    Fun despite its age

    Bully: Scholarship Edition

    Fun despite its age

    Even though the game was released six years ago, it is still a lot of fun to play. It is a sandbox similar to GTA, only you play as an American high school student, so there is no sex and murder, just making out and fist... Read Full Review

    One of my favorites

    The Black Mirror

    One of my favorites

    I first played this game back in 2004, and have replayed it several times since then. I just finished it again and decided to update my review. If the rating I gave the game and the fact that I have replayed it multiple ... Read Full Review

    Cosmetic changes can't disguise outdated game

    Leisure Suit Larry: Reloaded

    Cosmetic changes can't disguise outdated game

    The original Leisure Suit Larry game came out in 1987, with a VGA remake following in 1991, and it hasn't aged well. The current remake features modern graphics and introduces voiced dialogue, but other than that, the ga... Read Full Review

    An improvement over AC3, still no masterpiece

    Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag

    An improvement over AC3, still no masterpiece

    AC4 is in some ways a return to the roots, but mostly continues the trend of steering farther and farther off course (get it? naval metaphor!). Let's dive (heh heh) right into it. The plot is more in line with the origin... Read Full Review

    Afraid to tread new ground

    Batman: Arkham Origins

    Afraid to tread new ground

    In AO you get to visit Arkham City before it became Arkham City. Basically, it's the same map (a bit extended), except everything looks normal. Seeing some locations in their "glory days" is fun, but not enough to overco... Read Full Review

    Improved, but not new

    Tom Clancy's Splinter Cell: Blacklist

    Improved, but not new

    Blacklist feels like a more polished version of Conviction. A rating system has been reintroduced, and this time your rating directly affects how much money you earn and, consequently, how many upgrades you can buy. The ... Read Full Review

    A lot of fun, but also a lot of frustration.

    Mortal Kombat Komplete Edition

    A lot of fun, but also a lot of frustration.

    If you want to kick ass in 2D, you need look no further than Mortal Kombat 9. It has good graphics, many characters to choose from, tons of combos to learn, a lot of arenas and different game modes, both on- and offline.... Read Full Review

    Story sucks, but gameplay is fun.

    Mirror's Edge

    Story sucks, but gameplay is fun.

    First-person parkour doesn't sound like something that would work, but Mirror's Edge pulls it off. Seeing the world through your character's eyes makes her stunts less cinematic, but more immersive, and adds to the thril... Read Full Review

    It's Diablo.

    The Incredible Adventures of Van Helsing

    It's Diablo.

    Van Helsing is a Diablo clone, the only real difference being the setting. It draws on the movie, but has its own distinct style, which utilizes elements of Slavic, rather than Celtic and Germanic mythology. The graphics... Read Full Review

    Too little too late.

    Assassin's Creed III: The Tyranny of King Washington - The Redemption

    Too little too late.

    I'll just list my impressions. Some of them apply to Part 3 specifically, others to the entire DLC. Connor's superpowers make no sense. Thankful as I am for the ability to zoom across the city (it's not like there is ... Read Full Review

    Devil May Cry 4

    Maybe I'm too jaded, but I don't like it.

    The first thing that displeased me as I started playing the game was that I had no idea what the hell was going on. Yes, I understand that this is the fourth game in a series, so it assumes most players will be familiar ... Read Full Review

    Prototype 2 improves upon its predecessor by introducing a more colorful protagonist, more enemy types, and a more fluid kind of combat (you can now leap over enemies' heads, counter their attacks, and bind two offensive... Read Full Review

    Solid, but kept down by a weak plot.

    Tom Clancy's Splinter Cell: Conviction

    Solid, but kept down by a weak plot.

    If Chaos Theory focused too much on stealth, Conviction's main campaign has too little of it. There are few situations that you can't shoot your way out of (and in some situations that's actually the only way out), and t... Read Full Review

    Who are you, and what have you done with 47?

    "Hey, I've got an idea for the new Hitman game. Let's take most of the things that make Hitman great and throw them away!" Sounds absurd, and yet this is exactly what IO Interactive did with Absolution. Instead of travel... Read Full Review

    Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, Part 2

    Black Mirror III: Final Fear

    A nail in Black Mirror's coffin.

    This game manages to ruin even the few good things that Black Mirror 2 introduced. When I played BM2, it was fun to see the familiar locations from the original game in a new light, but stuff like that gets old fast, and... Read Full Review

    Interesting concept, but suffers from lack of variety.

    In this game you play as a mob boss possessed by an evil force called the Darkness, which gives him supernatural powers, but only when he is in the dark. Naturally, there are people who want to get their hands on that po... Read Full Review
