Red Dead Redemption 2  Add to game list
Rating of: 4.5/5

Bigger, More Beautiful, and More Refined

Red Dead Redemption 2 is a fantastic game that tells great stories, provides beautiful, lush, and expansive environments and can provide practically endless hours of entertainment barring you have the endurance and will power to get through the slow parts.

Red Dead Redemption 2 is the sequel to Red Dead Redemption which came out on PS3 in 2010. But, the story isn't a sequel, It's actually a ...

Super Mario Land 2: 6 Golden Coins  Add to game list
Rating of: 2/5

On Handheld Esoterica and Suppressed Memories

“Super Mario Land 2: 6 Golden Coins” (“SML2”) is a game I haven’t really thought about in nearly 30 years. I was 11 or 12 years old when this thing was released for the original Game Boy Brick in 1992, and like most handheld games, I found it to be enjoyable enough when played on the Super Game Boy, but ultimately forgettable. Having just recently experienced the utter disappointment of...

Super Mario Maker 2  Add to game list
Rating of: 3.5/5

Make It ‘Til You Fake It.

Four short years after the release of “Super Mario Maker” on the ill-fated WiiU (and three years after said game was ported to the cannibalistic 3DS), Nintendo had completely moved onto a new generation of hardware with the Switch, as that company has been wont to do since their very beginnings. Numerous WiiU (and fewer 3DS) games suddenly found themselves being re-released once Nintendo had ...

Pillars of Eternity II: Deadfire  Add to game list
Rating of: 4/5

Roll the Old Chariot Along

I was not, actually, expecting to see a direct sequel to “Pillars of Eternity” after it helped to bring the Role-Playing genre back from the brink of extinction in 2015. However, that game proved enough of a success for Obsidian Entertainment – the formerly Single-“A” developer forged from the remains of Black Isle Studios after Interplay’s collapse back in the day, currently subsidia...

Mass Effect: Andromeda  Add to game list
Rating of: 3.5/5

Mass Defect: Andromeda Tries Hard, Falls Short

Mass Effect had a pretty big impact on the gaming landscape but most people now remember it for one thing: how it ended. While Mass Effect was a good start, Mass Effect 2 was nearly perfect, Mass Effect 3 took was nearly as good... until the end ruined it for pretty much everyone. Mass Effect: Andromeda tries to take things in a new direction - a different story, different characters and a differ...

Tekken Advance  Add to game list
Rating of: 3/5

Stripped down version of Tekken that employs scaled sprites rather than polygonal fighters and only 2 attack buttons which makes it feel more like an approximation of Tekken than the real deal. Not a bad attempt but it doesn't hold a candle to the fully 3D versions.

Star Wars: Shadows of the Empire  Add to game list
Rating of: 4/5

Essentially Rogue Squadron meets Doom, Shadows Of The Empire does a pretty good job of emulating the Star Wars universe and although the shooting and FPS sections are probably not quite strong enough to hold up on their own, as alternating sub-games they work well. A free aim option would've improved things but good enough fun as it stands.

Tomb Raider: Underworld  Add to game list
Rating of: 3.5/5

A quality platform adventure that's glossier and slicker with more fluid movement and improved combat compared to the previous game. Lara may look better in a wetsuit but Nathan Drake still rules the roost however.

Life is Strange: Before the Storm  Add to game list
Rating of: 4/5

There is No Calm Before This Storm

Life is Strange was a huge hit for DONTNOD, garnering critical and fan acclaim alike, along with awards to show for it. I was a big fan myself that, along with Telltale's Walking Dead, represents one of the best adventure games of the last decade. A followup had to be done - but when it was announced that not only a different studio was taking over - people were rightfully skeptical. While the ga...

God of War  Add to game list
Rating of: 4/5

Older, Wiser, Bigger, Better

When the first God of War was released on Playstation 2 in 2005, it was a huge hit for Sony as well as being a great action game. The sequels that came followed the same patter or action/adventure linear path that had Kratos swing his now-iconic chain blades as he took on the Greek gods themselves. I admits, I never moved beyond the sequel, as I felt the game never offered much beyond a simple ac...
