REVIEWS Samurai Warriors 4-II Review
Using mighty warriors to slay thousands of enemy fighters sounds fantastic, but does this game make the genocidal journey worthwhile?

Windows 10 Review for Dummies

After all these years, and growing up with Windows 3.1, I have seen an entire evolution of computers and software. Touch screens and large resolutions were a pipe dream just 15 years ago. Now it's the norm. Going from a Packard Bell (yes, before HP) that couldn't run 3D Ultra Mini...

If it's not entirely action, it's probably an action/adventure. We see a lot of these over the course of a year, but most are little more than standard platformers.

These two, though, ain't.



Shadow of the Colossus

Publisher: Sony
Developer: Sony
Platform: PS2


The first time we glimpsed Shadow of the Colossus, we were stunned by its stark landscapes, morose characters and pathological obsession with giants. Would a game comprised almost exclusively of boss fights be worth it?

Yes. Yes in a big way. Riding acorss the barren wastelands on the coolest horse since Sea Biscuit, scaling a massive behemoth, holding on for dear life while trying to plunge a tiny sword into its massive dome, riding the emotional rollercoaster of ambigous morality - this is what a great action/adventure game is made of. We doff our caps to the wildly creative minds behind this truly epic experience.




Publisher: Majesco
Developer: DoubleFine
Platform: Xbox | PS2
This is not the first honor we've given Tim Shafer's brainchild - it scored a GR Best of E3 2002 award, if you'll believe it. For a game many thought dead, Psychonauts pulled a Jesus out of its goggled hat by rising up from its ashes and saving the platform genre from utter boredom. Wicked level design, fun gameplay and absolutely demented humor makes Raz and company a smart(ass) pick.
