...

  • bhlaab wrote a review of GoldenEye 007.
    Never Say Never Again

    This is not a remake of Rare's Nintendo 64 game. It's also not an attempt to go back and make a game that's more faithful to the film than the old hardware could have managed. If anything it's much le...

    On Her Majesty's Secret Serviceable At Best

    When you think of James Bond as a video game franchise what comes to mind? One-liners? Crazy gadgets? Espionage? Some sort of sexy lady sidekick? Throw 'em all out the fuckin window because this isn't...

    For Your GAMING ENJOYMENT Only

    I accidentally played this after Nightfire, having come to believe that Nightfire came out first. That I was mistaken was immediately obvious upon booting it up, since Agent Under Fire is even more ol...

    Short But Sloppy

    Red Faction 2 is kind of like if Halo had a more Quake-like focus on explosives. You (more or less) start the game with a grenade launcher that can hold 30 rounds, and you can hold 30 hand grenades on...

    Not Perfect, But Good Enough

    This is a well put together indie Metroidvania, although it is shockingly short for the genre. The map is quite small; I'd estimate it to be about 1/3 of the size of Castlevania: Symphony of the Night...

    Quest of The Avatar: Forsaken Virtues

    The game is a mix of 3D and 2D side-scroller platforming. Two of the playable characters, Modern Sonic and The Avatar, will switch between the two based on context. Classic Sonic, the third playable c...

  • bhlaab wrote a review of KISS: Psycho Circus - The Nightmare Child.
    Detroit Bad Game City

    This game should be called Todd Macfarlane's Spider Circus! I'm not a KISS head by any means but I'd actually prefer that to a game full of Todd MacFarlane's twisted clowns! There are a few times wher...

    A great open world survival horror game

    The Evil Within 2 would be a great open world survival horror game if it was actually an open world survival horror game. That's what they sold it as, and I bought it a year after release thinking tha...

    Great Cast, Great Story, Good Game

    Tales of Berseria tells a surprisingly nuanced, funny, and affecting story with passable action-based combat filling in the gaps.Its main strength is how it rides the line between following JRPG trope...
