Robinson: The Journey Review

In The Garden of Eden, Baby

HIGH The ‘diorama-vision’ of my robot sidekick must be seen to be believed.
LOW Falling off a cliff because the game thought looking at it meant walking towards it.
WTF OMG pangolins are the cutest things I’ve ever seen.

HIGH Sweet, glorious zombie destroying violence.

LOW There’s more than a minute of downtime between each enemy wave.

WTF “Sometimes… I wish I was a cat.”


Gears of War 4 Review

Blown Back To Life

gow4

HIGH The best, most enjoyable Gears since the series’ debut.

LOW The story might be too scaled back for its own good.

WTF I never thought Gears would sink deep into microtransactions. I was wrong.


Beholder Review

Das Leben der Anderen

beholder01

HIGH Getting out of someone’s apartment just in the nick of time.

LOW Hearing the loudspeaker spewing propaganda for, like, a straight hour.

WTF That English translation.

Where Are My Bookends?

dr2-03

HIGH Chainsaw + Kayak Paddle = the most fun you’ll ever have navigating a horde of zombies.

LOW That last boss fight somehow manages to be a worse version of Dead Rising‘s worst boss fight.

WTF Chuck, you’ve been framed for mass murder, so stop telling people who you are. And lose the jacket.
