Lands of Lore: Throne of Chaos   Add to game list
Rating of: 2/5

This Land is Your Land. Really, You Can Keep It.

As a fan of the Dungeon Crawler subgenre of RPGs going way back, I was pleased when I stumbled upon an unknown-to-me series in that genre on GOG. The ‘Lands of Lore’ trilogy, developed by Westwood Studios and originally published by Virgin Interactive, begins with “Lands of Lore: The Throne of Chaos” (“LoL”), which immediately got my attention with the picture of my late paternal gran...

Rage 2  Add to game list
Rating of: 4/5

Power Through

“RAGE 2” is the sequel that no one asked for and no one expected. Way back in 2011, a year before my official return from complete PC gaming apostasy, id Software – the brain trust behind the very (dismal) origins of the FPS genre with series like ‘DOOM,’ ‘Quake,’ and ‘Heretic/Hexen’ – released a new IP for the first time in over a decade: “RAGE.” The game was met with mix...

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...

Tony Hawk's Pro Skater 2  Add to game list
Rating of: 3.5/5

Solid port of the PlayStation classic that manages to faithfully maintain the spirit of the original.

Doom (2016)  Add to game list
Rating of: 3.5/5

Fast and Furious Demon Slaying

Doom has been at the forefront of the FPS genre since its early inception, and was rebooted once in Doom 3 back in 2007, and now this new version - with a sequel already on the way. Not much has changed as Doom remains a pinnacle of FPS insanity - buoyed by the fast-paced, frantic gameplay and pulse-pounding soundtrack. Yet for all the updates and additions, Doom remains pretty much the same - bo...

EnHanced  Add to game list
Rating of: 3.5/5

Tiny Windows…

“EnHanced,” which I believe is pronounced “En-Aitch-Ants-Ed,” is one of those out-of-nowhere pet-project type of Indie games that can be found commonly on websites like GameJolt, Itch.io, and NewGrounds, but which don’t all-that-often find their way to Steam or the other big digital markets. With Desura dead-and-buried, it is only through the grace of Lord GabeN and his destruction of a...

Armada  Add to game list
Rating of: 3.5/5

Armadaone Bites the Dust - But is Mostly Enjoyable

When we get desperate for local co-op, we get desperate for local co-op and dusting off a gem from 1999 might be the biggest stretch the MeltedJoystick crew has made yet. Heck, we had to fix the damn Sega Dreamcast (via some YouTube videos) before we could launch the game. But fix it we did and Armada was reborn anew. Despite being older than Millie Bobby Brown, Jacob Tremblay and Isabela Moner -...

Demolition Racer  Add to game list
Rating of: 3.5/5

"Demoliton Racer"

Infogrames jump on the Destruction Derby bandwagon with some pretty decent results. It's fast, the action is constant and the scoring system - which counts both impacts and spins - uses a system that combines crash scores with a race position multiplier making each equally important and so is much fairer and more consistent than that of the Psygnosis games. It's not as good as DD2 thanks to infer...

Jarrett & Labonte Stock Car Racing  Add to game list
Rating of: 3.5/5

"TOCA World Touring Cars"

AKA TOCA World Touring Cars, the third TOCA game in the series has a more forgiving difficulty level which makes it more accessible but less exciting to play. The physics are also slightly off, the cars not having quite enough weight and heft to them, but the constant overtaking and body contact make it more fun to play than the average PS1 racing sim.
