    Gosh Darn It: I Liked This Little Derivative Game

    Twin Sector

    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 games. Of course, ... Read Full Review

    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 some context: I've c... Read Full Review

    Huge Sci-Fi FPS? Check. Runs on a computer powered by treadle? Check. Get it for $5 or less? Check. What's to lose?

    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 "Vivisector: Beast Insi... Read Full Review

    Get it for $5 and have some fun...sorta.

    DUSK-12

    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 "Bioshock 2" and someone to... Read Full Review

    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.) I like "X-Play... Read Full Review

    Scorpion: Disfigured

    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 limitations and flaws. I... Read Full Review

    Perfectly Serviceable Game

    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. What you won't get is ... Read Full Review

    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 Alex and Gordon in the ... Read Full Review

    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. Also, let me raise... Read Full Review

    Fallout 3

    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 just LIKED it. To pr... Read Full Review

    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 of sparkly effects, ... Read Full Review

    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 consider a blasphemous co... Read Full Review

    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 graphics were pretty ... Read Full Review

    Mediocre So Far--But Why Exactly?

    I'm having a very humdrum reaction to this game as I play it. And I'm entirely surprised by my own reaction because I went in with guns blazing and ready to rip. I guess my primary reaction is, the game seems so...STOP-N... Read Full Review
