REVIEWS Funk of Titans Review
It’s always particularly tough to find the funk of a game when it already doesn’t have much rhythm.

Citizens of Earth Review
Do you like turn-based RPGs? Do you enjoy laughter? Does your hair contain enough product to qualify you to be VP of an entire planet? If so, then you'll enjoy playing Citizens of Earth.

Finally Broke My Crowdfunding Rule
By oblivion437
Posted on 01/12/15
I've had a long-standing rule to avoid getting involved in any sort of crowdfunded activities.  I didn't donate to Shadowrun or Wasteland, but I did buy and enjoy both of them (I'm plugging both of those games right now, just so you know they're good).  I haven't...

GR's Best of 2004 Awards

Posted on Thursday, January 1 @ 12:13:14 Eastern by Duke_Ferris

Welcome to our nightmare.

Trying to determine GR's Top 5 Games of the Year was a painful experience for everyone involved. The truth is that there were plenty of games worthy of being in our Top 5 - far more than just 5 - and the process of weeding out the great from the greater was wrought with anxiety, arguments, and at least one known death. It got so grim, we even considered doing a Top 10 instead just to honor more games, but then we realized that would be exactly double the workload and promptly embraced the Top 5 idea again.

So despise, discuss, or defend the list to your heart's content, but don't dare disagree that all five of the following games totally rocked 2004.


Rome: Total War

Publisher: Activision
Developer: The Creative Assembly
Platform: PC

Forget all those silly epic movies - if you want to experience largescale warfare, look no further than Rome. A technical marvel, Rome: Total War stunned PC gamers with its impressive scope, intricate detail and inimitable delivery. Strategy fans simply couldn't do any better in 2004.


Splinter Cell: Pandora Tomorrow

Publisher: Ubisoft
Developer: Ubisoft
Platform: Xbox

Sam Fisher goes online and kicks all kinds of ass in this fantastic sequel. Pandora Tomorrow's compelling cat-and-mouse multiplayer proves that you don't need giant guns and hectic action to be a super agent.


Katamari Damacy

Publisher: Namco
Developer: Namco
Platform: PS2

It's the little engine that could! Katamari Damacy rolls right past the overhyped heavy hitters and earns a spot in our Top 5 due to its innovative gameplay and impeccable style. Five months later and we're STILL singing those damn songs.


Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas

Publisher: Rockstar
Developer: Rockstar
Platform: PS2

Look, we're not thrilled that GTA keeps winning GR awards, but no one does what Rockstar does. San Andreas is bigger and better than its Game of the Year winning forbears, a massive undertaking that is without peers as a single-player game. It just keeps going, and going, and going....
