  • Delve Deeper (Review) PC

    Posted by on July 24, 2010 under PC, Reviews
    Take a moment and think back to the heyday of classic 16-bit computers. The Atari ST and Commodore Amiga were the platforms of choice for computer gamers during the mid 1980's and late 1990's. The 16-bit computer era gave birth to a multitude of classic games that continue to survive today in one form or another. (Team 17's Alien Breed, for example, has been resurrected on today's modern platforms... more.
  • Call of Atlantis (Review) iPhone/iPod/iPad

    Posted by on July 22, 2010 under Portables, Reviews
    Bejeweled is a fine game. Better than Tetris, in my humble opinion, and it's worth having one of the innumerable varieties on any iPhone. But not this version. Call of Atlantis presents the well-known "match-three" puzzle game as a quest of recovering seven crystals of power from ancient civilizations such as Rome, Greece and Babylon to "restore the Altar of Poseidon and save the fabled sunk... more.
  • Limbo – Review – Xbox Live

    Posted by on July 19, 2010 under Reviews, Xbox 360
    Limbo is similar to games like Another World (Out of this World in the US) and Ico. You are given brain teaser after brain teaser, compounded by endless puzzles that make you feel like you are in limbo. One puzzle can have you stumped for hours. Some of the puzzles feel like they serve no purpose other than to frustrate you, and make you pull your hair out. Limbo is exactly what it means... more.
  • Alien Breed: Impact (Review) PC

    Posted by on July 18, 2010 under Euro, PC, Reviews
    What does a spaceship accident, alien creatures, and running around collecting keycards and unlocking doors all have in common? Think Team 17’s latest game, Alien Breed: Impact for PC. After your spaceship crashes into a drifting space hull, your mission is to investigate the floating hulk for any survivors and, well, to collect keycards and unlock doors. The majority of AB:I is spent doing j... more.
  • Guitar Hero (Review) iPhone/iPod/iPad

    Posted by on July 12, 2010 under Portables, Reviews
    Maybe I just don't get it. I prefer Coltrane to Cobain and musicians who focus on licks instead of looks. Guitar Hero for iPhone has admirable traits, not the least of which is the $2.99 starter-pack price. The touch-screen interface has novel aspects compared to a couple of other major players in the genre. But ultimately what you're playing is a hyper-slick variant of the ancient catch-the-bo... more.
  • Zombie Wonderland (Review) iPhone/iPod/iPad

    Posted by on July 9, 2010 under Portables, Reviews
    What is it about zombies and iPhones? Maybe the invasion is an allegory for a civilianization willingly turning into Pod people controlled by the decrees of the Apple overlords. Maybe it symbolizes the severance of intelligent communication between humans as eyes and ears became merely an extension of their devices. Or maybe it's just because zombies are easy enemy fodder for game programmers w... more.
  • Puppet War FPS (Review) iPhone/iPod/iPad

    Posted by on July 2, 2010 under Portables, Reviews
    Once upon a time there was a stellar children's show where hallucinations, bulimia, vagrancy and rumored homosexuality didn't threaten the fabric of the community. Bilingualism was good, Pox News unabashedly broadcast trash and Monsterpiece Theater's "Me, Claudius" wasn't elitism run amok. Then the forces of commercialism and political correctness invaded. Lessons became dumber, profits took pr... more.
  • Drums Challenge Charlie Morgan (Review) iPhone/iPod

    Posted by on July 1, 2010 under Portables, Reviews
    Guitar Hero has arrived for the iPhone and gamers, obeying the decrees of Activision, are forking their money over in droves. So, to unleash some cliches of my own, I'm marching to the beat of a different drummer with some alternative music. It might not be as entertaining as the admittedly reasonably-priced Port-O-GH (which will get scrutinized in a future rant despite its critic proofness), b... more.
  • Deathsmiles Limited Edition (US Feature Review) Xbox 360

    Posted by on June 27, 2010 under Reviews, Xbox 360
    Deathsmiles is a dark, twisted look into an alternate world populated by missing children. A rift in the real world is responsible for pulling children into this separate reality. Known as Gilverado, this world is separate from our own and frozen in the early 20th century. Dior, an elderly man, decides to take care of the lost children that suddenly appear in Gilverado. Our four heroines, Wyndia, ... more.
  • Soldner-X 2 (Review) Playstation 3

    Posted by on June 24, 2010 under PS3, Reviews
    After the virus wars of 3104 AD, humanity faces a new challenge. The D’aarg, a technologically advanced alien race, is conquering defenseless solar systems at an alarming rate. Humanity’s technology is not capable of fending off this new threat, and so a project begins to develop enhanced star fighters to take on this new enemy.
