REVIEWS Wayward Manor Review
Not even the power of Neil Gaiman and The Odd Gentlemen could save this game from a fate worse than death: a terrible score.

ONE PIECE Unlimited World Red Review
"Unlimited World Red"? More like "Sorta Limited Town and Extended Areas... Red. And Blue. And Some Yellow."

PREVIEWS Pillars of Eternity Preview
For Obsidian's crowdfunded love letter to Infinity Engine games like Icewind Dale and Baldur's Gate, I was impressed by its willingness to pull back the curtain and let me see the machinery behind it.

GR's Best of 2005 Awards

Racing RPG Sports Strategy Editor's Choice
From Tetris to Bejeweled, great puzzle games are simple, addictive and smart. Go ahead and apply those adjectives to our two winners.

 

PUZZLE GAME OF THE YEAR!

Lumines

Publisher: Ubisoft
Developer: Q Entertainment
Platform: PSP

 

Still one of the best games for the PSP, Lumines merges the challenge of a brilliantly designed puzzler with the style of an eclectic multi-media artist. For months, this brain-drainer was the only thing keeping our PSPs from gathering dust in the corner. That's a pretty amazing task for a mere puzzle game, but Lumines is much more than that. It's the best of 2005.

 

RUNNER-UP!

Meteos

Publisher: Nintendo
Developer: Q Entertainment
Platform: DS

Another puzzle winner from developer Q Entertainment? Yup. During 2005's summer doldurms, Meteos proved to be a breath of fresh air, addictive as crack and far less harmful. While at the outset it seems like just another block shifter, the game's innovative use of the touch screen results in a unique, uptempo flickfest.
