Gosh Darn It: I Liked This Little Derivative Game
Derivative? Check. Average graphics? Check. A development team of maybe a dozen German or Russian or Ukranian folks? Check. Rather clunky localization? Check. I'm such a sucker for these types of g...
Deus Ex: Invisible War
DX:IW--The Definition of Gray Morality
At the time of this writing, there are 148 other Gamespot-user reviews of DX:IW (this review regards the PC version of the game), so I'll ditch the plot synopsis since you can get it elsewhere. First ...
Vivisector: Beast Within
Huge Sci-Fi FPS? Check. Runs on a computer powered by treadle? Check. Get it for $5 or less? Check. What's to lose?
Here I am again reviewing a game that is 5 years old, but I'm just now getting around to playing it. Go figure. You can read about the general feel and narrative of the Ukranian-made sci-fi FPS "Vi...
Get it for $5 and have some fun...sorta.
If you're playing a game like "Dusk-12," you know what you are in for. Anyone giving this game a low score went into this experience completely unaware of reality. If you just finished playing "Biosho...
You Are Empty
Great Environment, Neat Story, Horrible AI
Having just written a much-too-long review of another 'Underdog game' called "Scorpion: Disfigured" (check it, you might like the game if you're a masochist like me), I'll keep this short. (OK, I lied...
Only Underdog Gamers Need Apply
I got "Scorpion: Disfigured" (German-developed and released in 2009?) from a UK eBay seller for about $14. I seriously doubt the game will ever be released domestically, considering its technical limi...
Exodus from the Earth
Perfectly Serviceable Game
Hey, what do you want? Exodus from the Earth (all the cool kids call it EFTE, man) is a Ukranian-made FPS sci-fi throwback that will probably run fine on a machine powered by guinea pigs on wheels. Wh...
ShellShock 2: Blood Trails
Shellshock 2: Benefit of the Doubt
If there were such a term as an "Underdog Gamer," I guess I would be it. Everyone can fawn over the next Halo-killer, gush over GOW2's graphics, or wax philosophical about the characterizations of Ale...
Left 4 Dead
Nice Settings & Voice Work, But So-So Cooperation
With everyone focused on the multiplayer barfing-on-your-target mayhem of Left for Dead, there are two elements of the single-player game many reviewers have failed to mention that I'll enumerate here...
Can I Take A Jab At This?
OK. No one is going to read this, because thousands of people have already reviewed this "exceptional" game and declared it "The Beginning of a New Era in Gaming History." Fine. I liked it. But I ...
Funny "Unfinished" Bit
This is not an overall review; simply put, I am playing Legendary for free (uh, I got it as a gift, maybe, uh, yeah, that's it...), and in this freebie context, the game is fine, fun enough, has lots ...
Silent Hill: Homecoming
Silent Hill Homecoming vs. Alone in the Dark
As a longtime "Silent Hill" devotee (yes, all the way back to anxiously watching the game trailers with that spooky mandolin music before the first one dropped), allow me to make what some might consi...
Give This Euro-Game A Break!
There are probably only a few hundred folks (if even) in the US who have bothered importing the UK version of this game to play it. Personally, I had low-to-no hopes for it at the outset. Though the g...
